Perfume Commercial Or Trailer For Tarsem’s THE IMMORTALS? You Decide!
There’s no denying that the trailer for Tarsem’s latest movie, The Immortals, is filled with style. But the style looks like a Calvin Klein ad, or an old REM video or something. Actually, it looks like a Zack Snyder movie if Zack Snyder had no pulp ‘fun’ sensibility, just a masturbatory obsession with framing shots. There’s a bit or two in there that looks actually thrilling - the guy going into the ocean - but mostly it looks like Motion Tableau The Movie.
On top of that all the line readings are horrible. A bunch of stupid, declamatory statements and some shouting, with Mickey Rourke showing up dressed as the Greek Frank The Bunny. I don’t know… nothing about this appeals. And if you’re a Snyder hater but fawn over this, you’re spiritually bankrupt.
