you kidding? Doug Liman has been a hermit. believe me; he has jobs if he wants them. swingers
was an indie darling. go
was a well received follow-up in the Pulp Fiction era. He's only responsible for the first, and best, Bourne
movie. I'd have to say mr. & mrs. smith
was the only sub par movie, and for being a star-driven vehicle, it's pretty good.
I'm skeptical about jumper
. I liked blade
for being what it was. and I loved batman begins
, but the other two blade movies were shit. and the last one (written and directed by Goyer) was complete shit (could've been stv and I wouldn't have noticed). It will be interesting to see what happens here. Liman was clearly overwhelmed by Pitt and Jollie, but if he can reign-in Goyer's script and samuel l. jackson's predilection to over-act, it could be really good. premise is "new" enough to be interesting.
Life ducks, and you sigh.
