How has Stealth from 2005 not been covered yet? It was made by Rob Cohen, who had done The Fast and the Furious and xXx, and it shamelessly borrows elements from the likes of Top Gun (fighter pilots), Short Circuit (struck by lightning) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (intelligent robotic being) to not that much success. Not only did it bomb big time at the box office, it brought down Josh Lucas's leading man career and almost brought Jamie Foxx and Jessica Biel's fame to new lows. Please see this!
Is anybody familiar with the movie Timeline (2003), which was based on the novel by Michael Crichton and was directed by Richard Donner? Not only was this a critical (12% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a box office disaster ($43 million worldwide on a budget of $80 million), it was also the last book of Crichton's that was made to the big screen before his death in 2008. It also has a surprisingly large cast from the likes of Paul Walker, Gerard Butler, Frances O'Connor, Billy Connolly, David Thewlis, Ethan Embry, Anna Friel and Michael Sheen! It's amazing that Butler's career managed to survive before he made 300 a few years later and not even some decent actors can save this from becoming a cheesefest. Here's the trailer if you want to view it.
Now, I am genuinely reluctant to recommend this film because I won't lie, it can be kinda a bore. But every single time I think about it, I am just reminded about the TRILLIONS of unanswered questions and plot holes. Warren Beatty's motivation in this entire movie is invisible, there is never any answer as to why he decided to cheat. The Garry Shandling-Goldie Hawn subplot is mystifying, I still cannot determine the point of Andie MacDowell and Jenna Elfman's characters, there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON why Diane Keaton finds out about the affair, Charton Heston and his wife are clearly insane, the way that the get the title from the movie is god-awful and I am absolutely INFURIATED that Natassja Kinski got a title card. If anything, there are 5 reasons to watch this Terrible Re-Editing and Direction/The Amount of time it took to make it The Amount it cost to make this movie Rich-People Problems: The Movie The fact that this film could legitimately be Warren Beatty's LAST FILM Oh, and this is an R-Rated RomCom Overall, tough to sit through, but worth it in retrospect. And here's the trailer (P.S. there are scenes in the trailer that aren't in the movie. THE EDITING IS TERRIBLE) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPX_1XQtmB4
