    Doesn't actually look all that great. Besides, whenever I see Shia LeBeouf is in a film, it tells me to stay away.

    I was looking forward to this movie until I saw the trailer. Now I think it looks really stupid. I'm sure I'll see it anyway, but I am not looking forward to it anywhere near as much now as I was 6 months ago.

    Couldn't they have picked a more attractive woman to play his daughters role? I concur fellas. It doesn't look as appealing as the concept originally sounded. Oh well.

    Looks like Oliver Stone is losing his touch. "W." was absolute crap as well.

    Stone's last great film was the "Nixon" biopic.

    I remember saying to a friend after seeing The Doors film, Stone makes very pretty films. That's really what he's good at. His films always look great. The writing is never clever. My guess is he wanted to do this film because he's just like Michael Moore. He loves bashing capitalism and the U.S. while living comfortably in the U.S. off the millions he makes on his films.

    "Nixon" and every Stone film prior to 1995, they were all at least pretty good. Even his "bad" films, per se, like Salvador and The Doors, were very entertaining.

    BTW-I heard he was dripped out on acid when he did "Natural Born Killers" and "Any Given Sunday".

    He did mushrooms with the other producers, writers, and the cast while doing Natural Born Killers, he was arrested in 1999 for drugs but it may have had nothing to do with the filming/writing of Any Given Sunday.

    You can tell he was constantly on a 'shroom trip during Natural Born Killers. That entire movie is a mind****.

    Indeed. I wasn't much of a fan.
