    GRAVITY is the most beautifully photographed one, but I get the feeling they are showing you the whole movie. Not that I won’t see it, I probably will. RUNNER RUNNER looks interesting. T.S. SPIVET has that AMELIE magical/fantasy quality that I like. As always, thanks for putting this together T 🙂

      Gravity is drawing me in! (haha, had to use the pun). Thanks for watching. I am curious to see what else they have left to show. Hoping they have more than just what they are using to draw people to it.

      T.S. Spivet has my attention for sure. Thank you for the kind comment!

    I’m really interested in Gravity and Kill Your Darlings. The Keanu films got me somewhat interested but they seem like films that can go either way.


    • September 7, 2013 12:46 am

      Me too Issy, Thanks for adding your thoughts. I think I like 47 Ronin a bit more now myself when it comes to the Keanu films. how about you?

    I saw Best Man Down last year at TCFF, Justin was actually at one of the panels promoting it. It was called something else though. I posted the 2nd Gravity trailer on Five for the Fifth today too, I’m even more intrigued now.


    • September 7, 2013 12:47 am

      Best Man Down didn’t look interesting to me until this trailer. hmm, we’ll see. Did you like what Justin had to say about it?

    I’ve actually managed to see a couple of these films. The Man of Tai Chi, which I thought was going to be really cool, is all kinds of terrible. Very close to my list of the worst of the year. The Summit is pretty good. I find mountain disaster films much of a muchness generally, but it is definitely a good one.


    • September 7, 2013 12:48 am

      Sad to hear about TMOTC but I really have had no expectations for it, so I’m not surprised. I am curious, like you, about The Summit though. Thanks for reporting on The Man of Tai Chi for us.

    HEY! T.S. Spivot! Montana? They filmed that in Montreal 🙂 I was wondering when we’d have some news on that 🙂 I like that sort of story!


    • September 7, 2013 12:49 am

      The filmed it in Montreal? I didn’t know that! How cool. So many neat filming opportunities around you. One day you must take the opportunity to be in a film. 🙂


      • September 7, 2013 11:46 pm

        Its not so easy for that. At least I haven’t figured out how to do it. That might be a fun idea!

        They film a lot of movies in Montreal now. Its cheaper and you can turn downtown or chinatown to NYC settings and then Old Montreal works for Europe backgrounds 😉 Or you can do what Warm Bodies did and just revamped the whole area.

    It does seem like they are showing a bit too much of Gravity now but I can’t say I’m not intrigued. In fact, the trailers are breathtaking as standalone short films!


  7. September 16, 2013 3:18 pm

    Thanks for including The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivot as I hadn’t heard of it, and it looks brilliant. I’m also looking forward to seeing Gravity and Best Man Down 🙂


    • September 17, 2013 8:32 pm

      I am so glad whenever someone visits and finds something new they didn’t know before! Thanks for watching. I was quite delighted by that trailer as well. 🙂


      • September 28, 2013 8:09 am

        No problem, I really look forward to your posts as I learn about so many interesting films from you 🙂
