Trailers are now playing for the March 22 release of 'Olympus Has Fallen,' an action thriller involving the president being taken hostage.
I'll watch it when it gets to cable - anything with Morgan Freeman is worth at least that, but it looks like the kind of excuse for a patriotic moment that just isn't my thing. "Looks Dumb" feels a little harsh - but it kinda does.
You know why I listed 'looks dumb' as a choice?
....because it looks dumb
What's with these movies making the North Koreans as a credible threat.
Please! The Salvation Army could kick their ass in a war!
ROK v. SA? I'd pay to see that on pay per view
Seriously, if they started anything it would end up as Korean BBQ.
I've seen commercials for it a few times, but didn't know the premise of it until I read this question. All I got out of the commercials is *BOOM!* *BANG!* *BA-BOOM!* Morgan Freeman is president *BOOM! BOOM!* *KA-POOSH!* *BANG!*
Exactly. I had to go to the Wikipedia page to even figure out what it was about... and Morgan Freeman isn't even the president!
Not opposed to Morgan Freeman being our ACTUAL president...
Hey, I'd even believe in God if Morgan Freeman were God.
Wait, he's not the president in that movie?
Well, that movie just went from "Eh, I'd give it a chance if my husband really wanted to see it" to "I'd only watch it if I were crazy bored and only after it came out on DVD and only if I didn't have to pay for said DVD."
He's the Speaker of the House. I'm guessing its a far more interesting role.
Morgan Freeman as Speaker of the House? Yeah, I'd watch C-SPAN as often as possible if that happened.
Dune was very interesting. A lot of hypo babble.
Does the president have a cyanide tooth?
No. Only Duke Lito in Dune.
Dune was very interesting. A lot of hypnotic babble.
Looks exactly like the kind of ill-thought-out, blow-stuff-up, run-of-the-mill action movie I like...
...looks like it...odd
^ that's for below
But oddly fits here as well maybe?
Oh, it odd. You bet your butt it odd. It odd like Donkey Cod!
Had to check it out. Looks worth watching
Did we lose the 'black eye' poll?
Yep the black eye got a black eye.
I see the black eye poll just below the SOH 2.0 poll. If it was gone, it reappeared.
Yeah- 'Tiny' responses on Google + & fixed it ;)
Crap... *intentional* typo followed by an unintentional one kind of blew the pun ????
Ah. I saw the flurry of G+ notifications fly by but haven't been able to tear myself away from SOH to read them yet.
Susan, we had better get Tony to add that carp word to the bad database.
that was supposed to be a ?, not an !
Sometimes spelled "carp" in an effort to not offend. Or pretend to not offend. I'm a fan of "Holy carp!" myself, but I imagine that offends also, but for a different reason. Or maybe both. (Am I making any sense? It hasn't been a good day for making sense, for me.)
I didn't realize "crap" was offensive. Or "hell" or "damn". Sorry if I've been the potty mouth of the group!
I use carp. And crap. And hell and damn. Maybe not as much as I like to.
But I have to say it has given me great pleasure to use "dick" any number of times today. And I'm not done yet.
I can't believe it's not auto-censored here, though.
Having just watched the trailer... I could do with more strategy & less special effects and action. I like reading similar stories by writers like Clancy & Baldacci.
I like those too, but after reading the NPR review, it doesn't seem like the story is as strong.
Well damn. But still: Morgan Freeman.
Oh for god's sake, Morgan Freeman is in it. Is there ANY question here?
Respect earned eternally.
Scary to imagine something like that happening in reality.
