The last half decent movie was Avatar.



I mean, it looked cool. Other than that, it was pretty good for a comedy.

I watched the first one because my brother's into the series and wanted me to watch it. I thought it was really boring.

There's a scene in Shrek 2 (animated product placement!) when the city is being destroyed and a bunch of people are sitting in a Starbucks. They get scared and run across the street into another Starbucks. I always thought that scene was funny.

I'm not sure how to embed videos, but here's the link

Almost all films have blatant product placement these days. Helps to pay for the film, but ridiculous when in situations one would not normally find the product for sure.

Anyway, I wanted to mention the new ET film Earth to ECHO

I just wanted to warn everyone, if you have even the littlest bit of motion sickness, don't go.

It is filmed like Blair Witch, only the previews don't indicate that.

I had to close my eyes during more than 1/2 of it or risk getting sick to my stomach. Even my hubby who never gets motion sick was queasy by the end of the movie.


Too bad, the kids were good actors, the storyline cute for everyone, it would have been a great little family movie if not for the cinematography.




Thanks for the Heads Up!
I wanted to watch that, until now.
Same thing with Cloverfield, I waited an hour and a half for the real movie to start, instead just a bunch of camera jogging.
There was that one with the kids that got super powers that was filmed with same technique, just not nearly as tough to handle

Product placement itself doesn't bother me. When done well, the product is just another piece of set design. When done poorly, it's laughable. Really, these products are all around us in our everyday lives anyhow. The balance is to draw subtle attention to the product without making it so blatant it's irritating.



Here's a brief history of product placement of films. I'll bet you'll never guess where they end it ...

You forgot to mention the 3hrs of your life that you lost.

I saw it in an Imax.... Worst thing I ever did.

The overall story was total garbage. It seemed to have been written by trained monkeys.

Im so tempted to bet you that even trained monkeys could write something much better than that drivel!
