New Trailer: Vicky Christina Barcelona

Woody Allen has only made one decent movie in the past two decades.? And really, if someone were to argue with me that Match Point wasn’t all that great I probably wouldn’t put up much of a fight.? But still, I thought it was good because it was so un-Woody Allen-esque.

Apparantly, the guy has just outright given up and made a movie wherein he reenacts his sexual fantasies.? Think of Vicky Christina Barcelona as is SFW-Brown Bunny. Anyway, the movie is about two American girls (ScarJo and Rebecca Hall) who travel to wait for it … Barcelona and encounter Penelope Cruz and the softer side of Anton Cigurgh (he’s a painter!).? Cue romantic entanglements and ScarJo on her back for lots of the movie.

I’m glad Woody Allen just said “ah the hell with it.? I wanna make a movie where Scarlett Johansson has lots of sex.”? Still, this trailer definitely makes me not want to see the movie and actually makes me think it’s a foreign commercial for perfume or a Spanish Cava.? Mmmm… sparkling white.

This is the third movie with Woody Allen and ScarJo.

    Maybe I should amend and have written the past decade. Because I’ll concede his run from 89-97, starting with Crimes and Misdemeanors and ending with Descontructing Harry was top notch. Still, there’s no getting around the incest.

    Bonus SAT points for use of the word cretin. I’ll concede in the early hours I was a bit harsh on ole’ Woody. He has made some good movies, it’s just few have left a lasting impression upon me overall.

    Also bonus points for saying I’m the product of incest in a post about Woody Allen, who, while not “technically” committed incest himself, still fell in love and married his step-daughter. Text book use of irony right there.

    What a cretin. Woody Allen has made many amazing films since 1988. See, you exemplify the huge problem with the Internet – any braindead product of incest can post their idiotic comments for the world to read. Die, please – and soon!
