Re: Rate the Days of Future Past trailer
I keep getting better and better vibes about the trailer.
I can understand what some people mean when they talk about "cheap TV movieish" visual style, it's very different from ie. how Winter Soldier looks right now.
...and that's, for me, part of the charm. There are real set pieces which is a thing I love and appreciate. The focus is on the characters, which I love and appreciate too. I'm all too confident that they will make the movie look good with the budget they have. There is certain simplistic warmth with how Singer constructs his X-men movies. Just think about X2 with all its memorable scenes. Even today, I wouldn't want to change them. There is this unique style that may look cheap at times, but somehow it adds to everything and it just works. And again, I believe the huge budget is going to be used well and I wouldn't worry even if I didn't love Singer's style all that much.
Seeing the Winter Soldier trailer made me sigh. How generic does that look? I got the feeling I don't really want to see the movie, but I probably will borrow it from someone sometime just to prepare to Avengers 2. I couldn't be more uninterested.
Even though I wouldn't say Singer is an action director (as others have agreed somewhere above that he isn't), in his X-men movies the action scenes make me root the guys/girls in a way that's really rare. When the overall setting, the characters, drama and humor work together firmly, the action has that much more of an impact. The really short action clips from the trailer look wonderful to me. I'm going to be emotionally invested like an emotional investor, I can already feel it.
