Yesterday, I posted a couple of posters and an early review for The Road. Now, more reviews have surfaced, along with these five clips, as well.
I haven’t watched the clips and I don’t think I will. I’ve decided that I’m done with all internet clips. They’re always extremely uneventful and frustratingly out-of-context, and a couple of times in my life they’ve served to (unjustifiably, I might add) lower my expectations.
For this movie, long-awaited by myself for not only being an adaptation of a book I loved, but also for being the second film by a filmmaker whose first film I loved, I think I’m going to keep myself as pure as possible. It’s the same reason I didn’t want to go to Avatar Day.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t watch ‘em. And in the meantime, check out a couple more reviews for the movie. Here’s a very positive one from The Guardian, another positive one from The Hollywood Reporter, and another positive one from ScreenDaily, and finally a sadly negative one from Variety. They all seem to be using the word, “bleak.”
