Matthew McConaughey-Gus van Sant “Sea of Trees” Has Made $2,730 in 5 Days Even the trailer sucks.

Gus van Sant has been making movies for 25 years. Generally they have received superb reviews. Sometimes the reviews are terrible, but not as bad as this film which is both a commercial and a critical failure, despite having three highly regarded actors.
Matthew McConaughey as Arthur Brennan
Naomi Watts as Joan Brennan
Ken Watanabe as Takumi Nakamura

A film about the contemplate life and death. reflection and affirmation of the will to live is tough to make. Otherwise lauded directors have produced films before on this subject that are critical failures.

One reason I almost no longer see movies in theaters is they aren't worth the price of admission any more. I'm content to let them be shown on basic cable, or Netflix. Sequels in particular leave me thinking "Please, don't make any more movies for this franchise."

Case in point, I watched Men in Black 3 last Saturday on Netflix.


I saw it again the other day on cable. I wasn't paying particular attention to it, as I was doing other things online (I often keep the TV on as background noise). On occasion I'd turn my head and watch.

Seen this way, and for the second time, it was better than on first viewing.

I'm still glad I didn't pay to see it.
Fresh out of clues. Did you really expect anything?
