Elizabethtown

Now I'm not sure about the movie, although it is Cameron Crowe.

But there's a great trailer where he talks about nothing but the music on the Apple website:

It's pretty cool.

I'm really interested in the film, despite the Orlando Bloom-ness of it

I think the film looks pretty blah. Early reviews of it have been mixed. Kirsten Dunst must be one of the most unappealing leading ladies I've ever seen (since she has grown up.)

Thumbs up to that, HelloAngel. She's frumpy and too skinny.

I love Cameron Crowe, but it didn't get a great reception at the Toronto Film Festival. I think they went back for reediting or something after that?

I started a thread about this movie here eons ago the soundtrack is listed on the movie site

www.elizabethtown.com

I must admit I will see anything w/ Orlando Bloom in it. I might even camp out at the theater..

I hope it's not a disappointment

Cameron Crowe - good, despite Vanilla Sky

Orlando Bloom - still haven't proven himself as a lead or decent actor as far as I'm concerned, but I'm curious to see how he fares in a genre other than medieval/fantasy.

It's out next Friday, I will be there. Ashton Kutcher?

NY Daily News

Don't even think of believing rumors out of Hollywood that "Elizabethtown" director Cameron Crowe is unhappy with Orlando Bloom's performance in the romantic comedy, which was widely panned after film festival screenings.

When a Lowdown spy close to the production reported that a "disappointed" Crowe thought Bloom was "flat as a board" in the movie, which opens Oct. 14, Crowe himself called this column twice to do some energetic damage control.

"I absolutely love Orlando's performance - I love everything he did," insisted the director of "Jerry Maguire," "Almost Famous" and "Vanilla Sky."

"I had high hopes for him, and he met my high hopes," Crowe continued. "I think what he has in his eyes and his face is the complete story of the character, in every scene he's in. He is a deeply soulful guy, and the way he portrays a character thinking about suicide is completely riveting to me."

Crowe said that in cutting 18 minutes from the film festival version - which my colleague Jack Mathews saw and rated "a big disappointment" - he has beefed up Bloom's presence.

"What I've done, really, is focus more on his performance," he said. "The movie is Orlando's journey. I'm really proud of the movie, and I love the whole process that brought us to this cut."

The 48-year-old Crowe - who briefly cast, then fired, Ashton Kutcher from the role - stressed that Bloom was his first choice all along.

"It all worked out great. I stand by every bit of the process. I'm completely proud of the movie and I invite anyone to come see it any part of the day."

The best scenes in the movie are probably what's been showing on the trailer. Rent it.
