I’m really fucking torn right now. Our boys at DailyGrindHouse posted the trailer to Birdemic 2, and I’m all “Whatever… It’s no fun when you make a bad movie on purpose.”
But I check it out anyway. Call me a glutton for punishment. Well… It’s only a trailer, but I’m having trouble spotting that *wink wink* *nudge nudge* from the performers, which is both bizarre and impressive. Either James Nguyen is actually a fantastic director pulling the greatest troll job ever, or he is honestly passionately into bland performances. Most directors don’t even know what it means to control their actors, this guy sucks the life right the fuck out of them, and they deliver their lines seriously. Amazing.
Them having bad sound and camera work again is a little silly considering that they had to have a bigger budget with the cult status of the first film. C’mon guys, fix the sound. There’s still time and it’s not going to add to the appeal a second time.
So this is my question…
Is the director really that naive? Is he taking another stab at it to prove to us that his vision for the first film does work, that we *will* understand that this is a romantic thriller?
Is this a troll job? They’re making a shitty movie for the sake of making a shitty movie and cashing in on it?
