I haven't seen a John Cusack movie since I started following his Tweets. As I've mentioned before, I see him in a completely different way now. And it's not flattering. I want to share that experience with you.

Below is the trailer for Shanghai, a movie that's been stuck on a shelf for over a year and still doesn't have a firm release date, though it's about to be released in China. It's got a lot of talent: Cusack, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Franka Potente, David Morse, and Ken Watanabe, and it was directed by Mikael Håfström, who directed what I thought was a pretty phenomenal horror movie, 1408. So, what's wrong with the movie? It looks, from the trailer, like there's a lot of credible performances, but it's not exactly compelling, either.

Anyway, before you watch the trailer, I want to offer you a sampling of recent tweets by John Cusack, and let's see how that colors your perception of his performance in the trailer.


  • beber rides the jaxkalope as he sings the song of the hyenia-- and they circling lyss at night --whispering horrible shit.

  • I CAN ONLY AWNSER WHAT WOULD SHOCKOZULU DO... TO DIRECT QUESTIONS

  • bp -- obama- wallstreet- obama--untill he learns he will be hated by corporate forces no matter what he does- he will cont- to get rolled ... and we all continue to suffer...same for the juggernught war machine---it's only purpose is to use him till hes done then use the next

  • would love if all flag sucking halfwits who saw lloyd dobbler as a-political would unfollow-- they didnt pay attention to film anyway
