It’s happened. James Franco, lover of his own farts, has outdone even himself. The trailer for his new movie, The Color of Time, is here and it’s… it’s just so boring. So ridiculously head-smashingly boring. It’s based on the work of the poet C.K. Williams, and Franco stars in and produced it. It was directed as a collaboration between twelve NYU film students. Because why use just one director when you can have twelve, am I right? When the movie premiered at the Rome Film Festival, it was called Tar. I assume the name was changed in an attempt to trick people into not remembering how sh*tty Tar was. (It has 17% on Rotten Tomatoes.)
I know saying the trailer is boring is pretty much guaranteeing no one will watch it, but I think you might be underestimating just how bad it is. It’s so bad. In a movie with Mila Kunis and Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff gets top billing, you guys. That’s how bad it is. Don’t make me suffer through this alone. Let’s discuss.
