The Men Who Stare At Goats Trailer.

My only real worry about this movie:

…(based on the non-fiction book of the same name) is that it may end up being another Burn After Reading: a movie whose trailer promises something that’s a good deal funnier than the actual movie delivers.  I’m hopeful – the title is inspired, and should have hopefully forced the script writer, director, and actors to live up to its promise – but you never know.

As to the merits of the programs described in either movie or book: I figure that if we had troops who could kill goats with their minds we’d have heard about it by now.  Forget keeping it quiet: the US military would mass-deploy that on a black-box basis just as soon as the results were replicable.

  • The trailer is pretty funny. I love that ending with Bridges saying “the prostitution thing is definitely wrong.” But, with Clooney in it, I have my doubts. By the way, this whole back story is a serious thing of the New Age movement. There are wack jobs all across the country that believe in the basic premise of a perfect man with amazing mental powers that can be realized by new age religious study. They really are trying to create an army like the premise of this film. New agers are sad, sick minded people.
