The 11 Best Death Cab For Cutie Songs
Being successful at anything means you need to know what you're doing. Take for instance this weekend at the box office. Two titans fought it out between the Wachowski brothers with Speed Racer and Robert Downey Jr. with Iron Man. Iron Man, in its second weekend, pounded Speed Racer by 30 million. Iron Man has grossed 177 million in 10 days...Speed Racer will be lucky to gross 77 million in its entire run. How is it that the directors who brought you the Matrix, flopped so hard in their first new enterprise in over ten years? One thing: Jon Favreau. Behind the helm of Iron Man, is the writer-director Jon Favreau. The Wachowskis have one hit...The Matrix...a great film. But Favreau also had an impressive film on his resume...Swingers. Made for 1/1000 of the price of the Matrix, Swingers is equally important to 90s cinema. Favreau wrote the script. He also did the highly successful Elf...and the quiet indie classic, Made. What else do the Wachowskis have on their resume from the past 10 years? Just bad Matrix sequels.
Iron Man is movie based out character...we grow with Tony Stark...we feel his plight. We want him to win. Speed Racer is based out of visual style...after 15 seconds, we get it and are ready to move on with our lives.
Favreau has made a career of making good films...they may not break Box office records (until now), but they are always respectable. The Wachowskis got lucky once...and lightning doesn't strike twice.
