HBO Films: Game Change Trailer

The trailer for the HBO Films movie about Sarah Palin and the John McCain presidential campaign.

We don’t have HBO, so I wasn’t able to watch. Did anyone see it?

    Watched this last night out of curiosity because I really admire Moore and Harris and have a soft spot for Harrelson. (Also it turns out it’s written by the guy who played Jonathan in Buffy, though that wasn’t a deciding factor, more a WTF?)

    It’s rather good. Not as gripping as the high-end HBO stuff (which, to be fair, is the only HBO stuff we see in the UK) and the pacing is a little clunky at times, but the actors really pull off the characters without turning in to parody. Unlike Oliver Stone’s W which I only managed 15 minutes of before getting very bored indeed.

    And it’s always great to see Ed Harris in action, even if he is looking a little old…
