Anyone who knows me is aware that I love just about anything aviation-related. If there’s a film, book, documentary, magazine, or web site that promotes or involves flying, I’m all for it. It takes a lot for me to turn my nose up at anything with an airplane in it.

Nevertheless, the trailers for the new Sony film Stealth look truly abysmal. It’s a shame, because I want to be excited about this movie. But I end up secretly hoping it bombs at the box office. Something tells me my dream will come true.

The best thing Stealth has going for it appears to be the special effects, and those seem about on par with something Fisher-Price might have packaged for sale to the public. The aircraft movement, cinematography, dialogue, and attitudes of the pilots are annoying as hell to watch.

I’ve seen the full length trailer and always come away thinking that I’d be more likely to part with $10 if they’d never created the trailer in the first place. It’s almost as if they were trying to make the worst movie possible.

Stealth. Yeah, right.

    I’d have to agree.

    I thought the trailer was hideous, then I saw the first 4 minutes during a tivo-based promo. Wow, even worse. The only think I could think was “definition of hollywood cheesyness”.

    I too hate to think anything involving aviation is crummy, but this certainly looks like it is.
