James Cameron's Desert Bus

A visionary director, directs his vision... of a direction. That direction is "left".

Sweet. Can't wait to see this one. I guess Sony, LG and all the other major TV-making companies will have to unite under a project to create a TV that will be able to support the upcoming movie in parameters like awesomeness and badassness.

So I noticed this last week with the trailers but this video confirms it.

HOLY GEEZ your videos look good in high quality! Actually, good is an understatement. That was a $20 well spent.

Anyways, I really like the feel of this video. I don't really know what else to say. It was a good wrap-up to Desert Bus.

Only seven hours? I feel slightly ripped off.

Either one hour has been cut, which is going to totally ruin the realism for me, they're speeding, which takes away from the source material and goes in a direction I can't see working (and it's illegal, and I don't think it's the kind of thing that should be encouraged by such a mainstream film) or the bus won't make it to Las Vegas, which, call me a cynic, just seems like a way of ripping us off by not having the proper conclusion till the next film, or in a really expensive special edition of the film, so we have to pay even more just to get an ending.

I shall not be wasting my money on this garbage.

Spoiler Alert!

Logicsword - Not making it to Vegas doesn't mean the film is cut short, I'm only speculating here, but maybe the film ends in a stunningly realistic crash scene. Imagine the audience reaction to that heart-breaking tow truck light.

I'd just like to take a moment here to compliment Matt on his beard.

The roles have been switched! Matt's starting to look more like Tim!

Yo dawg, we put a green screen on your green screen, so you can composite while you composite.

Those credits were epic.

Good stuff good stuff. I was also hoping for another song, but this was pretty funny. (indecently, I have had Tucson or Bust stuck in my head for the last 3 days). I have never seen a movie in 3D, but for Desert Bus I totally would. 2018 won't come fast enough!

The sad part is that I watched hours and hours of desert bus, yet managed to miss every single scene shown during the credits. How does this happen!

Aww. . . no music? ;_;

Well, it was still nifty, anyway. I particularly liked the 'adjusting a single grain of sand' bit. And I feel like way more of a badass for recognising so many of the credit clips this year.

Combined with no commercials and half of it going to desert bus, made it worth it to finally sign up.

Awesome video, you don't get to see parody "behind the scenes interviews" nearly enough.

I missed the first two days due to travelling (not to mention sleep, class, etc for the other days), and can't w8 to see some of the recordings get put up on youtube.

I was really annoyed about that idea at first, normally I don't like such tragic films, and in all honesty it just felt like a lazy way out.

Now though... It just gives me goosebumps.It will be without a doubt the most moving finale to any work of fiction and a fantastic analogy for man's constant struggle to achieve greatness, but never succeeding because of the tiny grains of sand, or regrets and hesitations, that he allows to get in the way.

If it doesn't win every Oscar then there is something wrong with this world.

OH MAN. You guys, seriously. Seriously, guys. SO GOOD. XD
I would totally watch this film.

Oddly enough, even after so long watching DB this year I, like Tapir12, somehow managed to miss, like, half the clips from the credits. :?

This. Damnable sleep...

Unsurprisingly, the longer this video progressed, the more I became convinced that this is a film I want to see. Now I'm disappointed that it doesn't actually exist. :(

I loved this video. Having watched as much desert bus as I possibly could without keeling over, the whole thing made me laugh, and I loved the touches like Matt wearing the Team Ashton shirt and all the credits!

In the "end credits" bit, with the montage of moments, what was the song being sung where Tally had a flower around her head?

Hm...well I was certainly kidding when I said it (the Tim part). Plus, I mean no illwill by it.

Awesome! I had only heard vague rumors about James Cameron's next epic visual masterpiece, but I could never image how astonishing it would be. Desert Bus the Movie makes Avatar look like it was made on an Etch-A-Sketch. Only two words can truly describe it: Cinematic, and Compelling.

Seriously, though. Great video, guys!

I want to see George Lucas's Desert Bus.

"You killed my driver!"
"No, Bus, I am your driver."

Avoid the prequels, though! "I hate sand; it's gritty and coarse. Not like you, though. You're smooth and metallic and diesel-powered."
