Tesla is so boring new  

I realize that this Nicoli Tesla was a genius inventor and everything but a movie about a man, a fuse box, and the electric plug is not going to interest anyone but physics majors.

Folks there is a reason none of us have ever heard of Nicoli Tesla: he is a boring man who did boring things. I don't want to see his schematics. I don't want to see a close up of a light bulb.

Now if this were a movie about Bowie playing a demented magician, that would be a great role.

Re: Tesla is so boring [re: to_dizzy]  

This movie is not a biopic, it's based on a novel that happens to use Tesla as a character. The IMDB describes the plot as follows:

Based on Christopher Priest's 1996 novel, Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman play rival magicians in turn-of-the-century London who battle each other for trade secrets. The rivalry is so intense that it turns them into murderers.

Everything I've read indicates that Tesla's appearance in the novel is akin to that of a demented magician, full of effects and electricity.

Why are we complaining so quickly? This movie hasn't even started filming yet, I'm going to at least wait for a shitty teaser trailer before I unleash the petulance.

Thanks, I did not know that. This sounds like a much better movie now.

Because it's to_dizzy, who doesn't even check the correct spelling of the names of characters he complains about, let alone the planned plot of a movie.

No, but I was close you have to admit. And I had the right movie, you have to admit that too.
