The movie website for the upcoming movie The Men Who Stare At Goats has all the right pieces, but it leaves me feeling only luke-warm…and I’m not sure why! Sure, it does have a few games to play – which are short, but tolerably fun – all based upon psychic-testing abilities – clicking both the games link and the “Join The Army, Take the Test” will get you there. There is also the Fact or Fiction section which is kind of interesting and is basically an interview with the author Jon Ronson that wrote the novel the movie is based on. But that’s basically all the site has. The rest is the usual – movie plot, stills, trailer, and downloads. Eh. The site’s OK.
Movie Synopses: The Men Who Stare At Goats stars some big actors including Jeff Bridges, George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, and Ewin McGregor, and is a “comedic look at real life events” in a top-secret wing of the US Military. Supposedly there exists an experimental US military unit called “The New Earth Army” which has a legion of “Warrior Monks” whose psychic powers can read the enemy’s thoughts.
