Title: (NEW Poll Added!!) New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on August 05, 2009, 06:51:24 PM
This thread is for listing upcoming movies & trailers for movies that look like they will be worth watching.
What this is mostly about is movies we might not have heard about unless someone posted it here.
Most of these movies might not have a big studio behind them and don't have solid release dates, but they've been announced and have a trailer that looks pretty damn good.

I'll start it off with a few even though most of these already have their own threads

Zombieland (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=57753)
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Starring:  Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin
Release: October 9, 2009
Quote
n the film, Columbus (Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Harrelson) doesn't have fears. If he did, he'd kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, they're about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.

Machete!! (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=20149.msg532875#msg532875)
Studio:
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Starring: Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and Jeff Fahey
Release:
Quote
Machete (Trejo) is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator (De Niro). The film was teased as a faux trailer that was directed by Robert Rodriguez in Dimension Films' Grindhouse, which featured a full-length film from both Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

"Kick-Ass" (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=29019.0)
Studio:
Director: Matthew Vaughan
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Nicolas Cage and Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Release:
Quote
The story centers on a high school dweeb named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a superhero even though he has no athletic ability or coordination. Things change when he eventually runs into real bad guys with real weapons.

Black Dynamite (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=26761.0)
Studio: Sony Pictures
Director: Scott Sanders
Starring: Michael Jai White, Arsenio Hall, Tommy Davidson, Sally Richardson-Whitfield, John Salley, Bokeem Woodbine, Brian McKnight and more... (http://www.blackdynamitemovie.com/about/cast)
Release: October 16, 2009
Quote
When “The Man” murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages, and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, Black Dynamite is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IE3btjbYZQ)
Studio:
Director: Terry Gilliam
Starring: Heath Ledger, Christopher Plummer, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield, Verne Troyer, Tom Waits, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law
Release: US? UK Oct. 19, 2009
Quote
THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. It tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his extraordinary ‘Imaginarium', a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Doctor Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. An inveterate gambler, thousands of years ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr. Nick, in which he won immortality. Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr. Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his daughter reached her 16th birthday, she would become the property of Mr Nick

i was sceptical about a movie called Zombieland, that was until i found out Woody Harrelson would be in it, at that point it became awesome incarnate. If anyone recalls I always said i thought the resident evil movies series should be called "Alice in Zombieland" because of all the wonderland references.

Looking forward to Avatar, because you know, it's a James Cameron movie. Also it supposed to be the best thing ever, effects wise and the first real showcase of what modern 3D cinema can do.

So I guess I'm pretty excited.

More films I'm psyched for are:

UP (It still hasn't been released here, grrrr!),
Where The Wild Things Are (Still iffy on this one, but I hope it turns out well),
The Princess And The Frog (Classic Disney Animation, **** yeah!),
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (Director = Terry Gilliam, need I say more?).

I found some info on how they finished The Imaginarium
Quote
Heath Ledger as Tony: A mysterious outsider who joins the group. When Ledger died in the midst of production, the role was recast to have Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portray "physically transformed versions" of the character.

Depp, Farrell, and Law opted to redirect their wages for the role to Ledger's young daughter, Matilda, who had been left out of an old version of Ledger's will. Gilliam altered the part of the credits saying "A Terry Gilliam film" to "A film from Heath Ledger and friends."

I'm kind of upset.
I don't like going to the movies.
Black Dynamite makes its Canadian theatrical premier on the 14th, and on the 16th in the same cinema they have Dead Snow as a Toronto theatrical premier. Well I can't watch Dead Snow because I have a closing shift on that day, but Black Dynamite??? *shrug*
I will just have to wait for their Bluray releases.

Are they premier only releases?
if not then I don't see the problem... Although Black Dynamite is definitely a "Opening Night" movie. Hilarious audience commentary at the screen is what I'm most looking forward to.

Title: Clash of the Titans
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on September 05, 2009, 09:30:45 PM
Clash of the Titans (http://www.slashfilm.com/tag/clash-of-the-titans/)
Studio: Warner Bros Pictures
Director: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Sam Worthington, Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton, Alexa Davalos, Jason Flemyng
Release: March 26, 2010
Quote
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

This sweeping fantasy epic, a remake of the 1981 hit, was penned by screenwriting legend Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark) and has visual effect from people involved in The Dark Knight, Terminator Salvation, Incredible Hulk, Gladiator & Saving Private Ryan.

This one I'm excited for because I loved the original from way back in the day. Greek Mythology was one of my favorite things growing up & this movie deserves a quality remake.

new clash of the titans? Blasphemy! Im a huge Harryhausen fan, 2 summers ago I went on a rampage and watched most of the movies he worked on. I still need to see like 3 of them though. I like it when remakes don't have the same name as the original. Red Dragon and Manhunter got that right. Theres a remake for Nightmare on Elm street coming out, it'll be allright with Rorschach as Freddy, but whatever. Its just going to be the same damn movie as the original. If I were to redo it, i would completely re-invent it. Like Freddy wouldn't be designed in even the same way. I write too many scripts that don't get anywhere...i have am idea that has a deadline though...ever hear of a mockbuster? I need to learn to write at least a page a day on scripts. I wrote 4 pages yesterday. I have a 57 page comedy script, an outline of a horror script with 4 pages of a scene thats in the middle of the script. I just need to finish something so that I can get paid.
Title: Ong Bak 2 & The Last Airbender (Avatar)
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on September 06, 2009, 09:09:56 PM
Ong Bak 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLEneaH_XpY)
Studio: Magnet (I think)
Director: Tony Jaa & Panna Rittikrai
Starring: Tony Jaa, Sorapong Chatree, Sarunyu Wongkrachang, Nirut Sirichanya, Santisuk Promsiri
Release: October 23, 2009
Quote
After warlords slay his parents and the rest of his family, young Thai nobleman Tiang (Tony Jaa) escapes his kidnappers and joins an eclectic band of outlaws, who instruct the revenge-minded youth in a variety of deadly fighting styles. Now a master of weapons and hand-to-hand combat, Tiang hunts down those who robbed him of his kin. Jaa also directs and Sorapong Chatree co-stars in this martial arts thriller set in 15th-century Thailand.

The first one was very enjoyable just for the fight scenes alone. This one looks to turn it up a notch.

p.s. This movie is not connected to the 1st one due to the time at which it takes place (600yrs ago).
Like the trailer says "REAL FIGHT IS BACK!"


The Last Airbender: The Legend of Aang (http://)
Studio: Paramount Pictures & Nickelodeon Movies
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Dev Patel, Jackson Rathbone, Shawn Toub, Aasif Mandvi & Cliff Curtis
Release: Summer 2010
Quote
In a world ravaged by the Fire nation's aggression toward the peaceful Air, Water and Earth nations, reluctant youth Aang (Noah Ringer) learns that he's an Avatar -- a rare being who can manipulate all four elements and restore peace to the planet. Now Aang must join with his pal Katara (Nicola Peltz) and other allies to fulfill his destiny. M. Night Shyamalan directs this live-action adaptation of the animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender."

This is literally M. Nights last chance to do a movie that doesn't make me feel stupid for sitting through the whole thing. He's not a bad director, but if he does one more stupid "what a twist" movie I will never watch anything that he is attached to again.

Some of my students auditioned for that Last Ari Bender movie and I understand why they picked who they picked. But man his martial arts stink! I'm sure he has gotten better, but when he tries to roll his glider through his arms and back like a spear, it is done so badly.

Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Stogi on September 07, 2009, 09:22:02 PM
Maybe they'll do something akin to the Matrix? Keano Reeves isn't a martial arts master afterall.

Anyway, I'm going into the Last Air Bender with no preconceptions. I'm not going to compare to the cartoon because nothing can top that masterpiece; it would be pointless.

Really, the only thing I want to see is the Avatar state. I get goose bumps when watching the cartoon and the avatar transforms into his avatar state. The music becomes epic, his voice God like, and in him is the power to do anything. It's really a sight to see, so I hope it's even better live-action.

Post by: BranDonk Kong on September 08, 2009, 01:03:53 AM
I've only seen the show a couple times, being as I'm 28 years old and only watch Nickelodeon or NickToons when my daughter is watching it, but it is beautifully animated and generally seems to be a pretty epic cartoon series.

I enjoy Avatar and like that Nick is trying their own epic sotry line that is obviously anime inspired. I just wish the coloring wasn't so dim(I guess thats the word i'm looking for). Just looks like everything is in a haze.

But as far as story telling goes, it is not on the level of One Piece and not just because OP has a billion episodes and had more time to flesh out.

I like season one alot, but it's not till season 2, where they find an earth bending teacher, does it really pick up. In fact, if I hadn't stumbled onto a particular episode of season 2 while channel surfing, I probably would have never become so interested in it.

The cartoon is not that offputting, he was just kinda old and eccentric looking. (http://media.photobucket.com/image/disney%20mad%20hatter/kikiLOVEchai/mad-hatter-2.jpg)
The book version, which I assume this pic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MadlHatterByTenniel.svg) is more of the same.

They are both very different from the Tim Burton version that takes a handsome actor like Johnny Depp and makes him unappealing to the eyes.

Director: Chris Columbus
Starring: Kevin McKidd, Pierce Brosnan, Rosario Dawson, Steve Coogan. Sean Bean, Ray Winston, Uma Thurman,Catherine Keener and Joe Pantoliano
Release: February 12, 2010
Quote
After he discovers that he's the son of the Greek god Poseidon (Kevin McKidd), 12-year-old Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) strikes out on an action-packed adventure to rescue his mortal mother and negotiate a peace treaty between his father, Zeus (Sean Bean) and Hades (Steve Coogan).

I hate the title but I like the subject matter. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this one, and if I find the 1st book in the series for cheap, I might pick that up and give a read too.

Just watched the trailer. Looked pretty good; having Rosario Dawson in it is a big plus.

[REC]2 (http://rec2lapelicula.com/)
Studio: Filmax
Director: Jaume Balagueró & Paco Plaza
Starring: Manuela Velasco, Ferran Terraza, Javier Botet, David Vert, Ana Isabel Velásquez   
Release: October 2, 2009 (Spain) - US(remake?) release date unknown
Videos: Teaser Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55NP2_ZD4dY&feature=related) - Clip #1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keKeynnoBsw&feature=player_embedded) - Clip #2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPRhBLSkiUQ&feature=related) - Clip #3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgFMAIN6ePY&feature=related)

Quote
The action continues from [Rec], with the medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment to control the situation.

By using the flipped perspective of the camera-equipped troops, Balagueró and Plaza have designed a shocker meticulously calculated to set your nerves on edge. [REC] 2 is Aliens to Alien, a sequel that ramps up the action but does not defile the spirit of its predecessor. Balagueró and Plaza have proved themselves exciting additions to the gory canon of Euro-horror masters, and they can't wait to drag the Midnight Madness audience into the darkness, screaming at the top of their lungs.

I know most people might wait for the eventual remake, since the original remake [Quarantine] was pretty much a shot for shot remake, but I will watch this as soon as it hit DVD on Netflix.

Looks like Walking Dead is getting a TV show, and its going to be on AMC, AMC is probably my second choice as far as people to make it. Showtime would be prefered, but Breaking Bad is already better than Weeds.

Director: Oren Peli
Starring: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, Michael Bayouth   
Release: Limited Release Sept. 25, 2009 - Demand It Here (http://www.paranormalmovie.com/theaters.html)
Quote
After a young, middle class couple moves into what seems like a typical suburban 'starter' tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be somehow demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially when they sleep. Or try to.

I've seen this movie about a 1.5yrs ago (it was made in 2007) @ a film festival in SF and it was kinda creepy. I can't say it scared me since no movie has since the original Nightmare on Elm Street when i was like 7 or 8, but the girl I was watching it with was clutching tight the entire time, and she wasn't the kind to scare really easily (for a girl ;)).

*If you like supernatural horror movies in a "believable" environment and don't want to spoil anything, don't watch the trailer. Just take my word for it and go watch it*

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on October 02, 2009, 01:21:43 AM
Zombieland (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=57753)
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Starring:  Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin
Release: October 9, 2009
Quote
n the film, Columbus (Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Harrelson) doesn't have fears. If he did, he'd kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, they're about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.

Reviews:
Rotten Tomatoes - 89% (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/zombieland/)
Quote
Reviews Counted:56 | Fresh:50 | Rotten:6 | Average Rating:7.5/10

Consensus: Wickedly funny and featuring plenty of gore, Zombieland is proof that the zombie subgenre is far from dead.

Dread Central - 5/5 (http://www.dreadcentral.com/reviews/zombieland-2009)
Quote
Some films would be content to strike the perfect mix of comedy and above average zombie effects, but Zombieland adds another dimension with just the right amount of back story for each character. These scenes remind us of the tragedy of their situation, eliciting everything from a chuckle to an awww to a downright yank on your heart strings. The dramatic elements are never overly milked and strike just the right chords, complementing the scenes they piggyback like a snug-fitting puzzle piece.

It’s a joy to watch a film that seems to get everything right, has an audience howling with laughter to the point where you have to struggle to hear the lines that follow a gag, and STILL provides some extra gory eye candy for the horror fan who said, “You had me at Zombie.” The running undead look fantastic and are dispatched in a never-ending, ever-evolving innovative shopping list of carnage. You’ll applaud every crunch. Zombieland is a killer comedy with a vicious sense of humor. It’s the kind of movie where, halfway through, you’ll wish you already owned the DVD. Grab six horror-starved friends and meet me at the movies for opening night. It’s time we made a deserving film #1!

Chud.com - 8.5/10 (http://chud.com/articles/articles/20909/1/REVIEW-ZOMBIELAND/Page1.html)
Quote
If you were to take Zombieland at name value - ie as a zombie movie - it's one of the weirdest I've ever seen. For one thing, it's completely hopeful. Zombie films are, by their nature, almost always bleak. There may be a glimmer of hope at the end, but usually it feels like a band-aid on a gaping chest wound. Every good zombie movie has a sociopolitical layer, and Zombieland is no different, but this sociopolitical layer is about Obama, and about the end of the recession. This is a movie about making it through the bad times and seeing the other side. That's kind of cool, but I have to admit that it left me a touch disoriented at the finale, because I'm just not used to walking out of zombie films feeling... good.

The chemistry between Eisenberg and Harrelson is so good it's almost obscene. This is a tough relationship to pull off - Tallahassee immediately senses that Columbus is a bitch - but they navigate the waters well, without ever becoming too touchy feelie or even chummy. It's a real relationship that maybe wouldn't happen in the normal world, but in the chaos of Zombieland these two opposites together make perfect sense. Breslin and Stone are good, and Stone particularly has a great sort-of bad girl thing down, but they don't come close to matching the wattage of their male co-stars.

Just want to add that the original release for this movie was listed as Oct. 9th, but it's out in theaters everywhere this weekend. Not to spoil anything, but I hear that this movie is one helluva ride and just when you think it couldn't get any better there is a surprise cameo appearance that just makes things even better.

I hate going to the theater, but I think that's what I'm gonna do tonite.

Clash of the Titans (http://www.slashfilm.com/tag/clash-of-the-titans/)
Studio: Warner Bros Pictures
Director: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Sam Worthington, Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton, Alexa Davalos, Jason Flemyng
Release: March 26, 2010
Quote
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

This sweeping fantasy epic, a remake of the 1981 hit, was penned by screenwriting legend Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark) and has visual effect from people involved in The Dark Knight, Terminator Salvation, Incredible Hulk, Gladiator & Saving Private Ryan.

This one I'm excited for because I loved the original from way back in the day. Greek Mythology was one of my favorite things growing up & this movie deserves a quality remake.

Quote from: Netflix
Splice(2009) NR

Ignoring instructions from the pharmaceutical company that funds their research, groundbreaking genetic scientists Elsa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrien Brody) forge ahead with an unorthodox experiment to create a human-animal hybrid, a new life form they dub "Dren" (Delphine Chanéac). But their wonderment at their fantastical creation swiftly morphs into regret when Dren makes deadly plans of her own.

It was made this year, and there is no mention of it being a remake or there being a sequel on Netflix.
the only other movie with a similar name on Netflix is a slasher flick.

edit:
I even checked IMDB and the only other movie you could be talking about is Slices and that is a compilation short story movie or something. So I'm not sure what you are talking about.

p.s. I've had this movie on my Netflix list for a while now, completely forgot about it though.

Sometimes the less you know about a movie the better it turns out being. I had no idea what The Matrix or 28 days later were going to be about when i stepped into the theater.

Dammit. Black Dynamite came out today and it's not playing anywhere near my house.

On a slightly related note, Paranormal Activity just went nationwide and is now playing in my area.

But I have been meaning to go see Zombieland.... so maybe that's what I'll do tonite instead.

LAW ABIDING CITIZEN

Quote
Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice. Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die. Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Shelton’s high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Shelton’s crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead.

Clash of the Titans (http://www.slashfilm.com/tag/clash-of-the-titans/)
Studio: Warner Bros Pictures
Director: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Sam Worthington, Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton, Alexa Davalos, Jason Flemyng
Release: March 26, 2010
Quote
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

This sweeping fantasy epic, a remake of the 1981 hit, was penned by screenwriting legend Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark) and has visual effect from people involved in The Dark Knight, Terminator Salvation, Incredible Hulk, Gladiator & Saving Private Ryan.

This one I'm excited for because I loved the original from way back in the day. Greek Mythology was one of my favorite things growing up & this movie deserves a quality remake.

Not sure if anythings been posted about spiderman 4 in this thread yet but.. I learned today that its one less movie to keep an eye out for. Its been cancelled, and sony pictures is looking to reboot the series and focus on Peters highschool days. Lame?
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on January 12, 2010, 01:45:00 PM
I read all about the Spiderm4n situation, and if you heard what Sony was trying to force into the movie, you would be happy that Raimi quit. Sony was trying to even worse than they did with Spid3rman when they forced Raimi to shoe horn Venom into the movie. In this version, they weren't gonna let Raimi do as he wanted (even though there was an article about letting him have the creative freedom he wanted) as far as villains and something about a baby. Peter Having a baby? I'm not sure, but the movie was definitely headed in the wrong direction.
Raimi saves his reputation by walking away, and McGuire gets a lucky break(said doing spiderman was killing his back) in being fired from the move.

Why this might be a good thing though is that supposedly Marvel has a little more involvement this time around with the new movie. Some are thinking that Sony might try to get Spiderman an Avengers appearance even though the 2 movies should be releasing around the same time frame. Others are thinking that Sony is trying to capture that whole Twilight and Disney Teen crowd since the script is rumored to be pretty "gritty".

I say if they can draw from some of the best sources of Spiderman in HS, make sure that who ever plays if is witty and very sarcastic yet fits the Spiderman physique and Peter Parker look, and the guy who played J. Jonah Jameson on board, then it could be a good thing to re-boot it.
McGuire wasn't the perfect Spiderman and Mary Jane was hard to look at period. Not to mention SM3 was pretty bad, but Sony was pretty smart to have planned for this and not let the property revert back to Marvel.

Sony only has Spiderman for 3 more movies, but Disney/Marvel need to figure out how to get Xmen back from Fox asap.

They should at least reboot it like they did with the Incredible Hulk, so we don't have to go through and see how he becomes Spider-Man again. The first movie was almost spot-on with the comic books (at least through the early 90s), they should basically be starting with "Spider-Man 2" - which is also essentially what New Line did with Friday the 13th.

Raimi has made up for it with Drag Me to Hell,

but its remaking the series if he goes to high school, if they want to reboot the series with different actors and a different director than they had better not go backwards in the time line. Its a waste of money and too regressive. There is a good spiderman origin movie its called Spiderman and its directed by Sam Raimi. They shouldn't backtrack. Rebooting Incredible Hulk was a great idea, but the reboot could easily take place after the first one. Rebooting Batman was way different because the series was gone for a long while and after the previous incarnations it really really needed it.

 The best way to do it now is to start where the story left off. Spiderman and Mary jane are together now, and maybe close to being married, but obviously his crime fighting gets in the way. There could be a love triangle with Black Cat, but that would ultimately be a side story. The next opponent that would fit would be either Morbius, Vulture, Lizard, or maybe Kraven. If Raimi was still directing, Kraven would be awesome if played by Bruce Campbell...i think even tubby he could still pull it off.

Moving onto the radar: The MAN OF STEEL (http://www.latinoreview.com/news/exclusive-david-goyer-hired-to-write-superman-the-man-of-steel-9286)

Quote
1.Thomas Tull, the head of Legendary, got tired of all the discussion and decided chingate, let's do it.  So he went to Goyer and Goyer had an idea that actually takes the movies back to the John Byrne incarnation.  Modern.  Believable.  FUN!  So Tull got Goyer hired.
2.The film will not be called Superman and will be called THE MAN OF STEEL.
3.Brandon Routh will not star in the film.
4.Nic Cage will NOT star in the fllm.
5.Bryan Singer is not expected to direct.
Conoces como Mark Millar walks around acting like he was going to write it?  El Taco discovered that this was always BULLSHIT.  Paul Levitz hated the guy and he was never even discussed to write it.  He made all that "almost" stuff up.

I can tell you that Goyer's story involves Luthor and Brainiac.  It is NOT an origin and assumes audiences already know about Lois, Clark, Jimmy and Perry.  I know the Daily Planet is struggling due to the internet.  And I know it sets up a huge Kryptonian mythology.

I don't really like Superman, but I like Smallville. Goyer not only co-wrote Smallville but also helped write Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, so I have some hope for this Superman movie. Im just so glad that it doesn't continue off the last one and isn't another origin story. Smallville has been a 9+year origin story and if people don't know where Superman started..... then this movie isn't for them.

edit:

XCLUSIVE UPDATE: IGN has heard from reliable sources that Tull is downplaying this report. Goyer is in fact on the project, but not only that -- his The Dark Knight co-writer Jonah Nolan will also be scripting Superman: The Man of Steel along with him. Nolan's brother Christopher is expected to only executive-produce, and not direct, the film. That said, he will be "hands-on" as a producer. Since the Superman film is under the gun because of the ongoing legal entanglements involving the property, Warner Bros. wants the pair to get started on their script on the double.

Our sources add that Warners is confident in the early work that Goyer and Jonah Nolan have done so far on Batman 3, and that as a result Superman has now taken on a higher priority status at the studio than it had since Superman Returns was released.

Why does Luthor have to be in it again?  He has been in every movie for goodness sake.  Enough of him already.  How about someone that Supes can actually punch without fear of splattering them all over the country.  When has anyone seen live a decent live action superman fight? Never.  Only in cartoons.  Bring on Darksied, or Doomsday or someone.  Brainiac is something, but I hope it doesn't end up like a Brainiac cameo.

Man, I liked Brandon Routh, he was a good Superman. I'll bet they'll **** up the casting for this one.

Routh was a pretty good superman. If I were to do a superman movie I would have it take place in the 40s, i would go back to basics. In the 40s before he got all his origins and before he even had much of an alter ego he was sort of a ruff and tumble badass. He would just come in and fling around the bad guys left and right, pick up big things that got in his way, and all sorts of stuff. Superman's casting is really hard because he is the idealized male, they could find all sorts of people, but would they be good actors. One of my ideas for a superman movie is a superman movie not about superman. Some crazy stuff is happening, a war is going on, and people are just caught in the middle of the action, and superman comes out of nowhere. That'd be a great intro at least.

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on February 26, 2010, 07:06:06 PM
The main problem with Routh is that he was cast as a Reeves Superman replacement and never got to be his own Superman. It's time to make a NEW Superman for the 2000's and the last Superman movie was not a good way to do that.

as a remake it looks like it captures the originals scariness pretty well, as well as having the best kills from the series. If they are going to do Freddy, they shouldn't try to copy Robert Englund. I would have gone in a different direction, but it looks like it will be pretty good.I've got the whole series and i watched Freddies Dead a week ago. I started to write a script with a similar premise, but it would be waaay different.

So there was a test screening for the "The Last Airbender"....It wasn't the final version and there was about 30 minutes of film left out.

Concensus: If you're a fan, you won't hate it. If you're not, you won't like it.

Either way, I can't wait to see it for the CGI alone (which I heard was ridiculously awesome).

Quote
The film tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).

IGN Review (http://movies.ign.com/articles/107/1076231p2.html) - 5/5
Quote
Cracking conversation is pointless if delivered by a cast of no-hopers, however, and mercifully Kick-Ass features note-perfect performances throughout, both from the seasoned pros and the many fresh faces on display.
[...]
For that very reason, Kick-Ass is as good a superhero movie as has yet been made -- storytelling of the very highest order, crafted by experts who know, love and treat the subject matter with the respect it deserves.

The result is utterly compelling from start-to-finish; an adaptation that perfectly captures the anarchic nature of the comic while at the same time eliciting unexpected emotions from a film about a crime-fighting kid in a wet-suit.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll squeal in delight at the outrageous behaviour of a little girl in a purple cape. But most of all, you'll wish that all superhero movies were like this.

Quote
I know there must be flaws in Kick-Ass. Maybe when the final score is put over the film it won't have quite the propulsive quality that this temp track gave it. Maybe a second viewing will reveal some cracks in the veneer. All I know is that the moment the film ended I wanted to see it again. It took me a couple of minutes to really get into the movie, but once I was in I was completely sold. Kick-Ass ends with the possibility of more adventures, and I want to see them all. I want to return to this hyper-violent, awesome world and get lost in laughs and sympathetic pain again. Kick-Ass is a movie that will have you on your feet, cheering your fucking guts out.

The Avatar -- Master of all four elements -- kept peace between the the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Only the Avatar has the ability to Bend (manipulate) all four elements, but one day, he Vanished. Then the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations for one hundred years. Now, for the good of the world, it's up to 12-year-old Aang (Noah Ringer), the new Avatar, and the last of the Air Nomads (Airbenders), to return peace and balance by putting an end to the war and mastering all four elements.

Riddler seems the most likely choice, although one of the Nolans or Goyer were saying back in 2008 that they had 70 years worth of villians to pick from.

I think they have dismissed Catwoman and the Penguin before, and Chris Nolan said that it wouldn't be Mr. Freeze.

I personally hope we see Scarecrow again.

Cloverfield prequel/sequel Trailer before Iron Man 2?

http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/05/04/secret-jj-abrams-film-to-be-unveiled-with-trailer-before-iron-man-2/
Quote
Pretty much recreating the surprise of when Cloverfield burst from the shadows with a mysterious trailer before Transformers, it looks as though a new secret project
from JJ Abrams is going to be officially unveiled this Thursday, when Iron Man 2 takes its first bow at midnight screenings.

This is curious enough. There are, however, some other small, teasing details to discuss and they’ve gotten me even more interested.

Note that all of this comes from Drew McWeeny at Hit Fix who, if I read the situation right, was actually considering not posting the story and keeping the trailer secret (see: Twitter). Has he done the wrong thing? Has he undercut the magic a little?

I don’t think so. He certainly hasn’t got any info to share on what is actually in the trailer, or even a hint of what the film might be about. Drew has only given the hype and anticipation a kick-start. Then again, I would say that - look what I do for a living.

Okay, maybe there are some tiny hints of what the film might be about. There’s a title for one thing: Super 8. This might be, I’m thinking, just a code title, though I assumed the same about Cloverfield. And there’s some suggestion of rumours (which rumours? where?) that the film is somehow a Cloverfield sequel.

One theory would be that the film is a Cloverfield prequel - Super 8 home movies being a precursor to the video we associate with the first film. I think that theory is likely wrong, but you never know.

I also wonder if Super 8 is the same thing as 500 Rads, a previously reported secret Abrams project…? Very possibly, I think. How many mystery boxes can one man be prepping?

Super 8 as is super 8 video cams,
Super 8 as in the motel chain or
Super 8 as in some sort of super hero movie starring 8 people?

Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall (2012) (http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/05/05/kick-ass-2-balls-to-the-wall-will-begin-production-in-2011/#ixzz0n4Cfxf2G)
Quote
Since Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass burst onto screens a few weeks ago,   speculation has swirled as to whether or not the film performed well   enough at the box office to warrant a sequel. A recent press release   (via Forces of Geek) for the forthcoming CLiNT magazine, a joint venture   between Millar and Titan Magazines, suggests that the sequel to the   film, Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, will begin production in 2011 for a   2012 theatrical release.
 
  CLiNT is a new monthly anthology magazine that Millar is spearheading.   “I’ve worked on everything from Spider-Man comics to the Iron Man movie   for Marvel in New York,” Millar said in the release, “but what really   excites me is the gap I see in the UK market at the moment. There are   absolutely no comic-books aimed at 16-30 year old guys and I think CLiNT   has potential to make an enormous impact, bringing a new type of   magazine to a new generation.” The magazine will feature interviews and   write-ups encompassing all forms of entertainment, along with four   serialized comic strips.
 
  The press release announcing the magazine’s launch also features this   tidbit:
 
      Millar is also launching his sequel to the hit Kick-Ass movie in   the first issue of the comic. “Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall” has been   scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release

Cloverfield prequel/sequel Trailer before Iron Man 2?

Pretty much recreating the surprise of when Cloverfield burst from the shadows with a mysterious trailer before Transformers, it looks as though a new secret project
from JJ Abrams is going to be officially unveiled this Thursday, when Iron Man 2 takes its first bow at midnight screenings.

This is curious enough. There are, however, some other small, teasing details to discuss and they’ve gotten me even more interested.

Note that all of this comes from Drew McWeeny at Hit Fix who, if I read the situation right, was actually considering not posting the story and keeping the trailer secret (see: Twitter). Has he done the wrong thing? Has he undercut the magic a little?

I don’t think so. He certainly hasn’t got any info to share on what is actually in the trailer, or even a hint of what the film might be about. Drew has only given the hype and anticipation a kick-start. Then again, I would say that - look what I do for a living.

Okay, maybe there are some tiny hints of what the film might be about. There’s a title for one thing: Super 8. This might be, I’m thinking, just a code title, though I assumed the same about Cloverfield. And there’s some suggestion of rumours (which rumours? where?) that the film is somehow a Cloverfield sequel.

One theory would be that the film is a Cloverfield prequel - Super 8 home movies being a precursor to the video we associate with the first film. I think that theory is likely wrong, but you never know.

I also wonder if Super 8 is the same thing as 500 Rads, a previously reported secret Abrams project…? Very possibly, I think. How many mystery boxes can one man be prepping?

Super 8 as is super 8 video cams,
Super 8 as in the motel chain or
Super 8 as in some sort of super hero movie starring 8 people?


Super 8 is a Cloverfield Prequel (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/20083)

Our sources tell us J.J. Abrams is actually directing this time around,   although nothing is confirmed. Earlier today news broke about a top   secret trailer for a new J.J. Abrams project entitled Super 8, which   would premiere in front of Iron Man 2 this coming weekend. No other   details were available at the time. An update at Vulture CONFIRMS that   Super 8 is in fact a quasi-prequel to the smash-hit viral monster movie   Cloverfield!! "Our sources...say that Super 8 is absolutely connected to   2008's Cloverfield  (possibly a prequel, but not a sequel)." They   continue with the plot details, which sound awesome. "Insiders   familiar with the trailer tell us that it shows a bunch of kids who are   shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties.   When they develop the film, they notice that there's an alien creature   in the frame." OMFG. To put the icing on the cake, this sounds   exactly like the Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration announced back on   April 28th. Did I say OMFG?! Have your say below.

I liked Cloverfield so I'm interested in this one.

Out for revenge, he's joined by a reluctant old buddy (Cheech Marin) who's become a pacifist priest. Written and co-directed by Robert Rodriguez, this homage to exploitation films based on his fake trailer in Grindhouse co-stars Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba and Steven Seagal.

Machete has a release date - Sept 3rd 2010 - just before Labor Day weekend and the subject matter of the movie happens to coincide with some controversial political stuff happening right now. Specifically in Arizona with their immigration laws.
Robert Rodriguez and Machete have put together a special Cinco De Mayo Trailer to send a message to Arizona: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/44943 (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/44943)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
  THUNDERCATS, HO!
 
  WARNER BROS. ANIMATION ANSWERS THE CALL WITH A NEW
 
  TAKE ON THE CLASSIC ANIMATED SERIES “THUNDERCATS,”
 
  TO AIR ON CARTOON NETWORK
 
  (June 3, 2010 – Burbank, CA) – Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) has begun   production on “ThunderCats,” an all-new animated series for Cartoon   Network, based upon the iconic 1980s action classic. “ThunderCats” is   the newest series from WBA, joining “Batman: The Brave and the Bold,”   which was recently renewed for a third season, and the following   forthcoming programs: “The Looney Tunes Show,” “MAD,” “Scooby-Doo!   Mystery Incorporated” and “Young Justice.” The announcement was made   today by Sam Register, Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs,   Warner Bros. Animation.
 
  “In addition to being Warner Bros. Animation’s first anime series,   ‘ThunderCats’ marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy,” said   Register. “The realism and dynamic visual style we’ve achieved are sure   to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should   help the show appeal to a diverse audience.”
 
  The 21st century reimagining of the series marks a creative   collaboration between WBA and Studio4°C, one of the most vibrant   animation studios in Japan, with credits including “The Animatrix,”   “Gotham Knights” and “Halo Legends.” WBA is working closely with   Studio4°C, utilizing the latter’s expertise to give the “ThunderCats”   characters a new cutting-edge look while remaining true to the   compelling storylines and mythology of the original series.
 
  “We at Studio4°C are excited to be in this creative partnership with   Warner Bros. Animation to bring ‘ThunderCats’ to life,” said Eiko   Tanaka, President and CEO, Studio4°C. “This collaboration combines the   strengths of our two companies – high production values and great   storytelling – toward reintroducing this classic fan-favorite to a new   audience.”
 
  Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C’s use of the Japanese animated   artistry of anime, “ThunderCats” characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro,   Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like   characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.
 
  The new “ThunderCats” will appeal to viewers who have loved the   characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A   sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious   battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince   Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his   destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new   telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest   for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable   lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.
 
  “ThunderCats” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Teen Titans,” “Ben   10,” “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”). Michael Jelenic (“Batman: The   Brave and the Bold,” “Wonder Woman”) and Ethan Spaulding (“Avatar: The   Last Airbender”) are the producers.

Snaaarffff!!! (http://site.wizardworld.com/blog/2010/06/02/breaking-news-thundercats-returns/)

Well, it can't be much worse than the original Thundercats. Maybe this one will have a consistent mythology rather than making things up as it goes along. I'm not thrilled about Studio4°C doing the animation, though. I'm struggling to think of a project they've done I've found artistically pleasing.

thank god, thats a pretty good one, i wonder if thats his battle suit or his USO suit?

i had figured that if they can make Spidermans suit look good they can make Caps suit look good. Key = Texture + Color Variation.
IT kinda reminds me of the difference between Ocarina link and Twilight Princess link. Maybe the new X-men will have colorful suits.

the new suit is a nice blend of suits

i had been designing my own suit, but as you can see...i gave up

I hate calling that movie Batman 3. I know it may be the 3rd movie in the current series, but I will refer to it as Batman 8 as it is the 8th Batman movie (not counting the straight to video movies).

It's part of the reboot series, TJ. It has no continuity with the prior ones so calling it so is misleading, confusing and flat out wrong. You're the stickler for these things, you should know better than to do something like that.

Post by: TJ Spyke on June 06, 2010, 07:11:41 PM
I know that, the whole idea of "re-booting" something is stupid. Most of the time it is little more than the writers saying they are too lazy to come up with a movie that fits the existing continuity. Besides, this is the numbering format the Bond movies use even though the Daniel Craig movies are supposed to be a re-boot with a new canon (i.e. the next Bond movie is codenamed Bond 23, not Bond 3).

Not that it matters, I will usually just say "the next Batman movie" anyways.

Post by: ThePerm on June 06, 2010, 08:12:00 PM
Outside of The Fly (the Vincent Price version) and the man with no name trilogy and Bond, there weren't really many sequels to any movies until the 80s. Sequels became common after Star Wars and The Godfather popularized them. That being said, you can only call something a sequel if it is the same series. If its in a different series it is in a different series, Now you want to call the next batman part 8, but it would really be part 10 or 11?. There was 2 serial versions of batman, and then there was an Adam West Batman movie made in the 60s, and then there were 4 Batman in a series from the 89-97, and then there were 2 more Batman movies from Nolan, oh wait but then there are the cartoon batman movies, maybe they should count too, and there are like 4 of those....also there was a captain america movie made in 1990, so should the new one be referred to as Captain America 2? The bond movies statistically are an anomaly when it comes to naming schemes, there are so many of them its unusual. Star Wars is even weirder, the 4th movie is actually part 1, where as the 1st movie is actually part 4, the 3rd movie is actually the 6th part, and the 3rd part is actually the 6th movie. The biggest problem with the old batman series is they are so bad (excluding part 1) that there really is no laziness with a reboot, thats really what they should and did.

There is no excuse for Sony's move on Spider-Man (4) :P though, as the original series is good and doesn't need a reboot. Things only need a reboot if they suck and that is the Reason why they didn't reboot Superman with Superman Returns. Although, Superman Returns wasn't Spider-Man 2, Iron Man, or The Dark Knight quality, so a reboot is necessary, but really only a half reboot, i don't need a damn origin story. I just need it to not suck.

From the recent interviews from Nolan, the next Batman movie might also be a Superman movie, Superman would totally make Batman irrelevant, and thats a pretty good angle for a movie. I think Batman is going to end up dying in the next movie :P See, I hear 2 things and the mind goes crazy. Though, even if that path is intriguing theres only a 25% chance of them actually doing it.

The first Tim Burton movie was pretty bad, the worst of those four Batman movies. It's still lazy to re-boot. The Superman situation is bad. They did a half re-boot to begin with (saying to ignore to 3rd and 4th movies). Superman Returns was a little boring, but it wasn't a bad movie (better than Batman Begins). As for the Spider-Man movies, 1 was OK, 2 sucked, I haven't seen 3 but I have heard a lot of bad things about it (especially that they screwed up Venom, which sucks because Venom is the best and most popular Spider-Man villain).

Directors need to stop even using the term re-boot, especially for comic book movies as they usually do not share continuity anyways. At least J.J. Abrams didn't try to screw up the Star Trek canon (he probably would have pissed off every Star Trek fan forever if he did), he made the 11th movie take place in a alternate timeline. I won't get into that whole situation, it really sucks that they seem to be focusing on that alternate timeline rather than the real canon for Star Trek XII.

so your saying Batman was worse than Batman and Robin?

Star Trek is special, because it doesn't need continuity. :P

No, but it's not better.

As for Star Trek, you can't throw out 40 years of continuity. Unlike Star Wars (which has mess of a canon where anything a Star Wars book says is canon unless it contradicts the movies) and unlike any comic book franchise, Paramount has been very careful in maintaining canon. I don't buy the reason for this alternate timeline, Abrams could have made a "mainstream" Trek movie while sticking to the established canon. The TOS era is boring. If Paramount wants the movies to be in this other timeline, fine; make a new TV series and set it in the normal timeline.

TJ Spyke, No disrespect :P: but your taste in movies sucks.

Superman Returns wasn't the worse movie, but it was bad and it was boring.
Batman Begins ran circles around it.

Spiderman 1 was good, Spiderman 2 was better and Spiderman 3 was a failed attempt at a still born abortion where the baby managed to live.... somehow. A reboot is not necessary, but the 3rd movie shouldn't have happened the way it did.

As far as reboots go, they happen when you don't want to continue with the drain circling story of the last movie that happens to share the same property you are trying to focus on. You really think Batman Begins should have continues the story from Batman Forever or Batman & Robin? Don't actually answer that because I'm sure i wouldn't like your answer :P:
This new Batman was a darker more realistic story meant to wipe the memory of the previous cash-grab from recent history.

A reboot gives a different director a clean slate to create his vision for the property that someone previously tackled. The only real issue with reboots, is how often they are happening in this creatively bankrupt Hollywood we have today.

I really wish that Marvel had a no Reboot clause in that contract with Fox & Sony so that they would be forced to continue the Fantastic 4, Spiderman and X-men story lines till they are not worth making anymore so that the rights would revert back to where they should be.

As for Star Trek, why not continue to explore this alternate timeline that has drawn in a new audience? Why go back to the old timeline that is far too expansive for anyone not a Trekkie to get into? You want more continuity of the old ST stuff, then go read the books, and play the games and visit the conventions and all the other stuff, this new movie timeline is for a new audience and a new generation of trekkie. A generation that can start from the beginning.

Post by: TJ Spyke on June 06, 2010, 10:20:44 PM
The first 45 minutes of Batman Begins is the worst I have ever seen in a comic book movie. The rest of the movie is good, but that doesn't make up for the first half sucking.

I am not sure how you could like Spider-Man 2. I will admit it's not the worst comic movie i've seen, but I won't say it was good.

Considering Batman Begins is supposed to be a origin story, they could have stuck to the existing canon (especially since Scarecrow hadn't been in the previous four movies, not that it matters since Scarecrow was only i about 10 minutes of the movie).

I am not totally opposed to re-boots, I am annoyed at how often it happens now (as you pointed out, even the relatively new X-Men and Fantastic Four movies are already being re-booted).

The new Trek movie drew fans in because of the huge budget and advertising, I have no doubt that a movie sticking to the main timeline would have done just as well with that same treatment. Star Trek: Enterprise took place before everything else in Trek, so doing a movie based on the ENT crew could have avoided all the stuff in the other shows and movies (other than the four seasons of ENT of coarse). Let the "mainstream" audience (the same idiots who probably like crap like Michael Bay movies) have this alternate timeline with the movies, give me a TV show set in the real timeline and I will be happy.

I admit that the 1st 45 minutes of BB was slow, even very boring to lots of people, but that doesn't really take away from the movie all that much.

Spiderman 2 was good, better than most sequels and I think in certain ways better that the first movie, like XMII. But exactly like Xmen they fell apart in the 3rd movie.

As far as Star Trek..... a movie based onteh failed TV show Enterprise would have been a terrible idea and only dawn in the small audience that couldn't even be relied upon to keep the show on the air.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: TJ Spyke on June 07, 2010, 12:22:36 AM
Enterprise aired on UPN (which didn't help, a lot of people didn't even get the channel in their area. When UPN moved Enterprise to Fridays, this basically killed the show as many local UPN affiliates aired sports on Friday nights). They didn't advertise the show very well. The first season was not that good either, the show became really great in season 3 (with the Xindi arc) but it was too late by that point.

Where did I say that the movie would have had to been about Enterprise? I merely said that the movie could have taken place around that time. Enterprise took place about 10 years before the founding of the Federation, and the show ended about 3 years before the Earth-Romulan War (which had been mentioned many times in Trek canon but never explained in detail) and about 100 years between ENT and TOS. So there was ample room to have a movie that would not have had much to worry about and would have let Abrams create his own characters rather than just rely on existing characters.

Post by: ThePerm on June 07, 2010, 12:59:20 AM
hehe,

my favorite Spider-Man movie is part 2, actually about 20 minutes before TJ's  5:11 post I had actually got done watching it for like the 5th time. The Dark Knight was on again on tv, but I was like you know what, i feel like watching Spider-Man 2.

As far as characters go, i think its the best character exploration of the series. I can relate to Peter Parker a lot, he's intelligent, but that doesn't mean everything goes well for him. His social skills are a wreck and this keeps him from opportunity. I can relate to how Peter feels when he hangs out with Harry, I get a similar feeling when I hang out with my friend Rick, because I banged his sister. Alfred Molina is great as Doctor Octopus. I have to be honest, I was always a Venom fan, and in any other incarnation I had never really cared much for Doc Ock as a character. However, this one brings him to life. He is a tragic, and lost person with nothing to live for, he just sort of wanders around in a fugue state attempting to maintain his dead dreams. Mary Jane is looking for a hero in her personal life, she knows she can't be with Spider-Man so she goes for the astronaut. She is suspicious of Peter's activity, and in the back of her mind she thinks Peter could be Spider-Man, but it is a hard thing to swallow, because Peter is a fucking doofus, he's Spider-man..seriously? Peter also deals with the duality of his personality, on one hand he's the man as Spider-Man, but his life sucks otherwise. Aunt May's house is being foreclosed and it's too bad she doesn't put a gypsy curse on the bank manager for not giving her a loan. There is a great  Evil Dead scene in the movie. It helps to be familiar with both Darkman and the Evil Dead series for this movies, because otherwise you might miss some magical bits. A lot of people hate Maguire as Peter/Spiderman, but I think he's perfect. He fits the awkward nerdy side of Peter, and at the same time pulls out some of the stronger bits. Another thing people hate is that the mask gets taken off a few times, I really don't mind this. Your aware who Spider-Man is, sure some people may see who he looks like, but know one who actually knows Peter besides Mary Jane sees his face, so good luck on the police sketches that their not telling anyone about anyways.  Doc Ock dies too, so he's no consequence. Although, in real life a train camera would catch his face, although in real life there are no above ground trains in New York. I could go on forever, there is so much depth.

Spiderman 3, is my least favorite of the movies, and many blame Raimi, but apparently Raimi just wanted to make it about Sandman, which were some of the best bits of the movie, apparently Sony forced venom in due to his popularity. Too much **** happened at once and it hurt the movie. The movie was nowhere near as bad as Batman and Robin or Batman Forever though. The series could have been salvaged, although in the long run they would have to reboot Venom because they screwed him up so badly. If I were to do a new one, Lizard would definitely be the next villain, I'd rather do several movies with one villain than one movie with several villains.

ah Venom, if only you were set up with a two movie arch you could have been better

It wouldn't really matter where they started in the existing time-line since there is still too much history connected to the current time-line for anyone not already invested to bother trying. It's got nerd, geek, trekkie and all other sorts of unattractive labels attached and it needed a new start for a new audience and even included nods to the old audience.

I think it was the best they could do to bring in the new without throwing out the old.
Something for everyone.


Spiderman 3 had Venom because Sony forced it on him, but it was originally supposed to be Sandman & The Vulture(Ben Kingsley I think).
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: ThePerm on June 07, 2010, 01:31:33 AM
I had heard Raimi wanted Vulture for the next movie, but it would make more sense to have Vulture and Sandman together than Sandman and Venom. Neither enemy are really enemies that I care much for, but as a double threat they would be that much more interesting. As I said I didn't care much for Doc Ock besides in Spider-Man 2. If the A plotline was replaced with Vultures it could have been really good. I could see how the movie could have meshed together, and it would be visually pleasing too. From what I heard John Malkovich was a pic too, and because he not only looks the part, but is a screen captivator it would balance out any inconsistencies. Actually, the structure sounds similar to Iron Man 2, whereas vulture is Hammer, and Sandman is Vanko. One of these days computer effects will be so good they will be able to seriously cut budgets, and we'll see more movies more often than every 2 years, and plotlines will be much more maliable, without a reduction in quality.

I am actually looking forward to Resident Evil: Afterlife. Yes, I know that Paul Anderson has screwed the series up in movie form, but the chance to see Mila Jovovich partially naked is just too appealing for me to miss out on ;) . This iteration of the franchis is in 3-D and it is going to borrow from Resident Evil 4 and 5. In fact, in the trailer there is a zombie with a tentacle protruding from its mouth like the ones from RE 5.

Based on the trailers and everything i've read about it (including people who've seen previews). It has nothing to do with the original really. If they wanted to call it something else, fine. Don't call it The Karate Kid and then have it have little in common with the original.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!

But it's not really a remake, but a new story for a new generation.
An unconnected sequel using the same name for familiarity.
I see nothing wrong with that.

this new Mortal Kombat is kinda cool, it seems fake though, but these actors are recognizable, where is Caterkiller? :P Despite all shortcomings it sounds interesting.

For a while they had been considering calling the new Karate Kid "Kung Fu Kid", but name brand recognition sells seats better. Think of how Goldeneye sold like 9 million copies and Perfect Dark barely sold 250,000. The Karate Kid story isn't even original, iv seen about 10 kung fu movies with the same plot, and Rocky by the same director also has a similar plot. Its a training montage movie!

That is my point. It has nothing to do with the past movies, it is just using the names get try and sucker people into seeing the movie thinking they will be getting a Karate Kid movie. If they called it something else (like "The Kung Fu Kid", which would be more truthful since it is kung fu being taught instead of karate), fewer people would go to see it.

Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: ThePerm on June 08, 2010, 09:46:21 PM
Our point is, from a marketing stand point its a great idea. Also, I don't think its even a company treating people like they are stupid either, because it has the same plot line. Boy meets old man, old man teaches kid how to fight, kid benefits. It IS Karate Kid. The title is really, really unimportant from my standpoint.

Case and point I watched this movie called Detour in 2003, it is essentially an unofficial remake of The Hills Have Eyes from 1977. In 2006 the remake for The Hills Have Eyes comes out. All 3 movies are essentially the same thing, but it doesn't matter what they are called, we know what we're getting into....its a modern version of Hansel and Gretel. There is no originality, why should we even pretend anymore? 

Also, Detour is an obscure movie, while the remake did pretty well. It is better to be an official movie in a brand than an unofficial knockoff. The Kung Fu Kid sounds like a knockoff.

The Last Airbender (cartoon) sequel in the works for debut 2011

AVATAR: The Legend of Korra

A spinoff from Nickelodeon's "Avatar: The Last Airbender" is in the works.
The channel said Wednesday the new animated TV series will premiere in 2011. It has the working title, "The Legend of Korra."

Nickelodeon says the series will build on the "mythology" of the original "The Last Airbender" series, which inspired this summer's live-action movie from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan (SHAH-muh-lahn).

The "Legend of Korra" is from the creator-producers of "Avatar: The Last Airbender."

Nickelodeon executive Brown Johnson says the new series will focus on a teenage girl avatar named Korra. Brown describes her as hotheaded, independent and "ready to take on the world."

"Avatar: The Last Airbender" has ranked among the highest-rate series on the Nickelodeon and Nicktoons channels.


Would you like to know more?

Quote
Nickelodeon said in a release that “The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra.”

Korra’s quest eventually leads her to Republic City–the epicenter of the world of “Avatar.” A metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology, the city is inhabited by people from all nations. Korra finds thatRepublic City suffers from rampant crime and is also dealing with an anti-bender revolt. Korra is tutored by Aang’s son, Tenzin, is the ways of airbending.

So to shorten that up a bit;
New Avatar from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra who is being tutored by Aang's son Tenzin 70 years after the last series in the time of steam-punk.

The first issues of the Scott Pilgrim predated No More Heroes by several years, so probably not.  I'm not really familiar with the graphic novel, but from what I've read, it draws influence from a number of video game and anime sources, really.  I mean, it

One of my favorite interview quotes about the movie: 

Quote
Edgar Wright: I haven’t told you this yet, but Shigeru Miyamoto (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Shigeru_Miyamoto)—the Mario creator from Nintendo—has seen part of the film. We had to get his permission to use this piece of music from The Legend of Zelda for that dream sequence. So when I was writing to Nintendo to get permission, I was saying, “This music is like nursery rhymes to a generation.”

I apologize if this has been posted before, but...Red Brand Machete Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liEmaDwNV18&feature=player_embedded). It looks so badass.

The trailer I posted made me think that this movie wasn't going to turn out to be as good as I think it should, but apparently it was a censored trailer. Now the trailer you posted, Brandogg, is full of win. I'm happy to know that it's going to be as awesome as I think it should be.

Now that you guys mention it, and after looking at Eva Mendez on imdb, it does look like her. Wierd. She's not even mentioned in the credits at the end of the trailer, nor on Machete's and her own imdb page.

pirates 3 was way too long, i just couldn't wait for it to be over while watching it. Its one of those movie series, where the first one was great to watch, but as soon as it got into sequel territory it just couldn't recapture the flame. Still, I would probably watch a new one, just not in a theater. Some movies its better to take 15 minute breaks and not have to worry about missing anything.

A comedy that looks pretty funny

The Other Guys (http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/video/article300101.ece?vxSiteId=6247211d-66e0-4454-b73a-3f1610efa39a&vxChannel=Film%20Trailers&vxClipId=1347_SUN47073&vxBitrate=300) - 4 minute preview

starring: Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrel, Samuel L. Jackson, The Rock, and more.
It actually looks pretty funny (minus some Will Ferrell improved lines)


and if you keep letting the video play aftewards, there is a trailer for a movie called SuckerPunch.
It looks lie everytihng a guy would want in an action movie (minus sex & nudity). There are hot chicks, swords, guns, kung fu, dragons, slo-motions action, fantasy settings, and more stuff I'm sure will pique your interest. I couldn't really tell what the movie was about from the preview, but description on Netflix seemed pretty good.
Quote from: SuckerPunch
In this mind-warping action thriller, Baby Doll (Emily Browning), a girl slated for lobotomy in a 1950s-era asylum, leads a group of young female inmates in an attempt to escape both their mental fantasy worlds and the actual institution where they are prisoners. To accomplish her plan, Baby Doll must steal five objects -- but is the man who's trying to stop her real, or a figment of her imagination? Zack Snyder (Watchmen) directs.

Wut? His character hasn't changed since Arrested Development and I think that is the biggest problem with all his movies.
He is always George Michael in every movie. He has been type cast but he is making lots of movies so I'm sure he doesn't really care right now.

Saw Scott Pilgrim as well.  It was really good.  Anyone who is saying that guy can only do "timid Canadian" should see this movie, although he acts that way some he acts completely different at other times, especially the end.  Also, anyone who likes video games should see it, there are a lot of video game references (the Zelda fairy fountain theme in the bathroom is hilarious).  Although one of my friends hasn't played a video game since Pacman and he thought it was great, so it isn't just for video game fans.

Post by: ThePerm on August 23, 2010, 12:56:53 AM
oh yeah i wasn't saying he's just a timid Canadian. Many times it takes the right director to break an actors typecast. Otherwise, the actor just gets identical roles.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: gbuell on August 23, 2010, 08:50:25 AM
Even if he's doing the same thing over and over - that's what he's being asked to do, and he's quite good at it. How many actors really play wildly varying roles between movies, anyway? The list is short.

considering this is Sacha Baron Cohen regularly

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0b_lTEgICw

than we should be pretty good. He looks like Mercury, he just has to change his accent and go higher pitch. I'm confident in his acting, because the guy knows how to be in character.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: nickmitch on September 25, 2010, 01:32:16 AM
I thought the same thing Perm thought when I heard the news. He'll need some accent coaching, sure, but I think he'll do a great job. Borat and Bruno might have people typecasting him in their minds, but those are just two movies. Of course, there was the Ali G Show, but I think you need to give the guy a chance to show his range. Even if it's a helluva chance, playing such a beloved figure.

I'm sure many will agree with me when I say "Your opinion in movies sucks".
Shaun of the Dead was one of the better/best Zombie movies made.

and while we're on the subject of dead people, the remake of Let Me In is looking pretty damn good.

I wasn't the fondest of the original since the subtitles apparently didn't really match what was being said and it was a little boring the way it was shot.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: TJ Spyke on September 25, 2010, 07:16:45 PM
I checked out Shaun because it had good reviews, but I hated the movie. For a comedy, it didn't exactly make me laugh either. Some people love the movie, there are hundreds of movies I would rather watch than it.

Also, not true about firearms in the UK. They are extremely restricted, but you can legally own guns there. Basically the allowed ones can be found at Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_the_United_Kingdom#1997_Firearms_Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_the_United_Kingdom#1997_Firearms_Act)).

Another one off the top of my head that was really good was the Dawn of the Dead remake.
28 Days later was cool and so was the 1980 remake of NotLD.

But SotD was anything but boring and even though it wasn't gut-busting funny, it was still very humorous.

i also looked up that wikipedia article and

they don't have the right to arms, they have the license to arms to be more clear. Also, concealable weapons and handguns are pretty much entirely banned with only 0.1 percent of the population owning any.  Still licensing restrictions and low popularity keeps the ownership level down, contributing to the hilarity of a zombie attack. Yes the average British person would have to fight zombies off with old records and cds, the only available rifle would be a historical one in a tavern several blocks away.

Maybe I could try watching it again to see if my mind has changed, the last time I watched it was around the time it came out on DVD. IIRC, a lot of the "jokes" were typical British humor and I don't find that funny. I will be fair and check the movie out again with Netflix.

I found SotD to be a huge let down. The trailers made it look hilarious. Several other popular comedy movies failed to interest me as well though so I have a theory. Watching comedies like that alone lower the entertainment value. You need to be in a group--and the right kind of group at that.

I feel the same way about Southpark.

Completely bored an unintersted in most episodes unless I'm watching it with someone that enjoys SouthPark, then it's usually very funny.

SotD may be a similar type movie where it helps to be in a good mood, ready to be entertained and it never hurts to watch the movie with someone else that is also likely to enjoy the movie. But that is why I don't usually watch comedies alone, I'll watch horror instead... & SotD is not a horror.

Just in case you haven't heard yet, Batman 3 will be called "The Dark Knight Rises".  Sounds a bit bland to me.

Sounds too similar to the last movie. Though how much you wanna bet it was the crazy popularity of the last one that caused them to choose such a similar name.

Actually, I think the new Batman title fits really well with how the last movie ended. Nearly every in Gotham hates him because of what Harvey did, and now he'll have to face that hatred while trying to protect them all. It sounds like he's going to 'rise' into being the hero again.

Avatar 2 is going into production because James Cameron isn't going to do Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie. Btw, why do thwy always pick white people to play Cleopatra? I know the ruling class in Egypt were lighter skinned, but the meant they were Middle Eastern looking as opposed to 'typical African' black, just like Jesus...

Anyway, I thought Avatar was one of the best movies I've ever seen and I didn't like Titanic, and thought the first Terminator was a very cheesy 'typical 80's' movie, though I did enjoy it, but not as much as the second.

They're saying this one might take us underwater, so expect lots of new amazing visuals, and another round of how life is connected since there will new life to connect to.

Edit: They're also going to turn Michael Jackson's Thriller into a full length movie, an idea Michael apparently had before dying, and now will be done on behalf of his estate.

Edit2: I looked back at some previous posts and I just want to say that I hope Megamind is an attempt by movie studios to show kids that there's more to life than being popular and things like intelligence, pride, and hard-work can carry you further in life, and bring greater happiness/satisfaction than passing good looks and muscles.

Because it's easier for the typical, brain-dead Hollywood audience to identify with? Historically however, Cleopatra would have been very light skinned. By that time, the kingdom was little more than symbolic and a lot of Greek blood was coursing through the crown.

It was in the article I linked to

But what about Wolverine, and the mess that film made of Wade's origin? While they don't say exactly what happens, it sounds as though Deadpool breaks the fourth wall to let the audience know that he thinks it sucked too. So let's all pretend it never happened.

but I can also give you a little snippet from the script too.
**POSSIBLE SPOILER**
Quote from: script
NT. APARTMENT - DAY - PAST

a CLOSE-UP of a Deadpool ACTION FIGURE from 'Wolverine Origins.' Mouth sewn shut. Blades implanted into the wrists. In the exact same POSE we just saw the real Deadpool.

WADE (0.S.) A little piece of me curled up and
died the day this came out.

We PULL OUT to reveal that Wade is referring NOT to the action figure, but to WHAMl'S 'Music From the Edge of Heaven' LP, which he is now holding.
He tosses the LP into a near-full TRASH CAN, right on TOP of the Deadpool action figure.

***ANOTHER POSSIBLE SPOILER*** I LOL'd

DEADPOOL: Ooooo-rlando Jones.

I liked Wolverine Origins. It may not fit perfect into what people imagine is the 'perfect' timeline (seriously, why are the comic books allowed to have multiple variations but the movies aren't?) but it was good for what is was.

Maybe Deadpool kind of sucked, but it wasn't his movie, it was Wolverine's and he ripped **** in that movie, just like he was supposed to. I don't like the bashing of the Origins movie without which this movie probably wouldn't even exist.

It's kind like how Eminem talks **** about his last two albums on his newest one (on Recovery he disses both Encore, and Relapse) and I thought they were both good as well, not his greatest, but had a few good songs on each, and one particularly good, very nearly great, song on each as well.

Art is for interpretation, let sleeping dogs lie.

The first Punisher movie was decent, though he should've been a little darker, and the re-launch wasn't terrible either but the 'fans' hated on both.

Edward Norton's (I forget the director) Hulk was also good but that also got rejected by the 'fans' and now we're going to get a (likely) half-assed T.V show. I say people stop complaining and learn to take things as is.

If you remove prejudices and expectations before seeing a movie, they become much more enjoyable for what they are; simple and (I can't stress this word enough) SINGLE, forms of entertainment.

No. They fucked Wolverine up because they already knew they planned on doing a Deadpool movie afterwards. FOX execs stepped in and did that to Deadpool for who knows what reasons

(Fox Exec says: We want Deadpool to be a crazy mutated mutant... instead of using his 2 swords like normal, make them into retractable blades like Wolverine...
Director/Scriptwriter/Actors say: WTF!? that would be retarded, what about the follow up movie starring Deadpool like we discussed!
Fox Exec: Huh!? uhh... c'mon guys, we're living in the NOW and this is gonna be EPIC.... also make lasers come out of his eyes like Cyclops
Director/Scriptwriter/Actors: But Deadpool can't do that, that would sorta ruin the character and make doing a Deadpool movie a lot harder
Fox Exec: ....Damn you guys whine like bitches, so make sure you sew his mouth shut... maybe next time you won't complain so much
Director/Scriptwriter/Actors: FACEPALM!!!)

Ryan Reynolds has said he was interested in playing Deadpool since years ago and Wolverine was supposed to be a launching pad for that movie to happen. They fucked up the character and everyone that knows the characters including Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman were both very unpleasant about how the Fox money suits could just step in at anytime and ruin alter the movie. I believe both of them(RR & HJ) have both negotiated deals with Fox now to have a more creative role in regards to their own movies to prevent this from happening to any sequels.

Ryan Reynolds has even talked about how good the current script is that was floating around out there, so there is hope that we will get the movie that we want.

Also, Eminems last 2 albums sucked, so I'm glad he was willing to admit that. But that is coming from someone that is not really an Eminim fan outside of his first few albums (before D12 turned his gold finger in one of lead)

I liked the first Punisher and haven't seen the 2nd one yet. So I can't comment on them other than they should have just made a sequel, not a reboot.

The second Hulk was good, but Edward Norton is probably the biggest reason there wasn't a sequel. Marvel supposedly didn't like him after working with him, and thats why he's been replaced in the Avengers movie. I don't know anything about a TV show.

And the problem with a lot of these movies is that ALL of the major comic book movies have decades of source material and millions of fans that grew up knowing the characters and their stories. So we have certain expectations when those characters are brought to life and some suit, who likely hasn't read a single bit of the source material, starts making changes without thinking about how that affect the not only the current movie, but any future sequels and overall fan reaction. It's not like these characters were made up for the movies afterall, so it would be perfectly reasonable to have expectations and prejudices going into these types of movies. If the studios can't deliver a faithful recreation of the IP they licensed, then don't bother.
Next someone is gonna say that the CDi games were good for what they were and we should appreciate it as art and entertainment. Bullshit by any other name still stinks so let's not purposely try to step in it.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: MaryJane on October 31, 2010, 07:45:00 AM
Ahhh... to have a point missed so badly.

Art is for interpretation: just because YOU think a movie or album sucked doesn't mean it did, it means YOU didn't like it. Movies, music, painting, books, and self-expression; all forms of art, all open to be INDIVIDUALLY judged by INDIVIDUALS.

It's one thing when someone releases a half-assed effort, but in Wolverine Origins, despite the changes to Deadpool (again it wasn't even his movie, and WO was supposed to launch lots of other individual movies) the actors, directors, editors, sound crew, etc. all put their best efforts forward.

Also, 'decades of source material'. I ask again, why are those decades of source materials allowed to have incongruent side stories and even originating stories as they switch from writer to writer and illustrator to illustrator but the movies aren't? There are like 3 or so different origin stories for Wolverine, and I think just as many for Spiderman. There really isn't a 'perfect' timeline or even character model, only what people incorrectly imagine there is, and I find that to be based mostly in the old cartoons and T.V shows, not even the comic books.
Not saying that's you personally.


And I say again, people who read the comic books should be used to differing story arcs and changes to a character powers and attitude, they did it all the time.

You're free to your opinions, but you're not free to purport your opinion as unchallengeable fact.

Perhaps there are people who liked CDi games, I've never played them, but it doesn't seem ludicrous to me.

One man's bullshit, is perhaps another man's favorite childhood memory.

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on October 31, 2010, 12:33:42 PM
The actors in the movie didn't like the overall outcome of the movie, not just me.

The origin of Wolverine as presented in the film was fine, but thats not why the movie gets hated on.
It's not really hated on for anything to do with Wolverine, but more how they handled the villain. They butchered Deadpool and that is simple fact.
It's also common knowledge that this cash in on the Wolverine popularity was a Deadpool debut which was to lead almost immediately to a Deadpool movie. They've been trying to find a way to bring Deadpool to the bigscreen for a long time, but have been waiting on a good way to introduce him. This was 2 Origin movies in 1... and it did not go so well.

This is why Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds supposedly renegotiated deals with Fox to have some creative control moving forward because in order to create art, the artist(s) needs to be able to portray his vision in tact and that is not what happened with the Wolverine Origins movie; some suit stepped in during the painting and said "we need more purple here and here, and turn it sideways, it would look better that way". So it wasn't me that missed your own point.

This movie was "art" interrupted.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: MaryJane on October 31, 2010, 05:42:29 PM
I don't understand why the villains portrayal matters to the movie? Wasn't he the 'classic' Deadpool until they started altering him, or am I remebering that wrong? (Honest question)

And (another honest question) do you know for certain that it was a Fox exec and not an overzealous writer who wanted to bring his own personal touch to the X-Men universe who decided on Deadpool's portrayal?

Also, usually when an actor isn't pleased with how a movie turned out it's because 1. The movie didn't go over well, and the actor wants to distance himself from it so the Hollywood elites won't associate them with bad movies or 2. Because it wasn't edited to their liking, meaning the scenes and/or cuts of those scenes that the director chose weren't to the actors taste, but again that criticism is usually reserved for movies that did not go over with audiences. If you know for certain that their objections were because of executive pressure, then I stand to be corrected.

 When Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds got their scripts, they should have known exactly what the producers and writers wanted to do with each character. Scripts are more than just lines; they are detailed worded descriptions of the character. Everything from what the character says, where they are facing, and where they are moving.

It might not have been so easy for RR, but HJ threatening to walk off because of drastic changes to the script would have to make any exec think twice. So either the artists submitted themselves to the changes, or knew well in advance.

As for the actors signing contracts that allow them a more creative say in the movie, I don't know if it went through, but a girl I went to high school with and is now trying to become an actress, told me a while back, that the Actor's union (is it called the Actor's Guild, or is that just the awards show?) was pushing all studios to give such rights to actors.

Either way, the final product is the art. Once you start asking how it was made, you start to lose objectivity. Not saying not to question.


Edit: For clarity

I don't have links and I don't have time to look for them right now, as the stories are old now, but they weren't pleased because it was a last minute script change after filming had started or something like that. Niether of them were happy with the changes made but obviously not enough to walk (RR still wanted to do the Deadpool movie). And in this case the villian mattered because Wolverine Origins was also a Deadpool origin aimed to launch the next spin-off movie.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: MaryJane on October 31, 2010, 10:31:25 PM
Wolverine's origin was Deadpool's death in this iteration, which again, unless I'm remembering wrong he started off 'normal' in the movie, and only as he neared his death did he change into things he wasn't; the things forced upon, just like another popular Marvel character who wasn't born with an animantium skeleton. Personally, that's why I liked Deadpool, he was kind of a, 'this could've happened to you Wolverine' worst case scenario potrayal, and I was o.k with that.

And the script changes; they submitted to them. If they really had a problem they would have walked away it happens often enough, and if the star is big enough, the whole movie goes in the trash which is why such conflicts tried to get resolved quickly.

Also, I saw the trailer for Faster, it looks like a lot like Death Proof, but with a 'good guy' bent on revenge driving the muscle car and one bad guy driving a ferrari.

Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on November 01, 2010, 01:24:49 AM
I'm not an expert on Deadpool or anything, but as far as I know he was a "normal" person who was given a mutant healing factor from Wolverine, but never got any other enhancements. This movie was his origin. They screwed it up by giving him adamantium katanas that retract into his arm and Cyclops's Eye Beams. And Deadpools signature wisecrakin was taken away when they sowed up his mouth. (I'm feeling like a broken record here re-explaining the same thing over and over again.)

as far as walking off the set... not if you want to get paid. RR wasn't really established as "Deadpool" so he doesn't have the fanbase to make such demand for that role like HJ would for Wolverine. Also there are such things as contracts, so I doubt one can just walk away once past a certain point of pre-production without some sort of penalty. But like I said before, they weren't happy with the changes, but RR still really wanted to do the Deadpool movie (and after reading a piece of the script, the movie could be the best comicbook movie yet) and walking out on Fox would pretty much make sure that didn't happen.... if the movie ever gets the green light(the script so far was Hitgirl & Bid Daddy in their spectacular action scenes from KickAss meets the wise crackin Van Wilder).

*I should also add that W:Origins wasn't really a full Origins for DP, but more of an Introduction that touches on his origin story to set you up for the spin off.

forget about deadpool, Green Lantern is going to be huge and Ryan Reynolds should just focus on that, with which they could just reboot deadpool in not sucky form.


This Deadpool script sort of dismisses the aborted version of himself from Origins with a reference to himself in that movie. Seriously, from what I've read of this script so far has me hyped for this version of the movie to become a reality. I have no doubts that RR will do a good GL, but I'm not too familiar with the character and not super hyped for the movie even though I will watch it with much enthusiasm.

Post by: MaryJane on November 01, 2010, 09:15:15 AM
BnM, we've nearly exhausted this argument, but this was Wolverine Origins; screw Deadpool. The only thing Deadpool, Colossus, Sabertooth, Gambit, and the others matter to Wolverine's movie, is were they relevant to his story, did they add anything? Not were they faithful representations of this perceived perfect timeline/scenario.

ALL of those character I listed and others, are for whom this movie was to be a test run for their own Origins movie, because they felt the X-Men series was over.

Personally, I think it's a clever executive ploy to make the next one about the character everyone got upset about; it provides that much more incentive for people to see it, and since he was a 'bad guy' in WO that offers even more intrigue for others. Either way, these movies are all instant cash cows; despite the Deadpool hate WO brought in a ton of money. I think the first Hulk movie has been the only superhero movie to not make a profit.


The thing about Green Lantern is that I think they're either going underuse or overuse the ring. Iron Man was good/better than expected because they made it at the right time technology wise, had a great actor, and a storyline relevant to our times. I'm hoping Green Lantern will be good, but for now I am rather skeptical.

The Mirror (via Film School Rejects) spoke to actor/writer Michael Jai White who revealed that he's working on a sequel to the blaxploitation action parody Black Dynamite. White said, "I've had the idea for Black Dynamite 2 for quite a while now, and it's gonna start where Black Dynamite left off . There's lots of things we didn't get a chance to do in the first one." After pimp-slapping the First Lady, what else is there?

White wasn't exactly forthcoming with details, but did say: "You know how Black Dynamite just grows in ridiculousness? Well, this will be a fitting sequel."

Just read on CNN that the next Wolverine won't be a sequel to Origins but a stand-alone movie that has Wolverine going to Japan where he falls for a woman who is already betrothed and then he fights her brothers and father to win her hand.

It's mentioned in CNN's comments section that the storyline is lifted from a miniseries done by Frank Miller in the '80s.

Hugh Jackman says to expect a dark drama, because this is Wolverine, not Popeye...

The movie is being directed by Darren Aronofsky who also directed Requiem for a Dream, and The Wrestler. He was also supposed to do a new Robocop movie but refused to do it in 3D like the studio (I think Miramax) was pushing him to do.

This director, and the fact that the storyline is a Frank Miller creation gives me a lot of hope for this movie, I just hope they don't decide to give Silver Samurai red swords, or Lady Deathstrike (Mariko) a scar on her face, otherwise the whole movie will suck because a secondary character isn't portrayed in a manner pleasing to fans ;) .

i'm sure the movie will look better than the trailer, i dont think it looks bad really, maybe cartooney. It might be much much better when your watching the scenes with context.

Also note the mask looks different in different clips. The different fx firms handling the special effects are probably not all using the same color green. Another note..the color green is a problematic color. Computer monitors cannot display certain types of green, it might look different on film. Though i'd imagine as an fx artist it would be difficult to adjust between the mediums. They should throw a flair of cyan in.

Potentially bad news about Deadpool movie: http://movies.ign.com/articles/113/1138094p1.html

Quote
Comic book writer-artist Rob Liefeld has taken to Twitter to rip 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the feature film adaptation of his comic Deadpool.

CinemaBlend points out a steady stream of insults hurled by Liefeld at the studio, the reasons for which aren't immediately apparent but obviously Fox did something to piss him off.

Here's a taste of what Liefeld tweeted today:

"Dear FOX studios, get your act together. Deadpool is not Green Lantern, not a family film. DP is "filthy" think Expendables $$ w/ RR"

"Also FOX, find your balls and film the script from Rheese and Wernick. You will make loads of money and thank yourself later."

"It boils down to this, Ryan Reynolds, Mr. Sexiest Man alive paired with best comic script ever written, no-brainer....make Deadpool happen!"

Looks like Fox wants to turn Deadpool into a PG-13 movie. After the first Punisher movie was rated-R and didn't sell well, I figured their wouldn't be another, but a Deadpool movie should be at least borderline R rated if not fully.

I'm not hip to twitter lingo, or whatever lingo 'Expendables $$ w/ RR' translates into something meaningful, I know the movie Expendables, and I know what w/ is, but other than that I'm lost.  If anyone knows let me know.

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on December 03, 2010, 12:21:55 PM
RR = Ryan Reynolds and the script was pretty damn good.

The level of violence is no different than maybe Kill Bill or what I've seen on The Walking Dead and Misfits.
There was plenty of blood and some dismemberment but nothing that should get it a Hard R since violence is pretty acceptable by US standards.

Marketed right, I'm sure this movie would be alot better than what I've seen of Green Lantern, R rating or not.

This is apparently old news, but I just found out that the next Spider-Man movie is going to a reboot, and will start with him in High School again. Even more frustrating to me, is that they're doing the multiple villain thing again which I hated about Spider-Man 3. This series has some of the best super villains ever, and they deserve more than a passing glimpse, like Sand-Man got.

Unless the next Spider-Man is going to do some sort of alternate-universe storyline, I can't see the point in watching this.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: gbuell on December 07, 2010, 12:46:09 PM
Yeah more than 2 villains is just a bad idea, and even just 2 is tricky. Reboots are great sometimes but I liked the original two Spider-Man movies enough that I don't think it's warranted. We shouldn't feel the need to reboot a series every time it has one bad movie (Spider-Man 3).
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Sundoulos on December 07, 2010, 02:16:50 PM
Maybe the powers that be just thought it would be too jarring to an audience if both of the original lead actors changed. 

I'd agree that it just seems as if it's too soon for another Spidey reboot, but I suppose Sony feels the need to cash in on the movie rights while they still have them.  Still, it will be interesting to see how they try to differentiate the new movies from the old.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on December 07, 2010, 02:20:05 PM
Sony has to reboot to keep the series alive or the rights revert back to Marvel. Same with Ghost Rider if a new movie isn't out by 2012 I believe (I think Nick Cage is already already working on it).

As far as Spidey reboot though, I heard it was switched to College since the actors involved looked a little too old for Highschool. That shouldn't really change the story much if at all though.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Morari on December 07, 2010, 05:01:17 PM
Maybe a Spider-Man reboot will allow Sam Raimi the time to make a decent film... like Evil Dead 4!
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: MaryJane on December 07, 2010, 05:50:28 PM
I hope Sony goes massive budget and fails, unless of course they do an alternate universe story. But apparently one of the villains is going to be the little known ProtoGoblin so it seems they're reaching in the wrong direction.

If they didn't want to continue the established storyline, a one-off story might be less jarring than a reboot. Everyone and their mother saw the first Spider-Man. A reboot so soon makes me feel cheated, especially since the first was by far the best, and this reboot will have to top that not to be considered a failure.
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: ThePerm on December 07, 2010, 06:35:23 PM
2 villains works only if there is a definite lesser villain. Only Nolan seems to be able to really handle it though.

@Shaymin

Why? What about 3D detracts from the movie?

Maybe movies don't 'need' it, but do movies really 'need' color and sound to get their point across?

Silent black and white films were plenty entertaining, why ruin them with people talking, and color that distracts from the story?

Oh, and those fancy new cameras are the future. They are RED Epic cameras, and Peter Jackson has ordered 30 of them to shoot The Hobbit.

Post by: MaryJane on December 07, 2010, 11:09:09 PM
So if you don't think perfect color replication makes or breaks a movie, then how is it detracting? Is the movie less enjoyable because the blue looks a little green? Would you even really notice something like that without a side-by-side comparison, to know what color the director intended to show?
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Stogi on December 08, 2010, 12:40:56 AM
Yeah, 3D movies do seem a bit darker but that's only because of the glasses.

I think 3D is awesome, sometimes breathtakingly so. How To Train Your Dragon is a good example of how 3D can make a movie just that much better.

What I don't like is the post production 3D work (i.e. the shoe-horned kind). Clash of Titans featured post production 3D work and so did The Last Air Bender. Both those movies sucked, but the 3D was god awful in its own right.

Anyway, once we do not need glasses anymore it'll become apparent to even the biggest hater why true 3D (filmed from the start in 3D) is and always will be the new standard.

In ultimates uncle ben and aunt may are hippies, which is why sally field is in. Martin Sheen is pretty much a typical Uncle Ben sort.

The beginning and end of the movie are set in present day, but the rest of the movie takes place between 1939 and 1945.

Basically, Steve Rogers wants to join the military but is deemed unfit to serve. He instead volunteers for the top secret Project: Rebirth and becomes Captain America. From what I have read, there is a scene that shows a fighter plane in the Arctic before they flashback to World War II.

Supposed trailer for a new Mortal Kombat movie (http://kotaku.com/5558339/if-this-is-the-next-mortal-kombat-movie-sign-us-up)

It looks so deliciously horrible!  I love how they try to rationalize the story.  ;D

Look slike Warner Bros. gave it the green light to be turned into a 10 episode Online Mini-series focusing on Michael Jai Whites Jax character from the original short.
http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/23052
Quote
So much for the proposed Mortal Kombat remake that Warner Bros. Pictures had hoped to get off the ground. Still, fans of the bloody battle are in for a treat as Bloody Disgusting learned that director Kevin Tancharoen - who directed the awesome online short - will return behind the camera for a 10-episode web series dedicated to the popular video game. Penned by Tancharoen, Todd Helbing, and Aaron Helbing, star Michael Jai White leads the cast as "Major Jackson 'Jax' Briggs. Shooting will take place in Vancouver this coming February. Contested expected to be cast are: Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana/Mileena and of course Scorpion. No release date is planned, and there's no word on that R-rated remake. The only plot details we could conjure up is that a few Earthlings will fight to save the planet from Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung, two Gods ruling over parallel universes, or something to that effect.

I'll be checking this out whenever it becomes available, and hopefully it 's good enough to lead to something much bigger, like an HBO mini-series or a Movie or something.

Remmeber this Mortal Kombat short starring Michael Jai White aka "Black Dynamite"

Supposed trailer for a new Mortal Kombat movie (http://kotaku.com/5558339/if-this-is-the-next-mortal-kombat-movie-sign-us-up)

It looks so deliciously horrible!  I love how they try to rationalize the story.  ;D

Look slike Warner Bros. gave it the green light to be turned into a 10 episode Online Mini-series focusing on Michael Jai Whites Jax character from the original short.
http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/23052

That's pretty awesome news. I was always a big fan of the original film adaptation. That web trailer was pretty impressive, even if the style was a huge departure. Hopefully they'll keep Jeri Ryan around, too! ;)

It is kind of odd that they mention Durak in the article... I mean, wouldn't Goro make more sense?

Looks like Expendables is getting a sequel.
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/48122 (http://www.aintitcool.com/node/48122)
Also sounds like Van Damme might be in this one as long as Seagal isn't.

What would you guys want out of an Expendables sequel? (I hope more for an A-Team sequel, but Expendables 2 could be great)

I'm hoping Arnold's team goes head to head with Stallone's team and Willis even has a bigger roll orchestrating the whole thing.
I'm hoping Arnold's team is a carbon copy of Stallone's team and looks a little something like this

Stallone vs Arnold
Jet Li vs Jackie Chan
Terry Crews vs Michael Jai White
Statham vs Wesley Snipes
Mickey Rourke vs Danny Trejo
Lundgren vs The Rock
__________ vs Van Damme( or Seagal)

and I haven't paired up them all since I don't remember everyone on the team. Did Lundgren die at the end?
Who am I missing, who else should be included and what/who would you change?




edit: added Danny "Machete" Trejo

Post by: oohhboy on January 18, 2011, 05:26:57 PM
Clearly the only one that can fight Van Damme is Van Damme himself and Seagal has started to go Shatner.

The one biggest thing I would ask for is a competent editor who doesn't snort coke like a kid eating sugar while editing. That and Sly getting out of that wheelchair that is CG to cover up his lack of experience with real effects.

He tried to make an old school movie but forgot about making it old school or even tried outside casting old school actors.

I much rather see another Machete than another A-team movie. A-team is a retarded movie, but damn it you never go full retard!
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on January 18, 2011, 06:19:45 PM
I haven't seen Machete yet, bit The A-Team was great. Way better than Expendables.
Expendables was a mess mostly in the editing department, but all over the movie.
The A-Team was a non-serious action movie done mostly right and I would've hoped for a sequel to that before Expendables.

But Expendables has a lot of potential to be something better than it was, so I hope that they learn from all the mistakes made with the first and use that to improve the second.

Hathaway might make a sexy Catwoman, but she has a HUGE mouth (like Julia Roberts) and it can be quite off-putting at times.

and according to IMDB, Tom Hardu is only 5'9", isn't that a little short to play a BIG character like Bane?

Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Ian Sane on January 19, 2011, 02:30:07 PM
Going back to Expandables 2, my problem with the first film is that it is everything I HATE about modern action movies.  Just a bunch of shitty looking CG and shaky cam **** where you can't tell what is going on.

GOOD action movies SHOW you what the hell is going on.  That's because good action movies have good fight choreography and impressive stunts.  They WANT you to see it because it is impressive.  CG is not impressive.  You get no rush from seeing CG things explode.  The rush is from the real object exploding.  You want to see cars get wrecked and sets get blown up.  The fact that that really happened is what blows you away.  And shaky cam is just to hide the fact that nothing exciting is actually happening.  You think Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan would have been as successful if the camera was shaking all over the place during their fight scenes?  The whole point is they have all this cool **** that you want the best view of.

My brother and I love action films and we have identified what we consider the five crucial elements that make up a good action movie.

1. fights - it can have swords or knives, basically hand-to-hand combat.
2. shooting - ie: gun fights, anything involving projectile weapons and long-range combat
3. stunts - guys jumping from building to building, bailing from moving vehicles, etc.
4. chases - car chase is most famous, could be on foot though or with any vehicle
5. destruction - explosions, car wrecks, stuff gets destroyed

A great action film should ideally have all five elements.  Any sort of impressive action movie set piece contains at least one of these core elements.  If you kept the same Expendables script and just filmed it differently it would have been fine.
 
Regarding Batman.  The reason to cast Anne Hathaway is because she is a big star.  She's pretty and she can act fine but the reason they are casting her is star power.  That is a big problem with blockbuster films.  They think about the star-\ power first and the question of whether the person looks or fits the part is secondary.  But then when I heard they were casting Heath Ledger as the Joker I thought that was retarded.  I figured they cast him entirely because at the time he was hot and had star power.  In the end it became an legendary performance that will forever be his most famous role.  So you never know.  Though hopefully Hathaway's Batman experience ends up better for her then it did for Ledger.

If it was all about star power someone far more famous would have been cast as Bane as well. Casting isn't a problem for Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight is solid evidence of that. The truth is, Hathaway is an excellent actress (see: Rachel Getting Married), regardless of how famous she is.

Quote from: Summary

Quentin Dupieux directs this inventive twist on low-rent revenge flicks, which follows a car tire named Robert that rolls through the desert Southwest using its strange psychic powers to blow up birds, bunnies, human beings and more. But when Robert spies a gorgeous woman motoring down the highway, he decides to follow her and take a chance on love. This gleefully over-the-top black comedy stars Cecelia Antoinette and Thomas F. Duffy.

Wow, unless 'Hood' is the greatest thing since sliced bread, it's going to be the movie the critics try to use to derail Will Smith's career. Mark my words. He's been doing too good, now his kids are doing good, and his marriage is successful, they need something to bring him down with and this could be it. They tried a little with Hancock, but that was a good movie that was advertised poorly (in that the movie was completely different than what they advertised, like Observe and Report, and even Kick-Ass to a certain degree) and people still liked it. Maybe I'm just feeling paranoid for some strange reason...

It's no secret that The Man® is out to make an example of Will Smith as soon as the opportunity presents itself. That is why he has to choose his projects with extreme caution.

I've yet to see Will Smith in anything that wasn't terrible.

I would totally watch Bill & Ted 3. Somehow though, I don't logically have much hope for it being as good as the previous two entries in the series.

The Matrix 4 and 5?! Seriously? The only way that could possibly be of interest were if they actually made them as The Matrix 2 & 3 and completely retconned the already botched sequels they made. Oh, and didn't make it in 3D.

I'm probably alone on this one, but I liked Wild Wild West as well. Sure it was corny and historically inaccurate, but it was funny, and since it was a comedy that's all it had to be.

I loved I Am Legend. The ending was great, and I'm also looking forward to the prequel. It's also rumored that there's going to be a sequel to Independece Day, and a MiB 3, two more that I'm looking forward to if made.

That's fine if you disagree. I find him to be quite annoying as an actor, personally. Men in Black was entertaining, but not because of Will Smith.

If nothing else, I can be sore that he was involved in ruining such great stories as I, Robot and I Am Legend. :P

I'd like to join in this discussion only guessing at what it's about from the last three post (and only post on this page) and say that after watching Hancock for the first time yesterday..  I don't think I like Will Smith. He makes decent movies, but his persona in most of them just got old I guess. After awhile it seems like he's just playing the same guy over and over again and I can't help but get sick of it.

With that said, I've yet to see Pursuit of Happiness, so maybe that'll turn it around..? I dunno, it might still annoy me that he's so rich he can just buy movies for him and his family to be in.. just sayin'.

Also, the original reason I'm in this thread:

Just read Matrix 4 & 5 are probably going to happen.. and maybe Bill & Ted 3!? (http://www.worstpreviews.com/headline.php?id=20424) :/
Title: Re: New Movies we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: MaryJane on January 24, 2011, 05:58:47 PM
Um, all action heroes have pretty much the same persona. I don't think someone timid is capable of saving the world from aliens, disease generated zombies, or evil masterminds. And you should check out his dramas; Pursuit of Happyness(sic), Legend of Bagger Vance, Seven Pounds, and an older movie I'm drawing a blank on where he tricks rich families into letting them into their homes. That movie was brilliant, and I don't know how he didn't win an Oscar for it. He's one of the greatest actors of our time, right up there with Johnny Depp imo, but as you mentioned, a lot of people are just jealous of him because he's black and successful (not calling you a racist in anyway).

Just a side note, I hate the unwilling hero in movies and anime, it really pisses me off when people don't take up the responsibilities their given.

Will Smith's best action movie was either I. Robot, MIB or Bad Boys. He's still a good actor. His yell when he's getting tossed around cracks me up everytime for some reason and I sincerely believe the emotions he displays are real (or realistic). But I can understand how people can get burned out with his action roles.

That said, I'm always excited to see him doin movies. Though Seven Pounds was bullshit.

I liked Will in Independence Day. He is playing the up and coming guy who has to prove himself, but at least it wasn't a tentpole character for him at that point. I Am Legend throws that character off, which is good. Really, the bad part of that movie was the creatures. Though watching the original Omega Man, I think I prefer the CG ones. And if you haven't, go see Made In America with Whoopi Goldberg and Ted Danson. Its Will's second film and you get to see a glimer of the movie star he is today.

Someone fucked up with the Matrix. The original was great because of the social commentary and skewed way of looking at the world. Some original camera work is icing on the cake. Then someone decided it was all about action, not subtle jabs at the status quo, and the next two movies were shat out with a thuderous thud. I can only hope that the next movies have a bit more bite to them.

I can't lie. I've always enjoyed the second Matrix. Not because of it's greatness -- it is pretty damn stupid with a nonsensical plot. (That guy at the end, for real?)

But that movie is the best of the three in terms of action. I love the hallway scene in the first movie, but nothing compares to the hour long action scene that takes place first in a foyer, then a parking lot, then a highway. I was on the edge of my seat yellin "Dammmmmmmmmn!" the first time I saw that, and it doesn't get any worse with multiple viewings.

The third film is terrible though. The only part I like was when they flew out of the sky and saw the "real sun". That was mesmerizing, but it only lasted maybe 5 seconds.

I really disliked how the 3rd Matrix movie ended. And I hate how people try to explain it away as 'some sort of eastern thought/philosophy' thing. Really they sucked at writing properly. I think they just didn't outline the plot and so when they started to arrive at the end of their story they went "Oh, crap, we don't know how to end this mess!" and left a ton of plot holes and viewers scratching heads. It's either that or they really did steal the script from that lady and that is why the later films were terrible.

Matrix 2 & 3 were also the films that started that nasty film fad of filming sequel 2 and 3 of a hit new movie back to back with conjoined stories and leaving a huge nasty gap at the end of the second film. I'm more accepting of arcing story lines than most but I dislike when they do it in a way where you feel the 3rd film is rushed and incomplete. Better to take a bit of extra time and do it right instead of spitting out the film in a years time.

I Am Legend was enjoyable but I think I prefered the alternate ending better. Felt more complete. I started listening to the original novel on CD but never finished it so I don't know if they followed the book very well.

The Omega Man was a very loose adaptation. While I'm generally a big fan of Heston, I would suggest watching The Last Man on Earth instead. It stars the ever-so brilliant Vincent Price in a screenplay that was actually written by Richard Matheson. ;)

It's rather daunting task, but if you watch all 3 Matrix movies back to back they seem a whole lot better.

I loved the first movie so much that it was painful when I originally watched the 2nd and 3rd, but one day I was home with a big bag of goodies, and one of the movie channels was showing them in a row. So I plopped in front of the tube and with the aide of DVR (pausing for bathroom breaks) I watched all 3 and was blown away, and I actually thought the 3rd was the best in terms of being a complete movie because it wraps up some holes from the first that I had forgotten about in the space between the movies, while providing good action and drama.

I disliked The Matrix Reloaded and absolutely hated Revolutions. Both films had a lot of filler, but Revolutions was by far the worst offender.

The end of Reloaded left the door open for a really intriguing conclusion to the trilogy. Instead we got a boring mech battle and some cop-out peace treaty. The entire speech with the Architect should have been used as a springboard to reveal that the "real world" was in fact just a secondary Matrix. The machines have to keep humans happy, right? What else would keep the revolutionaries happy than to give them a dismal "reality" to flee to and fight for? That would have also helped to explain how Neo could magically see and destroy machines outside of the Matrix.

There are some pretty good fan edits out there that combine the two films into one entirely watchable sequel. Trim the fat, restructure the story a bit, and suddenly the sequel looks a lot more viable.

Before Bryan Singer came on to direct Superman Returns and cast Brandon Routh, Cavill had been one of the frontrunner choices for Brett Ratner and McG before they left the picture. That Superman was younger, and this time, the intention was to cast an actor near 30. Cavill is 27, so things worked out just right for him.

The picture is produced by Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder, with a script by David S. Goyer, based on story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are exec producers. Cavill's repped by CAA.

I think he could pull off both looks if they switched between both pics. One being Clark and the other being Superman.

I was hoping for Joe Manganiello, but Cavill looks pretty much the same...and also...

yeah Clark Kent should have a beard....i mean that would make the glasses/no glasses thing even more believable.

bout time they announced who'd be superman...the speculation stops!

yeah, the suit looked a little different in the initial shot, all these are taken off people cell phone camera, and they don't have the same type of lighting film will have. My post film impression is that it looks better than Birthday Party Costume Spidey and not quite as good as Raimy Spidey, i did some post effects on some of the images myself and they looked much better. That is a ridiculous blue though. From a distance though, Spiderman looks like Spiderman. Up close that mask looks like crap.

The Chicago Code - Mondays 9pm FOX

From the Creator of The Shield - Shawn Ryan
A cop show where the audience rides along with the cops and the enemy is clearly known.
It sounds like it's going to focus on all aspects of the city with lots of character development much like The Wire but provide much more action just like The Shield.

Could be the best of the two best cop shows (The Shield & The Wire) combined by the creator of one of those 2 shows.

Looks like some one has been playing too much Medal of Honor lately.

Anybody know anything about that new movie starring Liam Neeson called Unknown? It feels like Taken Part 1.5, I love my Taken and those French action films. Good initial vibe, but more I look into it, less good it feels.

Taken 1.5.... this time it was his whole existence that was taken.


But I think it seems kinda interesting. I've only seen the trailers so I can't really tell you anymore about it other than what you probably already know.

Post by: oohhboy on February 04, 2011, 02:45:46 PM
Actually on a related note, Liam signed on sometime last year to make Taken 2 so Unknown is somewhat redundant. Unknown feels a little Wannbe in a lot of ways. Liam is going to be good, but I don't like whats surrounding him.

During the Super Bowl they showed a small trailer for Thor, and I disliked it just as much as I disliked the Green Lantern trailer. To be honest, no matter what the reviews I will watch both movies, but to me both movies share the same problem; the hero is too unrealistic to be done with real people.

A little strange, but let me try again with more words. With characters like Superman, the Hulk, and the X-Men, each character's power comes from themselves, and for the most part are  very singular. Even though Superman has a bunch of powers, each does one thing. With Thor and GL, they have objects that also have powers, and that doesn't carry over well. I'm getting lost in my own thoughts here, so my point, and question, is why don't movies, especially movies for these kinds of characters, go the Beowulf route, with near photorealistic CGI all the way through? The art style can be more authentically represented, and the CGI moments won't look like CGI moments, because the whole movie will be done that way. Just my two cents.

Oh, and two more cents, I liked Taken a lot, but I thought there was an opportunity for a sequel in that he didn't take down the entire syndicate or whatever you want to call it. I can see the sequel starting off with Liam waking from a nightmare in which he remembers the other girls he saw en route to rescuing his daughter, and then from information his daughter gives him, finds and kills the rest of the scumbags.

Just fyi, child prostitution/trafficking/slavery is still a massive problem, even in "civilized" countries like these United States.

I don't know if the movie will be good, but I love that they did that with the web shooters. I hated that the previous trilogy had Parker naturally produce the webbing. If the new movie is more like the 90s Fox cartoon (which I still think is the best version of the character), then I may like it.

May I present to you the insanity that is tactical Bunny action that is Cat **** One (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMlmEFIxdb4). The first episode is free to view. It is the most AWWW so cute package of well animated violence ever created. Through all the 22 minutes of violence I couldn't get past how adorable it all is. There are more episodes being made or something, but it's all abit in the air.

Unfortunately, as amazing as it is, the DVD/Bluray the one episode and weights in at $29.95 which price wise is only a step or two away from being degenerate matter. That said, it certinly something to look forward to if they ever finish and release a full season.

Yeah, good luck to them trying to get people to pay nearly $30 for one episode, they must have been high when they decided that because it doesn't matter how good the show is if they charge that much. It looks nice though.

A new movie I suggest people check it out is Rosedale.  It's low budget direct-to-DVD horror/action movie about a cult trying to sacrifice a victim to summon a demon.  The victim's only hope is Victor Whiskey, a gun toting badass who specializes in the occult.
 
One the key reasons I have an interest in this film is that I'm in it!  I play the leader of the cult.  The film was written and directed by my brother.

Starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Nathan Fillion, Kevin Bacon and more
it's like the lower budget version of Kick Ass only not quite the same

and I know what you're thinking after watching that trailer....
a little less than sold so maybe you'll see it when it airs on the IFC, so here is a 2 minute clip from the movie that might change your mind.

I'm looking forward to Game of Thrones, as well as The Borgias on Showtime, which comes out April 3, and Camelot on Starz which debuts April 1.

I've mostly grown tired of what's on 'regular' T.V. With few exception (Fringe) it's all recycled stroylines and plebian drama. The shows on premium T.V (I'm also looking forward to the return of Nurse Jackie, and The United States of Tara) push the envelope with new ideas and relatable drama. Anyway, that's my two cents.

Did you happen to see Pillars of the Earth based on Ken Follet's novel of the same name on Starz? That stuck close to the book, but felt rushed and different.

Then there's True Blood on HBO, which stuck close to the first Sookie Stackhouse book for the first season, swayed away in the second, and only used the book as a base in the third season.

I say all that to say that I haven't read the books Game of Thrones is based on, and I'm glad I haven't. I'm so intrigued by the show that I want to, but I find reading the books after seeing the movie or show is better than the opposite.

Netflix just knocked things up a notch. They're moving into original programming. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/it-begins-netflix-branches-out-into-original-progr,53217/?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=feeds&utm_source=avclub_rss_daily)

Quote
First they came for your brick-and-mortar Blockbusters, then they gunned for your pay cablers, and now they’re making a bid to become their very own network: Netflix has just made a surprising move into original programming by outbidding the likes of HBO and AMC for the rights to House Of Cards, David Fincher’s adaptation of the British book and miniseries of the same name. Acquiring the drama (which, as previously reported, stars Kevin Spacey as a ruthless politician) reportedly cost Netflix an estimated $100 million up front and a commitment to two seasons at 26-episodes—the sort of deal no one’s ever had the guts to make before. Obviously it’s an expensive gamble, but more importantly, it’s one that could herald the tectonic shift from traditional TV networks toward an Internet-based, streaming future should it prove successful. Next up: Netflix handles your dreams.

They'd rather charge everyone even more (and profit even more when you pay the overage fees) than upgrade their networks. It's the same reason why rural areas don't have any access at all, or cities don't have competing providers. It's all about giving you the least they can, while charging whatever they want. Today's "bandwidth hogs" are tomorrow's typical users.

I used to have two-way satellite internet (the only option for a very long time). It was always capped, so I've grown accustomed to watching my usage. It's not hard to download 20GB a day. When you have several computers in the house and you're all streaming Netflix, watching HD YouTube and Hulu, playing online video games through your consoles, etc.

The only hope we have here is that the country's new money will oppose the old money. You'll see companies like Google and NetFlix (who depend upon fast, available broadband) stepping up their political games against the entrenched telecom dinosaurs.

haha well good, most high speed internet providers use dodgy tactics like using Mbps, rather than MBps to confuse consumers. I would have done the math, but i just didnt feel like it. Doing the math now that i dont have to convert bytes to bits and that bullshit. Only 6 days of continual use would get you a terabyte when your paying for the month. When I hear that im getting 1.7 megabytes a second I expect to get 4,112,640 megabytes a month..a little over 4 terabytes a month

Yeah, I feel no sympathy for you when you admit that you reached 1 TB by doing illegal activities. It's hard to see anybody getting that high only through legal means (it's possible, but you would have to be doing stuff like streaming 12 hours a day, downloading tons of stuff, etc.). The Obama administration is trying to get Internet providers to expand broadband to more areas. I can't imagine using satellite Internet because it's so slow and expensive. Even though I don't do stuff like Unagi, I do oppose caps or throttling of the Internet in any form. I don't want to have some sites load slower, or worry about how much Netflix streaming I can watch.

idk if your watching an hd streaming service then youd get about the same bandwidth use if you were downloading movies. Say I pay for Hulu HD and I want to watch all of Lost in HD, and maybe a couple of other shows. In 12 days assuming i slept I would use a terabyte of bandwidth that month. If I repeated I would be able to use 2.33 terabytes in a 28 day month.

Facebook & Google especially need to step up their political influences.
Those are 2 relatively new companies that rake in money by the boatload and should definitely start throwing it around to gain influence and favors. Of course that when they start to become exactly what they never wanted to be but at the moment we need them to be.

Google does already have Gov. contracts for Locational data stuff, not to mention all the "anonymous" search data & archived internet and then Facebook has personal information on the entire countries voting constituents and government officials.

But anyway, we are getting way off topic now.

Word has it that Fox is rebooting Daredevil with a story that continues after the last one (yes I know how that sounds)in an attempt to keep the franchise from reverting back to Marvel.

Disney must have enough money to block this from happening in some way. If the next Xmen movie fails, then there should be a "do no harm" clause in the contracts where you can't continually ruin a franchise just to maintain control over it. Same goes fro Spiderman. Either do it right with respect for the original property or give it back.

I don't really care if it's illegal or not. As an artist myself, I feel people create entertainment to entertain and to share a creative part of themselves, not to make money. As soon as you make something for the sole purpose of making money, it ceases to become art. That is why I have no qualms with downloading music, movies, or games, because I know the artists, directors, and programmers wanted to share their creative spirit with the world; their ideas with whomever cares to appreciate them. If I can't afford it, I download it. If I can afford, I still download it, but regardless, I sing it's praises (hence, the "Rate the last ___" threads) and I feel that is a payment in and of itself.

That's just me though.

IDK im back to being interested in Spider-man. Marc Web is too good of a director, and Andrew Garfield is too good of an actor for this to not turn out decent. I heard rumors months back of them taking liberties and moving Daredevil to the UK and having Jason Statham play him, which sounds awesome to me, though I think they're just rumors.

If that was true, the damn SAG and WGA wouldn't be striking or threatening to strike every time their deals expire and they demand more and more money. With the big studios, it's about making money. While I am sure many want the works to be good, they create them with the intention of making money. They don't want people stealing their work since it is a business. Would you still be willing to go to your job if your boss decided to stop paying you for it? They create art, consumers pay for it. That is capitalism, and none of the people who create the art would agree with you at all and they would probably hate you for it because you are stealing from them.

I find it funny that Universal Pictures is claiming they are rebooting the Doom franchise too. How can you reboot a film "franchise" when it only has 1 movie?

Here's a perfect example that you have no idea what you're talking about. A few years back, Radiohead released an album called "In Rainbows". They "...like the people at our record company, but the time is at hand when you have to ask why anyone needs one. And, yes, it probably would give us some perverse pleasure to say '**** you' to this decaying business model."

So what did they do? They released the album online and asked people to name their own price. And it "... worked on many levels, including financially."

So yeah...This

And "Would you still be willing to go to your job if your boss decided to stop paying you for it?" Depends on what my job is. If I'm picking up horse **** twice a day then I'd be pissed. If I'm testing roller coasters, then I would wonder why I had been paid at all.

Radiohead was an exception, not the rule.

As for your second one, your argument is full of it. It doesn't matter how much fun your job is, fun doesn't pay the bills. What happens when you need to buy food, or gas, or rent, or any other expense? Justify it however you want, but your actions are what is wrong with so many people now. I can't condone you stealing from people who actually put in the effort to create the art.

I'm not going argue with you that money is in fact needed to do most anything and enjoy a lot, but the fact you are forgetting is that people who make art, make it to be enjoyed first -- making money is always second.

Radiohead was an exception, not the rule.

It's been working just great for Nine Inch Nails' last three albums as well. The difference is that NIN didn't let customers name their own price. Trent Reznor gave everything away for free to download, with the option to purchase a physical copy. Not only was it given away for free, but NIN has made their music open. They've licensed it under the Creative Commons and actually encourage fans to create remixes with the provided multitracks.

Real artists create because they have to, not because they want to. They don't do it to get rich. Anyone that says otherwise is selling something.

Your syntax is wrong. Giving it away for free and letting people enjoy it for free, are completely different things.

I don't know of any painter, who truly loves their craft, who would just give their paintings away for free or for any amount of money for that matter. But I'm sure they'd love for you to appreciate its subtleties up close.

I've been drawing a lot of portraits lately, mainly for friends. To some extant its in hopes that people will see my body of work and I can start charging strangers to have me draw their portrait. However, it feels great to be appreciated. I showed one friend his portrait and he was elated, and he got kinda giddy. He was like "we need to make a copy", I say "funny you should mention that", pull out his copy, then he's like "this needs to be framed" I showed another friend the next day and she was like "you're crazy!".......looks around trying to recover from utter meaness, "um but in a good way..." The other thing is I hate giving away original work, its kinda screwed up to give someone a photocopy though(depending on the quality of the photocopy), I would rather draw a whole other picture than give away an original.


also, keep in mind in 40 years when we all have robot slaves doing our menial work, the only real thing you can do is work on art, or keep yourself entertained.

There's nothing wrong in being commissioned to make art. That's just how the world works. But like I said, if we lived in a perfect world, artists wouldn't have to rely on such commissions and instead take that time to hone their craft. Luckily, both can still happen in this world. Take Leonardo Da Vinci, for example. Still, the problem with that is it festers and becomes something akin to the music industry now, where the sole purpose of making music isn't to make music, but to sell music.

In my view, the subclass of amateur musicians who make music with no expectation of major financial success is larger than ever, given the ubiquity of powerful and fairly cheap music technology. The internet is chock full of musicians who care only about the craft. I think that's awesome, but I also think it's not morally superior or inferior to trying to sell your music. The only thing that I consider "immoral", in an artistic sense, is deliberately changing your music in order to make it sell better. Which obviously happens a lot, but there is boatloads of music that isn't doing that.

Post by: Ian Sane on March 16, 2011, 05:26:22 PM
I'm a film maker and a song writer.  I can honestly say that I've so far done it for the love of it because I have made essentially no money whatsoever in either endeavour.  But the thing is art costs money to make.  The instruments, the amps, the camera, the computer used to edit the films and record the music - all of that stuff is expensive.  Time is also valuable.  I have to squeeze my artistic pursuits into my free time.

I have to work a full-time job to pay the bills, pay the mortgage, and buy food.  In order to be an artist full time I would have to be able to make a living on it.  It's just the simple logistics of it.  I can do it for free but then I can't do it full time.  It's one or the other.  Right now it remains a hobby because that's the only way I can make it work.

That's why something like Radiohead's example is ridiculous.  Radiohead were already successful wealthy artists prior to releasing In Rainbows.  It's very easy for independently wealthy people to afford to give away something like that for free.  When Radiohead was starting out there is no way they could have been able to afford the studio time, equipment, manufacturing, distribution, and their own personal time spent working on it.  For a regular average person this just is not a possibility.
 
You're only a sellout if you're making art that you have to passion for at all.  To me that's doesn't mean making a slight change for commercial purposes.  Compromises are part of life.  What that means is that you don't care for it at all in any way.  You can make something to sell while still finding joy in creating it.  When the joy isn't there, then you might as well be on an assembly line.

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on March 16, 2011, 06:00:26 PM
You produce art because you love to do it. You make money from that art because other people enjoy it too.

A Painter paints because they have a vision or feeling they need to express.
They then sell that art because someone else is willing to pay for it. It doesn't necessarily mean they created that art with the sole intention of selling it to the highest bidder. Alot of that happens after the artist is no longer able to see any profits (dead).

A real musician would create music off of an inspiration and feeling or a message that they want to share. They produce that music straight from their heart. They want that music to be enjoyed by as many as possible. If they could give it away and perform it for free, they would, but it ain't cheap to set up a concert or press and distribute 8trac/Vinyl/tapes/cd's etc. and a business was born.
Now making music is business first for most of the stuff you hear and that is the problem with todays music, it's not born from  heart solely for the love of music, it was written and processed by someone hired to study todays trends and crank out something that will appeal to the masses and make all involved a ton of money.
By musicians giving it out for free over the internet, where there is no overhead for packaging and distribution, and letting you decide what it is worth to you, then they are taking all the hands out of their pockets that turned music away from being an art form into a cold cash business.

I hope tha tall makes sense because I didn't really proof read or anything

I'm just going to take the time to lay my position out flat, in simple terms, for all to understand.

Why do I not feel as if enjoying copyrighted material for free is morally wrong? That is the question that basically started this fueled debate. I don't think it's morally wrong or right. I feel like it is inevitable and that all art will one day be easy to access, free, and for all to enjoy, from the poorest of people to the wealthiest. Why do I think it is inevitable? Because of what art is. It is inherently worthwhile, no matter how terrible or wonderful. It is an expression, as significant as a heralded speech, but as common as this post. It sets us free little by little depicting views and opinions, life, the real, the imaginary, the very fabric of who we are, and as a race, what we have become. Stifling such a influential part of our world by labeling it with procedures, restricting it's viewers, and ultimately taking the very essence of what made it pure all in the name of money will have a drastic effect on the art and on our overall wellbeing.

I understand we are not there yet and acting like we are is seen as immoral. But so be it.

For a regular average person this just is not a possibility.

I wish there was an article to back me up, but my intuition tells me that the cost to release your own album has plummeted and is soon to be negligible.

Well you should; music especially. To sell something is inherent of trying to get a return on investment. That's business and there should be none of that as far as art is concerned. Instead, I think artists who are looking for something in return, should go about it as if they are trading their music. Let the user browse their music, listen to it, and then if they want to own it, allow them a means to purchase it. And that's what most subclass artists do.

But the fact is, I was talking about paintings; something you can't readily make a copy of. Selling the original is a definitely morally inferior.

Well that is true and my band is recording our debut album right now at my house.  But as I mentioned, time it a major factor.  We're squeezing this in on weekends and we pretty much have to shut off our social lives for the time being to get it done.  If any of us were married or had kids it probably just couldn't do it.  My brother would like to make another film but three members of his cast had kids shortly after wrapping up filming.  So now his "free" actors are not available and he would have to pay to get strangers to work with him.

If you are willing to make yourself look retarded with the intelligence of a little kid (i.e. double rainbow guy), it's quite easy. Most of the famous people on YouTube (the majority of which I think are stupid and not funny) get that way for making themselves look like idiots.

Darren Aronofsky has announced that he will no longer be directing The Wolverine. He said the reason is that the schedule would have kept him out of the country for almost a year and he did not want to be away from his family for that long. He said he loved the script and was looking forward to working with Hugh Jackman.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief, as NBC has renewed Community and Parks and Recreation for next season. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/nbc-renews-community-parks-and-recreation-and-the,53324/?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=feeds&utm_source=avclub_rss_daily) The best comedies on television get another chance to attract an audience that's been too ignorant to find them so far.

Post by: TJ Spyke on March 17, 2011, 08:03:17 PM
Meh, I never got into Community and I hate Parks and Recreation. Good for the fans of those shows though. I think we all know that Community probably only keeps getting renewed because NBC doesn't have great ratings in general anymore. The show's ratings are not that good, and if the show was on CBS or FOX it probably would have got canceled already. It's the same way that CBS will cancel a show that gets 10 million viewers, while The CW's best show only gets like 4 million viewers (so they would kill to have one of their shows get 10 million viewers). It's a good example of what channel a show airs on having an effect on whether it gets renewed or not.

Hooray for renewed Parks & Rec!  It seems that these days if I like a TV comedy there is always the fear of cancellation hanging in the background.  It is like mainstream TV tastes are so far removed from my tastes that if I like something I can almost assume that hardly anyone else is watching it.  It didn't used to be that way as I was never worried about Seinfeld or The Simpsons being canned and those shows are still funny to me.

I no longer fear The Office being cancelled but that show is just not as good anymore.  It's like when a show is truly funny, no one watches it, but if it finds an audience it becomes cliche and generic.  It's probably the networks coming to the conclusion that now that the audience is there the jokes have to be broader to keep that audience and they'll point to the earlier funnier seasons as "proof".  "See, when the show had clever gags no one was watching but as we've dumbed it down the ratings get better and better!"  Of course the real reason is probably that word of mouth over several seasons allows a show to build an audience.

I'll blame reality shows.  They are the ideal scapegoat for all of TV's problems.

I watch plenty of network shows, including: Glee, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, Bob's Burgers, The Big Bang Theory, Hell's Kitchen, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, sometimes NCIS. I also watch a lot of shows that used to be network shows before being canceled. NBC has canceled a lot of great shows that were good (one of my favorites being My Name is Earl, which ended on a cliffhanger).

Kevin Costner has signed on to play Jonathan Kent (Superman's adopted human father) in the new Zack Snyder Superman movie.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Ian Sane on March 18, 2011, 05:51:17 PM
Costner seems too young to me to play that role.  In the original film the Kents were already pretty old when they found Superman.  His father's death of heart attack is a pretty key scene.  Costner is younger than my dad so for his age to work he would have found Superman when he was under 40.  That just doesn't fit to me.  The Kents seem like they should be past child bearing age and thus adopt Superman as their only son.  Costner would actually fit better as Jor-El.

Though I'm not very familiar with the details of the comic so maybe this is more accurate?

I'm not sure why I'm bothering to open this can of disagreement, but I'm very glad to hear that not only is there an X4, but that it follows the events of X3.

Like every X-Men fan out there, it was hard for me to accept the deaths of some of the X-Men, but X4 and 5, could possibly be the vindication of those deaths. I've always been of the opinion that a movie or T.V show can alter its source material as long as it doesn't damage the over-arching story (though it's still a little tough for me to watch True Blood despite the fact that it meets those requirements) so I'm interested to see what the X-Men universe looks like without Cyclops. Jean and Xavier might come back (Xavier for sure) and there could be some interesting storylines yet to get from this particular iteration of the XMen universe.

I don't mind there being an X4. After the blow out the series took with X3 along with the evolution of the comic-to-film genre these last few years I think it could turn out very well. Plus I'm kinda getting tired of studios jumping the gun with reboots (Hulk, Spiderman...) One little hiccup in the series should not force a reboot and I feel these constant 'remakes' are allowing hollywood to cop out int he creative department and recycle the same crap to us over and over.

As for X5...I'll wait and see how X4 turns out before giving that a second glance.

My only hope is that Nightcrawler makes a return.

I really really wish Disney would renegotiate those contracts Marvel handed out so that there has to be a legitimate sequel with major theater release over certain periods of time (no more than 3 years between releases) and all stories must be continuous (in other words: No Reboots)

This will force the studios to either build a popular and successful franchise with the Marvel properties or give them back so that value of the property doesn't get run into the ground and damaged beyond repair.

I know it might be too expensive to outright buy the rights back, but they have to be able to atleast re-negotiate since Marvel is now a Disney studio.... you think that might have some sort of influence over the term & conditions of previous contracts.

I think there should be reboots allowed, what about like Ultimate Spider-man, or the X-Men in Cable's universe, or an alternate take on the Avengers. I think the movies should be like the comics with confusing alternate storylines and multiple origin and death stories.

Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on March 30, 2011, 11:30:04 AM
Reboots are fine when the property has been re-licensed, but for a single studio to license and then run a series into the ground, reboot it and then run it into the ground again and then reboot it again only to run it into the ground again is damaging to the license and they should just give it back to the owner if they have no meaningful ideas on films they want to do with the property and/or don't have the time and money to devote to making it good.

Marvel has to protect it's properties and X3, Wolverine, Spider3 and GhostRider where not doing it any favors. They can't even have any cross overs at this point thanks to the greedy milking of their top franchises at this point. and I'm talking about how they wanted Spiderman for The Avengers movie or how they can't make a Wolverine vs The Hulk.

I think part of the problem is that the pants don't fit tight enough. It should be like a second skin on her.

The other problem is that it should be some hot shorts. Show off those legs.

Also why are her wrist shields silver if everything else is gold? She is a woman and would accessorize better than that.

That is also a bad pic with her having a horrible look on her face in the middle of a half-ass run. Wonder Woman never half-asses anything and she always look beautiful while doing it.

MTV's Teen Wolf

p.s. Has nothing to do with the Teen Wolf we all fondly remember from the 80's
But I honestly don't think it looks that bad ::ducks rocks being thrown::

It kinda looks like the Werewolf version of The Vampire Diaries, which is fine because everyone else jumped on the Vampire train already, so somebody has go to cover the other side of Twilight and support team Jacob right?

Just to clarify (not that I really feel the need to defend myself, but whatever) I don't watch The Vampire Diaries, I just know that it is The CW's highest rated primetime show. I also don't watch MTV and HATE the Twilight movies (my sister is a huge fan though with her team Edward doll and twilight poster on the wall).

But regarding the TV show trailer, it didn't look b-movie bad and likely fits in perfectly with the demo they are aiming for; Twilight fans that were pro-wolf as everyone else has been on a Vampire high (True Blood, Being Human, countless vamp movies and other vamp TV shows all springing up over the last 5-6 years) as hardly anyone has covered werewolves* which I'm sure there are now plenty of tween fans of.

It's obviously an angsty Teen drama that is more Vampire Diaries than 80's Teen Wolf updated for 2011, but just looking at it for what it is, it doesn't look that bad. It could look alot worse, like a SyFy or Hallmark channel movie.

*the two shows I listed actually do cover werewolves, but True Blood is a vampire show. Being Human covers Vamps, Weres and Ghost.


edit: I thought I should point out that I didn't post that video here because I thought we should all tune in for MTV's Teen Wolf, just thought we should all be aware that MTV is reviving the Teen Wolf name with something that is actually more The Werewolf Diaries than a 2011 Teen Wolf made for TV.

So I'm watching CNN last night and one of the blurbs on the bottom of the screens says that Phil Collins daughter has been cast to play Snow White. So this morning I go on CNN.com to check it out, and they mention that the movie is coming out in June of 2012, and that there is another Snow White movie, with an entirely different cast coming out December of 2012 WTF? :confused; ?

I've mentioned before that I don't mind reboots and remakes, but two separate movies of the same story being made in the same year? That seems a little extreme.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1735898/ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1735898/)
That one is Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart as Snow and Charlize Theron as the evil queen.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1667353/ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1667353/)
This one is The Brothers Grimm: Snow White starring Lilly Collins as Snow and Julia Roberts as the evil queen.

Right off the bat I'm more interested in the 'Brothers Grimm' version as their stories are much more adult (Nintendo adult, not God of War adult) than the Disney adaptations, and while I am a fan of Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts is that chick, and I'm not much for Kristen Stewart.

I'm asking because it's streaming on Netflix and want to know if It's something everyone can watch or not.

ummm...not sure. I watched it in german, and its kinda out there. Theres one racist joke, which is less racist in the english dub and in the subtitles. Its the type of movie where when the evil queen asks the mirror what he thinks of snow white he pretty much says if he was out of the mirror he would try to bang her.

I was gonna post that the other day, but I got distracted while looking for a things we should avoid thread.

It's supposed to start with a cartoon that eventually leads to a movie and Arnold is voicing himself.
It sounds horrible on all accounts. I also meant to post it in the T.V thread.

Falling Skies:
http://www.tnt.tv/series/fallingskies/about/?contentId=73986 (http://www.tnt.tv/series/fallingskies/about/?contentId=73986)

A new Sci-Fi show with some heavy names behind it!

Quote
FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force.

At the center of the series is Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. His wife was killed in the initial attack, and one of his three sons has been captured. Determined to get his son back and to ensure the safety of his other two sons, Tom must put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as one of the leaders of the resistance movement known as the 2nd Mass, because of their location in Boston, Mass. They are constantly trying to gain intelligence about the aliens in order to one day outsmart and overtake them and hopefully rebuild their lives.

Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic upheaval in their lives. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT's Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. The series also stars Drew Roy (Secretariat) as Hal, Tom's oldest son and a growing fighter in the resistance movement; Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom's youngest son; Connor Jessup (The Saddle Club) as Ben, Tom's son who was captured by aliens; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps Anne in the group's makeshift medical clinic. Colin Cunningham (Living in Your Car) is John Pope, the leader of an outlaw motorcycle gang and Sarah Carter (Shark) is Margaret, a wary survivor of Pope's gang.

FALLING SKIES focuses on the resilience of the survivors and their determination to maintain their humanity when all else has been destroyed. It is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. They may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. Most of all, the series is about the ties that bind people together in the most difficult of circumstances.

The aliens in the series are mighty, mysterious and merciless. They are highly intelligent and use military-like tactics, which makes them an overwhelming force against the 2nd Mass. There are two types of aliens that the human survivors have named Skitters and Mechs. Combining live action and special visual effects, the Skitters have spider-like bodies and incredible strength and agility. The deadly, robotic Mechs stand upright and can shoot bullets from their arms. The aliens control captured children, like Tom's son Ben, through bio-mechanical harnesses but have yet to reveal their ultimate plan for them.

FALLING SKIES is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, along with DreamWorks Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, Graham Yost (Justified, The Pacific) and screenwriter Robert Rodat. Rodat, who earned an Oscar® nomination for his screenplay for Saving Private Ryan, wrote the pilot from an idea he co-conceived with Spielberg. Mark Verheiden (Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) and Greg Beeman (Heroes, Smallville) are co-executive producers. The pilot was directed by Carl Franklin (One False Move, Out of Time).

The Immortals (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1253864/)
Release Date: 11/11/11/
Rated R
Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VdONYkKFmQ)

Quote
Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king's hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man's conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion...until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes...

I've been meaning to see the Director's past film "The Fall" for the cinematography alone. Has anyone else seen it?

Yes, I'm one of the unique few that enjoyed Transformers 2 immensely.  I just went to see giant robots beating each other up and that is exactly what I got. That forest fight was awe-inspiring. 
That is also the only reason I intend to see number 3.

I'm going to see 3 eventually, but I'm not paying for it - that's for damn sure.

While that forest scene was pretty awesome, that rest of it film felt like I was being laughed at. Like Steven Spielberg somewhere was laughing at me while trading quips with illustrious Hollywood execs about 'shoveling **** into my eyes' and 'fucking my wallet'.

Never again.

That looks unreal. I don't like the visual style, but it looks promising otherwise. If Captain Haddock doesn't swear up a proper storm and if they remove the casual racism found in that era, I am going to be disappointed. It's part of that era and it's a reminder of where we came from. Besides, some of that **** was funny.

Sometimes it's accurate.

How 'bout that Terra Nova show? Also could be called "Avatar 66MYA" because it's the same guy playing the general. I've only seen two dinosaurs in the trailers: Brachiosaurus and Carnotaurus. Now, the latter is my FAVORITE dinosaur of all time. However, I'm disappointed that they're just pulling dinosaurs from every continent and era. If you're going to land in a specific time, you're going to deal with a very specific faunal makeup, sorry.

The Late Jurassic Morrison formation (where Brachiosaurus lives) would've been great. Where Carnotaurus is from? Not so much. There aren't as many dinosaurs there.

And as my friend Matt Wedel said on his blog, he bets money that there will be "others" encroching on the human settlement, some unknown dino-like humanoid creature, or maybe Sleestacks. The thing that REALLY makes me cringe is that they're actually going to make some of their dinosaurs up: some kind of super-raptor called an "Acceleraptor." God, just use Deinonychus!

CG is basically modern stop motion.

Except CG always looks fake. At least your stop-motion armatures actually exist in some capacity. They reflect and absorb light properly, are limited to a certain ranges of motions, and generally obey the laws of physics. CG on the other never looks quite right, whether it's because it's shiny and plastic looking or is moving in an unnatural manner. No one does CG because it's better, they do it because it's cheaper and easier. If you applied today's techniques to traditional effects, you'd be amazed at just what I movie could be. CG should only be used to touch up and improve upon existing effects, not supplant them entirely.

Post by: Stogi on June 05, 2011, 10:42:23 PM
I agree with this to a point. As I mentioned elsewhere, The Thing SFX were awesome still to this day. I can't say that for many movies (LOTR is the only one I can think of at the moment).

That said, because it is cheaper and easier we have seen way more action-adventure, fantasy and sci-fi movies; genres that I like. So it's a give and take. Most new movies simply couldn't be done without CG. Inception is a perfect example (though I didn't like that movie).

The CG effects on Battlestar Galactica look 1,000 times better than any physical model I've ever seen. I may not be a reliable source for this, having never seen a spaceship in real life, but they look damned realistic to me.

Sure, but there are plenty of VALID species that are known to science already. It would be like making up a new eight-horned ceratopsian when you could use the fifteen-horned ceratopsian they found last year (Kosmoceratops).

Boondocks Season 4 is coming soon
I still haven't watched s3 (It's on my watch list), but this is good news.
http://s2smagazine.com/stories/2011/06/boondocks-returning-season-4 (http://s2smagazine.com/stories/2011/06/boondocks-returning-season-4)
Quote
Despite what you may have heard, John Witherspoon said "The Boondocks" will be returning for a fourth season!

Before season 3 of "The Boondocks" aired on Adult Swim, there were notices that it would be the cartoon's swan song. And with over-the-top episodes like "The Booty Warrior" and "Pause", which lampooned Tyler Perry, it seemed that show creator, Aaron McGruder, was taking no prisoners since he presumably wasn't coming back.

John Witherspoon, who voices Granddad, was under the same impression.

"They was telling me all the time, for the last six months, that it's not coming back," the comedian said in a recent interview with Huntsville's Hot 103.5. "I talked to Aaron McGruder the other day; it's coming back."

And, according to John, the new season will be bigger and better than ever before. "They're going to do 20 shows this time instead of 15," he revealed.

John's excited to get back in the booth to bring Granddad back to life because of the awesome compensation he got in comparison to the amount of work he actually did.

"I wanted to come back," John admitted. "I was missing that money. That money is good. Easy money!"

and in related news, There might be a Friday 4...
Quote
John could also be earning a few stacks from a possible fourth installment in the Friday franchise. How likely is it to happen? Find out below! [video at link above]

They better bring back Smokey or just don't bother.

The thing that REALLY makes me cringe is that they're actually going to make some of their dinosaurs up: some kind of super-raptor called an "Acceleraptor." God, just use Deinonychus!

It's going to be either a massive flop or a huge hit: Stargate Universe was one of the most expensive TV shows on-air at the time at $2 million per episode. To see why see the CGI effects, the primary cast of 10 and the gorgeous set.

Terra Nova is TWICE that in the budget, so Fox will be asking for some stupidly high ratings to justify that spend. Anything less and its a massive flop.

The more I see about Horrible Bosses, the more interested I am. The trailers look good and make it seem really funny (though I know that doesn't really mean anything) and it has an amazing cast: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis (he's been in some real shitty stuff, but I've seen enough of him on SNL to know he's got talent), Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Aniston. I don't see many movies in theaters, but I'm definitely going to get some friends together to go see this.

Cars is more merchandise friendly, there are so many cars 2 toys (http://hubpages.com/hub/Cars_2_toys). which is probably why we'll see a third iteration sooner or later.  My son loves it.
Pixar seems to be on a cycle of staggering their original releases with sequels.  After Brave, I believe that thI think a sequel to Monsters Inc is in the works as well...it's going to be called Monsters University.  Their other announced original project, Newt, was shelved because of similarities to Rio.

It doesn't take much for that especially when the awesome Kung Fu Panda 2 came out around the same time.

Pixar seems to have lost something recently.  I think it's a comibination of Dreamworks picking up their game with Panda and How to Train your Dragon and Pixar's sudden decision to make a bunch of sequels.  They apparently already have a prequel/sequel in the works for Monsters Inc. which I just think is a bad idea and Monsters is my favorite Pixar movie.

Brave looks great though.

I read that Cars made the most money for Pixar thanks to merchandise.  I don't really see why since Cars toys technically should have tons of competition because they're just, well.. cars.  There should be tons of other car toys out there unless Hot Wheels went bankrupt. There should also be Transformer toys out the ass since there was even a cartoon before the admittedly not as kid friendly movies.  When I was kid if you gave me a car with eyes instead of a car that transformed into a robot I would have been very disappointed.

Dreamworks is making a new movie called Me and My Shadow that combines 2d animation and 3d animation.  In the movie someone's shadow breaks the rules to always follow and takes control.  Apparently the real world is all 3d animation while the shadows and the shadow world is all 2d.  It sounds like a great idea.

Toy car collectors are a different beast.  I didn't know how different till I tried my hand at it.  In Hot Wheel alone you have 2 types of cards, Cars could have 3 variety of tires, 2 different paint jobs, Treasure cards, etc...  All of these just sort of randomly alotted so you have to hunt them down.  Their are events for collectors where it is literally winning the rights to root through an unopenned box of Hot Wheels first.  It must be a sealed box to or their will be problems. 

The Cars toys have a distinct style etc. that allows them to command a higher price why still being made the same way cars have been forever.  Its very easy to see how.  My Step-Mother-In-Law got some for my Youngest Brother and she liked them enough that she went on to start collecting them... They have to have over 100 Car Cars now.

They are a multi-billion dollar franchise thanks to toys. they will likely get a Cars 3 also at some point (and before an Incredibles 2).

Supposedly Toy Story 4 is also in the works.

Origin stories are boring enough the first time around. Instead of rebooting every single franchise the moment it has a slip-up, Hollywood should really take responsibility and move forward. Change the actors, change the directors, disregard the established canon, but don't outright restart!

I'm inclined to believe that if Sam Raimi can't make a good Spider-Man film, then no one can. :P

Um, I am pretty sure that was confirmed awhile ago, and it was what was rumored since almost the beginning as well. So I am disappointed that the rumors were true, there was no reason for it other than Sony having no ideas and just making it so they can keep the Spider-Man film franchise.

That's what I liked about The Incredible Hulk - it wasn't a reboot but more of a sequel, even though it wasn't exactly one. More people saw that one than Hulk and they just used the opening credits to give the origin story instead of wasting everyone's time. Spider-Man's origin is a little bit more complicated than Hulk, but still, just about everyone and their brother saw the 2002 Spider-Man film.

Spider-Man's origin story summed up: High school kid gets bit by radioactive spider while on field trip, develops ability to climb on services (whether he naturally creates the webbing or invents it and puts it in web shooters varies), uses the extra strength to become wrestler until he lets a robber go who then kills his grandfather, he decides to become a superhero after that. Obviously you know that, so it is a little more complicated but they could sum it up in like 5 minutes tops.

i thought Spider-Man 2 was incredible, and Spider-man one and 3 were mediocre, although Spider-man one was much better than 3. I suspect it depends on your take of Spider-man. I was actually a big fan of the franchise growing up, unlike other comic book franchises, so i know it pretty well. On the other hand Im pretty aware as a screen writer movies as a medium have to be adapted a certain way otherwise it won't work. I think Raimi did a pretty good job of the series. It could have been 1000 times worse. People are over critical. It takes a lot of work to bring something like Spider-man to the screen and not make it look like a sloppy piece of ****.

I'm actually pretty pleased with the way this new Spider-man looks. It kinda reminds me of the 90s Spider-Man cartoon.

For one, he had no accent. To me, his voice from the Fox show is the voice of him (the same way Mark Hamil will always be THE voice of Joker and Kevin Conroy will always be Batman, any other voice for those two just sound wrong for some reason). I also think they should have adapted him more closely to how he had been on that show.

Post by: ThePerm on July 24, 2011, 04:58:26 PM
Oh, well thats frickin ridiculous. Is this a cartoon? Is this the 1960s? No, it was a movie. Its not even established that Doc. Ock is German other than his name is Otto. In the comics he's from Schenectady, New York. The only instance that I know where Doc Ock has a German accent is the 90s Spiderman tv show. To be honest thats sort of a stupid cartoon thing to do, give everyone thick foreign accents just to help foster the long established Xenophobia. Thats the thing about adaptations, they are just that. The cartoon is in no way cannon. Hank Azaria voiced Eddie Brock in the Tv show, and he would have made a 100 times better Venom than Topher Grace, but wasn't going to happen.

 Hank Azaria also voice Apu and Moe on the Simpsons. Am i going to expect Sony to keep a character really cheesey? If they had had your way
Dr. Octopus would be played by Elton John....dubbed by the voice actor, and wear and orange and green plastic power rangers suit. Instead they made him a realistic character. Apparently Spider-man has the opposite problem as the Schumacher batman movies to the cartoon ratio

Wow, I can't believe how NONE of you are talking about the Legend of Korra trailer. I know we have some Last Airbender fans here, despite the atrocious movie..

Here it is again if you haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXriwMQBNSQ

Several things I noticed from watching the trailer:

1. Really modern. They have electricity, huge cities and street lights. It's supposedly been 70 years after the previous events and 16 years after Aang died (that's an awesome statue of him by the way). I can't believe how fast the Avatar world evolved. It's as if the first series took place in late 19th century and this is starting in the middle of the 20th.

2. The show easily has a higher budget than the last series, in animation alone. It's fluid and fast, far more saturated and more detailed than before. It looks like a top quality anime movie, something akin to the Cowboy Bebop Movie. That's amazing considering this is at least a 12 episode mini-series.

3. Other than bending water in the opening scene, Korra only bends fire during the entire trailer. Does she know air or earth?

4. There are people who attack Korra who can bend metal. At first I thought those guys who chase her through the streets and attack her from the roof were using some sort of rope gun or something, but if you look closely, they are metal. So are they cops or enemies? Either way it's great that Toph taught a few people her tricks.

5. The choreography is amazing. True to Airbender fame, the fighting looks awesome. Best of all though, Korra seems to have her own style of fighting. It's far more aggressive than Aang's. She breaks wrists, has little disregard of near-by property, and tries to kick people's heads off.

6. We finally get to see her Animal Companion. Just like Aang had Appa, she has a Polar Bear/ Wolf Mix. I was hoping it would be a giant penguin/ polar bear hybrid, so she could traverse underwater, but whatever, it looks great. I just hope it has as much personality as Appa, who cracked me up on more than one occasion.

7. And lastly, we get to see the main enemy. He looks bad ass. The mask is a great touch. Supposedly, he is the leader of an Anti-Bender revolution. I don't know what that means exactly, but I hope they use the power of Spirit-Bending to rip peoples ability to bend away from them; just as Aang did to Ozai at the climax of the first series. That could be a great plot and also entice a great amount of fear in the Avatar world.

Your thoughts?
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: UltimatePartyBear on July 25, 2011, 07:20:39 PM
1. I wonder if the four nations are still separate.  I was trying to figure out which one that city belongs to, and I think it must be in the Fire Nation.  It's the most likely to have electricity and airships, not to mention coastal cities with big mountains.

2. It looks about on par with the important fight scenes of the original series to me.  It's hard to say what non-action scenes will look like since a trailer is obviously going to focus on action.  That ship near the start was just moving in a nice, cheap, straight line, though.

3. If she's following the proper procedures, she'd have to know earth before fire, right?  Isn't it water, earth, fire, then air?  I'm guessing the story is set during her fire training.  It would explain all the firebending action, and storywise, it would be her most trying time as Avatar, fire being water's opposite and all.  More potential for her to be an underdog that way.

4. I'm not seeing the metal.  If it is, that could be a real world weapon called an urumi.

5. Ayup.  Though I think Aang would have busted up property, too, if he'd had the animation budget for it.

6. I'm surprised it isn't something that can fly.  Two of the Avatars we knew of had flying animals.  A swimmer could have made sense, too.  Maybe an albatross-orca.  ;D  This is a glorified horse, not that there was ever a shortage of such things in Avatar land.

7. Might be cool if under that mask, he's someone we'd recognize.  Or their son, rather, given the time that's passed.

After seeing the awesome episode of Justice League Unlimited that focused on him, I am a fan of Booster Gold.
That is an awesome episode in an awesome series but, My Personal Favorite is the one with the Flash when he's getting a statue.
 
I should watch Avatar but the voice acting and something else of it that I saw turned me off.

Ceric: I think the voice acting is superb; especially for Uncle Iroh and Sokka.

UPB: I just read the Wiki and I suggest you read it too - http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/The_Last_Airbender:_Legend_of_Korra

It tells us a lot like that the city is called United Republic and is a conglomeration of each tribe that Zoku and Aang built. Also, I was right about the metal bending ;).

Btw, I suggest you watch the trailer again at 1/4 speed at 720p (you need to opt for the HTML5 trial by going to youtube.com/html5). It's amazing. But I"d skip to 42 seconds.

Korra will consist of two seasons. Season 1 is 12 episodes, Season 2 is 14.
 
Korra mastered water, earth, and fire prior to the show. She'll be learning airbending from Tenzin, Aang and Katara kid. Tenzin has three kids of his own. He's getting up there in years, probbaly around 50.
 
Aang had three kids, Tenzin being the youngest.
 
And that thing she's riding is a POLAR BEAR dog. I'm going to assume it can swim. Her name is Naga.
 
Any more questions? I just back from the Korra panel and I'm back in Washington.
 There's a five part video on Youtube of the complete panel if you want to watch it.

As a big fan of Avatar I am hyped for this.

I heard them describe the city as something like 1920s Shanghai (think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom).  I wasn't expecting the more modern world at all and I'm not sure how I feel about it.  The pictures are really helping me warm up to the idea though.  I wonder exactly what they mean by it though because Shanghai at the time was a lot different for a regular Chinese person than some white foreigner who was living there.  I assume its some kind of an idealistic version but its hard for me to think of when they say Shanghai at that time.

I'm disappointed that they gave up the name Avatar and the awesome Chinese shield characters that said the name.  I guess they are following the terrible, terrible movie's lead in order not to be confused with James Cameron's Avatar but I still wish they could have kept the original name.  It makes far more sense since the main character is the Avatar and there are apparently multiple airbenders now (Ang's son and his kids).

I really love that they made a new series and had the balls to get rid of the original cast after their story was over.  It always seems like the creators of a show have a great idea like this and then the suits step in and tell them to keep the original characters or screw off.

Did they say anything about Korra's personality Oblivion?  Judging by the element she uses and how she fights it seems like she'll be a lot different from Aang. (I can't watch youtube)
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Oblivion on July 25, 2011, 10:15:40 PM
Actually, I'm fairly certain Tenzin is the only airbender now. Aang's two other kids aren't airbenders. They weren't clear what nationality they are, however. I'm gonna take a wild guess and say one is a waterbender and the other is a non-bender.

And the creators were interviewed last year saying that her personality is in a sense the opposite of Aang's. She's fiery and headstrong. She has a good sense of humor, apparently.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: SixthAngel on July 25, 2011, 10:50:20 PM
I didn't mean Aang's other kids.  I read that Tenzin's kids were airbenders.

Good to hear about Korra being different.  I didn't want an Aang 2 and it will be interesting to see how she deals with what appears to be very different problems.

Sixth: I'm pretty sure they were talking about the music. Track team, the sound track producers, said to expect the music to be as if 1920's jazz was found in Shanghai.

Oblivion: Appartently Tenzin's children are all airbenders.

While I'm happy to see a new Avatar series on TV in the near future (and that trailer was excellent, despite them using music from the 3rd season of the first series), I'm still a little wary of this series.  The original concept was designed for a short miniseries, and for a miniseries the story was fine.  But now it's expanded out into 26 episodes over 2 seasons, and I'm a little concerned there's not enough of a story here to be compelling for that long.  Part of what made the first Avatar series so cool was watching Aang slowly master the elements as the year went on and the comet approached for the final showdown.  But in this series, Korra already knows 3 of the 4 elements, so for all intents and purposes there's really nothing in the show that should even be able to touch her (especially since she knows Earthbending, which seems the most ridiculously powerful of the 4 bending styles judging by Toph).  Where's the drama in a bending battle going to come from?  And I didn't see any sign in the trailer that she had companions that traveled with her that gives the writers personalities to bounce off of her.

This series is coming from a very good pedigree, but I'm a little nervous that the concept they've revealed may be a bit too limited for essentially a 2-year show.  And yeah, this show should proudly bear the "Avatar" title like its predecessor.  The TV series had the name first, and it's not Nickelodeon's problem that James Cameron decided to remake Dances with Wolves with Smurfs and take the Avatar name as well.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Oblivion on July 26, 2011, 10:28:21 AM
There's at least going to be Mako and Bolin. They're brothers who can bend fire and earth, respectively. And last year it was said that Meelo, Tenzin's son, will be joining them too.

And the story they had from the beginning is still there. The show was originally 12 episodes, which is considered "season 1". I read/heard somewhere that we'll get two different stories for each season, and that they should be viewed as two different mini-series about Korra, each with their own villian.

So we'll see how this all turns out later. I mean, seeing as this won't be out til the end of 2012, we have no idea how the final product will turn out. Production of the first season started back in March so yeah.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Stogi on July 26, 2011, 01:38:49 PM
She will also interact with Toph's daughter, who is the Chief of a specialized Metal-Bending unit in the Police force.

The show is suppose to start with her trying to learn Air-Bending from Tenzin, Aang and Katara's young son. So we'll see how that turns out. There is also a possibility that she does not know the finer details of the bending orders. She probably doesn't know how to produce lightning, blood-bend, or metal-bend. She damn sure doesn't know how to fly or glide like Aang.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: Oblivion on July 26, 2011, 02:18:51 PM
Perhaps she will once she gets better at airbending. I mean, Aang already mastered airbending before the first show even started.

The animation wasn't 100% bad, but it was just cheaply made. On the other hand the art style was awesome. Theres a fine line between having good animation and having good art, very rarely do things have both. I just am sometimes put off by sliding still frames on scrolling backgrounds, where only the mouth moves. It is a pilot so the animation could improve.

Improv-a-Ganza not renewed? That's lame. I started watching it a few days ago and it's generally pretty humorous. It's essentially just a tweaked version of the American Whose Line Is It Anyway. I don't think it's overall better, but it's enjoyable if you're already a fan of the previous show. I'm glad that Greg Proops and Jeff Davis are getting so much air time on it as well, since they were both favorites of mine on Whose Line... I can't help but not like that John Mangum guy very much though. It seems like his slot could have been better server by others.

Technically it wasn't canceled (basically it was), GSN just won't be ordering new episodes. Networks do this so they don't lose the rights to a show. I don't get GSN, so I couldn't watch it, but the show apparently wasn't getting great ratings.

The problem with the show is that it was on GSN to begin with.  Seriously, I only randomly found out about it a week ago.  Who the heck watches GSN regularly that isn't a blue-haired old lady anyway?

I used to watch Game Show Network all the time. Back when it launched, it was great. The problem was that they started focusing more and more on original programming and they've stopped replaying most of the classic game shows they started with.

I guess it's because I was watching a lot of older shows at the time as well. From MASH to I Dream of Jeannie or the Andy Griffith show. The funny thing was watching these older shows, I then recognized most of the celebrities on them. It all tied together so well.  Heck, I'm a huge fan of older movies and watch way more movies made before say 1975 then I do of movies made after. Cinema today. Ugh.

The fall of the GSN is disappointing. That was a channel I could put on anytime of the day and I had no problem watching it. I loved the old 1950's/1960's panel/discussion game shows like To Tell the Truth or I've Got a Secret. It's funny how the revival's/reboots of those shows can never live up to the original productions. You don't think it would be that hard to recreate a show like that but they just don't work. I also saw the episode of To Tell The Truth with Frank Abernagle Jr of the bio-pic Catch Me If You Can. This was a year or two after that movie so it was this awesome find to just tune in and catch that episode. Catch Me If You Can even starts out with this To Tell The Truth appearance. And if you're interested, Frank was able to walk away with the full prize as the whole panel were unable to correctly identify him.

But the one program I watched everyday was Match Game. They still play it early morning because I think it was a pretty big draw for the network. That show was hilarious. If you've never seen it, I highly recommend you start watching it. The 74-77 years were probably the best but you can still get a lot of fun out of the other seasons.

Yes sir, the GSN was a big part of my High School years. Which is why it's current stat is such a tragedy. I have a feeling that it will probably just up and disappear soon. They need to start paying for the rights and bringing back the Mark Goodson production games shows. Those are the best. The Price is Right. Password. Family Feud. I know they still make it but there's something special to the old Richard Dawson hosted Feud.

The other thing they should acquire the rights for is The Gong Show. Every once in awhile, they would suddenly spring a few episodes of it on the air. Do a special marathon one day and then never show them again for months. They only seemed to have a certain few because they would replay them but they were worth watching every time.

Anyways, this is supposed to be about new shows but thinking about the GSN always gets me talking on my favorite genre of T.V. The Game Show.

The first episode, he said, could focus on Buster Bluth, the deeply neurotic brother played by Tony Hale. “The latest joke we have,” Mr. Hurwitz said, “is that it’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, and there’s all these scientists in lab coats and they’re waiting for somebody. Buster comes through the door in a white lab coat – ‘Let’s begin’ – and they say, ‘Oh, no, you don’t get to wear the lab coat. We’re experimenting on you.’”

I am against having Tony Jaa in any movie. He had a really good first movie, but he just doesn't cut it. The man has no acting ability. He makes Keanu look like Oscar gold. Jackie Chan can actually act and speak more lines than "WHERE IS MY ELEPHANT". Jackie is positively Shakespearean compare to him.

Jet Li was something of a missed opportunity, but I rather enjoyed the comedy coming from him. What was criminally wrong about the Expendables was the shitastic camera work and ADHD editing. When will filmmakers learn that quake cam and quick cuts are no substitute for good basic movie making.

Chow Yuen Fat would make a good addition if they give him a lot of guns and have give speak only in Cantonese. His english is worse than Jet Li. Liam Neeson would qualify at this point if he wasn't doing **** like Battleship.

Stuff like the jailbait section (where people post things like kids in bikinis, you could probably Googlw it and find more info). When news organizations asked why they allowed it, they gave a BS argument about the first amendment not allowing them (which is false, they have the right to remove any content on their site they want).

Post by: NWR_insanolord on November 02, 2011, 03:48:01 AM
They shut down r/jailbait. And it wasn't that they couldn't because of the first amendment, it was that they didn't want to set a precedent of censorship.

reddit is just a place where people post links and people vote on links, its all user created content. Unfortunately, the problem with user created content is creep created content.

They brought the section back after about a week (and they only took it down after someone posted an actual nude photo). And I think there is a difference between censorship and taste. I don't think too many people would be mad at Reddit for removing a picture of a 12 year old girl who is half nude.

Taste is subjective. Using your own idea of it to stop people from posting things that aren't illegal is censorship. They erred on the side of freedom. Defending the indefensible, and the like.

They wouldn't be breaking the law by taking down the pictures. A lot of things are subjective. For example, even the law basically says that what is considered porn is subjective.

They would be completely within their rights to take them down, but that doesn't make it any less censorship. They stood up for freedom of speech as an ideal, not just to the letter of the law.

you know I took a German class entirely on German Fairy tales, we ended up watching lots of old east German films. The East German Red Riding hood is hilarious because the grandma is sniffing ****, which i guess is tobacco but you know she's talking to a random kid in a rabbit suit.

yeah i took all the handouts from the class and hole punched and braded them into a story book, we had to do our own short for the class which was pretty entertaining. We did some Pinocchio/Dr. Jerkyll Mrs. hyde thng. I only have the first half on youtube, otherwise i would have to cut out the music. I should have went all public domain music. I was originally going to do a cloverfield thing, but that was going to cost more. It took place during a costume party and everyone would have to wear costumes, then i would have to animate in a monster. Then again, it would be hilarious if we just got a guy in a suit and put him in a green screen with a bunch of miniture buildings...again cost.

actually fair does mean pale, as racist as that sounds in the language, im really fair skinned, and I have to stay the **** away from the sun because I don't want melanoma. I was looking at my arms the other day and I was looking at the blue veins and I was like goddamn im transparent.  In German its "schöneste", which just means beautiful. But Snow White is supposed to be white as snow. I think she i supposed to have rosy red cheeks though(because the mom pricked her fingers and dripped blood in the snow). She's paler though then the last girl to play snow white that I remember. This chick.

It's funny you mention that. Every time I go to comicon I see Zack the first black ranger and that black girl the second yellow ranger. Both are working on web series type things and/or music videos. It's just sometimes after certain roles people wont take you seriously for other things. Which scares me cause i'd love to be a power ranger.

Still though i'm if they are still continuing their acting they are successful in their own rights.

Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: ThePerm on November 19, 2011, 05:33:01 PM
id be willing to go with the Shitty agent things, I looked up what was going on with the power rangers after the question popped up, and the second Yellow Ranger, she just did an indie pic, which is good to hear, but yeah I can see somewhat not being taken seriously. However, I'd like to see comebacks across the board. Joseph Gordon Levitt just did it, he wasn't a power ranger, but he had a similar disappearance. The thing that brings it up is the ex-Power Rangers are all the right age to be action stars. 30s to late 40s. Some of them are great martial artists, and I like martial arts and thus I would love to see lots of kickass martial arts action films.

Note: Second Black Ranger is the voice of Ichigo on Bleach, I haven't ever watched Bleach in English, so Ill have to check it out.

Speaking of Power Rangers, I would love to see a modern day re-imagining. There are new power ranger shows all the time, but they fucking just copy the old series. Power Rangers are people in Exo-suits that have giant dinosaur robots that fight Kaiju, and if you were to reinterpret that with todays awesomeness then you get Iron Man fighting cloverfield and jumping into a big badass mecha.

The Cabin in the Woods
http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810035105/video

Producer: Joss Whedon
Director: Drew Goddard
Starring: Chris "Thor" Hemsworth
Quote
In this twisted thriller from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, five friends arrive at a secluded cabin with clear instructions for their anticipated mountain getaway. But when the rigid rules are broken, punishment is swift -- and everyone will pay. Kristen Connolly, Jesse Williams, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Chris Hemsworth and Brian J. White star with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford in this surprising spin on a classic horror setup.

Looks interesting, and I love me some horror movies.
And it would be nice to see what Whedon and Thor were doing before I go see The Avengers.

The trailer actually got me a little hyped for it too. There is also another special appearance at the end.

Too bad it looks like almost everyone from the first movie is dead, I kinda enjoyed the first movie for what it was. A slightly larger than life domestic terror movie based on a COMIC BOOK and childrens cartoon that was a fun watch.
The sequel looks to be more of the same [but better]. A Popcorn wartime action blockbuster.


edit: :( also looks like no Cobra Commander this time around which also means no JGL
although I could've sworn I saw him in the trailer....

It's old news that a sequel is coming, it was announced awhile ago. There IS news about it today though, it looks like WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter (who was heavily involved in the franchise in the 1980s) will have a cameo in the movie.

Hi, I'm Troy Mclure.  You may rember me from such movies as The Contrabulous Fabtraption of Professor Horatio Hufnagel and The Greatest Story Ever Hula-ed.




On a side note, is anybody else watching American Horror Story?  I'm liking it and it is one of the few shows where I really have no idea what is going to happen next.

I'm just wondering if they are gonna stick to the game plan and have a new family next season, or are they gonna Heroes it and run this one into the ground?

You should spoiler that.  I had no idea what the game plan was.  While after I saw a recent development it came to mind I don't want to be privy to the actual plans for the seasons before I see the episodes.

Considering ghost baby they could be around for a while.  I guess they could just kill that family and have the horrible neighbor raise the baby though.

sorry. I edited the post.
But I didn't really think of it as a spoiler as I have no idea what they are gonna do at the end of this season or anytime during the next.

But considering that no family has escaped that house alive (so far), they could have a new family in the house next season and the current family too (along with all the past peoples that have died in that house.)

But this show is a little twisted. I like it.
Can't believe it's by the same guy that did Glee. complete opposite ends of the scale.

yeah, the very idea of a gi-joe movie is fucking stupid.......but I started to dig the trailer whenever they started playing "7 nation army" and there were a lot of ninjas.

as far as American Horror Story goes
because its made by the makers of Nip/Tuck its going to get more depraved as the show goes on, and while I think its obvious their probably going to kill the whole family. I think the wife goes as least, and the father moves next door with Constance and they raise their anti-christ grandchild/not anti christ child, or some crazy ****, really unpredictable, and then a new family moves in and it gets weirder

It sounded like you read that in an interview with the creators or something.  No worries.

AHS
I think that either the Dad or the Mom is going to go to jail for killing Violet or stuffed back in the loony bin.  The cops aren't exactly going to believe she committed suicide when her body is stuffed under the floorboards. 

I like how jarring it is.  The first episode had so many interactions that were just purposely off and made to make you fell uncomfortable.  The intro does a great job of portraying it.  Awesome intro.

In one moment you think you understand some things and the next they pull it away or at times purposely lie to you. The burned guy originally said he killed his family.

Tate I don't know what to think of him.  In one episode he seems innocent like he doesn't know anything and in the next he is raping somebody or killing them.  We now know that he always knew he was dead and I get the feeling that he is pretending not to remember blowing away kids at school.  We still don't even know why he did that.  He really is crazy in the sense that you have no idea what he going to do at any given time.

And of course Constance is a glorious bitch.

idk i was expecting something better, maybe I watched to many Saddam Hussein documentaries. There was this really good British Miniseries about Saddam's Son in Law called Saddam's Tribe. I think that was it, there's another one i guess. Then recently the Devil's Double. The Dictator is supposed to be based off of Saddam's novel, which is really a metaphor between relations between Iraq and the international world.

Is anybody else going to see this movie?
It's looking pretty good from what I've heard and it's going to be one of the few movies given a world wide release that I can actually catch before most people.
It's also the most expensive Chinese movie ever made (I imagine Bale's salary took a hefty chunk of it).  Is it getting a release near you?  Bale is such a big name right now I figure that him being the lead is going to give it a lot of international attention.

A small warning: Due to the subject matter prepare to either be depressed or bawling once it ends.

It's a shame that there are currently only three 90-minute episodes because the show is really fun. The next series/season airs in 2012.01 and will be another three 90-minute episodes. Ah, I've been waiting for so long for the second series/season.

I just received my copy of the H.P Lovecraft Historical Society's adaption of The Whisperer in Darkness (http://www.cthulhulives.org/store/storeDetailPages/whisperer-dvd.html)! I've been following the production for quite a while now... years in fact. I intend to watch it later this evening, but am fully expecting to be blown away. Hell, even Sandy Petersen helped out with the production. Their previous offering, an adaptation of The Call of Cthulhu (http://www.cthulhulives.org/store/storeDetailPages/coc-dvd.html), was easily the most compelling proof to date that there is indeed a way to bring Lovecraft's work to cinematic life.

I'd suggest everyone go check out both films. They're definitely worth the purchase, and go to support truly independent cinema. Otherwise, I do believe that The Call of Cthulhu is available on NetFlix. I imagine that The Whisperer in Darkness will follow in time. Just keep in mind that both films are shot as strict period pieces, so Cthulhu is actually a shorter silent film. Whisperer on the other hand is more in the style of a 1930s Universal Studios horror film, like King Kong or Frankenstein.

Also, for those interested... The HPLHS has a plethora of cool stuff in their online store. Included amongst it is a two CD set of so-called Solstice Carols. Mythos inspired parodies of those dreadful Christmas tunes you all know and hate. If anything could actually make the holidays fun, those are it! :)

lol did we watch the same trailer? Its kinda sad. Nolan makes movies I would make if i had a big studio behind me. Whats going on in the TDKR is kinda like a plot I was writing, except it solves all the problems I have developing the story. Ever seen Apocalypse Now? This is what happens if Kurts leaves the jungle and blows up a city...except there's Batman in it. Throw in some darth vader/phantom of the opera.

did you see the 6 minute prologue? The trailer seems that much better if you've seen the prologue.

Also yeha, the first part of batman begins is awesome. Your not getting a regular batman movie, your getting this epic movie that shows a journey across the world. Without it you would be stuck in this micro-world of gotham only. This world is so much bigger than your typical batman movie, or comic for that matter. IDK, I was always a fan of Ras Al Ghul in the animated series, and some of my favorite episodes were the training he got from traveling with Talia.

Even though scarecrow as a character gets to have a 3 movie story arch throughout the series. IDK i think they treat Crane pretty well. They got his look down as well. Scary as **** really. I don't want to see a movie with Jim Carrey's Riddler with a burlap bag on his head. Thats what it would be otherwise. I kinda expect him to be in the new movie a lot, but only in interior location scenes.

Batman Begins was easily Nolan's worst film. The main problem of the film was not focusing on the Scarecrow. The entire theme of the film is fear. The fear that Batman causes in his enemies and uses as a weapon. The fear that Bruce himself has concerning his past and future. The Scarecrow fits into that perfectly, but barely had more than a handful of scenes. Instead we get was some laughable plot about a cult of ninjas trying to take over the world. Yawn.

Thankfully we got a much, much better film out of The Dark Knight. I'm very interested to see how Nolan wraps it all up, even if this recent trailer was about as boring as could be. I'm kind of hoping to see the trilogy end with Bane breaking the Bat. ;)

Post by: ThePerm on December 20, 2011, 09:19:21 PM
you know if you watch The dark Knight Joker has barely any screen time. Its probably about 17 minutes of a 152 minute movie. His scenes are pretty big though.

I don't get the "theres not enough scarecrow" logic. Scarecrow is a minor villain. He's not a very detailed character, he's a mad psychiatrist who dresses like a scarecrow and uses fear gas. Thats it. Can you develop much of a movie around that? Most animated series episodes dont spend much time developing his character either, its usually just batman sneaking around where his hq is. 

I mean its not like he has some big origins story. What do you want him to run around and say like catchphrases about hay, and have minions that dress like the scarecrow from wizard of oz? He's pretty 1 dimensional. What they did do with him is much more interesting. He's scary as ****. He has some decent airtime as crane. I don't think scarecrow is going to run around all scooby doo in a scarecrow costume 24/7.

He uses his gimmick when its appropriate:When he's scaring the **** out of people with fear gas. Even when he's not wearing the mask he's at Dr. Herbert West levels of creepiness. Still, Ras Al ghul is a bigger threat and he's more interesting.

the prologue is pretty well down right now, it was up a couple of days ago, but i dont see it around anymore. Its pretty epic.

I edited my post before I finished posting because it was creepier, but I didn't start the topic of Anne Hathaway's breasts; that was Oohboy. I'm just inserting some scientifically informed analysis into the discussion. The feminine cycle just becomes another factor in mammary size. Her BMI is the second factor.  Her age is another.

Hell, I remember years ago when people cared it was Britney Spears boobs that were in question, and this was before her massive weight fluctuations.  If I do remember correctly didn't Oohboy also start the Hawtness thread?

Also, if you would re-read my post, I didn't offer that as the sole explanation, just a strong possibility. I definitely considered the other more obvious listed factors. Key words: "chances are"

Breasts may change SIZE during ovulation, but not shape. This is a case of a difference in body fat composition. In fact, in most women, breast size INCREASES with age (look at Salma Hayek, Susan Sarandon, Marissa Miller, I could go on) but when there's significant weight loss (or gain) breast shape and size change pretty radically. Anne Hathaway is older now, but she's clearly lost weight during the time between Brokeback and Love & Other Drugs. I wonder if she's gained any of it back for Dark Knight Rises.

One can only hope. Because chesty or not, that girl is fine.

Yeah, she did sound very catwoman like in the trailer. There were other girls trying out for the role, but I think the thing she did different was the hyper sexy voice. What she was saying was very class warfare income inequality type stuff, though some would like to point this follows current trends, this is a theme heavily in batman begins as well. Falcone pretty much says the same thing. This movie seems more like a sequel to batman begins then a sequel to the dark knight, which is actually a good way to go because thats hat they did with the dark knight. Also, if you were considering this acts in a play then this is very third act in a much bigger picture.

But the Marvel films are largely based on those since they all have to be more modern anyway. I always thought of the Ultimate Universe was more of a way to make the characters younger, more relatable and for the writers to not have to tip toe around such convoluted continuities.

What do you think of DC's reboot?

I'm not racist, I just don't want them changing the race of characters.

Did the race of the character change the character in any way other than skin color?
Did finding an actor to fit the part that just so happened to be black ruin the movie for you?

Do you have a problem with either Michael Clark Duncan or Samuel L. Jackson?
Because I think they both did a great job with the roles they've been given.
 
It's not like they took main characters that are very well known like Spiderman or Wolverine and made such a change because that would be wierd, but they made such a relatively minor change with a secondary character that was portrayed that way in the comics to begin with, so really I don't see the problem other than you don't like the source material they borrowed from.

Would you like it if they took a black character or Asian character and made them white? I think the only reason they didn't get bigger reactions is because they were minor character. I think it's obvious there would be much bigger backlash if they tried making someone like Superman or Batman black (I remember the outcry when DC was just planning to change Superman's costume). What if they wanted to re-make Shaft, but have him be white?

Didn't I just say that they did it with secondary characters and that it would be wierd if they did it with a well known main character? especially one that had never been portrayed that way in the source material?

And Shaft wouldn't be Shaft if he was white. The entire series is a blacksploitation. If you change it to a white character it would become a parody and like Donald Glover already pointed out, it would probably be hilarious.

So you guys heard about the multitude of Avatar: the Legend of Korra leaks right? Well, I was there as they were leaked by the leaker.

 The leaker has a twitter account:

http://www.twitter.com/TheKorraLegend

 And he tweeted that he was gonna leak the clips and pics on his friends forum. So, I asked him a couple questions, which he retweeted, and finally I joined that forum and we all waited for the leaks.

 As soon as the leaks hit me and about twenty others from ASN go batshit crazy. We're downloading them, discussing them in that forum and ASN's forum, and finally it spread through tumblr, YouTube, and the Internet itself like wildfire.

 Fun times.

 So yeah, if you don't know what leaked clips I'm talking about, go to that twitter and see all the clips. If you don't feel like signing up at that site just google it and you'll find it. :)


Or, if you'd rather watch all the leaked clips in one video, here it is:

I am sick of studios trying to get minority viewers by making white characters black (i.e. Kingpin and Nick Fury).

I think this is the assumption that is putting people off. It's cynical and perhaps a bit offensive to assume that these black actors got their parts because of "studios trying to get minority viewers" rather than the merits of those actors.


And maybe the fact that the vast majority of comic book characters were originally white says more about the creators of those comics (or the era they lived in) than using some minority actors to portray them says about modern filmmakers.

I'm going to have to Say I prefer Nick Fury being white because he's so much kick ass in a way you would normally associate with a black character that the sheer oddity and coolness of it made me like the character more.  Now I do enjoy Black Lex Luthor much more than traditional White Lex Luthor.  I think who plays the Kingpin in the Daredevil movie fits the character to the T.

If the character is the same, aka they don't change the backstory to coincide with the new skin, I tend to be ok with it.

Well he decided to bring the Munster back and is working on a Pilot for the show.
I'm very curious to see if that ever sees broadcast.


p.s. Brian Fuller (Pushing Daisies) is also involved

From writer-executive producer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Heroes"), THE MUNSTERS is an imaginative reinvention of "The Munsters" as a visually spectacular one-hour drama from Universal Television. Bryan Singer ("X-Men: First Class," "House") is the director of the pilot and an executive producer; John Wirth ("Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles") also is an executive producer.

Iron Sky is one of a new wave of productions, including Artemis Eternal, The Cosmonaut, A Swarm of Angels and RiP!: A Remix Manifesto, produced in collaboration with an on-line community of film enthusiasts, that are creating a new kind of participatory cinema. At Wreck-a-Movie, a collaborative film-making web site, the producers have invited everyone interested in "chipping in" with their ideas and creativity to read the tasks given to the community and to take a shot (write an entry).

There might have been. It's been in development for several years and has seen the release of quite a few teasers and test trailers.

I saw the trailer for The Borrowers preceding The Muppets a few months back. It looks really good, though the name change doesn't seem to be for the best. I can only assume it was to avoid confusion with the late 90's live-action film.

I didn't care for Sam Raimi's execution of Spider-Man at all... and I'm a pretty big Raimi fan. I wasn't so much bothered by the nit-picky things, like natural web cartridges. It was mostly a reliance on bad CGI and subpar casting that killed it for me. Of course, by the time the third film came around, it had just gotten convoluted and bloated.

Is a Spider-Man reboot the solution? Hell no. You could continue onward without directly acknowledging the previous efforts if that's what you want. Let's not run through the entire boring origin again, though. I don't need to know James Bond's origin every time they switch actors... and I certainly don't need to know Spider/Super/Bat/Whomever-man's origins every few years. These characters are so ingrained into the public consciousness that it's ridiculous to think the story needs to be told over and over again... let alone be the focus of an entire film.

For those who like Community (I honestly don't know why), I am happy for you. If it was on any of the other broadcast networks, it would have been canceled by now because of its low ratings (it finished 115th in the 2010-2011 season), but NBC can't afford to cancel shows just because of low ratings. It's the main reason Chuck lasted as long as it did.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: NWR_insanolord on February 24, 2012, 08:11:13 PM
Community would have been canceled long ago with the ratings it has even on NBC if it weren't as critically acclaimed as it is. It also does really well, as in being in the top ten, for some important demographics. It has a cult following, and NBC knows exactly what they're going to get in terms of ratings/Hulu/iTunes/DVD sales. It seems almost likely at this point that NBC will give it a fourth season, taking it to its logical conclusion.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: TJ Spyke on February 24, 2012, 08:21:31 PM
The show is helped by the fact that NBC partially owns it (through Universal Television), otherwise stuff lie DVD sales wouldn't matter to them. Say Warner Bros. owned the show, only Warner would profit from DVD sales and stuff.

I hate when they go by demographics, I know why they do but I hate it. A show can do well in the ratings but still get canceled if not enough people in the target demographic watch it (I won't get into the flawed nature of ratings anyways, with only 25,000 households being used to determine what 131 million households are watching).

Community is very experimental, almost nothing is off limits if it's funny. It doesn't always work, but most importantly, it isn't afraid to fail, learning along the way. Big Bang was initially new through targeting the Nerd demographics laced with enough general popculture for the mainstream, but it quickly fell into it's own formula eating it's way into boredom.

Community's only formula is it must be funny.

The Big Bang Theory is nerd blackface. All the episodes I've seen devolved into "look at how weird these guys are" without any kind of wit or cleverness to the writing. It also uses a laugh track, which is pretty unforgivable on modern TV. I watched through all of NewsRadio again recently, which is brilliantly written but the laugh track drags it down a bit. It was barely okay when that show was on the air, it's just a terrible creative decision now.

It's a false statement, but sure. It basically boils down to this:
*Community is somewhat liked by critics and watched by very few people (it averaged 4.2 million last year)
*Big Bang Theory is loves by critics and is one of the most watched shows on TV (averaging 16 million viewers)

I am not saying Community is a bad show, but there is a reason BBT is loved. It's funny, well written, and does tons of fan service.

The part about the show being all about "look how weird these crazy nerds are" is the part that makes it nerd blackface. I'm not against poking fun at groups of people, but there needs to be creativity and substance to it, which I've never seen BBT do. I'll fully admit I haven't seen anywhere near all the episodes of the show, so maybe I missed something there, but based on what I've seen there's pretty much nothing redeeming about it.

If you think Big Bang Theory is liked by critics at anywhere near the same level as Community you're just not paying attention. I'm not saying critical acclaim automatically makes a show good, but Community clearly has way more of it than Big Bang Theory.

CBS is the Activision of the television world. Every company is out for money, but different companies have different standards for how much artistic quality they're willing to sacrifice in order to get that money. CBS, like Activision, doesn't give a **** about quality, and will ride any successful brand into the ground (Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, CSI, NCIS). Call of Duty sets new sales records every year, and CBS is perennially the best-rated network on TV, so some people are obviously okay with that, but I don't like it.

Who are these "experts" that they consult? BBT is horse ****, btw. Watch it without the laughtrack added in, it's just awkward.

I think Community sucks too, but I gave up on it after like 3 or 4 episodes.

That's true of most any laugh track show. Laugh tracks are an awful thing to use on television. And give Community another shot, Brandogg. If you can watch Modern Warfare and still not like it, then there's no hope for you.

You may not like the show, but it is a very good show (if it's ****, then EVERY show is ****). One of the funniest shows on TV, easily better than most.

Their main technical expert is Dr. David Saltzberg, a astroparticle physicist at UCLA. He also worked for CERN from 1995-1997. He checks every script for technical errors, even makes sure the equations on whiteboards are correct. One of the stars of the show now (she joined last season) is Mayim Bialik, who actually has a PhD in neuroscience.

I think the show gets hate for the same reason ones like Frasier did, it's a smart show that doesn't aim all of their jokes at the lowest class.

This times a thousand. If you want a good geek-themed show, definitely check that out. It's on Netflix Instant.

it's a smart show that doesn't aim all of their jokes at the lowest class.

I think you're watching a different show, because that's exactly what The Big Bang Theory, and every comedy on CBS, does. That's why they get the ratings they do. It's not a smart show in the slightest; it's a lowest-common-denominator comedy dressed up in nerd culture.

Sorry, I didn't realize you were talking about science experts, I thought you were talking about "nerd experts." Who cares if they use experts to make sure the math equations are correct (they could just use a textbook, too), lots of shows do that.

There are three good comedy shows on TV - The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Conan. The end.

I watch the show every week. Once in a while they make those kind of jokes (mainly by Howard), but the majority are not.

I quickly lost interest in Conan, Office sucks (both US and UK versions), and I don't like the style of Parks.

I would argue 8 myself. Community, Parks & Rec and 30 Rock on NBC; Always Sunny, Archer and Louie on FX; Futurama, which isn't what it used to be but is still pretty good; and The Life and Times of Tim on HBO, which TJ Spyke would really hate because it once managed to get a 0.0 on the Nielsen ratings. Conan's a different kind of show, so I wouldn't count that in this.

I watched a couple episodes of Life and Times, I liked it but have too many shows to watch as it is.

Getting 0.0 rating is impressive because even 0.1 is only about 100K viewers.

Let's not forget Modern Family and Happy Endings--great shows, the latter of which doesn't seem to have a big viewership. My wife and I tried to watch the IT Crowd but hated it after three episodes. It felt incredibly broad (I've said this before) and none of the characters are likable.

Alan Gregory was funny, but it's cancelled now, so...hmmm. Watch it if it hits DVD.

There is not an ounce of believability or truth in Big Bang Theory. None. The characters that populate that show are shallow caricatures that only serve the purpose to be pointed at and laughed at. Note the difference between believability/truth and realism. Community is not a realistic show at all, but I believe in those characters. They are real human beings. There is no such thing on BBT.

Which would all be fine if it was funny, but it's not. Who the **** cares if they have some scientist they consult? They have no love for nerd culture, and it shows with every easy nerd joke they make. JP is right, BBT employs extremely lazy writing. (I would say lowest common denominator, but that designation is saved for Chuck Lorre's two other shows, Two and a Half Men and Mike and Molly. Good GOD.) And what about ambition? Big Bang Theory has none while Community is arguably the most ambitious television comedy ever this side of Spaced.

In ten years, no one's going to remember Big Bang Theory. Community will still have fans.

LOL, suuuuuuure. Community is a niche show that will be remembered only by the most hardcore fans. BBT will be remembered as one of the best sitcoms on TV. It's funny seeing so much hate, since you are clearly in the minority on the show. It's fine, it's  a great show that is really entertaining and without a doubt is one of the funniest shows on TV.

Actually, the posts so far seem to indicate that you are in the minority... at least here on the forum. Current widespread appeal doesn't really mean much for future recognition. You have to play it safe and slow to reach the masses. that kind of attitude isn't usually going to garner long term distinction.

I worry more about the tone of your posts here. Maybe it's just the wording, but it almost comes across as though you're trying to convince yourself that it's a good show, not us. It's almost as if you're saying "everyone likes it, so I have to as well... right?". :P

I meant you guys here are in the overall minority. Most people love BBT, so it's a statistical anomaly to see so many of the haters in one place.

I love the show and have since I started watching in the middle of season 1. It's just shocking to see such a great show get hated on, and more specifically the claims that it's not a funny show or that the writing is bad. I am fine with someone not liking a show because they are not into it, but I can't disagree more with the reasons stated by some here (and apparently I got a few smites because of it).

Community is the next Arrested Development. It gets **** ratings, but will do well in the long run on DVD sales and be remembered as a cult hit. The Big Bang Theory would be forgotten if not for the fact that it will be rerun on TBS for the rest of time.

I sort of have to go with TJ on this one.

I enjoy the show.  I don't think it would really work if there was an ounce of believability in it because you would easy start to feel pity for them.

Besides here I can't think of anyone who dislikes the show.

Community on the other hand I haven't really found any of the random episodes I've seen to be enough for me to want to make it a point to see more.  They are somewhat amusing, but I found them slow.  It helps the one lady is nice looking at times.  I'm going to make it a point to go watch more of it after finish Enterprise and Breaking Bad.

I will say BBT only has 1 ok season left in it unless something really shakes up.  I have no doubt that Community will gain cult status.   Nothing Cult Status all most by definition has a large following with a few notable exceptions.

I don't understand how someone could call Community slow, especially compared to a laugh track show. The main reason laugh tracks are awful is they break up and slow down a show. Maybe compared to something like 30 Rock it's slow, but against basically anything else it's a ridiculous criticism.

Tonight Show is better than Late Show.  Local news vs. Daily Show is not really fair comparison. Local news is actual news and centered around local news stories (of course), Daily Show is about national stories and is mostly comedic look at them.

And no one is saying ratings are the only factor. But like Ceric, here is pretty much the only place I have seen people that don't like BBT.

This is of course little more than anecdotal evidence, but I don't personally know of a single person that enjoys Big Bang Theory. In contrast, I hear nothing but praise and excitement concerning Community.

For me, Big Bang Theory at best just feels hokey and formulaic. It doesn't even try to distinguish itself from any other sitcom. That is, of course, why it's popular though. It doesn't need to be different, apparently. Most people don't want different, whether it be television, film, music, food, whatever.

On the other hand, I watch Community and am consistently amused. It's generally witty, fast-paced, and often outright surreal. It has a formula as well, but it's aware of it and openly mocks it. It's the only sitcom I watch, actually. I generally just don't like the genre, so I think it speaks volumes in Community's favor that I look forward to each episode.

Watch what you want. It's just sad to see Community struggle when it has absolutely everything going in its favor.

I wouldn't hate on Big Bang Theory so much if it weren't in the same time slot as Community and cleaning up while Community struggles. Normally I don't give a **** if people want to watch awful television because they're not hurting anyone, but when a truly amazing show is on the brink of cancellation going up against an uninspired, formulaic show like that it makes me mad.

Community was struggling even before BBT moved from Mondays to Thursdays, the only thing that changed was that now it's losing to BBT (and X Factor/American Idol) rather than Survivor. Pretty much the only way the show would do better in ratings is maybe move it to Friday (where the ratings are so bad that even Univision sometimes beats network shows in ratings).

I find the Office slow as well if that makes a difference on that account.  Its very possible I just have ran into bad episodes.

I also don't like art films.
I don't care for romances most of the time.
Anything labelled Powerful I more than likely should not watch.
Drama's not much my cup of tea.

I'm not big on shows that are fairly unstructured.  I want to have a rough idea what I'm getting into when I watch. I don't want to have to wonder if a thread is ever going to get resolved.

Do you realise how big those X Factor/American Idol/reality BS shows are? They create nasty rating deserts around them. It's a amazing Community survived next to that. BBT won't be that show that takes Community down. It will be some bean counting suit that can't look up from his spreadsheet that kills Community.

Community has a strong chronological element to it for a comedy. Watching random episodes mean some of it gets lost since there is actual character development strangely enough giving it's a lot more structure and rewards for whose see it front to end dispite the chaos of each individual episode. It's order from chaos.

Use the characters as an anchor rather than looking for a formula to settle in. They change, but not so drastically to the point they become different people each season. The underlying character remains, but the super structure changes and warps with the reality of each episode.

BBT does almost as well in the ratings as American Idol is. It averages 16 million viewers a show this season (more than four times as many as Community). Shows that may be liked or loved by critics but do poorly in the ratings can only last so long before they get canceled. If NBC wasn't in the shape it is in, there is no way they would have renewed the show after it finished 97th in season 1 with 5 million viewers a episode, dropping to 115th with 4.48 million viewers a episode in season 2, and is now doing less than 4 million a episode this season. The show just keeps losing viewers.

Then I say thank god NBC's in shambles enough that they feel it's a good move to keep quality television on the air instead of pandering to the lowest common denominator. NBC has three fantastic comedies on Thursday night (plus The Office, which I've never been a big fan of but a lot of people like), and I can't remember the last time I watched something on CBS that wasn't football. Ratings mean nothing in terms of quality, and whatever it takes for NBC to keep doing what they're doing, I'm happy.

Televised singing / dancing / talent contests are not reality shows.


Would you call Deal or No Deal, Wheel of Fortune, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Jeopardy, The Price is Right, etc. reality shows?


Shows like Jersey Shore, Cake Boss, Hogan Knows Best, COPS, etc. are reality shows. In fact, I consider COPS to be the first true reality show, since it's real police officers on pursuit of real criminals, with a few cameramen filming the footage.


And I'd even go so far as to call America's Funniest Videos a reality show, since it's all about user-submitted tapes.

BBT does that as well ironically.  Which is fine as long as its the norm.  If I go into an episode and there is something for the long term fans to notice, but is self contained own thing I'm ok with that.  That's actually a hallmark of a traditional American produced Cartoon compared to a Traditional Japanese produced Cartoon which is very order driven.  If a show has a strong continuity where you be easily lost if you don't start from the beginning then doing the oddball episode here and there is ok, but ultimately I think its just a ticking time bomb for a Comedy.  It doesn't give the writers enough room to stay funny without starting to muddle there own show.

Good examples of this is "30 Rock".  That show was funny, but its so trapped in its characters now that it has no where to go.  It should have been cancelled 2 seasons ago.  "Better of Ted" another good example, while I recommend everyone watches that show at least once because it is funny if it hadn't gotten cancelled despite enjoying it I would say it had 1 season left into it.

Since I'm on the tangent now anyways, lets look at what could arguably be considered the most successful series ever, Law and Order.  The Franchise has ran a long time and successfully spun off numerous times because its core formula was solid.  Crime, Investigation, and Court.  The characters where just a vehicle to hit those point.  People could and did move in and out with no real effect what-so-ever on the show itself.  That's a good, but hard concept.


From piecing together what I'm hearing in this thread Community really needs to be watched from start to finish in order, but has just as many episodes thrown in that our offshoots at that point of the continuity.

The Spoiler stuff is what I originally wrote for the interested.  I thought it had some points, but was off-topic.

NBC is in shambles right now. The AV Club posted an article recently about how NBC's ratings were tied with that of Univision. I didn't even know what network Univision was before reading the article. It doesn't matter what they're airing, people are avoiding NBC like rancid dog poop. Meanwhile, CBS is doing so good that the fucking Rob Schneider sitcom is getting 12 million viewers a week, (trouncing the also solid Parks and Rec in the same timeslot) and I don't hear ANYONE arguing that that is any good.

Before writing off the quality of CBS as a whole, I have heard from people I trust and critics that The Good Wife is one of the best shows on TV right now, it just has a terribly unappealing title. Like, I've heard serious comparisons to The Wire and Breaking Bad. I haven't seen it, can anyone confirm/deny?

You may like How I Met Your Mother.  Its on Netflix.  I would watch whats on there.  Last season and this one are not that good.  Though when it first came out I just caught episodes to ogle Alyson Hannigan.

Agree.  That's why the last 2 seasons haven't been that great.  Everyone stories are really wrapped up and there just stalling.  They should have had him meet her 2 seasons ago and been dating at this point.

Yeah, the times are starting to get out of whack too. At the beginning of the show, the kids could've been Ted's. But now, that's looking to be impossible.

The characters and the actors themselves are way better on HIMTMHM. There's no laugh track though, so you won't know when to laugh? Ha, ha? or Ha haha ha? You just have to improvise and deal with it as it comes.

HIMYM is pretty good(Better than BBT), but I am somewhat soured on the premise and I wish they get it over with already, which includes ending the series. I find Ted an extremely unlikable whiney douchbag with "problems" I wish I have. Barney Stinson (NPH) might be a womanizing, seemingly amoral, sleazy bastard, but he is our magnificent bastard. It helps that NPH is gay, affable and is parodying himself.

I ogle Alyson Hannigan, but I ogle Cobie Smulders more, but only slightly more.

The BBT was never experimental unless you consider nerd black face experimental. There isn't any actual character development outside of who is sleeping with who. They did shake things up bit by adding more females in what was nominally a sausage fest. Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski) was a good addition to the cast as I found Kaley Cucoo (Penny) surprisingly unattractive despite having a nicer figure. The BBT also effectively resets at the end of each episode, they do call backs, like with the Mars Rover, but it's like how in the Simpsons how they do call backs. The laugh track is only the most blatantly wrong thing about this show pointing out each "joke" magnifying how unfunny they are. If I want some real nerd comedy or something consistently funny, I would go watch Futurama which did nerd comedy light years ahead of time.

30 Rock had a massive problem for a while where everything thing was about Tracy Jordan and I hate his guts. It's not helped by the fact the actor pulls the same garbage outside of 30 Rock. Now the problem is that it's no longer about a comedy show about making a comedy show, but about each character's neurosis and the exponential amount of Flanderization happening. The one thing that really worked for a while was Tina Fey's relationship with Matt Damon (Carol). Alec Badwin has always been golden in the series though.

I can't stand shows like Law and Order, besides being boring as hell, the whole ripped from the headlines level of writing can't compare to actual headlines, which is depressing. I do watch shows like NCIS and it's counterpart NCIS L.A, but mostly for the unintentional comedy factor especially with how everything about NCIS LA has to be some international incident even if it's just some local crime. The number of Arabs they shoot is borderline racist if it wasn't for the fact they have a ridiculously high body count that would make Rambo blush with envy. NCIS at least has the decency to stay sort of grounded in "some" police work if it wasn't for the absurd story arcs they have running through a given season. All that is assuming your willing to buy into the whole authoritarian police state ideal both shows push to a level matching propaganda where the people using the tools are always just people and terrorists are so sophisticated that suspending civil rights is always the only option.

NBC is in shambles right now. The AV Club posted an article recently about how NBC's ratings were tied with that of Univision. I didn't even know what network Univision was before reading the article. It doesn't matter what they're airing, people are avoiding NBC like rancid dog poop. Meanwhile, CBS is doing so good that the fucking Rob Schneider sitcom is getting 12 million viewers a week, (trouncing the also solid Parks and Rec in the same timeslot) and I don't hear ANYONE arguing that that is any good.

Before writing off the quality of CBS as a whole, I have heard from people I trust and critics that The Good Wife is one of the best shows on TV right now, it just has a terribly unappealing title. Like, I've heard serious comparisons to The Wire and Breaking Bad. I haven't seen it, can anyone confirm/deny?


I haven't watched TV in months. I don't have cable, and I don't have an antenna hokked up to my TV (so no broadcast stations).


So let me get this straight... NBC is a disaster, while CBS is doing very well. Where does that leave ABC and Fox?

i didn't like tbbt at first, and laugh tracks generally bother me, but then I saw the first episode, which sets up all the inside jokes. The first time I watched the show it was a star trek themed show and I figured I would never watch it again because at some point they would run out of geek humor. When I second saw bg bang theory it was without the laugh track on youtube, and it looked like the unfunniest show ever. Then I was extremely bored and the first episode was on and that was a good introduction to the characters. The thing I like about tbbt is that the characters are largely inconsistent. Sometimes they seem a certain way and sometimes they approximate that way. Though, iv watched them mostly out of order, which might explain that. The show is less about geek humor and more about social interaction. Though, id imagine in real life penny wouldn't talk to the gang beyond the first couple of encounters.

ABC is starting to get in trouble since their long running shows are dropping in ratings. Fox is doing really good, they have the #1 show on TV in terms of ratings (American Idol), and their other shows get solid ratings too.

That's just... weird.

McCain looked like a CG'd head atop a Muppet body more than a few times during that.

Woody Harrelson looks like Jesse Ventura.

I'm pretty sure that I saw Ron Livingston in there.

The use of the Guess Who's "American Woman" is either a not-so-subtle message, or no one bothered to actually listen to the lyrics.

Does anyone even actually still care about Palin? :o
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: oohhboy on March 11, 2012, 09:14:31 AM
I only know of it because Julianne Moore popped up a couple days ago on The Daily Show and from the clips I saw, it speaks volumes about her acting ability. It was such a scarily close impersonation Julianne Moore could replace Palin with no one the wiser if she had a little bit more weight and her face a touch wider or no one gets too close to her. On TV you could easily pass her off as the real deal. Tina Fey had done a good spoof, but that was still a spoof.

Julianne Moore is always a treat.
Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: BlackNMild2k1 on March 11, 2012, 11:33:03 AM
I just finished watching it. Julianne Moore did a great job and was very Palin like.
Ed Harris had a few McCain look-a-like moments, but he was too skinny. He also didn't really capture the McCain shocked and appalled moment either, but this movie isn't really about McCain.

This movie only put into movie form what I (and just about everyone else I know) had already known. Someone made a very bad decision and we all have had to live with it since.
This movie is very much a [Julianne Moore] put down piece that attempts to shift all ill thought of [Ed Harris] back onto [Julianne Moore], but after watching the movie, I think that blame should be on [Ed Harris]'s handlers. The story seems truthful enough even if some liberties might have been taken, and that truth is that she should never have been put in that position to begin with. I know that this was a made for TV movie, but it just seems like they rushed through a lot of it and they probably could have done a 3-4 part miniseries instead so that they could have gone into more detail... actually another 20-30 minutes of her build of confidence and her rise to fame to the point where she felt it was now her campaign might have been enough. But there were more laughs to be had at [Julianne Moore]'s expense.

Although the Palin watching Tina Fey do Palin on SNL parts brought back some very fond memories. Those skits got me to watch SNL again for a moment.... and made me a fan of 30 Rock.

Title: Re: New Movies/TV Shows we should keep an eye out for!
Post by: TJ Spyke on March 16, 2012, 12:14:05 AM
It's based on a "gothic soap opera" (using Wikipedia) of the same name that aired on ABC from 1966-1971. Apparently Burton is a fan of the series.

NBC tried reviving it in 1991, but it lasted only 2 months because ratings dropped due to episodes constantly being delayed or rescheduled due to coverage of the Gulf War. The WB then ordered a pilot for a new series in 2004 but didn't pick it up.

Michael Bay is terrible and I think that even audiences hate him.

His really successful movies aren't successful because of him but because he attaches himself to something the audience loves like a lamprey.  He gets to an actor while he's hot or gets a cherished childhood tv show and then put his name near it.  People hear his name but don't give a **** because they want to see Optimus or Ben Affleck (before Bennifer).  Transformers would have been successful as long as someone competent enought to have giant robots fight in front of the camera directed.

The two Ultimate Avengers films utilized him well enough. The problem is that Thor is literally a god, not just some guy that was exposed to gamma radiation. He's one a completely different level than anyone else in the Avengers, with his only real threat being other gods.

That's fucking stupid. Not what you said, the theatres. If 3D sales aren't doing it for you, CUT THE 3D! Don't force 2D movies to subsidize 3D costs. That only hurts people who want to see 2D movies. Price sensitivity exists in that market these days.

I rather liked The Frighteners a lot more than LOTR. It has a lot of heart, something I definitely can't say for King Kong and lacking in LOTR. LOTR felt rather impersonal. Althought it all this might be the whole "LOTR was made here" blowback talking. The media couldn't stop name dropping that for YEARS. Looking forward to a couple more years of this...

Mind you I haven't gotten to the whole debacle where our PM gave a movie studio a legal blow job when he hand waved away a chunk of our employment laws over one movie.

James Bond sells out his Martini for "Heineken" (http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/shortcuts/2012/apr/02/james-bond-product-placement).

I understood why they swapped out the PP7 for a P99 years ago, he had to update his weaponry at some point. But never would I consider him a beer drinking man. James Bond isn't an everyman, he is an idealised fantasy. The rough edges did give him a little bit more character, but in the end he is someone you want to be, not someone you already are.

Man, this is going to be like Die another day all over again.

There were already two superior versions of King Kong before Jackson got around to his half-assed attempt. Three if you count the first half of King Kong vs Godzilla. The movie simply did not need to be made. The fact that it wasn't even half as good as the versions that came before only served to make it that much more pathetic.

we just don't know for sure. We haven't really seen a character movie from Darrel Hammond. He always has small parts in other movies, but has never been leading man. On the other hand he was just as funny if not funnier than Will Farrel on SNL. One of my favorite skits was him as President Clinton dressed up as Mystery the Pickup artist. That was classic.

This isn't your regular Young Justice.  At least as far as my DVR is concerned... because it recorded the first minute or so at the end of Green Lantern, then left me f***ing hanging with no clue what the hell is going on.  On the plus side, Cartoon Network replays it every half hour or so.

Stupid DVR.

Only 13 episodes, but NBC isn't calling it the final season, so there's a chance it might get more. Six seasons and a movie!

Post by: Plugabugz on May 11, 2012, 06:03:00 AM
Yes, because they also renewed Smash even though that slid down the ratings.
Alcatraz (on Fox) was cancelled and that slid almost exactly the same amount - from about 12m to 5-6m.

Honestly, look at 13 episodes of Community as being a blessing. It's taking it into the realm of (long) british tv seasons, and that only means a good thing for quality.

I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if they resurrected Chuck at this point, because the shows they got running now really are all they have. NBC has been hurting, and sadly, it's the only reason Community survives for another season...

I agree, but NBC has not been having the best luck as of late, which is actually helping some of the better shows that would have been axed sooner in favor of of higher rated ones.

Chuck is just another example of a show that would have been axed sooner if NBC wasn't desperate to hold onto the viewers that it did have. Which was why I mentioned it, not that I actually think they should bring it back.

I know it was confirmed that 30 Rock is getting a final 13-episode wrap-up season. Good riddence. That show started out AMAZING but dropped off a cliff in the fourth season. Sadly, with that 13-episode "season" announced for Community, I fear the same is true for it. I hope not, because they JUST BROUGHT IT BACK. Parks & Rec may also be on the wrap-up season chopping block, even though it's great. And getting better. Especially after last night's episode.

If they want to free up some air space, please cancel the Office, and make it retroactive for about four years, please.

I have heard good things about the current season. And Family Guy would be a beloved cult classic approaching the levels of Arrested Development or Community if it had just stayed dead. Seth MacFarlane is a very talented and funny guy trapped by his own success. I'd compare him to Will Ferrell in that he's way better than most of his work would lead you to believe, but he rarely gets an opportunity to show it.

i've not seen any of the Craig Bond movies, iv tried to but when i first watched Casino Royale I was drunk and it was 3 in the morning so i fell asleep before the intro credits were over. Then of course I want to watch them in order, but from the Trailers they all look good. Its hard to say what means "Bond" to most people, but I think Craig seems more "Bond" to me than Dalton/Brosnan. Im going to have to say though that Craig/Connery/Moore are more similar than those 2 though. But of course I can only conclude how Craig is by the trailers and what half drunken stuff ive watched on his 2 movies as well as films like layer cake.

Olga Kurylenko? No NOONNO nON NOOoo. Have you seen how ungodly unsexy she is in Hitman?
Gemma Arterton, yeah
Eva Green: Best of British Classiness.

TMND was very borderline. DAD went Moonraker on everyone and lost. QoS was a mess on every level.

Goldeneye and Casino Royale are easily the two best modern bond films. It's no coincidence that they were both directed by the same guy, Martin Campbell (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0132709/). He really knows how to do a Bond film.

The animation is done by Japanese studio Polygon Pictures, and the show itself is made by Disney and airs on Disney XD.

I didn't realize Japanese animators could emulate American-style cartoons. I thought most animation done in Japan was for their own market. I'm constantly surprised at how much of a big difference there is between American animation and Japanese animation.


Japanese animators seem to have much higher standards for quality. I know that Japanese animation is outsourced to foreign companies, but overall the quality is much higher than American animation.

What about Japanese animation? Do Japanese studios outsource to foreign companies, or do they do most of the work themselves?


You are right, in general the quality of animation was lower in the 1940s. I did look at the videos you posted. As for budgets, there are high budget animated shows and low budget ones. There are also far more cartoons now then there were back then.


No no no, the quality was higher. Look at Disney's old animated movies (before the 1960's). The animation was more fluid and realistic.


Animation is the simulation of movement. Stuff done back in the old days felt more fluid and alive. The cartoons done today are more "pose-to-pose" animation, nothing really flows together. 


I found this blog post (http://brightredrocket.com/getanimated/?p=74) explaining why outsourcing animation is bad for the industry

I finally saw the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph the other day.  Looks like a movie with a lot of fun video-game references and character cameos (including at least one Nintendo character that can be seen in the trailer); I can't imagine that it's not a licensing nightmare.

They were showing that trailer on a huge screen on what seemed like a continuous loop in the Disney booth. It does look good from what little I saw when getting my free Vitamin Water at the little bar they had set up for some iPhone game. I got a shirt for it, but I gave it to Neal since it was too small for me.

Wreck-It Ralph looks about as boring and generic as you can get. Outside of the character's in the support group, nothing else caught my attention.

Tron Uprising looks interesting. I haven't watched the episode yet. I really hate the style that most modern cartoons are done in however. All of the current Marvel and DC cartoons suffer from similar problems. Characters look angular, with sharp features and hard lines prevalent. It's not a pleasing style at all, and is inferior to the style we used to see in things like the 90s X-Men and Spider-Man. It had a more western look to it that harkened back to comics themselves. This stuff nowadays just looks simplified and cheap.

I recommend both of them. Compared to any other children's cartoon, both shows breath new life into Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Season 1 starts out a little slow, but I was pretty much invested after 3 or 4 episodes.

So, anyone here a fan of the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series?  Well, the Walt Disney Company has a special message for you:

"**** YOU! (http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/12/marvel-confirms-new-avengers-assemble-animated-series)"

Much like when Disney butchered the wonderful Spectacular Spider-Man (and even redubbed the series' main voice actor when Spider-Man guest-starred on Avengers) to put out its mediocre new Teen Titans "Ultimate Spider-Man" (in name only) series, Disney has confirmed that they are canceling Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.  In its place will be a new Avengers series called "Avengers Assembled", which "more closely echoes the tone and the feel of the movie" rather than the original comics (which is what Earth's Mightiest Heroes is largely based on).

This was not unexpected considering it was yet another Marvel animated series in production before Disney bought Marvel, but it still really pisses me off.  At this point, I have to wonder what the point of following a Marvel animated series is, because they keep getting canceled just as they're getting awesome.   :@   I hope that this new series is actually good, but considering the incredibly average quality of Ultimate Spider-Man, I'm not going to get my hopes up.

In MUCH happier news, I am very pleased to say that Cartoon Network has confirmed that the much-beloved Teen Titans series (after a brief return in a series of shorts on the new DC block) will be returning next year as a half-hour series (http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/08/teen-titans-returning-with-new-full-length-episodes).  It will now be renamed "Teen Titans Go! and will remain comedy-focused like the shorts were, but the original voice cast is returning.  As someone who loved the animated Teen Titans series, that makes me very pleased indeed.   ;D

With the new Teen Titans Go! news, comes news of the new Batman series.

For all those who gave Brave and the Bold a hard time, **** you.


Quote
A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, ‘Beware the Batman’ incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form.

Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.

With WBA’s Sam Register executive producing, and Batman Beyond’s Glen Murakami and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’s Mitch Watson producing, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming soon to Cartoon Network

First, if you have to tell me your show is cool... it's probably not cool.

Second, ugh...  I won't completely give up hope (even The Batman had some cool things done with it, and I like the idea that they're going all detective-thriller as opposed to "Oh, there's the Joker and he's doing something zany!"), but... just ugh.  I'll watch it though.  I watched Batman and Robin.  In Spanish.  And no, I don't speak a lick of Spanish.

Well, let's be honest here: the original Teen Titans series was probably more of a comedy series than an action one, and the comedy episodes were almost always the best ones.  I wish we could have a direct continuation as well, but from what I've seen of the recent Teen Titans shorts I think this creative team knows what they're doing.  And even though the characters are in Chibi form (complete with a lowercase "t" Titans Tower), we're still getting essentially the same characters with the same voice actors.  I'll take my wins where I can get them these days.

Besides, I'll be there's plenty of action as well, considering I don't know how they could fill a half-hour slot with just random comedy without making it an anthology show.

With the new Teen Titans Go! news, comes news of the new Batman series.

For all those who gave Brave and the Bold a hard time, **** you.

I tried to like Batman: The Brave & the Bold.  I really did, and there are some episodes of it I do really like (like the Music Meister episode), but it's just not the kind of Batman show I want to watch.  It's a lot of the same reason why I'm pretty hard on Ultimate Spider-man, which is basically just a re-skinned Teen Titans with FAR worse writing.  It's an enjoyable series in its own goofy way, but it's not the kind of Spider-Man series I want to watch.

I'm going to try to give Beware the Batman a chance because as awful as that trailer and setup seem, The Batman also started out awful but eventually evolved into a series I'd put up there with many of the more enjoyable Batman: TAS episodes.

I watched all of the first season and haven't gotten to the second one yet.  I thought the first season was ok.  Though I wish they would have used a different Robin then Dick Grayson because that one doesn't feel like him and having Nightwing would have played well with the themes of the show.

I think I can state in a nutshell what everyone wants is more series in the lineage of Batman the Animated series.  Every Batman reinvisioning since has fallen hard to that really high standard.  While Justice League, Batman Beyond, heck even that one where they pulled young Superman into the Future was better stuff then the current crop.  Young Justice had/has the potential, but they have yet to get a good mix of relief episodes from the main tone.  Spectacular Spider-Man was good and had potential as well then it got cut.  I haven't seen the new Green Lantern show that might be fun.  Batman: Brave and the Bold I enjoyed on a slapstick level and I dug the Blue Beetle.  Though I think that show really could have survived without Batman and just keep introducing more obscure characters.

You know - TAS was good.  Great, even... but I think there's a lot of Nostalgia glossing over many of the... horrible episodes.  There's the one with the Oliver Twist-style guy lives in the sewer with a bunch of kids.  There's the one where you've got the three rich kids stealing for fun.  The scammy prophecy guy.  Anything with the Penguin - notably, the one with Batman in my basement... and the Mechanic episode that seems more fan-fiction than anything.  Catwoman loses her kitty.  Catwoman turns into an actual furry.  Oh, let's not forget the "farmer makes giant crickets" episode...

As for Young Justice... it's pretty darn good.  The second season really takes off and I love the fact that we're getting some second stingers in here.  The latest plot twist revealed in last week's episode was pretty amazing.

I'm torn, really.  I like the fact that shows like Green Lantern and Young Justice have a continuing story line with character development.  But I also like B:TAS and B:TBATB for the fact that you can jump in to just about any episode and not miss a beat.

Here is the crux of the American Cartoon philosophy and the Asian Cartoon philosophy.   American you either have no overarching story and just one shots or you have a continual story going on but all episodes can be watched alone and still being enjoyed.  Asian you tend to have continual story arcs that will lose people just randomly jumping in.  Asian Cartoon in general have a good average quality.  American cartoon there really isn't a median that most cartoons hit.  Your either good or bad.  Personally I prefer when the American style really hits its stride, Justice League be a great example (Most episodes can be watched alone, but there is an overarching story for the fans to follow.)  Asian I have to sit and watch the whole thing in an order and I can't just pop to episodes an average.  This makes them in essence a lot like watching a long movie.  Part of this comes from where each form roots are.  Asian Manga.  American Comic Books. 

Though on B:TAS for every hookie episode there was a good one to counter it.

Ceric, wouldn't want to spoil things for you, but based on what you've said, I think you'd enjoy Young Justice's second season.  I think that as of last week they've gone on hiatus and will start showing repeats of season 2.  It might be a good time to jump on board.

Uncle Bob, I totally agree with you about the plot twists on YJ.  The writers have shown that they can play with your expectations and still pull of some great surprises; it's been impressive.  I've also enjoyed the B-listers showing up; it's almost sort of gotten a minor Justice League Unlimited feel in a few of the episodes.

It's hard not to be a fan of B:TAS, particularly if you're of an age where you grew up watching it in the 90s.  I'd agree that it had it's share of stinker episodes;  however, since it was so unlike anything that came before and influenced so much that came after, it still just feels as if it's the big granddaddy of most of the modern superhero cartoons.

I hate CGI cartoon series. I'm not sure if I'll give that new Batman show a fair shot because of it. Haven't watched the Green Lantern show yet for that reason. I'm excited for more Teen Titans, though.

I was thinking the other day that since Superman vs The Elite coming out, maybe a Justice League Elite cartoon would be a good idea. It could be in the same universe as Young Justice, but be a little more gritty.

Caught up a little on it, and I agree about the Robin thing. The one they used had that almost fanboyish love for Batman that you see more with Tim than Dick. I actually thought it was Tim until the time jump. In retrospect, the time jump could've forced them to introduce Damian in to the continuity, which complicates things a bit.

It is strange, Robin in this series is being portrayed as being as skilled as Batman without all of the angst.  I wonder if that was just a decision to counter the "father/son" angst they were stressing between Connor and Superman during Season 1.  That seems to have all but disappeared after the time jump.  I found it hilarious that Batman was giving Superman advice on spending time with Connor during Season 1; this version of Batman, in fact, seems far less "broken" than the versions we had previously seen in the DCAU.

On the last episode before the hiatus:
I still wonder where the writers will end up with M'gann's character.  Does she kind of go to the "dark side" in the comics?  I also found it strange that while she has incredible psychic powers, she wasn't aware that her team members were deceiving her about Artemis' "death."  I'm excited to see where all of this goes, however.

It's been shown before that she has had issues letting her emotions get in the way of her psychic powers - remember the training exercise episode?  This seems to feed almost directly from that.

For those who are fans of B:TAS and don't already own the season sets, WB released a new collection this week.  It's $15 and has 13 episodes labeled "The Best of Batman".  Now, while I question the choices (No "His Silicon Soul"?  One of my favorites.  And "Bane"?  Guh.  One of my least favorites.), on the whole, the DVD is worth it if you just want some of the best the series had to offer.

Now, if WB wanted to be awesome, they should have released a "Best of Batman" collection that had, say, some TAS, some Batman Beyond, some B:TBATB, some of The Batman, an episode or two of the old Live Action series, maybe some Super Friends or such...  The collection we got should have been named "The Best of Batman: The Animated Series"...

Also, B:TBATB Complete Season 3 came out this week.  Yay.  This has a "bonus episode" featuring the "Birds of Prey" singing about Aquaman's tiny penis that went unaired on US Television.

It looks like ****, it is better animated than the last series though, but the original 80's cartoon was beautiful, at least for the most part.

For any of you who don't frequent the Avatar: Legend of Korra thread, I recommend the show wholeheartedly. The season finale just aired and it was amazing. It's lived up to it's predecessor's reputation.

Two quick updates...

Now, if WB wanted to be awesome, they should have released a "Best of Batman" collection that had, say, some TAS, some Batman Beyond, some B:TBATB, some of The Batman, an episode or two of the old Live Action series, maybe some Super Friends or such...  The collection we got should have been named "The Best of Batman: The Animated Series"...

So... this is odd.  I finished watching this collection last night.  There are 13 episodes on the two-disk set.  12 of them are from TAS... a single epsiode is from The Batman.  But what makes it stranger - the episode they picked is the one that tells Robin' origin... and while it was a fine episode, TAS's 2-part episode telling the origin of Robin was quite a bit better - not to mention the fact that I'm pretty sure it won some award or another for being so awesome. Seems like an odd choice, but whatever. :D

Quote
Also, B:TBATB Complete Season 3 came out this week.  Yay.  This has a "bonus episode" featuring the "Birds of Prey" singing about Aquaman's tiny penis that went unaired on US Television.

Lame.  The DVD includes the edited version.  In the unedited version, when singing about Aquaman's tiny penis, the Huntress waves her pinky finger.  The edited version, the cut to a pan of a fish tank. :(

This right here is why I love the Brave and the Bold. It just doesn't give a ****. If it's funny or crazy it goes in. I mean where else are you going to see Superman's Superdickery in animated form? While focusing on Batman did constrain them a bit, I think it was done out of practical reasons. I would imagine having to recast each episode without some "Core" characters to streamline things would have been a logistical nightmare.

Post by: UncleBob on June 23, 2012, 02:13:55 PM
I wonder if the series could have worked in such a way, like...
Episode One - Batman teams up with Green Arrow.
Episode Two - Green Arrow teams up with Black Canary
Episode Three - Black Canary teams up with Zatanna
Episode Four - Zatanna teams up with Etrigan

And so on, and so forth.  Various heroes could make return appearances (for example, Green Arrow would need to come back and team up with Green Lantern!).

Anyway, I guess I can't complain too much - We got 65 episodes filled with some of the most amazing and obscure heroes and villains from within the vast history of the DC universe.

When we have another television series willing to go as wacky as BatApe or teaming Batman up as Uncle Sam in one episode, then giving us something as awesome as Chill of the Night or the entire Starro sub-plot later on... well, it just doesn't get any better than that.

What licensing hell did someone go through to pull this off? Looks like it goes generic pretty quickly though. A bit of Reboot flavor with game hopping.

Community S03 start. Much stronger opening than S02 opening. John Goodman? **** yes. "You wanted to feel real power this year. Now you're going to feel my power, straight through you from nostril to rectum, now until the end of time. And that's...'wassup'." Totally sets the tone for the season

Rob Schneider movies are better than Adam Sandler. At least Rob Schneider is actually putting in the effort and he has the whole ugly as sin pity thing going for him. Adam Sandler is literally the same asshole in every movie and he is just being himself. Rob Schneider gives a **** about acting. The Hot Chick was super weird, but damn he put some heart into it. Between the two, I would take Rob any day of the week.

As for Stallone's Dredd, I have a liking for it because it's a bit fucked in the head and Sly is just hamming it up. Had some pretty decent soecial effects. Sure, a lot of the plot and the ending didn't make much sense, it had a camp quality to it with some fantastic dialogue, but it could have done a little less Schneider, just a touch. Without Rob it would have been Sly grimacing for 96 Minutes. But it is nowhere as good as Demolition Man, now that is a classic.

Well, I wouldn't know how wolves act. It seemed realistic to me. I don't remember who had a wound that didn't affect them later. They seemed pretty bundled up so I'm not sure how they'd get hypothermia. They simply didn't survive long enough to get hypothermia. And in the context of the movie, you're supposed to pity them because they were being killed by the wolves. You can debate whether or not the wolves were realistic, but they were attacked. I'm going to pity them. And hell, they only killed one wolf. Two if you count the ending.

Post by: Morari on July 30, 2012, 10:40:34 AM
Fictional stories require a suspension of disbelief to enjoy. The more realistically you try to present your story, the harder that is. The film was shot well, and most of the actors gave pretty decent performances considering what they had to work with. Beyond that though, it was rubbish. The events were so far removed from anything even capable of happening in reality that it might as well have been about a werewolf of wendigo attack.

I don't feel pity for a character simply because they are being killed by wolves. There are far, far more humans on this planet than there are wolves. Some people, here and there, can stand to die in favor of a growing wolf population. It's especially difficult to feel any empathy when they are already scummy oil workers, some of whom are literally paid to senselessly kill wolves.

Why was Batman fighting that badguy from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and why didn't he have that brain thing (Krang?) in his stomach anymore?

Hahaha and why did he have metal nipples?

Also, why did Batman have a gun at one point?

Have you people not read Dark Knight Returns?

the original question isn't so much that why does batman have nipples as much as why doesn't he?

In the drawings of all superheroes the just look like they have their designs painted on their skin. So it looks like their missing nipples. Many times even shirtless superheroes don't have nipples.

You want Bat-nips? Watch the Joel Schumacher Batman films (Batman Forever, Batman & Robin).

Batman should get a pass on not having nipples since he's wearing armor. Superman on the hand...

Err, no. Rachel Nichols is in it so I will look out for it if and when it pops up here. Had a LOL moment when the first review on IMDB was titled: If Ayn Rand wrote SciFi, this would be it. To be honest, I read the review and this show might not be my cup of tea considering I find the political undertones utterly repugnant.

It has particularly strong political tones, but i have grown to like the show mainly because of it's slow (but decently paced) buildup. And the CGI and set design for the scenes in the future is SGU-quality.

Kryptonian.  It hasn't been proven that the males retain nipples.

IGN has a new interview with the director of Wreck-It Ralph (which looks really good from the trailer I saw before The Dark Knight Rises). He talks about stuff like securing rights to characters (especially tough was Nintendo, saying Bowser should be bigger and that he wouldn't drink his coffee that way). http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/08/06/wreck-it-ralph-creators-on-using-actual-video-game-characters

A co-worker of mind has repeatedly pushed me to go see Lawless.

It's Shia Lebouf's new movie. Something about bootleg liquor days based on a true story. He said it was really good. Anyone heard anything about it?

If it has Shia Leboooof it can't be that good.

That's what I was thinking, and the main reason why I posted it in this thread instead of blindly going to go see it.

It's actually quite good. Though Shia's performance is probably his best ever, he's still only manages to be pretty good.  The real reason to watch is Tom "Bane" Hardy as his older brother and a bit part by Gary Oldman.

My mom's a big Tom Hardy fan, and I am too from his work in The Virgin Queen. She's been hyped about Lawless ever since she watched a trailer for it on her laptop.

JGL and Shia probably cancel each other out.


EDIT: Never mind, for some reason I thought JGL was in this movie. Not sure where I got that idea. Maybe I was mixing it up with Looper.

Grimm, one of the most interesting and unique shows I've seen in years. It's basically like Van Helsing set in modern times.
