Drop on in to the Pun's House Cineplex and catch a flick or two. Sorry, but you'll have to bring your own popcorn. If you find a full movie that you enjoy (Hulu is a great resource), feel free to post it.
i think matt's a fucking idiot. kathy and andrew? because kathy voted against him? when he KNOWS making a deal with brendon and rachel is pointless since they obviously wont hold to it. plus he is the biggest "protest too much" douchebag i've ever seen. how many times are you gonna mention you don't have an alliance? waiting for them to realize that you DO? shut up already. shut up about everything. he constantly puts himself on the radar by saying shit that doesn't need to be said. the brigade's gotta dump him quick or he's gonna fuck them over.
There's a script review out for the film which divulges the basic details of the story (summed up as "Die Hard set in the world of Blade Runner") theplaylist.blogspot.com/2010/07/details-alex-garlands-judge-dredd.html I like the sound of it, and think it's nice and refreshing it's focussing on what seems to be just another case for Dredd, rather than the overblown fit-as-much-stuff-from-the-comics-in-at-once approach of the Stallone film. They can establish Dredd's character and his abilities as a cop before doing bigger stuff in sequels.
I guess. I never really followed the comics or the old TV shows (no old jokes, Solly!) It seems to me from the trailer that Kato does most of the heavy lifting. Is that the way it's always been?
Kato was played by Bruce Lee originally, so you'd hope so. He was expected to lose a fight to Robin in an Adam West Batman crossover, but just shook his head and got it changed to a draw. Anyway, THIS...ehhh. I was more excited when Stephen Chow was attached to direct and play Kato. This could be good with the focus on Kato, but it'll really depend on how well Seth Rogen will fit in it, and as the guy who wrote the thing, it seems rather than try to actually BE the Green Hornet, he's just reworked the character to be more like the sort of guys he usually plays. The trailer confused me though because at one point it makes it seem like he's inheriting the Green Hornet role from his father, but then makes clear he originates it. Also, it shows just how cliche an unnecessary romantic subplot is when they do the very bare minimum to show it in the trailer, like with Cameron Diaz's character literally having 3 seconds of screentime in it and her one line is introducing herself.
He was good in Doctor Parnassus. I don't think he did a terribly good american accent in a Doctor Who story he was in though. I hear they're setting this in college now instead of high school, which he works better for.
Fuck you, DAN GARRETT OG BB FTW SOB! Honestly though, this is the best chance you'll have of seeing a live action Ted Kord as far as I'm concerned. They can pace the show out with Jaime finding the scarab and getting his powers, dealing with the localised villains, then learning about the history of the Blue Beetle name (complete with flashbacks), and show more of the DCU. Being set in a real place like El Paso and having a lesser known main character could benefit it with lesser expectations, unlike Smallville, which we've had our frustrations with over the years. Jaime's also got a great supporting cast from the start. Which non-JLI buddies would have been in a Ted Kord series?
Director Christopher Nolan has confirmed that the Joker will not return in Batman 3 in a new interview with the U.K.'s Empire magazine just hitting stands now. This comes via Obsessed With Film, which reprinted Nolan's comments from the published interview.
Here's the excerpt when Nolan is asked about the Joker coming back: "'No,' says Nolan emphatically and unhesitatingly. He resists elaborating simply because, quite understandably, he says, 'I just don't feel comfortable talking about it.'"
That settles that. There's been speculation almost since The Dark Knight came out in 2008 that Nolan might consider recasting the role, which was played to perfection by the late Heath Ledger. One name even floated as a possible replacement was Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who resembles Ledger and appears in Nolan's upcoming Inception. The thinking was that the Joker would act more as a puppetmaster from inside Arkham Asylum, pulling the strings for a new villain or villains. But Ledger's Oscar-winning performance was so iconic, and Nolan was reportedly hit so hard by Ledger's untimely death in January 2008, that the idea of putting another actor in the role seemed far-fetched at best.
With the Joker off the table, rumors continue to circulate about which villains Nolan will use in the movie, which is due for release in July 2012. The director himself has kept quiet about his intentions, only telling the Los Angeles Times that he had ruled out Mr. Freeze. Fan favorites include the Riddler, Catwoman and possibly Black Mask.
Also in the article, Nolan discusses the Superman reboot that he's producing and Batman collaborator David Goyer is writing. While Nolan says that "you can't move too far away" from the character's roots, he calls Goyer's approach "really tremendous. It was the first time I've been able to conceive of how you'd address Superman in a modern context. I thought it was a really exciting idea."
I'm glad. There were a few actors I thought of as possible replacements, but I still really preferred he not come back at all out of respect.
At least this one seems to be less ashamed of doing a superhero show, while Heroes was always pretty half-hearted about it and seemed to feel the need to make fun of it way too much to not feel embarassed. This one has a set up that you would actually expect an original superhero comic to have: costume, tragic backstory, corrupt city, outlandish training, investigative reporter. www.sfx.co.uk/2010/05/17/the-cape-preview-clips/ It's a shame he couldn't get revenge for his family being killed though, as that kid's an annoying little shit.
I think this was also the first time, though, that I marked out for a wide-angle shot of a country, as I just returned from visiting Monaco and totally geeked out at everything I saw in the scenes in the movie. Especially since they were actually prepping for the F-1 race (which is next Sunday) when I was there.
I started watching the movie years ago, but never finished it, had to work the next morning and it came on at like 2 am. I have caught a lot of episodes on the 101 Network (on Direct TV) recently, and I gotta say, this show is fucking funny.
The whole premise is there is a camera crew following three completely inept petty criminals (Ricky, Julian and Bubbles) sometimes you don't know the cameras are there, other times they get the camera people to help them.
The spoils to the main characters - other than life itself - are the park manager and his boy toy (Mr. Lahey and Randy)
Words really don't do this justice. Really, just sit down and watch a couple of episodes, it is hilarious.
