Rachel Weisz: Bond Villain?!?

Mar 29th 2010 9:55PM Is it only me who is wondering who "and its not who you'd expect" is?
RW could be excellent in this type of role. Like most actressess (except Meryl Steep) she seems to be always looking for a role with some meat to it. I also agree with the other comment about Joan Allen being a great choice for a nemesis for Felix.

Discuss: Which Movie Should Be Re-Released in 3D Next?

Jan 12th 2010 1:20AM 3d is getting attention for 2 reasons, firstly studios absolutely LOVE making money off their back catalog in any way they can, hence all the talk about re-releases in 3d. Second, theaters are able to charge a couple of bucks more per ticket, which gets split between them, and the studios (with some going to cover the costs of glasses, licensing 3d tech, etc.)
3d is the only thing pushing digital projection into theaters, which the studios desperately want. It will reduce the cost of relasing a film by several million dollars once it becomes widespread. the problem is, the digital projection industry (specifically TI, Barco, Christie, & NEC) made the mistake of spending ZERO dollars marketing the benefits of digital projection to the public, they only marketed to the studios and theater owners. A digital projection system costs about 10X what a film setup does, and a film projector made in 1960 is still able to run current prints, think of a digital format that's 20+ years old and can still be viewed in any town in the country. I work in the film industry, and to me 3d is a gimmick and a pain in the ass and I wish it would go away. But money talks, and right now 3d makes money.

Taylor Swift Rumored for 'Supergirl' Reboot

Dec 21st 2009 1:20AM I dunno, they had to cast Latina-ish Jessica Alba as the waspy, blonde, blue eyed Sue Storm. Maybe blonde actresses are in short supply. Supergirl seems like a kind of fanboy jizz-fantasy anyway. Red leather go-go boots, miniskirt and a half-shirt? Sounds like nothing but spank-fodder to me.

Newsweek Blames George Bush for Dark, Depressing Movies - Do You Agree?

Dec 9th 2009 11:28PM Bush is somewhat responsible, but indirectly. trashing the economy and post 9/11 fear mongering brought gloomy feelings to the country. But interestingly one depressing subject has had almost zero appeal to the public, The Iraq War, and the middle east in general. Films like "Redacted" "The Lucky Ones" "Lions for Lambs" and "The Kingdom" all basically flopped. The only Iraq related film that seems to have caught anyone's attention is "The Hurt Locker" but I think that is because, 1: its an excellent film, and 2: Iraq is only the back drop, not the subject of the film.

Howard Stern's Time on the SAG Nomination Committee

Dec 4th 2009 9:39PM With the exception of Jimmy Fallon, seems like a pretty solid list. I mean its not like he's picking Pauly Shore or Kim Kardashian. I know some guys don't think Renee Zellweger is particularly pretty, she is a capable actress, Kevin Bacon is versatile and has definitely proven himself over the years.

Cinematical Seven: Sci-Fi Series That Need Movie Reboots

Nov 18th 2009 3:06AM I had forgotten "Brimstone" !
I really liked that show! of course it suffered from being on FOX and killed all to quickly.
does anybody remember "G vs E"?
In the current climate of "Supernatural" and "Reaper", at least re-running "G vs E" would make sense on syfy. well at least more sense than WWE

Daily DIY: Stainless Blade Hack

Oct 28th 2009 11:35AM Y'know, you can also use a stainless steel spoon or ladle, then there is no possibility of blood loss. Also high end kitchen-y type stores sell a little gadget to do this, its a chunk of stainless steel roughly the size and shape of a well used bar of soap, but buying one of those isn't really a hack.

Fan Rant: When Marketing Leads Audiences Astray

Aug 27th 2009 1:37AM funny thing about wicker park, during a test screening I saw, people in the audience were laughing when the couple kept missing each other, they should have sold it as a comedy.

Discuss: The Movies That Never Catch On

Jul 19th 2009 7:08PM The Film making itself. The scene in the begining when the bomb blows up the coffee shop, you can tell that Clive Owen had no idea when the explosion was going to happen. little things like that. But the most amazing thing is the cinematography. In this world of McG, MTV and Michael Bay quick jump cuts, you owe it to yourself to go back and watch it on dvd. The entire scene when she gives birth is one shot, no cuts.
The entire battle sequence when the police storm the refugee camp is one shot. One camera, no cuts, with pyrotechnics, stunts, battle choreography, one freaking shot! If some of the details of the script were a little wonky, to me they were overshadowed by the sheer tour de force direction and cinematography.

Jul 13th 2009 2:21PM For me its "Children of Men" I thought it was fantastic, but all anyone could talk about was Pan's Labyrinth or Babel
