Upcoming Films...

Postby Rainswept on Fri May 30, 2008 8:48 pm

Post about films to come you have something to say about.

I'm most excited by Dark Knight, but I'm also anxious to see if they can pull off the Watchmen
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Dark Knight as well, but I'm especially looking forward to Wanted. (I blame it on my weakness for armed women.)

I'm also anxiously awaiting, yes, Wall-E, the next Pixar flick.

Oh, and Hellboy.

I'm not really a fan of Hellboy. The first one was kinda lame and overdone, IMO.

I'm waiting for World War Z to come out in 2010. Brad Pitt's production company, called Plan B, is doing it. He must be one of the smartest guys in film out there at the moment.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Of course it was! It was brazen about its completely unrealistic premise. That's what I liked about it: they were completely flagrant and unapologetic.

So you liked it for its vulgar filmography?

Red Nails is in production , it's going to be an animated adaption of the (IMHO) best Conan story Howard ever wrote .

I hope they don't blow the screenplay , Thomas and Smith created the definitive comic version 35 yrs. ago and I hope film has the comic's same gritty , dismal mood .

I'm not quite sure what you are asking.

Well, you liked it because the characters were under devoloped and obvious, and because it was so unrealistic and overdone that it had you cringing with disgust at the floor of the cinema? (Or maybe that was just me?)

That's not the definition of filmography, my man. Regardless, I was not crying with disgust during the movie; I was inhaling the heady vapors of fiction.

Starship Troopers, now, that was a movie to move you to tears of frustration on accounts of an abysmally shallow protagonist.

But they had co-ed shower scenes to make up for it!

Meh. Not nearly enough development. And by development I mean wide-angle shots.

At least they had Batgirl topless. (Dina Meyer, not Alicia Silverstone)
