So i saw Superman Returns, good film.

But everything except the special FX were not as good as the 1978 version.
Its like the recent Star Wars films, the character building was poor, and the acting a bit weak.
And IMO, Louis Lane was really bad in this version. Just kinda flat.

Oh and there could have been much better action. The ending wasnt nearly as spectacular as id hoped.

They've proved that replacing actors won't kill a franchise; Val Kilmer replaced Michael Keaton as Batman and it was still ridiculously profitable.

I think Bosworth as Lois Lane needs to go for the sequel. She was a very weak point of the new film

Yeah I agree with you on the Superman film. It was rather underwhelming, particularly in the department of the Lex Luthor storyline.

True, and I'm not saying the Superman franchise is dead. The Character himself is to compelling to ever be a total flop at the box office. The franchise will continue but I doubt it will ever be as good. Reeves nailed the Superman roll and Hackman nailed Lex Luther in a way that none of the actors playing Batman ever did. If anything, the villians in the Batman series have done a much better job than the actual Batman. Maybe that is why they have been able to replace them so easily.

The only question is "Who will play Joker?"

I nominate Paul Bettany. That ****er looks sadistic and goofy enough to play the part, plus he's just a solid actor anyway.

Bale was better in the respect that he is much bigger and has more of a brooding, dark look. I think he is just as good of an actor as Keaton is as well. BB made you understand that Batman can fight, whereas the others just made him some smallish guy who can knock people out with 1 punch or headbutt magically.

Keaton was very good though.

I think Jack Nicholson as the Joker was perfect in many ways, but i think next time they'll make him younger and more physical. More of a pin up handsomne dude.

Also today on tv they were saying how Superman seems to represent right-wing America.
Whereas Batman is darker and more for the leftys.

Superman was beyond blockbuster trash.

I really think that Tim Burton's direction in the first Batman back in 1989 was a huge reason for it's success. Batman's "Gothem City" is a dark and dangerous place. Superman's "Metropolis" is much brighter and full of hope.

I agree with you on that. Whereas the new Superman movie is less impressive to me the more I think about it after seeing it, Batman Begins grew more on me after I saw it. One of these I'll get around to getting the DVD. I have very high expectations for the sequel.

Which Batman movie you like more is dependent upon 1 question. I was having a debate with RWK and Gringo and realized that neither of us is incorrect.

If you like the darker, deeper, more acting involved movie: Then Batman is your movie. If you like action, fight scenes, etc then Batman Begins is your movie.

Honeslty the fight scenes is the only thing I think Batman can work on in the sequel. They were much too quick and up close. You couldnt really tell what was going on most of the time. However the story and acting was so good it didnt bother me. The action was good as well.

I heard that they were talking to Johhny Depp about being joker. Although this was about six months back, I would love to see it happen.

Just watched 'The Squid and the Whale'. It's a very good film, but it hits home a bit roughly for divorced parents. Jeff Daniels is a very underrated actor - most people's first thoughts of the guy is Jim Carrey's partner in 'Dumb and Dumber'...

There was not a single aspect of the movie that did not suck. the plot, the acting, the characters just awful. in fact out of the entire 2 and a half hour movie there was only one scen that was entertaining and that was the shuttle/airplane rescue.

Watched the second Pirates of the Carribean and this take is coming from a guy who has not watched the first one. No character, besides maybe Bloom, failed in supporting and Depp proabley played one of his best in ten years (again maybe he did do better in the first i dont know). I enjoyed the action but the love story with bloom and knightley could have been avoided or less i felt. The one on one on one scene for the key is the best action scene of the year.

The length of the movie is probabley the worst thing about the movie. In addition, I wanted to see less of Blooms character since we all knew he would be a clean cut pirate, and more of Depp's complicated character.

....I think your both hitting the crack pipe as I thought Superman was awesome. Most critics and most people I talk to agree. I was a huge fan of the original as well. Sonny, you made up your mind about that movie before you ever went to see it because you think only Christopher Reeves could play the roll. You would have said it was **** regardless.

The best thing was the music.
Yea, i know it was the same music from the 1978 version, but the way Superman Returns started with that music, it kinda seduced me.

I thought it was ok at first, but after seeing the original again last weekend, Superman Returns is just poor.

i liked Superman Returns. Kevin Spacy and the new SM were very good imo. Nobody will ever be better than Gene Hackman, but Spacey put his own spin on the character.

The sequel will be even better. The first one (as was the case with the original) was a story set up movie. The second will be more action I;m sure.

Of course it doesn't quite hold up to the original but it's a solid 3-star comedy. Some bits work quite well (the Pillow Pants bit, the donkey show, the Porch Monkey bit, the musical Jackson 5 roof dance) - others don't (go karting, Jay and Silent Bob in the cell, much of the over-the-top vulgarity and gay jokes in place of cleverness) - but it's hard to view this film without comparing it to the original. It's still one of the most quotable comedies of the past few years, with Anchorman and Napoleon Dynamite, and it's better written than 90% of comedies that make it to the big screen...

AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM

This indie doc takes a look at the U.S. government with a decidedly angry slant, including topics such as the IRS, the Federal Reserve, abridged freedoms of U.S. citizens, money creation, voter fraud, the national identity card, the implementation of Radio Frequency Identification technology to track citizens and an alleged police state.

Between pay cable and a short stack of DVDs I got to borrow from my sister, I've seen a handful of movies in the past couple weeks (and a couple cinema visits). I'll include the rating I gave the movie on my imdb account and if you agree/disagree on me on any, feel free to respond...

Hoodwinked: 5/10
The Ice Harvest: 8/10
Shopgirl: 6/10
Brokeback Mountain: 8/10
Clerks II: 7/10
Fresh Horses: 4/10 (and that's generous, but I'm giving an extra point for unintentional comedy factor for its early twentysomething Ben Stiller performance)
The Squid and the Whale: 8/10
Transamerica: 6/10
Superman Returns: 6/10

Transamerica gets even uglier in terms of subject matter than would be required in an already heavy film - but not for the better - the viewer is already barraged by an atypical road movie. The woman's son is mistreated in this movie by about everyone - include the scriptwriter.

Felicity Huffman is good but I thought the movie was overrated...

Next conspiracy movie I'll check out is Terrorstorm:

http://infowars.com/terrorstorm/trailers.htm

"TerrorStorm sets a new standard in documentary filmmaking. Alex Jones knocks it out of the park yet again."
-Dylan Avery, Director, "Loose Change"

Produced in a limited run exclusively for The American Scholars Symposium in Los Angeles (June 2006), this version of TERRORSTORM features material which will be unavailable on the final cut to be released in several weeks.

This is not the final version of TERRORSTORM which will include extras and footage from the American Scholars Symposium but this information on government sponsered terrorism is so incredibly important that it had to be made available as soon as possible...

Each copy is signed by Filmaker Alex Jones.

Our leaders have told us that the war on terror may last a hundred years; a new kind of war against a shadowy enemy that can never be defeated.

Generation after generation will have to lay down its liberty in an endless war for global empire

The evil men who rise to power know well that terrorism is the perfect specter to convince populations to relinquish their liberty in the name of security.

TERRORSTORM explores who pulls the strings and who benefits from the dark spectacle of modern warfare. This incredible new film answers the questions:

Do the people know how they are controlled?

Do they understand the systems of power that surround them, the modern propaganda machines of public relations that wash their brains and fill their minds full of ball games and mindless fluff?

Is the population beginning to realize that governments throughout history have used the specter of fear to drive their populations to acquiesce to total tyranny?

TERRORSTORM examines September 11th, the Iraq War, the 7/7 Bombings in London, and the coming invasion of Iran to reveal the connections between these seemingly separate events. Jones reviews the current geopolitical structure in the shadow of 9/11 through a focused historical lens and uncovers accounts of government sponsored terrorism that are openly admitted to by western governments.

This powerful documentary explores the mindset of the average brainwashed westerner and delves deeply in to those systems of control which have been designed to imprison their minds and keep their eyes closed to the realities of the world around them.

This exclusive American Scholars Symposium edition of TERRORSTORM is only available for a limited time.

Terrorstorm is currently available only on DVD (DVD-R format).

"Don't act like you're not impressed"

On an aside I've seen Superman, the Break-Up and Pirates OTC this summer, and my reviews are as following:

Superman - good - better acting from both superman and lois lane from the originals, not enough Clark Kent for my liking but a solid blockbuster

POTC - Crap - the first instalment was a cracking film for the family, had genuinely funny moments and a good plot. This was unoriginal sycophantic and forced.

The Breakup - Not bad, good work from the leads inc Aniston, but left me feeling depressed as it cut pretty close to the bone how silly and irreperable some situations get. I've had argumaments just like those in the film and have had the moments where you think you're gonna get back together and you find out you've hurt the other person too much to go back...:(

Margot Kidder was amazing as Louis Lane, and Christopher Reeves genuinly funny as Clark Kent, plus he looked much better as Superman.
Brandon Routh is just an imitation of Reeves Superman/Kent.

Anchorman was good...Not as good as Old School though. That movie was hilarious.

My favorite part of Anchorman was when the sound was cut and the credits were running and Ferrel and Applegate were dissing each other, and smiling all the while. Comic genius. I actually fell asleep during POTC. It was late and I had been drinking a lot.:p

No Joke: Ledger is the New Joker
Wednesday August 2 10:59 AM ET

For some, it makes no more casting sense than the idea of Jack Nicholson as a gay cowboy. But most are willing to give Christopher Nolan the benefit of the doubt.

By FilmStew Staff Report, FilmStew.com

Making good on a report issued several weeks ago on the website LatinoReview.com, Warner Bros. this week announced that actor Heath Ledger will star opposite Christian Bale in the next Batman flick, picking up where Jack Nicholson and Cesar Romero left off.


"Chris' unique vision is what made Batman Begins such an outstanding film, and we could not imagine anyone else at the helm of The Dark Knight," said Jeff Robinov, President of Production for Warner Bros. Pictures. "We also can't wait to see two such formidable actors as Christian and Heath face off with each other as Batman and The Joker."

Added Nolan: "I'm excited to continue the story we started with Batman Begins. Our challenge in casting The Joker was to find an actor who is not just extraordinarily talented but fearless. Watching Heath Ledger's interpretation of this iconic character taking on Christian Bale's Batman is going to be incredible."

Set to beging shooting in early 2007, The Dark Knight is based on a script written by Nolan's brother Jonathan, who previously worked with his sibling on Memento and the upcoming The Prestige, starring Bale and Hugh Jackman. Ledger, meanwhile, was of course a darling of the 2005-2006 film awards season, although he only won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor. His work in Brokeback Mountain otherwise failed to convert his nominations for an Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG Award and BAFTA Award. For that, he can blame Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He's a sell-out because in interviews he has admitted to avoid putting any of his input or political ideas into the film like he did in films like Born on the 4th of July or JFK. This is not a conspiracy movie. He's being a good boy for the suits.

we ended up seeing pirates of the caribbean last night.
most of you have seen it, i am sure, but i don't get out much. :o

i liked the movie but i have a problem sitting through a 2 1/2 hour movie that just ends with nothing really being resolved (the problems that existed at the beginning of the movie are still there, plus there are even more obstacles now).
it was like lord of the rings, it just ended in the middle. it took 2 1/2 hours to set the scene for the next movie. just a big cliff hanger.

my husband, didn't like the movie though. he was bored.

oh well, i do have some high hopes for the 3rd movie.

Went and saw Talledega Nights last night. Although it has gotten good reviews from fans and critics, I thought it was only decent. I guess Ferell's act is starting to get old for me. His whole "Im on fire" scene was not funny to me. It just reminded me of when he went streaking in Old School, or when his dog died in Anchorman. The hospital scenes got the biggest laughs from me. Other than that I didnt laugh out loud too much. Ive read that Ali G was funny as the French driver, however I found his character to be annoying. All in all a decent movie, its hard to live up to Anchorman, Old School, Elf, Wedding Crashers etc. every time out.

I actually got a kick out of Talledega Nights; but I'd never seen a Will Ferrell movie before.....I never found him especially funny on SNL, so I had no interest in seeing his movies; but it was the same with Adam Sandler.

Anyway, the movie was dumb; but I thought it was funny as hell in spots.

WHEN WILL HOLLYWOOD LEARN?

Carrey doesn't want to do sequels. He did Ace 2 because he was contractually obligated.

Son of the Mask flopped terribly. So did Dumb and Dumberer. I don't think Evan Almighty will be as big as Bruce Almighty, but at least they got Steve Carrell to do that one.

Morgan Creek tracking down third 'Ventura'
15 Aug 2006 2:15am EDT - By Sheigh Crabtree
Morgan Creek has begun the detective work on a kooky cold case. The production company has hired Jeff Sank and brothers Jason and Justin Heimberg to write a third installment of the hit franchise Ace Ventura. The two previous Ventura comedies -- 1994's Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and the following year's Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls -- grossed more than $180 million domestically and helped establish Jim Carrey as one of the highest-paid comedy actors in Hollywood. The latest pet project is expected to center on the eccentric detective's son, who steps into his father's shoes to take over the family business. Visit HollywoodReporter.com for more ...

Took my son to see "Zoom" tonight. He liked it; then again he's almost 7 - years old. Minimal background information, even less character development - it wasn't a "thumbs up" movie, though I guess for a 90 min. throwaway movie I've seen worse. Tim Allen does all right with the material that's provided.

What's sad, though, is Chevy Chase in the film - he's certainly a long way from the Vacation and Fletch days. There's a particular demeaning scene, where as a military scientist, he is checking an outdoor simulation center and the kids put him through rain, snow, lightning, and finally unleash a fake skunk to spray him right in the face. But this isn't Chevy doing his knocks for laughs - it's Chevy doing whatever he can to find work...

The Island blows donkey balls. Michael Bay has yet to direct anything worth a damn.... however I Think he is producing Transformers... so maybe he's done striking out.

On a serious note:

Snakes on a Plane was the most fun I've had at the theaters since I saw Dumb and Dumber when I was like 9. The last movie experience I saw in theaters I enjoyed more was Sin City.... maybe Inside Man. Seriously, no joke... see this film. Go with an open mind and don't take it seriously and you'll love every second of it. I've never laughed so hard in my life. Scouts honor.

Bring it! West Newton tough guy comes home...for a smackdown!
By Inside Track
Monday, August 21, 2006 - Updated: 03:16 AM EST

West Newbury native John Cena returned home yesterday to do what he does best: kick some butt!

“There are very few things in this world I do well,” the two-time world champion wrestler told the Track before last night’s WWE SummerSlam Championship match at TD Banknorth Garden against defending Champion Edge,“but kicking ass is one of them!”



Performing is a close second on the 29-year-old ’s talent list, and he’ll have the chance to prove it in October, when his first feature film, “The Marine,” hits theaters.

“Twentieth Century Fox said they were looking for a young, big action hero for the part,” he recalled. “So I said step up and give it a try.”

The movie bigwigs were immediately impressed by Cena’s audition. But the pro wrestler insisted he was only doing what he does “on a daily basis ...entertain people.”

He also credits what the people in La-La land refer to as his “clean-cut look ” for securing the starring role of the Marine.

“But I just like to think of it as lookin’ like me,” he added.

And Cena’s M.O. is his modesty, so he forgoes the bells and whistles of wrestling under a pseudonym.

“It’s just John Cena,” he said. “I’m just proud to be me.”

Which added to his excitement about last night’s hometown throw down at the Garden, because Cena had the opportunity to show his friends and family exactly what he is made of!

“My friends and family will all be there. It ’s going to be one of those momentous nights,” he said. “It’s one of the biggest pay-per-views that WWE has to offer, my family will be in the front row, it’s sold out and will be loud and intense!”

I saw the remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. They didnt get the original at all IMO.
The way the original does just enough to make u feel very uncomfortable without showing too much, for the first half of the film. Then explodes into sudden violence.
The remake had the hitcher blow her brains out! Then it all went downhill. It was just another OTT brainless horror film, made by people without enough imagination to make somthing original.

I want to see this film, but I've heard quite a few people say it's **** now

Yeah I was looking forward to seeing it. I saw the trailer and read a couple of reviews and thought it would be really good...but it was **** :(

I want to see that flick about the WWI pilots.




Brought the kids and a couple of their friends to see Open Season last week.

It sucked, but they liked it.

Also wouldn't mind seeing The Departed, although it looks a bit like just another Donnie Brasco.

New on DVD, The Notorious Bettie Page is a weak biopic

I finally got around to watching Saw, and I must admit the movie snob in me succumbed to the part of me that's attracted to trashy cinema. I've got to watch the sequel now before the last weekend in October, when the third movie comes to theatres...

Saw 2 is much better than Saw, except, there's not enough Jigsaw/ Dr. Phil stuff.

The notorious bettie page is not about bettie page, unfortunately, it's about censorship in america. someone should make a real film about the most beautiful woman who ever lived - the real bettie page, and have rose mcgowan play her, or better yet kate beckinsale

i watched an australian film the other night called puberty blues. it's pretty good, though somewhat depressing, it's all about how stupid and pointless it is to be a teenager, and the girls' moms are milfs.

I was a bit let down by Saw 2. I really enjoyed the first one, and will be seeing the third when it comes out.

Movies I saw recently:

Jackass Number 2 - A great movie to watch with a group of friends. Thought it was hilarious to watch these guys abuse themselves. Knoxville is crazy.

Inside Man - I loved this. It was different from the normal crime thriller. Every character was written in nicley and the acting all around was great.

This Bettie Page movie didn't seem to be about anything. It was surprisingly dull and the censorship courtroom stuff wasn't riveting or interesting at all.

It also didn't give Bettie much of a personality. It showed her as an abuse victim, someone naive, and free-minded but also simple-minded.

I'll definitely give Saw II a watch here soon.

Saw was the better movie

Saw II had the more satisfying twist

...although I did figure out Amanda's role quite early into the second film

I also thought the first saw was better, maybe because the idea of a jigsaw killer wasnt so interesting the second time around. Saw 2 was pretty good though.

i was really happy when i heard amanda was back in Saw 2, the scene with her in the first movie is probably my favorite part of the entire film.

" most people aren't very grateful to be alive, but not u, amanda, not any more " - Jigsaw/ Dr. Phil

she only has one line in the entire film, it's probably what gives her away in SAw 2
" he helped me "

also, it doesn't hurt either that shawnee smith is smokin hot

i watched the newer version of dawn of the dead last night, i figured that was a good way to spend helloween. anyway, i have to say i'm impressed with the film, great characters, good acting, excellent script. the first 10 or so minutes of the film is exactly the way i would have made it. damn good movie considering it doesn't even have kate beckinsale in it

Our whole family enjoyed Open Season quite a bit. We watched it today. It had lots of "in-jokes" for the grownups, a lot of sight gags, and good voicework by Martin Lawrence. I would give it 3-stars.

Well I saw a couple of movies the other day. Watched Glory Road on Starz. Its basically the basketball version of Remember the Titans and I liked it a lot. I also saw The Break Up and I thought that was pretty weak. Vince Vaughn made me laugh in almost every scene he was in though.

Saw some movies over Thanksgiving. I'll give a number ranking and explain if anyone's interested - feel free to give your opinion of the movies I watched. Didn't see any classics, that's for sure...

Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic - Made it 30 min. before turning it off. I was waiting for something humorous. She seems like, on talk shows and on SNL and on The Aristocrats, she would put out a nice stand-up concert film. Really bad. Can't give it a number rating since I didn't sit through it...

Bewitched - Bad script, poor choice in casting Samantha - Steve Carrell does such a good Uncle Arthur, though, they should have expanded his part. They shouldn't have done the "TV show within a movie" thing - play the damn thing straight... 4/10

The Forgotten - Julianne Moore, what were you thinking taking this movie which would have been discarded as a new Twilight Zone episode, let alone a feature length film? 3/10

Hostel - I'll see the sequel, but mainly to see if they do that one right. The "unfolding story" took a backseat to titties and partying - and then the torture scene where the dude falls on the bloody fingers and cuts off his own leg - that was laughable, not creepy. Some genuinely good moments with a promising script - hope the sequel is better. 4/10

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause - It takes the characters from the first and second film and has fun with them - but it's like a Disney classic sequel that goes straight to video like Lion King 1 1/2 - it's appealing to the eyes and it's pleasant enough - but it obviously has different writers than the first film, it's mainly for the kiddies, and the franchise has "jumped the shark" by adding a baby to the character list that now includes in-laws, former spouses and kids, elves, and "fictional" folks like the Tooth Fairy, Father Time, Mother Nature, and Jack Frost. 5/10

I saw Bewitched a couple summers ago and thought it was pretty bad. I dont even remember much about it except for the scene where Ferrell talks in spanish. I remember laughing at that and nothing much else really.

I thought the first 3/4 of Hostel was awful. It ended up being some softcore ****o. I did not expect that at all, and was let down. I enjoyed the last 30 minutes or so for its gore and humor. I think they can build on this and make a better sequel.
