Hollywood seems hell bent on turning everything that’s ever worked into a movie-from pointless sequels to extend franchises well past their primes, to pointless adaptations of TV serials (like the one being mooted by John Stamos for Full House), to even more pointless and silly remakes. But, one series I really, really hope they don’t […]
What do I think? The lab looks bigger…definitely more number of suits, RDJ again looking the part, cool new gadgetry. All in all, a step up on the previous movie while still maintaining the familiar look and ambiance.Only doubt I have about the movie, though, is Jon Favreau. Make no mistake, I absolutely loved the […]
Bigger, better, kick-ass! Was that the Scorponk theme, from the first movie, played out on electric guitar I hear in the beginning? Linkin Park are rumored to be scoring the movie with Hans Zimmer, so I won’t be all that surprised…
Just been crawling around on the net, and what do I find? Megan Fox auditioning for her part in Transformers! And no, contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t just include her turning up–the poor girl actually had to recite some lines too…a task she had trouble with in the film too…but who’s complaining?
I’ve never been a G.I. Joe fan, but when news of the in-development movie came along, I got a little excited at the prospect of watching a good action movie. After seeing this Superbowl spot for the movie, I’ve gotta say, I’ve given up all hope of a good actioner. Lines like “What did you […]
Now that I’ve (almost) accepted the fact that I won’t be seeing one of the best movies of 2008 win the Best Picture Oscar, I can finally put up the Oscar nominee list… Best Picture“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”“Frost/Nixon”“Milk”“The Reader”“Slumdog Millionaire” Best DirectorDavid Fincher, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”Ron Howard, “Frost/Nixon”Gus Van Sant, […]
In a move that could see the Jason Bourne series becoming Universal’s answer to the Bond series, Universal Studios has signed an agreement with the Ludlum estate that gives them exclusive rights to the Jason Bourne character and first look at other Ludlum novels. This move paves the way for future installment in the lucrative […]
Variety magazine reports that the soundtrack for Chris Nolan’s masterpiece, The Dark Knight, won’t be eligible for an Oscar nomination. The score, credited to Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, has been disqualified because too many other people were also listed as composers on the score cue sheets.Besides Zimmer and Howard, three others were listed […]
The first teaser trailer for Angels and Demons is here. Check it out…. Looks pretty impressive, and from what I can gather, Tom Hanks has done away with the crazy-no-sideburns-hairstyle he had in The Da Vinci Code. I just hope the movie’s as good as that….
As the wait for Bond 22, Quantum of Solace, enters its final phase, I decided to listen to all the 22 themes again and list out, what I feel, are the top 5 Bond themes. A word of caution though, the major criterion for judging is how well the song stands up on its own. […]
In a move, which I believe, has been taken to quell some of the anti-Potter sentiment, Warner Bros has released a new, really slick Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer. Check it out…. The movie comes out on July 17, 2009, after it was pushed back by more than 6 months.
I just happened to stumble upon some set pics from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson. Who/what is that? Elementary, my dear Watson. That, is Robert Downey dressed up as Holmes. Now, call me weird or what you may, but THAT, to me, looks more […]
Even Rob Schneider can act. Sometimes, that is. But what really makes an actor great? For me, it’s all about subtlety. No over-the-top histrionics. Just those subtle nuances and character traits the good actors come up with for their roles. Oh, and of course, variety. Any actor can play the same kind of role over […]
The teaser poster for the film adaptation of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons has been released. Directed by Ron Howard, with Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon, the film is being projected as a sequel to The Da Vinci Code, in contrast with the book version, which was a prequel.The poster looks really […]
The video for the new Bond theme song, Another Way to Die, has been released. Clocking in at 4:25, the video doesn’t feature much footage from the movie, save for a quick clip of Bond walking in the desert, which we also got to see in the trailer.Though highly stylized and visually very spectacular, it […]
Another Way To Die, the theme song for the new Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, has finally been released. Performed by Jack White (of The White Stripes) and Alicia Keys it is the first duet ever in the history of James Bond soundtracks. Click here to listen to it online. The track will be released […]
The theatrical trailer of the next James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace. Clocking in at 2 minutes 21 seconds, it is a direct continuation of the teaser trailer and expands on the role of Dominic Greene, the villain, and the new Bond girl, Camille, while also ramping up the action.When Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, The […]
I ran into this poll (obviously fuelled by the posthumous Oscar buzz that Ledger is generating) on gaurdian.co.uk. I voted (in the affirmative, if you must know), and was more than just surprised by the results-I was alarmed! The results showed that it was a close race (59.4% for, 40.6 against), which really got me […]
