the vo track was first removed from the original director's cut back in the late 80s/early 90s, tho it's also not present in the "final cut" version.

while poking around to find out what's different in this "final cut" from the original directors cut, I found this quote and thought I'd share.

Quote
Producer Herb Jaffe optioned it [blade runner movie] in the early 1970s, but Dick wasn't impressed with the screenplay: "Robert Jaffe, who wrote the screenplay, flew down here to Orange County. I said to him then that it was so bad that I wanted to know if he wanted me to beat him up there at the airport or wait till we got to my apartment."

Minority Report
I don't know why, but this movie never really looked that interesting to me. Being left alone in a tiny unit, you start scratching at the walls and decide fine I'll bloody watch the damn thing and see what the fuss was about.

So I actually quite enjoyed it. Except the part where Cruise was temporarily sightless and ate a mouldy sandwich, followed by a swig of what looked like milk from 1843. That part made me gag. Yeah, I almost threw up watching a guy pretend to choke on off food stuffs, yet I have no problem looking at pictures of real murder scenes.

I'd be interested to read the short story the movie was based on, apparently there's a few changes, as expected when they transfer book to film. Even though it was a 2 and a half hour movie, it kept me watching. I often find it difficult to sit down and concentrate on something for too long unless it's actually..good. And even though I caught on quickly to the whole thing where they were trying to trick the audience/Cruise about one character's involvement in the whole conspiracy, it was still interesting to see how it all played out. Maybe it would have been less enthralling had I read the story first..

Rapunzel: A Tangled Tale

Watched it the other day and in 3D version. I don't really want to pay extra 8 bucks just to watch the 3D version but so far Disney has yet to disappoint me with its quality.

I actually like this version as compared to the Brothers Grimm. Then again, I am a Disney fan freak so I may be a bit biased on this. Well, I thought the story was beautifully told and I love the characters and background designs. I like how they stick with the colours used in the Rococo period (all pastel and light).

Truly it was beautifully done and I actually didn't mind the singing bit. Oh, I also love Maximus, the horse big grin

How did it compare, cartooning style wise, to a Dreamworks pic like Shrek?

Well, if I were to compare it to Dreamworks' Shrek, yes Shrek has a great storyline but the character design (as in most of their human characters looked the same) and the animation was so-so. They improved alot when they did Kung Fu Panda.

Whereas, the execution of the animation style done in Rapunzel was smooth and great. There were times I thought I was watching it in 2D.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader

On the whole I enjoyed this movie and I was surprised how faithfully they were able to stay to the book but somehow it left me feeling a bit underwhelmed.

I mean it was better than just okay but it felt too much like a series of loosely connected episodes that, individually, didn't quite have enough grandure about them and, collectively, didn't have an engaging enough through-line and didn't build to as satisfying conclusion as I was expecting.

Maybe I'm biased because I enjoyed the book so much when I was a child but I would have happily accepted a longer film if they had used the extra time to flesh things out a bit more.

Speaking of Despicable Me, this weekend I went to see the other CGI movie which features a super villain as the protagonist: Megamind.

I wasn't expecting it to be all that good, partly because of Dreamwork's tendency to churn out as many misses as the do hits, but mostly because I figured that the only possible resolution of a family-friendly movie about a villain was
, especially if, as the trailers implied, the villain is one whose's evil schemes never succeed.

Not only was I right about the ending but it's hard to find a single original element in the film. So what I still don't really understand is why I like this movie so much.

While I can see that other people may not be overly impressed with this film, it was, for me, just the right mix of comedy, parody, moral/message, pop-culture references, homage/shout-outs, zanyness, and so forth.

I'm still not clear on exactly why none of Megamind's plans had ever come off (he didn't come across as an idiot,  his side-kick/minion wasn't incompetent, and all his gadgets & gizmos seemed to function exactly as intended) but that's about my biggest complaint this movie. (When the credits began to roll I was initially slightly disappointed that one minor loose-end hadn't been tidied up but—oh, me of little faith—that had been covered by the time the credits were over.)

I wouldn't rank it above How to Train Your Dragon or Toy Story 3 but for everything that it could have been but, thankfully, wasn't I'm giving Megamind a solid A.

It was cute, which for me is pretty good considering I don't care for Disney Princess movies. The songs weren't necessary though.

I saw this movie again, this time with a friend and not my boyfriend. And this time I loved it way more.

I assume the 'happy ending' was the original version where the voice over said that Rachael isn't programmed to 'die' after four years like the other Nexus 6 replicants.

What about Decker?  So, she gets to live forever, and he's screwed?  Awesome. roll eyes

Btw Faze, I have the Director's Cut on Laserdisk if you ever wanna come over and watch it. smile

My Dinner with Andre
I saw this for the first time the other day and still don't know what to think. I guess it's the kind of thing to reflect upon and watch again some time later, seeing what new insight can be found each time.

I just knew someone would bite. I actually thoroughly enjoyed it, even though the final shot could have been predicted by a retarded donkey.

Two reviews from me? Blasphemous I say!

Megamind
I you know me, I'm hardcore Pixar, pretty "meh" for DreamWorks, so for this review to exist with positive words is short of a miraculous occurrence. From the previews, I was pretty unconvinced about this film being worth a shit. I think they took parts of the film that weren't the best for the first trailer and stuck 'em together. I completely forgot about the film after that until my friend told me she'd seen it and that it was good. I went on a limb and took her word for it and saw it. I was surprised that I liked it. It was a superhero movie so it was action-packed but it had some heart-felt moments that actually worked (as opposed to almost every OTHER DreamWorks film where heartfelt moments don't make me give a shit). A pleasant and refreshing surprise from DreamWorks. Kudos for doin' something right.

A because who doesn't love a bad-ass blue dude with a giant head who loves classic rock that happens to be able to dance?

Tangled
It's a Disney priness movie. In CGI. You'd think they wouldn't go good together, but the film did work. The songs seemed out of place/superfluous/forced but the songs are almost all in the beginning, so you've got like twenty minutes of song and the rest of the film of adventure. Zachary Levi + any film = win. Also, Flynn= best "prince" ever IMO.

A- because the songs initially feel reeeeaallly corny and superfluous but Flynn alone made up for that.

TRON: Legacy.

I enjoyed it thoroughly. So the story's not that deep and somewhat generic, MEH! It looks awesome, the sound track is great, and there are all kinds of eye-candy in it. Stop being bitches and just enjoy it.

Tron: Legacy 3D
I agree with chays review but for one part, it is totally an allegory for God, The Devil, Jesus and the Virgin Mary... tongue
And I guess Daft Punk are like the 12 apostles or something.

Nothing mindblowing but Jeff Bridges is kewl, CLU-face is uncanny valley, but the rest is blacklight fetish fap material.
Also what was Olivia Wilde talkin' bout when she said in some interview her character was a strong influential role model or somesuch, nawww girl, you're just a sexy butt!
