Who took "boner" out of the title of this thread?

I don't think Jurassic Park needs a reboot. I think the original still holds up, especially visually, I think it's great. And it's a good adaption of the novel,

I agree with the original holding up and being good, but the novel was way better, with way more in it. Did you read the movie's novelisation or the actual novel? 'Cause the actual novel in it had some truly awesome stuff that was just ignored completely.
I think the film makers were just going for a PG-13 rating and the don't-bore-the-audience-with-long-monologues-on-chaos-theory-when-they-came-to-see-dinosaurs-running-amok rating.  I think it's about as good as could be done given the amount of material that needed to be compressed into two hours.

The worst part about the second movie is Vince Vaughn's character.  He single-handedly caused all that havoc, but who does dino-justice find?  Not him.  I like to think he was shoved out of the helicopter as the other good guys were being evacuated.  It's also something of a compendium of disaster movie cliches.

The movie I think needs a rework is the third one.  It's not as rubbish as the second, but some of the story just doesn't make sense and is not at all necessary, like killing one of the T. Rexes.  If anything, that movie needs a de-boot to coalesce more with JP canon.

Ah, that'll teach me to read inside people's spoiler tags before responding to them in future. Sorry Spacedal. I was preoccupied with responding to the Bullying thread, and at the same time attempting to combat a rising tide of stupidity in a chatroom.

Heh, no worries.

I believe Nix made this thread more medically erect than before, I still like it.

Anyway, technically not a real movie but a great trailer nonetheless, here's some keywords to help you decide to click it or not: "Tricia Helfer", "sexy", "assassins".

What a facial.  Think about the guy who's playing the lead role; he takes the backseat to the guy doing the narration.  Ouch...

Looking forward to John Michael McDonaghs (brother of Martin, who wrote/directed In Bruges one of my favourites from recent years) film The Guard.
Brendan Gleason as an Irish Garda Sargeant and Don Cheadle as a smart FBI guy set in Ireland, they team up to find a shipment of drugs.

Here's some Sundance interview with a few clips:

Brendan Gleason is one of my favorite actors.  He's one of those guys who's been in a ton of films & you immediately recognize, but can't remember his name.  And he picks good roles; I can't remember seeing him in a really bad one...

And an exploding helicopter?  And a car chase?  And a scene where the good guy turns to the bad guy and right before he kills him, says something "cool" to the camera?  roll eyes

I'll check it out.

I'd watch that.

Daniel Craig doesn't look the part of a cowboy. At all. Neither does Ford, but he can pull it off more than Craig can an honestly... they couldn't have made Pirates vs. Ninjas first? Or will that we the sequel? I'm so lost on Hollywood anymore.

A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun.

Sounds awesome.

Didn't realize Hobo With A Shotgun had been posted, still though I think its worthy of another mention.

I'm surprised I missed this direct to DVD release: Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus.  It stars Urkel, the Doctor from Voyager, and the Mega Shark from Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.

To be fair, the title of the movie isn't actually Cowboys Vs. Aliens, it's Cowboys AND Aliens.

It could be a different character played by the same CGI shark.

The real question is: who would win in a fight, crocosaurus or dinocroc?

I don't think I actually care that much to be honest.  Although I did always want to see Lake Placid.

The idea of a Megaladon has always intrigued me though.... a massive predator of that size would be terrifying.... even though after watching the trailers I doubt it ever jumped out of the prehistoric ocean and took bites of low flying 747s.... roll eyes

PRODUCTION BEGINS IN NEW ZEALAND ON THE HOBBIT

In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit…

 Wellington, NZ, March 21, 2011—Production has commenced in Wellington, New Zealand, on “The Hobbit,” filmmaker Peter Jackson’s two film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s widely read masterpiece.

 “The Hobbit” is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

 The two films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. Filming will take place at Stone Street Studios, Wellington, and on location around New Zealand.

 “The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

 Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum.

 Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

 Martin Freeman takes the title role as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen returns in the role of Gandalf the Grey. The Dwarves are played by Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), Ken Stott (Balin), Graham McTavish (Dwalin), William Kircher (Bifur) James Nesbitt (Bofur), Stephen Hunter (Bombur), Rob Kazinsky (Fili), Aidan Turner (Kili), Peter Hambleton (Gloin), John Callen (Oin), Jed Brophy (Nori), Mark Hadlow (Dori) and Adam Brown (Ori). Reprising their roles from “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy are Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Andy Serkis as Gollum and Elijah Wood as Frodo. Jeffrey Thomas and Mike Mizrahi also join the cast as Dwarf Kings Thror and Thrain, respectively. Further casting announcements are expected.

 “The Hobbit” is produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, alongside Carolynne Cunningham. Executive producers are Ken Kamins and Zane Weiner, with Philippa Boyens as co-producer. The Oscar-winning, critically acclaimed “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, also from the production team of Jackson and Walsh, grossed nearly $3 billion worldwide at the box office. In 2003, “The Return of the King” swept the Academy Awards, winning all of the 11 categories in which it was nominated, including Best Picture – the first ever Best Picture win for a fantasy film. The trilogy’s production was also unprecedented at the time.

 Among the creative behind-the-scenes team returning to Jackson’s crew are director of photography Andrew Lesnie, production designer Dan Hennah, conceptual designers Alan Lee and John Howe, composer Howard Shore and make-up and hair designer Peter King. Costumes are designed by Ann Maskrey and Richard Taylor.

 Taylor is also overseeing the design and production of weaponry, armour and prosthetics which are once again being made by the award winning Weta Workshop. Weta Digital take on the visual effects for both films, led by the film’s visual effects supervisor, Joe Letteri. Post production will take place at Park Road Post Production in Wellington.

 “The Hobbit” films are co-produced by New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television licensing being handled by MGM. The two films are planned for release in late 2012 and 2013, respectively.

I should have but apparently I didn't. The last I had heard was that Del Toro had to pull out (of directing but continued to contribute to the writing) but hadn't seen anything since about a replacement director.

So, in effect, the movies have been delayed *so* long that all the commitments which prevented Jackson from being able to direct when the project was initially announced have now run their course and he is available to direct again. Ha, classic!

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.
