House, M.D. will be returning next year in the form of a TV-movie crossover with Dexter.

Not really, but I would pay to watch that movie.

Just out of interest...

I really hope they don't turn Maleficent into a Unloved!Misunderstood!DrivenToEvil! villain.  Some villains work because they were driven to evil and were screwed over by the world around them (such as Ultimecia from FF8, whose story is down quite subtly), and some work because they are straightup, evil bitches, like Melly who are evil because of pure sadism.  Seriously, Melificent spends the whole of the movie being the biggest troll ever.   The fact that one of the characters is her "aunt who doesn't like her" is already shaving points of her badassery.  Wussify a lame Disney villain, not the Queen of them all.

So, I'm assuming you guys saw all the new Marvel movie logos revealed at SDCC over the weekend? Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy.

The logos are all available online, plus write-ups of the exclusive Iron Man 3 footage. Think there are pics of his new crimson and silver armor too.

That is terrible news. There is no way that can possibly be a good film. When will the world realise that some things should just be left alone...

I'm very sad now.

Yeah, I agree with SoS. One of my friends and I saw a poster for the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo when we went to the movies a few weeks ago, and she said she wished they'd make a sequel to it. "He could get lost again!" she proposed, somewhat lamely.

Pixar has never disappointed with a sequel. I want to see how they do this.

I love Cars, but even I thought Cars 2 kind of sucked. But as long as they keep Larry the Cable Guy away from Finding Nemo 2: Electric Boogalo, I guess it'll be ok.

I wasn't anywhere even close to as big a fan of Finding Nemo as pretty much every other human on the planet was, so I'm sure I won't give a shit about the sequel.

One time I went to the movies with some friends some acquaintances people that I met at school and I happened to see them at the movie theater and so I got a ticket to see the film with them and I sat next to them when they went inside

The internet has given us many good things, but also gives us anonymity, which means people can act crazy as shit just because some critics didn't like The Dark Knight Rises. It is a little scary how confined people are to their computers and how there are no repercussions for acting like a douche on the internet. It's sad. (And I know this isn't a new thing but it is something people are currently talking about).

Perhaps not.  Wachowskis have a decent track record, and directed by Run, Lola, Run director too.

Trailer sounds good.

Although.....

If The Hobbit as a book has enough material for three films then surely LOTR should have been a nonilogy or whatever the word would be if it existed.

It's not that there's really enough material for much more than 3 hours of screen time, it's that people want to make as much money at the box office and from DVD sales as possible.

To be honest, LOTR could have been cut down quite a bit without impacting the story that was told for the worse. I mean, they'd already altered the story quite a bit by excising large chunks of material. What was left was pretty bloated and could have been paced faster.

I really hope that the Hobbit films don't go the same way.

I personally thought LOTR should have been six movies.

Even though this is an obvious money grab, I still think it's a good thing. Having the story fleshed out more wouldn't hurt.

Agreed.  I'm a a sucker for long, richly detailed movies, but I appreciate that some people prefer a tighter film with faster pacing.  Fortunately there are often extended/Director's Cut versions available after the original run winds down.

I have the Lord of the Rings Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition DVDs. I will never understand how the shorter versions of the film without any of the extra scenes managed to be anywhere near as good.

I honestly prefer the theatrical version. I'm not really a huge fan of how Saruman's death was handled, not to mention the random addition of Old Man Willow during the Two Towers.

Perhaps the worst and most pointless addition is in ROTK when Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli have to deal with an avalanche of skulls. Why, Mr Jackson? Why?

Overall I like the extended versions better, though.

I haven't seen those because the regular editions were already way too long to watch in one sitting. Seriously, anything over two and a half hours is really pushing it in terms of expecting me to be able to stay sat down and not need to pause the DVD to get up and eat something or excrete something or have a bit of a fidget. Which is why I ended up taking bathroom breaks during the films as I saw them in cinemas, which may have contributed to my opinion that they should have been shorter.

I just felt that a lot of attention was lavished on scenes that didn't need it, and a lot of scenes that shouldn't have been cut were cut.

I personally thought LOTR should have been six movies.

Six (or even eight) 2-hour movies would have been nice. Enough detail and enough of a relatively short runtime to allow me to enjoy them properly.

The extended LOTR movies actually work quite well on the seperate disks they come on. But those disks sure aren't films in their own right.

Peter Jackson has a lot to answer for. Nowadays ALL big movies insist on being total bum numbers (by which I mean things that make bums numb, not some weird buttock counting system).

This is 40 looks like it should be pretty good. I really liked Knocked Up, and I love Paul Rudd, and all of the Judd Apatow movies I've seen thus far have been at least mildly entertaining. Those are all excellent signs, no?

The Zero Theorem is the new hopefully-not-going-to-fall-into-development-hell movie by Terry Gilliam. It was just announced that Christoph Waltz will play the lead in this return to sci-fi and dystopian fiction for Gilliam. I'm very much so looking forward to it!

Also, there's rumors of Gilliam doing "his next film" with Johnny Depp and David Walliams, to be filmed in Budapest. Could this be the same film? I could only hope so!
