Apparently he produced the whole film by selling his car for four grand.

Dane DeHaan (who played Andrew in the awesome Chronicle) has been confirmed to be playing Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the first one. It was less of The Amazing Spiderman, and more of The Mediocre Spiderman.

Well, if they use every adjective that's been used to describe him in the title of any of his comic series...The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avenging Spider-Man, The Astonishing Spider-Man, The Spectacular Spider-Man, The Sensational Spider-Man, The Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, The Ultimate Spider-Man, The Megalomaniacal Spider-Man...

Ya, there's a lot.

New Man of Steel trailer.

Tom Cruise in Oblivion looks nice and futuristic-ey.

I wasn't into the first half of the Man of Steel trailer, the second half looked better. I mean it could be good and do the impossible by making boring as fuck Superman an interesting character. I won't hold my breath.

Oblivion looked cool too.

That's what I said. It's like a mix of Transformers, Portal, Godzilla, and a bunch of other cool movies.

Also it's the exact voice actor that did GLaDOs, so cool. smile

Del Toro's love letter to monster movies really caught me by surprise. I wasn't expecting it to look this cool and fun. I mean... GLaDOS. That's the actual voice actor and everything. Apparently he got permission from Valve to use the same voice, though I'm not sure how reliable my source is.
But yeah. I love Godzilla and the craziness of this plot excites me. Plus it's got some nice Lovecraftian undertones which will help tide me over until Del Toro finally gets the funding together to make At the Mountains of Madness.

I think giant monster movies are going to be the next big Hollywood trend what with this and the new Godzilla movie in production (that's reportedly taking more of a Godzilla beating the shit out of other monsters approach than the last remake did).

If you enjoy Lovecraftian based films cyber_turnip, I recently discovered that John Carpenter's work on The Thing was actually the first film in a set trilogy based on themes from Lovecraft's work.  The other two films, I believe, are called Prince of Darkness and Into the Mouth of Madness respectively.  None of these three films seem similar in most notions, except that they all express similar underlying themes.  I happened to watch the second two films after discovering these truths, and although I cannot say they are great films, I did enjoy watching them to certain degrees.  The third movie in particular is particularly interesting and ends on a strange recursive note.  You might enjoy checking them out.

When is this going to be on the Syfy channel? They just used GLaDOS's voice to get people to see it. This looks like a Transformers shit sandwich, I will wait for the Rifftrax version.

I adore The Thing; it's one of my favourite films.
I saw Into the Mouth of Madness recently and whilst not exactly a good film, it was very interesting. The whole thing is mental - and yes, full to the brim of Lovecraft.
I'll definitely check out the other one, thanks for the tip!

I thought Prince of Darkness was the weakest of Carpenter's Apocalypse films...

Whilst I'm not sure I'd called Mouth of Madness 'good', it manage to achieve a certain tone that a lot of straight Lovecraft adaptations failed to reach. I kinda like it.

Anybody give a flying fuck about a new RIDDICK movie?
Well fuck you, I do. Especially since it's reported to be a smaller, grittier movie, like the first one (Pitch Black) rather than the overblown nonsense that was the sequel.

I never saw the first film, only the second.  Is it worth seeing Pitch Black, given that I've already watched Chronicles?

Uh... Yes. Absolutely yes. Actually, put Chronicles completely out of your mind. Pitch Black is a completely different kind of movie. It's a low-budget sci-fi horror thriller thrown together in the Australian outback, owing more to films like Dead Calm and Predator than the kind of large-scale Star Wars stuff that the second one attempts to emulate. Pitch Black is a gem. I first went to see it when it was in the cinema and I had no idea what it was about. Best thing I think Vin Diesel's ever done... I know that isn't saying much, but it is awesome. Really grounded, human sci-fi horror.

Also it had that chick from Farscape in it.

To be honest, all of Vin Diesel's movies are all eh, kind of okay.  I guess.

Except Pitch Black, which is awesome.
Also, yeah - Claudia Black makes everything cooler. Although I think that film was pre-Farscape when she wasn't known.

Nah, Farscape was already out, because I remember watching a SciFi channel first look of the movie before it came out.

Also, it's an okay horror movie, but it's still kind of eh, kind of okay... especially cause the organisms on the planet are kind of retarded and look pretty stupid kind of.... also I don't know what that scene with the glow worms was, but I suspect it could have been an advertisement for masturbatement creme. :3

The organisms looked like the result of a Xenomorph having gestated from a bat.

I maintain that it is the greatest film ever made, after many others.

I'd say it was pretty okay and most probably pretty watchable. :3

Edit: Oh, and now I read your other posts too.  Originally I just saw Vin Diesel's name maybe so I said that random fact about Farscape, but I dunno.  Anyways, I'd probably recommend Pitch Black for viewing.  Unlike coldy here though, I was actually looking forward to the film when it came out, because the trailers they made for it were about 10 times more awesome than the movie turned out to be.  It also might be Vin Diesel's best movie.... after Saving Private Ryan or something I guess, maybe.

Overblown trailers do have a way of spoiling neat little low-budget flicks. Ignoring the fact that it's Vin Diesel, who since became a big-time star; if you watch it from the perspective of it being an offbeat independent film I find it's really great. Perhaps I'm biased because of how overtly Australian it all is. Vin Diesel and Cole Hauser are pretty much the only yanks in it.

Why would someone build a wrinkly terminator?
Have they sent him back to kill John Connor in his old folks home?

Arnold built himself up again but compared to Sylvester Stallone, Arnold is just a wrinkly exterminator. But, the movie plot is that John Connor stole Skynet and started a huge game of volleyball that only John Connor wanted to play. So Skynet got pissed and started killing people because it does not like volleyball.

tl;dr John Connor grows up to be Arnold, and not the dude in the Judgement Day.

The only appetising name on that list is Ricky Gervais. He's funnier then Tina Fey, who I find to be quite unfunny compared to other funny people. And since when did Ray Liotta do comedy?

I might well end up being in that film.

They're filming near where I live and they're looking for extras.

Anyway, Gervais is a good fit, I think. He's got a good relationship with Jim Henson, having appeared on Sesame Street a few times and having had a cameo in the last Muppet movie (that was cut).

The Fast and Furious 6 trailer that just played during the Super Bowl looks to be pretty good.
