Goldeneye WAS the best of his films, they have all gone drastically downhill since then....It just seems too formatted. Its definately time for a change. But I fear they are milking 007 dry, they should quit while they're ahead, or they'll be remembered for all the wrong reasons........

They should carry on making them, otherwise XXX will end up overshadowing it and no-one will remember the Bond films.  They sould do a few more with a new guy playing Bond, see how it goes and if it goes bad then think about stopping.

I wonder if they will follow up that idea of giving Halle Berry her little spin off thing.  The idea was to carry on story of Jinks (i think) in some more of her own films.

I seriously doubt that.

And by the way, Big Fish came out on DVD like a month ago.

I've said that I'm looking forward to Spiderman 2, but I saw the trailer yesterday and it made my eyes water.
      The re-make of the Stepford Wives also looks good.

This funny little image on View Askews Moviepoopshoot.com and newsaskew.com has made me want to see Green Hornet even more, not like I needed a better reason of course.



Plus I have seen the spidey 2 trailer about 20 times on TV today, god that cant come out quick enough.

I heard Kevin "I suck directing but I consider myself a good writer" would not direct Green Hornet. Too scary for him.

They're making a movie version of Memoirs of a Geisha!? Churrah! :happy dance:
And they're FINALLY letting out the new Chucky movie! I can't be alone in loving that little doll, can I? And I ought to buy that poster..
Once you see it, you'll know why I predict it'll be yanked and the title changed soon.

Well, a book would have to be very bad to be worse that a 2 minute trailer, but I agree, this thing looks just bad. And Will Smith doesn't raise my hopes.

I've also read that the movie is inspired by an original screenplay (I don't remember the name). So, they just revised the script, introduced some concepts from the book and called it "I, Robot" to raise the movie's profile. But that may just bbe a rumour, I'm not sure.

Yes, he is; but if he wasn't, this would kill him.

First they put Mork from Ork in The Bicentennial Man, and now this.  I'll just stick with Asimov's books, thank you very much.

Bicentennial man wasn't horrible.. It wasn't faithful to the book by any means of course >/ But it was watchable, at least..
Although that female robot made me want to gouge my eyes out.

I agree with him, he's not an action director. I consider him a bad director, but he has written some good scripts, so in my opinion he's better in low-budget small personal comedies.

Hmmm... having a look at the trailer, 'Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow' will either be a fun bit of Crimson Skies-esque cheesy kistch... or total bunk. It has the style, certainly. Go thirties/forties!

I will have to disagree with you there as I think the brief action sequences in thinks like Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Malrats and Dogma were all done as well as in most big action films. As being a bad director currently I would have to disagree with you as you can see great progression from the long un-cut clerks shots to the stuff he is doing today.
Though saying he is a good script writer I would have to agree....obviously!  tongue

Yeah, that fart joke was mind blowing.

But I'll agree with Dogma, I actually liked that movie.

I'm also looking forward into seeing the sequel to the Bourne Identity.  Yes, another spy film that's something we haven't seen in a while.

I also want to see Alien vs. Predator and Resident Evil 2.

I'm looking forward to King Arthur. Keira Knightley certainly great in the role of Guinivere, check it out. I did some nosing around IMDB and found out she'll be appearing in an adaptation of Pride & Prejudice next year with Matthew MacFadyen as Darcy. I'm sure she'll be great but Matthew McFayden from Spooks? weird. They're on dangerous teritory though considering how good the bbc mini series was and how recent. To add to the list of good books being made into films, there's HHGTTG. Looks like 2005 will be a good film year for movies, but it's always tricky when the books are so in depth to make a film that works.

I saw a trailer for The Terminal today and I wouldn't mind seeing it. I now don't have to worry about cost because I bought an UGC Unlimited card, so I can go as many times as I want.

Cabin Fever, bad? I thought it was a nice attempt to bring back the late-70s splatter. Eli Roth does sound like an enthuastic director, with some good references in his 'Cabin Fever'. Needless to say, it was a good change from the current status of mainstream Horror in the 'states.

I was dissapointed at first, but I understand its very hard to impress the Horror community nowadays. He took it well, and he should be proud to say that he made a decent modern Horror film.

Live Actors + CGI Everything else = Unique.
Angelina Jolie + Eyepatch = SEXY.
So yeah, I'm gonna go see that bad mofo.
As for the Ladykillers.. I dunno.. I liked it. I never saw the original, and most originals are better.. But on its own, I found it very enjoyable. Lovely soundtrack, and Tom Hanks is very funny.
A lot of people are complaining about the product placement in The Terminal.. But I honestly didn't notice it.. Being that they were in an airport, and if there's one thing airports are, they're commercial. Actually, I thought it was somewhat more realistic seeing "McDonalds" and "Barnes and Noble" rather that, say.. "BurgerJoint" and "Bookstop". Ads rooted the film in the real world and made it very real to me, I think.
EDIT: http://www.theonionavclub.com/feature/index.php?issue=4025  Some more info on Mike Judge's "3001".

Nature and animal movies are unfortunately a genre which have rarely success in the cinemas. I hope it could be a change with Jean-Jacques Anauld's latest adventure movie "TWO BROTHERS" is a very thrilling film about two tiger cubs which where separated.

I'm very much looking foward to I,Robot.

I've never read the short stories, which for me is a good thing, so I don't have to nag about everything like what some internet people are doing. I can go into the movie with an open mind and high expectations.
