And Bill Murray's delivery of "Revenge" is better than most other movies.


I liked the trailer, but I'm afraid Wes Anderson is building himself into a corner.  There can only be so many films about the reunion of fathers and sons in that quirkly tone that can be made.  I hope the movie turns out okay, though.  The trailer looks fun enough.

I just found out that Danny Elfman (the guy from my avatar, composer of the music for all Tim Burton's films except Ed Wood, singing voice of Jack Skelington in Nightmare Before Christmas) will be writing and performing all the Oompa Loompa songs in Burton's Charlie & The Chocolate Factory!  I was looking forward to the film before, but now I can barely contain my joy!

How many films about the reunion of fathers and sons in that quirky tone has he made? Counting this one, I would say one and a half, maybe. (Royal Tenenbaums was about more than that, and Bottle Rocket and Rushmore had nothing to do with it at all)

Well, I'd be willing to argue that Rushmore has that plot element in it:  Max must come to terms with the fact that his father isn't "amazing" and accept him for who he is.

I saw the new trailer to Bridget Jones 2 and it was really funny. (I haven’t seen the first one yet)

Fave clip is where she was calling her boyfriend telling him on the phone that she had fantastic sex with him last night and he told her that he is in a meeting with some very important people and his speakerphone was on. I must see the first movie before I go and see the second one.

That's like one tenth of the movie. Wes Anderson's movies are usually about a lot of things so I wouldn't say he's building himself into a corner. I hope The Life Aquatic will not be an exception.

Except for the notable exception of Tim Burton's offering, i'm not exactly a big fan of the numerous films based on DC's Batman franchise. Having seen the preview of 'Batman Begins' on Film 2004 today, i find myself quite looking forward to it.

The cast is exceptional, with special mention going to Sir Michael Caine, who plays Bruce Wayne's Butler. The film is being directed by Christopher Nolan of Memento fame, so hopefully he won't make a hash of it like so many directors before him.

Many directors = Joel Schumacher.

And I agree, this movie has all the potential to be great. But right now, after watching the preview, I have to say that the comic book based film I'm most looking forward is Sin City. That movie looks great and the cast is even better.

In the near future I'd like to see:
Sky Captain and the World of Tommorow (ok, I know it's been out as while now, but I am still fixin' to see it)
Wilby Wonderfull(A Canadian movie that's getting limited release *sigh*, it's going to be tough to arange seeing that)
Finding Neverland (Johny Depp as the creator of Peter Pan, not a documentry of the ill concieved theme park Micheal Jackson used to lure small children into his sick clutches)

Also, I have no doubt that Tim Burton's version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is going to rock socks.

Team America isn't animated. It's puppets.

I'm looking forward to Ron Howard's film adaptation of 'The Da Vinci Code', so long as they get the casting right. I think they should just avoid A-list actors. The hype from the book will be enough to guarantee great box-office takings.

Alien Vs Predator all the way, it only came out just recently where i am, but i havent seen it, and i really want to. Predator is my favourite movie character to date (unless a futurama movie comes out), and the alien trilogy is so cool...im just hopeing that its not a big let down like Freddy Vs Jason was.

I'm sorry to tell you this, but AVP was a bigger let down than Freddy vs. Jason.  At REEL, they posted AVP under the category, "Burn the negative".

I wanna see saw, dammit! But I never get time to go see movies.

On another note, I saw Resident Evil 2 a couple of weeks ago. It was fucking shite. Biggest. Letdown. Ever.

RE2 was more entertaining than AVP.  RE2 gets bonus points because it is a zombie movie and I like zombie movies.

Shaun of the Dead was also really good.

I just saw FOX's trailer for the their CGI movie, ROBOTS, which is coming out next year.

It features the voices of Mel Brooks, Halle Berry, Robin Williams and other stars.

It is very messed up that FOX hates Futurama and yet promotes other sci fi stuff featuring robots.  I, Robot and ROBOTS, it would be cool if ROBOTS had a reference to Bender like a cameo or something.

I always felt RE:2 was going to suck even back when they first started making it. The first one was terrible because it's hard to make a good movie from sup par video game story line. Does anyone remember what happened when they turned Mario Bro's and Wing Commander into movies; same results has RE:2.

I still need to see Shaun of the Dead.

After seeing the new Spongebob trailer, it's renewed my faith in the movie, and looks like classic Spongebob. I can't wait for that, it looks really funny...

New Trailer for The Life Aquatic

It's interesting that Owen Wilson barely appears in these trailers. Especially since Wes Anderson said that he has a biggest role in this movie than in any other of his films.

That new CGI film; "Robots" looks great from the trailer. You can tell they've taken inspiration from Futurama for some of the backgrounds. Robbin Williams does the voice of one of the robots, and although he looks funny, I can't help but think his personality is very similar to the Genie in Aladdin...

I have seen some clips of Team American on TV today. I am not sure if I want to see it though. I might need to learn more about this movie.

The "Team America" clips I've seen on tv and online don't seem to be very funny.  Trey Parker's horrible voice for Kim Jong-Il just makes half of Il's lines undecipherable.  But maybe, by some bizarre twist of fate, the movie will be good.  At the looks of the trailers, I doubt it.

Bad decision - the Fantastic Four movie will be directed by the same guy who did the film "Taxi."  Also, I hear the costumes are gonna suck.

Just saw Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse yay Milla! twas very cool, any word on a third? if so, im soooo looking foward to that, and for the third time Saw looks awsome.

EDIT: just thinking, can someone who is familiar with the RE games explain to me where the movies lie in terms of the games? is there even a character called Alice in any of them, i know theres Jill Valentine in 3, but im a little confused.

@chay's head:

The movies have little to do with the games, beyond the fact that they both contain zomies, the licker monster, Umbrella corp., and the Nemesis. There are several conceptually similar ideas to the games, but they don't really fit in anywhere.

That movie sucked badly. Even worse than the first, which was pretty crap compared to the games. They should leave this franchise well alone.

What the hell is saw?
TNUK: It's amazing what Hollywood can do. Amazing. They can take a great gaming franchise, blow millions of dollars on two movies that barely have anything to do with the games, bomb at the box office, and be beaten by a zombie movie who's entire budget was the same as Resident Evil's catering cost.
Yes, I'm talking about Shaun of the Dead.
