I'm more concerned about the fact pretty much..all the recent movies have SUCKED. I'm not going to say Pierce Brosnan was the worst bond, because really I'm not sure if it was so much his fault as the fact the material he was working with was just so incredibly weak.

Apparently they're trying to take it back towards a 'darker' Bond, which usually works. You could kind of see that direction when Connery was bond, and definately when Dalton was (by the way, I've never really seen why people said he was the worst. License to kill wasn't that great mainly because they just made it into a revenge story...even then though, he did fight ninjas at one point. So thats at least ONE good thing about it..)

edit: I'd forgotten all about that list of the top 100 quotes. At least one was completely unintentional, "I'm walking here! I'm walking here!" was ad-libbed by Dustin Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy when an actual cab cut him off.

...wasn't Casino Royale originally a movie with 7 James Bonds?

Six of them went to a heavenly spot...the other one went to a place where its terribly..hot!


And I've heard that story about the "I'm walking here!" line in just about every class I've had with a teacher that likes movies.

Yeah, Timothy Dalton wasn't too bad but he's no Sean Connery or Roger Moore. My worst Bond actor was George Lazenby. Don't get me started... Also, the recent Bond movies have sucked and it seems because of the screenplay, direction, and other behind the scenes factors and not the actual actors themselves. Although, that scene with Halle Berry Big Grin ...

One of my favorite quotes is from Casablanca at the end after Rick shot the dude and the cop was covering for him and he said;

"Round up the usual suspects."
Peace.

Not only is Sylvester Stallone making a Rocky VI (check for that a couple of posts down) but he making a comeback as Rambo.

I've never seen On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but from what I've heard...again, the script didn't sound like it was that wonderful either.

Bond gets married? Hell the idea of a revenge quest plotline made more sense than that.

that scene with Halle Berry


Which in itself was just a redoing of a scene from...Thunderball, I think.

I haven't even bothered to go rent die another day.

Yeah. It was a spoof movie with Peter Sellers in it, made partially because of some legal thing involving the rights to the novel.

Same reason "Never say Never again" was made. Both just kind of exist outside the generally accepted line of Bond films.

edit: Oh wait. The scene in die another day was a reference to one from Dr. No and not Thunderball.

Here comes the part were everyone just dies a little on the inside, screaming at infinite decibels inside their head.

I'll have to settle with the lesser of two evils, and go with Anderson.

Why can't directors leave the good video games away from Tinseltown? Don't they realize by now that they only f*** things up?

(sighs) Anyway, here's new about the producers already signing up for a Saw III.

You have to be kidding me, right?

I mean, the ending to Saw 2 was both terribly cheesy, and you could also see it from about 15 minutes into the movie.

For those of you that Saw the first one, and don't really care to see the second one, I shall spoil it for you in this paragraph:

spoiler (highlight to read):
Donnie Wahlburg is a cop. He has a son. His son and him get into a fight. His son runs away. Donnie (let's call him Lt. Pig) finds Jigsaw, the killer from the first movie. Jigsaw tells Lt. Pig to sit down and listen to his story, because he has his son. In Jigsaw's lab or whatever, they find a bunch of monitors showing a house with all of these people in it (one of them being Lt. Pig's son, and another being Amanda, the former heroin addict from the first film that got out of that crazy head contraption). The people in the house all breathed in some sort of nerve gas that slowly kills them.

Anyway, they're fighting amongst each other. One guy gets shot in the face by a trap, another burned alive. One girl dies of the poison. One girl bleeds to death in a really creepy way. One dude kills another guy because he's crazy. Turns out that, in order to get the safe open where the antidotes are for the gas or whatever, they all have numbers on the back of their necks in different colors, which, in the order of a rainbow, is the combination.

Anyway, everyone finds out that they're there because they were all unfairly busted by Lt. Pig. And Lt. Pig's son is there, so people are pissed off. Then everyone dies except for Amanda, Lt. Pig's son and the crazy guy. Amanda and Lt. Pig's son stick together, end up in the room from the first movie (where everyone from the first movie is dead). Lt. Pig's son kills the crazy

A bit before all this, Lt. Pig is interrogating John/Jigsaw and beating the crap out of him. The police find the location of where the feeds are coming from on the monitors, and go there. However, from what I understand, the stuff that was displayed on the monitor happened hours before it was actually being displayed, and at another location that looks exactly the same (what a coincidence). So the cops go to the fake location, and Lt. Pig kidnaps John/Jigsaw (who happens to be doing this because he tried to kill himself but then realized how life is so precious and everything), and takes him to the real location. Lt. Pig gets there, and goes into the room from the first movie. Only the dead people from the first movie are there. He sees someone in the bathtub, who is wearing a mask. That person jumps out and stabs him with a needle. Lt. Pig wakes up, finds a tape recorder, and it turns out that it is Amanda who did it, and has been a follower of John ever since he "saved her" or some bullsh** like that. And she leaves him there to die. He screams like a little bitch, and you see John in the car (who is dying of both Cancer and a lot of bad wounds Lt. Pig gave him) laughing. But it was so cheesy because Amanda was like "I'm taking over John's place when he dies and you will be my first test subject." So f***ing lame.

And then the police find Lt. Pig's son safe in a..well...time lock safe, breathing in oxygen from a mask and such.


IF they make a sequel, it's going to suck. Hard.

I was hoping the second one would flop, and I could scam the studio out of the licensing to it, then make my ideal remake of Saw (which I haven't seen interestingly enough).

Heres the concept. It's just two hours of a guy in a room, basically yelling out flaws and gaping inconsistancies in the serial killers plans, mocking his M.O., and just...yeah, it's a two hour long filmed argument with nothing else happening.

I got the idea when I saw the trailer for the first one, and wanted to howl at my television "No, bone is stronger than that, if the saw can cut bone it could probably be used on the chain. Furthermore a self-amputation without anaesthetic would be nearly impossible, you'd pass out from blood loss or sheer pain". Normally I'm not that guy, the one that harps on movie inconsistances...but...really, thats just pushing it. Read anything about 19th century battlefield medicine, the only reason it worked without anaesthetic was because the patient wasn't preforming it on HIMSELF.

Then I heard the "omg big twist" basically involved assuming the audience has no clue how a revolver works. (The way it was described to me was...yeah, they open the cyilinder up, and the bullets have very obviously not been fired..or something, I forget.)

Then the sequel came out, and I wanted it to be called "Saw 2: Nerve gas does not work that way". And then after reading a massive bunch of spoilers...yeah alot of the stuff was just so convoluted it made the movie sound like a horror movie where the bad guy is some kind of james bond villain. If the third one has some kind of laser I will not be shocked.

Also, for everyone down about video game movies....So far Silent Hill looks like it's actually going to be GOOD. Which isn't terribly shocking since..those games already draw heavily from movies/horror novels and short stories. Instead of most game to movie translations where by the nature of the source material, it needs to rely on action to some degree, Silent Hill is basically the opposite in every way. Half the point of it was more atmosphere and suggestion.

The filmmakers have also said in interviews that while they're using CG to some degree, most of the effects will be manual. Which really alleviated alot of my concerns, as...yeah, you can't get that filthy, grimy look that was so prevelant using only CG. It just wouldn't really work.

It's also basically confirmed the movie will have pyramid head...if they do that correctly, it's already worth buying a ticket.

The only part I'm...I guess concerned about...is theres one production shot released showing what
spoiler (highlight to read):
I ASSUME is supposed to be Alyssa. Looks about the right age, has the exact clothing.
..and I really, really hope half the movie won't rely on that whole "pale, spooky looking little girl" theme thats been popping up so often.

Also theres one of...what looks like a woman desperately trying to claw her way out of a gigantic plastic bag. I cannot for the life of me think of what this would be correlated to in the games (the movies apparently supposed to draw from elements of SH1 and 2...2 was genius and 1 freaked me out so badly I never even finished it, so thats pretty nice)...but it just looked so...I guess baffling and insane that it could very very easily fit in. I don't know if it's supposed to be something involving the
spoiler (highlight to read):
Nightmare/"otherworld"/"Dark" Silent Hill
because it looks pretty clean...no rusted gratings in sight. But again it's just a production shot, it's hard to tell.

I'll probably be disappointed. But what I hope for is that I won't be AS dissappointed as I could be.

Are you sure about that, because it's based off the first game, and PH pwned hard only in the second. What IS confirmed is the totally awesome opening fence/dead end scene...you know...



One day, you're walking in an ally, and then you get attacked by all these scary dudes. But then you wake up in a coffee shop with a hot babe as a cop, so it's pretty much all a dream, right? Tell that to the giant winged beast that just came through the window.
Sharpshooter005 11-07-2005 11:47 AM
It's been said in pretty much every article written by anyone who saw the set or interview, that yes theres a pyramid head costume.

Also...yeah, if it's drawing elements from 1 and 2...will there be fog like there was in 2, or snow as I remember there being in 1.

edit: And I'm still very impatiently awaiting the release of 'Snakes on a plane', which will doubtlessly be the high water mark of cinema in our lifetimes.

"IT'S RAPING MY MIND!!!!"

Couple of things:

1. Before I read the article...I thought she was going to play Yoko Ono, at which point this would be HYSTERICAL.

2. Theres a movie about the RFK assassination coming out? I didn't even know that...and..somehow the guy from mighty ducks is involved? HUH?

3. She was hotter when she had red hair, and didn't look like Allied forces had just liberated her from Birkenau.

See, its thing like this that make me want to end my dream of being a film director and a screenwriter. I mean, where did God disappear too?

I'm Sharpshooter. I thought that Lohan was going to play Yoko and I just thought to myself "Hasn't the movie industry been through ENOUGH this year?!" And wouldn't acting in any type of John Lennon movie involve... I don't know... some sort of a shred of acting ability?!

I knew about the RFK movie from Entertainment Weekly but there's something weird about what they said in it:
"Emilo Estevez has signed on an A-list cast of actors with Anthony Hopkins, Lindsay Lohan, and others (I can't remember who) to star in the assassination movie of RFK". Try and see what's wrong with that phrase...

Also, yeah Lindsay Lohan was much more attractive with the redhead and when she weighed more than the box office gross from "Herbie: Fully Loaded".

I found this trailer for Peter Jackson's "King Kong" that's coming out in December. I hear that it may get some Oscar nominations and that it's running time is three hours and change. Check it out here...

Poor John Lennon and Yoko. Knowing about Lindsay Lohan being involved with any part of their lives in anyway must have them spinning in their graves.
Peace.

Sadly, Yoko is still alive. And who, in their RIGHT/WRONG/LEFT MIND CASTS ANTHONY HOPKINS ALONGSIDE LOHAN.


WTF.

If this movie makes any sort of money, I'm gonna smack Yoko so hard, everyone in Japan and all 4 beatles are gonna feel it.

Don't even get me started on that one. I'd say "Too bad nobody ever pulled a repeat of what happened to John on Yoko", except Lennon was shot by one of his fans.

Yoko Ono dosen't HAVE any of those to my knowledge.

EDIT: Another one from the "things that should not be, but are" file.

Ewan McGregor and Glenn Close to star in new version of Sunset Boulevard. Put down the gun, it's not a remake, it's an adaptation of a musical adaptation of the film. Andrew Lloyd Webber is involved...so...actually you may want to pick up that gun after all.

I honestly don't know what to make of that.

Oh except I am skeptical since it's not going to be in black and white. And the cinematographer is dead..or at least retired, I don't know. And really with a movie like that, yes it does seriously matter if it's not in black and white, and shot the way it was originally.
Nine Kuze 11-14-2005 09:28 PM
My mistake on the Yoko thing, didn't know she was still alive.

Abnyway, check this out. Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Red Eye is in a new movie where he plays a woman and has the whole costume down as well. He talks about it here in this interview. And the scary thing is, is that he actually looks like a woman... Confused
