^Bloody hell...that is one awesomely cut trailer. Note how epic and inspiring it seems at the beginning...and then slowly becomes claustrophic and nightmarish towards the end.

Here's hoping that Sir Rid has really upped his game on this one...

Was it? I was considering going to see it but am worried as a fan of the original books if it would disappoint in the ways those adaptations often do. I'm still on the fence about if I want to make it out to the theater this weekend.

Is on the fence about John Carter. I've read the original books and seen how bad almost all movie adaptions are.  Might go see it at the Dollar Theater when they get it.

Go see John Carter! Speaking as a fan of the original works it is more than worth it. I wish all of my pulp heroes got the same treatment. To quote myself from another site:

Quote
I think that it opens poorly. Much of the first ~20 minutes felt really rushed, rough draft. Not saying that they weren't good scenes or good ideas, but the writing seemed off, the effects kind of stumbled, etc.

After that, I loved it. This is probably the best adventure film I have seen in recent memory (possibly since my childhood). It is also the sole film based on pulp sources that manages to move me in the same way its source material does. It's beautiful, wonderful, savage, and highly entertaining. Also, let's reiterate that penultimate point: they manage to authentically capture a piece of the savage nature of Barsoom in a PG-13 film made by Disney.

Moreover the creators have explicitly stayed away from certain tropes that I just despise in modern filmaking. That coupled with relative paucity of planetary romance in modern pop-culture make the movie feel very fresh and different from the usual fare.

^LOL - I do like Coulson's 'just another day at the office' face in that.

Total Recall reboot - Obviously, Colin Farrell's going to do a better job than Arnold without even trying too hard. But...from what I've seen and heard so far, there doesn't seem to be any visit to Mars in this, so I'm guessing there must be some major plot changes in this version.

Of course Colson is awesome.  A)  He IS a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, like Natasha, so he likely knows what she can do.  B) He's worked with her before.  C) He's probably had similar training, if not quite as badass as she is.

I mean, Fury keeps him around for a reason, and I don't think it's because he looks good in a suit.

Coulson looks.. meek but he's a SHEILD agent. :D I found this scene in the 'Nick Fury's bad week' where Hawkeye comes into a store with a lot of evidence tape and asks about 'guys in black suits' and walks out with a smirk. So I had to go check out.

One word, peeps. Prometheus. As one might gander from my name, the Xenolord will be attending the Alien Prequel at midnight. No exceptions. And it's directed by the MAN himself, Ridley Scott! I mean... Can this GET any better?!

Is it just me or does Depp seem a little as though he's imitating Matt Smith's Doctor in that?

Margin Call - no one delivers dry iced lines like Jeremy Irons*, and the prospect of seeing him as the battered CEO of a Manhattan company treading bogus waters, knowing that he will end up helping to destroy their trademark but possibly getting a big reward in hard cash, is a real treat.

I'm also very much looking forward to Blonde with Naomi Watts. It should come around by the end of the year, and could well give her a deserved Oscar. Joyce Carol Oates is a really great writer (worthy of a Nobel prize, plus she should have been much more visible on film & tv) and Watts was born to play Monroe.

And, of course, The Hobbit I and The Dark Knight Rises - but everybody's looking to those aren't we?

*Pierce Brosnan comes close in inspired moments, but Jeremy has a much darker tone. He, Tony Leung and Penelope Cruz should do something with Almodovar as director.

Saw the first showing of "Cabin in the Woods" this morning.

Run, do not walk, to see this movie.

There are no words to describe the awesomeness.

It is NOT your typical torture porn slasher flick. If you have a wicked sense of humor, you will adore this movie.

It's the eyebrows. Some people can out-act Jeremy Irons. No one can out-act the tag team of Jeremy Irons and Jeremy Irons' eyebrows.

We have a small, horribly underused theatre where I live that mostly shows art films for $4. I usually prefer to give my money to them instead of feeding the Hollywood machine. Anything else I want to see, I usually pirate.

BUT, I will be in line for Prometheus. No one does sci-fi like Ridley.
