  1. I guess I'll start one. I think it's the best "blockbuster" style movie of the year. One where you can actually take the stakes seriously and care about what happens and make you feel something coming out of the cinema. The actors are all top notch and you can see everyone gave it their all to elevate the movies It can be accused of being a " teen romance" movie not worthy of older people's attention, but the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies also had romance as central elements of the films .Personally, I do not think Hunger Games has anything to do with the Twilight franchise (I saw most of them too) Catching Fire was clearly a better film than the first one, but the original Hunger Games was great too and very underrated IMO. I saw 3 trailers of blockbuster movies tonight, Godzilla, Spiderman 2 and 300part 2. All had the same CGI shots of cities and buildings falling over or being blown to bits...do we even care anymore about massive CGI destruction of cities? PS in second place is Desolation of Smaug for blockbuster this year
  2. Peter Jackson comments on a movie version of The Hobbit. The short story: he doesn't expect the lawyers to work out a deal that'll let the movie be made in less than 4 years. Sounds like lawyers. :roll:
  3. The villain will be Electro played by Jaime Foxx, and Harry Osbourn will be in the movie as well http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/25693/foxx-dehaan-confirmed-for-spider-man-2
  4. This movie doesn't have its own thread, but Fox has set the original X-Men director Bryan Singer to direct after X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn bailed... again. The film will come out July 2014. First Class cast members James McAvoy (Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) are reprising their roles in the sequel. Returning in supporting roles from the original X-Men trilogy are Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan. Hugh Jackman will also be involved, as are Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, and Ellen Page. No word yet on whether Halle Berry, James Marsden, or Famke Jansson will return. John Ottman hasn't been officially confirmed to compose, but since he and Singer have a working editorial and composing relationship... it's only a matter of time before he comes on.
  5. So, since reviews are coming in, I thought a film discussion thread would be appropriate.
  6. Which, in your opinion, is the most lacklustre entry out of the three most recent franchise prestige damaging movies? I would say AUJ by a considerable margin. Not only is it a shoe-in for the most visually repellent big budget movie of all time, but it also went out of its way to out-bloat the entire LotR EEs and King Kong put together. Never has there been such redundancy in moving pictures and such disrespect for the art of editing. And on top of all that you have a regurgitated and tedious score which makes James Horner look like Morrissey. Edit: I've changed my mind to Battle of the Five Armies after seeing it today.
  7. Jonathan Nolan changing agents is seen by some as a move that could have once great now barely competent director Steven Spielberg choosing Interstellar as his next directoral effort. Spielberg, whose last directoral efforts is still well over a year away from hitting the screens where it will meet with minimal BO interest, has teased his fans with this and that and nothing. He's so fucking tight that he didn't make Lincoln because he couldn't get financing even though he's nearly a billionaire. BTW Jonathan Nolan, who is soon to start rewriting the legacy of Superman, has spent 2 years writing Interstellar. If the 'Berg chooses to make this film it will be a seen as a sign that a gauntlet has been thrown down by Cameron and Spielberg must pick up this challenge. Anything you do I can do better. How many times has Spielberg's next been reported?
  8. I just read this interesting article on 2014 films coming out that aren't sequels, prequels, reboots, or adaptations: http://www.buzzfeed.com/wordsbydan/14-movies-in-2014-that-arent-sequels-prequels-r-b6bd?bffb I have not seen a trailer for most of these movies, let alone even heard of most of them. But many sound intriguing! Of course beyond those types of films, there are many franchise movies coming out, like X-Men 6, Transformers 4, Hobbit 3, Hunger Games 3, Night at the Museum 3, Expendables 3, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Captain America 2, Muppets 2, Spider-man 2, Dumb and Dumber 2, Veronica Mars, Robocop, Godzilla, etc. Here's a complete list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_in_film If I could only see 5 films in the theater in 2014, they would be: The Hobbit: There and Back Again Interstellar Jupiter Ascending Sin City 2 Gone Girl So what are you excited for?
