The person who was the voice for the original Michelangelo in the first film is not very happy about the Michael Bay news.

Personally I don't blame him.

Quint, a lot of times I can be a nerd yes, but proud of it damn it! :P lol

My gf calls me a nerd regarding my love for film scores but I just stick my tongue out at her and say, "Yup and damn proud of it!".

Michael Bay will TAINT our childhood with this film.

~*~

Nerd is a derogatory slang term for a person typically described as intellectual, socially-impaired, and obsessive who spends inordinate amounts of time on unpopular, obscure, or highly technical pursuits, or relating to topics of fiction or fantasy, to the exclusion of more mainstream activities.[1][2][3] Nerds are considered to be awkward, shy, and unattractive.[4] Thus, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by others, or will tend to associate with a small group of like-minded people. As with other pejoratives, nerd has been reappropriated by some as a term of pride and group identity.

~*~

Hmmm...we're all nerds.

absolutely not, I've always loved the Three Stooges. The original three that is. Moe, Larry, Curly.

Sorry if slapstick humor isn't one of your tastes.

you're probably more interested in the sophisticated humor of Judd Apatow and his cronies like Jonah Hill, and films that say fuck every 3 seconds and then someone hits a bong or roach.

I grew up watching the Stooges and love all the old Stooge shorts

The new film looks absolutely TERRIBLE. They completely missed, it's NOTHING like the old shorts, its a disaster. I mean cameos from the Jersey Shore? Really? Awful

For the Stooges? This is nothing like the Stooges that we grew up watching. First of all, they were real people and not characters, they literally embodied what was on screen and I think many think its foolish to think others capture that feeling that the originals were able to emote. What's next, Laurel & Hardy and Abbot and Costello revivals? These were real people, playing thinly veiled characters but never straying far from what they knew. These are three actors who, besides the one playing Moe whom I've never heard of, have never been very successful on their own comedicaly and now we are supposed to believe they can inhibit three of the best slapstick actors ever?

Personally, I'm just ashamed that Larry David is in this utter piece of garbage. If it somehow manages to be even decent I'll be shocked but considering the Farrelly's output in the last decade and what has been shown so far I have zero faith in this. I stick to watching the classics off AMC on the weekends.

Ahh, the beauty of Croenberg.

And as Quint said, I don't the man ever left and this looks like a Croenberg film if I've ever seen one.

The only thing I feel a bit sour about is the casting of Robert Pattinson. I've yet to see a single satisfying performance from him and I was not aware that he was casted for this film. Would he be suitable?

Or they can jump back a few minutes in time. Pattinson shoots through his hand just for kicks and then undoes what he has done by going back in time.

it's easy to dismiss when you haven't seen it. I disagree that they were playing 3 real people. They were characters, or charicatures. I seriously doubt that Moe could pull all of that hair out of Larry's head, time after time.
For the record the 3 Stooges were actually 6. Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, Curly Joe, and Joe.

Not real is the actual sense, but in the same way that a lot of comedians were doing at the time. They had a certain character and that is what they did. If you do something as much as the Stooges did, its only logical that eventually the two tend to meld together. I'm sure a lot of the real men eventually came through those characters and eventually I'm sure they adapted character traits into their personal lives. Maybe Larry had a very deceptively thick head of hair? :lick:

Yes, its easy to bash something when it hasn't come out, but previews are meant to portray not only the feeling and tone of the movie, but showcase the best the film has to offer. John Carter has taught many that fact may not always be the case, but its more tried and true than most. And considering not only the subject matter, I will be incredibly shocked if we see a massively different film than what I've seen in the trailers and commercials.

And as far as I'm concerned, there are only 4 Stooges: Moe, Larry, Curly, and Shemp. I refuse to accept the other two as Stooges.

the quality dips with Curly Joe and Joe but they still have their moments. Shemp was loveable.
Look extreme Slapstick isn't for many these days, as I said most find humor in bongs, and roach clips, and extreme vulgarity. Simulated violence is a no no. For what it's worth I think in the latest clip it appears that all three have got there Stooges down. I'm not real worried about the quality of the film in that no Stooges film was quality to begin with. If they nail the performances as the stooges that's all the will matter. Nyuck nyuck nyuck, certainly.

Well I suppose if some people like you and the ones that made it are happy then at least something useful will have come out of the film. Personally, I'll probably check it out on HBO or whatever but I've just never had an interest in it personally. Not many recent comedies tend to do it for me unless it's on television.
