Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Apparently a Point Break remake is in the works. Personally I don't think I'm going to be that excited about it, simply because nobody can replace The Swayze. And I feel confident in saying this remake will probably be overloaded with excessive CGI. Aka this will be another attempt to remake a classic movie so you can pilfer more hard earned money from people. But then again some of the blame has to go to the people willing to pay to see these remakes in the first place.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Anybody interested in Moneyball? I gotta say, it looks good from the previews, and the article I read about it in SI was great as well. I think I'm gonna have to see that eventually. 50/50 looks good as well too. I wish I could say the same about Killer Elite but that looks like your status quo Jason Statham film.

I saw Bridesmaids against my semi-dissenting will the other day, and I gotta say it was actually pretty funny. Definitely not your tediously boring standard chick flick about getting married. I loved the flight scene, I thought that was absolutely hilarious. Very well done on that one, I like the new direction that movie took us in.

Exactly. Is Point Break really so old that it needs to be remade? It's not like Dawn of the Dead where enough time had passed and technology advanced enough to warrant the 2004 version.



or another movie/story that was due for a remake.


Seriously I'm seeing nothing here to justify a remake.

Yeah 50/50 and Moneyball both look good

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

saw bridesmaids with the lady last night. its was real funny, def recommend it for couples.

anyone seen contagion? thumbs up or down.

also saw this docu-drama from 1984 called "story of a junkie" were it follows this junkie around NYC. the footage is real, cool docu-drama that really captured the time, place and vibe.

I saw Pearl Jam Twenty last week, pretty cool to see it in the theater. Highly recommended if you're a PJ fan.

It comes out on DVD later this month.

Can anyone in Hollywood think up anything new for god's sake?

Hahaha... seriously, Carpenter's is a classic. But for some reason, I'll still go see this. So will you mred- it's in our horror nature to do so!

They're also remaking the French horror film Martyrs with Kristen Stewart. I don't know how American audiences are going to take this one...

Also not sure how Spike Lee's Oldboy is going to remain faithful to the Korean version without offending audiences stateside.

As long as you know what to expect from a Soderbergh flick, you'll dig it. It's pretty heady and I guess I wasn't expecting that when I saw it. Very realistic look at the fallout from such an outbreak.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

i was watching tv with my lady the other night. she said something about "finally theres a tv show i might want to watch", i dont know wasnt really paying attention, i think some new show commercial came on. i went on this 5 minute rant about how network tv sucks nowadays becuase its all reality tv crap which costs less to produce and how middle america and those fat ****s from wisconsin are ruining tv for the rest of us because they watch whatever marketed crap hollywood wants to spoon feed them at the expense of east and west coast TV watching folk who dont get represented enough b/c everyone assumes we are actually out doing something in the city or world like we are all castmemebers of Friends and dont live in middle of nowhere america were a friday night out is a 2 hour stroll through walmart.

gosh dang people, what im trying to say is, if we east and west coast people stayed home more on the weeknights, skipped a few happy hours and actually started watching TV before 9 pm we wouldnt have our shows like arrested development canceled all the gosh damn time and we wouldnt have twelve versions of freakin ameican idol or fat farm to choose from.

put your asses back on the couch people, thats why we paid all that money for them.
