Wondering if they reunite all those characters if it'll be worth seeing?
I was actually listening to an old episode of Loveline from a week or two before they were to release American Wedding (Eddie Kaye Thomas as the guest) and they were going on and on about how this completed the trilogy and how they were sure this (American Wedding) was the last one. Funny how that turned out with this latest flick.

Either way I didn't see the last one and the only reason me and all my friends saw the first one came about because "OMG SHANNON ELIZABETHS B00Bz OMGWTFBBQ!" Second one came out when I was still in high school as well so naturally I saw it but by the time AW came around I just wasn't really interested in the series anymore.

Personally, aside from being a potential cash cow, I just think they wanted a send off which included Chris Klein and Tara Reid, as the two were absent from the previous film. Thats assuming of course that they don't make American Divorce.

THG is a much more subtle film than BR, but briskly paced nonetheless. 2.5 hours never felt so fast. I dug the score, shaky-cam and most of all, the acting. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing (peep Winter's Bone if you want some serious cinema).
Why is it such a big fuss that Rue is Black in the movie?

I was actually in American Wedding...no, actually I wasn't but during American Pie 2 while I was in a previous career I booked Jason Biggs and Thomas Ian Nicholas to come on our news show and promote their movie. Later that night, a few of us went out for drinks at Bethesda Crab House (if my memory serves me right) and we had a a bunch of girls-who, of course, were fawning over those two, that I had just been cast as the new kid for the next American Pie movie

Because sadly people are idiots as both her and Thresh were both described to me by my friends who've read the books that the specific description of Rue is "a twelve-year-old girl from District 11. She has dark brown skin and eyes."
And some of the comments made by some of the posters make me sick to my stomach that some people still think this way.

I've never read the books, so I guess I'll leave the answer to sft&t.

But considering how this world's districts are structured, this casting seems perfectly fine.

Thank you!
I agree it is like folks are desperate for the next big thing so they made this it. I read the books there was nothing ground breaking about the story telling. At times it was even boring.

I think if you are 15 and you read it you are kind of blown away because to be honest most 15 don't have enough knowledge of better stories to compare it too.

Now that's what I call networking.

I saw your mom in Backdoor Sluts 9, the most hardcore porno ever made.

Ooooh yeah!

Serious note, watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo tonight. That was one hell of an intense flick. I think I heard its going to be a trilogy? If that's the case imma have to check out the next two.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

If anyone has a chance to see The Raid: Redemption, run to your theater as soon as possible. Greatest action flick ever... and that's not hyperbole.

I'd suggest staying away from the trailer- walk in cold and expect to be blown away.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I drove by the theater today and saw the list of movies that were playing. It's no wonder Hollywood is "loosing money." Virtually 0 original ideas, just sequels and remakes for the most part.
