After what has happened to John Carter I'll never ever ever look forwards to a movie ever again! So there! :(

Those Disney execs who hung John Carter out to dry aren't worried. After all, they're banking on the pre-ordained mega-success of their new Lone Ranger movie:

Good luck with that. :mellow:

Well at least they're tightening up the budget reins, only spending $200 million on this one... :wacko:

"Who was that masked man?"

As long as John Carter of Mars is in theaters, that is the only movie I will see in theaters. Only after it is gone will I watch other movies.

Prometheus Just looks like another Alien re-hash. Same old, same old.

Kind of blah. Might catch it on dvd.

Dark Shadows might be interesting. I never saw the tv show it was based on (hey, I'm not that old.)
Hope it offers up something a bit more of interest than these Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Twilight crud they keep churning out for the same market.

I think its supposed to be a prequel to alien though not just a rehash.


There is considerably more to this movie than it just being a rehash/prequel to Alien. I have high hopes for it.
Dark Shadows looks like an awful lame comedy to me...enough with the comedy, romantic, defanged undead already.

heh though I did like dark shadows show ( they reran the whole series on scifi channel about 10 years ago, I was on steady nights so I caught them in the morning it originally aired in the late 60's /early 70's,a few years before i was born) I never could take it too seriously to begin with, so I know I'm in the minority when I say it looked funny to me. It has the a bit of the B flick cheesiness i liked about Burtons Ed Wood.I think I can count on one hand the tim burton movies i liked though.
There are so many movies coming out this year,Its hard to decide which to spend the money on. For myself if i only see on the road ( whenever the release date is stateside) I'll be happy.

I dont understand this attitude at all. Every person i know online and offline have enjoyed the film. I havent heard of so loved Science fantasy blockbuster for long time. The critics are half and half, many of them hailing it as more complex blockbuster. That some american audicence didny see the film doesnt say everything.

BO numbers doesnt say anything about the film quality and shouldnt mean anything to the fans other than maybe there wont be a sequel.

Many classics today was BO flop, Bladerunner for example is much bigger than films that outclassed it in the BO in US in 1982.

I think the only real route open to them on old tv show revivals is the parody, such as with such recent dreadful revivals as 'Starsky And Hutch' and '21 Jump Street.

In the case of Dark Shadows it may just work, although it may also fall flat on it's face. (or fangs.lol)

Has anyone seen The Artist i was really looking forward to seeing it and it had premiere 9 march here. Here is my review incase anyone is interested in the film:


The Artist

I just saw this film which i thought was hyped because the nostalgic story,being a silent film but i forgot about that when the film started. The lead actor carried his role so well that i totally forget he was an actor playing George Valentin, its easy to get lost in the wonderful story, the music,the atmosphere and in the quality acting.

It was hard not smile through the whole film with Valentin and to feel sad in sadder parts of the story. The black and white visuals, camera work was stunning in away that only the best black and white films could be.

Im a believer now this film is special and not hyped because of a sappy silent actor story and the nostalgic feeling.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I greatly enjoyed the book and hope the film will do it justice. Was very impressed with Seth Grahame-Smith's knowledge of the life of Lincoln and the Civil War. Certainly a unique take on the causes of the Civil War. Doubt though that those who lament the defeat of the Confederacy will care for it.
Found myself wishing Buffy and Angel were still running.Been very interesting if ol' Abe had turned up in Sunnydale!

"I dunno, but I don't think he's the Lone Ranger."


Got that right! Certainly not how Clayton Moore would have appeared .
Happens I have been on bit of a Lone Ranger kick, watching some DVD collections from the show I hadn't seen in awhile. One is
"The Counterfeit Mask", about a Lone Ranger imposter. Applies quite well to that picture.

I'm in the middle of doing that on my own, cheaper and spread out a little more: watched Iron Man 1 & 2 last week, saw Incredible Hulk & Thor this week and will watch Captain America next week. Hoping to get a chance to see it opening weekend.

Prometheus is my only must see so far. I'm kinda interested in Abe Lincoln and I'll likely see Avengers, though I don't have high hopes for it. Who the hell greenlit that 47 Ronin idea?

I'm a huge Lone Ranger fan.

So I won't be seeing that.

File this under the not looking forward to department:

I'll venture out on a limb and say the villains will be a big corporation who wipe out the mangani and leave Tarzan the last of his kind.
