    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    Gree Lantern had a good development ("setting the scene"), and that's all it was, development ("setting the scene"), as can be seen by them trying to cram the plot and climax into it, which was horrible obviously. They should have made it into two movies. Put all the plot, story, confrontation, and climax with the bad guy in the second movie, instead of trying to cram it into the first movie, that develops the Green Lantern setting, for those who didn't know it (this was done very well).

    I just saw Outlander movie on tv, as it was shown in the theatres in Europe but only extremely limitedly in the U.S. (none near where I live, so I never was able to see it in theatre).

    I think it was probably one of the best done "Beowulf" stories.

    Speaking of Beowulf...I know it isn't totally based on the Epic Poem, but The 13th Warrior is one of my guilty pleasures

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I used to watch The 13th Warrior a lot like 5-6 years ago. It was the only movie we had at our summer house where there wasn't much to do.. And still, all I remember is how Antonia Banderas learns how to speak Swedish just by listening. And there were some creatures who killed people and stuff... I should probably watch it again.


    Or not, if I remember correctly when it comes to the actual quality of it. But hey, my guilty pleasure is Xena, so I'm not judging..

    Concurs, 13th Warrior was very awesome for me too!

    13th Warrior and Outlander = excellent "Beowulf" movies!

    ---------------------------------------

    ?Beowulf? (with the golden glazed Angelina Jolie as Grendel's mother) and ?Beowulf? (that 3D animated one)

    = Awful "Beowulf" movies!

    --------------------

    13th Warrior, to me, is quite "Beowulf'ish", it does nearly follow the Beowulf story and its elements. Though it is a direct movie creation of Michael Crighton's book, Eaters of the Dead, though this too is based upon Beowulf (it's very much "Beowulf'ish") .

    The quality holds up. Despite being a flop, and not being well-liked by critics, the special effects are good, probably because the budget was rather high....hence it being flop

    I don't think they need to be THAT great really with that movie anyways, considering ...

    You should re-watch it !!, at least I really liked 13th Warrior, and think it's a really good movie

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    @HegemonKhan, agreed on GL film - only the sequel <if there will be any!?> can make watching the first GL movie worthy. Actually I have this strange feeling that this movie was made solely for the purpose of giving a 'stage' for the sequel with - without spoilers - we know who,what and whatnot xd

    Just giving props to this site: http://www.expendablespremiere.com/index.html Anyone interested in The Expandables 2 should look forward to it - it seems that the final fight between Sly and Van Damme was already made and the crew celebrated it <3 Also, I like the Van Damme's clothes in the movie, he will be a really good villain methinks. Can't wait, really can't wait.
    On the other hand: Chuck Norris is invincible xP Despite his age of 70sth he still looks 'almost' the same as in Texas Ranger or sth. Maybe I'm fed up with those jokes but.. time is not affecting Chuck Norris - its Chuck Norris who affects time

    Immortals:

    very disappointing... 300 was good... immortals.... bad

    it did have some cool fight scenes and blood/gore splashing, but that's about it. sighs.

    ------------------------------

    has anyone seen the movies:

    In Time and Anomynous, are either of them any good?

    Just watched The adventures of tintin. It was a pleasant watch and it lived up to the standard.
    I wonder if they are going to make films of other books in the future? Snowy was damn adorable in the movie
    and the cap'n was so much fun.

    There's 2 more adaptations planned, but so far no confirmation as to what the next one will be based on. Anthony Horowitz who is writing the screenplay for the sequel said it will not be based on the Prisoner of the Sun.

    he said:

    Quote Quote:
    "I can tell you that I think the second film is not going to be Prisoners of the Sun. What it is going to be is still under discussion. I’ve had meetings with the directors and producers and we’ve talked about ideas and action sequences. At the moment I’m trying to put together a story that will please everybody. It’s a very difficult one to do.

    "The good news is if [Prisoners Of The Sun] is not the second film it'll be the third film so actually I could end up with two Tintins under my belt."

    I had to tag along with others, but would it worth watching the dvd when it comes out...that I am not even sure... (They should have featured more cutesy Puss rather than manly Puss.) MI films are always great.

    Every time I read a piece of news on the live-action adaptation of Akira (it pains me just to write those words), I feel it just can't get any worse. Then something like this pops onto my screen.

    That's it. The movie isn't even out yet, but I'm going to deny its existence from now on. My god, by the guy who did House of Wax? WHYYYYY!!!!! I just died inside a little.
