Damn, Ust, that set is awesome. I consider Pale Man (is this how he/she's officially called?) as one of the most amazing imaginary creature I have seen in movies, tho I'm not sure if it's a del Toro original.
Those movies you mentioned have endings where you'll like "WUT??!" then go think about what really happened for the next couple of hours.
I SAW TINTIN YESTERDAY!!!
First of all I found out that it's been out since Monday, which is 2 days earlier than I had expected but nevertheless, I wasn't so upset and joined the long ass queue of people to get my ticket.
As for the movie itself, it is awesome. I may sound biased in my view about this and I must admit that there were a lot of moments where I was in reminiscent mode but the plot, animation, fight scenes, characters were just so brilliantly done that I'd watch a couple more times before getting bored.
Just to let you guys know, YOU WILL LOOOOOOOOOOVE CAPTAIN HADDOCK; if by some weird reason you find the movie to be mediocre, he will make you love it, He's so brilliantly portrayed and everything that comes out of his mouth is quotable and hilarious.
This film is my modern day Lord of the Rings; the kinda movie I won't ever get tired of watching. I can't wait for the next 2 parts. 9/10
Oh I loved Pan's labyrinth too!
That pale man scene had me screaming the e.n.t.i.r.e. time! And I loved the ambiguity as well. Faun was a somewhat affably evil character, and he was designed so effectively I supposed. Because I wanted to hate him but he was too mysterious to hate. lol.
and I didn't know Tintin was planned for three parts. Koen never mentioned anything about that...
I did read this about Tintin 2, though:
The thing is, Peter Jackson has a couple of other.. rather big projects coming up. What were they called... something hobo... The Hobbit! Part 1 is still in production, and I'd guess part 2 will be following closely behind (since its set release date is December 2013, one year after part 1). In any case, if Jackson really is going to direct Prisoners Of The Sun, it'll probably not be until production on The Hobbit Part 2 is over. Meaning we'll have to wait a damn while for the Tintin sequel..Originally Posted by Empire Magazine
I watched Captain America yesterday. Okay movie I guess, did not excite me much. Seeing the skinny/smaller Evans was strange. Part 2 is rumored for a release in 2014. That's really....far.
Watched it xD Though I will be frank here: Labirynth I liked more, muuuuch more <don't saying I didn't like Orphanage or it was a bad movie, no no, but Labyrinth.. well, everything was just awesome: climate, grotesque, brutal<!>, and giving fairy tale stuff there in awesome written script = priceless for me.Originally Posted by Ustegius
@goldb, its nice to see freindly mini review from here When polish portal <the most famous one which I always use for my movie database and info/news> made a 'first polish review' it was also emphasizing how good the movie is BUT the review itself was lame, heh.
Yes, you're right, and the third movie they will direct BOTH xDOriginally Posted by Organizized
Jackson himself said that only AFTER Hobbit he will do Tintin 2, its confirmed.. either way: studio didn't yet said if there will be Tintin 2 because they want to wait for boxoffice thingy, lol, BUT they said to Jackson & Spielberg to gather their ideas already.Originally Posted by Organizized
@thornofcarrion, I think 3 years isn't that long if you look that Marvel each year seems delivering AT LEASt one superhero movie: 2012 = THE freakin' Avengers <guys, what your thoughts are?>, Spider-man, 2013 = Iron man, somewhere Thor, etc.
Iron Man was really good. The Incredible Hulk was good. Iron Man 2 was good. Thor was good. Captain America was pretty good.
What I like about Marvel is that they leave little "easter eggs" and references for the fans in the movies that many people might miss (which I guess is the reason many people give the movies bad ratings). But Marvel's movies are really for their fans. The way all the different movies tie in to each other and the tons of in-jokes and references make me like them more than if they'd just been individual movies. Even though I was much more impressed by, say, Nolan's Batman movies, the way all these Marvel movies are building up to The Avengers has made me just as hyped about that as The Dark Knight Rises.
Gotta agree. The late Marvel films have been so much fun. Exciting adventures, cool action, and funny to boot. The references and little fanservice details add to the entertainment value. Sure, no eternally knowledged masterpieces of art. Not as impressive as some other comic films (Nolan, V for Vendetta), but I wouldn't call them bad. Good when you are in the mood for some lighter entertainment, works well when watching with a group of friends and having fun. And the build up they have managed to create for Avengers... damn. I'm really currently more interest in that than the new Batman.
@Organizized, couldn't agree more. Though everyone is based and all, I'm a comic book fan so it makes me even happier to have sth which I can smile on because it was made especially for fans. Those kind of things are priceless for such fans. And the way Marvel was able to pull what he pulled in the comics, to made their 'universe' of superheroes into a movie universe superheroes is just.. fantastic <ok, ok, not everything went their way like the Hulk actors being either not interested or wanting too much money but still.. who cares as mostly all other titles they pulled of nicely <and the Hulk is cgi made, whatever xd> I think The Avengers will have NICE boxoffice not only USA.. but worldwide.
And recently I posted on pl board and I will post my prediction for 'reboot' of Spidey films: the way I see it - Marvel with the new start can build Spidey universe into his movie/comic universe with - I don't know - like the famous scene after the credits with Nick Fury making appointment to Spidey to join Avengers or sth, and The Avengers 2 may future Spidey in the gang as well. The way I see it - Raimi pulled completely Spidey movies 'out' of this idea <of course, if he would do nr4 Spidey movie such scene could prospel as well but lets be fair here.. Tobey was money breaker, by doing reboot with actor who will don't give shit <at least for now> about money and that he is not so popular <yet> gives less money to him and producers and others big bosses are happy> and can play in The Avengers next movie. Afterall, Spidey is the most popular character of Marvel comics <alongside Wolverine <3 >, I don't think they will keep him 'out' of the universe with this reboot now.
Iron Man 1 was very good, Iron Man 2 was crapppp, it was awful, ughn!
Hulk 1 (Hulk) was extremely good (If you're a science nerd like me, it's an interesting concept with the energy, the Hulk's stable infinite energy absorption and his father's unstable infinite energy absorption), but Hulk 2 (The Incredible Hulk) was... CRAPPPPPPPPPPPPPP !!!!!!!
Captain America was.. poor-decent (between awful and average) at best.
Pan's Labrynth was... maybe average at best - if my memory serves.... though I can't remember it too well... sighs... so maybe I actually liked it a bit better than I am remembering liking it (well not liking it I mean).

My theory on Inception's plot:

I have watched Tintin already twice. One time in 2-D and another time in 3-D.
I loved it A LOT. You have to know that tintin comics don't easily lean towards an animation/movie adaptation. Spielberg and his screenplay directors did a very great job. Proof: integrate an unrelated comic for the haddock - tintin meeting in two other comics. The story, the characters were all great. It felt like reading tintin: the moral preacher, perfectionist tintin; his opposing side, the chaotic, negative, careless haddock; snowy, they were all
The world was drawn with very beatiful details as the characters too. The pace was perfect and the movie never bores. The baggar chase, the crane fight in the port is the momentum which every adventure movie can be jealous about.
I want the seven cristall balls and prisoners of the sun next. My most favourite story, make it dark though

Oh and adding: the transitions were awesome too. Going from present to the the history, going from a boat in the ocean back to the town, etc... Those transitions were remarkably, artistically well done

You're good at advertizing.^^
Seen Melancholia, was weird and exciting, hadn't read any previews, so the content was a bit startling. Good cast and performance anyway. Next one was The Conspirator with McAvoy, got to love him and most of his films. Ending was predictable, but fine anyway. Unthinkable with Samuel L was meh, just not a fan of turture, Michael Sheen and Carrie-Anne Moss did round up the cast though. Last one is The Change-Up, did laugh a lot, Ryans offensive character was vexing at times, but made it up with a nice plot with a touch of those 80/90s curse movies.
Man, Tintin was awesome! Definitely in my top 5 this year so far. And speaking of movie intros (a while back), this movie had one of the best title sequences I've seen in ages. I was literally jumping up and down, squealing in nostalgic joy in my seat.
I don't want to wait another like three years for the next one! I want it naaaooooo!
Late, just watched Green Lantern. Comparing with some other similar movies, it was a decent watch. Ryan fitted the role and the graphics were acceptable too. Some fine humor too. Overall, I was not bored till the end.
Really? I was soooo looking forward to that movie( Green Lantern is my favourite DC hero) and when I saw it, it wasn't the best thing I'd seen and I wasn't really impressed. It'd take a lot to make me watch it again. The story was just lacking and some of the performances weren't all that either. The casting of Ryan Reynolds was always going to be a big issue but I didn't think he was bad but as always I'd prefer if they didn't choose someone as famous as him to play comic book character, but I've been wrong before( Christian Bale, Chris Evans).
