Ok, so went to see 9 last night :oeek:

i really liked it, mark not so much, but the thing that freaked me out was that it was rated 12A but there's shit going on on that screen that would give you nightmares....

this being the fright inducer for me:

don't click if you haven't seen the movie! (http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s136/Rocketboy1331/seamstress.jpg)

here's a video clip, also don't watch if you haven't seen 9! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_W3OxKrDMs)

so yeah, after being left mentally scarred, think Fantastic Mr. Fox is next on the list!

can't wait for the Sands of Time to be released, looking at the trailer it looks promising. let's just hope they didn't squash all the best bits into the trailer....

yeah i'm looking forward to this too, but every bloody edition of Empire seems to shite on about it (that being said, i did buy the special edition with the Avatar poster :awesome:)

i just hope it's not being hyped up three much and fails to deliver.
what i'm really intrigued about are the Viper Wolves, they sound terrifying!

Looking forward to the release of Sherlock Holmes too for obvious reasons (http://cdn.buzznet.com/media-cdn/jj1/headlines/2008/12/robert-downey-jr-sherlock-holmes-stills.jpg)

Fantastic Mr. Fox is exactly as the name suggests. Fantastic.

If this spoils anything, forgive me. I'll do my best to avoid them. 9 was a letdown. The plot was incredibly vague. There was no character development and some of the aspects of each character, considering the situation, made absolutely no sense. Particularly the female and the brutish oaf. The ending was chilling but it wasn't clear. There is actually nowhere to go from there! Despite them trying to make it seem like the world was somehow saved. The animation was brilliant don't get me wrong. I can see a lot of thought was put into the action sequences. I was loving the "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" bit, but it really seemed lacking in something. Definitely the most mature animation to be released in cinema this year, especially with Coraline, Mr. Fox and Up taking the maturity level up as well. All in all I would put it at the bottom of the list for animated films this year. Right under Monster VS Aliens. Fantastic Mr. Fox may actually be my number 1.

Sorry... I'm rather passionate about animation in general.

Particularly the female and the brutish oaf.

it's basically saying that there are many parts to a person's psyche.

just like a woman has a "masculine" part to her soul, the man has a "feminine" aspect.

as for the big guy, every person is capable of violence but some just choose not to express it, it still doesn't mean that it's not part of your being.

haha, sorry, 3 years of doing greek and roman studies (particularly the philosophical parts) on top of my media degree means they tend to express themselves sometimes!

That female was the manliest of the bunch... which make less sense when you take in the femininity aspect.

And that oaf was just far more uncharacteristic compared to the rest of them. Most did have similarity with the creator, but he was just a mindless junkie brute.

But then what explains the mute twins?! Silent schizophrenia?!

Whats worse is they're all conflicted... Or rather just 2 of them and the rest are caught in the crossfire.

the twins catalogued everything, as they didn't speak, that was their only function. their creator was a scientist whose job essentially is to research and discover new information. take a look at where he lived, books and ideas written on pieces of paper lined the walls. the twins were his scientific curiosity, the part of him that loved to learn and acquire knowledge and catalogue it for future reference.

the girl was the "manliest" of the bunch as, though she represents the scientists "femininity", she still has to portray the fact she was born from the soul of a man.

and of course they're conflicted.

think of when you face a decision. the majority of the time you can't come to a conclusion straight away.

you debate it with yourself, deciding the best course of action to take. take the scientist for example, when he decided to make "The Machine" the twins inside him would come to good use, using the knowledge he had acquired over the years.

The No.2 inside him would be thrilled with the idea, enjoying the chance to create something from nothing.

But the No. 5 inside him was probably sick with worry as to what this machine would do, but as the majority of his psyche was for the idea, so they overcame the 5 aspect of him and the machine came in to being.

maybe i'm just thinking too much into the film, but considering all 9 of the dolls are a part of one psyche, i think my line of thinking makes sense.

but then, each to their own!

Saw 9 earlier today. It was pretty good. Not overwhelming but an interesting wee watch. Was fascinated by each of the being's personalities; Found ourselves debating who represented what and I doubt we'll ever agree.

Aye, and for the longest time I was expecting to see the same scenes... but they never happened. It was slightly confusing, but I got over it after figuring the movie was better.

Anyone seen Moon yet? It is rather good. Any if anyone mentions New Moon I'm going to kill you in the face. Moon is

I have not been to the cinema as frequently as I would normally do so but I would very much like to get around to eventually seeing 9 and doctor paranasus despite the negative things I've heard.
I really enjoyed Dahl's books as a child and am thoroughly looking forward to fantastic mr fox. Sherlock holmes is another reason for me to look forward to Christmas all the more and I hold Downey in very high regard as an actor having seen his performances in tropic thunder and especially iron man.
Alice in wonderland though by Tim Burton I am probably most interested in though, it was my favourite story as a child and likely the first movie I watched and has been a great source of influence on me.

Well it's hardly a current trend, unless of course you mean since 1994 when Interview With The Vampire encouraged vampires to be a constant throughout of daily lives.

For (well, I'll just list the major ones for now):
The Book of Eli, Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, Iron Man 2, Prince of Persia, The Karate Kid (Jackie Chan remake), The Last Airbender, The Expendables.
(Actually there are quite a lot that I didn't put in that list... but then it would be far too long)

No there is a vampire trend going that has nothing to do with Interview with the vampire. Im talking bout the current trend with the younger generation and with the twilight series that sparked numerous vampire movies and TV shows. Currently the whole vampire thing is "trend" in hollywood right now. besides the twilight movies, there's also Jennifer's Body, The Vampire Diaries (TV series), True blood (another TV series), etc. When its no longer a sub-cultural thing and becomes part of the mainstream then yes its quite a trend.

so when i say im sick of the current vampire trend, i DO mean im sick of the current vampire trend.

So two TV shows and a couple of movies make a trend?!
If that is the case then I still fail to see how it would be any different from say about 8 or 9 years ago when we had Buffy, Angel, Blade movies, Underworld movies, and they're just the few of the more popular ones. Like I said... it's been fairly constant.
The only reason most people have an issue with this whole vampire thing is because millions of teenage girls (and women with the minds of teenage girls) come out in droves and now are into "vampires", even though we all know there are no real vampires in Twilight. Twilight is only mainstream because it's a shallow fantasy romance tale for empty women.

Aye, I know I'm going to enjoy Clash of the Titans for the same reason. Though I saw the first trailer and I didn't see the little metal owl which was one of many things I loved about the original Clash of the Titans... I know I'll still like it without the owl, but damnit I loved that owl.

The days of vampire craze from the 90's pale in comparison to the current craze in both popularity and obnoxiousness. The movies you mentioned never made quite the impact as twilight has in the recent years. And im not the one who's calling it a trend, im just using words used by quite a few notable entertainment news companies. Im not sure how prevalent this trend might be where you're at but take it from someone who lives in one of the few cities where entertainment and trends are king.

So by your logic, a large amount of vampire movies made in one year = a trend?

The majority of the movies/shows you listed are not well known and/or are crap. Just cuz many are made does not a trend make.

For example, I would not consider zombie movies to be in trend this year,the last few years and a decade or two ago yes, but not particularly in 2009. Yet a quick google search revealed this info. All these were zombie movies from 2009. Forgive my lack of capitals, I'm writing this on my iPod and it's gonna take a while!

All you need is brains
Army of the dead
Autumn of the living dead
Bio dead
Blood moon rising
Bong of the dead
The book of zombies
Carriers
The crypt
The living corpse
Dark floors
Dead air
Dead moon rising
Dead past

Deadlands 2: trapped
Die-net? (get it?)

FVZA: federal vampire and zombie agency
Gallowwalker

George A. romero's survival of the dead
Haunting kira
Hell on earth

Joshua breed
La horde
Mutants
Night of the living dead goes 3D
Paris by night of the living dead
Plan 9
Pontypool
Rec 2
The revenant
Rising up: the story of the zombie rights movement
Romeo & Juliet vs the living dead
Silent night, zombie night
Stone's war
They shall pay with rivers of blood
Tormented
Uniform sabaigaru
Woke up dead
Worst case scenario
Xombie
ZMD: zombies of mass destruction
Zombie allegiance
Zombieland
Zombies of the night
Zombie reanimation
Zombie women of Satan
Zone of the dead


As you can see, many if those sound (and indeed are) shite movies. Guarantee you haven't heard of the majority if them, as I haven't. Zombie movies certainly aren't in trend this year, yet according to your theory, that list proves otherwise ;p

You also have to realise that tv shows and films particularly, involve a lot of pre-production, so it could be argued that it's just coincidence that the examples you listed were released the same year.

I agree with you that twilight seems to have taken over the world, but not vampire movies/shows in general :awesome:

Are you kidding me?!
Before you said anything about other new companies calling this a trend and not yourself, you yourself called it a trend SIX times. You can't just change your stance halfway through an argument, it makes you look silly. Actually I believe there is an internet rule that voids your argument for similar reasons (similar to Godwin's Law).

I do agree though, it's not a trend. I still insist vampires have been around pretty much constantly for decades, it may be at a peak right now, but again that's not a trend. Also, everything tread_softly said.

I didnt change my stance. im still calling it a trend, i said it 6 times and im still saying it now. its a trend. I was merely using the article as PROOF that its a trend. btw if you noticed the publication dates article i linked, it was written before I ever posted on here. Its been published for a while and the whole idea i got from calling Vampires a current trend was from the companies because IT IS a trend. It may not be so in Ireland but it certainly is where I live.

look im tired of arguing this pointless argument just for the sake of argument.
whether you guys want to believe it or not i simply no longer care. believe what you want to believe.

lol you're def not gonna find vampires wandering round. I take it by your later statement that you're gonna be in boston? ewww boston... lol hf ^^

culture is one of the biggest influences of the film industry but the film industry also influences the culture and helps spread it. but that wasnt what i was refering to. Rather I mentioned the whole vampires being a media trend thing in relation to US culture while some of you might not think so due to Ireland culture or Canadian, British, etc. I've been asking friends and people at work if they thought that Vampires is a current media trend and they're responses were similar if not sarcastic remarks of obviousness (not even sure if this is a real word lol). which brings me to your next point which i do agree with, none of us are gonna change our view points on the subject matter.

have fun seeing Avatar on imax ^^

Got back from seeing Avatar tonight myself and I have to agree with you. It was a very visually stunning film. I give it a 8.8 out of 10. Good music (not epic but good enough), once again visually stunning (the colors in the film were so vibrant for Pandora's environment and creatres), good use of CG, good acting, and good directing. Not saying this is a film that might win Academy awards but its def a fun film to watch.
tho I must disagree bout seeing it in 3D. Saw it in 3D and I dont think it would've been too different or too much of a hindrance in 3D. I found it very enjoyable actually in 3D. It was kinda kool at certain scenes and where certain things popped out at you. IMO I dont think it being in 3D would make or break the film but I thought it was a nice feature.

It was shot using groundbreaking new 3D cameras. The 3D element is a crucial aspect of this films production.

The story's not up to much (if you have ever seen/heard of Pocahontas), but everything else about the film is fantastic; the CG is incredibly believable; the whole atmosphere of the planet is an amazing achievement.

Well it's hardly a current trend, unless of course you mean since 1994 when Interview With The Vampire encouraged vampires to be a constant throughout of daily lives.

So what movies are everyone looking forward to in the new year? Or... not looking forward to?
For (well, I'll just list the major ones for now):
The Book of Eli, Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, Iron Man 2, Prince of Persia, The Karate Kid (Jackie Chan remake), The Last Airbender, The Expendables.
(Actually there are quite a lot that I didn't put in that list... but then it would be far too long)

Against:
A Nightmare on Elm Street (remake), Robin Hood, Little Fockers, The Green Hornet (seriously, Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler WTF??).

The Expendables sounds awesome on paper, you've got Sylvester Stallone directing and starring, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren (!!!!!), Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and even Arnie has a cameo. Should these people even be allowed together in the one film?

Other films in 2010 that are worth looking out for:

* The Road - If you want your post-apocalyptic fix I'd recommend this over the Book of Eli.

i4aNZGniOG4

* Black Swan - More Darren Aronofsky insanity.

I meant the seats, though I'll find out for myself tonight. Really, it cost me €10? But I am going to the last showing so that probably explains that.
I think they plan to have a number of movie "festivals" like what they did with The Godfather trilogy (which is still playing if I'm not mistaken).

Haven't been so amazed by a film's special effects since Lord of the Rings and I think they were done by the same company. Or they were at least involved somehow.

Reviews are just opinions. Sometimes stated eloquently. By people who watch far too many movies and know what they like.

The trick is to find a reviewer who has a similar sense of taste to your own.

The second, more cunning trick, is to know when reading a review, what impression the film might give you. Like reading a review of a film that was awarded 5 stars, but knowing from his impression that you probably won't like it. Or conversely a review that was awarded two stars, and realising that it's going to be awesome.

They got the balance of lighting just right as well to portray the blinding light of the environment without it actually being too bright for the audience, a mistake that was made in Pitch Black, much to the paining of my poor pupils.

It was a lot like an extended Bruce Springsteen video - indeed one his songs provided the title. As such, it's one of the most 80s-style films I've ever seen - but there are elements of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

The music, mostly by Ry Cooder, is fantastic. It spawned a couple of hits, including one some people might remember:

It was more of a revenge fantasy type dealie like The Crow. Should have been marketed a bit more like that. It was a slightly uncomfortable attempt to mesh superheroes and gritty grimdark gangsta violence. But somehow still managed to be a good movie.

It was more about what happens if your average joe puts on a mask and fights crime. Just happens that they have to use violence to beat the bad guys. The bad guys happen to be gangsters. Sometimes violence is the only option. Reason and diplomacy don't always work.

I dunno, I don't think they really drove that point in either.

Also a lot of the time reason and diplomacy do work, there's kind of three levels of naivety, "Let's give them flowers, they're bound to love that" -> "Fuck that shit, they can't be reasoned with. Let's kick their asses." -> "Apprently kicking their asses causes some kind of cycle of violent that's troublesome for everyone. We may have to reassess".

A lot of the time the violence between pawns is almost for show while the "diplomacy" happens elsewhere. That's the way a lot of wars are fought. I kind of found Turn A Gundam interesting for the way it depicted war.

At the weekend a saw a fantastic piece of cinema called The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086856/) (to give it it's full title).

What was going on in this film? Who knows?

Plot? Feh! It needs not such things. All you need to know is that the main character is a test pilot/secret agent who dabbles in neurosurgery and plays in a jazz band. There are also some intergalactic criminals that are trying to release their comrades from a prison in the 8th dimension - and one of them is played by Christopher Lloyd.

And of course, the end credits:

I saw Iron Man 2 last week, pretty good... though, Iron Man was never my favourite Comic :-?

As a movie Iron man 2 was epic but as a sequel to the original it was a total let down :(

Watched The Matrix and Matrix Reloaded on UMD on a bus ride today (no time for Revolutions!).

Scary to think that the first one was released in 1999, didn't realise it was that old!

Anyone else see Dog Soldiers on Saturday night. I can't recall what channel it was on. Anywho, it's about a bunch of British army men being chased though the a remote area of Scotland by werewolves. I know it might seem a bit silly on paper but it was really well executed,and surprisingly good.

I wikied last night and it's relatively old,2002. It's good alright. If it were set in the US with the American army I'd imagine it would be crap,too many cliches and O.T.T. macho-ness. But as it is,it worked really well.

When I first heard of Dog Soldiers I thought it was a live action remake of Dog Soldier:

Just got back from seeing it. It's fucking brilliant in my opinion. Well up to the standards of the original. It's been a while since i've been this tense watching a movie. I would definitely love to see a series of Predator movies of this quality put into production.
