          I just saw the commercial for it today, and all I can say it's another belly flop.

It's been rumored for years. Another potential disaster. Ah and there's also Cameron's Gunnm to add to the list (or should I say "Battle Angel Alita").

                                 http://www.push-themovie.com/

When I first saw the commercial, I thought it looked like Jumper and Wanted combined, or to put it another way, like a toilet you took a diarrhea dump in, stuck your head in to throw up, and while you were down there you went ahead decided to stir it with your tongue. It's like a new genre nowadays, cheap not-so-super power movies with terribly mediocre... everything. They make real Superhero movies seem to have the gravity of Shakespeare by comparison. The tepid titles are my favorite part, Jumper, Wanted, and now Push... Jesus, look at how many fucking movies or TV shows are called Push. All made since 2005! No movie or show had that uniquely stupid title before then. It's not a coincidence that nobody wanted to call their work something so dumb before 2005, and now there's a dozen of them! What happened!? Did we finally do it, did we finally reach maximum retardation levels and hit the lowest common denominator? No, and personally, I'm looking forward to more monosyllabic titles such as "Pull", "Cat", "Guh", "Ni", and "A!"

Today's movies and their titles, getting more fucking...

Hey I dunno, I kinda want to see Qui Gon Jinn kick some ass.  :guts: Though, I readily admit this looks pretty ridiculous.

Yeah, I was looking forward to this one, too, but it's currently at 50% on RT...

Wow, that wasn't released in the USA yet? It's been out in France for a year... From what I've been told it's a pretty good action flick, but I can't vouch for that since I haven't seen it myself.

The IMDb rating isn't bad though: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0936501/

Makes sense when you look at the names involved, but they're trying to trick us into thinking their French thriller starring Liam Neeson is a bad American action movie. I won't stand for it!

It actually fooled me because I didn't expect it to be a French flick at all. It was even filmed in English (I think)!

Yeah, I was wondering about that too, Neeson's lines in the commercials almost seem dubbed. Even got me thinking if they wouldn't have used CGI to change their mouth movements... I was already giving it the benefit of the doubt because of Neeson, but now its intriguing production history is causing my imagination to make it seem like the most interesting movie out there. =)

That rating means nothing -- that means the morons and elites are split on the vote. WHich means it's probably a good, competent movie. If something is fucking 99%, I know not to see it. The same if it's 5%. But when it's split? It's fair game.

Here's a big one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0983193/

Tintin. It's terribly special, and just can't exist outside of its own pastel-colored world.

Are you saying it's going to be worse then the others? Because beside Freddy vs Jason, I thought the series was really bad.

I remember this as a kid.. though my memory of it isn't too clear. I'm not exactly overjoyed at the thought of how badly this is going to be butchered. What's worse is the thought that they are planning two sequels to it. Ugh..

Oh, i dunno about that. I used to watch the cartoon as a kid. And considering who's involved, I think it'll be an entertaining romp through childhood nostalgia.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.
