Say What? ???
A remake of Hellraiser? Hell no, don't tell me that! :D The original is a Classic--surely nobody in Hollywood would do that! :D
At least for another 10 years! :D


Well, the remake of The Omen was pretty damn good! :)

But, Hellraiser? Nawwwwww!
Who the heck would play Pinhead? Vin Diesel? ???

Interesting thriller, well-made, though it doesn't build up too much tension. Nevertheless, worth seeing, containing some black humour. 8)

As it says, "remake of the original Hellraiser", so it's not the 147th sequel. And the one-and-only Pinhead, Doug Bradley is rumoured to play him in this one also.

Apparently the remakes of Halloween and The Evil Dead are on the way too...

Something's weird about that site&stuff. :err: It looked fake or something. I mean, its real, but something just doesn't jive. ???

There is supposed to be a big, box-office sequel about the end/death of Pinhead about 2009, or earlier. Clive Barker said he did not want any more to do with this series after that. But, he said he was going to legally leave it possible for other directors/writers/producers to create movies about Pinhead&the Gang, if they wish.

As it says on the front page, IMDb is "visited by over 47 million movie lovers each month" and "the biggest, best, most award-winning movie site on the planet", so t definetly isn't fake. I believe though, that Hellraiser and Evil Dead are in quite an early stage, so it's not 100% sure they'll even make them. The new Halloween is already in post-production, so it's coming for sure.

Take everything you read on IMDB, especially the stuff that is in pre-production or announced, with a huge grain of salt. Basicly everyone can enter the information there and I've already seen some funny stuff, like Samuel L. Jackson in the final episode of Lost's first season ...

So far, I've found that site really reliable, but yeah, a lot of info is put there just based on rumours.

Anyway, watched yesterday:

Shrek 2
I thought Shrek was a bit overrated, but this was seimply hilarious from start to finish. I especially liked John Cleese (imo the funniest man alive) playing the King.

Also today bought Casino Royale on DVD.

Anyone remember AIRWOLF? The late-80s CBS TV series which was about a CIA Supersonic helicopter that a group of people used to serve justice on terrorists, drug&gunrunners, criminals&various other thugs and anti-social misfits. Later, Airwolf was syndicated to USA Network for 1 season with a different cast: the originals Earnest Borgnine(Santini)was killed off, Caitlin(ex-model Jean Bruce Scott) went to work for the government, and Stringfellow Hawke's long lost brother, St. John, was found.

Anyway, IMO it was a great show&a movie is in the writing phase about this subject.

http://airwolf.tv-series.com/default.as ... leID=50489

I hope a better outcome than what happened to Dukes of Hazzard or the Beverly Hillbillies Movies. :roll:
Miami Vice was OK.
Airwolf was the top show for awhile, but so were those others.
So, its a good idea if a good director&producer get chosen for the project.

My son told me of two upcoming movies which sounded very good! :)

1. PATHFINDER--About a Viking child who is raised by Native Americans. The Vikings return to America to fight the Indians&discover the Viking boy, now a grown man, is fighting on the side of the Indians.

2. THE LAST LEGION--This movie really interested me. Its about the crumbling of the Roman Empire around 470AD, and one man's attempt to save the last Roman "royalty"(a young boy)from death. This movie starts in Europe in a month or so, but does not come to USA until August. The guy(Alex Siddiq)who plays Saladin's officer in Kingdom of Heaven, plays Emperor Theodosius in this movie.
Colin Firth is the star and this is the link:

21 Grams

Well I would consider this movie as a masterpiece. How the director made a packing drama out of a not very new kind of story, how he creates a mix of story fragments and how they gather together later in the film (after really confusing the observer in the first place) is simply impressive. And the actors, the actors... Sean Penn, Naomi Watts, and especially Benicio Del Toro play their maybe best movie ever!

^Great movie indeed.

Casino
Movie that I've wanted see for a long time turned out to be GoodFellas goes Las Vegas, with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci playing the same characters and Sharon Stone replacing Lorraine Bracco. Not that it was bad though, Martin Scorsese couldn't make a bad movie even if he put all the effort on it.

Casino Royale
Honestly, one of the greatest Bond-movies ever. Daniel Graig isn't a typical Bond-actor and the movie itself brought something new to the series.

The Grudge
Slightly different from most american "horror"-movies in the last 10-15 years, but it didn't help me from losing interest in it after 5 minutes of watching.

Koroshiya 1 / Ichi The Killer
Fucked up, ultra-violent Japanese crime-movie. Liked it. :P

Tomorrow I'll (finally) see 300. 8)

Two films by the Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki: Mies vailla menneisyyttä and I Hired A Contract Killer. Love both of them.

The Bourne Identity - not too extraordinary, but nevertheless exciting thriller with a soooooo cute Franka Potente. :)

The Bourne Supremacy

weaker than part 1. Bad camera work, too short appearance of Franka Potente, and after the first half almost no further story development. Nevertheless, okay for watching on an evening when you know nothing else to do. ;-)

Aeon Flux and Star Trek 6 with Rifftrax commentary, absolutely hilarious stuff ... It is the only reasonable way to see Aeon Flux, BTW ...

Introducing the New Incredible Hulk(Hunk?)!
Edward Norton!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6559031.stm

Edward Norton? He's the guy who put in a stellar, very much praised role in Kingdom of Heaven as "The Leper King".

Hmmmmmmmm. ;) I figured with that sexy Brando-voice there was something Nice hiding under all those flowing robes, and that silver mask! ;)

I guess Edward is going to play David Banner part of the duo. ???

Yes, Norton did play a skinhead in a movie-about 10 years ago, thats true. But, many guys(and gals) play assholes in movies, thats no reflection on them personally, IMO. Even actors have to eat! :D Robin Williams played a serial killer, so did Matthew McConagnahey, Tim Daly, and Mark Harmon, etc. etc. and so on..... :D
I think everyone knows what I mean. :D

Daredevil, again with Rifftrax commentary. It's probably the best Rifftrax commentary I've seen ...

Brick

Kind of a Neo-Noir thriller, combining the dialogues of the 40s with a scenery at the American west coast of today, with teenagers as main characters. Nice idea indeed, and technically a very very well made movie. It just didn't build up enough tension for me, most of the time I was bored while watching. Nevertheless, it works as a piece of art for me.

Æon Flux
Charlize Theron is too good for a movie like this. :P

Moonraker
Too ridiculous even for a Bond-movie. :D I still like its campy style.

Paha maa / Frozen Land
Sort of a Finnish version of Pulp Fiction, with more stories entwined and less shooting. Liked it.

Schindler's List
One of Steven Spielberg's finest works.

Kill Bills must be one of the most overrated films ever. I didn't get them. The plot is like from a comic book written for and by teenagers. I bored my ass off while watching them. A lot of subtle references to a huge amount of films, you say. I say, so what?

The Last Samurai was provocatively poor. It was on TV few days ago.

How can anyone possibly not like Kill Bills? :P The comic book -like plot and characters are just the point of those movies. I absolutely adore everything Tarantino has done (not so much Jackie Brown) and can't wait to see Grindhouse, which some motherf****** *** ***** *** **** retards have decided to separate in to two parts for Finland. :x

Forgot to list these:
Collateral
First time Tom Cruise acts at least decently.

Jin-Rô / The Wolf Brigade
One of the best anime-movies I've seen.

How can anybody not like Tom Cruise (as an actor)? :)

I really think he's great. Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut? Magnolia? He's great in Collateral, his performance is what makes the film so great. And the dynamic cinematography, Mann's trademark.

I agree with you on that. As much as I like Pulp Fiction, I really dislike the Kill Bill movies. Stupid story, stupid dialogues, ...

I hate Tom Cruise for being in Scientology and trying to convince others of this greedy sect, but as an actor he's great, especially in Collateral, but also in Minority Report or Vanilla Sky.
