Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler was a 70’s Grindhouse splatterfest movie? I don’t know about you, but that’s a question that’s on my mind every day. From the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, I ponder in deep thought whether I’ll ever….yeah alright just watch the damn video already.

A Study in Sh#t

Posted in News, Trailers with tags , , , on October 20, 2009 by The Count

The new trailer of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movie has been released and I simply can’t hate it more.

I’m duty bound to watch anything with Mark Strong in (because he’s consistently awesome) so am most likely going to see this heap of refuse when it’s released at Christmas but, as I did previously after watching a certain summer blockbuster (go to hell Michael Bay), I have an extremely strong suspicion I will exit afterwards with a bad taste in my mouth and a new suggestion for worst film of the year.

Brett Ratner confesses that he’s the Antichrist.

Following rumours that Bryan Singer may return to make the X-Men movies good again Brett Ratner has come out to show the world why people should thank him:

“You can’t make these people happy.  I’m kind of the Anti-Christ to these comic book geeks.  Every single person that wrote (sic) s**t went to see that movie multiple times because a movie doesn’t gross $200 something million unless people go to see it more than once.  Every single person who said, ‘I’m never seeing that movie,’ they were the first ones there. “What are they concerned about?  It’s out of the filmmaker’s hands.  A film is a collaborative effort.  How’s a person sitting at home going to worry about how a movie is going to turn out to be?  I just know one thing: mine outgrossed the other two by far.  Mine was the one that made the most narrative sense.  And I’m not knocking Bryan’s movie but he just does a certain thing;  Bryan uses his brain and I use my eye and my instincts more.  It’s a whole different approach to making a movie.  I’m not saying my movie wasn’t smart; I just wasn’t intellectualising it.  I was just looking at it as pure entertainment value which is what it was.”

“The most ridiculous statement I’ve read is – and of course I looked at the internet after the movie came out – that I buried the franchise.  If I buried the franchise how the f**k did they make a Wolverine (spin-off)? I mean, that’s ridiculous.  And they’re making three other f**king X-Men movies.  Mine kept the franchise alive!”

Yeah nice work Ratner.  You sure convinced your critics – I reckon we should officially make you a godamned saint.

Post apocalyptic sandworms Vs hot girls packing heat.

Posted in News, Trailers with tags , , , , , , on October 12, 2009 by The DvS

Whether the giant sandworm is a metaphor, or for us to question if Frank Herbert was actually compensating for something when he wrote them into Dune is clouding the issue that on screen, a giant sandworm is awesome for your post apocalyptic universe. If you’re a red blooded male like me, you’d also find that female survivors in post apocalyptic universes are extremely attractive, especially when holding a large weapon between their fingers (Behave, filthpig!). Then we thank Mamoru Oshii, director of Ghost in The Shell, for expanding his world first shown in his short film Assault Girl: Hinako The Kentucky by making a feature length movie, entitled Assault Girls. It’s only a movie Blammo could love.

Again, this is a totally you-snooze-you-lose affair, rumour has it this may get pulled very very quickly. Toy Story fans unite though as the third instalment is almost ready to throw it’s CG mess in your face. This time round, grand owner of toys, Andy has grown up and is off to college. This means he doesn’t want his toys anymore! Gasp! Off to a day-care center for them, opening up a whole new world of plastic adventures. Oh cmon I’ll watch it…(Thanks to GeekTyrant)

Speaking of which…(a nicely linked newsround)

The man with the most unusual nose in movies, Adrien Brody, is starring in a movie called Splice. It also stars Sarah Polley from the Dawn Of The Dead remake (yum), and the intrepid pair study and tinker with things in their laboratory until they grow their own beastie baby from a mixture of genetics. Clearly, things are going to go wrong and I’ll put it down to the “unstable” formula that will cause the beastie baby to grow at an accelerated rate and start munching on people. Why’s this? Oh, because I really can’t see Cube director Vincenzo Natali making a family movie detailing the raucous antics of Benny The Beastie Baby whilst delivering a strong heartwarming message about how not to get involved with crack peddlers. Clip please? Thanks.
