Who F*%#ed Up Roger Rabbit

Posted in News on September 22, 2010 by The Count

This can only end in tears.  My tears.

Bob Hoskins has signed up to star in a sequel to his hit 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit – but he’s sceptical over plans to make the follow-up film fully animated.

Last year the British actor claimed he had “no plans” to make any more movies, but now Hoskins has confirmed reports he will be reprising his role as detective Eddie Valiant in the cartoon film.

But he’s concerned about the new project because bosses plan to deviate from the innovative original format which saw a live action cast integrated with cartoon characters.

He tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph, “I don’t know how it’s going to work out. The format they want to do is the same as we did for (2009 animated movie) A Christmas Carol. The thing is, it looks like a cartoon, so how do you put a cartoon in the middle of a cartoon? I can’t figure out how they are going to do it.”

Scott Pilgrim & The Blammo Adventure

Scott Pilgrim vs The World is the movie adaptation of a 6 part comic series by Bryan Lee O’Malley, which lets face it nobody had ever heard of before it was picked up by Edgar Wright and made into a movie! It stars Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim who falls in love with a cute girl and has to battle her seven evil ex’s to win her heart… no really thats what it’s about.

Full disclosure before we kick off, I’m gay for Michael Cera (no homo). I’ve been reading a lot of comments recently (not on here obviously, we don’t get any comments aside from rants from butthurt assistant directors and drunks.) and I’ve noticed a trend I just didn’t see coming… You people hate Michael Cera! I don’t understand?! I’ve been a fan since he first explained what a “mayonegg” was in Arrested Development, I’ve seen most of his stuff since then and whist Year One was pretty much the worst movie I’ve ever seen,  I can’t really put the blame on Cera and it certianly wouldn’t stop me from enjoying any other Micahel Cera projects.

Turbo Review Round Up

Posted in Reviews on September 6, 2010 by The Count

I’m so damned lazy that sometimes I struggle to even hit the auto spell correct button on a blog… never mind actually write stuff.

However The DVS is away moving house so in a moment of weakness I thought it best to do an article or something to keep the ball rolling or whatever.  However laziness dictates I have to keep it short and weak at best (so I don’t get asked to do anything more regular) so here’s a turbo review round up of the films I’ve seen over the last few months:
