LOL, another...
"Ryan Leston did claim to ease drop on some of the conversations..."
Eavesdrop!

On topic -- Love that they are using real locales and people!
Music is horrible -- distracting. If your goal is for us to watch with only staging in mind, omit the music all together. You should be drawn in not pushed out. Just hit mute folks.
There was no "who shot first", one shot only and it was Han.

F##K Yes, we want it!
Personally, I think 20th is jumping the shark here. 20th will take a big hit on this franchise, if between the production costs of third of a billion plus (and marketing on top of that each) is true. To be considered profitable it'll have to hit a bare minimum 900 mil per pic. For sequels! I just don't see that happening for all three.

Avatar 1 was a fluke, very pretty with a ham-fisted story -- the wow factor visually was what carried it. I can't see the next three installments being any different. I can't imagine the visual styling/novelty will carry for three more installments. Dessert with no entree - fool me once as they say. 2 will do okay, but 3 and 4 ouch! I hope to be dis-proven as I want 20th to stick around, but I have a bad feeling.

Beating folks over the head with a "message" will further limit the appeal. If however done in a clever subtle way it will not be an issue. But based on the last installment, a clever and subtle message is not in Cameron's quiver. He's a stylist not a story teller.
Into Darkness? Maybe he plans on omitting lens flares. lol

Dufus caper flick with a sperm macguffin - paaahlease! Probably took 5 minutes to write.

As I posted in the other Lockout thread...

I wanted to like this movie (I like Guy in most of his stuff). Sad to report, this movie was utter garbage. CGI was SyFy TV level stuff. The editing was horrible. Huge plot holes. Cheap sets - you could see them move when bumped into or hit. The story was a long string of cliche's loosely strung together. Real disappointment. Better luck on your next outing Mr. Pearce.

Zonbie killin' fun! How can you not want to see this campy sh*t!
Saw it already, it was called Wolverine.
Took my son to see Mall Cop. It was good for a couple chuckles, but by no means a great movie. It is just a movie that folks can take the kids to and not worry about content (rare it seems), so it's a no brainer it made good box office (parents and kids going together 2 for 1 = $$).

Has comedic potential, but so did Ishtar.
Hey Chad, I stand by my post 100 percent. Will Smith is in the same boat as Julia Roberts (job one: putting butts in seats). McG said "I've been wanting to work with him and that guy's great" -- what the f*ck do you expect him to say -- he is great -- at getting butts in seats and at being Will Smith. Of course he wants him, for the reason I stated, hell so would I if I had a stake in the project and just wanted box office -- it is a biz afterall. But if I wanted a seriously good film (lasting, iconic) I'd have a damn good story and exceptional actors (major chops). There is no way Will would make a great Nemo. I like Will in many roles, but this one is not right for him.

BTW, I like that tardhatch comment I'll have to remember that one, you scroat! lol
In the words of Will Smith -- Aww, Hell no!

The fact that they are trying this indicates to me that this project will suck. They are worried about drawing crowds based on name and not a good production. Really sad to read this.
brunchking wrote a comment about the news item Oliver Stone Getting Presidential Again
Should be a comedy! After watching the PBS doc*mentary on Hugo -- the guy is obviously a nut job and the folks there are starting to realize it. Promise the people everything and deliver nothing but being worse off. Top that with a guy who rules with an iron thumb deepening paranoia - ripe environment for comedy. I imagine Stone got funding from Hugo himself (having visited him many times) so expect a major propaganda flick - wait what else have we got from this guy anyway. >roll eyes
