kupo wrote a comment about the news item Tom Cruise Not Done with Les Grossman
the character was pretty funny in tropic thunder, but mostly because there was alot of the shock factor running behind it. Cruise has been called crazy in the headlines alot, so seeing him kinda make fun of his own antics was fairly surprising.

It's like when they had Cruise play as austin powers in gold member. It was a nice special guest appearance, nothing more than that. I honestly dont see this character as being able to hold up a feature-length film. The surprising fun factor has worn off. If i saw tom cruise rapping and dancing again, i wouldn't even show as much of a smirk.
I've never had high standards to begin with, but this film definitely meets my expectations.

It even has the similar exaggerated effects stephen chow is known for, so no surprise there

I agree that this movie doesn't look too great--at the moment, but i still have high hopes for it, since stephen chow is overseeing the project as producer. I absolutely love his films, especially shaolin soccer. So maybe some of that charm will rub off onto the film and its director James Wong.

And btw, wth are you talking about? Mortal Kombat being bad? That was actually the only decent videogame movie ever made, it was the sequel that was horrible.

Eriko Tamura is not the one wearing the white gown, that's Jamie Chung from "The Real World" (yes that horrible mtv show)

Tamura is the one in the last pic, wearing a maroon colored suit.

@agent VIS

You sir, make a good point
It would be great to see him progress even further as a hero
I think alot of people are going to be reluctant to watch a film they know nothing about, its story is almost entirely shrouded in secrecy, but that's good. Nowadays films become easily spoiled by reviews, trailers and short clips.

good review, im glad you didn't spoil anything.

Honestly i think one of the most intense ways to grip an audience emotionally would have to be killing off a main character.

They did it in 3, and i really think it wasn't executed too well. But, say if they were to tragically kill off mary jane or aunt may like in the comics, that would be meaningful in alot of ways.

Doing so could be the motivation that drives Spiderman to become more obsessed with being a hero. Then there will be alot of guilt and internal conflict, where he questions himself, such as "How can he save the people of New York City from harm, if he can't save the ones most dear to him"

they could possibly build the whole premise of the story around that

@phil mata

i supported heath ledger since day 1, mainly because i knew he was a good actor. He has always made the emphasis to create a distinct character opposite from his own and unique from his last role. Have you seen his transitions from character to character? In brokeback mountain he played a homosexual cowboy with a amazingly realistic southern accent. So my statement about Rhona Mitra; she played a role in doomsday, i've never heard of her and after watching a few clips of her, i still think her acting isn't that great. most of her notable roles were on television. So she's just as laughable as when they rumoured Brian Austin Green as a possible choice for the Riddler.

please don't compare heath's situation to her's
heath was a high profile actor who was obviously gonna give a high profile performance
Rhona is still fairly unknown and her acting isn't all that great.

thats why i don't want her to play as catwoman

seriously i've seen heath in his earlier films like 10 things i hate about you and a knight's tale, and even then i noticed how much potential he had.

Rhona's history in acting is nothing compared to heath's or daniel's

oh god no!

i've never even heard of her, and she's not that beautiful. Is she even a good actor? We need strictly a-list actors for nolan's batman films

please, please... don't do this to me
well hell they have Robin Chou and Edmund Chen in there, at least we're guaranteed to have some decent fight scenes.
that guy's a horrible interviewer

first he takes chris' words out of context, then he gets his info wrong about chris having a sister.

the facial animations are a bit stiff when they speak

but other than that, the zombies look great and the g monsters look flawless.

btw movieweb whats up with the 2nd vid's title? "everybody's gonna get a 'metal'?"

kupo wrote a comment about the news item EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: 2 New Max Payne Video Clips!
i was hoping for a more noir style feel, with max payne narrating parts of the story just like the game.

But this is probably the first video game to film adaptation that i might actually like, it looks great so far
kupo wrote a comment about the news item New Dragonball Teaser Hits Hard!
im worried now, i don't see the dinosaurs or unique buildings and vast valleys

this film seems to be set in a more realistic reality rather than the rich, creative environment the anime conveyed

they dont even have goku's signature monkey tail or his nimbus cloud- even though it might sound extremely ridiculous, check out this vid

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kvzw90N27s0

at least they tried to stay close to the monkey king folklore, he may not have the tail in that vid, but hes got the nimbus cloud and the pole stick
