renodc wrote a comment about the news item EXCLUSIVE: Eric Ladin Talks The Killing Season 2!
@skywise It depends on what you like. The Killing is very slow and methodical set to the very dreary rainy background of Seattle, which really sets the tone for this mixture of murder mystery, family drama and political drama. One critic decribed the shows pace as a "slow burn". The show has great characters with some excellent acting. There is virtually no real action, but there is lots of suspense. I think my only real gripe with the show is that they left the mystery unsolved with a major cliffhanger. The Killing is based on a popular Danish tv show that each season had one mystery that would be solved in that season's finale. That concept is what drew me to watch the Killing, and I was really ticked that they left it unsolved. Other than that, I really liked the Killing and will watch next season.

One of the cable channels (I think it was AMC) was playing both Conan films recently and I guess back when I first saw them I was so young that I just didn't pay attention to the indescribably bad acting. It was truly horrible. If they could go back in time and lobotomize Momoa before shooting this remake I still think he could do a better job than Arnold.

I love Mustafa's passion for the role, but I just don't see Marvel casting him. It would be too much of a gamble casting a relative unknown for a role that doesn't even have a lukewarm following in comic book circles.
One comment that Lucas made that I really liked and hope that others in the film industry pick up on is that it is absolutely crucial that they start finding ways to decrease swelling production budgets on feature films. These huge budgets are driving ticket prices sky high domestically, which is greatly affecting theater attendance. When you look at the numbers, it's alarming how many films either didn't make or barely covered their budgets off domestic sales in the last couple of years. If it wasn't for the foreign box office, a ridiculous number of films would have failed.

I'll admit the trailer got my curiosity slightly up, but the concept of robot boxers just isn't really all that appealing.
Enjoyed the review. My hatred of this film knows no bounds. If by some chance Joel Schumacher had of been sitting next to me when Batman whipped out his Bat-Credit Card, I believe I would have physically maimed him.

@whitebutazn I'm pretty sure Jeri Ryan who plays Sonya is in her early to mid 40's.
I feel pretty confident that there is no way Cruise or Depp would take this role.
WETA just continues to raise the bar.

Wasn't Sylvester Stallone's Lockdown pretty much the same premise?

Imogen Poots!! Seriously? What a horrible name.

Bloom's role is probably more about marketing than storytelling.

To me, Emmerich and Michael Bay are very similiar. They know special effects, but can't tell a story worth a cr@p.
renodc wrote a comment about the news item Anonymous Trailer
That's the problem with Emmerich's films is they always look like they are going to be incredible, but they always end up lacking in substance. Typically they're just over-baked plot hole filled melodramatic action films with cheesy dialogue and beautiful scenery.

Whoever directs this film is going to have a whale of a task trying to do this book justice. Just managing the vast numbers of characters without just completely confusing the viewer, will be a monumental task alone.
The first trailer was so full of quick cuts that you really couldn't tell much from it, so I'm still holding out hope.
Surely, J.J. Abrams will get on board.

Warner's first attempt to get a JLA film off the ground was a disaster waiting to happen, and thankfully it got axed. Hopefully, they go at this with a little more time and thought this go around. Unfortunately, Warner has a reputation when they've got a good thing going they start smelling money and start throwing crap together as fast as possible to strike while the iron is hot.
