Damn. That's one cheesy title. I really liked the former best.

Just watched The Illusionist, it was very good but it didn't pay attention to detail as The Prestige did but I still liked it.

Edward Norton is an impressive choice for the role of Bruce Banner.

However, the film makers will try and use the theme of realism and thus use it as an excuse to deficate all ove the source material. None of the incompetent film makers have hardly stayed true and honor the source material.

The one with Eric Bana wasn't that great and now his replacement is Edward Norton. A great actor!
You guys know if its a prequel, sequel, or something?

The Incredible Hulk is a sequel to 2003 film.

I saw "Perfume: the story of a murderer"

I strongly recommend reading the book (of the same title, by Patrick Suskind) before you watch the movie, though. Otherwise you'll spew your popcorn. :P

I loved it, it was excellently adapted from the book, and Ben Whishaw's performance is impeccable. Rachel Hurd-Wood just sits there and looks pretty, but the effect is ruined when she opens her mouth...she was much better flying around in "Peter Pan".

The photography was breath-taking...the images were so clear, it completely transported you. Amazing :)

Not that I don't like Edward Norton, but... Duchovney as the Hulk? Come on. That would have been awesome.

exactly. Edward's a good actor, but he IS no "Hulk" i dont even want to see him like that.

I wanted to see that movie, but ti never came out where i live (shocking).

The movie looked very interesting. the trailer reminded me of (Marry Shelly's) Frankenstein. the movie with De Nior. Like the tanks with the bodies preserving them and such, lol.






:edit:

I so did not mean to post twice.... :?

That's funny because it's the exact opposite. He's one of the most tortured people in his universe and he deserves to at least be rich since he can't get anything else he wants, which believe me, is not money. Plus, he uses his money to fight crime, not to be powerful. Now, Lex Luthor is a rich ahole. I couldn't identify with Bruce more. But what else is new, he always gets a bad wrap. So misunderstood. He's not just some spoiled rich kid.

And as for Girth Ledger playing Joker, I have mixed feelings about it. The picture is somewhat odd, but not surprising. They are intending to be darker and less "cartoony". They're following Alan Moore's take on Joker, or at least they're supposed to be. Anyway, I just heard that apparently when interviewed, Ledger said he never read any comics, the producers never gave him any comics to study up on except The Killing Joke (proud owner of an original copy btw) and he said, "yeah, uh, I think it's the beginning of the Joker or something..." Take from that what you will.

ugh, Lex Luthor. My boyfriend loves him... he just shaved his head. :?

i think my favorite comic book 'super natural' hero is probably Spiderman. I'm not that into him, but he's one of the only heroes (that i know of) that was born a normal person whose just trying to fit in, and along the way a freak accident happened to him.

.. i also think his moves are sexy. :oops:

I love the fact that these new Batman films have at least one foot in reality. Scarecrow was also very different from the comic version (from what I've seen anyway) but I thought he was wonderfully realized in the film.

Yeah, I could've used more, actually. I didn't really like wost Batman eras, but I dug the move, and what they did with SC was most of it.

:lol: Damn, that's precisely what I told my sister...I'll have to watch Rainman or something to get back whatever little respect I had for him that got lost.

Dana wrote:The Fountain - For as important as its message appeared to be, and as grief-stricken the character were for the entire film, it had very little emotional impact on me. Which I find disappointing, because I like Aronofsky and was looking forward to this. But it was basically one scene that was stretched out for an hour and a half, taking place in 3 different times with a lot of pretentious imagery.


My favourite film from last year :evil:
