    KICKASS: The good: it's directed by Matthew Vaughn. The bad: Nic Cage is in it.

    The trailer however looks pretty good.

    They are both based on a short story by Richard Matheson, and if you don't know who he is, go look him up. You probably know more than a few of his stories.

    He is the guy Stephen King looked up to when it came to horror.

    The Road

    John Hillcoat directed. Cormac McCarthy wrote. Viggo Mortensen acted. So did Charlize Theron.

    So, honestly, why the fuck has Twentieth Century Fox (or whatever production company its under) postponed its release date three times??

    Richard Matheson's stories weren't even watchable with Will Smith acting, I expect them to fuck it up again pretty much no matter what.

    Video got taken down. Here's the official trailer on itunes.

    Looks pretty hilarious. I think movies set in restaurants are always funnier having worked in several throughout my years as well.

    "You have to dominate the swordfish. Only then can you saute it"

    Here's another trailer with mostly similar but still a few different scenes.

    "The trailer for Prachya Pinkaew's Chocolate. The director of ONG BAK, Prachya Pinkaew returns with his new protégé, Jeeja Vismistananda, who was in training for five years for this role. Jeeja portrays an autistic girl who learns martial arts from watching Tony Jaa and Bruce Lee films so as to exact revenge on those who bankrupted her mother."

    I know that there are a few fans of Cormac McCarthy on this board.
    And I found this little gem this morning; http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 74572.html

    Not sure if he's pimping THE ROAD or not.

    WSJ: But is there something compelling about the collaborative process compared to the solitary job of writing?

    CM: Yes, it would compel you to avoid it at all costs.


    WSJ: How does that ticking clock affect your work? Does it make you want to write more shorter pieces, or to cap things with a large, all-encompassing work?

    CM: I'm not interested in writing short stories. Anything that doesn't take years of your life and drive you to suicide hardly seems worth doing.


    This article is filled with so much cool. I'd love to sit down and have a few beers with this guy.

    Here's the new exteneded HD trailer for James Cameron's Avatar, the most technically complex movie in the history of film and it looks mesmerizing. It's shot with the new FUSION 3D camera that's supposed to change special effects forever.

    Does anyone know what happened with The Road? I checked a few places and it still says a wide release date set for tomorrow, but somehow isn't showing anywhere in Minnesota. Google lists a theater in Edina showing it, but then when you go to that company's website it's not listed anywhere. I have to assume it got pushed back, but for some reason I can't find the new release date. Maybe it just switched to slow roll out? Anyone know?

    This: http://theplaylist.blogspot.com/2009/11 ... lease.html

    was the best link I could find about it. Seems they are being fucking retards and having a roll out release, in 31 markets I guess. I don't care about why or when or whatever. At this point all I care about is that them getting that fucking movie to Oahu at some fucking point. This bullshit has me seriously worried I won't be able to see it in theaters.

    It's got me thinking that the studio doesn't believe the movie will perform well in the holiday season. Your average consumer who hasn't read the book would probably rather watch Twilight or A Christmas Carol. Just my thoughts.

    Yeah, it definitely looks like a lack of confidence. They were supposed to open wide today and then just recently 'changed their mind' and decided to only open in 31 markets. It really pisses me off, but it's probably true that the movie doesn't have wide commercial appeal. Based on reviews I've seen it was a very loyal adaptation from the book.

    When I read the summary for this movie, I thought it'd be a lot more misogynist. 44 Inch Chest, wherein Ray Fucking Winstone, Tom Wilkinson, and Deadwood's Al Swearengen beat the shit out of a tied up Frenchman for an hour and a half.
