Jan 7th 2011 10:09AM It's definitely a different angle they're playing it. I'm curious as to how well it will work considering the many changes that may be required. I understood many of the changes they made from Lord of the Rings novels to films because the Tolkein's writing style would likely not transition well to dialogue (very wordy man - even if they are many a gem). The Hobbit, on the other hand, is a more straight forward, traditional, tale in structure and writing. Seems to me they're going to be doing a lot of playing around to add that epic scope.
Jan 4th 2011 8:18PM While his morality may be debatable, I truly believe Lemmon makes CC Baxter lovable. Without him in the role it would likely be a more drawling/cynical character.
One movie I think serves rather well in relation to this is Wilder's The Fortune Cookie. It may be best known as the first Lemmon-Matthau, but it's a great example of Wilder's ability to create enjoyable situations through not the most likable characters. Granted, the ending is a bit too 'hollywood' rubbish.
Dec 23rd 2010 9:57AM This will never catch on. Just how frustrated would you get after you've seen this commercial for the fifth time and they keep telling you to close your eyes. It's a one time gimmick at best.
Dec 17th 2010 9:40AM Great Writeup! Really helped me to piece together where I should set my expectation level for when I eventually watch Tron: Legacy.
Dec 2nd 2010 2:42PM Blade 2 is one of those weird films where I know a lot of fans of the first that hate it, but I believe it's the best in the series. Those posters are awesome as well.
I'll only watch Scorpion King 3 (there was a 2?) if Zane whips out the Phantom costume. Anything short of that and it's a no sell.
