Sep 4th 2007 4:30PM As much as I hate to give Zombie any credit. The movie was very good!
It did have a few flaws related to the pace of the story and the production \ continuity quality but not to the point that I was unsatisfied with the film. It does reflect poorly on the director.
Well, worth seeing! I'm hungry for more!
Sep 4th 2007 4:22PM Secretly, I am thrilled by the idea of new talent taking original source material and turning upside down. Initially, I am always skeptical but if you go in with an open mind you may find that you appreciate and enjoy another film makers take on a classic.
I think we need to get away from the idea that a re imagining detracts or degrades the source material. A re imagining honors its predecessors and in some cases reignites interest in the original. For example, I am beyond thrilled that a younger generation has discovered the original Halloween because of Rob Zombie's remake.
Not that they will always work, but they deserve a fair chance. I'd love to see someone take a shot at The Wizard of OZ (though i would prefer it to be someone like Tim Burton rather than Todd MacFarlane).
Aug 31st 2007 1:33PM I can't believe someone freely admitted to seeing Jack Frost 2. The first installment was superior.
I can't believe I just typed that...
Aug 31st 2007 11:11AM I can't say that I am looking forward to this nor that I have any respect for Rob Zombie as a director. The only thing that he has proven thus far is that he is a one note hack who makes mediocre but not necessarily terrible films.
However, considering Halloween and Michael Myers to be placed third behind Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhee shows lack of understanding of the genre by Ryan.
Arguably, Halloween paved the way for it's predecessors who never captured the fear and atmosphere of Carpenter's classic. Let's be honest, Freddy and Jason became nothing more than cartoons or caricatures of themselves.
But to be fair, during their goden age, each one brought something new and fresh and should all be revered equally.
Aug 28th 2007 1:19PM Somedays, I feel like the only person who is not buying into the hype of this movie. Any movie that needs this much hype will never live up to the expectation of the audience.
Not to mention that JJ Abrams should be considered one of the single greatest mondern day promoters. He can take great piles of crap (Alias, Lost) and convince people that they are watching something compelling and intelligent.
Have we all forgotten he is responsible for "pearls" like "Felicity", "Joy Ride" and "Armageddon"?
Aug 15th 2007 1:34PM I think Batman is the single most quotable movie ever. I try to work it into everyday conversation with gems like:
"Never rub another mans rubarb"
"This town needs an enema!"
"...I though I was a Pisces."
"..because I bought it Japan."
Aug 3rd 2007 1:21PM I really love all of the excuses people are making like she's a nice person, she was doing it for her brother or she didnt know it was against the law I wonder if these excuses apply to all crimes? Next time I get a speeding ticket I'll suggest I didnt know it was against the law.
I'm also not sure that the theatre operators could have handled approaching the girl themselves. I don't think I've seen a patron thrown out by an usher in over 10 years. God knows in this day in age you might be called racist for suggesting someone leave.
I mean, have you ever asked someone to be quiet when they are talking during the movie? You run the risk of getting in a fight or stabbed.
They did the right thing by calling the cops and she deserves whatever penalty, if any, is set forth by the court
Aug 3rd 2007 11:47AM You are obviously a typical liberal moron.
There are laws in this country that must be abided by. We cannot enforce them selectivly just because she seems like a nice person.
This is like saying we can't enforce immigration laws just because these criminals happen to be mommies and daddies.
So I guess this means I can pirate all of movies and music that I want and because I'm a nice guy I should get away with it.
