I'm not really excited about Simon Kinberg directing the new X-Men movie. He hasn't directed anything before. He's had some good scripts but he's also had some complete shit. To me this move seems like he's a writer/director for hire. I'm thinking that it'll be a just rehash of similar visuals and tone as the Singer X-Men films. While I did enjoy Apocalypse it was painfully obvious there needed to be some new blood in the franchise and Kinberg is not that new blood at all.

The Missing with Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett is such an underrated western.

James Earl Jones was cast as Mufasa in the live-action remake of The Lion King. Seriously, could we see anybody else playing Mufasa? He just is Mufasa.

Apparently Joe Carnahan is going to direct the U.S. remake of The Raid with Frank Grillo still attached to star. This is awesome but anytime I hear about Carnahan being attached to direct something I don't like to get too excited. The man has probably started and quit more movies than any one I can think of off the top of my head.

Grillo's been attached for years and years to that Raid remake

It does seem like Grillo was announced for the remake a long time ago, like even before The Raid 2 came out

Just posted my review of The Hurt Locker. I started writing it a few weeks back but between house buying, moving, school, work, and other things I just wasn't able to finish it up until sitting my ass at work on third shift on a very slow night. I had intended on getting to a few more Best Picture winners for Oscar month but I think Hurt Locker may be the only one I get to before the Oscars. As I was finishing up my rather wordy review (a little over 2,000) it hit me that if I put as much effort into other aspects of life as I do these reviews when I write them (my last 4-5 have been quite lengthy) I would be a track to being the first millionaire in my family. Seriously I would have finished college early instead of dicking around trying to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up. I probably would have went to law school and probably end up in politics. Oh well, can't say I don't enjoy it though.

Certain tasks are labors of love. Sometimes, others are not. And, interest can make a huge difference in what one does in life. John Milton wrote of how one spends his light, and it is a personal decision that we all make.

The Hurt Locker



2009-hurt_locker-1

Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow
Written by: Mark Boal
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, David Morse, Evangeline Lilly, Guy Pearce, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty
Studio: Summit Entertainment
Genre: Drama
Official Site: www.thehurtlocker-movie.com
Plot: An explosive ordnance disposal team in Iraq has a little over a month before their tour of duty is over. They get a new leader that may cause them to not see the end of that month.

Review:

Almost every year the Best Picture winner at the Oscars is divisive. They are movies generally loved by critics but once they hit the public, people generally have a different opinion. There are movies like The Godfather that are practically universally loved by critics and audiences alike, there are years that people will argue until their dying breathe that the movie that won at no right winning (me with Titanic and Forrest Gump) and then there are movies like No Country Old Men that fall into a love it or hate column. I guess the Oscars are indicative of film itself, there is no true universally loved movie and there's really no singular movie that is hated my everybody. To me The Hurt Locker is a very interesting Best Picture winner because the people who love it absolutely love it and consider it to be a defining movie of the era. The people who hate it fucking loathe it and consider it the some the worst representation of our Service People on screen. I personally belong in the former category...[more]...

For some reason I'm having really bad anxiety over the whole Batman directing now. It's probably because I'm working night audit and am bored as hell so my mind is wandering. I'm really fucking worried that WB/DC is going to go with Zack Snyder (I swear he has some really heinous blackmail material on studio executives). I like MoS and BvS but I think it'd be stupid to allow Snyder to direct many more DCEU movies because they have been divisive. I'm also worried go with someone like Marc Forster, a guy who has no business directing action movies. I really think though that if WB/DC can't pull out an undisputed win by The Batman they need to pull the plug. Which is a shame because Ben Affleck has some huge potential as Batman. There's obviously some tinkering they have to do but I think it all is fixable.

You are right. All is fixable. However, Snyder is perhaps not the man to fix it. As you state, he is divisive. So, certain fans would already have their minds made-up going into The Batman. Furthermore, we moviefans have already seen his approach; thus, WB might benefit by presenting something new.

The superhero fad is not quite over. WB could still cash-in for themselves and contribute something great for audiences.

I stopped having hope for DCEU. All the bad news about Batman actually makes me happy because the chances of a reboot are getting higher and higher after Justice League.

Frosty_86 created a LIST: 20 days ago

The Batman Director Wishlist

1. David Fincher
2. Michael Mann
3. Kathryn Bigelow
4. Alfonso Cuaron
5. Denis Villenueve
6. David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water made such an impression on me that I think he'd survive the leap from smaller to larger films)
7. Matt Reeves (He seems like an obvious and favorite choice)
8. Gareth Evans
9. Joe Carnahan
10. John Hillcoat
11. Jeremy Saulnier
12. S. Craig Zahler
13. Antoine Fuqua (Given the right script he can work wonders even if he is hit or miss)
14. Justin Lin
15. Fede Alvarez

There's some overlap here from writer19's list (which was damn great list list) and the list on Joblo earlier today. There's alot of potential for WB/DC to bring in some new blood to the franchise. They do not to go with Zack Snyder (I'd prefer him over say Marc Forster though) as I said earlier this week. I don't think Snyder would be a very inspired choice nor do I think it would smart for them to back themselves further in to a corner.
If any of the top five happen I may not actually get see this movie because I probably would die from too much excitement. Which I don't think those will happen, it'd be pretty fucking awesome if they did.

I read a rumor yesterday that said Ridley Scott was in talks to take over as Director. That would be interesting, but it doesn't seem like the kind of thing Scott would want to be a part of. I guess we'll see!

Frosty_86 updated his STATUS: 22 days ago

I just read an article (I think from Variety) which was saying Zack Snyder is the logical choice to direct The Batman. That's completely asinine. I do like Man of Steel and BvS but it doesn't change the fact he has made to films highly divisive and chances are his Justice League movies will be the same. With D.C. having a little bit of identity crisis with their movies and finding a larger audience it doesn't make any fucking sense once so ever to give it to the guy who has made it so divisive to begin with.

Completely agree. While I enjoy MoS and BvS too, it's pretty obvious that we are in the minority. Both of Snyder's films are too polarizing to allow him to have virtually a complete monopoly on the cornerstone franchises in the DC universe. It would be way too big of a gamble and most comic book film fans would automatically pass judgment on the film before it even hit theaters.

I'll defend MoS and BvS beyond all reason, but tapping Snyder for The Batman would be the dumbest move WB could make.

Frosty_86 updated his STATUS: 23 days ago

I would fucking love it if D.C. got David Fincher or Michael Mann to direct The Batman. I think there's a very slim to never happening in a million fucking years chance of either happening.

Now with Affleck not directing The Batman I'm trying to figure out some directors I'd like to see tackle the character.

I can't say that I'm surprised about Affleck not directing The Batman. I'd prefer him to give it his all in the performance as oppose to spreading himself too thin, which I kind of think he already has as of late anyways. Now it does concern me that he said he wouldn't direct if he didn't think it was good enough. I'm a little bummed but honestly I think with these larger movies like this it'd be better if the star didn't try to direct as well. Mel Gibson even said he wouldn't do it again after Braveheart so I think it's just best for all if Affleck doesn't direct The Batman.
