I have to say that I'm morbidly curious about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter . :lol:

Other that that I'm looking forward to Brave (it looks gorgeous) and counting down the days until the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises.

Me too. :D When we saw the trailer for it my friend and I both burst out laughing -- then immediately made a date to go see it!

I tend to wait for DVD for most movies, but the I'll almost certainly see Dark Night on the big screen, and possibly Snow White & the Hunter.

Another Movie Starring Taylor Kitsch?! Dare I say that the prospects for that movie is not great. :lol:

I agree completely. Plus it looks like it's a great story. Plus it's Pixar's first movie to feature a female lead. :)

I was planning on putting this one in the poll, but I thought the trailer was abysmal. Maybe there's another trailer out there better than the one I looked at (I usually go with the one that has the most views on youtube). So maybe I picked an older trailer and there's a much better newer one. Still, I'm interested in this movie, I'll wait until I get better info and/or wait to see how it does at the box office.

I recall a couple of vampire movies he was in which made a few bucks. :P

(OK, reposting this coz Peter closed off the previous thread shortly after I posted it there ...)

I saw a real gem of a sleeper movie last night: Perfect Sense (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1439572/). To be perfectly honest, the only reason I picked this one up was because it stars Ewan McGreggor, and I'll watch him in anything. And on that level I was not disappointed -- he deliverered his usual quality performance, with a little bonus full-frontal nudity too! (Yes, I did hit the rewind & pause buttons. Want to make something of it?)

But there is so much more to the film than just Ewan. I don't want to say too much to give it away, but suffice it to say it's about as far removed from a Hollywood disaster/epidemic movie as you can possibly get. (It reminded me a lot in tone of Last Night, the Canadian end-of-the-world film from 1998). It's about personal connections and everyday human exisistance, and filled with some stunning imagery and metaphors -- without being over-intellectual or too "artsy," IYKWIM.

Anyway, I loved it, and highly recommend looking for it.

I just watched the trailer at youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iexMJrBzZtA). Gosh, it looks like a real downer! :(

Snow White and the Huntsman doesn't interest me that much, but I've seriously considered going to see it just for the Les Mis trailer. :D

Sorry, did you not read the part about Ewan McGreggor and full frontal nudity? :D (Eva Green gets nekkid too for those that-way inclined.)

But seriously ... while the trailer captures the tone of the film quite well (not always the case of course), it was really was a very life-affirming kind of film IMO.

Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones look like they play off of each other beautifully (and hilariously) in "Hope Springs."

05-29-2012, 02:19 AM
I might consider seeing Snow White if it starred anyone else but Kristen Steward. :P. But I am considering watching Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, so help me! LOL

In one of the earlier threads, the animated movie "Tangled" was referred to as a bomb. It cost $260 million (WTH???) to make and the U.S. box office was 200 million. So a loss of 60 million, right? Which would make it a bomb for sure. But the overseas returns were 385 million. And in it's first week of release as a DVD, it made 51 million and became the #1 selling DVD of 2011. The DVD was now just reached over 100 million in sales.

It's interesting how profitable some box office bombs are. :lol:
