I'm used to him with a lot more facial hair than that!
    I actually think he's better looking as George Kirk than Thor.

    It's a good action movie ... B+.

    Definitely not as heavy or dark as any of the Batman films. Russell Crowe is great (he has a considerable amount of screentime), as is Kevin Costner. There's a tragic element that goes beyond the destruction of Krypton. Heavy on the mayhem and destruction.

    I interviewed Henry in person on Friday, and he's lost a lot of the bulk. He is absolutely massive in the movie, busting out of all of his clothes.

    I took super close-up shots of the costume (they had them on display)...PM me and I can email them to you. It's textured but it didn't detract from the film.

    For those of you into such things, he shaves his beard in the film, but not his chest.

    Psch, whatevs, PeterG, his facial hair is more pronounced in the actual movie.

    The Thor-ish look, on the other hand, is pretty damned good. Because of the -ish.

    I noticed with the last thread that there were movies on the release schedule that did not have trailers out when I started the thread. This happened even more with this new thread. So I've decided to include the movies already listed with the new (smaller and independent) releases each week. I'll start with the bigger movies:

    June 7th - The Purge - Sci-Fi Thriller with Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey and Rhys Wakefield
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0LLaybEuzA

    June 7th - Violet & Daisy - Action comedy drama with Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel, Danny Trejo, James Gandolfini and Marianne Jean-Baptiste
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7CdL8xXmxE

    June 7th - Much Ado About Nothing - Comedy with Amy Acker and Nathan Fillion
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAMsDP_DMHE

    June 7th - The Internship - Comedy with Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ben Kingsley and John Goodman
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdnoqCViqUo



    And the smaller and/or independent movies being releases this week (my comments after the list):

    June 7 Tiger Eyes (Drama with new cast and Cynthia Stevenson and Russell Means)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdqMpHvlA7s

    June 7 The Wall (Fantasy drama, new cast. From imdb.com: “A woman inexplicably finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall suddenly surrounds the countryside.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qa-Lo4RSpw

    June 7 Wish You Were Here (Drama mystery with Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbDVy67No7k

    June 7 Finding Joy (Comedy with new cast and Barry Bostwick and Lainie Kazan)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyqpC2fszXc

    June 7 Passion (Drama mystery thriller with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gadidJeMsE0

    June 7 Dirty Wars (Docu-drama. From imdb.com: “Investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill is pulled into an unexpected journey as he chases down the hidden truth behind America's expanding covert wars.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KpzBAKJmig

    June 7 Syrup (Romantic comedy drama with Amber Heard, Shiloh Fernandez, Brittany Snow, Kellan Lutz and Rachel Dracht)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6GCDAcvuCs

    June 7 Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie (From imdb.com: “Long before O'Reilly and Beck, Morton Downey, Jr., was tearing up the talk-show format with his divisive populism. Between the fistfights, rabid audience, and Mort's cigarette smoke always ‘in your face’… ”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpQm_us_UiU

    June 7 Rapture-Polooza (Comedy fantasy horror with Anna Kendrick, Ken Jeong, Craig Robinson and Ana Gasteyer)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oaS_N1zsqo

    June 7 La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus (Documentary about U.S. school buses driven to Guatemala for repair. From imdb.com: “Since 2006, nearly 1,000 camioneta drivers and fare-collectors have been killed for not paying the extortion money demanded by local gangs.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1GaSg6WBZk

    June 7 Hey Bartender (Documentary. From imdb.com: “Two bartenders try to achieve their dreams through bartending.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HUwmDqi2kA

    June 7 Hello Herman (Drama with Norman Reedus [The Walking Dead] and Rob Estes)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Lz_iS5cYY

    A JUDY BLUE MOVIE!!!! (Am I dating myself?) Tiger Eyes has a decent trailer, but I think I read all of Ms. Blume's books in my youth. So I'm definitely in for this one. I'm hoping it's a WONDERFUL movie with a decent trailer. The Wall looks like it could be either really great, or WAY too much navel-gazing. Finding Joy might be a sweet sleeper.

    A lot of the other stuff is crap or downright offensive. If you are Christian (or even close) you might want to avoid "Rapture-Polooza" like the plague. I'm an atheist and I found this trailer to be AWFUL. Hello Herman looks pretty bad too, like the people who made it had no idea of how to deal with the subject of a mass shooting at a high school. Passion looks very boring (with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace in the cast???) and Syrup looks YUCKY. Horrible subject and a great cast playing awful people....what a disappointment.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Screening "The Purge" tomorrow night.

    Probably not going to preview "World War Z" as the screening falls on my birthday. Somehow missed a half-dozen "Much Ado About Nothing" screenings, which I'm mad about it because I love Shakespeare.

    I wanted Loki, evil as he was... I'm very excited about Thor: The Dark World and is hoping it would come out this summer, but it's coming out in November...

    I finally watched Iron Man 3 last week. I like it a lot, especially the "party protocol". But, just like in Avengers, I find the comedic scenes a bit much. I wonder if Marvel is going to continue in this direction. I really hope they aren't going to do it to Thor 2 Thor 1 was perfect

    Variety's review for "World War Z".

    Rising from an early grave of negative pre-release publicity, director Marc Forster and producer-star Brad Pitt’s much-maligned “World War Z” emerges as a surprisingly smart, gripping and imaginative addition to the zombie-movie canon, owing as much to scientific disaster movies like “The China Syndrome” and “Contagion” as it does to undead ur-texts like the collected works of George Romero.

    Bummer. What a waste of good actresses. At least I've been warned and will not waste time on it.
