    Oh I'm definitely gong to see it now! There was a cute little story on BBC about how the quintessential American hero is actually being played by a Brit.

    The reviews I've seen fall somewhere between fanboy gushing and "at least it's better than Superman Returns"

    Or at least more action. Maybe TOO much action, but ya know...it's Zack Snyder. Beautiful, brainless action scenes are his bread and butter. I think that's what the fanboy gushing is mostly about. I estimate that a lot of the "regular folk" might have an issue with its potential (given the reviews) failure in striking a balance between Nolan Batfilm quasi-realism (how would we really react to superpowered aliens causing that much destruction) and comic book spectacle.

    I'll have Henry Cavill to look at, I'll be juuuuust fine!

    And Zimmer's music is pretty damn good too! I had fun at Tron Legacy because I had eye candy and ear candy, I'm not too picky.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW_eIeKyjSo

    I think the first eleven of these are going on my To See list! Right up to "The Stroller Strategy", which I'm undecided about. "Apostles of Comedy" has a funny trailer, but it's another one that might be a Christian film that is hiding that fact in order to reach a broader audience. I just find that kind of manipulative, so it puts me off. If they advertised it as a hilarious Christian stand-up film and I thought it was funny...then it would go on my list. I like something new and this would be something I hadn't seen before. "A Hijacking" look AMAZING. As do the five or so documentaries that follow (all of them I want to see...well, not Storm Surfers - grow up already, dudes! ). Biggest surprise: a Paul Walker movie is going on my list. Another ! But it looks really well made. Not sure about Hatchet III (as I haven't seen the first two...will I be able to understand the plot??) But I'm hoping it's a good cheesy horror flick rather than a stupid/gross-out horror flick.

    Which of these movies are you interested in?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I saw the trailer for A Highjacking about a month ago, and since I like a good thriller, I put that one on my list. It's not going into general release here (NYC); it's going to be showing at the art house Film Forum. That means making a special effort to get there to see it. The Guillotines might also be calling my name.

    Can someone close the other thread? It is really confusing me.

    Someone actually wants to see the My Little Pony movie? It doesn't even look good enough for Nick Jr. or any of the television channels. How is this happening??

    Ok, my embargo was finally lifted on "Man of Steel."

    Yes, the film is very heavy on the action, especially in the second half.

    I personally didn't care for Amy Adams in the role; her Lois Lane was less Award-winning journalist curious and more "Enchanted" curious. The way she played the character came off a little immature.

    Henry Cavill has the physicality, but was relatively flat compared to Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon. I found his dialogue to be corny in parts.

    "The Matrix" and "Battlestar Galactica" fans -- keep an eye out for many of the actors.

    I remember liking the music, and will have to look at my notes from my Hans Zimmer interview.

    Thought "The Purge" was okay. I wish

    Spoiler

    .

    I'm not going to screen "World War Z" because I'm off to New Mexico to cover the "The Lone Ranger." Any questions for Johnny Depp lol? Obviously, I'll give you my thoughts on that film.

    Nothing in this world could get me to watch The Lone Ranger. Depp is very good at doing what he does. Unfortunately what he does is Captain Jack and I see that character in whatever he does.

    Two movie recommendations:

    Midnight's Children (directed by Deepa Mehta and script by Salman Rushdie). Okay, I admit that Mehta is probably my favourite director of all time. But I knew this was a good movie when I started watching it because normally I watch a half an hour of a movie and then watch another 30 minutes the next day and then finish it a few days after that. But with a REALLY good movie, I start it and I have to finish it. Luckily with this one, I started around 8pm (the movie is 2.5 hours long). And it has a real epic feel to it, covering stories from three different generations of a family. The performances are all pitch-perfect and the movie held my attention right until the end. One quibble, which I'll spoil...

    Spoiler

    Two thumbs up, way up!

    The second recommendation is an old one now crossed off my To See list: An Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain. (Sorry about the shoddy trailer, that's all I found at youtube.) This is a sweet, silly movie - silly in the best sense of the word. Great cast and just a joy to watch for an hour and a half. Hugh Grant is at his bumbling best, probably this was early in his career before he became a caricature of himself. By the way, Hugh was two movies at imdb.com coming up since his appearance in Cloud Atlas. The one listed as being in pre-production is entitled, "Bridget Jones Baby".

    Well, we are only talking about the trailer (for Passion). It just looks like McAdams has been cast in a Sharon Stone role (a la Basic Instinct). I looooove Rachel, but I just can't see her in this kind of role. I'd love for her to prove me wrong however. I just checked the-numbers.com for box office info and of the 94 movies in release this past week, it was not listed. So I am wondering if it is going to go straight to DVD. I mean, the movie that came in last place at #94 took in $14 in revenue this last week. One theatre, two people in the theatre?? I checked imdb and Wikipedia and didn't see any definitive info about a release date. Hopefully McAdams and Rapace both got a decent paycheque from this one, if nothing else??

    Good description! I think that if I met Cavill in person, my limbs would go all gooey and become a big mess at his feet. Which would be a little embarrassing...

    EXACTLY! Quoted for truth. I have never cared for the Pirates movies and this movie looks like Captain Jack traded in his ship for a horse. It looks beyond ridiculous but it clearly has an audience or Jonny Depp has the ability to make people watch crappy movies.

    I think Passion could be watchable. Maybe my expectations were so incredibly low after seeing Peter trash it in multiple posts that I was set up to think "it's not THAT bad."

    I saw someone mention Sharon Stone. Did anyone see her stint on Law and Order SVU? I don't know how long ago it was, I caught it on a repeat in syndication the other day. Her acting was a JOKE. Everything she did was over the top, like it belonged on a daytime soap opera. Horrible. I honestly have no idea how she managed to do that because the show already borders on being a daytime soap with the drama and over-acting. She really stunk that set up. I could almost sense the actors cringing during their scenes with her.

    Just came back from Man of Steel! To determine whether you'll like this movie, you only need to ask yourself one question: do you want to see Superman go all out for 30 minutes? If yes, then get thee to the theater stat! If not, might as well skip it. Or at least leave when the bad guys start pummeling Smallville, cause it's only gonna get more intense from there.

    Oh, and if you think Henry Cavill is HOT, do yourself a favor and see this movie anyway. At the end it was getting a bit too CGI Matrix Revolution-y for me, but then they'd show Henry's face and everything was aaaaalll right.

    I would have liked them to take away a few punches and added a few more moments to push the character moments harder. They were there, but needed a tad more nudging.

    Lois wasn't all useless, but she lost her motivation early on after she gets googly-eyed with Clark and became his trusty sidekick. I would have liked to see more hardened reporter that there was in the very beginning.

    Anyway...yes...Henry Cavill...

    "Man of Steel" seems to be raking in the $$$$; it remains to be seen if it will last.

    My husband begged to go see Man of Steel last night but I did not have it in me to fight those crowds for a movie I really am not all that excited for. I wish he was more independent like I am because we could choose different movies playing at the same time and about the same length. Superman has just never really appealed to me. I guess I will go with him and get this over with next weekend.

    It'll last. Movies -- especially superhero blockbusters -- don't start off with a bang like that and then just suddenly drop off.

    Trust me Henry Cavill is worth every penny! This movie does differ quite a bit from the original story and I am not sorry aout that at all.
