    After seeing 'Catching fire' I am willing to see any movie -even comedy- starring Elizabeth Banks.

    Noah was actually the movie I screen-tested back in October. I am itching to say so many things but I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to (but then where is everyone getting their information?)

    Liam Neeson's career seems to be going Non-Stop as his movie debuts at #1 this week. (So sorry about that one!! ) It made 30 million over the weekend on a budget of 50 million. It averaged almost $10,000 per theatre, the highest average for all of the movies in the top twenty. The Son of God did not have the power of Liam Neeson as it took the runner-up spot, with 26 million and just over $8,000 per theatre. A couple of interesting things about this movie. It's basically just edited bits of a TV show, "The Bible" which Survivor creator Mark Burnett made. So pretty much all of this movie has already aired on television. Wikipedia lists the budget at 22 million. I would have thought the budget would have been miniscule as "The Bible" budget would have covered most of the costs. All they had to do was re-edit the TV show into this movie, which should have been basically the cost of paying the editors. Actually, I just checked the Wikipedia page for The Bible and it also lists that budget as around the 22 million mark. I hope that amount covers both productions and that they didn't pay editors 22 million to cut "The Bible" down into "Son of God"!

    The Lego movie drops from #1 to #3, but still took in 21 million, bringing it's domestic haul to over the 200 million mark. Just imagine the profits if they create a toy spin-off of this movie! Robocop passes the 50 million box office mark, but that's not much of a consolation for a movie with a 130 million budget. Luckily, Robocop has made 100 million internationally, so it might make it into the black with time.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    One movie that's been advertised a lot that isn't on the lists PeterG made is Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal and Isabella Rossellini. It looks good, but quite dark. Hopefully not TOO dark, though.

    In addition to the big popcorn movies, these ones look good. But they look almost like they should have been released in November or December for Oscar consideration. I guess they serve a counter-programming purpose, for those who want something other than superheroes or horror:

    The Adele Dazeem Name Generator

    When John Travolta called Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars, he created a new standard for superstardom: You're no one until you've had your name mangled by a confused, squinting John Travolta. What's your Travoltified name? Find out with our handy widget!

    Theo James looks rather porny in the trailer, so at least there is eye candy.

    I agree this spring looks rather lackluster for movies I want to see. I have no idea what they've done with the story, but "Noah" looks beyond awful to me.

    I'll wait for the reviews on "Godzilla." The last remake was so bad it was painful. I liked the first "Spiderman" movies, not sure why they decided to reboot by going back to the origins/new cast, etc. but this new movie looks like its drowning in CGI. Same with "Maleficent," if they can pull an interesting story out so it isn't just all special effects, I may have some interest in that.

    "Grand Budapest Hotel" is the only movie I'm really looking forward to seeing. Great cast, and I hope it does have some slapstick. (Sorry Vash!) I think Wes Anderson can be counted on to have physical humor that is more in style with a Blake Edwards comedy than one starring Jim Carrey.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    A question about Thor: The Dark World. I'm in the library queue for this one, but I didn't see the 2011 Thor movie. Is there anything in that one I need to know before watching the 2nd one? (I did see The Avengers.)

    TIA

    Not really. It is a stand alone movie but it might help you understand it a bit more.

    Here's the trailers for the movies coming out this weekend. Other than the ones we've already covered (in bold), only The Face of Love and In Fear interest me. The Face of Love looks really good, looks like it has a very smart script. The trailer for In Fear is the second that I watched, the first was so bland with most of the scenes being in pitch dark. For some reason I decided to watch a second trailer, probably because I'm in the mood for a good horror/thriller movie these days. I'm glad I was persistent. Haunt looks like it might be good, but I'm decided on that one for now. The last two don't look very good...A Farewell To Fools looks especially AWFUL!!!

    Oscar Nominee Barkhad Abdi Reportedly 'Broke'
    http://www.aol.com/article/2014/03/0...zergnet_147904

    "Captain Phillips" star Barkhad Abdi was on top of the world Sunday at the Oscars. Working the red carpet, doing interviews and mingling with Hollywood's biggest stars.

    But now that the lights have faded, it's back to reality for the Hollywood newcomer who is reportedly broke. Abdi earned $65,000 for his role in Captain Phillips but he was given that money two years ago and has since spent it all.

    Aren't they too old to play those roles? IMO they should go with young actors who can sing. I can't think of any right now, though.

    I don't know about a new West Side Story working, but they are remaking Annie, so we'll see how that goes. Perhaps they'll pick Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber and use a ton of autotune.

    I didn't think it would be possible to make a version of "Annie" that was worse than the original, but based on that trailer....

    ITA on the and based on that I sure as heck won't be seeing this one ... but I'm also 100% sure that there will be a substantial audience for this. The audience that doesn't know the difference between pop singing and real singing (and if they do know the difference, prefers the former).

    I'm not in the slightest bit surprised at the apparent tone of this movie. Movie musicals have been going in this direction for a while now ...

    (gack! I sound like such an old fuddy-duddy!)

    Extremely early to be talking about the Academy Awards 2015, but the BBC website had a piece about this film, and said that Ralph Fiennes is just brilliant and they were tipping him to win next year. I can't believe he has no Oscar to his name. How he missed out for Schindler's List I'll never know.

    Ralph Fiennes (Schindler's List), Tommy Lee Jones (The Fugitive), Leonardo DiCaprio (What's Eating Gilbert Grape?), Pete Postlethwaite (In the Name of the Father), and John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire): 1993 was a pretty good year for the Best Supporting Actor category. I suppose that Jones was due for a career achievement Oscar, though I'd rather have seen Fiennes, DiCaprio, or Postlethwaite win it.

    I saw Pompeii on Sunday with some friends and found it to be quite entertaining. It made me think of The Towering Inferno and Earthquake from the 70's when I was still a young whippersnapper. Except nowadays the movies have much, much better special effects. It's funny to hear criticisms about movies like this about how factual information is incorrect or that the script and acting are not Oscar calibre. It's a popcorn movie, plain and simple. Just silly fun to escape one's everyday life for a little while. So I found it to be a complete success. Tons of fun with nods to pretty much every kind of disaster movie made. When we left the theatre, I said to one of my friends, "it had everything but the kitchen sink". But if I had watched it on DVD, I wouldn't be surprised in the tsunami scene if one shot actually DID have a kitchen sink hurtling through the cascade of water!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
