  • Coming Eventually...

    Because I often feel the need to bitch about movies long before they come near the theater...

    In DC-alum news, KH has reportedly signed on to play the love interest in the new Batman movie, where she will presumably be making out with Christian Bale. I may start to hate her as much as PBF does.

    The J is doing decidedly less high-profile films with Juliette Lewis, Harvey Keitel (and Claire Forlani ). The likelihood of nailing him one night after he finishes a dinner-theater production grows with each day. Hee.

    If only JJ had ended up winning the role of Batman instead of Christian Bale. PBF would really have something to freak about.

      Hee! I was thinking that too. It never would've happened, of course, but just the thought of them having to do PR together, acting all gushy and BFF again makes me giggle.

        *weeps for what might have been*
        Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

          It'll be out tomorrow, and i have no plans to ever see it, but I'd like to go on record now as saying that Mona Lisa Smile is going to be a giant, steaming, pile of crap.

            I really want to see that.

            Wait! Before you freak out I have something to say! Hee.

            There are so few coming of age stories for women that I welcome ANY of them with open arms. Of course, if the movie features a girl losing her virginity while something terrible happens at the same time? I will this film out of existence!

            I would, just once, like to see a story about a girl growing up that doesn't end with her virginity being lost to someone awful and/or someone having a near-fatal accident around the time of the deflowering.

            I swear, I can't think of a movie that presents a poignant coming of age story (about a girl and her virginity) that doesn't have the secret code: DON'T.PUT.OUT. flashing on the screen somewhere! GAH.

              I'll see it, but the reviews so far are 50/50. Most of the complaints surround them being one dimensional and very Dead Poets Sorority.

                Everyone else is in period dress and horrid accents (looking at YOU, Julia Stiles. What is that haughty shit in the previews?) except Julia Roberts! She looks and sounds like she just plopped right out of the present!

                And...while I have no idea about the actual plot (I am refraining from using visual quotation marks around that word, but I'm sure you can sense I'm being sarcastic), the title vexes me. Because if they are comparing Julia Roberts' giant horse-smile to the Mona Lisa's, that's just stupid and wrong.

                Yes, that's extremely nitpicky, and likely not what it means at all, but dammit, I would like to see some range out of Ms. Roberts for her damn paycheck. I'm sick of seeing her play her same role in every movie.

                That goes double for you, Ol' man Nicholson. Grumpy curmudgeon with young girlfriend, indeed.

                  Oh, I will be the first to admit that Julia is never playing anyone but Julia!

                  The Dead Poets Society comparisons are sort of shitty. It's sexism, I say! *plays "I Am Woman" on the kazoo* Dismissing a film because it's similar to another earlier film would pretty much discredit vast majority of movies. It's a weak criticism, IMO.

                  That said, the previews for Love Don't Cost A Thing CMSU. Hiphip Can't Buy Me Love! Hee.

                    Some of the film geeks in my cinema class were saying that MLS was supposed to take place at Bryn Mawr before we soundly rejected them. Anyone have any idea if that's valid at all? Cause that could motivate me to see it.

                      No, it's supposed to be Wellesley and it was actually filmed there. I caught a preview thinggy on Stars today. It looked pretty bad. I could just tell I would hate everyone in it and everything they say/do. Except Maggie's character. She seemed cool. But it pretty much was sold as the female dead poets. Julia teaches girls to be independent thinkers! Yay!
                      It's all about me and my precious.

                        Aww, I really want to see Mona Lisa Smile. I like (or at least tolerate in Julia Stiles' case) the younger women in the movie and the story seems cute enough. I will be the first to admit that my desire to see the movie is motivated by the Kirsten love. After Drop Dead Gorgeous and Bring It On I will go see pretty much any Kirsten Dunst movie. And I'm not ashamed of that.

                        I thought I wanted to see Cold Mountain, but after seeing the previews, I don't know if I can sit through 2+ hours of Nicole working that accent. It sounds B.A.D. and I even like her.

                        Also, Girl With a Pearl Earring is out now in limited release, but I can't wait to see it. I loved that book and I love the casting for the movie. I've been waiting for it to come out since I heard who was in it and I can't believe that it'll be anything but awesome. And I'm hoping that Scarlett will get an Oscar nomination for either this or LiT.

                          I know I want to see Mona Lisa Smile because Maggie's character sleeps with all the teachers. But, speaking of Julia Stiles' ridiculousness, I've always wondered about those period movies...Did people from the 50s really speak with a faux-British, black-and-white-movie-starlet accent?

                            I like Nicole, but she's channeling Jodie Foster's Nell in those CM previews.

                              I saw a preview last night for Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - a period piece with Jude Law, Gwynneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie in 1940's garb. Gwynneth looked oh so very out of place, but Angelina looked hot as always. If it wasn't for GP I would have been stoked, but her involvement makes me think it's going to be the kind of movie I hate.
