/Film has the new trailer up for The Incredible Hulk, and I think I was totally in the second I saw the Hulk using demolished wreckage (cars, I think) as boxing gloves.
This one just moved up a notch on my anticipated list….Hulk smash!!!
Go here to choose what version to watch.
Looks like the perfect summer blockbuster event! Can this week get any better than it already has been?
I was lucky enough to find a few of the blogs I read posting bootlegged versions of the latest Dark Knight trailer that’s due out soon (apparently next week).
I think Heath Ledger’s final perfomance will garner a lot of praise from fanboys and general moviegoers as well, because his incarnation of the Joker appears to be spot on, and easily the best that will ever be done.
It is going to be interesting to see how they deal with it if they have to bring the Joker back, because it really seems like his performance is going to overshadow anyone who tries to take over.
I’m really looking forward to this one now!
Go here to watch it before it gets taken down!
Normally I don’t watch or post these things anymore, just to avoid spoilery stuff.
This new TV spot for quite possibly one of my most anticipated movies ever, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is just too awesome to pass up.
Take a look about halfway through when Harrison Ford is looking off toward somone offscreen….Looks pretty badass if you ask me!
You know, I’ve been expecting all along that Natalie would have some screen time in an episode, considering she’s hung around this long.
I just didn’t quite expect her to be as cocky and arrogant as she came off in tonight’s episode. She literally owned the episode…I think about 75% of those talking heads were hers, and what was with the expanded lead-in to tribal council with her STILL talking?!
She needs to go….with Cirie…..
The thing I don’t understand is why Amanda and James were all mopey, just hoping that Jason did what he ended up doing….If they had spoken with Jason, told him that Natalie was going to stab him in the back, and then talked to Erik, who is on the outs since it was Girls vs. Guys, that would have given them the numbers to flip it right back at Parvati, Natalie and Alexis.
Seriously…That makes sense, doesn’t it?
I thought these players were supposed to be All-Stars….
I’m glad that NBC and the people behind casting for the inevitable Celebrity Apprentice 2 had the smarts to NOT put O.J. Simpson on the show.
After all the problems he’s had with the law in the past few years, he doesn’t deserve to be featured on a national television program. It’d be like rewarding him for being the way he is, and I think there’s one thing that’s pretty obvious…he’s no role model.
Even so, like The Apprentice before it, I don’t think there’s any way that follow up seasons of the show will ever top the 1st season. Piers Morgan was an absolute perfect choice to make that show entertaining, and there’s just no topping that.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Survivor: Africa from way back in the day….It had easily some of the best casting for any season that’s ever been produced, and despite a lot of people complaining it was not the best of seasons, I’ve always thought it shined as one of the best.
The location is known as Gabon, and is in Western Africa….They had me at Africa….though, I am curious to see if it’s as desolate as Kenya was, or if it might be in a more wooded area.
Either way…I’m there. Bring on this season’s finale so we can see what the logo looks like. If it’s good enough, I might just have to get some new Survivor-themed gear.
Via Reality Blurred
The Bourne Identity– I was one of those people who never saw this while it was in theatres during its initial run. I’ve regretted it ever since, as its easily one of the more thrilling action movie startups in awhile. It has what’s often considered one of the finest car chases ever put on film.
The Bourne Supremacy– While I had negative feelings toward this one until I saw it NOT in a theater full of rowdy teens, it has grown on me. Paul Greengrass took over for Doug Liman, and this is where Bourne picked up it’s “shaky cam” tendencies. If you set those aside, this is actually a very entertaining flick…which is ultimately paid off by The Bourne Ultimatum.
Also worth mentioning: The Minority Report
Sahara– This one was a major dud when it was released, but it’s got some awesome beauty shots of the desert set up by director Breck Eisner. There’s some decent action, and Matthew McConaughey and Steve Zahn have some very good chemistry as best friends…Highly underrated if you ask me…Rainn Wilson, AKA Dwight Schrute from The Office has a minor role.
Top Gun– Old school Bruckheimer…Tom Cruise as Maverick, Anthony Edwards, in pretty much his only movie role ever, plays Goose…If you’re into the military you’ll probably like it. Lots of big names early on in their career show up too.
Jumanji (Special Edition I think…)- Robin Williams leads the cast in bringing the picture book we all know about to life. It’s actually not too bad…despite some iffy special effects (they’re good for the year this one came out, but imagine if it came out now….), it’s entertaining enough for kids and also probably of interest to those of us who read the book in grade school.
Stranger Than Fiction– Will Ferrell in a serious role….I went into this with the lowest of expectations, but was floored by how much I ended up enjoying it. Maggie Gyllenhaal is a nice contrast to Ferrell, and there’s a lot of quirky, funny moments. It’s gloomy at points, but it’s made up for by the performance of Ferrell. Seriously…the guy can pull of the serious stuff too.
