Jem and the Holograms

June 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

Up next in a line of 1980s toy franchise reboots, Hasbro is in production on a Jem and the Holograms live action movie.  I was never a fan of the Jem and the Holograms toys and cartoon, but my kid sister was; and being a fan of The Go-Gos, I found Jem a heckuva lot less annoying than Barbie.

Though Gen-X favorites Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald have joined the cast, this definitely looks like a project for a younger audience.  Fans of the original Jem must now be in their 30s, and few of them will want to check out a film featuring an emo-looking Jem directed by Jon Chu, the man behind Step Up 2: The Streets.

We’ll just have to wait and see if this new incarnation of Jem is truly, truly, truly outrageous.

Why do actors always buff-up for roles now?  Remember when they used to get fat for roles?

Unforgiven With Katana

February 14, 2014 § Leave a comment

Chanbara (samurai) movies remade as Westerns, Westerns remade as chanbara… To my memory it’s been a while, and this remake of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven is long overdue.

Damn, that looks awesome.

I Have to See Vampire Academy

February 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

I can’t help it.  I thought I was all vampired-out with the  Twilight and the Underworld and the Dario Argento’s Dracula in 3D, but apparently, I’m not.  It doesn’t hurt that Vampire Academy is directed by Mark Waters of House of Yes and Mean Girls; but Zoey Deutch, the human bodyguard, is the daughter of Howard Deutch, director of teen classics Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful, and Lea Thompson, from Red Dawn and Back to the Future trilogy; and that just makes me nostalgic for a time when movies like this one were made for me.

Cuban Fury Dance-Off

January 31, 2014 § Leave a comment

In a world where Chris O’Dowd and Nick Frost are rivals for Rashida Jones’ heart, Chris O’Dowd and Nick Frost can settle the matter with a weird salsa-dance-fight thing…

Alas, Cuban Fury has no U.S. theatrical release date.  This dance-duel with have to tide us over until the film hits DVD and streaming.

(I found this video on Bleeding Cool.)

And the 2014 Oscar Nominees Are…

…nothing I’ve actually seen.

That’s not entirely true.  I did see Gravity because, well, it had to be seen on in IMAX 3D, but everything else there, I’m just going to wait until it’s on DVD or streaming.  Which is not to say that I don’t think any of these film are worth seeing.  It’s just that all that great acting and great directing can be appreciated at home.

I don’t know why or how these trends come about, but it looks like people are paying more attention to the actor’s craft this year, i.e., nearly every nominated film focuses on performance over visual artistry.  The only real spectacle in the best picture nominees, Gravity, also got a best actress nomination for Sandra Bullock. Not an actor’s film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was passed over for the nominations, but it was by far the best film I saw in theaters in 2013.  (That it didn’t find a great marketing plan probably didn’t help either.)

You win Best Film in my daydreams.

My congratulations go to the actors, but I prefer those years when the industry pays attention to the films more than the people that make them.

See Variety for the full list.

Something to mix in with all those photos of babies that your friends post.

Let’s hope Darth Vader doesn’t add any selfies that show off any circuits.

MetaMorphosis #2

September 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

MetaMorphosis #2 came out this week!

I didn’t know that it was coming out this week, or I probably would’ve made more of an effort to promote it.  I guess ComiXology no longer tells Submit creators that their books are coming out, but, hey, they’ve got a lot of titles to keep track of.

I just handed in the latest draft of the screenplay adaptation, and my hands are sore from typing.  No more words!  Look at my pictures!  Tell you friends!

I’ve optioned this comic for a film adaptation, and I’m currently working on rewrites of the script.  Read my original story here!
