    So looking forward to The Man of Steel reboot
    Hmmm Zack Snyder normally does okay when he's adapting established source material and it does have Christopher Nolan lurking about in the background. But I have a hard time being interested in anything Superman. It's the character more than anything, he's just so overpowered that it detracts from any danger he's presented with or obstacle that he has to overcome.

    Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have agreed on making it more edg ey, a bit like The Dark Knight. Superman is supposed to struggle throughout the movie, that will make it more dramatic in my opinion. So he's not going to be totally invinsible

    The whole idea of Superman is that he has to be invincible, he has to be more than a human man in abilities, personality and will. If they try and make it like Batman it will be pretty terrible, Superman is meant to be a positive character, all primary colours and higher moral purpose.
    Superman films always bug me though as they are never consistent with his abilities, especially his strength.

    I don't think Nolan cares about what Superman HAS to be like, he's shown he can play around with comic book characters to fit good cinema. They will give Superman the right blend imo, and he can have super human abilities, moral purpose etc and STILL struggle. Its not like the two scenarios are independent.

    I know I've praised the scenes before but it has to be said since I've rewatched the film, the opening dairy farm scene and the bar scene in Inglorious Basterds are perfect in every sense. I can't think of another film which has had so much tension practically reverberate across so well than that film did in those two scenes.

    I hope Tarantino puts in a tense 15 minute poker scene in Django Unchained. All I ask for.

    EDIT: After which of course everybody starts shooting everybody else in true Tarantino style.

    That would depend entirely on whether he finds someone good to replace Sally Menke.

    He's chosen Fred Raskin, so far best known for editing three editions of the The Fast and the Furious series. :erm:

    Well an editor can only work with what he's got, after all. The more important thing is what kind of style he has with Tarantino and whether he's got enough confidence and experience to stand up to him.

    Watched Ghost World last night, thought it was a very good re-imagining of the comics. Buscemi is superb. :adore:
    I watched that film for the first time and enjoyed it. It was interesting how they adapted it from the comic. Seymour is only a minor character in the comic.

    According to Emma Watson's Twitter, the Perks of Being a Wallflower is finally going to be released in September.

    I'm not sure Avatar was overrated though, was it? It was hugely successful and popular, but not really overrated. Inception was 'overrated' and maybe a better example, but way better a film.

    I went to see avengers last night. My housemate wanted to see 3D and I went along with that, which was an error. It was only half full and and i'm pretty sure that the 2D was near sold out, so maybe it's on the wane, at last. The 3D was poor and I had to keep lifting the glasses to give myself an idea of the intended luminescence.

    The filmed really bored us both. Another cgi smashfest that will be instantly forgotton. No charm, few bits of truly excellent dialogue, a couple of good scenes, but just waaaaaaaaay tooooooooooo long. I mean, we just wanted it to end by about 45 minutes from the end. The number of people taking toilet breaks was ridiculous, and when you have a decent story, a gripping story and one you just don't want to miss even a second of, that doesn't happen. Very poor, very disappointing after all the amazing reviews.

    Came home, watched Die Hard. Flipping excellent.
    I didn't think Avatar was too good 8/10 and I only really think things got action packed towards the end and the plot was stupid of humans trying to steal aliens's planet.Why not let the aliens be vicious and a bit more CGI animated?-they didn't look that good for CGI or that alien because aliens shouldn't resemble humans in any way should they?

    Not too good. 8/10.

    Although I do like the word "aliens's". It's like I'm reading Gollum's thoughts.

    i'm not sure you'd attract hundreds of millions of pounds of sympathy ca$h if yer aliens looked like a gaseus cloud, or some bacteria.

    avatar was just a very, very rubbish film.

    This is probably my favourite Jackie Chan fight scene. :giggle:
