    JGL to play Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises. He fits the part, at least visually, but the character is inextricably linked to The Long Halloween/Dark Victory, so I do wonder where they're going with all this. :holmes:

    Yeah, he [Cruise] should really get back to making blockbuster films and not romantic comedies. Mission Impossible 4 ought to be his redemption call.
    He should get back to making films like Rain Man and Jerry Maguire.

    Dundonians are more incomprehensible than Glaswegians. Just sayin'...

    Plus they like to wave stuff at people.

    The amount of people you must've have blinded. The amount of plane crashes you have caused. The amount of fear you have struck into the hearts of an innocent city like Dundee.

    Everyone is fleeing to Abroath because of you.

    Privacy of my own home to be honest, and it was still branded as public indecency. Outrageous to be honest.
    Yeah, think of the shock when people in their homes saw you wiggling it and fearing for their lives.

    Agreed. Movies like that make me wonder: 'whatever happened to Tom Cruise?' In the same way daft people say things like 'whatever happened to Edward Norton?'

    Speaking of Norton, has anyone seen Leaves of Grass? It's really rather good.

    Edward Norton is oddly reminiscent of Christian Bale. He's a great actor coming from films like Fight Club and American History X, but been reading up on directors having trouble working with him - was that the reason he got taken off Avengers? I don't know much about it.

    Still think he could star in another good film, but he has been off the radar recently.
    Agreed. What a couple of people have said to me is ridiculous, however: that he got Oscar nominations for two of his early roles (Primal Fear and American History X) and hasn't since, so he's potential that failed. :dunce: By that logic, people like Gary Oldman and John Cazale are pretty much useless actors.

    Can't see that happening to be honest. Those seem like the films actors [like Cruise] make in their early careers.
    He made Jerry Maguire the same year as Mission: Impossible. And he still seems to want to be more than just an action star, otherwise he wouldn't make films like Valkyrie or turn down Salt.

    Guys, io9 is running March Movie Madness to find the 'greatest science fiction film of all time'.



    If you can look past the horrific idea of comparing two films against each other to find the 'greatest' of the bunch on the basis of votes, next voting is tomorrow.

    May be of particular interest to you.
    Ooooh.

    Hah, Avatar lost.

    Predator won vs Donnie Darko... I wouldn't have been able to decide anyway.

    Solaris and The Thing lost? Pft.

    edit: rooting for Blade Runner and Metropolis (from this round, although pretty much all the films are worth rooting for).

    Damn, The Matrix vs Brazil...

    So close between Akira and Moon. I'm not going to be able to vote in the later rounds...

    Hmmm, Ghostbusters beat A Clockwork Orange. I have a feeling that the winner of that whole competition will be decided by the second round match-up of Blade Runner versus Ghostbusters.

    Honestly? Pitching Stargate against Star Wars? That's like a narcoleptic hydrangea wrapped in a flannel fighting a zombie bear with titanium claws.

    Reading some of those match-ups is just making me wince. The Matrix vs Brazil? Wall-E vs Gattaca?

    However, Serenity vs Spider-Man is justice at work.

    "Show me the monayy" - epic film quote

    on an unrelated note, Sundays are dull... got essays due in soon :/ Might watch a film sometime today

    *Just saw that greatest sci-film of all time thing.... it's so subjective though, there are so many fanboys and uberfans of so many different Sci-films and series it's almost impossible to single out as 'The best', also because there are just so many good ones imo - Star Wars would be top of that list for me anyway

    Get pouring. We should tie it into something. Every time Arnold Schwarzenegger says a cheesy one liner = 1 shot. :holmes:
    Try a shot of beer every time someone swears in Pulp Fiction.

    And if you can manage that, next time try it with Reservoir Dogs. (:
