Could that be because no-one mentioned it before? If you knew about this, why didn't you mention it? If you didn't know about this, shouldn't you have said "for *me*, this just popped up on my radar"...?
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:03 a.m. CST
Too much Dr. Strangelove on the mind? Movie looks creepy - what's it about? Will David Bowie show up in tight pants? Or at least Jennifer Connelly?
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:15 a.m. CST
I'm too lazy to search...when's this one coming out? Any word of a trailer? You can be too lazy to answer...it's OK.
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:17 a.m. CST
NetSlut -- Actually if you do a search on the site - you will find about a dozen stories about the film. This is the 3rd film in Guillermo Del Toro's Children's Trilogy of Grim Fairy Tales. Not GRIMM's, but Guillermo's. The first was CRONOS, the second was THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE... this is the third. I've posted the one sheet and a story synopsis after I'd read the script. However, due to shooting in Spain it has been a long time with out any real information to give, and I figured it went off many of y'all's radar. THEBIGE - 1) Because saying I had to take a piss was more crude. 2) Strangelove is always on the mind, I'm a film geek. 3) no. 4) I wish.
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:18 a.m. CST
Doesn't have one yet. I don't know if it has a domestic releasing partner as of yet.
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:22 a.m. CST
So, will Guillermo do Hellboy 2 after this?
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:23 a.m. CST
And if so, will both characters be voiced by David Hyde Pierce?
Nov. 12, 2005, 7:23 a.m. CST
Looks like "Narnia"...but great!

fuck jazz. it's just noise.
Nov. 12, 2005, 9:01 a.m. CST
Not that I'll see it, because for 11.75 a ticket, I see about 2 movies a year in theaters.
Nov. 12, 2005, 9:09 a.m. CST
This could be cool.
Nov. 12, 2005, 9:11 a.m. CST
They do it for you to ask why - and maybe you are too stupid a dumbfuck to understand jazz music, so that FOR YOU, it may represent just noise - but as always, you are not alone dude - after all dumbfucks rule your beloved country. but see i.e. clint eastwood - his love for jazz gave us a fantastic movie ("Bird") about it. as for the pics - nice, nice, nice - i'm very into this sort of things, and i hope guillermo keeps up his great work!

Those pics were very cool. And for the record, "Hellboy" would make a great series.

Remember that Kids In the Hall bit --- "I don't like jazz." "What don't you like about it?" "The sound the instruments make when they play it."
Nov. 12, 2005, 12:06 p.m. CST
Disturbing. Del Toro is a master at his craft, I've liked all his work. I saw Devil's Backbone about a week ago, again, and it still haunts. Can something be beautifully disturbing?

The guy with the hands is reminiscent of the helping hands from Labyrinth and the creature with the horns looks like Darkness from Legend, but blue.
Nov. 13, 2005, 12:43 a.m. CST
I loved the Devils Backbone. I thought Cronos was...a good start.
Nov. 13, 2005, 1:21 a.m. CST
Hellboy bored me to tears...this looks like no exception.
Nov. 13, 2005, 3:01 a.m. CST
A cartoon will be done anyway though. Love the look of this movie Pan's Labyrinth. Combined with Neil Gaiman's Mirrormask you have an LSD double feature on your hands (or eyes considering that first picture....YESHH.
Nov. 13, 2005, 3:04 a.m. CST
Is it true that Guillermo Del Toro wants to do a movie based on the book "In the Mountains of Madness" (don't know much about it just love the title) and would it be one of those pie-in-the-sky passion projects he'll have to wait to do?
Nov. 13, 2005, 4:36 a.m. CST
You have to be kidding ... Anyway, here's the novel the movie would be based on: http://www.dagonbytes.com/thelibrary/lovecraft/mountainsofmaddness.htm ------ It was once set up at Dreamworks with de Luca producing and if they had greenlit it, it'd have gotten made instead of PAN'S LABYRINTH. However, Dreamworks chickened out (which was totally expected) and after they suggested he add a love story and more action set pieces del Toro told them shove it and left. It's not going to get made for another 10 years at least but as HELLBOY showed one should never say never. We definitely need a big budgeted Lovecraft movie that gets it right sometime. Not that I don't love Stuart Gordon's work but I want me some epic Old Ones horror and 8 foot tall albino penguines!

$12 to get into a movie is pretty good bearing in mind the average cost of a big hollywood movie is around $60 million. Seems like a good deal to me.

I didnt' get AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS when I read it. It had a great set up, beautifully eerie and atmospheric. Then it became something akin to a geology lesson. Endless passages about Continental Drift and rocks. Then giant penguins show up. It seemed to be a lot of mystery but no pay off. I couldn't see a movie in it unless you just took the premise and created a whole unique set of conflicts. It would've been interesting to see what Del Toro would have done, but I didn't see it upon reading the book.
Nov. 13, 2005, 1:37 p.m. CST
The more movies I see by this guy, the more of a fan I am becoming. His artistic palate and treatment of the material is always mature, thoughtful and above the bar. And his monsters-he uses CGI sparingly, and an actor in makeup, or a puppet, or animatronic ALWAYS looks 100% more realistic than any CGI ever done. Thats the only reason I am slightly worried about Jacksons KONG. in about 1/2 of the shots-the jungle one, Kong looks like a CGI image. However-every shot of KONG I have seen on the Empire State Bld. looks 100% realistic and better than and any other medium. Finger crossed...

Dig the pics a lot. Spirit finger mcgee looks like fun. Now if they can continue the trend of getting fantasy movies right then maybe The Dark Crystal 2 won't suck? -sigh- Somehow I know it's going to be bad. Oh, and while I like jazz quite a bit the Kids in the Hall reference makes me smile to no end. Thank you for improving what otherwise is a rainy and typical sunday here in louisiana.

Looks cool (and very Gerry Anderson/Space Precinct-like, which can be a good thing depending upon how one thinks about that). As far as I am concerned, GdT can do no wrong and his worse is better than some directors' best (listening, David Goyer?) He's not only a great director (which is not the same as saying that everything he does is great), but he's a craftsman of cinema.

I will say that Hellboy looked nice and the creature work was excellent. I enjoyed the comics but the movie just felt flat to me. Del Torro has a tallent for mosters.

Looks great. If only Guillermo, Barker, Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman would get together and come up with something ...

Er, would anyone like to explain how exactly it looks like Labyrinth and Legend??!! I don't see any similarities at all. The only comparison is Clive Barker, especially his Nightbreed. The tree's kinda like Poltergeist/Sleepy Hollow, but hell, how else do you make a tree creepy? I really don't get why some people say it looks like Labyrinth though ...
Nov. 14, 2005, 9:10 a.m. CST
does anyone know what the film is about? harry? help me out man...
Nov. 14, 2005, 9:16 a.m. CST
"Oooh, it looks like Nightbreed." I'll tell you what it looks like - FUCKED UP, that's what it looks like. Did you see that? His eyes are in his effin HANDS. That's cool, right there.

Urine therapy is a very ancient and drugless form of intrinsic medicine. Its application is so simple that it can be done anywhere and at any time. Urine has been used as a healing agent in practically all civilizations and cultures. It seemingly dies, only to reappear again time after time. Often it is called the "Water of Life", "Living Water Within" or simply "Life Elixir". In many religions it is believed that this water will enhance one's spiritual growth and even give one everlasting life.The kidney's major function is to balance all the elements in your blood. It takes all excess amounts of vital substances out of the blood as well as excess amounts of water. The water and these vital substances then form urine. Urine is filled with vital elements. It is not waste. The liver detoxifies the blood and excretes the toxins into the colon. The kidneys balance the blood's vital substances and water level. In short, urine is simply filtered blood. It contains in its fresh condition, only those chemicals and compounds of the blood in circulation in each of us. The morning urine is the richest and best urine to drink. This is partially due to the greater level of hormonal secretion that takes place in the late night hours when the body is totally relaxed and repairing itself. Fortunately, Urine-Therapy is very simple in its application. Urine-Therapy consists of two basic parts: the internal application and the external application. Both parts complement each other and are necessary for best results. There are many different ways of using urine. After the initial experience one will find his or her own personal way of application. Because urine is produced to one's needs, only your urine should be taken for internal use.

why is it then that the body throws that precious fluid away by shootin it out of the peter? or was this intended as some kind of garden hose for oneself?
Nov. 15, 2005, 12:50 p.m. CST
im sure you could find precious fluids running out in similar ways from trees or other plants...if interested you should look into it,it really works.its the best thing for stopping your hair from falling off your head,for instance.but then the best to use it is to let it stand in the sun and rot for several days...the smell is something else but the effect is magical.
