Wanna Watch The Opening Credits For Guy Ritchie's ROCKNROLLA?
You might not know Danny Yount by name, but you've definitely seen (and hopefully appreciated) his work. Yount's the talented graphic designer behind the quirky-cool main titles for KISS KISS, BANG BANG (big assist there from John Ottman's score), the propulsive closing credits for IRON MAN, and the Emmy Award-winning opening to SIX FEET UNDER.
He's also become Joel Silver's go-to guy over the last few years, so it's hardly a surprise to learn that those nifty credits glimpsed in the ROCKNROLLA trailer belong to Yount. And now you can see the entire credit sequence in glorious Quicktime.
I do believe I'm getting excited about a new Guy Ritchie movie.
For the hell of it, here's the opening to KISS KISS, BANG BANG...
You're eying the DVD right now, aren't you? Here's SIX FEET UNDER...
And since the IRON MAN credits aren't available on YouTube, here's the gold standard...

Further evidence there are no quality standards left in the film industry.

...Guy Ritchie needs to stick with what he's goot at...Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels...Snatch...and now hopefully Rocknrolla. <P> The British Gangster Trilogy. Then he could make another British Gangster Trilogy. And another after that. <P> Revolver was not good. Appreciated the effort though.

as a filmmaker. He's stuck in this movie-making adolescence mode where his primary concern is "being cool." Much like I felt about David Fincher (who made the enjoyable "cool" flicks 'Se7en' and 'Fight Club') until he finally made a genuinely mature film with 'Zodiac.' Now 'Benjamin Button' can't get here soon enough. Ritchie needs his 'Zodiac.'

but when i see the previews for this i keep expecting to see The Dude show up. Then again, that would make almost any film better now wouldn't it?

Here's a review...saw the film at a screening last week. My quick Ritchie thoughts: Loved Lock Stock and Snatch...thought Revolver was pretty much one of the worst films I've ever seen.<p>Where does RockNRolla stand? In between. A lot of good stuff...some funny dialogue and character interaction (especially amongst Gerard Butler, Idris Elba (Stringer Bell on the Wire!) and the Handsome Bob character. (They had some great interaction and should be the stars of another movie...one with an actual plot.) But Tom Wilkinson was a one-note bad guy, the Russian villain was boring, and the plot...weak. It all centers around a deal between the Russian and Wilkinson to buy off people to develop land...but then Thandie Newton, the Russian's accountant, tells Butler and his "Wild Bunch" when the 7 million Euros are being withdrawn, they rob them, craziness ensues. Oh, and a painting the Russian gave Wilkie is stolen by the "RockNRolla", a druggie rock n roll star. <p>Basically after the set up it's just mix and match scenes until the end. The painting bounces around. A few double crosses and bits of violence. But nothing really escalates or moves. The movie starts slow...gets interesting for a while...then withers to a slow unremarkable finish. <p> OK...a couple spoilers here. There are several missteps toward the end as well. One: there are a couple of badass Russian hitmen, but after great introductions, they get an offscreen death. This I debated with my friend I saw the movie with...she said she didn't need to see them die. I disagree. If they're built up to be the ultimate badasses, the audience needs the catharsis of seeing them die. It's like Obiwan and Vader walking into the hallway and the blast doors come down. And when they open, Obi is dead. OK, you get what happened, but seeing it is half the fun. Also, the fate of another major character is COMPLETELY UNRESOLVED. As in, does he/she live or die? Who knows. Plus one of the key plot elements of the film, the painting, is wrapped up offscreen as well.<p> I can see why WB doesn't want to do a wide release. Not really that good. I'd put it down as a solid rental when it comes out on DVD, but really not worth much more than that. <p> Ritchie is talented, and there is a LOT good in the film in individual scenes in terms of direction, writing, and acting. But it doesn't add up to much. (Though it's a ton better than Revolver, which had absolutely NO story.) Ritchie really needs to find a plot and story worthy of his characters...cause this aint it.

Outstanding Main Title Design.

There's a guy with tight abs and no shirt on and it's fucking Fight Club all of a sudden? Give me a break.

if Ritchie wasn't married to Madge his film career would be over.
Aug. 25, 2008, 6:28 a.m. CST
Hilarious! Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is the movie i watch whenever i feel like shit. One of the funniest scripts ever. I think Rockenrolla will be hard pressed to be as good to be honest.
