Is that they have discovered that people wont bet 10 bucks on an unknown horse.....not for blockbusters anyway. If one of the plots,cast,director,character(s)is not known ahead of time(b4 trailers),then it will be fail in their eyes and grant no budget. Look at this year's line up,....Batman,Hulk,Irondude,Indy,.....shit even Wall*E was a run of the mill love story with nothing new. Tested,tried and true is Hollywood mantra these days. BTW Beaks,....hope your pal in the pic over at Hunt's site gets better soon....:)

http://mikemcstay.blogspot.com/2008/07/movie-review.html I saw the film opening weekend here in Korea and it was so-so at best. I still have no idea what they were aiming for, but it did not work. I saw it one time and that is enough.

If only there was a cameo appearance by Obama, it would be the best thing ever!

...and I was the only one laughing! Everyone else weren't phased by his humor and they were all CHINESE! So I'm not too sure about 'western tastes' being so alien. Or maybe I'm just different.

the most entertaining Movie of 2008 so far. Too many cool, BADASS and hilarious moments to recollect, can't wait to see this in a cinema again. The film isn't perfect though, I found that some of the slower stuff between action scenes dragged a touch here and there.

The hype at Fantastic Fest was gigantic, and indeed most seemed to think it was one of the best films playing at the fest. I LOVE spaghetti westerns so I was very excited to see it. Now, it isn't a bad film. It is entertaining and action packed to the gills with John Woo meets Sergio Leone setpieces, but it just seemed familiar and not particularly memorable to me. My two Autin friends that saw it with me felt exactly the same way. Now, I certainly don't want to steer anybody away from seeing it, because most people seemed to have loved it, and maybe it just fell victim to it's own hype for us, but I was a little let down.

Just making a point about his range. But you're right: he's phenomenal in MEMORIES OF MURDER.

They just need to cut a trailer that's appealing to the barely literate. There are plenty of insane set-pieces to fill a minute and a half with. Mongol looked like a history lesson. This movie is probably more accessible and fun than Crouching Tiger, the trick is convincing America of that.
