    What a piece of trash. Van Holmesing!

    by JackPumpkinhead

    He fights the evil flying moriarties with his sword cane and kung-fu moves! Script by Guy Ritchie and Grandmadonna, based on Grandmadonna's beloved mystic book of Kabblablablah.

    Sunglasses? Hope he is somokin tobacco...

    Anyone else thinks he looks like the Invisible Man from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?

    HOWARD STERN IS SHERLOCK HOLMES

    by Mullah Omar

    That also kind of reminds me of Van Helsing. <br> <br> By the way, how common were dark sunglasses in Victorian England?

  • March 30, 2009, 12:26 p.m. CST

    It is exactly like Van Helsing!

    I knew it looked familiar!

    Not the Stereotype

    by Rathbone

    I really like that this production is trying to go beyond the accepted Hollywood image of Holmes. He's got the pipe, but it's not a calabash. And there's no deerstalker. But RDJ still projects a Sherlockian quality. I'm very encouraged!

  • March 30, 2009, 12:26 p.m. CST

    Fark Man

    by Steve Young

    I completely agree. I don't mind Ritchie so much nowadays, but he has a certain shtick he does well, and anything NOT in that vein he does not-so-well. On the plus side, if he IS successful, I'll be more likely to be pleasantly surprised.

    Terrible font choice

    by jimmy_009

    Looks like it came out of one of those label makers. Are they paying graphic designers anymore, or is this all just done by someone's son that "knows photoshop real good".

    by DennisMM

    People with sensitive eyes sometimes wore tinted or smoked glass spectacles, but they weren't common. And they are out-of-character for Holmes. But this is a reimagining, right? Let's get all "From Hell" on Holmes!

    According to wikipedia (I know, I know) they were becoming widespread by the 1900s, which definitely overlaps with Holmes' era.

    Tobacco most likely

    by Dingbatty

    A sophisticated Victorian drug addict would be drinking laudanum, though those who had travelled in Asia might've tried smoking hashish or opium. Though, in the books, Holmes did cocaine and morphine, legal and easily available at the time.

  • March 30, 2009, 12:36 p.m. CST

    FROM HOLMES

    by Mullah Omar

    Thanks DennisMM. <br> <br> Yeah, I think I have just ODed on dark Victorian sunglasses from DRACULA, VAN HELSING, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, etc. From all the movies you'd think Ray Ban was a medieval monk who designed the eyewear we see today.

    Not sunglasses -- they are tinted spectacles.

    by Dingbatty

    They didn't have polarized lenses. Certain colors were believed to correct particular vision problems or light sensitivity. These had been around since the mid 1700's, though utilizing colored lenses for various purposes goes back much further.

    Between this and the new Star Trek poster...

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    ...I weep for the current state of movie poster art. Obviously they're trying to sell Sherlock as some hip, cool crime fighter that looks like Tony Stark as opposed to the true character.

    Sherlock coolness

    by thot

    Never thought I'd see Sherlock Holmes looking so hip. I'm very interested in seeing Downey's take on the super-sleuth. I've always been a Holmes fan and am glad to see his return. Looking forward to Decembe!

  • March 30, 2009, 12:54 p.m. CST

    what a shame Jude Law is in it

    by mrbong

    Jude Law is a complete waste of space. he has an even gayer voice than Pierce Brosnan and can act about as well as my left arse cheek. this could have been a good concept for a film, ruined by one very bad casting decision.

  • March 30, 2009, 12:56 p.m. CST

    Looks more like Superfly

    by picardsucks

    Can see the meeting with some extremely gay producers and production designers now. Ohhhhh let's update this make it more now, ohhhhhh Let's dress him up like Prince!!

    by ltgalloway

    This is the first thing I've seen thats making me really hesitant about seeing this. I was excited to see Robert Downey and Jude Law in this, but now it looks like its Wild Wild West or something. Hoping something else will come along and put me to ease, and soon.

    Were it not for Drew's interviews...

    by TheMarineBiologist

    Sherlock Holmes: TNG was ok,

    by Jodet

    But Sherlock Holmes DS9 sucked and SHerlock Holmes Voyager sucked. Don't you see? They need to reinvent the franchise for modern movie-goers. Oh wait, wrong franchise. I don't know what the hell they're doing here.

  • March 30, 2009, 2:31 p.m. CST

    Revisionism for revisionism's sake?

    by Vlad the Inhaler

    I wasn't expecting a deerstalker cap and Inverness coat(Holmes wouldn't wear such outdoorsy kit in the city,) but this is a little too far in the opposite direction. Unless he's in some sort of disguise -- and a series of teaser posters showing RDJ in various Holmesian "disguises" might be cool -- this is nobody's idea of Sherlock Holmes. A frock suit, overcoat, and top hat would have been just fine, together with a clean-shaven chin. At this point, the only hope I have for this previously much-anticipated project stems directly from Moriarty's interviews.

  • March 30, 2009, 2:44 p.m. CST

  • March 30, 2009, 2:48 p.m. CST

    by subtlety

    Why the hell would they make him look like this or think we would think it cool? If they're going to give him this extreme a makeover, they better explain it (ie, disguise) or just forget about the original character and do their own thing.

  • March 30, 2009, 2:53 p.m. CST

    The only word to describe Sherlock Holmes as (as others have quite rightly pointed out) a frikkin pimp! Now all I need to hear is some publicity hack describe the film as 'Edgier' to know it will be an abomination.

    Since the look of the Jeremy Brett version

    by Dingbatty

    is considered definitive, it makes sense to have him look unique. And, the aquiline nose described in the book probably would've looked fake as a prosthetic. No sense casting based on looks.

    I'm looking forward to this.

    by rbatty024

    RDJ can make any role fun. He's incredibly charismatic and I'm all for a reimagining of older material.

  • March 30, 2009, 5:16 p.m. CST

    Nope. Ain't buying it...

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    RDJ may turn in an Oscar-award winning performance, but this guy looks nothing like Sherlock Holmes. Imagine if they made Iron Man look like the Tin Man, but had the same quality performances... it's the same thing. If he doesn't LOOK like the character in any way, you're losing half of your audience.<p>I'm just not buying into this whole "Victorian hipster" thing they're going for and it certainly doesn't make me believe this is the Sherlock Holmes of print and screen we've all come to know and love. So far, this is completely SHINO and far too close to Van Helsing in look for my comfort. :(

    Sunglasses

    by Horned One

    Sunglasses were first invented in China around the 15th century, and were made of polished gem stones. In the 18th century, westerners began tinting lenses. So, it's quite possible for Holmes to have sunglasses.

  • March 30, 2009, 7:24 p.m. CST

    Yeah, i have the same misgivings about

    by southafricanguy

    this take on Holmes. I dont trust Ritchie at all (Revolver, Swept Away), and the script is quite generic. I love RDJ though and i think he's a ballsy choice. But others I really hate Jude Law, the other British Keanu Reeves. Geez..why did nt they just cast Orlando Bloom if they wanted a plank of wood as Holme's partner?

    My family bites, that's why I usually watch a movie with my girl. Aviator, AVP: Requiem. Last year while I was waiting for Requiem I snuck into I robot real quick to see The Dark Knight trailer; I had already seen the 6 minute IMAX intro. Now this year I get to see the all around best young actress today (looks, beauty, intelligence, talent, and box-office appeal) Rachel McAdams. I hope there's a solo poster with her and an article too. I've never seen her look hotter like I have on the State of Play poster; and all they have of her is her pretty head.

    by southafricanguy

    there is a 70s pimp vibe to it lol. I think its a good idea to do Holmes in a completely different way. THE old image of the character isnt too hot with kids or young adults for the most part, so I understand an attempt to make this a Holmes for a new generation.

    I hope you are right about the chemistry, though i think it will come mostly from RDJ, Law is a lot like Bloom for me. And he's the kiss of death to movies looking to make bank (sky captain, cold mountain etc...). Also i really dont trust ritchie with this. Personally I wish Ridly Scott was doing this. Who do you guys think would be a better choice director for Holmes, or a better Watson?

    to you my friend, but if you read the script, thats exact;y what they have done. Actionize Holmes while dumbung down the mystery/case he has to solve so that you can see it coming a mile off. You are actually ahead of Holmes in figuring out the case, and the villains plot (becos its so fucking cliche) throughout the script....

    WTF?!

    by hoodlumXD

    I thought WB hated smoking and didn't want any of that in the movie so why is it "ok" for the poster to show Holmes smoking a pipe? I would LOVE it if they changed their minds, but I highly doubt that they actually included his smoking habits in the movie. So what's up with this??

    HOODLUM...i agree with you about RDJ dude

    by southafricanguy

    he is the thing that makes me most intetested in this movie. Jude law is a wooden plank, Guy ritchie may or may not rise to the challenge of this, he does nt seem to be able to do anything other than quirky,tarantino style crime movies. Ok so you read the script dude, just how bad is the villain? Completely one dimensional, basically a saterday morning cartoon. Though the idea of him basically being alaister crowly is cool, just too bad bad they give him no character or motivation. And what did you think of his plan? I thought it was literally the same damn thing we saw in Shanghai Knights..

    That upon looking at this teaser poster I know EVERYTHING about this production which won't be hitting theatres until Xmas '09. <p> My brilliance and extreme knowledgetude about films due largly in part to my devotion to cartoons has enabled my far seeing omniscience and authority to proclaim "laaaaaame" on this movie. In fact I already have torrented the memory of watching the movie onto my cranial flash drive for rewatching at my displeasure. So my review: Movie suuuuuucks!

    (Great name btw)...I dont claim to know every

    by southafricanguy

    thing about this movie dude, but when you read the script of a movie (you know..possibly the most important thing) and you have seen the directors previous work. You can get a fair idea of what something may be in terms of tone, asthetics etc...this movie has also been very open about its production with many set visits, interviews etc...Does that mean the movie will be bad? of course not, but ritchie does nt have a great track record, and for many his tarantino type style dies nt fit with Holmes. Also, have you seen Jude Law in movies before? The guy is almost always the kiss of death and he is never the reason a movie is good. But I still think that with RDJ, the attempt to do Holme sreally different, and the possibility that Ritchie may just suprise us all, that this movie could be good. Its just that with all the available info (which is actually quite a lot for a movie this far out)im on the fence with this movie.

    I'm not very familiar with Jude Law's movies. The only one that I can think of that I've seen is Gattaca and it was a solid movie and he played his part well, but other than that, I don't really have much of an opinion on his acting. I'm somewhat on the fence with this Sherlock movie, but I still have a bad feeling about this one. I know that the script probably changed A LOT so hopefully they made the plot more challenging and entertaining. I'm a big fan of RDJ's acting so I have high hopes for his portrayal of Holmes. I know he really respects the source material so I predict that he will do it justice...but I'm still skeptical about the movie in general.

    an acting heavyweight? Ala pacino, de nero, Bale, Norton etc...Oh well to each their own I guess. Im sorry but Law is no acting heavyweight. He seems to be only good at playing smarmy cunts. In that role he excels. He was good in Gattaca, road to perdition and AI, but neither of those movies depended on him. Where a movie has depended on him ala cold mountain, sky captain etc.. he has had all the charisma of a deflating balloon. He seems to only work as a character actor, in roles where the whole movie does not hinge on his charisma or acting ability. So maybe he will be fine as Watson then since Holmes is always the focus anyway.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Even without the whiskey, 6 films in a row is much more than I can handle.<p>Add whiskey into the equation and I would mostly likely be in a very sorry state by Rocky III.<p>It would make a decent drinking game, though - take a drink every time Rocky hits the canvas.

  • March 31, 2009, 8:24 a.m. CST

    And in both of them - Evil-Dead-A-Thon and Mad-Max-A-Thon - I found myself getting pretty fidgety and bored during the third film. I was just kind of tired of sitting there watching the same characters and wanted to piss off and do something else.<p>So, you will have my respect if you can do all 6 (or even 5) in one go.

    by keltic1701

    Not to say that Rathbone was a great Holmes in his early work, but when the studios took him out of the Victorian period and put him in WW II England to fight Nazis and their spies, he lost a major amount of credibility IMO. I know it was done to help boost the moral of the English people in their dire times but still... Brett and the people at Granada kept and portrayed the full flavor and essence of the Holmes character and Conan Doyle's stories. To a new generation of Holmes fans, Jeremy Brett is and always will be Sherlock Holmes.

All casaes where he was a supporting actor.

    I told you that second issue gets a lot better. That last page was hilariously brutal.<p>Color Me Kubrick was actually much better than I thought it would be. I have a lot more respect for Malkovich for actually acting now than I do most all other actors working today. He's nuts in that movie. I'm a little turned off by the Great Buck Howard, just because it has Tom Hanks son or something (I think) but I will probably see it if it ever winds up in front of me.<p>Did you read the latest Daredevil yet? Bru's always been writing that book pretty well, but I think he finally has hit his stride with this one.<p>I just picked up a bunch of issues I had on hold today. Cap, Secret Warriors, Agents of Atlas, Herc, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a really shitty latest issue of Fantastic Four. I am debating whether or not to drop that book. I sort of want to see where the next arc goes, but at the same time, I'm kind of thinking, "Shit this is not worth three bucks." Can you tell yet why I'm so poor at the end of every month?<p>And if you're not reading Iron Fist, shame on you. I have yet to read a bad issue of that book, which is miraculous considering Bru dropped out, and the latest issue wasn't even part of the actual storyline. It's just top notch every month.

    I heard that it was a bad issue. I myself have put that comic on hold, I am still buying them. Just because I missed issue #558 SOOO i'm a little behind. I did however put issue #161 as my #10 comic of last year based on the Variant cover only. I should just say fuck it and read on, but I heard that issue 558 was the best. Secret Warriors I can't wait to read I got it, I am a huge Hickman fan. Yes I picked up the last 2 Daredevil, haven't read them though. Haven't been reading Iron Fist either, I was already going and I know its good I am going to pick up the trades. <P> Have you picked up Air? Like the first trade just came out and its only $9 and I think its the first 5 issues, and the last one was only $1. I think you would like, its like Bango Tango just not as violent more fantasy. Though I haven't read the last two issues because the last issue ended with something pretty lame, if you read it you'll see. I need to check out and see if that lame ending was just my dislike of what I thought was about to happen or what. Seriously check it out.

    I plan to check out Air

    by kungfuhustler84

    I got the first Marvel Zombies series on harback trade, and also got a book with all the Zombie covers that artist ever made. If you really like the covers, it's worth hunting down. It's like the coolest coffee table book I own.<p>The last TWO issues of Daredevil. Those would be great back to back. Kingpin is some kind of muse for Brubaker, I swear.<p>I just finished the second issue of Secret Warriors. It's great. Agents of Atlas is cool too, but has more of a retro feel to it, which I actually kinda dig more.<p>It says on the issue, I think Howard the Duck came out in 76? Anyway, my shop has like numerous copies of the whole series up to issue 16 or something, so I plan to eventually grab a copy of the whole thing. I have only read the first page of the first issue so far, but it has Howard contemplating suicide. So I'm pretty sure I already like this book.<p>I have the whole Samurai. It was expensive, but had some of the most beautiful art I have seen in a comic in awhile. Story was so-so though.

  • March 31, 2009, 10:48 p.m. CST

    Howard the Duck

    by kungfuhustler84

    I was looking through all of them at the shop. It's basically just a lot of 70s surreal satire, but it has cameos with some of the big Marvel guys (like Spidey). The single issues, if in okay condition, only cost around five dollars each, so if any of that sounded remotely interesting, it wouldn't be a huge investment.

  • March 31, 2009, 10:48 p.m. CST

    Samurai

    Yeah that fucking thing was expensive. At least the trade was the same price as buying the comics. I haven't read it buy I really dig the are. Did you read that Wolverine by that same French Marvel group? <P> I've skimmed through Agents of Atlas and haven't liked what I saw, though I read a preview and thought it was ok, but my comic load right now is pretty big. Like I think there are 10-20 comics coming out tomorrow that I have no money to buy.

    Trouble is, I like em all, so I can't figure out what to drop! any suggestions?<p>I haven't read your short story yet, but I promise I will. I'm back in school now so I'm busy reading 90 pages about Shakespeare. I have been wanting to read that though.

    a comics column on one (both?) of the sites. What do you think? My work load is pretty heavy, but if I could find time, I would totally do that.

    Shakespeare

    by Series7

    Just watch the Kenneth Branagh movie. Yeah I know what you mean about dropping anything. I keep trying to tell meself JUST WAIT FOR THE TRADE JUST WAIT FOR THE TRADE, but it never works. As for any suggestions I'd say anything DC, just becacuse I'm not reading any of there stuff except Vigilante and The Mighty. Though I did pick up that Commissioner Gordon one shot, not realizing that it really isn't a one shot that its part of this Battle For the Cowl. Man i don't know how anyone can keep up with both Universes, I find myself levitating more towards independent stuff, and miniseries.

    by kungfuhustler84

    I'm already pretty burned out on all the Dark Reign bull shit. I actually find Dark Avengers to be hilarious, but Thunderbolts is pretty boring. And I like Daredevil because it's actually funny, but the quality needs to go up, and he's getting a lot of exposure for a character a little one dimensional. The only other Marvel books I read are all on the fringe of the universe. The last Herc has Osborn, so I'm dropping it too. That motherfucker is in everything now, and it's pissing me off.<p>For DC I had Batman for awhile (now dropped), but mostly all I read is Vertigo stuff. I'm kind of Vertigos bitch at the moment, seeing as how like four of their books are my must-haves every week.

    by kungfuhustler84

    It's as funny as it was the first time I saw it. It has this sort of vintage 70s style in the scenes with Danny Glover. The whole cast besides the leads were the people that lived in the city where they filmed, and it's a pretty brilliant idea. The whole city has a lot more character because of the supporting cast locals.

    A Great Director.

  • April 1, 2009, 1:06 a.m. CST

    The funniest part about this movie

    by kungfuhustler84

    is that the attitude about the extinction of tapes because of DVDs is the same way I feel about the jump to BluRay vs. continuing to buy DVDs. And in the end, it ends up just being a message to people to make their own movies. All the creative ways they recreate the moments from stuff like Ghostbusters, especially if you consider the ludicrous things they do, like printing out pictures of their faces to film with negative light. Jack Black should star as Jackie Chan in the next Rush Hour movie.

    Marley and Me

    by Series7

    Fucking god awful movie. I don't know who this was meant for. You are an idiot if you fall for it, it has the most undeserved ending ever in movie history. My lady friend gave it to middle fingers up. It WAS so bad, if they just put have the effort in the rest of the film that they did in the last 5-10 minutes it may have been something. They mention some stories about how Marley sat beside while a kid was sick, and I am thinking???? why wasn't that in the movie I bet its in the book. Just a terrible hateful fill. The whole time I was watching it I couldn't get it out of my head how this dickhole has made MILLIONS upon MILLIONS for just being a douchebag who was too lazy to train his dog. I watched the whole movie with my dog laying on my chest as well. I mean that LIFE COMES AT YOU FAST montage was just so stupid. I hate the fact that they put all this time and effort to make the set pieces progress through the age and time period, but they didn't bother aging the humans. Also they didn't let us know anything about the dogs age, by the end of the movie I wasn't sure if the dog was 10 or 30? Which is a huge difference. Just an awful film. I can't believe how much money the whole thing made. All this film made me want to do is not own a big dog. Go watch My Dog Skip or CJ7, yeah that movie had an undeserved ending as well but at least its a damn good movie with a real message. All Marley and Me said was that people are too wrapped up in themselves to give a shit about anyone else. No wonder America is so full of assholes. I'm going to bed.

    by kungfuhustler84

    You can just tell from the movie. All those kids weren't actors, and the movie was shot on location. I'm pretty sure it was Gondry's idea to do that, and it's what really makes the movie work.

  • April 1, 2009, 2:26 a.m. CST

    No after the movie, I think maybe he wrote a book. They had an article about on here a while back, it pretty much tells you have to a make a community involved movie. I guess Be Kind Rewind was going to be something else but the whole community got involved and that is what plays out on screen. Like Gondry said that if people said they were serious about making a film in the fashion he set out then he would let them borrow a nice ass camera. Here this is the book I am talking about <P> http://tinyurl.com/c9ra8v

    by kungfuhustler84

    I just noticed it in the movie and was commenting about it. Guess it really was intentional with him. I think that was just his way of showing that it IS possible for an entire town to get together and make a movie. I think it was his way of encouraging others to get out there and make their own movies .

    by Echo_the_White

    if if I were up for that sort of thing, I'm not interested. Besides, a film like that needs the theater experience and the finsihed fx, etc to even halfway work. Why shoot it in the foot now.

    I wanted to see what all this hubbub with subtitles about. They don't really bothers me, but I remember some of the parts in the film had a lot more impact thanks to the subtitle's subtle translations. I will probably return (or sell back) this version for the one with the original subtitles once it comes out, but if I end up only owning this version, it wouldn't necessarily bother me.

Jarv does not recommend. <P>When A Stranger Calls is possiby the worst idea I have ever seen. <P>The only way to explain what it's like is this: <P>Remember the first 30 minutes of the original Scream? Remember how exciting that was back in 1996? Now, imagine if some doofus decided to extend that to feature length, add a ripped off idea from halloween, remove all violence to make it safely 13, and add an implausible and uninteresting boyfriend sub-plot. <P>Just wretched.

    Gilmore Girls box sets - £9.98 on Amazon

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I must admit, I am sorely tempted.<p>Trouble is, I don't know that I'm man enough to handle the piss-taking I'd get when any visitors noticed I had such an impressive collection of girly television. I might have to buy them and hide them somewhere. Gilmore Girls DVDs would be my secret shame.

    it isn't that it's a talky hokey bag of shit, well it is but that's not the point.

    I have to say, it's pretty much all my fault

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    The only reason I ever started going on about Gilmore Girls was because I thought it was funny to reference a show that no one here would ever watch. It was the iconoclast in me that did it. I have no problem with people taking the piss about it, because that was kind of the idea in the first place.<p>And I didn't stop talking about it because people asked me to (I don't think anyone ever did that), I stopped because I had finished watching it.<p>I will, however, promise not to talk about it too much now I'm going to start watching it again. Probably. Maybe.

  • April 1, 2009, 7:59 a.m. CST

    AICN and hypocrisy

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Honestly, I don't think it's hypocrisy on their part anymore. This site sold its outsider credentials at the first chance it had in a desperate attempt to suck up to various movie types. Which is fine with me, I suppose. It's Harry's site and he can pretty much do as he pleases with it.<p>It's been said before, but I'll say it again - the one and only reason this place is worth anything anymore is the talkbacks.

    by Droid

    I really couldn't care a less if you guys want to talk about Gilmore Girls. I've never seen it so I can't really comment. I've watched (and secretly enjoyed) some dire shit in my time. Shit, I used to wake up every saturday morning, gloriously hungover and stumble to the couch where I would tune in to E4 and revel in the almighty suckitude of One Tree Hill. And I loved it. THE perfect hangover tv. <p>And Hugh Grant ain't so bad. About A Boy was great and he was the only good thing about the Bridget Jones flicks. And Four Weddings etc was enjoyable as well. Notting Hill I hated (except for Spike) but I loathe and detest Julia Roberts. He's much better when he plays the lothario though.

    It was beyond awful, Jonah

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    One thing I've never understood in movies is when people act tough or irresponsibly brainless in the face of something that could kill them.<p>Aside from a lot of other stupid nonsense, my big beef with Transformers was John Turturro's character. Who talks back to a 60 foot robot? And more importantly, who captures one knowing his friends, also 60 foot robots with weaponry beyond our own, will come to his rescue? Who the hell is that stupid?<p>And that was repeated in Earth Stood Still. Who is stupid enough to hold an alien against their will and interrogate them when their spaceship is being guarded by an indestructible 60 foot robot who can shut down your defense systems? And then the military fires some missles into the spaceship? So our leadership is a bunch of cowboys intentionally looking to start a war with an advanced species who can obliterate the Earth? George Bush aside, the reckless nature of government and military portrayed in the movie was insulting and embarrassing.

    Sorry Series

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I saw it with my mom and between her cancer and her dog of 12 years being on it's last legs, she was in tears for half the movie. And that was very affecting to me.<p>And having lived with the same person for 10 years now, I will say that they go the dialogue of the couple arguing DEAD. BALLS. ON. So I was able to relate to that.<p>It's a movie I'll never watch again and I'm glad I downloaded it rather than give Fox a penny.

    by D.Vader

    --The opening credits but in live-action. I know they won't. But that would be a BADASS, stylish way to open the film (and every sequel thereafter). And it'd be quite a welcome surprise.

    Japanese intro the animated X-Men series

    by D.Vader

    Wow. I had no idea they had an alternate, anime style opening for the show. I think it rocks. And its got a ridiculous Japanese-rock-n-roll theme song with subtitles half in English, half in Japanese. Though honestly, the only English words they translate are the battle cry "SHOCK!!" and the very strange final words "Cry for the moon!!!" <p> Check it out. <p>http://tinyurl.com/d9m7cj

    I'm just messing HOD

    by Series7

    Its not your fault. I know that depending on your station in life that movie may or may not be for you. Just for me being a deadly serious dog trainer, just pissed me off that this lazy bastard made fist over fist of money for being lazy. Kind of makes you not want to try, and for a couple made of JOURNALIST they are the least inquizative people ever. Like Ex Mrs. Pitt while less irritating in this film, her typical style of acting made more sense for this part. Like when shit happened they never fucking questioned it. Like when the neighbor got stabbed they were like...OK that sucks whats for dinner. Or when she got the miscarriage they didn't fucking say a thing. You think they would ask at least one question seeing that they are JOURNALIST not columnist like 75% of this movie was about.

    Don't worry about using your hard earned cash on postage for us. At least, don't do it for me. If you gave me your address, I would send you cash to reimburse you, and provide the funds for more sets. Would $20 cover it? I'm totally serious here.

    Just a "Thanks dude! The package arrived!"

One of these days in the very near future when I get this screenplay sold, I'll host a get together for all of us. Until then, if anyone's in the area, my door is open.

    Here's footage of Fogler as Sam Kinison. While I agree that I don't think we'll get someone who can do this better, I think Fogler is missing the presence Kinison had that made him at every moment look so tightly wound and angry, like he would explode any second. <p>http://tinyurl.com/cx5qwm

    That's probably because Dan Folger isn't funny. He is also slated to be Hitchcock in an upcoming movie? <P> You know even though he is probably too much of a pussy to do the hard R needed to be a Sam movie, I think Frank Caliendo could possibly do it. I hate his show, I hate Mad TV, but Allah damn if that chubby little ball of stupid peoples money does not make me laugh my ass off when I see him on late shows. Seriously his late night appearances are the best. Anyone catch Letterman grilling O'Riely last night?
