To me it feels like they took The Raid: Redemption and re-skinned it Judge Dredd.

I'm trying really hard to resist the urge to pinch the bridge of my nose and say, "You know where The Raid probably got that idea, right?"

So, I'll ask that question, sans nose-pinching:

You know where The Raid probably got that idea, right?

I went to see the Stallone version and wondered why everyone else found it sucky - I didn't have a clue that it was a graphic novel adaptation. And then people who had read it explained the differences to me and I understood their point. All these years later and I never got around to reading it. But I love movies like this and so I shall go see it and rely on you people to tell me if it came close. Smile

Saw a preview for Skyfall and that looks awesome.

And it may be heretical to say it, but I'm really kinda sick of the trailer for The Hobbit.

I went to see Frankenweenie last night. It was super lovely. A perfect kids Halloween film.

Has anyone else has seen Tim Burton's short version? It was an extra on the Nightmare Before Christmas DVD, along with Victor, which was a poem and animation with Vincent Price doing the narration. Lovely stuff. Both. But this is Vincent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxQcBKUPm8o

I'm stoked to see Wreck-It Ralph, because this is my childhood we're talking about.

That looks like it could be a rather charming movie. Brandon reports that he would like to see it because it has Bowser in it.

Motley, I've always thought that Frankenweenie would make a good feature length movie.

World War Z




I think it looks like an okay Zombie Action Movie but a pants WWZ.

I saw a preview of it in 3D and it looked really weird. I want to see it in regular 2D as well.

Holy cow.

3 trailers for 3 books.

Life of Pi

WWZ

Cloud Atlas

I swear, I know Holywood gets accused of lacking ambition, but these are 3 films that certainly can't be accused of that.

Having seen the trailers, I still can't decide whether I am dreading or looking forward to them.

i *really* want to love Life of Pi, because i do love the book, but please in the name of all authors, please don't let them have messed around TOO MUCH with the story.

I've heard very good things about Argo and I'm liking Ben Affleck's work as a director so far.

Argo was excellent!

It was like a slow trickle of tension all the way through - just superbly done!

Have we discussed Much Ado anywhere?

I liked it, it's one of my favourites of Bill's anyway so it's hard to ruin.

I tend to compare it to Ken Branagh's one, as I *loved* that and it was the one I saw after I'd studied the play.

Nathan Fillion was very good, *way* better than Micheal Keaton, who was far too broad.

Sean Maher was also very good, *way* better than Keanu, but then *I* was a better Don John than Keanu.

But...spoiler obscuring white text follows: Joss completely ruined it by showing Benedick and Beatrice 'got together' (in the modern parlance), before the events of the play. Undermined the whole tension between them.

But I saw it at The Rex

Which was the perfect place.

I saw your spoiler as being pre play and the reason she was so angry at him.
