Hah! Yes! I was starting to feel really bad, especially after I'd gone and read some of Zack Snyder's very sensible comments about the production.

Fuck you Snyder! Fuck you right in your evidently giving it your best shot and really thinking about what your doing ass!

Review of Che!

QUOTE
Originally announced as two separate films, “The Argentine” and “Guerrilla,” to be released separately, the film was shown as one picture, with intermission, under the title “Che” (although neither this nor any other credits appeared onscreen) in its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Neither half feels remotely like a satisfying stand-alone film, while the whole offers far too many aggravations for its paltry rewards. Scattered partisans are likely to step forward, but the pic in its current form is a commercial impossibility, except on television or DVD.

''Runaways'' being adapted for the screen

Nice to see that Marvel are starting to look at some of their less well-known properties. As much as I like the big-budget, big name stuff I do wish that there were more small-scale, more interesting comic-book films being put out.

In amongst all the big releases this summer, the film I'm probably most looking forward to, aside from The Dark Knight and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, is Gone, Baby, Gone, Ben Affleck's feature directorial debut based on the novel by Dennis Lehane.

I've been reading the book recently and it's easily one of the best modern crime novels I've ever read and, even though I realise that Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan are too young to play the characters, I'm still really looking forward to seeing how they bring the story to the screen.

It's also got two alumni of The Wire, Amy Ryan and Michael K. Williams in it, which is a big plus in my books (three if you count Lehane as the author of the original book but I don't know how involved he would have been involved in the production)

My mum and dad saw it when they were in the States back in November. They said it was easily one of the best films they saw last year.

I don't speak Spanish, but the trailer for 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' looks absolutely awesome.

Looky!

A Fincher adaptation of an F Scott Fitzgerald story is pretty much my dream come true. After watching the trailer I may be more excited about this than any other film this year, 'Zodiac' was phenomenal.

It's one of the best trailers I've ever seen, even though it's a crappy grainy copy and not in English.

Looking good. Even though I'm not a huge Fitzgerald fan, though I am an admirer, that does look quite marvelous. Is the music in the trailer used in Beauty And The Beast?

It's The Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals. I think they use a version of it in the prologue of 'Beauty and the Beast'.

It's such a beautiful trailer, it's hard not to get overexcited, which is a shame because it's not out till December. Lots of special effects to do I imagine.

The short story is rather dark and completely allegorical in tone, I hope that remains. It's certainly not a love story.

I like the fact that they haven't used any voiceover, apart from the very beginning and the end. I hope that when an English-language version appears they can use the same aesthetic. They also give the film a real fairy tale feel. Not having read the story, I don't know how true that sense is or should be, but it certainly has that feel to me and I find that very appealing.

Perhaps more fable than fairytale, but it remains to be seen how they'll interpret and pad it out to a couple of hours.

With Fincher at the helm, I'm sure brilliantly.

The short story is in the public domain, so I'm sure it's all over the internet if you wanted to read it.
