Just seen the new karate kid trailer. I have to say I don't like the look of it. The insertion of the Chineese vs American element inserts an ideological element that betrays the qualities of the original film.

Very interesting - it's rare to hear Chris Morris talk at length about any of his work, and I had heard beyond the premiere Q+A he wasn't doing any interviews at Sundance, so good find there.

Just seen the Clash Of The Titans trailer. Very silly. Seeing Liam Neeson as Zeus (or Captain Shiny-Armour) reminded me of Krull, where he was just a bandit.

Absolutely.

The bit about Martin Amis "thrashing some life back into his... limp member" gave me a hearty guffaw.

I didn't know there is a remake of The Black Hole in the offing, by the same guy who is currently making Tron: Legacy apparently . . .

Centurion Looks dumb, still better than Clash of the Titans, but from the look of the trailer and the people involved it could be good. I'll probably not go and see it though.

Dinner for Schmucks

Despite the fact it's a remake of possibly my favourite comedy film ever (which I watched again for the umpteenth time last night) - the French Le Dīner de Cons (1998) - I'm genuinely excited by the cast list for this adaptation:


Steve Carell
Paul Rudd
----
Jemaine Clement
Lucy Punch (Hot Fuzz's 'Eve')
Bruce Greenwood
David Walliams
Ron Livingston
Chris O'Dowd




Originally slated for remake status back in 1999/2000 I think, as a Kevin Kline vehicle, which could easily have worked.

In short, it's an absolutely superb choice of vehicle for Steve Carell (earmarked for the 'schmuck' role), and with Paul Rudd cast as his co-lead, this could prove to be a real winner. I have a suspicion the likes of Clement, O'Dowd (Marco, Blind Swordsman - yay!) and Walliams may likely only garner fleeting cameos during the very start of the film. Depends how drastically the original Francis Veber screenplay has been 'adapted', given that it is originally a stage play, and primarily focussed on a central core of 2-6 people throughout the bulk of the film, and in a singular set location. Because of this, the original clocks in at only 77 minutes, but judging by the extended number of other 'schmuck' characters ('Beard Champion') in the cast list, there could well be extra play for additional giggles outside of the central farce itself. Potential laughterfest.

I don't normally get too excited about the prospects of remakes/adaptations, and I could easily get quite precious about this once the first trailer emerges... but I'm genuinely excited at the prospect of this one. I dearly hope this adaptation does the original screenplay justice, as it's surely a comedy masterpiece. That said, the overall castings are looking bang on. I already have raised expectations, not to mention all fingers, legs and toes crossed. And it's scheduled for release soon after my birthday, too - BonusYay!


I would also add, if you haven't seen the orignal I would strongly recommend it. I've said so before, I know, but it does bear repeating.
Ade
Really liking the prospect of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's MicMacs, too. I've read several sources already describing it as a blend of Amelie and Delicatessen - I can't wait! Should be veeeerrrry interesting.
Ade
Me again.

Well, the new issue of Empire is out; 250th issue birthday edition. Nice articles on '25 Years of Back To The Future' and '80 years of Clint Eastwood'. Oh, and Kick-Ass gets a solid five-star review.

I always view Empire scores as give or take two stars. Which sort of defeats the whole object of paying attention. I sit up and take notice if it's a 5 star or 1 star review, but they seem to give four stars to anything as a default setting if people are looking forward to it and they don't want to upset fanboys.

God bless Cinema City, Norwich. Just got back from watching MicMacs.

You're gonna love it, Sefi.

In fact, I defy anyone not to enjoy it (unless you have a morbid fear of subtitles) - it really is an absolute delight from start to finish. Other than reading a brief outline of the film while it was still in production (most of which I'd forgotten), and skimming over the recent flurry of rave reviews, I'd deliberately avoided spoilers. Unsurprisingly perhaps, it wasn't what I was expecting at all. It's not as dark and grimy as Delicatessen, although it does have its moments. It clearly bears closest kinship with Amelie in its overall warmth and good humour, with a hint of love interest too, but 85% of it is pure visual poetry with endless ladles of comical set-pieces on both a grand and miniscule scale - it had me laughing regularly out loud, and constantly grinning throughout. I truly haven't enjoyed a film this much in such a long time; it's going to warrant many repeat viewings. And it made me pine for Paris again.

Ade says 'five stars'.

Yes, out of five.

Vis-a-vis Dany Boon, I've just this second discovered (thanks to IMDB) that he's also in the other French film I want to see at my local luxury cinema: Welcome To The Sticks (2008), the premise of which struck me a little in mind of Hot Fuzz. Allegedly the most successful French film of all time, the trailer certainly makes it look good fun. Apparently there are only a few prints circulating the UK at present, so quite when my cinema is going to get it is still a bit up in the air, though it's allegedly meant to be very soon.

Stepping back to Cinema City Norwich for a moment, I was rather buzzed to see a poster for a film called Southern Softies starring none other than John Shuttleworth, Graham Felloews' alter ego. Why wasn't Iinformed of this!? Furthermore, it's showing on Monday evening, following by a Q&A session with Fellowes himself, in character no less. I think I'll be making another trek...

I'm glad that this project is still alive. I remember him talking about it when he was doing the promotional tour for Forgetting Sarah Marshall and there has been precious little news on it since.

I think everyone who saw 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' has just been waiting for Segel to make the next Muppet movie - I have high hopes.

It's going to be directed by James Bobin, too, which is pretty interesting. Jason Segal + Muppets + co-creator of Flight of the Conchords = too good to be true?

Not sure how I feel about the badguy in this utilising the same (sort of) power source as Stark like the bad guy in the first one. I know it works in the story I guess but hopefully there'll be something different in the 3rd.
Starscream`s Ghost
It looks good, but I can't bear Johansson and Cheadle. Hopefully they're not in it too much.

I get not liking Johannson but what's wrong with Cheadle? I guess I do think I prefer the original guy to Cheadle as War Machine.

I've just never been keen on him as an actor. Maybe he'll be ok in this, we'll see. But I doubt it.

It does have me a bit worried that it'll just turn into 30 minutes of metal men hitting each other at the end like the first one did, but that trailer also suggests that the wit and humour are still very much in place to balance it out.

Also, Sam Fucking Rockwell.
