  This has been around a long while, it's actually from "The Onion" movie.  Hilarious though  8)


Well I only just saw it and was quite well aware that it`s just a joke trailer.Anyway it was good to see that Seagal has sense of humour  ;)

About Edge Of Darkness,so it seems that the original (this time a TV-series) is once again better than a remake  ??? I think I´ll go to see it anyway as it`s been awhile since I saw Mel Gibson on a big screen.Btw did they used in the film anything from the series`s original score by Michael Kamen and Eric Clapton??I loved it.

Invictus opens in Finland tomorrow so I probably see it on saturday  8)

I went to see Edge Of Darkness with my father last night. I agree with Conan about the characters. I really liked the movie though. There was much suspense and Mel Gibson was back in vintage Mel mode.  O0 This is one to see at the theater.

I figured you knew it was a joke.  You should see The Onion flick, that Seagal character is better in the context of the movie.  He actually shows up at the end to "save the day" as the C-Puncher.

The music was fine in "Edge of Darkness", though I don't think the Clapton/Kamen score from the TV show was used.

I'm looking forward to the Coen brothers' next film, True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin. LINK

The novel is really good... would love to see a movie that hits its tone a little better than the 1969 film version did.

Didn't know that True grit was based on a novel, but i consider the 1969 Wayne movie the second greatest John Wayne movie of all time (next to The searchers) When the Coen brothers delivers the goods, they REALLY deliver, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my hopes high on this one  ;)

I've been missing out in the cinema lately (last one was The imaginarium of Doctor Parnassusa about a month ago), so i got quite a list to go through; The road, The wolfman, Edge of darkness, and Shutter Island with Book of Eli and Invictus looming in the horizon.
So where do you think I should start?

I saw it 3 days ago, with one of my daughter (3D version) and I must admit that I found it good, despite of the stupid presentation of the Army, a real caricature.
The Avatars are very well made, and I was pleased to see Sigourney Weaver in it. 
But that won't be one of my "top ten list" films ...

Don't say that, KC :) Avatar is showing up in cinemas here for months and I never had any desire to watch it. It just doesn't appeal to me...
And no sight of Invictus yet :-\

Have just returned from seeing Shutter Island.
While the movie felt a bit locked down by its own plot twists in the end, it was still a solid performance by DeCaprio, and a good story told in the usual stylished Scorsese way. I'll give it a solid 4/6 bordering a 5/6.

"Shutter Island", yesterday evening

I liked it very much  ! It is a very good film, and just like Dane said it in the previous post "solid performance" for Leonardo di Caprio, who has got a very powerful and difficlult part to play. I will give 9/10 !

 :) Did someone already see "Crazy Heart" with Jeff Bridges ?

The trailer is very good, and it will be on French sceens on Wednesday the 3rd. I like this actor very much, and I'm pleased his own "cinema actu " is very important  this year  ;)

DiCaprio performance was probably the only thing I enjoyed. Very disappointed with this film. I didn't have any great expectations. As I said in the Scorsese thread, the trailer looked interesting but the film bored me. When I start looking at my watch before the hour mark, I know somethings wrong.

2/5.

Have you seen it KC?

After seeing your post in the Scorsese thread again, I'm thinking no?

I've seen the trailer several times. (It showed with Invictus, for one.) And I thought it looked unbelievably dreadful. I kept stifling comments like "Acting! This movie is gonna have acting!"

But I could be wrong ... you should never judge a movie by its trailer.

Actually the best thing about the film today was probably the trailers for upcoming pics.

There's a sequel to Wall Street directed by Oliver Stone and starring Michael Douglas. The trailer shows Gordon Gekko getting out of prison and his getting his personal belongings back and they hand him a mobile phone. One of those 1980's bricks. ;D I think I even saw Eli Wallach's name in the credits that they flash up on screen at 100 miles an hour.

And a new Matt Damon film about Iraq. That looks like a good actioner.
