Who could play John Marston in the Red Dead Redemption Movie?
In the videogame universe, Red Dead Redemption is one of the prime exemples of how games can developp a narrative experience with cinematic qualities. In this game, you play as John Marston, a cowboy who used to be a ruthless killer. His family has been kidnapped and he must fight the scumiest bad guys to get there.
The irony is that it’s been rumored to be adapted as a feature film (but don’t worry, Uwe Boll isn’t involved). The game itself takes inspiration from movies like Django or Fistfull of Dollars, so it’ll certainly look quite familliar.
So far, Brad Pitt has been rumored as John Marston, but I think it’s lazy casting. Sure, ‘The Assasination of Jesse James…’ was great but it really doesn’t feel right when I think about the character. So here’s my suggestion and feel free to comment if you agree or disagree:
It’s been confirmed, as you probably suspected, that Avatar will be released on Blu Ray 3D. But the surprise is that it’s going to be out just in time for Christmas…if you have a Panasonic 3d television!
It’s interesting to see how unfriendly to the customers the different majors are. How can you expect them to switch to this format if it’s full of exclusives? So far, Panasonic have Avatar, Coraline and Ice Age.
You should also probably expect James Cameron to pull out a “George Lucas” and re-release Avatar in a super extra exlusive and extended edition later on. Double dipping is a rule when it comes to popular movies.
“I loved growing up in Canada. It’s a great place to grow up, because—well, at least where I grew up—it’s very multicultural. There’s also good health care and a good education system. So it’s a great place to be from, although, when I was 8, I was walking to school one day and I saw a frozen cat by the side of the road, and I picked it up and hit it against a tree.”—Ryan Gosling
Nostalgia - it’s delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
Fox, who picked up the distribution rights, have confirmed moments ago that Tree of Life (aka the ‘movie of the year’) will be released on May 27 2011. That’s a long wait! A pretty darn long wait if you ask me, but at least we know that it’s going to be worth it.
Tree of Life is a coming of age story told during the 50’s. We don’t know much about it, except that it stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. That alone is worth your movie ticket!
Terrence Malik, who is regarded as one of the best american filmmakers, has directed some pretty influential films such as Badlands, Days of Heaven and Thin Red Line.
It’s hard to know how the future will turn out in 25 years. Even if we don’t have flying cars or cool hoverboards, some of the predictions made by Back to the Future turned out to be true. For instance, now they really have a baseball team in Miami!
But perhaps the greatest joke in the whole movie is the advertising for Jaws 19. Ironically, it’s almost criticizing the whole remake movement of our era and poking fun at the expense of Robert Zemeckis, who became obsessed with 3d since then.
"The shark still looks fake", says Marty unaware of his brilliant meta-film joke.
T-shirts aren’t just pieces of clothing, they’re a personality statement: “Hey, my name is Bob and I like Fry in Futurama!”. Of course, if you’re a geek like me, the last thing you want is to get the same t-shirt as everyone else. So here’s what I like for guys (I’ll do something for girls later):
When Snakes on a Plane was released, it has been called “unrealistic” and “stupid”, but it was a warning sign for things to come. This is what happens if you don’t have Samuel L. Jackson on board: your plane crashes and you all die. Since Samuel L. Jackson is the king of cool, things like that wouldn’t even happen.
If the comedies of John Hughes can be seen as quintesential 80’s movies, we could say the same about Kevin Smith and the 90’s. The sega genesis, the Batman references, Weezer, the 3d posters, almost everything makes you feel old if you were born during the late 70’s or mid 80’s.
Even though some scenes are still hilarious, future generations probably won’t bother watching this movie. Kevin Smith’s writing isn’t as sharp as we’re used to here, which probably explains why it bombed in theaters. The driving force is obviously Jason Lee’s performance. It actually gives a redeeming quality to what would otherwise be known as a bad movie.
Leonardo Dicaprio's Twilight Zone : Why it could change Sci-Fi
“Imagination… its limits are only those of the mind itself.”
Apparently, Leonardo Dicaprio’s Twilight Zone revival on the big screen is moving forward, as Warner Bros confirms that Jason Rothenberg has been hired as a screenwriter. Unfortunately, that guy has never wrote a movie before, so we have to rely on Dicaprio’s reputation and good taste.
