Bruce Willis as The Thing?
According to Cinematical, Bruce Willis could possibly play The Thing in the reboot/remake/”the new” Fantastic Four. The Die Hard star is wanted to play Ben Grimm on screen during the opening credits sequence, which will quickly present the team’s origins, and then voice the orange, rocky character after his transformation. Is Marvel only looking for bald actors to play...
5 Paintings That Should Inspire Movies
Cinema is an art. But many directors can’t exactly compare to the great painters of the past. If some of them had a pencil in their hands, they would probably be drawing lame comic strips. I think there’s a lot to be learned from paintings when it comes to composition, colors and visual narration. Ok, paintings can’t exactly tell a complex story, but a great one can make you...
Bruce Lee's Diet
Bruce Lee was a bad ass. I think that’s pretty much a fact. There’s no doubt that Ip Man’s training played a huge part in his life, but let’s not also forget that alimentation in training is almost half the battle. You could have the best trainer in the world, but if you eat fast food, it’s still bad for your body. (more after the jump) So since we live in a...
The Movie Doc's Prescriptions

From Ipod to Movies : Angry Birds the movie
What’s a script? A huge pile of paper? Throw that in the garbage will you, I’m too busy developping movies about softwares on my ipod. -Producer of Angry Birds: The Movie Another sad day for Hollywood. I can see this becoming a minor hit in the style of Dreamworks, and in 3D! Because you can’t just watch stuff being destroyed by birds in 2D. It begs for an extra...
Press Start : Robocop (NES)
I don’t know about you, but when I hear the name Robocop, usually I think about one thing: A badass robot. In fact, Robocop is so badass that in that game they decided that he would just go on a rampage. Yes, Robocop is pissed off! Why? Because…there are people…running on the streets…Ok, we don’t really care about the reason in the first place because...
Movie I'm HYPED for : Gilliam's The Man Who Killed...
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (20??) Genre: Comedy/?? Cast: ?? If there ever was a director born to direct an adaptation of Don Quixote, that man is without a doubt Terry Gilliam. Not only is he a dreamer, but he also fought harder to make this (still) unachieved movie than almost any direct in film history. Even months ago, when things started to look good once again, the producers...
Movies I'm HYPED for : Abrams' Super 8
Super 8 (2011) Genre: sci-fi/thriller/drama? Cast: A bunch of people It doesn’t really matter is you liked the ending of Lost, or the movie Cloverfield. This is J.J. Abrams doing an homage to the old school Steven Spielberg (think more like Jaws, Close Encounters, Duel, E.T.) PRODUCED by the man itself. Come to think of it, maybe it’s a little bit masturbatory, but...
Movies I'm HYPED for: Salles' On the Road
On the Road (2011) genre: drama cast: Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Terrence Howard, Steve Buscemi. Jack Kerouac was a genius. Even if I’m scared about the idea of a movie adaptation of such a lyrical book, I trust Francis Ford Coppola as a producer. So far the casting is impressive (Riley, Mortensen, Adams, Dunst, Stewart) and I...
Movies I'm HYPED for : Cuaron's Gravity
Gravity (2012) genre: sci-fi cast: Robert Downey Jr and Blake Lively or Scarlett Johansson release date: 2012 It’s hard to imagine how one could dislike Children of Men. It was quite possibly amongst the 10 best sci-fi pictures of the decade. So when the news came that Alfonso Cuaron was planing to make another sci-fi movie, all I could think was: Please sir, may I have some more? ...
Could Spielberg save the swashbucklers?
Last year, it was announced that Steven Spielberg had bought the rights to the novel Pirate Latitudes, written by Michael Crichton. Remember 17 years ago when Spielberg bought the rights to one of his books? That became Jurassic Park! Remember when he did a sequel to that movie 4 years later? That became the disaster known as The Lost World! It’s pretty safe to say that if one man...
Press Start #1: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
If by terrestrial the game means : falling endlessly into pits until the player becomes insane, then it really is extra terrestrial! The whole game is this: you find objects and fall into a bunch of pits. E.T. is a movie that I saw way too many times as a kid. I’ll probably talk about my feelings for that good old alien in one of my vlogs later on, but let’s just say that...

Dreyfuss is playing Hooper in Piranha 3d!
It’s probably old news to some of you, but Richard Dreyfuss will play an older version of Hooper in the remake of Joe Dante’s Jaws rip-off : Piranha 3d! The character isn’t exactly named Hooper, but his first name and his clothes are the same. He’s supposed to be the first one to die in the movie, in the opening sequence. Pretty awesome and classy move there...

WANNA LISTEN TO THE COMPLETE SCOTT PILGRIM...
Fact #1: The music of Scott Pilgrim is awesome. You’ll probably think that it’s more of an opinion, but when you have Beck, Metric and Broken Social Scene on a movie soundtrack, it becomes a fact. If you still have doubts, listen to the Beck Songs (Sex Bob-Ombs). Warning: THIS LINK will blow your mind.
Del Toro could make a video game?
source: Dread Central Make no doubt about it, director Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) sure is creative. So much in fact that it’s getting hard to keep track on his latest projects. Is it Frankenstein, Meg the giant shark, a new Hellboy, a new spanish movie? We never know! So for now, it would appear that he has signed with THQ (Red Faction, Saints Row) to develop...
Quantum Leap : The Movie
“Oh Boy!” Scott Bakula, star of the tv series Quantum Leap, says that we could expect a movie in development soon. As I’m sure that some of you aren’t exactly familliar with that tv show, here’s the concept according to Wikipedia: In each episode, Sam leaps into a new host, often finding himself in dangerous, embarrassing, or otherwise compromising...
In reaction to Youtube's rejection
*update on the Youtube situation : they disabled the revenue sharing on my review of Scott Pilgrim. Therfore: On september 13 I’ll delete every video that could possibly contain some copyright infrigement. I need to do this in order to be clean when I’ll apply for partnership. The music used in the videos will be protected by fair usage/use, which states that it’s not...
Great Cinematographers : Christopher Doyle
I love a good looking movie. Sadly, we never acknowledge the work of a great director of photography. Usually all the fame goes to the director, who plays the role of the orchestrator. You can have the best actors in the world, and the most wonderful shots in mind, but without proper lightining you would go nowhere. Christopher Doyle is perhaps Australian, but his art contributed to some of the...
The Music That Inspired Scott Pilgrim
Music is an important componant of the Scott Pilgrim universe. Not only is the character in a band of his own (Sex Bob-Omb), but the comics are also filled with references to various musicians. The movie is no different. Since we’re at the brink of it’s release, let’s see what inspired Brian O’Malley (and consequently, our friend Edgar Wright). PLUMTREE/“Scott...
