Some Movies

Post by Mark

With all this free time now that Ramadan has started I was able to watch a few movies the past two days. I watched Cinderella Man first and I didn’t like it. It was too long and it starts off very sad and doesn’t really turn into a happy movie by the end. Million Dollar Baby was way better. I watched Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy second, I had never read the book but the movie was pretty cool. I mean any movie where earth gets blown up in the first 5 minutes must be cool. The movie was filled with a variety of weird and strange characters so it was very odd and entertaining. Finally I watched Land of the Dead yesterday night. This was fun to watch. Its not as scary as Dawn of the Dead or 28 Days Later but it was interesting none the less and it did play from a different perspective. This is the only zombie movie I have watched where the movie makes you side with the zombies. It’s definetly worth watching.

Movie Week

Post by Mark

I downloaded a couple of movies over the weekend, they are:

Four Brothers
Cinderella Man
The Brothers Grimm
Kill Bill 2
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

So far I watched Four Brothers and it was a pretty cool movie with a great soundrack. I liked Marky Mark since he was part of “Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch” so I usually like all his movies. Tonight I am going to watch The Brothers Grimm which I am expecting to be as weird as Terry Gilliam’s previous movies.

The Shining, Redux

Post by Mark

The Shining is one of my favorite movies and directed by one of my favorite directors, Stanley Kubrick. So I was really intrigued when I found a link to a remake of the original trailer.

A post-production house organized a competition where assistant editors ‘re-cut’ trailers for famous movies to try and make them seem like different movies.

The one that won was the re-cut to The Shining movie. The movie was originally a horror / thriller yet you would never ever imagine that with this re-cut trailer, while watching it I kept thinking it was another movie. [Video 9.36MB]

Update: This is the original trailer. [Link]

Best Horror Movie Ever?

Post by Mark

Just watched the trailer to the upcoming moving Slither. For a second I thought it was going to be a spoof, but it seems they are aiming to become the scariest movie ever.

Here is the link to the trailer. [Video 6.9MB]

The Ring 2 DVD Campaign

Post by Mark

This is the freakiest idea ever. To help promote the The Ring 2 DVD, a new website was created called 7daysleft.

Visitors to the DVD launch site www.7daysleft.com are invited to scare their friends by entering their email address and mobile telephone number. The site then sends an email to the visitors friend, inviting them to click on a link, and watch the video. As they’re watching it, their mobile phone rings, and a voice whispers “Seven days” down the phone. The viewer is then given the option to send the viral to five of their friends.

Superman Returns Footage

Superman Returns

IDontLikeYouInThatWay had a link to footage from the new Superman Returns movie coming out next year, the movie was 81MB and really didn’t show much footage from the movie, it was mostly footage from Comic Con and Bryan Singer with very little of the actual movie. So for those of you who don’t want to download 81MB just to see a few seconds from the actual movie, here are some screen shots highlighting some of the best footage.

Last Days

Last Days

Gus Van Sant
, the director behind great movies like Elephant and Good Will Hunting just released a new movie last month called Last Days. The movie is loosely based on the last days of Nirvana’s lead singer Kurt Cobain who died in 1994. Michael Pitt who plays the lead role in the movie as a musician named Blake looks like Kurt Cobain, dresses like him and dies like him at the end of the movie. You can watch the trailer on Apple’s website [here] and you can check out the official site [here]. I can’t wait to watch this movie since I love Nirvana and it was a really shock to me when Kurt Cobain died. I was in Montreal when it happened and I remember the music channel there, Much Music played Nirvana songs all day long.

Ebert’s Most Hated Movies

Post by Mark

Via Kottke, here is a list of Roger Ebert’s most hated movies with his reasons for not liking them. [Link]

Ebert’s a nice guy, I’ve seen him a couple of times on Jay Leno and always wished I had his job of just watching movies all day long. I don’t think his taste is very cool though, I prefer Rollingstone’s movie reviews, they are a lot cooler and younger then Ebert AND they gave Dukes of Hazzard zero stars! I found that very funny.

NetLag

Post by Mark

NetLag

NetLag is a beautiful shortfilm by Pleix. What appears at first as a map of the world with continents lit by electric lights becomes a series of web and video cameras from across the world set in sync with each other to mimic days, nights, and seasonal progressions. To create the movie, Netlag combined footage from over 1609 live web cameras while the music to Netlag was composed by Henrik José aka BLISS. The title of the track is Do You Remember How It Felt?
