Sure, there have been some exceedingly cheesy live action iterations of the The Lone Ranger, but there have also been some dark, brilliant, visionary versions in the comics as of late. Which way will Disney be taking it with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer starring? Your guess is as good as ours… have a look at this mini-featurette and three exclusive scenes from the movie and get a bit of an idea for yourself. Johnny Depp DID nearly get trampled to death by horses making it, so that’s not nothing.
Watch 7-minutes of Scenes and Interviews from Django Unchained! When Tarantino gets his hands on a genre, you can bet he’s going to do something that honours it while turning it on its ear. By the looks of Django Unchained, his streak is alive and well. This time, he’s taken the classic Spaghetti Western genre from the 60′s, and with a cast like Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s a pretty safe bet that, off the chain, Django will be off the hook.
Watch 8-minutes of the musical event of the year with advanced footage from the film and cast & crew interviews. Will the Oscar-winning director of the King’s Speech bring us a ground-breaking filmed version of the mega-hit musical? Or will the experimental recording method ruin what hardcore musical geeks have been falling in love with since the 80′s? Musical geeks are split on what we might be in for… so take a look and let us know what YOU think!
Just when you thought the Wachowski’s hit rock bottom with Speed Racer,the worst cartoon racing movie of all time, they manage to make Cloud Atlas, the worst Sci-Fi Film, the worst Pirate Movie, the worst Zany Geriatric Escape-Comedy, the worst Victorian Romance, the worst 70′s Blaxploitation flick, AND the worst Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy film ALL AT ONCE, smashing them into the most excruciatingly unbearable 3-hour marathon of audience abuse ever made.
Once it stole 3 hours of our lives away and we felt the deep responsibility to prevent it from happening to you… and yet we can’t bring ourselves to shoot a video review, thereby allowing more precious moments of our lives to be sacrificed on the altar of Cloud Atlas.
No Orlando and no Kiera? But we get McShane and Cruz instead? Sounds like a good recipe, but going back to the well after the trilogy has been told is risky. We’re hearing any subsequent Pirates films will be strictly one-offs, so let’s talk about how they set the precedent with “On Stranger Tides”!
Adapted from a book that’s loosely based on Facebook’s amazing rise to ubiquity, The Social Network has a lot more going for it as a film than it does as a history lesson. But Matt & Nat both agree that this is a must-see film, even if it doesn’t quite fill the big-screen at the multiplex. So if you don’t have the time or cash to catch it in the theatre, you can forgive yourself for watching it on your TV, iPad or PSP.
The difference between a successful yet soulless blockbuster and a well-crafted film that’s marketed blockbuster is sometimes ignored by movie studios with dollar-signs in their eyes. But in the case of Prince of Persia, Disney and Bruckheimer actually created a piece of entertainment with some heart, a strong story and some great characters to go along with a heaping serving of action-packed video game inspired eye-candy!
After 14 video games and over two decades, the Prince of Persia is getting his own movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina. And with Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer on board, the bar is set pretty high for action, comedy, romance and adventure. But will it bring us all the elements that have made two generations of gamers fall in love with the source material? Watch our preview and let us know what YOU think!
