is cool isn't he. I want to be Megatron :(
omg. Coolest guy ever.
First Agent Smith
its just not on.
I think Elrond was a little to 'Smith-like'. Didn't we all expect him to call Frodo 'Missterr BAGGINS' in a sinister way?
Also, he was V in V for Vendetta.
V was equally cool as fuck.
whats your point?
as a comparison to his portrayal of Agent Smith.
Also I think it's a shame none of the cast read the scripts for Matrix II and III and said "This is utter shit. We're not going to be in it. Sorry."
but on past form Reeves would've thought it a comparatively brilliant script. But yes, Hugo should've kept away. Although he was the onyl good thing in those two films.
Is it wrong of me to have seen the trailersfor Transformers and suddenly thought 'actually, fuck me, this might be awesome'?
Because the trailer looks identical to the trailers for:
The War of the Worlds
The Day Before Tomorrow (or whatever it was called)
were ace though. And one of those ace ones involved Steven Spielberg.
and they were shit.
I didn't dare go near the second two, but Spielberg directed War of the Worlds which is by no means a parallel to him being one of a many faceless producers to a film.
I imagine War of the Worlds was well directed but can that really offset having Dakota Fanning in it?
as is spielberg's war of the worlds. it looks fantastic, and has a really creepy vibe running through it.
Independance Day was text book school-boy moron sci-fi action gold!
War Of The Worlds is good. Its Spielberg doing school boy moron sci-fi action again, which is nice, and still manages to be entertaining regardless of Fanning, Cruise and various others. I like it.
in the cinema. It was shit both times apart from a good Will Smith performance.
I'll probably try to see War of the Worlds at some point.
I saw Independence Day once at the cinema. It was amazing.
You are gay.
I would lay £100 down right now that says I would find it just as awesome now.
I also liked the Matrix sequels. HA!
on them is the same?
I'm sure i've seen trailers sharing the same soundtrack... (The Rock and Armageddon- I'm sure of this!)
because the soundtrack for the film isn't finished yet, you momo!
That said, Hans Zimmer has done a lot of scores for Bruckhimer's films and he always writes the same shit.
Though random music selected for a films trailer might produce some hilarity.
I think 'Funky Town' might work for transformers.
I'm sure it would...
not Bruckheimer. I'm probably wrong.
Frank Welker is Megatron. I was disappointed, until I remembered Frank Welker was The Brain.
Oh wait, no he wasn't. But he was definitely in that show.
I've heard that Transformers will use rubbish CGI rather than proper costumes made out of boxes.
(Also heard rumours that Soundwave is a pink ipod mini)
it's going to totally rape my childhood. damn you, michael bay!
looks genuinely half decent
just about any film look good in a trailer.
when some pesky kids insist on shouting 'wow, i want to see that'...grinds my gears.
Also naff- trailers that basically summarise the film in 30 seconds.
see my post above.
It looks the most mind-numbingly uninspiring trailer ever.
Transformers aren't meant to be complex emotional robot things with subplots! They're slightly camp robots that turn into fast cars, tanks and other cool stuff.
Rodimus Prime in season 3...
He was shit, was Rodimus.
Milking my love for giant robot movies in these flashy ads. I know this is going to be shit but since it has giant robots I'm going to have to go see it now, don't I?
Rule no.1 of film-making: every film would be better with giant robots in it. Even Fargo. And 12 Angry Men.
would the robots be in place of the suspect or the jury. If it were the jury, tere'd be no room in their little office, if it were the suspect, then I'm pretty sure he'd be able to have done that thing they disporve by whatshisface pacing out the room a bit. I love 12 Angry Men, but haven;t seen it for years. Hence these sketchy details.
Because then you have the interesting "jury prejudiced against giant robots" angle. In which case we can flip the ending on its head, and have the juror who thinks the robot's innocent pilot him in the final scene and blow the rest of the jury away with his radioactive laser beam of DEATH.
