they're rebooting the franchise it seems:
um ok then.
There aren't many great fourth films in a series - mind you it couldn't have been much worse than Superman IV or Batman and Robin.
a gritty reboot where master splinter abused leonardo and shredder is a misunderstood outsider with intimacy issues, and a gruff voice
also the two steroid abusing, bipedal rhino's will only be baddies cos they have cancer or something and that brain in a jar has a cure. also the brain in a jar will be voiced by liam neeson
Liam Neeson will do anything at the moment won't he
Evil Dead 4 then. After enjoying 'Drag me to hell' I'd love to see what he would do with a big budget on a new Dead film.
Peter Parker is a mild-mannered yet genius-level high school student. He has no friends and the only people who care about him are his Aunt May and his Uncle Ben, who adopted him after his parents died (we know this, I know, but just shut the fuck up, alright?).
Anyway, he gets bitten by a radioactive yadayada, and he finds himself suddenly able to turn the tables on his bullies and tormentors and...and...turn the tables...and...uh...errmmm...
...sorry, I can't do it.
What else is there to add to the films Raimi made? It's not like Batman 1, where they screwed up some of the legend/myth/backstory, and so gave Nolan a clear chance to reinterpret and revisit things we only ever saw in the comics. What possible "new direction" could Sony take the Spider-Man character in? I suppose they could make Peter Parker seem less creepy (Tobey Maguire frightens me quite badly in the first one, especially when he takes photos of MJ in the lab).
where his origins are different
Peter Parker is a mild-mannered yet genius-level house spider. He has no friends and the only people who care about him are his Aunt May and his Uncle Ben, who adopted him after his parents died / were caught with a glass and a bit of paper and thrown out of the window.
Anyway, he gets bitten by a radioactive high school student, and he finds himself suddenly able to turn the tables on his bullies and tormentors...
Just, why? Why spend probably months writing something that's never gonna get made rather than using that time to write an original script that, ok - admittedly probably won't get made, but at least stands a chance?
Moving back to the point - yeah, it's too soon for a reboot. It did badly lose its way in the last film though.
You know, if you want to write for Star Trek you actually write a script for a show like ER, something very far removed from your target, thus showing you have writing skills but not risking you'll accidentally write something that could impact on the script ideas they already have.
In short: he could send it into a studio who might like it enough to hire him to write something else. Or they'll do a Die Hard: With a Vengence and re-write the Spider-Man script for a different film franchise. :D
i've not seen it but i have not heard many positive things about it.
he's also a member of the Vanderbilt family: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanderbilt_family
I saw it on the plane and wasn't expecting much but overall it comes off pretty well but I'm not an X-Men geek. To me it was about the same level as X-Men but not as good as X-Men 2 and I've not seen X-Men 3.
Anyway, as far as scripting goes I'd say it was decent enough.
does whatever a spider-vamp does
Why not just make a Spider-Man film? Just take it as read that anyone who doesn't already know how Spider-Man came to be and his family set up probably doesn't want to see a Spider-Man movie anyway. Look at Sherlock Holmes: there was no set up, no explanation because everyone already knows about the characters...
fuck this rebooting bullshit, just call it a prequel
just be about some kid's parents dying?
this so much.
they're just gonna remake the first film right but do it in 3D to make a bucket full of moolah right?....
but the ammount of idiots that will still go and watch, it deserves to get made.
see posts on here in 2012
'yah...it was ok actually...still not sure why they needed to start again but i quite enjoyed it. he looks good swinging in 3D'
those studio folk...they aint silly.
ARACHNIDGUY vs THE BLUE HOBGOBLIN
Paul Parka, Harold Osbourne, Norbert Osbourne, Marey Jayne Witson.
inexplicably be one in which a giant snake and larger-than-normal pug dog fight it out while a naked girl screams? Preferably preceded by a scene in which two people wearing stained labcoats pour different coloured liquids into the same beaker and then turn and stare at each other.
ArachnidGuy's best friend is also a talking pie.
Also, I found this on the Asylum website. BEST FILM NAME EVER?: http://theasylum.cc/product.php?id=159
i've mentioned this before but how amazing is the front cover for their sherlock holmes film? http://theasylum.cc/product.php?id=164
it has a dinosaur, a dragon AND a kracken. fuck off jude law.
I want to see The Asylum's version of Sherlock Holmes more than the Robert Downey Jr. one. Incredible cover scenes.
"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective faces the ultimate challenge when enormous monsters attack London." Why haven't I seen this yet?
did they do that?
there's a list of their fine cinematic output on here at the bottom:
Three words for you all. Jazz. Club. Breakdown.
...with a swing-dance rejection in front of your friends.
what the fuck was with the sandman in the last movie? i loved the first two movies but i was scared of the third cos i'd heard it was rubbish so i only saw it a couple of months ago.
what the fuck was with him?! he was trying to kill everyone and then the other guy gets defeated and then without anything happening he's suddenly all repentant?! wtf
Too many villains, too much studio inteference, too much in general.
against all adversity some dude forgives the guy who didn't murder his evil dad.
he doesn't know how to do that and didn't think he could figure it out in time for Sony's deadlines.
I fucking hate 3D movies. Why does anyone think it's a good idea?
for that exact reason.
OH GOD NO
not 3D studio-controlled spiderman! this is going to suck MAJOR ED BALLS.
To be feair they do seem to try and do a major reboot with the comics every couple of years, so it fits with Marvel's boneheaded strategy.
It wasn't as good as 2 (Alfred Molina turning a pretty shit henchman from the comics into an inspired picture of pathos ridden complexity) and it tried to cram too much in, but it was still 6.5-7/10
People seem to go so overboard with films now. It's either OMGZ BEST FILM EVER or OMGZ THIS WAS WORSE THAN HITLER.
ALSO why the fuck is it not 12pm? i am fucking HANK MARVIN
Is that ok, Rob? Is it?!
It's when the standard "I didn't like" so to always become "IT'S AN ABORTION"
I think with Spidey 3 it was the disappointment that gives it those terrible reviews. Kind of like people's reaction to the Star Wars prequels which ARE bad but not on the scale they are often accused of being.
I thought the 3rd one was the best one. The scene where he's really cool and dancing around that club is probably the best scene in any Spiderman film.
and they can dowhat they want, they will always be dire. I completley 100% guarentee it.
The statement contains the word 'low budget', 'cast of unknowns', 'high school' and 'angst'.
It's going to be a shit version of 'Smallville' on a big screen, isn't it?
