I didn't realise the book was even out til I saw it for $60 in Real Gravy the other week. Just downloaded the audiobook, will listen tonight when I'm drawing.
I really liked Rant

My uncle is a stuntman in sydney works for fox studios, hes done some of the stunts for Jack in this, they did alot of filming in the South Island too he said, around the LOTR area etc etc.



i hope this doesn`t affect the continuity of the film but both TYLER MANE who played sabretooth in X1 and BRIAN COX who played col stryker in X2 wanted to reprise their roles for ORIGINS but we`re obviously turned down in favour of other actors.....seems stupid to me to deny that

DAS WEISSE BAND (Michael Haneke)

No pics yet, description:
Strange events happen at a rural school in the north of Germany during the year 1913, which seem to be ritual punishment. Does this affect the school system, and how does the school have an influence on fascism?

Haneke has never made a bad film (although he did make the same one twice...)

plus THE FANTASTIC MR FOX (Wes Anderson). Perhaps something new to get away from father-obsessed white males... but then again, Darjeeling was his best in my opinion.

Adventureland - Guy who directed Superbad. Featuring Kirsten Stewart who looks a bit alright. Check the trailers.

Che 2 part movie with Benicio Del Toro as Che Guervara. could be pretty interesting and pretty epic i imagine..


And i am pretty sure that film "killing escobar"(about pablo escobar) i think its called is all cast and i was under the impression it was shooting. i could be wrong. or thinking about a diff project.

Definately keen for all of these. Eastern Europe has been producing some very good films over the last decade at least so the whole 'good for Serbia' call seems a little off.

Plus 'The Road', 'Where the Wild Things Are' and 'Das Weisse Band'

Wow wow wow, and all this shit about Avatar... It is going to fucking suck.
It is written like 'Starship Troopers' but not a satire nor self conscious, the aliens are blue eight foot monsters with ten foot bow and arrows, the humans look like psychdelic rave pseudo hippies circa 1999, and it is some sort of ham fisted attack on American foreign policy. Cringe.

Yeah, fair call. I just can't remember seeing a single Serbian film personally! Any suggestions on good stuff to check out?

'Underground.'
'Black Cat, White Cat.'
'The Trap.' Which is the most recent I know, maybe 2006 or 2007?
'Time of the Gypsies.' Saw this when I was a little younger but always reckoned it was good.
'Pretty Village, Pretty Flame.' Ok, interesting for the fact it was made just following the '95 war. Follows the lives of some Serbian soldiers.

GEE THANKS FOR THE SUBTLE ALLEGORY.

PS, can anyone confirm this means Peter Jackson thinks black people are a different species, possibly alien?

Nah, Sunshine was really good. I don't understand the hate for it. As far as I'm concerned, Danny Boyle has done well with every movie he has made, except maybe A Life Less Ordinary (and I haven't seen The Beach).

I felt the second half was where it was always heading and brought the philosophical aspect and depth into the movie, whereas the first half was more Event Horizon 2 and quite familiar, albeit necessary for the set-up. It wasn't perfect - the "I'll sacrifice myself so you all can live" trick was done at least one time too many - but yeah, it was nice to have a movie that tried to say something a bit deeper and I thought Chris Evans was a bit of a revelation.

Yeah I don't get all the haterade for it eh, totally looking at picking it up on BR when I see a copy around.

Sunshine is the most remarkable and genuine science fiction film since 2001. It relies on feeling, tension, and heart to make it what it is. It's infinitely refreshing, hearkening back to the glory days of the genre with nods to the aforementioned 2001 and perhaps the greatest science fiction/horror film of all time, Alien. Danny Boyle's Sunshine and his previous film 28 Days Later are genuine masterpieces both inside and outside of their respective genres and with these two films he has catapulted into my list of favorite directors. This is a top-notch Blu-ray disc that offers superior image and sound quality. The supplements alone are worth the price of admission, though the lack of 1080p is the only fault I have with them. I cannot stress enough that Sunshine is essential viewing for science fiction fans, and as such it receives my highest recommendation.
