Movies Still Unseen

The Fountain
This looks creative and lovingly rendered. Casting somewhat suspect, but at least they were willing to pony up for star power, which means they probably threw money at refining the script and getting the vfx just right too.

Pan's Labyrinth
Guillermo del Toro rocks my world. The only way this trailer could make me more excited is if Brian Froude was attached for creature design.

Bridge to Terabithia

And lastly this one, which I find hillarious. They apparently took one of my favorite childhood books and turned it into the 8th book of Narnia. As this book is one of the few that makes me cry everytime I read it, I wonder if I should be offended at this Disney version of the movie? Nope, cuz books are for losers. This movie is going to rock!

The Fountain - more plastic Hollywood crap fronted by Hugh "Everyman" Jackman, who only the most commercial of commercialists could like. Of course people will come out in droves to see his special brand of smirking shlock, but I have more important things to do. Like watch football.

Pan's Labyrinth - will be another horrible takeoff on an otherwise-brilliant work of fantasy by an intelligent and snappily-dressed author. Oh that we as a race could make just one half-decent adaptation of what is easily considered one of the most well-crafted scripts in all of literature.

Bridge to Terabithia - looks to be the worst movie ever made.

I'm actually going to see all three of these potential gems. With or without you. With or wiiith-out-chu-ah-haaah.

Gotta get through "8 Films To Die For" first. Wish me luck so I don't crap my pants.

We should make "Pan's Labyrinth" a group outing because it's got whimsy, charm, and a dash of spooky. Got high hopes for this one.

hey soapy, avoid Penny Dreadful. definitely not one of the stronger 8 films to die for. the gravedancers has a high enjoyment factor, though.

"cuz books are for losers"
Where do you get that? with books all the acting is prefect, as are the special effects and the casting. Movies tend to spend all there money on stars and special effects instead of on writing which is where they should spend it.

Yeah, the acting is prefect. Just like your speling. Bithc.

I'm assuming that "Pan's Labyrinth" is "El laberinto del fauno", which I saw on Thursday. Spotty at best, despite some good actors and interesting creatures. Interesting setting just post Civil War (the Spanish one, that is).
