Comming Attractions - Movies I want to see

Charles Dumar  said about 4 years ago  or at  6:40PM on Sunday, May 3 2009 in films

I did a search, couldn't find diddly, so I started this.

I think these are going to be:

Good:

Year One

The Hangover

Where the wild things are

Terminator Salvation

The Brothers Bloom

Bad:

Astro Boy - would have liked to see it with people, not cartoons

Funny People - great cast, but story line looks limiting and Sandler needs to be replaced.

Just my opinion.

Also, I got lazy and my have mixed up the URLs.

Post your picks for good/bad upcomers. I want to hear what's going to be worth my $ at the cinemas.

Some excellent new Australian films are 'comming' out too:

Samson and Delilah - out this week - five stars from both David and Margaret

My Year Without Sex - out 28 May- Sarah Watt's (Look Both Ways) newie, starring Sasha Horler and Matt Day

Lucky Country - out in July, I think - period western directed by Kriv Stenders, starring Aden Young (yum)

Balibo - later in 2009 - written by David Williamson and Robert Connolly, directed by Connolly. Really looking forward to this as I've read a lot about the Balibo Five tragedy (five Australian newsmen killed in East Timor in 1975) and the Australian govt's lack of inaction.

Nice to have some Oz films to get excited about.

a new street fighter movie? how does that shit even happen? i look forward to stumbling across it one sleepless night in 2013.


kazpatafta  said about 4 years ago:

I really wanna see Samson and Delilah, my friend saw a preview screening and was raving.


russiancaravan  said about 4 years ago:

It's fantastic, kaz - one of the best films I've seen in ages.

In other news, I really meant 'Australian gov'ts lack of action' re Balibo. Must be all that crack I've been smoking.


postergirl  said about 4 years ago:

You had crack and you didn't share it with me?!?! For shame!

There is a bunch of Luis Bunuel films being shown this month as part of the Spanish Film Festival.

hey russians ....do you still have an ikea bookcase to get rid of?

i'd PM but my msg's don't seem to be workin'


postergirl  said about 4 years ago:

I got your PM the other day and replied!


The_Tupelo_Flash  said about 4 years ago:

hmm... i didn't get your reply!

dammit


postergirl  said about 4 years ago:

Are your srs? How weird! I'll do a test now. Stand by.


The_Tupelo_Flash  said about 4 years ago:

yup, serious!


russiancaravan  said about 4 years ago:

Hey, Tupes! No, sorry, decided to keep it - it miraculously managed to fit into my new bedroom.

Sorry, poster, clearly crack habit is worse than first thought - note misplaced apostrophe in correction.

commits harakiri


The_Tupelo_Flash  said about 4 years ago:

i've taken to putting books, cd's and records in my kitchen cupboards

which kinda makes sense as i own 2 plates, 4 mugs, 3 glasses, 4 bowls.

LIVIN' LARGE!


postergirl  said about 4 years ago:

Just try to see it as being like the intentional flaw in a perfect Persian carpet … or something.


Charles Dumar  said about 4 years ago:

Postergal - this Wednesday is the ''Danish Masters'' films:

Haxan: Whichcraft through the ages

The Master of the House

I'm hoping for it to be two creepy b+w satanic oogady-boogady type movies. Coffin Joe and all that...


slothman  said about 4 years ago:

Inglorious Basterds, new Tarantino

Anti-Christ, New Von Trier


versionsporadic  said about 4 years ago:

Has anyone seen Dark Shadows? Is it worth seeing?


Arthurly  said about 1 year ago:

I'm curious about that as well^^^

good call on the misspelled threat title GB. ha


woolfat  said about 1 year ago:

it looks terrible. i wish burton would attempt something that looks remotely challenging for him.


Arthurly  said about 1 year ago:

needs less Johnny Depp


hsdfauof  said about 1 year ago:

I don't even have words for that.


hsdfauof  said about 1 year ago:

Sex Magic that is


mule  said about 1 year ago:

i was just bemused when i saw that tim burton trailer, looks like such a pissweak story, i'm sure i'm not being nostalgic when i say children's films in the 90s had a higher standard. these days they just don't have the same oomph, but maybe i'm just being cynical...looking forward to sex magic however.


djbollocks  said about 1 year ago:

The trailer doesn't make it look very good but then I remembered that some other Tim Burton films that had bad trailers (Sweeny Todd, Mars Attacks) turned out to be OK films.


GrantleyBuffalo  said about 1 year ago:

Sleepy Hollow was the last Burton film I actually enjoyed. He obviously needs to team up with Christina Ricci and/or Christopher Walken again.


mushymouth  said about 1 year ago:

I wanna go to the midnight screening of Prometheus - although if it's a bit shit I imagine that will magnify the disappointment.


mushymouth  said about 1 year ago:

Reviewer agrees with you.


woolfat  said about 1 year ago:

GRANTLEY, HEY GRANTLEY
OVER HERE


GrantleyBuffalo  said about 1 year ago:

Cheers, wooly, I did see that... looks like I'll be making the long trek to Carlton in June.

starts preparing survival kit


woolfat  said about 1 year ago:

I will also be making the not-so-long trek to Nova. Fucken excited. The last good horror I saw in a cinema was The Woman. Have you seen that?


GrantleyBuffalo  said about 1 year ago:

No! Thanks for the reminder, it had slipped off my mental ''movies to 'acquire' somehow'' list! :)


woolfat  said about 1 year ago:

it's AWESOME



woolfat  said about 1 year ago:

that's awesome. i'm there.


tugboat  said about 1 year ago:
