Dunst talking about "Spider-Man 4" again (Article) - 4/25/2007 3:32:44 AM

Oh come on. First you all bitch because she says the Spidey movies need to take a break. Now you're bitching because she says they'll happen. Or because she dares not to want to be typecast in this one role. Or because she'd never go out with you in a million years. Truth is, if you met her face to face you'd all start stammering and sweating and look down at your shoes. Ha! As far as more Spidey movies go...I dunno. Just because Sony wants to run this franchise into the ground, doesn't mean the major players need to stay on board while it happens. Keeping things creative enough to have big audiences coming back for more will be tough. Eventually, a sense of "we've seen that already" sets in, and then you have to reboot the franchise.

Cate Blanchett joins "Indiana Jones 4" (Article) - 3/16/2007 12:46:07 PM

I'm puzzled. Seems people are excited about Indiana Jones because they're expecting to see a film like The Last Crusade. Folks, Harrison Ford has gotten older since then. Did anybody see "Firewall"? Probably not, but that just proves my point. "Grandpa Indy" _is_ what we'll get. And with Lucas involved, we'll some version of Jar Jar, too.

Kirsten Dunst says "Spider-Man" needs a break (Article) - 3/16/2007 12:38:53 PM

Wow. A pretty actress says some smart things and it sends some of you less enlightened fanboys into a fit. People, she's got it exactly right. As much as you might like to _SEE_ Spider-Man movies every couple years, you might feel a lot differently if the quality wasn't there. And for those of you who say coming up with great sequels shouldn't be a problem, I just want to ask how many blockbuster films have you made? You talk much, but know nothing. For all we know, this third film could show the strains of sequelitis, just like Return of the Jedi did. Better to put the franchise in hiatus for a little while, lest we get the Spider-Man version of The Phantom Menace.

Tobey Maguire done with "Spider-Man"? (Article) - 3/6/2007 3:23:38 PM

Somebody mentioned the Harry Potter series as four great movies so far. In my opinion, that first movie has no right to be considered as a great film. Actually, neither of the two Chris Columbus directed ones do. We really didn't get treated to just how magical Harry's world could be until the more recent movies.

Tobey Maguire done with "Spider-Man"? (Article) - 3/6/2007 9:59:30 AM

C'mon, I don't get some of you people who say they should just keep "pumping them out" like they're widgets on the assembly line. Name me any movie series that had four great movies in a row. I can't think of a single one. And if anybody mentions the Police Academy series, then you need to have your head examined. As for the reasoning "they can make comics for years and years and years, why can't they make films the same way?" well, they also made a lot of crappy comics over the years, too. Clone Saga, anyone? It's easier to come back from a crappy comic book plotline than it is from an ultra-expensive movie. I'd be mad at Tobey if he bailed on the franchise after one or two movies, too, like Michael Keaton or Val Kilmer with the old Batman series, but he did three, and he says they've wrapped most of the story threads started in the first movie with this one. You can only go so far before lack of creativity sets in. Think how Return of the Jedi is the weakest of the original three Star Wars films, and how the prequels all blow thereafter. Think the Matrix trilogy. Think the Alien movies. I'd rather they quit at three good Spider-Man movies (assuming this last one is good) than keep going until Spider-Man joins the Alien Vs. Predator film series.

Tobey Maguire done with "Spider-Man"? (Article) - 3/5/2007 3:19:20 PM

No way, KJ. I say Tobey should get out while the getting's good. Right now, he's still a respected star. If he stays with the franchise until Schumacher comes on board and adds nipples and butt cleavage to the suit, he'll become more tired than Tom Cruise.
