Star Wars Director Update (Article) - 11/13/2012 9:31:59 PM

I want Shane Acker and if not then give me the guy that directed the tron movie or the guy that made district 9...

Confirmed Writer For Star Wars (Article) - 11/9/2012 12:00:36 PM

Screw that! Let Shane Acker direct it, he can bring the perfect tone to this movie, a more darker and grittier type of SW , you know, the way the last 3 movies should  been...

Man of Steel in IMAX and 3D (Article) - 11/9/2012 11:50:15 AM

@Lazarus...Why can't we have this as being the story for this particular SM? Is there some basic cookie cutter outline that all must follow when shaping a movie around this story? I don't think so and would not want that to be the case because all we would get is the same old story every single time, wow! how borring that is gang...I for one like the idea of how they decided to partray Supes at this particular time in his life in the story, from what I understand he takes one of those discover yourself by discovering the world type of journies and why not? You  have a man that was raised by two humans on an alien planet, he has super powers and knows he's differenrt so why would he not at some point in his life decide to travel the world and see if allot of the conflicts and answers he has within himself can  in some wya be answered or put to rest? it sounds like they are humanize superman to me...

Lazarus, some of the best writers we have around have discovered the secret to writing and it's simply this, How can you accurately write about something and create real fealings an emotions and have come off as real to the reader? You have to go out and live life and experience new and exciting things, that is how you make your writing come to life, and you can tell the difference between witers who live life and those that live in front of their computer all day wondering why they can't get deals with publishers, I bring this up because I think clarks travels in this story help to shape him into a good writer and in some small way it's one the last pieces of the puzzle that help shape his  views, personally and professionaly so I guess what I am saying is that I can easly buy what they are trying to sale me at this point in the story...Whho knows?

Yates for Tarzan (Article) - 11/8/2012 3:53:42 AM

I'm on board for a new and fresher Tar of the Zan...Get the seriousness of this story injected into the project, the way that Peter Jackson did with LOTR by making it seem as though this really happend to someone, make it dark but not so dark that it drives a wedge between the fine line of good story telling/demographics and atmospheric tones, visuals/ticket sales and then you will have catered to everyone, the fact that they need to sale movie tickets leaves me wondering if it should be a little light hearted  but not to light hearted...     We are dealing with a story that is dark and complex in nature and there are many times through out this story that are a bit adult oriented in theme, this is what excites me about this story, if I was a kid it would be all the jungle animals that have my attention but I'm not a kid so it's not about the animals as much as it is about the story of a lost a forgotten baby who was raised in hostile surroundings and raised to become a wild savage animal in a world unthinkable to most  people that live in what they call civilized and cultured surroundings...

What the hell, the story says it all, just make the damn movie like it's suppose to be made and don't kiddy it all up for the sake of selling a bunch of stuffed animal toys and you can't lose on this one.. Remember If we find ourselves in a  frame of mind that let'sus go on a journey and experience it as though we were there with the characters in the movie, and not simply watching the movie just for enterainment as though we were outside looking in, then you have a recipe that even the Bam master would be envy of, all kinds of bamming going on if done right, right?

Mania Interview: Steven Spielberg (Article) - 11/8/2012 2:34:12 AM

@Jedi4shield...Speaking of Lincoln vampire hunter, I just watched that for the first time last night through On Demand...I had no plans on watching it cause the trailers in all honesty turned me off, so my expectation when watching this was on par up through the first half hour if it, kinda borring to say the least, that was until the first action sequence came up in the movie and then I was hooked for some reason cause in all honesty is was not that great of a movie or well executed in my opinion but every time an action sequence took place it was great to watch, especially the action on the horses...

They took a few liberties with the vampires, changing things around a little, like allowing the vamps to walk in the sunlight during the day, and I did not like that but once again it was the action that caught my attention, but then it was gone again once the borring crap started up...

You can tell that Tim Burton was a producer for that movie, he never changes his style up like a true artist does, always evolving in that particular craft is a huge part of being honest and true and Burton found an artistic style that has become his way of just getting done what needs to be done, it's called co operative lazyness with all those people he works with on every movie, I think he would blow up like a vamp in the sun if he had to think outside of his box, it's to bad too, some of the best musicians, actors, directors and anyone in general who has amazing ideas in this world will never get discovered and never have a chance to show who and what they are about, makes me mad to see guys like Burton getting all advantages but never do they bring much of anything fresh or new to the table, ya he was on his game in the beggining but he got old real quick once it was learned that every thing he does is exactly as it was in the movie before and that would not be all that bad but I feel I have seen every Tim Burton movie even if I had only watched his first two movies alone, of course I have seen just about all of them so I know this guy can't change his style, even as a producer for someone elses movie he still drags along the same concepts and ideas into the creative session and then it shows in the final product like in did in this Lincoln vampire hunter...anyways...

Matthew Vaughn for Star Wars: Episode VII? (Article) - 11/8/2012 1:38:30 AM

Top 5 directors for directing SW as I would interview these guys in this order, the order being the last choice to first choice...

#5 Del Toro would be my fifth choice only because he works on his own stories and projects and would have to be persuaded to do it, someone that loves working on their stuff as much as Mr Toro does would have to be persuaded to come and make these and then some love is lost with the taking care of the material and story since it's not his ideas or themes but if persuaded to do it he would be perfect with the skill sets he has in special effects, could really bring a good balance to the movies with his knowledge and artistic writing skills, making for not only a visually exciting movie but more importantly a well told story...

#4 I would go with Kevin Smith, he is by far one of the biggest geeks out there in movie making land next to Del Toro and he would bring artistic dialog to a movie or movies that should in all likely hood be geared towards us adults now, it is a Dark Story of Evil running rampant and the few good trying to stop it so let's get a director that will cater to us older people, a director that can give us the dark and ominous type of movie we all wanted when Phantom Menace came out but we all decided to love the Matrix instead cause that was what we were suppose to have with SW but never got it...Kevin Smith does not have the apptitude that allot of directors have when dealing with special affects driven movies but that's nothing that can't be cured with a good crew working for you that actually do know what they are doing, just check out the matrix, the Watchowski's had no idea how to develop the special effects in the Matrix, they just knew what they wanted and the special effects supervisor made it possible for them...Kevin Smith, laugh if you want but he can do this...

#3 Joseph Kosinski...The guy that made the last Tron Movie has the chops to make a visually stunning movie and at the same time prove to be a much better writer than Lucas, that part does not seem to be hard to do if you can write for humans that are not in the age range of 5 to 10 years of age, ya the Tron Director would be good...

#2 my second choice would be the director that made that animated movie called 9, Shane Acker...This was one of the first animated movies geared towards adults and for good reason he likes his stories dark, this director/writer knows how to write for adults cause he writes for himself, and what he likes and invisions for the projects he works on benefits us all that like to dwell in a good story that is dark in nature, something that we adults can relate to, something that reflects our times, we don't need  a dark story candy coated by a director in order to sale toys and this director would not sacrifice his theory and philosophy in story telling in order to do so...If you have not watched the movie 9 you should, I think you might agree that this man can do the job right...it also helped that he had Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov as producers on 9 although I am one of those people that feel TIm Burton needs to stay in the dog house until he get's out of his repetative funk and stops using all the same actors and the same themes in every single piece of work he has done, it's old already Mr Burton try something fresh plz although Timur would make a great producer for these movies, of course  his involvement or any other producers involvment is not of importance right now but finding a direcor is...

#1 My number one choice would be the guy that made District 9...He has a visual style that would do well with the SW universe and once again and I know I am repeating myself but he is a good writer and when it's all said and done a good writer/director who knows how to get the best performance out of his actors is what SW needs right now, some good wrting to help us all forget about the terrible dialog that Lucas made us sit through with the last three movies he made would be an awesome thing to witness then I don't have to feel as though I lose IQ everytime I watch a Lucas made movie...

These guys would be my picks and I know there are allot of guys out there that some of you would like to see do this but the good directors seem to be far to involved in working on their own stuff, I don't think their egos will allow them to do anything other than work on stuff they have developed and created so we are looking for mid level ter guys or guys that are up and coming, don't expect Ridley Scott or James Cameron do want to do this, won't happen, You can't blame these high level directors, who wants to work on something that was not created by them in an industry that asks people of the business to CREATE and Develop new and exciting ideas? I would not want to do that but would do it if it meant bringing my work to a larger stage with the possibilty of getting more work for a up and coming director trying to gain leverage with the studios and of course to get that 7 movie deal contract that will help them bring in that pay check to pay for all those late night coke and whore parties, at least this is what I heard happens when Terrintino goes to Las Vegas to write, he seems to have work and fun all rolled into one package, damn I wish I had half his writing talent, his life sounds fun LOL

Rambling session done for now, will ramble again soon so that way you all can ask yourselfs, what the hell is that guy talking about ;)

Mania Interview: Steven Spielberg (Article) - 11/8/2012 12:01:00 AM

Wise, where do you hold mass brother, so I can come and pay my respect to the master of cinema with you? A religion that Al Sharpton would even sign off on lol I'm thinking or maybe not, anyways...

I don't know why I am surprised by the interviews you guys have had here lately, would expect that from cinescape but not mania, very cool to say the least though...

I am a bit surprised though that Spielberg sat down with you guys then again I should not be, you guys use to interview everyone under the sun that had anything to do with movies, Sci Fi and Fantasy to be specific but this is very cool indeed and loved the questions you asked him...

It's a good thing Daniel Day Lewis decided to do this cause the only person I know that can make a movie of this certain nature and topic and have it be done in a way that treats the material and story with a certain amount of respect and love for the main character can only come from Spielberg and if his thought was not to make it if Mr Lewis dicided not to do it, would have been tragic and even more tragic had some other director dicided to make it themselves, as it turns out we get a Mr Lewis and Mr Spielberg movie, go figure ha, one of the greatest directors of our time and one of the greatest actors if not the greatest actor of all time making a movie together and I can't think of a better project for them both to work on...

Great Interview Rob, keep em coming

Would like to see an in depth interview with Ridley Scott if you get the chance, that would be awesome to say the least....

Awesome movie is all I can say

 

Woodley for Spider-Man 2 (Article) - 10/11/2012 1:03:12 AM

Actually I will concede to some of you that this last Spidey was not that great of story, I believe that to be true only because there were times the story just slowed down way to much for allot of un-necessary sub plots, dialog that served no real purpose to driving the story forward and a few other things but over all, I thought it was a good start to this new franchise but that's because I have decided to not let Raimi's well done, no awesome job on his origin story over shadow this one, damn how can you even hope to come close to Raimi's version, that is a mountain of expectation far to high to climb for any director if you ask me...

In closing, this new Spidey was not terrible unless you are one of those guys who knows everything about the Amazing Spider Man and has to nit pick about every small detail that was either left out or made up just for movie making sake, or your one of those guys who has to point out that the movie could have been edited a little bit better, making for more action and less borring parts and shit, you may be right about that but I myself liked it and I'm confidant that the next one will be even better, of course it all comes down to a matter of opinion and we all have our opinions so go ahead protest yours as to just how wrong I am, you won't hurt my feelings lol
