"Voltron script review" , posted Mon 2 Jul 04:18post reply

Link Here

From the same guy who wrote the Street Fighter screen play.

I can't say I am digging ANY of that thing. I admit that Voltron wasn't a masterpiece in storytelling and was really fluffy, but the guy is trying too damn hard to make this thing "hardcore."

Apparently this guy is also writing a Masters of the Universe script.

So at the very least, the mentor really is Gen instead of some new made-up character, then? Well, that's an improvement.

I find the statement "He is respectful of the source material" amusing after reading the synopsis, ha ha ha. Who or what are the "Drules", I thought they were the Galra? Aren't the drules from.. some other show? Or were they (the drules) only in "Voltron"? I'm wagering Daibarzal and Sincline aren't in it. It just seems like a standard Hollywood "let's make this HARD CORE and RUIN what made it appealing and entertaining in the first place!" adaption.

The Drule Empire is a Voltron thing, yeah. I think it was a 'second season' thing or whatever, because I wasn't all into Voltron after they showed the one with Voltron fighting the giant King Zarkon (I understand he was supposed to die in that battle but of course the cartoon said he escaped, which is why I wasn't surprised he showed up in The Third Dimension).





I found Kagami's sword in a junk yard.

"the VanDamme Street Fighter wasn't THAT bad.." , posted Tue 3 Jul 09:00post reply

I really hate everyone knocking the original SF movie when talking about this proposed new one, as if Van Damme's Street Fighter raped and murdered a flock of puppies in front of a group of drowning orphans while "Chun-Li based SF movie" is the second coming of Christ that will save SF from being really shitty lately.

the VanDamme SF is campy fun, if you can get over your geek-rage long enough to accept maybe Ryu and Ken would be street hustlers and Sagat is an arms dealer or whatever (and it does take a lot of effort) it's a pretty silly fun movie, and I'm sure a lot of the silliness is intentional (and seriously doubt someone wrote it thinking it was a hardboiled war epic and not a goofy 'cartoon adaptation' which would explain the 'stealth boat')... it's not worth OWNING or RENTING sure, but if its on basic cable and you're bored it's not a bad use of 2 hours.


... that said, I have lower hopes for "Chun-Li SF" since I don't want to see someone try to make "Kill Bill.... with Street Fighters!" and it sounds like that's what it's going to be. And what tone is this movie going to have? If it's campy, won't it be as "bad" as VanDamme's? If it's serious, won't it be even worse since it takes the idea of a woman fighting a clawed psychopath and giant boxer to kill a grown man in a cape seriously?

And if Chun-Li is played by a non-asian, does that mean we can offically stop saying in previews "This has nothing to do with the Van Damme CRAP from a few years ago..." since it's obviously not aspering to be BETTER then that.

"Re:the VanDamme Street Fighter was THAT bad" , posted Tue 3 Jul 11:13:post reply

Although it's funny. I DO own it, I delight in bad films I can laugh at. I consider it to be in the same vein as films like "Ninja Terminator". I don't see how anyone could act like the new movie is going to be "superior", or that it has "more respect for the source materials", which seems to be a buzzword for all of these gawdawful new Hollywood "re-imaginings" of classic licenses. It sounds like more of the same, except it will probably be much less amusing.. something like "Ultraviolet", which was just an offense to every sense. Or the DOA movie, which verged on being so bad I couldn't watch it (Only a few other movies have ever earned the award of "unwatchable" from me... "The Girl and the Geek" comes to mind.)

Seriously?? Because I think the SF Van Damme movie is really bad. And I don't mean it's just a bad adaptation; if you get someone who has no idea about what's Street Fighter and shows him/her this movie as just a regular martial arts movie, s/he will most likely consider it an awful movie as well. Raul Julia and Ming-Na had some decent acting (decent, not good), and that's all the good points about the movie. Van Damme was just ridiculous, the story was non-existant, and the special effects... really bad.

About Chun-Li's movie, yeah, its script doesn't look very promising, either. Maybe it can be a decent movie (maybe even a good movie, although it is VERY unlikely), but the adaptation of the game story is just as bad. And the idea of Jessica Biel as Chun-Li is just as bad, even though she's really hot and is not a bad actress (but not really good, as well).

But I'm waiting for the first REAL information about the movie and footage of it before making a final judgement.

You mean, like that stupid "Way of the Warrior"-like game with that really weird game actor impersonating Akuma, and Kylie Minogue (still can't believe she went that low in her career; fortunately she's redeemed herself after 2001) wearing that embarrassing green swimming suit?? Actually, I never understood why they made her wear a different outfit than the movie one; same with Sagat, Dee Jay and that stupid shirtless Sawada. Oh, and let's not forget Blade (a.k.a. Gunloc from Saturday-Night Slam Masters) and his robot clones...

Nah, we're better without another SF The Movie game...

I can't convince you it's not terrible, but seriously I think it's funny.

It's a "bad movie" to be sure, but it's not "painfully bad" it's "funny bad"... it's obvious it was supposed to be funny (the Stealth boat, Bison's dialog and room decore, Guile's speach and the lone cook sitting their afterwards, the 'Sumo torture' scene... none of these would exist if it wasn't intentially funny)

Maybe if it had not been SF and a more obvious GI Joe parody (which I kinda see it as, I bet Hasbro had a hand in the direction the movie took to promote their SF Joes at the time) like called "Jean Claude VanDamme in 'G.I. OH-NOS!!!'" or something it'd be accepted as a campy classic, miscalculated on many levels but not a utter unwatchable failure, instead of being ignored by it's target fans because "It's not about Ryu, Blanka is not Charlie, and there's no kung-fu or fireballs!!!"

I kind of feel the same way. The movie was clearly 100% camp. VanDamn, Julia, & Ming needed a paycheck, took it for what it was and had fun with it. Hamming all the way like kids playing dress up at a con. They're good actors that can act (even VanDamn), but this movie didn't really call for "acting". In a perfect world we'd have a concept as well realized as the Spiderman films are.

I remember a long time ago in an interview Julia did, he mentioned how much fun he had playing extravogant nut job Bison. Before SF & Addams he did mostly serious stuff or was always bad guy drug dealer.

Well, SF The Movie wasn't ignored just by the SF fans, but by the general audience as well. IMO, the lack of fireballs is a good thing (it would be too unrealistic), Ryu doesn't have to be the main character just because it's a SF movie, and about the Blanka/Nash confusion, Nash wasn't established as a different character back then, was he?

The main problem, IMO, is that none of the characters has anything to do with their game counterparts. Well, that and the fact that the script is garbage. I mean, even that SF scene in Jackie Chan's "City Hunter" was a better adaptation...

Well, Raul Julia was a great actor, and Ming-Na has some good actings in her career. But Van Damme?? I don't think so...

And... didn't Raul Julia die even before the movie was released??

A movie that, ironically, was intensely reviled by City Hunter fans all over the world.

They should have had an awesome City Hunter reference in the Street Fighter movie to balance out the universe.

Alvin and the Chipmunks

Wow, I didn't see that coming. I wonder if the Chipmunks will be human sized or regular chipmunk size.

Apparently they will have the same voice actors so I guess that is . . . good. I wonder if this will be like the 80's toon and they will just cover a bunch of songs or we will get treated to a bunch of kid friendly rapping, which has been a scourge on this world for nearly two decades.

"Simpsons movie thoughts" , posted Sat 28 Jul 10:26post reply



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
Just got back from "The Simpsons Movie" and I am disappointed. There really wasn't anything new. Springfield has been in danger before, Homer has been kicked out before, so on and so forth.

I think this is indicative of the "new" Simpsons, yes, I am one of those people who like the older Simpsons over the newer. This movie was too Homer centric and I think that is what hurt it the most. If the movie was focused on Bart and the school kids they might have done something more interesting

I got to see the Alvin and the Chipmunks trailer as well and it looked kind of promising until the scat scene.

I'm gonna agree with that... it doesn't look like it'll be *that* horrible a movie. Probably not worth a viewing but doesn't look like it's gonna rape any childhood memories either (well, except for the shit eatting, but that might excuse able if they act like Chipmunks the whole movie and aren't going to human school and what not)

... I will however not agree with your Simpson's review that if it had been about Bart it'd have been more interesting.

Homer's just a more logical main character when you consider the Simpson's target demographic (adults who grew up with the show: ones who should act like mature adults but still have a little too much kid in them like Homer.) It's easier for this demo to relate to Homer then Bart, Homer's stories present a moral the audience can use today (love your family more then yourself, they respect you so need to respect them. The world's no longer all about you, you have to serve the comunial good now) then stories about Bart where the lessons are ones they've out grown (do good in school and behave and you can succeed! Do bad and you'll only have yourself to blame when you're held back)... out of curiosity, what makes you think a Bart centeric story would have been better? Like do you have an idea for an exact story or just the notion 'Camp Krusty' or 'Lord of the Flies type episode I forgot the title of' would have been interesting in film form?

I do agree the movie doesn't offer anything new aside from fancy pants animation (which looks super slick) and really it seem with 3 small cuts


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
Bart's unessessary wiener exposure, Homer's double birdflipping, and Marge putting the "God" before the "Damn"

End of Spoiler


It could have been a 3 part TV episode... but it's MUCH funnier then recent episodes have been, it feels like a middle of the road Oakley-Weinstein era episode (family centeric view point of the early seasons that dominated the early episodes, but a little illogical wackiness that has come to ruin the show these days) which is all good in my book.

Although, having seen it I think watching it on DVD would have been just as good... plus that's gonna have a crap ton of deleted extras.

I thought that a plot around the Bart and the kids would been better as they haven't done anything big around them in a while. Like I said before, very little from the movie was really original. Sure there have been kid centric episodes like "Kamp Krusty" in the past, but a lot of the school kids have gone by the wayside so it would have seemed more fresh. Homer has become silly enough that he could fit into any plot they could make up since he is pretty much all slapstick and rudeness now.

Maybe it wouldn't really have to be about Bart and the kids, but a movie that utilized the supporting casts of the show might have been better. Bart didn't play a big part in the main plot of the movie and was mostly relegated to the Flander's sub-plot.

Hell, they could have done a Halloween of Horror movie that way they could have Kang and Kodos.

Many of the best episodes were based around the supporting casts and how they bring new antics to the Simpson's lives. It seemed weird that of all the secondary characters outside of Flanders to get a significant amount of screen time it was Comic Book Guy.

"Rush Hour 3 review" , posted Fri 17 Aug 03:23post reply

6/10

My least favorite of the Rush Hour movies. Action seemed toned down compared to previous Rush Hour movies.

Jackie Chan can still do some cool stuff(check out New Police Story if you haven't yet), but the action sequences need to be better choreographed and set in locations that aren't too over the top. Even in his heyday, Chan probably wouldn't have done something as dangerous as fight over the real Eiffel Tower, but the blatantly obvious special effects really takes you out of the scene and you don't get the feeling of danger or authenticity as a regular Jackie Chan action sequence.

Comedy was probably on a similar level as the previous movies. I liked the duet between Chan and Tucker in the gentleman's club the most.

Story seemed to be as garbled as X3. Hopefully this kind of film making doesn't follow every Ratner movie from now on. The resolution seemed just as rushed in Rush Hour 3 as in X3. There was an opportunity there for one more chase or something.

Ah! She's certainly a step up from Holmes, but still, i just didn't like the character, not the actress. Which makes me hope that they'll have the Joker kill her off in order to give Batman a real vendetta against the Joker.

It'll probably climax into one of the those "he's pushed Batman over the edge! Now Batman's going to KILL him!" moments. You know, where Batman never actually kills anyone.

Then again, he didn't seem to have a problem killing all those ninja and Raj Al Ghul in the first movie.

Nooooo...! This man should be prohibited to direct any other movie after the awful job he did with Doom. (Romeo Must Die was kinda nice, though - but Doom is just awful)

Steven Seagal as M.Bison? The bad side of it is that a tree can act better than him. The good side is that we'd finally see someone kicking Seagal's butt...

Still, the good side is not good enough to hire Seagal for this movie.

I have to say that if any Sci-Fi anime has the potential for being turned into a decent live action movie that it's Robotech/Macross.

Gekiganger, I heard the new Macross was actually really pretty solid. I always meant to watch the original, supposedly magnificent stuff. Or was it Macross Plus I was supposed to see? Maybe that was the one...

I can't figure out who these Hollywood or English-language game movies are for. They obviously don't care about the original games' audience given how condescendingly stupid and poorly directed they inevitably are, but do other people like them? Did they expect anyone besides gamers to bother with the original Street Fighter movie, or the next one for that matter?

Well, the only thing I can come up with is that their plan is basically to trick enough stupid low-level fans of the games and dumb non-fans into seeing the movie to make a little money and then they can laugh all the way to the bank. And I'm sure they can rake in a little extra off of "there's nothing else I want to see" people as well.

Anyone else will know to avoid the Alone in the Darks and the Doom movies out there.

True but the thing that irritates me is when people say "the plot is nothing like the game!" if the game had little plot to begin with (i.e Mario)

People talk trash on the Van Damm SF movie because it is nothing like the game which is true, but the Japanese animated movie from the mid 90s deviated as well. I don't recall anything in the text of the endings for SF2 that Bison wanted to capture Ryu and make him a slave for instance. But the movie was good just because the writing was better, was not overly cheesy and of course stylized animation.

"Superman: Doomsday thoughts" , posted Wed 19 Sep 12:51:post reply

I just bought the DVD and I thought I would try and get a discussion started on it since I think there are some fans here of the DC animated stuff.



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
Overall I was disappointed. Other than the fight scenes, nothing in the movie appealed to me. I really loved the DC animated series stuff, but I couldn't get into this and I know this is a different 'universe' where all that pre-established stuff doesn't apply, but the story telling style seemed completely different.

The title is misleading as Doomsday is only the first act and kind of thrown in and kicked out of the movie. The rest of the movie involves Superman's comeback which also involves a nefarious Lex Luthor plot.

I was following 'New Frontier' more than 'Doomsday' and from the looks of New Frontier they were trying to follow the comic very closely so I was expecting something like that for Doomsday as well.

I know that there would have been some stuff they would have had to cut to save time and some of it isn't really relevant such as clone Lex Luthor. But certain elements of the story were essential such as the use of the Justice League to show that Superman was the last chance against Doomsday and the way they handled the revelation of Clark's secret identity was more poignant to the story.

This movie was okay compared to some of the other stuff out there and has some great voice acting(especially the person who played Lois), but this film isn't in the same league as 'Mask of the Phantasm' or 'Return of the Joker.' It definitely had some hardcore deaths, but the plot didn't seem complete.

Hopefully 'New Frontier' turns out a lot better.

I'm a fan of these animated works so I saw it.



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -

It was okay. I'm not familiar with the source material, but for a long while at the beginning the acting and writing felt incredibly forced and uninspired. It wasn't really until after the Doomsday battle that everything started to flow a bit more evenly.

It was weird hearing new voice actors for all the main characters. I know it's a different world from those other versions but even so, it kind of took me out of it for a while trying to adjust to the new voices after 100's of episodes with the old cast. Superman and Luthor were pretty good, and Lois had some great scenes but her voice still sounded like she was tripping over her own tongue. Oh well.

The first act was subpar, the second act was a lot better but still kind of gamey. Put them together and I'd say it was slightly below average as these things go. About the level of that forgettable Batwoman movie they did years ago.

I thought it was kind of subpar. The strongest act was in the middle. They changed a lot from the comics for what seems just for the sake of simplifying things for a movie. And looses what made it interesting other than the death. Something like the death and return of Superman could have been written into a 3rd of a Justice League season.

Also it was kind of lame to put in that Goku moment. "almost there guys! I'm not done training/recovery/escaped yet to save you all!"

They did do a version of 'Death and Return of Superman' in Justice League... it might have been second season though. OH WAIT! I forgot the internet has a Super-Nerd Resource Center!

Season 2, "Hereafter":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hereafter_%28Justice_League%29

That covers the 'world in mourning and Lobo in place of Erradactor/Cyborg Superman showing Superman was made up of more then just suprpowers'

and if you want to see Supes fight Doomsday he does that a couple times in Season 3. At least ones mimicing the 'when they punch each other the impact shatters the windows of surrounding bulidings' I believe.

Maybe, At least Street Fighter was so bad it was funny and SF fans had the alternative of an OK anime movie. Now Tekken fans are stuck with a shitty movie and a shitty anime.

IMDB and several other sites has reported that there is a Metal <dramatic pause> Gear Solid movie in the works. Hollywood is somehow involved and so are some American actors.

I just found out about this today. Another video game movie that I will not be watching.

Happy Veterans Day everyone.

How can you say that even before a director, cast, etc. hasn't been announced? Of all the game movies that are going to happen, this one is the only one that I think it can turn out to be great, and easyly be faithful to the source material.

Silent Hill also had everything great going for it, they even managed to get a halfway decent director and a supposedly great scriptwriter and according to interviews they "respected" the source and said videogames could be art etc... but the movie was crap.

Most movies aren't very good to begin with. Then there are videogame movies, which have all been bad. So it's easy to assume that the Metal Gear movie will be bad.

I just don't see a point in making a Metal Gear movie. The games tell the story exactly as it should be told, a movie would just water things down. It'd be like making a videogame out of Citzen Cane or Rashamon or some other classic. It COULD be interesting, but why bother unless you honestly have something interesting to add to the mix.

Of course Hollywood will place its' own twist on it.

Speaking of which Wanted based on the same mini-series by Mark Millar & J. G. Jones, released by Top Cow/Image, as told to me by one of my co-workers, saw the preview of this movie trailer when he went to watch American Gangsters. He states the preview looks pretty good even though he has not seen nor read the source material.

Adapting anything into a movie -be it a novel, play, real life event or what have you- is fraught with all sorts of difficulties. With video games I think the problem is that it's the interactive element of the experience, rather than the plot, that is the main draw. For example, with Resident Evil it's not that the search for the rusty key is such a gripping narrative that it draws people to the series. Rather, it's the immersion the player experiences while trying to guide their avatar through the survival horror experience that makes people want to play the games. It's no wonder that film makers don't really seem to know what to do with game adaptations; the primary draw of games isn't available in the passive medium of movies.

Also, thanks to this tread I now want to play a Citizen Kane FPS. You're going down Joseph Cotten!

True, making action games out of action movies is far too obvious and dull. While in the music genre I think that Le Cercle Rouge and Donzoko/The Lower Depths would both make swell dance games. You could even combine them to make the mash-up The Red Ring Dance Machine: The Mifune Mix.

I suspect Roger Ebert has a shallow grave in his backyard that he can go roll over in when topics like this get discussed.

I haven't heard of Justin Chatwin, but apparently he was on the pilot to "Smallville" so I have saw him years ago.

Stephen Chow is producing and I hope he has a good amount of input.

The idea that a US live action DBZ movie is actually being made still boggles my mind. That I might be able to go see it in less than a year... man, I'm going to need some time to get used to that one.

"Movie adaption of Shamo manga" , posted Thu 15 Nov 03:58:post reply

The DBZ movie, it kinda boggles my mind too, but on the other hand, I can't wait to go to the theathers to watch it with my friends, I want to laugh off of it as much as I can! Then again, I will walk out really sad if it's somehow decent and credible, but what are the chances that'll happen?

Edit: Shamo movie adaption trailer! It's looking great! Fans of the original manga now have something to look forward to. I was fucked because they ceased to publish the manga in my country at volume 13, just when it was on the most interesting part!

Don't worry, the movie is pretty much guaranteed to suck:

Dragon Ball Live in Yellow Face !


Also, thanks for the Chamo link. I just started getting into that Manga. If the movie is half as good as the manga it will kick ass.

"Bender's Big Score" , posted Tue 4 Dec 13:47post reply

Got the return of Futurama on DVD over the weekend at watched over it once.



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
Overall pretty good, but kind of more on the serious side that comedy. Like 'Superman: Doomsday', the title is kind of misleading as Bender's theft, is kind of minor compared to the overall storyline. However, I am glad this movie didn't end up being centered around bender. I liked it better than The Simpsons movie even if the comedy was kind of toned down(it could of used a bit more Zoidberg just for the sake of it). This film flows kind of slow here and there, but it is complete and tries to do something different with the Leela/Fry relationship. I didn't really like the scammer villains too much, I hope this is the last time they show up.

Hmmmm just got the movie and I agree with your sentiments.



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
The Scammers were terrible bad guys. They just weren't very funny or interesting, just annoying. The movie really picks up towards the middle though, and now that they got all the requisite cameos and references out of the way, i hope they can concentrate on a good story in future movies.

Also, did you think it was weird that they kept joking about being cancelled 2 years ago? Hasn't it been like ... 5 years at least? How long were these movies secretly in production?

Just watched the HD trailer, and I really want to see this movie now. Visually ridiculous. I was a big Speed Racer fan when I was younger so I can't imagine me not wanting to see it at all, but the art direction has me intrigued and I otherwise might not have cared quite so much.

I want to know how you think Spy Kids + Hot Wheels + Speed Racer is a bad thing or at least bad enough you'd describe it as why you're unsure of the movie. (And hey! Didn't Mattel get rights to Speed Racer toys?! I bet that means they're gonna go a Cars style "every goddamn car with every goddamn paint opt" line for the movie! So the toy line will actuall be Hot Wheels + Speed Racer!!!)

Anyway I just watched the trailer and this movie looks pretty f'ing badass. I wanted to see it based on the early reports of "John Goodman is Pops Racer and ChimChim is a real monkey" but the trailer was all like "oh and the rest of the movie is pretty much just as awesome as that concept..."

After watching the trailer, I am starting to warm up to it. At first glance I was not too attracted to similarity to the overly colorful worlds of Spy Kids 3D and Shark boy and Lava Girl. They seem to pull it off here though.

Hahahah, or I read something about the first one being the book, and the second being a movie to bridge the two books, presumably based on Lord of the Rings' appendixes. Then again, they run the risk of having the second work be a really boring-ass movie. APPENDIX: THE MOVIE.
