This is what Cameron's been hyping up?

Meh. The CGI's far from photoreal, the character designs are too silly to really take as anything other than children's entertainment (it looks straight out of...

Meh.

I love Sallah, but I'm not interested in seeing a lot of returning faces. The more than can keep Indy away from the "Indiana Jones family," the better.

I'm very intrigued by the suggestion that INDY V could play up a kind of Hammer Horror vibe, and would be interested what relics could fit in with that. It would be very interesting to see a reversal...

I do think a Hammer Horror angle would be a fine route for INDY V to take. It definitely fits, and could be really effective it done properly.

I finally got ahold of the issues from this series. Honestly, I found it a bit disappointing. I disliked the amount of "wink, wink" moments to Indy fans (I always find those kind of distracting), and...

The top two cinematic achievements in the genre are OLDBOY, THE DARK KNIGHT and WATCHMEN. Everything else really pales in comparison.

Unless they do a non-literal adaptation, which is what I think is called for here. Take some of the core ideas of IT and turn it into its own cinematic entity.

Why on earth would you say that?

Look at the jump between BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT. Three years, just like the suggested 2008-2011 jump between THE DARK KNIGHT and BATMAN 3. And they both...

Yeah. We'll see how many of them are actually good.


Nah, 'cause BATMAN 3 is 2011, not 2012.

WATCHMEN's opening is nothing to sneeze at, but far more worrying is the sharp downward trend in ticket sales as the weekend progressed. It indicates that WATCHMEN's not going to have terribly long...

I love WATCHMEN, but I believe Moore's FROM HELL is truly his masterpiece. It's an extraordinarily rich work, and in many ways a more impressive accomplishment than WATCHMEN.

Though those of you who...

As far as true film noir is concerned, it has to be SUNSET BOULEVARD.

As far as neo-noir is concerned, it's definitely Polanski's CHINATOWN, with a nod to Godard's BREATHLESS and Scorcese's TAXI...

I do. I don't think THE DARK KNIGHT was a masterpiece of any kind (though it did have some astonishing aspects), but SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE was a real mess of a film.
