Movies

Life has been pretty boring lately, except for twenty minutes of today, so I thought that I would mention some movies that are coming out soon that I will probably have to see.

First, Spiderman 3. Does there really have to be a reason to want to watch this movie? I don't think so. Still, I will give one. THEY BRING IN VENOM. Probably one of the best villians I have seen in the comic books, and it looks like they are going to do him justice. Love it, can't wait till next summer.

Second, The Science of Sleep. This movie is here mainly b/c of I don't know. Watch the trailer and decide for yourself. It looks intriguing, and just a quite a bit "novel."

Third, Renaissance. I have always been a fan of black and white. Pictures and movies always seem to strike a deeper chord when monochrome. Lately, there have been all too few. The first foray into the black and white animation for movies movie, was "Sin City." Based on the comic novels of Frank Miller, it had the look and feel of the comic, while still in movie "setting." Renaissance on the other hand seems more like a comic come to life. The storyline itself looks intriguing, but the animation of it is what makes it stand out. Very cool.

Fourth, Crossing the Bridge. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE music. Any music. It doesn't matter genre or style, I will find at least one song that I really like. A movie about music, foreign music? Rock on.

Fifth, Call me a sucker for punishment, but I will see this movie. Probably not in the main theater, but when it hits the cheap seats, only b/c it will never be able to stand up to the original.

Sixth, The Fountain. I have been jonesing for this movie since I first saw the preview in 2004.

Seventh, 300. There are no previews, only video journals of the making of the movie. Based on the comic of Frank Miller as well, this is about the Battle of Thermopolye. Always been a fan of that brawl, can't wait to see how it is done for the Silver Screen. Alright, that is enough of your night spent going from link to link, so I will bid "Adieu."

Okay, first, I am intrigued by a couple of movies. Crossing the Bridge is the first. Looks really interesting.

Second, Dave Harland loaned me "300", what a really cool comic, this is one of my all time favorite stories, I didn't even know it was being made.

Third, I balled like a baby when I saw the original "Charlottes Web" with my cousin at the theatre. I still get a bit choked up when I watch it. Yeah, I'm gonna go see it, probably get choked up.... crap.

have you ever seen Pi (www.pithemovie.com)? All black&white, very strange, but I liked it in a way.
