lol, leave it to hollywood to cast one of the whitest people in the world to play the title role in the PRINCE OF ******* PERSIA
I got a better one for you:
Akira is expected to be developed into two live action films with the first scheduled for a summer 2009 release. Warner Bros. and Appian Way will adapt the two movies from the manga. The first film is expected to be an adaptation of the first three volumes. The second film may cover the last three volumes. Ruairi Robinson is directing in his feature film debut. He was nominated for a short film Oscar in 2002 for Fifty Percent Grey. Gary Whitta is writing the script. Andrew Lazar, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Davisson will produce the film. The film is set in New Manhattan, a city rebuilt by Japanese money after being destroyed 31 years ago. No announcement has been made regarding the cast, although it is reported that DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing the lead roles of Kaneda and Tetsuo, respectively.
I have been watching movies left, right and center lately. Just finished downloading Southland Tales, actually really looking forward to wathcing it. I loved Donnie Darko and while I have heard ST isnt nearly as coherent (if you could call Darko coherent), I still feel it is worth a watch.
And earlier today I watched one of my all time faves, Matchstick Men. It isnt a hugely popular movie, but Sam Rockwell is one of my favourite actors and I personally feel that Roy Waller may have been Nick Cage's strongest performance. Hes very good. Not to mention a great twist. An overall great movie that I really really love
Without a doubt I would say Cage is much better in Leaving Las Vegas. To me that is one of the top ten greatest performances of all time. As for Southland Tales I hope you enjoy. If people though Donnie Darko was hard to follow Southland Tales is at least a thousand times harder. If nothing else I found it a very interesting film that at least kept me entertained.
After Donnie Darko I am interested in anything and everything Richard Kelly directs, whether it be good or bad. I actually thought the cast was very interesting. There were many people I recognized from older movies that I have not seen in a while like the midget lady from Poltergeist. Like I said before, by no means is it a great movie and I don't even know if I would call it good but at the same time I found it very watchable simply because it was so out there.
What's everyones take on There Will Be Blood. Bought it a few days ago but didn't watch it yet because of NCAA 09. Is it good?
I loved it, it's 3rd on my favorite movies list.
I wouldn't say it's slow until the end... just the first 45 minutes are relatively slow. I didn't find any of it boring or thought it dragged on at any point. Tremendous acting and I loved the music. So many scenes give me chills everytime I watch it... and so far it's gotten better each time I've seen it.
