Reading about Twelve Years a Slave and I am now so very excited to see it. Stars Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt, and Michael Kenneth Williams. I am not even naming all the actors in the film. Such a stacked cast. I am most excited though by the fact that it is directed by Steve McQueen. Shame was IMO the best film to come out of 2011 and one of the best films in years. Every one of you who has yet to see it needs to do yourselves a favor and get on that.

I love that Ben Stiller just used the same character in Dodgeball years later. But yeah a buddy of mine just said recently he wants to rewatch Heavyweights.

The sports comedy DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story is finally getting a sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn are expect to return to reprise their roles.

In the first movie, Vaughn stars as Peter LaFleur, the owner of a small gym who's trying to prevent his gym from being taken over by a larger, more successful gym owned by Ben Stiller's White Goodman. In order to get the funds need to save his gym, he forms a team to enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament for the $50K prize money.

In the sequel, Stiller and Vaughn will have to team up to take on a more threatening foe. Obviously, there will be more dodgeball action.

Clay Tarver, who has one produced screenplay in the 2001 thriller Joy Ride, is writing the script. According to THR, Tarver "has spent much of his time in the comedy world and has a familiarity with niche, subculture activities" so he's not exactly an out-of-left-field hire.

DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story was generally well-received by the critics when it was release, scoring a 70% at RottenTomatoes. The movie also made over $167 million at the global box office on a $20 million budget.

Lol but I see Ryan Gosling in it and all I can do is laugh.

I assume its supposed to be one of those funny movies posing as a serious one?

Saw Iron Man 3. Like the second one, it was decent, but I felt it left some things on the table. Just wasn't as engaging as the first, but that is a tall order. And the after credits scene...meh...

The Place Beyond The Pines is the best movie I have seen so far this year. So incredibly beautiful. A lot of the shots are just breathtaking, the score was great, and the acting was top notch. People have complained about the length but I think the length was necessary and important from a thematic perceptive. I also never have a problem with a long movie if it holds my attention which Pines did. Highly recommend it.

Saw Evil Dead right after and was incredibly underwhelmed. I enjoyed it but it was really lacking in the fun department. Incredibly gory and chalk full of senseless violence which I have no problem with but with so much violence it needed something to ground it. That should have been good characters but I didn't care for any of them and like I already said, it really lacked fun. I liked the call backs to the original but I found the whole movie to be one giant tease. Bruce Campbell really should have made an appearance at the end and saved the day. Really looking forward to Army of Darkness 2.

I also never have a problem with a long movie if it holds my attention which Pines did. Highly recommend it.

Saw Evil Dead right after and was incredibly underwhelmed. I enjoyed it but it was really lacking in the fun department. Incredibly gory and chalk full of senseless violence which I have no problem with but with so much violence it needed something to ground it. That should have been good characters but I didn't care for any of them and like I already said, it really lacked fun. I liked the call backs to the original but I found the whole movie to be one giant tease. Bruce Campbell really should have made an appearance at the end and saved the day. Really looking forward to Army of Darkness 2.
I have yet to see Pines but will get around to it very soon. On evil dead, completely agree. Far more emphasis on the gore than any of the characters which was disappointing. I didn't hate it, but it was just so.....mediocre. Pretty pointless remake of the original if you ask me, and really everyone just wanted Evil dead 4 anyway.

Mediocre is a perfect description for Evil Dead. I found myself enjoying the movie more towards the end but it really did lack good characters. If even one of them was memorable like Ash in the originals the movie would have been so much better. The best thing to come out of this will be Army of Darkness 2 happening because of its success.

As for Pines get on it. I saw a noon showing of the movie so I was in a theater full of elderly people. It was hilarious to see them all moan about how they hated the movie when it finished. I was glued to my seat for a bit just because the movie really hit me hard. Perfect song to close the film and while I had heard complaints about the end I thought I cannot think of a better way to close it. It is pretty much impossible to talk about the movie without spoiling it so I will just say enjoy it.

It didn't blow me away, but I thought Pines was pretty good. Acting was good, the characters definitely got you feeling the desired effect, I absolutely agree on the music. They really lay on the parallels pretty thick in the movie, but such is the theme. There is one scene in particular that had me feeling two very different things at maximum capacity at the same time. Plus Ben Mendelsohn is very enjoyable in it.

Still, it didn't quite reach its peak potential, in my mind. Might still be the best movie I have seen this year by default, since I think the only other one I have seen is another Gosling flick in Gangster Squad.

I do want to check out Mud. McConaughey is awesome these days, Nichols made a good film in his last effort (Take Shelter), and you know there is going to be some Ben Nichols tunes thrown in there.
