hemi tabernlOk so I'm like the rest of you, i'm into new movies, but once in ?a while, you know.. so i just saw it.. ("Carlito's Way") and i have a couple of questions that just burn real hard,
1. Why in hell does it have to end bad and tragic?? why? just why? :(
2. i am a person who believe's in G-d, so i don't believe in "he should have done that".. "he shouldn't have done that" stuff.. why?.. because sometimes it is written in the sky that it's your time to go, and it doesn't matter how 'carefull' you are, you go..

3. But i'm gonna go out of my way and let's "pretened" that i don't believe in destiny and let's try to look at this in a none belief way..
4. what could he have done to avoid thisTRAGIC ending??
5. was his mistake (like he said himself in his heart "oops that was a mistake) insulting and hitting Benny Blanco from the Bronx??
6. or was it the FULL trust in his 'buddy' Pachanga??

7. was it maybe not listening to his girlfriend who loved him and felt "something's not right here" and asked him not to help his conniving lawyer 'friend'? and then he wouldn't have the 4 gangsters running after him and maybe he would be sharp enough to spot Benny Blanco and not get killed by him?
8. the heart is pounding the doubts are many and again, the heart is pounding.. help me please just help me
9. and if you have a belief way out of this please let me know won't you,
thanks

do you have any passports for sale?

Robin Williams would have been perfect as Blaine. Remember all of the different voices and tones that character goes through while dealing with the ka-tet.

Damn, that's a great choice. And only makes me miss the man even more.


What about John DiMaggio?


I don't really know his range, although I enjoyed his Joker in "Under The Red Hood".

Philip J. Fry...and so infuriating.

Sort of another "Making a Murderer".

Anyone else has seen it?

I enjoyed it, but when it was over I felt like I was pitched one thing and delivered another. Granted, it was a compelling story, just not what I was expecting.

138Just read that the Dark Tower movie is only 95 minutes long. What the fucking fuck?

It's based on the first book which has a page count of a hundred and change.


From what I've heard: the movie is a sequel to the books. We're going to see Roland's final journey. Now, whether or not the other books or characters tie in at all remains to be seen. I'd be seriously disappointed if I didn't get Drawing of the Three, Wizard and Glass and The Wastelands as movies. I was trying to do some dream casting of Odetta, Eddie and Blaine the pain of a train. I was thinking Ian McShane as Blaine.

Did-a-chuck? Dad-a-chum?




You're right about your spoiler, DP. Film School Rejects and /Film both had articles detailing that. I also read today that the TV show will be Wizard & Glass based -- if it happens at all. That depends on how the film does.

Still, the short running time bothers me. It's awfully lean for what should basically be an introduction to Mid-World and the characters contained within.

Christopher HollandFrom the trailer, it looks slightly different from the book but still looks like it'll be good. Plus, Ernest Cline (author of the book) took part in writing the screenplay. However, given that the book was "Rated R" material, I'm a little worried that they may tone it down to a PG-13 rating for the sake of having an audience. But who knows? It may still turn out good.

My guess is:
72%-Critics
77%-audiences


I have no guesses for the Tomatometer, but what in the book was Rated R material? I just re-read it last month and nothing is sticking out to me.

I'm in. Oz's party looked perfect, so did the stacks. I just hope they convey the fact that basically everyone is hooked in to the Oasis.

My wife and I really enjoyed the first season. I was worried that the gore would put her off but she loved it. The motel room shootout was one of the funniest scenes I've watched recently.

Looks like Ford has a larger role in this than I thought. I figured he'd just have a cameo.

RockFor the books, I'd agree with Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince and maybe throw Azkaban in there as well. Order of the Phoenix and Deathly Hallows are tied for the worst. The former is full of unbearable badly written teen angst, and the latter features every lame-ass minor character showing up to take a shot at or take a bullet for Harry.

Prisoner of Azkaban is the best film and the strongest visually. Deathly Hallows Part I is a close second, mostly because most of the shite from the source material ends up in Part II and it's able to just soak in its atmosphere. I could do without the rest, although I think the Columbus ones, while not very good, are dumped on a bit unfairly (as most of the others aren't very good either).

I'd agree with all of this, especially the teen angst in part 5. Rowling's prose has always been a weak spot to me and in this book, she seems to gone down a notch.
I just read through the book version/script of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," which I had zero interest in, but my in-laws got for me as a gift. I have to say, I thought it was an excellent read, and seeing the stage directions describing the effects to be used, it sounds like it's an amazing production. I think what I like the most about this entry -- other than the Harry Potter meets Back To The Future idea -- is that it specifically points out and then negates the "Slytherins are all evil" idea that Rowling accidentally created in her early books and then kind of tried to fix in the later ones. Harry's and Draco's kids are really cool protagonists, and even the now-adults get some cool character development in their later years. Since it's a script, you don't have to wade through Rowling's endless B.S. trying to get to the next plot point. It's a really quick read, definitely worth an afternoon.

You know, I think it would be hysterical if Ford was just systematically working his way through his iconic characters, having them killed off in reboots. Bring on Indy 5!

The show is a super-duper streamlined version of that gargantuan novel. Many, many things were cut. I wish they had decided to go with a season-length story instead of a mini-series.


Still, I enjoyed it for what it was.
