Sho Nuff!

January 13th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Movies

I forced the wife to watch part of this last night.  I don’t think she’s forgiven me yet.

Is this major levels of cheese?  Sho-nuff!

(from the wife)

Is this a form of torture?  Sho-nuff!

Today’s Hollywood Blasphemy

November 2nd, 2009 | 2 Comments | Posted in Movies, WTF

I’ve been light on blogging due to midterms and thesis projects which I will post images of later, but I couldn’t let this pass without comment. Hollywood, in their truly craptastic wisdom, have decided to remake one of the greatest, and my favorite, movie of all time True Grit

Paramount Pictures and the Oscar-winning writer-director team are moving fast on their re-adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, first reaching out to Jeff Bridges, and now Damon and Brolin, to potentially star. Damon would take on the Glen Campbell role of a Texas Ranger tracking an outlaw along with a gruff U.S. marshal originally played by John Wayne, who won an Oscar for his role in the 1969 Western.

Seriously, is this a fucking joke or something?? Jeff Bridges in John Wayne’s roll? I’m sorry, Jeff Bridges is a good actor and I thought he did a fine job in Iron Man, but he is no John Wayne and to add Matt Damon “I don’t to films with gratuitous violence” in it as well!!! WTF???? Why not throw Pauley Shore in there as well and maybe David Spade as the Texas Ranger instead!

I work in a bookstore, I see TONS of new books on the shelves. Maybe you Hollywood types should go into a bookstore at some point and pick up something new, read it, and then make a movie from that instead of constantly deciding to redo something that was already done right the first time. How many remakes do we really need? OR is this just some really cheap way to make a new movie. You already have the script so you can just cut the writers out of it and work from the original one?

Scott Rudin, who produced the Best Picture winner “No Country,” is producing “Grit” as well, along with Steven Spielberg. Focus Features recently released the Coens’ latest film, “A Serious Man,” after premiering it at the Toronto film festival last month.

Oh good, and Spielberg is involved too, so maybe we can have cheesy flying saucers at the end just like in the last Indiana Jones movie (which sucked too!)

How can anyone ever hope to improve upon this

Please tell me this is a joke

Another “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie… WTF???

Depp will reprise his role as Capt. Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” slated for summer of 2011. It’s the fourth in a series.

Dressed as Sparrow, Depp staggered around the stage and embraced Walt Disney Studios Chairman Dick Cook, who announced the news to about 5,000 fans on hand for the D23 Expo, Disney’s answer to Comic-Con.

Yeah, just what the world needs, another crappy movie, because ‘At World’s End” wasn’t bad enough for them

I know I’ve said this before, but is there NO originality left in Hollyweird?  Are they so afraid of taking a chance on something new that instead all we get is retread after retread.  And then, when they DO try something new they either take the original story and screw it up so bad you can’t recognize it from the book that they took it from, or the do something so left wing artsy that the only people that go to see it are the Hollyweird people themselves.

And to add insult to injury, Depp will be in a Lone Ranger movie…. as Tonto.

In his presentation of upcoming Disney films, Cook also announced that Depp would play Tonto in an upcoming big-screen adaptation of “The Lone Ranger.”

Yea, cause I bet there was NO WAY you could find a Native American who could act, right?  I remember laughing over the fact that Hollywood had Chuck Connors play Geronimo, the bluest eyed Geronimo you will ever see, and how Hollywood is all about rights and equality but they are so concerned with equal rights that they once again can’t find an Native American to play a Native American.

Why is that somehow OK to do this but it’s not OK when Robert Downey Jr put on blackface to play a character in “Tropic Thunder”? It must be a ‘black thing’ or something that I’m just not smart enough to understand.  In any event, a big “thank you” to Disney for proving that, even without Eisner, they are still going to shovel crap to us and call it a feast.

I’m the God Damn Batman Redux

Well, since I posted about Ol’ Chrissy Bale’s (I’ll call him a man’s name when he acts like one) meltdown on the set and referred to him as a ‘fucking punk’ I thought I should do a follow up since he has made the traditional Hollywood apology.

“It’s been a miserable week for me,” Bale, 35, admitted. “I was out of order, beyond belief. I acted like a punk. I regret that. There is nobody who has heard that tape that has been hit harder by it than me.”

We are still, of course, waiting for the announcement that he will be entering a treatment facility to help him with his anger management issues, but I have to laugh at the There is nobody who has heard that tape that has been hit harder by it than me”. Yea, sure, you are just worried that people are going to say “Screw you.  I’m never going to one of that assholes films.”

According to the recently released audio tape, Bale screamed for nearly four minutes in a profanity-laced rage at Hurlbut when he accidentally walked on set.

But Bale said his freak out was due to the intense nature of his craft.

You want to see the “intense nature of {someones} craft”?  Get your ass out there with a firefighter trying to save someone from a burning building; or a cop who is under fire from some piece of shit gang banger; what about a doctor or an EMT who is trying to save a person’s life as the patient is circling the drain; or how bout one of our military members on point in Iraq or Afghanistan.  I did a quick search and can’t find anywhere if Chrissy have ever even BEEN to see and support our troops.

No, your ‘craft’ is not intense.

Yes, I do know a little about acting because as an animator we have to ACT out what our characters are doing and that requires – ACTING!  Am I on the same level as a multi-million dollar movie person?  Nope, but I think that if you are getting paid that much to do make believe then maybe you can ACT like a fucking human every once in a while.

I ask everybody to sit down and ask themselves, ‘Have they ever had a bad day and ever lost their temper and really regretted it immensely?’”

I’ve had bad days, everyone has, but my WORST day never included a four minute tirade and threats of violence, and that was the day I was slashed open with a broken beer bottle by a drunk asshole.

Chrissy, you are a spoiled little brat who threw a tantrum when the world didn’t turn the way you wanted it to and the sky wasn’t the perfect shade of blue for you.  Grow the fuck up, jerk.

I’m the God Damn Batman!!!

Yea, not really

Filming at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico on July 18th last year, Bale goes off on the director of photography Shane Hurlbut whom the actor accuses of ruining a scene by walking onto the set. Bale threatens to quit the production if the DP isn’t fired.

Yet another Hollywood prick who thinks that he is more important than he really is.  He thinks he’s an “artist” when the fact is he’s not.  He is an entertainer.  The artist is the person who wrote the script, the storyboard artist who lays it all out so Mr Bale knows what the fuck he should be doing, the cameraman who does the amazing camera work to create an effect, Bale just spouts off lines – that’s it.  Without those other people there to make him look good he’s just another pissy liberal

Personally, I have yet to see him in a movie that I thought was worth a crap and that includes Batman.  The only way they could have gotten someone who was LESS like Batman than Christian Bale was if they had hired Pauly Shore for the job.

I think as soon as Bale spouted off with “I’ll kick your fucking ass” I would have told him to bring it.  May have lost my job, but there is no way in hell I’d let a fucking punk like Bale threaten me.  He can go pound sand up his ass for all I care.

Yea, This what Bale thinks he is.

Yea, not so much

Too Dang Funny
