I swear, that has got to be the most convoluted film series of all time.
It's sort of hard to tell if the movie followed just the tv series or both the tv series and the movies. The storyline changed a bit between the movies and the tv series.

Went to my friend Vickie's last night and we watched Man of the Year with Robin Williams & Louis Black. It's a fantastic movie. It's really funny in spite of the fact that there's a very clear statement about the current state of political affairs in the US.  Couldn't help thinking that it really would be a refreshing change to have a commedian as president:D

Just watched "Cash Back" the full length feature version. It's a really funny flick deals with several topics like the relationship between art & beauty but the main topic is how people deal with time. Especially when they are doing at a very boring job and just wating for their shift to be over.  Here's a link to the short version. :xPA:

FINALLY IT ARRIVED HERE IN GERMANY:

 

SWEENY TODD!!!!!!!!!!

 

Oh yeah...normally I don´t like musicals. (Except for Hair and THIS ONE).

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton again together - this time on a Sondheim Musical.

And Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs Lovette.....cool

Alan Rickman as Judge Turpin

and to make a whole lot of Harry Potter actors complete: Pete pettigrew (*g*) as Turpins right hand Beadle Bumford...... forgot the actors name....


And I have to say: Well done! I liked it a lot. A Grusical at its best. Much blood, much gothic dark outfit and a wonderful killer *lol*!

Next to Michael there´s no other actor out there for me who can play characters that good than Johnny. So subtle and yet so full of passion for a role.

I was a bit reminded to another killer when I watched that movie! (*lol*)

There´s no place like London - does anybody like a meat pie from Mrs Lovette?

Hm - my mother told me about the movie. She's a big Johnny-Depp-Fan. She said that his singing reminded her of David Bowie. I think I'll have to go to cinema again (to hear Alan Rickman sing - hehe)

Yeah, David Bowie in younger years....he´s really good....for a ripe 43 year old man *lol* how he said himself.

He never thought the he would ever sing in a movie...but well, for Tim he doesn´t care if he´s making a fool of himself *lol*. He´s really sweet....

Nice note:

He was asked by Tim if he can do it (the singing), he said: He really doesn´t know. He went to a studio in USA with a friend (a musician), and he taped his singing. Well, he wanted to hear a real comment about it...and his friend asked: do you wanna hear the good news or the bad news first?

The bad oines of course....

Well, Johnny, you have to do it....

 

*lol*

"SOUTHLAND TALES" anyone? I watched the DVD this weekend. The writer describes it as a comedy about an alternate future and the end of the world. It starts with a nuclear attack on Abilene and El Paso, Texas, and comes complete with a quasi-police state, a perpetual motion energy source that causes a rip in the 4th dimension, a power hungry baron in "Southland" (as California comes to be known), the flight of a nice MegaZeppelin (maiden & only flight below), "the Rock" playing an actor that was driven into the rift and returns as his future self but without his memory, Cheri Oteri as a really really bad BAD BAD terrorista, Sarah Gellar as an ex-porn star turned Tv show host and looking darn nice!, Justin Timberlake, Christopher Lambert, Zelda Rubinstein & many others.

I've never even heard of it, but it sounds funny and kind of like a spoof.

Yes !!! I went to see it a couple of days ago...SPOILERS !!!!

First off, I'd like to thank whoever wrote this script for not capitalizing on some Hollywood bimbo just to get the flick in the theaters alongside Harrison Ford. Thank God.


Harrison holds up surprisingly well in this flick but you can tell he's not doing his own stunts, he still moves too stiffly and slowly during his regular scenes to give you the impression he's the flexible younger version of himself. Also, they introduce Shia LeBoeuf as his 'son'...by the ex-girlfriend from the first film, played by Karen Allen, who still looks pretty good for her age. There's alot of 'why didn't you tell me' kind of thing, but everyone just ignores that.

The action is top-notch, still bad guy Nazis out to 'rule the world' kind of thing and Cate Blanchett is stunning in her uniform as the German Scientist on a 'mission', and she knows how to use her little play-toys with flair.

The SFX will blow your mind, and the storyline is actually taken from real artifacts, the Crystal skulls of the Mayan penninusulas of Mexico. (yes there are actually 13) but they don't look like the "Alien' inspired skulls that are stuffed with tin-foil, like the ones in the film.

I recommend it for the action, the little heartwarming bits with Indy's 'son' and the snide remarks they make about Indy and his 'real' name, Henry.

No sex, I don't remember any swearing, but there's plenty of fights and shootouts, and lots of car chases down mountain ravine roads and scary native tribes. Just what everyone was hoping for. (anyone remember that horrible sequel, Temple of Doom? ugh Kate Capshaw was dating Speilberg at the time and wormed her way into that film, thank god nothing like that happened this time).

Oh and of course they just HAD to throw in something with a snake....:)

Brought to you by both George Lucas and Steven Speilberg..:)

I saw the new Indiana Jones movie yesterday. It was really good. While nothing can beat the original, it still had some of the feel. The family arguement in the back of the truck was funny and the movie had some closure about what had become of Karen Allen's character. All in all I did like it and will definitely buy the DVD when it comes out!

Backstepping a bit....Yes, Sweeney Todd was excellent! That movie kicked ass. A delicious amount of throat slitting and Johnny Depp wonderfully portraying a disturbed individual (as he always does)....GREAT FLICK. Highly recommended.
