Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread
« on: July 16, 2013, 09:42 AM »
I'm all for humor - but it needs to be kept in check.  The two researchers where just not in the same movie.  I actually really liked Charlie Day - except that he was about four measures too far over the top.  You can be funny without being slap-happy goofy ridiculous.  And Burn Gorman's character was just so, SO over-the-top awful... it's like he was out of an early 80's reanimation horror film.  I haven't seen that sort of over-acting in years.  Neither fit into the universe created here.

I found myself smiling throughout, but I agree there were missteps.  The two researchers were awful.  Pulled from bad caricatures of awful Saturday morning cartoons.  They were completely out of place.  Same for Ron Perlman, IMO.  Those characters were too over-the-top and really pulled me out of the film.  But I liked the principals.  I liked the Australians and the Americans.  I would have loved to have seen more of the Russians and Chinese.  If the film had focused solely on the teams I think it would have been a much stronger and emotionally impactful experience.

Still I thoroughly enjoyed a lot of the film. I'd love to see a sequel.

Great news on the foreign front. Warner Bros says Legendary Picturesí Pacific Rim opened #1 in all 7 Asian markets on Thursday grossing a total $3.7M from 2,157 screens despite a crowded international marketplace. Korea made $1.4M from 961 screens, Taiwan: $611K from 199 screens, Thailand $559K from 273 screens, Malaysia $348K from 207 screens, The Philippines $283K from 277 screens, Indonesia $249K from 168 screens,  Singapore $240K from 72 screens.

Box office results from Thursday early shows came in good  > $3 million.  That points to a fairly successful weekend.  I think this is a film we sci-fi geeks should support.  Del Toro indicated he'd like this to become a franchise, and given the great reception this has received I'm gonna pony up my cash to help that happen.

I don't know... if the glowing thing is a sub-dermal shifting kind of thing, it could look pretty awesome.

I'm mostly familiar with Diesel from the Fast/Furious franchise.  I haven't seen him in a role where he attempted to lose the accent.  Some people can.  Others can't.  There are countless movies where an American actor has tried to sound British and failed miserably.  So I'll be skeptical until I hear him do it.

Vision

Again - Jersey accent.

An android with a Jersey accent?  That was the original idea for C-3PO...

Thanos maybe?  No voice grittier.  He just needs to drop the Jersey accent.

He's as dead as this forum...

Lucas isn't directing and digital effects have come a long way since Episode 3.  There's no reason if SW7 is filmed in 2014 that it couldn't be in theaters in May 2015.
