  • Re: Official Fantastic Beasts Thread - DAVID YATES TO DIRECT FIRST FILM

    "They love to hate, and I don’t care; let them hate. They’re still going to see the movie!"


    Yates is a good director but I can't forgive him for Half Blood Prince, and Part 2 of DeathlyHallows verges on the sufficiency. Despite this, I have good hopes for the first film od Beasts. But that's it. We want new faces please WB!!!!!
    This is what had me so disheartened when I heard the news of Yates. At the time, when I was young and oblivious I was in full fan mode "YESSS FANTASTIC MOVIES YAAAAS". Well, now that I'm older and wiser I sit back and I have to skip many parts of most of the films besides POA and OOTP. HBP Literally serves no purpose in terms of storytelling besides the final twenty minutes. I'll keep all these opinions to myself and If you love them all that's fine. This isn't a post to attack any soul, it's mainly for me to vent about the possibilities of the future.

    This isn't all of Yates' fault however. There are the producers. David "lets cut this scene because it looks like its out of Saw" Heyman. More than likely David Barron - which as far as in interviews he comes off as a basic minded person along for the ride. The only thing that has me pumped is that Jo is writing this. I hope it ends up appealing to the masses and creates a new era of storytelling without a castle and trio. She has so many artistic liberties and freedoms that I do have faith in the writing because she has a complete hold on her creations. Granted this is her first time writing a script as well but I'm more than positive it will go well. I have faith in her. It's just the direction I'm worried about...and if they get talentless hacks like Nicholas Hooper (seriously. I never looked at his IMDB until today and how the fuck did he get handed the rights to HP?! "oh I've shot a few nature documentaries. I'm perfect" Give his tracks ten more years and they will be dated, not timeless like the works of Williams or Desplat) or the ever popular Mark Day. Let's not even go there.

    I hope...I genuinely hope Yates cant hand over whoever he's worked with before again onto one of the biggest Book/Film/Etc properties in human existence. This is my point. Looking back on all of the films, there was such a potential for the highest of quality. I feel like we got that with parts of films 1,3, & 7.5. The rest I am not so kind on any longer. GOF and HBP are the worst in my eyes. I cannot even watch most of the films anymore...I don't know gang. Maybe I just lost touch with being a fan, maybe I grew up, maybe I just don't care any longer. The 1-7.5 series doesn't make me happy any longer. I've shouted out enough of my boisterous opinions on the matter. I just hope as the announcements for cast and crew start coming out we start seeing something fresh. Keep Stuart Craig, Desplat, and a couple of others. However if we get Hooper, Mark Day, etc then I will begin to get very worried. This is a new series so it should feel fresh yet a taste of the familiar. Please Yates don't fuck this up. lol

    Guardians of the Galaxy - 9/10

    Hands down my favorite marvel movie.
  • Rik Mayall, cast as Peeves in 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone', dies at 56

    Actor Rik Mayall, who many may not remember as being cast and even working on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone as Peeves the Poltergeist, died recently at the age of 56, his management has said. No footage as of yet featuring Mayall as Peeves has been released by Warner Bros. or any other avenues.

    Mayall was best-known for the TV shows The Young Ones and Bottom, both of which he starred alongside Adrian Edmondson.

    He was also in several other programmes including The New Statesman, The Comic Strip Presents and Blackadder.

    The star was left seriously ill after a quad bike accident in 1998 which left him in a coma for several days.

    But he was working until recently.

    The story of how he was cut from the film is here:



    One day we will more than likely see his scenes ala what has been done with the Star Wars films deleted scenes coming out years and years later.
  • Re: 2013 Razzie Nominations

    Umm It's the Razzies. I don't think these really matter other than for some laughs. Don't take them so seriously gang. If you enjoy certain movies or things you know what enjoy them all you want. Don't let some random unimportant award take that away or make you angry. :)
  • Re: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2014) Official Thread

    some stuff like the Groot maquette with Diesel looks awesome, and then some of the character mixing looks odd together. It could be a real nightmare to be a cinematographer on this because it could all look real goofy real fast. The more I see the more I hope this doesn't fail. I'm still in between on everything but with no footage besides leaked low res seconds of a trailer and production art it isn't much so I'm still holding out hope. I just hope this doesnt flop but this movie is such an odd one that only time will tell. *sits and watches from afar*
