Mind you, this is the same footage we saw last year at SDCC and that you can still see in that hand held, camera captured, YouTube video. This stuff, well, it's golden; in hues of blue and yellow.

So here are my thoughts on the movie "Moon".

Review below the cut )

Overall, it is a very good film. Hard science fiction in the local cinema again? Color me happy.

"Is Spock an elf?"

She rocks. Absolutely. :)

Giant robots beating the snot out of each other? In spades.

I am going to the this showing of Transformers 2 this evening at 12:03 am at the AMC Alderwood 16.

Anybody wanna come with?

...is awesome movie. Woefully messed up in places, but fascinating and involving.

Does anyone want to join me in the mine shafts for this?
fullcontactmuse: (Where the Wild Things Are)
In this post, I uttered my now familliar chant about non-suckage.

In anycase, there is a trailer up for it now.



Or, if you prefer, and I do, here is the link to trailer in QuickTime.

My thoughts on the trailer: They have certainly expanded the story...a lot. I don't know, we'll see how this goes from here...

...but the old warning still applies:

I hope it doesn't suck. I hope it doesn't suck. I hope it doesn't suck. )

I am thinking about doing a showing of Repo: The Genetic Opera in it's high definition glory! Probably after Norwescon when my schedule slows, but still...

Who would be interestested?

Review Watchmen (Mostly spoiler free)

I went with a group of people, including [livejournal.com profile] dreamer685, [livejournal.com profile] digitaleopard, [livejournal.com profile] lilithvf1998, [livejournal.com profile] elryion, [livejournal.com profile] bysmael, and the Boy. Part of the plan was to also hook up with the IBT folks—they were holding a spot for us in line, but we didn't get there early enough—and it was good to see them outside of the context of a convention.

As predicted, getting out of my seat at the Cinerama required a crow bar when the film was over. For being such a nice theater, the Cinerama has really crappy seats.

So how was the movie? I would rate it as a full price ticket and I would pay that multiple times. I liked it. Yes, things changed from the comic books, but the theme and intent of the comic book was still there. Yes, the ending is different in execution from the comic book, but I think it works in the context of limitations around the medium. The movie clocks in at two hours and forty minutes with over 15 minutes of removed footage to make the studios happy.

Possible spoiler regarding a scene that may be triggering to some. )
fullcontactmuse: (Watchmen - Silk Specter II)
A few of us are going to the Cinerama for a midnight showing of Watchmen. So far, it's me, [livejournal.com profile] zorgaulf, [livejournal.com profile] dreamer685, and [livejournal.com profile] lilithvf1998.

Who watches the Watchmen? I'm going to. Duh.

Edit on 5:09 PM, 2/26/2009: Adding [livejournal.com profile] bysmael to the list of viewer.
fullcontactmuse: (Hot Lights)
I received an e-mail this morning that tickets have gone on sale for Watchmen. Right now, only Regal theaters have listings. I'm waiting for AMC theaters to be added to the list. :)

I hope it doesn't suck.
I hope it doesn't suck.
I hope it doesn't suck.

(Swiped from the Seattle Browncoats!)

Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Browncoats!

What: 'Serenity' at the Egyptian Theater - Midnight Show!

When: Friday, January 30, 2009 11:30 PM or Saturday, January 31st, 11:30 PM

Where: The Egyptian Theater in Seattle - Click the link below for details!

Meetup Description: Once again, Universal and Landmark Theaters have teamed up to bring "Serenity" back to the big screen! *cue wild cheering!!*
Midnight shows on both Friday, January 30th and Saturday, January 31st will give us poor Browncoats not one but TWO chances to see our Big Damn Heroes kick some Alliance butt!

Make your plans now but do it fast! Tickets are available to purchase online at the Egyptian website or take your chances at the door. At the Egyptian's "Serenity" showing two years ago, both nights had a large crowd and there's nothing like watching the Big Damn Movie with a crowd of Browncoats!

Note: most of the Seattle Browncoats will be going to the Saturday night show but several of us will be attending both shows.
Another note: The Seattle Browncoats are NOT hosting this movie event so any complaints about the time of the movie can go directly to Landmark Theaters.
Last note (I promise): This is an independent event and has nothing to do with the annual "Can't Stop the Serenity" charity event in June.

Grab you Jayne Hat, your 'coat of a brownish color' and a mug of Mudder's Milk and join in the shiny fun! Who needs to sleep when there's some Reavers to destroy?!

I am listening to Pandora.com and this cover
of "Video Killed the Radio Star" by Erasure. It's certainly identifiable as being the same source, but the tempo is different and it's just...not the original. It feels like one of those crappy re-imaginings of a beloved movie. Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, while visually stunning, left a lot of the concepts of the original film on the floor, though its ending was closer to the book's ending. While I love the premise of the ending in the book and in Burthon's film, there was one detail that just really killed it for me, which was the inscription above the momnument. Those of you who've seen it should know what I'm talking about. :)

So what are some other covers have you have heard that you didn't like? Or maybe a cover that you like better than original? Or maybe you feel more strongly about movie remakes?

For example, I like Abney Park's cover of "Creep" better than Radiohead's original version.

Just based on the premise alone, I have to go see this film. Nazi snow covered zombies? Yeah, this could be fun.

Am I expecting a bad film? I have no idea. The people at the Sundance Film Festival liked it.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. And if Ralph Fiennes' nephew, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, isn't a creppy little boy in this trailer...

Disney has returned to its roots, doing a film in tradition, 2D, cell animation. Here is the trailer for Disney's The Princess and the Frog.
fullcontactmuse: (Hot Lights)
I am going to see this at the AMC Woodinville 12, this showing (the Fandango.com page for this showing).

Let me know if you want to come along.
fullcontactmuse: (Girl Genius - Tractor Clank)
Can I have one, please?


Wall-E Spotted in LA! from Blink on Vimeo.

Quick word about Prince Caspian: Enjoyable if slightly darker ride. Worth the $10 price of admission. May go see it again at a matinee or early weekend show. :)
