Movies vs Life!

Movies are cool. People in movies are cool. You’ll never be as cool as the people in movies:

And the inevitable sequel:

Real life kinda sucks in comparison.

There’s something about a bad girl that appeals to me.

I’ve got to give Disney credit. I’m not a huge fan of their classic animated features as I find them just a bit on the saccharine side for my tastes, but their live-action twist on Sleeping Beauty where we see the story from the villain’s point of view has me very intrigued:

For all I know the movie may end up being crap, but the casting of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent seems absolutely spot-on. The CGI is a little dodgy, but I’m willing to cut that some slack to watch her tear up the scenery. The new rendition of Once Upon A Dream by Lana Del Ray is just chilling. Oh, and that smile! She’s living up to her name with that smile.

Yeah, this looks like a must-see.

Movies I Want To See: “Tai Chi 0″

Kick ass steampunk kung fu? I am so there…

Movies I’m Looking Forward To: “Looper”

I’m pretty sure I’ve posted a trailer for Looper before, but they just put out a new one that really has my ohmygoshIhavegottoseethis juices flowing again:

I’m really hoping it lives up to the promise of its trailers. Just wish it was coming out this week instead of September.

Now this is the “Star Wars Episode 1″ I would’ve loved to have seen.

We need a good time machine so we can go back in time and show George Lucas just what a shitty set of prequels he was going to make in the future and how he should hire Michael Barryte to help him make them better. Cause the version of Episode 1 that he describes in the following video is one I would’ve been amazingly happy with.

Check it:

Doesn’t that sound like it would’ve been awesome? Darth Maul being a bad-ass for several movies, Obi-wan having some reason to be pissed off, Anakin not being some obnoxious little kid. What’s not to like?

Movies I’m looking forward to: Pixar’s “Brave.”

Disney released a small clip from Pixar’s upcoming animated feature Brave and it makes me want to see it now:

My kind of woman.

Trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man” hits the net.

I was skeptical of the first movie under Sam Rami due to the changes they were making, but it turned out to be pretty damn good and even relatively faithful despite the changes they made. I’m also skeptical of this new movie, but if the trailer is anything to go by then it may also be pretty damn good and faithful to the source material. Which is really quite the feat when you think about it.

Redbox decides it won’t bow to Warner Bros rental delay demands

We’re pretty heavy Redbox users in my house so this is very welcome news. Of course it could result in another rental price bump, but even if it does it’s still one of the more affordable rental options around. Netflix could learn a lesson or two from these guys. #seb #Movies #Rentals #Redbox

Red Box To Warner Bros: Shove That 56-Day Rental Delay Up Your Ass!
The sale of physical movies is way down, as a result: some of the movie studios have been acting irrationally — forcing delays on physical rental services like Netflix, Blockbuster and Redbox. Because if customers aren’t buying your movies anymore, they must be punished.
Earlier this month it was announced that Warner Bros would no longer sell their DVDs and Blu-rays to rental services unless they adhere to a 56-day delay. This move forces film fans to pay full retail to see a new DVD/Blu-ray…

I would gladly watch any of these alternative versions of popular movies.

Leonard Nimoy in Die Hard? I'm sooo there! #seb #movies #humor #posters

Movie Posters From a Parallel Universe [Photoshop]
Imagine if your favourite films were written and acted during a different period of time: the actors and director would be different, the style it was shot in completely alien. These film posters by Peter Stults are an amazing glimpse into how Hollywood could've been.
Whether it's Die Hard featuring Leonard Nimoy, Al Pacino playing Wolverine, Fritz Lang directing Inception or William Shatner taking the leading role in Avatar, things could have been a lot different. And, uh, pretty weird, too….

This won’t make me buy more Warner Bros. movies. This will just mean I’ll see fewer Warner Bros. movies.

There are very few movies I'll buy without having seen them first so if I don't catch it in theaters then the next opportunity would be a rental from Red Box. If WB holds back rentals by 56 days all they'll end up doing is delaying any potential purchase I might make by an additional 56 days. They're not hurting anyone but themselves with this policy. There hasn't been a movie made that I couldn't wait for the rental before deciding whether it was something I wanted to add to my collection. #google+ #movies #stupidity #Warner_Bros.

Report: Warner Bros. Will Stretch New Release Rental Window From 28 To 56 Days

Apparently no longer content with the 28-day window in which it sells DVDs but doesn't allow companies to rent them out, Warner Bros. is reportedly on the verge of doubling that time frame in an effort to starve viewers into starting to buy movies again.

According to AllThingsD, Warner Bros. is gearing up to announce the new window at next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The 56-day rental ban will apply to Netflix, Redbox and Blockbuster.

Along with the revelation that HBO wi…
