New Movies

Post by Niteshade007 » Tue Aug 15, 2006 12:51 am

There are so many movies that are coming out this fall that I am so psyched about. The top three are definately:

Bobby - A movie with an all star cast that has basically everyone from Anthony Hopkins to Lindsay Lohan (Seriously, the full cast is HUGE! It's like Helen Hunt, Demi Moore, Sharon Stone, Christian Slater, Emilio Estevez, Shia LeBeouf, Elijah Wood, William H. Macy, and a ton more). It's about Robert Kennedy's assination. The Story revolves around 21 guests staying at the hotel the night he was murdered. It looks incredibly fascinating, and I can't wait to see it.

Hollywoodland - a movie with a good number of stars, with Adrien Brody, Diane Lane and Ben Affleck (ugh) in the lead roles. It's about George Reeve, the first Superman from the famed TV show, and his apparent suicide. But was it a suicide? Adrien Brody plays a detective who is on the case, Diane Lane plays Superman's love interest, Bob Hoskins plays her powerful studio husband, and Ben Affleck plays George Reeve. Since he is the victim, hopefully he won't be in it long and the "Affleck Curse" won't taint this otherwise amazing looking film.

Infamous - Basically, the story of Capote. It's about Truman Capote when he wrote the book about the two murderers. It also stars Sandra Bullock as Harper Lee, his confidante, and a full cast of many other talents, including Hope Davis, Sigourney Weaver, Gwyneth Paltrow (who sings!), Jeff Daniels, Daniel Craig (the new James Bond), and Isabella Rosellini. I don't remember who plays Capote, but he isn't a big star, so they must have beefed up the rest of the cast.

As you can tell, I love mysteries, and I love period pieces. Put them together, and I will go! Unfortunately, it looks like most of these will have a limited release (especially Bobby and Infamous), but I can wait...I hope!

Sorry, I'm just so looking forward to these movies that I had to get it off my chest.

I love Isabella Rosellini, she played Sydney's aunt in a few episodes of Alias...although I liked Sonia Braga as Sydney's other aunt, Elena, better.

We saw The Descent today. Very scary/jumpy. The beginning was a bit slow, but definitely picked up. Unfortunately, all the time spent with the beginning bits don't pay off in the end because the US version cut the last two minutes. The British ending would have made much more sense. But, if you like to be scared, I think this one really does it.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

The Decent? I'll pass. I can't stand scary movies because they scare me. :cry:

Hmm...go figure, lol.

Not a new movie by any means, but my roommate and I watched L.A. Confidential today. It was really good!

Anybody heard about "The Black Dahlia"? I'm honestly surprised that that movie only got an R. An NC-17 would have been a better fit with the grizly amount of violence there has to be if they tell the story like it happened. Maybe they gave it grace because it had historical value. I couldn't even finish watching the trailer, though.

On another note, did anyone see The Devil Wears Prada? I loved that movie! So fun!

I'm really looking forward to seeing Casino Royale. I've been waiting for ages for them to become more realistic and I think this is the answer to my prayers!

I can't wait for The Black Dahlia! It's perhaps my most favorite unsolved mystery.

The Black Dahlia is on my list, but I'm not sure how badly I want to see it. It looks like it might be gorey, but it does look really good.

Ok, here is my movie update:

I saw "Idlewild" (not on this list), and I was a little disappointed. The dancing was AMAZING, but the music was ultimately forgettable, and didn't fit in with the period (it was hip hop, but set in the 30's). The plot was ok, but a little too dark. Also, there's this whole fantasy element that kind of catches you off gaurd. The previews didn't really advertise that.

I went to see "Hollywoodland" last night at the local movie theater, but the theater I went to wasn't playing it because "the other theater was". WHAT THE *beep*? What kind of town is my college in? I was very dissappointed, and my friend and I ended up seeing "Talledega Nights". She couldn't sit through it, so maybe Hollywoodland wouldn't have been such a good idea. But she does want to see "The Black Dahlia", and that comes out Friday! We probably won't be able to see it this weekend because her parents are coming into town to see her apartment (which we're in the process of decorating), and then the football game on Saturday. Sunday will probably be a homework day, so that's out. Maybe sometime next week.

The only movie I'm excited about this fall is the extended edition of King Kong. I love that movie sooo much! It's in my top 5. :D

That's mostly speculationon the son's part. Others have looked at the same "evidence" and have concluded that there's nothing that really incriminates him.

I believe there have been something like 4 or 5 children who, after growing up, wrote that they're father was the killer. By the way, none of them were related.

I think it's just one of those cases that may never get solved.

That part didn't suprise me as much as when Kevin Spacey's character was killed. I really wasn't expecting that!

Well Nightshade, I wasn't expecting it either, but he was dealing with Dudley who was the villian and he knew too much so I was expecting he wasn't going to last lnog under Dudley's roof.

OMG! I finally saw this movie tonight. My first job after moving to New York City involved being an interim executive assistant to the president/owner of New York City's largest rental real estate brokerage firms. I was having terrible flashbacks throughout this whole movie. Repressed memories kept floating to the surface. I went through much of that same *beep*!
