Haven't seen Legend or Willow in years, both great fantasy-genre films.
Ah, nostalgia....
Fingers crossed that they've stood the test of time as well as some of my other favourites.   :P

Legend is pretty good, a bit choppy in places but it's Cruise before he entered Shpielberg Hell, plus the love interest isn't too bad either.
Willow was like THE film when I was wee, damn good laugh in places, surprisingly good action too.
Both good sword and sorcery type films, effects may be a tad dated now (both made in the 80s) but nothing too bad.  Going cheap on DVD, too.

Yeah, and Willow has Kilmer in it, and that's a strong selling point in my opinion! Will keep it in mind.

Yup, he does quite well too.  Not your usual sword-wielding hero, our Val.  Neither Kilmer or Cruise were very famous when these films were made, it's good to see them before ego took over.

No, I thought they were pretty good comic-to-film adaptions. I think Fantastic Four is going to be cack though.

I went to see Sin City  this weekend.  :P
Dude, talk about good comic-to-film adaption. Almost pic-by-pic and word-by-word.
Of course, that's the main draw-back too. Nothing new for the faithful readers.  :D  

I also share your your fears regarding FF, judging from the trailer.

Also, I got Daredevil "Dir's cut", which I found rather good.

Did they include transition and choesion in the director's cut?  Because there wasn't any in the theatrical release.

And yes, Sin City doth rule mightily.

Pretty much all of Frank Miller's stuff is worth a look, but Sin City is his best.

I'd watch Iron Man if they ever made it. I heard of plans for an Iron Man movie that got scrapped very very early on.

Isn't he invincible?

Anyone looking forward to this remake?

And I hear Clint Eastwood, actor-turned-director extraordinaire, is going to make a WWII film, called 'Flags of our Fathers'.  Let's hope it's better than Pearl frigging Harbour.

I haven't seen the theatrical release but the DC of DD (don't you love abbrevasions?) is prolonged by some half hour and I didn't felt like they missed any transitions.
Please define choesion. :P

About King-Kong remake; Naah. Catch it on the tube when it comes on.

Guess this is kinda wrong thrread for me.
I've seen Sin City and A Very Long Engagement so now I have nothing to look forward to. :D

Well, I'd like to know why Matt Murdock became DareDevil, for instance.  That's never explained, in the TR release, anyway.

Well, his father (The Devil) wouldn't lose a fight when his old boss told him to, so he was beaten to death by thugs and died in the arms of his son, who then took it upon his little shoulders to stand up for the little man from Hells Kitchen since nobody else done it. :P And of course fine-tuning his acrobatic reflexes bouncing around the rooftops with his "sonar-sense".

Enough for me.

You mean, his father the drunk who obeyed the mob boss when he felt like it?  Not what you'd call a strong role model, really.

Yeah, the very same. He sharpens up after he scared his son blind and starts to win a few matches, bonding anew with his son. :P

Don't recall that in the TR.  Glad to see it improved.

I'm a sucker for Asian cinema, so I'll mourn the remake of Dark Water and find me a copy of Twilight Samurai and watch that instead.  I love samurai films.

Fingers crossed, Ultraviolet should be good.  From the director of Equilibrium, we get a tale of a world riven by civil war, and it's humans versus vampires in the near future.

I also hope Cursed, a werewolf film from veteran Wes Craven (yes, he's had his fair share of duds, let's be nice), will be enjoyable, if not excellent.

Recently discovered a film of Hayao Miyazaki's (sort of the Japanese Walt Disney, but better) that sounds brilliant, Nausicaa.  I've seen most of his films, but somehow missed this one.  Can't wait to find it on DVD somewhere.  Same for Howl's Moving Castle, which won't be out for a while, though.

Oh, I was vaguely interested in The Island before I saw a trailer for it which gave away the WHOLE plot.  Nice going, arseholes.  Still, it was only a Michael Bay film anyway.

Ultraviolet sounds interesting! Thanks for the link :P

The Island sounds like a Lost wannabe.

I look forwards to Saw II. The first one was REALLY disturbing, and great! :D
