All the new posts are there.




What can I say… I’m disappointed. I loved the first two films. They were great…they were everything that any other comic book superhero movie should strive to be. They had the right amount of drama, romance, action and comedy. If only they had stuck to same recipe of success…instead, they injected way too much action and corny cheesy comedy.

spider1.jpgLet me see what did I love about the first two films…I loved the narration. We actually get Peter’s perspective of what he’s going through and thus he seems much more human than ever before. The villains…with each movie we are introduced to new villains. With only one villain for each movie…each has more screen time…are better developed…and we are further able to understand where they are coming from. And of course with villains…come the next best things…the great special effect and action sequences…I thought the action scenes with Doc Ock were really cool. The movie also had some really good drama…from Peter losing Uncle Ben, Peter struggling with school and work, contemplating not being Spider-Man anymore and the whole drama with Mary Jane. With a small tinge of comedy and romance…both movies were extremely fun and entertaining.

**May Contain Spoilers**

So what did Spider-Man 3 do wrong? (my opinion anyway). Where was the narration…the voice overs? And the villains…there were like 3…thats like villain overload…you kinda wonder how Spider-Man survived after all the numerous attacks…I know he’s a super hero and all…but he’s becoming less and less human in this movie. Plus…I don’t think the villains were as developed as they could have possibly been…I still don’t get where Sandman is coming from… Is he really bad…or good but extremely tormented? Neither did I like the whole drama with the love triangle between Peter,MJ and Gwen Stacy…I absolutely hate how Gwen was introduced…I for one have never read the comics…but I do know that Gwen is suppose to be Peter’s first love or something…and to throw her into the story just for the love triangle plot…I think thats weak. The worst I have to say…is the whole comedic dance routine…that was utterly ridiculous. Was not the least bit funny…quite a pathetic attempt to inject some light comedy into the movie. Oops…and almost forgot…how many times are we going to see MJ being held hostage by the villain…the damsel in distress again…its getting old…spider2.jpg

So… about the only thing I like about this movie was the special effects and action sequences…especially the chase and fight sequences between Spider-man and the Green Goblin and the formation of Sandman. They look really cool…Spider-man was like bouncing of walls …again awesome. And aww…I hate how it ends…with Harry dying..who’s gonna be the Green Goblin now? And who will the alien symbiote cling onto next?…I think we can be sure will see a Spider-Man 4…hopefully a much better storyline

I think my thoughts a pretty much clear. Overall I did not like this Spider-Man movie at all. Want to watch a great comic super hero movie…watch the first two Spider-Man.

Posters Galore
I love posters. A great poster garners interest for the movie. First impressions are everything right? Here are some recent ones.

CAPTIVITY: I know its Elisha Cuthbert in the Poster since it is her movie…but doesn’t it also look like Ashley Simpson? That’s just what I think.

SPIDER-MAN 3: One of the many Spider-man 3 posters to have been released…this one is the latest. And yet another reflection poster…boring…Give us new shots…maybe also of the other characters?

SHREK THE THIRD: Another boring poster. Give us something good.

FANTASTIC 4 RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER: Susan Storm looks kinda weird. Issit the angle? KInda looks like the face is pasted on the the neck. All the others looks fine.

My Pick for Movies of 2007

I like period/costume dramas…whatever you call them…so I’d really like to see it. Plus I’m actually reading the book…Hopefully I can finish it before I have to return it to the library though. The director is also the guy who brought us Run Lola Run and The Princess and the Warrior. I of course have never watched Run Lola Run but I loved the Princess and the Warrior. The Perfume trailer has been out for a while now and it does look good too…So check out the trailer

The Invisible
A teenager is attacked and left for dead and becomes a spirit of somekind. He goes to school and realises no one can see or hear him. He struggles to tell his friends and family where his body lies. I saw the trailer recently and I found the story interesting…sounds something like The Sixth Sense

and The Others…well maybe the teenaged version at least… although I think they’re going for more of a murder mystery type of thing. Check out the trailer

Because I Said So
This looks like a fun romantic comedy that I would actually like.I love the Gilmore Girls and this one actually stars Lauren Graham whom I’ve never seen acting in a feature film.It also has Mandy Moore who I have to say is the best singer turn actress out of the four pop princesses that came out in 1999. The trailer looks good..check the movie trailer

Its been said that this might be the ‘teen’ version of Hitchcock’s Rear Window…so of course I want to see how this turn out. But this also means I have to check Rear Window first. No trailer and posters have been release. Check out the movie profile

The Nanny Diaries
A movie adapted from a bestselling book, the Nanny Diaries stars Scarlett Johansson as a college students goes to work as a nanny for a rich family in New York. I want to watch this one because its adapted from a bestselling book…I love watching adaptations. Plus I think this one could be good. Check out the pictures here and here.

Spiderman 3
Ok you must know by now, if you’re read my previous posts that Spider-Man is pretty much my favourite comic superhero movie. It has done everything right…terrific story, great drama, awesome action sequence and cool soundtrack. Plus the spider-man costume actually looks alright. Spider-Man 3 will feature Gwen Stacy and I’m curious how they will actually be fitting her into the story…and of course we will be seeing more villains this time. Trailer is out, check it
here and here.

Shrek the Third
Pretty much the only animation I watch. Hope its still still as funny as the previous two. Check out the trailer

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
So trailer has finally been released…you can check it out here. What can I say…it looks cool. The human torch looks cool as ever…so does the Silver Sufer…hmm who is the Silver Surfer anyway? You check out the trailer

Nancy Drew
I’ve never read Nancy Drew as a child…well now i don’t heve to right…The trailer is out and you can check it out

Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Harry’s adventures are always interesting and fun and most of all absolutely magical…even though they are supposedly to get more scarry as the years progressed…And Hogwarts…ahh I love the school…the set is amazing…just looks soo realistic…don’t u think…Check out the trailer

I’m not sure what the story is about…but its supposedly a fairytale of some kind thats adapted from Neil Gaiman novel. Saw the pictures on IMDB, it looks interesting, and the last fairytale type movie that I’ve watched was Ever After which was years ago…Hope this is good. Read the profile

Virgin Territory
Another period film…again I don’t really know what this movie is about…But it stars Mischa Barton and Hayden Christensen…so I ‘m interested to see what this movie will be like. Saw some of the movie stills…seems like a fleshy movie…I wonder if we will get to see the movie in Singapore. You can check out the pictures here.

Ok…Atonement is one of my favourite books…so naturally I’m awaiting the release of this movie.Keira Knightley is playing Cecilia the elder sister of the protagonist, Briony…I do hope that Keira’s character does not overshadow Briony…since Keira is soo famous and all….Anyway I hope its good and that it stays faithful to the book. Some stills are already out so check them out here.

The Eye
I want to watch this one because its a remake of the asian movie of the same title made by the Pang brothers. Curious if they will be able to pull this one off.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

One of my favourite books…so of course I want to see every version that is made. I’ve already seen the 1946 version which I didn’t really like. This one is a modern adaptation of the book. It stars David Gallagher aka Simon of 7th Heaven as Dorian…he is youthful and good looking enough though honestly I do not see him as Dorian…plus I’d rather watch it in its original setting. Anyway, the trailer is already out…check it out here.

The Other Boleyn Girl

Another adaptation and another period piece. This one is about two sisters who contend for the affection of a king and Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johnsson stars as the Boleyn sisters. With two of the best young actresses in Hollywood this has got to be good….right? Click here and here to view some pictures.

Big Movies Coming to You in 2007

I used to watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons as kid. It sure would be interesting to see how this movie is gonna be like.I think it was a good move to actually make a CG animated movie rather than a live action movie and the trailers look pretty good too. But honestly I don’t think it would do too well at the box office though.

Spider-Man 3
Now this movie will of course do well.I love the Spider-Man movies. They’re always fun,with a good story,great action sequences and of course it has a great sountrack too. Can’t wait to see it.

Shrek the Third
This is probably the only animated film that I watch and like…The Shrek films are always very funny. Love the fairytale spoofs.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World Ends
I don’t get how the Pirates of the Caribbean films are soo successful. I watched the first one…and I just find it ok…actually much too long too.And I wasn’t exactly looking forward to sequels. But anyway other people love so I’m sr

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Although the Fantastic Four movie wasn’t as good as the Spider-Man and X-Men movies …I still thought it was a fun movie…ok well…I like SuperHero movies…I want to see how this will turn out … good I hope. Neither the trailer nor the poster has been released yet

Yes…I used to watch the cartoons too. Its interesting how the cartoons of my generation have made it to the big screens in 2007. Just saw the teaser trailer…its ok…I’m doubtful though that it will be any good. I just think it’s a mammoth task to make it into a live action movie and to make it as realistic as possible…well that’s just what I think.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
I love the Harry Potter movies. Its just fun and I love seeing the magical world of Harry Potter come to life…especially Hogwarts of course. I’m sure there are tons of other people excited about this movie too. Oh and the seventh book has been named…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The Simpsons Movie
After more than 10 years on tv…they finally decided to make it into a movie. I’m certainly curious if its gonna be good.
