Long time no post - I should copy write that phrase as it seems to be the most prolific in the blogging world, yet being a man with several strings to the bow, means mine is genuine (please believe me, honest etc etc…)
I firstly would like thank the studios for creating films that seem to give us headache after headache in 3d. Cant wait till the 3d TV allows the collective public to get a headache at home whenever we so desire. It makes one wonder if the makers of paracetamol sponsor the whole process. And always remember that a tiny little chip means that there is no real difference between a cheaper HD TV and a 3D HD TV, other than the price tag…... Wait till the tech hackers realise.
So with a Monday morning schedule clear for an hour or so I find myself wading in on the current captain america debate. It seems all bar the final signing means that a former fantastic fourer and will oppose Hugo Weaving’s red skull. It seems Chris Evans will hold the shield.
Not a bad choice but not too brave cinematically - he does tick the physical boxes though, and will be interesting when both him and Downey Jnr compete to steel the most scenes in any crossover film.
One can only assume that remakes are done for reasons of improvement so the fellow press surprised me when I read that 1980’s comedy and an average Goldie Hawn flick is being remade. The often funny but not groundbreaking “Overboard” is being retooled as a vehicle for J-LO. Well the firat film was saved by the chemistry between real life partners Hawn and Kurt Russell, it makes one unsure as to who they will cast in the remake, but my favourite and starter for 10 would be rent a hunk Mathew McConaughey. They could give it a modern twist and let the older Kurt Russell reprise his role, but this time as an aging lothario (that would be funny)
Finally I caught some interesting footage on several sources over the last few weeks, so I had to promote here as well. For many years directors looking to make a concept or an idea into reality would pitch. Stylistically this can be limiting so several make a real with footage to highlight ideas and styles that need to be seen. The films 300/Sin City were born from show reels made at producers expenses. The latest to catch my eye is called Warren Lynch, and tells the story of a bounty hunter in a Blade Runner style future, that sci fans will love.
