The Incredible Hulk Movie Stills

These are just some of the movie stills for The Incredible Hulk. I only posted what I thought was cool; then again, I kinda thought that Hulk looked weird in these images. But that may be just me.

Hancock Trailer

This is the first trailer of Will Smith's superhero movie, Hancock.

Rapunzel...Rapunzel...You look different.

Or at the very least, you aren't really how I imagined you would look like on the big screen. Maybe I'm too used to watching you on Timeless Tales and the like. Or maybe not.

Anyway, this is a first look (concept shots) on Disney's Rapunzel in 3D which is set to come out on December...2010. I'm actually looking forward to watching Rapunzel, and no, she isn't a favorite fairy tale character.

Why should we want to watch G.I. Joe?

scarlett g.i. joeFirst Showing gives us a list of five things that will make us WANT to see the G.I. Joe movie.

Hmm...I know I'm excited!

Accelerator Suits that will let them run faster, jump super-high, smash through walls, and shrug off bullets."

Nano Bombs are bombs by Cobra Commander that releases lots of nanites that will eat through anything that isn't organic.

Neo Vipers are a bunch of nanotechnology-enhanced soldiers that have mad ninja skills. They're controlled by Destro and they have no emotion whatsoever. Oh and some obscure guy called "Doctor" is responsible for creating them.

Destro's Mask which is also created by the obscure guy, Doctor, lets Cobra control Destro himself. It's made from nanites and Destro wears it because he's ugly.

Scarlett's Armor, shown in the picture, lets Scarlett become Invisible Woman.

So? Are you excited yet? Is anyone excited yet?

Forbidden Kingdom wasn't what I expected it to be

forbidden kingdom(The image is hi-res. Click for full size)

To put it bluntly, I thought that the movie sucked. The story, at least, because the fight scenes were cool and awesome even if they did use the type of fight scenes you'd normally see on some cheesy old Hong Kong films (with the flying stunts and all). Of course, I'm not generalizing since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon did those kinds of stunts too - artistically, though.

Anyway, Forbidden Kingdom is about an American guy named Jason (Michael Angarano) who finds a staff in some pawnshop in Chinatown. The owner of the shop asks him to deliver the staff to its owner and blah blah he suddenly wakes up to find himself in ancient China - the Middle Kingdom, to be exact.

He meets a drunken master (Jackie Chan) named Lu Yan and his "assistant" Sparrow (Liu Yifei) who tells him the story behind the staff - that it belongs to the Monkey King (Jet Li) who was turned into stone by the Jade Warlord (Collin Chou). Jason needs to give the staff back to the Monkey King in order to end the horrific reign of the Jade Warlord.

Along the way, they come across a monk named Lan Cai He (Jet Li) who tries to steal the staff at first but becomes their friend thereafter. I don't think you'd want me to tell you the rest of the story here, right? So I'll stop with the spoilers here and move on to my ranting.

So I already mentioned that I didn't like the story but I don't think I mentioned why. I thought Forbidden Kingdom was a bit too...Hollywood. I mean, movies about the Monkey King were done in the 70s. Aside from the upcoming Dragon Ball movie, I don't think I've heard of any Monkey King movie that has been highly anticipated as Forbidden Kingdom.

My guess is that a large part of the anticipation comes from the fact that it's Jet Li and Jackie Chan's first movie together -- and seeing them fight is epic. Yeah well, the fight scenes were awesome indeed, but I've definitely seen better (from their individual movies too). Some of the lines and scenes were funny and amusing so I guess that's an upside to it, right?

Did I mention how ugly the guy who played Jason is? And how pretty Sparrow is? Well the Witch is pretty too - I think a lot of people who have seen pictures of her (or the movie itself) will agree with me.

I'm not discouraging anyone from watching Forbidden Kingdom. What has been written here are just some opinions of a kung fu and martial art movie fan. These are rants of a Jet Li fan. Go ahead and watch Forbidden Kingdom then go back here and tell me what you think about it, okay? :)

Some Creatures for the Prince Caspian Movie

These are some of the creatures that you'll be seeing if you're planning to watch Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. I'm already excited! Although personally, as far as these pictures go, I like the creatures in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe better. But that's just me :)

Avatar: The Last Airbender on the big screen

avatar: the last airbenderI never really got into watching Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender so I've no concrete idea as to how the story goes.

I am quite aware that it has a following though - made up of both kids and adults - whether they're fans of cartoons in general or not.

Now the news of Avatar: The Last Airbender being remade for the big screen has been creating a buzz especially because it'll be in live action. There are no news about who will play the different characters, but the movie is set to be released on July 2, 2010.

What makes it even more intriguing is the fact that it's M. Night Shyalaman who will be adapting the story for the live action movie. The title too has been reduced to just The Last Airbender so that it won't be confused with James Cameron's AVATAR movie.

Shyalaman recently had an interview with Empire and discusses what attracted him to the series and the difficulties of putting into live action the philosophy involved in Avatar: The Last Airbender as well as the action scenes in it:

“Obviously [there will be] some breathtaking visual effects,” the director says. “Just imagine if you saw a little girl bending water out of a glass into the air as an extension of her own personal discipline. It’s three movies about the hero learning three elements. Live action.”

“It’s daunting on the level of not doing it properly,” he admits. “It can’t be special effects for the sake of special effects, it has to be [that you use] take seven because the girl breathes properly on take seven. I have to tell the animators that. Everything, has to have that detail. I can’t leave it. I have to make sure that I make it the same kind of storytelling, but with just one more tool.”

Any thoughts on this?
