Soon it will be the end of blockbuster summer, and then into the autumn films and then the beginning of award season... all the suck-up movies that come out in November and December :) Is anyone looking forward to any movies they've seen trailers for or followed the production of?

I really wanna see:

Hollywoodland
Bobby
Marie Antoinette
The Black Dahlia
Scoop
The Illusionist
Prestige

*Hollywoodland (that looks really interesting)
*Bobby (it has so much buzz, I wanna see if it's good, and how well Lindsay Lohan does, and the 8 million actors in it)
*Marie Antoinette (I am sad it got a bad reception at Cannes. Sophia Coppola can be a hit or miss IMO, but I still wanna see it and I hope it's not that bad because I liked the trailer)
*The Black Dahlia (it's a throwback to film noir, who can resist. And it has Scarlett Johansson)
*Scoop (again, just 'cause it has Scarlett Johansson, I watch all of her movies)
*The Illusionist (Edward Norton.)
The Prestige (another movie with Scarlett, but anyway, it's a period film about two rival magicians and it seems really eerie and cool... and Scarlett in a corset, yum)

*Marie Antoinette (I am sad it got a bad reception at Cannes. Sophia Coppola can be a hit or miss IMO, but I still wanna see it and I hope it's not that bad because I liked the trailer)It's really that bad :shrug: I loved her previous films, but this one. Not good. But what do I know?

Hmm. The Black Dahlia should be interesting. But personally I've got Goya's Ghosts higher up on my list. Actually my list only consists of The Black Dahlia and Goya's Ghosts. Don't really look too much ahead...

LOL! Did you know this film has had one of the biggest internet cult followings? LOL. It looks so dumb, and I think that's why everyone keeps talking about it. I have to laugh just thinking about it. But I wanna see it

It's really that bad :shrug: I loved her previous films, but this one. Not good. But what do I know?

Yeah, they booed it at the Cannes Film Festival and it's gotten horrible reviews. Poor Kirsten Dunst can't catch a break. Sophia didn't do her like Scarlett Johansson. I guess Kirsten will never be amongst her and Natalie and Keira now. But I thought the preview looked so good. Maybe Sophia will take it back into the editing room and tweak it

Hmm. The Black Dahlia should be interesting. But personally I've got Goya's Ghosts higher up on my list. Actually my list only consists of The Black Dahlia and Goya's Ghosts. Don't really look too much ahead...

What is Goya's Ghosts about??

What is Goya's Ghosts about??Ah, what can you say. The French just love their Marie Antoinette I guess. And besides, I think the only way that film would not have been booed at Cannes, would be for it to have a French director - or at least anything but an American. "Can you imagine an American directing a film about our Marie Antoinette!" But then again, it really wasn't very good. Nice sets though.

Anyway. Goya's Ghosts. Basically it's about the Spanish Painter - Francisco Goya, played by Stellan Skarsgard - and his muse. Couple of reasons I want to see it. First place, it's because it's directed by the great Milos Forman (Man on the Moon, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus). I think it's his first film in like 5 years or so. Secondly, the muse is played by Natalie Portman :hearts: So that's a pro too. And it's not a Hollywood film, so no suits screwing this one up. I have high hopes for this one.

Well, it's still a pretty international film festival with journalists from all over. I really gather that the movie was just THAT bad. LOL. I think b/c it's one of those films, that is a period film, but they use a lot of modern dialogue and have a modern soundtrack and a lot of movies like that just come off looking stupid in the end instead of looking artistic.

I love Goya's paintings, but I know not much about his personal life. I mean, well, I usually don't go for biopics anyway. I really can't stand them. The only one that ever touched me so much was A Beautiful Mind. ...and I know everyone likes her, so no one hate me when I say this (I am literally scared to admit this outloud), but I can't stand Natalie Portman!!! But anyway, atleast with Goya, we know his paintings and his themes and his style was kinda eerie, so maybe he had an interesting life unlike most people who get biopics on them (no offense to all those people).

granted, she was hideous in those Star Wars-flicks, but...ah well.

The biopic-thing is just good business in Hollywood I guess. Personally I couldn't care less if a film is a biopic or not. A good film is a good film. Man on the Moon was a biopic, and I loved that one. Ed Wood was good. And on some level Schindler's List is definitely a biopic. American Splendor.

Coudln't care much about Ray though. Or that Kevin Spacey-Bobby Darin atrocity.

The Prestige - saw the trailer the other day; this looks amazing
The Science of Sleep - I've heard good things about this and hope to see it in a couple of weeks, should be a real headtrip.
A Scanner Darkly - I was one of the few to see Waking Life in the cinema and I hear they've advanced the animation technique. Critical opinion seems to be good.
The Fountain - When is this released? Aronofsky's long delayed production. A new trailer just came out but I'm resisting watching it as I've been warned it could spoil some of the impact.
The Departed - Scorcese. Reason enough.
Miami Vice - Initially I wasn't interested and thought it was a stupid idea. But it's directed by Michael Mann and he really seems to know how to make great adult thrillers so I'm becoming tempted.

I Want To Live 2-The Afterlife.

I get to reprise my Oscar-winning role as Barbara Graham, who discovers the afterlife is a lot hotter than she expected. Never fear, though, our tough-talking wise-cracking murderess always has A Song in Her Heart and throws some good tunes your way.
