Cinema Wins and Cinema Sins: Volume 4

- My all time favorite movie monster has to be King Kong. All three of his movies (1933, 1976, 2005) are very good. And now it's been announced that Kong will return in a new animated movie. This new film will put a new twist on the series, though, as it will be told from Kong's perspective.

- Damon Lindelof, co-creator of Lost, has sign a deal with Disney to create an new film, titled 1952. It's been said that the new film has "multiple platform aspriartions" which could mean either video games, comic books or even a TV series based on this film might be possible. Like all Hollywood films now, the project is being kept a secret. All we know is the title, however it is believed that the movie will have ties to Lost or may pay tribute to the sci-fi films of the 50s. A win because it just sound cool and Lindelof is a proven writer.

- John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer are attached to the new animated children's movie Wreak It Ralph. Reilly stars as a villian from an old arcade game that accidently releases an arcade-destroying super-villian after he sneaks into a first-person shooter game to prove he's really a hero. McBrayer starts as Reilly's nemesis, Lynch will play a character from the FPS game and Silverman play a video game "glitch". A win, because, while the title is bad, the movie itself sounds fun.

- Also, quickly, today Indiana Jones turn 30. Happy Birthday, Indy. I got you a pet snake. That's not a problem, is it?

- Hollywood got a little carried away with sequels/reboots/remakes this week. Among the new sequels are: Salt 2, Tron 3, Terminator 5 and G.I. Joe 2. Among the re-whatevers are: Adaptations of the games Risk and Asteroids, a movie based on a View-Master toy, a Daredevil reboot, a reboot of last year's The Wolfman titled Werewolf and a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Now while I don't mind a new Tron or TMNT, all of the other ideas (mainly G.I. Joe 2, the View-Master movie and Terminator 5) sound lame or just unnessecary.

See you later!


  1. I gotta admit, I was pretty satisfied with that animated TMNT movie that came out a couple years ago. The Turtles actually looked kind of real, and looked like they had some coordination, no offense to the 90s movies, but it just did the Turtles better. Animation is really the way to go with the Turtles, and you just can't make costumes for that(again, no offense to the costumes they used in the 90s, they tried really hard obviously, but it was just the wrong way to go). Hopefully, the sequel will still hold everything I liked about its predecessor, while still providing a unique storyline and above all, be enjoyable.

  2. I agree that TMNT was good, but I feel that it was nowhere near as good as the first 2. (III never happened, let's just leave it at that.)

    Does it really count as a reboot if it's only been a year?

  4. You know what's a sin? The Fairy Odd-Parents Movie! I'm not kidding! Nickelodeon made a live-action Fairy Odd-Parents Movie, set to come out this summer! That's the one movie that you can never make, and they made it (not that anybody wanted it). The worst part is Drake Bell plays Timmy Turner. Have you seen him in pink? I have just lost all respect for Drake watching that trailer. Oh yeah, and they use terrible CGI's for the fairies. This has got to be the first trailer that had me on the floor wanting to cry and cringe in despair at the same time. It doesn't help that the Fairy Odd-Parents series has just about lost its steam anyways, but to destroy the series this way, just isn't right. Come on Nickelodeon, give the fairies some props, and please cancel this movie, the fairies deserve better for nearly 12 years of service. Come on people, we can stop this movie if we believe! If we believe...
