Random Movie News

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Yep, it's a Welsh kitchen sink jobbie starring Rhys Ifans before he started appearing in rom-coms. Looking at the video case now, it says his brother was played by someone called Llyr Ifans, so I take it they must have been real-life brothers.

I haven't seen it for a few years, but I remember it's an even seedier Welsh version of Trainspotting.

I seem to recall it starting off quite light-hearted in a dingy kind of way, until the brothers' whole family gets killed off one by one (I think their sister and dog end up going up in a trailer fire or something), at which point it turns into a pretty bizarre Swansea version of Death Wish.


I enjoyed it as a bit of a laugh. It's even got Tom Jones on the soundtrack.


Tom Jones ydy y Cymraeg sefydliad!
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Two things I learnt using that Welsh translator just now:

1) Tom is Welsh for dirt

2) The word "Welsh", once translated, sounds a little like cum-rag.

There is meaning here, I'm just not sure what it is...

I'm not sure if it's the same in the U.S. but there's this incredibly annoying feature on British laptops that only lets you change the region 5 times. Meaning, to watch one British movie you'd have to change it twice (to Region 2 and back again afterwards).

Never fear, however, there is a program called DVD Region + CSS Free available, either by legal means or otherwise.

Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein

Postby TheButcher on Wed Jan 02, 2008 7:30 pm

Frankenstein by Guillermo Del Toro?
Del Toro revealed that he has "always been" interested in directing a new version of Frankenstein, and that he is hard at work doing pre-production. Due to the WGA strike, he is unable to work on a script, but he is currently creating illustrations and images that he hopes to use to create the world of the classic monster and his creator, Victor Frankenstein.

"I started doing some notes before the strike," Del Toro states, "I can only draw now."

source : movieweb



"The only way to do the Shelley novel is to actually do a four-hour miniseries," he said. But I think there permutations in which you can tell the myth in a different way." del Toro also joked that he will cast Robert De Niro in the role of Frankenstein, and that the director himself will "appear shirtless for most of the length of the film."

I haven't seen that in years--I bet I caught the same late night showing Peven did.

Dougray Scott was in it too, one of the rare "Wow, this guy can act" moments that never turned into a career, poor guy. "But I wanna watch Serpico!"

It did become so dark and twisted at the end. Suddenly you felt filthy for laughing as it just crossed the crazy line. I remember Scott's character was offed pretty viciously too.

"Pretty Shitty City"

That line still makes me laugh.

Writers should be writing during the strike. They just shouldn't be selling. You've gotta keep the engine warm, you know?

Pee Wee Herman

But can the 55-year-old Reubens realistically don Pee-wee's red bow tie again? The actor said he remains confident, especially after his first appearance in character in 15 years at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards. Despite asking himself, "What in the hell are you doing?" as he stood backstage in costume, Reubens said the character "came right back" to him. Still, Reubens said he had a backup plan nonetheless for the Pee-wee movies should he not be up for the part. "My second option is to have Johnny Depp play Pee-wee," he said. Pie-in-the-sky casting or a realistic plan, Reubens insisted that he's even spoken to Depp about it, saying that the actor told him, "Let me think about it."

Paul Reubens might star in Life During Wartime from Todd Solondz

Michel Gondry's 'Return of the Ice Kings' is not a sequel to the Ice Pirates.

According to Wizard's Movie Annual-

*Avi Arad finally put down his perverted underage fantasies to bed and is working on a film about "RoboSapien". You know, the toy robot? In the film, a robot named Toby is created to help humans, but the military wants him as a weapon. So he runs away, and meets an 11-year old boy who he befriends. It's not quite "E.T.", but better than "MAC and Me".

*Disney is making a film called "Final Ascent" which is about climbers in the Himalayas who come across a legendary monster. How long before they decide to change it into a movie based on "Expedition Everest"?

Daniel Clowes to write and direct Paul and Michel Gondry's animated film Migel Munya:

/film wrote:Last year Michel Gondry let word leak that he and his 16-year-old son Paul are working on an animated film. Last week /Film got the chance to speak to Gondry in San Francisco, and learned that Dan Clowes, the comic book artist, best known for the film adaptation of Ghost World, is writing the film’s screenplay. Clowes and Michel Gondry have discussed collaborating on a film adaptation of Rudy Rucker’s novel Master of Space and Time, which has been in development heck since 2004. This would be their first collaboration.

“It’s based on [Gondry’s son Paul’s] universe. He’s a sixteen year old. He’s very unique, very funny and very violent in his drawing and his art, showing everything that you could think of that I should have stopped him from coming in contact with, but I failed. He grew up watching Tom & Jerry and Ren and Stimpy, Spongebob. If you take all that and mix it with Gangster movies with blood, you get his universe.

Toy Story 3 in 3-D.
source : movieweb
According to a press release sent out by Walt Disney Studios, Pixar is preparing for a 3-D version of the soon-to-be-released Toy Story 3, as well as 3-D versions for Toy Story and Toy Story 2.


BRENDAN FRASER has seen 15 minutes of Star Wars in 3-D.
That lucky bastard!
"I've actually seen 15 minutes of Darth Vader entering and capturing [Princess] Leia," Fraser said. "The best part was that some of the extras are running around, and they wore helmets and stuff, and because it's in 3D you see so much detail that you can see one of the extras was wearing, like, a construction worker's helmet that someone took a blowtorch to so that it melted to look different. It was yellow on the inside and spray-painted on the outside. So it'll have real charm going backwards to see that stuff."

I did hear about that but I'm not super familiar with Mandrake the magician (until I got all wikipedia on the topic).

Of course anything with Johnathan Rhys-Meyers usually gets me interested in the project so I hope this will be good.

Well, if anyone remembers "Defenders of the Earth", they should know who he is.

At least this is moving forward...he was supposed to be Schmendrick in "The Last Unicorn", but so far, nothing else on that project in years.

I am not sure if this has been posted, but it surely random as hell

Story Highlights

Clay Aiken is playing Sir Robin in "Monty Python's Spamalot"

Aiken thought Python was person until 3 months ago and, at first, hated show

Then saw show again, appreciated fact it was "silliest thing ever

And to top it off, TFA pic looks like friggin Martin Short doing an Aiken impersonation.

Dear God, are you there? It's me, unikrunk.

LOL

Same.

".... and now she's married to a a wacky, slob-like Alien named Herblobolese Beta III!"

-Starring Pauly Shore as a Herblobolese Beta III-


Yeah, this trailer scares and confuses me with it's earnestness.

And moreover, I'm not at all sure if that's my problem, or the trailers.

Is it that thing where they put films on trial?

Oddly enough, I really wouldn't be too upset if that sequel went direct to DVD...

Wesley Snipes has come out looking pretty good in his IRS tax case. He was only found guilty of misdemeanor charges in tax evasion case.

After the prosecution rested, Snipes came out laughing. "That's IT?" He seemed pretty confident that he'd be okay. I guess he was right.

Sometimes I wonder whether the sole purpose of Guillermo Del Toro's existence is to keep movie scoop sites and mags in the black. That goes double for Tarantino; at least Del Toro will occasionally direct something he's said he will.
