    Day-Lewis is going to be nothing short of phenomenal in that role, can't wait. Also, funny to see Gatsby being moved. Oh well, end of the year has other movies too.

    Hmmm, don't know about this one. I liked 'The Town' though. Affleck is a better director than actor...

    Feature debut for David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, looks promising: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=93456

    Looks like he picked up some tricks from his dad.

    already 10,000 threads with the same title but yeah.

    heres mine

    1. BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.

    the hype has been crazy, first time feature director benh zeitlin(glory at sea) looks like he has made something truly special. to me this looks like where the wild things are(done right) meets days of heaven. mixing malick with magic realism has me more exited about this film then any other.

    2. AMOUR

    michael haneke's new film, nuff said right there. stormed over everything at cannes and was said to be the clear and away best film in competition. alot of people have said this is haneke's best film, which means my expectations are for one of the alltime great films in the history of cinema.

    3. THE BURIAL/TO THE WONDER

    shockingly, terrence malicks new film is opening in venice next month! i wont believe it untill it happens because malick, as most people know, takes years and years in post production and tree of life was only last year. also, according to most places he has another film "about the birth and death of the universe" coming next year. hhmmmm, you wait twenty years for a malick film and then three come along at once.


    no order from here on out.....


    ANNA KARENINA

    yes, its oscar bait and joe wright is a talented, but bland film maker but oh how beautiful this looks.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPGLRO3fZnQ




    KILLING THEM SOFTLY

    andrew dominicks(assassination of jesse james) new film looks pretty brutal but awesome. had mixed reviews on the festival circuit but some have given it rave reviews.
    clips

    FRANKENWEENIE

    im not the biggest burton fan but his animations are always great(nightmare before christmas/corpse bride) this looks terrific imo, great idea, great visuals, it should be both touching and funny.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2luLW-9ySw



    THE MASTER

    pta's new one, great story, looks like its gonna be great character study material, which is good because andersons best film "there will be blood" is also in this mold. great cast also.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ1O1vb9AUU



    LAWLESS

    john hilcoat(the proposition/the road) nick cave score and im assuming hilcoats usual cinematographer. looks pretty bad ass.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zl7S1LaPMU



    LIFE OF PI

    one of my(and i suspect quite a few peoples) favorite books, ang lee bringing this one to the screen. the cgi looks abit shoddy( when doesnt it). but im still really excited for it
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZEZ35Fhvuc



    THE HOBBIT

    jacksons need to push technology(ala cameron) has me greatly afraid for this- 48fps is gonna blow, and its in ugly 3d(so it almost fails to make my list based on this fact alone) but there is no questioning the effort and detail of the production design in the lotr's films, going by sets alone, it looks like hes going all out.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOGsB9dORBg



    LES MISERABLES
    more oscar bait but les mis is an epic moving experience on stage and hooper should atleast be able to give it the scale and look it requires. i dont like his grand style in terms of cinematography, just hope he can manage some restraint.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk5UStefYmE[/QUOTE]



    and since i wrote this the epic cloud atlas footage came online so that is very high on my list- tykwer with independant freedom and 100 million dollars(most money ever for indie= epicness, plus wackowskis.....

    With the pre info being relased on The Master, I was reading someone the other day talking about how all PTAs work seems to hover around California, and has a sort era or specific setting, the 70s porn scene, the oil rush, the self help guru new age era, and now this very specific rise of a religion, and then they started talking about looking for a common theme among all the work together, because it seems he may be taking a long look at the state of California as a whole.

    I'm not sure I believe it, but it stuck with me, and I'd like to give it a little more thought and research.

    Honestly, I think it was a radio interview, or maybe a podcast, because I recall that when it was brought up it was sort of off the cuff, and someone chiming in that TWBB is not in California, but then they looked it up and it was in fact.

    So it's something that wasn't a fully formed thought, just an idea that once it was mentioned got stuck in my head and now I want to do a little digging.

    If I find any info or anyone else with similar thoughts I'll let you know.

    I've never read The Life of Pi. What's it about? Is it worth reading? It strikes me that it may found in the same bookstore section as The Alchemist, which I loved ... is that a fair guess ... going solely on the couple of pictures posted here.

    the novel is worth checking out thorpe. in the right hands it's also ripe for adaptation though, and with lee and the guy who wrote finding neverland, it's a safe bet that the film won't let down so you could also just wait for that.

    the alchemist is a good comparison, i reckon if you like one you'll probably like the other. i liked em both anyway. life of pi isn't anywhere near as abstract as alchemist, the personal journey of the main character mostly about exploring christianity, judaism, and islam... the first half anyway. then it kind of spirals into an adventure fantasy story at which point the plot really takes off. lots of great material re truth v perspective, and martel does a terrific job keeping the reader guessing.

    They showed "The Master" to early reviewers to work out any problems with the script, basically the same thing they do with early versions of new computer program versions.


    They called those early versions The Master Beta.
