What 5 films in 2007 are you looking foward to seeing? I'm sure there are lots that I don't know about and some that I enjoy that I don't know are being released, by my top 5 would have to be:
Spider Man 3-Venom...
300-Looks visually amazing
Grindhouse-Bound to have some good action
There Will Be Blood-I have faith in P.T. Anderson
Be Kind Rewind-Sound like a great idea for a film frm Michel Gondry
I will see the Simpsons movie because 90's Simpsons were the best years of TV in history...but it probably won't be good.
I'm also on the fence on whether Danny Boyle's new film "Sunshine" will be any good, haven't even seen a trailer yet, so I'll have to wait.
Just want to post the plot for Be Kind Rewind...it's pretty cool.
A man (Black) whose brain becomes magnetized unintentionally destroys every tape in his friend's video store. In order to satisfy the store's most loyal renter, an aging woman with signs of dementia, the two men set out to remake the lost films, which include Back to the Future, The Lion King, and Robocop.
Of course: 300... anybody who's a dude needs to put this in their list RIGHT NOW godddamnit. (anybody else ever feel like giving one of those Spartan kicks to the chest!? Dude kicks up by his neck and sh*t)
Others (in order):
Get Smart - The show was absolute comedy gold, used to watch it on Nick at Night ALOT... and they're getting Steve Carrell to play Maxwell Smart. No previews yet, but I'm going to see this whether it turns out to be good or bad. Huge nostalgia factor going on.
Reno 911: Miami - I looove Reno 911. Also love that alot of their show is improvised. I don't expect the movie to be the same, but I'm sure this'll be great. That crew of comedians has been great even dating back to the skit show on MTV in the nineties, "The State".
Reign Over Me - looks awesome. Adam Sandler in a serious/dramatic role. Not a slapstick comedy or anything like that... The plot isn't coming to me right now, but I know Sandlers character is troubled, but that's about it.
Grindhouse - Double Feature (Tarantino, Rodriguez), McGowan (sp?) with a gun for a leg, zombie-like creatures, Fergie probably gets killed... what's not to love??
Transformers - I have a feeling this movie won't be as good as it's hyped up to be (it is a Micheal Bay flick afterall)... Yet, I really want to see it.
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - hated the first one, but any movie with a decent looking Silver Surfer (like this one) is a must see for me.
The Last Mimzy - looks fairly intriguing. Can't wait to see what this movie unfolds.
Bee Movie - what can I say, I'm a huge Seinfeld fan. I'll see this whether it's rated G or not.
Honorable Mention: Epic Movie - ok, I know this is going to suck, but it'll probably suck so bad it's good. Not to mention there's a Borat spoof, so I'm game.
On the Bubble: Ghostrider (looks like crap to be frank), Simpsons Movie, Die Hard 4 (doesn't look too good either IMO), TMNT (looks ok, not too bad, but not at the top of my list either), Hannibal Rising, Shrek 3
PS. sorry of the long post. I'm a projectionist at a theater and I watch movie trailers (and movies) for a living, so to say.
I've always been interested in a job like that. I'm deeply involved in my company but just curious, how good is the pay?
The pay, it's not too great (7.15 ph). But, I'm certain it varies from theater to theater, corporation to corporation. The particular theater I work at is fairly large, but owned by a pretty "cheap" person (pretty stingy on the pay rate, raises, etc). Evidently has been for years, despite being a millionaire... Of about forty employees total, there's only six projectionists at my theater. Most of us in college, early to late twenties, all dudes (for no particular reason)... It's def the ultimate job if you're into movies. Get lots of hands on experience with film and high quality custom projectors. Get to watch any press-screenings that come in (for instance, I saw "Children of Men" awhile before it came out), as well as any movie currently in the theater. Lots of downtime, can watch movies all day really. Not to mention, all the promotional stuff we get, sometimes well in advance (t-shirts, banners, posters, stickers, buttons, etc)... So, there's definitely perks, but it's not the most high paying job by any means. Theaters, in general, attract a pretty low age group in terms of employees.
