I've been watching a lot of films recently and the other day I was at the apple trailers site and watched a whole bunch of goodness... Well... more like hope for some good shit. There still hasn't been many movies that have really sold me. It's all been more of a "Yeah, that was pretty good... but not amazing". I still think 'Casino Royale' is the best film recently and that was years ago already!!! Did I like Quantum you my ask? Well yeah, it was good... But still not as amazing as Casino Royal.
I admit that I'm a scifi sucker when it comes to films.... I just love effects. One of the only reasons why I go to the cinema... for an eye orgy I also love animation a lot!
Here are some of the upcoming films that look great but could be no good... (youtube versions)

Well.. I guess I'll have to wait and see if these will be good...
I do like HK flicks too... but same again I haven't seen a great on in ages... I love Wong Kar Wai Films... I loved Sam Lee in Made in Hong Kong by Fruit Chan. Unfortunately only available on VCD.. I love most of the Triad Movies too... Young and Dangerous, Election, etcetc... Stephen Chow classics.... 'God of Cookery' is my fav
The other day, I was very fortunate to have been invited to see the premiere of a new HK film, BEAST STALKER staring Nicholas Tse. Actually the whole cast was awesome!!! This is a must see... It was intense! Great film... I think Nic will definitely win awards for his performance on this one...
I was really annoyed at some of the audience members that night too... laughing and screaming at scenes when it was really inappropriate to.... How would I describe these scenes to you without ruining the film... The one scene that those fools really pissed me off the most was... oh crap... I cant say... it would ruin it... Just imagine a really dramatic scene and a corner of the audience laughing or going "Eeeeeeeeeeeewwwww!" Come on!!!
On a brighter note.... I did enjoy a really silly film from Japan.... Detroit Metal City!!!!
And I was really surprised to see Gene Simmons in it too!!!! Well figures... As the title of the film/ comic was inspired by Kiss' 'Detroit Rock City'....
Here's the original Comic/Animation
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Q7i8AISGkc I thought the actor did a great job in the movie. He was spot on with the character... Awesome...
I think the Japanese will always stay true to the original story and character and try to make it as close to the original book/cartoon. Always good to see... I was so disappointed with the new Hollywood versions of Spiderman, Superman, X-men and Incredible Hulk... Ironman and Batman rocked but I have a feeling sequels will suck... There's talk of the Avengers but I'm not getting my hopes up...
GO TO DMC!!! GO TO DMC!!! Waaakakakakaaka...
