    Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)

    Nothing really good coming out for a few weeks, but there's word coming out that "John Carter" could be the biggest bomb in quite some time:

    http://www.deadline.com/2012/02/john...f-of-all-time/
    Another writes me, ĒIt just came out. Women of all ages have flat out rejected the film. The tracking for John Carter is shocking for a film that cost over $250 million. This could be the biggest writeoff of all time.Ē Iím hearing figures in the neighborhood of $100 million. And the studio isnít even trying to spin reports of the 3D picís bloated budget any more
    "A Princess of Mars" was one of my favorite books when I was in middle school -- I've been looking forward to this movie since it was announced. The trailers and marketing have looked awful, though. I'd have thought it'd be a better effort since Andrew Stanton (WALL-E, Finding Nemo) was directing.

    Oh well.

    I went and saw Star Wars in 3D yesterday. I'm not a huge fan of the Star Wars series and have only seen all of them within the past couple of years. The movie was enjoyable, however I don't think the 3D added anything to the experience. I thought the pod racing sequence would have been great in 3D but it didn't seem to be any better than it was in 2D. Same for the light saber fight at the end. Now, I understand the movie wasn't originally meant for 3D but if they couldn't make it any better than that it just seemed like a big money grab.

    It's just adding more money to the Lucas franchise. Honestly, after Return of the Jedi, was there really a good Star Wars movie?

    Speaking as a huge Star Wars nerd, the answer is no.

    Revenge of the Sith was OK and had some very good moments, but only because it followed two genuinely terrible movies and seemed better by comparison.

    Saw Chronichle this week, loved the premise and length, hated the shaky camera nonsense.

    I would be very happy if the entire "found footage" genre disappeared.

    I took my wife to see "This Means War" last weekend. Sort of surprising to me, but this was a very entertaining movie. An excellent romantic comedy with enough action to please a guy. Take that as a tip for taking your sweetheart out this weekend.

    At this point people just seem to enjoy complaining about Lucas - how can you possibly be surprised by his tinkering with Star Wars any more?

    Some people just need to let go of their childhood.

    I SO want to see the original, un-messed-with Star Wars A New Hope on the big screen again. I wish Lucas would just leave stuff alone.

    They are HIS films, they don't 'belong to the fans', and he may do with them whatever he pleases.

    Films are an art form. How would you feel if the owner of David decided to give him tattoos?

    It's downright silly to make some pseudo-judicial claim that Lucas hasn't the right to alter his own work. Filmmaking is not a democracy.

    I watched "E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial" on AMC last night. I can't remember the last time I saw it. Maybe when my kids were little.

    What a great movie. Filled with innocence and good-natured fun and gentle child fears and very real characters. A little overwrought in the last 30 minutes (with John Williams orchestration gushing away), but what the hell. And its aged very well. For a 30 year old flick, it is remakably fresh and still modern and a children's classic that adults can watch. Quintessential Spielberg. And a very young Drew Barrymore almost steals the show as Gertie.

    Pay attention to the open sky
