Stuff You Need to Know, Saturday, November 15, 2008

Coraline poster

It’s like Reader’s Digest for entertainment news. But snarkier. Enjoy.

  • To the right there (click to embiggen) is the one-sheet for Coraline. If you need to know why you should see this, then check out my book review. Short version: Henry Selick + The Neil = potential for gold.
  • The Dark Knight has been disqualified for Best Musical Score because five composers are listed on the cue sheet. You can go read the article if you want, but I didn’t understand it. If it makes any sense to you, come back here and explain it to me. Maybe they only have the budget to create three little statue-guys. I dunno.
  • On one hand, when I tell you that Steve Carell is going to voice the titular character of Despicable Me for Universal and Illumination Entertainment, you’re probably going to yawn. I did. But then the synopsis got my attention: “Carell’s title character is a deplorable man known as Groo who masterminds the mother of all heists when he plots to steal the moon. Egged on by an evil mother (
    [Julie] Andrews), Groo finds one obstacle in his way: a trio of orphan girls who temporarily come under his care and won’t leave.” Now there’s some potential. On top of that all, Russell Brand and Jack McBrayer (from 30 Rock) are also in the cast. Russell Brand is, so far as we know, not providing the voices for the orphan girls. Expect the film in 2010.

    The Incredible Hulk (2008) – 27 Second Review

    The Incredible Hulk movie poster

    Written by: Zak Penn & Edward Norton
    Directed by: Louis Leterrier
    Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson

    Review: This movie has gotten bad reviews from critics due to the lack of a worthy storyline and any deep character development. These people go to movies for different reasons than I do. The effects were quite nice, the splode was kickass, and the splode was kickass. Did I mention the splode? Well, I meant to. It was kickass.

    Time: 16 seconds

    The Incredible Hulk (2008) – Movie Review

    The Incredible Hulk movie poster

    Beyond Believability: The Incredible Hulk

    Written by: Zak Penn & Edward Norton
    Directed by: Louis Leterrier
    Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson

    First, the revamp of the new Hulk franchise has some promising things going for it. A FEW. The Banner/Hulk back story is cleverly covered in the opening credits sparing the audience from a tired drama tinged rehash that we’ve been through before. There also some clever cameos by Stan Lee, Lou Ferrigno and even the very dead Bill Bixby.

    But the biggest problem that The Incredible Hulk must overcome however is not the military, gamma radiation or even his broken heart, but the amazingly shallow storyline he’s been stuck with.

    Once again we are treated to a comic book film that demeans the intelligence of the audience by throwing together a story with such minimal character development that it drowns under an avalanche of big booms, CGI gimmickry and impotent drama.

    Fight Club (1999) – Movie Review

    Fight Club movie poster

    Written by: Jim Uhls, based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk
    Directed by: David Fincher
    Starring: Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, Jared Leto

    My Advice: Don’t miss it.

    The narrator (Norton) of our story has a bit of a problem. He seems to be caught in a sleepless life-crippling malaise that threatens his spiritual well-being. In other words, he can’t get no satisfaction. Out of the drab void that surrounds him steps Tyler Durden (Pitt), a very strange man who sells soap. After even stranger circumstances leave the two rooming together, Durden suggests that they, just for a lark, try pounding the shit out of each other. And they actually like it. It makes them feel alive. This thing they’ve started doing for kicks strikes a chord in other men, too, because by the time the narrator turns around they’ve got spectators, then more participants, and then Tyler starts to draw up the rules…
