The Wind Rises and maybe Better Living Through Chemistry.
Anything that makes Jane Fonda work more is fine by me, J.Lo. be damned.
I don't care what any of these movies are, a lot of these posters are pretty damned solid. I love movie posters. They have so much promise! So what if most of them will be terrible? That's art for the wall.
The cast for Blood Ties is pretty great. And any Studio Ghibli film can have my money.
Blood Ties and Better Living through Chemistry have my interest but not to the point of must see. Mockingjay is a must see based less on the poster and more on the books and previous films, especially Catching Fire.
if we're going on only the posters and pretending I hadn't seen the shitty trailers. Robocop for sure, that poster is fucking awesome.
Oh, and the RoboCop poster is kind of cool, but nothing is getting me to see that impending train wreck.
I was going to say it'd be worth a $1.50 redbox rental, and then I saw it was going to be PG-13. WTF?
Yeah, I don't understand that at all. You're wasting both RoboCop and Samuel L. Jackson on a PG-13 movie.
As someone who hasn't read the books, I'm wondering if Mockingjay actually needs to be split into two parts or if they're just following in the footsteps of the final Harry Potter, Twilight films?
I disagree with Jenn on this. I don't see any reason Mockingjay had to be made into 2 movies, and I just see it as a cash grab. At least the final HP book was bulky enough to justify its division.
While in one sense, it is slower than the other books, it does also contain the war. Katniss wasn't directly fighting the war, but depending on how they decide to treat those scenes, and how much they show outside of what is happening directly to Katniss, it could definitely make sense. Also, Peeta is at the Capital so once again, they could actually show what is happening to him which would take longer than Katniss just getting a quick summary of what has been done to him. So I would say it can be justified but it's probably a combination of the two.
I want to see a few of these but the Miyazaki actually made me feel warm inside. Cannot wait.
God dammit just let Robocop be not bad!!!! I don't need it to b great just don't fuck it up beyond recognition. Better living through chemistry looks like it could be cool. Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde are always good.
Yeah, good luck with that Robocop thing.
I scrolled down, said, "no, no, no, would rather freeze to death, no, no, no, n - THE WIND RISES!' So yes.
I don't know about posters but-... Oh, no wait, yes I do: The Wind Rises.Aside from that, the combination of Sam Rockwell makes me feel warm all over as well as inside..
First of all, apologies for using annoying internet speak, but sometimes it's truly the only way to express something: that Oculus poster needs to die in all the fires.
The windchill is -4° right now, so Mockingjay, because it has fire on it and I am cold and took the question literally.
Oh, shit! Ray Liota and Clive Owen? Tough call. I'm going to have to go with Mockingjay.
Not even a close contest. Miyazaki for the win.
Jesus, The Wind Rises wins this easily.
But I'll freely admit that Better Living Through Chemistry gives me a fun early 1960's, Pillow Talk-era feel.
And JANE MOTHERFUCKING FONDA.
Oh hey is that Clive Owen??? Yaaayyyy! Blood Ties can have my money!
Blood Ties looks like an amazing cast in a movie of no interest to me. Occupies is creepy as well, but not my bag.
Gotta be The Wind Rises. Though I'll miss the magical elements of my favorite Ghibli films.
That bag man movie looks hilarious. Wait, what? It isn't supposed to be a comedy. Oh...
The Wind Rises.
1 for 9 ain't bad.
I want to see that movie, but I also kind of want to live in that poster. It's so beautiful and serene.
I was going to say none of the above until I hit the Studio Ghibli poster.
Also, I can't believe they're remaking Endless Love. It sucked the first time around.
My friends & I saw Endless Love in Times Square and laughed through the entire thing.
Not remaking, remade. As in DONE DEAL. As in FEBRUARY RELEASE. As in T-20 DAYS.
That's what I came down to say. Ugh! The first Endless Love made me realize I wasn't like my peers. I couldn't believe people thought it was romantic.
Oh mi GOD, emmalita, are you saying that this: "But in the end the passion for his first love is too strong and she has to leave or this love will kill both of them" doesn't sound totally dreamy to you?? You heartless shrew.
No, no. I'm not heartless. I've been diagnosed as having a "tiny, dried-up, shriveled little raisin of a heart." The movie came out when I was 12. One of my friends gave me a rapturous blow by blow account of the plot. I listened in growing horror. After my friend left, my mother committed one of her finest acts of mothering. She told that I was right, the relationship in Endless Love sounded abusive, not romantic. So there!
Thank you for the clarification re: the existence of your heart. We have amended your status from "heartless shrew" to "unfeeling hag" accordingly.
Full disclosure: I'd never heard of the movie before today. From what I can clean from wikipedia and imdb, it sounds like a hokey but possibly entertaining psychological thriller. Kind of like Fatal Attraction, but different. Which could maybe lead to interesting questions about the relative creepiness of bunny boiling vs. house burning, and how the characters' genders effect our views of their actions.
We have amended your status from "heartless shrew" to "unfeeling hag" accordingly.
But... but... Emm upvotes even the silliest of my posts, so she can't be unfeeling. Unwise, perhaps...
It's a mystery. Wrapped in an enigma.
She's definitely mysterious. Why, I've learned that her real name may not even be Emmalita! ZOMG!!
I accept unfeeling hag.
Imagine if Fatal Attraction were packaged as a grand romantic ideal and the characters were 30 years younger. That would be Endless Love.
"NO. Don't you do that. Don't you say your goodbyes. You're going to go on. You're going to live, and you're going to fake lots of babies, and die an old lady, warm in someone's bed. Say you will, Alex. You must do me this minute. I mean, this honor."
Now I have a sick feeling that I'll have to watch this cinematic masterpiece eventually.
Not if you know what's good for you.
This isn't the sort of thing you want to do alone. Get wine and like-minded friends. Enjoy an evening of mocking, pointing, and laughing.
Now that DOES sound better than how I watched it (crouched behind the couch, holding my breath, parents thinking I was in bed). The wine, especially, is an upgrade.
I would require either wine or a lobotomy before watching Endless Love. I shouldn't single out Endless Love. There are several movies on that list.
It's been a long day.
