    I just saw an ad for it the other day, looks good and I'll probably go see it. (I haven't been to the movie theatre in a long time! About 6 months or so.)

    Saw the preview last night. It looks good. I don't know though that hitchhikers guide to the galazy looks more appealing.

    hell...im going to both. My wife loved hitchhikers...I thought it was ok, but not the best I have read. Either way, I love scifi and it's rare to get her to go to a scifi with me. Kingdom of heaven looked good, worth the ticket.

    For those who are unfamiliar with the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe, we can get you up to speed quickly; all you really need to remember is that the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything is.......42.

    I"m with ya bro. I can't wait to see this.

    I'm also pretty excited about Hitchhikers Guide as I'm a big Douglas Adams fan. Should be fun.

    I haven't even heard of Kingdom of Heaven. Guess I'll head over to IMDB

    I'm hoping Episode 3 is far better than 1 and 2. Even though the original star wars movies were made over 25 years ago those were far better than 1 and 2 were. That goes to show you that technology can't make up for a bad script and even worse acting.

    DUDE... Let me just say, I'm NOT really a StarWars fan. Of course, I've seen all the movies though. How can you grow up and NOT have seen them? hehe

    Anyways, yes, epsisode 1 and 2 where HORRIBLE.. (I actually fell asleep during episode 2, had to rewind it and watch again.. it was so frickin boring and dry, and confusing/didn't explain things well enough)

    Now then.. that trailer for episode 3.. HOLY CRAP! That looks like the BEST of any of the movies! Wow! It just looks visually beautiful, and it just looks like it will be an *awesome* movie! Like I said, this is coming from someone who is *not* a starwars fan! I'm actually pretty excited to go and see that now after seeing the trailer!

    Old George needs to remember that its all about the storytelling and not how many digital effects or fully digitized characeters he can get on screen. Episodes 1 and 2 were some of the worst movies I ever saw, period. If Episode 3 does not severly rock, I may just forget that the orgional Star Wars were so good.

    On the Kingdom of Heaven movie, I havent seen anything about this and the site will not load. I take it forom what I can see its about the Crusades? If so, do we know if this is going to have any historical accuracy or merit to it at all? I ask because I am always skeptical when movies, ecspecially when made by the huge studios, tread on Christian History. True, Luther was very well done, but that was a small Indy film.

    I actually shudder when I think about the ability of these studios to essentially re-write the Crusades as they see fit, ecspecially when the general public has little, if any idea of what really happened anyway.

    If its not about the Crusades, just ignore me and carry on.

    Yaeh it's about the Crusades and I don't think it will be even close to historically true. But it does look cool as hell.

    Star Wars III is the one I am dying to see. The trailer looks awsome. A couple things you guys may not have known.

    First the third Star Wars is going to be much more darker, more violent then any of the others. Lucas said he would not let his kids go see it. It has a more adult script.

    Second is that while there will be no more movies, Lucas is coning out with a live action TV series (like Young Indiana Jones or Star Trek NG). It will take place between the third and fourth movies. He also is trying to make the clones wars cartoon 3D.

    As for the new movies compard to the old. In the first three the story was simple: little guy takes on big guy and wins. Simple. But the second set is about political menuvers, trade blockaids,. And if you put the two movies side by side you will notice that the first three have less going on during a scene. It was usually three actors and one prop or something. But in the more recent films there is always a hundred things moving at once.
    I saw Empire Strikes Back this weekend and it seemed "less" then the last two films. I know many here will disagree, but I saw every one in the theatre so I was there for all the hoopla. And I don't think any human being alive could have meet the expectations that the World felt before they saw the Phantom Mence. Everyone thought the Second Coming of Christ was happening in '99, before the movie came out.

    I agree with you in that nothing could have lived up to the Hype, but the Phantom Menace was just aganizing to watch. Even with all of the "set-up" story that had to be told, I just thought it sucked IMO.

    Star Wars is too much a myth now. Much as I agree that Episodes I and II were bad, it would be impossible to live up to the myth that Vader has become. You can't beat the imagery of those huge Star Destroyers. They look like a plausible future, but still resemble the ships we know in our own time, with gun turrets and the like. The new films are too visually divorced from the originals to get that same vibe. Add that in with some seriously bad acting and weak story and you've got a problem.

    One friend of mine pointed out that in these more recent films Lucas knows he's making three films, so each one doesn't have to be as self contained. Which is why scenes drag on and on, and there's so much setup of the story to come and too little time spent on the story at hand. Plus budget contraints probably forced Lucas in a direction he would not have gone if he'd had more money available. If he had a comparable budget back then you can bet all three originals would have been muppet festivals.

    I've rewatched the originals, and they hold up because they have good, simple stories and tolerable to good acting. Each one is also enough of a story in and of itself to hold up as a movie and not just a really long prelude to another movie.

    Has anyone seen Sin City? It moves almost too quickly, but I loved it. It's just so over the top and sylized, but done well. Marv is bad ass!

    Frank Miller wrote the graphic novel. And if you think Sin City was good check out Dark Knight Returns. Frank Miller does Batman, but Batman at 55yrs old. And he is one hardcore motherf@#ker. Beats the piss outa Superman

    Kingdom of Heaven will be good. Pretty much anything that Ridley Scott directs is good.

    Is that a feature length animated movie (Dark Night Returns)? I used to watch the Batman Beyond cartoon series back in the day (I still watch cartoons now) and it rocked. Id defiantly pick up the movie if I can find it.

    I saw the stuff on the live action TV show... looks pretty cool if its done well... I like StarTrek Enterprise for that very reason... very good scripts and good acting and good visuals... a shame its going off the air

    And yes I saw the stuff on Episode 3, how it is a MUCH more violent and DARK movie... jeezus christ guys, if you havent seen the trailer, you REALLY need too... both of them in fact... they send chills down my spine lol...
    When I was a kid, Darth Vader was the biggest baddest mofo ever... and we get to see him at his best and get to see why he got that title in the first place
    The pics of the Emperor remind me of some horror flicks... very well done trailer at least... very very dark

    It's a book. I'm a big fan of superhero cartoons as well. While nothing beats X-Men and Batman:TAS in my book, Justice League is probably the best cartoon on right now.

    Saladin is right it's a book. But if you can find Batman episode Legends of the Dark Knight, it is one of the mini-stories.

    And if anyone is intrested I would recommend a few trades (groupings of single issues of comic books). I got the two larger reviews off Amazon.

    1. 100 Bullets: the coolest comic of all time.If you were given a gun and 100 bullets that were completely untraceable, would you use them? What if the man that gave them to you told you that anything you do with them would be completely above the law? Even if you were caught in the act, the Police would just let you go....
    This is the premise behind 100 Bullets. Agent Graves gives people a chance for revenge against someone who did them wrong......but what's in it for him...?


    2. Watchman:New York Times best seller. One of the greatest stories I have ever read.

    3. V for Vendetta.: A frightening and powerful story of the loss of freedom and identity in a totalitarian world, V for Vendetta takes place in an alternate future in which Germany wins WWII and Britain becomes a fascist state. A vigilante named "V" stalks the streets of London trying to free England of its ideological chains. Moore's poetic language coupled with Lloyd's eerie, washed-out color art makes this a captivating read sure to stay with you

    Trust me. Any one of these stories is a winner. But the 100Bullets takes you about two or three trades to get what is really happening...maybe
