The Pacific…

Posted in Movie Trailers, Movies, Television, TV Episodes on June 22, 2009 by Matt

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg present The Pacific, a miniseries on HBO focusing on American soldiers and the war against the Empire of Japan.  From what I’ve seen in the preview (below), it will be told in a similar fashion as Band of Brothers and focus on the lives of certain U.S. soldiers.

Every year, I get in this mood to watch Saving Private Ryan (which I watched the other day).  And after I do that, I usually watch Band of Brothers (which I’m probably going to start doing in the next day or so), so I was extremely excited to watch the preview today, because a friend of mine was telling me about it and I actually never heard that they were making this miniseries.  The Pacific which stars Joseph Mazzello (Jurassic Park — that’s right, the kid), James Badge Dale (24), and Jon Seda; and is expected to premier March 2010 and will consist of 10 (one-hour) episodes.

Here is the sneak peak trailer that premiered last night on Entertainment Tonight (ET).

Click here.

*I can’t stand it when people talk in a movie theater.  That’s kind of how I felt with ET talking during the preview, something that I’ve been waiting to see for a while.  Hopefully QT will go ahead and release the full-length trailer, so I don’t have to listen to those ‘bastards‘ talk during it.

The Adventures of Tintin (Update!)…

As I said earlier this month, I am very excited to see the new Tintin movie (the full name of the movie is now: ‘The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn‘).  Well the news gets even better, word on the street is that Jamie Bell (‘Undertow’, ‘King Kong’, ‘Defiance’) will be playing Tintin and Daniel Craig (‘Casino Royale’, ‘Quantum of Solace’, ‘Defiance’) will be playing the pirate Red Rackham, one of the villains in the series.  But wait, it gets even better.  A few screenwriters that have climbed aboard the adventure include: Edgar Wright (‘Shaun of the Dead’, ‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Spaced’), Joe Cornish (‘The Adam and Joe Show’ and Edgar Wright’s upcoming movie ‘Ant-Man’), and Steven Moffat (‘Doctor Who’).  Also set to be in the movie are: Toby Jones, Eric Stoltz, and Mackenzie Crook.

I guess I didn’t realize this, but Steven Spielberg will be directing the first film and Peter Jackson will be directing the second feature.  There are plans for a third film, but it is currently unknown as to who will be sitting in the director’s chair.

Here is the episode ‘Cigars of the Pharaoh‘.

The Adventures of Tintin…

The Adventures of Tintin was an animated series that I genuinely enjoyed as a little kid.  Upon hearing that Steven Spielberg would be directing and Peter Jackson producing an animated feature using motion-capture technology, I couldn’t help but smile in anticipation to start reading more news about the film.  I was even more excited to hear that Andy Serkis, better known as Gollum/Smeagol from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will be playing Tintin’s friend Captain Haddock.  But what really topped it for me was when I heard that Thomson and Thompson, two bumbling detectives that serve as the comic relief, will be played by none other than Nick Frost and Simon Pegg.  Like I said, I will be looking forward to seeing any upcomig news on the film.

Death to Red Shirts…

Posted in Television, TV Episodes on December 26, 2008 by Matt

I’m not a Star Trek fan at all, but I stumbled across this video and thought it was pretty funny.  What’s a “red shirt”, you ask?  It’s a character on the show, who wears a red shirt…and is sent down on missions with the main characters.  On these missions it is expected of these “red shirts” to die, in order to ensure the major characters safety.  I was first introduced to the concept of “red shirts” on the show Lost, where background characters drop like flies.  This video is a compilation of most, if not all, of the “red shirts” that die over the original series’ run.  Pretty ridiculous…

Three “red shirts” lose their lives in the span of 10 seconds on the show Lost…

[Spoilers if you haven’t watched Season 4 yet]

X-Men Origins: Wolverine…

Posted in Animation, Comics, Movie Trailers, Movies, Music, TV Episodes on December 15, 2008 by Matt

Here’s the trailer for the new Wolverine movie.  I’m not too sure how I feel about the movie yet  The first half of the trailer is pretty strong,  setting up the movie to be about a war-torn Wolverine driven to seek out revenge for the death of his girlfriend.  The other half of the trailer focuses on showing action scene, after action scene, while also featuring the variety of different characters that will be in the movie.  Some of the characters include: a young William Stryker (from the second X-Men movie), Sabertooth, Deadpool, The Blob, Gambit, and some others I’m unsure about.  The last time I saw a number of mutants in a single film was Brett Ratner’s take on the X-Men universe….we all know how that worthless excuse for a movie turned out.   Well, enough on what I have to say about the movie, check out the trailer at MySpace.  What did you think?

-The song in the first half of the trailer is “The Surface of the Sun” by John Murphy.  It is a piece used in Danny Boyle’s 2007 movie Sunshine.

Why the hell not?  Here’s the awesome intro to the X-Men animated series.
