Well I figured this one was going to totally suck, because I liked the first one and all. Anyway, Jason Statham is reprising his role, thank god. Bacon rocks. And this one looks pretty good. I got a hint from the trailer that the plot isn't very straightforward. It does seem a bit over-the-top, even exploitative in its use of women (note the one nearly naked assassain chick, especially), and the music on the trailer was that pop metal crap I'm sick of. Anyway, what do you expect? We're lucky to get anything decent in a high budget hollywood action flick these days. They're taking it too far.
A Sound of Thunder
Now if I'm not mistaken, this movie has been coming for a long fucking time. I thought I saw a trailer for this over a year ago. Also, it seems to be loosely based on an old short scifi story by Ray Bradbury. Awesome. Anyway, it looks like it might be good, but somewhat typical hollywood scifi/action flick.
ooo John Singleton. Granted, this is the guy who brought us 2 Fast 2 Furious. But he was also behind Higher Learning and Poetic Justice. Hmm! Anyway, this movie looks surprisingly good! I'm actually pretty excited to see it sometime.
Woot! That guy I like! Philip Seymour Hoffman! Anyway, this looks reallly quite good. Hoffman is great as usual, and seems to have been given a chance to step outside the usual persona we see him act. Sweet.
Aww look, isn't this cute? It's the freekin sequel to Jumanji or something. Eh.
