the film criticism aspect of cyber | by maryann johanson

bias update

obsession: still Doctor Who (most recent episode blogging: “Midnight” — yes, I’m behind)
boyfriend: David Tennant as the Doctor (see my summer of Tennant and Hamlet)
psyched: absolutely nothing (because it’s the dead end of summer)
dreading: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (what, the first one wasn’t torture enough?)
enemy: Eddie Murphy, and everyone else responsible for Meet Dave, you bastards

    At the very least how can you not be psyched for Watchmen? Sure, it’s ages away but better than nothing right?

  • JT

    I’m psyched for Pineapple Express, but I can understand why you wouldn’t be.

    I’m psyched for *The Hobbit,* too, but it’s too exhausting to be Officially Psyched too far in advance. I generally don’t look further out than a month or so for the movies I’m psyched for and dreading.

  • Ryan

    Any thoughts on the imminent arrival of the pop fabricated junk called ‘Twilight’ that apparently has captured the attention of a young and woefully under-read generation?

    (not that I’m biased)

    “The Midnight Meat Train”, which I saw at the Fantasia Festival last week, is opening in limited release on August 1st, and I’m hoping it will play here so I can see it again because I loved it. I don’t think you’re too enthusiastic about horror films, though, right?

  • Hdj

    I second “Midnight Meat Train” I need something to hold me over till the Saw 5

  • Ide Cyan

    The Saw franchise utterly bores me.

  • Hdj

    oh, well they always have the Hostel films to fall back on, if the Saw films come to a end.

    I love horror films. I hate torture porn, though.

  • Ide Cyan

    There’s a chance you might like it, then. It’s dark and gory, and very violent, but it isn’t torture porn. Although, heh, it’s odd that the meaning generally associated to the torture porn label is not quite fitting for some Clive Barker-related works like the early Hellraiser films, which associate torture and pleasure.

    Hdj: I have no interest in the Hostel films, either.

  • Hdj

    What dont you like about the Hostel films? I’m really hoping for a 3rd one. I really like how the Hostels are filmed in Europe and have extreme gore that really push the envelope on what they can get away with.
    I do remember hearing Clive Barker had something to do with Meat train. A short story right? I mainly want to see what kinda of scare factor it goes for. Not so much the Hellraiser feel Barker puts in to his movies. I also want to see how good Vinnie Jones can pull off the part of unstoppable maniac killer.
