Favorite movie of all time: Baron Von Munchausen. 

General Stuart will love you for life.

And I, for one, want no part of it!

...Odd that he and I share that taste.  I've never met anyone else who really loves it.

He wants to dress up as him for Dragon*Con next year, of course, in the fancy coat he's wearing in the court of the Grand Turk. FML.

Really? I'm kind of surprised by that.
I mean, it IS a Gilliam joint, his films are generally universally praised.

Yeah, but BvM is his least liked film, I am reliably informed.

A bit more details on "Alien 0" the prequel done by Ridley Scott.  Quick overview:

-Set 30 years before Alien
-Female lead, not Sigourney Weaver
-potentially teaming with H.R. Giger to redesign the alien
-focuses on space jockey from the first movie
-2011/2012 projected release date

Also did some more research on Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and The Yiddish Poliemen's Union.  My guess is they're both stuck in development hell, as they keep getting their dates pushed back year after year.

Shinya Tsukamoto made another Iron Man film.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0X4CIFLbzc

I'm pumped. It looks a little bit more contemporary than the last two (not 100% japanese, and also shot in hi-def).
Even if its just a remake of the first Iron Man film, at least Shinya Tsukamoto is handling itself instead of let Hollywood shit all over it.

First, just let me extend my apologies to Nigel for bumping this thread, but I couldn't find the other movie thread. But...

Just saw Idiocrocy last night, and as funny as it was, it seems like it only took about five years from the time the film was released for us to get about half-way to what that movie is like. Funny, yes. But also very, very scary...

(although, it made me think that I might be able to actually run for office, that is, if I change my middle name to "Mountain Dew.")

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Saw Iron man today. RDJr is good, but the plot was pretty damn weak, especially the stuff about him dying of whatever poisoning.

I saw it too. I agree with the poisoning bit, but I thought it was pretty good overall.

Well my main beef with the first film was that the action and bad guy were completely boring, I'm sick of big fights on highways.
This time both the action and RDJr mincing about entertained me.

I liked how the end fight was totally reminiscent of a multiplayer first person shooter game. "BOOM!" "You see that?" "Yeah, nice." I lol'd.
Mickey Rourke wasn't bad at all, either.

I'm glad he is getting work again, he was really good in sin city and the wrestler.

It's been a while since I saw Sin City, and I had wanted to see The Wrestler but never got around to it. I'ma have to rent those or something.
