Depp as Wonka

I just saw the trailer for this and I have to admit that my first impression is that Depp is not right for Wonka. The first movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was definitive for the Wonka role. Gene Wilder will never be surpassed nor even compared to. It makes me sad.

What needs to be made is a movie about Galactus or The Beyonder that contains many superheroes in it.

I have just watched the original version of the Manchrian Candidate. I liked it. I will watch the remake eventually but I am in no hurry. I can wait to see it when it is available on Netflix.

Dead Like Me

I was at Hollywood video browsing the new release wall and some covers with the grim reaper on them caught my attention. The first season of a show that I had never heard of entitled Dead Like Me has been released on DVD. I read the blurb on the back and was intrigued. It reminded me of an episode o...

The Name Of The Rose

This movie just came out on DVD finally. It is one of my favorites. I think that Sean Connery gives a terrific performance as the super-sleuthy monk William of Baskerville. Check it out.

I am glad to hear that this went well. I wanted to have been there. I am excited to hear about the extra footage. I am going to have to buy a second copy of this movie when that version is released on DVD. C'est la vie. I will try to catch this at a theater near me.

Life Of Brian to be re-released

This may be old news for some but Monty Python's The Life Of Brian will be re-released in selected theaters soon. This will mark the 25th anniversary of this classic film. I am sure that the success of "The Passion" had something to do with their decision. I would like to see this in the theater. I ...

Favorite director with five or more movies?

I think that Terry Gilliam is amazing. I find his movies to be absolutely breathtaking. Very visual. Very cerebral. Very well done.

My five favorite of his:
1 The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
2 Brazil
3 12 Monkeys
4 Time Bandits
5 Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

Thanks for that list. I am growing very dissappointed with the AFI list. Some of these movies are not really moving me at all. Why are they so great?

Star Wars Trilogy DVD Release Date

September 21st, 2004.

I think episodes IV - VI are incredible movies. The prequels have been such a huge disappointment.

I love me a modern movie but I do have an appreciate for the older ones too. The majority of the movies in my top 100 list would be from the last ten years.

I never saw Cabin Fever but I did see Drawing Flies which probably was far less popular and had fewer rentals. Drawing flies is a great Soundgarden song but a very poor View Askew affiliate.
