m0rpheus writes, There’s a new trailer out for the Final Fantasy movie here. You can view it in three diffrent resolutions. It seems to be more focused on the plot this time, as opposed to the cg last time. Now if only they’d use something other than QuickTime, so us Linux users could watch…
Like they’d let the year 2001 pass without a re-release of the Stanley Kubrick classic.
Those of us in the States might not be able to see it for a while, though; the current re-release schedule only lists London (1/1/2001) and Berlin (2/18/2001) explicitly. All things being equal, though, I think Warner would be foolish to not schedule something next year.
Yeah, I know, it’s been out for a while, but I really really like the anime thriller “Prefect Blue.” And since it’s been recently released on DVD, and recently re-reviewed, and it’s my Web site, well, nyahh nyahh.
It’s not news. It’s just weird. It’s Dan’s SciFaiku Review-O-Rama. Dig it.
Those of you with more bandwidth than I can go eyeball the trailer for the D&D movie (presently expected to hit theatres in early December) by visiting the movie’s site. I hope it’s got half-orcs. :-)
It’s nice to know that movie studios have their priorities in the right place.
“E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” the tear-jerking tale of a boy and his alien, will be re-released in 2002 for its 20th anniversary. Why mention this now? Because the toys are already being announced. Maybe they’ll go dig up some of those five million extra copies of the Atari 2600 E.T. game that were supposedly buried in the desert and sell them too…
Maybe not sci-fi in the traditional sense, but this AP story points out that there’s a lot of new/recent movies with Satan as the guest star. Coincidence, or part of his infernal master plan? Hmm…
The beautiful woman is, of course, Angelina Jolie, who plays Lara Croft in the upcoming “Tomb Raider” movie (adapted from the ridiculously popular series of video games). The beautiful scenery is Angkor Wat, a famous and truly stunning temple complex in Cambodia. Put ’em together and you get permission from the government of the latter to film the former.
Given the political climate of Cambodia, and the political hoops that were likely jumped through to make this happen, was it really worth it? Is this small touch of authenticity worth the money and time and political favours that were likely necessary?
