Mundane Movie Monster Mondays

Welcome back to MMB for your 
bi-weekly injection of  movie news! 
Don't worry, the needle is sterile.

Anne Hathaway rides the Batpod

The Dark Knight Rises had its last block of shooting this weekend and this means more videos and shots on Youtube! ( She can ride my bike if...ahum nevermind! )

Christopher Nolan's production moves from Pittsburgh to New York. Next is a video with the action in fullspeed, and slowed down at certain moments to take a good hard look at Hathaway's driving skills.

Machine Gun Preacher trailer online

A trailer appeared for Machine Gun Preacher, the biopic of a drugs dealer becoming an aid worker, with Gerard Butler as Sam Childers. This is Sudan? 

The film tells the story of Sam Childers, a bike riding drugs dealer who redeems himself and becomes a humanitarian aid worker in Sudan. But can he keeps his hands clean when a rebel army are knocking on the towns doors? This is the official synopsis:

"When ex-biker-gang member Sam Childers (Gerard Butler) makes the life-changing decision to go to East Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war, he is outraged by the unspeakable horrors faced by the region’s vulnerable populace, especially the children. 

Ignoring the warnings of more experienced aid workers, Sam breaks ground for an orphanage where it’s most needed--in the middle of territory controlled by the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army, a renegade militia that forces youngsters to become soldiers before they even reach their teens. But for Sam, it is not enough to shelter the LRA’s intended victims.

Determined to save as many as possible, he leads armed missions deep into enemy territory to retrieve kidnapped children, restoring peace to their lives--and eventually his own."

The film is directed by Mark Forster( Quantum Of Solace) and will be released on November 18.

Miramax Makes Film Deal With Facebook

As Universal started the process of selling their feature-length films via Facebook( The Big Lebowski ) so the other companies can't stay behind empty-handed.

Miramax has partnered with Facebook and together they will launch Miramax Experience, an app hat will allow users worldwide to watch movie clips and  films from the studio. Hollywood Studios are seeing some money mountains in social media.

The price for a rental film? Only 30 Facebook credits ($3), but Miramax said there are plans to sell the movies digitally. [Insert Pulp Fiction quote right here]

Crappy Toilet Movie Reviews

This is a new sequence in which we discuss a crap movie that has been released into the jaws of the theatres. I will be doing these reviews on my toilet so let's put those butt muscles to work! Also, they will be pretty short too!

Conan The Antidisestablishmentarian

Jason Momoa from Stargate Atlantis/ Game Of Thrones? Awesome! He's the perfect man to play Conan The Barbarian. And he is!! But other things screwed up this movie. Let's put them in a list!

- Post-Conversion 3D ( This 3D-version of this movie is worthless! WORTHLESS! It's Clash Of The Titans all over again.
- Terrible fucking overacting from Stephen Lang and Rose McGowan. The dialogues are made of stone and wood, and not the ones you can build a house with. If there's a world record of overacting, well these two certainly reached the top charts! ( WARNING: The other dialog is fine! I only had trouble with these two!!
- Trashcan characters like Rachel Nichol'character. What the hell? Only in the movie for a cheap f***
- too less Ron Perlman and Saïd Taghmaoui

This is probably going to be the second 3D-movie from Millenium and Nu Image that's not worth a theatre visit( first one being Drive Angry)

Conclusion: If you like FX, swords, magic, action and Conan you might have a little bit of fun. But really don't expect a blockbuster movie.
Beware! It's not a trainwreck, Jason Momoa is pretty good as Conan, he aint got the charisma of Arnold but still pretty good. I just did not like this movie. I would give it a 5/10 what means a meh, nobody cares. Don't spend your moviebucks on it.

25 opmerkingen:

  1. I've heard OF shotgun preacher, but not much about it.

  2. ive been hearing so much about the newest dark knight o,O must be because its the last one?

  3. Machinegun preacher sounds awesome. a biker gang member in africa with bazookas? Sign me in.

  4. it would be nice to be a batpod =)
    also, from the synopsis and the trailer, MGP looks like a good one.

  5. I loved MACHINE GUN PREACHER, which promises more than I firstly expected, but I think you were overly harsh towards CONAN, the film isn't a master piece but it wasn't bad either. You fanboys just love trashing epics all the time :) Most of them are already hating IMMORTALS and JOHN CARTER even though they haven't even seen them yet :)

  6. Anne Hathway riding the bike- I will remember this one when I watch the movie.

  7. Nice to know, won't be seeing Conan now lol

  8. I feel like there aren't enough movies with guns in them right now. I think hollywood should pull their heads out, and get some guns in their movies/

  9. That Preacher trailer has me interested and I may not be watching Conan now.LOL

  10. The Machine Gun Preacher trailer looks great.

  11. "Machine Gun Preacher?"

    Sounds like a sequel to "Hobo with a Shotgun"

  12. What do you mean by "hard look"? O_o

  13. MGP looks like it might be good
    also, LOL The Dawg

  14. Been looking forward to watching Dark Knight Rises for some time now.

  15. The Catwoman costume looks kind of better? But I think I'll skip Conan.

  16. LOL at Conan: 10 million raised... 80 to go :D
