Teutonic Tuesday

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

Yeah, you kinda know what's coming next , right? This episode of FilmState was so good. Even better than...well...[ awkward pause ]...uhm... Let's watch it!

  Lion King in full 3D

The Lion King returns to theatres on Sept. 16 and with specially designed 3D glasses.  Is this really neccessary or will it change the lives of a new generation? I don't know. Wait and see we shall. ( And if you don't get it: This was a reference to George Lucas screwing up his beloved "Sixology" with fancy shmancy 3D FX) Modern Warfare 3

The Lion King grossed more than $783 million worldwide. Additionally, Disney reports that the DVD is the best-selling home entertainment release of all time. So the special two-week theatrical extravaganza will serve as a strong launch pad for the Oct. 4 release of the movie in high-definition Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D.

“The all-new 3D format immerses viewers in the epic settings and puts them face-to-face with these beloved characters,” said Bob Chapek, president of distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s the must-see, must-own title for everyone.”

Bob, let's hope you're right. Will this be the start of a whole bunch of disney classics turning into 3D? Sign me up for 101 Dalmatians. I will be blind at the end of the movie because of the black and whiteness but hey, who cares.

New Muppets pictures online

It seems we have an excessive pack of old kid shows coming at your screen today. More Muppet pictures have appeared online and these confirm that Kermit will perform a banjo musical number. Hopefully this will succeed whereas The Smurfs have failed.

Rumour TDKR: Bane will have a voice box

Tom Hardy's Bane will sound scarier than Uwe Boll directing a film called Auschwitz ( Seriously, what is wrong with that guy http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1722426/), a combination of Germany's worst events. alright, i liked Postal but just as a mindless movie, nothing more. Back to quality movies! 

The actor is apparently using a voice box to control the pitch and tone of Bane's villainous vocals.
Bane's voice needs to be intimidating, to match Bale's intense delivery of Batman's lines, as the characters are supposed to be equals in the terror stakes. 
I'm expecting a face-to-face growl battle between Batman and Bane to decide who growls the best. And then they'll start a heavy metalcore band named Batman & Bane's Broseph's, playing in the finest clubs and bars in Gotham City. Boomshakawaka.

James Cameron on Titanic 3D

James Cameron has spoken to Techradar.com ans answered some of our questions on The 3D-conversion of Titanic. Again, neccessary or waste of time? I've seen that boat sink three times in my life, I don't need this. I don't wanna be on that boat, i wanna be in Pandora.

Techrader interviewed Cameron and asked him some questions on the upcoming re-release of Titanic 3D. On the 3d-conversion process, he said: really don’t enjoy the process."

“While Vince [Pace – co-founder of the Cameron-Pace Group for 3D tech] and I sit gleefully watching our 3D images being shot, a conversion is the exact opposite.

“I am five months in so the artists are becoming good and starting to read my mind a little, so it has become easier, but I still sit there with the jog wheel and look through the movie frame by frame and make notes on depth.

“That should be closer, that should be further back, there's not enough full depth here, there is not enough volume on that shoulder, a little more volume on that urn in the background, see that chair in the background on the left, no the other one on the left, that one needs to come forward another six inches… when the captain stands up we have to do an interlocular dynamic, da da, da da, da da… it's fricking endless!

“It's a mind-numbing process; it's like mowing the lawn with a toenail clipper.”

“Clash Of The Titans was a classic mistake. They tried to make 3D a post-production process like sound editing and that doesn't work. The film-maker has to be involved and it takes time and good money to do a proper conversion.”

  The Walking Dead Poster Online

 Great, now i want to hear Wye Oak - Civilian again. I fell in love with the song because of The Walking Dead trailer. If you want to read more about it, go to this link http://hollywood-spy.blogspot.com/2011/09/new-walking-dead-poster-highlander.html

Apologies for the laziness! It's getting quite late for me and my hands are shaking just out of sheer excitement for The Walking Dead. Go play some Dead Island to get prepared. I know i will


Doctor Who is awesome


I've been giving this show a LOT of credit but i just love it. The second part of series six has already started and this week's episode will air Saturday, on BBC One and BBC America. I was planning to write a complete review but i forgot to do it. Here's the trailer to episode four.

Alright, it's time to end this post. And yes, we're going to end it with a smile. Zinger, a Belgian pop (‘copy paste pop’. ) band, recently won a big contest. I had to share this because the lead singer was one of my English teachers. Enjoy!

15 opmerkingen:

  1. thanks for the linky ;)
    Can't wait to see both THE WALKING DEAD and Miss Piggy although it sounds like a strange mix :)

  2. Yay Kermit! A bit hard to read that black text in the middle though.

  3. Messy post today, again, my apologies! I fixed it

  4. I'm certain that the Muppets will succeed where the Smurfs failed.

    Walking Dead will also be successful.

  5. lion king .. in 3D... my childhood we'll be brought back and will have a meaning now...

  6. Good info as always and as Dezmond said zombie muppet pigs is a new approach to me but still watchable.

  7. The only episodes I liked for the 11th Doctor are Vincent, and The Girl Who Waited. For me, it seems like they either hit it out of the park or go full on mediocre.

  8. The Girl Who waited was a meh episode but with a nice story to it. You kinda missed the best episodes :D

  9. Beetlejuice 2? You're kidding me, right? :P

  10. I really want to see the Muppets, the trailer was really funny.


You should post your opinion like every other awesome person.
