Everyone's favorite kind of movie... one based on a popular TV show. How often do we discuss how lame Hollywood is becoming in their inability to come up with a new idea.
Coming soon (or not so soon).
Aeon Flux (2005)
Dukes of Hazzard, The (2005)
Father Knows Best (2005)
Green Hornet, The (2005)
Strangers with Candy (2005)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie (2006)
I Dream of Jeannie (2006)
Miami Vice (2006)
Untitled Evangelion Project (2006) Live action!! Holy crap that could be pretty awesome if they take a dark tone to it and not make it a kid's movie.
Untitled Star Trek Prequel, The (2007)
Simpsons, The (2008)
X-Files movie...what a load of shit. And I liked the TV show.
Since then I try to stay away from tv series turned into movies.
The Incredible Hulk
The Black Honeymooners
Crap, crap, crap
It was just Hulk. It was in no way based on the TV series. The TV series was based on a comic book... loosely I might add.
The movie was based on the comic book.
The movie's negatives probably tipped the scales (the Nick Nolte character sucked), but I thought the effects were very well done. People who say the Hulk didn't look real have their standards set way too high. Especially since it's not REAL to begin with. Considering they took something from a drawing on a page out of a comic book and gave it depth and motion and expression... not to mention the appearance of doing some serious damage... I think they did an amazing job.
Father Knows Best the movie? I'm sure that's going to break box office records.
There isn't much information on that one and given how late into the year it is I have doubts that'll actually be a 2005 release. But it was one of the results in the search I did, so I threw it in there.
This might be good - but I doubt it.
Repeat after me: It'll never happen. Did you see the
production sketches? They are americanizing the names
and making them all older, it appears. Somehow, seeing
some 30-something retread actress with a bad redhead
dye-job screaming "Look Mama, I'm an Eva pilot!" makes
me want to puke up my spleen.
eta: On that topic, [adultswim] will be airing Eva starting
on October 10th @ 12:30pm. Given the content, I expect
the running time to be about 8 minutes after edits.
I don't think Americanizing it will change the basic storyline all that much. Making the characters older may deviate from the story a bit but I'd rather have an acotr that can actually act rather than a kid that isn't worth a shit... remember the kid that played Annakin in Star Wars Episode 1? He pretty much sucked.
If they get young looking "adult" actors it could still be pulled off. For me the meat of the movie is the fight against the Angels using the Eva units and the "dark secrets" of NERV.
You have to admit seeing live action EVA units would be worth the price.
I'll agree with you if they stick to the action
portion of the series (e.g. the first half). If
they delve into the second-half of the series
(when Anno lost his mind), the characters
will be a much bigger problem.
Frankly, I always considered the Angel/Eva
storyline to be a big McGuffin in order to get
at the meat of the series which is the nature
of man / inter-personal relationships /
Well, atleast the "ZOMG, REI!" fanboys can
fap away without the wierd "dude, she's 14"
Yes, I'll end up watching it like the pathetic,
self-hating animu douche that I am.
I like Aqua Teen as much as the next guy, but I don't know if I'll be able to take a two hour episode of it. There's a reason it's only a fifteen minute long show.
I dare them to do The Time Tunnel into a decent movie.
Tony and Doug take a little trip and come back at the end of the movie.
