Soon. Un long dimanche de fianšailles is in post-production and stars guess who?

The worst movie of the summer of '04 may end up being the empty screen where Fahrenheit 9/11 was supposed to show.

Obviously their won't be a blank screen, but wouldn't it be cool if theatre owners told Disney, "we ain't showing anywore of your stuff until you release the Michael Moore movie."

I can dream can't I?

If there are no movies starring Pauly Shore, I consider the summer to be a success.

From the Associated Press: Miramax bosses Harvey and Bob Weinstein are trying to buy back the film and find another distributor, with Moore hoping to have it in theaters by Fourth of July weekend.

I'd like to put my money on Spiderman for "biggest hyped bomb". I've got a feeling on this.

I am so all over Catwoman. Its gonna break box office records. It may even clean up Duh Awards. Heck, it might even make Star Wars III think twice about releasing next year and thus making room for the far more appropriate BDM(tm), Serenity, next Summer. And that costume, my god. I'm about to have a private moment with myself when I think about that Catwoman costume.

Not. (I'm going to sleep through this year until next summer when Firefly The Movie goes up.)

He was one of King Priam's advisers.

Is that the name of the Mad Magazine parody? (Or is it Van Smellsing?)

Thanks, I remember now, he played Archeptolemus, the advisor who misreads omens, although in The Iliad, Archeptolemus is Hector's charioteer. Then again, this is the Hollywood version, though the Greek legend is far more exciting: after the sack of Troy, Agamemnon is not slain by Briseis, but sets sail for Greece having taken King Priam's daughter Cassandra for his concubine. Agamemnon's wife Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus eventually murder him. That'll teach him...

How about a sequel to Troy? Say Odysseus, but without the Pitt.

Dunno, we'll have to wait a bit longer for that Mad parody but I'm sure they're working on it as we speak. Wonder which of our ideas they'll use? ;-)

That could be a discussion category of its own -- Mad Magazine parody titles of the future...

"Scatwoman"
"Around the World in Dated Ways"

huhm.

maybe it's because I hate chick flicks or maybe it's because I hate Kate Hudson, but Raising Helen looks pretty miserable.

Worst movie of the summer is going ot be catwoman. it will be worse than daredevil and will start the decline of all comic book movies. You heard it here first!

I saw an ad for it on tv, and pretty much every critical quote that was used is the type that should be banned from all movie reviews/advertisements.

The question is, is it a remake of Baby Boom, or just a blatant Rip-Off? And if it is a remake... for chrissake WHY? I see a remake of Broadcast News just around the corner if this is successful.

I'm hoping Spider-man II will avoid the curse of the sequels because as jaded as I was, I actually enjoyed the first one. Catwoman on the other hand looks like it was made just so DC comics had something to capitalize on the summer glut. The only thing the movie and comic have in common is the name. Why bother?
A friend saw Van Helsing and basically said it was what you'd think... a popcorn flick. Heavy on the action, light on the plot. If that's what you're looking for, then you should enjoy it. Otherwise, dont' expect too much. She also said Troy was better, but not much different.
As far as the rest of the summer "Must See" flicks, well, let's just say that I'm glad Return of the King is coming out on DVD.

I thought Troy was enjoyable, but I've never read The Iliad. Here's Troy in Fifteen Minutes.

The only big summer movie I'm looking forward to is the musical biopic of Cole Porter, with Kevin Kline as the lead. (Excellent casting!) I forget the name of it...the rest of the big Hollywood movies look like crap to me, but, hey, I'm 35, and therefore about twenty years older than the target audience for most of them.
