Yep, I remember that.
Yep. I still see these stickers. The local library has a number of used videotapes purchased from Blockbuster, with the reminder plastered on. The library itself has their own "please rewind" stickers as well.
Yes, the John Rambo commercials are rather terrifying!
Wow, I didn't know about Hopkins playing Hitchcock. Interesting casting!
.... oh well. it is an original concept. I'll give it that. But still, yikes.
The film will be directed by Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy, and is based on Hitchcock's life around the time he shot the 1960 classic Psycho, in which he leaned heavily on techniques he learned while working on his T.V. series. The film is said to be named after that series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
Also, Helen Mirren will play Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville
There's a great book called Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. Perhaps this project will be based on that book? There are a lot of great behind the scenes stories and anecdotes...
I love how Hitch made "Psycho" as a response to the low-budget horror films being churned out at the time by studios such as Hammer and AIP, and by directors such as William Castle (called "the poor man's Hitchcock" by some). Hitch wondered what would happen if a director of his stature were to try his hand at a small, grimy little black and white horror flick (in contrast to the glossy, all-star fare he was known for). He used his television series crew to shoot the film, which was completed in about 35 days, a record for Hitch.
Of course everyone already knows this, about the new Indiana Jones picture.
But I do have to say, Harrison Ford is looking old in the trailer.
Well, he is old. But I'll bet he can still kick all kinds of baddie bottom!
Okay here's some major news. The 80's cartoon G.I. Joe is being made into a live action film and so is the 70's live action show Land Of The Lost.
Both are going to come out in 2009 to a theater, who overcharges for a ticket and snacks, near you.
Looks like Hollywood land is running out of ideas, as they are now going for other cartoon shows and tv shows. I even read "The Jetsons" cartoon is being made into a live action movie.
Oh and Toy Story 3 is going to be out around 2010 too.
Yeah! While I think G.I Joe is a good Idea I do think there wearing thin in the creative aspect in a lot of ways.
Live action Jetsons... they've been barking up that tree since 1996. It's NEVER going to happen. Never.
Well if they ever do, Danny DeVito would be great as Mr. Spacely.
The Jack Black Movie sounds hilarious
You mean 'Be Kind, Rewind'?
I've probably said it before, but I'll say it again...Land Of The Lost should be made as a serious Sci-Fi movie true to the original series instead of a comical farce starring Will Ferrel, Whom by the way, I cannot stand. What's next..."LidsVille" starring Dave Chappelle?
It can't be as dreadful as the 1990's version, anyway. The one that aired on ABC. Of course, I was never a big fan of the Krofft shows. I only saw some of them, and they were alright, but not my thing.
I used to watch that show saturday mornings on ABC in the early 90's. That and The Real Ghostbusters.
I did see that the new movie is supposed to be comedy with Will Farrel as the lead role.
Could be as bad as that stupid Tranformers movie I finally saw last week for the first time.
I have yet to see that, but I heard it almost evenly devided the fans. Some people thought the film was great, some felt it fell flat. I can't wait to see what happens with the G.I.Joe film. That's had problems all the way.
With Transformers, the autobots were really good, but they barely had enough screen time! Plus the humans in the story were just awful, completely devoid of any decency. But then again, perhaps that was the point, that the world needed some heroes. Here's my opinion as I posted it in my blog:
Awww, I really liked the Transformers movie.
