The Hobbit BTS Production Diary 4

Posted on 04 November 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s pretty awesome to be able to get an inside look into Peter Jackson’s world of production on his latest film. He’s really allowed a level of access that is rarely seen on a movie of this scale. In the latest production diary we get an in depth look at what goes into creating an epic 3D film. From what I’ve seen and heard regarding the use of 3D in this film I would expect this to blow away any previous films that have attempted to harness this process. That means you Avatar…

Three Best and Worst Live-Action 3D Movies

Posted on 04 November 2011 by Charles B. French

I think we can all agree that 3D is now officially a thing. It comes and goes every decade or so and is usually a passing gimmick, but this time it seems to be here for the duration. For now.

When it comes to animated movies, the 3D is usually pretty good, at least from a visual standpoint. However, live action is a whole different animal (probably a lemur) and it’s a lot more hit and miss. And when it misses, you’re sitting in the theater wearing silly glasses wondering whether paying almost double for tickets was really worth it.

My focus is on the 3D itself, as that’s the point of seeing one of these films. I’m there for the spectacle, as are many of you. Thus, this one time I’m going to give other factors a pass.

Underworld: Awakening Trailer Underwhelms…

Posted on 24 August 2011 by TH3 No08

There was a time when the idea of an Underworld sequel was interesting to me but two lackluster sequels have left me generally uninterested in anything they have to offer. Bringing back Kate Bekinsale twelve years after the previous movie might bring back some of the original audience but the 3d money grab will keep a lot of fans away who were previously disappointed and see this as nothing more than an attempt to jump on a gimmick band wagon.

Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.

Final Destination 5 splatters onto the internet…

Posted on 10 May 2011 by TH3 No08

There’s something about these movies that keeps people coming back. Maybe it’s the Rube Goldberg style of killing hot looking models or maybe some people just like the idea of cheating death. I enjoy these film for their pure goofy fun and I’ll probably check this one out just for the hell of it…

I’m not a huge fan of the the Potter films as some people are but I do enjoy them from time to time however I hated the previous one. It was boring and tedious but I do think the second half will be better just based on how the book was laid out. Here’s the trailer for the final chapter in the Harry Potter saga that hits theaters July 15 2011

Drive Angry 3D Superbowl Spot

Posted on 05 February 2011 by TH3 No08

Here’s another badass trailer for Drive Angry. This one will be featured during the Superbowl so check it out so when you see it on Sunday you can say you saw it here first…

Synopsis

“Drive Angry” stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out for one last chance at redemption. Hell bent on stopping a vicious cult of fanatics who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice his infant granddaughter beneath a full moon. Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits in order to save his last connection with humanity.

He’s joined by Piper, a young sexy-smart waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend’s cherry red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the charismatic Jonah King and his murderous followers. King will throw every one of them faithful under the wheels of Milton’s turbo-charged Black ’71 Challenger, to fulfill his destiny and unleash hell on earth.

But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton’s problems. The police are after him, too. And worse. An enigmatic killer known only as “The Accountant.” The Accountant knows what Milton is trying to and simply doesn’t care. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the forgotten back roads of the American south.

Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton and Piper must battle the onslaught of King’s disciples, avenge his murdered daughter, and save his granddaughter before his last chance at redemption is revoked.

Review: Saw 3D

Posted on 18 November 2010 by TH3 No08

When dealing with a movie such as Saw 3D, one must take into consideration three things. One, do I have eighty minutes to spare? Sure, I’m a movie nerd, what else do I have but time. Two, am I susceptible to becoming squeamish at the sight of seeing a large fish hook on a string pulled from the stomach through the mouth? Yes, but I never let a fishhook throat gag get in the way of a good story. And three, do I honesty care that Carey Elwes’s career has sunk to the level that he must partake in such a sorry excuse for a movie? I’ve never seen The Princess Bride so I don’t hold him in nearly the high regard as most people so I decided to see it.

Let’s get straight to the point, this was an awful movie and by awful I mean there really seemed to be no point in what I was seeing on the screen. No character development, no interesting dialogue, not one opportunity to establish that I should really care at all for the people being ripped to pieces and splattered about the room (other than the fact that it was in 3D). What’s the point of killing people off if nobody watching the movie cares? There’s absolutely no emotional impact when somebody dies. Even when the wife of one of the main characters gets burned alive after her lying husband fails to save her and she perishes in front of him I felt nothing for her, him, or the family members they may or may not have left behind (who knows, like I said no character development). By the time one killing gag was over I had pretty much forgotten what had just happened in the previous scene and moved on to the next massacre.

Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the first chapter of the Saw saga. It was a perfect example of a low budget movie shot within very specific restrictions (one location and few actors) and done very effectively. It had a star (the before mentioned Elwes), it had a cool look, and it had a cool twist of an ending. Unfortunately for them, Tobin Bell became an overnight sensation and they decided they could make a whole series of movies based on the fact that he has a scary voice when played back on a tape recorder. Somewhere along the way the series became about traps that mangled people, people sacrificing others to save themselves, and generally spraying gore on the screen without really having much story behind it.

Saw 3D is a perfect example of too much of a good thing. A little blood, a nice twist, or even a few jump scares can go a long way, but seven movies worth of the same gags over and over again can really put a damper on things. The first time I see someone’s head ripped in half by a steampunk bear trap, I’m effected, after that I’m just bored, a little grossed out, but ultimately not entertained by what you spent seventeen millions dollars to produce. Maybe if you were forced to make all the sequels to Saw for the original movies 1.6 million dollar budget you would have been able to come up with a better story, or maybe you would have realized that sometimes good enough should be left alone. Either way we would have probably been better off.

Saw 3D was a fitting end to this series. It started off with a bang and then slowly meandered its way through tediousness and boredom until ultimately everyone was either dead, bored, or got lost on a trip to the snack bar. I say skip Saw 3D and visit the snack bar instead, I’m sure they might have some interesting stories there.

The Noob has spoken…
