I didn't watch it, but I'm glad Natalie Portman won Best Actress for Black Swan.


Portman (along with Melissa Leo for the Fighter) definitely deserved their awards.

Also good to see Inception win for SPFX, especially considering it was the only movie on the ballot that didn't overly rely on CGI

Evolving is one thing, but did any of you actually listen to anything to come out after The Fragile? They were dreadful. With Teeth and The Slip are by far the worst pieces of trash ever to come out of that man. Ghosts was good even though the really good tracks are only like a minute long. The Fragile is by far the best NIN CD ever, and NIN used to be my favorite band until recently, which has now been replaced with Angelspit and Rammstein.

As for the score category, Inception got gyped. The music was another character of the movie, which is by far better than anything Social Network had to offer. Then again, Nolan did not even get a director nomination where David Finch did. :roll: As you can see though, I have no love for Social Network. It is a movie about an ahole that is based off a garbage website.

On other notes, I am disappointed the girl from True Grit did not win best supporting actress. She did such a phenomenal role that she truly deserved it. As for supporting actor, I am so glad to see Bale win it, but after seeing The King's Speech, Geoffrey Rush really deserved it. He did such a great job in that role.

At least Alice in Wonderland won the stuff it truly deserved.

I don't think I've ever agreed with anything Kain has ever said,but I do think NIN has sucked for years. I remember back when I was going to clubs like every week,when NIN was kind of on hiatus for awhile everyone moved in more of a dance direction,and suddenly industrial was electro/EBM stuff. Well,Nails came back but frankly by that point I liked APB and VNV Nation a million times more than I ever liked NIN. Maybe it was my fault for not being an angsty teen anymore,maybe it was the scene's fault for being fickle,maybe it was Reznor's fault for watering down material that would make a decent ep with enough filler to make a two-disc. The point is by that point we cared a lot more about Cruxshadows than NIN. Maybe that was just the people I hung out with,though.

These days I still sometimes listen to Apoptygma or VNV,or even Switchblade Symphony,and I still love every new DM release,but I don't even own any NIN stuff anymore,not even MP3's on my hard drive. Same thing with Marilyn Manson.

So because you didn't like a few albums or are butt hurt that Hans Zimmer got "robbed," (just wanna add, I would have liked Zimmer to win also, but I can't say Reznor's score didn't deserve it) that suddenly makes Social Network and its score suck?

Now we're talking about what NIN albums we like and which ones we don't (for my money, everything after With Teeth is what I do not like), which is about as far from the original debate as possible (and even further from the real topic, which is the Wolf Man). And considering that The Social Network isn't an NIN piece, NIN really has nothing to do with well... anything.

No it doesn't. My comment was about NIN since someone had mentioned Reznor and it's not like the thread isn't derailed already.

I can't envision any possible scenario where I would watch The Social Network,I don't even use Facebook,and obviously I doubt I'll ever hear the soundtrack album (see above rant) so I have no opinion of the score.

That's cool, nicky. My comments were more or less aimed at Kain.

I think the problem I have with the score to The Social Network is that it just sounds like recycled NIN songs, but without the "umph" that made them good. I mean there is a song on there (track 11) that even sounds like it is The Great Below from The Fragile. I understand they are his songs and all, but the man seems to have forgotten how to come up with new original material.

I am in the same boat with kidnicky, I have no interest in it because I no interest in Facebook, and as I previously stated, I think the guy is a douche.

All the better reason for you to watch the film. That's kinda the point of the movie to begin with. Also, I'm not sure its entirely fair to base your opinion of a score on hearing it without seeing how it fits with the film.

Still, the film makers even admitted to the fact that they weren't portraying him in a positive light. Writer Aaron Sorkin has even gone as far as to say he made a point to show Zuckerberg as a greedy misogynist. Zuckerberg is definitely the "villain" of the movie.

Regardless, how you might feel about Facebook really isn't relevant. I don't give two sh*ts about Wall Street, but the movie Wall Street is fantastic. In fact, the Social Network is kind of this generations Wall Street (more so than the awful Wall Street sequel). Both films speak volumes about the corruption and flaws of their respective generations. It isn't a movie ABOUT Facebook. Its about the way the creator alienated anyone that ever cared about him to become a billionaire. Furthermore, it has the subtext of how online life has replaced real life. The irony of the movie is that Zuckerberg stabbed his friends in the back to create a website that is based around having friends.

i don't know if "god-awful" is a word/phrase I'd use to describe the movie...

disappointing might be better considering the first two acts were totally decent.

I also thought the first 2 acts were alright. Not great, but not awful. Its when the Hopkins twist comes into play that the movie commits suicide.

Anyway, I'm in for a reboot as long as we get a good movie this time.

Universal's Classic Monsters: The Werewolf

Postby mr.negativity » Sun Jul 10, 2011 10:45 pm

Universal's Classic Monsters: The Werewolf
Universal Wants A New Wolfman - Louis Morneau will direct The Werewolf

Owen Williams wrote:It should have been a classic: beautifully shot, with Oscar-winning prosthetic FX make-up by Rick Baker, and Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins in roles originally played by Lon Chaney Jr and Claude Raines. Sadly though, the well-documented production problems thoroughly did for The Wolfman, which is why Universal seem to be drawing a line under the whole sorry affair and starting again. The Werewolf has just picked up a director in Louis Morneau.

The project did begin life as a straight-up Wolfman sequel, but Michael Tabb's script is now being reworked into a stand-alone movie. It took Universal a couple of attempts to nail a werewolf movie the first time around too: The Wolf Man was one of the later horror icons added to its pantheon in 1941, and itself ignored 1936's Werewolf of London (not to be confused with An American Werewolf in London, which has its own remake percolating).

The fact that this is coming together under Universal's Family and Home Entertainment division should probably provide a clue as to the nature of the latest project though, as might the director himself: a Roger Corman veteran whose previous works include Bats, The Hitcher 2, and Roadkill 2.

Yup, it looks like we're in the scary world of DTV, and that assumption is borne out by the speed at which the production's moving. Casting is getting underway imminently, with shooting pencilled in for the autumn.

The Wolfman follow-up we really want to see is the further adventures of Hugo Weaving's Inspector Aberline. Somebody get on that please.

I no longer have faith in Universal to return their monsters to their former glory. The Mummy franchise sucked (with possible exception to the third film) and they've ruined a brilliant opportunity with del Toro and Hopkins. How could they get it so wrong? As far as I'm concerned, "Werewolf" is a colossal waste of time and money. Whoever it is running things at the studio now needs their head checked or better yet locked out. They have no idea how to handle their own icons (Baker's involvement being the exception).
