Movie stuff



Saw an advance screening of UP this week (yay, thank you Clio!), and really liked it. Personal taste makes me prefer it to recent previous Pixar films (Ratatouille and Wall_E).
It's a sweet and fun adventure. All the sequences with the dogs are my favorites. Go see it!!!!
I will go again, possibly for the screening without the annoying 3D glasses. Makes the picture blurry when images move too fast.

There's a new Harry Potter trailer-featurette that has gone up on the web. Ooooooh...makes me want to see it even more. It's going to be daaaaaaaaark!

Last, but not least, first released pics of Dev Patel and Noah Ringer as Zuko and Aang in the upcoming Last Airbender movie. You may have seen these on the web already, but just in case:

Movie Zuko
Zuko knows how to make fun outdoor bbq.

More Zuko

Oops, looks like no pony tail and a slightly smaller scar on his face.
Guess daddy went easy on him.

EDIT: After comments made below, I paid more attention to the soldiers helmet. Despite their LOTR look, it does have a look that's fire nationy:

helmets

Movie Aang
I get the feeling the set may be Northern Water Tribe. Just because of the wavy lines on the structure of the bridge. The original design had a lot of influence from Venice in a way, so it may work.
Didn't know they had electricity, ha ha! Those bulb like things on the bridge look lit up.

Guess they must have a hydro electric dam.

EDIT:
Ok, nothing film related, but my friend in Montreal (Saskia, hello!) made me discover this fun online cooking show. I am not much of a cook myself (that's an understatement), but the style of the Food Commander makes me want to try recipes.

I hadn't noticed that before and now I'm going to be constantly staring at it until they explain it. Thanks.

The first pic I saw was more cropped and I had not paid attention. This is a bit wider and shows more so I pay more attention to the BG.
Ha ha, fake snow on the ground!

Zuko is sans scar. So what is this? Pre Agni Kai? And he hasn't got his ponytail. Blasphemy!

Now I see the second picture. I must be a horrible person because I am actually disappointed the scar isn't worse

Don't know if it's for real, but does feel genuine.

Aaawww Aang is so cute! I'm excited for him!

Zuko uuumm... I guess I'm a little surprised they couldn't have at least make-upped the eyebrow away but okay, I'm still open-minded about this.

I think I also wanted something more gruesome (oooh, my bad). Just so he appears more scary with more bad guy vibes.
Ah well.

Oh, Zuzu, bringing the luau with him wherever he goes... XD And is that a Rider of Rohan behind him at the South Pole in the second pic? ;)

Avatar movie's starting to look good. Hope it turns out well.

PS
I just bought the Nickelodeon magazine with your comic.
The panel with Jeong Jeong getting tossed with earth bending was hilarious. XD

I'm wishing it good success too.
Aw, thanks! Poor JJ. He already doesn't like firebending much, he may just add Earth Bending as being a pain in the butt.
Literally.

o___O

Noah doesn't pull off Aang and Dev soooo isn't Zuko material. And where's his scar for Christ's sake?

How did Eomer find his way into the Avatarverse?

There seems to be a whole lot of crazy cool shots for the new HP film. *squee!*
Let's not talk about BBQ anymore. Making me hungry.

Aang doesn't look quite as sprightly as he should - this Ringer kid is built like a rock!!

Heh, they should have had a shot of him flying with his glider.

Well, that's interesting.
First off, I saw the first fifty minutes of Up a while ago, and I must agree with you. A great movie in general.

Second, those pictures....aesthetically, the movie appears to be actually...good. I know, a radical thought in some circles of the fandom, but it says nothing of the finished product. Many movies are beautiful but pretty terrible. One major issue: that isn't a scar. That's not traumatic. He looks like someone went over the picture with a photoshop smudge tool set at 1%. I'm disappointed. It's ridiculous. But other then that...interesting take on a cartoon, they made it seem much more realistic. Many people keep on insisting Noah Ringer is white, but he appears to be Asian, IMO. What do you think?

Re: Well, that's interesting.
Noah Ringer looks mixed to me. A dash of white, a bit of asian, maybe sprinkled with other nationalities.

Oh good lord - where did you find these photos? Not the cuts from usatoday and haven't seen the 2nd Zuko picture at all! O_o

Seriously, that is supposed to be a scar? THAT?!? And why isn't his head shaved with a ponytail?!? ZUKO WASN'T HANDSOME IN SEASON 1! lol

That culture clash looks also somewhat weird. Indian!Zuko in Japanese armour with Rohirrim as Guards. EWP - here we go! XD

That second picture of Zuko looks like it might be a slow motion shot?
You know, the typical "We're so hot, we gotta be in slow motion so you don't get burned" shot?

I think I'm reserving my judgement on the movie until I see some trailers and/or acting.

Teaser trailer in June, apparently just before the new Transformers film.

If live-action Zuko here starts dancing to Jai Ho, I may be persuaded to watch.

What is that supposed to be on Aang's forehead???

Detailed arrow tattoo instead of the solid blue look.

The soldiers look like the riders of Rohan. In black. Instead of red.
