Tidbits Movies and Everything Else

Welcome to Tidbits Movies and Everything Else! Mostly featuring movies, Ms. TidBits will definitely be there to cover everything about it. These posts are meant for geeks like me so enjoy reading TIDBITS!

TRAILER FOR LOVE:

What I love about surfing across movie blogs and sites, you find gems such as this Indie film which has me amazed and enthralled that this was directed by a newbie. What amazing visual effects and cinematography. I have no idea what the slow-mo battle scene has anything to do with isolation in space but I am dying to find out. This will definitely be on my must-see list for 2011. You can find another awesome trailer here.

Shown Santa Barbara Film Festival - Feb 2nd, 4th and 5th 2011
DVD Release with deluxe album - March 22nd 2011
Writer, Director - William Eubank

Synopsis - After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut LEE MILLER becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity - and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship. Driven by the powerful music of ANGELS & AIRWAVES, LOVE explores the fundamental human need for connection and the limitless power of hope A high-impact visual adventure, that resonates a common truth, that everyone has a story to tell and something even greater to leave behind.

Watch the first look/trailer of Wes Craven’s SCREAM 4. After all the spoofs of the scary voice on the telephone, I don’t think I’ll be that scared anymore. Maybe it’ll even become funny, am not sure XD But who knows? The writer and the director are both good! 

Ten years have passed since the first series of killings, and Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the infamous Ghostface Killer once again.

This GREEN LANTERN trailer isn’t anything new. Again I had been living under a rock for 4 months so I completely missed this. I just wanted to see Ryan Reynolds in action. :D In my opinion the trailer could have been better and Ryan Reynolds seems more suitable to be The Flash XD haha! I did love the ending scene in the trailer! XD 

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy calledParallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Wow… great reinvention of some movie posters! All by Sam Smith

According to Jude Law, who returns as Watson in Guy Ritchie‘s currently filming Sherlock Holmes 2, one of the most exciting things in the sequel is the “fear level.” “We get pretty kicked around,” Law said. “Just look at the state of us.” You can see the state of Law and his co-star Robert Downey Jr. in the above below, the latest look at the film scheduled for release December 16. Both he and Downey spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the film, which is set one year after the original.
The piece also details several action scenes which I’d consider minor spoilers. The first features Watson, Holmes and a gypsy woman named Sim running away from gunfire in a train yard. Finding cover, they all fumble for guns, but Sim gets hers out first and blasts the bad guys. Sim, of course, is played by Noomi Rapace, the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The second scene, which seems like it’s just another shot from the same train yard chase, features Holmes and Watson taking cover from behind a crate. Watson then jumps up with an almost Gatling gun and lays waste to everything around them.
Plot of second Sherlock Holmes:
Set in 1891 — a year after the last film’s events — the sequel shows Holmes continuing his pursuit of Professor Moriarty (played by Jared Harris), who, if the investigator’s instincts are correct, might be the world’s first supervillain. Watson, meanwhile, is still trying to be a good partner to his love, Mary Morstan (Kelly Reilly), while keeping Sherlock alive.

I absolutely can’t wait for the second film! I really enjoyed Downey Jr as Sherlock and of course Law as Watson. What do you guys think?

Kinda late but here’s Chris Evans as CAPTAIN AMERICA! In full costume including shield, wings and um… I’m not really a comic book geek so probably he’s wearing a whole lot more! So guys do you like this better than Spiderman’s?

Just because I haven’t gotten over The Social Network (and I REALLY LOVED THAT MOVIE :D), 

video#1 showing David Fincher directing :D *famous scene in the beginning is here*

Photos of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s Girl With a Dragon Tattoo US film adaptation.

All I can say is WOW. Really WOW. I mean would you believe that this is the same girl who dumped Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network? I am excited though for the US film release, even though i did like the Swedish version and they have a chance again for strict comparison, I am still excited because he is a great director. Rooney Mara also did great but she had such few scenes! But if Fincher was so impressed with her performance he immediately casted her as Salander then… she has some things to show!

Shane Black to Direct US Death Note

Can I hear just screams from Asian Death Note fans? I mean there are already two successful (well am not sure with the second, didn’t get to watch it) Japanese movie adaptations of the manga so why would you need another one? Well simple, the US just have to remake everything (heck even their own English movies) so there you go. But who is Shane Black? Well he’s the writer of Lethal Weapon franchise and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (which I really liked!) but I don’t know… I have already been paranoid with supposedly Asian films that do not have Asian actors (remember Dragonball? One of the worst movie-going experiences of my life) so i really have my doubts no matter how good the director is. I just really hope that Shane Black will change my mind. He did say that Death Note is his favorite manga. 

For those who don’t know the story of Death Note 

The main character is Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook, the “Death Note”, dropped on Earth by a death god named Ryuk. It centers around Light’s attempt to create and rule a world cleansed of evil using the notebook and the efforts of a detective known as L, and subsequently his successors, Near and Mello, to stop him. The Death Note grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name they know, by writing the name in the notebook while picturing their face.

Andrew Garfield, one of the stars of The Social Network is THE NEXT SPIDERMAN! First official photo of him wearing the costume. What do you think guys? I’m kind of excited that there’s going to be a reboot but I don’t know why they have to do it so early. Marc Webb is directing and so far he has showed his awesomeness in 500 Days of Summer. But can he do action? I’m excited and apprehensive at the same time! After watching The Social Network, I absolutely thought that Andrew was fit for Peter Parker. I do love this costume too better than Sam Raimi’s Spiderman. Andrew’s not that buff but it’s just right, right? 
Slashfilm also is speculating and discussing clues based from the costume. What storyline are they going for? The comments also are fun to read so head over to Slashfilm!  


OK, we’re going to dive into speculative minutia here. If you’re not into the tiny details of costume obsession, just move on. Just a couple hours ago we got the first photo ofAndrew Garfield wearing the new Spider-Man costume for the film that Marc Webb is directing now. And one of the little details was noticed by JoBlo — on the inside of Spidey’s wrists are what appear to be web-shooters. So what does that mean?
In the original comics, Peter Parker was a science whiz. His ability to shoot webs wasn’t an organic product of the spider bite that gave him powers. It was a bit of tech of his own invention, and he had little pads in his palms with web fluid cannisters strapped to his wrists. In the movies, however, the webs were an organic thing — all part of the condensed allegory more directly equating the Spider-Man ego to adolescence and maturity. (In the comics, the organic web-shooting came later, with the introduction of the black alien symbiote costume.) And there were those who wondered how a high-school kid made web-shooters in the first place. But that was a detail I always loved, so I can roll with it.
I like this first photo because it looks very classic. This is a long, lean Spider-Man, and the costume looks like one he could have made himself than the Raimi version did. And if there are web shooters in there, I’ll be a nice detail for the old-school fans, and another point of differentiation between the previous movies. That means we’ll probably see his web run dry at a crucial time…perhaps leading to the ass-kicked face Mr. Garfield seems to be wearing. Or it could just be a nice little point that will be mentioned early and never expanded upon, which will be fine, too.
Or, is his dejected expression in this image the result of discovering that his early actions as Spider-Man were directly related to the death of Uncle Ben? I’d initially thought of this pose in light of the classic ‘Spider-Man No More’ cover, but then realized that was just a reflection of one of Steve Ditko’s earliest depictions of the character, when he realizes how his actions led to Ben’s death.
