    Im impressed with Stephen Spielberg’s “Lincoln” which appears to be an excuse to discuss the Civil war. I assume he used his recent experience earned during the making of “War Horse,” to prepare him for this movie.

    Oops no. I was going to congratulate him for trying new things but it seems like one should research IMBD before commenting. His portfolio of war movies is really extremely large.

    Munich
    Amistad
    Saving Private Ryan
    Schindler’s List
    Empire of the Sun

      Sorry: “Steven.”

    • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 6:14 PM #

      Yes! It’s quite amazing when u span over SS films on War. Of course there told from different perspectives but it gives u an idea of his depth and breadth of dealing with this genre. I’m really looking forward to it despite not having heard or seen a trailer yet. I think the cast and director is the selling point here.

      • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 6:32 PM #

        I agree. Where’s the trailer?

        • ozzie20 September 4, 2012 at 7:55 PM #

          i’m interested in seeing this one too. Of the few photos I’ve seen it looks very impressive!

  2. Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 2:21 PM #

    Despite the omission, it’s a little hard to believe a lot of people aren’t waiting for this.

      Whyyyyyyyyyyyy???????? (curls up in fetal position)

      • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 6:29 PM #

        I’m saying whyy?? Simply because after Cosmopolis it’s hard for me to revisit Rob in this role. In Cosmo he’s so unpredictable and compelling. I mean the film will be worth seeing to see Rob finish out the series and Edward. Ok I will stop there!!

        • ozzie20 September 4, 2012 at 8:01 PM #

          *shudders* I can feel the hives breaking out already!

    CR- I’m trying to figure out what should be your punishment. Ideas anyone????

    • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 6:29 PM #

      Hmmm, that doesn’t sound like appreciation either.

      Maybe I should remind you how much that franchise made. After all we can always go back to last year when OB you and Lurker swore Breaking Dawn part two was doomed and wouldn’t make a dime. At $281,287,133; no it didn’t out earn “New moon” ($296,623,634) or Eclipse ($300,531,751) but I’m sure people will be curious as to whether Kristin tanked the franchise.

      I don’t know whether that will persuade people to buy tickets but after all this is the last one and everyone knows it. Very few “Twi” girls are dead and headed into Thanksgiving holiday after a stressful semester with a horny holiday season ripe for multiple viewings who knows what could happen? That’s it put up or shut up.

      Does anyone have the “balls” to make another box office prediction?

      • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 6:58 PM #

        CR-Hmmm! Well let’s stay away from “balls” given u are more vulnerable in that area. However, I will say me and Lurker’s predictions were that BD was not going to make enough money for Hollywood to meet its predictions to surpass its previous year’s earnings. In fact Hollywood film studios earned less money with Tent Poles last summer then in previous years. Remember Green Lantern??? I distinctively remember someone here singing its praises and it tanked at the box office.

        • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:09 PM #

          I don’t exactly remember it the way you say yet I’m willing to accept perspective.

          By the way I endorsed the character who at the time was a best seller. How was I to know the director of Casino Royale, with the help of Warner Bros. (Batman Trilogy, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter) would deliver a dud.

          All I’m saying is Breaking Dawn part 2 just might surprise us, in what direction I just can’t say.

          • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 7:12 PM #

            No! No! No…I’m willing to hold out and see BD2. I saw Eclipse and that was the worst one yet. So I’m game!!

            • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:25 PM #

              I really didn’t want to dog “Eclipse” but honestly I hated that one the most also.

          • littlebells September 4, 2012 at 8:39 PM #

            By surprise, maybe everyone dies in the battle? That would be a nice surprise.

            • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 8:42 PM #

              • ozzie20 September 4, 2012 at 9:20 PM #

    Everyone-

    Is there a film not listed on the Top 10 list u are looking forward to seeing this fall and why?

    • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 6:44 PM #

      I’m not a huge Ben Affleck fan, but I still can’t wait to see “Argo.” Tony Mendez’s account of the rescue of hostages from Tehran during the lame duck end of Jimmy Carter’s term seems like an incredible story. Here’s another trailer:

      • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:00 PM #

        Sorry, I’m still not over “Gigli” and some of the other tabloid stunts of that period. Yet I think everyone eventually deserves forgiveness. “The Town” started me on a path to tolerance, compassion and acceptance of Ben’s excesses.

        • littlebells September 4, 2012 at 7:04 PM #

          I think he is a better director than actor, but he acts better in his own films.

          • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 7:09 PM #

            ITA LB!!

          • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:11 PM #

            Now that’s real generosity. It would be nice to send him your classy assessment.

            • littlebells September 4, 2012 at 7:16 PM #

              I’m just being honest. And I say it after realizing most of the films where I enjoyed his acting, he happened to direct.

            • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:18 PM #

              LB,

              Do you think really understanding the financial stakes brings out the artist in artists or why do you think he’s suddenly plausible as an actor (after all he already has an Oscar).

              • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 7:33 PM #

                I will say having more at stake can cause some artist to be more attentive. But I think if u are a re pretty boy in Hollywood it’s hard to establish yourself as a serious actor unless u direct or produce. Look at Robert Redford, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and more…

                • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:41 PM #

                  That was chilling; yet likely true.

                  You seem to place this burden of truth or proof on the actor as though it is not the fault of their audience? Am I correct?

                  • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 8:02 PM #

                    I think it’s a shared responsibility of the actor and fan base. The actor can’t be afraid to take risk and do something out of their comfort zone. The fans should support them when they branch out of the conventional roles and be willing to step outside of their comfort zone as well. I guess its a mutual respect sorta thing!!

    I’ve seen the trailer for Cloud Atlas and I’m not feeling it. To me it looks over produced. Has anyone heard good things about this film??

  7. littlebells September 4, 2012 at 7:17 PM #

    Other than DU and LM, none of the others interest me that much. I will most likely rent AK. And Mr. Pitt…I don’t get it.

    • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 7:21 PM #

      I feel the same LB…Actually, The Master does not interest me and I don’t know why. I like Philip Seymor Hoffman but I’m not drawn to want to see it.

      • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:36 PM #

        I don’t know about the movie yet I’m really to glad to see the return Joaquin Phoenix. I’m sorry these actors are encouraged to launch all of these different stunts they should just act and let their fans appreciate them for that.

        • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:37 PM #

          Sorry: “return of”

          • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 7:41 PM #

            Oh! noooo! Why did u do that??? I tried to forget that stunt!!

            • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 7:44 PM #

              Sorry I think most people found it boring. I think it went like this, after “Walk the line” he was quitting to become a hip hop artist.

              • ozzie20 September 4, 2012 at 8:15 PM #

                I wouldn’t mind seeing The Master as it’s by one of my favorite directors, plus it’s supposed to be losely based on the origins of Scientology (and could freak them out, lol). However, I’d probably wait until it came on the TV.

                I wouldn’t mind seeing Cloud Atlas because the concept interests me but I don’t know if I’ll just read the book and skip the movie. It’s another one I’d probably wait to come on TV.

                • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 8:30 PM #

                  Hmm! I did not know that Ozzie about the Master. I still will wait for it on DVD I think.

                    Well now I’m slightly interested. I’ll wait on dvd too.

          Really. I didn’t detect any snark. I was being honest. I still haven’t forgotten all the musical dance and musicals she used to talk about. I still love to hear her talk about it.

          I liked that stuff but not nearly as much as she did. Then again I never performed that stuff either.

          I could repeat what Ozzie said but I have to admit you guys must read 3 times faster than I do. I was 75 percent finished with “Child 44” then I had to read “Cosmopolis” at light speed.Eventually I just gave up.

    • Open Book September 4, 2012 at 8:33 PM #

      I honestly don’t know about BP. I really liked him in Money Ball but this film looks like a trendy and desperate attempt at something I can’t quite put my finger on. I mean he’s done this stuff before with Guy Ritchie. So IDK!!

        2007 The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

        I think this is a pretty impressive slate of films. I ignored the animated movies like “Megamind” and “Happy Feet Two.” Despite “killing me softly” I think he has better films on the horizon.

    Lb (I wish Paris was here),

    Speaking of Anna Karenina, Is there a reason actors don’t attempt Russian accents anymore. The production design looks fantastic and I’m sure I will not notice when the movie gets started. But I recently heard some others complain that Black Widow was supposed to be Russian in the “Avengers.” And it only occurred to me recently that might have changed my experience watching the film.

    • littlebells September 4, 2012 at 8:51 PM #

      That’s a great question. Here are my theories: if u can’t do it right, it sounds crappy and sometimes even done right some people may not find it pleasant or easy to understand.

      • Comic Relief September 4, 2012 at 8:59 PM #

        O.K. I think your narrowing in on what I was asking/

        Seems like the the appreciation for Russia accents might leave something to be desired.

        Listening to movies of the past makes me miss that ethnic characteristic in films. 🙂

        Why choose these screen plays, if audiences currently have their fill of hear that “tongue” expressed.

        I’m sure I will like the film anyway.

    Sorry, for the “balls” comment earlier I was kidding in an ironic sense. Of course ironic humor doesn’t work if someone doesn’t understand it. I assumed everyone would know I was kidding given the number of women present in the discussion. Of course that doesn’t take into account the women in the audience. So sorry about that; I hope no one was offended.
