God...I love Joe Bob.

Here's his review of Altitude:
http://www.joebobbriggs.com/index.php?/altitude-2010.html

But you don't need to read it.  It's all about his little summation at the end:

Quote
Drive-In Academy Award nominations for Jessica Lowndes as Sara, who hasn’t logged enough flight time to deal with a flying octopus attack, for insisting, “I’m the pilot and what I say goes!” and for quoting Jean-Paul Sartre at a crucial moment; Julianna Guill as Mel, the blonde with the camcorder, for saying, “Could you be any more insensitive?”, Ryan Donowho as the emo lovesick Cory, for saying, “Wait a minute--Sara’s playing hide the sausage with her tutor?”; Jake Weary as dumb jock Sal for yelling, “Where the hell is the ground?”; and for Landon Liboiron as Bruce, the creepy boyfriend with a secret, for saying, “We’re going to die like them!”

Yeah...excited for most of these. Even though most of them will be horrible.

I do love me some sci-fi Cronenberg.

Robert Pattinson To Star In David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis'

Robert Pattinson has booked his first major lead for when he completes The Twilight Saga. Pattinson will star in Cosmopolis, the Don DeLillo novel adaptation that David Cronenberg wrote and will direct. Pattinson, who just starred with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in Fox 2000's Francis Lawrence-directed adaptation of the Elizabeth Gruen novel Water For Elephants, will play Eric Packer. A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place. Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film.

As Pattinson and his Twilight Saga castmates plan their careers after the series is completed--Bill Condon is directing the final film right now, Pattinson is following a path based on strong filmmakers and tasteful source material. He took the role because he is a big fan of Cronenberg's work and an admirer of DeLillo's books. He's repped by WME and 3 Arts.

god, that's going to be an awful movie.  also, it's not sci-fi...just kind of esoteric and atmospheric.

i wouldn't trust fincher to adapt Cosmopolis.  It's not even one of DeLillo's best!

Is the novel any good? I always have less trepidation about filmmakers adapting literary work that isn't all that hot to begin with.

Okay, okay. Let's stop with the 3D thing already. Please.

Quote
Baz Luhrmann said that he has "workshopped" his upcoming film The Great Gatsby in 3D, though he has not made a final decision about whether to shoot the Carey Mulligan/Leonardo DiCaprio project that way or not. The director made the remark in Las Vegas over the weekend, where he sat on the "Technology in Hollywood: The Director’s Vision" panel with Oliver Stone. Stone cautioned against the decision: "Don’t shoot a 3D movie unless you can afford it, otherwise you are putting yourself under enormous pressure," he said.

There will be a 3D flop sooner rather than later and 3D will balance out.

Wow... So the Green Hornet DVD leaked, and the thread where it was posted is about three pages of "Not even worth the 30 second download -- please kill me now." 

It's the most violently negative reaction I've seen on secret site #2.  Haven't looked at the other site yet... But it's enough to turn me off.

Apparently Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry did a lot of disagreeing.

I'm not a fan of Seth Rogan. It's not that he's bad by any stretch of the imagination. His movies just always leave me "meh."
