Not really, no. If I had to pick, I'd go for Weisz. I know that's terrible to say, but there's something about Kunis that rubs me the wrong way.  The dark side I sense in her...

I think that's what I like about her.

Fine. Go into the cave. You won't like what you find.

I'm surprised we don't have a Bourne thread.

Anyway, trailer for the... what, reboot? "Sidequel?"

Yes, The Bourne Legacy is a "sidequel." And you know what?

It was awesome.

This one's all story though haven't they all been? It's a lean, mean action machine that takes place either right after or maybe even in tandem with the events of The Bourne Ultimatum. Basically a bunch of stuff has leaked about the CIA's genetic ops programs in the wake of Jason's Bourne's adventures and the CIA decided to shut down Treadstone's sister program Alcom, wiping all all the ops except our hero, Aaron Cross. Rachel Weisz plays the lone survivor of the labs where the ops are processed and Cross finds her because he still needs the meds provided by the program. Bourne style country jumping and action ensue.

Is a bit rehashy of Supremacy? Sort of, but who cares once you're in the big bike chase through Manilla at the end. REEEEEEAAAAAANNNNNNNOOOOWWWWWWW!!!!

Now Universal needs to do one more with Renner before throwing a ton of money at Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass for the big kablooie finale where Bourne and Cross team up to take the whole conspiracy down.

Actually, with all the "hidden" op programs, they could just swap out new actors and tell "sidequel" stories forever... or at least until people stop watching which based on Legacy's numbers isn't happening anytime soon.

Watching this tonight with wine and a loaded assault rifle.

Watching The Girl now...

I should probably note that I think both Hopkins and Toby Jones are the wrong pick to play Hitchcock. Neither can do him well...

If I were casting, I'd say Maury Chaykin with a false lip. Wouldn't that be perfect?

I watched Rise of the Guardians last night, which was fun enough - with great animation - until the last, moralistic line of the movie which was, "kids, if the moon ever tells you anything, listen to it!"

Extremely creepy and filling my head full of, "the moon told me to kill mommy" scenes I cackled out aloud during credits.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

I'm rereading old movie threads because I'm in heavy procrastination mode. I've done Batman And Transformers so far and am about to jump into Spider-Man.

The news has been slow. The culture news, too. Maybe everyone is getting ready for the spring. Star Trek premieres and Doctor Who's 50th starts... Maximum sci-fi velocity!

Re-watching Wargames...and it kind of holds up.

So what are the great proto-cyberpunk flicks? Wargames, Hackers, and Sneakers, right?

Reggie?
