I donít know. RH3 might be worth watching as Chan and Tucker do make have a good chemistry together. I wonder if they are going to spin a new twist on their comedy routine about not touching a blackís man radio in LA, or Chineseís man CD player in Honk Kong :D

Jet li movie WAR might another one to watch for, but he might be getting too much exposure in Hollywood. He should go back doing more obscure movies with exotic story and settings.

Speaking of rip-offs, have any of you guys actually read any of the Bourne books? I used to read them on planes, and while not literary classics they are page-turners. The movies have none of the tension or characterization...okay, actually the movies are in no way like the books. Obviously a licensing gig for the widow-Ludlum.

I enjoyed the first 2 Bourne flicks as escape into an AC'd theater, coke and popcorn entertainment, so I'll probably see that one, but that's it from that list.

I recently saw an extended preview of Underdog, and if that isn't the most misguided, trainwreck of a movie . . .

Daddy Day Camp too. Absolutely horrible. And the Mr. bean preview, yikes, incredibly unfunny.

And then there's Rush Hour 3. saw a long preview for that too. I swear, I have no idea who really thinks that tired, predictable old junk is funny. Appallingly bad.

I second that, although I wasn't a fan of the BOURNE movies since they deviated so pathetically from the original stories that it just didn't make sense.

Ya know, Cuba Gooding IMO was great in Jerry Maguire, but (and maybe I just haven't been paying attention) it seems like he just disappeared into obscurity. I was expecting him to gain as much recognition as Denzel Washington in dramatic roles. What happened?
Edit: Yes, he won best supporting actor in Jerry Maguire, and I did forget about his role in Pearl Harbor, but nothing he's been in since stands out for me...

Wouldn't it be great if Rush Hour 3 was a really superb movie? I mean, what if they just said to themselves "well, the majority of our potential audience is going to go see this regardless of what we put in it," and then endeavored to make something intelligent, human, original, or just not totally insulting? Some small glimmer in me really wants this to happen.

Saw the tail end of a preview for The Darjeeling Limited yesterday... not sure if that one comes out in August yet or if we have to wait a little longer for it. Either way, highly anticipated by me. "You're my friend, but I'm still going to mace you in the face!"

I think it would be awesome if both characters died in the first 4 minutes of the film and then became a dark tragedy/human interest story. Now THAT would really make people go 'whaaaaa'? I suppose it's moments like that which made me truly appreciate the balls that THE DEPARTED had with its characters!

RUSH HOUR - jokes about Jackie Chan in America.
RUSH HOUR 2 -reverse jokes about Chris Tucker in Hong Kong
RUSH HOUR 3 -double reverse jokes about Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan in Paris

Wow, that's some brilliant recycling of jokes and gags. It's kinda like taking the same script each time and just making things in reverse, this time they took the script from RUSH HOUR and RUSH HOUR 2 and made RUSH HOUR 3....brilliant, just brilliant.

I think I will go see the last legion thingy though... I've always been fascinated by Empires on the decline and the edge of the abyss.

FWIW, I saw the Bourne Ultimatum..probably the only movie I'll see this month.

I'm a big fan of the Ludlum novels, and I moderately enjoyed the first 2 films for what they were - typical action/spy-type movies. Nothing special.

I felt The Bourne Ultimatum was a surprisingly big step up overall from Identity and Supremacy, easily the best of the bunch. Nothing I can really put my finger on, just better execution, and more entertaining throughout. It wasn't my favorite novel. If you liked the first 2, you'll love this one. I gotta give Matt Damon credit - he was the last guy I'd have picked to play Jason Bourne, but he pulled it off.

I'm glad they deviated from the books, I don't think they would have translated all that well to the big screen. But yeah, these are loosely based on the novels.

I hope beyond hope that they DON'T try the Bourne Legacy and Betrayal now...those sucked (well I never read Betrayal but it's the same crappy author).

No, not bird nor plain nor even frog. It's just little old me...WHAM!

That one went over my head GM.

These things just aren't funny once they've been explained. But here goes.

Once upon a time, many years ago, I used to be a kid. Not just a big kid like I am now, but a true little boy. Back then, just after the age of B&W TV, there was a show, or should I say cartoon, called Underdog. I bring this up because it's on the list of movies coming out in August. Remember the thread title? So, I move on. In this show/cartoon there was a dog who could fly. I assume he'll be in the movie. At the beginning of each show/cartoon, characters (in a spoof of Superman) would call out. "Look, up in the sky!" One person would ask, "Is it a bird?" Another would ask, "Is it a plane?" A little girl would ask, "Is it a frog?" A group of people/cartoon characters would say in unison, "A FROG?!" Just then, a streak of light would fly by. (Camera flashes to the flying dog) Doggie says in a bold voice, "No, not bird nor plane nor even frog.." And then he'd crash into something. Sometimes a billboard, or a building or a bridge. Then (with stars circling his head) he'd finish in a timid voice, "Underdog."
I changed Underdog to Under-Aug. Aug being short for August. Under being a refference to under-achieving.

See? Not funny anymore.

I'd sooner cut it off and barbecue it. I'd sooner take that $9.00 and burn it in the back yard. I'd rather give it to some toothless bum on the skids... I'd rather stick needles in my eyes!!!!!!

I think that he meant that you'd enjoy seeing my silly post. Not that you'd enjoy seeing the movie. Give your eyes a break. Pull those needles out and throw a little peroxide on them.
Oh, and BBQ'd flying doggie? Yick. LJ may not want to do that cooking for you. Maybe if you tell him that it's Bambi instead?

AAAAAAAAhhhhh! Saw that movie the other day. I remembered seeing so many people here saying how much they liked it. So when it sucked wind, I kept watching, hoping it would get better. Well, there was the dance at the end that was funny. But I'd rather have those 2 hours of my life back to watch something else.

Dang it Worf! I now can't get the image of you in a little dance outfit out of my head. It's way to early to be subjected to that! :skep:

Kex, glad to hear you liked Ultimatum. I can't wait to see it. Never read the books but I have really liked the movies.

It irks me when people always slam a movie beacuse it deviated from the book. Not all books translate well to the big screen. They need to be "adjusted" to make them entertaining as a movie. I try not to compare movies to the books. I try and judge the movie on it's own merits.
