Now that we are well on our way in the new year, I've decided to discuss and preview some upcoming releases this year. Feel free to chime in on what films you are looking forward to the most this year. I've done my best to organize films by genre and date.

FUNNY PAPERS

HELLBOY-April 2nd

Directed by Guillermo Del Toro
Del Toro follows up Blade 2 with an even more obscure comic book character, being Mike Mignola's Hellboy. Del Toro wrote and directed this movie and was pretty much given free reign by Sony to make this project with the $60 million dollar budget. I'm a serious Hellboy fan, and I take the source material very seriously. I want to believe that Del Toro can pull this off, but the trailer really gave me some bad "LXG" type vibes. The inclusion of generic, white, expository, plot device kid Special Agent John Myers (Rupert Evans) bothers me, as well as Niles Crane as the voice of Abe Sapien. Ron Perlman as the one and only Anung Un Rama is an interesting choice, and I honestly hope the story of the Anti-Christ summoned to earth but just wants to watch cartoons and drink beer is a good one on screen.

THE PUNISHER-April 16th

Directed by Jonathan Hensleigh
Marvel's got a lot to prove now after 2003. X2 was great, but they missed with Daredevil and The Hulk, who's chances of having shots at long running franchises are pretty much dead. This remake now featuring Thomas Jane over the brooding Dolph Lundgren (who was actually not bad in the crappy original) as Frank Castle, a vigilante who's family is killed by Saturday Night Fever (John Travolta) and decides to punish bad guys. This is the directorial debut of usual hack action movie screenwriter, Hensleigh. Oh the problems of this movie. First you take the Punisher out of his element in the dark, urbane inner areas of NYC and put him in...bright, sunny, FLORIDA?! I believe it was Stone Cold Steve Austin that used to say, "EH-EH!" Second you cast Rebecca Romijn Stamos as Joan The Mouse, and third...WWE wrestler Kevin Nash as the Russian. If you're going to cast a wrestler to play The Russian, the one guy to do it is the Big Show. I love the Punisher comics especially War Journal and Welcome Back Frank by Garth Ennis, which this new film is partially based on, but in the end this movie is likely a trainwreck waiting to happen. It might have some trouble if it's released the same day as Kill Bill Volume 2 which it appears to be now.

GARFIELD: THE MOVIE-June 18th

Directed by Peter Hewitt
Here's the proof of crappiness all by watching the teaser trailer for this movie: Risky Business music starts playing, the cat is in sunglasses, the cat dances. Do you need anything else? Yes even Bill Murray is willing to sell out a little, just like the Garfield creator.

SPIDER-MAN II-July 2nd

Directed by Sam Raimi
Uh-oh, Satipo's back, and now with a $200 million dollar budget he's going to finally get his revenge on Indiana Jones. But since Indy is now in his 60's, dating Callista Flockhart, and making crappy sub flicks and shitty comedies with Josh Hartnett, he feels the good Dr. Jones has suffered enough. So Satipo has decided to do the next best thing and use his 4 big metal tentacles to take out Spidey. Spidey's got it rough, because after rejecting the love of his life MJ in order to protect her, she started dating Spidey-lite, Jake Gyllenhaal. So Spidey is going to need all the CGI help he can get from John Dykstra in order to vanquish Satipo and get the girl. He's also going to have to hope that lawsuit with Marvel and Sony turns out ok, considering that Marvel wants to terminate their licensing agreement with Sony, which would suck because it took so long for the first one to get made.

CATWOMAN-July 30th

Directed by Pitof
It could've taken a pancake to figure out this one was bad news. I'd like to see how eager Halle Berry would go rushing back to Fox for X3 after this one tanks, especially after MGM opted not to make a spinoff movie of her crappy character, Jinx, from Die Another Day. There are a lot of rumors and controversy online surrounding this disastrous project, and the fact that the story or characters hardly resemble anything in the comics just shows that Time Warner is getting what it deserves. So long as DC comics is under the boot of WB and has no creative say in projects based on their source material, forever will the dark side dominate the destiny of DC comic characters on film. Would Time Warner be so bold to hold this project back so it doesn't kill the momentum for Christopher Nolan's Batman? We shall see.

BLADE: TRINITY-August 13th
Directed by David S. Goyer
Writer and co-producer of the Blade movie series comes into direct his second film to bring the trilogy of the daywalker to a close. Dracula is back, and this time he's got help from WWE world champion, Jean Paul Levesque (HHH). But Blade's got help from Van Wilder and Mary Camden! This is going to be one Royal Rumble.

MAN-THING-August 27th

Directed by Brett Leonard
from the director of Virtuousity and The Lawn-mower Man comes MAN-THING! To those who are wondering, Man-Thing is Marvel Comics discount, poor-man's, hobo version of Swamp Thing. I'm not sure if this film is going straight video or getting theatrical release, but maybe a few people will check it out.

THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER-August

Directed by Lance Mungia
The director of Six String Samurai now helms this, the fourth Crow movie now starring Edward Furlong. I dunno, last I heard Furlong had some drug problems, did he work those out? Anyway, WB's Angel turns to the darkside in this film and whacks Furlong who comes back and for revenge like the other 2 crappy sequels and the first good movie starring the late Brandon Lee. Based on the James O'Barr comic book series.

CONSTANTINE-September 27th

Directed by Francis Lawrence
Y'see there's this DC/Vertigo comic book series called Hellblazer. It's about this crude, grungy Brit wanker named John Constantine. Constantine is a chainsmoking sot of an antihero and he's a detective of supernatural phenomenon. On one occassion his bad habits land him with lung cancer, and all the bad karma he's racked up in life has earned him a straight ticket to the hot place. Now from what I understand the hollywood idiots are adapting this wonderful Hellblazer story (THREE LORDS OF HELL, check it) for the film...the problem? They made John Constantine a fucking yank American bastard and cast Keanu Reeves in the lead role. So that's automatic sucktitude right there, I mean you can't go any more wrong for this type of movie by making the character American and being played by Neo. Sometimes Hollywood has to learn the easiest lessons the hardest way, this is going to be one of those times.

What have we learned today? Comic book movies for the most part still suck. Hollywood needs to learn to stick to the source material like Spider-man or X-men for starters for these films to be any good, and if you don't you end up with bloated flops like LXG or The Hulk. It's too bad really, I think a Hellblazer movie would've been cool if done properly. Catwoman doesn't give me much hope for Batman 5 either.

I remember this past August or September going to the Internet Movie Database and checking what movies were due out this year....and it doesn't look good. Some of the titles....I just had to laugh:

"Deuce Bigalow: Electric Gigalo"?

"The Calcium Kid"?

"Footloose"?!?!?!!

Well, Footloose did come out in 1984, so the whole twenty-year thing is there. But seriously...A theatrical release for twenty years of FOOTLOOSE?!?

For a complete a list as you'll find for 2004 releases, check out Film Releases.com.

Lots of sequels and remakes that just boggle my mind. Was the first Scooby Doo movie that successful? Agent Cody Banks 2? And who decided Michael Bay needed to get his paws on The Amityville Horror?

Man-Thing came first. Man-Thing was guarding the Nexus of all Realities and dealing with cosmic beings LONG before Alan Moore turned Swamp Thing into anything other than another DC character.

I recall somewhere hearing that Man-Thing & Swamp Thing both made their debuts within three months or so of each other.

TO GOOGLE!!

MAN-THING [Marvel] Created by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway & Gray Morrow in 1971, first appearing in Savage Tales #1 first published May 1971.
SWAMP THING [DC] Created by Len Wein & Berni Wrightson in 1971, first appearing in House of Secrets #92 first published June & July 1971.
According to Toonopedia; both characters were loosely based on an old Hillman Periodicals character called The Heap, but since nobody really read the Heap, it's sheer coincidence that the two characters debuted so close together. The only thing more confusing is the two Captain Marvels.

CAPTAIN MARVEL [DC/Fawcett] debuted in 1940 in Whiz Comics under the Fawcett Comics banner. Fawcett got sued because of Marvel's resemblence to Superman and eventually bought out Fawcett after the suit was settled. After a few decades in limbo, Captain Marvel was brought back by DC. He later joined the Justice League.
CAPTAIN MARVEL [Marvel] debuted in 1967 in Marvel Super-Heroes #12 when Marvel Comics realzed that they owned the trademark to the word "Marvel", and created their own Captain Marvel. He got killed off and replaced with a new Captain Marvel (the son of the first) in 1995. Between the two, a woman called herself Captain Marvel, but then changed her name to Photon in 1995.

I'll probably only see Spiderman 2. I hate going to the movie theater because they always overheat it for some reason. So I only went to the theater four times in 2003.

I might see Artemis Fowl if it looks good. I liked the book.

Now last time I heard, Kill Bill Volume 2 was delayed two months to the release date of April 16th which I think I kind of mentioned above. I don't know if that's an official release date or not though.

My apologies about the man-thing issue. I grew up more of a Swamp Thing fan, and when man-thing first became known to me, he just came off to me as Marvel's version of the Swamp Thing character.

I thought I read somewhere that they were making some major changes to Catwoman including the story and that wretched costume. Still not convinced it would be any good though.

And even though it was horrible Scooby Doo did make 150 mil which was probably close enough in the top 10 movies of the year. So yes, it did do good enough for them to want to do a sequel. It's just mind boggling how good some movies do. Like 190 mil for MIB II.

Agent Cody Banks on the other hand, I have no clue what they are thinking.

Even at his advanced age for the part, I still want Sting (that's Gordon Sumner, not Steve Borden), since that's who Moore based the look of the character on.

Yes - Tarantino says he wants to debut it at the Cannes Film Festival -- most accounts say he simply wouldn't be finished for a February release.

Another reason I love Sam Raimi: they give him over a hundred million dollars to make the second Spider-Man flick, and the only reason for delays thus far was Tobey Maguire's back injury.

I can't believe that the Punisher film is going to be set in Miami ... maybe they should have just gotten Dolph Lundgren to play the lead ... oh wait ...

Spidey 2 does look pretty cool ... that's a definite view.

This next section is a little more general as I decided to incorporate period dramas and such.

SWORD, SANDALS, SCIENCE FICTION, AND FANTASY

THE PASSION OF CHRIST-February 25th

Directed by Mel Gibson
Mel Gibson's controversial third movie which he funded out of his own pocket gets released next month. Featuring the Count Monte Cristo (Jim Caviezal) as Jesus of Nazareth and Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalena. This movie was screened last December at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin where Mel Gibson also appeared, and critical buzz and evaluation of the film has been positive thus far despite controversy.

VAN HELSING-May 7th

Directed by Stephen Sommers
Y'see, in his pre-Xmen days before adamantium was bonded to his Skeleton, Wolverine was actually a Dutch guy that liked to dress up like Vampire Hunter D and went by the name of Abraham Van Helsing. The Duke (Richard Roxburg) also used to dress up like gothic Euro-trash and went by the name of Dracula and had quite a few tussles with Logan and his trusty weapons maker, Faramir (David Wenham) in his post Middle-Earth days. Van Helsing has claimed the coveted early May release date, a time in which Stephen Sommers films have performed very well in before.

SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW-?

Directed by Kerry Conran
This movie was shot entirely in blue screen with live actors. Well, I guess George Lucas would be proud. The look of this movie is very retro but also odd, and I have a feeling it will end up being way too experimental for it's own good. Angelina Jolie, good actress, but once again trying to do a stupid British accent which she's proven she can't do...but the eye patch is kind of sexy. Maybe she'll date Snake Plissken. Jude Law playing the titular dashing hero in this film, you know he's dating Sienna Miller now? That's so unfair. I mean if he was the guy that got to marry Britney Spears over the weekend I wouldn't care, but I had dibbs on Sienna.

TROY-MAY 14th

Directed by Wolfgang Peterson
Well I guess it's still good to see now matter how against war Hollywood and liberals are in general, its still ok to glorify and exploit it and juicy, gritty, bloody violence on celluloid and why is that? Because it pays the bills baby. In this epic, Achilles (Brad Pitt) teams up with Boromir to go after Bruce Banner and pretty boy Legolas after he whisks away some hot german booty by the name of Helen. The script for this movie was written by David Benioff, and I'm not sure if a sequel based on Homer's Odyssey is planned if the first film is a success. Cool fact, Brad Pitt actually suffered an Achilles heel injury during the production of this film...he also needed a body double for his legs as well. Anyone ever see Brad Pitt's legs? Ugly chicken wings they are.

SHREK 2-May 21st

Directed by Andrew Adamson, Kelly Asbury, Conrad Vernon
The sequel of the first picture to win an Academy Award for best animated feature, with all of the voice actors from the first film returning. I think its important to note that this film does NOT boast the Academy Award nominated writing talents of Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio who also did Pirates of the Carribbean and Mask of Zorro, so I think that could cause a bit of a detraction in quality.

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN-June 4th
Directed by Alfonso Cuaron
The third Harry Potter film, this time directed by Cuaron of "Y Tu Mama Tambien" fame. In this film Harry must be weary of Gary Oldman as...well it's a movie with Gary Oldman, what do you think he's playing? A psycho that's what...or is he? Michael Gambon takes over for the late Richard Harris as Dumbledore in this film. For Richard Harris enthusiasts, check out Cassandra's Crossing or The Count of Monte Cristo.

THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK-JUNE 11th
Directed by David Twohy
The sequel to Pitch Black which is supposed to be the first part of a three part trilogy. I don't really know how Twohy was able to convince the studios to greenlight a 100 million dollar sequel for a moderate cult hit that made about only 40 million in 2000 (kind of reminds you of Terminator 1 and 2 huh?). This film will probably really test Vin Diesel's drawing power and his career direction as a whole. The trailer made me a bit curious, bits of it reminded me of Battlefield Earth and Matrix Revolutions...but some of it also gave me fond memories of Frank Herbert's Dune.

KING ARTHUR-July 7th

Directed by Antoine Fuqua
Back in the day, King Arthur (Clive Owen) was a real dude that dressed up like Maximus from Gladiator and lady Guinivere (Keira Knightley) was a soldier that fought in the frontlines. I really don't know about this one. I think Clive Owen is a very inspired choice to play Arthur, but this whole "historical" approach sounds kind of weird. For some reason I doubt this will unseat Boorman's EXCALIBUR as the definitive Arthur film.

I, ROBOT-July 16th
Directed by Alex Proyas
Well Alex Proyas finally gets to do a big budget sci-fi movie, but it's starring Will Smith...and...Bridget Moynahan in a film based on Isaac Asimov's work. I think Proyas is a talented, creative guy, but I question the legitimacy of this picture with Smith as the lead, especially if this is supposed to be a serious movie, something IMHO Will Smith isn't very good at. But in the end, I hope Proyas can pull off a great, cerebral Sci-fi film like Bladerunner and not something like Paycheck.

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR-August 6th

Directed by Paul "NOT THOMAS" Anderson
You guys know the tagline for this film? "Whoever wins...we lose." Now IF I was Scott Keith, this is where I'd say, "I love shoot comments that aren't supposed to be shoot comments." It's true really, no matter who wins, the audience will lose because this film is going to suck major crank. Fox will probably bet on it having some novelty factor with the audience much like Freddy vs. Jason, but that won't keep audiences from figuring out how bad this film is.

RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE-September 10th

Directed by Alexander Witt
Great another bad video game movie that's a sequel to yet another bad video game movie. Milla Jovovich is back as Alice and now has to team up with Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) to escape Racoon City. I think this film is based on Resident Evil: Nemesis. It's too bad really, this series might've turned out better if George Romero got to do it as originally planned, but oh well. Has there ever been a good video game movie?

J.M. BARRIE'S NEVERLAND-October 8th

Directed by Marc Forster
This is Forster's follow-up to Monster's Ball. Anyone remember that one? It's the one where Halle Berry had gratuitous, hot, athletic, sweaty sex with Billy Bob? In this film, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) portrays James Barrie and documents his life in 1904 when he began writing Peter Pan. Anyone see that new Peter Pan flick that tanked? Was it any good?

THE INCREDIBLES-November 5th
Directed by Brad Bird
This very well could be the second to last film Pixar makes under the Disney brand. From the director of Iron Giant, another animated gem that looks great and Pixar has yet to disappoint, a film about a family of superheroes trying to live an average, everyday, suburban life. Features the voices of Craig Nelson, Jason Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, and Holly Hunter.

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: THE MOVIE-NOVEMBER 19th

Directed by Sherm Cohen, H.C. Greenblatt
Well, took them long enough. One of the most popular animated characters today finally debuts on celluloid, and the question that's been bugging us for five years will finally be answered...is Squidward or isn't he? I still want to know the secret ingredients of the Crabby patties so I can make my own, though I doubt it will be as good as a Fuddrucker's.

TRISTAN AND ISOLDE-?
Directed by Kevin Reynolds
There's not very much I know about this film other than that its a period piece featuring a knight named Tristan (James Franco) who has an affair with a married future queen, Isolde (Sophia Myles). I think Reynolds got his directing career back on track after Monte Cristo, and he's proven adept at swashbuckling and/or midevil period dramas so I'll definitely check this one out.

GHOST IN THE SHELL: INNOCENCE-?
Directed by Mamoru Oshii
This is the long-awaited sequel to the original Ghost In Shell film. I'm not really sure how this will tie into the 2 television series, one of which I believe will be showing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block later this year. The animation for this film looks amazing, and hopefully it will get some kind of decent theatrical release in the United States.

That's about all I have for today. Very interesting plate of films we have for 2004 though wouldn't you say?

If the trailer is any indication, "detraction in quality" is an understatement. It apparently takes place just after Shrek's wedding and basically involves the reaction of the in-laws.

I don't think it's a stretch to predict that all of the comic book movies aside from Spider-Man 2(and maybe Hellboy) are going to suck. Punisher just does not work as a PG-13 movie....it has to be R and it has to be a hard R, since the whole appeal of the comic is seeing Frank kill a whole ton of people.

The second section of movies looks much more interesting. I think Neverland might end up being a possible Oscar nominated role for Johnny Depp...he's always good, and this could be the kind of showy biopic role that usually get nominated.



Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

    This is the long-awaited sequel to the original Ghost In Shell film. I'm not really sure how this will tie into the 2 television series, one of which I believe will be showing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block later this year. The animation for this film looks amazing, and hopefully it will get some kind of decent theatrical release in the United States.




If you've seen the japanese movie Shall We Dansu? you'd be interested to know that the dude that played Tomio Aoki (he thought he was a latin dancer) is playing Kim in Innocence: GitS
