Should We Hope For Or Against A Die Hard 6?
In his review, Sean called it "silly, incoherent and cartoonish to a fault." For her part, Kristy's disappointment was so crushing that she had a meltdown only GIFs could properly depict. Yet when it comes to whether we should hope for a Die Hard 6, they found themselves ready to spar in a Great Debate.
Is J.J. Abrams The Right Guy For Star Wars: Episode VII?
A cursory scan of Twitter revealed more of a schism in the sci-fi fanbase than we would have expected. Abrams, after all, is the guy who helped launch “Lost,” reboot Star Trek and idolize Steven Spielberg in the largely supported Super 8. He’s the perfect guy for this new gig … right?
Do We Need A Gremlins Reboot?
Yesterday word hit that Warner Bros is in talks with Steven Spielberg's Amblin about relaunching Gremlins, which has spurred both cheers and outrage from fans of Gizmo and the gang. Here at Cinema Blend we're divided on the issue. Sean's already exhausted from the recent rash of '80s remakes, and Kristy is optimistic about its possibilities.
Is A Zack Snyder Star Wars Movie A Good Idea?
It was the news we had been waiting for, but not the news we were expecting to get. After months of speculation about who might direct the Star Wars Episode VII that Disney and Lucasfilm have been promising for months, word came down that Man of Steel and 300's Zack Snyder was directing a Star Wars movie
Should We Be Looking Forward To Jurassic Park 4?
Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is an undeniable classic. Not only was the film a true phenomenon when it was first released – making nearly a billion dollars worldwide as a critical hit – it has aged marvelously with effects that look as good as ever. The same things, sadly, can’t be said about the franchise as a whole.
Are Anne Hathaway's Oscar Dreams Already Over?
From the moment Les Miserables first screened for critics, nearly everyone seemed content to declare the Best Supporting Actress race over, with Anne Hathaway's performance as Fantine so powerful she could easily walk away with every award there was. Then neither the NYFCC or the NBR chose her for their awards, going with Lincoln's Sally Field and Compliance's Ann Dowd, respectively
Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt Playing Batman In Justice League A Good Idea?
It's just a rumor for now, but a completely fascinating one, and one that opens up all kinds of strange possibilities for the story a Justice League movie would tell. The biggest hurdle, of course, is that Gordon-Levitt isn't Bruce Wayne, and would be a tie-in to Nolan's universe in which, of course, Christian Bale is Bruce Wayne. Would a Justice League really do away with Bruce Wayne entirely and stick with a character Nolan invented for his third Batman film?
Should The Next James Bond Movie Bring Back Ernst Stavro Blofeld?
It’s not a controversial thing to say that Skyfall is one of the best James Bond films ever made. In reality, it’s almost becoming fact. The film makes brilliant use of absolutely everything we love about 007 while operating within a story that is both action-packed and cerebral. But perhaps what’s most exciting about the movie is just how excited it’s making everyone for the future of the franchise.
Will Seth MacFarlane Be A Better Awards Host Than Tina Fey And Amy Poehler?
It's a good year for people who like to see unexpected names take over awards show, now that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been tapped to host the Oscars, while at the Golden Globes old pals and funny ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be holding court. It gives a lot of reason to be excited about both shows in a way we wouldn't be otherwise
Great Debate: What's The Best Kind Of Time Travel Story?
Much as we love Pitch Perfect, the big release of this weekend is undeniably Looper, the time travel thriller in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a hit man in the future, who's suddenly assigned to assassinate… himself, only 30 years older and played by Bruce Willis
Great Debate: Who Should Direct Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes?
We have no say in who will get the job, of course, but that doesn't mean we won't chime in anyway. Below Sean and I discuss who we think ought to get the Rise job, whether the studio's rush will doom the film regardless, and whether we're interested in seeing another Apes film without Wyatt on board
Trouble With The Clint: Should Eastwood Have Retired 20 Years Ago?
Are Eastwood’s best days still ahead of him? Or should he have stopped working a while ago? Mack and Sean had differing opinions about the state of Eastwood’s career, so they took it to the Great Debate forums, where they hammered out the specifics of Clint’s past, present and future.
