HELP! WE ARE STUCK IN A GOOD MOVIE!!!


« on: November 21, 2007, 11:46:20 PM »

Has anyone scene the previews???

It has Will Smith in it.  It looks good.  He is the last man on earth.

I think that it is funny, I was reading my Discover or Scientific American and there is a article entitled "No Man's Land".  It is about what could happen if man just dissapeared.  I would like to see this movie.

What do you guys think?????

Later,

John

Being the film has been done twice before...(Vincent Price in The LAST MAN on EARTH and Charleton Heston in the OMEGA MAN) I guess we'll just have to wait and see. The Price version is an old favorite...but I'm not one of those who blindly thinks the original is better. It all depends. But comparing Will Smith to Vinnie...meh...

 If they stick closly to the Richard (the INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN,TheLEGEND OF HELL HOUSE) Matheson  story...well ,...I guess I'll have to wait and see.

That's also Richard "Twilight Zone" Matheson as well.  He wrote some of the best episodes of the original series.

I love The Last Man on Earth, Price does such an excellent job. I can take of leave the Omega Man.

I'm going to have to give the new version a watch before I judge it. What will ruin it for me is Will starts throwing his little Willisms around.

Robert Neville (the main character) is the last normal man on earth. Everyone else has succumbed to a virus which has transformed them into vampires.  I don't know how they will end this new version, but I hope they don't paint some rosie picture at the end.

Looks interesting but some parts of the trailer remind me a bit too much of 28 Days Later which I despised.

As long as there are no "Aww, hell naw!" moments in the movie, I'll go see it.  I will walk out at the first Will Smith-ism.

Has he ever made a movie without them?  It's like Schwarzenegger and his one-liners.  I'm predicting you'll leave within the first 30 minutes.

P.S.  I like Schwarzenegger and his one-liners.   TongueOut

I actually am curious about this. Most early reports made it sound like a pretty straight remake of "The Omega Man," which I like alot but they really shouldn't name the film after the book if its just going to be a remake of TOM. However, after seeing the trailer, this appears to be much more thoughtful and quiet then I expected. At the least, the emphasis seems to be more on thrills then action.

Will Smith can be a good actor and has prove so several times in the past. ("Six Degrees of Seperation," "Ali," "The Pursuit of Happiness") Granted, none of those are great movies, but Smith actually acts in them beyond his typical persona. This appears to be more along those lines. In Fangoria, the director, Francis Lawerence, the guy who did "Constantine," which I liked, says he attempted to make a "mainstream art-house film" with "I Am Legend" which is also pretty promising.

That's "Happyness"   Lookingup

I might be good movie but a homeless, crying Will Smith in a subway bathroom isn't my idea of an uplifting movie.  And the title is spelled wrong...

Of course the title is spelled wrong on purpose, as it ties in with something in the film. Wink

That's kinda funny considering that this movie project has been in development for several years and Arnold was the first actor attached to it.

I'm looking forward to seeing this movie.  It comes out in early December here.  I really like Will Smith and his -isms.

I like the idea of the movie but I've never seen Omega Man with Charlton Heston.  I might watch that one first because it's more readily available.

The guy the movie is based on gave a speech at my school.  He came across as overly self-serving and arrogant, with a whole lot of false modesty.  It made me even less interested in the film.

That said, I Am Legend is getting very mediocre reviews.  Seriously, people pretty much say "it isn't really good or bad, just meh!".  So don't expect too much.

Well, I've been kind of hoping for this to do well, as I absolutely love the original novel, and quite a lot of Matheson's other work (don't forget he also did some of those Roger Corman Poe flicks), and I can think of much worse choices than Will Smith in the lead.  But this early review does make me feel a little uneasy.  I've had a bad feeling they may have messed up ever since the director said they were going with the CGI route with the Not-Vampires (and what exactly is wrong with practical make-up effects?), and when I heard they were re-shooting the ending.  It probably won't stop me going to see it though, but I'm still expecting a dissapointment after the years of build-up.

I was at the store yesterday and I found out that The Omega Man is on HD DVD!  LOL!  Wow!  It's come a long way since I saw it on TNT ages ago.
