pionar: "This movie needs less Michael Caine and more Michael Keaton!"

What is Michael Keaton up to these days, anyway?
2004-08-26 01:29:57 AM  
Holy fark, i saw this at apple.com/trailers a few days ago and was gonna add it, but i saw that the trailer sucked, so i DIDN'T!
2004-08-26 01:34:21 AM  
Better trailer/movie: FARSCAPE
2004-08-26 01:40:28 AM  
I wanna see Chris Walken and John Malkovich in the same movie ):
2004-08-26 01:40:50 AM  

Did someone say Keaton?

sounds gay

Four generations of men are suddenly brought together by the chance to uncover the truth about their family's past. When their eldest member passes away, the remaining trio embarks on a journey that takes them out on the road and into a world full of surprises -- some comic, some dramatic, and all of them personal. Stars Michael Caine, Christopher Walken, Josh Lucas, Glenne Headly and Jonah Bobo

I can sadly tell for sure it's gona blow :(

When they tell almost all the story in a trailer its normally a sure sign that its gona blow.

They normaly do that in a total act of desperation, attempting to get you involved with the story, even if they know they are spoiling it all before you can even see it.

haven't seen Walken dance like that since he did that music video (anybody remember the song/group?)

Fatboy Slim - Weapon of Choice

You can blow wit' this
Or you can blow wit' that
You can blow wit' this
Or you can blow wit' that
You can blow wit' this
Or you can blow wit' that
Or you can blow wit' us...

Seams that the lyrics talk about the movie... :(

looks like shiat
2004-08-26 03:49:00 AM  
The song that was played during the trailer is a remake of Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You". It was also covered by Ray Charles. I don't know if the movie will be worth a shiat or not, but the song is great.
2004-08-26 03:53:52 AM  
I forgot to mention that Leon Russell wrote it.
2004-08-26 04:02:41 AM  
Guys, I'll be honest, a dancing Walken is a good Walken.
2004-08-26 04:24:18 AM  
Sounds like an interesting character study. Any time you have a story that revolves around multiple generations you get to see how a personal connection of that strength (father/son grandfather/grandson) can affect a person. It allows the writer to explore not only the interconnections between a character and his immediate environment, but also those of his family, that thing that helped mold him into what he is. It truly allows for a study of the concepts of nature vs. nurture, especially when if revolves around such a tight familial group as a patriarchial or matriarchial line.

/end bullshiat

Thank you, Illfindsomething. I l-o-v-e-d watching the video again! It never gets old.
2004-08-26 05:27:34 AM  
I know it makes me ghey but it gave me goosebumps
2004-08-26 06:02:15 AM  
What the fark is so special about this guy that he's got his own tag?

He's ugly and a bad actor.

Or is he the guy who made Duke suck? This would explain a lot...
2004-08-26 07:12:09 AM  
I tried to read the synopsis, but the no-Flash-talent assclown who made that site used a font that matches 90% of the background color. Get a clue, moran!

/unless he can see the future, I may not see this flick

Paddy: "No, no, no, don go, woulyu like somuh shampainya?"

Just start with The Deer Hunter
2004-08-26 08:49:49 AM  
I will go see it.

/old fart

Holy crap.

Someone liked 'Envy'. That's gotta be one of top fifteen worst movies ever.
2004-08-26 09:22:18 AM  
I hope he explains about the pantomime again...I didnt quite understand the first time.
2004-08-26 09:30:37 AM  
Walken has his own tag?

/new Farker
2004-08-26 09:42:49 AM  
Its a tag that used to be used alot, but that was years ago. Walken is one of the cornerstone cliches of the site.

And for the record...

Walken should only be allowed to do mob movies, war movies, and comedies. No serious shiat.
2004-08-26 10:19:03 AM  
How can you say that the trailer makes you think that the movie's gonna suck? What's so bad about the trailer that sends vibes of warning to you Walken fanatics (which I am one btw.)? This is one of the few trailers in recent years that doesn't suck. Let's just hope that it didn't give the whole movie away.
2004-08-26 10:25:03 AM

I agree. And he's had a dodgy record with comedies too lately. Go back to being a psycho, Chris.
2004-08-26 11:01:22 AM  
Looks like it'll be something to watch out for. Possibly after it comes out on DVD...
2004-08-26 11:29:58 AM  
...all of you blasphemers will pay in hell, and I don't mean the one with lakes of fire and all that crap...I'm talking about the hell that is the place where Walken is not. Walken is a farking God, and everybody who says otherwise, gets buckwheats...

/would buy Walken's grocery receipt on e-bay...
2004-08-26 12:39:19 PM  
I wonder if he is gonna have to hide chunks of metal up his ass.

Walken and Caine!!!

2004-08-26 01:09:27 PM  
Good God...Michael Caine has been in so many gawdawful films. Forget the one (fluke) Oscar -- the man can't 'open' a film.
Saw the trailer last wknd... Walken aside -- who looks ashen and pathetic in this -- the trailer was without hooks. Nothing about the trailer made me want to go see the movie.
And the person who wrote "any time you have a story about a family..." okay, good point -- UNLESS the movie is poorly executed and the script sucks, etc. Moran.
I'll be surprised if it's more than mediocre.

Two sailors dance through life
on the never ending quest for beer
they say poetic justice
is justice you'll never hear

Through the years
of struggle and strife
the two sailors have
a wonderful life

The shillings they share
grow the care
of bumpy rocky road numbing

Awaken, ye sailor, thoust trippest hard.
Again take my advice, liveth not by the card.

Wisdom beckons, honor thy chess.
Tis a King who wanders free
tis a fool who takes a life.

By the card ye live by thy wit,
by the board ye deal with Armies
2004-08-26 01:21:20 PM  
The absolute last thing in the world I would want to do is have to talk with my father and grandfather. Praise be to Allah, they are both dead, and we are better off for having lost them.

/MIchael Caine is also good and I don't mind that he appears in crap movies becaue they pay him millions of dollars. I wish I could appear in a crap mocie fdor millions of dollars.
2004-08-26 01:21:44 PM  
I really really believe that Christopher Walken should play the role of Willy Wonka in the upcoming film. Not that I don't like Depp, but Walken would be a great Wonka.
2004-08-26 01:31:52 PM  

you just may have the most kickass name of all time....
2004-08-26 01:32:01 PM  
Sparks: Okay. The crew's not gonna take this, Skip. It's like, remember, the, "The Caine Mutiny?"

Murphy: "Caine Mutiny?" I love Michael Caine. (He puts on a cockney Michael Caine accent.) Goodnight, you, princes of Sealab. You kings o' the ocean.

Sparks: Aw, not again with this -

Murphy: (as Michael Caine) People're always askin' me, 'What's it all about, Alfie?'
Murphy: (on screen) Have to hide my dirty sheets! Oh, Michael Caine would be so ashamed of me.. Nn-nn-nn-ng!
Murphy: (shocked) Hnh! (inner monologue) Stormy knows my filthy secret! I have to eliminate him. Now what would Oscar-winner Michael Caine do?
2004-08-26 01:47:10 PM  
Um... it's only been a month or two since The Stepford Wives... but hopefully this one will be a good movie.
2004-08-26 01:50:15 PM

I saw the trailer for Collateral and thought it looked like crap. I still went to see the movie with a friend and it's one of the best of the year imo.

Trailers usually suck.

*runs as the mobs race out to beat Paddy senseless*
2004-08-26 02:44:32 PM  
At Close Range was stark, minimalist and unsettling. My personal favorite of the Walken's movies featuring a very young Kiefer Sutherland.

Check it out if you missed it.

Oh lord. Not another uncomfortable piece of metal scene.

And then there were twenty seven.
At the door.
Behind the wall.
Over the dale.
Through the wooded glen.
Behind yon window glass.
Under the bridge.
In the sky.
Green lenses at night.
Black kites abound.
Peer under thy concrete, oh bank teller.
