How does 'it is not technically impossible for me to' become 'vow'?

/I wonder if he'll leave a hair-gitter on his tongue the whole time he does it.
 
2011-01-09 11:44:13 AM
Yeah, because the other ones need to be improved so much. Maybe you can let Affleck "co-write" it and it will be insta-awsome

Bourne again?

"Still Bourne"?

The guy is an Oscar-winning writer and been nominated for multiple other Academy Awards, as long as he hires appropriate help, I wouldn't be surprised if he can pull it off.

Making a Bourne movie without Damon is farking retarded.
 
2011-01-09 12:11:18 PM
Seriously.
I hope this movie tanks, then he does go and make a fourth and it knocks this one out of the park.

The suits will suck dry anything that might turn a buck, thanks to idiots that don't know when to step off the ride.

The first two movies were fun, though the camera work was a little annoying in parts. The 3rd was one of the last things I ever watched on VHS, and by the end I was hoping the franchise would go the way of the VCR. It had run its course and gotten stale. Trying to make Bourne the new Bond and give the character 36 movies takes away part of what made Bourne look so good in the first place. '

But if they absolutely must milk it for all it's worth, please, for the love of whatever it is you want to be loved by, don't do any more of those quick-edit fight scenes.

This. I don't recall seeing anything that Damon was involved with (aside from just acting) that was terrible. I mean, it might exist but I haven't seen it.
 
2011-01-09 12:41:13 PM
I wonder if people ridiculed Eastwood when he wanted to make his own films. We all know how terribly that turned out, right?

/he did have some stinkers, though, like most other directors

There's no way they were still making VHS in '07.

*checks Amazon*

Well, f*ck me to tears. It's selling for .79 cents.

Don't mind me...

What? Isn't the Bourne story over? He no longer has amnesia. He found out his real name is David Webb or whatever. He's taken down the dudes responsible for it all.

Where would it go from there?

Greengrass, you cock, just keep the farking camera on a farking tripod for the love of God. Those two sequels were unwatchable.

That series' fight scenes are among the worst shot I've ever seen, and I've seen both transformers movies.

That television miniseries, movie, whatever, was friggin great. I'd always thought Chamberlain was kind of a hack, but his performance in the original Bourne stuff really impressed me.

I would assume you could have the governments/organizations that he assassinated members of go after him. He apologized to the daughter of his first target as I recall, maybe she could go out for revenge.

It was a good series, and I can see them wanting to keep a series like that alive. More of a gritty 007 type of thing.

He's just pissed because they never let him say:

"I was BOURNE ready!"

I wouldn't mind seeing more movies along the lines of the Bourne flick, but it was a pretty definite story arc. Man wakes up with amnesia, spends the next three flicks figuring out who he is and getting back at the agency who turned him into a killer. They closed the book on the story arc pretty hard, and any more films are just going to feel... tacked on.

1. Take hackneyed, rote plot from any number of movies.
2. Add "Jason Bourne" meme to it.

For example, now that he knows he's David Webb, he attempts to find his family. He's largely broke (hey, that red bank bag had to run empty some time...) and so he hitchhikes into a town in which he believes his father lives, only to be arrested by some trumped-up little badge bearer, tortured at the jailhouse until he flashes back once again to all of his training, beats the snot out of the deputies, and hides in the conveniently placed nearby woods. After some harrowing escapes, he returns to town and proceeds to terrorize it until they can find the guy that programmed him for the CIA to talk him down and take him into custody - but not before he blows away the asshat sheriff.

Call it "First Bourne".

How about a crossover where Bond is assigned to kill Bourne.

Eric Van Lustbader took over writing the character and pumped out six more books, so there's always the option to base it off of that series.

BumpInTheNight: That series' fight scenes are among the worst shot I've ever seen, and I've seen both transformers movies.

The first wasn't bad, but the sequels looked like they were filmed by Michael J Fox.

I lol'ed. You forgot "Film it by tying a rope around the camera and have the cameraman swing it around his head the whole time."

Oh come on. Sure he was a little on the heavy side when he did The Informant! but he's been pretty svelte in most of his other movies.

well, the books support it "going on." The very first book was the story arc that it took 3 movies to hash out, and arguably the second book was better. Of course, they killed marie in the movies and not in the book, which would throw off some of the multi-plot aspect of the book but it would be fixable

Type40: How about a crossover where Bond is assigned to kill Bourne.

BOND SHOULD HAVE REMAINED A 1960s ERA CHARACTER!!!

That's why he sucks now! He's no different than Bourne or any other modern action hero. Bond would be a great franchise again if they left him in the 1960s and made every movie a period piece about cold war era arch-villains, swinging sexuality, superspy cliches, and crazy gadgets.
 
2011-01-10 03:36:20 PM
Identity was great, if slow at times. Supremacy is better than it should be (primarily because of the match of wits between Brian Cox and Joan Allen, two awesome actors), and the camerawork, while shaky, is not nearly as over-the-top as Ultimatum, which was pretty stale. And then there's Green Zone (alt title Bourne to 'Raq), which was just weak.

Handheld /= Shaky cam, Hollywood. Please learn the difference.

For cinephiles, a cool article that takes the piss out of the shaky cam, specifically citing the Bourne series.

Also, here's a Cracked article on the Bourne series that completely misses the point.

I actually agree with this completely, i am reading the books and they are great, would like to see them brought to the screen as is.
