I like Channing Tatum in the same sad way I like Justin Timberlake. Too goddamn good looking, smart and talented to be a real human and he gets all the women. On the one hand I hate it, and the other hand, well, you just gotta give the man props where props are due.

Stockard Channing Tatum O'Neil?


[Michael Caine voice] Did you know that Stockard Channing's first name is actually her birth last name? Not a lot of people know that. [/Michael Caine voice]

edgesrealm: 21 Jump Street was hilarious. The best part though was Ice Cube as the Captain:

"Hey, stop f*ckin' with Korean Jesus. He busy, with Korean Sh*t..."

LMAO.


No the best part was

We're reviving a canceled undercover project from the '80s and revamping it for modern times. The people behind this lack creativity and they've run out of ideas, so what they do now is just recycle shiat from the past and hope that nobody will notice.

Mmmm ... Gina

[i50.tinypic.com image 639x438]
My own shot of Gina from "ActionFest 2012" - she is very friendly ... mixes right in with the crowd (she's her own security). She was filming a stuntman on fire about 5' in front of her.


Funny, I just finished watching that. I wasn't blown away.

EyeballKid: It must be awful to have hit the artistic peak of your career -- winning People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive honor -- at so young an age. For him, is there really anything left to accomplish?


The only reason why people know this guy exist is because he was named sexiest man alive, and the only reason why he was named sexiest man alive is that People magazine can`t have the dreamboat that is George Clooney winning every single farking year.

MMA Champion != Wrestler

As an added bonus she does most (all?) of her own stunts and all of her own fight scenes. Far better than the average Hollywood rapid cut crap.

Again, I disagree. And I like Gina Carano. I think she's gorgeous, great fighter, the works. But the fight scenes in Haywire were odd, kinda stilted. A lot of them looked like they didn't bother to get a good stunt double to fight against her, so she's having to pose and wait for the other guy to throw his punch. As an actress, I wish she'd started smaller; done some more bit parts, worked with more directors, gotten a better sense of what she's doing rather than being straightaway shoved into a leading role. She's nice, she's pretty, but she's not up to acting opposite Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas and Michael Douglas.

who cares. never heard of her as i don't watch big screen teevee's in bars with a cadre of parking lot Bruce Lee types...

when she bloats out like a mutant Tom Platz I'll check back for the funny factor but otherwise....

GI Joe
The Eagle

Yeah, a real Thespian.

And that's just the crap I KNOW he's terrible in. I highly doubt he's even decent in Magic Mike, Haywire, or The Vow in much the same way I ignore any woman's opinion on Twighlight movies

Using 'real people' is a thing that Steven Soderbergh (the director) likes to do ... like when he cast Sasha Grey (the porn star) as a high end hooker for The Girlfriend Experience. Yes this ends up with 'actors' that do not have the experience to put out deep, flawless performances. But, that said, he is pretty good at getting good performances out of them and I think Gina held her own just fine.

As for the fights ... well let's just say you and I see this very differently. This film had one of the best fight coordinators in the business: J.J. Perry. He builds a full, detailed set mock-up in the training gym. The actors and stuntmen use this to work out every minute detail of the choreography of a fight for weeks leading up to the shoot.

Combine that with using actors like Gina who can throw a punch, take a punch, accurately apply holds/use leverage/etc. and you end up with a fight scene with realistic action and long takes (none of this rapid cut crap that they use in most modern action movies to hide the fact that the actors are clueless about fighting).

Incoming CCS.
Last year I spent some time in training in Saint Francisville LA. The hotel I was in was me, a bunch of highway foremen, and.. the movie crew of GI JOE 2. I was warned about this by the hotel owner, who I knew, and he asked me to leave them be, so I did. The actors were apparently staying in Baton Rouge, and the crew looked like nice folk but tired as all hell.
Point of this. I was outside walking to the hotel office and Boring McBuffStud walks by me with only a towel around his waist, coming back from the pool. I eyed him a bit and carried on, he stopped and gave me a wtf look. The roadcrew foreman saw all of this, and when I came back informed me I had walked right by Tatum Channing's half naked ass with narry a care.
I had no idea who he was. Foreman loaned me the first GI JOE and Step Up. I still had no idea.

Fast forward to this year and some coworkers are fangirling over his boring ass, and I told them the above. They were flabbergasted. One told me I am an old soul.

Whatever. Give me Robert Downey JR and Tom Hiddleston anyday.

Do you know what "mediocre" means? It means AVERAGE. MIDDLE. That's what it was. And yeah, it was a letdown, because there was virtually no plot, they just filled in time with Jonah farking Hill "ad-libbing" (guy can't adlib to save his life, Christ almighty if those were the best takes the guy needs to try waaay harder), and why the hell did they call it "21 Jump Street" when it really had nothing at all in common with the TV show in respect to tone?

See, the difference between you and me is that I have my own baseline of "funny" and "good", and if 90% of, say, comedies, that come out don't meet that expectation, then I don't consider them good. Whereas you seem to take the pile of crap that Hollywood spews out and pick out the semi-polished turd and say "Yeah, that made laugh two times more than that other movie, it's good!".

Yes I clearly enjoy pile of crap movies. There's a reason why critics and the vast majority of people liked the movie. You sound like a pretentious film major. 21 Jump Street wasn't great cinema, but it was entertaining for the majority of the movie and made me laugh. You just take movies like this way too seriously. You probably don't like Mel Brooks movies or Animal House either.

That was great, but not as good as the HFS drug side effects vignette. The science class scene, band scene, with Rob Riggle chewing them out, and then the icing on the cake, the baton race. Straight up laughed my ass off.

I'm another who was VERY surprised how much I enjoyed 21 Jumpstreet. I avoid Johan Hill like the plague, but him and Tatum were hilarious together. I avoided the movie for a long time until a friend let me borrow it, and I watched it on a whim. Hype can kill a movie, but going in low certainly helped.

I loved Haywire too. Strong female, amazing fight scenes. The fact that they got so many amazing actors to support the movie. The self-referential stuff was good too, when they mention putting Gina's character into an unusual situation. It was commented on how this isn't what she's used to doing. It just worked for me.
