Kinda bummed to see Damon return. Renner was passed the torch and did a wonderful job. Let him have the franchise, and leave Damon to do bad leftist propaganda films.

+1s all up in here for you, Subby.

Holy shiat. That was a good headline. +1 Subs.

Still Bourne. Love it.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Kinda bummed to see Damon return. Renner was passed the torch and did a wonderful job. Let him have the franchise, and leave Damon to do bad leftist propaganda films.


Sorry, what are you referring to in terms of bad leftist propoganda films? I looked at the films listed recently for him and I doubt The Adjustment Bureau is leftist, because other than being about magic people with hats, it's about self-determination.

Also, "We Bought a Zoo"?

I loved the first and enjoyed the next 2. I did not see Legacy and don't know if I will.

I read the first 2 books. What I enjoyed about those was how human Bourne was. I missed this part of him in the movies and wonder what they are going to do, now.

calbert: Meh

Matt Damon vows to do his own Bourne movie. Look for Still Bourne some time in 2013 09 Jan 2011


Yeah, bad subby - you know you MUST look through every headline from the past five years before submitting anything to this site. Game over man, game over.

So Damon is Bourne again?

That makes Renner a Bourne loser.
 
2013-02-21 09:03:13 PM  
I would love to see some Renner/Damon slash fic in lieu of another Bourne movie.

*ahem*

That said, I thought all the Bourne movies were good. The Renner version was surprisingly watchable and the storyline didn't retcon the other Bourne movies. I hope there are more, with either actor.

I couldn't really tell the first three apart. All three of them were all "Who am I? Where am I? I'm in your office looking at you but also who am I?" for six hours. Then the last one was like James Bond meets Trainspotting. "I guess I'm a spy but where are my drugs? And who am I?".

I liked Hawkeye Legacy.
I also liked Black Widow Bought A Zoo.
I don't where Damon fits into all this.

Wayhay, subby. Nicely done.

Will Michael J. Fox still be Director of Cinematography?
 
2013-02-22 03:37:31 AM  
I don't understand how Jeremy Renner gets so many high profile roles lately. Mind you, he's certainly not a bad actor, far from it, but he's pretty much bland and charisma-less.

I feel sorry for you.

Renner was good in Legacy, and he was definitely good in The Town. Just let him take over the Bourne franchise.

Look at it this way: It could be worse.

It could be Sam Worthington.

At least Jeremy can act.
But you are right. Sam Worthington is the Tintin of actors : a blank canvas onto which anybody can project himself.

Shia Laboeuf would ALMOST be in the same category, were it not that he passed the "bland" line to go into "anti-charismatic" territory.

I have a theory that in Hollywood there are certain look-and-personality archetypes that filmmakers always need and if an actor fits one of those archetypes to a T, they get all the roles. And two things happen that causes them to stop getting the roles: 1) They grow old and no longer fit the archetype or 2) The film industry finds someone better (and usually younger).

Look at Lindsay Lohan as an example -- the buxom teenage savvy redhead. There are always demands for that archetype and Lohan should have parlayed it into a huge career but when she became a trainwreck and unreliable, the industry quickly found a replacement in Emma Stone. And now Stone is basically getting all the roles that probably would have gone to Lohan.

Same with Jeremy Renner.... you don't see Sam Worthington around much anymore for that reason (I don't mean that Worthington trainwrecked like Lohan... I simply mean that Renner is more preferable for that particular archetype).

How about a prequel named Bourne Ready?

You know how I know you don't know what "buxom" means?

Maybe the plot should involve them infiltrating a biker gang. Look for 'Bourne To Be Wild' this Christmas!

So if he comes back, is he Bourne Free?  As free as the wind blows...

Was the latest Bourne movie even worth watching ?

I must say, I love these mindless spy action movies.  When I get to pick the movies on movie night, any time I can pick a Bourne movie or something like Taken and get the wife to agree, I consider it a huge victory.

Some fairly intense action scenes, over all believable acting, main protagonist is a clever one, just watch it immediately after watching the 3rd.  The 4th is supposed to be happening in parallel to the events of the 3rd and is pretty much relying on the 3rd to exist in the first place.  But again, some pretty good and intense actions scenes.  (Spoiler reference to others:  That lab scene was pretty darn good)

The term is 'expressive eyes'.  Well, I don't know if that's the term, but that's the term I use, so for the sake of this response - that's the term.  He's one of those actors who doesn't require exaggerated facial movements to convey their feeling.  While many fail (Kristen Stewart for example), I personally find him to be expressive.

Jeremy Renner's Bourne movie should have been called "Origin of Archer"

/lovingly ripped from a post seen here when his movie came out

Infobahn: So if he comes back, is he Bourne Free?  As free as the wind blows...


If that's the name of the next one, somehow Dexter needs to be worked into the story.  Not that much of a stretch, really.  Both of them kill a lot of people.

MadSkillz: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: leave Damon to do bad leftist propaganda films.

He's referring to 'Promised Land'. Because it's leftist to express concern over the air and water contamination and radiation exposure that results from fracking. it's rightist to ignore the danger to public welfare because the practice of fracking helps maximize the profits of the gas companies.
 
2013-02-22 09:53:48 AM  
No. They ruined a great franchise with that steaming turd last year. How are they going to back pedal from that bizarre and stupid premise they went out of their way to establish in Legacy?

Yes, a bomb of a film (7.5 mil domestic and zero chance for more internationally) funded by Arab oil money is going to change the world.

"Still Bourne"? Yea, that movie would pretty much be dead on arrival.

its box office does not negate the validity of its message. The air and water contamination and radiation exposure still exists whether people saw the movie or not. it's the job of the right-wing media to make sure the public does not learn the truth about fracking.

It's going to be a homoerotic thriller named "Bourne This Way"
 
2013-02-22 11:56:53 AM  
I enjoyed Legacy, but it felt that it was written more someone who was a fan of the Bourne Trilogy, but didn't have extensive screenwriting experience.  It all felt a bit rushed, and I felt that the plot was just silly, even for a Bourne movie.  Still, it had an insanely good cast, and the acting and action was all fine - The chase scene was fantastic.

To be honest... it felt like it just abruptly ended to me.  Didn't really feel like it reached a satisfying conclusion.
