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.

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

Still Bourne. Love it.

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"?
 
2013-02-21 08:22:54 PM  
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.

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 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.

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

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).

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.

Sorry, what are you referring to in terms of bad leftist propoganda 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?

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.

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.
 
2013-02-22 01:13:27 PM  
I liked the latest Bourne movie...but I'd also love to see these 2 team up (and it's pretty clear that they have the same enemies in the CIA).  It would be 2 hours of ass-kicking fun.
 
2013-02-22 01:14:30 PM  
When I saw the previews to Renner's Bourne I was a little peeved.  It was just a cash-cow continuance not based on anything Ludlum did.  I pretty much knew I wouldnt watch it.  But I got a free $10 Amazon Instant video card from a purchase I made.  I decided to use it on Bourne Legacy.  Boy, was I right.  It was a laughable sci-fi depiction of secret agencies and programs.  It tried to capitalize on the cliches Bourne was already known for (international travel, a car chase (this time motorbikes) and efficient combat) and failed at all of them.  Plus the story was silly packed with far too many coincidences to further the plot.  I dont mind someone taking a property and going further with it but this was a Spy-thriller property not a sci-fi super-soldier property.  Damon should pass the torch and honestly Renner is a great choice, but the way his character was defined was just awful.  Not his fault really but you can only do so much with a terrible script, story, and editing i guess.  At least I got to see it for free.

Not to mention that now the energy companies now use a different fracking mix that is totally not a problem, unlike the old one it replaced that also wasn't a problem.
 
2013-02-22 01:20:45 PM  
The only issue I had with Legacy is that it undid all of what Bourne did in Ultimatum. Ultimatum felt like it completed the Trilogy and the "Good" CIA guys won over the corrupted CIA guys. Then Legacy came along and showed that the corrupted CIA agents were actually winning in the court case against them and making Lamdy look bad.

As a member of F.A.G it is his duty to make bad leftist propaganda films.

Nadie_AZ: 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.


Actually, the point of Legacy is that Renner's character is more human.  The program he was in was to replace Treadstone, which produced people that were too cold and emotionless.

All in all a decent movie.  Watched that and Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol on a long flight recently.  Renner was good in both.  While he's already a little old to sustain the action film stuff for long, he's decent enough.  Hollywood seems to be over the more bulked out Karl Urban, The Rock, Sam Worthington, and Vin Diesel phase it went through and Renner is more of the Tom Cruise/Bruce Willis variety, so he'll get the roles for a while until it comes back around again.
