The only podcast I listen to (We Hate Movies) is doing an 'emergency' screening and release for this. I have every intention of listening to that and zero intention of watching this.

They're either gonna have a field day with this one or get suicidally depressed. Maybe both. Either way, their podcast is guaranteed to be better than the movie.

Try Now Playing Podcast. Next Tuesday is their review of it.

Now Playing is fantastic. Been listening to them for 8 years. Always 3 hosts on each series. They've reviewed tons of them. They review every film in a series and give a Recommend or Not Recommend. They even reviewed Howard the Duck before starting the MCU series. Also TV Hulk and Dr. Strange films.

Yep! Not gonna lie, I started up their Ultraviolet episode in anticipation. IIRC, it's Eric's most hated movie they've ever done and with it also being a vampire movie, I'm wondering which will be ultimately inferior. He can sway based on recent terribleness vs trying to remember.

They're a great pick too. They might be the best of the serious movie review podcasts, and I always enjoy hearing their takes even if I don't always agree with them.

Honestly I'll give it a shot. I hadn't listened to a single podcast in my life until a couple years ago and a Farker talked about WHM tearing apart a Gerard Butler movie (I think Law Abiding Citizen). I said "Ya know what, I need something to listen to while working, so I'll see what these 'podcasts' are all about" and they had me hooked. If you can make me laugh, then you got me.

Another Farker suggesting a podcast holds more credibility to me than a lot of people I actually know. At least the humor will be par.

I have a soft spot for Ultraviolet because it's such a hilariously overstylized, pretentious mess. I think it makes a great so-bad-it's-good double feature with Jupiter Ascending.

Admittedly, I'm very alone in that opinion. And also on the couch whenever I put either of those two movies on. Even the dog finds better things to do.

Jared Leto is a pretty good singer and I like his band's music.  His acting has sucked of late.

I'd put this more on hiring sub-par writers/directors. If you look at the pedigree of the creative team it isn't that good. The reviews mostly seem to say that Leto's good, even if the movie sucks

Whenever I try to judge guilty pleasure movies, I think of Hitman 2007. It's only twice as good as Ultraviolet 'tomato'-wise (8%v16%). I will readily admit is an objectively bad movie. Meh plot, terrible pacing, cut to ribbons and edited like shiat. Timothy Olyphant has talked about how much he hates it. But it's a guilty, guilty pleasure of mine. I don't blame anyone who can admit it's bad from a 'regular' viewpoint, but they still like it. I feel if I told Olyphant it's one of my favorite movies featuring him, he'd punch me in the face.

And I probably wouldn't blame him.

Nah, you're not remotely alone.

"Trash, but fun trash" is basically the consensus on all of the Ultraviolet movies.  Admittedly they're probably significantly more puzzling if you're just seeking them out with no context now, but the context here is that the first UV movie came out in 2006 and the first Twilight in 2008, making them immediate contemporaries running parallel "vampires versus werewolves" stories with very similar levels of production and comparable attempts to glam up the vampires.

Ultraviolet's decision to accomplish that glitziness by hamming everything the fark up and throwing every willfully-stupid x-treem '90s cliche into the mix and whipping that mix as hard as possible with an entire cast too busy chewing the goddamned scenery to pay attention to pussy shiat like 'plot' or 'conversations that make any goddamned sense' was a welcome relief and cultural counterpoint to what the supernatural romance genre was trying to transform our favorite silly emo blooddrinkers into.  It was actually legitimately ironic, where they did an ironic thing and played it straight within the film like you're supposed to-- it was a couple years to early for 'ironic' to mean 'doing a thing while also being an insincere, smarmy asshole' and someone on set apparently had an actual film degree, I assume one of the catering guys or a key grip or something.

Like, "you can tell this werewolf is the special werewolf because he's farking fluorescent blue.  Why glowing neon farking blue?  Because fark you, that's why, now watch him run thorough this machine gun fire to rip a dude in half, fark yeah, bro" was very clearly not meant to be taken seriously by the audience, no matter how seriously it's treated diegetically.  It was essentially using pretentiousness intentionally as a tone-setting tool instead of being genuinely up its own ass (or if you wanna be less generous, sounding pretentious because it was ripping off The Matrix rather than that it thought it had something to say), and while that's not exactly high art territory it's a lot more forgivable than how a lot of attempts to ironically channel pulp/trash cinema tropes do it.

I mean... on some level you have to respect the sheer commitment to the joke it takes to fully, sincerely commit to spending dump-trucks of money and loads of acting time and effort on the pitch "my high school World of Darkness campaign from my Hot Topic phase, but also The Matrix, and also I lost some notes so we're using the mythic backstory from my high-fantasy D&D campaign instead for the setting".

I always thought there was a difference between guilty pleasure movies and so-bad-it's-good movies. Like with guilty pleasure movies, you actually enjoy them but you're embarrassed to admit it, while there's no real shame in pointing out movies you enjoy mocking.

It's like The Room. People still love talking about how bad it is and how much fun it is to laugh at. But if you privately dig Wiseau's acting and get really invested in the drama between him and Lisa, who he loves so much, you'd take that secret to your grave.

yeah they have free shows every tuesday. Tons of great series like MCU, DCU, Dirty Harry, Tremors, Philip K. Dick, Stephen King (including 9 or 10 Children of the Corn films), movies based on video games, Paranormal Activity, etc. Hundreds of films to choose from.

They also do donation drives and do some series through that. Right now in the donation series they are finishing up Harry Potter, then Fantastic Beasts, then they have to do Twilight. I have gone highest level donation since i started listening. And do Patron donation for bonus reviews. A few months ago they did Cats. It was glorious.

But yeah tons of free shows and no advertisers.

You're thinking of the Underworld series, which even at their worst were at a professional level of quality miles above Ultraviolet. UV is a hysterical disaster of a film that can't even commit to having actual vampires, just characters with increased strength, light sensitivity, and fang-like teeth who are popularly called vampires. There's no reason to bring up vampires at all, except the screenwriter thought it would sound cooler.

She's living in the super futuristic super future, so in the beginning scenes, she shows off some super future grooming technique that makes her hair repeatedly change colors as you watch. Somebody had just figured out After Effects and wanted to show off their mad skills even if it served no purpose for the movie.

Or maybe that was the sole purpose for the movie. Whatever the reason, it's so pointless and cheap looking it's hilarious.

Jared Leto ruins just about everything he his in because he feels the need to "reinterpret" whichever character he plays with his own "vision". Looking at his IMDB profile, he was good as a contributing actor in: My So-called Life; Mr. Nobody; and Dallas Buyer's Club.

3 out 60 acting credits. Why do they keep hiring this asshat? In addition he is one of the more offensive "method" actor types.

My personal impression of Leto isn't that he's a bad actor, just an incredibly bland and uninteresting one who can't carry a major role. And that includes major supporting roles, not just leads. Like if you were casting The Batman, you definitely don't want him as Bruce, you wouldn't want him as the Riddler or Penguin, and you wouldn't pick him for Falcone. But the boring district attorney who gets his head blown off? He'd be fine for that, because he's not supposed to own the scene. It's just a functional part that doesn't require great screen presence or an outsized personality.

Leto's biggest problem is that he missed his true calling. He would have been perfect as the hapless boyfriend that Meg Ryan always ended up dumping in favor of Tom Hanks or Billy Crystal or anyone else. The clod who's good-looking enough that you can see why they initially got together, but dull enough that you can't wait for her to kick him to the curb.

The clod who's good-looking enough that you can see why they initially got together, but dull enough that you can't wait for her to kick him to the curb.


I thought he did a good job in Requiem for a Dream *shrug*

Never saw it, but I wouldn't doubt that he could be put to good use in the right project by a skilled director. I just think there's a very limited number of right projects for him, and Morbius never sounded like one of them.

baron von doodle: Oh. I also liked Leto in Fight Club. Well, the part where he got his face wrecked.


Sounds like some farkers wouldn't be happy until Stanley Kubrick directed him in that scene.

AGAIN!

Just got home from the first screening. Without too many spoilers, there's next to nothing that would make the casual movie watcher think it was anything other than a somewhat generic vampire movie. Definitely not a "comic book movie".

Save your money.

scottydoesntknow: The only podcast I listen to (We Hate Movies) is doing an 'emergency' screening and release for this. I have every intention of listening to that and zero intention of watching this.


Well now I'm finally excited that the movie exists.

EdgeRunner: baron von doodle: EdgeRunner: Dr Dreidel: 17%?

[pbs.twimg.com image 480x360]

Yeah, going off what they've shown in the trailers, 17% does seem a little high.

Jared Leto ruins just about everything he his in because he feels the need to "reinterpret" whichever character he plays with his own "vision". Looking at his IMDB profile, he was good as a contributing actor in: My So-called Life; Mr. Nobody; and Dallas Buyer's Club.

3 out 60 acting credits. Why do they keep hiring this asshat? In addition he is one of the more offensive "method" actor types.

My personal impression of Leto isn't that he's a bad actor, just an incredibly bland and uninteresting one who can't carry a major role. And that includes major supporting roles, not just leads. Like if you were casting The Batman, you definitely don't want him as Bruce, you wouldn't want him as the Riddler or Penguin, and you wouldn't pick him for Falcone. But the boring district attorney who gets his head blown off? He'd be fine for that, because he's not supposed to own the scene. It's just a functional part that doesn't require great screen presence or an outsized personality.

Leto's biggest problem is that he missed his true calling. He would have been perfect as the hapless boyfriend that Meg Ryan always ended up dumping in favor of Tom Hanks or Billy Crystal or anyone else. The clod who's good-looking enough that you can see why they initially got together, but dull enough that you can't wait for her to kick him to the curb.


Good point.

He played a strung out heroin addict (which has common traits to lots of his characters). That movie was amazing due almost entirely to the director. That and an outstanding performance by a silicone object.

I meant the Fight Club comment as hyperbole/ a joke.

So..... Would that be like a version of The Human Centipede but in a 3D repeating loop?

SpaceyCat: Jared Leto is a pretty good singer and I like his band's music.  His acting has sucked of late.

Sony Pictures eventually messes up with their Marvel licensed films, it was just a matter of time...again

It's not even a Marvel movie. It's a Sony movie.

I'm confused on how this was greenlit in the first place. I mean unless you go full horror movie its never going to work as a solo character. Morbius isn't a hero or even a villain he's a tragedy about the dangers of science. I think Leto is a good choice to play Morbius in a Spiderman film thats relying on Spiderman to cure the Doctor before he murders all of New York.
