Report: We’ll have to wait for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” for next year, Paramount wants to add 3D for the film…

Well, look like we’ll have to wait even longer for the “G.I. Joe” sequel, “Retaliation”. Paramount is pushing the film back, 9 months of it’s original release date, June 29th. Instead, it’s coming out, March 29th, 2013. This is creating controversy on the internet today. It’s pissing people off. It’s pissing me off ’cause I’ve been looking forward to this movie. I absolutely LOVED, the first movie.

I’m a huge GI Joe fan, loved the action figures and cartoons when I was a kid. The movies are staying true to the characters and stories. This is how greedy Hollywood is. Thanks to James Cameron, Hollywood is now jerking off over 3D. I don’t like today’s 3D too much. The only good 3D movie of today, was “The Avengers”. So far, I haven’t liked any other 3D movie. These days Hollywood is giving you a choice to either see the film in regular 2D or 3D.

That’s the only reason they are doing this, competition. Money. They want to compete with other 3D movies. I pretty much blame it on, “The Avengers”. Paramount, thinks they can top Marvel.

Deadline, reports.

Film Review: “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”

Starring: Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway

Directed by Brad Bird:

Well today, I decided to hit the mall to see “MI: Ghost Protocol”. Here is my review…

Plot/synopsis: In the 4th installment of the Mission Impossible series, Ethan Hunt and his team are racing against time to track down a dangerous terrorist named Hendricks, who has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and is planning a strike on the United States. An attempt by the team to stop him at the Kremlin ends in a disaster, with an explosion causing severe destruction to the Kremlin and the IMF being implicated in the bombing, forcing the President to invoke Ghost Protocol, under which the IMF is disavowed, and will be offered no help or backup in any form. Undaunted, Ethan and his team chase Hendricks to Dubai, and from there to Mumbai, but several spectacular action sequences later, they might still be too late to stop a disaster.

After seeing this new movie, makes me want to re-watch the first three films. I thought “Ghost Protocol”, was a whole lot of fun. It is definitely the best one of the series, and it’s very rare that the later sequels get better than the earlier movies.

I thought the plot was pretty interesting, the story maybe a little predictable, but it kept you watching ’til the very end. Most importantly of all, I was most impressed with the action scenes and the direction style of, Brad Bird. Brad Bird is one talented and unique director. He’s pretty stylish. Brad filmed most of this movie with real stunts, and they filmed on real film locations. Yes, they actually filmed at the Kremlin and that sky tower building in Dubai where Tom did that crazy high flying stunt.

I thought the cast did a decent job on the acting, and Tom was enjoyable, like usual. Josh Holloway who played Sawyer from the show “Lost”, had a real small role, it was pretty much a cameo, but he did real good though. Josh looked different with short hair and clean shaven. You’ll see Josh in the beginning of the film.

The movie was an action packed ride like I expected. Not bad for a PG-13 action movie. I thought Paula Patton who played the film’s female star, was a pretty hot woman. The action scenes were so fun, that it made you want to cheer for Tom, and the scenes did look pretty realistic with him doing his own stunts.

I thought the movie was awesome. Liked it a lot. It just gave me even more respect for Tom. I think there is going to be a 5th “MI”, movie ’cause the ending just left open for another one, of course. I’m all for another “MI”, movie. Definitely check this one out.

Score for “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” = **** (4 stars as in “excellent”)

Report: Benicio Del Toro, won’t do Trek…guess he wanted to be payed more and they couldn’t afford it…

JJ Abrams squashed the news that Benicio Del Toro could be starring as the main villain for “Star Trek” sequel. Benicio dropped over money issues.

Look like Del Toro wanted an extremely high paycheck and the film crew couldn’t afford him. They also denied that he was going to be playing Khan.

Report: Original Robocop actor, Peter Weller, joins the cast of “Star Trek” sequel…

The casting for JJ Abrams, “Star Trek” sequel just got even more interesting! First Benicio Del Torro and actress, Alice Eve are both in talks of starring. Here’s the next surprising casting. I’m sure you’ve all seen the Paul Verhoeven epic sci-fi action flick, “Robocop”, starring Peter Weller. Well Peter just got casted for an un-named role in JJ’s “Star Trek” sequel. They don’t even say whether he’s playing a villain or a hero.

More on the story, here.

Nice! I loved the first, Robocop, movie. Just so you know, Peter has never retired from acting, he’s still working after all this time. He’s just been doing other movies and TV shows over the years. I remember seeing Peter in a role for “Dexter – Season 5”, he was a character named, Stan Liddy.

As for what character that Peter could be playing in “Star Trek”, my guess is that it could be, John Frederick Paxton, in which he played for in two episodes of the TV show, “Star Trek: Enterprise”.

Report: JJ Abrams “Star Trek” sequel confirmed for May 17th, 2013 release date…

Today, on the Star Trek website, just confirmed the release date for JJ Abrams, ‘Star Trek” sequel. The film will be hitting theaters on May 17th, 2013.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for now but JJ Abrams is set to return to direct and actor, Benicio Del Toro, is in talks to play the films leading villain.

We don’t know who Benicio will be playing yet, but notice that Benicio’s skin is a little dark, it look like he maybe playing a Klingon character. He also might be playing a young, Khan.

I thought the first Star Trek movie was real good and hopefully the next film will be just as good. I hope William Shatner will get a cameo this time, also.

Report: Steven Spielberg agreed with the public that “Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” had problems but blames Lucas…

“Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, the fourth installment to the Indy series has gotten negative feedback ever since it came out, and Steven Spielberg finally responds to the negative critics. He agreed with the public that Indy IV sucked, but he puts the blame on George Lucas for the bad movie.

Another thing that people’s been complaining about is the controversial Fridge scene in which Indy hides in to protect himself from an atomic bomb. Steven says he doesn’t blame Lucas for that scene, he blames himself.

Read the full story, here.

I’m one of the very few that actually loved Indy IV, I just didn’t like Shia Labeouf starring in it. I think it was pretty much him that ruined the movie. Without Shia, the movie would have been fine.

When they do Indy V, hopefully they get rid of Shia, and I’m hoping they make Indy V a more serious movie next time around, and not a popcorn flick. I think the next Indy movie should be more like, “Raiders”. Will they do the sci-fi thing again with Indy V? I don’t think they should do it again.

I think it would be kind of cool if they do a script on the Ark of Covenant, after all, the Ark did make a brief cameo in Indy IV. They better make Indy V soon, because Harrison is getting older.

Cool Video: Behind the scenes video proves Tom Cruise building stunt is real…

A behind the scenes video of “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” surfaces the web, showing the scene where Tom Cruise is doing the action scene on a tall building in, Dubai.

It proves the scene was done for real. No green screens, no special effects and no stunt doubles. That’s all Tom. He looks very confident doing that too.

No matter what you think of Tom, love him or hate him, what he did here is pretty ballsy. It gave me a little more respect for him after this. I can’t wait to see the movie, I’m definitely seeing it in theater.

See the video here, at AICN.
