Blade Runner 2 To Star Harrison Ford?


There is a new Blade Runner film in the works and has been for at least the last few months, but recent news has indicated that Harrison Ford is in talks with the film’s producers, changing the film from a potential crappy reboot of the 1982 hit, to possibly a direct sequel (which would be much more interesting)!

These talks are apparently in very early stages, but according to Twitch film blog producer Andrew Kosove has absolutely no intention on casting Harrison Ford for a sequel, saying ” In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you’re asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no”.

I personally am hoping Harrison will be cast in the new film, it would be much more interesting than watching (yet another) Hollywood remake. A sequel this long after the original fuels all sorts of great story ideas for the new movie. Here’s hoping for greater minds to prevail and make something worth watching!

Star Wars Complete Saga On Blu-Ray (Finally!)


swcs_boxartIf you’ve been waiting forever for the complete Star Wars series of films to release as a single box-set you’re not alone. It has been years and years in the making and in that time all we’ve received that’s even close to a complete box-set has been two separate trilogy boxes. While the content of each box was pretty good with lots of extra bonus content, fans of the films have always wanted the complete set in one single box. It’s a bit more collectable that way too.

So far there has been no news about a complete box set coming to DVD so if you’ve not yet moved up into the world of Blu-Ray this might be your catalyst to upgrade as it will only be available on Blu-Ray. George Lucas has wanted to save the best for last it seems. He shot the last trilogy (episodes 1-3) digitally, so maybe wants his flagship box set to be seen with the best possible quality that high definition (HD) can bring?

Whatever the reason, I’ll be in line to pick up a copy when it releases in Australia September 14th, 2011. You can pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi or online @ JB Hi-Fionline.com.au.

Megan Fox: What It Must Be Like To Be That Bike!

Quite possibly one of the best things to come from the 2nd offering of Transformers is this scene with Megan Fox on a bike. I think she’s trying to get off on it (excuse the pun) or cleaning it or something…who knows, who really cares I guess.

My previous post (Transformers 2 Reviews – Roger Ebert and Most Other Critics Hate it!) I discussed the seeming lack of interest in this film after reading Roger Ebert’s scathing review of the film. I really hope the film is better than what has been reviewed of it so far. Most will probably be happy if they just see Megan doing stuff like this on film for 2hrs I suppose but I was such a fan of the first film (excluding the 80’s animated film – I’m talking the 2007 film) I have high hopes for the 2nd.

Transformers 2 Reviews – Roger Ebert and Most Other Critics Hate it!


The highly anticipated sequel of 2007’s Transformers directed by Michael Bay released to cinemas today (in Australia at least, yesterday in Britain) to not so critical review.

Some will say “don’t take everything critics say to heart” which for the most part is true. Transformers: Revenge of the fallen is supposed to be an “Entertaining” film for audiences to watch with high amounts of action which i’m sure this film will deliver in spades. As far as drama and the quality of dialog…I’ll just have to wait to see the film myself to comment.

Ebert’s review of the film seems to be quite brash and over the top to begin with, really pouring on the negativity, but maybe he has a point. Maybe the film is just a bunch of toys rolling around in a confused mesh for 2 hours?

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is a horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments. One of these involves a dog-like robot humping the leg of the heroine. Such are the meager joys. If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination. – Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun Times

Needless to say, not the best start to a sure-fire box office hit. Trailers are one thing, but actually seeing the film might actually be a different story. I’m yet to see it myself, but I had high hopes for this film as I absolutely loved the first one (2007).
