WILL THIS BE the FILM THAT FINALLY "WINS" ANGELINA JOLIE HER LONG-OVERDUE RAZZIE® (AFTER 8 PREVIOUSLY NOMINATED "ACHIEVEMENTS")??

AND, WHILE WE'RE ASKING QUESTIONS, JUST WHAT IS JAMES McAVOY (BAFTA and GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE for ATONEMENT) DOING in WHAT LOOKS LIKE a BIG-SCREEN RIP-OFF of NBC's 2007 SERIES CHUCK??

BASED on a GRAPHIC NOVEL and HELMED by an UNKOWN RUSSIAN DIRECTOR WHOSE NAME WE'D JUST AS SOON NOT ATTEMPT to TYPE (IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS MADE UP by ONE of the WRITERS from TV's BULLWINKLE) WANTED LOOKS LIKE "BIG TROUBLE" for ALL INVOLVED...

GO AHEAD, GET "GRAPHIC" with YOUR PUT-DOWNS (and/or PRAISE)...  


McAVOY: "Sorry, Miss Kidman...I didn't realize you 

were doing a remake of NORBIT..."

I like the scene when the bullet goes around ANGELINA JOLIE's head, and into the target...

Sorry, but this looks like what I call a "Nine-Year-Old Boy" movie: A film whose plot, characters and short attention span could all be attributed to (and appeal only to) a Nine-Year-Old Boy...

Actually, I am surprised this was chosen over the other movie opening June 27: If "Wanted" is a "Nine-Year-Old Boy" movie, then Pixar's "Wall-E" looks like "E.T." -- as remade by a Ten-Year-Old Girl!!

I know everybody loves Pixar movies, but "Wall-E" looks nauseatingly "romantic," and "cute" enough to make me wanna puke!

Nobody LUVS movies more than ME!

I'm with moviewizguy, how dare you treat Wall-E with such disrespect.

I love Pixar's movies, and I plan to see it opening weekend.

I flipped through the graphic novel, and then saw the ads for the movie. Much like a Uwe Boll movie, other than using the names of the characters from the source material, I don't see how this movie has anything to do with the book.

Okay, when has it been confirmed that it is on lock to be a bad movie? Admittedly, it looks like nothing to crow about, but one movie you should really bitch about is Get Smart. Steve Carrell's little schtick as the glib Michael Scott-type character is getting a little tiring. He did a superb job in Horton Hears a Who, and who could forget The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but the suck meter is gonna hit. And here's a review for the film from Variety.

Same goes for Anne Hathaway, who I could care less about, but see her everywhere.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

The trailers for this film make it look like a Matrix or James Bond ripoff, with its bullet time and stuff. However, it doesn't seem like razzible stuff.

Wait, the director,  Timur Bekmambetov, directed the Russian blockbusters Night Watch and Day Watch. From what I heard, those were pretty decent vampire movies.

On the other hand, it seems like every time foreign directors do big Hollywood films, the films end up sucking...

Didn't he want to try Afternoon Watch and make it a trilogy, as seems to be the illogical norm these days?  It would have been more logical than coming on board here.  Paul Verhoeven seems to have inadvertantly filled many foreign directors with visions of easy street.  Too bad too many of them find out they have no real power and are mere puppets in the hands of the money men (which granted is probably better than trying to make a Putinized production back home these days, but you get my point).

Putting a banana curve on a speeding bullet?

Okaaaaaaaay.

This looks incredibly dumb. Mr. and Mrs. Smith was bad enough, Angelina needs some fresh material.

As for Wall-E, I look forward to anything Pixar puts out. If the story is entertaining, I'm in!

OMG, critics are actually praising this movie. It currently has a 85% rating at rotten tomatoes, based on 27 reviews, much, much higher than I would have expected (the trailer made it looked like this movie was going to be along the line of a crappy and loud Michael Bay movie) . Looks like the Russian guy can direct Hollywood movies too!
