Look, I think you already know this, but there is this awful, AWFUL, AWFUL!!! movie with Will Smith in it called Hancock. I didn't pay attention to the trailer on Access Holywood, but it looks like it's about a bum named Hancock who has super-powers. I don't know what your opinion is, but so far, it looks horrible. It's not coming for a little while, so you have some time to prepare. I'm no sage, but I predict a grim future for movies. A new wave of B-Movies may be upon us. State your opinion here. I satated mine.

S.O.S *PLEASE CANCEL HANCOCK* S.O.S.

P.S. The thing that would KILL me would be a videogame based off Hancock. We are in an age where Power-Hungry movie companies vie to make as much money as possible with their movies. One way they do this is videogames. The worst thing is a crappy movie made into a crappy game. But, In my opinion, the game Looney Toons: Back in Action was not that bad.

Bollocks, I want to see it. Looks rather funny and kind of spoof-ish on superheroes.

I don't think this is necessarily a great example, but yes, I think movies are taking a serious turn for the worse.

You said it, man!

I was in EB Games yesterday and opn the video monitor thedy were talikng about Kung Fu Panda and how there will be a game for KFP. (Suprise, Suprise.) Some townie was in there and he said, "OK, the movie's probably gonna be crap and the game is GONNA be crap." I responded by saing, "You said it man!" A crappy movie like Hancock or Kung Fu Panda will most likely make a video game out of it and The videogame is certainly gonna be crap. Put simply:
Crappy Movie + Game = Crappy game = Phail.

Yeah, I guess so. I MIGHT, MIGHT give this movie a chance but I dunno. For now, I am expecting Plan 9 From Outer Space with this one.

No, I'm getting the impression he thinks it's so bad, he'll watch it to see just how "bad" it really is.

Screw you, the trailer made me laugh. It looks funny. I'm going to go watch it.
Really whats your problem with the movie? Is a bum having superpowers against your religion or something?
You really can't call it awful either when all you've seen is the trailer.

hey Lizzie-DS long time no see. anyways ways people having opinions on a movie before they have even seen said movie is pretty lame. if you want to make assumptions then that is fine but it is pretty ignorant. a 2 minute low res. movie trailer is not the whole movie people. however if it is more to do with not liking a particular actors movies then do not see any films by them or bother to comment on them as your opinion will be biased/scewed anyways. for what its worth i like most of what Will Smith does film-wise and i will be going to watch this movie in the cinema. just like i did with i am legend, which i thought was great inspite of most of the film just concentrating on Will Smiths character and his survival as a lone human in a world full of virus mutated non-humans. it was original and well made and it was a good story. if anyone is offended by this post and what i have said i do apologise but i am only giving my opinions on a topic and was not posting to attack or otherwise incite someone. it just annoys me when people say things that are not based on actual events or undeniable truth.

OK! Look, I didn't pay attention to the trailer, but a bum with superpowers? OK, come on. Apparently, someone overlooked this in Concept Approval (Does that even exist?) But for now, I am going to think it's crap. Sure looks like it.

Actually, this one looks like its going to be pretty funny. I think his general point was that the movie industry as a whole is going downhill, but I dunno. This seems like a movie I'll see with my friends.

He could be a bum, but then again, it looks like he has a house to live in. Maybe he just doesn't care? It's a different take on a superhero, or at least one that thumbs his nose at the status-quo for what people think of a traditional "super hero". Open up your mind to a new concept every once in a while and stop being such a bloody stick in the mud.

The movie does look funny and I venture to guess it'll do quite well on the opening week at the box office. Consider my words marked.

im with you on this Major Nuker. films that are original or at least try something new are to be welcomed in a world full of films with gun wielding action heros and concurrent identical looking romantic comedies. im sure the movie will be fun and i really want to catch it in the cinema. a good excuse to grab a bunch of friends and go see this at your local multiplex. let the good times roll.

completely off topic
@ Nidmeister, yah im a big Warhammer 40K fan. and i collect a Dark Angel/Fallen Dark Angel army. i have been in the hobby since i was 9 and back then we used to play Warhammer Fantasy Battle 1st edition. im 30 now so you do the maths lol. it has been a long time and a great deal of fun.

i recently got Dark Heresy which is the new Warhammer 40,000 Role Play system. i was lucky i got 2 copies of the game rules and a few extras such as the Game Masters Kit and the Character Record Journal. best buy ever as the game was sold out on pre-order.
its been 20 years since Rogue Trader and this is the spiritual successor to it though its an RPG and not a table top wargame.

everything in Warhammer 40K owes its origins to that amazing rules system. and finally your suspicions about my avatar must be put to rest. it is indeed Cypher. the lost and the thrice damned and the quote is one i made up.

" i am an angel with broken wings, i fell so far but i did not die."

its a reference to something personal and also about Cypher as a former Dark Angel who now roams the galaxy of 40K sowing distrust as well as creating chaos and confusion wherever he goes. though in his wake and due to the conflicts he is involved in, the Imperium of man becomes stronger. it is also rumoured he carries the sword of Lion El'Jonson himself. the one that was broken in two, at the fall of Caliban when Luther and fully half the Chapter betrayed the Lion and the remaining Dark Angels Legion.

even though to the Dark Angels, the Fallen are considered enemies of the Chapter and the Imperium. i still think that Cypher and those Fallen that rally to his cause are fighting for the Emperor and seek his forgiveness. after all those who fall from grace often strive the hardest.

anyways good to know you.

Aye aye at that. Nice to see a movie try something DIFFERENT rather then stick with the overused, glorified, 'all around GREATEST GUY IN THE WORLD' view on super heroes.

I mean if you don't like the movie, then fine. But state reasons for WHY you don't and don't try to campaign to get it boycotted/canceled. That just makes you look like a senseless bigot.

I bet the ENTIRE movie will be cheesy.

But not as cheesy as those CnC FMVs.

But, you are kind of right in saying that this movie is branching out from SUPERDUDE style movies making the guy a bum, Lizzie-DS.
