    Yeah, I don't know. I was pretty in love with the concept originally, but after seeing the first trailer, I was much less enthused. Especially coming from the guy behind Wanted, which wasn't anywhere near as good as it should have been.

    Having said that, though, it does have Mary Elizabeth Winstead in it...

    the book was very fact-u-esque in a way. I loved the course of history/civil war re-worked with vampires.

    I hope this isn't just "how many axes can he swing and fires get started in 2 hours"


    And now that I re-read that, perhaps I might not mind that so much either

    Continuum just premiered up here and it was really good. Stars Rachel Nichols. Wonder when a US channel will pick it up?

    REVEALED: The outrageous plot of the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending | Blastr

    New York magazine's Vulture got the Jupiter Ascending scoop from a source that they're convinced is on the level—even despite the outrageousness of the plot, which allegedly entails:

    A universe in which "human beings are just the Cro-Magnons, or even the Australopithecines, of what beings can ultimately go on to become in the galaxy. ... these higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons."
    The unlikely, reluctant heroine is a Russian immigrant (Mila Kunis) who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.

    These evolved beings fall into various different groups, all of which share some human DNA but who have over centuries been bred with animal DNA to heighten their best characteristics—e.g., soldiers getting their fearlessness, strength, and a pack mentality from wolves; workers getting their industriousness and reputation for diligence from bees.

    Pretty soon, a bounty hunter (Channing Tatum) of the evolved-being type is dispatched to dispose of Kunis' genetically blessed cleaning lady, but, as you'd expect with a Matrix re-dux, they fall in love. And for having fallen for his target, the bounty hunter gets targeted for extermination.
    I want some of whatever they are smoking.

    Why did John Carter tank? Baffled Willem Dafoe has his own theory | Blastr

    Out on Blu/DVD today...at least rent the damned thing and see what you missed out on.

    lot of people are still puzzling over why John Carter didn't fare better at the box office, particularly after we all saw the scale of the visual feast director Andrew Stanton prepared for us. Co-star Willem Dafoe is just as baffled as we are ... but he does have a theory.

    Dafoe had a lot of screen time as the green-skinned chieftain Tars Tarkas in the Disney adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs classic, and just like the rest of the cast he was expecting great things when the flick hit theaters. When John Carter crashed and burned instead, it left Dafoe more than a little baffled.

    "You don't like to publicly lament disappointments too much, but I'm still kind of scratching my head over it," Dafoe said "For me, I thought John Carter really captured something. It was very pure in its approach. It was classical. It wasn't hip and cool. It was really from the source, and I appreciate that."
    Hollywood analysts have given no shortage of reasons for why the flick was such a big loss, blaming everything from bad Disney marketing to a high budget to a painfully unclear title. As for Dafoe, he thinks it might just be a case of bad timing.

    "In my experience, sometimes a movie just hits at the wrong time, gets the wrong press, or gets the wrong representation, and it gets misunderstood," he said. "Sometimes it's hard for people to really decide, too. There's so much reporting about the business and that other stuff, that they really get distracted by some of those things, and then it influences some of the weaker-willed people to not have their own opinion."
    There's always the hope that, like many a sci-fi underdog before it, John Carter will find new life on home video as people give it a try from their own couches. But Dafoe laments the flick's poor theatrical performance even more these days because the chances of a sequel are most likely doomed.

    "It sure doesn't seem like [there will be a sequel], which is a shame," he said.. "This was the set-up for what could be a great series of movies. . . I was looking forward to doing a sequel, though, because I know something of where the story goes and the character of Tars Tarkas. He's big, and the relationship with John gets more intense."
