Stupid

Well, here’s one for the half-off pile. Deadline Westwood reports that Lionsgate Summit is hellbent on giving us yet another narrative feature film based on a self-help book. Joining the ranks of the decidedly “just okay” features He’s Just Not That Into You and What To Expect When You’re Expecting will soon be Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. If this film is not about two aliens falling in love, I’ll be (more) disappointed (than I already am). We’ve known about the possibility of this project since 2010, but that lessens no blows. Based on John Gray‘s book of the same title, the adaptation of the non-fiction guide to relationships will be helmed by commercial director (of course) Bryan Buckley, making this project his feature debut. The script has been adapted by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, and there is no word on exactly what sort of shape, aim, or tone it will take. Also, no reason for this project to even exist has been cited. And it’s been touted as a vehicle for Reese Witherspoon, who appears to have forgotten that she once won an Oscar.

AMC’s The Walking Dead and I have a strange relationship in that I watch it but don’t particularly care for it. I can’t really tell you why I tune in every week, but it has something to do with my great love for the comic books and a desire to see horror on television, mostly regardless of quality. The books by Robert Kirkman have always had a bit of melodrama about them, but the show has often taken that to obvious, soap opera levels. “The Walking Dead” comics feature a great cast of characters with complex motivations and relationships. Many of those characters made it to the television show – well, at least characters with the same names made it in. Things have changed so drastically from comic to screen that one has to ask – when does an adaptation stop being an adaptation?

After this summer, expect all your nerdy friends to endlessly say, “Believe, Bruv!” Enjoy that quote while it lasts, because I’m sure many are going to run it into the ground soon.. so, obviously by the title of this news piece, I already have a hand in not doing that awesome line justice. Couldn’t be more proud. Anyway, the hoods vs. the aliens adventure film has been screening across all over the country since SXSW, and for good reason. Attack the Block is a film that’s going to live or die by word-of-mouth. If the buzz stays as positive as it currently is Screen Gems may end up with a little success on their hands. They’ve set a July 29th release date which is an already a jam packed weekend. With the already sure to be hits Cowboys and Aliens, The Smurfs, and (the supposedly excellent) Crazy, Stupid, Love, Attack the Block will have a lot of competition. Hopefully Joe Cornish‘s truly awesome film debut finds a broad enough audience to appreciate his genre meshing exercise in comedic badassery. Source: Box Office Mojo

If you think I have something positive to say about this abomination known as “The Doctor” I’m going to punch some sense into you.
