Around the JoBlo.com Watercooler!
In this new weekly column we take a look at some of the hot conversations currently taking place around the virtual watercooler in the JOBLO.COM FORUMS. Each week we'll present you with some new conversations that you can jump in quickly and participate in. Heck, it may even inspire you to create your own conversation. Here's what people are talking about this week...
"Why M. Night Shyamalan's career died"
"The guy's clearly talented. Just read his scripts for Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. There both extremely well done. So how did a skilled writer/director end up doing a movie adapted from some animated television series?"
"Naomi Watts to play Marilyn Monroe"
"The whole Monroe mystique doesn't appeal to me, but it's Andrew Dominik's first film since the great Jesse James, and Watts is one of my faves, so I'll probably see it."
"RIP Frank Frazetta"
"Frank Frazetta, an illustrator whose vivid colors and striking brushstrokes conjured up fantastic worlds of musclebound heroes fighting with broad swords and battle axes to defend helpless women from horrible beasts, died on Monday in Fort Myers, Fla. He was 82."
"Top 10 disappointments!!"
"Saw DEATH PROOF during the Thursday night Midnight opening weekend showing of Grindhouse to a packed house at college. The place was jumping during all of Planet Terror and the enthusiasm came to a screeching halt about 40 minutes into the second feature. One person summed up the experience: During the part when the two girls are fighting over whose belt they'll use, someone yelled 'DO SOMETHING!' Couldn't agree more."
"Trailers that give away/show the endings/twists of films"
"Is one cool revealing shot in the trailers really going to entice the general public and make that much difference to the box office bottom line?"
"Most Disturbing Movie in Horror History"
"I'm just trying to top Cannibal Holocaust..."
"Lost: The Final Season"
"I just hope it doesn't end on a 'twist' as in 'it was all a dream' or what not. Nothing out of left field. I'd hate a Sopranos ending. The show needs to tie up its loose ends, not end in midstream."
"Teal and Orange"
"Basically, it explains that many films recently are going for an almost exclusively orange and teal color scheme, because the natural orange skin tones of the characters tend to "pop" when contrasted with blue surroundings. This is because blue is the exact opposite of orange on the color wheel, just like red is opposite of green and yellow of purple."
