Smith is Pharaoh

09.08.2008

Many people (maybe just me) have dubbed Will Smith "The Black Tom Cruise". Maybe it's due to their winning smiles, their ability to open films, or their marriages to C-list actresses. Or maybe it's because their movies are kind of like totally similar to one another. Case in point, Will's latest is called THE LAST PHARAOH, in which he plays Taharqa, the pharaoh who battled Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt. Didn't Tommy C once play the last samurai in some film called THE LAST SAMURAI? Ah whatever. Samurai/Pharaoh, Will/Tom, Katie/Jada, white/black. The two gentlemen love eachother and they love being big deals and even if I told them that they're copying eachother's careers, they wouldn't listen to me. After all, I have acne.
Extra Tidbit: The film is being written by the dude who wrote BRAVEHEART.

C Listers?

Jada Pinkett may not be a huge star, but probably not a C lister. I doubt Nicole Kidman, Mimi Rogers (especially at her peak) nor even Katie Holmes are truly C listers. Andy Dick is C list. Unless you were trying to be clever in a sexist way Mr. Barna. Oh, were you trying to be clever?

Six Degrees of Separation? Ali? Pursuit of Happyness? (Or am I blinkered by my Will Smith appreciation?)

I could see this being a good film if they go the direction of Troy or Gladiator. They have to get one of the Scott brothers. Randall Wallace writting? I don't know about that one. This ain't no Braveheart

Truth be told, Will Smith should kneel before The Cruise, guy has played all kind of caracthers and Smith is kind of stuck in the same one. No doubt hes a box office master but Im yet to see him working on a 100% serious role.

Actually, I think Jada is more of a B-lister, and I still haven't seen Will play a sociopath or a male chauvinist.

an epic egyptian film? power of smith!

And written by the writer of Braveheart, no less? Those epic sword and sandal films are fantastic. As long as their directed by somebody like Scott, and not somebody who makes Mummies. Thanks to the box-office powers of Smith, we might get a big budget epic here, very cool. And yeah, Smith is kindof a wee bit less creepy than Cruise.

I gotta say...

I have alot of respect for him, after working on Hancock. He was the most down to earth all around nice guy. We would be in the middle of shooting a scene, and if one of his fans yelled his name (we were out on Hollywood Blvd) he would stop and answer. He took the time to sign autographs and take pictures with them. And he kept everyone's spirits up (needed during 12 hours of filming) by joking around with us.

Yeah, but Will Smith doesn't frighten people when he laughs. . . or talks.
