In the movie biz, dailies are unedited raw footage from the day. The director peruses them and gets a rough outline of the stuff he shot that day. At Swiftfilm, the dailies are the best stories of the day plus some that didn’t make the cut. It’s the unedited form of Swiftfilm, in a fun little package. Enjoy.
Video game movies are a strange conundrum and there are numerous reasons why they tend to suck: bad stories to begin with, Uwe Boll, Uwe Boll, bad directors, bad scripts. But it hasn’t been often where the reason the movie sucks is because the company in control has no clue what they’re doing. Like with Halo and Microsoft. The maker of the Xbox didn’t really understand Hollywood so the entire thing kind of exploded.
At least comic book companies know what they’re doing. We’ve had some quality comic book movies lately and The Amazing Spider-Man looks promising. Although it’s kind of weird knowing Andrew Garfield won the role of Peter Parker for his cheeseburger-eating skills.
Is that how Robert Pattinson got the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight? No? OK, well now he has a weird new movie with David Cronenberg called Cosmopolis. It’s based on a book and it’s about the future but it’s in modern times and is talking about our future. Whatever, I’m totally confused but it looks interesting. Donkey!
I used to think Channing Tatum was a jackass, ya know. Surprisingly, he’s grown quite a bit as an actor. It’s nice seeing a legit director like Steven Soderbergh direct him in a promising movie like Magic Mike. And hell, Soderbergh must have some respect for him if he based the entire film around Tatum’s life story.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s life story went from Growing Pains to Titanic to a whole bunch of other movies. The element that links them all? He plays some tragic characters. I would cry for him if I didn’t know he was rich, has an army of Priuses (Prii?) and is dating Blake Lively.
I’m sure Leo and Blake’s love story is nothing like that of Ruby Sparks. The trailer for the film shows that the Paul Dano-starrer is a lot like that Stranger Than Fiction Will Ferrell movie, except that Dano creates his girlfriend by writing. It’s quirky awesome and comes from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine.
If you ever do write a book and, in the process, create a girlfriend out of thin air you should consider taking her on Carnival’s Saw-themed cruise! It sounds like a shouting-good time. You get to watch all 7 Saw movies, meet the stars of the movies and get tattoos and answer trivia!
I would much prefer a Bond cruise, honestly. Could you imagine the dress code? And the girls? And all the dudes thinking they’re James Bond? It would be amazingly cheesy. Until then, we have the Bond movies and this new production vlog showing off Shanghai. Groovy.
James Cameron must have said those exact words when he joined in on the fun of Planetary Resources, a new company that’s going to mine asteroids and do other explorer-y stuff in space. I still think Cameron is looking for unobtanium.
