Movies – From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

Two movies trailers for you folks today – the first, ‘Solomon Kane’ is the adaptation of one of the less well-known characters of Robert E. Howard of ‘Conan’ fame:

Maybe sublime isn’t the right word for this – but hey, what’s not to like about a man who can kick ass wearing a Puritan hat? Besides, considering it’s a film based on a Robert Howard character, James Purefoy looks to be doing a better job of acting than ‘The Governator’…

The second trailer – all I can say is that sometimes you look at something and the only word that comes to mind is “WHY?” – in all the posts Flash has done on this blog regarding the original, I can’t ever recall thinking ‘you know, with better SFX, this would make a great film”

    I can’t imagine any sentient being EVER thinking that…

    Well apparently somebody did, because according to Wikipedia (granted), there’s not one but *two* remakes being made! I really don’t see the wisdom in this, really – I mean, Ed Wood thought he was making a great film when he made the original, and unless you can go into it with that level of self-delusion, the magic just isn’t going to happen….

    And, quite frankly, it’s only magical because it’s so bad!
