Looks interesting, kind of weird......i like that it appears it was shot on location instead of all CGI backgrounds.

I don't know if I was blown away, but it'll be interesting to follow this one. It's directed by Andrew Stanton of Pixar fame... he directed WALL-E and Finding Nemo, and was a writer on the Toy Story films. Also, Peter Gabriel on the music there, it's a great cover of an Arcade Fire song "My Body is a Cage."

Hey, guess what? I just got my IMAX print of "Real Steel". Guess what it came with? Yup... a "John Carter" trailer. Not sure if it'll be 2D or 3D yet, I'll have to run the trailer and see what it says.

Eh, I'm sure it'll be okay. At least it looks like it has some neat action and special effects. It's "Rock Em Sock Em Robots", how bad can they **** it up?

That's sort of like a guy in a horror film saying "what could possibly go wrong?"

I think it'll be fine for what it is, a kids movie.

Won't catch me watching it in a million years, though. And that's fine, I don't think 37-year old dudes are the target audience.

heh, understood. Ill probably take my son.....although its another one of those "Transformers" quandries for me. I noticed its rated PG-13 and Hollywood feels like they have to add in language and adult situations to a kids movie. Meanwhile, anyone over 16 probably feels like this plays too young for them. I dont get why Hollywood does this??

John Carter looks intriguing. Here's hoping that it is good.

Per$onally it $eem$ to me like there'$ a few $pecific rea$on$.

By making it both a "kid's movie" and a "Transformers"-style FX film for nerds who remember playing "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots", they double the market share.

If it were just a kid's movie, it'd make $40M. If it were a blood-and-guts FX fantasy, it might make $100+M. By doing both, it might not make for a better movie, but it'll probably make for $150+M. Which is all they care about.

Wikipedia sez Real Steel is based off a 1950s short story, not RockemSockemRobots. Make of that what you will.

Well, RESER was introduced in 1964. That whole 50s-1980 era was when robots took off in pop culture. Robbie the Robot, "Lost In Space", all the cheap sci-fi films, Isaac Asimov's novels, etc.,.

BTW, I'm screening my print now. So far it's not too bad. Because it's a Disney film it's definitely working the father-son-dysfunction angle. The kid playing his kid is like an 11-year-old version of the annoying kid who played little Anakin in "Phantom Menace" (picture that kid with an 11-year-old's annoying smart-ass attitude). Jackman is playing the "likeable rogueish asshole", and you know eventually he and the kid will bond, blah blah blah. Still, compared to a lot of the dreck I've seen lately, it's fairly entertaining and has some nice cinematography so far.
