I'm not too much into the hollywood directors. As in, I pay no attention to directors anymore. I simply pay attention to the movie itself. If it peaks my interest, I'll watch it and if I find it doesn't suit my taste, then I'll stop watching it.
Like I said, Who is in it, could make the difference on whether or not, I leave my house to go to a theater to see it. And, even then, I'll most likely see it before it's launched in the U.S. anyway.
Most movies have their Premier on the West Coast or somewhere else in the world, before it is released to the entire U.S. Market. Therefore, I always have been forced to wait 6 months, before it is even available in my area. Just like the Ironman sequel, overseas had it before America did. It was available online long before it hit U.S. Markets through normal channels.
another note worth noting cags is that a lot of good actors CAN make bad movies. therefore, it DOES matter who directs and writes it, as any good actor will tell you. you can't have a great movie without a damn good script AND director running the show. an actor can really do so much for a film, as it's the director's job to produce quality. of course, this surprises me cags that a man of your intelligence wouldn't be aware of that.
One that I would like to see become movie material, is Battle of the planets, with the Phoenix , Mark, Jason, Kiop,Tiny and Ptincess, that was a cool cartoon, now to it done in movie formate like Garfield and Scooby doo, would be so cool!
We ( a friend with a Computer and AOL )made a site full of cool animated Count Duckula images and fiery page dividers sometime around 1997 - we copied the required html letter per letter from a "Html for dummies" book onto a AOL Home Pages site
I probably didnt enter a single string of html code into a keyboard again until 2006ish. I purchased my first PC in 2006 - prior I only used computers at work or school.
I was under 10 when Count Duckula was primetime - Im 28 now
I think He-Man deserves a second chance at the Big screen the Dolph Lundgren 80's party movie they made was ridiculous.
want to know what else comes out in 2012? the new batman and superman movies. Now that will be a great year for films as we'll even get to see the anticipated avengers movie as well. plus, the hobbit will be out too. i can't wait for that year. although it will be the last year of our lives supposedly.
personally, if i could pick any cartoon character that hasn't been made into a live action film yet. then I would pick groo. i don't know if comic books count with you guys or not. however, as a kid the four main comics i used to love reading were always spider-man, superman, ghost rider, AND groo. so far 3 out of those four have already gotten their own movies. therefore, it would totally kick a** for me if someone did a groo movie too. as I could proudly say that every comic book i was a fan of was made into a movie. how many ex comic book fans can say that? lol.
however, if im limited to solely to cartoons on tv that I watched. then i would have to say i would love to see the charlie brown gang get turned into a movie, as i could so see that working on the big screen. just my thoughts anyway.
