Who is going to give the first report? I don't know if you know this or not but if you go and see this movie you can see the new Batman trailer. If you see this movie in an IMAX you can watch the first five minutes of the movie Batman.

From everything I've seen so far review wise they're said I Am Legend SUCKS HARD! I don't know if I will see it or not... I know I will for sure sneak in and see the Batman trailer!!! Hehehehe.

I agree, a friend of mine saw a pre-screening of I Am Legend and said it was horrible. I think part of that is Will Smith. I mean he already sucks as an actor. Yes he has had some great roles, but his overall portfolio sucks in the acting department.

The film looks like its trying to hard to be witty, scary, and hip.

I am with you on this one Larry. But hey, the Dark Knight should rock!

If you want to see the Dark Knight trailer filmed with a camera off the screen here it is on you tube! It won't last long!

View quickly...

If you go to Walmart and look at their 1.00 video section, up near the checkout, you might find the original with Vincent Price. I bought it a couple of weeks ago. Not a bad version, maybe better than rhis one. I don't know I haven't seen it.

Here's the video, it's just someone with a camera in the theater. Looks pretty good, I think Ledger is going to do a great job as the Joker. I can't wait! -Tyler

^ Nevermind... seems like Youtube.com is removing all REAL videos of the trailer. I guess they are willing wanting this to stay "somewhat" a secret. -Tyler

I found another place you can view it... it sends CHILLS up your spine. I never thought I'd say this but a gay cowboy is the best Joker ever!!! LOL

This guy is awesome!!!


From what I'm seeing I think I'm looking at the single best comic movie ever made!

To be honest, Dark Knight looks like a watered down PG-13 version of The Crow with Bat Man thrown into the mix. I like that it's dark and gritty, but I'm not that impressed by what I've seen so far. I'm sure it will do incredible at the box office once it's released, but it just looks like too many movies that have come out before.

Planning on seeing I am Legend tonight. If I do I will post a short review when I get home.

I just came back from seing the movie "I am Legend". Some parts were scary as hell (i actually screamed out loud in the theater). And the overall movie was pretty good, but the ending SUCKED!!! I still think its pretty good though, probaly because its a zombie movie, and ive always dreamed of being in a deserted city.
Its definately better than the mist though.

Just got home. OK I AM Legend is just a so so horror movie if that, but as a science fiction flick it was Awesome. YOu've probably gathered this much by the previews but, due to a viral outbreak, Will Smith is the last human on earth. Those that were not killed by the virus were mutated into zombies but Will is immune and tryign to find the cure. Anymore info than that and I will ruin the movie for you.

Pros- good suspense moments, interesting monologs from Will toward his dog and other inanimate abjects as he trys to maintain his sanity, and strangely enough, a believeable story line, as in this could actually happen.

The Cons- no real story line for the creatures (they've just been reduced down to killers surviving) , too much computer animation for my taste. I'm not a big comp. ani. fan though so... whatever.

I give the movie a strong B+. It's not a film that will change the horror or Scifi genera forever but it was worth the ticket price.

Now I'm really looking forward to Sweeney Todd next week....

I do believe this is going to be one of the best movies ever. A lot of people will go to see I am Legend just to see The Dark Knight Trailer. Awesome footage, now if I could only find the Imax footage.

The real question to all the I AM LEGEND goers...did you see the Batman trailer? How did it look? Did anyone see IAL on Imax and see the first five minutes of the movie. What was better IAL or the Batman trailer. LOL

Definitely I AM legend. But I'm not a comic book guy either. I haven't seen any of the Spiderman, Hulk, fantastic 4, movies and lost interest in the whole Batman franchise when Jim Cary was the riddler. Mystery Men was pretty funny though.

It looked interesting but not enough for me to go see it. Maybe watch the DVD if that dude with the afro isn't painting "happy little trees" on the PBS channel. I guess I'm a poor one to ask as I'm not interested in it to start with. Sorry.

The Batman trailer was AWESOME!!! A darker look at the joker for a change! I AM LEGEND sucked ass and not even worth renting on DVD, but oh well....that's just my opinion.

12-15-2007, 06:26 PM
I am legend, is a remake of a remake, this movie has been done twice before "Last man on Earth" and "The O Maga Man". both good flicks for their time. I went today and saw it and liked it. I even got a tear in my eye when the dogs fate is sealed. As for "The Dark Knight", I am Batmaned out but I am looking forward too "IronMan"

12-16-2007, 08:00 AM
i thought i am ledgend was great, as for the batman trailer
obvioulsy the full movie is going to be better than a trailler

actually i though i am ledgends ending was great,
its not your typical happy ending, but it had a deep meaning if you think about it.

when i saw it im like, yep definetly using that designin my carn-evil room next year

12-16-2007, 10:00 PM
Saw I Am Legend last night, I thought it was great, would definitely recommend it. Had me jumping several times, great suspense. I've heard several people talk about the ending sucking, I guess I don't have a frame of reference since I didn't read the book, was it the same ending?


12-16-2007, 10:43 PM
"obvioulsy the full movie is going to be better than a trailler"

Seen way too many movies where all the best parts were in the trailer and the rest of the movie was just 90 minutes of filler.

saw it and well i wish i had waited for it to come out on dvd so i could change the chanel when i got board.

Here is a link to the new Batman trailer that was uploaded by Warner Brothers...so you're seeing the crisp clean trailer.

If you remember at the end of Batman Begins Gordon says 'he has a taste for the theatrical like you'. .. hence the website.

What is really clever is when you go to this website its a website for a trailer company, you know selling those trailers you live in. I love it!


12-18-2007, 01:33 PM
HAHAHA... I love it! -Tyler

12-18-2007, 02:10 PM
Follow the link in the top right hand corner of the trailer ad. It takes you to The Gotham Times website. Go to page two and read the correction printed with the letters to the editor. It lists another website - www.whysoserious.com. That takes you to what looks like some sort of scavenger hunt.

Back on the first page at the top it lists a phone number for the subscription department. It's actually a working number. Pretty cool.

If you read the book-THIS MOVIE SUCKED!!!! Just about nothing was remotely close or the same as the book which was amazing. Definately read the book-it's a short read and a great story UNLIKE this piece of crap movie! This movie was supposed to be made with schwarzenegger in the lead role about 10 years ago, but the budget was too huge...Arnold wanted to do it bad for years and unfortunetely it never came to be. Now after all the waiting I had to settle for this......LAME!!! Lol...


12-18-2007, 04:12 PM
Getting the same response from everyone on here and who I speak to in person. If you read the book, you hated it. If you didn't, like in my case, there were no expectations, so most people have enjoyed it.

I'll see if my opinion changes as I intend to try to curtail my ADD, and sit down long enough to read the book, or perhaps a compromise and listen to the audiobook in the car.

At any rate, if the thread isn't dead by then, I"ll report back.

However, a new theory, if people stop reading books, movies will get better? ;)

Just kidding,


12-18-2007, 07:38 PM
I just watched I Am Legend, and I'm confused why so many people thought that it sucked....It was a great movie, good story and great suspense. There were five of us and all of us really liked it. I never read the book or saw the other versions, but I think it's well done on it's own merits. The new Batman trailer did not look very impressive to me at all. Same old same old with those superhero films, they are all the same. The Joker did look pretty cool though but that franchise went way down after the first film. Who knows, maybe this one can revive it but I wouldn't be surprised if the whole comic book superhero movie things dies out pretty soon....

Overall, I thought the movie was sound in terms of FX, story and so on. IT did suck however because of Will SMith. He is a highly overrated actor and his films are hit or miss on him being believable in them. Don't get me wrong, Happyness, was aweseom, Ali was great...but overall SMith killed this film.

Great film to see, renting wise, but not to spent 12 bux at the theater to see it.

12-19-2007, 09:17 AM
Will Smith is not great by any means I agree with you there. Arnld would have made the movie more interesting...Since someone above said he wanted to do it...

I just read that New Line and Peter Jackson have come to an agreement, and he will in deed be making The Hobbit movies set for release 2010 and 2011!!! This is great news for fans of LOTR!!!


NEW YORK — Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema have reached agreement to make J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, a planned prequel to the blockbuster trilogy The Lord of the Rings.
Jackson, who directed the Rings trilogy, will serve as executive producer for The Hobbit. A director for the prequel films has yet to be named.

Relations between Jackson and New Line had soured after Rings, despite a collective worldwide box office gross of nearly $3 billion — an enormous success. The two sides nevertheless were able to reconcile, with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) splitting The Hobbit 50/50, spokemen for both studios said Tuesday.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said in a statement. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

Two Hobbit films are scheduled to be shot simultaneously, similar to how the three Lord of the Rings films were made. Production is set to begin in 2009 with a released planned for 2010, with the sequel scheduled for a 2011 release.

This movie was a huge dissapointment for me. I think I went into it expecting a 28 days later type of film and it was far from it. I Liked Legend right up until I saw the first Zombie/Vampyre/ whatever, I thought The CGI was very poor(Although I did have a good Laugh when the one "zombie" was smashing his face into the Pavement after falling out a window into daylight) and the look of them made the Story not as Believable. From that Point on it felt like Van Helsing. I thought Will Smith was actually the most Believable Part of the film (that's not saying much) And the ending was complete Crap! Let me get this Straight, These "Zombies" can climb huge Buildings but cement Barriers around a small town will keep them out?? COME ON!!! I just hope AvsP#2 will cheer me after wasting my time and money on Legend.

12-19-2007, 08:27 PM
Just saw it. I actually thought it was pretty good, with the exception of the ending.
