    Spielberg gives him the roles. Its his own fault for accepting them.

    But I respect that hes atleast come out and said Indy 4 was crap, hes even tried to take responsibility for it.

    See that? That is a trailer that shows so much that you already know how the movie goes.

    For the first time, a major Hollywood film will hit the $20 threshold at the box office, as movie-theater owners test the public's ability to absorb ever higher ticket prices.

    Several theaters will charge $20 per adult ticket to IMAX showings of the animated 3-D family film "Shrek Forever After," the fourth "Shrek" installment from DreamWorks Animation. The theaters include the AMC theater in Manhattan's Kips Bay neighborhood, AMC Loews 34, AMC Loews Lincoln Square and AMC Empire 42nd Street.

    The increases weren't officially announced, but were reflected in prices posted Wednesday on movie-ticketing Web sites such as Fandango.com and tracked by BTIG LLC media analyst Richard Greenfield.

    "With the state of the economy remaining questionable, we worry pricing is simply moving up too quickly," cautioned Mr. Greenfield in a research blog post, adding that he was especially concerned about how quickly children's ticket prices are increasing. "The danger is scaring consumers away from the movie theaters."

    This weekend's price increase come less than eight weeks after theater operators instituted some of the steepest hikes in a decade. Those increases in late March—in some cases of as much as 26%—varied theater to theater and focused on 3-D and IMAX showings of another DreamWorks Animation title, "How to Train Your Dragon." The same AMC theater in Manhattan charged $19.50 for an IMAX showing of "Dragon."

    The $20 ticket may prove to be a psychological barrier too steep for some moviegoers to overcome, but the industry appears ready to take the risk, especially in the wake of a string of 3-D blockbusters, from "Avatar" to "Alice in Wonderland." 3-D movies accounted for the vast majority of last year's 10% jump in domestic box-office sales. That figure is likely to climb even higher for 2010.

    While box-office revenues are up about 6% this year compared to the same period last year, attendance is slightly down—a reversal from several months of rapid expansion at the box office and a record-breaking year in 2009, when attendance was up more than 5% and revenues broke the $10 billion barrier.

    But piracy is killing the film industry!

    How much do IMAX tickets usually cost? I forget how much I paid to see The Dark Knight, but I don't think it was much less than that.

    Not sure on American prices, here I think they're about £12 which is like $20 or just under. Basically that article says they've already experienced rises of up to 26% and then they add on more for what is very little gain to the consumer. I'm just going to be dismayed is all when they blame a poor year on piracy and not their ridiculous greed.

    Eh. Movies in the theater are a treat, IMAX movies doubly so. I'm not really put off by the idea that people will have to go see Shrek 4 in a regular theater if they don't want to pay $20.

    Twenty bucks to see the movie once at a crowded theater where some goose is talking into his cell phone the whole time, or wait a few months and pay twenty bucks for the DVD with special features and commentary tracks and you can watch it as many times as you want. Hmm, tough choice.

    I refuse to pay more for my ticket than I do for my popcorn. That's why I go to matinees.

    And don't buy the popcorn.

    I thought the directors cut of Aliens at the very least added one important scene and thats the smart guns. It at least showed why the aliens didn't just break their barricade by brute force. And I believe it added in the part about Ripleys daughter.

    I think the scene about Ripley's daughter is pretty vital to the Ripley/Newt interaction and it should have never been cut to begin with.

    I'm not a huge fan of this film, but it's pretty watchable and widely considered a classic in the genre: Grease is getting re-released this summer. But they're not just re-releasing it. They're working it over so thoroughly that it makes what Lucas did to Star Wars look like a David Lean film.

    Grease: Sing-A-Long

    So, not only have they digitally added lensflares, animated doodles, and 3D karaoke subtitles, it appears they've edited all the smoking out of the film.

    I was looking forward to it so much, but I ended up being really dissapointed. The first 20 minutes is brilliant, but the rest is pretentious and slow for the sake of a shallow message. The worst offense is how the director threw away an insanely interesting character for no reason.

    I kept thinking that maybe it's going somewhere with the slow pace panning shots and the shots of them on a boat with the color tint changing from scene to scene for half an hour. But no. It went fucking no where.

    And what's worse is the mumbling. Bad enough that there is no sane dialogue in the movie, but when they do talk they talk low and mumble everything.

    Just a plain bad movie.

    Hahaha, goodness. I wonder how else they changed a song like "Greased Lightning". The lyrics certainly don't say "the chicks'll scream"

    So I was morbidly curious what the reviews said about Marmaduke. So I headed over to Rotten Tomatoes. I happened to like this excerpt from eFilmCritic.com:
    It contains approximately twice the laughs of "Sex and the City 2" and half the number of bitches.

    And in poor taste, the excerpt from Roger Ebert:
    The moment I saw Marmaduke's big drooling lips moving, I knew I was in trouble.
    And to keep us on topic, Have any interesting trailers come out recently other than new Scott Pilgrim one?
