The MTV Movie Awards are voted for by the public, but definitely a young group of people. It always seems to be battle of the fandoms on who will pick up the different awards. This year seemed to be know different as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga all went head to head. I think some of the categories show quite a wide range of actors and performance types but at the end of the day it’s more of a popularity contest than anything else.
Elle Fanning – Super 8
Melissa McCarthy – Bridesmaids
Liam Hemsworth – The Hunger Games
Rooney Mara – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Shailene Woodley – The Descendants – WINNER

Since we first saw Captain Jack Sparrow back in 2003 in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, everyone loved him. The fourth film in the pirates franchise was released last week, that being On Stranger Tides. These films all work so well due to the fantastic acting from Johnny Depp as Captain Jack. Throughout all four films we are given so many funny and fantastic lines which make them so loveable.
So here we go in a top 10 count down of Captain Jack Sparrow’s best lines from all four films!
Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) returns for the fourth time in this journey to strange tides in search for the fountain of youth. But he is not the only one who is searching for it.
The downside of going to the cinema once maybe twice a week is that you will end up going to see some bad films at some point. Or maybe not just bad, but disappointing after they have been built up so much. I have managed to see 41 films from the year 2010, so picked by 10 worst from those!
Some of the films may come as a bit of a shock on the worst film list, but just how I felt watching the films. The more I have looked over my list the more it appears disappointment set in whilst really looking forward to seeing the films.
Been a while since I’ve had the movie quote of the day on my blog. Today’s is the wisdom of Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
“Well, yes mate. See, I’m dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you need to watch out for, because you never know when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.”
The third installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise really is going to have a massive following and build up after the success of Batman Begins and then The Dark Knight in recreating the Batman series the third installment which is currently slated for a 2012 release, has been creating press since The Dark Knight’s credits rolled. Heath Ledger’s death which occurred before the release of The Dark Knight, the ending which had us wondering The Joker’s fate, yet we knew we would never see the character in that form again. A sad moment for so many reasons, Ledger’s Joker gained an Oscar and so much critical acclaim and was definitely one of performances of the decade if not all time. This has then all raised the very good question of which villain shall be making an appearance in this third film in the series. Apparently the answer to that question is THE RIDDLER.
The Riddler was last seen in Batman Forever portrayed by Jim Carrey, in a fun crazy way. Very light and comic book like, seemed as though he came straight from the pages of the comics these films are based on. I can’t deny that I have always loved Jim Carrey’s Riddler for the age I was when Batman Forever was released and class that film as a very guilty pleasure now. But we have already witness that Nolan’s Batman films aren’t like anything we have ever seen before, they are darker and not going for obvious laughs in a fun way. They are more serious and after what he did with The Joker, we can only begin to imagine how sinister and evil he could make The Riddler.
The fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean is due to land on our screens in May 2011. The major build up has begun already with Captain Jack Sparrow aka Johnny Depp, making an appearance on a teaser video at comic-con. I am very much looking forward to this film in hope that they can finish the franchise on a high after the slight disappointment of the third film. It will be interesting to see how it all works without Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swan (Keria Knightley) after the much publicized announcements that they would not be returning for the fourth film.
The 10 films I found the best from the year 2009. Yes you may think its now April, but I was trying to keep it to films from 2009 based on the year they were made rather than UK release date as that is often different to the US release date. Anyway I didn’t want to end up with a confusing list not containing some of the best of 2009 because I saw them at the beginning of 2010.
Check it out see if you agree with many of the films! As I am sure some of the films included would not have been expected.
Being an actor and being attractive at the same time and in some cases being labelled a “pretty boy” can place a lot of extra pressure on the actor. After so long if they are not already showing brilliant acting roles they hit a point when their good looks no longer cut it in the world of film. This could be related to that if they are a young actor their “fan girls” grow up and they are still trying to do the same type of roles, this loses some of their fan base and its either show you can act or the work will dry up and you will slowly be forgotten about. But if they can act and show they can act what a career they will have!
I have recently been sent some exclusive content from the 108th issue of “Flaunt Magazine” – The Abandoment Issue. Which features Benicio Del Toro who has recently starred in Wolfman.
The article/interview is in a very candid setting and lets you see another side of Del Toro.
The Feral Nature of Benicio Del Toro and the impossibility of man

A puerto rican man with a hangdog look rubs at his tired eyes. A blossom of hard silver—a lion’s head worn on his left ring finger—stares back out at the room, upside down. Rain whips at the windows, sounding like handfuls of small marbles thrown by hoodlums in search of a dumb fight. A patio table hops and upends, its umbrella snapped open by a gust, dragging the entire contraption out into the street. An old lady draped in clear plastic, a yellow cane hooked around her thin left wrist, peers into the storefront, agape. A quick glimpse of messy teeth disappears behind the cloud of her exhale.
“She was looking at you!” exclaims the Puerto Rican man, startled, as the woman backs into the storm and continues along her path.
Alice is now 19 years old and returns to Wonderland but has no memory of the place or anyone, will it all come back to her in the end? Will she fulfill her destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. She reunites with all of the characters from her childhood adventure which she believed was a dream. Could the Mad Hatter convince her that it was not a dream and in fact real?
The up and coming release of Alice in Wonderland will be the 7th collaboration between director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp. They keep putting out amazing films, with Depp putting in brilliant performances. We see it a lot when certain directors keep working with the same actors and putting out very good films, so once an actor finds a director who can bring out the best in them is it best for them to keep collaborating? I think so. Depp and Burton are a prime example of creating good films together which are wacky, wild and often random.
I have been looking forward to Alice in Wonderland since hearing that Tim Burton would be making the film. I love Tim Burton films as they are always very different to anything you have seen before. The film is due for release on Friday and I am very much hoping that I can get to see it on Friday.
Earlier this week we had the Odeon cinema change announcing that they would not be showing the much anticipated film because Disney plan to release the DVD 12 weeks after the cinema release instead of the usual 17 weeks. I found this very strange that Odeon were willing to lose out on so much money by not showing the film and letting their usual customers got o other cinema chains. This didn’t really effect myself as I am a Cineworld customer. Cineworld is actually opening the film on a massive release with hundreds of screens across the country. Odeon changed their mind and decided to release the film this Friday. It really does look like its going to have a big box office taking.
Today’s quote comes from The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
“Nothing is permanent, not even death.”
Now to the second part of the countdown . . . films 40-31 . . .
Another new poster for the much anticipated Alice in Wonderland movie has been released this one featuring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. This is my favorite poster so far, but I think more will be released.
After seeing the new posters and mentioning seeing the trailer at the cinema the other day in 3D. I decided to go on a search on youtube to find the trailer and post in on my blog. I really do just love Johnny Depp the more and more I see him. I do find this trailer very teasing as you do not really get to see much (which is a plus) but it really leaves you wanting more.
What do you make of this trailer?
Are you looking forward to this movie?
Eventually after what has felt like forever, Heath Ledger’s final role (although uncompleted) has eventually been released and I have just returned from a showing tonight (edit. I started the review when I first got back). I really have no idea where to start in this review as there really is so much to cover and say about this movie. I really do think it will need a few viewings to really see everything it has to offer as so much goes on and quite a lot of information to take in for each of the characters stories.
Today’s picture is another picture from a Golden Globes ceremony, with his co-star from POTC . . . none other than Johnny Depp.
Just come across another poster for “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”. I think I like this poster the best (so far) and think it really catches the craziness which is shown in the trailer for the movie. It really is building up suspense for the release, I for one cannot wait til it comes out.
Rob Marshall has been announced as the new director of the 4th POTC film. This seems to have started rumours that Johnny Depp will drop out of the project and therefore to Captain Jack Sparrow. I do not know how true that is, but will POTC be able to work without Captain Jack? I really do not think it could.
Whats everyone else’s view?
With the release of this most anticipated film approaching, the final appearance of Heath Ledger with his role being completed by Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp. I have come across quite a few pictures from this film and decided to post some of my favorites.
