“There’s thousands of them, and they’re pissed.”

Despite a plea from the cast and crew for Piranha 3D to be considered for Oscar nomination recently, I think it is fairly safe to say that Piranha 3D won’t be getting too close to any awards this season. In fact, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that Piranha 3D is not one of the best films out this year. A mixture of a weak storyline, bad acting, bad directing, poor use of 3D and weak attempts to push sex and blood into our faces rounds up everything about Piranha 3D. However, there is also some small amount of charm in there. Piranha 3D is exploitation cinema at its highest. It has the gore, it has a remake, it has a sequel, it has the sex, and it has the extra couple of dollars earned for it being in 3D. It knows that it’s never going to leave much of an impression on the audience, except a few cheap laughs. (more…)

If you’ve been following our site at all, you know that I am a huge fan of Director Duncan Jones and his first film “Moon”.  I first wrote about him in my piece Directors You Should Know About: Duncan Jones. Then he was nice enough to write us A Private Twitter Message. Well now the blog Man Made Movies, which is essentially a Duncan Jones-only blog, has an exclusive interview with him, in which he says:

“Well, I think it is safe to say that the film (Source Code) will be out early next year. My edit is complete, and we are working hard on visual effects, choosing a composer and trying the film out on a few people just to see how it goes over. Lots to do really, but everything is coming together, and I am in the capable hands of Paul “Mount Rushmore” Hirsch!”

“I would have loved to do the Judge Dredd movie that is underway. I was in fact sent the script to look at. Its a great script, and I hope I will not rue the decision of passing on it. Thing was, I had such a strong idea of what I wanted to do with a Dredd movie, I could not bring myself to take it on and not do it my way! … and its not like I could do it as a sequel either; my Dredd would have been really weird, and dark and funny, but not your traditional introduction to a hero character. I dont even know if I could have made my version of the film pitch-able. It was maybe too off the wall.”

Head over to Man Made Movies for the full interview!

Bus Driver: This Source Code Cut is one piece of ace, I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
Billy Madison: No, you don’t.
Bus Driver: Well, not me personally but a guy I know. He got in and *watched it on*. Wooo-eee!
Billy Madison: No, he didn’t.
Bus Driver: No, no, no he didn’t. But you could imagine what it’d be like if he did, right…?

Everybody on?! Good, great, grand, wonderful.
NO YELLING ON THE BUS!

Awhile back we wrote up a story called “Directors You Should Know About — Duncan Jones (Moon)”. Well Duncan Jones himself was nice enough to send us the twitter message seen above. Looks like he’s already done filming “Source Code” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and it will indeed be released in 2011! I can’t wait! Be sure to subscribe to our new Facebook/Twitter pages to automatically get all the latest updates on the film!
