I thought this was really cool till I found out it was an actual song. I thought it was a cool ceremony, written specifically for this movie. The fact that they used a song from an actual band is so unoriginal. It sucks away the awesomeness that was the best part of the movie. Plus, it doesn't fit the time period, at all.
>he thinks Moulin Rouge and A Knight's Tale are anything other than total shite
That movie's entire gimmick was taking contemporary music and shoving it in a zany story about a wacky whorehouse featuring a lovable tragic prostitute with TB. It's at least a different kind of cringe since ridiculous what the fuck moments are what they were going for during the first third of the movie.
>Hook remake comes out

IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES
hey man if you were like 18 years old when grunge was relevant you'd be in your 40s now
This makes the 2003 version of Peter Pan look like a classic.
I didn't realize that was Hugh Jackman until he started singing under his breath. I'd recognize that nasally voice anywhere after he fucked up Valjean. This is practically a step up from his attempt at Bring Him Home.
I don't think any nirvana song should be covered. The point is that its super basic and kinda sounds like shit. Anyone else playing it just makes me remember how shit Nirvana actually is.
I mean, I get it its punk and its supposed to be ass but I don't even think its good punk
WTF,I heard this was awful but now I kind of want to watch it. And if if I was some garishly cliche villain, I would absolutely force slaves to sing 90's grunge rock songs.
You fuckers better hope I never come into power.
Wearing yellow and black will be MANDATORY
Also Jason Isaacs >>> Hugh Jackman as Hook/Blackbeard.
Shakespeare's dialogue is fun as fuck and fits the weirdly exaggerated style of his movies. Imo as an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet it was kinda shite but the dialogue wasn't the issue.
>dialogue wasn't the issue
No shit, it's fucking SHAKESPEARE. The problem is most film actors are not properly trained in shakespeare, so they have no fucking clue how to say their lines with the right intention, stresses, operatives, and voice.
When people try to speak Shakespeare as if they were just talking normally it sounds fucking abysmal, and that's because it's fucking NOT normal. Fuck, it makes me so fucking mad that the BEST Shakespeare on film was Henry V, which was two decades ago.
Makes more sense for the movie but a much worse scene, the Pan one is pretty good.
Once I watched a
gayadaptation of Romeo and Juliet with the dialogue mostly intact and spoken conversationally and it was weirdly well done once you got used to it. Or maybe it just seemed like that because the entire movie was fucking weird. Either way, film adaptation of Shakespeare is hard to get right without doing strange shit because good stage acting is a whole lot different from good screen acting, so I say fuck it, might as well encourage the bizarre adaptations.
What about Coriolanus? That was in a modern setting and had based Ralph Fiennes in it.
Truth be told I haven't seen it, but I know that Ralph is a trained actor and feel he could probably carry that.
But then again, I thought Fassbender could act, and his MacBeth looks fucking terrible. It's like he's doing a batman voice throughout every trailer.
separated from birth?
This could be cool if it was set in modern day. Like Hook has just been trapped in Neverland for hundreds of years and him and his crew are this bizarre hodgepodge of culture from centuries of people dribbling in.
Like some kid wound up there with some nirvana tapes and the pirates just latched onto it or something.
Peter himself gets abducted during WWII, it's implied that Blackbeard Jackman abducts kids throughout different times(hence him knowing a fucking Nirvanna song). Neverland is an alternate dimension or whatever.
Not at all what I was trying to say, but more that Shakespeare's words were written in a very specific way to make them understandable and beautiful. if you choose to NOT follow it, you better know what you're doing and how to deliver the lines to make them intelligible.
I'm totally fine with interpretations, setting shifts, even cutting and re-working dialogue. What I'm not fine with is a writer who thinks that they know Shakespeare better than the bard himself.
>Grimdark edgy Peter Pan remake
>Goes for the classic "WE ONLY NEED ONE WORD" title gimmick signaling a failed reinventing of a series
At the start of the movie, Pan is in an orhpanage, and they noted that some of the children are going missing (they are being sold to Blackbeard by the woman in charge as slaves).
The main theory the kids have, is that since no one's adopting, they're probably moving the kids out of London because of the war (it takes place during World War 2), and they're taking them someplace safe. To Canada probably.
>using the term dad rock in general.
Nice b8 m8
Yeah... it's not even like a "different times" thing, he is literally wearing women's clothing from head to toe. The only thing masculine is the armour, officer's sash and single earring.
I guess there's no reason the residents of neverland couldn't have access to music from the normal world, but I still hate it.
They're pirates, make them sing something piratey.
And I don't know who thought it would be a good idea to give blackbeard a dress and a wig. GIVE HIM A FUCKING HAT!
I've listened to it before and it was all right, but now actually watching it I can dig it
Let's not forget his co-star.
These two were perfect.
What kind of ham is best for Shakespeare? All of it is sarcasm? Unfortunately I've never had the pleasure of looking old play manuscripts that indicate tone of the script, just very direct lines.
Hook and Smee were great. The rest was pretty lame. And unfortunately the rest was most of the movie. Terrible child actors and wacky lost boy nonsense.
What's the best movie with pirates in it?
>unironically using the term dad rock
enjoy your "neutral milk hotel" cuck
No. I thought it was pretty cool tbqh.
I'll watch Pan now.
Somehow this was a movie everybody knew would bomb by just watching the fucking trailer but I was still interested. Then I saw the shit reviews and forgot about it but this makes me wanna see it again.
It's an origin story, her being there wouldn't even make sense.
And there's a lot of worse things in the movie.
Blackbeard snorting pixie dust like cocaine.
Hook having a country accent.
Pixie dust doesn't make you fly, it makes you younger.
Peter can only fly because his dad was the fairy prince.
Rooney Mara is somehow the Princess when the Chief is played by a Native, and she's the only white person in the tribe.
It's all shit.
Barrie would be turning in his grave.
Reminder that the screenplay was by Jason Fuchs who is doing the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
I couldn't believe it myself, but you can look it up. How anyone can get work after coming up with the idea in the OP is beyond me, much less the Wonder Woman flick.
This movie got 26% on rottentomatoes and made $35 million on a $150 million budget. Thank god /tv/ makes a daily thread to point out this movie isn't good. It's like making a daily thread to point out the ocean is wet
Nirvana kind of deserved their popularity. They were one of the only good grunge bands desu. In Utero is classic all the way through and I generally don't like grunge much as a genre.
>can't find good songwriters to write songs for your movie
>use a shitty mumble-mumble song from the early 90s
Any of the old pirate songs would have worked. Any fucking thing. Even pirate metal is better.
I just don't see what there is to talk about. It was poorly received by everyone and flopped accordingly. Shouldn't /tv/ be doing their usual contrarian thing and saying it's actually underrated?
>people giving a shit about Peter Pan movie #212
You're either underage or you've been living under a rock your entire life. Nirvana have been a huge part of pop culture for over twenty years. Everyone knows Smells Like Teen Spirit.
i..i...i liked it, nice ship design, and setting
How the rest of the movie?
Honestly the worst thing about that scene is neither the song or Hugh Jackman overacting, but rather the child actor, that whatever it is blonde thing behind him, and the fact that everybody is out of tune.
Looks like a fucking mess.
>I don't kneel to anybody!
Fucking really kid
>two cases of modern-day songs used in what is clearly ceremonial matters, showing us that Blackbeard has picked up slaves from the modern era or is from the future or some shit
>Smells Like Teen Spirit to pay homage to Blackbeard, the man afraid to grow old
>Blitzkrieg Bop for when they're making the slaves walk the plank
The inclusion of those two songs are most definitely not the worst part of Pan.
>it's not even like a "different times" thing
It's an exaggerated look, to show he's a vain motherfucker in love with overblown theatrics. The whole singing ceremony should be a tip-off.
If Pan is shit then what movie should I watch for cute shota goodness?
>unironically using terms that describes things in a way that most people understand
Treasure Planet is out of the running just for the annoying robot.
If we're talking Treasure Island adaptation, the one with that crossdressing comedian as Silver was high up there. It did take liberties with the story, but they were good changes.
>all the recent comments that are against this art are from low IQ /v/edditors
lmao no surprise at all
>that fucking pleb CycloneMetal is there too
It budget was huge with no control sets rebuilt on the fly, and this
>Matthew Modine several years later went on record to explain some of the reasons why the film's costs spiraled so much and became such an expensive flop. He cited one example where cases and cases of V8 juice were shipped out to Malta, expressly for director Renny Harlin and his wife Geena Davis. Towards the end of the shoot, the juice was served up for everybody as there was an entire room of it to be dispensed with. He also said that every scene had three cameras in constant use, resulting in tons and tons of film being used for every shot.
I was going to say that I watched it for Cary Elwes, but then I realised that it wasn't Cary Elwes playing the guy.
For some reason my memory seems to have melded the two, just because of the mustache.
>tfw you will live to see WB spiral down into oblivion
God, all these flops, all these future flops, it's going to be glorious to see this one powerful movie studio absolutely crumble and die, as Universal and Disney are raping it from two sides.
