Pompeii - Teaser Trailer


Sledgstone

Set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave on a ship heading for Naples works to get home to save the woman he loves and his best friend, a gladiator trapped inside the city's coliseum.

Pompeii will be in theaters February 2014.

Not much is shown in this trailer until the last 40 seconds, but from what I see, I'll keep my eye on this movie because it seems to have potential.

A predictable movie doesn't necessarily mean its a bad movie though if the characters & / or plot come off as dull I can only guess the movie isn't for me.

 

In which case I already hate "The Pchan Movie" based on the fact I've read the text to it more than I care to think about it.

  1. Pchan declares to hate a movie he hasn't yet seen.
  2. If the movie is liked by anyone in the forum Pchan needs to emphasis how much it still sucks.
  3. Pchan begrudgingly sees movies & still hates it.
  4. Pchan then recites other websites movie critics hate for the movie.
  5. Even if Pchan doesn't accept that no one will agree with his view he'll still act as if he was right all along about his opinion when most if not all of the forum doesn't really care about his opinion.
  6. Pchan starts this cycle again & again despite the fact the results tend to be the same.
  7. Is it possible Pchan just likes to troll other people who might like the movie? No!
  8. Plot Twist?!
  9. Pchan talks a lot about his favorite TV shows & this is soon followed by Pchan's favorite sports proving once & for all that Pchan secretly works for Microsoft when it comes to advertising for Xbox One.
  10. TV! TV! TV! Sports! Sports! Sports! TV! TV! TV! Sports! Sports! Sports!

 

As for Pompeii.... I don't feel the need to watch it. However it did give me the urge to watch Dante's Peak again.

Looks dumb. We all know what's going to happen.

 

I'm going to make an movie about the Alamo where Davey Crocket and Daniel Boone destroy the Mexican army, impales them all on steaks and the US takes over half of Mexico XD

But that would just ruin the whole plot to the sequel named The Mexican / American War where the US in fact has the ability to take over all of Mexico but then settles for buying off half they wanted at gun point.

 

....

 

Seriously dammit.... The US could've taken all of Mexico if it didn't chicken out.... What The F*** happened in that time to turn them into a bunch of pansies.... War Of 1812.... Failed to take over Canada.... Lost part of Maine.... At least we got a national anthem.... then Mexican / American War after Alamo was lost for being on what was a controversial border.... We won that?.... Gee.... Better not take this country over by force even though that's what we would've done with Canada....

Post of the week, Myk. I salute you, that was a lot of fun to read. 

 

I do agree with what you say about knowing what it could be about and still being good. Completely agree. I try to go watch things because I kinda like giving it a chance. I know I can't hike up that high, but I still like to try it out and few sweaty hours later, I feel good I could. So yeah, this's coming from someone who watched Drive Angry and thought it was fun.

 

I'm gonna end up watching this regardless. Just being honest about my first reaction heh.

Do these Escapist reviews break down the whole movie as they spoil it or give out a non-spoiler review? I've yet to click any of their links.

I watched this movie yesterday.. it was pretty much a rip off of the movie Gladiator. The CG effects for the volcano were good. I was very surprised Kiefer Sutherland was in this, he must have owed somebody a favor. XD This movie was more like a very high quality Syfy movie. It was decent to watch once, but definitely not something I'd rush out to buy on bluray.

      I started Ratchet and Clank on PS4 last week. That game felt so fun. Meanwhile I gave up on metal gear solid V phantom pain. It was too repetitive for me. I'm watching TetraNinja's play through now on youtube. I don't know who this guy is, but his videos are decent so far and his stealth gameplay is far superior to what I was able to accomplish.

      Just finished season 1 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans. I enjoyed it, but man I can't help but notice the parallels with Gundam Wing. A young female working for peace, a semi-emotionless male pilot, an antagonist that disguises himself with a mask in a red mobile suit? Eh, maybe I'm looking too much into it, there are more differences than similarities. Since CN has the broadcast rights, I hope Funi eventually gets season 2 on stream... its the only Gundam they have. I will say I'm not the biggest fan of the designs on this one. I liked Gusion and EB-AX2, but that was about it.

      Fucking hell that was a ride. Just finished watching Steins;Gate and I have to say its an amazing show. I finally understand why people love it so much. Characters are pretty interesting (pretty bland and stereotypical but none-the-less interesting), story is completely bonkers (we're talking Serial Experiments Lain and Boogiepop Phantom levels of bonkers) and amazing, and the sheer emotional ride this puts you through is both terrifying and exciting.
      Sure it starts out pretty slow but once you get to the halfway mark it seriously starts moving at an intense pace. I normally don't praise anime this much but this is truly a great show, almost a masterpiece if I've ever seen one (probably one of the only shows I have rated at 10 on MAL that actually deserves the rating for all the right reasons, not just pure enjoyment). I highly recommend watching it if you haven't, it's definitely worth the time investment (and I'll admit it's not for everyone but if you want a show that tears your emotions to shreds and makes you think this is definitely one for you).
      Seriously can't wait for Steins;Gate 0 to start airing on Thursday (really hope CR has the simulcast for it). Now I just need to find time to watch the movie and the OVA before it starts. Also need to hope the VN this is based off of goes on sale on Steam so I can see the actual story that wasn't adapted for the anime (and to see all the other endings).

      I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over the place. There isn't as much action so far which is disappointing. All these characters are so OP, but that was what was great about season 1. Especially since Ainz vs. Shalltear was an amazing finale with two ultra OP characters going at it like a chess game. However I figure everything happening now is leading up to something bigger. They're spending more time world building in season 2 in which they did very little of in season 1. Plus season 3 was ordered. People can say what they want about Funi, but I bet there are some series out there that would have never been renewed past it's first season 6-8 years ago. Props to netflix too even though their series are hit and miss. I finished A.I.C.O. Incarnation last night, while it didn't blow me away, I enjoyed it.. same goes for ID-0. It's come a long way from Toonami, spending days downloading stuff off Limewire and torrents, or staying up til 4am in hopes Sci-Fi played Akira or Vampire Hunter D

      So far Netflix is 1 for 3 on their new series. Sword Gai was ok, but it was more like a GARO/Guyver type clone. B: The Beginning could have been better written. Maybe its the story structure that is throwing me off as they are definitely more western in flow. I'll probably watch both for another season. Children of the Whales was pretty enjoyable and my favorite of the three. I definitely look forward for its most definite second season. It was pretty charming in a Studio Ghibli way.
