So,

the reviews for Land of the Lost aren't looking so good. Granted, there are only a couple of 'professional' critics I listen to (Maestro of course ;) )

But the fans are not happy either as shown by yahoo user reviews.

The film cost around $100M to make, and opening weekend they made... wait for it... wait for it.... $18M

Holy shit. If memory serves, 60% - 70% of the entire revenue stream of a movie is usually made in the first 3 weeks - 4 weeks.

This looks like its going to be a huge bomb.

Anyone seen it?

What is your take?

Me? I'm waiting for it to come out on HBO.

But surely Will Ferrell's mere presence is a guarantee of a quality cinematic experience?

This movie is worse than stupid. I was supposed to laugh at the trailer where he rolls over slowly to escape whatever was chasing him? Only little tiny (under 3) children would laugh at that, if at all.

The fault is not with Ferrell, who did a good job in the movie "Stranger Than Fiction," where he proved he can act. He isn't, of course, Laurence Olivier, but that kind of actor is very rare anyway.

Easily will be the bomb of the summer, I think. Just a disastrous idea from the get go, not just in the film, but in the release date. A pseudo-family comedy (as presented in the commercials) coming out a week after a Pixar movie. A "hard" PG-13 comedy with some faux-crude humor coming out on the same weekend as a legitimately crude, decidedly R-rated comedy. This movie managed to be both things. It's one of the worst release ideas I think I've ever seen...

This is one of those movies where you have to wonder who thought it was a good idea. Just sitting through the trailer was enough to know it wasn't worth sitting through -- though I love that the people in the theater were cheering on the T-Rex. :D

(seriously -- men in lizard suits??? this costs $100 million? Seriously?)

This movie probably won't win any awards though.

G. I. Joe looks like a waste of time and money to me.
...and I bet Michael Bay nearly wet himself when he saw all the explosions in the tiny trailer. Not to mention at the end of the trailer when there are rockets racing towards two people in suits and they leap over and around them...like in the first Transformers.

Here is the thing I just can't figure out about Hollywood.

If you are going to spend $100M dollars on a film like Land of the Lost or GI Joe,

Why can't you take just a small % of that money and I dunno, GIVE IT TO WRITERS TO WRITE DECENT SCRIPTS

Here's an idea. Since the salary for writers are peanuts when compared to the overall costs (especially FX), why not hire a whole gaggle writers, and pit them against each other in a script battle royal cage death match. Then after the battle, take all the good ideas and see who can then come up with the best story/script. You can rinse and repeat this process several times and even if you throw away 95% of the scripts it is still WAY cheaper than the money you are going to lose when your $100M film bombs

I mean, Geez-us, you are spending a $100M on the film, might as well make it a good one.

Land of the Lost and GI Joe are not going to get close to recouping thier costs. At least GI Joe will be able to make up for it in merchandising. As for Land of the Lost, they are screwed. I seriously doubt they will make 75% of their money back.

My friend Jim worked on GI Joe (he built sets) so I'm going to see it if only for support. But dude, that's NOT the GI Joe I grew up with. WTF is that?

As for writing... I mentioned that with T4 and Wolverine. If only they would spend another $2M of those $100M budgets on the screenplays instead of more explosions and Hugh Jackman's pecs, they would have had better movies and box office takes. These people never learned.

These people never learned.I agree but a large part of the problem is the whole Hollywood scriptwriting/storyforming process. It's sometimes a chaotic, group-driven process.

The script will be written, then execs and producers and actors will all give their input and want changes and the script is continually rewritten, often going through many writers.

Often, the results aren't pretty. But the movie business is an industry riddled with super-large egos. And anybody who can have a say, usually demands to have it and the place where they do is the script.

He's one of those actors that grows on you... like a fungus.

I used to hate him and his style of humor, but then after watching Anchor Man, I developed a sort of 'taste' for him. *tries to ignore how gay that sounds.*:e2smack:

Anyways, he has a few hilarious movies out there. But I can see how some would not find him funny, I was one of those once upon a time.

Yeah, their movies follow the same type of comedy. Seeing them in a legit serious role is such a relief. I have much more respect for them after seeing those types of movies. I will gladly see any Will Ferrell or Jim Carrey movie in a serious role.

Favorite movie of Jim Carrey is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Incredible movie. You either hate it or love it. The Truman Show is second on my list for him.

I guess the serious roles tend to have a better story, which is what I look for. Don't get me wrong, I love comedy, but after a while I need a change from the same old, same old.

I don't know if we'll see it or not. When we lived in AK, we went to the movies every weekend, sometimes twice. There wasn't much else for us to do.

Now, however, we rarely see movies in theaters. Not that many are worth the time and money.

We likely won't even see LotL even on Showtime/HBO.

I saw Land of the Lost last night.

Its primary flaw was that the writers wanted a raunchy sex comedy, and the producers wanted a family kid-friendly movie.

What we're left with is that vague middle-ground where half of the jokes stopped being funny the week after puberty ended.

If you're going to be sexy and funny, then give us sex too -- Wedding Crashers, 40-Year-Old Virgin, etc.

If you're not going to give us the sex, then at least appeal to the audience you're pulling ratings for and cut the toilet humor too.

There were some very cute scenes in it. But they were very disjointed, the plot twist was obvious the second it was introduced, and overall, it was a disappointing film: disappointing in that it could have been hellabetter, even given the lamish material it was based on.

So you found them funny before, but not after they tried to do the serious route? Okay, I accept that. But I do disagree with you.

I liked Carrey in Truman, but not so much in 123.

The problem is, Will Ferrell acts the same way in every one of his comedy. Whether he's playing Ron Burgundy or whatever, he always act the same way. That's really weird considering he could play so many different characters (as he did in SNL). And when he IS playing someone else such as in Stranger than Fiction, he's actually not bad. So I don't know why he's doing the same schtick over and over. It's time to reinvent himself and his comedies or abandon that altogether and do drama instead (like Tom Hanks did).

I was watching SNL the other night and Tom Hanks was on and I forgot how funny he is as a comedian, or that he was a comedian before becoming an Oscar-winning dramatic actor.

Looks like LotL is going to join the elite group of big budget stink bombs such as Waterworld. It made just $9 million this weekend on more than 3000 screens. At a budget of about $150M, it is a bona fide disaster. Yes, the Love Guru (a Raspberry winner) bombed, too, but that film did not have such a high budget.

I honestly think it might be a confidence thing. Really. Because he knows people come watch his movies (until now, that is) when he acts goofy. And the one time he doesn't (Stranger than Fiction), nobody goes to see him. Which is sad, because Stranger than Fiction is the second best movie he's done, the first being Anchorman.

It is my personal belief that Comedy is the hardest artform when it comes to acting. And that comedic actors are so undervalued just because they are funny and the stigma that comedy just isn't serious or real acting.

The majority of comedic actors can cross over and do/learn drama. The same is not true for drama actors. Without being spoonfed a funny script, they would be lost. OTOH comedic actors who are spoonfed a normal script and it is their job to transform a completely bland line into laughs. That is pure talent.

IMHO, this is what an agent is for. A really good agent should be able to direct your career in such a way as to grow you for the long run. IMHO, it is a cheap way out to only stick with 'what works'. Big deal, any donkey can do that. Whereas a real professional is not only able to see what works, but can anticipate what can and will work.

Look at Will Smith. How easy would he have been to type cast into the hip black cool cat like he was on the Fresh Prince. But he worked his ass off and now he can pretty much do no wrong.

Of course, not everyone can have that range or be at the pinnacle like Johnny Depp. But at the very least, a decent agent should be able to keep you from being a cookie cutter version of yourself.

And when you have a Talent like Will Ferrel, there is no excuse for him to get a dog shit script. Seriously, that is an unforgiveable sin and his Agent should be shot.

Yup. Will Ferrell needs Will Smith's or Tom Hanks' agent.

Rumor has it that the A-bomb of the summer is GI joe. Supposedly after seeing how godawful the movie was during a test screening paramount shit canned the director. I don't know if this is true or not, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Yeah not surprising. I knew it was going to fail.

I have heard that it isn't worth paying to watch. Something to do with it being extremely stupid...

I still refuse to watch it, but two of my friends have found it hilarious.
They have a one-track sense of humor though.
All of the repeated jokes are hilarious to them. They're boring for me.
