Super Hadouken's Worst Films of 2010

6. Jonah Hex
- This film was simply boring to me. It was built up to be this action packed comic book film and it just fell on its face. I wanted to like this film, I really did but it just wasn't that good

5. Takers
- This film was extremely hyped up. Everybody I know loved this movie and built it up to be something great when in all actuality it was a film filled with shaky, unfocused camera work, spotty dialogue and a cliche story

4. Clash of the Titans

- I thought this film was gonna be really cool before it came out.. I was sadly disappointed. I can't really explain what went wrong with this one. It was just disappointing. One of the things that really stood out for me was the crappy CGI and once you mess that up, you've lost me.

3. Ong Bak 3

- *sighs* I had high hopes for this film. And I mean high! Ong bak 2 was a masterpiece! And I thought this would be no different... again I was wrong. They downgraded this franchise. The violent Tony Jaa fighting sequences were rare, the story was long and drawn out and the ending was so stupid! Although if this wasn't a follow up of Ong Bak 2, it would've been pretty decent

2. Harry Potter 7

- This film probably would not have been on this list if I cared about this franchise. But since I don't its on here. While watching this film, I was counting the minutes. Seriously counting the minutes until it was over. The action sequences were ok at best but overall they were lame and the story was long-winded and boring. I feel like this film was made only for the hardcore fans and I am not one of them

1. The Last Airbender

- When I think of the expectations I had for this film, it makes me wanna cry now. I was so hype for this!! I followed it from casting all the way to the first teaser trailer. This was finally gonna redeem M. Night's reputation. This was gonna be one of the year's best films... Yea hell no! This movie was the definition of disappointing. It was very drawn out and the action sequences were redundant. I was literally sitting in the theater reassuring myself that it was gonna get better, even into the last 20 minutes. That's how much faith I had in this film. M. Night Shymalan will make a come back, just not with this garbage. Sorry M. Night.

David Fincher Explains the Henley Royal Regatta Tilt-Shift Scene from "The Social Network"

Fincher says:

The Henley Royal Regatta were incredibly good to us and they allowed us to actually shoot the race at Henley. I had no idea how huge the Henley Royal Regatta was. I’d only seen photographs and a lot of them are telephoto so you don’t get the idea of this mile-and-a-half of grandstands and corporate sponsors. I mean, it's a huge thing and we originally thought we would shoot a bunch of inserts on the Charles [River] and then use that footage to intercut with wide shots we'd shot at Henley.

The trick of this scene, and the thing that made it so difficult was, it's not like the fight in Rocky where it's been talked about forever and it's importance has been established and you know what it means to the Winklevosses. You get dropped into the middle of this race, and I joked with Aaron [Sorkin] about it a lot, 'How do I make people care about whether or not these guys win or lose a race that we don't know where it is, we don't know what it means?' And he was like, 'Well that's your problem.' [laughing]

He was using it as a way of saying, 'You miss by that much.' Then to have the Winklevosses miss by that much with Mark Zuckerberg, they missed by that much with Larry Summers, they're missing by that much at Henley and it's the final straw.

But it is a tricky thing to design a sequence around missing by that much when you literally get dropped into the middle of it. You really don't know where you are, it requires a subtitle to tell you you're now in Henley for the Henley Royal Regatta, which you probably don't know is the Super Bowl of boat racing.

So this was one of those sequences where the only time we could shoot it was July 4, 2010. It was literally five to six weeks before we had to finish the movie. The movie had to be done so we could get it in theaters, and they were incredibly helpful to us and made it all possible.

One of the reasons it was done in this faux, swing and tilt– tilting lens board style was because all of the close-ups of the Winklevosses and the Dutch rowing were done in Eaton on a man made lake that doesn’t look anything like Henley. Doesn’t have any– just has green grass, but we would shoot the close-ups of all the people and then we had to matte in still photographs that we’d shot at Henley.

Sundance 2011: First Photos and Plot from "The Ledge"


Atop a high-rise building, Gavin, a young hotel manager, is about to end his life. Hollis, a detective whose own world has just been turned upside down, is dispatched to the scene. As Hollis tries to persuade Gavin not to jump, each man begins to open up about his past, and we discover that neither of them is convinced that his life is worth living.

In his Sundance debut, director/screenwriter Matthew Chapman has crafted an intense thriller filled with soulful inspiration. While the film examines the complex notion of what drives us as people, strong performances and immersive characters keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The Ledge is a nuanced character study of love, faith, and convictions that will leave you with a question . . . How far are you willing to go for what you believe in?

Sundance 2011: Trailer, Plot and Photos for "Mad Bastard"

Mad Bastards Trailer for Sydney Festival from Pollen Digital on Vimeo.


TJ is a mad bastard, and his estranged 13-year-old son Bullet is on the fast track to becoming one, too. After being turned away from his mother’s house, TJ sets off across the country to the Kimberly region of northwestern Australia to make things right with his son. Grandpa Tex has lived a tough life, and now, as a local cop, he wants to change things for the men in his community. Crosscutting between three generations, Mad Bastards is a raw look at the journey to becoming a man and the personal transformation one must make. Developed with local Aboriginal communities and fueled by a local cast, Mad Bastards draws from the rich tradition of storytelling inherent in Indigenous life. Using music from legendary Broome musicians the Pigram Brothers, writer/director Brendan Fletcher poetically fuses the harsh realities of violence, healing, and family.
