View Full Version : Guillermo Del Toro is officially my hero

Within two days I find out two great things. Starting with the lesser of two miracles, Del Toro is now making a Lovecraftian horror game with THQ. (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/103876-Guillermo-del-Toro-Making-a-Horror-Game) Hell yeah, maybe he can get the good horror games flowing again like they once did.

Now on to the best news: Del Toro is making a film adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness. (http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1648996/20100929/story.jhtml). And to boot, he might get Ron Perlman in it. I honestly can't think of a single better man to handle the making of a Lovecraft movie than Del Toro. I wish they didn't make it in 3d, but if it must be so and if it is done well, I won't care.



Sorry about that, I had to geek out for a little bit there. What does everyone else think of this fantastical news?

A a movie closer to the original Herbert West: Reanimator or a Call of Cthulhu flick would be cool. But hey, I'll take any Lovecraft I can get

At The Mountains of Madness was a good story, but it wouldn't translate too well into a movie. The only part I can think of that would be exciting is the last parts, going into the ancient ruins. It was more just a detailed look at Lovecraft's entire mythos than anything else.

I'm guessing i'm the only one here who is happy for THQ , hard at word at trying to make itself into a well respected company since the past couple of years ...

And i'm also guessing i'm the only one in here who thought that Pan's Labyrinth was utterly stupid ...
Nicely made it was , but what a stupid ***** that girl is ...

Exactly.

Grievous, you'll have to elaborate on that one.

No , elaborate ? no , no no no no no , that is torture , NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! ...

The fairy dudes tells that spanish lil brat Not To Touch The Cake ... At Least Three Times In A Row ...

Then the lil girl takes a cake , wakes up the lord of the manor , girl starts screaming , crying , being that lil victim , Stupid ! What the **** did the fairy bastards told you ?! Don't touch the food ! and what do you do ? you touch it ! ... and we're supposed to feel sorry for you ? ...

There's a huge difference between people making decisions in life that turns up to be stupid and ******* things up for years to come And people who are just plain stupid , does stupid things , and expect to be well treated and protected allwhile blaming the world for just being mean to them ...

At the end , supposedly we're suppose to be happy that the girl bites the bullet ...
But then No , by dying , she gains entrance to the elysian kingdom , gets to live on forever with her mama , papa , and that elegantly dressed valet with horns on his head (seriously , that dude was ace , but i pity he has to keep an eye out for that girl) ...
So , in death , she wins ... her stupidity gives her victory ... of which she wasn't even aware of ...

Meanwhile there was her mother , who just had to be so stupid herself that she had to live with such a cruel and evil man (who turned out to be the only person in this film who isn't stupid) ... and then the mother dies , there was a baby that gets fetched by the local guerilla warriors with that uptight arrogant maid , and the oh-so-evil-man-who-cuts-himself-while-shaving bites it too in the end , why ? ... because he was overrun by stupid people , makes sense , but this stupidity isn't what the maker of this film intended to show , it's a stupidity that took form by accident ... so , stupid film ...

Del Toro knows how to handle a camera , agreed ...
But Pan's Labyrinth ? ... it's one of those stupidity you just can't get rid of your mind ...


And also all these spanish speaking people in the film industry haven't acted once in a movie that isn't stupid in my book , which actually makes the french look good , but that's another story ...


You mean pull nonsense out his ass?

I'm guessing my butt hurts now ...

Nice going, monkey, you've just RROD'd my eyes with that big blue thing up there. I'll just go with 'you're wrong' and leave it at that.

GrievousOdyssey
30th Sep 2010, 14:58
Well how am i suppose to not be stupid , if stupid people would not change my stupid thoughts on a presummably stupid situation ? ...

You can't just leave it at that if you're going to complain about it , that makes you stupid ...

PS: also , i hereby proclaim this as the 'stupid' thread , you're now all tasked to use the word 'stupid' and its derrivatives as many times as possible in one post ...
Note that repeating the word one after another is a fail , and you'll be disqualified ...

Enough with this stupidity! Everybody! Grab some feces and throw it, full force, at the stupid monkey over there called 'Grievous'.

It's nice to know that there's a monkey in this forum who shares the same name as i ...

now just have to find lil stupid monkey before everyone starts targeting more due to a lack of a better option ...

Geez Grievous you're harsh, the poor girl was hungry and only a child. Anyway I don't know if it was ever confirmed, but I thought that the good/evil juxtaposition of the characters was due to us viewing the story from the girl's perspective, and the fantasy world an escapism from the cruelty of war.

War sucks , life sucks , damn this world sucks ! ...

And damned if i give girl candies , damned if i don't treat them nice , what the **** ? ...

PS: this is the official "stupid day" as well as the "damned if you do damned if you don't day" ... ... actually both can be interpreted as the same thing ...

Nah actually this train has already derailed to the bottom of the hill , sir ...

She was hungry because she missed her dinner as far as I remember...besides the food was obviously enhanced so it would appear/taste more appealing.

Seriously, you have a right not to like the film but calling it stupid is a little overboard I think.

GrievousOdyssey
30th Sep 2010, 16:21
Why do i get this impression that the fact of the day is 'Grievous is stupid' ? ...

Hey that should have been an option in my new poll ...
Damn i'm so stupid i didn't thought of it first ! ...

Edit: but then i read on wikipedia that , despite knowing that she disobeyed his orders , the faun actually gives her one more chance ...
so there was no consequence in disobeying the strict orders ...
the fairies died ... but girl gets one more chance ... and gets into the elysian kingdom ...
Her stupidity ... didn't changed a thing ... like a free pass ...
Stupid ...

Edit , the return : And before someone gets all excited again i did saw this stu ... film ... years ago ...
just checked on wikipedia to see if i didn't missed out anything ...

I think thats Benicio Del Toro, unless he directed that movie.

I know. I'm paying the king homage. If we ever talk about the Del Toros... My boy Benicio needs to be present. He is, after all, the king.

I honestly can't watch Benicio Del Toro in any movie without imagining him saying all his lines as though he were still Fred Fenster.

Funny how i mentionned Saints Row , because Del Toro's trilogy is being made by Volition , those who made Saints Row and Red Faction ...

The first game , InSANE , has got itself a teaser , and a 'infamous' 2013 release date ... (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=280139)

Apparently , the game will make players 'question their morality' ... (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=280176)

Also , a movie adaptation is already being thought about ... (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=280255)

I can't believe i'm actually giving a **** to this project ...

Or am I ? ...

Brackstone17
14th Dec 2010, 03:10
It's ridiculous that they have a trilogy planned already if you ask me. Also a movie adaptation sort of ruins the point of having a film maker create a game, since it will just end up as a film in the end. Oh well, I'm still hoping it turns out nicely.

That's pretty deep for a mere character that came out of the mirror ...

PANCAAAAAAAKES !!!! ...

*jumps out in slow motion* ...

(and thus the truth was uncovered , Grievous' real name was none other than Sven Johansen , for only a Swede would show such excitement over a mere pancake ...
Upon learning this fact , the whole world erupted into its true form , the elysian landscape ... for the identity of Grievous was of everyone's concern , the real nature of such an odd looking creature was undoubtedly hiding all secrets to the universe ...
there is now peace on earth , thanks to the pancake , and the uncontestable fact that Sven and all the Swedes loves pancakes) ...

The trilogy will take from eight to ten years in the making ...
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=280700

Sounds fair ... unless each game only lasts for a couple of hours , then we might scream ...

Unless , again , these couple of hours turns out to be the greatest in video game history ... ... ... but i doubt it ...
