  1. Part Two of the Uslan interview is now up, in which he talks about "getting" the Constantine character, about which movie needs to be made, and how Michael Keaton is the reason we got Keanu. http://www.superherohype.com/news/featuresnews.php?id=3388 <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Tears is Michael Uslan? It would explain alot
  2. I'm not going to give my review here because that's not why i'm here. i'm here to blowholes in the hypocrisy of the people who made this film. And the way they are lying about certain things. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> i didnt say that you should write your opinion :) i just told you why i wrote before that i think people who ive 1 star ratings dont really bother me. and sure, maybe theyre lying but they did a hard work with the film, regardless of the changes so i respect them. respect is really a thing what lacks nowadays. and knowledge. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> It does bother you, that's why you gave such a strong reaction. As for my review, I decided not to give one because I choose not to. It's not why i'm writting thease things If you want to make this a Keanu crusade because you like him, than that’s up to you( i met him and he was really sweet). I’m just trying to give facts where all I see is bull@#%.

  4. these are the charts of amazon.com. and agreeing on something means nothing for me. because it works like this: you hated it, you agree with the haters. you loved it you agree with the lovers. so: no change. but, i dont care about other ones opinion anymore. everyone likes otherwise things, everyone wnats to see different thigns and thinks different in everything, so who cares. and that they didnt have a clue whats hellblazer about, what says that of the film or the one star rating? i really dont understand your points. but maybe im just dumb. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> [/quot Actually, if you read what I was writing, you would have notice that I’m talking about imdb, not amazon. Amazon has my points about the film right there in front of you because a good majority of the one star reviews are from people who did not know that this film was based on a comic book. The biggest complaint about it was the acting of Keanu Reeves and the screenplay. Now I know that there are fans out there that disapproved of the film and wrote a review but their reviews a small compared to the ones from the ones from those who had no clue about the comic book. Notice that i did not insult you, so don't call yourself dumb. You just have a diffent view on what is going on.
  5. Uslan is trying to save face. Notice (if you read the interview) that he does not mention the bad reaction the movie received after it was released. He only continues to mention the fifteen-minute clip from a year ago that he felt gave a good impression of the movie. Now also look at the quote that he made that the editor from Vertigo would have disapproved of Constantine if she felt there was something wrong for the film (I’m paraphrasing here so bear with me) Now who really owns Vertigo? Or not to mention DC comics in general? If she had a grievance with the film, she would have been fired out right. You might call that extreme but it happens everyday in corporate America, especially if a studio is trying desperately to try to build the next franchise. Notice also that he is trying to lump the first Batman movie and its casting of Michel Keaton as Batman as a source of how people were reacting to Keanu’s casting as John Constantine. Now if you are old enough to remember the whole Batman media bliss of the first movie, you would remember that Keaton proved everybody wrong and was considered the best Batman of the first four films (that was int’l Bale came in and made Batman his own with Batman Begins). What you are seeing ladies and gentlemen is studio hype and a way of trying to save face. The sequel is not going to happen. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> i give you right until the last sentence. they cant say anything bad because theyre involved. but why didnt he say anything good of swampthing or catwoman? back to the last sentence: you and i cant know. the money is a proof for that it could happen, the bad word of mouth in america that it doesnt. altough when its so bad, why do i see user ratings between 60-70/ a B in almost every site on the web? lets see. we shouldnt say anything that anyone cant know who isnt in the dccomics/warnerbros family involved at this moment. when there is a sequel, there is, when not, then not. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> The movie did not make that much money and if you are going by the user ratings for this film, notice that the majority of the user reviews are very negative. On IMdb.com, on amazon.com, on Yahoo.com, you get the what i'm saying. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> on imdb it has 6.4. on yahoo it has a B. so the majority cant be too negative, thats mathematically impossible. but yeah, it has 2,5 stars out of 5 on amazon, i know. but 71% on rottentomatoes. and so on. it is not bad, just look around. and it made good money i think, more than sin city. the problem is just that the costs were high :) but the dvd-sells are well, maybe that helps. but i dont want to say anything inproper, so i say again: lets see. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Well, on imdb, you can vote multiple times so that rating does not count. It takes more effort to write a review than to vote on a rating and the majority of the reviews on imdb are very negative. As for Sin City, it cost less to make that movie but it brought in a huge profit for the studio plus there is a huge cry for a sequel for that film. Is there a cry for a Constantine sequel? no. The dvd sales for Constantine have been very good for the first week but it droped hard on the second. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> there dont has to be a cry for sin city 2, because there will be :) and didnt i say that constantine was expensive? i dont want to decide if theres a cry for a sequel, i know that i would want to see one. and how do you now that dvd sales dropped hard? no site i know shows the actual places. but if its really like this, well, ok. but it made very good in germany, austria and the uk. after being almost two months released in austrai and germany its still on the boards, and being released for almost one month its also still on the boards in the uk. so again (hmpf): lets see! (imdb reviews, constantine: 780 comments in total. loved it (more than 6.4): 426 comments. hated it (less than 6,4): 319 comments. wheres the majority here? btw,the most hated it comments had 1 star rating, what is just plainly dumb. i personally think that there very few films who deserve a rating below 4. do you think constantine was so bad? i dont think so. these are for me just not overthinked hate-comments. cuz like i said, thats dumb! especially when even hellblazer fans dont give votes under 5. and when i saw really bad films; constantine had good things in it) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Majority because more people agree with the negative reviews than the positive. Look at the feedback of each review giving. BTW the movie does deserve the one star rating in my opinion. If you read the reviews of the movie, a good number of the one star ratings are from people who don't have a clue on what the comic book is about. BTW, look at the dvd charts, they have the numbers right there, if you want to see them for yourself. XXX did better than Constantine on its first week and that was beyond bad in my opinion. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

  10. It’s not doing that well. It did open at the top spot and the fouth spot with the deluxe Dvd but it did not set the world on fire like Tears or anyone would like you to believe. For one, it was a slow week for Dvd sales and two, it was the only major release that was available that week. It needs to break records and stay hot for a sequel to be considered, and it will not. If you notice, word of mouth has still been very bad for this film and it will continue to be, so the studio will not risk itself to produce another sequel. As for the whole Robocop/Terminator ideology that Tear brought up earlier, Both Robocop and the Terminator had strong word of mouth that brought both of them the acclaimed they deserved and both of them were re-release as a result before they were huge on Video, (back then before Dvd). Yet again, Tears is blowing smoke up you know where. The sequel is dead. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> And again you are misquoting me. I said that IF the DVD sales were great than a sequel might happen but if they weren't Lorenzo's prediction would be true - that the audience if the final word on ANY sequel. I am not the one that is reporting DVD grosses here. So please get your facts straight before dragging my name down yet again. Thank you <{POST_SNAPBACK}> So you did not make that Robocop/Terminator remark right Tears? Please, you are so full of it.

  12. Nope. I told everyone here a while ago it was shelved. If the numbers were reversed - 140 mill us, 75 world wide, there would already be a sequel in prepro. Now it's wait and see how the DVd sales goes... it's tracking pretty huge for warners but who knows... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> In other words folks, the sequel is definitely not happening. It would needs to make back twice of the US gross for even Warner Brothers to even think about a sequel to this film and even maybe that might not persuade them and I guarantee it will not do that. It will do very well as a rental but it will fold after two weeks in retail.
  13. Those are not good numbers. No matter how ocean is trying to spin them, it only shows that a sequel is not going to happen by any standard. As for Hellboy and the Punisher, both films were made by a fraction of the budget of Constantine, and the reason they are both going to have sequels is the fact that they both are going to have the same budget the next time around. Constantine is barley going to break even, and a sequel will not happen because of that. :cool:
  14. I'm starting to think that you're, like, the anti-Matadoor - do you have a vested interest in a sequel not being made ? (hang on...you're Keanu's agent...aren't you ?!?) On the wry wit point, James already listed some good examples but two more spring to mind - "I'm John Constantine, and I'm a bastard" and the whole "I lied" bit with the demons in the church. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Nope, I’m just stating a fact that can be check by anybody on this board if they chose to do the legwork to find it. I have been right in how the movie is fairing in the box office so far and I’m pretty confident that the studio will not do a sequel. As for my interest in the sequel, I rather not see a sequel because if they actually cared about making a good movie, they would have not messed up the first time. The “we will do it right next time” argument is a joke and it is a way of talking down to the fans by saying that we did not need to satisfy you guys the first time so we will give you a bone the next. How do I know all of this? I used to work in marketing for a major studio and I do know all the tricks of the trade. It was never their intention to make the movie like the comic book and it was never their intention to please the fans of the comic at all. Regardless of the fact that they extended an olive branch to the fans of the book or the Internet community, they were going to make the movie they wanted to make. You notice how fast they abandon the fans once the script of the film was trashed by the few people who read it. I wanted to like the movie and I am a Keanu fan (I met him and he was really nice to me) but the movie was terrible and it only showed that the studio really did not care about what they were making. As for the anti-Matadoor thing, i have never shoved my opinion down anybody's throat and actually been silent with my opinion of the film intill now.
  15. What's your source? I definitely wouldn't mind seeing a sequel even if the film is terrible because terrible comic-to-film movies haven't really hurt a readership before I don't think. Ah well, I'm going to try and find out some more info about a Constantine sequel at SDCC05. I still wish they'd done Chas some justice. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I know the poor but recently enlightened sucker writing it... As for humor.. you;re right, there was more then I commented on - just didn't feel like the same JC from old. Maybe it was how he was drawn, always hunched over, lighting a cig. Looking ominiously ravaged... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> There will not be a sequel. The movie at best will be a small sucess, not one that will warrant a sequel. Tears is just blowing smoke up your asses again.
