    Four Lions the almost-masterpiece-Wow, high praise, but I think this movie might be a bit too “now.”

  • Jose

    That first image there looks cool, then the one with the captain looks downright creepy! If that’s how the humans will look like then I’ll probably not watch the movie anymore, Oh who am I kidding it’s written by Edgar Wright, of course I’ll watch.

  • Angel E.

    Hmm, The King’s Speech dominating the BAFTA’s, I wonder why? (sarcasm)

  • Jose

    Don’t knock it till you try it Angel.
    You have yet to see if it lives up to the buzz (I’m hoping it does) but remember that last year’s big winner at the BAFTA’s was the Hurt Locker

  • I’m not a big fan of mo-cap filmmaking personally. It gets to a point where you wonder if since they’re trying so hard to make animation look like real actors, why don’t they just use real actors.
