Yup, this movie looks like complete garbage. It seems like every single comedy coming out now days uses the same type of unfunny humor.
I am Ambassador Phantom, from the planet Krankor! I am rapidly approaching your planet... in the warship, which you have just seen. I will arrive tomorrow night at precisely eight o'clock. At that time I shall make my wishes known to you. You will obey them... or die! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

Wow. 

That was about as funny as a skit on Studio 60.  This is a movie that Michael Scott from the Office would declare the Best Movie of 2007.

Also, I confess to just not understanding in the least the appeal of Crispin Glover.  Crispin Glover is one of those people who legitimately seems deranged. So often in movies, he acts like he's not entirely sure how he got there, as if perhaps he just wandered onto the set accidentally, and the crew was too polite to tell him to leave, because he's so weird they thought something might be *wrong* with him. In this sense, he was a pioneer for such latter-day oddballs as Giovanni Ribisi and Jeremy Davies. There's something about watching him in a movie that is really unsettling, like at any point he's just going to turn towards the camera and ninja-chop the director of photography. He unsettles me.

HAHA! That's a genuinely funny post. And I agree - Crispin Glover is a wierdo, but I still love Back to the Future

Yeah, that's pretty much the appeal. Crispin Glover is awesome.

Well, yeah, Back to the Future is a great movie, but have you ever seen him in At Close Range?  He gives that weird kid from Fright Night a run for his money as far as odd performances go.

What, you mean he starred in gay porn too?

My nominee for the worst of 2007 is that godawful "300."

Shudder.
What makes you think it looks so awful? I thought the comic was among Miller's stronger stuff, and the trailer looked, as I believe the term goes, "kinetic"- things were moving quickly, violently, and loudly, but all with a sense of what's actually going on (in other words, without resorting to Bay style cut-cut-cut 'action'.)
Just not a fan of Miller or ultraviolence?

I just hope the generic rock music in the 300 trailer isn't actually from the score. That would completely ruin the movie. I don't mind contemporary music in a period movie in theory, but I've never seen it work in practice.

As for the Simpsons Movie, I'm holding out hope, but I honestly won't mind too much if it sucks just as long as the new Futurama stuff is good. Simpsons has been pulling a Weekend At Bernie's on us for years. It's time to bury Homer, at least for a little while.

Well, Last Temptation of Christ is certainly a period movie, and it's among my favorites of all time, and the music was contemporary. On the other hand, it was largely foreign contemporary music, so that might not count.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid had contemporary music, but not aggressively so.
Does Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure count as a period piece?

Oh, and as for the Simpsons movie: http://www.somethingawful.com/index.php?a=4290 (note: this is a COMEDIC ARTICLE and not real.)

And then there's The Sting, which was set in the 1930s, but featured a Ragtime score from the turn of the century. Hey, whatever works.

The Ben video is cool and his 10 minutes of commentary that he manages to deliver in 2 and 1/2 minutes on the DVD is pretty good too. But as weird as Ben is I submit his trailer for his EPIC many years in the making movie What is it? which is by the way NSFW:

Dam this thread took awhile to read through, so much new information and subjects that haven't come up on these boards yet  :-[  ;D
300 = I have to admit that I hadn't heard of this but it looks bad... I'll give it a shot still because sin city was so great (Robert Rodriguez & tarrentino can do "almost" no wrong, miller on the other hand?)
The new Simpson's movie will be great (despite what somethingawful thinks)
- also i heard mention of "new" futurama, I've yet to here anything beyond net rumours, is there something I'm missing, is this official yet?
Uwe Bowe movie... (sigh) ... words fail to describe this... Wow! Really, that got made?!
Crispin Glover - never knew he acted beyond back to the future, although I have been meaning to see Willard for other reasons (Glen Morgan director / writer)
and finally there's the matter of "Epic Movie" - these guys make Scary Movie look classy. The only thing that save Date Movie was its funny redemptive 'critic riff commentary' dvd bonus... obviously they didn't heed the advice of their critics  >:( 
"Epic Movie" = worst movie of 2007

Miller isn't directing.  It's Zach Snyder, who did the rather snazzy remake of Dawn of the Dead.

I'm not really sure about 300.  Sure, the trailer looks pretty in a music video kind of way, but I'm worried that it'll be like Sin City: A whole lot of style and virtually no substance.

At least you admit it had style  ;)
saw Sin City in stadium seating theater and the visual/audio blew me away... most of you here are probably used to stadium theaters but i'm from a small town with only 18 screens/1 theater so to see this film in a big city theater was amazing.

It is official, but it's still a little cloudy as to whether it will be new episodes, straight-to-video feature lengths movies, both, or what. Futurama is definitely coming back in some form, though. WOO-HOO!
