    Teaser Trailer

    I'm digging the creepiness of the trailer, while I'm not an ample fan of Radcliffe, all I could think about when watching the teaser was USE YOUR WAND HARRY, I just can't imagine him in any other role that isn't Harry Potter.

    I"m with you Roxy on him...it'll be weird to see him after 8 movies, doing something else.

    Hell, it'll be weird to see ANY of the main child cast do anything else(the older actors I'm used to seeing in other places, lol).

    BUT, I'm a real big fan of Ciaran Hinds, who isn't as well known as he should be IMO.

    At the same time that its going to be weird its going to be awesome seeing him in another role having watched him grow up as Harry Potter.

    New poster:



    The trailer looks pretty decent and this poster is fairly creepy looking as well. As a horror fan I'm naturally looking forward to this, but as I've mentioned previously in the thread, it's going to be weird as hell watching Harry Potter in the main role.

    I guess I am different, I don't see him as just Harry Potter. It will be refreshing to see him in a new role though. I can't wait for this to hit DVD so I can check it out.

    I'm capable of looking past his role as Potter as well. I've never been one to typecast actors though, so maybe that's why.

    Re: Horror Movie Discussion

    The Woman In Black has to be one of the most boring horror films I have watched in years. I don't understand why so many people are raving on about the movie when all it contains is a few jump moments and a somewhat ominous atmosphere, the rest was weak, predictable and disappointing. If this is what horror fans are calling "great" nowadays then may god have mercy on the genre and its unsightly future.

    Aww, it sucks? I've mostly only heard bad or average reviews, but I was looking forward to seeing it.

    Oddly enough I just started watching it, so that doesn't inspire any confidence. Thanks a lot. Whichever way I feel about it the review will be up on Thursday.

    Re: Horror Movie Discussion

    Well don't let my thoughts stop/affect you watching it, different strokes for different folks and all that, it just wasn't my cup of tea. The film bored me to death though, its only saving grace was the cute little dog.

    Re: Horror Movie Discussion

    I wasn't expecting great things out of it just because... I mean... its Harry Potter. How is Harry Potter suppposed to scurred of some ghost?

    Re: The Woman in Black (2012)

    This movie suffers from two major problems.

    A) Daniel Radcliffe is Harry Potter

    Spoiler:

    Typecasting can be a bitch for an actor. However, it's just as bad for the viewer when they're unable to be sucked into the story because they can't believe the main character exists, even in those hour and a half. It's tough enough trying to believe a new character of Radcliffe, but it's even harder when there's so many things that reminds me of Harry Potter. Radcliffe's character is still down in the dumps after his wife passed away a few years ago. That's pretty similar to Harry's issues with his deceased parents. Kipps' son never knew his own mother, pretty similar to Harry as well. Early on, Har...err Kipps must go on a train trip to go where he needs to go. That's just like Harry Potter as well. Once there, he has to go to an old house in the middle of nowhere. Once again, similar to Hogwarts. Going up the steps in that large house, he's surrounded by paintings of all sizes. Just like at Hogwarts. There's even a point where Kipps runs into a trio of kids - 2 boys (One redheaded) and a girl. Well ****. I mean hell, Kipps' closest friend in the movie played Aberforth Dumbledore! Throw in a bunch of little mysteries and ghosts that will remind of a lot of Dementors and it becomes really difficult seeing Radcliffe as someone other than Harry. Without being able to believe in Kipps for 90 minutes, you don't care about his character or the entire movie.

    While this has nothing to do with Radcliff's past as Harry Potter, but he's too young for the role of Kipps. Granted, Kipps is supposed to be young, but I don't believe he has a four year old son. Shave all that little five o'clock shadow and Radcliff still looks like a teen. Someone older would have been a better choice, not to mention you wouldn't have the Harry Potter problem.


    B) So very dull

    Spoiler:

    I feel there's two reasons why it was dull. For one, Radcliff's character of Kipps is alone most of the movie. As a result, we're left without any dialogue. There's many ways to make such a movie exciting, but that leads into the other problem. They took a script that is best for an episode of the Twilight Zone or some sort of short and stretched it into ninety minutes. Everything was so slow moving and dull that it became a chore just sitting through this. The script was also a little confusing. Who was the Woman in Black? The child's birth mother or her sister/adopted mother?
