Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot.

Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, and Hugo Weaving also stars.

I like the cast, I love the story, but alas, despite the fact that Rick Baker was the effects coordinator,

(And, was routinely shunned & ignored upon numerous requests to utilize practicle make-up effects similar to those he implemented while working on An American Werewolf In London.) this looks like a complete CGI-laden crap-fest.

Not to mention, the director isn’t exactly what I’d call subtle or impressive.

The CGI does get to me, but the prospect of having Del Toro as Talbot is nothing but perfect. I love the fact that they are branching the story unlike all the remakes today. It seems so raw and intense. I love the clips of him being tortured in ice water, etc, and when he yells "I will kill all of you."

Del Toro needs more respect from audiences and he is getting it in his roles. Che Guevara, Lawrence Talbot/Wolfman, and soon Moe Howard/Three Stooges. Some legendary roles.

The Three Stooges are really gonna happen?

I would’ve put 21 Grams in that list, he doesn’t have the biggest role but he carries it perfectly.



The Wolfman’s trailer seemed ok to me. Although I’m not as familiar as you are with Laurence Talbot’s story.

I’m a true CGI hater but it didn’t look out of place in the trailer. I couldn’t explain why but I didn’t come as chocking as it is in the Avatar trailer for example.

Prob because of the great actors in it maybe? ;)

But I don't know any more about Talbot than the next person if they watched the Wolfman alot. :)

I didn't include 21 grams, just because I was naming the "Iconic" characters he has/will do in the 3 year span.

I’ll try to keep an open mind about it. After all, we have until February now.

Stupidass Paramount pushing everything remotely interesting back until

2010… As I said, I really like the cast that they’ve assembled &

The Wolf Man is one of my all-time favorite stories since

childhood, right up there w/ the original Frankenstein.



Mostly, I just pray that Mr. Baker was able to breach the

proceedings w/ some degree of his genius.



I’m gonna go watch Dog Day Afternoon right now &

An American Werewolf In Lodon later on tonight,

maybe starting around 9:30/10 o’clock, as a

matter of fact. All this talkin’ 'bout these

Wolf Men got me in the mood. ;D

Yeah I heard Shutter Island is pushed back until Feb as well. I wonder why? That isn’t a good month for a Oscar Hopeful.
