    Re: The A-Team Movie

    I saw the stills a while back and I was shocked at how much Liam Neeson looks like Peppard! Bradley Cooper is adorable - perfect casting

    ETA: Just watched the trailer and it looks good! Thanks for the link!

    Ah..Liam Neeson does a great job as Hannibal. The trailer looked interesting enough to go see.

    Re: The A-Team Movie

    So is anyone planning to see this one when it is released? At this point I'm thinking I will wait for DVD.

    I read this earlier today:
    Mr. T, whose real name is Laurence Tureaud, was in attendance at the movie's Los Angeles premiere, where he admitted his fears were confirmed. "It was too graphic for me," he said. "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex, but when we did it no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in any more."
    I have to agree that this was one of the hallmarks of the TV show. My biggest worry was that this film would lose the cheesy, tongue-in-cheek qualities that made the show so much fun. After reading this I'm afraid it has, but I will certainly wait to hear some first-hand opinions.

    Yes, indeed, where IS Krom on this?

    This morning on the radio I already heard that there is a really good buzz about this movie. The same critic basically panned everything I have already seen in the last 2 months so it will be interesting to see if it lives up to the hype.

    Just saw it. I loved it. It was funny. It was smart. It made me laugh. The casting was perfect.

    The two top movies of 2010 so far are "How To Train Your Dragon" and "The A-Team".

    Just got home from seeing the movie. Totally agree with Bearcata. Fun, action, great casting.

    And for those of you who were fans of the TV series, look for the original "Face" and "Mad Dog" in cameo roles in the movie.

    Re: The A-Team Movie

    I saw it today and really enjoyed it. It was a fun, crazy action movie with some humor, just as advertised. After seeing it, I'm a bit perplexed about Mr. T's quote about "plenty of sex"--aside from the implied sex with the General's wife in the opener, the past referenced relationship with Jessica Biel, and the kiss at the end, it was nothing approaching even network TV levels.

    I think Mr. T was comparing it to the network TV of the TV show's day---nothing like the TV of today when the networks have to compete with the sex on the cable channels.... While it wasn't as puritanical as the 50's married couples sleep only in twin beds stuff, compared today it was pretty tame...and apparently the A-Team show was especially so.
