Re: Last Movie You Watched

ARRIVAL did perfectly fine in theaters. Intelligent cinema tends to burn bright but not long in public consciousness. We're too easily distracted. But ARRIVAL played to sold out theaters in my neighborhood for two weeks. It's also a film MADE for the big screen & if it had come out as a Netflix ...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

160 people disappeared. Colonial Marines didn't believe the Xenomorph story. In a realistic scenario the possibilities of a viral infection is the number one probability. It was dumb to not use breathing gear in Aliens but everyone's okay with that because there is zero infection in the film. If cha...

Re: Universal Monsters shared universe films

Johnny Depp's continual erasure of himself as an actor into just being a hack who wears silly hats is now complete. If he's playing the Invisible Man he'll probably just be a silly hat.

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

Company didn't know the Aliens took over the colony. They ASSUMED because of Ripley's story. At that point WY has not yet had any physical evidence of the Xenomorph. They sent Burke with the Marines to verify. Either way, whether the Marines take Ripley's story as fact - they don't - those guys goin...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

Note on the Helmets: The Colonial Marines in ALIENS are going to a colony where over 160 people mysteriously disappeared. They have zero idea what caused this. It could have very well been a viral outbreak. They go charging in there without any protective breathing gear or helmet whatsoever. If ther...

Re: So who here is into Samurai Jack?

Could have used more Aku.

But I would have said the same thing if the final season was 10 episodes of nothing BUT Aku.
I loved that he used the old credit sequence.

Re: Terminator - Genisys (2015)

I'm pretty sure whatever is planned next is going to be a reboot. Making it the series third - or is it fourth? - reboot in a row. So Pops & his T-1000 powers won't be part of it.

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

Misato's personality as a commander makes sense for me. I've worked with a lot of leaders & when they're on the job they're strictly business but at home they greatly decompress however possible. Really the only flaw I can find in the representation of Misato as NERV Tactical Operations Officer ...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Ken Watanabe is returning though. Variety reported that back in March. Pretty sure he's contractually signed up for three films which would make sense since 'Godzilla Vs. Kong' will likely be entering into production around the time 'Godzilla: King of Monsters' wraps. I expect Sally Hawkins will joi...

Re: [LAEM] Would an american Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

I've watched that movie a good half dozen times (loved it & actually got to do some uncredited PA work with the costume crew on it for two days) & while there was some heavy petting between the two I don't recall any full on nude shots of her or anything that would be over the line objection...

Re: So who here is into Samurai Jack?

Solid final season. I do agree it lost something special in the final act. Probably once Jack became Samurai Jack again oddly enough. Still, solid storytelling & visual filmmaking throughout. Shame Genndy Tartakovsky doesn't have the clout to just continue doing his own thing & has to go bac...

Re: [LAEM] Would an american Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

I know where you're coming talking from about the kids ages BUT the difference is in who carries the narrative in the medium. It's not that there are no child actors who can't do the material*, it's the practicalities of selling it as a THEATRICAL feature & getting people to go to the theater. T...

A live action Eva movie could work.... but it wouldn't be Eva. It wouldn't be hard to get the superficials right. With the appropriate sized budget the Evangelions would look amazing, the Angels terrifying, Tokyo-3 would come alive & NERV headquarters would come across as a real location. It's t...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Hayao Miyazaki is officially about to go into production on his 6th FINAL film. Looking like a 2020 release. Due to his age I'm guessing this could actually be his FINAL final film but you never know. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-05-19/hayao-miyazaki-final-film-begins-3-year-production-...

Best since Aliens. And I love Alien3 & Resurrection. But if you go into the movie expecting Aliens you'll be disappointed. It's a curious & wonderfully fresh new vision from a filmmaker while still playing around in the sandbox he originally created. And it takes risks that I loved. . And li...

I mean all you guys saying ALIEN: COVENANT is not good are phenomenally wrong but everyone is entitled to their opinion. I'll take Ridley Scott's wild & weird pure sci-fi epics over tired by-the-numbers Marvel movies any day of the week. The flute scene between David & Walter wonderfully thr...
