Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

How does that make it impossible? What assumption is there to have that David killed off ALL the Engineers? For a species that we see has a history of sending their people off across the galaxy seeding other planets it seems presumptuous to assume ALL the Engineers are in that one city at that exac...

Re: What would you change about cinema/film history?

Lol at the ban joke. I'd be so bummed if that happened so hopefully not. Actually, now that you mention Del Toro I'll add one more change: The script & vision was not at all truthful to real H.P. Lovecraft - it's not the tentacles that make his work chilling - but I would have loved to see Guill...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

SUPER excited for Luc Besson's Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets. Already prepared to be crushed when it massively flops due to modern audiences having little to no interest in non-franchise/non-safe big budget cinema.

Star Wars would end at one film.
That's it.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

MARVEL just announced Spider-Man: Homecoming will be retitled Iron Man & Some Brat in a Red Suit . Nah. Movie looks fine in new trailers. Tying everything into the greater Avengers universe will let people overlook the cookie cutter factory nature of it all but it should be superior to the unfoc...

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...
