This is the trailer for the third Godzilla anime.

I suggest watching it with auto-translated subtitles, because that is far more entertaining than the actual movie will be.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Wrinkle In Time did it commercials but there was actually a short message from the director before the film itself, in the theater, where the director jerked of the movie for being so good and an achievement and shit, when it was actually boredering on what I call aggressively terrible. Insert oblig...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

First Man It’s the most artistically competent movie about the space race I’ve ever seen, but it’s a visit to MoMA, not a theme park. It doesn’t have the bombastic reverence or men’s adventure feel of say, Apollo 13 . It’s less a story of the triumph of human ingenuity and more a story of the cost ...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

I don’t know what I find more tiresome, these remakes or Disney’s marketing campaigns for movies like *Wrinkle* or the upcoming Nutcracker movie where they have the director or a star sit down and speak directly into the camera about how ~important~ the movie is and how much I’m going to like it and...

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

It’s not that good.

That’s the best I can say about it. It reaches in the directions of all these camp classics but it can’t get there.

It’s honestly too upbeat to compare it to any Batman movie. There is no rainy brooding.

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

When you say horror comedy are you talking sharp Gremlins black comedy that nails it or B movie so good it bad horror? It's not as good as Gremlins, but that's not a bad comparison. The horror is fairly toned down, but some scenes are genuinely disturbing, PG-13 or not. As I said above, the main kn...

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

I saw Venom this morning. It’s fucking hilarious. I wanted a horror comedy about a musclebound doofus and an alien slime trying to be a superhero and that’s exactly what I got. My main complaint is that it spends too long -almost half the run time- on the setup part, and this shortchanges the symbio...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Hollywood has never come up with original ideas. If you look at any list of the "best films ever made", regardless of the source or critic, almost all of them are adaptations of books, biopics about real people, remakes of other movies, or based on traditional stories or the Bible or whate...

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

Also hopefully Marvel will take a page from their own successes and focus on un/underused X-Men characters.

I'd like to see Mister Sinister in the movies, that'd be fun.

If you haven't seen Deadpool 2 you're missing out on the best performance of Brad Pitt's career.

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

The ID4 sequel was an atrocity. It should be against the Geneva convention. It has no redeeming qualities and it reminded me that Reese Witherspoon has an adult child who is a professional actress, causing me to leave the theater with a temporary ennui.

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

There’s so much else to exploit as part of the Fox deal it’s crazy. Since our corporate overlords don’t care what sets think and this happens if it destroys culture or not, I hope we finally get some nice clean releases of the unmolested Star Wars films. Some theatrical rereleases would be nice too....

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

I doubt that Disney will reboot X-Men straight into the MCU. More likely they’ll do it in ten years time as part of a great multiversal mash up that lets them recast seasoned characters as well as develop new ones. If I had to guess there will be a separate rebooted Disney X-Verse and whether it end...
