Re: Last Movie You Watched

Looks like despite a higher than predicted Saturday drop, Halloween is a huge success. Horror films seem to be pretty hot right now. They're not making Marvel Event Movie money but they're doing well enough to have studios change their stance on R-ratings and budgets, etc. What makes me curious is w...

A Spider-Gwen movie series could be pretty alright.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

The dichotomy between Venom and First Man is an interesting one. On the one hand, you have Venom, which is a great shitty movie. On the other hand, you have First Man, which is a shitty great movie. It was beautiful and poignant and I never want to see it again. I think the zeitgeist is agains a mov...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

The only people who hate Venom are idiots who think the doings of multibajillion dollar conglomerates are a team sport and people who hate fun.

Oh no the movie about a sarcastic alien slime isn’t serious enough, all is lost

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Halloween (2018) It’s worth a watch. Competently executed, with an excellent balance of humor, gore and suspense. Unlike many slasher films, this movie focuses on the horror of *death* rather than the horror of *suffering* and plays up the boogeyman aspect of Michael Meyers without a bunch of unnece...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

The problem is that it's one mediocre short film (on the order of say, 60-75 minutes, just enough to explore a nifty concept of the character) stretched out into three movies. Sort of like certain other trilogies. Trilogies about stout squat fellows seeking a treasure of some sort.

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...

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...

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.
