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

I just got back from Glass . I don't expect this movie to have widespread appeal, but it's a fitting conclusion to the Unbreakable/Split/Glass trilogy. It ends on a masterfully executed twist, and it *concludes*. Does it suggest there could be more stories in the same world? Yes, but it's thematical...

Re: Star Trek

The Ghostbusters revival is being directed by Ivan Reitman's son, so there's that at least.

Are you serious about the Hoboken thing? Why is there an effects studio in Hoboken?

Re: Star Trek

I would agree that the charming bombast of II and the expertly craft fin-de-siécle Cold War suspense of VI are at least on equal footing. V would be a sci-fi classic if it did the concept justice instead of looking like William Shatnwr directed it in his backyard from a screen play he scribbled on t...

Re: You Wake Up In The Eva Verse

I didn't think of that. That changes things. I appear exactly where I am in 2016 in the Evaverse: Given how sea levels changed due to Third Impact, I will be dropped in the ocean miles from shore with only a minimal ability to swim, off the Mid-Atlantic coast in January. I'm dead in 3 minutes at mos...

Re: Star Trek

The beat Star Trek films are the ones that are another genre IN SPACE. The bad ones are the navel gazing shit or continuity porn.

Re: You Wake Up In The Eva Verse

Literally anything you say anywhere in the world to anything affiliated with NERV will end with you committing suicide via two shots to the back of the head. I'd spend the remaining roughly nine months of my life in intense meditation in hopes that when the apotheosis comes I will transcend death an...

Re: Star Trek

Shit, mainstreaming Star Wars for a mass audience isn't even working. Design by committee makes it very hard to make something worthwhile in the end. The other problem, which you will note as common to both Star-something franchises, is J. J. Abrams. He's a terrible choice for a franchise movie. I r...

Re: Shane Black & Fred Dekker to make PREDATOR Sequel

Here's the chain of events: The kid is wearing the Predator's mask and gauntlet as a Halloween costume. He goes up to a house to trick or treat, but nobody answers. As he's walking away, this guy steps out onto the balcony. I thought this was one of the bullies but now that I get a better l...

Re: Shane Black & Fred Dekker to make PREDATOR Sequel

movieartman, you focus too much on whether things make sense from a Watsonian/in universe perspective. Just because it makes sense or characters to do something doesn't mean it will automatically be a meaningful or enjoyable story. Aliens vs Predator makes sense from the big game hunter angle, yes, ...

Re: Shane Black & Fred Dekker to make PREDATOR Sequel

Most of the Predator movies suck because the first two did one thing very well: They satirized, parodied, and then twisted an existing film trope into horror. The first one was basically putting the typical Arnold character (think of the the kind of musclebound hulk that has a name like John Matrix ...

I don't understand how Ellen Ripley and Newt could possibly show up in their past or how that could be explained in a stinger scene. That's just bonkers.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

If I had to predict: Godzilla from his wounds in KotM and vs. Kong has an immature Godzilla and Mechangodzilla. Whatever it is they do, I just hope they go fuck it and go full ham, because fuck it. Stop giving a fuck about realism, Hollywood. Realism is boring. I can get realism at the grocery store...

^ Exactly. When they first announced a Godzilla anime, I was wondering how they would realize the movement of such a creature in animation. After watching the Godzilla anime, I still wonder how they would realize his movement because Godzilla hardly moves in these movies. See, usually Godzilla, lik...
