Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Well, the Toy Story 4 trailer was just “hey this is a movie”. I mean what, the toys are in it? Yay?

That will be either the worst movie of the year or the best movie of the year.

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

The anticlimax is the point, it's supposed to feel anticlimactic. It's a twist . The actual climax comes afterwards. I know they switched things around and made Killian the villain and not the scientist lady because somebody in the marketing department thought that girl toys don't sell, but regardle...

Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, and Werner Herzog.

Wow. That is impressive.

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

Releasing through Netflix has vastly more reach if they want to expand their audience. A re-release through Funimation would really only reach existing anime fans. Eva has a history of having a crossover appeal outside the hug pillow demographic.

Spike's performance is extremely shrill and lacking in range but I hear nothing of Texas in it.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Well, my guess is that Godzilla dies and Kong fights a baby Godzilla, or they don't fight much and team up against another enemy. Also Kong is going to be ludicrously huge in the next movie, they basically said he was a baby in Skull Island. I'd bet it'll be something like, dumbass humans drive Kong...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

The original teaser trailer (which must have some some rights issue or something, because it's been removed from the Internet which shouldn't be possible) for Godzilla 2014 was better than the actual film. I don't think that will be a problem this time. Also I'm totally okay with Ken Watanabe's sole...

Alternately, watch The Devil's Advocate with them first, then it won't be so bad.

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

There is pretty much no way to make the Mandarin not racist in a movie if he is brought forth from the comics as a Chinese mystic who fights Iron Man with kung fu and rings from magic dragon aliens that wear diapers. Even if you take a modern businessman approach, he's still a yellow peril villain, ...

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

But in all seriousness, they focus on the younger demographic where the good guys always win and complex themes are toned down for accessibility. In addition to that Disney wants to make fuckloads of money. To do that they stick with a formula that works, that makes money, a cookie cutter format as...

I'd be overjoyed if they bring in the Rebuild VA to do Rei. She's great.

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

You're looking at it from the wrong direction. There is no comparison between Iron Man 3 and Infinity War. Iron Man 3 is a character study, it's essentially a redo of Iron Man 2 with an actual character arc. Infinity War is mythology . It's not a story of quite moments and reflective characters. It'...

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

Money. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. At some point in their history, all the conservative, globe trotting juggernauts were risk-takers, and then they became mainstream and didn't fix what wasn't broken. Even if it was cat shit, Beauty and the Beast brought in a massive ROI. So there will be more.

When I saw it on opening night there were adults sobbing for Spider-Man. Infinity War is about the worst example of safe storytelling from Disney-Marvel. Age of Ultron was safe storytelling. You know was offensively safe storytelling? The adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time that they released this year....

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

We can reiterate this conversation again but again but storytelling choices worth talking about have permanent consequences. I don't care if the characters are all going to come back later, watching the movie made me emotional when I was watching it, in the moment. If it does that, it's a success. ...

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

Ah yes, Disney only lets Marvel make safe movies, like the one where the villain wins and half the population of the entire universe dies, including a bunch of beloved characters. Yeah yeah, they'll be back. Did you also know that they're actors and none of them really died? I mean, how can they be ...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

There's always going to be a compromise in watching a film in a language you don't understand. If there's subtitles, the eye is being drawn to an addition that wasn't intended by the director, away from the visuals. If there's a dub, the acting will be fundamentally different. The original Eva dub i...
