Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Word on the streets is Ron Howard had to reshoot up to 80% of Solo: A Star Wars Story *. Phil Lord & Chris Miller had been shooting for four months and were three weeks away from completing principal photography when they got fired. Ron Howard came on and started shooting in late June. They just...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

It looks like a video game cut scene. Crazy to think there's gonna be three of these. Hopefully the story is good but unless it really narratively blows things out of the water I'm still keeping the mindset this only exists as a placeholder due to the contract Toho signed with Legendary preventing t...

Re: Blade Runner franchise

^ It certainly has several flaws when it comes to the narrative & a few too many convenient logic jumps. It also a lot more of a traditional movie feel with a classical three-act structure rather than the weird poetic original. Which is why I have to bite my tongue when I hear people praise it f...

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

My vote for most anticipated 2018 superhero film sight unseen is probably The Incredibles 2 . Black Panther is a close second, it's one of the few Marvel movies I'm actually excited though. Plus, I am genuinely interested in seeing if The New Mutants will be a genuine horror film or is just using th...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

Apparently, NGE is playing on Japanese TV next month at a choice time. I think EOE has played multiple times on Japanese TV this year alone. So any & all claims that Rebuild "replacing" NGE seems hyperbolic at best. The new films have simply used the world of the original narrative as ...

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

Not shocked they went this way. After appearances in four movies Marvel noticed that the general public favors Thor when he was being sarcastic & funny as opposed to when he was being brooding & serious, a big part of that being due to Chris Hemsworth's knack for comedy, so they tailored Tho...

I think you're officially obsessed with NGE if you've been an EvaGeeks member for more than a month & you still keep posting.

Fascinating discussion. Don't agree with much of the statements about Rebuild being shallow but I can see and appreciate where people are coming from. Not something I'm going to get a passionate argument - this is one of those discussions that can go on for pages & ultimately means nothing becau...

Re: Nausicaa - Hideaki Anno Commentary

You'd have to double check online but I think the GKIDS re-releases carry over ALL the extras from the Disney releases but only a special few - Nausicaa & Ponyo for example - actually include new special features. Also, the Princess Mononoke rerelease includes properly translated English subtitl...

Nausicaa - Hideaki Anno Commentary

Didn't see a thread this would feel appropriate for so: GKIDS has acquired the US distribution rights for all Ghibli titles from Disney (guess they're okay letting Ghibli go since their hands are full with Disney Animation, Pixar, Marvel & Star Wars) and they've gotten to work re-releasing new B...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

There's a fascinating documentary to be made about the production of The Snowman & I would love to see it one day. The script for this movie started gaining major traction back in 2011 due to the current popularity & massive hype for David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo . I've nev...

Anywho, I expect we're gonna start getting so...

Never heard of this comic before but I am intrigued. I truly hope the movie follows through & is actually 100% a horror film that just happens to take place in the X-Men universe. Been burned too many times by Marvel's genre baiting: "Our new Spider-Man movie is actually a John Hughes films...

That is certainly a Star War.
