Re: Last Movie You Watched

10 Cloverfield Lane Because over three thirds of the story is the trio in the bunker, the sci-fi alien elements feel a little out of place but since it's a franchise movie, make do with it. It could've ended with the moment Mary Elizabeth Winstead took off the makeshift air mask with relief that th...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

I know I always say don't pre judge a film until you've seen it blah blah but that's a giant "this is going to be shit" red flag.

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

Yeah I didn't mean to imply that every movie I mentioned was a flop, I was trying to point out that The Black Cauldron was a similar effort (and flop) to the early 2000's attempts at more mature animated films. I shouldn't have mashed those two ideas one sentence. What I was getting at is there's al...

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

The animated action movie (as opposed to the standard Disney formula or kid movie) has been around for a long time. The problem was always that they flopped, as in your examples, but also Disney’s own The Black Cauldron , but there have been a lot of animated cult films: Heavy Metal, Wizards, the an...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

The music choices in this trailer and the teaser sound idiotic if you say them out loud, and yet they work perfectly.

This one dropped a little more plot info.

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

Will animation become a medium for all forms of storytelling or will it simply expand from “kid stuff” to “kid stuff or vulgarity with titties and violence”? The Adult Swim stuff is all comedy, is it not? I’d love mainstream acceptance of animation as a medium for stories for older audiences; the co...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

The correct English translation of kimochi warui is not “I feel sick” or “how disgusting” but rather “you gotta be fucking shitting me”.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

This seems to be an age of directors who are talented visual stylists but don’t k ow how to tell a story. Large parts of VII look gorgeous. The first duel between Rei and Kylo Ren is magnificently executed but it’s hard to watch it without thinking “this is taking place on the really big super mega ...

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

I think everyone seriously underestimates how much of the draw of a movie theater is the exclusivity of the releases. There’s nothing magical about a really big screen and a sound system in a room. I don’t claim to know what it is but I expect some highly disruptive tech to really shake things up in...

I still can’t get over how everything in VII is either a reference to ANH, or just the same thing but a lot bigger.

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

They’re definitely not innovating.

If you want a look at what they will become if they don’t find talent and get out of the way, take a hard look at A Wrinkle In Time.

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

JJ Abrams should be tied to a giant magnifying glass and pointed at the sun so that he may become one with the lens flare, and thus stop working to perfect the stupid man’s idea of a smart movie.
