Anyone who likes Gremlins might be interested in this as it's clearly referencing the thing Futterman talked about in the 80's movie which was gremlins messing with aircraft and the real WW2 mythology, which says that they used to mess with the instruments to the point that they could get aircraft to turn around and fly upside down in mid-flight.

Note this clearly taking some liberties and is not all serious, and there were female pilots in WW2 but they were the night witches from Russia as well as the British spitfire testers both flew small planes but it's horror/action/black comedy so it fits.

Oh my god, I didn't know this movie existed until literally thirty seconds ago, but I desperately want to see it now!

Disney's Raya & The Last Dragon

Teaser - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BPMTr-NS9s

Trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VIZ89FEjYI

Gonna be honest, this new trailer tangibly disappointed compared to the teaser. I haven't seen virtually any of the modern 3D animated Disney/Pixar films but Moana & this film caught my eye but with this trailer the baby & the dragon (both in design & voice) seem notably out of place and more childish than everything else. Also the villain seems unremarkable.

That said the main actress seems to be doing good voice work, I really like the Asian culture stuff and that shot of Raya walking with purpose, sword drawn through the giant temple was badass & giving me Jedi vibes.

My problem with this is it feels so 90's vibe its like that eternal fight with Xena and Callisto where they were forever butting heads but this worked as Callisto was deeply complex villain but if the films female villain is not this complex it's gonna fall flat on its face.

I also genuinely worry about the male characters treatment since Frozen 2 took a problem and made it generally worse, and I'm sick of media using the 90's model of putting male characters down as a means to elevate female characters as this is very damaging to young viewers as it's doing a reverse of what the 80's did with the female character, and it's not helpful its bad and lazy writing that has consequences as the person watching view themselves as less compared to the other gender. Adults can see through it as their adults but children/teens who have not learnt where they fit in yet and can buy in to the idea.

Looks at trailer to Raya & the Dragon. Sees cute kung fu babies and butt jokes.

Oh right, this is the movie that Disney coached the films director into lying in a recent interview that "We had to tone the violence down to keep it from being rated R" because that's what their braintrust said will sell an action film with a woman lead to teenage boys and sexists.
Right.
I totally believe this movie came this close to it being Rated R.

I'm sure as a movie it will be fine. Disney Animation projects are focus grouped and tinkered with to the nth degree so they can play to everyone. Even if someone doesn't like the film with a $200+ million budget and some of the top animators in the world working on it the thing'll be nice to look at.

Shrug. Should be alright as a movie.

ALSO
HBOMax put out a new trailer for their Theaters/Streaming Same Day deal. There are first looks at a LOT of upcoming movies. As a lifelong fan of going to the movies I'm conflicted on this idea in the long run - Warner Brothers is still half-heartedly saying this is ONLY for 2021 but I don't know if you can put the genie back in the bottle.... ideally in 2022 and beyond they can do a hybrid thing were certain movies are Theaters/HBOMax same day and others are just Theaters first but who knows... - but it's nice to know through this year as the pandemic HOPEFULLY starts winding down there will be interesting new releases coming. out every few weeks that I won't have to risk getting sick to see.



Really curious what Lana Wachowski's 4th Matrix film will be about. It's the only announced film they have that is still too early to share any footage. I hope they reveal a full name and aren't just sticking with MATRIX.

This movie feels more like a lost Dreamworks movie than an actual Disney movie, speaking for myself I find it depressing that the 'Disney Brand' feels it needs to do such a thing to stay relevant. Disney has always been about more wholesome entertainment, while other companies like Dreamworks and Warner Brothers were the ones who did the more irreverent stuff like butt and sex jokes.

I doubt anything other than a complete redo of the finale of the series would be enough to rekindle fans interests after how disappointing season eight was

I'm still probably going to watch Raya (assuming I get Disney+), and in all honesty I'll probably like it, but this second trailer just rubs me the wrong way.

Going off the description and the first trailer, this movie had the potential to be something else. Something game-changing. Something revolutionary. As I mentioned earlier, Disney has this bad habit of making movies that sort of rub shoulders with new genres, but don't fully embrace them. We saw it with Big Hero 6, we saw it with Zootopia, we saw it with Moana, and we sure are seeing it with Raya and the Last Dragon.

What I mean is, these movies use the tropes associated with their respective genres, but at the same they feel held back from truly feeling like straight entries in those genres. They feel more like parodies. Big Hero 6 feels too self-aware and jokey to go in the same category as, say, the films of the MCU or the DCEU. And you could say the same thing about Zootopia and the crime movie genre.

Just based on the description alone, Raya feels like it should have been something different. It feels like it should have been a straight-faced fantasy epic, free to embrace its genre instead of being held back from doing so by formula.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

David Fincher (seven, the game, the social network, zodiac) to direct The Killer with the writer of Seven for Netflix.
Michael Fassbender (one of my top 2 favorite actors) is likely to star :w00t:
https://bloody-disgusting.com/movie/365 ... er-killer/

Spike Lee (da 5 bloods, malcom x) to produce The Realm of Cthulhu for Netflix. :mwahaha:
https://bloody-disgusting.com/movie/365 ... m-cthulhu/
Stefon Bristol (See You Yesterday) is on board to direct.
Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu is “set in East Africa in 1928 and centers on Gordon Hemingway, a roguish Black American gunslinger, who teams up with the elite warrior Princess Zenebe of Ethiopia to rescue the country’s kidnapped regent from an ancient evil.”

Legendary's new Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot/sequel.

This latest TCM movie will reportedly feature a much older take on power-tool swinging maniac. Listed in the character breakdown as "Kenny," he is described as being about 60-years-old with a large build, and is said to "primarily express himself with guttural noises that range from a howling belly laugh to a pig-like squeal."
Sounds about right, and suggests that this new movie will actually be more of a sequel than a reboot.
The plot will reportedly follow a 25-year old San Francisco moneymaker named Melody, who drags her wheelchair-bound sister Dreama to the Lone Star State on a business trip only to run into our human skin-mask wearing friend.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre now has David Blue Garcia on board as director. Fede Alvarez will produce.

Disney wants that Harley Quinn money and honestly look like they are doing a better job at it than Dc.

Chaos Walking with Daisy Ridley, Tom Holland & Mads Mikkelsen finally got a official trailer after being in horrible post production turmoil since 2017. Doesn't look bad to me.

Band of Brothers sequel Masters of the Air is coming.
Some casting news - https://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/1164 ... ers-sequel
Masters of the Air is a follow-up to HBO’s Emmy-winning World War II miniseries Band of Brothers and The Pacific. Based on the book by Donald L. Miller, the new miniseries follows the true, deeply personal story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep.

I'm honestly just as blasé towards Cruella as I am to any other Disney remake. It does look like they're trying to do their own Joker or Harley Quinn, but at the same time. . . it's freaking Disney. Do we really expect them to actually go all-out and embrace the qualities that made those movies interesting?

My issue is they are trying to humanize a person who loves fur who probably skins endangered animals and beefs up the now illegal fur trade, it's not like maleficent who had a generally terrible thing happen to her in the prequel movie which turned her evil, and they could get away with this and make it work as next to nothing was known about maleficent's backstory she was technally a blank slate much like Scar and Jafar.

At no point in the original cartoon was there any hints that Cruella had any compassion for others or was hard done to in any way as she is a rich narcissist who fires anyone who won't comply with her wishes and sends her crooks after people. So I don't see how there gonna make Cruella likeable or even justified as I don't think this is a villain that could ever be justified no matter how you spin it as her quotes from the old cartoon show that she is a psychopath without empathy.

One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)

"My Only True Love, Darling. I Live For Furs. I Worship Furs! After All, Is There A Woman In All This Wretched World Who Doesn't?"

"Why You Horrid Man...You....You...Alright, Keep The Little Beasts For All I Care! Do What You Like With Them! Drown Them!"

"I Don't Care How You Kill The Little Beasts, But Do It, And Do It Now!"

Gareth Edwards back in the directing chair, FTW!!!
I’ve missed his style and was hoping SW fans didn’t chase him away from filmmaking.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!
