  1. I don’t want to risk 80 people’s jobs just so I can say I have big nuts. - Danny Trejo on actors who do their own stunts instead of stuntmen (not saying I 100% agree with him)

  3. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    "I wonder how many posts I've written. Looks and sees that it's 7,999. Pretty cool!" I see Gerard's been training up for a 300 sequel.
  4. Please be careful Tom Cruise. Let stuntmen do your stunts. Let them do their jobs and have a job.
  5. And prayerfully, encourage more original movies (this film is based on a comic series but few people in the world know about them so.....:)
  6. That's like saying, if Robert Rodriguez puts together an enjoyable movie that will appeal to the masses in a way that compels them to take out their pocketbooks then the track record doesn't matter. Well, of course but we're speculating and all I have to go off of is a track record (both the financial performance and overall reception to his films). Half of the MCU directors had track records filled with smaller films yet their MCU movies have done well and are likely very profitable. I look forward to being pleasantly surprised.
  7. For what many expect will be one of the highest grossing movies in the history of film ($700m+), there doesn't seem to be a lot of buzz surrounding Episode 8. In fact, my spidey sense is up on Episode VIII although I can't pinpoint why. I had it even before the OK trailer (I say this as a huuuuge SW fan). Some possible reasons (I could be totally wrong and the hype is indeed, real): 1. Like Avatar, the cultural shockwaves from TFA didn't last long. The film didn't "stick" with people and TLJ suffers for it 2. Relatively tepid reaction to the first trailer 3. Less hype because it is a sequel to a movie that came out only 1.5 yrs ago at this point (Rogue One even sooner) 4. Somewhat related to #3 but possible franchise fatigue Hope my vague concerns are misplaced and we see a 90% RT score and $800m DOM
  8. Hope you're right. I look forward to getting a different result than Solaris and Strange Days (James Cameron produced films that he did not also direct).
  9. I wasn't talking about RR as a draw but his directing. His ability to make a successful profitable $200m movie. The bolded text is exactly the point. Besides Sin City, he doesn't have a track record of delivering on those things AND drawing in large mainstream audiences.
  10. Me too. The first one was "cute" and something new. Warner Bros. (and all the non-Disney studios) are furiously chomping at the bit for any new cash cows that they overindulged (two back to back spinoffs and a sequel in 2019), thinking that they had a lucrative tentpole for years to come. Ninjago will struggle to reach $150m dom
  11. Smaller/Medium films are going to be his niche for the foreseeable future I think. He's a fantastic actor....just not a big draw.
  12. Just noticed that as well. You beat me to the punch. In the hands of James Cameron, sure. Maybe. I think this will have to do well internationally to make a profit though Robert Rodriguez's track record is not looking good there either: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/people/chart/?view=Director&id=robertrodriguez.htm
  13. I've avoided nearly all images and sounds of this film. *fist pump* The over saturation from exposure to all the Spiderman: Homecoming trailers won't happen here. No siree. I can't wait!
