  1. btw this is the first time I've really ventured into this thread but are we defining minority as being anyone who isn't a straight white man?
  2. Yeah, if there's a reason why Detroit flopped, the easiest to say is that there is no need to venture to a movie theater to pay money when you can see it on the news at home for free.
  3. Home Again (or how Reese Got Her Groove Back) over 84 million club

    No lies in this post. Every time I see the trailer I'm astounded by how unpolished the whole thing looks.
  4. Home Again (or how Reese Got Her Groove Back) over 84 million club

    Nancy Myers is only producing this, her daughter is making her directorial debut.
  5. The Hitman's Bodyguard actually had a great opening. Congrats to Ryan Reynolds for finally landing a hit that can actually be attributed to his individual drawing power. Legs should be fine with such nothing competition coming up so $70M+ total is definitely in the cards. Such a shame about Logan Lucky, though. Dunkirk is looking to finish with about the same total as Interstellar ($188M). Wind River is doing great so far. It won't reverse the chances of Weinstein closing its doors, but it'll be a nice little hit. Fine expansions for Ingrid Goes West and Good Time. The former has a better shot at expanding, though it probably won't cross the $10M mark either way (would be great if it got there though). lmao if they give The Only Living Boy in New York a wider expansion after how awful it's been doing. Terrible numbers for Patti Cake$ considering what Fox Searchlight ponied up for it at Sundance. Aside from Gifted, they've been on a terrible run in the nearly two years since Brooklyn.
  6. Home Again (or how Reese Got Her Groove Back) over 84 million club

    The poster is up in the lobby at my theater. It's so embarrassing, who even approved this? Reese looks like she's sitting on the throne.
  7. Home Again (or how Reese Got Her Groove Back) over 84 million club

    It's being released by Open Road, who just got sold off from Regal and AMC to another studio following a string of duds and disappointments. Who knows what their cash flow is like now.
  8. I'm actually expecting Harvey to come forward and admit that this isn't a real movie and that the trailer released was meant to be a parody of failed Oscar bait in which he recruited a bunch of big names to appear in.
  9. The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017)

    I feel like you and I see different versions of the same movie 9 times out of 10.
  10. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    I shut it off 10 minutes into the pilot.
  11. The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017)

    Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson have very good chemistry (though neither is really stepping outside of their wheelhouse here) but this is sunk by a script and direction that shifts uneasily in tone between being a comedy or being an action flick. I felt like I was watching a second rate version of either an Adam McKay or a Paul Feig movie and can't help but wonder how much potential they could've derived from this stuff and given the stars a more worthy vehicle to play off of each other. It's got some very funny moments (Salma Hayek actually gets most of the movie's biggest laughs, but she's hardly in it), but it's nothing you need to see until it inevitably shows up on F/X 2.5 years from now.

  12. Logan Lucky (2017)

    This was a blast and proof that nobody can pull off a fun heist movie as well as Steven Soderbergh (welcome back, we missed you!) can. I liked that it embraced the more cartoony nature of its North Carolina setting (the accents of pretty much the entire cast: ) yet still treated the characters like real people and not walking, talking stereotypes. Channing Tatum and Adam Driver are very good leading a great ensemble that also includes Riley Keogh, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Jack Quaid, Brian Gleeson, Seth MacFarlane, Sebastian Stan, Dwight Yoakam, and Hilary Swank (some with much more screentime than others), but the movie belongs to Daniel Craig, who is clearly having the time of his life in a part that allows him to completely cut loose. It kinda runs out of steam by the end, but it's so much fun that I can't really complain too much. B+
  13. Wind River (2017)

    Taylor Sheridan definitely has a unique voice that you can hear in his work. It's evident in Sicario. It's evident in Hell or High Water. And it's definitely evident in Wind River. Like his previous scripts, this is a slow-burner thriller that pays particular attention to its characters. Terrific performances from Jeremy Renner (who gives career best work here IMO) and Elizabeth Olsen and beautiful cinematography also add to the experience. B+
