    After 6 or so years I've decided to step down from my Admin role on the forums. In 2020 I have found it hard to be on the forums enough to do a proper job of moderating and after much deliberation I decided it would be better if I stepped down. I'd like to personally and publicly thank @Shawn for the opportunities he has provided me. As someone who was not an active forum poster and pretty quiet in general it was a honor to be asked to join the staff. @Water Bottle you have always been supportive, especially when it came to my Derby requests and @Plain Old Tele - I modeled my moderation style after you. The forums lost a great resource when you stepped down from the staff. I won't attempt to mention all the members and staff that I've enjoyed interacting with over the years. It's been great. I just hope that some of the old-timers will return to posting more often. I do want to mention that the one thing I learned about moderating here is how important different views are in a social setting such as the BOT forums. I hope the forums continue to contain a diverse and tolerant attitude towards both movies and life in general. I'll still be around as much as I can so this is not goodbye and the Derby will continue to operate with @ChipDerby's help.

    So we had to do a presentation for on our understanding ethics In technology class today. And the professor said that everyone had to submit a project and then check in with class on what they did. I thought we had DO a presentation. So I made a five minute video on How Theatrical Distribution is a Technological System that's been Disrupted by COVID, how the Big Five Studios are attempting to use Streaming Services as an technological and economical fix for their profits, and how that's terrible for consumers. And like, LMFAO, I was the only one that showed their project. And after my class was like “well, fuck”. The woman after me was like “I wish I didn’t have to go after that” Here it is. You all feel like the target audience for it. And thanks to Tele for helping me out. And TW/CW. There is some #feigerights 😂

    And there we go. The countdown is over. Thank you to those of you that stuck with me throughout the reveal (I know I was criminally unqualified to be hosting this one, but I tried to keep it entertaining despite that). I've missed doing these leisurely slow countdown reveals... Maybe I should come up with something else I am unqualified to talk about...

    12th: Grave of the Fireflies - Japan (1988) 2 Top 5, 1 Top 10, 190 pts Assumed Plot: Forget about just foreign language, this is the single best animated film of all time. Don't get me wrong, I don't think i can bring myself to ever watch it again, but it is something that everybody should watch. I will not lie, this film broke me within 5 minutes of the run through and kept it there right through to the final credits. It is the best Japanese film of all time, the best animated film of all time, and possibly top 3 best war films of all time also. Just thinking about rice cakes in the context of this film just puts me in danger of getting emotional. I'm not watching it, nope nope nope... I was hoping this would make the top 10, I was very hoping, and it was looking good for a while, but in the end it slipped down to 12th which makes me sad. Seriously though, if you have seen this, find it and watch it. And Japan inches closer to the top. It is beginning to get ominous and is now only 3 films off the top... From Amazon user, Steve P The saddest movie ever made. In Japanese with English subtitles is the way to go if you want to watch this. One of the most powerful anti-war movies, if you don't cry when you see this, you are heartless. A tip...from Amazon, buy a can of Sakuma's Drops....they are a Japanese candy. Eat them while you watch. You'll get it when you see the film...and it will break your heart.Highly recommended!

    Incorrect that graph is from Netflix and they say as much in the accompanying paragraph “We already know, from Netflix, that only 30% of Sign-ups occur on mobile devices — and that number is likely to be much lower during a global pandemic.” Netflix also offers mobile only plans in some regions so that will skew things also the graph shows a shift in how users change device over time. I still don’t think Sensor Tower provides an accurate picture but if you wanted a more realistic impact it’s probably the first statistic they give “Our data shows that the real impact to Sign-ups was far greater than that – we saw a a 641% increase in Sign-ups over the same time period(not 74%).” which is about 8 times the figure which would translate into $96m (note that I also don’t think that is accurate for what it’s worth)

    4th: Pan's Labyrinth - Mexico (2005) 1 First, 3 Top 5, 1 Top 10, 258 pts Assumed Plot: I thought this was Spain too, but it was submitted by Mexico so Mexican it is. This is a very Spanish film though. I mean, I assume, I never saw it. I just know it is sort of about the Spanish civil was and there is a weird Hand-eye monster thing. This film made a big play for the absolute top spot for a while, but it eventually fell away and ended up in what is still a pretty a-maze-ing finishing position. That looks pretty good also. Some of these best films ever are possbily actually pretty good folks. In my defense, I did see both Bill and Ted 3 and Palm Springs last weekend and they are the top 2 films of the year, so I do watch things. Just not weird, gothic Spanish... I mean Mexican things. And now as it stands, France remains one up with 3 to play. Will they hold on? From Amazon user, The Critic It is nothing that i expected instead of the light hearted fantasy film i was expecting(which i was still expecting to enjoy) you get a very dark, violent realistic movie that sugar coats nothing. The acting superb, the story telling is equally impressive and the soundtrack and special effects are spot on. There isn't much i really want to say about the story being as it would be very easy to spoil one of the many unexpected twists in this movie. If you are fine with dark and violent movies you really should consider watching this because it is nothing less than a master piece.

    11th: Princess Mononoke - Japan (1997) 1 Top 5, 2 Top 10, 198 pts Assumed Plot: The story of a princess and a wolfboy that fall in love. This is the story of a girl and a war, and some animal gods. It is the most epic of the Ghibli films and probably the one that would potentially make the most successful live action film if anybody decided they wanted to do that. (It is also the film that the makers of Pixar's Brave clearly had playing on a loop while storyboarding for their film. I Still think this is the prettiest Ghibli film still. I mentioned in previous posts that there are two Ghibli films that I consider are all time greats. Those are Grave of the Fireflies and When Marnie was there. But Mononoke definitely comes next as one of the two very good ones. And Japan is now not just inching, but positively galumphing towards India's now shaky looking total of 16. It may all be a matter of time and that means you can all lament y'alls own refusals to vote for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Dil Se. From Amazon user, Mr Twonines Summary: "Princess Mononoke" focuses on Ashitaka, a young warrior who is exiled from his village because of a deadly curse. In search for a cure, Ashitaka sets out on a journey, hoping to find any answers he can. During his travels, however, he stumbles upon a long standing fued between Lady Eboshi of Iron Town and Princess Mononoke of The Forest. Two different ideologies clashing for control. One fights for her people, while the other fights for the forest and it's inhabitants. Yet, both seeking to kill one another. Not wanting blood to be shed, Ashitaka takes it upon himself to search for a path in where both leaders can coexist. All the while still battling the curse within himself.

    OCTOBER SCREENINGS October, traditionally, is the month for all things horrific and spooooky. But it's 2020. The entire year is a horror movie. This month's schedule reflects my general anxieties, fears, and dread as we count down to November: September 30 Dark Victory (1939) 1 hour 44 mins Directed by Edmund Goulding; Starring Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart Our transitional movie is Betty Davis in Dark Victory, where she plays a wealthy, hedonistic heiress, who gets diagnosed with brain cancer and falls for her doctor. It also is famous for featuring a supporting role by the devil himself, Ronald Reagan. I can’t think of anything more horrific. October 03 The Haunting (1962) 1 hr 54 minutes Directed by Robert Wise; Starring Julie Harris, Claire Bloom Based on Shirley Jackson's classic horror story about a haunted house, and repressed lesbians, this is my favorite horror movie. "Hill House has stood for about 90 years and appears haunted: its inhabitants have always met strange, tragic ends. Now Dr. John Markway has assembled a team of people who he thinks will prove whether or not the house is haunted." October 07 Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975) 1 hr 55 minutes Directed by Peter Weir; Starring Rachael Roberts, Anne-Louise Lambert, Vivean Gray Peter Weir's adaptation of Joan Lindsay's novel of the same name; "during a rural summer picnic, a few students and a teacher from an Australian girls' school vanish without a trace. Their absence frustrates and haunts the people left behind." A rare horror movie shot in the light, this film mixes elements of supernatural and horror to a chilling effect. October 10 Gaslight (1944) 1 hr 54 mins Directed by George Cukor; Starring Ingrid Bergman A woman's husband manipulates her into thinking she's insane. I mean: October 14 Tod Browning Double Feature Freaks (1932) / The Devil-Doll (1936) 1 hour 6 mins / 1 hr 20 minutes Tod Browning is an early silent and sound filmmaker, best known for directing Dracula. But some of his best work are these two short "horror" movies. Freaks tells the story of a trapeze artist who agrees to marry a fellow circus performer, but his friends discover she only wants him for his inheritance. The film -- only clocking in at an hour -- lost a reel after MGM saw the film and hated it; it's since taken on a cult classic feel. The Devil-Doll is just, look, it's straight up the most bizarre film I've ever seen. It's got a revenge plot from Count of Monte Cristo mixed with Mad Scientists and early movie special effects. Lionel Barrymore spends half the film in drag. It's a trip. October 17 The Manchurian Candidate (1962) 2 hrs 6 mins Directed by John Frankenheimer; Starring Frank Sinatra, Janet Leigh, and Angela Lansbury You've probably heard the term, and seen the Denzel version. Here is the original, classic political horror show thriller: "A former POW is brainwashed as an unwitting assassin for an international Communist conspiracy." October 21 Double Feature The Pit and The Pendulum (1961) 1 hr 25 mins Directed by Roger Corman; Starring Vincent Price Really can't beat a film directed by the Pope of Pop Cinema, staring the iconic Vincent Price. This is based on Edgar Allan's Poe's short story, in this version: "In the sixteenth century, Francis Barnard travels to Spain to clarify the strange circumstances of his sister's death after she had married the song of a cruel Spanish Inquisitor." The film's written by Richard Matheson, who wrote sixteen episodes of what we have next: It's A Good Life (1961) 25 minutes Directed by James Sheldon; Written by Rod Sterling Both of the films this week are only an hour and a half, so I decided to sneak on two episodes of Rod Sterling's The Twilight Zone. We think of the Twilight Zone for its brilliant social commentary and sci-fiction stories, but Rod Sterling could write a horror story, and this week we have two. The first is It's A Good Life. "On an isolated family farm, a young boy with vast mental powers, but lacking emotional development, holds his terrified family in thrall to his every juvenile wish." October 24 Double Feature The Blob (1958) 1 hr 26 mins Directed by Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr; Starring Steve McQueen Yes! That Steve McQueen! In this 1950's B-Horror Movie classic, a too old to play a High Schooler Steve McQueen fights off a mindless, all-consuming Blob trying to devour his small town. The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street (1960) 25 mins Directed by Ronald Winston; Written by Rod Sterling From Season 1 from The Twilight Zone, this episode centers "on a peaceful suburban street where paranoia reigns supreme." Often ranked as the #1 or #2 greatest episode of the series. If you haven't seen either of these Twilight Zone episodes, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you go in blind. Do NOT look into them before you watch them. October 28 Ace In The Hole (1951) 1 hour 52 mins Directed by Billy Wilder; Starring Kirk Douglas and Jan Sterling Next, we follow the unwritten rule of this entire endeavor: if there is a Billy Wilder movie available, show the Billy Wilder movie. Considered one of his finest, though a commercial flop during its initial release, Ace In The Hole is about "Chuck Tatum (Douglas), an ambitious newspaperman more concerned with his own glory and profits than with reporting the truth." October 31 Singin' In The Rain (1952) 1 hr 42 mins Directed By Gene Kelly and Stanley Doren; Starring Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O'Connor And finally, after all of that dread, and fear, and horror, we're going to let everything go and watch my Ultimate Comfort Movie. I want nothing more than to have two hours of peace and share in the glory of Gene Kelly's ass magna opus. (Also: I'm working the polls for my town. We actually might be counting ballots, depending on the volume we receive and what the Clerk says, that weekend. So I want something I can easily cancel if I have to.)

    i think the only thing this weekend confirms is that the movie industry has a huge worldwide issue (it's called a pandemic) and it is likely to be a big issue for at least another 6-8 months. The numbers in the Domestic market just go to show that all the surveys over the last couple of months where only indoor music concerts had a lower percentage of people willing to see them were correct. Generally no more than 20% of Americans have said they would be comfortable going to a movie theater. As long as that is the case then any big movie is a no go for release. It's not even about how many theaters and seats are available. It is about how many GA are willing to show up and right now every polling suggests it is a small number. Europe is only better in comparison to the US. it's year over year numbers are significantly down and Tenet is doing ok because it is the only big movie out and so can dominate the number of screens and seats in a social distancing formula, But that also means you can't really have more than 1 big movie a month for any tentpole type movie to have any chance to make money, otherwise the screens get split and the number of seats available plummets. A model with only one big release per month won't work for most studios and you think about the summer months and the Holiday seasons when tentpole movies are being released on top of each other - that is not something that can be done right now anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. The bigger issue no one is dealing with yet is how quickly is this all going to go downhill in October/November in the Northern Hemisphere when the weather changes and people are mostly indoors. I expect a strong health push for people not to go anywhere with indoor crowds (theaters would certainly fit that bill) starting in Oct/Nov and running to at least Feb/Mar. IMO the Holiday season is likely to be largely a lost season. I could see it easily being next April or May before we are in a spot where we can start to release tentpole type movies. it will likely have to be after the winter flu season and hopefully after a working vaccine is released and has been distributed wide enough to make a difference. Somebody earlier in the thread mentioned Disney, right now this is something of an existential crisis for them. Their whole model is based on having large groups of people close together - whether that be in a theme park, a movie theater, a cruise ship, a hotel, etc. None of those are doable right now, which is why their revenue plunged last quarter over 93%. This week they are planning on shortening their hours at WDW because the numbers visiting have been smaller than expected. They are actually one company that desperately needs the pandemic to be brought under control because until it does they are going to hemmorage money. Whatever happens we are likely to see alot less movies made over the next couple of years simply because the studios are not going to have as much money to make movies.

    America did this all wrong. The biggest chain here opened on the first weekend of July. It was a full month of horrendous disasters to build trust and WOM that cinemas are safe. The first movie with a marketing campaign opened on August 6, and did respectably. Mid August a big nationwide campaign started which announced theaters were opened. That combined with the Tenet and After campaigns starting at the same time was the perfect storm for things to go well. Meanwhile in America the plan was to speedrun throught all of that and just release a big budget blockbuster 2 weeks after the reopening, which wasn't even a full reopening of all theaters in all of the country. Most people are probably not even aware theaters are opened and no trust or WOM was built/spread about theaters being safe. It was the perfect storm... just in the opposite direction of what happened in Europe.

    15th: Train To Busan - Korea (2016) 0 Top 10, 184 pts (More votes) Assumed Plot: Now this fucker is certainly on a train. It's pretty much world war Z on a train, but a much better second half and more consistent direction. This is one of the best zombie films of all time and is a great watch. As an aside, best not to remember how good this was if/when you watch peninsula as that film...loses its way in the third act. Has some great acting and some fun scenes before that (even if the director has clearly been watching a little too much Mad Max). That's a great trailer btw... Hooray, its a Korean film!! We haven't seen one of them since...51st PLACE!!! WTH people? That was like an eternity ago. I believe this is also the first Korean film to appear on this list not directed by Park Chan Wook or Bong Joon Ho. Let's double check...Yes, that is correct. And after all that blathering about Hong Kong being free alone in 5th place, Korea pegs them back by reaching 5 films and being on its own above Sweden and Germany. From Amazon user, Sean Brodrick Last night, I watched "Train to Busan" streamed on Amazon. It cost $5; well worth it. It's the best zombie movie I have seen in a long time.Zombie enthusiasts will want to know, these are "fast zombies." Also, the zombie virus appears to kill mammals and reanimate the corpses. One interesting twist is the zombies can't see well in the dark. I've always thought that would be the case in a "real" zombie apocalypse because dead eyes aren't going to dilate or focus. Also, these zombies are stupid in the extreme. Too stupid to open doors. They're biting, running machines.Zombie movies are often allegories for something: Consumerism, terrorism, etc. "Train to Busan" is a study in selfishness. In other words, in a crisis, some people are quite selfless, and others are quite selfish.In this movie, the higher up in status people are, they tend to be more selfish. So, the main character is a fund manager who is VERY selfish. But he does care about his very young daughter, who is extremely unselfish. This humanizes him, and allows him to succeed and grow.But the highest status person is the CFO of a transport company. He's on the train, and he is extremely selfish. And it shapes and warps his reactions to everything.Korea is a strict "no gun" society. So what do you in zombie uprising when there are no guns? This adds to the terror quite a bit.Korean movies are often very dark in their outlook. And I thought this one was going to Nietzchian depths that would give the Germans pause, but it pulls back (a little) in the end.Also, the movie made me very jealous of Korean trains. They are awesome.Anyway, if you're a fan of zombie movies, I highly recommend "Train to Busan." You can stream it on Amazon for a nominal price.

    WTF. I am shell shocked to see the news. This is completely out of the blue. Condolences to his family. Very charismatic actor/star is lost. WOW.

    If both Tenet and Mulan do disastrously this weekend, I think it just shows that there's no space at all for big-budget blockbusters atm (which might actually be a good thing).

    Seeing Tenet tomorrow night. I've been streaming the soundtrack all day today and I can't state how fucking excited at the prospect of finally going back to the movie theater. It's been good to finally have something big to look forward to for once in several months.

    So I'm really going to be the only one brave enough here to say that I did not like this movie one single bit. The sound mix is definitely a problem, so much so that this film actually needed subtitles. I literally could not understand probably a quarter of the movie and the scene when they were on those motorized sailboats and they are wearing black helmets, you couldn't understand a freaking word these guys are saying. The plot seemed way too ambitious way to mumbo-jumbo and I just didn't really understand what a lot of it meant. There's way too much exposition and in between some of the inception like action scenes it's just a bunch of people talking about things that don't really make a lot of sense. now you guys can get on your soapbox and tell me that I didn't understand the movie and that's why I didn't like it. And I agree with you to a point. But I shouldn't have to go into a movie and analyze every freaking scene in order to get enjoyment out of it. If you guys say you really enjoyed it and you really loved it then more power to you. Me, I didn't like this really at all right from the get-go. 6/10

    A certain contingent (Horror of Lucas, mulderfox, litio) seem to have become obsessed with painting me as a theater hater after I had the audacity to project TENET a bit on the pessimistic side. Thanks for the support, but no need to take them too seriously.

    If Soul is confirmed for PVOD, they would remove Soul from theatrical schedule, just like what they did with Mulan. But DIsney haven't removed Soul from theatrical schedule.

    And equally, Black Widow has far more to gain by getting a theatrical release than Mulan did.

    What exactly made no sense in it, provided you buy into the concept of inversion? Or were you expecting a physics documentary?

    My movie watching has gone way down since going back to work, but I got to watch Sunset Boulevard twice this week: once in prepping to show it to a class, then showing it to said class. It’s always occupied a weird place in my mind where it’s absolutely an all-timer, but I also always hold it against its fellow 1950 masterpiece All About Eve, which is in my all-time top five. The script is amazing and Gloria Swanson’s verbal and physical expressiveness as Norma Desmond is incredible. I’m also watching Burn After Reading for the first time since a re-watch on DVD over the Christmas/New Year’s break in ‘08. Only the Coen Brothers would follow something as dark and lyrical as No Country for Old Men with a goofy star-driven comedy.

    Come to think of it, Argo too would've stopped at about 6x without the awards season bump (it was 19/110 as of early January 2013). So if you wanna ignore that too, then it's The Ring, which came out two weeks before Halloween, and before that The Others.
