  1. Oh, btw. Just to make my life easier, if you can give the country/language of the film and maybe also the title in both local and English when applicable and potentially not obvious, that would be great. I'll do my best to make sure I don't accidentally list a film twice because I did not realise that Agassi and The handmaiden are the same film. But it would make life easier if you could, at least in instances when its no extra research to do so.

  2. So this is probably important for any sort of tracking. California is starting to dip its toes into its "Stage 3" of reopening. Let's call it "Stage 2.5" for now. Why is that important? This is why: Most of us suspect/know that there is isn't a great chance of a major film getting a wide release if it can't open in NY or CA. Here's the catch (and you knew one was coming). This is being done on a county-by-county basis, and COVID-19 is still pretty widespread in Los Angeles County (relatively speaking that is), which is the Big Kahuna here. The

  4. Cool news from Austria, while hitherto talks were about a July opening, the good infection numbers in Austria have led to an earlier opening for cinemas - all cinemas may re-open this Friday (29th). Restrictions apply; basically the same as in the week preceding the lockdown: <100 seats/show, 1 meter distance between people (except from the same household). Now the question arises: What movies will we see?

  5. I mean... It IS scheduled to be the first big movie out. It's no more complicated than that

  6. NYC has to begin Phase One of reopening by next Friday (6/5) to have their theaters opened up by 7/17 according to NYS' guidelines btw. Just something to look out for.

  7. FYC The first of them, Once upon a time in America, is incredible, an absolute masterpiece. Its runtime is 4 hours, but I could be watching 40 hours... IMHO, at the same level than 2 first Godfather and in my top 5 ever.

  8. These are available on HBO Max it seems, for anyone who's subscribed or is planning to (I was going off this list). So are Yojimbo, Cleo from 5 to 7, La Strada, Z, Late Spring, Late Autumn, Tokyo Story, the Three Colors films, The 400 Blows, Autumn Sonata, Bicycle Thieves, In the Mood for Love, Seven Samurai out of the stuff that's already been listed/FYC'd here. Plus ofc the Ghibli movies.

  9. Halfway through I Know This Much Is True, you gotta hand it to HBO for going ahead airing a show built on the foundation of "if you think your life sucks, meet these guys" at a time when real pain and loss is so prevalent in the world. It's just Ruffalo's characters enduring a neverending series of tragedies with zero levity to balance it out. Been a while since I've seen a show or movie that seemed to go out of its way to make the viewer feel as shitty as possible (which isn't a slight against the show itself).

  11. The Half of It - Pretty cute! Don't know what else to say, really Man on the Moon - Pretty good, but felt a bit pedestrian for a subject as wild and boundary-pushing as Andy Kaufman. Great R.E.M. songs though. Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Really, really entertaining. Carrey sounds equal parts delusional and profound, but by the end of it it's a pretty touching look at the lines between the actor and the subject. The Truman Show (rewatch) - Just a perfect movie. Top 3 of all time for me.

  12. Ok, so we have a very international membership with a lot of international tastes. Therefore it is about time for an international countdown. The rules for eligibility are simple. * Must be a foreign production * Must be (predominantly) in a foreign language As with everything, there will be caveats, quirks and folks that just love asking nitpicky questions, so these are the ones that I have considered so far... English Language films by foreign directors and studios are NOT eligible. (e.g. No Snowpiercer) Foreign Language films made

  13. I dont see LA/Bay Area or NY region opening by July mid and so not sure this will open as planned. But if the trend is towards theaters opening soon after that(say early august), then WB may risk in opening as scheduled while markets that open late will have the release later like its a different market. how is it looking outside US. This needs OS BO as well to make up for big production costs. I dont see Brazil/Russia/India being in good shape but will China open its theaters. it need not be by July but there will be a log jam of releases(domestic) which could take precedence.

  14. Yep, was listening to this, too. This was interesting. Chris Aronson, head of Paramount US Theatrical, was basically indicating that from all the people he's speaking to, all the inside word he's getting, that Warner Bros. and the major theater chains are planning on opening for TENET on July 17th or very soon thereafter, hell or high water. I think it's possible it goes to August and pushes Wonder Woman back, but it does seem the case that Warner and theatrical are adamant that they are trying to stick to a summer opening.

  15. On OW, with IMAX, they make a lot more. They drop off over time. The highest grossing theaters are always in the 2 markets.

  16. The big roadblock here is that the situation is so fluid it makes it difficult on the chains to react quickly. They may not be given much notice before being given the green light, so there may be a lag between when they can open and when they actually do. All of this makes it difficult or impossible for the studios to market films and set release dates. Are studios going to spend money on marketing with all these unknowns? Are studios going to release films with very little or just last minute marketing? High risk and low reward is not a good business model for staying in business

  17. Can we all at least agree that the Ice Age franchise is easily the most baffling of the global blockbusters ? Two of those things made nearly $900M worldwide before crashing down with the last one and I'm pretty sure no one can tell any of the sequels apart from each other.

  18. Zack Snyder is always right Clearly, you and Patty Jenkins like working with one another since you’ve made two Wonder Woman films and I Am the Night together. Do you remember the moment where you first hit it off with each other? It’s funny because it was Zack Snyder who was the one who kept saying to Patty, “I really think you should meet with Connie Nielsen. I really think she’s right for this role.” Patty was like, “Oh, no, she’s this tough girl, and I’m not looking for a tough woman for this.” Zack then said, “I really don’t think so. I think you should meet with her.” So,

  19. Uncut Gems is still thrilling the second time around. The Platform on Netflix is fun. Ending was hysterical though, and not intentionally. The Last Dance is great, probably the best thing you can watch currently airing This season of Rick and Morty has been good That is all

  20. FWIW, Downfall is a full length film, so while it might be mostly famous in the Anglosphere for the meme clip, it surely counts clocking in at over 2 hours.

  23. Tbf, if the whole of this summer and possibly fall ends up pulled, everything will shift again, so nothing currently set for 2021 will stay as is.

  24. First Man - So well-made. Knocks it out the park in every department. I would have imagined the Academy Awards would be all over it, given its subject matter. I would also rank it above all the other space movies that have come out in recent years. Hereditary - One of the best horror movies of the past 20 years. Rarely do you see a horror film that blends art-house with genre tropes so well.
