  1. The rate of severe reactions for viral vaccines that have actually gone through the full approval process is generally about 1 in 1 million. The chances of getting COVID-19 are going to remain way, way above 1 in 1 million in the vast majority of countries, including Canada. Mild reactions are such as soreness at the injection site are obviously more common than 1 in 1 million but are simply not comparable to getting COVID-19. To put it mildly, it doesn't make any sense at all to suggest that there's a greater risk from a vaccination than from COVID-19. (An exception would be someone

  2. I'm very aware that RNA vaccines haven't been administed on a wide scale in humans before. But the post I replied to made a blanket statement about the risks of a vaccine being greater than COVID-19. And even if it was specifically referring to the Moderna vaccine - anyone suggesting the Moderna vaccine will be riskier than getting COVID-19 is, to be frank, talking out of their ass. There isn't any meaningful data from the Moderna vaccine to make that assessment. A severe reaction to a high dose in a phase 1 trial simply doesn't mean anything, the final version of the vaccine will not use t

  3. Theaters will reopen on June 22 in France, I thought it'd be a pleasant info for the forum. :) And given I'm here writing something let's add that after 18 days of reopening the number of cases didn't increase in France: the number of deaths, cases..etc..is still decreasing. It might be too early to rejoice but it shows a good plan and dedication can work. As for me I didn't change my behavior from the lockdown days: social distanciation, wearing a mask where there are people (downtown, shops...) but at the same time I mostly go where there aren't many people in order to walk with

  6. June Adam & Cindy - its cute. I wish it had a better resolution to its central tragedy than just slapstick though. 2.5/5 Yang - utterly baffling in so many ways. Whereas the first film existed in a lovely dream-logic, this film exists in something more akin to a horror film, and entirely lacks the subtle flow of Yin. Honestly, I think last year's Facepaint would've been a better Yang than this was; this should've been left as a spiritual sequel, as the plot setup feels likes it's going towards a film with legitimate social commentary and scary moments, but it all leaves wa

  7. No, not really. All of the people in the trial with severe reactions had received the highest dose of the vaccine. A really important detail that makes the overall results of the Moderna trial good news is that the participates who had received low and moderate doses produced neutralizing antibodies at a level comparable to that resulting from natural infection and therefore probably sufficient for immunity. In fact, the phase 2/3 trials will not proceed with the high dose of the vaccine not just because of the adverse reactions but also because the low and medium doses produced a suffic

  8. This is a right wing talking point to bash Whitmer, and it is just a smear. The order includes very clear guidelines on how COVID positive residents should be handled in this situation. If homes aren't following the rules it just further reinforces why important infrastructure should not be left in the hands of private individuals. https://www.mlive.com/public-interest/2020/04/whitmer-orders-nursing-homes-to-transfer-coronavirus-patients-to-separate-units-or-special-facilities.html The entire purpose and intent of the order is to separate the positive residents from the

  11. What a blast reading this again. Anyone who hasn't seen Hard to Be a God needs to do so and post in this thread. So many funny posts in here and yet one thing is constant.....everyone comments on the mud and chickens and even the donkey schlong.

  16. 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.

  18. 5.4 mil views in barely a week is pretty good for an original film that's only riding on the director's name.

  20. Watched the final episode of Mrs. America last night. Great ending to an overall very strong miniseries that shows us how far we've come while also reminding us we've still got work to do. Wouldn't be surprised if it ended up winning the Limited Series Emmy (or at least provided a real challenge for Watchmen). Cate Blanchett is gonna win every award for this and deserves it. Tremendous performance capturing what an evil person Schlafly was while still allowing her humanity to shine through every now and then (in particular that quiet little moment where she realizes her son is gay)

  21. Made a huge mistake of watching the theatrical cut of Little Shop of Horrors. I ended up watching the last 30 minutes of the director's cut after I watched the theatrical cut. The ending of the theatrical cut is pretty awful while the director cut's ending is hilarious and also is brilliantly executed. Pretty easily lifted what would've been a low 7, maybe a 6/10 movie to an 8.

  22. to be fair, BR is better than some billion-dollar movies already. Even if you're on the "don't like it" side of the fence, it's miles better than something like Age of Extinction. Either way, it would have been a nice accomplishment to show studios that biopics can be profitable. I wanna see more of those. It's partly why I'm disappointed Rocketman didn't break out as big as it should have.

  23. $50 million might be a bit pessimistic, but I can definitely see it missing $100 million which would be a shocker for a Nolan film in any other circumstances, and not something WB would be happy with. Speaking purely anecdotally, I love Nolan movies, I’ve seen them all in cinemas and own all the DVD’s/Blu Ray’s, but there’s no way I’ll feel comfortable heading out to a cinema in July. I can’t wait to see Tenet and it absolutely shouldn’t skip theatrical, but I’m not going to risk death and the health of those around me in order to watch it before it’s considerably safer to do so.
