  2. 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 O

  3. Week 25 19-25 September 2020 Movies Blade Runner 2049: This film is a beauty. Liked it much better than the first one. 7/10. Enemy: I thought this is weakest of Denis from the reception, but I absolutely loved it. Second fav after Prisoners. 8/10. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil: Gave it a chance, not unwatchable. 3/10. Psycho: So I started Hitchcock films, this was awesome. Though the final twist was easy to guess due to amount of films made on multiple personality disorder in past, but I am sure, back then it would have been pretty novel. 8/10. TV Th

  4. final estimates a bit higher (or a lot higher, for Ooops!2); Tenet now with an estimated 15% increase. On another note, in today's local paper there were interviews with local cinema mangers, one from the bigger multiplex in town (2020 sales estimated down 60%), one from the arthouse (only 25% of usual capacity sold) - both hope for public help https://www.tt.com/artikel/17373051/tiroler-kinos-vor-ungewisser-zukunft-hoffnungstraeger-james-bond The big problem is not only the spring lockdown and seating restrictions, the big problem is the absence of blockbuster rel

  5. I think my main problem with the Dune trailer is one that has plagued a lot of recent underperforming sci-fi blockbusters; it already expects the audience to know and care about the plot, world, and characters of the property it's adapting. Time and again, studios (especially this one) keep mistaking the heaps of attention and praise they get from geeks and stans for something that will translate into significant real world numbers. It rarely does.

  7. The adult storylines are what keep me interested. I’m ridiculously invested in Daniel and Johnny hopefully becoming friends. The episode in season 1 where they go for drinks and the double date restaurant episode in season 2 were both joyous. Watching them bounce off each other is great. I get why the kids are there (and the school fight in season 2 was great), but it’s all about the adults for me.

  8. https://www.indiewire.com/2020/09/the-french-dispatch-oscars-2021-1234588501/ Early word that The French Dispatch might not come out in time for the deadline and will be saved for a potential Cannes debut. Man, the Comedy/Musical category at the Globes this year became really empty these past few days if so. Congrats to Ryan Murphy and Netflix, I guess?

  9. I got Disney Plus yesterday as I wanted to watch one of the marvel films. This service is garbage. How does it have 60 million subscribers?! There's literally no content. It splits into four sections "Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars". Like you go into the Star Wars section and you scroll for 2 seconds and it's reached the Making-Of featurettes. It's embarrassing. Also do other people find that it stutters a lot? The video and audio stutter frequently. Really great way of breaking your immersion when you're trying to watch a movie. None of the other streaming service apps on my TV

  10. Just got out from a 7 PM screening (which was sold-out...surprised by that) Quick thoughts for now: 1). Blake Lively is a bad ass. She's everything and more in this movie. A career defining performance from her for sure. She looks fantastic in the film and really delivers a killer performance. 2). Best supporting actor needs to go to that damn seagull. 3). This is one of the best JCS films ever. Amazing visually and the way the tension builds up throughout the film is something else. 4). I had a lot of anxiety watching the film. Lastly, its a g

  12. "That is definitely bigger than the last one" Hey. They stole that line from me. I always hear that! Other than that, I like it. The movie looks good to me. For now, it is my most anticipated blockbuster of 2016

  13. Whenever Emmerich is not destroying cities, his character driven scenes tend to look visually realllllllly cheap soap operas, always very flat, really awful lighting. Bay movies have predominantly two colors: teal and orange, the color grading is pukeable overblown and he overcrowds every shot with tons and tons of moving objects. Snyder on other hand is a composition master.

  14. I expected this. It is the truth. For Tom Hardy alone it is worth seeing it, tho. He sure makes me all hot and bothered. What was the last time you liked or hyperventilated over a non-Tom Hardy movie?

  15. The Patriot is Emmerich's best! Even John Williams was clowning all other composers with flute badassery We need The Patriot: Resurgence. 35 years later, Mel Gibson returns to hunt down redcoats in the War of 1812 with Tcheky Karyo

  16. There's a whole layer there that you didn't get. That's fine, I know GDT is a little weird and goofy, and a lot of the fun is him playing around in the fringes of the on-screen universe. I thought stuff like the Newton's Cradle gag was funnier and more clever than anything I can think of in an Emmerich movie.

  17. For me, it just immersed itself so much in it's world, that I caught was up in whatever was happening on the screen. That's good filmmaking and world-building. It wasn't a perfect film, but it was so much fun. Of course, I'm not here to debate Pacific Rim again, I just really liked it, and I think most people on this forum are probably already familiar with that, so yeah.

  18. Other than the Woody Harrelson conspiracy character (who gets killed off in a hilarious death scenes), everybody else seems to be taking themselves way too "literally", for such a stupid film. It's tedious.

  20. The concept is just as silly as all of them. However, it's executed far more smartly, and with more wit and style to boot.

  28. Meant skyscrapers (and generally every building or human construction that just would be too damn big to be blown up like air carriers in Transformers for exemple) that you can see destroyed in details thanx to modern CGI since 2012, Avengers, Man of Steel, Into the Storm, San Andreas, Pacific Rim, Transfomers 3&4 etc, just have a look at the videos I posted you ll see thr evolution of destruction porn in movies since T2. I would say Year One of D Porn is Independence Day, it set the bar & scale, all other films were gonna be compared to it afterwards. And where exactly

  30. A lot of 2016 movies haven't "shown up" yet : X-Men Apocalypse, Star Trek Beyond, this... They'll come in December I think (trailers with Star Wars ? there won't be enough time before the movie for all the movies that want to be there). You underestimate how much time theaters are willing to give. They know ain't nobody going to be walking out of that movie. Would definitely make the most sense for the first teaser for this

  33. Independence day is the definition of a crowd pleasing summer blockbuster. If the trailer is great, this film has potential to be big Imo. It's got to feel like an ID4 sequel though rather than just another alien invasion pic. In all honesty I'm expecting this to be bad given Liam Hemsworth landed the role, he doesn't inspire much confidence.
