  1. THE SECOND QUARTER (PART ONE) Totem of the Elders Year 6's Shiverin' Gulch is not seeing a direct sequel, at least not right away, but it is seeing a spin-off directed by none other than Mad Max: Fury Road's George Miller, which if nothing else should raise a few eyebrows. What should also raise a few eyebrows is that this spin-off isn't even connected to Gulch outside of being set in the same universe, which in my opinion is a bit of a bold gamble when you've only had one film to establish the "universe" thus far. Is being ahead of the curve the right move, or is Blank

  2. THE SECOND QUARTER (PART TWO) Meeka As the old saying that I just made up goes, it's a fool's game underestimating Endless Animation. The studio has churned out a lot of big hits over its existence, from the likes of Medusa, to Can You Imagine?, to Squirrel Girl, to what's unequivocally its magnum opus, Gateways. Their latest entry, Meeka, has a lot going for it on paper, from an all-African american cast to the massive scope of its fantasy premise. But is it enough? Meeka is the only film in the early summer that's aimed squarely at families, at least for t

  8. Certified fresh. TOMATOMETER 89% Average Rating: 7.2/10 Reviews Counted: 81 Fresh: 72 Rotten: 9 Critics Consensus: John Wick: Chapter 2 does what a sequel should -- which in this case means doubling down on the non-stop, thrillingly choreographed action that made its predecessor so much fun.

  9. Oh fuck that shit. And on the exact day we were talking about this? Keanu, you should know better. Doesn't change the fact that Megaton's non-Neeson films are just as sloppily edited, though.

  10. Out of likes, but I normally would be giving one to both of these. Very exciting weekend indeed. To be honest considering 50 Shades should be a massive pre-seller for tickets (and nothing to discredit the massive amounts it has already sold) this data might not bode well for 40M. Or it just means JW2 is indeed another Pitch Perfect 2

  11. This has become the go-to video for fast cutting. All thanks to Neeson being too old to actually jump the fence (and also because the cuts don't logically follow one another)

  13. Saw this tonight. Not a huge fan of the franchise, but I enjoy them for the most part. I really have to give this one credit for its efficiency; it starts out moving and never stops. The CGI is also a lot better here than in the previous installments. Not great, but not embarrassingly bad like it has been in the past. I would agree that this is the best in the franchise, so if you like the others, you'll probably like this. Don't see it in 3D though. Absolutely terrible post-conversion.

  14. Movies in which stuntmen died or were seriously injured sometimes use the deaths in their marketing. I can remember one movie long ago that had trailers touting the death of a stuntman in an underwater sequence. That horrified me as a kid, but plenty of others were thrilled for whatever reason. You can bet that no studio would ever brag that animals died on set for fear of eliciting a violent reaction from the public. The sad truth is that many people value the lives of animals far more than those of their fellow humans.

  15. Just for the sake of argument here.... When stuntmen die making a movie nobody cares, The Dark Knight and Resident Evil 6 should have been Boycotted THEY KILLED A FUCKING PERSON! A HUMAN! 37 animals were KILLED making the Hobbit, yet nobody cares. But one dog doesn't wanna get wet it means boycott?

  16. Rated 1/10 on imdb, lol. Hell, even Uwe Boll's movies are rated higher than that. That's really not a good sign. The movie is doomed, that's a fact. People are angry, another fact. The video was edited ( I'm not sure about what happened between the dog being afraid of the water and then leaving the water ). Is is the same dog? What happened? We don't know and we never will, probably.

  18. Yes, nobody should assume that the posters in this thread crying foul about TMZ or otherwise defending Universal/Amblin represent what's happening in the real world. Just a quick glance at Facebook and Twitter makes it clear that the public reaction as of now is massively negative towards the film and its makers.

  20. Why is there the assumption that the Marketing costs were that high? I mean, really, this was not heavily marketed. A few targeted ads but this did not get some massive marketing campaign that cost $20m. If there was an idea to extended the Underworld saga beyond Kate they've left it open to wholly recast her daughter. Cast the right up and coming actress and you have some chance, some, or doing a soft reboot of the saga. Wrap up Kate's story and move forward, or at least leave it open to move on with another lead. The fact it cost so much less and will do at/over $10

  21. I don't think a sequel will happen, they are disappointed a bit and a 6th would decrease from this no doubt , no reason to assume it would increase. Its not worth the investment, put out another box set, call it a day. I mean who knows what will happen in 5/6 years but this franchise has stalled, if this did the same numbers as Awakening I bet they would have had a 6th film ready to go basically, but now not so much.

  22. Calling this the best one to date is hardly a big compliment or high praise since it's mainly been a subgenre of box office poison and cinematic trash.

  23. Seeing this tonight with two friends. I've never played the game before and don't even know what it's about. One of my friends works with me and loves movies like me, but doesn't play video games in general (like me) and my other friend is that "popular kid who is secretly a huge Assassin's Creed fan"

  24. I seriously have no idea what to say to any of that, the score is bombastic, maybe it's not subtle but it feels big to me, very catchy, legit good, I don't care if it doesn't qualify as "movie" score for some snobs out there, what I care about is "is it memorable?", "does it fit the film?". About the film, I probably didn't question the logic of certain things, I've played AC 1, 2, Brotherhood and stopped there because it was just the same thing after and after in different time periods, and the movie feels to me like it reproduces faithfully that universe. Is it dumb? Not any dum

  25. I think Batfleck is hilarious and all but the idea that so many people think he was legitimately good in that movie/role is so bewildering to me.

  26. Ben is a solid actor, his latest performances have been very well received, he also got a lot of love for Hollywoodland awards wise. He's never been better imo. Then again, I think it's okay to admit that he doesn't as expressive a face as his brother Casey for example. It's kind of unfair that way, because at the end of the day, you can be a great actor, but you're always be limited by your physical appearance. The Town was also one of his best performances, I only saw two reviews saying his performance in LBN is just fine, it's also possible that his performance can suffer when

  27. Does it matter? Yes. But it's not night and day. In other words, i think Warcraft would have made more than $1.7m had it come out yesterday.

  29. Love this shot. Religion encapsulated in one visual analogy. I don't know how people can be meh about this. The cinematography looks gorgeous and the imagery is powerful. Scorsese channeling his inner Kurosawa. That trailer is already more interesting than the full length of Wolf Of Wall Street.

  32. Not impressed to be honest but this is not my type of a movie so... Not a fan of Portuguese accents at all. Either go full Tarantino and have them speak Portuguese or just drop it. Especially since the Japanese guy speaks with perfect Queen's English not with Japanese-flavored one. Neeson obviously has a small role as rumored. Trailer is a bit on torture porn side. Don't see commercial prospect. As already pointed out in other posts, if this had Leo than yes but no Leo, no boxoffice. Driver's ears, though. May be the real money shot

  33. HOLYYYYYYY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!! That was beautiful,engaging,emotional as fuck!!!!!! It was totatllyyy worth the waittttttt! Scorsese is gonna deliver hard this time! I'm sure on Andrew... Cast seems so synced in this! Even though the material of this film is less commercial the trailer made sure giving it a high commercial look. It will make its impact.
