  1. I am sure that this lawsuit will settle out of court. However, Disney does not need the bad publicity. They should silently deal with this so it goes away.
  2. The thing about a potential A24 sale is that the studio does not have a big back catalogue, so it is not really worth a lot. Forget about the Marvel and Lucasfilm sales to Disney. Look at the Dreamworks Animation sale to Universal. Dreamworks Animation had a bigger back catalogue and was making higher grossing films. The MGM sale to Amazon (which is still pending) was a clear over-bid, but MGM has a big catalogue post May-86 films, UA films, and Orion’s film catalogue. MGM has real value. A24 does not bring enough value to the table to justify its price tag.
  3. Great to see Captain America: TFA make the list. Silvestri is always an under-appreciated composer on this board and on these lists. It’s great to see him make the list multiple times so far.

  6. I remember arguing with GiantCalBears, in 2015 when Avengers: Age of Ultron was released, that Marvel superheroes would have more staying power than Harry Potter. Of course I heard his usual nonsense about how I didn't know what I was talking about and Harry Potter will still be relevant for generations as opposed to Marvel characters. It's over 5 years later, and the list below pretty much confirms I was right. https://variety.com/2020/film/news/mandalorian-avengers-stranger-things-best-shows-1234835807/ Here are the top 20 entertainment franchises, according to NRG.
  7. My Vote: Casablanca Back to the Future Part II Forrest Gump The Usual Suspects Star Wars: Episode VI- Return of the Jedi Back to the Future Gone With The Wind It’s a Wonderful Life L.A. Confidential My Cousin Vinnie Memento Unforgiven Goodfellas
  8. I think it’s a smart move. The fanboy wars thread was supposed to be a thread to let people argue about their favorite franchises. However, it became a place for personal attacks. I got caught up in retaliating at times when I was insulted, and the mods did what they felt they had to do because they felt I stepped out of line when retaliating, and I completely understand that and hold no ill will. However, the environment that the fanboy wars thread encouraged is what led to those situations. I really don’t post here much anymore as a result. This website used to be about arguing
  9. On this website, it didn’t start with MCU fans. In 2012, there were very few MCU fans here, and a lot of Nolan/DC fans. The Nolan/DC fans were very loud. The success of The Avengers changed the dynamic, and it has evolved into what it is today. When people say MCU fans started this whole thing, it shows that those people just weren’t around when it all really started . . . at least for this site.
  10. Shawn MR used to say that the general rule is that a film is profitable if it grosses between 2- 2.5 times its budget. That’s the best rule of thumb that we have.
  11. It is the reason behind it. His message wasn’t really what people interpreted it to be.
  12. Whining that you can’t get the big budget that you want for your movie is not a legitimate issue. It’s being unrealistic. And the people that support that stance are mostly haters (and some fanboys). Glad we agree that I am right. But getting back on-topic, that has nothing to do with James Cameron. He gets big budgets because his movies make big money.
  13. You can’t compare Scorsese to Cameron. Scorsese is whiny because his movies do not justify the big budgets that he wants for them. So he acts like a whiny baby, and fanboys and haters eat it up. James Cameron is not whiny at all. His movies get the big budgets that he asks for because they make big money at the box office. James Cameron has absolutely nothing to whine about, and he shouldn’t be lumped in with Scorsese.
