  1. The list has been updated to reflect the addition of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Saturday Night Live has been removed from the list.
  2. It’s not going to do the numbers that blockbuster films have done pre-pandemic. I don’t see Spider-Man grossing $400 million domestically.
  3. The bottom line is this will be the first true mega-blockbuster since the pandemic began. It could be the movie that saves the theatrical experience. I do not know what its box office will ultimately be, but it will rival some of the highest grossing blockbusters in history.
  4. They do, despite the law being crystal clear. There is no ambiguity here. Marvel owns the characters and stories, and Disney owns Marvel.
  5. I can’t imagine why not. It is free if you already subscribe to HBO, and everyone needed HBO to watch Game of Thrones.
  6. It’s tough to justify paying for Crying Macho when it is free on HBOmax.
  7. The math doesn’t add up to me either. The 1980’s created new revenue streams for films. Home video sales were making studios lots of money. They turned films that were failures at the BO into successes, and made blockbusters even more successful. Then came cable television, which was an additional revenue stream. Home video converted into DVDs and Blu Rays. Now, DVD sales have almost evaporated and there is cord cutting with cable. Therefore, streaming services should cover some of the lost revenue from those avenues. If a studio skips theatrical altogether to put a movie
  8. Hopefully this great run at the BO continues and this ends the day and date release argument.
  9. I cant’t think of more than 3 movies for each of those directors that would make a top 10 list all-time. You could say 4 for Cameron if you are a massive original Terminator fan, but to say it’s top 10 all-time seems a stretch.
  10. This is a big win for Disney and an even bigger win for the theatrical movie-going experience. It’s nice to see the box office having a good weekend.
  11. This film is doing well. It is definitely a well-deserved result.
  12. It’s really hard to believe I have been here for over 9 years.
  13. Back when I wrote the quoted post, I did not know that Fox only financed the first Star Wars movie, and that the sequels and prequels were financed by George Lucas through Lucasfilm.
  14. Numbers 36-40 were definitely not my cup of tea. I’ll take Disney’s Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians over any of those movies…or all of those movies combined.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. My Vote: 1. Back to the Future 2. Star Wars 3. Forrest Gump 4. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark 5. Rocky 6. Superman 7. The Karate Kid (1984) 8. Gone with the Wind 9. Goldfinger 10. Terminator 2: Judgment Day 11. Robocop 12. Batman (1989) 13. Captain America: The First Avenger 14. Star Wars Episode V: The Empires Strikes Back 15. Marvel’s The Avengers 16. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves 17. Avengers: Infinity War 18. Rambo 19. T
  19. My vote: 1. Peter Pan 2. 101 Dalmatians 3. Pinocchio 4. Aladdin 5. Robin Hood (Disney) 6. The Nightmare Before Christmas 7. Beauty and the Beast 8. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh 9. Dumbo 10. Fun and Fancy Free 11. Ducktales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp 12. Cinderella 13. Tangled 14. Lady and the Tramp 15. Sleeping Beauty 16. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 17. The Princess and the Frog 18. Wreck-It Ralph 19. The
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
