  1. I had never heard that mutation of the original rumor before. The Internet really is one giant game of telephone.
  2. She’s not playing a 10-year-old. She’s supposed to be starting high school. I agree with everything else you said, though.
  3. Are you only referring to IMAX 3D shows? Because I see plenty of IMAX 2D showings at my local IMAX theaters (AMC Metreon and Regal Hacienda Crossings, plus the LieMAX at AMC Bay Street) on Fandango and those are premium-priced too. Do the theaters you mentioned have IMAX 2D showings too? And is there really that much a price difference between IMAX 2D and IMAX 3D? I’m checking and all my local theaters only charge $1 more for IMAX 3D than IMAX 2D. 3D is on the wane in North America, and IMAX specifically said a couple years ago that they were re-emphasizing 2D due to customer and t
  4. Well, Nolan’s right on schedule for another time-and/or-reality-bending movie. Inception was in 2010, and Memento was in 2000.
  5. I don’t have a definitive, numbered list, so I will unfortunately have to pass. I had just wanted to share some of the ones I enjoy.
  6. When insecure geeks are mad at you because they don’t like the idea of you playing a superhero, you’re only as good as your worst role. Recall how when the knives came out for Batfleck, people kept talking about Daredevil as if it was still relevant. Or how Robert Pattinson doesn’t deserve to be Batman in the eyes of some just because he was in Twilight. And I’m pretty sure Chris Evans caught shit for Fantastic Four when he was announced, too.
  7. Ewan did a good job, even if he was handicapped by the directing. SLJ made do with what he had, and I commend him for being allowed/able to play against type even if the result is dull. Christopher Lee as Count Dooku could be the biggest disappointment, IMO. He acts like he’s sleepwalking, a complete 180 from the performance Peter Jackson was able to get out of him as Saruman. This has to be Lucas’ fault, you can’t put it down to age when he had just knocked it out of the park for another director. (Of course, he then proceeded to be just as lethargic as Saruman in the Hobbit movie
  8. Oh jeez, the fallout from that would be just as much “fun” to hear as the angry male complaints now... We’ll know when equality is achieved not just when female protagonists are as common as male ones, but also when killing off a female protagonist in a heroic sacrifice the same way as a male protagonist no longer generates a hundred think pieces about what negative effect it has for women in fiction.
  9. Yeah, I never heard anything real saying Chris was being dropped. Yet people were already repeating it as if it weren’t just conjecture within hours, maybe even minutes, of the announcement, despite him being right there up on the stage!
  10. Yes 3000. So glad Disney admitted they made a mistake and hired him back. I am willing to wait as long as it takes for Gunn to deliver GOTG3. Pivoting back to Eternals, my point is that the current appeal of the various characters Marvel has adapted is often (nay, mostly) down to things introduced in the movies themselves. It can be the actor/actress/portrayal of the character. It can be the filmmaker’s idiosyncrasies and what they bring to the movie. It’s never just the source material in and of itself. That’s one of the things Feige and his creative team understand, a
  11. That last part was entirely invented by James Gunn. The thing you consider to make them stand out was introduced in the movie. For a fair comparison, you have to compare Eternals with GOTG’s standing pre-movie. I get your Percy Jackson comparison, I get that they’re not aliens, but as far as pre-movie awareness they are on relatively equal footing.
  12. The biggest difference between this and Solo, besides the fact that the character will be played by the originator of the role, is that I actually do want to see this. At no point, pre- or post-Last Jedi (which I did not hate, either), did I ever actually have a desire to eventually see Solo when it came out. I wasn’t even enthusiastic when Lord and Miller were still on board.
  13. I love this title. It belongs on a 1960s Marvel comic book cover, and I believe that Stan Lee is smilin’ down from that big bullpen in the sky at how audacious it is. Face front, true believers! Excelsior! Can someone correct the thread title so that it accurately says “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”?
  14. Can you remind me who? I remember being there but I can’t remember who it was. (Was it BKB, like with Jurassic World later that summer? Or was it the GiantCalBears person @Walt Disney referred to?)
  15. I’d say something to celebrate this collective accomplishment, this collective victory, but it would be an Endgame spoiler and I don’t want to get banned. But you probably know what quote it is.
