  1. Just want to correct you here, the mafia are actually speaking Polish in those rare words they're saying, not Russian. I know because I speak Polish decently well. And also the actor is Polish. I liked this, Jeremy Renner is all right, Hailee Steinfeld is crushing it as usual. She's so good, how does she do it? Like her role isn't even that good to begin with, but she manages to lift any role to a higher status. Every time. I don't know where this will land ultimately but right now I think it's right in the middle in terms of MCU Disney+ shows quality. Has lots of
  2. Oh yeah the variance. Indeed it's very high. Thanks
  3. What do you mean 90 to 10? The current score is 45 critics score, 8.5 user score. Let's say it started with 90 critics score, where does that 10 come into play?
  4. My hype for this is considerable because Hailee Steinfeld is an absolutely amazing actress and isn't just popular because she's famous to begin with. It's a secret that everybody who watched both TRUE GRIT and THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN are in on.
  5. Inject new big-budget fantasy directly into my veins please. Always. Will likely watch this soon. I have no idea what it is or what it is about except magic, medieval stuff, and costumes and weird werewolf-like monsters. Love Rosamund Pike because who doesn't. I hope it's good
  6. Amazing week-end, loving the numbers across the board Legs are back on the menu boys!!
  7. as usual people doom and gloom at reshoots when we have literally no idea why they have been ordered, what they are fixing or adding, and whether it was (partially) planned or not. The only thing that matters in a movie is the end result, so just please stop with the baseless rumors when you know nothing of how movies are actually made, especially big studio tentpole movies like this. It's nothing more than guesswork at this point and anyone claiming otherwise is full of themselves.
  8. Just gotta say that I love that marvel are finally releasing their movies in Imax format. It was a long time coming and many were losing out hope after a decade of seeing IMAX-sequences never making it to the small screen. Well the wait is over. Might have to binge watch a few MCU movies soon lmao The ones that benefit the most are the last 2 avengers movies (100% IMAX A/R), Guardians of the Galaxy, Shang-Chi (100% IMAX A/R), and maybe like Captain Marvel or something
  9. A clear step down from the 1st installment but still decent. This movie suffers hard from Prequel Syndrome, where the story is limited in scope and possibility by what comes after. The self-contained part of the story was great, it's what comes after that's the problem. The ending montage, while fun, reeks of "hmm here is where the characters need to be so this has to happen." It also seemed to be aimed at American audiences a bit too much, basing the Monsters school system fully on America and all. For non-Americans, the "college life" reality in the movie doesn'
  10. Starting a sort of Pixar marathon but I'm gonna skip a few that I've already seen way too many times, like the Toy Story movies and Finding Nemo. So it's more like a random Pixar binge watch due to the fact that I have an active Disney+ subscription. Kicking it off with this one what I liked the most about this movie were the themes and the great characterization of both the protagonists and villain. It's a fun movie with lots of heart and imaginative sequences. It tricks you into forgetting that it's quite disturbing that the (likable) protagonist is in fac
  11. I write fics too, I'm not even a woman nor asian but she's such an inspiration for writers She just does and says things without giving a fuck about what people think, but contrary to most people doing that (they're assholes), she's so genuine and kind and intelligent A role model for those who know where to look

  13. Didn't seem to stop people from flocking to see the Avengers movies in record numbers. They are basically the same length. There is something else at work here. The movie just doesn't seem to appeal to families at all.
  14. The subject matter might be too "grand" for parents who think their children might be bored with it Clearly the marketing doesn't convey this movie as a family movie at all because they're straight up deserting the movie
  15. just gonna jump in and say that I legitimately don't understand the abysmal reviews this movie is getting. Lukewarm I can see it, it's a morally complex slow-burn movie that's not for everyone, but being straight-up murdered on RT like it's an abandoned Roland Emmerich's Assistant Director-Directed disaster movie without any disaster scenes in it? oh hell no That is all
  16. Yeah at this point my appreciation of each new marvel release since Endgame seems to be inversely correlated with their respective critics score
  17. Saw Eternals in theaters today, expecting an entertaining train wreck... Yet I loved mostly everything about this film and am in disbelief at the reviews it's getting so far. Like this is is somehow the worst MCU ever? Wow not by a longshot IMO! At the very very least it's trying to be something and doesn't try to be something it's not, which is more than I can say for 50% of MCU movies. I reviewed it in the review forum but... Leaving the theater I just couldn't wrap my head around this movie being the worst-reviewed out of their 24 movies so far. To be fair it's the reason my but
  18. I love mostly everything about this film and am in disbelief at the reviews it's getting so far. Like this is is somehow the worst MCU ever? Wow not by a longshot IMO! I want Marvel to make more cosmic stuff now more than ever. This was absolutely amazing! I loved the moral dilemma that the situation posed, Icarus was an excellent, conflicted villain who struggles with his own purpose vs the grand scheme of things. Both sides of the story are relatable, there are no real "villains", even the deviants are just fighting for their survival, it's entirely morally grey and I
  19. That's quite informative, thank you. By the way Carina Lau (regardless of her political stance) is an amazing actress and each movie I watch I get to like her more than the last. Can't really blame the actors for not standing up to the CCP though. The alternative is, best case, fading into obscurity and maybe finding a career outside of China, and worst case, get canceled utterly and possibly have worse repercussions to yourself or your family. Or have your name scrubbed from the Internet. Or get arrested.
  20. So movies that got PA releases kinda underperformed and theater-exclusives are doing great. I think there's a message in there somewhere.... Executives: "Nope, can't find it!"
