  1. Part of Netflix’s model is not spending 70-100m on marketing for a theatrical release.
  2. The original WSS is dated in terms of actors (ages, nationalities) so presumably this will be an upgrade in that regard. But the rest — yeesh.
  3. Warners next Sunday: “We’re thrilled to report that In The Heights has grossed over $40m in its first 11 days at the box office. It’s surpassed all our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with its performance.”
  4. TIL this movie existed… and against my better judgment it looks fun. 😂
  5. Oh man, that’s a bummer. Best wishes to him and his family. I feel like I’ve listened to him and Kruk for like a billion years.
  6. Been awhile since I had much of anything to contribute to this thread. Today I watched FURIE, sort of a gender-flipped Vietnamese TAKEN (it’s better, though). The story’s super basic but it’s still a lot of fun if you like martial arts thrillers. And it stars Rose Tico’s older sister too!
  7. Oh yes, I remember reading this. It’s a great piece. DO NOT READ IT @CJohn UNTIL YOU’RE FINISHED WITH THE SHOW
  8. Yes, it was originally gonna be 16, then the strike happened and they decided to condense it a bit.
  9. Sort of an impossible task to keep a crazy serialized story going without knowing how long you have to finish. 😂 (Soap operas aside, I suppose.) 😂
  10. I forget if that was specifically the moment, but it was sometime during the third season, yeah.
  11. They didn’t really have a timeline at the outset. The pilot was its own standalone thing and broader decisions about the ongoing stories were developed much later. I guess they could’ve recast him but that would’ve felt weird too.
  12. ^^ They don’t have any way to verify. So immunocompromised folks won’t go to the movies (or shouldn’t), and parents of younger kids might be a little leery of it too.
  13. Given the movies studios make, do we really want that soft power still projected around the world?
  14. I think the second half of CRYSTAL is mostly a mess, but the fridge was fun, I never had a problem with it.
