  1. Holy shit! Those Bad Boys previews. A bunch of us have been commenting on how surprisingly good the movie looks, how it could surprise etc etc. Never did I expect THIS! As a box office fan I'm so thrilled about this! Also happy for Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and Sony.
  2. I don't know about black and white but I think fans just want a good Star Wars movie without the edgy, modern "new direction" stuff. You can go in a new direction story-wise - which I think fans and the GA are more than open to - but still keep with the general tone and style of Star Wars. Rian Johnson did not necessarily make a bad movie in TLJ. He just tried to make a Star Wars movie something else. complete with real-world politics (Yes I know that's always been prevalent in Star Wars, but not to the "in-your-face" degree TLJ was) and the subvert expectations trope. The prequels may have a lot of their own issues, but at least all George Lucas tried to do at the end of the day was build a bigger galaxy. In other words, world build. I would describe TLJ as hipster Star Wars for people who don't have much interest in the lore and just want to see their own world reflected back at them, but obviously set within the world of Star Wars.
  3. Yeah but.....what else is new? I'm not saying it's right, or defending it, but I feel like sometimes people think they're a unique kind of victim. I mean, we're all of us at one point - male, female, white, black, gay, straight - victims of online hate and abuse. Maybe not all of us, but you get the point. I feel like, yeah, the world is a shitty place with some shitty people, we don't have to start talking like it's a new phenomenon that someone, or a certain demographic, has had something unjust or downright nasty done to them. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. At the end of the day I'm not saying I don't feel bad for her. It's just not news to me whatsoever.
  4. Yeah it's odd. For me it was a super cool experience and that's really what it's all about (besides the filmmakers' own sense of achievement and all that stuff).
  5. Won't be able to see this until next weekend. Looking forward to it though!
  6. I have nothing against indie films whatsoever, but God I love this! Another Hollywood realist. Respect.
  7. The Numbers and BOP both report that this will release in roughly 2,500 theatres as the main headliner of the weekend (The Gentlemen is getting approx. 2,000 theatres). As I mentioned one post above it looks like those two are the only wide debuts for the weekend.
  8. Yeah, that's pretty much been my experience too. I know I keep on saying the same thing, but I'm just so thrilled with the reactions to this movie. Seems universally positive. January may have started with some absolute duds, but it looks like we're going to get some gems too.
  9. Do yourself a favour and don't give the media so much credit. That kind of crap is hack material.
  10. Funny you say that. I thought Renner's Hansel and Gretel was beyond stupid. This movie might be bad too but I just dig the aesthetic and tone more.
  11. I'm really, really curious to see how this "11th hour" marketing campaign works out for BoP and WB. Specifically referring to the late 2nd trailer and ticket drop date. Maybe the studio knows there won't necessarily be a ton of frontloaded fan rush and hence the optics would almost be better with tickets dropping late in the game. Or maybe it's not even about optics. Maybe they just simply feel it's not necessary to release them any earlier.
  12. You're right that nothing is really standing out but it's still probably going to be the no-brainer choice: Birds of Prey.
  13. @dudalb brings up a good point though. This movie will take place after Endgame, aka a point in time when there are no infinity stones. The eye of Agamotto is pretty much useless now.
