  1. The first Men In Black movie without Will Smith was not going to have the same success as previous movies unfortunately. I also wonder if they just titled it MIB 4 instead of international would it have made a difference. After reading all that behind the scenes production drama on this movie it's a wonder it didn't turn out worse. Poor Sony.
  2. This movie is just alright. As someone who enjoyed MIB 3 I was cautiously optimistic about this movie, but the trailers did little to sell me on it. The MIB movies were never all that serious, but this one feels the most lax out of them all. I liked the idea of Tessa Thompson character but the payoff isn't all that great. Chris Hemsworth is a little too jokey for my tastes but there are occasional amusing moments from him. Overall I felt like this movie would have worked better as a limited series run on a streaming service(since everybody is getting one these days). There was an MIB cartoon series in the late 90's which I quite enjoyed, maybe someday they'll make a continuation for that. This franchise would be better served on the small screen, where they could flesh out some ideas more. C
  3. You have a valid point, but regardless Tsujihara should have known better, he seemed to think a little to highly of her in my opinion. To not even assign a co-writer to work with a first-time screenwriter Rowling on these movies from the jump is baffling to me. I wish good luck to the new CEO Ann Sarnoff, between this and the DCEU she will certainly have some work to do.
  4. It was Tsujihara's idea and now that he's gone this series wont be as high as a priority as he made it to be at the studio, but I highly doubt WB would just cancel this series outright because of a misstep. Course correction/change is possible, you don't have to like it but it can certainly be done.
  5. I kinda sorta liked parts of the last movie, I cannot really argue with the points made in this video.
  6. This is correct. I admit for a while I would only look at the percentages, until I realized that the average rating is the real way to gauge the critical reception of a movie. Imdb is better in that regard in that it's primarily an average rating system instead of a percentage one.
  7. Its annoying how Warner Brothers has mishandled their franchises lately. With this one in particular people wanted to blame it all on Rowling because she's the writer but WB should not have put her in that position in the first place. I think Kevin Tsujihara is also partly to blame for the lackluster of these movies thus far, as Rowling has credited him with getting the Fantastic Beasts franchise up and running in addition to getting her on board to directly write the scripts. I find it no strange coincidence that soon after he stepped down as CEO WB delayed the filming and moved the release date of the third movie to the tail end of 2021. Mistakes seemed to be getting corrected, hopefully the right ones.
  8. The second movie made decent money, a disappointment but not a total flop (financially). If WB continued on with the DCEU after numerous failures than its not surprising they'd try and salvage these movies the best they can, there's still money to be made off these despite a lackluster second movie.
  9. I think they will too. There needs to be more innovation in this franchise if they want to stay alive and keeping Yates on just because he did the last few Potter movies is not a foolproof strategy imo. More of the same is not whats needed here and WB is gonna have to swallow their pride and try to course correct the best they can, which they seem to be doing with the DCEU at the moment so all is not lost yet.
  10. I rather enjoyed the Men in Black series thus far, but the trailers for this one just aren't doing it for me. It's looks too "shiny" to me, too much CGI used for the aliens and weapons. The first 3 movies mostly used practical effects and most of the aliens were handmade by using extensive makeup, and suits, where in these trailers all the aliens look too computer generated/cartoony. Besides the chemistry between Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson this movie looks like it's gonna be a dud, below 60% on rotten tomatoes. It might do okay at the box office though, ultimately this movie feels like it will be inconsequential.
  11. Literally nobody is confirmed to return for the third movie yet, filming wont even begin until next year. This is such a pointless non-story. I highly doubt he'll be let go, and Colin Farrell aint coming back, so get over it.
  12. My tin-foil-hat theory is that with Kevin Tsujihara gone, former WB CEO who was the one to get this franchise up and running and who got Rowling on board, WB decided to not make this franchise as much as a priority as he did and thus this delay is them casually pushing it off to the side in favor of other projects. My hope is that they are also considering getting a new director for the third movie because that is definitely needed and could possible reignite some lost interest and bring in new creativity.
  13. If any new director were to come on to do one of those movies i'd imagine it would be simply because they love Harry Potter and would like a chance to work with JK Rowling. If a new director was brought in I doubt it would be a big name one, nor should it be.
  14. In order for Depp to have a comeback he would need to have already been gone for a while, would he not? At the moment he’s just kinda there, not entirely wanted but not hated by everybody. It seems that there was a fair amount of people who liked his performance in the recent Fantastic Beasts movie so he’s definitely sticking around for those, he’s also starring in an upcoming movie called Waiting for the Barbarians alongside Robert Pattinson. I’m kinda glad Pirates is moving on without him, he needs to break away from that role anyway.
