  1. If this underperforms we're gonna be pretty close into verifying that @That One Guy is the one true prophet. I didn't think they could screw up Dumbo after they nailed his visuals, yet I can still taste ashes in my mouth. I'm not sure what to expect from Aladdin. Disney front-loading? Sure. But this should be way bigger than Dumbo, just how badly would they have to screw this up? Right now Jaffar looks like the weakest link yet I won't be surprised if he somehow turns out to be the redeeming quality, looking at how misleading Disney trailers have been (be it on purpose, or not).
  2. Considering how amazing she looked there, to me she's the biggest waste of talent and physicallity in this CBM craze. If she's not picked for something soon it'll be a pity, fingers crossed now that Disney grabbed the FOX characters.
  3. It's just troll bait, there's little comparison to be made. Alita didn't have an IP with millions of hardcore fans, made twice as much dom and around 2/3 the Chinese BO that Warcraft did. Quality-wise it's arguably much much better. Even people that regularly come here to troll use better comparisons. I think The Edge of Tomorrow is one of the better ones. But Alita is still a bit of a unique case of its own.
  4. I doubt Rodriguez would've left a lot of film on the floor. From what I read there was only a "training" scene that wasn't included, but is in the novel version. And it really doesn't add much to the film other than a midpoint between Alita learning to motorball, into quickly becoming an adept at it. But yeah, it's exciting that the Bluray release is going to be pretty packed. Though the release would've been nicer a bit sooner.

    Welp, just saw it. I can honestly say that people saying the narrative is all over the place and scenes are senselessly stitched together are full of shit. It all hinges on the villain choosing for more than just revenge and stubbornly expecting things to go her way by the end, but it's all perfectly connected from A to B, B to C and so on. That part is solid, f*ck people that can't follow a narrative that requires you to think about why each character does what and fault the movie for not spoon feeding it to them. Sadly that's my best defense for this movie, haha. The gore and violence exceeds it's welcome, jokes don't land. Certain scenes look good but others seem cheap. Acting overall is alright. The dialogue, if it weren't for soooo many bad jokes, would actually be solid. The ending, pretty unsatisfying, though that sort of comes along with the Hellboy core story of "just pick a side to end it". Practical effects were good with a few weaker costumes (the zombies), the CGI was actually good for its budget. Deserves the C score. Not as bad as they're trying to make it out to be, but an easy pass. And if you don't like gore or gross imagery, stay away from it for your own good. It only had be a little worse to make me regret paying for the ticket.

    Yeeeaaahhh...... Ed Skrein I think.
  7. Ok, I admit it. Their title is slightly better than my "Star Wars: The retconning", yet it still somehow manages to sound more course correcting than mine. Impressive.

    lol, I even started talking in this thread saying that the critics were probably right on this one, and you tried to shift this to "gaaarrr! this guy hates the PC critics!!!"? Had I said "a lot more people seem to be eating avocados these days" would you go on a totally random rant about how I'm wrong about liking avocados and we shouldn't rely on exported fruit? Nice try, at best you can say you quoted the wrong comment. But your narrative would still be off. As for the comment you improperly quoted. We can debate whether the GA is more or less lenient towards gore and gross out humor compared to a couple of decades ago. Considering the majority of movies that come out and succeed, yeah, I'd personally say it is less lenient (look at how South Park "evolved"), but if you want to simply say "Wrong! You're wrong!" knock yourself out.

    Well, comedy has never been huge, maybe action comedy. But CBM seem to have swallowed that genre. But yeah, it would also be my guess it'd do far less now. Even the good old Hellboy movies don't seem that impressive to me anymore to be honest. They are, at times, quite beautiful. But plenty of scenes are a bit of a drag to get through, at least on a rewatch. I'd agree Hellboy 3 would have been interesting, considering it'd likely be the prophecy's climax. But there's little point on crying over spilt milk. Yet I keep seeing reviewers bring it up, which becomes a little depressing.

    Barnack said you were off the mark even before I stepped in, I'm telling you that you were off the mark. Go ahead and keep doubling down instead of facing reality, it makes for great discussion. Like always.

    Oh, how I did not miss you and your foaming at the mouth being around. I was talking about Borat you mute bat. And not even about the critics, but box office.
