  1. ok the most iconic moment in the Star Wars franchise is "jarring" and worst than bringing back Palatine from the dead to be Rey's father I see lots of terrible Star Wars takes but this one is 👌
  2. the fan base sure is dedicated: https://ca.ign.com/articles/alita-battle-angel-sequel-fan-campaign-oscars-academy-awards
  3. Not just Avatar, but I think sci-fi in general could potentially overtake comic book movies this decade, I say potentially. We're off to a strong start with big productions such as Dune, Tenet and Avatar. Depending how successful they are, they could contribute to launch a different era. And people like to joke about superhero fatigue now, but it doesn't mean it will never happen (comic book movies will never outright disappear of course that's not what I'm saying) I don't really think BOP doing poorly is indicative of superhero fatigue, but perhaps a slight warning sign. WW84 and Black Widow will be much more indicative of things to come I believe. I do think they will be successful, I'm not underestimating Marvel / DC, but will they break the bank? As long as it makes enough so that Cameron gets to complete his vision, I'll be satisfied. He'll be #1 again anyway after Avatar re-releases 😉
  4. it doesn't answer any question so far. The real question is how much leeway Marvel is willing to give him, and how much Raimi is willing to adapt his style to the Marvel template.
  5. those trailer views are pretty damn low even for a final trailer not an exact science, but clearly the hype is not through the roof for this it seems to me like the stars are starting to align against this movie, the epidemic in China, the boycott... and I already see a lot of complaining online from fans of the original. This and that is missing, no dragon, no songs etc. Is the western audience going to care for a wuxia style epic? has it ever? It doesn't look terrible, but it looks a little too serious and humorless for a big Disney family event. I think it's going to be a Detective Pikachu style performance, massively overpredicted.
  6. It definitely got its fair share of praise, being one of the top 3 movies with the most Oscars ever, but ironically also probably one of the most snubbed movie ever. A lot of people, I think, can't get passed the love story they view as overly sappy and they let it overshadow anything the movie does spectacularly well. I also admittedly have issues with some of the dialogue, but it's mostly insignificant when I look at the whole
  7. I remember Cameron saying in an interview he didn't want Titanic to be labeled as a disaster movie. That can be debated, but to your point he did feel like he was doing something different from the typical disaster film.
  8. So much contempt... Is it? For one thing Titanic (1997) crushes ANTR in every technical department: much more faithful recreation of the ship and the sinking of it (the collision scene is downright laughable in the 58 movie), actual footage of the wreckage and used smartly in the movie, it's an overall much more immersive experience. Should we put that aside because the movie was made 4 decades earlier and the tech just wasn't there? I think that's no excuse, unless what you're saying is "it was better for the time", which is a different thing. Maybe you think it makes up for it with other things like the script acting or other, I would like to know. Maybe it's better in a way if you're looking for a more dry documentary style approach without the love story in the way, but you're still missing out massively on the technical achievements of the 97 movie. But I find that even some of the smaller stuff in ANTR just doesn't compete with Titanic. One of the key scene where they realize the ship will sink is so underwhelming in the 58 movie. There's no tension, no sense of impending doom, the ship architect sounds more like he's doing a casual school lesson to the captain rather than him being in a life or death situation: Everything is better in Cameron's version, I think he's a little underrated when it comes to the smaller non-action scenes. The blocking, the acting, the camera movements, the long pauses before they say their line, it all makes for a much more tense scene.
  9. got smoked the same year by another sci-fi movie with one sixth of the budget directed by some unknown. It' s called The Terminator, I heard it's good.
  10. you're welcome to explain this data however you like it it's not like anything you say in this thread is backed up by anything anyway
  11. hmm no not likely https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=star wars I wish I could go back in the late 70s, 80s and 90s too.
