Ad Astra? Ford v Ferrari? LION KING?!?

Lmao at you thinking Lion King 2019 is something that brings about any excitement in me at all.

 

Ad Astra and Ford v Ferrari look good too.

This really lives and dies with Taika's performance. That's the key to everything. if he works, the movie works. I think it'll work cause it's obvious he has a clear idea what he's going for.

It's obviously a satire. It even has a big lettered tag that says SATIRE. Really no reason for anyone to be offended. Looks fun and different and if Tarantino could make a satire (IB, Django) that did really well with audience and AMPAS, why wouldn't this?

THAT'S THE POINT! :lol:

 

I'm a little sad that the trailer went out of its way to say "don't worry folks, this is satire".

 

Like, duh, OF COURSE IT'S SATIRE.  Watching this for ten seconds makes it obvious that this is satire.  

 

My secondary observation was, more or less, "well, Monty Python would sometimes flash in big huge letters "SARCASM" or "SATIRE", so whatever".  But then again, they usually did it as part of the joke.  A sort of meta-commentary on humor.

All I was basically saying is I felt it was a little sad that they actually felt they had to tell us this was a satire.  If it's part of the joke, then fine.  But credit watchers with at least a little intelligence is more or less my point, I suppose. 

(it's also not a big deal - just a passing observation :))
