The creators are on record saying that "themes are for college essays". So not a surprise character/plot/thematic consistency is not a concern for them.

 

Oh, really? Didnt know that. Eh, that explains some things.

I kinda feel sad for Ron Howard because he probably took this gig on because he figured it would be an easy moneymaker after everything he's made this decade has been a non-starter (Rush was a good movie but no one saw it).

Fox was dumb to move Deadpool 2. Should have come out on June 1.

Yes and that way IW would have done 700M+.

It doesn't matter when Deadpool 2 came out it was NEVER matching the first film domestically because it's a comedy sequel. Would it have done better? Sure but the predictions of it doing better than the first were always fantasy.

Yeah, for a comedy sequel, it's actually holding onto its audience better than most.

I think they moved it for international box office purposes (World Cup and JW2 opening)

The most successful people are the ones who came to the show with already pre-established careers (Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Gillen, etc.)

Please don't forget my boy Charles Dance.

Seasons 1-4 were masterpieces. Nearly flawless imo. With Season 5 began the "downfall" into very good-territory and Season 7 was kinda disappointing for me. Im a book nerd though, so that plays a role too.

 

Consistency-wise, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Breaking Bad are near the top imo. Widening the spectrum outside the US, some Japanese shows like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood or (for me) Attack on Titan are also damn near perfect.

I would call it trash but I'm afraid my trashcan would be offended

I might go again tonight with a friend, thought I better book (even for the 22.30 showing). I needn't have bothered, the second biggest screen is currently show 4 seats booked out of 300ish. I saw the same showing for IW (latest saturday opening WE), and that had over 50 seats booked and about half were full by the showing.

I don't even know what comparison to use for Book Club.  It's got such a different audience than most other films out right now.  I can only assume that whatever it does today, it will do at least that on Sunday.  So just guessing here, but could we see 35% increase today to 3.6 and a 10 mill three day?

I'm gonna point out, I said this was a rumor a week ago (production cost over 300m) and I got mocked for making up rumors.  Glad they're admitting to it.  It's good to be right, again, about how this movie cost way too much and is unlikely to make its money back... during its theatrical run or any time after including merchandising.

 

The parallels to JL are very tangible.  A big mess is a big mess.

But unlike JL......Solo is actually a good movie.
