Re: Your Favorite Films of 2020

Top Favorite Film: Mank. Watched it twice. David Fincher deserves best director. Full stop.

Re: Family films that might mess up kids

Transformers: The Movie (1986) is the alpha and omega of fucked up movies marketed to kids. Seeing your cartoon heroes being being slaughtered en masse for the sake of putting out a new toy line is...

Re: Untitled Star Trek Film from Discovery writer

Yeah, you're right. However the TNG cast had a mondo public goodwill after their seven season run and it didn't help them in their last two movies. But then the TNG movies just needed a consistent...

Re: Untitled Star Trek Film from Discovery writer

This. The Motion Picture was the most expensive but not the most well received (though I've grown to adore it). Wrath of Khan was given a comparatively TV movie-level budget (compared to TMP) and...

Re: Great entrances/first on-screen of an iconic character?

Arnold Schwarzenegger's first appearance in The Terminator as he raises up from the bottom of the screen and begins to go off to his mission. Or Arnold's first appearance in Terminator 2 (technically...

Re: Untitled Star Trek Film from Discovery writer

The more they try to make Trek mainstream, the more I love Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Re: Untitled Star Trek Film from Discovery writer

Seconded.

We will never see anything warm, tender and human like Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home as a Trek movie again. It's all The Fast and the Furious in Space. Hard pass.

Re: Movies that need to be seen on the big screen at least once

Maybe.

I just know people pack houses to see revivals of older films on the big screen (in "the before times"). What I would give to see a pristine film presentation of 2001: A Space Odyssey on a...

Re: Movies that need to be seen on the big screen at least once

I respectfully disagree. A film on an ultra high definition presentation on a screen on a massive IMAX screen has MUCH more impact and far more immersive than a seeing the film on a 60" 4K screen at...

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

Side question: why does the former POTUS get more posts on his thread than our current POTUS? I know it's not too much, but it is noticeable.

Re: Movies that need to be seen on the big screen at least once

It's still an excellently made film and even on the small screen it is intense, but, yeah, it's not the same as the theatrical experience which might be a blessing to you.

Re: Movies that need to be seen on the big screen at least once

It wouldn't have the same impact on a second theater viewing. Once was enough, but it's as powerful cinematic experience on the big screen as I've ever encountered. It makes the opening of Saving...

Re: Movies that need to be seen on the big screen at least once

United 93

It's an experience that will stay with you the rest of your life. Because in theater, YOU ARE THERE on that doomed flight. It's claustrophobic, it's harrowing right down to the air...

Re: Warner Brothers to go 45 day theatrical only window in 2022

Ha! In fairness, it would have been a mixed metaphor if it was one sentence, but I purposely made it two--however I could be wrong. I don't know this stuff.

Regardless, I don't think the...

I don't think it's as simple as Warner thinks it's going to be. Pandora has opened the box. The genie has escaped the bottle.

Re: Bay vs Snyder: Who's the King of Slow-Mo?

I'm not sure, but I've never seen a movie with so many gratuitous slow-mo shots in my life.

Re: Bay vs Snyder: Who's the King of Slow-Mo?

Neither. The guy who did American History X is my pick. My god, that movie must have a trillion slow-mo shots.

Most filmmakers are hit and miss. (Francis Ford Coppola made Jack for chrissakes!) There's also a certain snobbery that goes with the belief that one director is a genius who puts out nothing but...

Re: Chasing Amy. Is it any good?

I thought Jason Lee played such a hostile asshole in Chasing Amy. (And it seemed like he was constantly shouting every other line in Mallrats for some reason)
