Re: Twilight Zone (CBS All Access) -- from producer and host Jordan Peele

I don't get CBS All Access but the first episode of the second season ("Meet in the Middle") was briefly available to watch for free, so I watched it for free. I want my money back.

Re: What movies are among your favorites that no one else ever talks about?

Not sure I agree. There are a lot of titles on here that I've heard of, but never bothered to see, and definitely don't hear/see people talking about them much anymore. This thread is helping to...

What movies are among your favorites that no one else ever talks about?

Last night I was watching Twilight Zone: The Movie for the umpteenth time. I know it's not a great movie, and some of it is an inexcusable shift from the tone of the original series (particularly the...

Re: Favorite movie scenes of all-time?

The airplane scene in The Incredibles. It's paced so wonderfully and full of tension. Helen flying while begging Violet to use her powers, Violet struggling to comply, Bob realizing his kids are on...

Re: Dead to Me (Netflix) -- S: Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini; EPs: Ferrell, McKay

Just finished this last night. It was not nearly as good or riveting as season one, but it still wasn't bad. The acting remains stellar, although dang is this show weepy.

Re: What do you think is the #1 twist ending in movie history? (spoilers)

I agree. Not sure this needs spoilers, but...
I also figured out the twist partway through and was bummed. It ruined my initial viewing; it took subsequent viewings to realize that everything else...

Re: What do you think is the #1 twist ending in movie history? (spoilers)

Yes, it's hard to argue that The Sixth Sense has one of, if not the, greatest twists of all time. It proceeded to spawn a whole slew of gotcha-twist ending movies in its wake, for better or for worse...

Re: Which MCU actor do you like best in real life?

Without naming names (b/c I don't want to get into a debate), there's one person on the list above who uses Twitter to give his/her hot takes on the news of the moment and then doesn't bother to...

Re: COVID-19 Virus -- Movie related news

Re: Movies that you pretend they dont exist

I forgot all about Glass. It amazes me how Shyamalan can swing from excellent to completely tone-deaf as a writer/director. He pulled an amazing stunt by releasing a secret (quasi-) sequel, and then...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Abrams, 2019) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

This will forever blow my mind. It's like Disney said, George didn't plan all three movies in advance, so we don't have to either!, and then hired a writer/director who decided to plant several...

Re: Movies that you pretend they dont exist

I said Alien3 (actually, I said every movie post-Aliens). But I'll admit I'm torn about Alien3. It's not a bad movie. But it's not enjoyable. It's so bleak (even compared to Alien) that it's not a...

Re: Movies that you pretend they dont exist

As a kid, I was a HUGE fan of Gremlins. Had the plush Gizmo, a t-shirt, ate the cereal, etc. By the time Gremlins 2 finally came out, I was a teenager, but still excited to see it. I walked out of...

Re: COVID-19 Virus -- Movie related news

When allowed, local churches here are planning to go to two services so that social distancing is possible via fewer people per service. Don't assume that Christian = idiot.

Re: Movies that you pretend they dont exist

- The Matrix was a standalone movie, not a trilogy.
- Star Wars Episodes I - III don't exist, and given enough time to ruminate on them, I have a feeling VII - IX are eventually going to cease to...

Re: Has there been a miscast character in Marvel’s MCU?

Sebastian Stan. He hasn't done anything memorable or noteworthy with the character. He's so bland and forgettable that I think they could recast him and no one would notice. I feel almost the same...

Re: COVID-19 Virus -- Movie related news

That's the rub for theaters. An open theater means nothing of there's nothing new to show. I had a friend theorize that drive-ins should do big business this summer, not realizing all the...

Re: Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice - documentary - September 6, 2019

What really struck me when watching this doc was how, by all appearances, Ronstadt just basically fell into rock stardom. Hers was definitely not a waiting-tables-for-years-until-my-big-break story....

Re: The Others -- remake

The original was decently made, but IMO, suffered greatly by coming out shortly after The Sixth Sense. I was able to call the twist within the first few minutes and sat there mostly bored for the...

Re: Which did you like more, Avengers: Infinity War or Endgame?

IW chugs along like a well oiled machine. There's hardly a dull moment. It's electric from start to finish and has an awesome downer of a cliffhanger.

I love Endgame, but it does have its fair...

Re: Terminator: Dark Fate (Tim Miller, 2019) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

This, exactly. The reason Ripley and Sarah Conner resonated is because they were well written characters in good movies. Not just because they were women.

There seem to be some in Hollywood that...
