Re: Actors with one line roles that got in the opening credits?

Did Milla Jovovich barely speak in Dazed & Confused? She got on the movie poster.

Re: Best film directed by Dario Argento.

Opera. Completely floored me. Followed by Suspiria and Deep Red.

I enjoy most of his other movies, but their tone puts me into sort of a hypnosis (not necessarily a bad thing). But in...

Re: New Releases Overpriced

With any movie, I always wait a few months for their prices to come down anyway. With the ease of access to streaming services' sheer quantity of decent movies at their prices, I can't justify...

Re: What Makes a Good Movie Adaptation?

Yup. As somebody who watched the movies without reading the books, there were a few cases that screamed, "you read the books so you know the deal here." Luna was the only real major character that...

Re: Movies "Taken Away" from the Director

re: Poltergeist. There's one particular shot that screams Spielberg. Remember in Jaws, that shot of Roy Scheider on the beach when he realizes he's witnessing a shark attack? The camera is zooming...

Re: What Makes a Good Movie Adaptation?

It's hard to say. You have to keep a cohesive story while at the same time, it has to work as a movie.

Speaking of Harry Potter, a new trend seems to be to divide a book into multiple movies so...

Re: Gravity (Cuarón, 2013) — The Reviews Thread

On top of disliking 3D, it gives me an eye strain headache. Since everything is in focus, my eyes try to refocus when they switch from the foreground to the background and it ends up hurting. So I...

Re: Scariest single scene in a film?

Mullholland Drive - While not a horror movie, early on that diner scene is absolutely the scariest thing I've ever seen. Very dreamlike, the guy says he had a nightmare that a filthy homeless person...

Re: Movies that turn out tonely different than the actor expects?

The king of this scenario is Kyle Maclachlan. Supposedly he was found banging his fist against a wall outside a showing of Showgirls crying "I thought it was an art film!"


Also, most of the...

Re: Movies That Bombed Due to Poor Release Dates

That's fair. If it actually has to do with the holiday then a Halloween release would make sense.

Re: Movies That Bombed Due to Poor Release Dates

Can every horror movie that bombs be blamed on it not having been released in October? Surely the studios would want to spread them out over the course of the year. I assume October is generally...

Re: Movies you've tried to like?

I'm a huge Pixar fan, but I can understand where you're coming from. Up until Wall-E, all of their movies were them picking a subject and conquering it (toys, bugs, fish, superheroes, monsters). I...

Re: Movies That Bombed Due to Poor Release Dates

Yeah the word of mouth sank that one. It quickly got a reputation as one of the best-known bad movies out there.




I think that's a movie they didn't know how to market either. The Paul...

Re: Movies you've tried to like?

I have similar problems with Nolan's movies. I think his strength is that he takes fantastical stories and grounds them in reality. But his problem is that he often makes them too serious, and his...

Re: Movies you've tried to like?

Ronin is on my Netflix queue despite my having tried it twice before and never being able to get into it. I keep hearing ravings about it so I put the blame on myself.

Re: Do you ever see yourself "growing out" of video games?

Generally, no. Yeah a lot of the people saying this are non-gamers who think video games are a children's toy. My parents bought me an NES when I was 6, and couldn't beleive they were buying me a...

Re: Has an actor or actress ever appeared in both the original film and the remake?

I realize this is TV, but Richard Hatch appeared in a leading role in the original Battlestar Gallactica, as well as a recurring character in the reimaged series.

Re: Dumb And Dumber To (2014, Farrelly Brothers) S: Carrey, Daniels

Agreed that he's great in more mature roles. The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Man in the Moon are all worth your time.

Re: Troll Hunter (US remake) (D: Neil Marshall)

I wasn't overly thrilled with the original Trollhunter, as cool as the concept was. It didn't help either that the final super troll was the one that you see on all the advertisements including the...
