Re: The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021, D: Joel Coen) S: Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand

I’m a huge fan of Orson Welles’ Shakespeare films and this one has an awful lot of them in their DNA, including just dazzling, claustrophobic scenery and black and white cinematography. it’s just...

Re: The Expanse (Amazon) -- The 6th and Final season -- Premieres 12/10/21

Yeah apparently the stuff with the children and the guy in the finale who said he wouldn’t help Marcos is all from later books in the series, which seemed pointless Easter eggs for those of us who...

Re: Official 2021 Movie Guild and Critic's Awards Thread

Power of the Dog is terrific and I’m pulling for Campion to win director at the Oscars.

but yeah, Kidman for playing Lucille Ball is a classic Globes WTF moment. Not her worst work but hardly the...

Re: The Harder They Fall (2021, D: Samuel) S: Elba, Majors, King, Stanfield, Beetz, Lindo - Netflix

I liked how this started but to be honest it really started to sag and lose momentum in the middle - too many characters each with their own complicated bit vaguely cliche side stories, the best...

Re: Peter Bogdanovich dead at 82.

He also wrote some great books about Hollywood directors and stars collecting interviews he did, and some terrific stuff about Orson Welles who he was close to. His own film career kind of sparked...

Re: Cobra Kai (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 12/31/21

Love how they took the over-the-top villain from what’s generally considered the worst KK movie and made him actually work.

Re: The Expanse (Amazon) -- The 6th and Final season -- Premieres 12/10/21

There’s something I’m finding a little inert about this season with only two episodes to go. Feels like too much time with Marco and the same conflicts we had last season and not much in the way of...

Re: RIP Betty White - Dead at 99

The Mary Tyler Moore Show >>>> Golden Girls, IMHO, but it’s the latter show that will lead all the obits I guess. Ed Asner, Betty White, Cloris Leachman, Gavin Macleod, it has truly been a rotten...

Re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland - The Spoiler Reviews Thread

You know, the very first episode of Daredevil repeatedly refers to the Avengers movie and attack on NY City, I don’t know why some act like it is NOT canon just because some business boffins split up...

Re: Who is your favorite Spider-Man?

Maguire is the closest to “my” Spider-Man and feels the most comics accurate. Garfield’s movies were pretty awful writing and plots but he isn’t bad, just a bit darker and less nerdy. I like Holland...

Re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland - The Spoiler Reviews Thread

I did not like Garfield’s movies very much - terrible diversions from canon, needless conspiracy theories, muddled tone and an obsession with lame plot threads that didn’t pay off (Peter’s parents...

Re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland - The Spoiler Reviews Thread

I don’t believe there IS a Ben Parker in the MCU. I may be wrong, but has he EVER been mentioned? He certainly doesn’t have to exist. May fills his role perfectly, right down to the great power quote.

Re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland - The Spoiler Reviews Thread

I was genuinely shocked when I realised that Aunt May is Peter’s Uncle Ben in the MCU. Nice swerve.

Re: Hawkeye (S1E05) - “Ronin” - 12/15/21

I thought it was established years ago the Netflix shows were canon already, they made a few references to Avengers in there?

Re: Hawkeye (S1E05) - “Ronin” - 12/15/21

I don’t know, I can think of about 50 different ways to reveal D’Onfrio that would’ve been cooler than a blurry cell phone picture.

generally loving this show but boy, feels like a lot they need...

Boy, did anyone have Shang-Chi outgrossing Eternals and Black Widow domestically in their box office picks back in January?

Re: The Power of the Dog (2021, Campion) S: Cumberbatch, Dunst, Plemons, Smit-McPhee - Netflix

Terrific stuff. It’s Jane Campion so it’s not going to be a “feel good” movie but it’s really well made, Dunst and Cumberbatch outstanding and gorgeous New Zealand pretending to be Montana scenery. I...

Re: Eternals (2021, D: Zhao) -- S: Chan, Madden, Hayek, Jolie -- The Spoiler Reviews Thread

The lack of reaction in this thread when MCU movies usually go for pages and pages doesn't bode well for its long-term success (and yeah I know it's still a pandemic but...)

Re: Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021, D: Jason Reitman)

More boring nostalgia for nostalgia's sake. I'll pass, and I love the original.

Re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland

Fan speculation with stuff like this is a real problem, if Tobey and Garfield DON’T show up there will be howls of outrage from the same crowd who somehow expected the X-Men, Fantastic Four and maybe...

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

I just don't know how I feel about Boba Fett just running around with his helmet off all the time casual-like, even though I dig Temuera Morrison. It just kind of goes against the picture in my head...
