Title: The Upcoming Movie Thread
Post by: Grumpmeister on March 02, 2016, 12:47:27 AM
There has been talk about a big screen adaptation of the Gunslinger series for a while now but I'm in 2 minds about this as there have been few Stephen King adaptations that haven't been dire. The Shining and Shawshank Redeption are the only 2 that come to mind although The Mist wasn't that bad either. The less said about The Stand or the Langoliers the better.  noooo:

Idris Elba as Roland is an interesting bit of casting, I can sort of see him in the role. I'm not so sure about McConaughey as the Man in Black though  rubschin:

Well I was curious about this as I did like the original when I was a kid but if the trailer is anything to go by the reboot is going to be absolute shite.  noooo:

So last night we went to see Tim Burton's latest dark offering: Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children

Weird on so many levels with a slightly laboured first half and a stonking second half with Samuel L Jackson at his menacing best hamming it up.  Also wonderfully sick in parts so why somebody thinks it's OK for kiddiewinks with parents just defeats me. 

All in all 3 stars out of 4 from me.

Perhaps you should see the film then.  It's not about the water landing it's all about veteran post truther Clint Eastwood's fabricated story of the Safety Board investigation.  A false narrative that will weaken their ability to investigate safety issues and as a result make yours, my and everybody's lives a little less safe.

When I heard that Guy Ritchie was making a King Arthur film I had my doubts but really wanted it to work....

Then I heard he had given his mate David Beckham a part...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4491164/Fans-SLAM-David-Beckham-social-media-acting.html (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4491164/Fans-SLAM-David-Beckham-social-media-acting.html)

In all honesty I've seen Beckham take more convincing dives on the pitch than his 'acting' in that scene. Probably the closest he will ever get to being a knight though.

Might try watching it with a free ticket after a couple of pints but I doubt I'd pay for a seat, something tells me the best parts were used in the trailer.  noooo:

Paddington 2.  It's a sequel, it's about a kids book character, it shouldn't work for the likes of us


But it's brilliant (well after the first 10 minutes which are a bit slow), and just for BM there's even a musical dance number over the end credits.  Loads of cameos (sadly no Nicole Kidman this time) and just wall to wall humour over a suitably absurd plot

There are games out there with the potential to make really good films as long as you can get a director that understands the IP.

Duke Nukem? Not anywhere near that list.  noooo:

You could write a plot for a Duke Nukem film by writing guns, aliens, strippers or tits on to 25 bits of paper, putting them into a bag and drawing them randomly...  noooo:

Ok, review time for Solo...


Meh...


 noooo:


Ok being serious now, I wanted to like this film, I really did. But I went in not expecting a masterpiece and I can safely say that Solo delivered in that regard. In all honesty if you strip away the nostalgia and take out Han, Chewie and Lando then all  you would have an updated version of a Roger Corman B movie with elements lifted from Firefly such as the train robbery. Hell at one point in the film I actually dozed off briefly. The plot, such as it was, was bland, clunky and predictable and at no point in the film did I feel invested in any way with the characters, even if Donald Glover's portrayal of Lando was spot on.

Overall it was a couple of hours of my life that I'm not going to get back...  noooo:

To be fair to the cast they did what they could with the shite they had been given but it's just another example of Kennedy running the franchise into the ground blindly championing her agenda. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the idea of inclusion, but it has to be done properly.  And from what has been shown in the recent films Gordon Brown's clunking fist was more subtle than the garbage the screenplay writers that have been allowed hammer into the stories. Compare the Star Wars films to the MCU films, Marvel is going from strength to strength because they not only use the right actor for the role and directors who respect the lore but they also give them the artistic freedom to make the films that the fans want. Star Wars on the other hand seems to be a drive to destroy one of if not the most successful franchise in movie history in order to rinse the customers and push an blatant agenda in a way that insults the fans.

Aside from the hatchet job done on Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia's Jedi Poppins scene, Darth Whiny Emo, Rey's sudden mastery of Jedi combat when she has had little or no instruction, the blatant rip off of the Hoth battle from Empire Strikes Back, killing off senior characters just to get rid of them and then creating a pointless throwaway character in Holdo when she seems to have been crowbarred in just to force Dameron's mutiny by not telling the remaining command staff what the plan was. She would have been much better implemented by developing her over Ep 8 and 9, then there is the whole "we are on a secret mission and cannot give ourselves away but we will pretty much wave a huge flag saying Rebel spies here by rescuing the local wildlife" and of course the JarJar Binks of the new trilogy Rose Tico.

MI6 Fallout

Could be the best yet of the Mission Impossible franchise.  Even if you don't like Cruise the film just works all the way through.  Pacey, witty, very good action and a fair old yarn of a plot.  Cruise is as ever just right for that role and the supporting cast esp Cavill, Pegg, Kirby and Rhames excellent as well

If you only want cerebral films it's not for you, otherwise go see

Was curious about this film when it was first announced, right up to the point where I found out that they had got rid of Henry Coxwell (a record breaking balloonist at the time who was on the actual balloon flight with Glaisher and was instrumental in averting a catastrophe mid flight by releasing a trapped valve when the balloon ascended so high up that they began to pass out) and replaced him with some random female character instead.

"Episode IX will feature Flimso Bampot, a Rebel pilot whose species suffers from constant noisy flatulence and looks like Jimmy Savile."

Still on the subject of Star Wars, there is a fan re-edit of the godawful mess that was Episode 8 in the works and if the trailer is anything to go by then it's going to be a better piece of work than the original (then again that isn't really shooting for the sky).

Daisy is still in it but a lot of the scenes are completely changed from the mess that was the original. For one thing Luke actually trains her, Jedi Poppins is no more and Akbar actually has screen time.  :thumbsup:

Fantastic Beasts Crimes of Grimwald

Has had mixed reviews and I can see why but overall I'd be more positive.  The acting is superb (esp Redmayne and Depp) the filming and special effects top notch and the plot is a fair one

But

As many of the critics have said it is too intricate and complex for its own good especially in the middle third which sags after a good opening.  Too many characters and too many sub plots introduced

We enjoyed but with a decent script editor we'd have loved it

Most of the complaints I've been hearing from people leaving the film are that it seems to be playing fast and loose with the canon. I will admit I chuckled and shook the hand of the lass who said she fell asleep not long into the film and missed pretty much the entire thing..  lol:

Caught the end credit scenes for Once Upon a Deadpool and the Stan Lee tribute was excellent, starting with a couple of the additional lines that he had shot for Deadpool 2 that didn't get used and then changed to an excerpt from an interview with him. By the end if it there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Sam Elliott is excellent, there is some good story telling, a couple of unnecessary stupid bits but overall an engaging watch...

Quote from: IMDb
If you're able to watch this movie with an open mind and not get hung up on "unrealistic aspects" then it's extremely enjoyable. It was a well cast film and they did a great job telling two parallel stories at the same time. I had a lot of fun watching this and was entertained throughout the entire film.

Mrs K is talking about us going to see it tomorrow.  It's a clever premise for a film but the extracts look a bit cheaply done.  Maybe they spent the production budget de-aging Samuel L

Anyway may report back (if we don't get diverted to Ask Italian like we did last time)

Once Disney take it off the restricted list and I can use a free ticket I may give it a look but I'm not desperate to see it by any means.

Mrs K is talking about us going to see it tomorrow.  It's a clever premise for a film but the extracts look a bit cheaply done.  Maybe they spent the production budget de-aging Samuel L

Anyway may report back (if we don't get diverted to Ask Italian like we did last time)

The general feedback I've had is that when the cat that is used as a plot device has more on screen charisma and personality than the person in the title role then there has been a major cock up in the casting department.  noooo:

So a more detail review of Captain Marvel.

For a start it's not for people that hate fantasy based films - that means you BM so you can stop here and go tend the home brew.

So moving on:

One word:  Excellent
Two words: Must Watch
Three words: Possibly best Marvelfilm

Good plot, tight direction, good use of CGI, excellent interplay between Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson, clever links to the other Marvel films and a great 90's based sound track.  Nice homage to Stan Lee, witty 90s references arguably.  It starts confusingly but maybe that's the intention given the plot (no spoilers here) and it then moves on to a good piece of entertainment.  The cat is good with a very interesting coughing up 'furball' scene.  As ever with Marvel films, stay to the last second of the credits and also as ever some losers leave at the first hint of the credits.

It's got potential though, I'll give it that

Thought Linda Hamilton was very good in that clip.  She was rubbish in the first Terminator film and superb in the second.

But the best thing about that clip in terms of promise was two key words:  James Cameron

Haven't got around to watching it yet but I have a sneaking feeling that description will cover the Marvel franchise from now on as I don't think they have an overall story arc anymore.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7331343/Home-set-REBOOT-Disney-fans-outraged-news.html

Look Bob, there is a reason why your stock has dipped this quarter. You aren't listening to your customers and you are allowing well loved and profitable franchises that you have forked out a bleedin' fortune for to be ruined. Look at the absolute mess that Star Wars has become, three underwhelming films and a new series of a cartoon and it's taken up until now that a director has gone to George Lucas for advice on how to create something that doesn't ruin the legacy of the original films. Now look at Marvel phase 4, something that has been met with a tidal wave of 'meh' from the fans (and yes I know that Endgame is now the highest grossing film of all time but that is purely down to a cynical cash grab as all you added to the re-release were a couple of additional end credit scenes that should have been there in the first place ESPECIALLY the Stan Lee one. And not forgetting that your all singing all dancing Galaxy's Edge attraction has had such a poor attendance that you have had to significantly cut staff hours and the less said about Dark Phoenix the better. So now you are just raiding the archives for anything you can 'reboot' for a fast cash grab hence the live action remakes you are flooding cinemas with.

I'm going to assume that as you are the CEO of Disney you are an intelligent person, so how on earth have you forgotten the golden rule that the customer is always right. The fan base knows what it wants, well written stories that respect the lore of their corresponding franchises, people want to be entertained, not preached to so give them that. Then you could reboot old properties because you think they have a chance at being popular again and not because you are trying to make up for losses because people aren't going to see other releases.

Don't get me wrong, I loved Endgame but the way that they re-released it with the only change being a couple of additional credit scenes was nothing more than a blatant cash grab in order for it to beat Avatar

The documentary will follow Greta as a 'quiet teenage girl on the autistic spectrum' who begins a climate campaign with one simple question: 'If you don't care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school?'

The cynic in me has always wondered just how much of her 'movement' was down to that question and how much was really a result of being weaponised by her well known activist parents. Something tells me that is a question that will not be addressed by this film...  rubschin:

Knives Out (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8946378/)

At heart a whodunnit yarn with a twist but thoroughly entertaining in a tongue in cheek way for its just over 2 hour run time.  Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee-Curtis, Chris Evans, Toni Colette, Christopher Plummer and even Don Johnson all excellent playing dislikeable characters.  Even has a clever use of vomiting as part of the plot

Post by: Grumpmeister on April 15, 2020, 10:00:07 AM
I was really looking forward to Dune when it comes out but this interview makes me wonder if Villeneuve actually understands what the novel is about. 

Quote
For Villeneuve, this 55-year-old story about a planet being mined to death was not merely a space adventure, but a prophecy. “No matter what you believe, Earth is changing, and we will have to adapt,” he says. “That’s why I think that Dune, this book, was written in the 20th century. It was a distant portrait of the reality of the oil and the capitalism and the exploitation—the overexploitation—of Earth. Today, things are just worse. It’s a coming-of-age story, but also a call for action for the youth.”

It's not a distant portrait of the reality of oil and capitalism, if you had actually read the series you would know that. The reason why Arrakis is a desert planet is explained in Children of Dune and it has nothing to do with overexploitation of natural resources by people. Herbert wrote Dune and the subsequent books in the series based upon the idea that charismatic leaders were dangerous. In fact his famous quote on the matter is "I wrote the Dune Saga because I had this idea that charismatic leaders ought to come with the warning label 'May Be Dangerous To Your Health'" something he said numerous times.

Quote
In an intriguing change to the source material, Villeneuve has also updated Dr. Liet Kynes, the leading ecologist on Arrakis and an independent power broker amid the various warring factions. Although always depicted as a white man, the character is now played by Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Rogue One), a black woman. “What Denis had stated to me was there was a lack of female characters in his cast, and he had always been very feminist, pro-women, and wanted to write the role for a woman,” Duncan-Brewster says. “This human being manages to basically keep the peace amongst many people. Women are very good at that, so why can’t Kynes be a woman? Why shouldn’t Kynes be a woman?”

Aside from Herbert describing Kynes face in detail in chapter one I don't have a problem with you deciding to change Kynes to a woman if you thought that her performance of the role was the best one, but how the hell could you claim to have done it because of a lack of female characters in the bloody cast. Off the top of my head I can think of nearly 10 female characters, most of them pivotal in one way or another in the novel:

Lady Jessica Atreides
Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam
Princess Irulan
Chani Kynes/Atreides
Alia Atreides
Shadout Mapes
Margot Fenring
Harah
Reverend Mother Ramallo

Not to mention the entire bloody Bene Gesserit order.

Are you saying that they aren't going to be included in the film? Good luck with trying to rewrite the plot then. If you are going to change the gender of a character then at least be honest about why you are doing it instead of blowing smoke up our arses.

Dune should be in the perfect position to eclipse Star Wars as one of, if not the biggest science fiction film franchise after the disasters that have come out under Disney and Kennedy Granted that the article does tend to read as if it was written by an intern who had skimmed through the Dummies Guide to Dune (I was even half expecting to read them describe Paul as a Jedi wizard Greta Thunberg) but as much as I want to be wrong about it I'm starting to have reservations about this adaptation.

Quote
A 'tour de force' of a film and one of Hal Ashby's best films

'Harold & Maude' is one of those 'sleeper' films that just seems to resonate that bit more with every passing year. Harold, played by the criminally under-utilized Bud Cort, is the quintessential disaffected rich kid wanting to find some meaning in a vacuous life who hooks up with the devil-may-care Maude through their mutual love of attending funerals (Joyce's word 'fun-for-all' springs readily to mind in those scenes). There is plenty to love about this film, the slower pace and the lampooning of easy targets, the 'gung-ho' military uncle and the fetishist priest for example. Here is a film that really stands up well to repeated viewings.

Looks like when things get back to normal it could be a good time for the smaller independent cinema chains now that larger ones are throwing a temper tantrum against Universal over Trolls 2 and banning any other of their films from being shown. So for the sake of one film going straight to VOD they are sacrificing guaranteed major earnings from:

Jurassic World Dominion
Fast and Furious 9
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Boss Baby 2

I know that they want to keep the old status quo but this is just a case of cutting off your nose to spite your face.  facepalm:

I'm surprised that AMC were the first to kick this off though, even with the extra $500 million they raised in debt offering and the share price increase with around $5 billion total debt they are still bloody close to going into bankruptcy

There may be some frantic attempts to kiss and make up but it's going to cost AMC and that is going to hit the Odeon chain here especially as the next James Bond film was pretty much a guaranteed hit.  noooo:

If half of the precautions I've heard are accurate I'm not sure how many cinemas will survive. Losing half the rows in a screen and then half of the remaining seats to ensure distancing may only be economically viable for larger sites.

Worrying
 
Cinemas are like High Streets, Pubs and County Cricket - essential parts of what makes Britain British.  And all very much in danger and were before this crisis.  In the case of cinemas I think they'll survive because I think sooner or later a hard rain is coming to the pirating community that are their real threat

The studios switching to VOD won't prevent piracy though, if anything it will make it easier as you can stream to a computer and then use video capture to record it.

I guess their theory is that many pirate copy watchers do it more for the home viewing convenience than to steal.  I'd hate to see cinemas go, they're a huge part of my life but if I'm honest mostly last century.  Gone from ~2 visits a month to ~ 2 a year in normal times.  And yes that's part explained by the content is nowadays really aimed at those much younger than baby boomers but they're the ones most likely to want to see stuff on their screen and now

We did have a moderately optimistic outlook on the rest of the years releases until we found out that Death on the Nile has been put back to mid December but we can still have I am Greta next month.  Banghead

Assuming that we can last till mid November Bond, Death on the Nile , Wonder Woman and Dune will hopefully keep us going this year but I have a nasty feeling that October is going to be a long and unpleasant month although if we can get the re-releases of Dog Soldiers and Akira in they may get enough students in to help tide us over. If nothing gets rescheduled again next year we should hopefully be able to get back on track again as there are enough staggered big film releases to keep numbers fairly steady judging from Tenet's performance.   noooo:

I don't think Disney have realised what they have done though, rescheduling most of their films till next year has caused some real problems that will come back to bite them once things get back to something resembling normality. Any goodwill they had with cinema's has been hammered which means the chains and independents are going to be far less likely to accept their overly restrictive licencing agreements for their future releases especially with how many competing films may be coming out over the next 12-18 months.

At this rate the studios are going to make far less money than they expect because there won't be any cinemas left for them to release to and releasing VOD means that multiple people can watch for the price of a single rental.  Banghead

The same people who were perfectly happy to cram into pubs, the big films that were originally coming are the ones that would have appealed to them. Speaking of big films Dune, The Batman, Eternals, Top Gun Maverick, Black Widow and Ghostbusters have now been put back to mid/late 2021 and the Black Adam DCU and Minecraft films have been taken off the release list altogether. I'm honestly in doubt that the cinema industry is going to survive this at all as I now expect Wonder Woman and Death on the Nile to be put back again leaving pretty much all minor and independent films to last till at least March/April. Regal has joined Cineworld in closing their US and UK sites and Odeon has switched at least a quarter of their sites to weekend opening only, the BFI are 'highly concerned'.

The studios could easily throw a lifeline to cinemas by opening up their back catalogue for a reduced rate. It wouldn't cost them to only charge 30-50% of their normal licencing fee and royalties to show their older films and that could at least give sites a chance to keep going for the time being while still making them some money.

The thing that pisses me off is that we initially saw decent numbers for Tenet, they weren't huge but better than we expected not just because of Covid but also because the advertising and promotion for the film just seemed lazy. A trend that I've noticed for years now as the studios seem to depend more on social media word of mouth.

Well we knew the cash in films were coming and here is Micheal Bay's, Songbird. A film about Covid-23...  noooo:

Quote
The film follows a couple played by KJ Apa and Sofia Carson who fell in love virtually during “COVID-23” and try to meet up.

The “Romeo & Juliet”-esque plot is set in 2024 when “the mortality rate is over 50 percent and the virus kills at an accelerated rate” and “infected Americans are forced from their homes and into quarantine camps,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

Shakespeare in Lockdown?  noooo:
