I'm really hoping this is a Cloverfield sequel and not just a movie that has the name slapped on it for marketing's sake. From the trailer it looks like this isn't a found footage movie, and it there's no indication that the monster from the first one is featured in this either. This good be a really good movie, especially with Goodman on board. I just don't want people to get their hopes up of getting a monster movie sequel, when instead we could get a claustrophobic character study.
I thought the idea behind The Cabin in the Woods was clever, but you can't make a movie alone on a clever idea. Whedon and Goddard are so busy throwing in as many monster references as they can that the idea starts to get dull, while characterization and plot are put on the backburner. The most "unique" horror movie I have ever seen in probably either Alien or The Thing thanks to it's ingenious concepts and brilliant direction. One of the better horror movies I have seen recently is It Follows.
Like many, I was stunned to hear the news this morning of Alan Rickman's death. To me he will forever be immortalized by his fantastic role in Die Hard. Great tribute riddler. Rest in peace Mr. Rickman.
Several. During the first attack of Glass's camp, the camera moved around effortlessly from character to character appearing as one continuous shot. Another was when Glass was on the shoreline and the Native Americans were approaching. It appeared that the camera went off the cliff of the scene making a complete 360 turn. The direction of the movie, I thought, was fantastic. Right up there with Birdman.
There is a difference between a great, well-made film; and a bad film that people want to see. The Ridiculous 6 is not a good movie. It does however star Adam Sandler who is a big Hollywood name. It is moves in a quicker pace than most movies, and the viewer doesn't have to strain themselves in order to enjoy. In a time where lazy filmmaking has become acceptable thanks to audiences that don't like to overthink, its no surprise that The Ridiculous 6 has taken the top spot on Netflix.
Can't wait for this movie. I'm very tempted to download it know and watch it on my computer, if that version is still floating around the internet somewhere. However, I want to wait and see this one on the big screen, given how good I've heard the cinematography in the movie is.
Alright here we go, 1. I had a feeling that Kylo-Ren was Han and Leia's kid going into the movie. I like how they revealed it halfway through instead of dropping it on us at the end. I also like how he is the villain. At some point when he was training with Luke, Snoke must have turned him to the dark side, leading to the destruction of the new Jedi. I can't wait to see how they explain this in the next chapter. 2. Man, what a great scene that was. I mean I was bummed about Solo being taken out, but that scene was done very well with an emotional build up and great execution. 3. So my theory is that Rey was part of Luke's new Jedi order. She was so young at the time, she's unable to remember any of it. When things went bad with Ben and the other Knights of Ren, Luke dropped her off at Jaku thinking she would be safe. That explains how she is so strong with the force so quickly, she had prior training but its buried deep down in her subconscious. Overall a great addition to the Star Wars saga, and I can't wait for more answers with the next installment!
I'm pretty stoked for this one, especially after we got that 2015 American version which sucked. Hopefully this Toho one will get back to the originals roots and have Godzilla be an evil force of nature.
Wow that video actually made some pretty valid points. I mean it's obvious that this guy has way too much time on his hands, but I took the time out of my day to watch it so maybe I shouldn't be talking haha. Anyway I highly doubt that Lucas had intended Jar Jar to be a Sith Lord, but that sure would have made the prequels a hell of a lot more interesting.
Well I guess we won't know why until Hateful Eight is released to masses in three weeks. I have to agree that Fury Road was great, definitely one of the best of the year. The important thing to take away here was that Hateful Eight was in the top 10 too so the movie must be pretty good.
Seems like an unnecessary amount of movies are getting their own spinoff TV shows. Twelve Monkeys, Gremlins, even My Best Friends Wedding. Was anyone clamoring for a My Best Friend's Wedding TV show? I don't know why this is a sudden growing trend but maybe it could be good. Fargo is one of my favorite new shows, and that was based on a movie as well.
I had a suspicion this movie would tank. It's too bad as Radcliffe and McAvoy are both good actors. What's even worse is that John Landis' son, Max Landis is the one who penned the script. For those who don't know, John Landis was responsible for creating An American Werewolf in London, one of the first great dark comedy/horrors. With talent like that its too bad the film flopped.
