    Re: Movies: New Ideas Welcome II Prequel Reboot

    Thor Ragnarok trailer dropped today. Holy ****.

    This year is going to be awesome. Guardians/Wonder Woman/Spiderman/Thor/Star Wars 8.

    I was already assuming Guardians would be the best of the bunch but after the Thor trailer I may have to go there.

    Saw Get Out over the weekend. I really enjoyed it. I didn't think I would since scary movies aren't my thing (jump-scares get me every time), but I actually got really into the story. More psychological than jump scare. I actually thought the trailers were scarier than the movie.

    Really enjoyed that, too, and for the same reason.

    Now that things have had some time to sink in: The trailer was awesome, but I am wary of this being way overhyped. The trailers for Age of Ultron had me stoked for the film as well. And it was for the same exact reason: a badass villain that is a legitimate threat. Cater Blanchett looks stunning in this trailer, but Marvel's track record speaks for itself in this department. My hopes are rooted in the fact that the character is probably playing a key role in upcoming stories, so she'll be sticking around and has to be written well.

    I just hope that this isn't all hope with a colossal let-down

    I agree the villians have not been done well. That being said this looks like it could be the start of a turn in the other direction and all indications are Thanos will be epic.

    Wow. I loved LA Story. I haven't seen that in such a long time I wonder if I've still got it tucked away on VHS somewhere. It's overdue for a screening. I'll enjoy it with a half double decaffeinated half-caf... with a twist of lemon.

    I watched the Star Wars teaser...meh. It looks interesting and rather generic. I will still see it though

    Read that a "Coming To America" sequel is coming to Paramount.

    NO.

    Don't you know there are no original ideas in Hollywood anymore.
    Everything has to be either a sequel or a reboot.

    Sully:

    About the Miracle On The Hudson. You could tell they were not trying to Hollywoodize this thing, and they did a good job of it. Very solid movie, highly recommend.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    The acting was outstanding. JFC. Top notch. The presentation of the story, however, was rather choppy. I think the flow really needed improvement. I don't mind dry movies, but this was one that should not have been shown in such a manner.

    Re: Movies: New Ideas Welcome II Prequel Reboot

    I've been pretty sick the last three days. When I wasn't sleeping, I caught a few movies.

    The Deerhunter - that was one big fat meh. I don't get how this is so highly rated. The first hour was wholly useless.
    Any Given Sunday - Awful. No redeeming qualities.
    Michael Clayton - pretty good
    War Dogs - surprisingly good and interesting
    Catch me if you can - also good
    Insomnia - Creepy but boring

    The first hour is brilliant. Once they leave for Nam it's meh.

    Re: Movies: New Ideas Welcome II Prequel Reboot

    I was so bored with the movie I almost turned it off after the first hour. The acting was terrible. The story was useless.

    Sinclair's The Jungle did that scene much better in book form. Spend a short time at the wedding, tell the story, move on. They drew that scene out for 45 minutes, spent 15 on the hunt, then sent you to Vietnam. The only useful scene was, "F_ck it."
