    Re: Who is in your Deadpool for Solo: Infinity War

    Saw Ready Player One.

    It's a fun two hours filled with all sorts of pop culture references that I enjoyed. The story was kinda paint by numbers and there weren't really any twists that I didn't see coming, but it kept my attention. I do feel that the "real" world stuff was kind of bland compared to what happened inside the Oasis and that switching between the two worlds was kinda clunky (specifically Parzival falling around in the van and having trouble because of that). Overall though, I just kept grabbing handfuls of popcorn and enjoyed the ride. I think you do have to be somewhat nerdy to get a good chunk of the references that were made, but they aren't super complex if you have just passing knowledge of the subject matter. Also think that Spielberg nailed some of the commentary on what it's like being a geek

    Black Panther is now the #4 domestic film ever. Sometime Friday afternoon it will pass Titanic and become the #3 film, crossing the $660 million mark.

    The film also has cracked the top 10 worldwide. The film's total is now $1.279 billion knocking Frozen from the ranks.

    Disney has six of the all-time domestic and five of the global top 10.

    A Quiet Place, a.k.a., Kids Ruin Everything. Great premise, genuinely scary, pretty well acted. Krasinski and Blunt suck in real life but they were perfectly average and no distraction. The brats were the interesting performances. I'd love to see the original screenplay before the pretty ones got involved -- I'm sure it is much better. But I'd still say it's a good pop out horror. Solid B, has moments (when the leads are offscreen) of A-ishness.

    The writers allowed K&B to dumb down their screenplay in exchange for creative control on their next movie, also through Bay, so we'll see what they've got then.

    That trailer is not doing it for me. I really cringed at a few of those scenes.

    Yeah watching Donald Glover try and do a Billy Dee Williams impression is just not my cup of tea. And nothing about whatshisface screams "Young Han Solo" to me. I hope people like it though. If I see it it will be because of MoviePass

    I'm curious, and I've seen exactly 0 trailers for the movie, what would make them feel like the characters they're trying to resurrect? I don't care one way or the other, this will just be a chase/caper movie with some fan service tossed in for good measure. Ron Howard directed it...eventually...so I'm expecting at least something salvageable from it though not awe inspiring.

    I dunno I have tried explaining it but I cant which is frustrating. That is always the problem with new people filling iconic roles. To me it looks like kids putting on their own fanfic movie (with an obviously bigger budget) trying to play Lando and Han. I had the same problem with McGregor as Obiwon though by the third movie it was at least believable they were the same person. Same with Chris Pine as Kirk (or well any of that cast) it just feels like younger people playing dress up.

    It will probably be the same when, after Indy 5 comes out, they recast Indy.

    Sometimes it works like with Bond (though there is definitely fan divide over the various interpretations) but part of what made Han Solo cool was what Ford brought to the character itself. (things you see in all his movies) That is not something someone else can just do because they arent him. They might be able to copy it, but it will always feel off even if the actor is great.

    This isnt a great parallel but I think the scenario works. When the Godfather was made the studio didnt want Pacino to play Michael, one of their top choices was James Caan. Now Caan is a great actor (much more suited for Sonny anyways but that is neither here nor there) and probably would have been fine or even really good in the part but it would have been a completely different character because many of the things that made Michael great were things Pacino himself brought to the part. (mannerisms, looks, tone of voice...etc) The performance transcends the part itself. That is how I feel about Harrison Ford as Han Solo. The character itself is pretty paint by numbers but something about his performance in the part pushed it beyond that for some of us.

    I dont expect most to agree with me, and I am not out to change anyone's mind on the subject. Like I said I really hope it is good and people love it. I guess I am just getting over exposed to Star Wars cause even the things that should grab me and make me want to see the film (the nerd stuff like the Falcon, Chewy, Han Probably winning the Falcon in a game of Sabaac...etc) just arent enough anymore.

    I thought McGregor was great from the start but I see your points.

    I think Solo will be like the first 20 mins of Indy 3 with River Phoenix as young Indy. Lots of fun and a few callbacks that show winning the falcon, saving chewie and maybe even how Solo fell out of favor with the Hutts etc

    Like Rogue One I have no expectations other than a good summer thrill ride of a movie.

    The best thing SW could do is get back to that as the expectation. The Universe and the fans are parasites weighing it down and enfeebling it, and putting it into an impossible situation. Maybe that's because the prequels were so awful the fanbase had no choice but to turn inwards and create interest among themselves while trying to ignore the actual disasters on screen. I can't think of a director who failed his fans as enormously and arrogantly as Lucas, leading me to believe it was actually never him, and others deserve the credit for what was great in the first two movies.

    Other than burning every print and erasing every file of Ep 1-3, the best thing SW could do would be worry less about continuity and Canon and more about telling a good story. Personally I think they did that with TLJ (and I am hardly a fanboy).

    Mother!

    That was one :censored: ed up movie. I didn't expect anything less, given the director, but wow. That being said, not my cup of tea. It was well done, it took a while to figure out which way he was going. Really a deep movie. Just didn't hook me. Basically watched it until the end to see what he was going to do with it.

    Strap in for this one, folks. Gonna need it.

    I should elaborate a bit. While Lucas had great ideas initially it was Gary Kurtz and later Lawrence Kasdan who helped him see it through.

    Kurtz was the QC as far as I can tell and itís revealing that Lucas pushed him out when their visions diverged on ROTJ.

    Story here: http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/star-wars-was-born-a-long-time-ago-but-not-all-that-far-far-away-in-1972-filmmakers-george-lucas-and-gary-kurtz-wer/amp/

    The reason the prequels were so terrible is there was no Kurtz or even a Kasdan to reign him in off of Col. Kurtz island.

    And it would have helped as well if he allowed Natalie Portman to act and used Liam Neeson as Kenobi and McGregor as Anakin. But I digress...
    Anyway, youíre right, Kurtz and Kasdan should get far more credit for the original trilogy than theyíve received.
