    It's a metaphor. Would you like to be clued in on what those are?
    Pretty much this.

    It comes from Eisner and his start as CEO at Disney. Basically you make a bunch of cheap, smaller budget movies with small profit instead of trying to make a huge, expensive blockbuster that has huge risk of losing a ton.

    Edit: Good video on the subject.

    That's the Blumhouse business model.

    Good business sense, I suppose. I did enjoy Punch Drunk Love for a non-inane movie of his. Happy Gilmore/Waterboy are sophomoric classics, of course. I was hoping for more with this one.

    Big Kill:
    A tenderfoot from Philadelphia, two misfit gamblers on the run, and a deadly preacher have a date with destiny in a boom town gone bust called Big Kill.

    Standard B-Movie western, not a bad thing at all. I fully enjoyed it. Decent action, nice dry humorous zingers, rather entertaining.
    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.

    Re: Movie Thread #50: Godzilla gives us permission to nuke our enemies

    I found the latest Spiderman enjoyable, but not great. There weren't so much plot holes as "logic holes" in the script. I expect a few - it IS a superhero movie after all - but there were just too many things that didn't add up. I had a good time and several parts were excellent. I found myself wanting more of Peter and MJ and less of Spiderman (which is kinda the point of the comics)

    I wish I had left before the mid-credits scene. Kevin Feige said Far From Home capped Phase III of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and as the credits rolled it felt that way. The mid-credits scene changed all that. If you do stay, stay until the very end. The final end credits scene is funny and explains some (but not nearly all) of those logic holes. And no, it's not a lecture from Captain America about expectations.

    The movie itself gets an 8. The mid credits scene knocks it down to a 7. It really left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I must have watched a completely different movie and mid-credit scene.

    No, I'm pretty sure it was the same one.

    I know people are going nuts for it. It just didn't hit me the same. I'm not saying it's a bad movie, it just doesn't measure up to the first one, or the best MCU films. That's a high bar to clear.

    If we just isolate Spiderman this movie stands alone at the top. It's the best done Spidey Villain in film. The action sequences were awesome. So, yes, I thought it was better than the "first" one. By a wide margin.

    Yeah but you also liked Dark Phoenix (I am kidding)

    I will probably see Spidey in a couple weeks with my buddy. (likelong Spidey fan) He isnt super excited for it though.

    In news that will surprise exactly no one: MoviePass suspended operations effective 5AM today. Mitch Lowe claims the suspension is temporary for a few weeks so it can update the app. Of course this doesn't hold any water since most companies just roll out a new app without bothering to interrupt service. If the service ever comes back, I'd expect it in September, after It 2 with another "suspension" in December.

    I'm still a subscriber. The company is shady as hell, but the nearest AMC is over 100 miles away and Regal hasn't introduced a service yet (although it is coming!) so MP it is. Or was....

    I do like Tom Holland's portrayal of Peter Parker/Spiderman. He only has one more solo film (and 0 MCU films) left so I hope Disney and Sony can continue to play nice and extend his contract.

    He will be when he sees it...his gripes arent with Holland as Spidey but more with the Iron Man/MCU stuff. I think he would have liked Homecoming more if that had been tempered more. He also isnt a big Mysterio guy...

    Spidey was probably the best part of Civil War and was awesome in Infinity War so even if he said he wasnt going I would see it at some point.
