  1. I'm looking so forward to seeing this.
  2. Yeah. It's a whole series of memes called Confused Travolta.
  3. Hold the ****, they made a Joe Dirt 2? Was it direct to video (what do we call that now, btw? Direct to streaming? Direct to rent?)
  4. I saw Creed with my dad around Christmas, but before that I can't remember the last time I saw a movie with another actual person. I get off work at 3:30 PM and when new movies come out I don't want to wait to go see them when most people I know typically get off around 5-6ish, so I just go around 4-4:30 and there's usually not a whole lot of people in the theater around that time, it's pretty great.
  5. I'm interested in this solely due to the fact that it's not found footage. I just can't do that style anymore.
  6. I really do think that there is a lot to be said for stories that are arrow-straight set within a world that is completely chaotic. The two best movies I've seen in the past several years are The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road, and both of them are bone thin on actual plot, but completely full on story and character, which I've continuously expressed as my personal favorite aspect of any book, movie, or show. Both of those movies have characters that feel like they have mountains of backstory, but instead of just shitting into the ears of the audience with contrived expository dialogue or energy sucking monologues, we're instead refreshingly shown their nuance through the interaction they have with their surrounding environments. By doing that, these worlds feel real and lived-in and teeming with the idea that a wide array of stories are happening off-camera, and the characters feel more real because of that. The plot of The Revenant can be summed up in a few seconds. "A man gets left for dead and uses the betrayal as the fuel for his survival." Likewise, Fury Road can be summed up as "A group of women who are slaves to a world created by men decide that they want to pave their own future. Also, Max makes a cameo." Those movies aren't about those basic plot points though, they're simply the vehicles that our characters are driving, and I'd much rather see characters driving the plot than the other way around.
  7. Yeah I'm doing the same thing. I'm not going to go see Carol or Room in the theater, but stuff like The Revanant, Mad Max, and Star Wars? Yeah those are must watch in the theater type movies. I did go see Creed in the theater around Christmas with my dad, and that was a really cool theater experience because people were actually cheering Donnie on like we were all watching a real fight.
  8. Perfect. Creed was incredible. Best "Rocky" movie since the first one.
  9. FOX movies don't give a got damm about the comics. Which is why most of them suck.
  10. Well if you ask me, this is definitely a movie you're going to want to see in the theater. I don't think it's a stretch to say that it's probably the most gorgeous movie that's ever been filmed. One of the few times that I've been so pulled into a movie that I could actually feel how ******* cold everyone must have been. There is one particularly brutal scene in the movie, and despite the fact that I was in the theater with about 5 other people, everyone was visibly squirming in their seats and a couple of them were yelling "UGH! OH! Stop!" it was definitely hard to watch. DiCaprio and Hardy were unbelievable, and Domhnall Gleeson was as good as he always is. I don't know that visually there will ever be another movie like it, but I definitely hope so, because it's a pretty great way to shoot a movie, using nothing but natural light.
  11. Going to use my AMC gift card for The Revanant today after work. Bart Scott.
  12. I don't know who Gina Carano is playing, but the chick with Colossus is something called Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Apparently she's a little known X-Men character.
  13. The world's most classically beautiful and talented actress Cate Blanchett has seemingly joined the cast of Thor: Ragnarok. I hope to allah she's a villain.
