Trailer for The Continental Hotel Artemis. Looks pretty great to me, regardless of the inevitable John Wick comparisons.

Honestly, I think we're all better off having John Wick clones over all the Taken clones we were getting for years.

So the new Jurassic World trailer is out. It looks embarrassing.

That's what this movie is about? Um, alright, I guess.

Like, I honestly don't know what to think. I'll see it in the theater, I love giant dinosaurs stomping around wrecking poo poo. But the giant sea dinosaur seems like it should probably be it's own movie. Kind of a bigger deal than the other dinosaurs, in a "Welp, I guess we as a species are done using boats" kind of way.

In fact, isn't that basically The Meg?

Not having assigned seating in every Cinema basically makes you a third world country. If I can't snag the best seats long before the movie and then arrive at the last minute I wouldn't go see any movies.

Very few theaters here in Orlando have assigned seating, and the ones that do are a haul to get to from where I'm at. As a result, yes, I barely every go to the theater.

If I could spend, say, $30 and see a movie at my house on day one, I 100% would.

I'm glad the shot of Peter is resonating because I have been laughing at that shot for weeks.

That's Rob Delaney from Disaster btw, a show you should watch.

That's one of the best gags I've seen in a trailer...maybe ever. From the setup of seeing them on the plane, to the end where we see Peter, and the trailer says, "Yup, mother fucker's here, too."

It's perfect.

This is somehow the first time I heard that actors have voice doubles for live action stuff.

Right? I was about to ask, "...Jodie Foster's voice actress? She's a real person, why does she need a voice actress?"

Also, 87 minutes sure is a short movie. But I agree that most movies are too long now, so I'll take a nice, short, focused action movie (or one with 7 minutes it doesn't need, I guess).

It's for the dubbed European versions. A lot of countries like France, Spain, Italy and Germany don't really do subtitles (these days you can find subtitled films in cinemas but not everywhere). All the famous English-speaking actors you can think of? Most of us have never heard their actual voice. Also sometimes you recognise the voice actors' voice in commercials or video games.

Ohhhh, that makes a lot more sense. I thought you meant in case Foster wasn't available for ADR or something.

I've never heard of Sterling Brown, Thomas Jane is in DTV movies all the time, Keegan Key known mostly for tv comedy, aside from Keanu I haven't seen anything with him theatrically, Halbrook is another tv guy for the most part, he was ok as the villain in Logan but that's about the only notable release.

This isn't a statement of quality, most have done great work, but you're insane if you think any of these guys qualify as blockbuster A-listers.

Sterling K. Brown is blowing up right now. He's a regular on This Is Us, was in Black Panther, and is the lead in the upcoming Hotel Artemis (which has come up a few times in this very thread). It's getting to a point where, if you don't know who he is, that's on you.

Ending the Freddie movie at Live Aid seems like a really lovely idea. Is it just going to end with, "And Queen was just such an awesome band that everyone loved! (Oh, also, Freddie got AIDS and died.)"?

The only good biopic is Walk Hard.

It's weird, when googling for some good biopics, there are movies that, I guess, are technically biopics, but I don't seem them as ones. Like Goodfellas. And Wolf of Wall Street. And Schindler's List, I guess? So I'm not sure what the difference is in what I consider a biopic and what I don't.

I know here we're just talking about musician biopics. But still.

feedmyleg posted:

A biopic by nature tries to cover a huge swath of much ground, generally jumping between multiple eras of a person's life to try to capture a person's entire life story in around 2 hours. These are separate from movies based on true events with characters who are based on real people, which generally focus on one set of events to tell one story. Either can be 90%+ fictional, or hew relatively close to true events.

But a biopic is literally a biographical picture, one that tries to encapsulate a figure in their entirety. Occasionally biopics can be good. It's rare, but it happens. Like The Avaiator. But usually they're utterly forgettable because you might as well read a Wikipedia page.

So Lincoln wouldn't be considered a biopic (which covers a small period of time, mainly about him trying to do this one thing), but Goodfellas would (which basically covers the life of Henry Hill up to joining Witness Protection)?

I continue to be impressed by how much this series recovered after one bad entry (MI:2). They keep getting better and better. It's at the point where I think I like these movies more than the current state of James Bond movies.

I also think Tom Cruise wants to kill himself, and is hoping to catch it on camera.

MI2 loving owns, nerds. You got a classic John Woo dove scene with Tom Cruise and you're still whining?

It's been a while, but I remember there being so many mask reveals it became ridiculous, and the flying off the motorcycles to fight each other seeming dumb. I also thought Dougary Scott made for a rather uninteresting villain. Mostly, I just thought it was boring, which never should have happened with a John Woo Mission Impossible movie. I know Woo loves his slow mo, but I remember MI:2 really overdoing it.

I didn't think "MI:2 was bad" was an unpopular opinion. Rotten Tomatoes (I know, but it's all we have for popular opinion) backs me up on this.



(I also really want to see "Mission Impossible Versus the Mob".)

In his heart he really wants to do comedy. He auditioned for the Jack Donaghy role on 30 Rock, but the network wanted someone more famous. (Tina Fey said she wishes she could have given him the part.) So I think he's probably not listening to his agent, and is really trying to make the comedy thing work.

I've only ever heard of Teen Titans in the context of a children's cartoon, and then another cartoon that my nephew said was even more childish. So, I guess what my question is, who is the target audience for this neck-snapping bloodfest?

People who were young when the first cartoon was out, got mad that the new cartoon was more childish, and are slightly older now and want a dark action-y edgy show.
