"Movie And A Show" Thread: Popcorn Optional

I concur, the only reason that I can think of as to why the Robocop reboot got made was for a quick cash grab. For everyone involved.

It was so lackluster and underwhelming that I sometimes wish it was never made in the first place.

Speaking of RoboCop sequels, it’s hard to believe that the same guy that directed RoboCop 2 also was the director for The Empire Strikes Back.

Also, I need Neil to focus on the sequel to District 9.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. In Theaters November 2, 2018
Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers

Long live Queen…

Watch Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe in the new trailer for #BoyErased, featuring the new original song “Revelation” by Troye Sivan & Jónsi. In theaters this November.
“Boy Erased” tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.

cheh,

so I’m watching this new show on CW called The Outpost— once again the casting directors struck gold. The main girl on this show is RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous. Unfortunately for the TnA content it’s a fantasy setting…sword/shield bow & arrow, magic stuff… which means the girls wear way too much damn clothing…so no good body shots so far, but damn it’s a good first impression… check it:

Holy SHIT it just keeps getting better the more I see as I scroll down her instagrammmm…

Goddamn DELICIOUS. This girl is prime time. I’ll keep tabs on this show for as long as I can, because it will probably get canceled.

*of course my other main deal at the moment is The Originals— final season; they are down to the last 3 episodes now, I think. I will miss that show so much… they have a spinoff planned though, based on Niklaus’ daughter, who is a hybrid of all 3 things-- wolf, vamp, witch.

shrug shoulders

I just watched 1985’s ‘Back to the Future’ again and it was almost like watching it for the first time. There were tons of details that I had completely forgotten about. The entire intro scene and most of the outro scene almost felt like they were alien. I even got chills in the scene where Marty’s hand was disappearing and I never even realized that Billy Zane was in Biff’s gang!


#147

Back to the Future may be one of the few movie franchise that literally had its sequels work despite being created because money.


#148

BTTF and it’s 2 sequels is arguably one of the best cinematic trilogies ever written and made.

The plotlines and character arcs really pay off; narrative and exposition is well executed, and the cast and production just superb for it’s time.


#149

Billy Zane still had hair. Man, I feel old AF lol


#150

…what?


#151

That’s the most epic thing about the franchise. The series literally ended with a cliffhanger but Zemeckis and Gale had no real intention of doing anything with it (which is why the original release and subsequent BD releases don’t have “TO BE CONTINUED”)

I think that’s one of the problems with movies now. Everything is written with the franchise financial gain in mind first and the story second.

M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series). This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider and Kevin Frakes, who executive produce. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum also serve as executive producers. A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.

I’m actually hyped for this…

Something about the eyes changed.

I was trying to see if the eyes had changed to but i cant really tell honestly. In some scenes they look a little different but in others they look the same.
