  1. Might as well start it off with this thread 😛 what have you guys watched while the boards boards have been down? me: Rampage 2.5/5 Logan 5/5 Flower 3.5/5 Set It Up 4/5 (seriously, this was an actual good romcom)
  2. Following news that the antitrust laws preventing film studios from owning theater chains may be reversed, Amazon is looking to be the first studio to take advantage and is reportedly looking to buy Landmark Theaters. Landmark has just over 50 theaters in 27 markets across the country. It's easy to imagine Amazon turning the economics of theater ownership on its head. Having a massive conglomerate willing to use the theater experience as a backdoor for all their other consumer products could either hasten the demise of theaters or change the industry forever. It's hard to see this going through without other content companies joining in.
  3. https://moviepass.com Has anyone here used Movie Pass. I have a co worker that has and it seems to be accepted to nearly all the theaters here in Austin. Seems like a good deal even if you only see 2 movies that month.

  5. James Gunn has been removed as director of the Guardians Of The Galaxy series after a batch of old social media dispatches were unearthed that touched on areas like pedophilia and rape. He should've been sacked for the boring, bloated mess that was GotG 2 - COME AT ME, BROS!
  6. Holy cow. This is top shelf Spike Lee.i just woke up and I still can’t stop thinking about what I saw and how I felt. There is not a wasted frame in the flick and the last act of the movie is equal parts thrilling, chilling, and angering. This is is a story that hurts particularly in light of what’s happening in our country right now.

    September 7th release date.
  8. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/james-bond-idris-elba-oo7-black-diversity-daniel-craig-a8484281.html I saw a few white nationalists upset about the news, so now I'm doubly hoping.
  9. https://www.slashfilm.com/the-meg-early-buzz/ I'm really surprised people are really enjoying the early screenings! I just have to remember to turn my brain off at the theater and tell myself it's not the book. We'll be seeing it in IMAX 3D opening weekend. I'm thinking somewhere in the 40% range on RT, and hoping for a Jurassic World type reception.
  10. Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth are no longer boldly going where no person has gone before. The two actors were in negotiations to star in Star Trek 4, but sources say that talks between the two actors and the companies making the new installment, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, have fallen apart, with both sides walking away from the table.
  11. Easily my favorite movie of the year so far. The dialogue is so on point, and every aspect of the movie hits on every level. And the comedy. You wouldn't expect it, but the movie is fucking hilarious. I didn't want the movie to end--I'm ready for the TV series--The Life and Times of Miles & Smiles. Both Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal are going to be movie stars sooner than later. Up until the final dramatic scene of the film (which is Diggs through and through and absolutely spectacular), I'd go so far as to say Casal steals the movie. I have little doubt this film is going to be on the short list for best original screenplay at the awards.

  13. I really liked it. It was really just more of the same, but I like how Scott was made out to be even more of an average joe than before. I mean, he isn't an average joe really, but I feel like he is one of the realist(?) heroes out of everyone one and it just makes him likable. The villains were weak, but it wasn't like that yellow jacket guy was a great villain. Ghost just felt forced and I didn't really care about her or her plight. Especially as blaming Hank is just a dumb reason. Sure, Hank firing her dad was the reason why he started his own project, but like it wasn't Hank's fault her dad sucked. Honestly, just a more competent Sonny would have been a better villain. But whatever, her powers were cool. And I hope the ending means that Scott will also end up getting non-suit powers. While that will weaken his normalness it'll still be cool. Oh, and I was kinda expecting the Mom to not have aged. Like time is slower in the subatomic realm. Kinda weird how she had some weird clothes on and no clue what she ate in there. Maybe it will be explained in Antman 3 but I do hate how her survival and changes were glossed over. Overall, I did find it funnier which is the biggest reason why I liked it more. It had the same kind of jokes, but I felt they were improved. EDIT: I hope there is a SUPER-villain in the next movie tho. I doubt it will happen but I'd prefer the next movie's villain to not be after Hank's tech. 2 movies is enough.

  16. https://www.wsj.com/articles/disneys-profit-rises-23-but-its-costs-climb-too-1533677299 Three streaming services: Disneyflix - Family Hulu - Adult ESPN+ - Sports Possible bundles for people who want all three. Disneyflix (or whatever it will be called) will be quite cheap to start, "substantially lower than Netflix." No word if Hulu will actually come to Canada (or Disneyflix). Plans for Fox assets: Fox Searchlight - Work exclusively on original TV series and movies for streaming services Fox Film Studio - Work on blockbuster films exclusively for theatres, including X-Men films and Avatar Fox TV Studio - Work on adult-oriented TV shows for FX and Hulu What worries me is the mention that X-Men will stay at Fox, and not be folded into Marvel. I would assume that Marvel/Disney will still effectively be called the shots, in terms of fitting the X-Men and F4 into the MCU, much like they've done with Spider-Man w/Sony (although to a greater extent in this case, since they actually own Fox). It also sucks that Searchlight will focus on streaming stuff. I hope they try to focus on quality, and not just make Netflix-level stuff.
  17. Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the last Marvel film to come to Netflix. Per the New York Times, Disney and Netflix's licensing deal will end with the Ant-Man sequel. Starting with Captain Marvel, every movie Disney releases in theaters will only come to its own streaming service instead of Netflix. However, for now, Marvel shows such as Jessica Jones and Daredevil will still remain on Netflix, a spokeswoman for Disney informed the New York Times.
  18. In an effort to get more people to watch the actual Oscars broadcast, the Academy will play edited versions of less popular categories and will be adding a new category for "outstanding achievement in popular film, eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming." I guess I can now be proven wrong when I said that there was no way that Black Panther would win an (non technical) Oscar. On a related note:

  23. https://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4423&p=.htm Congrats to Black Panther! I'm glad it reached threshold and is among some incredibly rare company.
  24. The opening paragraph of this review is pretty damn spot-on, including what my thought process was when I got the email form Netflix about this movie on Saturday morning: https://io9.gizmodo.com/michael-penas-alien-invasion-movie-extinction-is-mostly-1827874725 And from February: https://io9.gizmodo.com/netflix-saves-scifi-film-extinction-from-well-extinct-1822844421 At one point I actually asked the person I was watching with if this was a Netflix Cloverfield movie. I'd say it's enjoyable enough if you want to watch it with someone and goof on the movie while you're watching it (that's what my viewing session turned into), but that you definitely shouldn't bother watching it by yourself. Also I was convinced Lizzy Caplan was Zooey Deschanel until I looked he movie up on IMDB.
  25. Based on the twitter replies, what's the over/under Mackenzie Davis quits social media by the end of the week?
