Re: El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019)

In early 2018, while Paul was in New York shooting The Path, Gilligan called him and shared that he had written a movie about Jesse. "I'm like everybody else on the planet — I think Vince and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that?" ...

Re: The Irishman (2019)

isnt that true of any aspect of the movie? -Vader The de-aging and the voices are going to be the most obvious aspects for me personally that would be distracting. Scorsese is going to do what he does best, so I have no doubt it will be a very well made film--but will it be great? A lot of question...

imagine thinking this didn't occur to Scorsese

Scorsese is a master--so I expect it to be addressed, but if it isn't--it could be cringeworthy.

Re: The Irishman (2019)

Assuming they pull off the de-aging process. How are they going to handle the change in a person's voice? For instance, anyone familiar with Pacino in his younger days, knows he sounds nothing like he does now. If I"m looking at Pacino in his 30's or 40s in this movie and he sounds like a raspy 70 ...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

You talking Film Noir?? One of my favorites... Maltese Falcon, Big Sleep, Touch of Evil, Third Man, Asphalt Jungle, The Killing (early Kubrick), Dark Passage (underrated Bogart flick), Riffi (great French film noir), Postman Always Rings Twice. Casablanca (not generally considered film noir, but ha...

Re: Joker (2019)

I guess I should have added 'to the same extent'. This stuff does manifest itself in different forms elsewhere, you're right, but what Joker tackles is something that appears more specific to North America, hence the nerve that it's striking with critics there (and, ultimately, far more mixed or do...

Re: Joker (2019)

Art is subjective but to imply that one cannot be objective about anything is incorrect. A film critic is meant to judge the merits of the film based on the quality of the filmmaking, not based on their social or political views. For instance, consider the difference between a reporter and a commen...
