Re: Hustlers (2019)

I really loved how Ramona forgives Destiny and still loves her despite taking the plea deal. In a lot of movies and shows Ramona would hate Destiny but not here and I appreciated that. It also shows Ramona's empathy since she too has a daughter and would have done the same thing. yeah. what hustler...

Re: Joker (2019)

It's worse than bad, it's boring. Utterly devoid of an identity, hollow in intent, and no clue whatsoever what it's trying to be. Nothing more than a kid driving dad's car, and for a movie as purposefully incendiary as this that's borderline irresponsible. Philips' direction is the showiest I've see...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

It does suck.

One of the things I hope most out of TROS is that it makes TLJ retroactively click for people a lot more.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

It’s truly a case of caving to the trolls and letting them feel like they “won”. Maybe, but it's probably more likely Disney doesn't think Rose--a quirky asian character who was in TLJ's most hated storyline--will help promote the movie or move merchandise. This fits the same narrative in 2015 when...

Re: Hustlers (2019)

I think I just really liked the way female friendships were explored, especially in an environment like a strip club. It can be so valuable to have friends in a place like that. Also as someone who remembers 2007-2013 the musical cues were really on point. It's like such a small detail but it reall...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Yep and if JJ gives her nothing to do I’m going to be annoyed since he said that Kelly was what he was most thankful for from Rian. Hope that wasn’t just lip service. I'm hoping it's an epic partly for this reason, so every character gets at least a few moments to shine. The ST has way more charact...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Disney removing Rose from merchandise- https://www.slashfilm.com/rose-missing-from-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-merchandise/ Pathetic and sad. This is a bizarre and horrible move in the best of times but I'm sure also hurtful to Kelly Marie Tran, who we all know should be protected at all costs....

Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe Discussion Thread

A lot of DC fans on Twitter are happy about these comments because it's a big fuck you to marvel apparently. But like he probably has the same thoughts about DC movies too. Didn't he drop out of producing Joker? Of course he has the same opinion on all comic book movies, probably even Nolan’s. "The...

Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe Discussion Thread

I dunno, ive always seen the MCU more as very expensive TV Show than a movie series. Phase 1 is Season 1, Phase 2 is Season 2, each Avengers movie is the "Season finale." They are monolithic by design and look more "TV" than Mad Men or Breaking Bad or The Americans. They all have cruddy sound mixes ...
