Would getting a DVD of Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas count? From what I've seen and heard, it's basically the greatest "It's so bad, it's good" Christmas movie ever made and I want to buy it via Amazon.

Yeah you can have that Razz

Avatar 2 will finally begin shooting this fall/autumn. It's excpetedt o come out around Christmas time in 2018.

I still don't know why it took so long for it to get made. Yes, Rothman had a hand in some of it when he was still in charge of Fox. But nothing explains for the causes after Rothman left...

Honestly, he had already played one iconic wizard in The Lord of the Rings, casting him as Dumbledore would have been treating his role as Gandalf as a crutch and basically typecasting McKellan as a wizard for another ten years. Gandalf isn't Dumbledore, and vice versa. I personally thought Richard Harris portrayed Dumbledore as I had imagined from the book, but having to gel that with Sir Ian's performance would have felt jarring.

Over the weekend, re-release of 2007 Indian film "Guru" beat it by 10 GBP, and 2013 Spanish film "Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang" by 63 GBP. High stakes here, high stakes.

LOL That's what I expected. It's visually faithful to the source material but lacks any real depth. Dissappointing.

It's a guilty pleasure film I think. I don't like the series at all but i compare it to Saw. You know the sequels get more and more over the top but if you're a fan you get drawn into the story and want to see where the characters end up. 

As for popularity? Characters and a story that people care about like I mentioned . Beautiful people, beautiful cars and crazy action.

No matter how crazy it gets you want to stay and see where they take it. If you're a fan that is.

But it's only going to be a matter of time before people get sick of it after a while. Let's face it, the only reason why the last one made so much was because of how it was Paul Walker's final movie. Not much different then how Heath Ledger got that posthumous Oscar for the Joker since that was his last movie.

I think F&F will run out of steam eventually. To be honest, most franchises that (so far) are not superhero movies are liable to run out of steam if they protract it out for much longer than they should. To date, at least we know that there will be a definitive ending to the Jurassic sequel trilogy.

F&F 8 has the biggest box office opening of all time with $532.5 million in the weekend opening.

How? Why? I get that it's an action movie with good looking people and good looking cars, but other then that, I still don't get how this became so popular.

Well, at least it knocked off that dumbass Boss Baby movie off the top spot. So there's at least one positive that came out all this...

This made my heart sink, not just The Boss Baby overtaking Power Rangers and all that shite, but 'F8 of the Furious' overtaking Jurassic World (and possibly The Force Awakens, we'll see) for best opening weekend (and probably world wide total) really bums me out. How is a franchise about meatheads driving uber-fast make so much money?!?! At least Jurassic Park, Marvel, DC and Star Wars make sense!

I think it makes about as much sense as with those others. I have never seen a single minute of any of those films, but the appeal for certain demographics is obvious. I don't care either way about box office, mostly the films at the top are dumb popcorn trash.

After years and years of putting it off and off, because *Adam Sandler*, I finally sat down to watch Mr Deeds. Because, you know I must watch every Winona Ryder film eventually, as you'd guess. And what a piece of complete sh*t it was. It's been a long time I've seen anything so terrible. I know Sandler's "comedies" are generally horrible anyway, but oh my god. I mean, I guess it wasn't a total scam like some of his other productions, but still... what the hell was that. Stupidest premise, stupidest characters, stupidest cheap jokes. With the exception of two instances (someone yelling "nobody cares" to Sandler after he says "I love New York", and Winona boobs joke in the house fire scene) I never smiled once. Only rolled my eyes. This easily surpasses "The Letter" in the bottom of Winona's films. 2000's were sad decade for her, both on and off screen. No wonder she went mental after being in this trash. Screw you Adam Sandler and your friends.

I can only think of one reason why: Paul Walker.

People saw F&F7 since that was his last big movie and now they wanted to see this one since it was the first one made without him. "Let's see how this movie does without Paul Walker." That is the only thing I can think of.

Fate of the furious has a chance to beat the biggest opening of all time (TFA). And of course that would mean JW as well. I had no idea the franchise made THAT much money internationally.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/04/16/the-fate-of-the-furious-beats-star-wars-the-force-awakens-for-biggest-global-opening


Edit: I see this was already posted above me(fail lol). But dang Universal is in a really good position with their films right now. I don't expect JW2 to do as good as JW, and it has a higher budget. But unless people are burnt out already it's probably going to be a massive success.

And look forward to seeing atleast 3-4 more fast and the furious I'd say.

Ugh...No. Just.....just no. I get that it has good looking cars and people. But other then that it has nothing else. I still say that Paul Walker's death was the reason why the last one made as much as it did, not to mention this one too since people wondered how it would turn out since his death. It has no deep story to it, no deep thinking, no sci-fi elements (which is what at least Transformers has going for it), just...nothing else.

I feel the same as you. I'm just saying that if the money keeps talking it's going to keep going. I mean when you are getting to the 8th installment and your money is increasing that's incredibly impressive.

And I know the whole Paul Walker thing pushed people to 7, and to some extent this one.  But I would bet good money the next is going to do incredible as well. I know so many people in the real who are in love with this franchise for its "family" (cringe lol). 

And as much as it hurts to say. There are just as many people in the world who are fans of cars(casual every day car fantatics like me) and beautiful people than there are fans of lightsabers and Dinosaurs. 

So I'm pretty confident it's going to continue for a few more.

Edit: and the thing that makes it different from transformers is that loyal fan base who loves the characters. The characters in bayformers are hated by most, yet the Furious family is beloved.

I can chime in a little bit on this as someone who only passingly liked the first 3 or 4 F&F films, but really enjoyed 5-7 (haven't seen F8 yet). I look forward to seeing just how ridiculous they can get. I mean, there are people flinging themselves off cars across bridges, racing tanks, dropping out of skyscrapers in sports cars, evading military helicopters through the streets of LA, and having parking garage rooftop fights with oversized wrenches and pipes. Not every movie needs to make think, they just need to be entertaining, and damn if these don't entertain. It's why I like bad movies too, like Troll 2. I don't need to think hard about it, but it's so bad it goes right back around to being hilariously enjoyable.

It's like Jurassic Park 3. A lot of people hate it for being "Ahhh, run away" and nothing more, and while it is that, I still enjoy it because I love dinosaurs and despite being far below the first two films, for the most part it still manages to be an entertaining film. And this doesn't work for all bad movies for me either, if you were wondering. For example, no matter how many dinosaurs they shove in, a movie like "Age of the Dinosaurs" from the Asylum, is just a bad movie. It's stilted, the CGI is terrible, the story is bland, but it's not bad enough to be entertaining, it just ends up boring. Or like Sharknado, no matter how they try to make them "so good they're bad", they just come off terrible to me because they're trying too hard to be something that really aren't made that way.

"A Los Angeles detective seeks out the ruthless gang that stole his dog.". If Bruce Willis can look bothered about acting for change, this could interesting and old schooley. The poster looks pretty cool and it's supposedly action-comedy-thriller which supports the image you get of it. Will add that to the list of watches for 2017. It's always good to find original films nowadays that you may look forward to. Although I see that there are people involved in it that were writers in crap like "Cop Out" also starring Bruce cashing-in Willis, so that isn't particularly good sign, but whatever, I'll give it a chance.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4694544/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_1

Speaking of Famke Janssen who's in that film, I hadn't really seen her in anything for few years. The last ones I saw were the Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters which I honestly really liked despite the reviews, and then that terrible Taken 3 which I couldn't even finish. So I was curious to see her in something. But seriously, I mean seriously, how the hell is she 52 years old? She still looks like celebrating her 40th birthday! Okay, the arms may be closer to her true age, and obviously make-up always saves somewhat in the face, but god damn. I think by 60 she'll look 45.

They have actually been mentioning a call of duty movie since like 2008-2010. Somewhere in that time frame. And the discussion has popped up a few times in that period.

But now they are talking about it again....

Ehh I don't think it'll happen personally.

I could see this being made since COD is far more closer to real life then most other video games. Not only that, but it doesn't quite have the burden of trying to carry a story like the soon-to-be-made Metal Gear Solid movie does. (Which I'm not thrilled about. I'm a huge fan of MGS, but I just don't see that movie being good as a direct adaptation.)

Welp
They have actually been mentioning a call of duty movie since like 2008-2010. Somewhere in that time frame. And the discussion has popped up a few times in that period.

But now they are talking about it again....

Ehh I don't think it'll happen personally.

I could see this being made since COD is far more closer to real life then most other video games. Not only that, but it doesn't quite have the burden of trying to carry a story like the soon-to-be-made Metal Gear Solid movie does. (Which I'm not thrilled about. I'm a huge fan of MGS, but I just don't see that movie being good as a direct adaptation.)


I'm not a MGS fan, but I'm also not sold on that director personally. I'm not sure about him.


And the thing about the Cod movie is what universe does or could it have? Cod is mostly all about the MP. There really isn't like a huge story with characters that people are attached to. Each dev has multiple universes going on. What would separate a Cod movie from your average military movie is my question.


Edit: also looks like F&F 10 will be the last. http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/04/19/fast-and-the-furious-series-to-end-with-tenth-film-says-producer?abthid=58f7f21bffc5f10a21000017

From what I've heard, he did an interview with a Metal Gear news site and he came across as a total fanboy. I'm not in favor of such a movie at all. If it was an adaptation of the original 2 Metal Gear games that were released on the MSX, then those could work since they don't have as much moving parts. I'm part of a MGS Facebook group and a lot of the other old timers are worried about this as well. Personally, I think that it all comes down to if Sony Pictures gets merged with the video game branch or if it gets sold off. If the second choice happens, then I think it might get made, but under another studio and gets turned into one of those movies that's strays from the source material yet still manages to keep the fundamentals and winds up being a good movie. (The Keaton/Burton Batman movies are good examples.)

As for F&F, at least it will finally end. Though I was hoping for the 9th movie to end it...

James Bond Franchise Rights Being Pursued By Five Different Studios, Paramount and Disney not included

The deal only included production of ONE new Bond film, most likely one with Craig, and then MGM and Eon will probably make a new deal for a new set of films starring a new actor as James Bond.

If this gets sold off, then Sony Pictures only has the Spider-Man rights as there main cash cow. But given how they have to share the profits from the MCU Spider-Man movies with Disney/Marvel-since MCU writers have the creative control-that leaves only the spin-offs, which may be just to make Sony Pictures looks better for sale.

I see this as the beginning of the end for Sony Pictures.

No reviews out for "phoenix forgotten". So I assume it's either awful or it's because it's super obscure... maybe both.

I really didn't think they would only stop at 10 in the franchise.

Eventually they'll end that franchise cause there's only so much you can do with cars.

The Transformers franchise would potentially beg to differ, but yeah I really hope this franchise ends before it jumps the shark for the nth time.

Except that Transformers has far more nostalgia then F&F does. Not only that, but it still has more interesting stuff: Dinosaurs via the Dinobots, science fiction, high tech weapons, robots, aliens, and even anti-big government messages in both the last one and this new movie. F&F is mostly about good looking people and fast cars.

The difference with Transformers and cars is that those cars transform into giant robots Razz

I finally watched another of those checkmark-films that's been on my list forever and forever but that I just never got around watching because of the subject matter, Moulin Rouge. It was my friend's 30th birthday today and because this is one of her very favorite films, I kind of honored her by watching this by myself.

Now, for the first 20 minutes or so I was utterly bored and annoyed. I have nothing against musicals, they're not something I look out for but my second favorite film of all time (Wizard of Oz) is one and I love musical numbers in animated films and cartoons most of the time. So it wasn't that, it was because it seemed like overplayed music video. The dialogue was so sparse it was hard not to see it as anything else. Also I do not care for high amount of dancing. Of course I adored the amazing hyperactive visuals and choreography, who wouldn't, but it was my fear that this would be like Citizen Kane to me where I respect it for the technical reasons, but rather not really watch it because the narrative and premise is so very ehh... (and yes for the record I do not care for Citizen Kane. Casablanca beats it 100-0)

However, after that first 20 minutes or so, I did become intrigued as I slowly started immersing in to that weird world of the Moulin Rouge, and by the 1 hour mark I think I kind of loved it? It's a slow burner I suppose. After it was over, I kind of got the hype it has. Do I think it's perfect? No, there are faults in it, the love aspect in particular is very thinly one dimensional, but I guess that's a throwback to old films. And also I've seen so much trash and Hollywood sequel reboot cash cow nonsense lately that anything with artistic vision reminds me what it feels to watch a... you know, real movie. Movies used to be fun right? Not a chore?

I had pretty good time after all. A strong 8/10. It's good to see actual movies between "movies".
