    I would pay to see Shia Lebouefs character get his ass kicked.

    Always had a thing for Karen Allen too...

    Not saying he wasnt good...he was. But the character annoyed the shit out of me and I just wanted him to get punched in the mouth. Hard.

    Did we really want and/or need this?


    That said, I'll probably go see it.

    Of course the Russian superhero movie has a man bear, I can only hope there is some pig part of that man bear.

    saw passengers this weekend. the movie trailer led me to believe they were going to try and fix the ship for the majority of the movie.

    spoiler alert: they spend all of 10 minutes 'fixing' it, rest is bull shit. don't waste your time.

    It's a director who never compromises, never made a bad movie, great cinematographer, great compositor. I had no hopes for GITS but this could be good. Hell it's risky to say it but I might be better than the original if Villeneuve brings his a Game. Incendies and Sicario are very good.

    Guardians is really fun. Dumber but you forget about that since you laugh most of the movie. Also I really think wrestlers make for great comedic actors.

    Villeneuve + Deakins + Screenplay from the guy who wrote the original and the guy who wrote logan + Music by Johan Johansson. Can't get a better crew

    As much as I hated that Amy Schumer movie I really liked John Cena in it. So it's 3 good wrestling actors. He also has a small role in an amazing movie "The Wall". It should soon hit US cinemas.

    Same here, i liked him as an actor and felt sympathetic towards his character, who was treated like shit by Schumer's insufferable queen bitch.

    As for Blade Runner: i'm not going near that trailer, but the team they assembled is incredible and it looks like they finally made the world properly dusty. I guess Ridley Scott knew that rain just looks cool, but i'm glad that they are going for a look that is more in line with the book and are not trying to ape the rain soaked noir aesthetic of the original.

    Schumer really annoys me. I'm all for feminist issues, I'm left to Marx but her whole stick is behaving like a frat bro and calling it empowering. Not to mention she does one thing over and over again.

    Cena was also really good in SNL recently.

    Wait what? You mean that 2008 german movie?

    Also Just came from a Festival screening of Okja an jesus it is amazing but it will make everyone cry. It's like Free Willy mixed with 80s Paul Verhoeven mixed with Vegan propaganda.

    That has to be horrible, right? Most of German cinema is awful enough, but the poster alone raises so many red flags that i'd steer clear.

    No idea. Never knew of it's existence. Assumed it's some cheap straight to VOD or something only Germans watch. I've seen like 5 german movies in the last 10 years

    The terrorists win every time someone remakes a classic movie. Come up with your own fucking new and unique ideas.

    I hate remakes but see the talent attached. The crew here is honestly more talented than people who did the original (Deakins, Villenuve, Johansson)

    Seen it already. It's a very good movie but don't expect a typical horror. It's an arthouse film in a horror world. Havee you seen or read "the Road" similar topics mentioned here.

    Then this might bore you. Long artistic takes, slow pacing. It's a story about people more than a horror.

    I really want to visit it. Too bad I want to change my jurb since my company goes to AFM in LA every November but there have been some budget cuts so I only go to Euro trade shows. Still I'd rather go TIFF.

    Saw Baby Driver, really enjoyed the first 80% of it. Thought the last 20% and ending didn't do the rest of the movie justice.
