Re: UPDATED! AV Countdown for iPhone, Windows Phone, and Android

I've not kept up with posting the countdown pages from the app in this forum. Here's the ones I missed (except for ones that have already passed like Rock Dog!) and what's just been added this week. The app now has everything coming through the rest of the year: cars.jpg leap.jpg coco.jpg dme3.jpg p...

Very true but it's probably also down to Taika Waititi's direction as well.

Re: DreamWorks' Boss Baby

AV review: http://animatedviews.com/2017/the-boss-baby-film/ Not much to say since the film doesn't have much meat on the bone! In the review, I mention "for over half the movie there's a completely reasonable, and somewhat clever, explanation for a briefcase-carrying baby who has wads of cash ...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

I liked it. It was definitely more "real" (for lack of a better word coming to mind!) than any other X-Men film. But I also felt it wasn't as deep as it was trying to be. If you scratch the surface a bit the story really was pretty basic. I loved the beginning and set-up. But once they hit...

Re: Moonlight

I haven't seen Moonlight , but it was considered the frontrunner long before La La Land (which I also haven't seen yet) gained so much momentum. It's so insane to me it became the frontrunner early on, let alone actually won, since it's very much not in the Academy's wheelhouse (since it stars memb...

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

Not even sure why a film like"Hillary's America" was on their radar. Razzies are supposed to be a kind of fun mocking of Hollywood. If they're going to start "recognizing" minor, low-budget things not much more than a youtube documentary, no one is going to care or pay attention ...
