Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

Give Brave another chance Rand. We ran it for Paddy's day last year and it was much better than I remembered, and I actually wound up really enjoying it. It did almost make my personal choice too, believe it or not! The top of final list it pretty studio/blockbuster heavy, but then what else are you...

Re: YouTube Goodness

I know Batman Returns went off in its own indulgent directions (as much as I love that film), but I find it a shame that the '89 original doesn’t get the love it once did and still deserves.

Re: Man of Steel, Justice League and DC MOVIES

Sorry to hijack your Harley chat, but we just ran Brightburn tonight, which kind of riffs on the Man Of Steel/Snyder take on Superman, or rather Superboy, or even a pre-Superboy Clark Kent. While expectations were low following some comments from others, we largely found the film to be okay...not gr...

Re: Oscar Chat 2020

I don’t think I said it "doesn’t matter", just that "he gets to keep this one" when he won for directing. Interesting about who gets it though. I wonder where they/it actually ends up!

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

Storks was just a crazy film, as was Trolls, actually, both were just good time movies, but ultimately had little substance. The Dragons were good, but the series was one of diminishing returns and, without really seeing the new one too many times, kind of muddied my memory of that one too. M3 stuck...

Re: Oscar Contest 2020

That’s appalling. Hopefully it should be obvious and you can sift through and keep multiple players disqualified. More than usual it really would be nice for one of the regular visitors to the boards to win this year. Maybe we should have it that you need to make an undisclosed number of posts durin...

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

I’m as surprised as anyone, since I only just about liked the first and hated the second one. But Martin Short is heartbreaking in it, it has some amazingly directed action sequences, and the humour is actually smart-funny, as opposed to being just smart-alecky funny. And the rendering still stands ...

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

I thought we had until tonight! Oh well, I started by listing evetything out, regardless of year, and just immediately losing stuff that I knew wouldn’t make my cut (mostly stuff that, having seen it, I’m happy not worrying about seeing again soon). So that wiped out a good portion of titles that le...

Re: DISNEY BUYS 20TH CENTURY FOX

Seems like the text is in danger of disappearing? Maybe it’ll look a little better in motion, but I don’t remember the Fox version having the bottom of the lettering in so much shadow from being further back on the "ledges". Nice that they kept the basic approach, though, even if this could have bee...
