Honestly, I think the idea of a universe where superpowers are commonplace and acknowledged by the general public, but instead of being a superhero story the story is a mundane police procedural about the people who have to deal with these supers, is pretty compelling. I haven't read the comics, so I can't comment to the quality of the execution, but the idea itself is pretty solid. What is the part you think is dumb about it?

Yeah, the trailer seems fairly bland for the setup.

Reminds me of an old fiction idea, where vast nuclear destruction cut off the Earth from the colonized Moon/Mars and, a thousand years later, the radiation and whatnot had calmed down enough for a survey team. The ship has problems going through the radiation cloud, crashes, and the only survivor finds a world where pretty much everyone has some kind of super power. There's rampant powerism, and the rare ones born without powers are outcasts.

Has there ever been a movie "universe" like what Marvel is doing? There have been various movies that have had a number of sequels and remakes, plus some offshoots, and some movies (like prior DC characters) come from a shared universe but do not reference each other, but I don't know that there are large sets of interconnected movies like Marvel's.

Assassin's Creed is the only gaming series I can think of that would match, too; it's had sequels and side-stories, all of which are in the same universe. Other long-running games with many entries, like Call of Duty, rarely reference other entries in the series so far as I'm aware. The Legend of Zelda games will share the same themes/items for the most part (Link, Zelda, Triforce, Master Sword) but only reference each other obscurely for the most part.

Freddy vs Jason might have built up to something had they kept the original ending with Pinhead, but other than the collective works of Kevin Smith and occasional novelty crossovers like Alien vs Predator, shared universes were virtually unheard of in movies. Now even outside of the superhero subgenre, we've got projects on the way like Universal's monster-verse, Warner Bros. expanding on the Harry Potter movie-verse with an adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Sony is discussing the possibility of a cinematic universe based on Robin Hood.

Assassin's Creed would definitely fit the mold well, but I'd hope that such movies would be original stories and not just adaptations of the games.

Sure, but it's like training a lion or any other wild animals. No matter how well you train them, wild animals can easily turn on you with little provocation. It takes generations of breeding to get domesticated breeds. Hopefully the story will contextualize the motorcycle ride with the raptors adequately so it makes sense.

And given how hard JP have been pushing "they are smart" thing with Raptor its clear that they are atlest Crow level. And you can train Crows or atleast help them learn things.
Plus, I bet they will bring up Dolfin's in the movie with the whole Sea World thing they got going.

Just hope they get individual personality characteristics (thx google) and looks.

Even if they are as simple as: the alfa, the hungry, the sass, the lazy and the clever girl.

Judging from various reviews I’ve read, the film did more to make the Egyptians seem sympathetic (rather than making the people they enslaved sympathetic, which you think would be the damn point) and barely concentrated on Moses’ connection to his people. It’s as if the studio wanted a movie based around the Plagues and the Parting of the Red Sea, but didn’t want to go through the trouble of making it a good movie (likely under the logic of ‘the Biblethumpers will eat up any ol’ crap we toss ’em so long as it’s based on the Bible’).

No amount of quality acting, good directing, big-budget special effects, or even whitewashing can save a shitty script. Marketing can disguise a movie with a shit script (look at Twilight), but it can only do so for as long as people can’t actually watch the movie.

It seems so simple, doesn't it? It's only three distinct pieces, how hard could it be?

But consider that these kids are probably tired after going through the rest of the show, under intense time pressure (they only have three minutes to do this and the shrine is near the end of the temple), nervous about running into a temple guard, and have both the audience and Kirk Fogg shouting at them. On top of all this, the temple was designed and tested by adults with no consideration for the height of the short preteen participants. More often then not they'd have to jump just to reach the pieces of the statue. The Jester's Court had a similar problem, where the kids couldn't accurately match the poses on the wall because they were just too small.

I love shit like that. Game shows that were fucked up by that difference. Designed for kids but not tested by kids. And someone saying that looking back on most of them. Yea the size difference hammered many a run. I say Nick Arcade also had a similar problem with the senors being too high for all but the taller kids. And Double Dare and their damned flags.

And as for Legends we've got on top of size. Temple Guards that screw up or take too long.

If they play off of his role on the Daily Show, it could easily get too preachy, because his TDS bits are basically Blacksplaining the News, and that could easily alienate people if it's the majority of the show.

Piracy is supposedly the biggest issue facing the box office today, yet Hollywood regularly banks billions of dollars ever year at the global box office. The problem isn’t piracy or day-and-date theatrical/VOD releases, it's cinemas not doing enough to make the experience worth the expense. (Well, that, and Hollywood cranking out shit movies nobody wants to go see in theaters or VOD.)

Until there is actual hard evidence that day-and-date theatrical/VOD releases would hurt a film’s box office take, there is no reason to shit all over the idea other than ‘that’s how it’s always been done’. That kind of thinking is what almost led to the VCR becoming outlawed: the MPAA was frightened as fuck of the technology and didn’t want to deal with the disruption to the cinema-side business (until home video sales started outgrossing box office take, anyway).

Release windows are ridiculous. There is virtually no reason for them to exist other than ‘that’s how it’s always been done’. I can understand international release windows and all, but here in the States, I can’t think of a single reason why a film can’t open in theaters and home video/VOD simultaneously. The people who want to go see a big tentpole such as Avengers 2 in a theater will go see it in a theater, regardless of whether they could rent it from YouTube or whatever.
No.41562

The majority of movies *aren't* major tent-pole movies. Do you really think a movie like, say, Dumb and Dumber 2, is going to get a bigger cinema presence than its home presence? It's the sort of movie that people would much rather stay home and watch with friends over a bowl of weed than watch quietly in a dark theater with over a bowl of popcorn.

I think it will *help* the film industry, but I am also pretty damned sure it will hurt the cinemas themselves. Only a few blockbuster movies come out per year, and most of those come out in the summer--that's not really enough to sustain a cinema through Spring, Winter, and Fall when they're pumping out comedies and children's movies which, while great, are not really helped any by going to the theater to see.

Theaters just don't offer much vs. a home experience. You can get a 50" TV for $500, or about the cost of a couple watching 21 movies (non-3D, $12/person). A meh sound system would be $100-$200, or another 5-9 showings. You get no babies unless they're your own, no teenagers yammering, phone calls unless it's for you, you can pause the movie to go pee, the seating is the way you want it. As for food, it's not overpriced and you get all the variety you want.

Perhaps for a low-mid or upper-low family that only watches one or two movies a year wouldn't fall into this, but that's increasingly rare, I think. The only thing the theaters have going for them is artificial scarcity (well, when the viewer is a "law-abiding" citizen). The moment an exec figures out they can make oodles of money by just releasing the movies on basically everything at once (so that people can use the service of their choice, and thus are more likely to partake) theaters will die a sudden and gruesome death.

And in that missing the point of the whole thing. I think its quite reasonable in a sequel for them to be regulated much to the same position as they were in XGB.

No longer needed and therefore forgotten until they are needed once more. Have the reasoning why be that Ghosts are something we are conditioned not to believe in or think about so even three generations later things have gone back to "normal" as people once more close themselves off to the fantastic and even things as the StayPuft Marshmallow Man and Walking Liberty along with maybe a few RGB events become more folklore and urban legends.

Sequel Builds upon that lore and goes back to understanding why the Ghostbusters matter and will be needed at some point even if they aren't now.

A reboot misses the whole damn point and just won't work.

I got into Star Trek recently and I'm about to finish the second season of TOS but I want to know: How are the TOS movies compared to the series?

The movies largely excise the camp, but the good ones maintain the sense of fun and camaraderie the series had. Rule of thumb is: even-numbered movies great, odd-numbered movies terrible (except Star Trek III, which actually ain't that bad).

Everyone loves Wrath of Khan, but my favourite TOS movie is actually The Undiscovered Country with all the political allusions to the fall of the Berlin Wall. It's basically The Manchurian Candidate IN SPAAACE, which tickled an itch growing up.

I would. Enough time has passed since the original that it would make plenty of sense for there to be a passing of the torch, plus it builds upon an established universe without having to restart/retread old ground, or in an attempt to stand more on its own it risks altering the lore to the point it's in name only. If they're going to go the latter route then it should've been an original IP, not a Ghostbusters film.

Psych put it best when they need a remake.

>"The whole point of a remake is to choose something that showed serious promise, but failed to live up to expectations,"

And that is why Robocop remake failed it as the original was well done, memorable scenes and highly quotable. Same with Ghostbusters.

And its the key reason you don't remake classics and especially ones that have become a cultural staple.

And with Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy on top of that. Don't get me wrong, I loved Bridesmaids both for feminist reasons and because it was just genuinely really funny. But in this case? It sounds like Feig just wants to do Bridesmaids 2 in a Ghostbusters skin, in the same way that the much-derided Fantastic Four reboot looks like Trank trying to do Chronicle 2 in a Fantastic Four skin. Rather than make it a reboot that looks like it could easily shit all over the legacy of the original films he should've just let it be a distant sequel (the time lets him get away with stuff) or a spiritual successor without having to use the Ghostbusters name directly.

Considering the loudest complaints are centered on the film having an all-female cast, regardless of the actresses, I say the sexist label is justified.

Dan Aykroyd is also cool with the move.

>The Aykroyd family is delighted by this inheritance of the Ghostbusters torch by these most magnificent women in comedy.

One of the reasons reboots always suck is that they destroy the characters or setting by trying to make them something different so my way of looking at it is this:

The setting is modern day making it different from the 1980s and giving it room to be vastly updated and different in it's technology and world building.

The characters are all original.

So it is a reboot of the concept of Ghostbusters rather than the film universe itself, funny enough that is truer to the spirit of Ghostbusters than if you tried to recast the characters.

By all accounts it should be a new hope for returning reboots to what they should be, reinventions using the concept of an existing franchise that isn't really viable anymore.

That said, no I can't blame you for your apprehensions but I feel there is a little more hope this kind of reboot because it's trying to do something new from something old rather than ruin what was good by not understanding what made it good like in 99% of reboots.

Better to reinvent while passing the torch. Doing it as this is being Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston but as women. Ehhh.

Much as the title is cringing eXtreme Ghostbusters did do a fair job at passing the torch. Both showing the old tech was out of date and in need of an upgrade and also that the old team had just moved on and that Egon couldn't handle it anymore. This is going to get the same complaints as MoS got from critics because trying to recapture the magic of the first movie just won't work.

Its why so many were burned out on the second '09 Trek movie. Tried to ape too much from a good movie instead of being its own thing and then what it took it didn't do very well.

Kingsman was fucking great. Once again, Matthew Vaughn took Mark Millar's shit and turned it into gold. This film was a fantastic lampoon and celebration of the 60s spy dramas. A little too silly at times, but the self-aware humor was a hit overall. Samuel L Jackson was also hilarious. Easily beats his phoned-in Marvel performances.

The church scene easily takes the cake as the most memorable scene in the film. The fast-paced over-the-top action mixed with "Freebird" was perfect

That's true but I still think the controversy is a little misplaced. It's not the only book to do this or is it even the worst, but it gets the most flak just because it's famous (or maybe that's the point? that it's a good launchpad for discussion? if so it feels like people are wasting that opportunity to keep taking potshots at an easy target instead). Seems to me like the whole hubbub is confusing cause and effect, and it might be better off examining the underlying attitudes that cause the book to be so popular with women in the first place rather than blaming the book itself for encouraging it when it's just feeding off those preexisting attitudes. Some of it sounds eerily like the old "D&D causes Satanism" moral panic, only this time you've got anger on the left in addition to the usual fundies gettin' mad that women dare enjoy sex.

When it's just some trashy Harlequinn romance novels that get a few thousand sales/book here and there, even if they have as much or more abuse than 50 Shades, it seems like a very small sub-set of women (and, even then, a sub-set of the sub-set of women interested in those books in general.) 50 Shades of Gray's popularity was highly unprecedented, and did thrust the issue into the limelight.

The same way that if only two or three kids are being bullied in school people just pretend it doesn't happen, but if one of them makes a threat or gets hospitalized from the bullying then it becomes an issue.

I will make it very simple for you. These books/movies are for masturbating to, not for basing your life around. Rape and domination fantasies are actually really common among women, which is not the same as saying that women want to be raped or dominated. It's just something that, when it's in a fantasy or a piece of fiction, is sexually exciting to them. Much like how a man with an incest fetish may have no desire to fuck his own sister.

I've always thought this was more of a fantasy for completely handing over control of yourself, with no ability to take it back unless the other person gives it back, an extremely deep level of trust. Bondage is largely based off this, but the rape fantasies come from doing the same without the ropes. However, there's no anglo cultural example of completely and consensually giving yourself to someone, body and soul, with no control, so the term "rape" is used as the closest proxy. Women with a "rape fantasy" almost certainly don't want to be raped, but there's not a good term for it. Non-restrictive bondage?

Perhaps "ragdoll fantasy" is a better term, as the the desired outcome is for the other party to control the submissive's body as they see fit.

The not-superhero movie walked away with Best Picture. All Boyhood got was Best Supporting Actress.

All the conservative tears about American Sniper being "snubbed" makes this even sweeter.

Along with Marvel fanboys crying about GOTG not winning the only award is was nominated for.

Now you say that like it's supposed to prove you don't hate Marvel but it's clear you REALLY hate Marvel, because no one who doesn't have an insane hate boner would EVER compare Man of Steel, that fetid shit log, to the highly enjoyable if by the numbers Guardians of The Galaxy.

I wasn't directly comparing GOTG to MOS. By all means, GOTG is the better film that MOS.

That's interesting its like the Nick News thing they had on Immigrant Children. Most really want to go back to their home countries. They just want to go back to a home where they wont be murdered.

Anyone with a lick of sense knew American Sniper would never win Best Picture.

Seriously, ignoring the film's politics it was a pretty average film.

It did well because there wasn't really anything else to compete with.

>Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

>His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

RIP

hahah oh god I saw Kingsman, and it wasn't until I talked with a few friends about the film I realized it had a complete action seqquence excised from the cut I saw.
And from what I hear it was the best one in the movie.
