I hope Chris Pratt isn't this year's Jake Gyllenhal. He seems like a genuinely nice and fun guy, has been amazing in the roles I've seen him thus far (Parks & Rec, Guardians of the Galaxy; two very different settings aside from playing a goofy guy), and I'd like to see him have a long acting career. I doubt he'll attain the notoriety or presence of Tom Hanks or Harrison Ford, but I think he could be solid like Christian Bale or Hugh Jackman.
>>42144 Fresh off the boat is chill paced, the poignant moments are spiced on top, which is actually why Eddie hates it so bad, he wanted it to be like a gritty FX series where it was shown how his dad abused him and stuff.
If you didn't like it after the first three I'd say give it a pass, it's more like Malcolm in the Middle than Everybody hates Chris.
>>42145 Aww, so it doesn't really change that much? That's too bad. I really wanted to like it since I'm Asian American myself, but I guess I'm just glad that there's shows like these that deal with experiences kinda like mine and have mainstream appeal, even it's just not holding my attention in particular.
>The Fast and Furious franchise continues to be the greatest action movie franchise on the planet because it just gets action movies on a level that no one else seems to get these days. James Bond movies are great in theory, but in execution are just three or four mild action set pieces spaced an hour apart. Furious 7 is at least eight action set pieces, interspersed by periods of no longer than five minutes of exposition or character development before people are driving cars really fast, shooting at each other or blowing stuff up. It's invigorating and exciting -- pretty much everything an action movie is supposed to be.
TBS picked up Samantha Bee and Jason Jones. HBO got John Oliver. Larry Wilmore is trying. Jessica Jones cited being 25 as not being ready for the show yet. We'd all better start praying for Asif Mandvi or Al Madrigal because FUCKING GOD IN HEAVEN DON'T LET JORDAN KLEPPER GET THE DAILY SHOW OH GOD IN HEAVEN PLEASE NO
>>42183 >TBS picked up Samantha Bee and Jason Jones. Aww. While neither of them can match up to Jon Stewart individually I'd say that the two together would've done the best job. Al is meh but gunning hard for Asif.
And because it's made of cliches it moves at hyper accelerated speed which really works to it's advantage because the plot is spiced into the character interaction that even talking head scenes don't have anything resembling fat.
So that South African guy they recently hired? Turns out those correspondent bits he was doing were a try out for the hosting gig!
I'm... cautiously optimistic. He's been pretty solid, and brings an outsider/global perspective that may allow it to hew closer to Last Week Tonight, which is somewhat less US focused than the current "Oh God Fox News just DIE" approach TDS has settled into.
>>42210 Agreed in full. I am highly surprised, just because he is the newest guy, but I haven't disliked what I've seen. I wonder if the few other, more senior correspondents who haven't taken themselves out of the running are a bit miffed about this.
>>42218 Simultaneously I'm seeing Noah-defenders claiming he should be given a pass because as a POC he has less privilege than Jews or women (because such things are measurable and absolute, yeah), and if you're white and offended by such jokes, well guess what, you're a racist! God bless oppression olympics.
Yeah, reading his tweets....these are pretty tame. I've heard Jon Stewart say things on that level on the Daily Show itself.
Like the only one that actually seems to be "punching down" toward the group he's being accused of mocking is the one implying that Israel is belligerent, and that's not racist it's just political. Disapproving of another nation's foreign policy and/or mocking it for those policies is not an attack on that nation's people.
I mean, while those tweets of Noah's are a little tasteless, they're not really all that offensive either. I'm more concerned by the fact that they're just not particularly funny or clever than the offensiveness, considering his job is to be a comedian and the challenge is to see if he can consistently deliver on that end.
>>42247 Regardless of my personal thoughts on the matter, I wish people would fucking learn to stop conflating anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism. Doesn't help that pundits from all over the spectrum absolutely thrive on perpetuating this misconception.
>Good stand-up comedy cannot be safe; it must shock or surprise an audience. Some comics can do it magnificently with insights about socks, but the best do it with bracing commentary about the stuff that really matters to us. Sex, race, politics and religion have been the source of some of the best comedy I’ve seen, but the process of figuring out how to talk about difficult issues is going to involve errors that are potentially painful for people in the audience.
>It is also true that good comedy can’t just echo tropes from the past that have a semblance of danger. Bad impressions of gays and Asians, complaints about unattractive women, brutal insults to trans people and mockery of African-American names have become the tired rubric of too many stand-ups’ acts. These jokes aren’t just bad and hurtful; they reinforce a mostly white, straight, male power dynamic within the comedy world.
>Social media critics challenged these tired premises, and comics unused to having their perspectives questioned have replied that social awareness will destroy comedy. But it won’t. American audiences used to laugh at blackface, Mickey Rooney as Mr. I. Y. Yunioshi and any number of other caricatures. We grew out of those jokes.
>At the same time, we can’t blame comedians for taking time to learn. Any critic of comedy who believes that he has always, universally, been on the right side of justice is engaging in a hypocrisy that is itself a joke.
>The great thing about comedy is that it generally doesn’t take itself too seriously. It can toy, it can explore; today that happens, a lot of the time, in 140-character bursts. Mr. Noah has gotten a clear message about cheap jokes at the expense of marginalized groups, but so far it doesn’t seem as if that response will cost him the job. And it shouldn’t. Because, in the process of a comedian’s learning how to say the right thing, he needs the chance to say the wrong thing.
Also holds true, if anyone remembers #CancelColbert. Although in that case was pretty blatantly clear what he was getting at in context and the people who are still offended by that represent everything wrong with the Tumblr social justice community, especially the assholes who started harassing actual Native American activists for telling them to calm down.
>>42255 Yeah most of the really obnoxious and vocal anti-Colbert guys don't even use Tumblr. Most of it was on sites like Twitter or Gawker Media, not Tumblr. Tumblr was generally sympathetic to him, and the people who weren't were mostly just dumb teenagers with no real social media influence.
Asylum is undeniably in a league of its own. I haven't seen Freak Show yet, but I'd actually give Murder house a higher rating by a hair over Coven. Murder house, while lackluster and depressing, was at least coherent, and since I went in with no expectations other than this being a scary show made by the Glee guys, I was impressed. Coven I had such high expectations but the plot was such a hot mess. It did have better characters than season 1 tho.
>>42255 >Makes it seem like a tsundere-like infatuation. That's pretty much what it is. 4chan and tumblr are almost identical in terms of how they operate, so they've got this weird playground crush mentality where 4chan pulls tumblr's hair and tumblr kicks 4chan's shins and they both run away crying in their separate homes, while imagining what one another's lips taste like.
>>42271 >since I went in with no expectations other than this being a scary show made by the Glee guys Man that show really went to shit ever since they introduced Kurt's boyfriend and the show shifted gears for the worst.
Having seen some of the hate-spewing garbage that is Ryan Murphy's other works like Glee and The New Normal, and just regular garbage like Eat Pray Love and Nip/Tuck, I'm wondering what it is about the American Horror Stories series that manages to stay good in spite of his influence.
Is it because he's been basically kicked upstairs? The network is putting its foot down on quality control? Or what?
The pure sincerity the Fast & Furious films have for regarding its cast as family is why the Paul Walker tribute at Furious 7 hits so hard.
Furious 7, as a whole, is the perfect example of how to do a dumb and fun action movie right. It doesn't take itself seriously, but has enough heart to make you love the cast and watch them engage in every spectacular stunt onscreen.
What is the technology. Clearly some part Infrared since I can see the glow that pops up in the center eye. I wonder if she's legit meant "on his own". In my mind that means most its functions not needing direct control.
I remember the paroxysm of fanart that exploded within hours of the first teaser hitting, and I'm kind of surprised that we haven't seen quite the same volume this long after the new trailer, despite giving us so much extra meat to chew on. So while we wait for the fanartists of the internet to get on the level, have some Faith Erin Hicks fangirling over Rey.
Sorta /jam/, sorta not, but I just saw where Discotek Media is gonna release Samurai Pizza Cats in its entirety on a single Blu-ray Disc. All the episodes will be in SD (obviously), but they'll all be on the same disc.
Other than the idea of "BLU-RAY IS FOR HD ONLY!", I can't fathom why more companies don't do this.
Seriously, Disney alone could probably make a killing by releasing old shows on BD. Any show pre-HD would conceivably fit on one disc, maybe two at the most. Imagine being able to have the entire goddamn Disney Afternoon on BD for a fraction of the price/storage space you’d have to set aside for DVD.
If Nick did this for Avatar: The Last Airbender…holy shit, you know they’d get fans to double-dip.
>>42508 I thought about this. And I came to two conclusions.
1) Disney is not interested in releasing products that will make them money. They want to release products that will make them A SHITLOAD OF MONEY. Unless Disney Afternoon Blu-Rays could make them 60,000,000 dollars, they ain't bothered. 2) Disney is interested in public image and public reputation almost as much as money. They want to be known as "the company that makes wholesome family friendly movies". They will release their movies on Blu-Ray multiple times, because they want the public to know about their feature films. They can make shows, but Disney will never market their shows nearly as much as movies.
>>42525 Nah, don't worry, the desire for tact is fine, especially in the face of such a douche like Sandler.
I think one of the things that bothers me most about him is he is a waste, both what others invest in him and what he invests in himself. He was so much fun in Hotel Transylvania it's a shame he didn't learn from it.
>>42544 I'd say all of it...it is supposed to be "the Cosby family for Muslims" right down to low production values and bad sweaters, they go so far that the name of the family is the "Qu’osby" family.
It's Indiegogo funded and only people who actually funded it are even really aware of it so it's definately not racists trying to deflate it's scores, it's a 5/10 top to bottom, but they tried really hard, it just didn't work out.
>Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
After Stranger Tides, I'm not so sure about this one.
>>42613 Considering the interview he had later with a transgender comedian, it seems incredibly obvious that first part was done by his worst writer. Why even have somebody else write your scripts when they're clearly not as good as you are without one?
>Sony's already rumored to be crossing over the Men in Black and the 21 Jump Street franchises, as well they have two Ghostbusters films in the works: one with the all-female cast and one with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt. For all we know, Men in Black, 21 Jump Street and Ghostbusters could all become the same franchise one day.
This is the big problem with Hollywood studios post-Marvel: they think the "shared universe" idea is what'll get them a shitload of dosh, but they're just trying to make a "shared universe" out of *anything* without taking the time and care to put it together *right* (like Marvel did by putting Feige in charge of the MCU). It's why DC's Cinematic Galaxy already looks DOA, the Transformers "universe" sounds like a fucking awful idea, and this Ghostbusters/MIB/21 Jump Street idea makes me want to burn Hollywood to the ground.
You can plant a bunch of trees, but that doesn't mean you made a forest.
>>42639 Hell, the shared universe itself isn't even the most important thing why Marvel is doing as well as it has. That has more to do with them being very good at identifying and selecting talent over securing big names, and their admittedly sometimes draconian editing at least maintaining a certain level of minimum quality to their films, as well as Feige.
>>42638 The best excuse for a Transformers cinematic universe would be a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover, but if they were going to do that, they would probably be calling it the Hasbro cinematic universe. >>42639 Don't forget Universal's monster-verse, but that one doesn't sound half-bad if only because monster crossover movies have been around for decades.
>>42640 The "shared universe" makes it easier for them to get people into theaters for otherwise-unknown properties. Most people would never give a second thought to a flick called "Ant Man", but since they know it's part of the Cineverse and a Marvel movie (which most consider to be of high quality) there will be a larger turnout.
It allows them to also build up a larger back story for characters and use that story in later films. In Iron Man 3, a lot of Tony's actions are the result of his experience in The Avengers. They showed some brief clips of what he did, enough to remind the audience, but didn't have to go into larger detail because the majority of the audience had seen the other film already (and the specifics of the event were not terribly important.)
All that said, I do agree that simply having the shared universe is not what led to Marvel's success, it just enhanced it.
Eventually, this need to create a “supernarrative” that combines different films/franchises as Marvel has done with the MCU will bite Hollywood on the ass. Marvel’s done well to keep it going so far, but even they can't keep it going forever—especially if(/when) they suffer their first big theatrical bomb.
>>42668 Yea it did sadly. They've got a new Showrunner for Season 3 (Clifton Campbell), lets see if that turns things around hopefully. Also I want to see this Gotham and Backstrom (if it survives) on the same night
Y’know, I was thinking back to that whole “all of Samurai Pizza Cats on a single Blu-ray disc” thing, and it got me to thinkin’ about what shows could benefit from such a release. Then I was looking up news on TVShowsOnDVD.com, and it hit me: MST3K could really benefit from a “shitload of episodes on one disc” release.
If we go by how many episodes of Samurai Pizza Cats are going on a single disc (52) and average run times (24 minutes per episode), MST3K could fit around 12 to 14 episodes on a single Blu-ray. Imagine having the 13 “best”/most famous episodes of the show on a single disc (or 26 on two discs) for a fraction of the cost/storage space of those big DVD sets. Hell, it could even be feasible to do an actual season set for MST3K with this method (assuming it could get the rights for every episode in a given season).
Man, I wish Blu-ray was as widespread as DVD so companies would actually think about doing this.
You know, there have been comprehensive studies made about film lengths, and we are about the same average running times as in the 60s. The average drastically went down during the 70s and reached a valley in the mid 80s, mostly due the limitations of the tape-based home video, and then in the 90s rose up again thanks to the DVD and later the Blu Ray formats.
Don't forget that a lot of oldschool classics are longass movies. Gone with the Wind? Same running time as Age of Ultron.
Person of Interest has gone off the Network beaten path from "procedural" to a Sci-Fi AI Battle Serial. Apparently its strayed so far as to be scary to the Network and they may cancel it before it gets an actual ending. Crime Shows out the ass they can handle but Sci-fi scares them. Supergirl is destined for CW given that mentality.
>>42793 Eh it would be one of three, just sit it on the right night where they have a gap and it would be fine. Thursday and Tuesday I'd say.
I know it can't survive on CBS, as said its just too much an outlier from what they've spent the last few decades shaping the Network Dramas around. But I think its different enough from the other shows but close enough to Superman to have it be a solid choice.
>>42814 The TV shows are generally a more cerebral affair, as they require larger plots and hooks to keep viewers interested in coming back for the next episode while having less money to put into effects. The movies, on the other hand, are full of glitz, giant fight scenes, and while they may touch on many sub plots the main thread is a very straight and basic one.
>>42816 Gotham is less Batman and more Dexter-meets-Sopranos right now. They've introduced no one with powers, just a bunch of really crazy people. That's probably why Fox hasn't cancelled it; I expected them to since the normal Batman universe has a lot of sci-fi elements.
I just saw the JEM movie trailer. It reminds me why I don't trust Hollywood to produce good film adaptations. Marvel Studios, love them or hate them, are pretty much the only group that seems to be able to remain faithful to fun source material.
>>42908 I've seen a lot of people complaining about the film being racist, ableist, and fat-shaming. Is there any merit to that or are people just looking into things way too hard because nothing is going to be perfect and I'm just glad it tackles women characters as well as it does without feeling hamfisted.
>>42909 Probably just morons being oversensitive as usual, like all the assholes who are convinced Whedon is a Red Pill-browsing freakazoid who hates women, Jews, or black people because of one line in Age of Ultron that was deliberately taken out of context.
>>42909 There is an obese villain, and there is disable guy who is... wouldn't even call him villain, he just works there. Immorten Joe is old, so I guess the movie is also ageist because he is the bad guy? It's nonsense, people bitching on the internet for the sake of it.
>>42909 Regarding the racist thing, I think it's because the cast is mostly white people, but then again this is the kind of movie where that doesn't really make a difference, and even if the film had a more diverse cast I'm betting these same people would be complain any because they'd mostly be relegated to background characters and cannon fodder.
>>42909 I've seen some posts like that too but more in the sense of "Oh, its a feminist movie you say? Well its actually SUPER RACIST. Wouldn't that make you A HYPOCRITE~~~ :^^^^^^)?" than any actual qualm with the film.
>>42909 The ableist thing is because all the deformity, disability, and illness are supposedly shown in a negative and undesirable light or portrayed as a quality of the villains while Max is relatively intact and Furiosa is the exception that proves the rule (see: the greater longstanding controversy about treating blindness, deafness, or missing limbs as something that people want to get fixed being considered ableism by some members of the community; the cochlear implant debate is just one instance). There probably are some points to be made about how society treats disabled people but here it sounds pretty spurious and most of the people complaining are the usual armchair suspects just bandwagoning a cause they don't fully understand for e-peen rather than genuine advocacy. No idea about fatshaming though. It's probably also because of the whole villain thing.
>>42913 And yeah, the complaints about "racism" (which is frequently made completely unironically, though some of the slightly less insane ones say the film is still worth gritting through anyway for the feminism) basically boils down to this. People complaining about the lack of diversity and Zoe Kravitz playing a sex slave.
Most of the racism stuff I saw had to do with Eve Ensler's involvement because she she wrote The Vagina Monologues which is apparently really racist, although if it was up to me I'd say the pedophilia and rape apologism deserves the backlash better.
>“I think you have to see the movie to understand,” she told us. “You can’t put it all in the same movie, and I feel like it really does set it up in a cool way. I think a lot of the things that people think are missing are in there. You just have to see it to understand. You can’t put the whole movie in the trailer.”
>>42932 An R-rated film losing to a PG/PG-13 film isn't that surprising. The only question that needs answering is will the film make back its budget. Earned about $44 million at its first domestic box office weekend. International box office seem to be doing well too. Strong word of the mouth should benefit the film.
It's gotta make another, what, 200 mil back to start being profitable? I could see the film hitting that mark in worldwide box office. Could take a couple of weeks, maybe three, but it could definitely happen.
In other words: “We wanted to give Jem an ENTHRALLING BACKSTORY instead of just dumping you into a world of female glam rock stars and holograms and shit.” The problem here? Fury Road just proved you can dump an audience into a world that already exists, give them a bare minimum of worldbuilding, and tell a story within that world. Origin stories? Shit, Star Wars didn't need an origin story. You could cut out all the prequels and sequels and whatever surrounding A New Hope and the film would still stand alone as a masterpiece of cinematic storytelling. All this “we couldn’t put it in one film” shit is just an excuse for “we had no idea how to adapt this shit on a budget so we just slapped the characters in some shitty Hannah Montana ripoff script”.
Oh, and that “you can’t put the whole movie in the trailer” bit? They…kinda fucking did. Like, there’s literally nothing left to watch the film for if you’ve seen the trailer because the trailer gives away how it’s a shit mix of Glitter, Hannah Montana, and Hollywood’s penchant for nostalgia mining. It’s the most predictable, pathetic, worthless, no-effort bullshit attempt at a cash-grab that I’ve seen from Hollywood in a while, and the trailer doesn’t save any real twists or turns in the story unless the last five minutes of the film are basically “hey here’s what we should’ve been doing during the rest of the fucking movie” and we get the Misfits and actual holograms and shit.
As I’ve said: I'm not even really a big fan of the show, and this whole rotten pile of shit feels insulting to my intelligence. If Christy Marx had been dead when this trailer dropped, she would’ve rolled over in her grave. Everyone involved with this film should apologize for it—publicly and loudly—after it rightfully bombs harder than an American drone in Afghanistan.
>The writers they hired to help bring these additional Transformers projects to life are Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman; Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway; Pacific Rim 2‘s Zak Penn, and Amazing Spider-Man 2 scribe Jeff Pinkner.
>>43003 Actually, a lot of what I've heard since then has sort of exonerated Shyamalan as the real problem with that production. I mean don't get me wrong, I still don't think he's a good director. But I genuinely believe him when he says a lot of the problems with that movie came from higher up than Shyamalan.
Don’t completely absolve Shyamalan from the problems with that film. I’ve read a lot of the same stuff you likely have, and I’m willing to cut M. Night some slack for things out of his control—but he still directed the film, and he must bear partial responsibility for its awfulness, even if he refuses to do so himself.
He can think his film is a ★★★★★ affair, but when the vast majority of people who’ve seen it think it’s a MINUS FIVE STARS shitpile, his “I made it for kids”-type defenses don’t do him any favors. Pixar movies are made with younger audiences in mind and even the worst Pixar film didn’t suck as badly as The Last Airbender.
>"It's really weird because on the show the average age was, like, nine-years-old," the director said. "My child was nine-years-old. So you could make it one of two ways. You could make it for that same audience, which is what I did -- for nine and 10-year-olds -- or you could do the Transformers version and have Megan Fox.
As of May 21st, it’s made 128 mil worldwide. If the numbers hold up, it’ll likely be near the 200 mil mark after the weekend. Another couple of weeks in the international markets (especially ones that haven’t gotten the film yet) and I think it will have earned its budget back.
Also! I checked Box Office Mojo for the money stats and found out a neat fact: Fury Road holds the current top spot on the list of "widest-opened R-rated films" (it opened in 3,702 theaters, just edging out Fifty Shades of Grey’s 3,646). But it’s only number two on the “widest-released R-rated films” list, as American Sniper saw release in a total of 3,885 theaters.
One thing I absolutely loved about Fury Road was Joe's War Boys. Those kids fought with absolute abandon, with such energy and glee, and yet if you think about it, they were as much of a victim's of Joes' schemes as anyone else. Unlike Humungus' rag-tag marauders, you could plainly see the War Boys were hammered since childhood into being a fanatical and absolutely lethal fighting force. Best bunch of villain henchmen in decades.
Just got back from the newest Mad Max. Wasn't blown away but it was a very solid film with interesting characters that didn't need to rely too heavily on exposition, and Furiosa was a badass who didn't fall into the trap of being overpowered. Also thank god for no fucking shakycam.
And because Fury Road got high praise from the right places Hollywood will be aping those for the next few years. And yet somehow it's still just the two companies making Superhero films that are the plague on cinema.
>>43031 How it handled Nux was brilliant: at first you think he's just another disposable mook, and by the end you just want to cuddle him and tell him everything's going to be all right. Absolutely agreed, best mooks ever.
>>43038 I'd say Fury Road was as much of a Nux film than it was about Furiosa. Nux actually gets a whole character arc and development, unlike Furiosa who already was a changed person before the film's events, or Max who is in his usual "loner with a heart of gold" persona. Shit, even Max seemed to like the lil' dude by the end, he gave him some boots after all, and in Max's language that probably means "you are pretty alright, dawg".
>>43038 The fact that he was played by Nicholas Hoult from the X-Men films who is pretty popular with fangirls already gave me an indication that he was going to be more important than just a mauveshirt. But yeah, he ended up being such a bro and a sweetheart. I was seriously bummed when he died, even though it was inevitable. And I think his character does a great job of showing just how terrible Joe's regime is to all genders without insulting (most of) the audience's intelligence.
I hope Fury Road continues the trend for male and female action costars who aren't related but don't engage in pointless romantic subplots with each other. Pacifim Rim already kinda got the ball rolling, then The Winter Soldier had fun gloriously trolling anyone who did expect it, and this film basically takes it for granted.
…sweet baby Jesus, I want Fury Road turned into a drug so I can mainline it into my bloodstream. I don't think I've enjoyed a movie that much in years—and it may very well be the best action movie I’ve ever fucking seen.
http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/05/mad-max-fury-road-george-miller-interview >Miller and Lathouris also wound up with extra stories, one of which was written as a novella and was intended to be made as an anime, and another that would be a new film for Tom Hardy’s Max
Wonder which studio they would've hired. Probably Madhouse if the Highlander film is any indication. Also mad props to Margaret Sixel for doing such a good job with the editing for this film.
>>43077 >>43078 And considering the failure of Tron Legacy and Tron Uprising, it was surprising Tron 3 came this close to being in production at all. Tron just isn't meant to be a tentpole movie franchise. First movie is only remembered fondly for its technical achievements.
And I liked Legacy (SHUT UP), but it wasn’t a great movie and just couldn’t replicate the same “oomph” factor as the original (in regards to special effects). That said: I'd rather have had a third Tron than the shitty Rescue Rangers live-action/CGI thing that Disney's planning.
>>43087 Yea were done in the growing pains period of that channel, dang shame we've lost them.
Though a thought on their live action flops. The trailers have communicated the plot and storyline very poorly which in turn lowers my interest in the film. Who ever is in charge of making those cuts is terrible.
>>43106 He brought along most of the Colbert Report creative team with him to the Late Show.
>According to Colbert, the creative team—which he largely brought over from The Colbert Report—moved over at the end of March, and almost immediately started writing. http://time.com/3908749/stephen-colbert-late-show-podcast/
>>43110 Yea part of what got Leno and Letterman their spot was looking a tad goofy. Letterman has known by the gap toothed smile and his curly hair. Leno by his giant chin and high voice. Though Colbert is also a fair shade older than when those guys took the post. Just about the same age as most the CBS viewing audience. Maybe that was figured in.
http://money.cnn.com/2015/06/04/media/colbert-band-leader-jon-batiste/ Also the new Band Leader.
>>43112 As said I hope it works I'd hate for him to get a beating like Conan did while still getting a handle on the spot. I know he's got the talent if they give him time to build a rapport with the audience.
Possibly. Statement from series creator Bryan Fuller:
>NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers. Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. Hannibal is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.
>>43207 I can only imagine the immense fangirl rage this must be generating. While the guy who plays Graham is kinda cute I never understood their weird clit-on for Mads Mikkelsen. He's a good actor but he literally looks like a corpse.
New Ghostbuster Reboot Pack. I keep thinking something looks off other than the design changes. I think it could be the original was dangerous because we are told is an "Unlicensed Nuclear Accelerator" and they treat it as dangerous "Don't cross the streams, could destroy the universe"
This kinda looks like it could just kill ya. Does look very XGB though.
Light ruins it along with the squared body of the car, it just looks like a fan build. Maybe that's the problem with all of this. Everything done is going to be judged by how it stacks up to the original. And really that Ecto-1 is no contest. Do like the Hood Ornament though.
You know, this may be silly but I always loved that the old Ecto-1 was a Cadillac that could be used either as a hearse or as an ambulace. It was kinda poetic, like it was staying in the line between life and death.
The fact that the new Ecto 1 outright is a funeral coach (that ornamet in the back is unmistakable) is a bit of a bummer. And again, I know it is a silly thing to complain about.
>>43291 Though its understandable as I think its a mistake on productions part in not knowing that a "Lifeliner" came in the Hearse version and the Ambulance version with the expanded back area. That expanded rounded back area would have greatly helped the cars design.
It's a wait and see I want it to work but knowing what passes for comedy currently in Hollywood I fear its going to run into a lot of toilet humor. And again I hope the sony email pitch isn't the final script.
Guys, against my better judgment I went to watch Terminator Genisys, and the moment the movie faded into the credits I ran away because I couldn't bear to be in the theater anymore. Because, holy shit.
Thing is, my asshole friend tells me that there was a mid-credits stinger, but he won't tell me what was on it, because according to him I should have waited. Could any of you fine sirs ellaborate on what did I miss? It would be greatly appreciated.
Of course, I highly doubt that after the weak reception the movie had, anything in that stinger will materialize.
