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.

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.

>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.

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.

This is the best take on the Noah controversy I've seen so far.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/02/opinion/trevor-noah-learns-twitter-just-cant-take-a-joke.html

>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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hell, the shared universe itself isn't even the most important thing why Marvel is doing as well as it has.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

No just one named Thor, though actually its Kevin.

He's going to be a romantic interest more so than Egon ever was with Jeanine I wager.

Shame I don't care about Thor. Hemsworth may be the most handsome, but I always found him the least charismatic of the big four Chrises.

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.

I don't know what to say. I don't know what I expected.
