Guy Hamilton also died yesterday.

If you don't know who Hamilton was, well, he directed a little movie you may have heard about, Goldfinger.

He also directed pic related, an action film I adore for its pure 80s campiness.

The Jungle Book was fun! After Iron Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, it's great to see Jon Favreau riding high again. Although, I hear Chef is good, but I haven't watched it.

I'm hearing talks of a live action Lion King now, which I could totally see happening.

It just comes off as musical-y after they went to great lengths to make Bear Necessities come off naturally. To the point where when Mowgli and Baloo sing it together they are tripping over each other cacaphonously like two buds singing together would instead of perfectly harmonizing with each other like a musical number

>Comcast hopes to breathe new life into Shrek and crank out as many as four animated movies a year following its acquisition of DreamWorks Animation.

Cute they want to compete with Disney. I mean its not like that is what got Dreamworks in this current state, oh wait.

Also

>Comcast hopes to breathe new life into Shrek.

No, for all that is good in the world. Just no.

Difference between Disney acquisitions and this is that Disney already had a standing with the companies it brought in and setup groups to spearhead their pushes in both cases enhancing what already existed.

All I hear from these guys in this and other articles on this topic is a whole lotta wants but no clear understanding of how to generate that plan for success.

I don't see it working at all as smoothly as they think it will. Regardless that insane notion "We bought it because we could afford it and we've still got plenty of money."

My biggest fear is that they'll destroy what Netflix has worked with Dreamworks to build which is what it sounds like NBC/Universal wants to do. But since its not theirs and they have no want or understanding of streaming and it'll all be destroyed.

Numerous times TV executives in general have been myopic as hell talking about Streaming as if it was just a fad. "They'll come back to us, and we'll be waiting."

People have been cord cutting at increasing numbers for nearly a decade now. Its not going to stop. People don't want to be tethered to a network schedule nor their couch for entertainment.

And from what I've read they still don't get it so I don't think this will go any better.

And in sports

>The company lost about $150 million from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, but expects to “make a lot of money in Rio” with the Summer Olympics in August. Indeed, he believes NBC will to beat the record audience from the 2012 London games “because this is a live Olympics.”

>“America for 17 days basically puts other things aside and falls in love with the Olympics,” Burke says.

Yea its not like a virulent outbreak that could take out a number of the teams and will cause the withdraw of some countries could affect coverage. Nah nothing like that.

I get his point, in the same way I think it's usually better to introduce original characters like Rey, Finn, and Poe who were always belonging to underrepresented groups, than to rely on hand-me-downs for representation by Xwashing preexisting characters, like recasting Luke or Han in later adaptations with black actors.
On the other hand Sulu had like one female love interest ever and it didn't even work out. He's not vigorously heterosexual the way Kirk is (no matter how much rabid Kirk/Spock shippers insist homophobic studio execs put in Uhura as a beard to "cover up" his canon gayness for Spock). So I don't think a whole lot of vision is really being changed there.

Hell, make him bi and you don't even really have to change or explain anything. The fact that you dated a girl at one point doesn't mean you're straight. Still get LGBT representation, and for one of the least well represented groups around (bisexual men), but don't have to do any retcons to make it sensible.

In fact, if you don't have him specifically use the phrase "I'm homosexual" or something, people who have a problem with him having dated a girl in one continuity can headcanon the explanation however they want--bisexuality, midpoints on the Kinsey scale, "If it's you it's okay" (in either direction), or whatever else floats their boat. Point is just that he's romantically involved with a man.

On a similar subject.

Their was talk about the next or one after that James bond being a "Jane Bond". Reason I call this similar is would it be easier just to write a female Super Spy as a lesbian rather than have her seduce countless men. Not talking anything about titillation but just the perception of her character.

James has always been a bit of a sleaze when it comes to seducing women and I don't know if that attitude toward the opposite sex would work coming from a woman to a main stream audience.

Hence my question of making her a lesbian as that's not something that has been brought up in talks yet.

Be interesting. Mainstream Movie Action Female openly seducing women. Be the only one to my knowledge since that trait was scrapped from the Lara Croft reboot.

I actually really like the idea. Its not a vaccum, gender dynamics are still a thing, so I don't really see any mainstream audience flick using a literally inverted gender play.

It's sadly funny how far film and television will let a lesbian or gay character go in something that isn't a comedy before someone dies. Heard this past year was particularly brutal in drama shows with gay and lesbian characters. Person of Intrest Root being one of the most recent I think.

I think Legend of Korra was one of the scant few to get it across the finsh line without killing one of them, which I find oddly humorous.

They're bi. Sorry but I get kinda triggered when people call Korra and Asami lesbians because too many fans of the ship are honest-to-god bisexual haters who insist that the two are 100% lesbian and that Mako was a beard instead of someone they were genuinely attracted to at some point, and if you claim otherwise you're a "lesbophobe", even though Bryke explicitly said they're bisexuals and not lesbians.

Apologies, just being expedient.

I know that she is its just that any other show if she's paried up earlier the finish line would likely have been a solo run or she'd rebounded to Mako, which was a fake out at their last episode (and something his VA kept trolling with).

Demystifying Jason with a shitty origin story would've been awful. The other long-rumored idea swirling around this project - a "found footage" film - would've been equally as shitty. A period piece with no real attempt at an origin story for Jason is probably as good an idea as they'll get without going for a self-aware Jason X-style approach again.

Paramount promoting Beyond as a generic action movie really hurt the film. The mixed reception to Into Darkness probably didn't help Beyond either. Disappointing, since everyone says this is the best modern Star Trek film yet.

Trek 4 is still a go and the film will be a financial success regardless, but I hope Paramount doesn't do anything stupid with the franchise to try and make Marvel money.

2009 Trek has to be watched, arguing otherwise is kinda ridiculous. The film establishes the new setting and the changes to the continuity, plus the passing of the torch between Spocks is pretty great.

Into Darkness is 100% avoidable, nothing of importance happens there other than being a very poor attempt to redo Khan (SPOILERS: Kirk dies instead of Spock, but he gets revived five minutes later so who gives a shit). Hell, I actually think NuTrek works better jumping from the first film to Beyond.

Various reports say Jason Momoa, best known as the guy WB thinks will make Aquaman less of a joke, is now attached to the long-cursed remake of The Crow. (I say “long-cursed” because the pre-production of said remake has lasted for years and had numerous directors, writers, and lead actors attached to it for varying amounts of time.)

A tweet from MovieBob got me to thinkin’, though: Why must the film be remade with a guy in the lead role? Why not give us a hot goth chick kicking ass in the name of personal vengeance? No remake of The Crow will ever recapture the “magic” of the original film—the aesthetic is too ’90s and the death of Brandon Lee only adds to the film’s somber tone—so trying something “new” with the franchise and showing us how a woman handles being “The Crow” might be worth more of a glance than a straight-up remake.

And hey, if nothing else, we’d get a new hot goth chick to fawn over.

That's not as crazy an idea as all that. I have a sequel comic to The Crow in my collection called The Crow: Flesh and Blood, featuring a female Crow called Iris Shaw. It's got a more "American Gothic" feel to it in line with Preacher or True Detective, being set out west in the wilderness.

I've also just now learnt of a BD spinoff series called The French Crow, which had multiple female Crows throughout its run. A spinoff movie set in Paris would definitely have an interesting vibe, could take advantage of the juicy tax incentives they use to pump out all those Liam Neeson movies.

Pete’s Dragon is one of Disney’s best live-action films. It’s a little cliché and predictable, sure, but for films like this, the execution of tropes matters more than the tropes themselves. My only real problem with it: Karl Urban’s character gets no real characterization or motives for what he does, making him a rather flat villain. In any case, I’d recommend seeing it if you’re sick of all the cynicism and “feel-bad” cinema coming out as of late.

The new film came off as more of a re-imagining than a remake, since it cut out the various sidestories (and musical numbers) from the original and kept only the barebones story intact. That approach sidelined the three major adult characters in terms of characterization, but it also narrowed the film’s focus into a singular narrative throughline—Pete’s journey back into society—and heightened the emotional impact of Pete’s relationship with Elliot.

The film also accomplished something special: Rather than hitting on nostalgic “greatest hit” homage shots and relying on “needledrops” (songs not written for a film but intended to invoke memories of a specific time), Pete’s Dragon used intentional anachronism to invoke nostalgia for a certain period of life—as Birth.Movies.Death’s Devin Faraci puts it, “a time when you were open to awe, when your imagination was boundless and when the world was maybe just a little more frightening than you were willing to admit”. When Pete gets to the town outside of the forest, it feels like a place out of step with modern America; no cellphones, computers, or other “screens” show up in the film. (A record player even shows up at one point!) But that intentional anachronism both avoids dating the film and helps with the “nostalgia for one’s youth” feeling.

Pete’s Dragon never once felt like some cheap attempt to cash in on the kind of nostalgia that drove, say, Jurassic World or Ghostbusters. It didn’t lean anywhere near any form of cynicism, but it avoided going overboard with the optimism and sincerity of its emotion. Everything about it just felt…right. And I loved that the film made me feel so damned happy when I walked out of the theater.

I watched 2001 for the first time this weekend. Fuck me, that movie is fucking TERRIBLE!
I can understand why it was so significant back then what with the space race and the psychedelic movement, but I can honestly say that anyone praising this movie to this day is full of fucking shit.

Not that poster, but I'll chime in since I pretty much agree. The cinematography is obviously amazing, and every frame's a painting just like people always say about Kubrick. Music's great too. But actually *watching* the movie is unbearably dull. Nothing happens for pretty much the entire movie.

As art, it's great, but as entertainment it's terrible.

Thing is, I happen to agree with you. (I tried to watch it on two separate occasions, but I never made it more than a half-hour in.) I just wanted to see the other poster at least justify their opinion, though I imagine they’ll do a quick “THIS”-type post. Not that I’d begrudge them such a post; if someone can articulate an opinion I hold and do it better than I could, I’d go “THIS” at it, too.

Just this year Disney, Dreamworks, and Sony got that class-action antitrust lawsuit (the one about the "gentlemen's agreement" to fix wages and not to hire each other's employees) thrown out purely based on statue of limitations.

In 2010, the DOJ discovered evidence of conspiratorially meetings going to at least 2007. The judge decided the four-year statue of limitations thus ran out in 2011, and the case could only go through if there was evidence that it had continued even more recently.

Original complainer here. The things that happen could be told in half an hour, instead of making people sit through a 2 hour snore fest. Because the way this movie tries to build tension is through establishing shots, which is fine in principle, but after the second or third time we see an object move slowly through space for ten minutes they become utterly redundant and a waste of time. Like, I get it, dude. Things take time in space. And don't even get me started on the fucking ending. It's like the most pubescent pothead fucking "deep" garbage imaginable. "Like, there's this dude. In a totally white room. And he sees himself age. And then he becomes a fetus again. Circle of life, duuuude!" The entire movie is just Kubrick masturbating. It's the In A Gadda Da Vida of movies. Notable for the spectacle, but a fucking chore to sit through.

Not even really why it was important, but you don't even need to go as far as to have lived in that time to really get its cultural impact. That takes way too much effort nowadays.

Just doing some simple reading up on how it was percieved at the time is enough. If you don't do even that, don't even go near Dr. Strangelove cus that one's gonna sail right over you, man.

Hmmm, being "entertained" is a nebulous thing, there are people who find fun in waiting hours freezing in a rural road just to watch a Rally car speeding by for a couple of seconds. I do get entertained by watching 2001, it is indeed a movie I watch from time to time and find myself satisfied. Shit, I think I have rewatched 2001 more than say, Die Hard or Jaws. The film just thoroughly works for me, it's super-comfy, I find meaning in it, and it's often just beatiful to look at.

I have no problem if somebody doesn't agree with that and finds the movie too slow and weird, but this:

It's not the Tick as we know it, but I think that's fine. Tick's a parody, and supers have changed since he was last in the game. So instead of just more Tick, they've decided to "ground" the series to take on the MCU style dramas of today like Daredevil.

A reboot generally tries to restart the entire canon of a franchise—think Ghostbusters (2016), RoboCop, or both The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Homecoming. (The first two are what you can call “rebakes”—both a reboot and a remake.) Fury Road adds to the Mad Max canon, so while it brought back the franchise, it didn’t really reboot things.

If Marvel made a new Blade film that picked up where Blade: Trinity left off, it would be a sequel. If Marvel made a new Blade film that restarted Blade’s film canon—a film that acted as if the original Blade films didn’t exist at all—that would be a reboot.

It's been said before by smarter people than I that the only worthwhile remakes are those of films that had strong concepts let down by lacklustre execution. Ben Hur and True Grit are two, but Ocean's Eleven, Cape Feare and D.O.A. are also good examples.

So going by that criteria, what movie would make a good candidate for a remake these days? It's kind of hard to pinpoint one without an encyclopaedic knowledge of old, shitty movies. For my money, it's been a good long while since the last attempted adaptations of '30s pulp, like The Shadow, Dick Tracey, The Rocketeer etc.

Mr. StonezWb42fBPMM

>what movie would make a good candidate for a remake these days?

Here’s the problem with this line of thinking: It implies that we need a remake of anything. Such an implication suggests we need remakes so “modern audiences” can appreciate the story told by the original. But why can’t we settle for what we have? The original Magnificent Seven (itself a remake of The Seven Samurai) withstands the test of time thanks to a strong script and solid acting from an all-star cast. The only reason for a studio to remake The Magnificent Seven is because they think banking on a form of nostalgia and name recognition will rake in the dosh. (“Hey, remember that old western about the seven guys who stood up to an army of bad guys? Now it’s being done with modern actors and modern technology! Surely it will be as good as the original, if not better!”) But even if the remake is good—which is no guarantee—there was simply no reason to do it other than some studio bigwig’s implicit hatred for older films and how they look/feel.

And yet evidence shows just how hard it truly is. Lots of remakes/reboots work under the “tangible details” theory: Rather than taking a deep understanding of what did and didn’t work about a film into the new version, creators of a remake/reboot often reach for the tangible details of the original movie and use them to trigger nostalgia (often as a disguise for piss-poor storytelling).

Elba would be great. But that's got bizarre resistance about "no black scots" or something in the studio. Then we've got that faction that wants a woman Bond which leads to its own complaints and then rides us back around to "rest of the list is too unsure, lets just get Craig back for a bit longer."

Bring back Craig and we'll likely get two more rounds of Dead Letter tapes from Dame Dench about more people she screwed over and are prowling around for vengeance.

Elba has a good presence and that cool lethal demeanor that I recall most on Sir Connery.

He also seems to be a popular choice in Britain.

And those all follow the rule of "There is something that can be done better or added to another iteration of that film."

More modern ones seem to falter on that as they seem to remove certain plot points and not really add anything new that really fills those spots.

Lets say post 2000s to really put a bead on it then. Ones coming out based more on Studios "Hey this was popular back in the day, lets remake it." Rather than the director and/or writer saying "I"d like to work on this as I think it has promise as a remake."

Yeah, most modern remakes (going with the “2000s onward” definition of that phrase) concentrate more on the iconography and what went right rather than focusing on what went wrong the first time, how to fix it, and how to best balance both the old and new takes (especially given modern aesthetics and FX abilities).

I’ve said it before, but Manos would be a film that I’d love to see an actual remake of. And that is not a joke—within that wretched slab of film lies a story idea that could be crafted into something so much better than Hal P. Warren could’ve ever dreamed. Practical effects and one- or two-set location shooting to keep costs down, a reworked script that would (amongst other “fixes”) give us more conflict between the married couple at the heart of the story so we'll care about their eventual fates, and a complete dedication to treating it like an actual horror film instead of a satirical pot-shot at the original…seriously, a Manos remake could actually work under the right conditions.

Could Manos work as say a "Found Footage" Film. I mean the setup is good for Some Dude in the modern era carrying around a camera on his family vacation and getting trapped in that bizarre place. Or better to be a tight cinematic piece.

Maybe have it in a straight up abandoned Theme Park which Manos has made his "Kingdom", plenty of those around.

I envision it more as a tight cinematic thriller on a low (for Hollywood) budget, but a found footage-style film could also work.

When is the last film that hybridized that the film travels cinematic but the story is carried along with found footage.

I thinking like how it works in some games. The plot is revealed mainly through recorded media that the character finds while experiencing the world.

Games do that to avoid disrupting gameplay with intrusive cutscenes - you can ignore the audiologs and plough through shooting bad guys, or you can hang back and listen to the additional media so you get narrative context as to why you're shooting bad guys.

Films don't have "gameplay" for the recorded media to interrupt - films are recorded media, 100% through-and-through. If you're asking about the last movie to reveal some important plot point in a flashback delivered in-movie via a recording, I'm pretty sure there's a half-dozen films in the multiplex right now that do exactly that, but that's hardly "hybrid storytelling," it's a well-worn trope that goes back to Citizen Kane.

G.I. Samurai is an amazing piece of cinema and y'all should watch it.

Random quest, but is the Independence Day sequel as dogshit as it first looks?

I'm hardly claiming the original as some sort of high quality feat of creative writing, but this just seems like an entirely pointless sequel released after all those years where they try to build shallow hype by raising power levels everywhere and is actually WORSE writing-wise than the original, if that can be believed.

It's watchable, but not as fun as the original. The ending opens potential for crazier stuff, though.

I must add, I have no idea how the RLM guys found it better. I usually agree with their reviews, but not in this case.

RLM are a bunch of guys with opinions. They are no prophets, speaking the absolute truth.

They also come from a film school background so they have tastes that differ from those without that background.

All the film background and difference in tastes can't account for giving Independence Day: Resurgence a positive review. That's going into Armond White territory right there.

OTOH it wasn't exactly an unanymous opinion, Mike liked it but Jay found it dumb (although he was MUCH less vocal about his dislike than he was in the ID4 review)

Mine tends to have a strange fondness for dumb shlock so it's not really that surprising. That's not an insult either, is fine to like that stuff and doesn't invalidate his other views.

I did find it surprising because Mike hated the first ID4 precisely because it was dumb shlock, and Resurgence is even dumber and shlockier and somehow he loved it. I am not saying he sucks for it or anything like that, but it was supremely odd to hear him giving praise to the movie.

I just watched The OA.
I kind of really enjoy that its climax is really emotional and powerful with context, and extremely silly without.
