I want this to be my first Woody in the cinema.

 

Have you seen Blue Jasmine yet?  I think you would absolutely love it.  Very soapy.

I love the first one, but here the aesthetic is a bit lost. No longer night, rain, rusty metal, neon city lights. The Jaegers look a bit too similar to each other... and they almost move like Evangelions. I liked that they were kind of slow in the first one.

 

I wonder if they'll do weirder kaiju or if they'll be like the first movie's...

 

And they're making seem Mako almost unimportant this time around...

 

I think it will be inferior.

Agreed.

 

Plus, replacing Idris Elba with the unconvincing John Boyega with a moustache sure doesn't help.

Not really a "future" film since it's available to stream now, but I just learned of its existence and it's new.

 

It's a feature length documentary that is just about the shower scene in Psycho.  Color me intrigued.  I hope to find time to watch it this weekend.

I was thinking of TFA, actually. Although well reviewed, ATB didn't make much money. Many critics praised Boyega, however. 

This is typical Hollywood people's mentality: find a fresh, young face who's just had astronomical (supporting) success, stick him as the lead in a very expensive film, and, hey presto, watch as all your hard-earned gets flushed down the toilet.

Too much responsibility, too quickly.

That's true but I'm not sure if Pacific Rim 2 will be a good showcase for his leading man abilities. It does feel like hey, let's not think about it and get that guy from TFA. Whatever he does, he will be crushed by the CGI monster scenes (or by the Michael Bayness of it all).

Is it the BREXIT thing?

 

I assume Lee has already posted about it somewhere here. Capaldi as Malcolm Tucker from The Thick Of It and Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge about BREXIT.

 

Could be potentially brilliant.

BREXIT: The Movie? Not much of a chance.

It will probably be a series of sketches, interviews online on the radio etc etc. A fluid multi-media thing rather than a structured series. Should be great fun actually. We could do with some really good topical political satire.

And holy mess, Tomas Alfredson's first film since Tinker Tailor is finally coming out.  Can't wait.  So glad to be going to the season of good movies.

 

 

Apparently The Snowman is really bad and Alfredson is even admitting as much, trying to explain what went wrong.  Very sad.  I hope he bounces back quickly with another one, the wait after Tinker Tailor was so long for his followup to be bad :(

Not at all, but JCVD surprised even the haters. Read the RT quotes:

And be enlightened.

 

Why are you assuming I wasn't familiar with JCVD the film?  Would it suprise you to know that I've seen it?  I did, and thought it was ok and not worth remembering.
