    TheUlyssesian reacted to Stark in Daniel Pemberton's ENOLA HOLMES (2020)   
    I didn’t particularly like the film, but if it means we’ll get another Pemberton score in this style I’ll take it - this was the best score of 2020 in my book!

    DC's R rated movies are pretty juvenile though? I don't think an R rating makes a movie adult. Tits and fucks are not a sign of maturity to me.
     
    Joker is an adult film for sure. I think ZSJL is a PG13 movie forced into to an R Rating. Birds of Prey is borderline. There is some violence but is it an adult film? I think not. 
     
    The Suicide Squad also doesn't seem like an adult film to me. The humor seems teenage level to me.

    The plane scene was overhyped garbage. The ending fight was terrible. The car chase sequence was very good.

    Indeed; that's what I meant. The decision to finish on the leading acting categories has some valid logic behind it, despite how crass it is. I would think it's safe to say that most of the viewers they want to attract are more familiar with and interested in actors than in producers or directors, so this ordering paves the way for a more climactic conclusion for that audience (whether or not Boseman turned out to be the winner). But by sticking with a rule that meant not all potential winners could participate, they simultaneously created the (entirely foreseeable) possibility of a far bigger anticlimax, and that's what bit them on the ass.
     
    I'd love to see Soderbergh's reaction when he learned that Hopkins had won.

    Disagree. The best action setpiece is easily the reverse chase scene.
     
    The plane was a huge disappointment: it looked as though a 747 gently taxi-ed into a wall. Meh. So much for "doing things for real."
     
    Movie's still mildly fun, though...

    Birth of a Nation definitely got rail roaded. It is not a very good film, it is good though but it would have been up for several oscars had the controversy not happened. Incidentally it stars Armie Hammer.
     
    James Franco had a lock on an Oscar nom for Disaster Artist but was snubbed once allegations surfaced.
     
    People ask what's the loss. Well the fact that they had to chuck footage and reshoot all the money in the world is already a write down.
     
    Army of the Dead was ready in June 2020 but delayed a year because they had to replace an actor.

    I am not endorsing either these people or condoning the media's behavior or anyone's behavior. I am just saying - it makes a difference. Only a fuckbrain would find that a controversial statement. It fucking making makes a difference if there is a controversial person associated with you movie.

    And there are literally thousands of articles when the allegations surfaced?
     
    What happens when during the promo people ask him about assault allegations? Ask Spielberg about it and other cast members? They absolutely would be within their journalistic right to do so. 
     
    Surely that is immensely positive press for the movie per Quintus. Maybe Quintus thinks having this story associated with this movie is a badge of honor and something to be celebrated.

    It is clearly newsworthy and affects the movie's prospects.
     
    These things are very real. Read about how Disney does not know what to do with Death of a Nile because of Hammer. Movies are being reshot because of accused actors. Zack Snyder reshot an entire character for his zombie film.
     
    So this definitely affects movie productions and is a point of discussion. It is not idle gossip. Sorry if you don't like. Nobody is passing judgements on human behavior in this thread if you notice. People are only discussing business prospects, releasability etc.

    Such a famous and iconic movie absolutely influences things. It has happened many times where movie adaptations influence subsequent stagings of the original play. The original play exists as a piece of the page - to be interpreted. I definitely think homage to the original film will happen. It happens right down to the hiring and casting of one of the original stars and giving her a producing credit - Rita Moreno - who apparently had nothing to do with the broadway production.
     
    I think it will be a re-imagination/re-make/re-interpretation - all of those things at once. I think it would be difficult (and even foolish) to ignore the film version in creating and executing this movie.

    Would it really be interesting for Williams to work painstakingly for 6 months on 3 hours of music not his own? I think I can see that it would not be an alluring proposition for him.
     
    I would agree in the long run I would rather have new music from him than him getting tied up in an arrangement job.
     
    At this point in his career, you are not going to hire Williams to simply arrange music for you.

    I think we discussed this when it was announced. And most felt that if Williams is going to spend 1.5 years on a movie, it better be composing and not arranging.
