  1. Doubtful, but who knows. They cancelled the 3D re-releases of Star Wars (except E1) and I heard that work on those were already underway, so they could just see it as a sunken cost. But I doubt it, DC published a couple a days ago that it will be featured on the ‘Fandome’ event on 22nd August.
  2. Hahaha, digging up an old quote like that! Well, it seems to me that rationalization usually takes place after a decision/action is made, to try and justify that behavior (aka post-rationalization, the explanation follows decision-making). Koray’s statement is still made during the decision making process (sometimes pre-rationalization, usually based on emotion and cognitive bias) and it seems he’s weeding out his values and lands in a decision rooted in moral justification (which is a kind of rationalization) to use as a basis before the decision is made. So I guess it’s an emotional response (that he “likes” LLL and their products, and wants to “save” them from an impeding bankruptcy), as well as the fact that he probably harbors a bias towards saving LLL (over other failing businesses) and also (perhaps) an unconscious bias towards an outdated business model - based on fear of change (denial/frustration) - to some degree certainly fueled by nostalgia. It’s business as usual, we’re all the same.
  3. Why does the JP-franchise keep doing this, digging up minor characters from JP1 and making a big deal out of it. These people were in the original for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-second and bringing them back is not like the second coming. I hope this doesn’t become a thing. Otherwise, the next Star Wars movie will have this guy returning and the press release will be like ”You’ll NEVER guess who is back!”
  4. Ummm, just google it. Sony used same images on the official soundtracks that were re-released in 2015. No need for any custom covers. They’re litterally the first and second images that shows up if you search for, for example “soundtrack empire strikes back star wars”.
  5. Wait? There’s a alternate, quieter opening for Buckbeak? This is one of my favorite cues but I’ve always felt that the drums in the intro are jarring in comparison to the rest of the tracks. I’d have loved, absolutely loved, for it to be included. Also, to have Time Past without the ticking... The dream!
  6. There are “demos” that JW recorded with a full orchestra... THOSE, we don’t have...
  7. Just give us the tracks Williams composed and recorded for Solo already!
  8. Yes, I have proof. You can trust me.
  9. When Zack Snyder says that this is his original vision, I call him a liar on that. He has 20/20 hindsight on what people complained about the released cut. Of course he’s going to change as much of that as possible - be it his “original” vision or not. Business-wise it makes sense, but his original vision it is not.
  10. Fair enough, I’ve never read the books. But I see a lot of people holding up these movies to standards they don’t really earn. But just because they’re not “deep” doesn’t make them bad. To be fair, most of the “geek media” that we consume today is made for kids. Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Transformers, Ninja Turtles, Sonic... That doesn’t mean it can’t be entertaining - quite the opposite. A “kids-movie” will be good and entertaining for all ages if it is well made, has some kind of plot to be resolved and clear internal logic. I don’t need it to be “high art”. I don’t think I’m being unreasonable. I watched Deep Blue Sea 3 and found it passable for chrissakes... ; )
  11. I am not a huge fan of the Potter franchise... I don’t know how long it’s been since I last saw any of the movies, but I’d say a minimum of 5 years, but from what I remember Phoenix is an entertaining film, one of the best of the lot. Who knows, maybe I’d feel differently now, but I doubt it. I’d probably forgive any lack of plot for the pure entertainment it brings. Also, it’s a Potter movie... any complaint about plot in these movies, my brain just goes “it’s made for kids, how much’d ya expect?” On that scale it’s absolutely fine. I know fans are rabid about these movies, but I’d wager it has more to do with nostalgia, the sheer amount of wealth of material (that makes it fun to “dig in to”), and the fact that they all have a rather high standard of quality along side each other (not counting The Fantastic Beasts movies that are horridly dreadful), rather than any hidden depths.
  12. The Rental If I were to choose one word to describe this movie, it’d be ‘pointless’. First, this movie takes forever to get stated. For a movie that is 89 mins, there are no scares at all for the first 30 mins. Just set up. Which gets me to my second point. Set up can be good if it takes the plot somewhere or has some kind of payoff. This is not the case here. This movie is without any kind of depth whatsoever, all characters are without motivation and the ending is unsatisfactory in every way. Deep Blue Sea 3 The first one is a personal favorite, and I know every beat by heart. I know I’ve seen the second one, but for the life of me I can’t remember anything about it, so that can’t be a good sign. After seeing the third one, I have the feeling it won’t stay with me either, but it was entertaining enough.
  13. Let’s create a petition so that Quint also get’s his own show. What happened on the Indianapolis? Who were his friends? How’d he get to Amity? How’d he get the Orca? How’d he get those shark teeth at the front of the captain’s cabin? And most importantly HOW DOES HE EARN A LIVIN’? The fans have demanded to know for 45 years! Not.
  14. This looks terrible. Can’t wait ‘till they do a prequel on Quint...
