    Everybody sing along with me!
    The Morning After (The Poseidon Adventure)
    There's got to be a morning after
    If we can hold on through the night.
    We have a chance to find the sunshine
    Let's keep on lookin' for the light
    Oh, can't you see the morning after ?
    It's waiting right outside the storm.
    Why don't we cross the bridge together
    And find a place that's safe and warm ?
    It's not too late, we should be giving,
    only with love can we climb.
    It's not too late, not while we're living,
    Let's put our hands out in time.
    There's got to be a morning after.
    We're moving closer to the shore
    I know we'll be there by tomorrow ;
    And we'll escape the darkness,
    We won't be searchin' any more.
    There's got to be a morning after
    (Repeat 8x's to fade)

    Hopefully we'll see more than cheap Earthly nature settings this time (forest, trees, lakes, desert, ...). Few people realize that the world of Star Wars needs to be a lot more artificial.

    The reviews?

    95% on Rotten Tomatoes (188 counted)

    "Smart, original, and above all terrifying, It Follows is the rare modern horror film that works on multiple levels -- and leaves a lingering sting."

    A classic, in my book. I don't know any score that is more sad than this one. The recording puts you on the stage right in the middle of the string players. Very 3D!

    For me it's already praised too much. Tarsem is not a good director, or someone with a great film language (compared to him, the George Lucas of the Prequels is a grandmaster), which he establishes once more with Immortals. The Fall is easily his best movie to date but he literally went to the world's most beautiful locations to make it and it can be enjoyed for that reason alone ... AND he does something rather unexpected with the casting of the child actor in the movie. It's a real child! Not a clever know-it-all, too mature for her age Hollywood child. In fact, many moviegoers will be chocked and not even recognize what it is.

    It's not a very good movie though ... It takes its time because the director thought of 2001: ASO ... but 'slow' isn't enough to embody Kubrick's film.

    Now that I think about it, don't we both agree on the mediocrity of Spielberg's War Of The Worlds too?

    The first Matrix is like Alien: No fat and beautiful in its simplicity.
    The sequels feel like the makers had nothing left to say so and what they did say feels so unnecessary.

    BTW, I agree he should make up for Indy 4 too but not with Indy 5. Like I said before, I want to see a small Spielberg film. Maybe a story about a man's survival (played by Harrison Ford) in the desert and an exclusive woodwinds score by J. Williams. I think it would do surprisingly well too.

    It feels less convoluted and more focussed on one single storyline than TDK though.

    I don't see the greatness, not in the pitch, not in the cast, not in the direction ... This movie doesn't even succeed to be some kind of guilty pleasure.

    AC1 got a reaction from Luke Skywalker in Alien 5 by Neill Blomkamp   
    Well, for one thing, it was Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep that dictated the presence of androids/replicants, not the Alien universe. Also, even though he is made a 100 years later, the innards of Ash (tubes, white blood) look less advanced or real than the innards of the replicants (red blood/no tubes). Somehow they must've stepped away from the genetic engineering/human cloning of BR and start making more robot-like people. It's a bit of an odd continuity ...

    The point is Abrams will make the Ewoks suffer .... It will be Disney's way of saying: "Star Wars does no longer belong to you, Lucas!"

    The Avengers: Good yet incredibly unattractive looking movie that somehow manages to be funny and entertaining until the gate with the universe opens up and flying monkeys come out of it to destroy our cities. It's kinda sad that good Marvel movies like The Avengers, Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy end being good as soon as the obligatory big finale starts. They really have to come up with something more interesting than massive CGI battles. The build-up to the climax (character introduction and interaction, individual feats, ...) is always so much better.

    "Are you an alien?"
    (OMG, the two universes coexist!)
