I could have killed more...

Toy Story 3 was pretty weak but Pixar's latest films are far worse.  Not hopeful for 4.  

You don't _play_ something as transcendental as a David Cage _experience_ (the childish term "game" cannot suffice here), moron. You should go back to your generic, non-immersive Zeldas and Maddens.

Will it be the sci-fi movie of the Twenties?


- '60s: 2001: A Space Odyssey

- '70s: Star Wars and Alien

- '80s: Blade Runner

- '90s: The Matrix 

- '00s: Donnie Darko

- '10s: ... Eh ...

- '20s: ... eh ... The Midnight Sky?

I think Interstellar was supposed to be the big sci-fi thing, but clearly dropped the ball.


One could argue that Ex Machina and Under the Skin (more the former than the latter) have had a fair amount of aesthetic influence on a lot of modern sci-fi TV and film. At least on the lower end of the budget. Plenty of off-brand knockoffs and parodies to be found on Netflix.


And if you consider Gravity sci-fi, that film has pretty much dictated the look of every big budget movie set in space in recent years, including this Clooney flick (there's clearly a very Gravity-esque action sequence).

Which seems more exploitative than anything else. It turned The Martian from a good movie into a bad one. The Clooney one above is clearly best avoided.

The musician biopics keep a-coming!




And the Bowie estate did not give permission to use any of his music. How can they pull it off without the music?

Michael Bay does COVID-19, COVID-20, COVID-21, COVID-22, and COVID-23, all in one movie. Huh. What will be the next - COVID-24?

It's Bay and yet I saw no attempt to defeat the virus with massive loud explosions. Pfft! 

Bay had nothing to do with this outside producing.

It works at the hands of competent directors, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit works.  But this looks awful, there's no weight to the animated characters at all, it doesn't gel once in the whole trailer

20th Century Studios Taps Dan Trachtenberg to Helm Fifth Predator Movie


It’s been nearly five years since Dan Trachtenberg last stepped in the director’s chair for his feature debut, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and now it looks as though he’s found his next project in the form of a fifth Predator film at 20th Century Studios, according to Deadline.


Plot details are currently unknown on the film, but sources report that it will not pick up on the unresolved plot threads from the fourth installment in the sci-fi action franchise, 2018’s The Predator, co-written and directed by original film co-star Shane Black (The Nice Guys). That film ended with the military, led by Boyd Holbrook (The Fugitive), finding a special mech suit entitled the Predator Killer onboard the titular creature’s ship built to help humanity fight against the alien race.


The script for the forthcoming fifth title is set to be penned by Patrick Aison, who’s previously worked as a writer and producer on Fox’s Wayward Pines, Audience Network’s Kingdom, Amazon Prime Video’s Jack Ryan and USA Network’s Treadstone. John Davis, who has been attached as producer of the franchise since the 1987 original, is set to once again produce the film.




A Bear McCreary score for Predator could be interesting!
