The /sub/movies trifecta
but will there be
Drinking with Skeletons
Monkeys with guns
Bloody, R-Rated And Light On CGI
Wow this is a winning combo for /sub/movies.
throw in A24 for the quad
They both really want that K!
Huge Nolan fan here, but the marketing for this film has been pretty disappointing. Trailers have been okay, but the print marketing has been very underwhelming.
The hardly noticeable I in Interstellar mildly irritates me. Apart from that.. no Inception mention??
But yay a new Nolan film!
Autistic murdering intensifies
I hope Affleck finishes the Batman movie before this one.
The Accountant 2: The Auditing
I'm shocked to see this get the green light but I enjoyed the movie quite a bit so I'm up for it. There was certainly lots of potential for a franchise here.
I mean this is basically a Bruce Wayne movie
Jackie Chan vs James Bond.
Man, I guess those guys opening up the duffel bag full of home depot supplies is the Jackie Chan equivalent of opening a bag full of guns and ammo.
Will people stop giving the man trouble when he wants none of it?
It's like a Jackie Chan movie, minus the Jackie but double the Chan.
John Wick can kill a man with a pencil but Jackie can incapacitate him with an eraser.
The structure and character work in this movie is top notch, which is one of the reasons it's lasted the test of time where so many disaster flicks have not. He mentions the intro of David (Goldbums character) but the intro for all all three protagonists is top notch. I especially love the Will Smith intro which is just the right side of cheesy and hitting the big reveal on what is actually sitting over the city.
This was peak Early Middle-Aged Goldblum if you ask me
Every time I watch the movie again, I feel like there's a ton of arcs and other parts I didn't remember. There's a lot going on in that movie. Love it!
People give the film shit because the President decides to go off, fly, and fight in the final jet battle. You know, the guy has lost everything at this point, why not rally the flag in the battle for the last ditch effort for humanity.
He'd rather go down fighting than camping out in a bunker waiting for the inevitable. The dude literally knows that there is no mercy or negotiation with the aliens from that mind-meld; hes gotta fight. Hes a fighter pilot, he belongs in the air.
I was the only person in the theater when I saw Crank 2 and it was seriously unsettling not having anyone else around to confirm that this scene was actually happening. I thought I was having a stroke or something.
I love the fact they are wearing rubber masks even though they don't change into any creatures. That's such a funny detail.
Haha, this comment brings me back.
When I was watching this in the theater way back when, someone else was sitting in the seat right next to mine - total stranger, I tell you. About 5 seconds into this scene, we both turned our heads toward each other, and I just threw my hands up in the air like, "Yeah, I don't know wtf's going on either."
I'm not saying I was a part of this fine film's production, but the director was upset with the the human fight scene at the electric transformers and one of the assistant directors said give me 10k and 2 days, I have a crazy reshoot idea using stunt doubles in masks.
That must be why the movie got such bad reviews. The incorrect aspect ratio was on display. It all makes sense now.
Yes, I'm sure that's the only reason...
Reminds me of the notice for viewers on the doors of the theater for Interstellar saying it's normal that the volume of the music is so loud it covers dialogue and you can't hear a lot it and it was intended by the filmmaker.
I saw a trailer on TV last night and the aspect ratio changed like 3 times. In the trailer. On my TV.
Such a great speech. Hard to believe he once was a poor young black man.
In all seriousness, has he aged at all? I grew up on this man. Spent a lot of my childhood staring at his mug. He looks the same. I look much older.
Edit: This was 2002. TIL Steve Martin does look older.
Massive round of applause
"Thank you but this night is about Tom."
Made me laugh so hard. This is definitely one of the funniest speeches I've heard.
If you're curious, this was 2002.
He has been developing a script for years, based on the life of the “Fantasy Island” star Hervé Villechaize, with his friend Sacha Gervasi, director of “Anvil!” “He interviewed Hervé right before he killed himself. Sacha was a journalist, sitting here like we are now. After he killed himself, Sacha realized Hervé’s interview was a suicide note.”
This was a dream project for Dinklage. Really happy for him.
His big break was getting cast in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), by which time he had become so poor he was living out of his car in Los Angeles. Prior to being signed up by Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli, he made ends meet by working as a rat catcher's assistant near his South Central home. From what his co-actor Christopher Lee saw, The Man with the Golden Gun filming was possibly the happiest time of Hervé's life: Lee likened it to honey in the sandwich between an insecure past and an uncertain future. In addition to being an actor, Villechaize became an active member of a movement in 1970s and 1980s California to deal with child abuse and neglect, often going to crime scenes himself to help comfort abuse victims. Villechaize's former co-workers recalled that despite his stature, he would often confront and chastise spousal and child abusers when he arrived at crime scenes.
I feel like I might cry watching this like I did watching Simon Birch.
Villechaize was suffering from chronic pain due to having normal-sized internal organs putting increasing pressure on his small body. According to Self, Villechaize often slept in a kneeling position so he could breathe more easily
He looks like a mini Hugo Weaving.
A Hugo Wee-ving, if you will.
All the past tense talk about Mel Brooks and John Candy. Losing Candy is bad enough. Don't make me think about a world without Mel Brooks.
I'll never understand what happened with Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Mel Brooks and Leslie Nielsen should've lightning in a goddamn bottle.
"I'm a mog! Half-man, half-dog. I'm my own best friend." Barf
I feel Leslie Nielsen is best when he's not trying to be funny. Like he's not in on the joke which makes it a thousand times funnier. After the Naked Gun, he became a Flanderized version of himself and that's where it started going wrong.
