TEH LEAKZ are real- have seen the photos from the upcoming trailer that got out early.

Charlie Cox is back as Matt Murdock

in Spider-man.  What's rumor are two after-credits scenes, which seem to be in-line with what happened in the second Venom movie and with the spoiler above:

Supposedly, Peter gets a job at the Daily Bugle and Tom Hardy pops up as Eddie Brock.  The other rumored scene is Matt Murdock going home and taking out a case with his Daredevil suit.

Can't help but feel you have your expectations a little high when there's a fucking Echo TV series coming, who is pretty much a poor mans DD (and a DD ex)

Pretty sure that Mission Impossible 3 still slaps the shit out of most modern studio action movies.

Saw GB: Afterlife, it's like a Golden age Hollywood masterpiece compared to 2016 which means it's about as good as GB2. ;)

Shame Hoffman is no longer with us, he was such a great villain and very underrated as an actor.

Would've been perfect for the role of Trump or Steve Bannon too

Is he really underrated? He's great but he was recognized as such, and worked with the top directors around already.

Hoffman's most acclaimed role was my least favorite movie that I remember him in: Capote. Although he was fine, movie was just blegh.

I don't think he's been underrated at all since at least Boogie Nights.

Hoffman playing Bannon or Trump?

 :shaking

I dunno, a Hollywood retelling of modern political history has zero appeal to me anymore. As a dumb teenager I was all about Oliver Stone but you grow up and realize it's mostly bullshit and narrative shortcuts or if you're being generous a played out morality tale that you've seen a hundred times before.

Like, with Bannon or Trump in particular, even as someone who goes out of my way to never watch cable or broadcast news, through the few current event podcasts that I listen to regularly, I've already heard the particulars of most of the stories over and over again for the past five years. I don't need to sign up for Showtime and see 10 hours of Brendan Gleeson wear a Trump wig for some smug Hollywood writer's idea of a takedown.

(With Bannon, Errol Morris already did a very slick and entertaining one-on-one documentary a few years ago. People shit on it because he wasn't didactic enough but it was great seeing Bannon expose himself as a piece of shit in his own words for 90 minutes.)

Like, remember Christian Bale playing Cheney? Brolin as Dubya? Does anyone pull those out and revisit those movies regularly after they come out?  God, I think they have Clive Owen playing Clinton on FX this year. I can't take the second-hand embarrassment of that.

I haven't watched any of the three, so i obviously have the most qualified opinion here.
Based on the trailer, i'd probably go for Green Knight, but it could very well be more A24 wankery.

New LG soundbar arrived, it sounds absolutely fantastic.

In movies like Dunkirk I can hear the German planes flying overhead and each individual splash as the English jump in the water  :whew
I like my new Edifier PC speakers and I had a decent 5.1 set from Sony but this is on a whole different level.  :rejoice

thought about getting a soundbar before, but most were so expensive that it seemed better to get the full surround system  :thinking

I got the LG DSN8YG, known as the SN8 outside of Europe it got some awards and good reviews and performs well for the $800 price tag it normally has.
https://www.lg.com/us/sound-bars/lg-sn8yg-sound-bar
https://www.techhive.com/article/3566075/lg-sn8yg-soundbar-review.html

But it was on sale for Black Friday, from ~699 Euro to 329 Euro.
Probably such a good deal because this is a 2020 model and there's already a 2021 update with some additional sound modes and an updated chip.
The main differences seem to be that the 2020 model only does Google Assistant while the 2021 version has Alexa, Spotify and some other apps built-in as well.
Plus they've added dedicated sports and gaming modes.

Those features would also be nice but it's hard to find a better soundbar at ~300 Euro.

then I looked at the surround systems, thought about how expensive they are and the hassle with setting up speakers  :angryjoe went with a good 2.1 set and just turn the volume up to hear everything, fuck the neighbors  :)

There's about 5 I haven't seen on that list, but you can't put 3 star wars films as one entry you cheating fucks.

Also seems pretty US-centric; no bicycle thieves, seventh seal, cinema paradiso? No hitchcock, godard, fellini?

I've encountered a lot of people who haven't seen the modern 'classics'.

It's a weird list. You expect Goodfellas to be one there but it isn't, yet they somehow included Gangs of New York.

Watched Layer Cake on Netflix, still holds up with Craig as not yet Bond but somewhat of the same attitude and style he had in Casino Royale.
I believe it was the film that played a part in getting him the role.

I also like the very creative cuts that Vaughn played around with and became his signature style with Kingsman.
Interesting how a lot of things came from this movie even though it isn't that well known.

Surely this isn't a ranking right? The Dark Knight being the second greatest movie of all time? It's not even the second greatest Batman film.

It's a very specific list for a time and type of film watcher I think, like I've seen a lot of them but also I'd think a lot of my real life friends would have too, but various internet types have certainly seen almost all of them. Many of the pre-1980's films on the list feel like ones you'd watch because they have lots of canonized history to them more than because you're someone who watches older films.

Finally, I will never not contend that Little Miss Sunshine is a very bad film with one good line and that everyone has been gaslighting me about it being otherwise for over a decade now.

There are indeed some movies on there that are remarkably mediocre, most notably E.T. .

No Bergman, no Dreyer, no Bunuel, no Bresson, no Ozu, no Tarkovsky... and this is just to mention the big names.
I wouldn't do a 100 list without something like Landscape in the Mist or Spirit of the Beehive.
But then you have shit like Little Miss Sunshine and Green Mile.  :-\
Also Mary and Max was alright, but there are certainly better examples of prestige animation out there.
Hell, i'd even take Anomalisa over it.

Also since you put a Cassavetes, you have to go with Woman Under The Influence, come on...  :doge
And you choose 2 Scorsese, and you go with Gangs of New York and The Departed?  :lol Taxi Driver was too obvious?

At first glance I assumed it was the IMDB's top user-rated, which after re-checking places Dark Knight at #4 and similarly Shawshank at #1, though otherwise the list seems just an arbitrary popular selection put into a blender.

Oof, that is a painfully “basic bitch” list but any list that aims to be even a little authoritative instead of personal is a fool’s errand and doomed from the start. Everyone brings their own baggage to a movie, which is what makes watching them great.

Also Ridley Scott on today’s Maron podcast was fantastic. Dude has no patience for bullshit or false humility.

Oh yeah, i'd have The Belly of an Architect up in there. :-*

But seriously, i see the usefulness of these kind of lists as a way to provide a general groundwork to show what cinema is and can be.
A list you can watch and, once you're done, have a decently comprehensive idea of all styles (ideally at its greatest) and... diverse voices.

Listing up a bunch of Hollywood movies from barely 3 decades, with a handful of foreign darlings thrown in for pity, is really robbing people from discovering how deep and wide the medium can go.

Also why i don't think doing "the IMDB top 100" is a good way to go about it, either.

Last Night in Soho

Everyone said the first 2/3rds are good and last 1/3rd is a miss.

Yeah, the first 2/3rds are stylish fun Edgar Wright really entertaining and interesting film. The last 1/3rd just...isn't very good. The plot concept for the whole thing is fine, but he definitely flubbs the execution of the last 1/3rd. Could've been a great flick if he pulled that off. As is, it's still worth a watch but a bit weak.

Little Miss Sunshine I guess is there as a forerunner for the 'mumblecore' indie bittersweet comedic drama about post modern families that has become bread and butter for the likes of the Duplass Brothers, and given that context, yeah it's okay.

Having said that, I'm not gonna lie, the reveal of Olives choice of music and dance routine and costume had me laughing so hard I was struggling to breathe when I first saw it, and is honestly one of the funniest things I've ever seen on film, just from the sheer level of inappropriateness, when kids pageants are famously skeevy as fuck anyway.

Venom was a mess but I liked it more than the first one.  The Eddie/venom dynamic was fun and the rest felt like a bad 2000's superhero movie.  It's a real shame Sony has this.

Potato got you, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a video rip tucked away somewhere in the internet archive.  I’ve found an obscure movie or two there sometimes when nowhere else had it.

When you're looking for a movie and it's NOWHERE (including torrent sites) except some random guy on Amazon selling a dvd for more than 100€ (+ shipping). :fbm

Whatever happened to art preservation?  >:(

Paying a dvd of a movie you don't even know if it's good, 100€, would be like buying a GPU right now, i just couldn't live with it.

Come on don’t be coy, what movie?

Wild guess here...


Catherine: The Naked Queen

No, but here's a movie suggestion for you:
Dog Lay Afternoon (1976).
If the title of this Italian masterpiece doesn't convince you already, here's the synopsis:
Quote
A young girl witnesses her mother having sex with the family dog. When her father finds out, he burns the dog alive. She is so traumatized by these incidents that she later turns into a nymphomaniac.
spoiler (click to show/hide)
The actual movie is actually pretty tame sexploitation, tbh.

Bruised. Halle Berry's done a MMA movie. It's basically a poor version of The Wrestler. It doesn't have any of that film's depth, and it's exactly what you imagine a Halle Berry MMA movie would be.

Halle Berry...has there ever been a more hyped actress that didn't deserve the attention?

Jessica Alba. I don't think she ever came close to a good performance? I can't even give her credit for Sin City.

It's hard to be taken serious when you're that gorgeous sadly. I can't imagine her having been offered roles where she wasn't meant as eye-candy. They barely make decent roles for women as it is, it's not like back in the old days.
