No it's the reviewer score, not the audience score.

There certainly is an element of "this isn't as visually interesting as a Del Toro film" aspect to the reviews I've read (and a David Harbour isn't Ron Perlman bit as well) in the professional reviews.  Makes it a bit difficult to suss what I'll think which doesn't happen that often.

 

To add to that the trailers themselves have been a mixed bag as well, so I'm getting a lot of confused signals on this one.

I don't know, most reviewers would probably say "not as good as Del Toro's version" and not such choice quotes as "this is the worst movie of the year".

I finally got around to watching The Bird Box on NetFlix. It was OK. The book was better and the book was just OK. One thing that struck me as funny. I wonder if Trevante Rhodes knows the part he played in the movie was filled by a dog in the book?

Finished up Deadpool 2. The after credits were hilarious.

Inside ‘Hellboy’ Reboot’s Fiery Shoot: Fights Over David Harbour, Cinematography and a Tree 
 

 

One insider described a prolonged dispute over a surreal tree that figures prominently in the film. Marshall wanted a realistic-looking, asymmetrical tree. But the insider said Levin overruled him, insisting on a symmetrical tree. Then, in postproduction, the tree became asymmetrical again. Singer disputed any suggestion that Levin “somehow mucked it up in a back-and-forth tug-of-war over symmetry versus asymmetry,” adding: “The design of the tree, like hundreds of other design elements in the movie, went through an exhaustive design and evolution process.”

The tone of the trailer turned me off on this remake.  I don't expect much of it. I like Harbour in Stranger Things but his take is ridiculous and not in a good way.

So Palpatine is alive ? Actually never mind, probably too obvious bait.  

 

Big meh.

Hi to all!


I’m a big fan of horror movies because they are mysterious, creepy, and thoughtful.

Top 3 from me, all of them released in 2018:

1. Venom


2. The Predator


3. Halloween


 

Kindly post your favorites :)

I'm excited for the 4K re-release of Tim Burton Batman movies in June - at least that's the chant.

Meh is about the only thing I got from the teaser. And why is the subtitle The Rise of Skywalker when ever critic on the planet lauded the break with the Skywalker saga back in The Last Jedi, finally freeing Star Wars from the chokehold of Vader and his family?

 

Also really creative. Back at some desert planet (but it's probably Jakku, not Tattooine, nyeh nyeh nyeh, like haha it's salt not snow) riding on a barge like craft, a semi destroyed Death Star shell and a surprisingly... bulky Billy Dee Williams flying the Falcon with Chewie.

 

I guess Rich Evans was right when he said Star Wars is creatively bankrupt. There's no way to make a film in that universe that's going to be anything else than ridiculous pandering or a weird cinematic failure.

I think that the passing of the torch is one of the things the movies (especially the second one) have done the worst at and the trailer really reminded me of that.

I'm hoping Mike, Jay and Rich are already working on a new The Nerd Crew episode. That way we'd get some quality entertainment out of the teaser. :p

For those that don't know. Here's the Solo teaser anylsis.

It's been a long time since I saw a Star Wars trailer I felt absolutely nothing for. Heck, that title sounds like the movie's targeted at my complaints.

 

But hah. Here we are.

I laughed pretty hard on a second viewing of the trailer. When Rey does the back flip I heard Fat Bastard's voice saying "I hope my wire-fighting team is ready!"

 

Thought now I guess the main takeaway is that I hear voices.

You know, I sort of like the actress playing Rey. She has a great stoic/determined expression. But that alone doesn't make a movie and yeah, that trailer is a snooze. I don't even find it bad-it's-funny, just uninspiring and static.

 

Is it wrong that I'd sorta like to see Rey and Kylo Ren get together, discover there's a middle-ground to be had, make lots of little Grey-Side babies and rule the universe? :teehee:  *runs away*

I've already seen jokes on the main reddit thread for the teaser about "woodoo hide" and "Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center" and "Palpatine's behind it all!".
