Well, can't be worse than Crash.

Many are calling it just that...

 

 

Or the worst since Crash.

Between those two pokeman trailers, I no longer have to see the movie. I have all the cute stuff right there in the trailers! :biggrin:

...Ryan Reynold's voice works for me, at least in terms of the films. If only a stuffed doll of pikachu actually looked like the cgi. I'd so buy one to sit on top of my PC.

Looks better than the first trailer But it's a shame to see Daimio's Were form so small. And also I think those idiots in charge couldn't tell that the blue coloring here wasn't representing actual literal blue lenses.

Caught Aquaman last night.

 

Enjoyed it, did not have the DC feel to it, but more of that adventure style pulpness. Definitely more humour in the first section of it then you expect in most DC films, but the latter half toned down the yucks for more serious CGI battles.

Although it is hard to see Dafoe in that costume without having flashbacks to his Green Goblin.

I thought the costumes in general were pretty bad, with Black Manta's power rangers level outfit being the worst offender. Otherwise really good pulpy fun.

 

I don't normally watch found footage horror, but a friend recommended "Hell House LLC" which managed to seriously creep me out on multiple occassions. Group of people building massive halloween haunted house in old hotel get more than they bargained for. Gets kinda dumb by the end though.

The Foreigner.

 

Interesting one, Jackie Chan as the small restaurant owner with a slightly fuzzy background whose daughter is killed by a rogue IRA operation in London, and he then ends up going to terrorise some politically correct IRA (headed by Pierce Brosnan) working on the peace process to get names of who killed his daughter. No frantic martial arts or acrobatics, but a nice pace of tension and character overall. A few twists and turns to the politics, the lies, and manipulations going on behind the scenes and then ends on a fairly low key, slightly somber note.

Now THIS is definitely a thread I can get into...

 

I watched Deep Blue 2 yesterday and honestly way better than the first one and all around impressed on a number of differnet levels...

 

Also I thought the actress is pretty cute...

 

Danielle Savre is her name...

I've been told I'm sexist because I won't watch the female led Captain Marvel. I did watch the female led Alita last night and thought it was solid entertainment.  Am I still sexist?

These days you have to ignore what people call you. I do that when people tell me I'm a sociopath, for example.

Not that I liked the Solo movie and I've mostly erased the movie from my mind. However, I came across this and it shows just how bad the colour grading was. Fan project from some random guy. While there is some over saturation in parts, I had forgotten how bad the original movie was.

I have no idea how ppl make these type of videos, but doesn't your TV have a large play in how it looks, too? I mean I saw it via Netflix and it looked a lot better than in that video. Certainly wasn't washed out and bland. I don't have the blu-ray tho and never will.

 

Edit: also the "after" section, it's not just over-saturation but over-contrast and other things. I wouldn't like either version. On my monitor/TV's anyway.

Hold on, let me consult the SocJus handbook...

Yep, guilty as charged. Luckily, you can atone for your grievous crime by buying 10 copies of the Special Collector's Edition Ghostbusters reboot blu-ray then giving it a 10/10 review on both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. Alternatively, you can contribute $500 to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's slush fund. Otherwise, you're a terrible person, unfollowed, swipe left, removed from Twitter.
