  1. I can't believe Cameron let them ALIEN 3, T2. He owes Fincher an apology. I was enjoying the first half hour or so. The action felt bright and clean and visceral. It was rushing a bit, felt like they could have spent an extra ten minutes setting up Dani's character and seeing the terminator/protector searching a little more to find her. But I was going with it... But then I think the movie just completely shits the bed. With the bad guy just turning up out of nowhere the second the character finish their exposition. HE'S HERE! No build up. No tension. Just crashing dark, murkey CGI. I pretty much despised the last half hour when it goes full INDIANA JONES 4 with people being able to survive anything as long as they're wearing a seatbelt. Anyone else find it weird that they make such a big deal of the immigration angle but his has no bearing whatsoever to the rest of the plot? From the trailers I expected a comment on how the rich west is too connected to machines/internet and it made us easy targets. The new saviour would come from the "third world". Just something to bring it together a bit more. But then they have her come from mexico city. She might as well have come from LA again. It added nothing new. Also, who was the black dude she calls up for help? Did I miss something? People seem to be digging the flick and saying it's the third best... I think it's the worst one yet... The script was so bad... The "power source" thing at the end was laughable.
  2. I'd rather see a sequel than a tv series... But if ya doing a tv show I'd make it a prequel and keep it canon with the original movie. Stick with all the tech and visual designs of the 90s. Rather than going the Star Wars/Aliens route of having more advanced tech in the past. Make is a story about the Event Horizon's original mission and follow the crew as they first activate the drive and find themselves in another dimension. This new place seducing them rather than terrifying them until they eventually realise they're in a place that has links to more ancient evil and have to escape and warn mankind... which they do... but not before...you know... raping, eating and murdering each other in the process... I'd start out STAR TREK end up HELLRAISER.
  3. Man, they've been working on this flick for what seems like two decades and after all that time and all of the different versions they ended up with this... It looks terrible. Doesn't help that it also looks like it was shot on an iphone with that high frame rate shite. It also seems to have been a mistake not going the marvel route and de-aging/morphing with a real actor. They shot all his younger parts in motion capture, AVATAR style then created the character in the computer. That's a fully CG Will Smith. Weird.
  4. Remember when making a hit movie meant you got to go make something original? Now it means you get to lock yourself into the best part of a decade of making the same movie over and over again. I'll never get excited about seeing talented filmmakers lost to franchise bubbles. It's depressing and this is from a fan of the franchise. Remember when Cruise was swapping directors, making each one something different?
  5. I only managed 76 movies in the cinema this year. My lowest number in a decade. Doesn't help that my once glorious local Cineworld has transformed itself into a fucking hell hole of gimmick screens (screenX, superscreens, 4dx) and pretty much scrapped all weekday morning showings. I ended doubling down and watching a right load of shite at home this year. Very few new watches. After a day of work I just found myself rewatching old 80/90s movies. Anyway.

  6. Saw this at the cinema last night. It's just a big bonkers rock solid b-tier DIE HARD knock off. If you're like me and enjoy shit like SUDDEN DEATH, I'm sure you'll really enjoy it. It's way more fun than shit like SKY SCRAPER and was made for a tenth of the budget. I'd love to see more (british) movies like it in cinemas. Shame it's on so few screens. For the record... We pitched and came pretty close to writing this movie. I should be bitter as fuck and hate it for that fact alone... But they won me over. So yeah. I'd say it is worth checking out.
  7. PROMETHEUS went into production like a year later at a similar budget level and with a very similar plot. It made about the same amount at the box office as THE MUMMY did. They should have just made Del toro's flick when they had the chance...
  8. Tom Cruise was part of the movie. He signed on with Del Toro directing and James Cameron producing. It was Universal that killed it. They were in pre-production when the studio decided a 150 million dollar R-rated horror movie was too risky... They demanded it be PG-13 and Del Toro walked. The movie collapsed. Universal got their Tom Cruise starring PG-13 horror a few years later with THE MUMMY... It sucked and killed their "DARK UNIVERSE" franchise stone dead.
  9. Yeah, I'm not sure if there are articles out there. I just read the original draft when it sold last year.
  10. I put most of the logic problems on Krasinski. He completely butchered the original script. Used maybe 30% of it and restructured it entirely. For the record, I think he directed the fuck out of what he was left with. But agree with those who couldn't get past the crappy world building and stupidity of the characters.
  11. It's better than what ended up on screen. But not by much. It's still hampered by the terrible story Lucas handed him.
  12. Man. I think we need Indy fighting Nazis again. My idea would be to do a 60s set sci-fi adventure. It would open with Indy stealing a holy relic from Hitler’s lost art collection, held in a private museum in the Swiss Alps. He would return the relic to Washington when it would be revealed to be a fake. It's really the key to nazi rat line. A map leading to a bunch of real surviving nazis living in exile in South Africa and thought to be close to completing an unfinished nazi weapons project developed in WW2. The yanks had heard about it from paperclip scientists. Something known...only as “Die Glocke” but until recently did not believe it existed. Mixing advanced and occult technologies, the device is said to be capable of controlling time itself. The nazis believe they’ll be able to use it to go back to the 1930s and change the outcome of the war and allow the Third Reich to reign supreme. Indy, of course, thinks they’re delusional. He’s seen crazier shit than most… But time travel? The Americans don’t need him to believe it. Just find it. A group of black South African mercenaries will do the rest. Led by their enigmatic female leader. The last thing they want is more racist fuckers in control around the world. So Indy heads off to South Africa, pretending to be a wealthy German businessman… trying to find his way “home” to his fellow nazis. There are all kinds of fun and games before they eventually find the secret nazi hide out where tests are being done with the “Die Glocke”. Young prisoners are sent into a room with the activated device and come out seconds later looking like shriveled dying old men. Our big bad guy is not an evil old nazi but a young genius American physicist. An alt-right prick. He sees no difference with what he’s doing working with the exiled nazis to make greater discoveries to what the US are doing working with Nazis scientists to put a man in space. They’re are all just searching for answers. But the scientist is having problems. The device is not working as expected. It’s localizing the time displacement. It’s changing time in the vicinity of the device rather than sending the people themselves back in time. People are growing older before their eyes…. Indie sees it happen and shrugs. He’s seen this kinda thing before… It never ends well for Nazi scum… So… erm… there are complications. Indy is betrayed at some point and ends up captured in time for the bad guy to have figured out the problem with the device. But they need to test it first. Might as well use their new prisoner. They put Indy in in the device, assuming he will die with the rest of them, when the south Africans Mercs arrive to save the day… They take out the big bad guy and the nazis… but its too late for Indy. He’s already in the device and it’s gone past the point of no return…. But for the first time… the device works. They look on in wonder as rather than aging before their eyes, the already old as fuck Indy… begins to get younger, the decades falling away (to reveal a recast YOUNG INDY) when with a blast of light he disappears. The South Africans realize they were too late… destroy the device and get out of there… In Washington word comes through the mission is complete but Indiana Jones never made it… A small state funeral is held… People will never know what he did for his country... Or the world. Fade to black: Then fade up again… Reveal the year. It’s 1936 and with a blast of blinding light, in the middle of a farm in rural South Africa… A farmer finds a young man unconscious on the ground. He wakes up and the farmer hands him his dropped hat… We may not recognize his face but we know the man. This is our rebooted Indiana Jones. Back in 1936 and ready for a bunch more adventures around the world! Okay. I realize none of this makes a lick of sense. But I’m avoiding real work. What do you want from me? Oh yeah. The title? Let’s call it: INDIANA JONES AND THE RISE OF THE BLACK SUN.
  13. I was so looking forward to this flick... And found it all a bit underwhelming. I was shocked at how much it felt like all the other Marvel flicks. I was expecting more of a departure. Ultimately it felt a lot like all the other marvel origin movies but rather than a fun/interesting hero fighting a bland characterless dark mirror image of himself, we have a bland characterless hero fighting a fun/interesting mirror image of himself.
