'franchise needs maintenance' shocked to hear that, especially from Diesel, who was talking about Fate of the Furious like it was a legitimate Oscar contender when he was interviewed while they were making it if I recall... lol As crazy as it sounds this is probably because of how The Fate of the Furious aka Fast and Furious 8 underperformed... strangely as it sounds it only made 1.3 billion on a budget of 250 million, which was a giant leap from the 190 budget of Furious 7 and a fall of the intake of Furious 7's 1.5 billion

I don't think anybody expected it to make more than Fast 7. 7 had that Paul Walker factor that clearly elevated it. It also had a better director.

F8 seriously earned A LOT considering how much worse that film was.

2 for 1 Angelina Jolie news: a Maleficent sequel is gearing up to shoot (with one half of the directing duo behind Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) in the first quarter of 2018, but as we know she was also heavily rumoured to be playing the Bride of Frankenstein in the upcoming Universal Studios monsters reboot/Dark Universe movie. However, a new interview with Bill Condon (who's directing The Bride of Frankenstein) says that no one has been locked down in the title role, but that the film is scheduled to shoot February 2018... which may mean that Jolie may be out as the Bride of Frankenstein in favour of reprising her Maleficent role. Personally, I'd MUCH rather see her as the Bride of Frankenstein than see her back in another Maleficent movie (which I don't see a point in at all but hey, money). What do you think? And, who would you cast as the Bride of Frankenstein if Jolie really is out?

I just binged the entire Game of Thrones series

Cdkwnkj

While I did enjoy it, I can't say I get all the hype or that I loved it. Still, I'll definitely see it through til the end. There's nothing really 'wrong' with it (aside from a few really weird unexplained things, like the origin of the Wall itself, and some really pointless reveals and needless twists, namely Jon Snow's secret heritage, but also that super powerful weird ghost darkness demon thing that came and went in two episodes) but I just didn't fall in love with it. Still, the amount of money HBO and co. throw at this makes it definitely stand out from most shows, with the locations, effects, costumes, sets and props all being top notch. A lot of great acting and writing too. Gotta be honest though, while in the first season I was like 'where are the cool zombie guys (white walkers)' and was disappointed by their lack of appearance for a while after the tease of them at the end of the very first episode... I gotta say, I actually preferred the show before the White Walkers really came into the plot. I found the human to human scheming and stuff to be more interesting and entertaining than this whole 'zombies are invading let's stop them' thing, though I do understand this is the climax of the show and they have to go with this path.

It would've been nice if Richard Brake had returned as the Night King though, I think his look is much cooler, more iconic and way more intimidating than the new actor's look.

I've only seen the show so don't know much about the book lore but have looked a few things up... apparently there's a rumour that's been taken to that says that Bran is Bran the Builder and all of this (which I haven't looked into, but do they ever explain in the books how in the hell they build a wall of ice like that?) but also that Bran put the 'burn them all' voice in the Mad King's head (and turned him mad) just like he did with Hodor and 'hold the door' and that 'burn them all' references burning all of the dead/the zombies rather than all of the people or something... and so I guess Bran is the one who is time travelling all in an effort to try keep the human race alive throughout the ages and stop the White Walkers, but he's not really good with his time travelling skills and goes about it in a haphazardly way lol... Not sure, just read the theory briefly but that's what it kind of seems like they're getting at.

Regardless though, the whole romance thing (at least with the twist taken into account) is just stupid. "Here's your incest baby, I'm your dad, Jon, but you're also my cousin, don't worry though I'm not some redneck, I won't have sex with my cousin, that'd just be wrong".

That Azor Ahai thing though... lol, I can't even fully comprehend that, the God of Darkness? Who I guess would be the Night King, but yet the Night King is just some Frankenstein's monster that those Earthling things made? I don't know... I feel like Jon shoving a sword into her chest, and then that sword magically turning into a fire sword (what?) and then that sword being the only sword that can kill the Night King (why?) is just a bit too farfetched (and what happened to dragon glass being able to kill them?)... plus they'd have to somehow introduce and make the whole concept of reincarnation seem legitimate in only six episodes too... then again, look what we're talking about lol

although I'm getting pretty tired of Jennifer Lawrence (still have zero interest in seeing David O Russell's Joy mostly because of her tbh) but 'mother!' definitely interests me... but not in the theatre. Apparently it's one of those art-house style movies that doesn't make much sense and benefits greatly from repeat viewings as well as discussion and Googling theories... honestly, this seems like the PERFECT movie to have been released and debuted on Netflix or something. It just doesn't seem like a theatre movie for me, even though I'm excited and intrigued... the new Netflix style format (movie debuts and everyone can see it and talk about it at once, at least that's how it seems) seems like it would've been much better suited for this one. Still, looking forward to it!

Abrams being back for Episode IX is something I'm cool with. The Force Awakens had a lot of problems with rehashing plot elements from the OT (and with that not enough imagination/ambition with its story) but I think them playing it safe was well, the safe move for the reintroduction of Star Wars. Get the old fans back on board after a bunch of them didn't take too kindly to the prequels, and be broad enough at the same time to garner a new fanbase as well. Hopefully Johnson's VIII is a much more imaginative and risk taking venture... but at the same time I hope that Abrams can match that with the final episode, rather than just playing it safe (though good) again like with The Force Awakens. I have faith in Abrams, but honestly at the same time I was hoping that 9 would have a different director, so that each film in the trilogy would be more distinct.
JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 01:59 AM Sep 13

Agreed dude but go back and look at the amazing art of the force awakens book. Abrams was taking that movie in a fresh, creative direction until Iger and Disney really hammered home the fact that they wanted it similar. Iger himself is directly responsible for the Rathgar scene since he wanted an action sequence in the middle section. Hell they barely had a script before shooting and Abrams and Kasdan thought up the entire movie on a night walk through Europe.

Pushing the film back and being in the third chapter after TFA made billions and Rian Johnson is going weird with it means he's gonna have a lot more free reign.

last thoughts on BvS

alright last comments about revisiting Batman V Superman earlier (and yes it was inspired by the DC news/rumours/leaks shitshow of recent weeks)... in short, I didn't like it as much as I did before. A lot of things could've been tightened to make it shorter and flow better, and while I liked the idea of a lot of the scenes, I think the execution of them and even the editing as well could have been better. Although on such a big movie there are so many people with their hands in the jar, I actually would put some (a lot) of this blame on Snyder, who I never really dislike ever (unlike some people nowadays who just seem to LOATHE him, which is still crazy to me). But, that's what I felt upon this viewing. And with that I'm glad Whedon is coming in. In retrospect I think that someone else should have directed the story/script of Dawn of Justice, and then have Snyder come back and do the action packed Justice League... or just have him wait and get him to do Man of Steel 2. I don't know, I think it would've been better to have just had a bit of a breather from his style and voice before going back to it. I think someone else would've been better in the captain's chair for this movie, though I think he'd be great for the big action team-up movie in JL.

Also, I realized that this Lex Luthor... is awesome? Alright, no, I still think Jesse Eisenberg is SUPER miscast as Lex Luthor, and has some really odd and kind of cringe worthy moments and mannerisms... but, he is for the most part a VERY shockingly well written villain. I mean some of his lines that Terrio wrote... a lot of them actually, are pretty cool (just check the link here: https://www.reddit.com/r/DC_Cinematic/comments/4qn943/my_new_favorite_alexander_luthor_quote/). I just think a different actor would've been MUCH better in the role... I think that's BvS' main problems... the choice of person to direct and the choice of person to play the villain (of course there are still little problems, even with some of the dialog in the script... sorry Terrio). Also I have to say one recurring problem with the DCEU is also present in this movie... the CGI quality. It's not bad, but a lot of it is surprisingly noticeable and for having some of the biggest budgets ever it shouldn't be that way. Although there are a lot of great practical effects and sets, there aren't enough. The action is too crazy and over the top too, like Batman just getting absolutely wrecked in that mech-suit... even wearing that a human would die from the impacts without a doubt, so that kind of takes you out of the film as well, not like Batman is an actual superhero or anything... I think they should've toned that down and made him get beat up in a smaller, but more effective and believable way. Besides that though in regards to the visuals again, just a lot of the smoke and fire effects just don't look as believable as they should be. It's weird, because Marvel movies just seem to have much better effects... I don't get it. Even Wonder Woman was like that... though honestly not to the same extent at all thinking back... maybe it's a Snyder thing then? Then again, Suicide Squad featured a LOT of the same weak effects (look at all the super noticeably CG Enchantress stuff and the fire and smoke effects in the rest of the movie too... weird).

If those things changed I think this could've held up as a legitimately fantastic movie... but problems are problems. Still, I do think it's quite a good movie, thanks to the story and emotional weight it manages to carry through all the bumps, and the awesomeness of Ben Affleck as Wayne/Batman... but it just could have been better.

...but it's still 100x better than Suicide Squad, lol. As for Man of Steel... while BvS is more flawed, I think it's more risk taking, emotional and effective... so because of those things I think it rises above its faults and I like it more because of that... strangely, I would actually almost say the same about it and Wonder Woman (which, unlike MoS which I found very mediocre, I thought was SUPER good). Don't get me wrong, I had an absolute blast with WW and was genuinely pleasantly surprised by it, but it felt a lot safer and more conventional and less risk taking than BvS. WW is less flawed sure, but BvS is ballsier and more imaginative I think.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the future of the DCEU. Hopefully they get organized and show us that, and hopefully JL is a nice surprise for everyone. I look forward to seeing where it goes and would be extremely excited to see Affleck's Batman in a slightly more grounded tale as told through Matt Reeves' mind and eye... and hopefully he can bring some of his effects company connections on board with him ;)

If you hear some of the early rough demo recordings of songs from the movie that he did, they're on the limited Tim Burton Music Sounds Box from a few years ago, Elfman actually did singing voices for all the characters

"Town Meeting" and "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" are the ones I recall

Cochise updated his STATUS: about 1 month ago

it's kind a weird that Danny Elfman does the score for the Fifty Shades Darker movies lol... regardless, I think him scoring Justice League now after Whedon and co kicking out Hans Zimmer's bro Junkie XL will really change the tone and style of the film... maybe it will be the surprise hit/course-correction into something a tiny bit more light and 'fun', though still serious, that they so badly seem to want. Hell, why not. I'd rather see that weird interjection changeup be done successfully and really well than see a mangled flick being pulled in a bunch of directors and producers... too many cooks kind of thing. Might as well hope for the best right?
Cochise posted a BLOG item about 1 month ago

too long for a status update so...

You know, watching Batman v Superman again the ending actually does make the 'news' that Justice League's Batman will be a lot different than the beat down, 'corrupted', death-dealing one we see in BvS... well it actually makes it so it isn't news. I guess we all kind of weren't paying close enough attention to this scene or these scenes or something lol. At least I wasn't. It's clear and dry (even in the following Lex Luthor prison scene with Batman), Superman's death snapped Batman/Bruce Wayne out of his mental state, it's almost like it brought his conscience back, after having been one of the reasons for the death of a genuinely good person (Superman)... and it made him think about all the previous people he killed who could have been genuine but just doing their job kind of thing... so I think a slightly lighter version of him in JL makes sense... but I mean, I don't think he should be completely over what got him into that mental state of insanity -- the Joker murdering Robin, and Wayne Manor burning to the ground on being blown up. That's pretty heavy stuff on his conscience, even if he's trying to be a better, more considerate 'person' lol. I hope that this means his violent, reckless behaviour can continue if he meets Joker again in the DCEU, not being able to control himself and just raging out on him, addicted to getting his revenge, putting him back in that state of blind insanity... being like the origins of the Wayne name - 'a hunter'. That would be cool to see

LelekPL at 06:41 PM Aug 26

I just can't stand behind the notion "he changed at the end so it's cool". He'll never answer for his crimes, he murdered a bunch of people and then it's cool because he learnt his lesson. I don't even have a problem with him killing the guys in the warehouse when the circumstances called for dramatic actions. That's fine and logical (even though artistically it negates the previous scene and the basic point of his character arc in the movie where he's supposed to be a changed man after his fight with Superman... but whatever). But that chase scene where he kills guys FOR TRANSPORTING A FUCKING ROCK and the intent to kill Superman THROUGHOUT the whole film because "just in case"... that's just not something you can sweep under the rug of "I learnt my lesson". That's a blatant character assassination. Not to mention it makes him completely unlikable and unrelatable in the film. There are no redeeming qualities about him, he's not even a charming billionaire, he just mops around and is angry throughout the film and the only lesson he learns at the end is "it's bad to kill people".

Weapon X
Weapon X at 08:17 PM Aug 26

The no-kill rule has been heavily exaggerated among critics calling out the death toll. Only in certain iterations has Batman ever had a straightforward "I will not kill" directive. Even the Nolan films were hazy on that because his exact words in Begins were, "I will not be an executioner," then undoubtedly racking up his own body count between the burning of the League of Shadows' citadel to the crashing of the train at the end of the movie. Batman will do what he must to stop crime, and he can't do what he does without severely injuring and possible killing a few thugs on the way.

Besides: "While Batman has occasionally killed in the comics anyway, the bigger puzzle piece here is what sort of Batman we're getting and where he's at in his journey. This is a war-hardened, jaded, grizzled, Robinless, Joker-beaten Batman. His morality and the lines between hero and criminal have blurred. That's his arc, it's the whole point. He spends the first half of the movie hunting Superman and plotting his murder. Not to beat the dead Martha horse, but that was the turning point. He looked into the mirror and saw Joe Chill (or whoever killed his parents in this continuity). At that moment, he returns to the Batman we know and love, evidenced by his sparing Lex and not even branding him." (15:25)

LelekPL at 09:47 PM Aug 26

^ I'm not sure but did you respond to my comment? Because I clearly stated I didn't have a problem with Batman killing in the warehouse. It's right there in the comment above. So the killing itself is not the issue. Read the comment again.

I also mentioned his arc and it's problems in my previous comment. In short: it's not consistent within its own message, it's incoherent within the universe (how is Joker still alive? :P ) and completely ridiculous based on his "lesson" that murder is bad. But all of it is explained above.

(Also, not bragging but I know EVERYTHING about Batman. I've already assumed you do as well. I'm just saying this so we can skip the "did you know that..." Believe me, I know his every kill in films, comics and animation and why he did it. Again, killing itself's not the issue)

Cochise updated his STATUS: about 1 month ago

where was Wonder Woman during the events of Man of Steel? What was Lex Luthor's plan after Doomsday effectively killed Superman and Batman? He couldn't control the thing at all, and there's no way they would be able to kill Doomsday without them... Doomsday would've just taken over the world and killed everything... Lex never showed any sign of being able to control the thing... it's basically just Frankenstein's monster... kinda weird. And how does he sit in that pool and somehow suddenly and instantly be able to retain knowledge from 100,000 planets or whatever it is? How does he as a human have that much brain capacity for memory? It's almost like he's Superhuman lol
Weapon X
Weapon X at 08:53 AM Aug 26

One theory is he supplied his own blood so the creature would imprint on him and just wasn't expecting it to go haywire. Maybe once the ship's computer started talking, it mentioned biological weapons and mutations or something and Lex said, "Wait, let's just explore that for now!" He had a giant new toy fall into his hands and was working out what to do with it as he went along.

Cochise
Cochise at 09:19 AM Aug 26

^ it's just weird, you would think they'd show Lex trying to control it then, like giving it an order, and just seeing it disobey or him being like 'well that didn't go as planned' and then him trying to kill Lex, rather than them jumping right to the punch and Superman jumping in. It just makes Lex as a character look dumb and not looking more than two feet in front of him, yet being such an evil genius... doesn't make him look good and threatening as much.

I do like your explanation, but it just seems like so much of a stretch that it just feels way too much like filling in a glaring pothole that should've been filled in and the first place... and could have been, resulting in a better, more satisfying film as a whole. It would've been simple too. Little moments like mentioned above, or for his knowledge gaining thing, answer it like how you propose, just have that scene a little longer (only time I think I'll say that for a scene in this overlong movie) and don't cut as soon, and get Lex to ask her or make her tell him the best creature in its DNA database to conquer Superman... and they say a Kryptonian mutant... but even then I don't know... 100,000 planets of knowledge or whatever and the best known creature/alien/species/whatever this thing knows to defeat Superman is... just another Kryptonian, a failed Kryptonian science experiment? Kinda weird

Matt Reeves has taken to Twitter to clear up some confusion... his Batman movie(s) will be apart of the DCEU. Way to go every entertainment news outlet out there. Fake news is now actually a thing lol. He only meant they'd be 'contained' or 'standalone' movies (in the same sort of way that Guardians of the Galaxy is... well, I guess in the exact same way that Wonder Woman was too). He did not give any answer to whether Ben Affleck would be his Batman or not though, but last we heard officially, 'The Batman' is a Ben Affleck Batman solo movie, which he backed down from directing but would still act in, that now has Matt Reeves attached to it to write and direct, and Affleck has said he was excited to work with Reeves. In other news, everything else DC still makes no sense.

At this point all I really want is a Ben Affleck solo Batman prequel, showing what turned him from hero to the anti-hero of sorts we see in BvS. Show how Joker killed Robin as alluded to in BvS, show Wayne Manor being destroyed. Call it Arkham Asylum and go for it. That's all I want. But it's seeming pretty unlikely what with Reeves' The Batman seemingly having nothing to do with anything, and it just seems weird that they'd have 2 solo Batman movie franchises in different universes with different actors being run at the same time. So what, are they just not going to use that juicy prequel material that was already set up? Are they going to kill Batfleck in Justice League, or are they just going to leave him dormant and not give him a solo movie (which would be even worse) even though The Batman was always meant to be Affleck's solo Batman movie (and maybe it still is?). UGH lol

The Post as in The Papers, the Tom Hanks/Spielberg movie? I'm interested, but can't say I'm that excited. Big fan of Duncan Jones, but I didn't see Mute anywhere on the release calendar unfortunately. There are a bunch of others I have interest in but for one reason or another (lack of trailers play a part) I'm just not super excited for them ATM. I only included the movies that I'm truly hyped for on the list here.
