There will be hot takes and strong opinions regarding the Lord and Miller firing but one quote to me is the most important: "The creative clash, according to one insider, also came down to differences in understanding the character of Han Solo. “People need to understand that Han Solo is not a comedic personality. He’s sarcastic and selfish,” said that source. The friction was felt almost immediately when the movie began shooting in February, sources say, but the directors always thought it could be worked through. Kennedy, the producer and head of Lucasfilm, decided to back Kasdan, who shaped much of Solo’s character in Empire and ‪Return of the Jedi and who had a specific tone in mind for the new movie." The character of Han Solo is the single most important part of a "Han solo" movie and the one that matters most.

well..hey its true, Solo isn't a funny person...sarcasm and selfishness with some warmth..is who he is. I trust Kennedy..without her the Star Wars franchise wouldn't be the same.

I'm not worried.

Like Slick Nick said, I'd trust Kennedy. She's the hand that guides Star Wars. So far, she's 2 wins and 0 losses.

Jessica Chastain the villain in a new X-Men movie?
JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 15 days ago

It continues to amaze me that Marvel will spend 400,000 hours finding a way to work a cameo into 6 different movies but when it comes to their movie posters they slap together some garbage looking photoshop. Black Panther's first poster is CGI fuckery that's insulting my eyeballs. Dear god have some respect for your damn posters.

They need to get Paul Shipper or somebody on a retainer and have all their promo artwork done through them. After the glory of the GoTG2 poster campaign only to regress to the dreck we've seen lately is just... UGH, makes me wanna jab someone in the eye with my Wacom stylus.

God do I hope Justice League is more Wonder Woman and less Batman v Superman. I know the project went trough massive changes, big reshoots and now Whedon is helping to finish it but WW made me so optimistic. Just DONT SUCK

The Leftovers finished as a profound series that was parts deeply personal, balls to the wall insane, ambitious and of course rooted in death and religion. It was very much a case study in dealing with grief and how to manage your life when a loved one passes. Recommended

I'm still tackling 100 others shows but I got Leftovers on the list, from everything I'll probably bump it up a few spots so I can see it sooner.

Also Wonder Woman's little battalion of heroes was what the Howling Commandos wish they could've been. All unique, all fleshed out juuust enough to make them feel real, all genuine and felt like real people.

Controversial(?) opinion: I would take Wonder Woman over 95% of the flavor of the week Marvel movies we've gotten over the years
cerealkiller182
cerealkiller182 at 10:07 AM Jun 05

I don't think its much different. What it does it does well, but what it does well is still just generic superhero fiction, which is not a criticism. I'm into it. A lot of what they switched up was superficial (which also sounds like a criticism), aesthetically WWI worked really well. And it did sincerity really well

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 10:12 AM Jun 05

^ Right but it had a distinct, unique direction that helped it set itself aside from the rest of the pack. The visual style, the old timey WWI photograph color grading in the Steve Trevor escape scene, the renaissance painting look of the opening story. It all felt bold and individualistic.

Compare that with something like Ant-Man which I enjoyed but is very much a flavor of the week movie. Even The Avengers is as plain looking visually as anything I've seen on the big screen.

Guardians is really the only Marvel movie that feels like its own film in the MCU canon. I like the MCU flicks but they're all very samey. It works for them (clearly) and that's fine but give me this any day.

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 21 days ago

Wonder Woman was so delightful, so genuine and so goddamn good that I might spend the coin to see it again on Sunday. Go out and see this movie. It's the best the comic book subgenre has seen in a LONG time.

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 22 days ago

Wonder Woman is a joyous slice of blockbuster filmmaking with a heroine who's exactly what our silver screen heroes should strive to be. Tons of heart, electric chemistry and moments of standing up to evil for the sole reason of it being the right thing to do. Equal parts fierce and elegant, this is the superhero movie for this moment. This is the hero for our time.

Glad to hear that. Especially from you, JL. You've been tough on the DCEU (and you've justified your reasoning) up to this point, so for you to enjoy WW, that is definitely a good sign. A female lead in a superhero film is pretty groundbreaking for this era in the genre and I'm glad that this one hasn't disappointed.

Wow! No Tales at #2? Haven't seen it yet but it just seems to be so much bad word-of-mouth. Nice to see it's not as bad as most seem to think.

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 01:36 PM May 31

@ericodarko - Yeah I'm honestly not sure why the word of mouth is so bad on this flick, especially since it's miles better than the 4th one and imo the tightest movie since the first. I think it's part Pirates fatigue and the fact that some of it can feel stale (jack sparrow is now the least interesting aspect).

For my money it's a fun, easygoing summer blockbuster with a little more heart than I was expecting. I had a good time

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 24 days ago

Maybe it's because I had the lowest of low expectations, maybe it's because I just watched the 4th one this weekend which was a mundane, boring slog of a flick or maybe it was because I saw it in an empty theater on a Tuesday night but I was pleasantly surprised with Pirates 5.

I found it suprisingly emotional, and really liked the fact that they connected it to the original trilogy.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales



Pirates-of-the-caribbean-dead-men-tell-no-tales-poster

Directed by: Espen Sandberg
Written by: Jeff Nathanson
Cast: Johnny Depp, Kaya Scodelario, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush
Studio: Walt Disney
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot: There's ANOTHER Pirates movie?

Review:

So this weekend I tried to finally sit down and get through the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie for the third time. I tried twice before and fell asleep both times due to the staleness of what was happening on screen and guess what? I fell asleep again. It took me three viewing blocks to finally finish the entire thing and boring doesn't even begin to sum it up. This was movie ambien...[more]...

I think I may give this one a shot when it comes to Netflix. You address some issues I had with the sequels. One of the things I hated about two and three is that Will and Elizabeth go on about how they can't trust Jack yet Will was willing to risk everything to save Jack. That never made much sense to me. The double-crossings always hurt my head, it seemed it further bloated movies that were already quite large. The first movie which is one of my absolute favorites, it had a simple adventure plot line in the vein of Indiana Jones. The sequels had storylines that were loaded with too many subplots and got off on too many tangents. I also hated that the sequels (especially two and three) got so damn grim. It really took the fun factor away in some parts.

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 01:38 PM May 31

^ I think you might enjoy this with a rental then. It's far less grim and more honest and open about the fact that it's a fun blockbuster.
