I haven’t been on here since the news broke because it’s honertly just too painful. I’ve been browsing JoBlo since its inception and MFC for as long as it’s been around and seeing it disappear rather soon is just.. sad I guess. There’s very few places like it on the web and it was one of a kind through and through. But like most good things it fades in time.

If it weren't for Clark asking "Who's that?" as Bruce rolled up, I'd think the two of them already knew each other's secrets. The conversation is thick with "I know something you don't know" taunting.

Which was the best spy film of the year?:

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 04:20 PM Dec 08

^ That's great to hear man - I definitely want to check it out eventually as it really just looked like a "fun" flick.

To be honest Spectre was dead last out of the 3 that I saw (and it wasn't really close). I'm in the camp that thought that movie was a mess and a huge disappointment so hopefully you enjoy it - I tend to be the one of the only people on this site that feels that way haha.

4 solid choices (see, I thought I was in the minority fro really digging Spectre) but Rogue Nation just had that extra something to push it into 1st place. Can't deny the action spectacle that Cruise puts on! I'm with Cochise on MFUNCLE. It's just a fun, super-stylish (style over substance in a good way) and the whole cast seems to be having a blast

"Across 3 trailers and 13 tv spots The Force Awakens has shown less than six minutes of footage from the two hour and sixteen minute film a person involved in the campaign said. "That's extremely low," said a marketing executive at s rival studio. "Twelve to fifteen minutes is the average'". Well then, I guess they did stick to their guns and are showing as blatantly little as possible. Excellent.

The familiarity of The Force Awakens?

Image

So I kinda wanna talk about something in here regarding The Force Awakens and expectations that I've read on the internet recently. I'm seeing a lot of chatter that the story beats and character relationships will harken back to A New Hope and be a sort of rehash of that movie in a lot of ways. It'll be safe and familiar and won't take too many risks while still being an incredibly fun and fast paced movie. I think it was Mike from RLM who said "it'll be a movie that has a 92% on rottentomatoes but won't set the world on fire with its story"... and that's perfectly fine to me. In fact I would argue that's probably the only way they can relaunch this franchise right now. After the colossal failure of the prequels in the eyes of the fandom wouldn't you want to map out a safer and familiar reintroduction to that Galaxy far far away in order to get everyone's feet wet again? I'm not saying it has to take the easy way out when it comes to every single story beat but for my money this is the optimal way to go about The Force Awakens. It's also what JJ Abrams is best at (take Star Trek 2009 for example - he had a parallel universe to play in and relied on a lot of the familiar character tropes with a fresh coat of paint that was wildly successful and exciting). It's not this movie but rather the sequel (or Episode 8) that should be the one where you take the risks and go out on a limb after you've established a central universe again.

I don't know, this is mostly rambling and we'll have no idea what the outcome of this movie will be until December 17th but if it does go down this way I'd almost prefer it to the alternate route. I want an exhilarating space adventure that fits the checklist of the original trilogy while giving me fleshed out new characters to root for and fall in love with. I'm NOT SAYING I JUST WANT A REHASH OF A NEW HOPE AT ALL. I'm saying a film that follows parallels from A New Hope might be an ideal way to handle Rey, Finn and Poe's introductions. Marvel proved that you don't have to reinvent the wheel with your scripts as long as you have characters on screen that audiences will follow to the end of the earth. They're who these movies are about first and foremost and why the beating heart of the MCU is so goddamn strong. I don't think it's a coincidence that they're both now under the same Disney umbrella either. 9 days and counting I think it is now?

I think it's a safe bet that JJ, Kathleen Kennedy and LucasFilm overall are not going to 'rehash' that first movie. I think it's brilliant that they are bringing back the characters we love from that first trilogy to 'kick-start' this next trilogy. Will there be comparisons to those first 3 movies? Undoubtedly. I mean, there has to be but I don't think it will go into overkill territory.
Bottom line is this: Whatever the movie turns out to be, there will be some people that will complain it's too much like the original trilogy while other people will complain that it's too new and different.
For me personally, I just want Episode VII to be at the very least on par with those original films. All signs indicate that that's what we're going to get. *fingers crossed*

Why would Ron Howard go through all the trouble of filming In the Heart of the Sea on the ocean when they digitalized and color corrected everything to shit in post production so it looks like it was filmed in a studio?
Glinda
Glinda at 02:16 PM Dec 07

That is weird and doesn't make any sense at all. Insecurity must have taken hold of Ron.
