Reading this article, you'd almost think, I don't know, that movies just aren't as good these days? :roll:
This and the outrageous costs associated with it.

Re: Ron Howard Named New Director of HAN SOLO

I'm a fan of Powell so I like that and especially over the likes of any number of other people they might have brought in.

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI - "He's Not My Luke Skywalker"

I definitely can see the argument where Hamill going off the way he did wasn't the most professional thing to do in the world by a mile but honestly? I think the Mouse has been reaching out in some form of fashion with the bizarre degree of backtracks and outright flip flops I've seen. I can't prove...

Sorry if repeat here. I've not been able to keep up with the discussion as well as I would have liked. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZlw64mI228 Watch this and listen to it. This isn't edited or doctored video. No acting by Hamill, either. This is him before and after he saw the movie and his visc...

Re: Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK Warp Speeds to Pre-Production & HARD "R" RATING

I understand the balance but Star Trek was and is supposed to be something for "everybody." It could handle complex and "adult" issues in a manner that was approach for all ages and so forth. I know family friendly is a phrase that has gotten tarnished to become synonymous with kiddie fare these day...

Re: Quentin Tarantino's STAR TREK Warp Speeds to Pre-Production & HARD "R" RATING

I hereby retract my tentative positive sentiment in my previous post as well if that's anything to go by. That's not what it's about and how it's supposed to be. For me? Trek has been dead for a while. My Trek anyways. I'm sorry it's had to drag out like this and I really hope this project just neve...

Re: Disney Buying Fox? Ugh

It's too big and yet regardless of the political window dressing I see more and more of these super conglomerates all over the place and in various businesses and fields.

Technocracy.

Re: Amazon Pays $200 Mil for Tolkien TV Series

^^ Spot on, Paul. I can't remember and if I ever feel like it I'll have to go looking for it but how did Jackson land such a huge project like the LOTR films coming off a "ho-hum" resume like had prior to it? Anyways... we'll see what Amazon can do with this. LOTR meets Game of Thrones does nothing ...

Re: Amazon Pays $200 Mil for Tolkien TV Series

I found the LOTR films to be extremely moving and well done. ROTK went on too long though...he dragged out the Mount Doom sequence to the point where now, when I watch it, I get impatient. I still love Howard Shore's scores. THE HOBBIT was where Jackson went too far for me - should have been no mor...
