Thread: Movies that don't deserve their own thread

    Default Movies that don't deserve their own thread

    Well, we don't really have a generic movie thread and I can't think of anywhere else to put this, so.... in the tradition of the manga section's "Theories That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread"....

    First trailer for the movie Alpha, from July 2017.

    Dramatic action flik, some blood and violence, intense and clearly going for that now rare PG-13 market.

    And now, trailer two from June 2018 a year later.

    DIfferent music, different tone, much more lighthearted and kid friendly.

    Methinks there's been some reshoots or heavy re-editing to this film.

    (Doesn't matter, dog is going to die at the end and depress me so I'm not going to see it anyway. (But you'll be uplifted because he had cubs!)

    Still, interesting to see such a different pair of trailers. I haven't seen something this jarring since Racing Stripes... where the original trailer just looked like a cheesy old Disney feel good movie, and the second added in CG taking flies that rapped, one of them voiced by David Spade.

    I can't wait to watch the remastered version of Ozu's movies. They'll all come out in a month

    Anyway, this movie looks great too

    Also, wouldn't it be better to just make one thread about movies ? It has always been hard to talk about movies on this forum, and now we have one thread for "movies we saw", "movies that aren't famous enough" and this one.

    And Sicario 2 is shit as expected. It's so dumb, it's a mix of AmericanAssassin and BladeRunner. The first one showed how people were corrupted, the second one is an action packed movie about very very very dumb stuff. The characters are all so retarded. At least Benicio Del Toro is charismatic

    I have to watch the Incredibles 2 now

    Today I saw "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" in theaters. I had to drive 10 miles out cause my local theater replaced it with "Antman and the Wasp." After a bad morning and a stressful drive, I was annoyed and bitter. After watching this, my mood changed and I feel better about life in general. It a wonderful film and I hope to watch again on DVD.

    It featured many powerful scenes, though one sad one stood out to me:
    I was nearly in tears during the scene near his death, with the "God hates America" protestors. Seeing those kids among a group of adults holding "God hates Fags" signs is heartbreaking. The man did great work his entire life, and I wish more people took after him.

    One negative note, somewhat unrelated since it's only about one clip in the movie:
    Fuck you Brian Kilmeade. I could say this any day of the week, but I forgot about his little "did Mister Rogers ruins a generation episode. Idiot.

    So this is only the second film by director Panos Cosmatos. Saw his first film Beyond the Black Rainbow and I can see he brings alot of what he did there over here. The way he uses the audio and visuals to create a compelling sense of atmosphere. Putting his characters into strange deeply traumatic circumstances. While Mandy looks to be a great deal more action oriented, Beyond the Black Rainbow was not shy about the violence it had either. All welcome carryovers, but I look forward to seeing in what ways this film will distinguish itself from what came before.

    How did I miss that there was a Robin Hood movie coming out this year?

    I dunno it feels almost too . . . . modern? I feel like it's so hard to do Robin Hood right. Unless you're Errol Flynn or Disney it seems so weird. Prince of Thieves version had everything going for it really well except for the HUGE mistake of casting Kevin Costner to play Robin. Men in Tights is a parody. The Ridley Scott version just sucked. Everything else is just forgotten about.
