  1. I'll say that Mallrats stands up better than a lot of Smith's other films because it's not trying to be anything else. It's a dumb sex comedy. The male characters get called on their flaws. It has a Stan Lee cameo before he became cool. It might also be the amount of physical humor compared to Smith's other films, leading it to not always be as talky.
  2. Disney has pushed back basically their entire release schedule which also means that Wandavision is going to be the only MCU representation in 2020.
  3. It is a prequel so that's still a possibility.
  4. John Cena's character in Suicide Squad, Peacemaker, is getting a spin-off series on HBO Max. James Gunn is writing and directing.
  5. I will say at this point, I'm not surprised to see another DC Show bow out. The CW's schedule is starting to get a little overstuffed. I'm sure having another Kryptonian show on the schedule didn't make this less difficult of a decision.
  6. The biggest problem is that in the 8 Years between the release of Silence The Film and Hannibal The Novel is that Hannibal Lecter had become a meme. I was a kid who never saw Silence and even I knew where the Fava Beans line came from. The Simpsons could randomly makes a joke and it made sense. Hannibal in the Novel had to reflect Hannibal in the movie now so we got a caricature of Anthony Hopkins playing a version of a character from a novel. So, when Hannibal the Movie comes out, we have Anthony Hopkins literally playing an adaptation of a caricature of himself. It's obvious that he's in thi
  7. Tatiana Maslany is playing She-Hulk in the Disney+ Series.
  8. The Old Guard: Charlize Theron became one of best action stars of the 21st century so gradually that I didn't really notice it until now. Its just stunning that she can slide out of a film about immortal soldiers to playing Megyn Kelly. Also, bravo for having an action film featuring a prominent and badass gay couple! I really hope they get a sequel. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War: If I'm being 100% honest: I didn't much care for this movie. Some of the voice acting is very strong but so much of the film was needlessly violent that it took me out of it and the ending is a total cop-ou
  9. Wet Hot American Summer: The cast in this one is just stacked. Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, etc. It's just a funny parody of Camp Films from the 80s and works so well. D2: The Mighty Ducks: It's just a fun, I've had a couple of drinks and want to enjoy something movie. The Babysitter: Killer Queen: Not quite as good as the original and it makes the timeline a little wonky but still some good kills and some good acting. Scream: I was really drunk and riding the high from Neve having signed to be in Scream 5 so yeah. Films: 117 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 2 Mst3k/R
  10. The Thing is an easy choice. I'm going to lean toward Alien on the other but just barely.
  11. Yu-Gi-Oh: The Movie: Is it good? Oh fuck, no. Is it fun? Kinda, yeah. Hot Fuzz: Act 3 of the film is a practically perfect action film. Everything else is great but damn if the last half hour isn't fucking amazing! The Babysitter: It's a fun horror comedy, kinda looking forward to the sequel later this week. Doctor Strange: Still a visually interesting Marvel film. Still mostly uninteresting on the whole though. Films: 114 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  12. Scott Pilgrim vs The World: One of my favorite films. It's always a fun watch.I won't call it Edgar Wright's best film (Almost definitely Hot Fuzz) but it's pretty far up there. And I just realized that Edgar Wright hasn't come up on Flickchart Forum yet. Edited to add: Though, now that I look at it, unless you include Written by credits, there's really only six films. So, maybe that's why. Could have sworn he had done more. Gosford Park: Robert Altman is the only film maker I can think of who can create a film with like 20 characters, each with their own plots, and dialogue tha
  13. https://news.sky.com/story/black-panther-star-chadwick-boseman-dies-after-colon-cancer-battle-12058931 Seriously, fuck.
  14. Y'know, maybe it's the fact that I'm drunk, maybe it's the song choice, maybe it's how unfinished the visual effects look but I don't think I have laughed this much in months. Zack Snyder's Justice League is already comedy of the year! It's definitely better than Darkseid Gets Hit With Football In Groin!
  15. Oh yeah, I remember how harsh and serious the Act 1 climax through Act 2 portion of the first film was. It almost felt like the cartoonishness of 2 was a studio reaction how real 1 got. 3 was filmed for less than 2 but more than 1 but when you take into account that they used a different production studio for the Turtles and they're also paying to shoot on location in... Oregon? Really? Okay but it's still different than shooting on a set like most of 2 was.
  16. "Reed Richards is Elastic, Sue can fade from sight, Johnny is the Human Torch, The Thing just loves to fight." Poetry those lyrics.
  17. Honestly? As a kid that grew up with Reading Rainbow and would likely react like Troy if I ever met LeVar Burton, Geordi staying largely chaste doesn't bother me as much as it should considering how much everyone else in this and further Trek series get down.
  18. The Winter Soldier is nearly flawless. It has one of the best action sequences in the entire MCU (The elevator Scene). On top of that, it's got a story that keeps on working with engaging performances all around. It also has something: One of the only times that I think Black Widow actually works as a character. She gets to do the Spy thing while being able to own the scenes she's in. She's usually just Action Chick in most of the other films and here, she gets to do her thing. First Avenger is a fine movie but it just doesn't do as much for me sadly.
  19. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze: Not as bad as #3 but still has some problems. The timeline is kinda wonky. Can Ninja Rap be Vanilla Ice's legacy? Pinocchio and The Emperor of the Night: Filmation was and always will be garbage. This was decidedly not good, a way of trying to cashgrab off Disney with a story about Pinocchio fighting The Devil. Films: 107 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  20. Imagine a world where John Krasinski or Chace Crawford became Captain America. What a strange, horrible potential world.
  21. I have been enjoying this art series so much.
  22. I'm voting for Guardians. I love Captain America but Guardians just felt so new and different and that feeling holds up over repeated feelings. It's a fun film, visually creative, and has so many great set pieces. In a lot of ways, this is also where Marvel's "Jokes at points that kind of kill the tension" problem starts but ehh. It does also have a villain problem, whether that's Ronan being kind of bland or the fact that Thanos who Marvel is trying to sell as a big bad totally gets jobbed by Ronan. Still, it's a great movie. I love Thor:Ragnarok more than some but yeah, this is a two ho
  23. Donovan convinced me here because it was a coinflip between Winter Soldier and Black Panther. Endgame was never in the running. Just too many problems with how it uses it's runtime. For me, this is what decides who wins the bracket for me.
