The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. Based on this criteria the most sensible and obvious choice of director would be none other than the two-time Fangoria Chainsaw Award winner and 2009 Eyegore Awards recipient of the coveted Filmmaker of the Year award: Jokes aside, I would second Stanley Kubrick, or Alfonso Cuarón, but I will also add in David Fincher.
  2. Event Horizon Just Cause Boyz n the Hood Also going to add Deep Cover, which is more of a starring role than the others mentioned.
  3. Cosmic Odyssey: This was a lot of fun and a great read! This doesn't seem to be a story that is talked about a lot, but I found it really enjoyable. I could definitely see the inspiration this had on the Justice League episode "Twilight". Final Crisis: Reading this felt like I was stuck in a classroom taking a test and failing miserably. I was able to follow the story well-enough, but at times it genuinely felt like pages and/or important context were missing. Perhaps I am too casual a comic reader for this one, but I found no enjoyment from it. Also, some of the dialogue was a little much. I am thinking specifically about Dan Turpin saying "Who knew the sound of breath whistling through smashed cartilage could be such a turn-on?"
  4. Zack Snyder's Justice League I might be in the minority on this site, but I surprisingly really enjoyed this. I really didn't think I would as I was not a fan of BvS, but this felt like a natural continuation as well as a vast improvement. It is not perfect and if you aren't a fan of Zack Snyder's directing this will do nothing to change your mind, but I came away from this having had a really great time. Everything that worked for me about the theatrical cut is still here, and the things that didn't are gone. The four hours didn't bother me at all, given that this is separated into chapters and felt more like a well made mini-series. Even still, it just reminded me of watching Ben-Hur, Lawrence of Arabia, or the Ten Commandments with my parents growing up, or LOTR with friends. Given that this was finalized for streaming and you can pause anytime I don't have an issue with the length. More scenes of my favourite heroes interacting - sure, why not? On a final note, it was nice to see that so many roles of POC that were significantly diminished or removed from the theatrical cut were restored. I can't mark this as a spoiler for whatever reason so proceed at your own risk, but off the top of my head these are the characters removed/diminished in the theatrical cut that stood out: Ryan Choi (completely removed) Cyborg Backstory (almost entirely removed) Silas Stone (almost entirely removed) Elinor Stone (completely removed) Waitress in Cyborg Backstory (completely removed) Iris West (completely removed) I can understand why many of these were axed if they were attempting to make a 2 hour runtime, but c'mon - it is not a good look.
  5. Another great episode guys! Regarding John Hughes, Molly Ringwald wrote a pretty insightful article a few years ago entitled What About “The Breakfast Club”? that is worth a read. It doesn't delve into the issues Pandy raised with Mr. Mom, but has some good criticisms of his other work and practices. (https://www.newyorker.com/culture/personal-history/what-about-the-breakfast-club-molly-ringwald-metoo-john-hughes-pretty-in-pink) Also, Muppet and Rocky themed Flickchart Forums are a great idea and I would love to hear them.
  6. Goldmember - easily. It may not be as good as either of its predecessors, but it's not awful, and there are some funny bits in there.
  7. Pretty Woman My Best Friend's Wedding Eat, Pray, Love
  8. Fair enough, I was just surprised to not hear it mentioned at all, as it was my big takeaway from the film. Thanks for the response! I had never seen a Rob Zombie film prior to his two Halloweens, so I think I will call it quits while I am ahead.
  9. So, I just finished watching all of the Halloween movies for the first time this October, in addition to watching the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street films. I really enjoyed watching through this franchise for the first time (more than the other two), and this episode was a great treat at the end. My ranking is fairly similar to the averaged out ranking, with some minor variables. Halloween 1978 Halloween (2018) Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) Halloween II (1981) Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) Halloween III: The Season of the Witch (1982) Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) Halloween (2007) (*See Below*) Halloween: Resurrection (2002) Halloween II (2009) I had a quick question regarding Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007). I know it has been a while, but do you recall what cut you guys watched? I sat down and watched the Director's Cut (I believe) which had a pretty significant alteration regarding Michael's escape scene. In one version of the film, he is being escorted by several Guards / Officers, who he brutally kills to escape. In the version I saw, the hill-billy new Security Guard brings one of his friends to the institution late at night, and goes into Michael's cell to rape a female inmate in front of Michael, to taunt him... I guess (?). Michael remains unmoved until one of the men grabs one of Michael's masks, at which point he murders them. This scene did not come up at all during the aired discussion, so I was just curious to see what version you all watched. The scene in question went on for several minutes (but what felt like an eternity), and in my opinion, was absolutely disgusting, unnecessary, and idiotic. I do not understand why this scene was put to film or what purpose it served. It felt so disgusting to watch, and it really coloured my opinion regarding the rest of the film, knocking it down several positions. Perhaps I am being overly sensitive, but it has been bothering me ever since I watched it, and it was bothering me that it went unmentioned in the episode, though I am assuming it was because of a difference in Cuts.
  10. Yikes, thats not a good look. Thanks for the info - I had no idea. I'm hopeful that the described actions were those of a very small, toxic faction, that doesn't represent the entirety, similar to the toxic (and racist) Star Wars fans that surface every few years to spread hate and harass. But still, there is no excuse for that behaviour. I'll amend here my previous comment to note that I am happy that all those that campaigned or were hoping to see the Snyder Cut and were respectful during the process will be able to see it. Similarly, I'm happy for my friends and those that were involved in the original principal photography and had their work scrapped, altered or otherwise removed, who will now get to see their work completed.
  11. Wow. He is absolutely brutal - I love it. This looks excellent! Also, Colin Farrell looks unrecognizable. Reeves noted in the panel that the story revolves around a murder mystery structure as a way to introduce a number of notable rogues, which I think is a great approach, especially considering HBO and Reeves are producing a GCPD tie-in show. The Gotham shown here is one I am excited to see more of!
  12. Maybe I am out of the loop, but what was the "shitty" behaviour in this situation, aside from complaining and spamming the ever loving hell out of every forum and comment section with #ReleaseTheSnyderCut or complaints about the theatrical cut? Not trying to argue or disagree, I am just genuinely curious if I missed something, since I wasn't paying much attention to this "movement" early on. It seemed to me that fans were pouring their own money into advertising and donations.
  13. Say what you will about Snyder's films, but the fact we are here is truly a testament to the dedication of the fans and supporters. I never thought this would come to be, but I am happy for all those that campaigned and clamoured for this. I really enjoyed Man of Steel, have mixed feelings about BvS, and didn't overly enjoy the theatrical cut of Justice League, so I will be curious to watch this and see how I feel about it, as well as see how Snyder intended it to be. Also, in the panel it was announced the film will initially be split up into four hour-long instalments, and then later available as one large film.
  14. I don't care what you cover, so long as you cover 'Birdman'. In my opinion, that is a MUST. Aside from that, discussions about 'Spotlight', 'Mr. Mom' or 'Pacific Heights' would all be good.
