Came here to say the same thing. I don’t need another hour of exciting Batman action taken away to establish who he is and where he came from. Batman is not an unknown quantity. Three different film universes, several animated films, several television series, and 80 years of comic books have made us all very familiar Read more

Christopher Nolan is so frickin’ polarizing, and I can’t decide which side to pick! His critics are such douchebags, but the people who kneel before his altar are incredibly silly. I say he’s a very good filmmaker, and- at a minimum- one of the last reliable creators of original film content (Dark Knight trilogy Read more

Absolutely. Lucas is probably the greatest world builder and ideas man in the history of cinema. THe problem with the prequels was never the story or the cast or the settings. It was always his inability to put his ideas into a coherent script with good dialogue, his horrible direction and the impact it had on the Read more

Wow.  What a horrible month of releases.  I mean Back to the Future is a nice addition, but like any decent human being, I already own it.  This may be the weakest month I’ve seen since we started keeping track of these kinds of things.

Is Moana *THE* most underrated Disney movie or what? Maybe even most underrated animated movie full stop. It’s just so great from start to finish. I can’t really think of any weaknesses.

I just posted a longer version of this that is pending approval. I’ve been exercising nearly my entire life, but never saw the results I’m now seeing since switching to heavy lifting, focusing on the Big 5 as you call it. I had NEVER done squats or deadlifts because I had joint pain (probably from all the useless Read more

Ha!  I watched the entire first season of The Witcher while walking on the treadmill at the gym.  Took a while (I go about 15-20 minutes per session), but it definitely helps the time move quicker than music for me.

I’m all in on a Jar-Jar redemption story, if for no other reason than to make it up to Ahmed Best for all the abuse he took. I completely trust Chow, Favreau and Filoni can make it happen.

Was coming to post the same thing. Saw it this weekend and thought it was really good, but not that special. The only thing really special about it is Phoenix. He completely carries the film. Not sure why Phillips gets a director nod or screenplay nod, as the whole film is buoyed by Phoenix to a degree I can’t Read more

This doesn’t really have Simon Kinberg’s stain on it, as he was only a producer on the film similar to Deadpool, and was too busy making Dark Phoenix as terrible as possible, so these are all good signs.

Congratulations on being smarter than everyone, I guess? After first watch, I was utterly confused until about the 4th or 5th episode to really get a comfortable sense of time in the different plot lines. Most of the indicators in the early episodes were subtle and they were still in world-building mode at that point Read more

I agree 100%. With the prequels, the problem wasn’t the story. The problem was the awful dialogue, the wooden acting (mostly caused by Lucas’s shortcomings as a director) and drastic overuse of CGI. Lucas’s overall story was arc and plots were excellent, even if there were some things that didn’t come out right (Padme Read more

This movie was a fun watch, but story-wise, it’s a fucking mess and a total disaster for the saga. I just don’t know where to begin, but this post and the 84 questions post on The Ringer are good places to start, as well as the latest episode of The Watch. Read more
