Yeah, I thought of Best Animated Picture immediately too. Which is basically just “Disney/Pixar plus whatever else the studios threw at us.”
Hadn’t even thought of that but you might be right (in practical, if not literal terms). Sort of like how Best Animated Film is in practice “Best Disney/Pixar Film.”
Yeah, as much as I want to (and do) blame the Academy for becoming ossified and elitist in their views as Hollywood changes, the truth also is that audiences just aren’t as interested in movies as movies as they used to be. We turn out for the big tentpoles and not much else unless you’re a real lover of cinematic art.
Just a post for clicks? Maybe not:
Except apparently India’s government censored the line. They may not consider it as harmless as you do.
Lots of people are saying this is a made-up story for clicks. But it’s worth noting that the article says that India censored the line in question. I think that indicates that not everyone is as blase about it as folks in the comments seem to be.
Okay, I know the comic isn’t even remotely historical but how can Alexander the Great be in a *prequel* when he was born over a hundred years later?
It sounds like this is very similar to the process behind 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was similarly composed as a novel and screenplay simultaneously and, as in this case, was formed from an earlier germ of an idea by the author of the novel version. Very interesting though.
It’s probably a pretty decent approximation. Though Egypt was diverse and so featured a wide variety of phenotypes most likely. But from my understanding the movie’s a lot closer than most.
Moore’s own legacy with scifi, beyond the rebooted Battlestar, also includes being a key part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager.
I mean they also have an Ant-Man parody so it sort of seems like they just enjoy lampooning comics in general. But doing some more research it does seem like Hammer’s a huge fan of Strange.
I mean I do. Stuff like Atomic Blonde or Get Out is why I enjoy going to the movies. I can see fun easy entertainment any time. But you may have also have a point.
Oh god a Doctor Strange film handled by Doc Hammer would be amazing. I hadn’t even considered that before.
DS9 was controversial when it first came out specifically because it wasn’t about a trek through the stars. It proved them wrong. The alien franchise has yet to prove that it can sustain itself when not focusing on the aliens, as both Prometheus and Covenant have demonstrated.
Star Trek is about a trek through the stars. Star Wars is about a war amongst the stars. And Alien, is about an alien.

The more I hear “what is Alien without the alien?” the more I feel like people are forgetting what the movies are actually about. The alien is the hook, but it’s not the point. It’s like thinking Star Trek is about Klingons or Star Wars is about the Sith. The stories can be more than that and they should if they want…
Do it Ridley. It’s obvious you’re not as interested in the aliens as exploring AI and concepts of creation and destruction. So do that.
If they’d done it ten years ago probably yes. But The Matrix is kind of out of vogue with modern pop culture at this point. A lot of young audiences probably haven’t even ever seen the movie.
I have not. And I’m not precisely an expert. But here’s what I’ll say.
