  1. It certainly wasn't exciting locations to shoot at.
  2. I haven't watched Rise of Skywalker. Maybe I'll check out Killing Eve though.
  3. Yesterday I went to the cinema for the first time in over two years. That time I saw John Wick 3, this time I saw The Last Duel. It was great and I pretty much agree what everyone else has written about it. Good acting all around, I don't think I've seen Jodie Comer in anything else before this but she was absolutely fantastic. I appreciated the subtle differences in characterization depending on the viewpoint. Titular duel also was a solid piece of movie fight to, brutal and hard hitting, really driving home how much of tank you could be in full armour. Although I do wonder whose idea it was to style Affleck like was the year 1999 and he was fronting a nu-metal band.
  4. I have not seen any of them or really heard much about them at all.
  5. I am cautiously optimistic for this, the original Scream is one of my favourite movies and the whole series is near an dear to my heart (even the third one I guess), so I hope this one can live up to the previous ones.
  6. Do you mean Black Christmas? Edit: And I agree that that is a fucking fantastic movie.
  7. Apparently they're giving Resident Evil another go.
  8. I hate the fact that I'm probably going to watch this, because that looks bad. At least it's on Netflix so I can just blow through it in a couple of days instead watching it on a weekly basis. That looks like a fan film.
  9. I remember not being able to log in for the first two - three days. Error 37, fun times.
  10. I watched the new Candyman yesterday. I had pretty high hopes but ended up being really disappointed. It was mediocre movie at best and it pales in comparison to the original. There's definitely some stuff to like, it's is well acted and looks great, with great cinematography and a lot of style. And it starts out great but can not sustain that trough out the runtime. As someone who thinks like a lot of movies are way longer than they need to be nowadays, this is a movie that is on the opposite end. It really should have been at least 20 - 30 minutes longer and it feels like there must have been a lot of material that was left on the cutting room floor. They clearly knew what they wanted to do and what they wanted to say with the movie, but it feels like they just ended up skipping a lot of steps to get the story to where they wanted it to go. As a result it just feels rushed and poorly paced. Some scenes were just really random, like flashback with the father of one of the principal characters and the scene with the high school girls in the restroom. Both of them felt really out of place and like they didn't really bring much to the movie at all. Another problem that this movie, that it has in common with a lot of other horror movies (especially slashers), is that I just don't care about a lot of the characters. If I actually care about the characters that become the victims in a horror movie it becomes so much more effective and scary. In this movie I don't care about any of the victims because they are barely characters at all, they're just bodies for the mayhem. Meanwhile the characters I actually care about are almost never in any real danger, which isn't very scary at all. The original Candyman has a great atmosphere, it is tense, unsettling and genuinely creepy as fuck. And it managed to balance being a movie with something to say with being a great and scary horror movie. Candyman 2021 does not manage that balance and get to caught up in trying to say what it wants to say to be an effective horror movie.
  11. Damn that hurts. Norm had the best delivery in comedy. Cancer can fuck right off. RIP
  12. Didn't Jim Starlin make more money from KGBeast appearing as a henchman i Batman v Superman than he did for Thanos appearing in the MCU
  13. Oh, it really is The Matrix: Rehased.
  14. Aw that's fucking terrible. He was an amazing actor and Omar is probably one of the greatest characters on television ever. RIP
  15. You play a Native American (well half but raised among them) in Assassins Creed 3.
  16. I'm not feeling that trailer at all. The characters remind me of Watch Dogs 2 and not in a good way.
  17. That's terrible news. So sad. I always liked WKUK and Trevor Moore was a really funny guy. RIP
