    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    As far as November being a movie showing month - a LOT can happen between now and then, including new therapies being developed that can help us get back to normalcy sooner. Not a vaccine of course, that would be too soon. They are working hard on this. Be hopeful. :)

    Wonder Woman 1984 (August 14, 2020)

    Yeah, there's no way the WB is gonna let the WW go straight to VOD ASAP. That would not be A-OK.

    Black Widow (2020)

    I seriously wonder about how many people will feel comfortable going to a jam packed theater after being in isolation for a period of time and effectively being trained that crowds are potentially deadly for your health. Such strange times.

    Universal Plans to Release its 2020 Theatrical Slate Day and Date to Streaming

    They aren't afraid of increased piracy from this sort of model?

    Wonder Woman 1984 (August 14, 2020)

    'Coming Soon' - interesting.

    Black Widow (2020)

    That feels different to me, but sure it's an apt comparison. I could probably articulate a number of reasons, but I don't think I'd do a very good job of it. It feels very different though. Solo by Disney's metrics underperformed, and BW might as well, but I hope not. It would be a shame if...

    Black Widow (2020)

    I agree with what you are saying. But there is a bit of a difference here. It may not matter to certain people, it won't stop me from seeing the film. But there's an emotional thread that can't be ignored. We watched her die, and that to some degree has never really been done before where a...

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I miss the days where each and every idea that made up a story was actually on screen for everyone to see. If it wasn't on the screen, it wasn't accepted to be part of the story, period.

    Dude that showed him the suit got it with Amazon Prime.

    Suicide Squad 2 ()

    Is this gonna be the second movie involving Harley Quinn where they regret the name they gave the movie immediately after it's released, and blame the name on the poor performance?

    Indiana Jones 5 (2022)

    Thank you for sharing, that was terrific. How could you not admire this man?

    Bob Iger steps down as Disney CEO. Chapek takes over

    Seems like an unusually hostile message as an initial message from a member who just joined today.

    The Call of the Wild (2020)

    A funny little thought occurred. I wonder if part of the reason they didn't use any live animals is that Ford might not have been terribly tolerant of it. I could just imagine Ford on set, exasperated that the dog won't do the expected things, hit the marks etc and swearing like a sailor...

    The Call of the Wild (2020)

    RT shows 65 percent critics, 90 percent audience. Of course that score will move a lot in the early going, but the CGI is called out in the critic reviews specifically.

    The Matrix 4 (2021)

    I keep forgetting that Bound was a Wachowski affair. Great film.

    The Matrix 4 (2021)

    Loved Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas. Jupiter, not so much. The world premiere of Cloud Atlas especially was a fond memory for me - on my birthday at TIFF. Was so amazing seeing everyone all at the same place and in person. As for Matrix 4 - looking forward to seeing what ideas they come up...

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Heck yes. I had confidence this would be good. Not disappointed at all.

    Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020)

    When I first heard the title of the film, my immediate thought was that it was too clever for itself. Pretentious, even. They made that bed themselves. My guess is that no one was calling it by it's original name anyways. Probably just "that Harley Quinn movie".

    What is Uber's Malfunction?

    It took a couple of years after it's inception for me to give it a try. I'm a fan. I stand wherever I please, press a button, and I usually have a ride in 3 mins or less. I get to say precisely where I want to go, the app feeds that info to the driver so that their GPS is already programmed...

    Dolittle (2020)

    As of this exact moment, audience score is 100 percent. lol! Ah, the science of movie reviews. The studio should hurry up and screen shot that before it's too late!

    Joker (2019 Movie)

    How can you say this.... ...and then go on to say this? Bit of a contradiction?

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    I'm not a super Billie fan, but I came across her music about six months or so ago, and she's grown on me a heck of a lot. One of my favourite videos/songs of hers is "Bellyache" and I think it is probably the song that would show anyone who doesn't know her what her voice is really like...

    Dolittle (2020)

    Been a while since I have seen so many splat logos on the page. Already figured this was DOA, but will be interesting to see how much better the audience score will be.

    Joker (2019 Movie)

    I think their advertising campaign for this film was very, very honest. It was an alternate or reimagined origin story. If someone literally attended the film because of the name of it without at least checking out a trailer, that's on them.

    Also felt DeNiro was off. His cadence sometimes felt like he was reading from cue cards.

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Ah, I am bummed. For some reason that video isn't available. Usually with anything SNL, its not available in Canada. edit: found it Also, I woudn't judge her talent based on her live performances. She often dances to the point of breathlessness, and her vocals suffer. Her studio work is...

    Joker (2019 Movie)

    Which Dark Knight are you referring to? The ones you know already? That's the intriguing thing about this film. This particular Joker is in a universe where Batman doesn't exist yet. The creators of this universe can make Batman anything they want and they can also allow the passage of time...

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Billie Eilish would be an inspired choice if they can come up with something that suits her vocals and has a Bond style.

    Joker (2019 Movie)

    In the context of this particular Joker universe, you could easily imagine Joker becoming Batmans nemesis, but you have to follow the pretext this particular universe has put in front of us. This Joker doesn't fit into the Nolan Batman universe, nor does he fit the Tim Burton universe, or any...
