    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Agreed. I'm not even a huge fan of westerns but I went and saw this (and liked it) because it was a big financial swing & wasn't Part 300 in an another unending franchise and I wanted to support a movie like that.

    My guess is that he is but he's going to have to make decent size cuts on the budgets on them.

    Same at mine right now but it's down to one starting on Friday.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I think that it would be fair to say that alot of this movie is setup for the rest of them but I do think that once the four films are complete and you can see the work as a whole, it will be quite impressive. None of that is meant to be a slam against Chapter 1 because a story needs to start...

    Absolutely and I agree with his overall point but I just found it funny that he thinks that 90 minutes is anywhere near an average running time today.

    I wish Rooker was right about that. :laugh:

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I meant saluted in the artistic sense. They didn't save a busload of orphans from a burning building or anything but even for guys as wealthy as Coppola or Costner, it's still a ballsy financial move to put up millions of their own money especially when basically the entire industry is built on...

    Even if Horizon and Megalopolis were the two worst movies ever made, Costner and Coppola still deserve to be saluted for that very reason.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I think alot of people on social media are more interested in being funny to get more engagement, likes, followers, etc. so there's more focus on making jokes or in being mean than in actual film criticism. That's not everyone and it's not to say that people on Tik Tok didn't legitimately...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    If you're looking for a "psychological reason", I'd say it's because Netflix has trained their audiences that they have to watch everything all at once or they'll miss out on the two or three day conversation that goes on about their shows. If you aren't watching the weekend that new episodes of...

    But knowing when to cut half an hour or an hour out of a movie can make the difference between the movie being good or being bad.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I think one thing in this movie's favor is that the dropoff for next weekend probably won't be too bad. This movie's largest market is an older crowd and they don't all rush out to the first weekend. Whether that will be enough to make the movie(s) turn a profit and get more made is obviously...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I think an older crowd is going to see this movie whether it's good or bad so it'll be well financially.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I think Costner and, by extension, Yellowstone will get an older crowd to turn out for this movie and it'll do well. And it's a genius move to release Part 2 six or so weeks later because the first one will still be on people's minds and memories and they'll gladly go see the next "episode" so...
