    Expectations are key. Daybreakers came out in a year with 5242341 other shitty vampire movies and I saw it casually at home, on DVD while eating pizza, having never heard of it. I had fun.

    I never actually got round to watching Prometheus. Although I did rewatch the first two alien films when it came out

    Ridley Scott movies are almost always better in the 17 hour directors cut version

    like Kingdom of Heaven was actually a good movie just not the version anyone saw in the theaters

    Few movies inspire as much hate as I have for Prometheus. Worse movies have been made but none of those tricked me into getting excited for months, paying to go to a theater, and then watching everything I love about scifi get shat on for 120 minutes.

    Yeah I've had fun at shitty movies like that but I just expected way way more from him on this, and it was like he didn't even care.

    I mean if we find out he's getting alzheimers or something and people have been trying to keep it under wraps and get him treatment etc then it will just become tragic. But until then I am p mad bro.

    I'll probably watch it at some point. Assuming it's on Netflix.

    There are two dogs here, Brownie and Russel

    Both boy dogs, basically twins. No idea what breed they are, but they're basically 80lb mops.

    Anyway, two vastly different personalities. Just now I yelled out the window to them because they got in a barking loop (one barks and sets the other off, repeat ad infinitum).

    Russel stops immediately, lays down and looks appropriately chagrined, Brownie refuses to even acknowledge my presence until I address him specificially by name.

    He's got an attitude, is what I'm saying.

    Gladiator was worse in the extended cut. It added in more romance with the sexy Roman noble lady and a kiss, which is a horrible misjudgement given it undercuts the whole devoted husband thing that is the uplifting emotional high at the end.

    I really thought that after Matchstick Men Allison Lohman was going to be the next big thing. She even got a few leading roles after that, and then . . . . pfft. Nothing. According to IMDB she hasn't made a film in 5 years.

    yeah sometimes extended cuts just show you how important editing is

    but then you get stuff like the director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven, which takes it from ok movie to solid movie imo

    The narration ruins it, I feel. The minimalism of the director's cut places the focus on the movie's sets which are the film's strongpoints.

    daybreakers was so close to being a great movie

    it was entertaining though

    I get why people like the theatrical noir voice over but the ambiguous ending is 1000% better and I don't need the voice over for it to feel noir

    Just pretend I had a lot to say in response to this and we went back and forth about the differences between a schtick and genuine feelings and you saying there is no difference and me disagreeing and then we agree to disagree.

    Ridley Scott, please stop making things you are done. You made Alien and Blade Runner. And Black Hawk Down I guess.

    Please no more. My heart can't take another Prometheus. I will die.

    he will roll dice to see what his characters do

    it'll be fun!

    I can agree with that much.

    But every cut of the film just tries to hammer a forced plot twist harder than the last, and that kinda ruins it for me.

    Black hawk down was really bad. We still take the piss out of a friend for wanting to see it. I can't even remember what the other film choice was but we all know that Craig demanded we watch black hawk down instead.

    He did apologise afterwards but he was not forgiven. I presume this crime will be engraved on his tombstone

    I can sympathise with Craig. What was that awful movie a few years ago with the reverse vampires? I dragged friends to that and still get abuse over it.

    A friend convinced us to go see Ultraviolet whenever that came out.

    I bring it up any time he mentions he has any idea ever, because I am a dick.

    i demanded that frankie watch iron man 3 with me

    she still makes fun of me for that

    god so bad

    I have to wonder at the Hollywood logic where Christian Bale's last two major roles were that of elderly Jews.
