    He comes off in this as exactly as much of a self-important dipshit as he seems like he would be.

    I dont know that Id describe it as “feeling bad for him” but I do think there is something profoundly sad about a man beating alcholism only to give into his vices and become the worst version of himself possible.

    I watched Hard Candy again today.

    I'm not about to claim it's the best written movie ever or anything, but it's incredibly engaging, and Slade's style just works on me in a serious way. It bums me out he hasn't done any films since that Twilight movie.

    Oh man, that guy did a Twilight?
    I love Hard Candy

    Yeeeep. It's actually kind of a gorgeous movie. It's sort of like the Prisoner of Azkaban of the Twilight series, except, you know, not very good.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    he didn't even blow his money on dinosaur bones, like nic cage

    Speaking of nic cage, I did not realize he was the one who got Depp into acting because they were drinking buddies

    Saw the new Jurassic World.

    It's dumb, sure, but it knows where its strengths lie and is overall more enjoyable than the last one. There were only one or two scenes where my eyeballs rolled out of my head.

    so far, this movie is one hundred percent a bunch of cool ideas hampered by only have seven dollars and a roll of lifesavers as a budget

    it ain't deep or nothing, but i'd've loved to see them with some doper effects

    they do a quick hand-wavey reason as to why the dinosaurs look fake as hell (it's a the matrix you die in the game you die in real life jawn)

    but dang this coulda been something special a few decades ago when it woulda been a decently budgeted mid-range action movie

    It's the X-Men universe's Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a completely different person.

    Well sure, multiverse theory and all that. It's just on the surface it's intentionally confusing.

    Like also how in the heck the "franchise" is supposed to move forward since the reason the second movie happened doesn't exist.

    Deadpool experienced the character growth even though he later rewrote the events. Cable is still there, the kid had also experienced the character growth, etc.

    Or if they do a third one, maybe it would be about Deadpool having horribly broken time and the effects of that. Maybe Vanessa being brought back from death will give her powers? Who knows.

    Dave Bautista is a treasure. He lends so much weight to that scene and what comes after. Speaking of, I’m impressed that I remained unspoiled on the main plot. I never, ever would have guessed that was the direction they’d go in.

    Still have 45 minutes to go, but I’m off to sleep for now.

    Just got a new email from Movie Pass about their latest attempt to try and cover the gaping wound that their cash is hemorrhaging out of
    A Message To Our Members:

    The revolution is happening now, and it is all thanks to you. In less than a year, three million pioneers joined us on our journey to see more great movies at an unbeatable price. And we want to thank you, our community, for your steadfast support of our company and growth.

    In the spirit of innovation and growth, we are now announcing the next phase in the evolution of our product: Demand Pricing.

    In the coming weeks, we will roll out three different upgrades to our base $9.95 service for our members.

    Bring-A-Guest: MoviePass members will be able to purchase extra tickets to a showing of a movie right through the MoviePass app, so that you can seamlessly reserve seats for you and your friends (at e-ticketing partner theaters) to watch a film even if they aren’t MoviePass subscribers. As a benefit, if your friend signs up for MoviePass within 24 hours, we’ll refund the entire cost of the ticket!

    Peak Pricing: MoviePass is committed to maintaining our low monthly price as we continue to grow rapidly. Rather than raise our prices or limit viewings, our plan has been to develop a new variable pricing system based on the demand for particular showtimes. Under this plan, if the combination of demand for a title, date or part of day is higher, subscribers may be asked to pay a small additional fee depending on the level of demand. You can avoid this peak surcharge by choosing an alternative date or film. We will also soon give subscribers one “peak pass” per month, allowing them to waive a Peak Price surcharge once per month. Annual and Quarterly subscribers will not incur peak pricing until their current subscription term ends and then renews.

    Premium Showings: MoviePass members on any plan will soon be able to access RealD 3D, IMAX 2D or 3D, and other Premium Large Format showings of any film for an additional upgrade fee.

    These features are being tested currently and will slowly roll out to all our members over the next several weeks.

    Our aim is to create the most flexible and cost-efficient product, so that we don’t have to simply raise the price on the subscription. We appreciate your flexibility as we evolve our service to keep MoviePass at a low cost. We can’t express how much we value all of you for being part of that vision.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    The MoviePass Team

    He had a problem in his 20s and supposedly got over it. I don’t have time right now to go double check my memory but my understanding was that he was drive for a number of years.

    It’s sad that he seems to beat it and lost so completely later. Its sad that massive success seems to lead to that.

    CW, addiction.
    In my experience, alcholism isn't something you really beat - you learn to live with it, without drinking. And any major change or adjustment to your life, you have to figure out and piece together a way to keep sobriety going, because it's easy when something changes or someone leaves or circumstances shift to let a that hole get refilled. Because it's always there and nothing really replaces addiction or the spot it leaves with you.

    Insidious little fucker.

    Depp is still an abusive piece of shit.

    I kind of feel like, Depp is definitely an unrepentant domestic abuser and (on a considerably less important but still somewhat contemptible level) a millionaire who was just a fucking idiot with his money etc etc etc

    But I feel bad because, like, he was abused as a kid by his mother if we're honest about it, and I think that the damage called by that was exacerbated by the ridiculous culture of celebrity, Hollywood etc.

    And I'm not going to cry for his financial struggles because absolutely fuck that, and he definitely beat his wife and should have been locked the fuck up, but it's definitely kind of tragic that it all comes from how profoundly fucked up he is, and a lot of that is coming from a really bad, poor childhood.

    That movie is fucking great.

    Haven't seen the second one yet.

    Still like to use "Remember, you wanted this" in conversation at least once a week.

    There’s a bit in the second one where he tells a guy exactly how hes going to beat him up and then it comes to the fight and it really looks like he’s going to have to beat him up in a less specific way and then nope he totally pulls it off.

    He's pulling a True Lies?
