    Eddie Murphy is Dolemite in Dolemite is My Name. We've got a good cast here.


    Maybe maybe maybe he'll be in something good after all this time.
    Honestly..

    His late brother, Charlie, would've been superior in this role.

    I've heard good things about Murphy and Snipes from the film critics I follow

    Is that a sarcastic good things?

    Because the mention of Snipes instantly calls to mind the story that on Blade 3 he suddenly decided that he'd done enough acting and wouldn't doing any scenes with more than a grimace.

    Then again, it might actually have been a case of acting brilliance, because the most watchable part of the movie was Ryan Reynolds trying ANYTHING to get a reaction from him and failing over and over.

    Yeah, if he thought the movie was beneath him and quit, that'd be one thing. But being like "I'm going to be in the movie but I REFUSE to open my eyes for this shot," is next level shithead behavior.

    Snipes didn't do that out of nowhere. Snipes was an unprofessional dick, it was a negative response to the movie studio kicking him out of the production side and the franchise being taken away from him in his own movie to set up the B Squad. Anyone would have been upset in those conditions.

    It's possible that he was contractually obligated to finish the movie and felt like it could have been better.

    So this show comes to Netflix today. It stars Iko Uwais of Raid fame. I'm definitely going to watch this.
    Sounds like Big Trouble in Little China lite?

    Anyone watched it? Any good?

    Watched the first two episodes, good fight scenes but the CGI is like 1992 quality. The premise is kinda hokey.

    I am almost done with it. The CGI stuff is pretty bad but the story is interesting and the fight stuff is pretty top notch. I am enjoying it so far.

    TIFF is always pretty good about providing new trailers for films:

    Here's one for Wang Xaioshuai's latest film, a family saga about loss in contemporary China. Looks assured and moving:



    And then another I'm looking forward to, the latest Kiyoshi Kurosawa film which is about an unrooted Japanese travel show host in Uzbekistan:

    Currently watching: 1948/unseen Criterions

    I've watched the trailer for Last Christmas and I think I've been shown the entire plot, the protagonists's whole journey and have guessed the crazy twist, so I guess I'm good now. Very efficiently done, guys.

    The Morning Show, Apple TV+'s first streaming offering:



    looks pretty generic but two things came to mind:

    1) Are they using Final Cut to make that trailer?
    2) If you tell me to trust only one person, Michael Scott, Legally Blonde, or Rachel Green, it's always gonna be Prison Mike.

    I think I saw the trailer for that ahead of Spider Man?

    It's REALLY good and I'm excited. I hope they go full Clue and do different endings.

    Edit: Maybe I saw it here and watched the trailer a few times. Legit can't remember.

    Looks to be cynical in a shallow, uncreative way. Give me political cynicism that shows the public is the real problem, that's what I'd like to see.

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    It just feels like an extremely obnoxious version of Election, kind of like how fashion and music these days is take precious 80's/early 90's perfection and ruin it.

    We have always been at war with younger generations, we must destroy them.

    I had to smile when the music played, because there was a fan trailer of KSP that used the same music.

    Said trailer was such high-quality that I believe the musicians thought Squad made it themselves and violated their copyright.

    That's awesome! It looks like the announce trailer used some similar shot compositions too. That's gotta feel good, making a fan thing that gets recognized by the devs.

    I know it's obviously a crime cartel but Rambo taking on exclusively mexicans is problematic. But then wasn't his last film taking on exclusively an ethnic group (I can't remember where it was set) here?

    It was set in Burma, against a military that were at the time (and probably still are) committing genocide.

    But like in 2019 staging a movie about a scary mexican cartel working indiscriminately in america feels a lot like that Jennifer Garner revenge movie, just a fox news written movie. Which is fine to hollywood, but don't you dare put out something that offends the other side in this country.

    The last movie was set in Burma, IIRC, so it's not too surprising that most of the people on both sides would be of a regional ethnicity.
