    I thought, based on the title, it would be one kind of movie, and that was an idea I was here for, and then I saw the trailer, and it seems like a very different kind of movie, one that I am also here for, but which seems at odds with a lot of the basic conceits

    The reviews on it don't sound great. I was tempted to watch it this weekend, but not so sure now.

    i have not read a single one honestly

    i don't trust reviews

    If I scan through 5-10 reviews and most of them point to the same issue(s) with a film, and it's something that is likely to be an issue for me as well, I'll usually wait until I can watch it without paying anything (beyond my pre-existing monthly fees or whatever).

    A lot of the reviews are just "the title is silly but it's actually dour so zero stars" and like watch the trailer dummy

    oh yeah no i get it. i just never know what will or won't work for me. even i can't predict me, so getting too much feedback is actually a negative? weird, i know.

    i basically just go with the gut reaction i get from a trailer

    it's accurate like 96% of the time for me

    The Trench will probably never actually get made, like a bunch if other DC projects, but I don't hate it.

    They were legitimately creepy and would make for a good horror flick

    It's just such a weird pull to make instead of, like, a Mera or Black Manta movie

    Guess the sequel to The Meg won’t take its title from the novel (The Trench).

    Seems like it could be entertaining if they managed to get an almost lovecraftian horror of the unknown going.

    But this line:
    Wan and Peter Safran will produce the project, titled The Trench, which would be much more modestly budgeted than the normal DC superhero tentpole.
    kind of quashes any anticipation, because I can't imagine a movie about a CGI trench at the bottom of a CGI ocean populated with CGI hordes of CGI monsters would be able to conform to a modest budget, even a budget that is only modest when compared to other super hero movies.

    Why can't a spinoff of Aquaman also be a sequel to The Meg?

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla KOOKABUNGA LIVES Registered User regular
    Eh, you would be surprised

    A "modest" budget for a superhero movie nowadays is like 60-80 million dollars

    If they don't get any real big names, that's still a lot to work with, effects wise

    Can't we like get Woody Allen, Roman Polanksi, Max Landis and James Dean (the porn performer not the dead actor) out to some deserted island where we like dropped nuclear bombs on it?

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Polanski has made “feminist” films. Louis CK has done “feminist” comedy. Their actions kind of negate that fact!

    Apparently when he isn't writing about movies, Jordan Zakarin dabbles in making short films. He's credited as the writer and director of winners like The OCD Couple - "A guy tries to leave his apartment to go on a date, but keeps getting sucked back in by the imaginary roommate that embodies his obsessive compulsive disorder."

    Look, I can respect the 'get work, get paid' ethic required of those working the entertainment industry, but after Woody Allen, Louie CK, and now Landis, I'm beginning to wonder if Chloe Grace Moretz really honestly didn't have alternative opportunities to pursue.

    Honestly Im a little more worried FOR her then worried about her. She has been in the business since she was a child and appearing in that many movies with abusive men makes me wonder if she's entirely making these choices.

    Going back to Soderbergh for a sec, one thing I like to keep in mind when thinking about his work is that he’s almost always worked as his own cinematographer, even on his biggest productions. While that gives him a rare amount of control over his films, and a more direct connection to his images than a lot of directors have, it’s an enormous amount of responsibility on set. Not just creatively, but simply managing crew. I’m sure he has help, but a big part of being a cinematographer is working with the camera/grip/gaffer crew.

    So with that in mind I can definitely see the appeal of this:

    That's Landis' opinion, Moretz hasn't commented as far as I've seen.

    I've always wanted to know how the conversation at Warner Brothers went.

    "I have! Did you think the same thing I did watching it?"
    "That's a lot of peni--" "Harry Potter!"
