    I just discovered that Snyder fans piled in on the 'public vote' awards and Justice League and his zombie movie won them both. Their absolute devotion to everything he does and the continuing insistence that he is the sole genius of cinema is incredible.

    The other day I saw someone insisting that he invented the idea of shooting just someone's legs as they were walking.

    I was waiting for my computer to do a thing. So I decided since I had a bit of time to kill, I should watch the first 10 minutes of Encanto, you know just to get a feel for the movie and see if I wanted to watch it later.

    Spoiler: I didn't watch just 10 minutes of Encanto.

    This all just goes to show why theaters are shit and should be eliminated.

    If there were no theaters, there'd be no Oscars.

    Because where would they hold them? IN A BARN? I think not.

    No way home, maybe wasnt the worst spiderman, it was definitely the one that disapointed me the most.

    For those of you who don’t miss physical media, AppleTV has an ENORMOUS sale on today of $5 movies

    Lots of comedies, Edgar Wright, Armando Ianucci, 80s flicks . . . easily over 100 films in this sale. I probably bought 20 or more. It’s nuts.

    Also, Best Animated Feature continues to be a joke as the film that should have won (and won the awards where the people voting actually respect the medium) lost to This Year's Disney/Pixar/DreamWorks Film for the same stupid reason that the Academy continues to allow the full Academy to vote on the award, even when a good portion holds animation in contempt.

    The money it brings in goes to fund the Academy's preservation, archival, and education activities, and that's not nothing. But there is a lot of grade A gooseshit that happens with the awards. Best Animated Feature is just one of the most notorious because of how it gets treated.

    To me, it felt like the creators embraced the actual messiness of life, as opposed to the controlled chaos you get in your usual major studio fare.

    Everyone loves a 3 to 4 hour self congratulatory advertisement.

    I watched John Wick 3 last night and it bugged me that he travels around the world for a thing and loses a finger so he can come back and immediately change his mind about the thing.

    Death on the Nile in a day or two on D+, I hear they changed the final act and Armie Hammer devours everyone but chokes to death on Poirot's moustache. I am mainly watching it for said moustache.

    BLGTqtU.jpg

    From George Lucas' 50th birthday in '94; Clint Howard's brother, Senor Spielbergo, Marty Score, Brian DePalma, Lucasfilm, Robert Zemeckis, Coppola Winery.

    I saw this picture in passing and it got me to thinking if there's any real modern comparison. All these directors, who knew each other beyond just acquaintances, all hitting their strides in a similar time and bringing a variety of films from intimate to blockbusters, and this being right at their prime or just past it before we see real damage like the prequels or Coppola falling off hard.


    You've got Taratino, you've got Edgar Wright, Taylor Sheridan maybe?

    Ah.

    I really liked both of those. Mitchells vs the Machines had a better story and theme. Encanto songs are pretty addicting though :P . But yeah, overall I think I'd agree that Encanto wasn't "Best"

    I'm glued to American Graffiti any time I happen upon it. I honestly think it's better than Space Fights.

    The toy line was rather short-lived however.

    I don't hate recliner seats but I don't like them for movies. Drinking my beer and/or cocktails is very awkward when reclined. But for people who drink less than I do I can see where reclining would be pleasant.

    I saw pictures of some theater (possibly in Asia somewhere?) chain that has beds in the theater. That's just a step too far if you ask me.
