    Just watched Weird. That was a good time. And a snappy 108 minutes which feels like such a novelty.

    It always surprises me how tiny and yet hench Daniel Radcliffe is.

    A very British/English version of swole/brick shithouse.

    Thus, a henchman is all brawn, no brains.

    Hmm, I see now why you only ever hear people talk about Tetsuo: The Iron Man. The Body Hammer is fine, it’s a lot easier to follow the narrative but I think it loses a lot of the energy, the soundtrack goes nowhere near as hard.

    Someday I'm gonna do a deep dive into that Shinya Tsukamoto boxset I've got https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Solid-Metal-Nightmares-The-Films-of-Shinya-Tsukamoto-Blu-ray/262785/ Only films of his I've seen are Tetsuo: Iron Man and Tetsuo: Bullet Man; was real underwhelmed by Bullet Man, probably didn't help that I watched it the same day/right after Iron Man

    Dementis is kind of an amazing character. Honestly the movie is worth the price of admission for him alone.

    I know but I am not trying to watch them so I can see the movie without the spoilers

    So you DON’T want to know that Wolverine shows up in act 3 and kills Dementis?

    Checked out I Saw the TV Glow last night and really enjoyed what it was putting down!
    Even as a cis-male in his early 40s, the nostalgia vibes being put out in this thing were in equal measures comforting and creepy for me.

    Big time hell yes recommendation from me.

    Skydance is merging with Paramount, and after Paramount lost what even the haters have to admit is a staggering amount of money on streaming productions, their idea to turn it around is find $2b in cuts in their traditional releases. These guys for real just get off on hurting people. Imagine calling yourself a business genius at Bain and starving the profitable departments to double down on the projects killing the company.

    I feel like if crime bosses were as murder hungry as they are in movies nobody would work for them.

    Listen. He delivered 49 of the 50 cars you want and he’s taking the value of number 50 out of what you were going to pay him.

    That’s a pretty reasonable deal!

    O-Ren Ishii is pretty reasonable.

    She's just got one minor rule that her sub-ordinates have to follow.

    I have no idea what ID4 is supposed to be.

    I thought I knew what ID4 was right up until I read this post
    I’m watching ID4. No way Data survived to the sequel. Like How?!? Granted I never saw the sequel so maybe they explain it? Adam Baldwin checks for a pulse and everything.

    Carth Onasi has a far bigger part than I thought.

    which referenced two completely different SF properties plus a sequel I didn't know existed, also I had zero memory of Brett Spiner being in Independence Day, so by the time I got to the end of ghost's post I thought I was in a mirror universe.

    You didn’t get me all 50 cars! I’m a crazy person!

    Now I’m going to crush this $80,000 car and kill the world’s greatest car thief even though I could easily use him to make me a shitload of money leaving me more time to have sex with wood.

    I know me and like three other people watched it, but Big Trouble is definitely a pre-9/11 movie just absolutely loaded with airport stuff that seems unbelievable now. Plus they had to push the release back because iirc it was supposed to premiere in September 2001 and features people bringing a bomb onto a plane! whoops!

    I confess though that I remember very little of it other than some kind of toad-induced hallucination that involves Martha Stewart? I was a big Dave Barry fan as a teenager, for whatever reason, and was sad when it got pushed back

    I dunno, he’ll fucken lose it if you bother him on the day of his daughter’s wedding. I mean, sure if you’re a regular worker, you have the right to disconnect. Vito needs to understand that if he wants to be boss and have time off he needs to delegate his responsibilities better.

    eh, the only time he went a bit nuts on the wedding day was to Johnny Fontaine when he was crying like a woman.

    I still can’t help but think that Gladiator 2 is just a collection of AI deepfake images that shitposters have spread around the internet and I’m not sure even watching a trailer could convince me otherwise.

    On the one hand, totally unnecessary sequel.

    On the other, Pedro Pascal and Denzel Washington.

    I think it could be good or even great

    That isn't just me hoping that Ridley will have his second great film released in 9 years, and first that I won't be the only one to have seen (yes I'm still mad about The Last Duel being slept on as hard as it was), but partially is that hope. Sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures, like putting Pedro Pascal in a legacy sequel
