    Oh god I'd say quite the opposite, John Leguizamo gives 1000% in any role, he gives it to a detrimental extent, he gave it in The Happening, he ate real bugs for Spawn real wriggling bugs fuckin DiCaprio got an oscar for biting a dead fish wheres Leguizamos oscar?? You fucks wheres Clowns oscar?!!

    Leguizamo was quite good in Chef and it's a pretty restrained role also.

    Read some more of the Godzilla vs Kong novelization and, uh, Bernie (the conspiracy theory guy) has officially moved up in my opinion from "forgettable comic relief" to "the most interesting human character in the Monsterverse".
    In the movie, all we find out about Bernie is that his wife died at some point, he runs a conspiracy theory podcast, and he's been undercover at APEX.

    The novelization reveals A LOT of backstory to this guy:
    • Bernie's wife Sara worked for Apex even before Godzilla and the MUTOs attacked San Francisco. Following the attack she began to talk about the monsters at home often, which Bernie found a bit curious.
    • Later, Sara suddenly quit her job, leading to tensions that caused the couple to take a break. Just as things were looking up she was involved in a car accident and died at the hospital.
    • Weeks later, Bernie discovered a note Sara had hidden at home that read "Godzilla>Apex>Monarch Contract>shipping manifest>component for bomb." The next day he applied for a position to Apex.
    • Bernie started the Titan Truth Podcast under the pseudonym Mad Truth. He also came to believe that Apex agents had caused the car "accident" that killed Sara.
    • After the events of KotM, a number of disgruntled Monarch employees approached Bernie to share what they know about a connection between Apex and Monarch that has since been buried.
    • The "bomb" Sara had found out about was none other than the Oxygen Destroyer that was used in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Apex had been informed of the other Titans by Monarch and was commissioned to create a weapon to kill them (presumably while most of them were still in containment).

    I've just gotten to the part where Godzilla arrives in Pensacola, but as of now I suspect that Bernie's more outlandish claims and behaviors are all an act to make him seem less competent than he is. He knows Monarch was connected to Apex and believes Apex killed his wife after she discovered the company had been contracted by Monarch to create a weapon against the Titans, so even when he introduces himself to Mark Russell at the end of the movie he could have bigger ambitions than just getting Mark on his podcast. He might be looking for an in to Monarch to go undercover within it just as he did Apex.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/everyone-just-knows-hes-an-absolute-monster-scott-rudins-ex-staffers-speak-out-on-abusive-behavior
    Even as other Hollywood bullies are being sidelined, the uber-producer behind 'The Social Network' and Broadway’s 'To  Kill a Mockingbird' has been given a pass for his volcanic temper. Now, former employees open up about a boss who left many traumatized: "It was a new level of unhinged."
    For some four decades, Rudin's abusive behavior has been chronicled — even celebrated — by the press. In a 2010 profile, this publication dubbed him "The Most Feared Man in Town" and called him "dazzlingly charming" one paragraph after describing acts of cruelty and intimidation. In a 2005 Wall Street Journal profile with the headline "Boss-zilla!," Rudin himself pegged the number of assistants he burned through in the previous five years at 119.

    When this broke, various work friends were all like, "Oh, that's finally going public, everyone's known for years."

    And I get why people don't say things publicly (especially in cases like this one where the figure is notoriously, openly retaliatory), but it's still frustrating to realize, "Oh, nobody ever said this shit to me, and I could have easily ended up working with him someday without ever knowing until it was too late." Because I'm newer to being on the other side of the gate, because I didn't grow up in/around the industry bubble, I was never privy to the "common knowledge" of his abuses. And that sucks, and that's part of how people get away with shit for so long.

    (But again, I get why people are afraid to speak out, and the real problem is, as always, the abuser. Shit's all just complicated)

    The worst thing about Romeo + Juliet is that schools started showing it instead of the Zeffirelli version and deprived kids from seeing titties in class.

    Which means the teachers (and producers) are gross, not the kids. Also, I was mostly being facetious even if 16 year old pre-internet me appreciated it.

    The sword thing being memorable is funny to me because it's what like every modern stage production of Shakespeare does

    I think it's well done in the movie with the close ups and brand names and what have you, but it's also something that I would barely even notice in a production

    I mentioned this over in the D&D movie thread but wanted to bring the movie The Empty Man to people's attention. If you watch the trailer you're going to get the sense that it's some stupid Candyman/Bye Bye Man kind of ripoff. It is not.

    People really need to check this thing out. It was the last film slated by Fox to be released prior to being purchased by Disney so it got essentially no marketing budget nor even much of a prospect to end up on video.

    It clocks in a little long at around 2:15 long but really ends up going some places. Definitely recommend people check it out.

    It also has a scene where the main character (James Badge Dale) has the most realistic (and hilarious) response to something super freaky happening to him.

    Misleading trailer for convenience:
