  1. Terminator Franchise On Hold Indefinitely

    So if he's working with Tim Miller, I guess that means Miller will direct it but that Cameron will produce and write it. That makes enough sense since Cameron is devoting most of his energy to the Avatar sequels right now. Cameron's writing and vision is the most important part. My guess is Arnold returns. He's certainly interested in it. Even after it was announced that Emilia Clarke was stepping down and the franchise was on hold, Arnold still said he was interested in a sixth film. The whole "living human tissue that still ages" angle they used to work him into Genisys was about as good of an explanation as you could want to explain his age. Interesting that they call it both a "reboot and conclusion" since those terms seem a bit contradictory. Alright, so he wants to end the franchise properly which is good, but that makes it unclear how much of the more recent entries his ignoring or if it will be something else entirely.God, what a mess of a series. Imagine trying to explain these movies to someone in another ten years: "Yeah watch the first two, but the second two don't count, then watch the 2019 one, but you're okay to watch the 2015 one since it explores an alternate timeline, but the ending of that one is no longer canon so make sure you stop it literally as soon as the credits start." I'm one of the few who enjoyed Genisys, but man, talk about a series that should have died (and did, more or less) without Cameron. Ironically, he's the one we have to blame.
  2. Budweiser Stage is the worst renamed Toronto venue since Rogers bought the SkyDome.
  3. The Official Blu-Ray Thread

    I forgot about pre-ordering the Criterion ofHis Girl Fridayand now it's up to $60 on Amazon Canada. Yikes. It's no better on Amazon.com either ($50 plus shipping and exchange rate). Time to wait patiently for a price drop.
  4. Japan Merchandise 2017

    I do like the Katana N' Roses shirt I must say.
  5. The Angry Video Game Nerd

    I can't believe the Nerd has been around for over ten years now (technically longer but I'm going by his YouTube start which is when I became a fan). His videos used to be nostalgia trips for old games, but now his old reviews are like nostalgia in themselves. Even more than just than the Nerd character, I like the content on the Cinemassacre site and channel. Ironically, James Rolfe himself has done better to further my interest in film than old video games. I do still watch the new game reviews when he posts them but I actually prefer most of the other content on the site.
  6. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2017 Edition

    Well, to recap what I last posted in the other thread: Rebecca (1940) and Spellbound (1945) Both excellent, but I strongly recommend Rebecca for a watch if you had to pick one. Both films are notorious (no pun intended) for the creative battles the ensued during production when Hitchcock found himself stuck in a reluctant contract, but the troubles don't show on film. Rebecca sees Hitchcock try his take on the Gothic structure and it's a very effective film with great performances and many unexpected twists. It's also Hitchcock's only film to win Best Picture.
  7. What are you watching? a.k.a. Film Thread v 2.0

    Hitchcock double feature last night as I often like to do withRebeccaandSpellbound.
  8. 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

    North By NorthwestandBack to the Future.I like all kinds of movies across decades and genres but those are two definite "desert island" picks.
  9. 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

    Well, at leastthe two contenders for my favorite film of all time made the list.
  10. Celebrities you want to shag.

    27? He's older than me.
  11. Can someone translate Melissa's interview into English?
  12. Celebrities you want to shag.

    Are we sure he's not in middle school?
  13. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story **SPOILERS**

    Yeah reading my post again does seem a bit like I'm in denial. But no, I think I did myself a favour by waiting a year to watch TFA and enjoy it for what it is instead of getting caught up in the hype and/or criticisms.
  14. 2017 Death Pool Draft

    Good call on Superfly. He never crossed my mind until the "unfit to stand trial" business, but that was after the cut off for the pool anyways.
  15. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story **SPOILERS**

    The map thing didn't bother me - it's basically a glorified MacGuffin. It's not like the original trilogy was without its plot holes or silliness. The Starkiller Base was the only part where I went "okay, that's a little too similar..." but otherwise I thought it was nice that they didn't take the "dark and gritty" route that every other rebootquel seems to take these days. It was lighthearted and fun, and hey - even the best of ideas in the original trilogy were borrowed from somewhere. It was Lucas paying tribute/homage to the films he enjoyed. That's where I feel like The Force Awakens comes in - it's a tribute to the original trilogy and made entirely for fan service. That said, I agree that maybe overall it leans a little too heavily on A New Hopein particular, but as I've mentioned before I'm okay with that as long as VIII takes the groundwork and propels the series forward.
