re: Does anyone in film or tv history have a better redemption arc than Prince Zuko? - Jay Are
Not going to argue against Zuko. I'll honorable mention Faith from Buffy. It's far less intricate in design and obviously less integral to the shoe's story than Zuko's, but the payoff (and much of the journey) is wonderful. ...

[quote]Val Kilmer[/quote] [quote]He was fired by Richard Stanley from The Island of Dr. Moreau after only three days. This is because he reportedly was always fighting with people. [/quote] Just noticed this. It was director Richard Stanley that was fired from Dr. Moreau, not Val Kilmer. ...

re: Actors/Actresses who killed their careers by being difficult - Jay Are
[quote]You can get away with that kind of stuff if you're a big enough star. Norton isn't.[/quote] He was in the early 2000s. And why are dinging him for doing a job the way marvel hired him to do it. Shouldn't we put the demerit on them? They obviously adjusted course by never letting a writer, ...

re: Actors/Actresses who killed their careers by being difficult - Jay Are
[quote]He has literally taken over scripts and editing of movies he wasn’t a script writer or director for. [/quote] Norton was literally paid to do this by most productions on which he did it. When he took the Hulk job, the rewrites were part of his contract. We don't tend to shite on the perfec...

re: Space Force is ridiculously unfunny - Jay Are
[quote]The Firefly, a show that's actually good and has a rabid fan base, cast says hi.[/quote] I don't think the Firefly cast has anybody with the name recognition and clout as Steve Carrell or John Malkovich. Or even Lisa Kudrow. Or even Ben Schwartz. Maybe not even Jessica St. Clair. Nathan Fi...

re: WB is Rumored to be Talking About Releasing The Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad - Jay Are
[quote]If the cut delivers what the Comic Con trailer promised, it should be an interesting take.[/quote] We did see that movie; it just didn't have "emotional trailer" music playing over the cut and fewer of the shots were in shown post-production slowmo. Trailers are commercials. Commercials ar...

[quote]Then watched the director's cut and enjoyed that as well. [/quote] Fair enough. I'll never get over watching minutes of book pages that explain plot to me. [quote]News like this and last week’s Justice League announcement give me hope that one day we’ll get the version of TROS that Kath...

re: WB is Rumored to be Talking About Releasing The Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad - Jay Are
[quote]Stopped reading right there.[/quote] It being awful wasn't my point. The financial stuff was. But I don't really like Donnie Darko in any form. I especially don't like directors spoon feeding me exposition by literally filming pages of a book. Darko is more interesting when I have to u...

re: WB is Rumored to be Talking About Releasing The Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad - Jay Are
[quote]but it's not like director's cuts are a new thing and there are quite a few that have significantly upgraded the film over what was released theatrically.[/quote] Most director's cuts we see use footage that was totally finished (vfx, adr, scored) and cut at the last second. Some use cut f...

[quote]WB is Rumored to be Talking About Releasing The Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad[/quote] Well, when you let one troll campaign win, you open up the doors to even dumber stuff. BvS, Suicide Squad, and Justice League are 3 of worst superhero films I can remember. Let's keep throwing money at th...
