His biggest career mistake was being WB's gun-for-hire to mangle Justice League. Should have done what was right and told WB to release the Snyder Cut as it was intended....

re: Just realized the “Prey” girl was in Hell Or Highwater… - UndercoverBryologist
She’s that old? Being in HoHW movie would make her no younger than…what…26? I thought she was no older than 20 in Prey. Edit: Turns out she’s 25, which isn’t bad I suppose. But it just feels like that movie was such a while back that that actress would have aged significantly since then. She stil...

Hot Take: J. Demme had a knack for actors who performed glorified supporting roles. - UndercoverBryologist
There’s a lot that’s already been said about Sir Anthony’s Lecter being a glorified supporting role, but Tom Hank’s Andy Beckett was more of a supporting role, wasn’t it? We see the movie through Denzel’s POV and he has the dramatic arc. Not a Demme movie, but a similar thing happens in Rain Man ...

re: AMC is showing E.T. in IMAX for the next couple of days for the 40th Anniversary... - UndercoverBryologist
Yeah, that 1985 re-release of E.T. was the last time a theatrical re-release was attempted on that scale before VHS rental/ownership became the dominant form of movie re-watch. After that, you saw re-releases, but it specifically was about “special editions” (e.g., the 1991 theatrical release of ...

[quote]eta: i wonder if they took the guns away from the cops in this version. [/quote] Hmm. I don’t think so. As I mentioned in a recent thread, Spielberg has disowned the 2002 cut. You can’t buy it in stores and the 1982 cut is the only one I see streaming these days. Edit: Also, it’s not l...

re: Mother sues Walmart after sleeping daughters burned alive in parking lot inferno - UndercoverBryologist
Fair enough. I guess it depends. And to be honest, if it was an obvious case of a Van Lifer in the space next to her car, you have to wonder what she was thinking. I don’t trust kids near anyone who lives out of a van. Is it clear from the story whether the Van Lifer was parked in the adjacent...

re: Mother sues Walmart after sleeping daughters burned alive in parking lot inferno - UndercoverBryologist
Please don’t tell me you’re one of those who also easily laments “helicopter parents”. I’m one of the overly “soft” Millennial generation, and even I remember being left in the car for mom to make a quick errand, which sometimes went longer than expected. Edit: Again, I’m definitely not saying 4...

re: Mother sues Walmart after sleeping daughters burned alive in parking lot inferno - UndercoverBryologist
As far as Walmart’s legal liability, while I don’t condone frivolous litigiousness, I would still at least wait to see what facts are revealed. I’ve seen many of these cases which look prima faciae frivolous end up revealing hidden negligence. (E.g. store managers knowing that fire threats existe...

re: Anne Heche Pronounced Brain Dead; Will Be Taken Off Life Support - UndercoverBryologist
Just checked YouTube. It’s barely visible when she falls down in the shower scene, but it’s in there. (The clip I found was actually hi-def. Don’t want to upset the high sheriffs of Tigerdroppings, so I won’t link it but it’s easily found.) Thanks for trivia. I didn’t realize there was a legitima...
