re: British Film Institute vows not to fund movies w/ facial scarred villains - red_giraffe
[quote]What an odd thing to suddenly take a stance on. was this really a big problem that had to be addressed? The better way to handle it would be to make a hero with scars.[/quote] I was born with a cleft lip and have a scar so I guess I can at least give my point of view on this. My view is...

The only good scene from The Dark Tower movie. - red_giraffe
So yeah The Dark Tower sucked big donkey balls. The filmmakers forgot the face of their fathers. But I have to admit, the [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIlpo2mj_qk)]Gunslinger's Creed[/link] scene was absolutely phenomenal. I know it's strange to say just a scene is phenomenal, but this ...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]They probably should have just made Cassian the child of Galen and thrown the Jyn character away then left the rest of the movie alone. I think that small change greatly changes the movie for the better. And that is not a sexism thing. Cassian's character could have been female. It would have...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]It seems to me people wanted to walk into a theater and immediately like and be invested in the new movie after one viewing as much as a movie they have watched countless times since childhood. That is not a fair or even possible way to evaluate a movie.[/quote] While I can agree with that...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]Honest Question: how many times have you watched it?[/quote] To be honest, I don't know exactly. It wasn't a lot. So I guess I could say my opinion could change if I were to see it again. That's a fair point to make. [quote]Not that many people cared or were super attached to someone li...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]I do not understand the repeated comments of "it was too slow" "not enough actions"[/quote] I don't understand that reasoning either. I thought it was fine with the amount of slowness and action. The originals weren't complete action films. [quote]"a chore to sit through" "I did not imm...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus[/quote] Fair enough. I actually did care about them. Perhaps they should have been the main characters? It's just that everyone else in the film was so bland that I just kinda write off the whole film as having no character to care about. They had Diego Luna, R...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]The people that didn't like Rogue One were probably just upset all the characters died in the end (no happy SW ending).[/quote] Nah. It was just boring and uncompelling. So were the characters. Cool premise. I liked the idea of a spy/war star wars film. Great list of actors. The droid has ...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]People like Rogue One because OMG Darth Vader kills a bunch of people![/quote] Thank you! That's all I ever hear is "OMG did you see the Darth Vader scene?!?!?!?!?!" Wow. Great. Cool scene on it's own. But completely irrelevant to the rest of the film. And it is completely misplaced, and r...

re: Watched Solo last night. - red_giraffe
[quote]Rogue One was a chore to sit through.[/quote] One thing I don't understand about everyone on this board is that they love them some Rogue One. I didn't think Rogue One was awful. But my god, it was not a good movie. I didn't give a frick about anyone in that movie. At least the saga films h...

re: Ethan Hawke Is Not That Impressed By Superhero Movies - red_giraffe
[quote]If a story has well-developed characters/protagonist/antagonist/premise/character arch/conflict then including a fantastical element like people in tights with metal coming out of their hands shouldn't disqualify it. That's like saying Lord of the Rings can't be a great movie because it's sti...
