Movie News and Trailers 2 - The Sequel


#1061

We just remade Robocop. I know nobody remembers that, or wants to remember that, but that’s not a good excuse to do it again.

There has been one (1) great Robocop movie, and every other attempt has been awful. Not everything should be a franchise.


#1062

The remake was probably as good as we were gonna get, given how crap the franchise had been outside of the great original.

But Blomkamp is an instant no.


#1063

The original one is a classic and still holds up.

The sequels weren’t that good.

The made-for-TV movies were crap.

I never bothered with the remake.

#1065

A lot of the bad reviews I saw have to do with the audacity of making a movie centered around rather than the movie itself.


#1066

#1067

That’s the perfect excuse to do it again - only better.

Blomkamp loves scifi, robots, cyborgs and design. It’ll look spectacular.

Just keep his bloody hands off the script writing.


#1068

Always the same with him, I even heard him say himself in an interview that he doesn’t understand narrative. So all up for him designing and directing and not on script.

Early reactions to Mission: Impossible - Fallout from critics I follow on Letterboxd are positive:




#1071

Best movie review ever.


#1072

Or maybe this one is.

every other movie fuck right off


#1073

This is a great little piece on Die Hard - not just a tribute to the movie itself, but also a good analysis of what separates a great action movie from the mediocre ones.


#1074

Well that sounds terrible.


#1075

#1076

I’m not sure it’s a cinema movie outside of Thailand anyway? I can see it being huge on Netflix though.

Having a cast of unknown but super talented Thai actors they could make the film, respectfully, authentically, and show it globally with zero distribution costs.

It’s perfect TV movie material.


#1077

Holy shit. They’re already pitching films on this???


#1078

I’m pitching a film detailing the battle between the two different film projects.


#1079

It almost cheapens the diversity issue by using it to detract from the ambulance chasing nature of making the film in the first place.


#1080

It was already a movie, just one that happened in real time on the news channels. People watched because they felt emotion, they were entertained in that news/documentary/true story way.
