why would they do a Murder She Wrote reboot! what fucking story do they really need to tell. I could see the plot-line for this, I've got it rather then one old lady solving mysteries by herself, the story opens with Jessica Fletcher funeral, she had passed away and her family found this book of unsolved mysteries she could never solve. so her long lost daughter who was busy getting her masters degree in forensic science comes home to pay her respects and find this book, her notes. but she's got a group of super duper team of experts who are out to help her solve the missing cases.. that's all I've got so far. I call it Murder She Wrote: the lost cases. and she had a lot of them... LOL

Episode one: The nursing home.
Episode two: The caregiver
Episode three: The Chair Lift
Episode four: The Missing Pills !
Episode five: The Safeways meat manager
Episode six: The Orange Julius

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2



Admittedly as a disclosure, I am not a fan of superhero movies. My brother and I read comic books as kids, but I never stuck with them. He's still a fan, though probably mostly out of having a son who's obsessed with superheroes. I have a son obsessed with superheroes, but he's only four, so he is pretty limited in what he's seen.

Now, down to brass tacks. I saw three superhero movies for the first time over the last week, because they're currently On Demand.

1. I watched The Avengers (2012) last week. Not my cup of tea, but I can see why people are big fans. B-.
2. I had Friday off from work and watched Deadpool. Really good. Solid B/B+.
3. Then saw Guardians of the Galaxy Sunday and then rewatched most of it last night. Holy cow. A-.
--Rad vintage soundtrack.
--Unique, interesting characters. I was unfamiliar with the story and it makes me want Marvel to put out more from lesser-known characters.
--Ronan is a badass and I kind of wish he was only kind of dead for a potential sequel appearance.
--Space!
--Groot is awesome. I'm indifferent on Rocket and Gamora.
--I'm a straight, married guy with kids...and now have a bit of a man crush on Chris Pratt.
--Why not an A or A+? Some too-corny moments and Drax. No, not excited about Drax in the sequel.

So yeah, consider me excited for GotG Part Deux. Until I saw Elie's post, I had no idea that a trailer was even out. It made my day!
Technicality. No. Down. Boo. Over.

Seeing GotG opening weekend with a packed audience of nerds was one of the best theater-going experiences I've ever had. And I go to the theater a lot. Even though I've seen it several times and still love it, that first experience with that crowd was just amazing and really elevated the movie itself. Every joke is that much better with a big part of the audience laughing hysterically even if this or that joke didn't land as well with you yourself. So that really helped with the Drax and groot jokes. Alternatively, opening weekend for Dr.Strange wasn't even remotely the same, most jokes still fell flat. That was the best barometer to tell me I wasn't crazy in thinking it was a poor effort from marvel.

Is the new Beauty and the Beast going to have all the songs from the original? It's too bad some of the original voice actors have passed on, like Angela Lansbury and Jerry Orbach. It looks great though, although Gaston doesn't look quite as beefy as his cartoon version.

My only worry about this adaptation is that it will be like Jungle book in that the overall story and acting will be good but the singing will be very lackluster, like it was in the Jungle Book. From looking at the cast, they have great actors providing the voices, but none of them I can really see selling the music outside of Stanley Tucci, Josh Gad, and maybe Kevin Kline.

Well Ewan McGregor has been known to sing from time to time as well.

Okay my two cents.

Beauty and the Beast - I agree with my fellow Cameron. If it's going to be a shot for shot remake what is the point? While I will see it, I'm not dying to see it. I am looking forward to the music though. Also I find the CGI face of the Beast to be a little flat and off putting.

GOTG2 - I love it and love how little information is given away. Neat visuals and a good joke, I know the tone and I'm hooked. I don't need or want to see more. As far as "Hooked on a Feeling" goes, I see it more as a marketing thing more than anything else. Like an unofficial theme song. I have no doubt that Awesome Mx Vol 2 will be a good listen.

Now what do you guys make of this?

^^^ I'm not a super fan of the original Ghost In The Shell -- it gets bogged down in pseudospiritual nonsense, when the best parts are the thriller/action stuff. The casting of Scarjo is pretty disappointing, I gotta say. You can handwave it away by saying "she's a cyborg/all new parts/etc", but it was always a Japanese character in a Japanese setting. I realize that casting her is probably why the movie got made, but still.

The guy playing Batou doesn't look a thing like him, either, assuming that guy with the eye implants is supposed to be him. Whatever.

Worst of all, it doesn't look like they're even sticking to the original story. Scarjo's Major is now the only cyborg in the world, which is a drastic change from the original -- everyone was part or full cyborg, androids and robots were common, 100% humans were a rarity. Based on just the trailer, it looks like it's gonna be Matrix-y action in a Blade Runner-ish world, probably more style than substance.

Writer and director have previously worked on Snow White & the Huntsman and Straight Outta Compton, very little else. Not much faith in this.

Also I'm beginning to hate that thing they do in trailers now, where they have a cover of a classic pop song but played SLOWER and EDGIER. This does it with Depeche Mode, Suicide Squad had Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" (also used on Clash Of The Titans), A Walk Amongst The Tombstones had a sad version of "Black Hole Sun", even Birdman did this with Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy".

I know someone who saw a very very early screening of GotG and said it's better than the original and that was with unfinished effects.

Emma Watson is obviously beautiful I'm just concerned about her singing abilities, I wish they had cast Emmy Rossum or someone with some singing experience. I find the whole shot for shot remake thing a little boring Cinderella was pretty average.

If anyone wants to watch a different take on Beauty and the Beast there's a French version called La Belle Et La Bete from 2014 it has amazing costumes but it's a little bonkers and the talking furniture is replaces with weird half dog half bunny creatures.

Totally off topic does anyone know the minisode that Jason is on, also what's the episode he talks about how he mixed up sides of Boston in the Covenant.

I really really want to rewatch Moulin Rouge now.

RE: Ghost in the Shell - FUCK THAT SHIT. I also was never really a fan of the original (if I remember correctly they aired it way too late for me to ever catch it on Adult Swim/Tsunami) but my ex was a huge fan and would make me watch clips of it. So it always seemed interesting and like something I would enjoy if I just actually sat down and consumed it. But fuck this movie. Their reasoning for casting ScarJo was purely for commercial reasons and they fully admit it. I consider that to be bull shit. There doesn't appear to be a single Asian woman in that entire trailer other than a glimpse of what presumably is a stripper. So fucking awesome.

I hope that movie tanks and hard.

From someone who knows nothing about the original Ghost in the Shell - watching that trailer, where we get all of this really interesting Japanese imagery and future dystopia stuff, seeing ScarJo was immediately jarring as a person out of place in this setting, and then it was only exacerbated by her first line in the trailer: "This is Major." Now, people familiar with the property would know that Major is the character's name, but I didn't, so it just sounded like some Bill and Ted/Juno-style assessment of the situation she's in: "Whoa homeskillet, this is MAJOR, dude". Took me right out of the trailer and I never got back in. This casting looks brutal.

He's right, though. I am so sick of real people not being as hot as cartoon characters.


Speaking of, am I the only one who got a little too excited to see Leela's and Amy's butts on Futurama?

Butt seriously, saying they should cast a different actress who is prettier drives me fucking insane! I'm tired of women's careers depending on their looks. it's disgusting. Sure, Tom Cruise [sorry Amy Nicholson] and Brad Pitt would no doubt be nobodies if they weren't so gorgeous, but come on. There's yet another sitcom on TV where Kevin Fucking James is married to a thin, good-looking wife. You don't see the opposite on TV very often; at least not in the States.

Also: spell check in this text box doesn't pick up the word 'ScarJo' as misspelled. There's something wrong with that.

i sort of agree but i am at a 50 50 split of slower version over hype hop version, what if they just did both and got it over with..


Mind you I did like the Portishead - S.O.S version.

As someone who has never watched a Cars movie, I have to ask -- do people drive the talking cars, or do they drive themselves? Are there people in this world, or is it some kind of post-apocalyptic shitscape where Skynet won and the machines wiped us out? What will happen when they reach peak oil?

There are no people. The cars drive themselves. The biggest mystery is how they build shit when they have no fucking hands.
