Have at the low hanging fruit, ladies and gents.  It's your Deadline Hollywood thread.

I want to see machete kills. but I'm gonna have to wait for DVD to do it.

$4 million? That's not bad. Didn't they make that flick for about 40 dollars?

I will be so sad if Machete Kills doesn't get the sequel that it sets up for.

I really hate most action movies lately because they try to be gritty or what have you, but Machete Kills is just fun, B-Movie schlock.

I am glad Gravity is doing well. We need more good looking space odyssey type thrillers.
 
2013-10-13 04:51:51 PM  
good.
 
2013-10-13 05:01:26 PM  
I think Machete Kills didn't do well because there's a large number of people waiting to see the first and it's been on backorder just about everywhere.
 
2013-10-13 05:02:11 PM  
Can't believe nobody thought to mention flogging the pirate, and this weak sauce got greened.

Or because it looks like it sucks. You know like the first one.

I wonder if in the next one he can have Machete jump over a shark tank on a motorcycle. Give it up Roddy you've spent too much time in vastly overpaid Spy Kids land.

I'm a little sad that Rush(the movie) isn't doing as well. It was an amazing movie had pretty much everything drama, comedy, action. really fantastic. Loved Gravity, need to see it again in imax 3d. the last half of Cap phillips was amazing. Normally the shaky cam doesnt bother me but this movie it was at ridiculous levels. I mean i can understand shaky at and during sea but why on land??

Saw three movies(Rush, Gravity & Philips) in a week at the theater something I havent done in years.
 
2013-10-13 05:20:44 PM  
Wait.....Machete Kills is out? I would have totally went to see it!

I want machete pirate kills...IN SPACE
 
2013-10-13 05:22:51 PM  
Gravity getting a lot money, mainly because the word of mouth.

Cap Phillips will earn Hanks a Oscar nomiantion.

And Machete...yeah, it's TOO silly.
 
2013-10-13 05:32:41 PM  
Gravity was very good.
Could have used less of the spinning though.
I do get vertigo easily so maybe not bad for everyone else.
3D is cool. don't care what everyone else says about it.
 
2013-10-13 05:39:35 PM  
I have to say, Gravity was an amazing experience. Close to a paradigm shift in movie making.
 
2013-10-13 05:40:25 PM  
I saw Captain Oscar Bait yesterday and it delivered the goods, for the most part. Hanks was decent as Phillips, though his attempt at a Vermont accent was an unwanted distraction. Outstanding performances from the Somali cast-particularly fromSolomon Barkhad Abdi and Faisal Ahmed in their portrayals of "Skinny" Muse and Najee respectively.


As far as Machete Kills, I plan in seeing this one later this week. The first one was immensely entertaining camp, and this one looks to be a thousand times more absurd. Not to mention that Sofia Vergara is sporting a farking gun bra-and is just one of a bevy of sexy femme fatales. Hell yeah, I'm there!
 
2013-10-13 05:43:30 PM  
My main takeaway from Gravity (which I loved) was that Sandra Bullock's agent has been doing her a disservice all these years casting her as a bubbly airhead.  She probably displayed more talent in that 90 minute movie than in the entire rest of her career.

Go see Machete Kills then.

I prefer Danny Trejo as a head attached to a tortise rigged with explosives, thank you.

That reminds me of the people who were upset that Pacific Rim wasn't a study in human behavier in the face of overwhelming odds, and was rather a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters as a ode to Godzilla and Ultraman.

No one was expecting Pacific Rim to be deep. It was just funny to see fanboys cream themselves over what was basically Transformers just because it was based on some obscure Japanese sci-fi subgenres.

I was sitting there 3d', seat rumbling and it still wasnt enough. Maybe if Morgan Freeman had been Houston. Maybe.

I'm sure the character could have used less of it, too.

Thank you. I'm an FX guy and I realize that plot and story and all that gay stuff is important but sound and visuals have value too and if done competently, it can make for just as a good a film as My Dinner With Andre or any other critically acclaimed boring crap.

What is it about Pacific Rim that suddenly turned Godzilla into an obscure character?

Quit kidding yourself, man. PacRim gets love because it was FUN, something those dogshiat Bayformer movies never were.
 
2013-10-13 07:16:35 PM  
Growning up with the transformers cartoons and toys I think I hate the franchise now due to watching the first 2 movies. Pacific Rim is how the action on the TF movie should've been.

AdrienVeidt: Quit kidding yourself, man. PacRim gets love because it was FUN, something those dogshiat Bayformer movies never were.


Pacific Rim was shot better than Transformers. You could tell WTF was going on, it wasn't shot in that frenetic shaky cam style and the human parts while sort of goofy, weren't nearly as painful to watch as in Transformers. So on paper, they were very similar movies butt those details made all the difference.

Cambrian: I have to say, Gravity was an amazing experience. Close to a paradigm shift in movie making.


It was a good movie and I liked it, but what paradigms were shifted?  It was a fairly standard space movie, a bit less realistic than Apollo 13 or the first 80% of 2001 but otherwise more or less in the same vein.

Was it just the 3d that impressed you?  Because there's a documentary in 3d that's like 10000000x more awesome, if significantly less creatively titled, "Space Station 3D" that might interest you in that case.

Hilarious.  It's just like Transformers and directed by that hack Del Toro.  That guy couldn't direct himself out of a paper bag, amirite?

I am with Jim C above. It was very special effecty. The end. For 20 bucks I want to be entertained Double A. No way around the price Pooky. You probably see all your 3D Imax at some obscure inexpensive and underground venue I have never heard of.

What the marketing from Machete Kills doesn't reflect is how huge Mel Gibson's part is, and he's freaking hysterical.

For me it was the level of immersion in the movie. As others have said it's the closest most people will get to being in space.
 
2013-10-13 08:40:34 PM  
So, was Sandra Bullock in space because she won tickets on the radio? Thrust is thrust you stupid ass.

But I will have to check out that documentary.

Pacific Rim gets better every time I see it...and since I got it digitally a week ago that number is growing rather rapidly.   I gather anyone that compares it to Transformers didn't actually see Pacific Rim.

As you said, it was fun.  The action was done well and you could understand what was going on.  The characters were surprisingly interesting despite the obvious fact the movie didn't dedicate a ton of time trying to explain their life story.  The comedy relief guys in Charlie Day and the other research guy were great on their own and played well off each other.  And Ron Perlman was Ron Perlman.

Really? He was as good an antagonist as Seagal was in the first pic?

Let me ask this:
Is Gravity just that abandoned scuba divers movie, but in space?   Because that's what the adds made it look like.
 
2013-10-13 09:11:15 PM  
I saw Gravity mostly for the gratuitous sex scenes.

Satanic_Hamster: Let me ask this:

More like the Earth channel with mortal terror.  It's a very, very pretty movie, with great pacing. If you want to know exactly how to spectacularly miss the point of it, I recommend the review in the New Yorker.

Way better. Gibson fully braces the roll and kind of film they were making. I bet he improved a lot of it.

Dare I say, this is the most fun he's been since Leathal Weapon.
 
2013-10-13 09:28:04 PM  
I loved Gravity as a ride.  I hadn't been to an IMAX for several years and this IMAX3D thing at my local theater was note perfect.  That said, I saw it alone.  Wife is subject to vertigo and hates the thought of it more than I hate shakycam.

I didn't have to have an astronomer tell me you can't take out communications satellites in some ping pong fashion as depicted, but that just was part of the movie plot you had to have.  I also thought Pacific Rim was a hoot.
