We've covered this many times but Inception is probably Christopher Nolan's best movie.


When your movie requires you to write a character solely to be the recipient of exposition so that your audience knows what's going on, maybe your script is a little too convoluted.

Yawn.  I didn't see anything on that list that hasn't already been shown for months on a competing site.

The Losers - If you said "Oh, here's a comic book adaptation starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, and Idris Elba in a story about a ragtag group of assassins" in 2021, people would go nuts. But The Losers, which is exactly that, was about 11 years ahead of its time.

Still haven't seen this one that everyone talks about, and that'll have to change.

Dont know why they said San Andreas was only sort of fun. Its always fun when modern technology is applied for the sole reason of realistically destroying a city

Their mobile site is putrid.

A Fish out of Water is a perfectly valid story telling device. And Inception isn't convoluted, it's vocal fans desperately want it to be so they can pretend to be super smrt.

An actual list would be to much to ask.

Instead they give you 1 or 2, make you scroll through ads to get to the next tidbit, rinse repeat.

/ close site, tldr

It's a fun movie.  Not the best, but worth the couple hours.

What's the use of these lists? If they don't have what's coming out on all the streaming services and not the ones they find the most popular, why bother?

Anaconda - Like Deep Blue Sea above, this is one of those movies that doesn't need much to sell it. Ice Cube. Jennifer Lopez. Big ass killer snake. Need more?

Could you make it good?

Eh, you're better off just putting her True Detective scene on a loop.

I wish all those websites talking about the ''stuff coming on streaming'' would only talk about the real NEW stuff, not the 20 years old movies nobody gives a fark about coming on streaming for a month.
 
2021-07-30 3:12:41 PM  
What I'm waiting  for :

Foundation
The Lord of the Rings
The book of bobba fett
Witcher anime
Cowboy Bebop

Amazon has bought a lot of cool sci fi IPs and I hope they put the ressources to produce good stuff.

I haven't been into anime for decades, unless Invincible counts, but I'm definitely going to check out the witcher prequel.

Watched Team America about a month ago, still funny.  Was kind of surprised it held up.

Inception may have been advertised as complex, but it was straightforward.  If you couldn't follow it, you were over thinking it.

An ambiguous final scene doesn't make a movie 'confusing'.

Amazon is also getting all the Evangelion reboot movies. They are releasing the 4th in early August for the first time outside of Japan.

The Foundation series novels were excellent, the original Trilogy being the only Hugo Award winner for "best all-time series." I am rather surprised that it hasn't been brought to the Silver Screen yet. Maybe Hollywood is scared it might end up like Nightfall.
