[QUOTE=BeardyDuck;53031909][media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-3do2pM4pM[/media] just in case people already don't know the premise: kajiu's have overrun earth. in a last ditch effort, mankind sends a spaceship to a possible new planet to settle on, when they arrive they find out that it isn't habitable, so they head back to earth with the news. turns out space travel is sort of wonky, as they arrive back to earth several hundred? thousand? years in the future, and the only one left is fuckhuge godzilla. coming onto netflix on january 17[/QUOTE] I can't stand this animation. It looks so amazingly shitty compared to 2D. It's okay when it's used sparingly, like in the Berserk movies, but when they get lazy and use it for everything it just looks horrible imo. like the new berserk anime eugh
i seriously don't get the complaints about polgyon's cgi. everybody that says it always just repeats themselves "oh it looks worse than 2d" but never actually details why it looks worse other than "it's cgi so it should be 60 fps!!!" even though it would look awful and super amateur-ish at 60 fps. [editline]7th January 2018[/editline] it's like those people that speed up shows or movies to play at 60 fps. why?
3d doesn't have any of the character or charm 2d does. it feels lifeless and it's not interesting. the fact that it is cheaper and that's why it's used comes across in spades.
They're filming a netflix series here where I live (Malta), which means it's probably set in the Middle East. Some kind of spy thriller either directed or produced by Paul Greengrass. Just informing y'all.

Today in Ridley Scott news: [URL="https://filmschoolrejects.com/merlin-saga-may-ridley-scotts-next-film/"]He might helm Disney's adaptation of the Merlin Saga.[/URL] Considering his track record for medieval/sword and sandal movies ranges from awesome to less than okay, this might be a solid fine. [URL="http://www.indiewire.com/2018/01/blade-runner-2049-sequel-ridley-scott-plans-1201914259/"]Ridley also has plans for a third Blade Runner film[/URL] Despite it, you know, flopping pretty goddamn hard at the box office, even after getting heaps of praise and being one of the best films of the whole year.
I don't know if I want Ridley Scott back in Blade Runner, but I am open to the possibility of more Blade Runner after 2049 being so good.
After Alien: Covenant I want Scott to stay for away from Blade Runner. 2049 was so good, just let it rest.
Has Scott made anything good recently? Seems like every time I hear about him or see his movies they haven't been good. Also 2049 is for a couple of BAFTAs that I hope it wins
[QUOTE=mark6789;53037606]Has Scott made anything good recently? [/QUOTE] the martian? although that film had a really nice crew on board.

[QUOTE=The_J_Hat;53037744]The Martian was probably the last one, though I have heard good things about All the Money in the World.[/QUOTE] Yeah that movie was really well made but I feel like they could used more personality and some story elements from the book.
He still seems to be a decent director but for me personally it feels like the scripts that he works with are all shit. Which is how we got Prometheus and Covenant. If the script is bad, why even bother.
David Harbour (the 'Stranger Things' guy) talks about playing Hellboy in the new reboot [url]http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/913775-david-harbour-talks-very-practical-and-action-heavy-hellboy-reboot[/url] [quote]“It was crazy. It was the hardest job I’ve ever done,” Harbor told MTV at the Golden Globes. “The action that I’m doing in the movie, the rolling around on the ground and punching — things that a 40-year-old man should not be doing — and on top of that, the tremendous amount of prosthetics and makeup, but at the end of the day we would shoot some pretty beautiful stuff. And pretty unique stuff for this type of universe. A lot of it [was] very practical, Practical monsters and practical fights — [B]not a lot of CGI.[/B]”[/quote] good also Venom is still a thing [url]http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/01/11/venom-first-look-at-tom-hardy-as-eddie-brock-and-full-brazil-comic-con-panel-video-ign-first?abthid=5a57788f6d4e569538000014[/url] [t]https://i.imgur.com/NuC2DC9.jpg[/t] [quote]At the panel, Fleisher confirmed the comics storylines Venom will be inspired by. "We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film," he said. "But our story is primarily based on the Lethal Protector and the Planet of the Symbiotes book."[/quote] there's also footage from Brazil Comic Con at the link (not footage from the actual film tho so w/e). not really getting this whole 'WE ARE VENOM' thing they're trying to push super hard lol
[QUOTE=postal;53044065] not really getting this whole 'WE ARE VENOM' thing they're trying to push super hard lol[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]Director Ruben Fleischer took inspiration for the character's portrayal from a quote in the comics: "You're Eddie Brock. I'm the symbiote. Together we are Venom."[/QUOTE] I guess that's where it came from. Anyway, I was kind of hoping it'd die in pre-production, but at least Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams have me somewhat interested
To be quite honest I'd much rather have Villeneuve at the helm of future Bladerunner movies.
[QUOTE=Gubbinz96;53044124]To be quite honest I'd much rather have Villeneuve at the helm of future Bladerunner movies.[/QUOTE] to be brutally honest I don't think there's gonna be another blade runner movie lol, and this is just yet another case of Ridley Scott being oblivious as to what bad box office returns mean for sequel prospects, like he was doing with Alien Covenants' sequel for months. Ridley seems like a hyper dude, I swear every few months I hear about him signing on to a new project (his IMDB's [url=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000631/]'projects in development'[/url] list is absurd tho ofc it's not all movies he wants to direct) or carrying on about how he has ideas for 5 more alien movies lol. Like others have said if there was just a little more quality control on the scripts he takes I might actually be excited for them all. [editline]11th January 2018[/editline] speaking of good director/bad writer issues: apparently Venom is being directed by the guy that did Zombieland. That's pretty great. Tho sadly it's not being written by the guys that did Zombieland as well, and instead the story is by [url=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003298]the guy that wrote Kangaroo Jack and Con Air and lots of other trash lol[/url], so my optimism is still pretty low.
I want Denis to do whatever his heart desires
[URL="http://deadline.com/2018/01/gambit-movie-gore-verbinski-leaves-director-1202240851/"]Gore Verbinski has dropped out of the Gambit movie.[/URL] Probably because he realized no one cares.
you'd think a gambit movie would be pretty easy to make just make a generic, teen-oriented john wick, then replace gambit's gun with card-throwing in post. i'm sure it'd look great

This shit is just cursed lol and I’m amazed Tatum is still remaining attached to the project throughout all this

I mean get a load of Knockout for example. He's like a love letter to camp gay tropes and the animators just went nuts with his expressions.

starz is making a series based on "the continental" from john wick. [url]https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/john-wick-tv-series-works-at-starz-keanu-reeves-attached-1074315[/url] (doesn't actually star keanu reeves as protag)
As long as it has Lance Reddick i'm sold
the concept feels like it could lend well to a series
