just finished watching! i absolutely loved the sfx, they were incredible. i was a bit shocked at how the previous battles with the thing were more riveting than the final one

Very_Bad_Janet, in Hollywood Studios’ WGA Strike Endgame Is To Let Writers Go Broke Before Resuming Talks In Fall

Saying the quiet part out loud:

“The endgame is to allow things to drag on until union members start losing their apartments and losing their houses,” a studio executive told Deadline.

These studio execs are absolutely disgusting.

Very_Bad_Janet,

The execs literally sound like the villains in their movies and shows.

TawdryPorker,

Back in the day they used to use more direct methods and I bet they still would today if they could get away with it.

FfaerieOxide, in Old film you should watch: Pandora's Box (dir. G.W Pabst, 1929 - TRAILER

Pabst and Louise Brooks worked together on another film based on Tagebuch einer Verlorenen released 226 days after this one if you're interested.

I've only seen that once, a long time ago. I remember it as really depressing; is that accurate?

You're have to ask someone (besides yourself) who's seen the film. I haven't even read the book in english.

Since it's about a woman who witnesses a suicide, is raped, gets forced into a life of sexwork, and eventual husband offs himself, yeah "depressing" sounds about right. 🤔

DrGiltspur, in Darren Aronofsky To Adapt Elon Musk Biopic For A24

Looking forward to the Musk/Zuck ass-to-ass scene...

Omg.

As someone with a very visual imagination, I'm kind of hating you right now!

downpunxx, in Lionsgate Moving Forward With Henry Cavill & Chad Stahelski ‘Highlander’ Reboot As Action-Fantasy Pic Heads To AFM To Enliven A Strike-Hit Market

I am so freakin into this, and haven't been into any Highlander shit since H2

STUPIDVIPGUY, in Hollywood actor Danny Trejo will play Magellan in film ‘1521’

naming a movie/tv show after a year is a lazy convention

You ain't wrong.

Edit: Exception being if it has a subtitle, of course. I.E. 2001: A Space Odyssey.

AFKBRBChocolate, in L.A. Story (1991) Steve Martin at his finest

That really is a great movie. So silly, but also some jokes to think about. It’s also very quotable.

GCanuck, in Sir Anthony Hopkins to play man who saved 669 children (in new film).

I love that clip, brings a tear to my eyes every time.

But I just don’t see how this story will translate to an enjoyable screen experience. Still, heap more honour on that man. He deserves all of it.

roofuskit, in HBO Max was renamed Max, and Warner Bros. Discovery lost subscribers
roofuskit avatar

I am one of those subscribers. I did not leave because of the name. I left because Zaslav took an axe to a lot of the content my family used the service for. And then even if that hadn't been enough to drive us off, they jacked up the prices so they could include a bunch of horseshit reality TV.

Finkler, in Oppenheimer or Barbie first?
@Finkler@lemmy.world avatar

Oppenheimer then go to pub ;)

EmperorGormet, in Oppenheimer or Barbie first?

I think if you watch Barbie first it will take away for Oppenheimer. Longer movie would always go first IMO but especially in this case

Pons_Aelius, in Why the creators of 'Jaws' regretted making sharks the monsters

While I respect their feelings of regret. Shark fin soup has done orders of magnitude more damage than Jaws is responsible for.

Zo0, in How difficult could it be for actors and writers to make their own studios?

I don’t think the issue is the economy of it, rather politics. The current studios have so much power that they will need to fight them at every step. From marketing, distributions to IPs and licenses. If you think they can afford this battle, you gotta remember who was paying them in the first place

Yeah, writers and actors who did that would probably have a lot of difficulty getting gigs in mainstream Hollywood studios. Any actor who is already rich and doesn't care about extreme fame could easily do it, but I think a lot of rich famous actors are kind of addicted to gigantic paychecks and fame...

How big are these two guilds? Their combined power should be able to tell the money-guzzling old-guard to shove it. And them not getting gigs with the old-guard would be the point, no? Why create a new studio to then work with the old one?

The entire cast of Oppenheimer walked away from their premier and striked.

JDPoZ, in best horror movie you've ever seen?

@clitoris best of all time? Probably #Alien or #theExorcist. My personal favorite “classic?” #thething1982
My favorite “modern” horror film? Probably #ItFollows. The most critically acclaimed modern horror film? #Hereditary

@clitoris

I like kinda schlocky stuff, and I have a really hard time picking favorites, but if I HAD to pick one, it would be

Us (Jordan Peele, 2019). So well paced with a satisfying ending

Contenders (all so different)

  • Prince of Darkness and The Thing (John Carpenter)
  • Drag Me to Hell (Sam Raimi)
  • As Above, So Below
  • Let the Right One In
  • Zombi 2
hitechlowlife,

Prince of Darkness has an incredible mood even though, objectively, it is pretty shlocky.

“Suppose. What your faith has said. Is essentially correct …”

I dunno. Maybe worth another look :blobtonguewink:

JimmyJompson,

As Above, So Below is a super underrated movie. It really kind of scared the shit out of me lol.
