Patrick Stewart Might Reprise Jean-Luc Picard Role if Tarantino Directs 'Star Trek'

Not real news and doesn't have a chance of becoming reality but I sure would watch an R-Rated Star Trek film directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Patrick Stewart.  DRILLING AND MANLINESS DRILLING AND MANLINESS

I haven't watched any of Saulnier's movies though they are on my list of movies to watch (at some point).

If you haven't watched Get Out, what the fuck is wrong with you? GO WATCH IT NOW. It was fantastic from start to finish and it will not win any of the Oscars it deserves to, such as Best Actor.

irony of that post with what i just posted in the IT thread

Get Out was a fine movie.

but frankly I finished it thinking "well, I've watched Get Out now, yay."

It does not deserve oscars. The movie required very little actual acting. The missing dude was better than the lead.

I disagree with what you said. (Not about Skaarsgaard but about Get Out not requiring acting).

That's strange, the music for that popped into my head just the other night randomly.  Compelled me to re-watch the final epic end/fight sequence to the film on youtube, which has the really over the top dramatic score.

I wonder how a "Spiderman the film - written and directed by Jodie Foster" would look like...

Quote
Jodie Foster takes aim at big-budget studio movies, telling Radio Times magazine that they could spell doom for Hollywood in the way they shape the expectations of American audiences.

“Going to the movies has become like a theme park,” she told the magazine, according to the Telegraph. “Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking — you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth.”

“It’s ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world,” Foster continued. “I don’t want to make $200 million movies about superheroes.”

Foster made it clear that if she were to direct a superhero movie, it would have to be one with a compelling story and character at its core. Rather than doing a brainless action film, it would have to be about a character with a “really complex psychology.”

The Oscar-winning actress has shifted her focus to directing in recent years, most recently taking on an episode of the Netflix sci-fi anthology “Black Mirror.” In the interview, Foster described a “lack of respect” for directors in Hollywood that accepts only the “untouchable” likes of Steven Spielberg or Clint Eastwood.

Restoration is a perfectly valid school of magic!

She's not wrong. And I say that as a big fan of superhero movies. The studios are really fucking themselves long term by letting places like Netflix and Amazon make and stream the smaller movies that used to be schedule fillers. The superhero bubble can't last forever.

I don't love every Michael Mann movie but damn do I love Last of the Mohicans. It is like the perfect combination of a chick-flick romance film and an action film.

Recent Netflix horror B-movie recommendations: Creep 2 (but watch the first Creep if you haven't) and It Follows (way better than I thought it'd be).

Showed my boy Princess Bride which is one of my all time favorite films and books. He declared it "really weird" but "awesome." So I guess I'll take that. 

I forget how god damned good Cary Elwes is in that movie even though I've seen it 50 times or so.

I was talking to some gamers from Europe on Teamspeak the other night, and they had never heard of the Princess Bride. How the hell do you describe how awesome hat film is? I wound up posting a youtube of the trailer at them.

Princess Bride is basically a perfect movie.  I rank it up there with Casablanca as a movie that pretty much everyone likes because it's got everything -- humor, romance, adventure, the whole deal.

The trick that it pulls off that almost nothing else does is to both deconstruct the genre it's part of AND reconstruct it lovingly at the same time. That's goddamn genius.

I watched that one recently and agree, it was like Blair Witch but not boring.

One I watched even more recently and recommend more highly: "Don't Kill It".  Just wonderful goofy bloody fun with Dolph Lundgren as a demon hunter and a LOT of people getting killed by the demon over the course of the movie.

Went to see 'Ghost Stories' with the wife.  Excellent British cast doing the age old Hammer standby of "3 ghost stories tied together with an anorexic main story".

It was fucking brilliant and really, really took me back.  Also, quite successfully scary, even though Jump Scares were mostly the order of the day.

I'm not sure what it would do for you Cousins across the water, but I've had a good night.

Hotel Artemis has a lot of ideas, but doesn't really deliver on them. As little as there is in the trailer, those are the great moments in the film. Solid premise, wet noodle execution. Also it takes place in a boring, generic cyberpunk future for no reason.

Wait until it's free on some streaming service.

Out of Curiosity: Any of you folks tried doing Moviepass, yet?

Edit: I'm using it.  Outside of them screwing me over on a promotion and having no customer support, it is saving me money and making it easier for me to decide to delay coming home for a couple hours to see mediocre films.  I still expect them to go belly up soon.  They're hemorrhaging money.

I've been thinking about getting moviepass but I would probably need to get a pass for my wife, too, and then it starts getting into "do we have a babysitter lined up?"  My friends and my parents use it and they are happy with it.

Also, I don't have a smart phone, and isn't that a requirement?
