Tomb Raider reboot

But let's be honest, this is probably one of the best video game adaptions, even though this was not a good movie. I think they stayed too true to the video game. They tried to create an authentic gaming experience in a movie with some of the obstacles. I think they forgot to add in cinema elements...

73120 Special shoutout to Tyler and Blue Jackets for posting a lot this weekend. Thanks! We had one of the laziest weekends of recent memory so I was able to see a few movies, play some VR, and watch TV. Of course I can't do any of these things without posting on a thread about them. I really am wo...

73017 Source of the post The gunplay was actually really good. What gunplay? Lara had 14 opportunities to pick up guns and she never did. The other people did. They sounded good and were realistic. Lara picked up a bow and arrows instead of picking up a gun... the whole time I was watching this mov...

Annihilation (2018)

Great video that helps explain a theory about Annihilation, about 8 min long.

Ready Player One

So... if you watch the movie in Columbus, Ohio... is that considered 'meta'? You're not watching the movie, you're LIVING the movie. I wonder if theaters there are doing anything special? Assuming the movie takes place there like the book does. I have not seen anything nor heard anything about a sp...

72870 This was pretty fun. It was about 30 minutes too long though. Not sure what I would cut out of it either, tbh. I left to go to the bathroom during it and saw that there was another hour left and was pretty :o. Some of the scenes were pretty unbelievable, but it's Tomb Raider. I wasn't expecti...

In part, yes. They both wanted to die. Is why all of them were on the team to go into a suicide mission.

72419 It seems that everything immediately tries to merge with everything. The fire burning everything at the end alludes to that, but I liked the more subtle ones, like glass on the trees because its part of the sand surrounding them. I believe since it was a beach, devoid of actual plant life, th...

That does nothing but make the director sound like a pompous ass. He just explained why he made the movie difficult to understand.

Ummm... how is the Walking Dead still a thing. Its devoid of everything what made the comic book great. They've jumped the zombie shark already. Just shoot it in the head.

72484 You're splitting hairs. Him saying it was the cleaning ladies is as good as naming them. He had to have known he was giving them up by even saying that. Without giving up a hint of the cleaning ladies... you would never have the climactic confrontation that it set up. You'd have Dimitri's dea...

71162 My biggest problem: Why did Dimitri name the ladies?! He was going to die regardless and by naming them he just doomed them and the monster he risked saving. Just list random Russian names. You may want to rewatch this. Dimitri never named them... he dropped a hint as to them being the cleani...

Upcoming Netflix sci-fi movie MUTE starring Aleksander Scarsgard, Justin Theroux, Paul Rudd

Watched this over the weekend due to the cast... nothing too spectacular about it. I know Duncan Jones has a taste for telling unusual stories. This is not a sequel to his movie Moon, they happen in the same universe, as there is an Easter Egg calling back to that movie in this. Some of the themes i...

Season thoughts Overall I thought the show was pretty good. It won't be the best thing I've seen on TV this year, but I am sure it will be in the top half. The entire show looked amazing. Really sets the bar high for what you can do on TV with sets/visuals. I think the story got clunky at times and...

71823 Does that mean 1 person is copied and put into 2 sleeves? Yeah it's basically that your stack is copied and you can be in 2 different sleeves at the same time. It comes up again later and is pretty trippy. It's like both sleeves are the same person but each have their own consciousness, it is...
