Movies You've only Just Watched


#1682

Let’s wait and see what the final look is, that is just a promo picture. It isn’t final.


#1683

Yeah, let’s hope he gets the movie.

I know I’m repeating myself, but it’s such a shame, because I think Geralt really could have been Mads’ career-defining role. It could have cemented him in pop-culture history.


#1684

He’s still no Mads but you’re right, I’m not holding out too much hope though. Now I’ve pictured Mads in the role he can’t compare regardless.


#1685

I’m not writing Cavill off. I like him as Superman, and I’ll definitely give the guy and the show a chance.

Just not ideally what I would have wanted going in.


#1686

That was not a promo pic, just a camera test, those are always half-assed. But yeah. Henry has such a cookie-cutter english actor’s face, he doesn’t look like central/east european at all, which is my main problem with him. Mads tho, he can easily pass as such.


#1687

You’re right that it was a camera test, but I’d say they also made it promotional when they released it to the public. They didn’t have to do that. Could’ve kept it in-house and only released something when they were perfectly happy with it. So they can’t blame fans for judging it.


#1688

This is one of the mistakes they keep making with HItman, as well: hiring youthful-looking actors for the role instead of mature-looking men with real gravitas.

(Although the biggest mistake the HItman movies made was their focus on stupid action.)


#1689

This can be said for the more talked-about Netflix movies, but some of them are pretty good. Okja and Gerald’s Game come to mind, haven’t seen Polar yet.


#1690

the biggest mistake is these movies were made, and we all must live with that knowledge


#1691

And I liked the original Hitman movie with Olyphant in cast.
The second one is garbage


#1692

There are just at two things I like about that movie.

  1. Olga Kurylenko

  2. Timothy Olyphant (bit of a man crush :joy:)


#1693

We all have them, you know who mine is. They were both extremely mediocre movies that did nothing to try and follow the feel of the games. They just used the Hitman name and look “poorly” and made two generic action movies.


#1694

I strongly agree!!!


#1695

You seen Deadwood? It’s a great show, but it may change your man crush to Ian McShane


#1696

I watched Velvet Buzzsaw. It was decent enough and worth a watch but nothing that’s going to win any awards.


#1697

Yes, and yes haha!

Cocksucker, San Francisco!


#1699

Just watched The Predator 2018 and what can I say to sum up this movie and how truly awful it is. AVP 1 & 2 are much better movies in every way. The approach to this movie have been so misplaced and misunderstood that you wonder if Shane Black set out to create a spoof movie inside the Predator universe.

50% Deadpool humor
30% Die Hard humor
20% Serious action
0% deadpan classic One liners, like “Stick Around”.

This movie have no idea what made the original great.

Ironically The original Predator was directed by John McTeirnan who also directed Die Hard. Bitterly ironic is that the man who directed 2018 was Shane Black who wrote the first one.

Predator 2018 still sucks though no matter how much meta-irony is involved.
