I specifically heard it pronounced that way once, in addition to the more obvious way. I thought it was weird but otherwise plausible. Guess Ill try to find something...

Cinema Gimmickery (IMAX, 3D, 4DX, 270 Screens etc)

Re: Cinema Gimmickery (IMAX, 3D, 4DX, 270 Screens etc)

Not a fan. Honestly the main reason I consider any kind of IMAX thing (it's LIEMAX at the nearest theater, but I digress) is so it'll be loud enough that I won't hear other rude moviegoers around me...

Yeah, not quite a record but way up there, and probably the fastest for one of the Oscar ones. I've learned over the years which things to avoid during the recording to help speed things up, and you...

This is off-topic but since we don't usually do threads for the tech awards: man, the makeup people really did some great, subtle little things to make Charlize Theron look like Megyn Kelly. There's...

High Fidelity series

Re: High Fidelity series

I can kinda see this working. The movie was insanely quotable but it worked because the characters were well-realized and it was entertaining just watching them argue and kill time. That's a very...

Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

Re: Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

I don't even really understand how The Birth of a Nation would qualify. That question makes me think we're on totally different pages about what so-bad-it's-good means.

Re: Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

Yes, understood. But most of the so-bad-they're-good cult classics have obvious technical flaws, too, that add to the effect. It's almost impossible for a major studio film not to be fairly...

Well, if the reviewer is good, they'll illuminate things about the film that hadn't been noticed. Trivia, references, or techniques that had the desired emotional effect without the viewer realizing...

Re: Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

Yeah, in addition to the comedy thing, there's production quality, too. This is a major Hollywood production, too, which is another thing that gets in the way of so-bad-it's-good.

Anyway, it's...

Re: I wish more people would write reviews

I agree that reviews which are just a list of likes and dislikes without elaboration do not add much. But then, writing reviews is one of the ways people get better at unpacking why they like or...

I think Mahomes might be a tougher version of it, but this is a good point even so. Mahomes, as good as he's been the last two weeks, was facing two pretty bad pass defenses and SF has definitely had...

Re: I wish more people would write reviews

Strong second on people worrying about writing quality. That's not a huge concern. It's more about the angle, and frankly, the way you get better is just by doing it! I'm a tad embarrassed by some of...

Yeah, what a weird season for Green Bay. I think they got as far as they reasonably could have with what they had. Tennessee, too.

Yeah, this is the style of the show (both seasons). It's the same show. If you don't like the music I'm afraid you're in for a lot more of it.

Re: Am I the only one who didn't like Spider-Man: Homecoming???

I like that it didn't follow the standard story template. Pretty good, not great, but definitely an example of a more inventive MCU film all things considered.

That's it for the Titans' amazing run. Still a great year for them. Hard not to root for, and they played pretty well today, too. Offense was decent, Tannehill had a good game, just seemed like KC...

That Mahomes run before halftime was absurd. He didn't even look interested in scrambling at all, then he just stopped on a dime before going out of bands and took off.
