Re: 2020 Movie Challenge

By my count, I've seen forty (fewer if you discount mixed-gender teams) - that accounts for one in every ten films I've seen so far this year. Like any challenge, it's just a matter of getting...

Re: 2020 Movie Challenge

I might be biased because I picked Nicolas Cage and out of the ten films I watched I liked maybe one or two of them. At least with De Niro I liked more than that. Guess I need to get more particular...

Re: 2020 Movie Challenge

I just think about what the point of the challenge is - like how it's meant to be challenging. If the idea is to try expanding one's cinematic horizons, then the question is how each of the...

Between this topic (technically two topics when you think about it) and the "great soundtrack" topic the other day, these picks are starting to seem a little...subjective. Like I guess in this case...

I took "classic" to mean a certain period in their history much like "renaissance" describes the period from The Little Mermaid until...I'm not actually sure. In any case, 1970 sounds like a good...

Re: 2020 Movie Challenge

Not sure what everyone else's definition of "classic" Disney is but since The Little Mermaid is usually cited as the beginning of their "renaissance" period, I think pretty much anything from that...

Movie Anomalies By Directors?

Re: Movie Anomalies By Directors?

I was wondering which was the bigger anomaly for Lynch, that or Dune (but then if there was more than one then it wouldn't be an anomaly). Like I thought about referring to Starman as the biggest...

Re: Best Horror Franchise

I think Evil Dead wins out simply because it has so few entries - three acclaimed entries and a passable remake - whereas most of the other big horror franchises usually consist of one revered...

What's especially funny is that he never actually says "You don't say" in the movie, that's just the vibe his mocking expression gives off.

I think people being silent to avoid horror movie monsters has been around as long as horror movies - beyond Don't Breathe and A Quiet Place, I'm not sure how much of a "craze" there's been about...

Both films were shot in Australia, so yeah.

Re: Video/Dvd rental stores missed?

Oh, yeah, how could I forget renting videogames? That was a far too efficient system to last where you could spend like $5 to rent a game that would cost up to $100 to own. I'm pretty sure you can't...
