Movie Thread

I’m surprised that they’re not making it into a Netflix or HBO miniseries for this reason


#122

TBF 3 hour long movies are becoming more and more acceptable. it’s clear they don’t DO as well as the standard hour and thirty minutes but there’s definitely market AND appreciation for a well crafted film.


#123

Taking one book and turning it into 2-3 movies is pretty doable though. Not sure Dune is that book though.


#124

As far as fitting the plot in (let’s leave production budget for another discussion) the SciFi miniseries of Dune did well. 3.5 theatrical with a 4.5 hour extended cut and you could manage. Obviously, 10 hours on HBO or another premium channel would be the better format.

I am fine with Dune as GOT in space so long as its bullshit we’re telling a producer to get funding. Dune has politics and backstabbing, yeah, but the heart of the book is decidedly elsewhere. Not a lot of Jungian trips in GOT.

branching off topic to say that the new rlm han solo video is VERY COOL


#126

they still have empty space on the wall

Netflix

Altered carbon is a bladerunner/total recall ish kinda show. Very well made world and the characters fit in nicely. Dolby vision makes it stunning to watch.

In my insomnia I watched Bright, fast forwarded through the first part, silly movie.

The AO is really bad, creepy, weird. Sometimes so odd that I could not believe my eyes. Like in the final episode when they started dancing some magical dance to calm the school shooter down…


#128

#129

I like altered carbon so far. (1 ep in)


#130

I dunno, I have confidence in those two. If anyone can drive Star Wars into the ground once and for all it’s them.


#133

Will exist outside all original and Rian Johnson trilogies

So not including The Force Awakens?


#134

I think original means the numbered episodes, 1 through 9 (and whatever future additions may come). By Rian Johnson trilogy, they mean the new trilogy Johnson was given after completing The Last Jedi. He’s working on a brand new trilogy now, apparently.


#135

Fuck trilogies tho

Why not standalone Star Wars adventures with rando smugglers or bounty hunters (e: solo doesn’t count as rando)

Where’s my Boba Fett movie ffs


#136

I want a daytime soap opera set in the old republic. I will settle for nothing less.


#137

The Real Housewives of Naboo


#138

the first couple of seasons are GOT are almost straight off the page. they’re legit good tv.


#139

so they’re like zach snyder’s watchmen

if the source material is good and you basically storyboard based on the books then of course its gonna be good


#140

lmao no.
