2020.05.06 22:07 pathetic_goose I've been watching movies every night (almost) since the shutdown. Here they are ranked from best to worst, with a little review for each. The total count is 39 so far!
First off, I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe at home. If you’re like me (that is, currently unemployed and demotivated to hell), you’re probably watching a lot of movies. My sister and I watch one every night (aside from Sunday, reserved for Westworld), so I started to keep track. Here’s a list of each one so far; I’ve scored each using the four star method, with the lowest score being half a star, and based my ranking on how much I enjoyed the film, irrespective of how “good” the movie actually is. For example, Tremors is a cult hit that some of my favorite reviewers recommend, but I found it quite dry and poorly paced. So, with that in mind, here are the movies, ranked from worst (in my opinion) to best.
Spoiler alert for literally everything.
The worst movies we saw:
King Kong (2005) – 0.5 out of 4 stars
Anyone who remembers loving this film fifteen years ago (I mean, I did) seriously needs to watch it today. I’ve never witnessed a film so overstuffed with content, yet so shallow and vapid. The editing is an unparalleled nightmare, with cuts so fast they started to cross my eyes. An utterly exhausting experience and true premonition of what was to come of Peter Jackson’s downfall with the Hobbit franchise. This is where it all started to crumble.
2. The Bee Movie (2007) – 0.5 out of 4 stars
Jerry Seinfeld’s wealth and influence is the only explanation for what is surely one of the worst high-budget, Hollywood animated films of the twenty-first century. Tons of dry, adult humor that would soar over parents’ heads, let alone their kids, and a plot that blends a metaphor for the monotony of regular life with nonsensical kid-logic where a Bee can flirt with a human. It wasn’t even so-bad-it’s-good; the memes do this movie way too much justice.
3. Guns Akimbo (2019) – 0.5 out of 4 stars
An edgelord director makes a cheap VOD rip-off of John Wick and drags Daniel Radcliff down with him. There are almost no positives here, what with a metric ton of lame “gamer” jokes, terrible editing, inconsistent sound design, and bad acting all around. If this were a college student’s project, I would be so impressed, but it feels more like a goth teenager from 2010 made it in their back yard. This premise is wasted on a few decent jokes related to putting on pants with guns bolted to someone’s hands. Overall, I shame-walked my way out of this movie with a bad taste in my mouth.
4. Into the Grizzly Maze (2015) - 0.5 out of 4 stars
Jaws with a bear. James Marsden. Thomas Jane. Billybob Thorton. Direct to streaming. Base Adobe After Effects plugins. A greenscreen bear. Watch literally anything else. Yes, I paid to rent it. No, I’m not proud.
5. Dangerous Lies (2020) - 0.5 out of 4 stars
Another one to fill up the Netflix servers. A dull mystery, like if Knives Out was pumped full of Quaaludes and half the cast disappeared. The most famous actress they got is from the show Riverdale, and they name drop her in the title of the trailer on YouTube, if that tells you anything. The screenwriter is a sheltered fool with no understanding of how laws work and the story feels like the dramatization of a college student’s short story in their Composition 1 class, where there are some ideas at play but they still have to, you know, learn how to write. Generally embarrassing for all parties involved, especially anyone who watched it.
The still-bad-but-not-horrendous reviews:
The Golden Compass (2007) – 1 out of 4 stars
Tons of money, Daniel Craig, and Nicole Kidman couldn’t save this poor man’s version of The Chronicles of Narnia if it tried, and boy did it try. This is a case of the movie seemingly getting the source material right, and that being the wrong decision, considering it’s really, really stupid. Sure, the anti-organized religion themes are pretty cool for a kid’s movie, but the talking animals make zero sense in the story and have fuck all to do with anything that matters. The rules are unclear, the stakes are low, and ultimately, it all feels like a waste of time.
2. Underwater (2020) – 1 out of 4 stars
Ah, another Alien clone. Just kidding, this movie isn’t even as good as most clones (looking at you, Life). The movie offers about three seconds to the viewer before the plot literally explodes and pushes the “story” along. Remember meeting the crew in Alien, and how it takes forever for someone to die, but when they do, it sucks because you liked them? This movie was asleep during that part. It just goes and goes, meaningless, nameless characters die and die, and the monsters are cheap looking until the Cthulhu reveal, who’s the villain just because (this is how I assume the movie was pitched).
3. Event Horizon (1997) – 1 out of 4 stars
People love this movie, and this was my second viewing. How it’s a cult classic is beyond me. There are a few nice practical and CGI shots (also a ton of bad CGI, but it was the nineties), and some cool, weird set design, but otherwise, the plot is boring and predictable. My sister called it “It in space” which I think is apt, considering the evil force on the ship acts like Pennywise for some reason. Also, the famous the blood orgy? The Hell world? It makes up about twenty seconds of the hour and forty-minute runtime and is as tame as Sunday afternoon brunch. Honestly, this is another King Kong where people have faded memories and don’t remember the real movie, which, may I remind you, was directed by the genius behind the Resident Evil film franchise.
4. The Trust (2015) – 1 out of 4 stars
Talented directors with real skill behind the camera, great lighting, and beautiful cinematography; all of it for nothing, because the script is absolutely terrible. Poor Elijah Wood: he gets to work with Nic Cage, who, for the first time I’ve ever seen, is completely phoning it in. This could have been a wonderful black comedy, and it tries to be, except it’s shot like a spinoff of the Jason Bourne series. Everything is so miserable and serious, so flat and joyless; after thirty minutes, I realized that no one has any idea what their character motivation is. Random things happen and we’re supposed to believe it. What a waste.
5. Tremors (1990) – 1.5 out of 4 stars
God, I wanted to love this. I love practical, low-budget effects and a big goofy monster. I love the premise, the small-town townsfolk, the wooden acting. But honestly, this movie was too boring and joyless during any scene not involving one of the worm monsters. There were some awesome and creative sequences, but ultimately, I realized I couldn’t care less about any of the characters due to the weak script and dialogue. As a result, the movie felt four hours long. I was genuinely disappointed with this one.
6. The Simpsons Movie (2007) – 1.5 out of 4 stars
Again, when was the last time you actually sat down and watched this movie? The Simpsons is my favorite animated television show and featured some of the best comedy writing for the small screen in history, period. I quote lines almost every day. But the movie was edited hyper-fast, and while filled with a lot of good jokes, most of them felt like they were written in a vacuum. The story and comedy don’t gel at all, instead opting for two separate trains of thought. There are twenty-minute episodes from 1999 of the show that tell a better, more meaningful tale than the feature film, and that’s a tragedy.
7. Killer Workout (1987) – 2 out of 4 stars
This is a terrible film, made by a pervert who wanted to get hot young women into workout clothes, and have a killer who murders people with a giant safety pin (is that some kind of pun?). For all intents and purposes, it’s disgusting; but watching this D-level, horny director make this movie just for an excuse to jerk it in the editing bay is a spectacle to behold. Many belly laughs were had during our screening, but it’s hard to really recommend this unless you adore awful, awful filmmaking.
8. Samurai Cop (1991) – 2 out of 4 stars
Move over The Room. See you in hell, Troll 2. This movie makes those look Oscar-worthy. The only reason it has a lower score is because, despite being made by a bunch of incompetent jokers with mismatched cameras, barely any sound equipment, and the worst actors ever assembled, it can drag its feet quite a bit. This was my second viewing, and I have to say, I did become a bit bored. But if you’ve never watched it, it’s free with Amazon Prime, so what are you waiting for? Also, if anyone knows the names of literally any character, please let me know; that’s still a mystery to me.
9. Onward (2020) – 2 out 4 stars
Another safe installment from the immense talents over at Pixar. I was pretty let down by this movie, which had an interesting premise (also a very good ending) and good actors involved. But ultimately, the story is just Finding Nemo again, which, at the time, was told better, had more at stake, and left a long-lasting impact on cinema as a whole. All Onward is going to do is fade into Disney+ obscurity, despite the breathtaking animation, which is some of the best in the studio’s history. Seriously, watch the scene where the older brother drifts his van in front of the school, it looks incredible.
10. Stuber (2019) – 2 out of 4 stars
Movies like this usually get crap critic scores and great user ones. Was is a masterclass in storytelling? No. Did it have the best jokes I’ve ever heard? No. Was it a well-meaning, decently acted, and funny little adventure? Damn right. Sometimes you just want a good time, and this movie can give it to you. It’s nothing amazing, and it’s not horrible, but if you like Kumail Nanjiani, then hey, you’ll probably like this too. Also, Dave Bautista was pretty fun throughout as well.
11. Vivarium (2020) – 2 out of 4 stars
If this had been a half-hour long shot film, it would have been perfect. Good casting, a brilliant premise, and interesting visual style art marred by a director who has zero ideas on how to expound upon it all to create a feature film. Instead, he tries to distract his audience with a few new mysteries to solve, which end up as solution-less time-filler in order to get to the original short film’s obvious ending, which is spoiled by some nonsense arthouse symbolism about birds. Its deceptive how bad this movie actually is once the credits role; the only reason it scores so high is because of how good the first act is.
Now for the pretty good reviews
Wish Upon (2017) – 2.5 out of 4 stars
I can see your jaws dropping right about now, so rest assured, this movie sucks. But it was written by what seems like a two hundred-year old man trying to understand millennials, and it’s so accidentally hilarious I have to tell you all to give it a try. It’s the least scary teen-scream flick in a long time and the ending had me jumping out my seat, roaring with laughter. It’s shot like an anti-smoking advertisement, will dull, flat light and no colors to speak of. The actors are as equally bad as the script; I don’t know what directors see in Joey King that I don’t, but she makes one of the least likable protagonists in a horror film to date.
2. 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) – 2.5 out of 4 stars
I know, I know, your jaws are still on the ground. This VOD sequel to the totally underwhelming and dull original features several plain teenagers scuba diving in an underwater cave system, with a blind great white shark on their tail (yay, more puns). The acting is atrocious, there’s a scene where a fish literally screams at them underwater, and they have an imaginary comms system that somehow lets them all yammer on throughout the movie while also diving. But I watched this as a double feature with Underwater, and this was so much more fun in comparison. Lots of schlocky deaths, stupid scares, and every law of physics broken, which makes this a good popcorn flick to watch with friends (especially during a pandemic).
3. Color Out of Space (2019) – 2.5 out of 4 stars
I love The Thing, like I’m sure you all do. And this was a pretty good homage to the John Carpenter-era of eighties horror films. It even gets the cosmic horror elements (mostly) right. But this is one of the only times where I’d recommend not casting batshit insane Nic Cage for your movie. He actually detracts from the otherwise shocked and terrified family members who help ground the emotional core of the script. He seems to be off in his own world on this one, which ends up making the family dynamic disjointed rather than relatable. There are some true horror moments (mom and baby fused together, ew) that I’ll remember for a long time, but it does fall a bit short to the classics with hindsight.
4. The Rocketeer (1991) – 3 out of 4 stars
I’m twenty-five and have never seen this movie. This is a criticism of my parents, of course, who probably didn’t see it either since it was a flop at the time. But what a wonderful action adventure for any age, with great practical effects, and a fun story featuring our hapless, aloof hero fighting a secret Nazi spy who’s also a movie star. He screws up his relationship with Jennifer Connelly and has goes through daring feats to win back her affection. It’s funny, charming, and warm; I mean, what makes you get all soft and fuzzy like mobsters teaming up with the FBI to kill Nazis? I miss this Disney!
5. Sky High (2005) – 3 out of 4 stars
My sister begged to watch this one night. “When’s the last time you saw it?” she said. Over and over. I heard the premise; I thought it was stupid. I was sort of right, but the purposely cheesy performances from everyone, and seeing Kurt Russel and Bruce Campbell as lame superheroes, was actually really entertaining and charming. The plot was obvious but well-paced, and the director seemed to be doing a Sam Raimi thing (seriously, every shot is a pushed-in Dutch angle, like an Evil Dead for kids) which was a lot of fun. Honestly, I was shocked I enjoyed it as much as I did.
6. American Animals (2018) – 3 out of 4 stars
This was a really interesting take on the true-story genre, by having the real people interviewed and spliced together with the actors. It felt like a long episode of a docuseries, and that isn’t a complaint. Really well acted, great story, and good direction come together to make a fascinating true crime movie about four losers who try to steal millions of dollars’ worth of rare books. Evan Peters was perfect in his role and should be in more feature films. The only issue, for me and my sister, was that it ends up a little dry towards the end. It lacks that energy and excitement that would otherwise award it a higher score in my book.
Really good reviews:
Robocop (1987) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
Does it get any more eighties than this? Blood and gore, a stop-motion robot that makes tiger sounds and falls down a flight of stairs, crime fighting one-liners, a toxic goo man exploding; it’s just the best. This was, of course, not my first viewing, but my sister was giggling through the whole screening like a child. And its hard not to; this is the quintessential action movie of that era. The plot is simple and easy to understand, the bad guys are literal cartoon characters, and everything feels like it had a bump of cocaine before hitting the set. If I have any real complaints, I do think the tone wavers between having fun and being super dark, and that can alienate some viewers, so I can’t quite give it a perfect four. Sorry everyone.
2. Deep Blue Sea (1999) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
I love bad shark movies, and every time I watch this one, I make up the same story: a studio went to the director and said, “Hey, here’s a bunch of money, makes something like Jaws for the summer, it’ll make a shitload of money. Here’s a treatment script and all the budget you need. Do whatever you want.” And boy howdy did they do whatever the fuck they wanted. So many bait and switch moments to subvert our expectations, like Sam Jackson getting eaten mid-speech, or the lead heroine attempting to save they day and being eaten alive pointlessly in the last five minutes. If you’ve never watched it, you just have to. Don’t you want to see LL Cool J kill a giant shark in a flooded kitchen with a zippo lighter? Of course you do.
3. Prisoners (2013) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
Although it doesn’t fully explore the depths of each mystery, this is a brilliantly acted, tense thriller from the incredible Denis Villeneuve, who since joining Hollywood simply hasn’t directed a bad movie. Move the hell over JJ Abrams, we got a real storyteller here, one who doesn’t fancy himself a great writer, instead taking good scripts and elevating them into even better movies. This is a great, dark story that tackles the unending grief of having a child abducted, and the lengths you’d go in order to get them back.
4. The Invitation (2015) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
A claustrophobic, anxiety-inducing thriller starring a relatively unknown cast of actors (aside from the two male leads). The director utilizes one location with such skill, and gives really strong motivation for the protagonist to move this horror story that uses social anxiety, grief, and coping with loss to inspire scares. This was another not-first time for me, and I loved it just as much if not more. If I had to pick at it, I’ll say that some of the side characters (the friend group) could have used a little more fleshing out before everything starts to get weird.
5. La La Land (2016) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said about this one, but I loved it just the same. I remember seeing it in theaters, my musical-loving girlfriend dragging me along, and me dreading it. I even snuck a beer into the theater to try and deal. Four years later, everything that was wonderful about it still is: the music is brilliant; the chemistry between the leads is exceptional. It’s a typical Hollywood-jerking-itself-off story, sure, but I enjoyed the themes of following your dreams becoming something you weren’t prepared for and having to sacrifice one kind of happiness for another. The ending is solid too. Quick question though – is this a musical, in the true sense of the word? My girlfriend says no. And after watch Hairspray (which I hated), that seems to be the case. Please let me know.
6. Bad Education (2020) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
The best Hugh Jackman performance since Prisoners. A gripping, dark, and hilarious true story written by a guy who watched it unfold in person, this movie details the absurdity of embezzlement through a wealthy Long Island education system. The dialogue was slick, the acting perfect, and the direction actually very empathetic to all of the characters. It was a rare case of the film not really taking any side; almost bipartisan, like a documentary. This is rare for me in that I wish it was a little bit longer; I was hoping for more scenes of the aftermath, maybe the future, but what we got works just as well.
7. Looper (2012) – 3.5 out of 4 stars
A great interpretation of the future blended with the fun of 20th century organized crime. Rian Johnson has proven with Knives Out that The Last Jedi was some kind of fluke, because he really is a good storyteller. And, since people only rip his writing abilities, he’s a great director as well. This movie could have fallen into a million cliché traps, but it doesn’t; it has its own vision and voice, and in a world with endless science fiction trash, it’s very refreshing. I can’t call it perfect; Bruce Willis has a scene that basically tells the audience to ignore the time travel stuff because it doesn’t make sense; I respect this, but wouldn’t it be great if the emotional core of the script could make more sense? But bonus points for good humor, Rian’s got that down (aside from in Star Wars).
There Will Be Blood (2007) – 4 out of 4 stars
One of the most modern and compelling westerns I’ve ever seen (although no gunslingers here). Of course, Daniel Day Lewis is to thank for bringing the character Daniel Plainview to life; watching a hardworking, blue-collar miner become a twisted, wealthy, and ultimately soulless oil tycoon is breathtaking. The first half hour of the movie has almost no dialogue at all, and as time begins to pass and the characters develop, the dialogue that emerges is nearly unrivaled in today’s cinema (except maybe with The Lighthouse). The ending is worth the price of admission (which is free, if you have Netflix), and once you’re done with you’re screening, you too will be hollering “I am a false profit, and God is a superstition!”
2. Fargo (1996) – 4 out of 4 stars
Sarcastic and witty, this is the definitive Cohen Brothers screenplay. The performances (and accents) are now as iconic as Steve Buscemi being jammed into a woodchipper. The setup of the film, and lack of any kind of explanation for why William H. Macy is such a scumbag, only makes the story feel more manic, more off-the-wall. Everything is fine-tuned to make you laugh, while also intrigued as to what will become of all these pedantic, silly people. If by some miracle you haven’t already, give it a watch.
3. Rango (2011) – 4 out of 4 stars
It is absolutely, positively, fucking criminal that no one ever talks about this film. Much like everyone here, I’d never seen it before (free on Amazon Prime), and after three minutes I was hooked. The visual style, the cinematography, the bizarre photorealistic characters; it’s perfect. It’s oozing with style, with an amazing script jammed with jokes and a smooth-talking Johnny Depp as the lead, along with a great ensemble class. I’d wager to say that this is one of the best, if not the best, 3D animated film of the last decade. Hell, of the twenty-first century. This movie is what would happen if Disney or Pixar grew some balls and did something different for a change (whoops, controversial!)
4. Whiplash (2014) – 4 out of 4 stars
Damian Chazelle is a master of his craft; this much is clear from his debut fucking feature. Seriously, this movie has an intensity to it, and it achieves that by hijacking the spirit of jazz and injecting it with liquid stress. I normally hate Miles Teller (this is completely a personal judgement), but he was perfect for the role. I totally bought him as this young, doughy-faced college sophomore desperate for approval in a world that could give a shit about him. J.K. Simmons rides that line of being hammy and terrifying, and the direction is sublime. Chazelle is one to watch in the next few decades for sure.
5. The Witch (2015) – 4 out of 4 stars
So, I’ve seen this like five times now. It’s still amazing. What a first feature; I’m sure Robert Eggers thought, “Yeah, let’s make it a period piece with era-correct speech and fill it with themes of abandoning belief and existential dread, people will love it.” Spoilers though, only weirdos like you and me do. Our spouses and significant others look over at us, shake their heads, and say, “What the fuck is this?” That won’t stop me from singing its praises though; this is the ideally structured horror movie, with a captivating cast, script, and vision of survival in the seventeenth century. Really makes you think that being quarantined isn’t so bad after all (unless you're trapped with Black Phillip).
6. The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) – 4 out of 4 stars
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable horror movies I’ve seen in a long time; it’s so bizarre, in fact, I’m pretty sure no one liked it or even bothered to see it. It made some pathetic number, way below its budget, during a short theatrical run, and then faded away into A24’s catalog. But I beg you, if you like psychological horror, slow burns, great writing, and being unsettled, please see this film. The dialogue is delivered by each actor robotically, in this unnatural tone that at first seems like a mistake; it could be easy to dismiss this as “weird” by non-horror fans. The film only becomes more nightmarish as the story builds towards its climax. Also, points for such an utterly strange plot that, for once in a horror movie, doesn’t feel like a retread of other, better films.
7. Thoroughbreds (2017) – 4 out of 4 stars
Talk about some of the best dialogue in the last decade. This movie is so simple, and both lead actresses are stunning in their portrayals of two complete sociopaths. Anton Yelchin gives his final performance and he steals every scene he’s in (as usual), and I was really impressed with just how sad his character made me feel. This loser selling drugs to teens while he’s in his mid-twenties, desperately working for something better doing the only thing he knows how. It’s really fun to see his tough guy persona melt in front of our leads, who despite looking like innocent high school girls, are planning a literal murder. If you want a thriller with great characters and gut-punching twists, this is the movie for you.
8. Booksmart (2019) – 4 out of 4 stars
Oh, happy day, a comedy that (almost) doesn’t star washed up SNL alumni (Jason Sudeikis gets a pass for being married to the director). Look, I’m not saying that every poorly directed, badly lit, bland film featuring endless improve from people that used to be funny can’t be good, but they usually aren’t. Instead, this movie takes the plain and simple coming of age story and tells it again, this time with millennials and stellar writing. And the best part? You don’t know any of the main character’s actors. They aren’t Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler. You don’t have to pretend they're real people and not movie stars. The leads are hysterical, their adventure is unique and filled with heart, and all the supporting cast are incredible. This isn’t just funny; it’s earnest, and it actually means something.
9. Vampire’s Kiss (1989) – 4 out of 4 stars
Okay, okay, here me out: you know that meme with Nic Cage, where his eyes are bugging out? How about that clip where he recites the alphabet in full while shouting at his therapist? Yeah, that’s this fucking movie. Never in my life, not since The Evil Dead 2, have I fallen in love with something so funny, so ahead of its time, that rides the line between utter garbage and secret masterpiece. And just like The Evil Dead 2, this is as masterpiece. You got Nic Cage doing what sounds like a Donald Trump impression, mechanical bats, Nic Cage eating a live cockroach, Nic Cage covered in blood with fake vampire fangs and a wooden stake begging New Yorkers to kill him. This movie was a failure when it was made, but I swear to god, it was made thirty years too early. Or maybe I’m just crazy.
10. Cop Car (2015) – 4 out of 4 stars
Add this to the list of great movies no one has ever seen but is actually streaming on Netflix. I clicked on this on a total whim, knowing nothing about it, and was beyond surprised. Every shot looks like it could have been principle photography for No Country for Old Men, except the two lead actors are literally children under the age of twelve. Now, normally, kids are terrible in films, between a lack of acting ability, and writers that don’t understand them. This movie nails how kids actually think. It’s not that they’re stupid, they’re learning; and on the way, they develop their own kid logic that, during this film, is enough to get them to steal a cop car in an empty field. Kevin Bacon is a wonderful villain, and the story was so twisty that I couldn’t even guess ahead. Please give this more love, it deserves it.
Jeez, that was a lot. Thanks for reading everyone! I apologize if I ragged on a movie you like, remember that this is just my opinion and you're allowed yours as well. Stay safe!

2020.04.14 19:25 netneutrality101 My ranking of the Terminator films + the tv show
Ok just one little thing to get out of the way I pretty much hate both Dark Fate and Genesys but it's perfectly fine if you enjoyed them, the great thing about movies is they are subjective and that no matter which movie or timeline you choose to follow we're all still fans of the same franchise, with that out of the way let's begin. also side note let's leave politics out of it shall we.
#1. The Terminator - I know most people put T2 at the top but for me its the original, I love the fact it's pretty much a tech noir sci fi horror flick with some action bits thrown in for good measure, the soundtrack literally embodies the tone and premise of the film with it being a movie about a killer robot from the future, the story unlike everything that came after keeps itself simple and emotionally raw, the acting also feels the most real out of the series, the only flaws I can see in the film are a few outdated special effects like the dummy head in the bathroom scene, I love this film with all my heart.
#2. T2 - I don't think many will disagree when I say T2 is pretty much a masterpiece in filmmaking, this film pretty much takes the plot of the original, adds a new subplot about stopping judgment day and flips everything on it's head, I may prefer Arnold as the evil Terminator but he still knocks it outta the park as the hero, Robert Patrick is also one intimidating mf without having to be built like a brick house, Linda is badass and well written, and Edward also does a great job of showing hints of the man John is destined to become, the action is also way bigger but thankfully it still feels grounded unlike some of the later films, the story is also amazing but unlike the first it's not as simple, all in all T2 is a hell of a movie.
#3. Salvation - ok ok hear me out, this film definitely has it's problems but it also has a lot going for it as well, let's start off with the negatives, through most of the film the machines like to throw John around like he's a rag doll and because of this you never really feel like he's in actual danger of dying, the film also conflicts with the first three films a little bit in that most of it takes place during the day, the daytime scenes also from a visual standpoint look boring as hell, I'm not a fan of Bale's choice of voice for John either, the ending also feels pretty rushed, on to the positives, the sound design is simply amazing, this film probably has the second best special effects out of the whole franchise, when the machines aren't throwing people around the action is actually pretty damn good, the casting was for the most part great, Anton Yelchin looks, sounds, and acts just like a teenage Michael Biehn, and despite his voice I thought Bale did good as John, this film does a great job of showing how John became the leader and inspired others, I'm also glad Jonathan Nolan when he was doing rewrites remembered one fundamental element of John's character from T2, his humanity and unwillingness to sacrifice human life, and it's shown perfectly when he disobeys command's orders to help bomb Skynet and instead tries to inspire others to follow him and give him time not only to save his father but also all those prisoners as well, this John is also very proactive, he's the one who saves Kyle and the prisoners, he's the one who blows up Skynet central and halts production on the T-800s, and with the help of Marcus stops the prototype T-800, Salvation despite it's flaws is still pretty good in my opinion.
#4. the tv show - pros - the acting from the main characters are great, the character development and character building are great, good action and practical effects, a lot of interesting ideas like John Henry and rouge Terminators developing freewill, and last but not least Cameron is just an interesting and well thought out character, cons - ends on a cliffhanger, the cgi was mostly terrible, too many filler episodes in the second season, a ton of continuity errors with ages and dates, the timeline in the second season becomes needlessly convoluted and impossible to follow, I like this show a lot but for me it's kind of a mixed bag.
#5. T3 - the best way to describe this film is it's T2 but watered down, besides Arnold and Loken the casting was just kinda ok ish, the constant jokes and gags get on my nerves quite a bit, the dialogue is the 3rd worse in the series only with T5 and T6 beating it out, the CRS fight scene between the T-850 and TX has literally no weight and instead feels like a videogame, John is basically a wimp and idiot for most of the film, and the film just like Dark Fate and Genesys pretty much rehashes what came before, the positives - the film despite mostly being a rehash at least helps to lead into the direction most of us wanted aka the future war, and even though it makes the subplot about trying to stop judgment day from T2 moot it still respects and preserves the plot of the original film and main plot of the 2nd film which were about protecting John's existence, when he's not cracking jokes Arnold is great as the Terminator, thankfully the film uses a lot of practical effects and they look good, and yes the crane scene and crystal peak fight were fricking awesome, TX also does an ok job at being intimidating for most of the film, and the ending felt satisfying, so for me T3 is just ok.
#6. Dark Fate - where do I begin, ok I'll start with the few positives there are, besides Natalia Reyes the casting was pretty good, the scene with Sarah where she talks about forgetting John's face was very emotional, the de-aging cgi was good, Mackenzie Davis did a good job acting wise, Dani's brother was actually smart and likable and in my opinion should have survived, and the action was kinda entertaining, on to the negatives, the film just like T3 and Genesys rehashes what came before and offers nothing new, makes the entirety of T1 and T2 completely pointless since not only does John die but judgment day still happens, the script feels unfinished and poorly written, besides the opening scene the cgi for the rest of the film is horrible, a lot of the acting feels phoned in from most of the cast, Gabriel Luna was an amazing casting choice and could have done a great job as the Rev 9 but was let down by a terrible script and direction, honesty I just feel disappointed about this film, I feel like with the talent this film had it could have been great but oh well.
#7. Genesys - a lot of the negatives I said about T3 and Dark Fate also apply to this, this film was terrible on so many levels, the action feels like something out of a fast and furious film, the script for the film doesn't make a lick of sense, besides Arnold the rest of the acting is terrible, the cgi sucks and feels unfinished, Jai Courtney and Emilia Clarke clearly don't care one bit, it makes the entirety of T1 and T2 completely pointless, rehashes what came before, uses nostalgia to promote itself but offers nothing else, literally everything that happens with John, - the few positives, Arnold is entertaining and likable as Pops, the film has an energetic and fun feel to it, I hate this film with a fricking passion.
Anyway those are my thoughts on the franchise, what are your thoughts, do you agree or disagree with me about my ranking, what are your ranking of the franchise?

2020.04.06 12:38 crazysouthie Did Paramount wait too long to release a sequel to Star Trek (2009)?
Star Trek (2009) despite its polarising response by many Trekkies made the franchise mainstream again after decades. After a big marketing campaign and excellent reviews, it opened with an excellent $75 million in North America and had an excellent multiplier of 3.4 to end up with $257 million. It was the fourth highest grossing film of the summer behind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Up and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Its overseas gross was less impressive with $127 million. Yet its $385 million gross was solid and the positive feedback primarily from people who were now introduced to Star Trek made it seem like the kind of film that could reignite a franchise (like Batman Begins). Its DVD and Blu Ray sales also made it clear that word of mouth was extremely strong. It sold over 8 million DVDs and over 3 million Blu Rays making it one of the best-selling home video titles in 2009. Its cast was also made up of rising stars including the likes of Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin who were likely to be in the public eye for several years.
Unfortunately, despite Paramount's desire to release the movie in 2011, script development took longer. Even by December 2010, there was no script for the film. Meanwhile Abrams started working on Super 8. In 2010, a release date of June 2012 was set. By the end of 2011, it was pushed back six months to the end of 2012 and finally to May of 2013. Production on the film wrapped only in May 2012.
The producers including Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci envisioned this film as The Dark Knight, following a frequent Hollywood trend of darker sequels. It likely proved to be a mistake given the more muted critical response to Into Darkness since the movie's optimistic tone was likely one of its selling points. Into Darkness was heavily marketed. 9 minutes premiered before IMAX screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. There was a 30 second teaser at the Superbowl. The movie's marketing was unfocused however because of a creative decision that hampered the marketing - hiding the reveal of Khan as the villain. Abrams and the writers had brought back one of the series most iconic villains into their story and the moment Benedict Cumberbatch was cast, speculation was rife over the identity of his character. For months actors from the film did interviews where they denied the fact that he played Khan. When the film finally released, the very obvious reveal of Cumberbatch's character ticked off Trekkies who were looking for the franchise to move into a new direction. It also proved to be a silly decision since it didn't galvanise the general audience since he wasn't sold as the big bad, the Joker in their marketing narrative. The film opened with $70 million ($5 million less than the first movie's opening despite four years of inflation, likely anticipation and 3D surcharges). It finished with $228 million domestically and $238 million overseas (while that was an increase from the first, it again wasn't necessarily a big jump given expansions of screens available in overseas markets and hefty 3D surcharges). Its $467 million worldwide gross easily made it the highest grossing Star Trek film but with a heavy $190 million budget and a pricey marketing campaign, it's unlikely it broke even theatrically.
Paramount's biggest mistake was to not strike when the iron was hot. Star Trek's success in 2009 should have led to immediate development of a sequel.

2020.02.08 12:47 CanIborrowafeeling93 A great gift idea for couples in LDRs like myself.
I (F/27) have been in a LDR with my fiancé (M/26) for almost 6 years. Me being in New York and him being in England. We met on tumblr and after months of exchanging notes fell deeply in love. Technology has always been a saving grace in our relationship and I don’t know if any of this would work without it, but at the same time we wrote personal letters to each other. Those letters are something personal I can hold and cry over when I’m missing him to death. (I would recommend writing physical letters to anyone in an LDR. Very romantic.) I even remember telling him how I was curious how big his hands were since that has always been something that I liked in the opposite sex, and in one letter he traced his hand on paper and sent it to me. I instantly cried and melted.
For our 1 year anniversary I was lucky enough to go live in the UK for the entire summer. He was a student at the time and we traveled around England, Wales, and even made a trip to Paris (where I was almost deported but that’s another story). So for 6 months I was in NY planning my trip but also thinking of something special to give my partner for our one year.
This idea was inspired by a movie I saw. It’s called Like Crazy, starring Anton Yelchin (RIP) and Felicity Jones. It’s a movie about two people who are also separated by distance (USA and UK). It’s a beautiful movie and would recommend it to anyone but it’s gut wrenching. Especially to anyone experiencing this right now. I even told my fiancé I wouldn’t watch this movie with him until we close the distance. Anyway, there’s a scene where Jones’s character gives her bf a present and it’s a diary where she’s written him letters everyday for months at a time.
So I bought a blank journal from a book store and created a book that was the story of us. All the ticket stubs for movies and museums I put in that books with little notes of what the night was like. So our stub from the natural history museum or our date when we went to see our first movie together (Inherent Vice). It had poems I wrote, I quoted poems he wrote to me and how they made me feel. I have changed my hair color a few times during this relationship but when we met my hair was Jet Black, so I cut a lock out, tied it in a red ribbon, put it in Saran Wrap, and taped it in a page of the book. It had passages where I dreamed of what our future looked like. It had photos of things from magazines I cut out and put in. And on the last page of the book I wrote a final letter from inside Dublin airport as I was waiting for my connecting flight to Wales to finally see my soulmate.
I was really proud of it. My fiancé absolutely loves books, devours them on the daily. When I gave him the book at midnight of our anniversary he had tears welling in his eyes. He told me it was the best book he ever received. And I always see it sitting somewhere in his room when I visit and flipping through it brings me back to the Love I was filled with when I was making it.
Plus it’s a great piece of evidence to prove to any embassy that you guys are a legitimate couple when you have to try to close the distance. Just a little helpful tip.
If anyone is looking for a good gift idea, that’s definitely one of my favorite ones. I have a few more since 6 Years keeps you on your toes with things like this. But I hope this will help anyone with some creative ideas in a LDR.
TL;DR I made an entire journal in the span of 6 months for my fiancé for our 1 year anniversary and he absolutely loved it. Currently in an LDR.

2019.11.18 22:20 mikakikamagika I found a notebook in an abandoned shed in the woods while camping. What it said is deeply disturbing. Part 3
Part 1 Part 2
Hey guys, I’m so so sorry it’s taken me so long to update but I was just recently given permission to post again without possible legal ramifications.
First, I’ll give you an update on me and my friends. All of us except for Eileen have returned to our respective colleges for our sophomore years. Eileen dropped out for a semester because of this incident. Ben and I have started dating, I know some of you are a bit suspicious of him, but I can assure you he’s an amazing guy and is totally normal.
Everyone back home has been on edge since the first events and it’s only gotten worse. Several families have moved, and my parents are greatly considering doing the same, especially after what’s happened recently.
So anyway. Two weeks after my last post, the active search for the Rupert’s was called off but the investigation was still going. The cops and the feds searched every square inch of those woods out for a 10-mile radius and found a few disturbing things, but no sign of the family.
They found an older car, abandoned, around 4 miles north of the spot where they disappeared, well off the roads and in a strange place. It had been there for several years, but was a newer model, which was extremely strange. It also had a tree growing through the middle of it, as if the car had just phased into the tree.
A few days after that report was released, a few boys (who I won’t name) from a neighboring town decided to trek into the woods to see the car for themselves. And you guessed it, they didn’t come back. Their parents were frantic, and a new search was put together and they combed every inch of the woods again.
They didn’t find anything until they got within the 4 miles radius of where the Rupert’s originally disappeared. They found more of those fucking spirals, the biggest one being 10 feet in diameter. 10 feet!!
There they found wht looked to be human hair braided through the twigs and branches. And I should add, none of the twigs or branches were bend or cracked like what usually happens with wood when you bend it—it was all gently sloping like it was grown that way.
So, they tested the hairs and found it was from 5 different people—2 unknown, and the other 3 belonging to the missing boys.
There was a panic. People were terrified and had no idea what to think. I didn’t even know what to think! At this time, I was still at home but I hadn’t left the town’s limits. I’m not superstitious, I can’t even say I’m all that religious. I tend to try and think practically and logically. But this had me stumped. I don’t think people could have done this. But if not people, then what?
There were so many people involved in the investigation. A curfew was set after the hair was tested, at least for people under 21. My friends and I were terrified something would happen to us too. After all, we had been into those goddamn woods. Was whatever was doing this after us too? Did it remember?
Things died down a bit after that, as the authorities had set up a perimeter around the scary area and didn’t let anyone through. Obviously, the campground was shut down and the national park closed until the investigation could be finished. They combed the area I think once a day, looking for anything.
Then they discovered a cave system near the old shed. They said it had been revealed after some storms passed through the area, the dirt was moved or something. But I don’t think it had ever been there until now.
It wasn’t deep or large, but it was a bit convoluted and labyrinthine, so they brought in geological teams to study it. They didn’t release this part officially, Detective Yelchin told me personally, but they said that it was unlike anything they had ever seen. There was some sort of magnetic interference or gravity something-or-other.
Time didn’t flow right when they were in there. They couldn’t get a read on their compasses. Their equipment would spaz out every once in a while. They never felt like they were safe there.
They interviewed us again and again, asking us the same questions over and over as if they expected to hear a different answer. We told them the same thing every time, what we saw, where we went, what happened.
A few pets went missing in the subsequent weeks, and then another person. But she came back. I’ll call her Lea. She was a bit of a vagrant, in her early 20s, from a not so nice part of town. Somehow, she got past the blockade while drunk, and disappeared. Her boyfriend reported her missing.
She had her phone on her, and they were able to track the last ping to the entrance of the caves. The search was renewed, this time with another place to look. They even brought in some sort of fancy heat-seeking thing in a helicopter. They used this because they knew she was still alive, as her phone would move around every once in a while. That’s what I was told, at least.
They were able to see everything from bears to chipmunks. They livestreamed this, which was kind of cool, as we saw a mother bear and her cubs and a bunch more wildlife. A large herd of deer. And a few cold spots they tried not to mention. Basically, they didn’t pick up a single human being other than the officers in the search.
Then, 33 hours after the last ping, they found her. And I don’t fucking know how, but she just appeared 50-some feet up in an old oak tree. One minute there was no heat signature, another there just was. We all saw it. It was recorded and played on the local news over and over.
Nothing, and then something.
So, they brought her back, and it seemed she was completely catatonic for a few days. No one saw her, no one heard from her, no updates until she just woke up. And she couldn’t remember a thing. She said she was drunk, she wandered away from the bar, and passed out in the woods, waking in the hospital. She had no idea that she had been gone for two whole weeks.
And the weird thing?? She was perfectly healthy. Still had food in her stomach, even her blood alcohol content was still as high as it would have been if she had been gone for a day, not 15. It’s as if Lea had slipped out of time, returning 15 days later.
The whole town just tried to get back to normal. A few weeks passed. We all left to go back to college. Life started to get back to normal. Ben and I started dating, I guess bonding over shared trauma. All of the friends who experienced this with us were irrevocably made closer. We dove into our studies and the anxiety of our summer started to fade away.
This is the worst part.
God, I can barely even bring myself to write this. Fuck.
I’m nauseous just thinking about it. They found Cassie Rupert. They officially said that her body was found, they didn’t say in what condition. But Detective Yelchin told me the truth, off the record and I was told never to tell anyone, but I just couldn’t.
They found her…. *fused*… in a tree. Her body was fresh. She hadn’t been dead for long. Half of her body was just…inside the tree. Not in a hole, not in a groove, like she had phased through the wood. Like the tree had absorbed her. I couldn’t bring myself to look at the pictures. A few of my friends did. We were on a group Skype call.
I couldn’t look at the fucking screen. I couldn’t do it. I heard the sounds of Jacob vomiting and Yona screaming.
I couldn’t do it. Ben started to cry. He was with me.
He said later, he described what she looked like. I didn’t want to hear it, but he needed to process it. She had tear streaks down her dirty face. There were scratch marks on the tree. Like she had tried to get out. Her nails were bloody and raw. She had died terrified, stuck in that horrible place.
Fuck, I can’t even think about it without crying. Just knowing what happened to her, hoping she would make it out and it ending up as horrible as *that*.
The town held a vigil for the family. I wasn’t there. I couldn’t go back. The official report was that she died of exposure several weeks ago. No recently. Not in that fucking way.
They found traces of the rest of her family. A jawbone from her mom, in the cave. Another one of those spirals, small, maybe only 3 feet in diameter, with the hair of the youngest girl braided in the twigs. Her baby teeth decorated the ring, intertwined with the hair and the wood.
She was 6 years old.
Traces of blood and bile and fecal matter in the cave, liked to her father. Bloody scratch marks all over the cave, bloody teeth at the base of a stalactite. Some unknown hair from some unknown animal stuck to a bloody shirt. They found these within a few weeks.
I don’t think they ever found any trace of the little boy. I don’t think I would want to know if they do.
Eileen and her parents moved to Connecticut to get away. I think she was affected the most by all of this, she never wanted to talk about any of it with us and had a hard time leaving the house back in the summer.
They kept finding more strange things in those goddamn woods.
They found a set of stairs, like the staircase in a house, with carpet and everything. They had no idea how that could have gotten out there.
They tried to keep it quiet, but we heard. They said it must have been some sick prank.
They found more of those spirals, in varying sizes, some as small as 3 inches and some as large as 8 feet. They found scratch marks on trees that didn’t belong to any animal native to the area.
Some people reporting seeing lights out in the woods late at night. But, with time, things started to settle down. There was a long stretch when nothing abnormal happened.
They eventually pulled out the extra patrols and officers, but kept the area cordoned off and monitored.
No one is allowed up there without express permission and supervision. Nothing else has come out since late October. Now, I’m just trying to recover.
I have nightmares all the time from this.
I keep seeing Cassie, screaming without making noise, crying and scratching at the tree she so desperately wants to escape from.
Her little sister alone in the woods, shadows moving around and whispering horrible things.
I keep dreaming of one of my friends in that cabin, scared and alone. Or my mom, or my little sister.
Of their teeth being discovered in the leaves.
Or their hair being braided into those spirals.
Of myself being transformed into some horrible monster, scratching at my own skin until my fur sloughs off, bloody.
I’ve been going to a therapist; it took me a while to find one who would believe me. Ben has been helpful. Sometimes he’ll have nightmares that wake him up screaming, and I’m not always there to comfort him.
Sometimes my sister will call me in the middle of the night because she dreamed I was trapped in those woods.
I’m going to ask my family if we can relocate, maybe closer to Boston where there are less woods.
This ordeal has changed my life.
It’s made my mind more open to unknowable things.
The world is much bigger than we thought. There are things out there we don’t understand.
There are things out there we should be afraid of. I don’t think humans are at the top of the food chain, and I don’t think we should pretend we are.
We are as temporary and vulnerable as anything else.
Be careful out there, guys. Be safe.
Thank you all for supporting me. I’ll update you if anything else happens. I hope I don’t have to.
All my love,

2019.09.24 06:53 notagreatgamer Aron Eisenberg's passing is different
's been around a long time, and a number of its biggest names have passed. Doohan, Kelley, Nimoy, Yelchin, Roddenberry himself. But to me, Aron's death is more personal than the others.
And I think I know why.
It all comes down to this scene
, and everything that came after it. When Heart of Stone
aired, I was thirteen going on fourteen. Nog wasn't that much older than me, and I really identified with him at that time in a lot of ways. He wasn't a "good Ferengi," and he was too Ferengi to not freak out the girls he went on dates with. He knew he was supposed to earn profit, but his heart was in another place. He was a misfit, he was an outsider, and he was short.
But he could join Starfleet.
For thirteen-year-old me, Nog was someone I could root for, someone whose career I could follow. He was an inspiration, and I've been coming back to that scene linked above every once in a while for the last few years.
Leonard Nimoy's passing was sad, because he was an actor I respected. Aron Eisenberg's passing is hard because I feel a little like I've lost a friend. I wonder how many other folks in the STO community - who maybe aren't that different in age from me - feel the same way.
I guess there's only one thing to do: hang out on DS9 for a bit, then clear a minefield of Imperial Romulan warbirds, with the Chimera
at my side.
Thanks for everything, Aron.

2018.07.16 00:16 MartyAndRick Could we get Saavik to replace Chekov?
Anton Yelchin is dead, we all know. JJ Abrams has also refused to recast Chekov, we all know. I highly doubt they’re gonna kill off Chekov, but more like “he left Starfleet after some X incident that made him lose faith in it” or something.
So who will they fill in the Chief Navigational Officer seat aboard the Enterprise-A
I’d love to see Saavik do that.
Yes, she was born in the early 2260s, so she’d be around five or so, depending on when the movie is set. Yes, a lot of people assume she’s erased from existence, as her parents were likely on Vulcan. Contrarily, in the prime universe, her parents were Vulcan and Romulan. She was born and lived on a Romulan colony before Spock brought her to Sarek to be adopted. Neither one of her parents would be on Vulcan in 2258.
Yes, it doesn’t sound logical in many ways.
However, we can always find a compromise:
- Set the movie ten years after Star Trek Beyond. 2273. This also fits in with the date of the events of The Motionless Picture (but please don’t repeat that)
- Have Saavik being born around a decade earlier because of the time travel. After all, alternate Chekov is actually four years older than his prime reality counterpart. (Prime Chekov was born in 2245, and Alternate Chekov is 17 in 2258, aka 2241), so why not?
So we’d get a 20-year-old Lieutenant Saavik acting as a Navigational Officer of the USS Enterprise
-A, taking up the current Chief’s role because he accidentally wore a red shirt and got killed. She is relatively new to the Enterprise
, but learns along the way, shows her abilities (since she’s half-Vulcan), and eventually stays as Chief Navigational Officer.

Here are some great comments from last week's thread
- Upgrade - This movie rocked. Great, pulpy, sci-fi fun. It felt like a love-letter to Paul Verhoeven and late 80's early 90's sci-fi films like The Running Man, Robocop, and Total Recall. The fight scenes were absolutely brutal and filmed in such a creative way. Having the camera be totally in-sync with Logan Marshall-Green's movements really puts you into the action and gives them a really visceral feel. The only other time I've seen that technique used with stunt choreography was in one quick shot during this fight scene from The Fate of the Furious when Hobbs bodyslams Shaw. I remember when I first saw that shot I was blown away. To see a film utilize it more throughly and really explore it was great. Upgrade never overstays it's welcome either and even though the first act takes it's time setting up the story, it's necessary for Green's arc and understanding his motivations. Director Leigh Whannell (Saw, Dead Silence) also did a great job with the emotional beats in the story and I was surprised at just how funny the movie was at times too. The biggest highlight had to be the relationship between Green and his STEM implant. The way it talks to him and their quipping back and forth during the action scenes had the audience in my theater laughing out loud. Huge kudos to LMG. He did a fantastic job with not just the acting but with the fight choreography too. He really sold the idea that someone else was in control of his body. His unnatural and robotic movements and his hilarious facial expressions reacting to what he was doing played perfectly. He definitely deserves better than being called 'budget Tom Hardy'. Anyone who thinks LMG is a budget anything needs to check out The Invitation, Quarry, and Damnation. Plus, I can actually understand what Logan Marshall-Green is saying when he talks. Jokes aside though, this is definitely a movie that benefits from being seen on the big screen. Not just to support original, indie sci-fi films but also because it was a total blast.
- Thoroughbreds - I had been meaning to watch this film for some time. The poster interested me enough that I wanted to go in without knowing much about it. Having seen it, I'm impressed that it was made by a debut director. It was such a cohesive film. The score was particularly unsettling, and there were scenes that were funny but the music made it creepy. The sociopathy vs. psychopathy aspect was also quite well done - it was almost like the film was detached from the charcaters just like the characters were detached from their emotions. The cast was outstanding, every single one of them, including Anton Yelchin. The dude stole every scene he was in. I had only seen Olivia Cooke before in Ready Player One, and I can almost imagine her character in that to have this backstory because of that monologue about her dream of what the future would be like (it was quite similar except for when she ends it with the world being taken over by horses). I don't know what to make of Anya Taylor-Joy's character, but I suppose that's what psychopaths are like - you wouldn't know what to make of them. Also, for some reason I thought this was based on a book and was disappointed that it wasn't. I was looking forward to reading something like this.
- I revisited Joe Wright's Hanna. Saoirse Ronan kills it! Hanna is a truly blistering espionage thriller by director Joe Wright. Hanna is probably my favorite film from Wright to date. It is fast paced, exhilarating, and interesting. Wright has crafted a wholly original spy movie that oozes creativity. Every scene has cool shots and wonderfully executed panning shots. Impressive sequence after sequence line every scene of Hanna. You will be amazed and entertained by this movie for sure. Wright perfected the action film with Hanna. Acting wise, Hanna has a delight cast of characters that emote their respective figures with surrealistic zeal. Saoirse Ronan makes for a deadly killer and a sweet heroine. She is fierce and believable as a spy, while also conveying Hanna's childish nature. Eric Bana is at his best as Hanna's tough, yet kind father. He is very cool as a spy. Cate Blanchett and Tom Hollander are two of the creepiest villains in film history. They will unsettle and threaten you. All in all, Hanna has a well cast ensemble. Musically, Hanna is exciting and loud with a fresh electronic score from The Chemical Brothers. The bass will blast, the synths will reverberate, and the themes will soar into your ears. Hanna's soundtrack is quite memorable. I have not felt such thrills in a spy thriller since The Bourne Trilogy.

Have fun and play nice!

2018.06.03 04:37 libertarianmurse What is happening now? [spoilers]
Hi I’m not exactly up to date on what’s next here. I know everyone is saying trollhunters will be splitting into 3 below and wizards? Is there not going to be a season 4 of trollhunters? Or are all three shows going to be happening at once?
I read that 3 below is supposed to come out this year, any word on wizards?
Also, does anyone know if Jim becoming a troll was always part of the story? Or was this something that was added because Yelchin died?

2017.11.23 21:31 anonymous789663 Gangstalking story in Toronto
I am 25 year old student in a bachelor degree course who currently works, goes to school and maintains a somewhat normal life in Toronto, Canada. Since May, 2016 I have been targeted by people who have the ability to read my mind. I believe this may have something to do with an Mk Ultra type program. I know this sounds crazy. I have never told anyone about this because I fear I may be labelled as schizophrenic or delusional. I am a perfectly sane person and I believe the gas lighting side effects of my experience is completely intentional. I understand this is a lot to read, however I wanted to be as comprehensive as possible because this story is completely true and is a horrific crime against humanity and my individual human rights. I don't know how else these crimes will come to light since I would imagine any authorities I contact would label me a "Targeted Individual" nut job and sweep my story under the rug. I know I am having my mind read because I am constantly being given a commentary on all my thoughts through sensations in my body. This sounds like schizophrenia, however I do not hear voices and this occurred in sequence with people who were clearly agents of this program surrounding themselves in my life. I suspect it may have something to do with directed microwaves but I do not know. Another potential explanation would be the manipulation of brain waves through electromagnetic frequencies. The 'signals' feels like small pulses, tingles, slight pains (sometimes real pain) mostly focused on telling me what is left (as in negative) or right (as in positive) as in the part of body that I experience the signal. Every thought or action I do is accompanied by a positive or negative sensation, 24/7, for over a year now. There is no apparent agenda to this as the sensations mostly signal towards just common sense. I have become so intertwined with these communications that I am able to have conversations with whatever this is and it responds with negativity or positivity (again left and right). At the moment I am feeling chills throughout my legs as I write this. Having endured this for over a year I have become very adept at understanding what it is each signal is telling me. It's like I have developed a personal language with this entity based on nuances. Which I am sure was part of the objective of whatever is studying me. It's like a short hand for communication without the need for words. I have never heard ANY voices what so ever in my head. Although I have heard what sound like loud bangs within the floor that nobody else seems to notice. I would imagine this is the same technique used for 'Voice to Skull' (V2K) other people have reported experiencing. On one very disturbing day I was briefly given images inside my head.
This began when I temporarily dropped out of school and took a job at a package sorting facility as a truck loader in April, 2016. For the prior 6 months I had endured relentless bed bugs in my apartment building which had forced me to temporarily give up on my studies. I was attending the night shift 5 days a week and I noticed that I was being watched very carefully by my supervisors and manager. I assumed it was because I was performing well and was in line for a promotion. After a few weeks the focus on myself grew more intense. Team meetings before shifts would focus on things I alone had done and I was often indirectly singled out. I began to notice scenarios where it felt like I was being set up to be tested morally. Apparent long time employees would do things that I knew were wrong and I would feel conflicted as to what to do. I strongly sensed something was strange and that I was being tested for more than a mere promotion. Eventually I began to suspect that certain people in the mail facility were not who they appeared to be.
From that point on I was subliminally persuaded that I was a relative of a famous musician by what I believe were members of a secret program similar to Mk Ultra. Throughout the month of May I began to notice insinuations in my surrounds at work and on social media pointing towards the famous rapper Drake (Aubrey Graham). This culminated with the release of his album Views which began with a track about 'keeping the family close'. At this point I began to suspect that I may be a relative of Drake. My grand mother who resides in England had been a war time orphan with Jewish heritage whose birth parents were unknown. I cross referenced Drake's mothers age with that of my grand mother, they were very close in age and had a vague resemblance to each other. At this point I began following Drake on Instagram. Out of curiosity I vaguely began reading his Instagram posts for signs of correlation.
THE INSTAGRAM POSTS - While studying Drake's posts on Instagram it appeared that there was an underlying narrative to what he was posting as I followed him. All of these posts are still visible on his Instagram page. The first post which had significance to me was on May 24th about how he had added dates to his next tour. The dates were on October 7th in Montreal and in Toronto on October 9th. I am a obvious Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I wear a Leafs hat every single day at work and the few remnants of my facebook profile which I abandoned years ago have had a Leafs logo for almost 10 years. The tour dates Drake added were on my birthday, October 7th. That same day was the opening game of the Maple Leafs 2016/2017 season which began in Montreal, the same day and location Drake added to his tour while all this was happening to me. This was the first post which made me start to believe I was connected to Drake somehow. I was and am not a huge fan of hip hop but I could appreciate the gravity if one of my relatives were so successful in such a field.
Following this realization that there may be credence to the theory that I may be connected to Drake somehow I continued with my job at the packaging facility. The people around me whom I believed to be co workers began looking at me with apparent glowing endorsement. As if they were approving of my legitimacy of deserving this attention and that I was a 'good' person. At least that was what I gleaned from their demeanor towards me. At this point it became obvious certain people at my work were in the know in regards to what I was suspicious of. They acted kindly towards me and treated me with a reverence like I was a VIP they were protecting under the guise of their fake employment at the packaging facility. I began to seriously believe in what they were convincing me of. That I was indeed the subject of affection of Drake's and that he had sent 'spies' undercover into my workplace to protect and eventually liberate me from my mundane life as a truck loader. From then on I played along with the apparent narrative and believed I was being further tested of my character as a person. At the facility I had been introverted and reluctant to socialize. I assumed this testing was to assure that I was not hiding demons, unfavorable attitudes or beliefs in my isolation. At this point I believed whatever I was being 'tested' for, the payoff must be very large given that I was literally having my mind read. Very naive in retrospect, but I always felt I had little power in the situation regardless. My belief was that I was about to be inducted into the higher echelons of society. So high that they were able to read minds and orchestrate elaborate ruses in plain day light with apparent ease, going as far as to pull the wool over the eyes of my employer and plant 'secret agents' in my midst. I was very aware of the so called 'Illuminati' implications to what I was involved in and assumed that my situation, and fate, were far out of my own hands at this point. Having only learned what I knew about secret societies and the like through second hand accounts on the internet I assumed, and hoped, that it was far less malevolent than what I had read.
Shortly after I began noticing very strange things happening. It began with strange noises like banging pipes emanating from below my apartment. That is when I first realized I was being spied on in my home. I began talking to myself out loud trying to communicate with whoever was spying on me. It talked back in the form of those 'noises'. I would say something aloud and it would either respond with a soft 'thud' in agreeance or a loud 'thud' of disapproval. Looking back it probably didn't matter, so long as it kept me busy. I assumed it had something to do with my apparent relation to Drake and at the time I was unafraid of the real life implications of what was happening to me. I was extremely gob smacked by this at the time. I assumed what was happening had to be a good thing but I was very wrong.
On June 4th he released the first song following my employment at the packaging facility. Titled 4PM in Calabasas I saw some parallels between his words and my own life. A theme I found in retrospect when analyzing the lyrical content of the rest of his music. About how I was somehow the subject of his music. As if he were saying what I was thinking and using his platform to appease me, acting like some sort of 'cool big brother' from a distance (ironic). Empathizing with my life struggles and using them as inspiration for his own music. The lyrics can be found on rap genius. Reading them it is clear, at least to myself, how this correlates into my story.
Another post I recall was on June 8th. He is wearing rose tinted sunglasses and a pink European football jersey with a prominent Jeep insignia. I connected this to my own struggle being a student struggling to pay my rent and, at the time, steadily declining in my academic progress, him oblivious to life's struggles viewing life with 'rose tinted glasses'. It felt like an admission that he had allowed me to continue in obscurity away from the limelight in order for him to use my struggles as a means of inspiration while enduring little himself. This same day he also posted what appeared to be a new logo for his brand OVO (October's Very Own), the name of which was another implication towards myself, considering my birthday is on October 7th. The logo embodied a new color scheme of blue and red. I connected this new look as a homage to sports logos like that of MLB, NBA, and the NFL. I believed this to be a nod to the fact that I was being tested at the time and that I was 'competing' for something. It goes without saying I was very flabbergasted, the implied gravity of Drake changing his logo because of me felt massive considering my small existence.
Somewhere around this time I was on my phone looking at his Instagram profile when a notification popped up saying that Drake had 'liked' another rapper from England named Giggs. This stayed on his profile for mere seconds before vanishing as if someone knew I was on his profile at that exact moment and that I was meant to see this. I researched the rapper Giggs and noticed that his albums contained themes about emanating thoughts from the mind to the people around him, as if this were a tongue in cheek reference to the people at my work who I believed were able to read my thoughts. The artwork used on Giggs' albums clearly illustrates this.
On June 10th he posted a picture of his producer by the name of Noah "40" Shebib. I immediately recognized him as someone who looked very much like one of my co workers. I had noticed this person earlier as someone who was very strange. Keeping to himself and appearing very morose, singing to himself in the line for the food truck in an Eastern European language I could not understand. He would sit far away from the others on break and smoke cigarettes on a bench. I frequently noticed him watching me from the time I started working there and felt disturbed by his ominous presence. Early on while working we conflicted with each other because I noticed him constantly standing near me, to the extent that our supervisor noticed. At the time I thought maybe he was either a little slow in the head or was a homosexual. I gave my supervisor an annoyed look and without saying anything he had this man go someplace else as if he was aware of his somewhat threatening behavior. This culminated later with me standing my ground staring at him, to call him out on his odd behavior while I held a baton sized package in a threatening manor when he wouldn't leave me alone. After that he no longer bothered me. Once I had acknowledged that the people around me were not who they appeared to be he began to be nicer to me as if the gig was up. He would only act coy around the other employees I assumed to be oblivious to what was going on, I thought in order to maintain his disguise.
June 10th, the day that Drake posted the picture of Noah "40" Shebib I was certain that this man was the same person I was seeing at work. The following day at work he appeared very sheepish. As if he had his cover blown and was somewhat unhappy with being singled out. He appeared to be attempting to hide his face from some of the others, whom I am still unsure if they were involved, who began to look at him questioningly. One man in particular appeared to be as gob smacked by what was happening as myself and was clearly portraying himself as someone who had stumbled upon this facade. He even appeared to be slightly angered by the idea that his workplace was being played out as some sort of testing site. His unafraid attitude convinced me he was involved as well. Given the scale of what was taking place it always seemed like it would be highly unlikely that the powers at be would allow such loose ends. It started to become apparent that whatever operation was unfolding around me was taking on that of a failed appearance. Whether that was planned in advance or not I still do not know. What I did know at that point was that whatever was going on was strangely following the narrative of Drake's Instagram posts. Although today I am unconvinced Drake has ever even heard of me, never mind my relative.
June 13th, this was the day I had it in my mind that I must be, despite my many doubts, a relative of Drake's. After waking up I went on my phone and checked Drake's instrgram feed for anything new as by this point I was desperate for more information and for the facade to end. I checked my phone again and saw a new post by Drake. I would describe this as the last time I was truly happy to this day. It dawned on me as I lay on my bed in bliss, with the sun shining bright through my blinds, that all my problems had been solved. That I would never have to worry about money again and that my life had become something much greater. He had a new post saying that his new album was at the top of the Billboard charts. The part that was significant about this was the description he added to the post. It said "The sun is shining so hard outside my blinds and the first thing I see on my phone is this". This felt like a glowing affirmation of what I was thinking at that exact moment. Still a strange correlation in retrospect.
It was around this time that I first realized that I was not being monitored through cameras and microphones, such as on my phone and hidden in my apartment, but having my internal thoughts read the entire time. At one point while attempting to converse with the noises in the floor I went to the bathroom to take a break. It was exhausting having every moment of my life dictated by this situation. In frustration I though in my mind how I could care less about all of this and that I wanted nothing to do with it, after which I heard a loud thud from beneath the floor. At this point I knew my thoughts were being read. The exact date of this is unclear in my memory. From that point my mind was being very heavily taxed, dealing with the reality that nothing I thought in my head was ever private.
June 15th, this was the day where things started to show signs of even greater complexity. Drake posted a song called 'Still Brazy' on his Instagram. My last name being Bra****** I assumed this was a direct shot at myself for some reason. I listened to the song and interpreted the lyrics as being relevant to myself. Once again it felt as if the lyrics were spoken from my point of view. The situation I felt myself in, however minor in comparison to what would eventually unfold, certainly felt very crazy. Here is a link to the song lyrics which include themes of extreme paranoia, mentioning how people may not want to see me with money, and how "the devils on me, got me trippin". There are also references to family and keeping 'devils' away, "grandma pray for me, devil keep away from me". Despite its somewhat patronizing title and chorus I assumed this to be a kind of backhanded compliment from someone who saw them self as a type of older brother to myself trying to educate me. Brazy, being that I took after my occasionally hot headed father as opposed to my mother's family, from which I had discerned I was related to Drake through.
SPIDER INCIDENT - June 17th. After the incidence of Drake releasing the song somewhat patronizing me I felt I was being thoroughly tested for my worth. At the time I thought it very frivolous that they would attempt such things with me knowing the basic structure of what was going on. At one point in my work shift I encountered a spider walking near my station. I crouched down next to the spider and went to pick it up with my gloved hand. As I reached down I saw something that I had never seen before in my life. The spider acted coy as if straight out of a Disney cartoon, it cowered beneath my hand. Its legs all shot up underneath its abdomen in one swift motion and it allowed me to pick it up without struggle. I was immediately suspicious of such odd behavior and halfway between dropping in underneath the loading dock away from harm I had a strong sense that it was very unnatural. I attempted to shake the spider from my hand and it latched on to one of my fingers before dropping as if to guide its self into the crevice below away from the concrete. To this day I do not believe that was a natural spider and given what I now know about the complexity of the situation as well as mind manipulation I am certain that it was either having its mind controlled by a human or a mechanical device. The former being less believable to me because of the apparent urgency to protect itself from harm, I assume constructing such an intricate and convincing device would cost a very large amount of money. After returning home that night I concluded that whatever had happened was some sort of naive attempt at gauging my compassion. I said aloud to those listening in my apartment that I knew that the spider was not real and went to sleep.
ANTON"S DEATH - Sunday, June 19th. This was the day when things started to go very wrong. This was the day Drake posted an image to Instagram of a much younger version of himself standing next to Anton Yelchin. The description accompanied said "rest in peace Anton". Seeing this I felt remorseful thinking that my newly discovered relative had lost a friend from early in his life. However, this occurring only days after my moment of bliss, I was still on a natural high in the belief that my life was now perfect. I was afraid however that I would not be considered empathetic enough if I did not grieve, regardless I enjoyed my day off and returned to work that Monday.
June 20th - Upon entering work it was very apparent that the atmosphere had become very sullen. All those whom I had identified as 'in' on the operation appeared very morose and treated me with indifference. The man I knew as '40' was again very hostile towards myself, he had a pack of cigarettes attached to his belt and would challenge my gaze with a very angry and hurt look. I did not understand immediately but I eventually discerned non verbally from my co workers that what had happened to Anton was connected to me. My co workers started to turn on me and I felt as if I had personally done something wrong. After work that day I went home and tried to understand what had gone wrong. CONTINUED BELOW IN COMMENTS

2017.09.07 14:31 owner-of-the-boner Weekly Movie and TV Discussion Thread 9/7/2017
Welcome to another edition of the weekly tv and movie discussion thread! This week I think we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel that is awards season. Get hyped! IT
- Dir: Andres Muschietti
- Starring: Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Bill Skarsgard
- Seven young children battle a mysterious creature that takes over their hometown of Derry, Maine.
I could do a whole post on just this movie alone. I normally try to temper expectations so that I don't get disappointed, but I threw that out the window months ago. I just finished the full unabridged book version just in time, and will be seeing this one Friday. It has all the makings of a huge blockbuster success, seeing that there isn't anything else in theaters that will challenge it, an excellent marketing campaign, and overall excitement that can come with a big release. The strikes that are against are as follows: relatively new director, it is a Stephen King adaptation, it has been stuck in development forever, and hardcore fans are going to be pissed about something no matter what. That being said, I predict a huge commercial success and a (hopefully) strong critical response. 9/11
- Dir: Martin GuiGui
- Starring: Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Gina Gershon
- A group of 5 people find themselves trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center's North Tower on 9/11
I added this one just because I laughed at the juxtaposition of the incredibly serious subject matter and the incredibly hilarious casting decisions. I can only assume Charlie Sheen is paying to be involved in a movie again, and Whoopi Goldberg is a name that I completely forgot existed. The biggest sign that this one is going to fail it is a movie about an American Tragedy that Mark Wahlberg didn't want to be a part of. Who knows, maybe this one surprises and gives Sheen's career a shot to the heart, but probably not. Anti Matter
- Dir: Keir Burrows
- Starring: Yaiza Figueroa, Philippa Carson, Tom Barber-Duffy
- Ana, an Oxford PHD student, finds herself unable to build new memories following an experiment
This one is fairly interesting. The film festival reviews are very positive so far, but these tend to come down when the general public and more mainstream reviewers get a hold of it. If anyone is a fan of Shane Carruth, imagine this one like Primer with higher production value. The trailer makes the comparison to the two films, but also shows an added romantic edge and some Jason Bourne-y action sequences that Primer certainly didn't have. If it is playing near you and you don't feel like going to see IT, then this is probably your best bet this week. Home Again
- Dir: Hallie Meyers-Shyer
- Stars: Nat Wolff, Reese Witherspoon, Lake Bell!!
- Life for a single mom in Los Angeles takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her
As you all know, no movie discussion thread is complete without a little Lake Bell thrown in there. If you're keeping track at home, that is four releases involving Lake bell in the last 6 weeks. I tend to wonder if her staying with smaller releases is her choice or not. Either way, the frequency of releases she's involved in makes me think she's going to have to break through soon. I'm about to surprise you: I think this is going to be a good movie. It is from the producers of It's Complicated, which is a favorite for all the moms out there, but also is good. Yes, it is a romantic comedy, and yes the premise is pretty dumb, but if you are forced to see this a significant other or even your parents, you aren't going to be totally miserable. The Limehouse Golem
- Dir: Juan Carlos Medina
- Starring: Olivia Cooke, Bill Nighy, Eddie Marsan
- A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that a mythical golem must be responsible
Billy Nighy stars in a regular whodunnit about a series of murders in early twentieth century England. Investigator rushing to solve a series of murders with deeper meaning reads to me like a British flavored Da Vinci code. Maybe less history involved in the Limehouse Golem, but the trailer had the same sort of feel for me. I think this one will be entertaining and relatively palatable for fans of mysteries and thrillers. Rememory
- Dir: Mark Palansky
- Starring: Peter Dinklage, Matt Ellis, Anton Yelchin (RIP)
- The widow of a wise professor stumbles upon one of his inventions that's able to record and play a person's memory
This really shouldn't be on here, but it is interesting for a few reasons. For one, I believe it is the last time we will see Anton Yelchin in a wide movie release. He died in a freak accident shortly after I saw Green Room and it affected me more than I thought it would. I thought he was a skilled actor and he will be missed. Secondly, this film was released for free on the Google play store before its theatrical release, marking the first time it has happened. This probably means something significant: Google is testing the market to purchase and make available large scale releases before their actual release date. That should have movie theater owners shaking in their boots. I know many people (not myself) who would rather pay extra to watch a film the day its released on their couch instead of theaters. Regardless, this one might have enough mystery or twists and turns to hold your interest if you do decide to check it out. Other Movies Opening this Week: Daddy, Fallen, Gun Shy, Rebel in the Rye, Trophy, True to the Game TV Bojack Horseman
The fourth season of Bojack releases Friday, September 8th, which I know will make some people very happy. It seems like the fans of this cartoon are more rabid than any other, save for Rick and Morty. I haven't watched any Bojack, so if there is something I missed, I would love for a real fan to sound off in the comments below. All previous seasons should be currently available on Netflix if you need to catch up before Friday.
Well that's all I got for this week, feel free to sound off on anything you watched recently, you're going to watch soon, or anything you never want to watch again!

2017.03.04 22:28 Trekfan74 Chris Pine has heard nothing about the next Star Trek movie.
Was lurking on Trekmovie and found this article they recently posted. http://trekmovie.com/2017/03/03/chris-pine-hasnt-heard-anything-about-next-star-trek-movie-paramount-searching-for-new-ceo/
For people who can't be bothered to click it here is the small statement he gave on it.
I haven’t really heard anything about it. I haven’t gotten the script, so we will see what happens. But, I love – I love this group of people.
Now to make this clear it doesn't mean no film will be made and if you read the entire article you know Paramount is in the middle of a big executive change with the CEO leaving so its probably putting a lot of projects in chaos now.
Now all that said it is telling a film that was supposedly announced back in July has been pretty pretty quiet. I have said for awhile now I think one will eventually get made but there are no guarantees at this point. Beyond basically flopped, we know most of the cast is not signed up for a fourth film and with the premature death of Anton Yelchin the writing could be on the wall.
I always imagine if they didn't make another film they would basically just go this route....not bring it up again lol. This was a similar ploy they did for the Terminator sequels after Terminator Genisys didn't perform as hoped (but actually did make money). They had announced two sequels but then complete silence and just pulled the films from their premiere dates.
And the reality is the other Trek sequels never had any doubt they were getting made. The producers and writers were talking up the possibilities of Trek 2 and 3 just months after the other films premiered. Here it is now eight months later and a total wall of silence. Its funny how you can't get JJ Abrams to shut up about all the new Star Wars films coming up but yet I don't think the guy has said anything about Star Trek just in passing in the last six months.
Hopefully we'll hear something soon but I do have a feeling with a new guard at Paramount taking over the KT films could be put on ice for good.

After a mission involving a new Avengers squad led by Cap ends with several civilian casualties in Lagos, the team are asked to sign an agreement that would force them to take orders from a United Nations panel. Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) pressures Cap to accept this new arrangement, in part because he feels deeply guilty about his own past recklessness; Captain America, however, fears that the Avengers will only be corrupted by bureaucracy. Their disagreement eventually escalates into all-out war when Cap's old friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), now a brainwashed assassin known as the Winter Soldier, reenters the picture.

They arrive to find an audience of neo-Nazis. After their inflammatory set, The Ain't Rights encounter something they weren't supposed to see and are soon forced to face off against the club's owner (a terrifying Patrick Stewart) and his henchmen.

The one bright spot is Raphina (Lucy Boynton), his cool and mysterious classmate. In an attempt to woo Raphina, Conor invites her to star in his rock band's new music video. There's only one issue: he's not part of a band . . . yet! Filled with catchy, period-appropriate musical performances (think The Cure, The Clash, Duran Duran, et al.), the delightful Sing Street is the latest film from writer-director John Carney (Begin Again, Once).

|Questions ||Answers |
|Hey Anton! Thanks so much for doing this AMA, you're one of my inspirations for acting! One of my favorite movies of the last ten years is Charlie Bartlett, with this scene being my favorite: Link to youtu.be My question for you is, due to the many different roles you've played, how do you prepare yourself for each individual role you portray? Do you consider yourself a method actor? ||Thank you very much, i appreciate that. the preparation for me varies - but essentially comes down to answering all of the questions i can possibly think of regarding the human being that i am playing. i try not to leave anything unanswered in my mind so that i know as much as i can about a person. additional research, films to watch, paintings, books, etc - anything that will help inform this human being. the more questions you have about who they are the more work you have in answering them and the more i think you learn about them ... hard to answer a question about preparation - it's a weird process inevitably. |
|Thank you so much for taking the time to respond! ||Victor levin is a very kind, very generous man. |
|Mr. Yelchin Can I ask: What is the best thing a director can do for you on set? ||For me the most fundamental element between a director and actor is trust. we both have to trust one another and understand each other and be entirely on the same page for experimentation to take place. |
| ||I trusted Vic immensely when we were shooting 5 to 7. I treasure(d) my relationship with him and it allowed me to have the freedom to do what I felt I needed to. His openness to ideas and receptivity to discussion was immensely helpful - invaluable. |
|Hello Anton, you've worked with a lot of big names over a young career. Did anyone you have worked with give you certain inspiration/advice worth passing along? ||I've been very fortunate to work with a lot of tremendous humans. I think what I've picked up on the most is that they all care about their work so much - their dedication and love for what they do is astounding. It's all we have - how we treat what we do. |
| ||A wonderful piece of advice given to me early on was not to get discouraged. if not this thing - there will be the next or the one after that. |
|Hi i have two questions! The first is for Anton: I think you are fantastic in Star Trek! Have you had many interactions with Walter Koenig? ||Thank you! I have had the privilege of meeting with and speaking with Mr. Koenig a few times and he is a true gentlemen. I am honored to be interacting over time with his wonderful performance. |
|The second is for both of you: what is your favorite thing about your new movie? ||My favorite thing about the new film are the long takes. i think it is a longstanding and wonderful tradition in cinema that is unfortunately dwindling in favor of fast cuts. |
|Anton- what was it like working with Robert Downey Jr. and Drake in Charlie Bartlett? ||Robert Downey Jr. influenced me tremendously in his freedom and experimentation as a performer - Drake and I had one scene together, but we saw each other many years later and despite all his tremendous success he was incredibly kind and humble with me which I really appreciated. |
|If you could recommend 3-5 films that you deem 'must-see', what would they be? And sidebar: In the criminally underrated Alpha Dog, how did you feel when you did that pool scene with the lovely Amber Heard and Amanda Seyfried!? ||How about 3-5 favorites? who am i to say what's a must see? TARKOVSKY. i know douchey directer instead of film response but seriously. |
| ||It was cold in that pool. seriously, really fucking cold. |
|Hi Anton, A new Terminator movie is coming this year. Will you go see Terminator Genisys? ||I'll likely go see it - because i like terminator movies. |
|Did you hear Arnold say that T4 “sucks” and “thank God” he wasn’t in it? ||Didn't hear arnold say it no, but as a fan i have to respect the man's opinion. we are all entitled to one |
|Thanks for coming in to do an AMA today! Anton, I'm a major admirer of the work (even the "Fright Night" remake). Now this question is for both of you. ||I think this is more of a question for Vic and his sensibility as a filmmaker. it's to his credit he can convey passion without needing to resort to sex. personally, i suggested that we have as much graphic sex in the film as possible. too much dialogue, too little sex. sex sells as they. JUST KIDDING. |
|This is a modern May-December romance where the focus of it was love, not sex. How were you able to pull off a love story without factoring in sex? || |
|Anton; what kind of movie is more fulfilling to make - a serious drama like Alpha Dog, or a quirky dark comedy like Odd Thomas? (both of which you were great in by the way) ||I am grateful to be making movies at all - so the process of making films itself is fulfilling to me. the journey of understanding the characters is what's most fulfilling, and of course, the process of cinema itself. |
|Hello Anton! Greetings from India! Looking forward to seeing you in Broken Horses and I wish you all the good luck. How was your experience working with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, considering its his first overseas project outside India? Was it any different from the other projects you've been a part of? ||Hello! i enjoyed working with Mr. Chopra very much. I think he has incredible spirit and commitment and am fascinated by his approach to the cinematic medium as it recalls an interest in mise en scene that seems to be dwindling in stateside pictures. |
|Anton: do you have a personal favorite project that you've worked on? victor: i saw that you co-executive produced the 5th season of Mad Men. how did that come about and how was it? ||I appreciate all of the films i've worked on - i feel fortunate to have had all of the experiences - it's hard to rank them - they've all informed my experience and inspired me |
|You've worked with quite a lot of stars over the years. Who was your favorite actor to work with? ||I can't say who was a favorite as i was incredibly inspired and have remained inspired by all of the amazing people i have been fortunate to work with. |
|What kind of movie you are shooting prefer? Horrors or romantic or drama...? ||Anything really - no preference depends on the people im working with and the characters. |
|What book is your favorite? And what book inspires you in your life? ||Hmmm great question. the castle probably is my favorite or crime and punishment. |
|How well are background actors payed or are they volunteers? ||Background actors are steadfast and charming workers. they deserve more than they get is my feeling. |
|There are so many. Certainly Felicity Jones. I think she's brilliant. ||Gary busey. i think gary busey and felicity should do a film together. a love story. directed by rob zombie. |
|Mr. Yelchin? what was it like working with Christian Bale on Terminator Salvation? ||He was wonderful. Very committed and simultaneously kind. |
|Hi Anton! First, Middle of Nowhere, Charlie Bartlett, and Like Crazy are three of my favorite movies. So, thanks for being excellent in them. ||That list of films is long, to say the least. however, most were made before i was born. |
|Is there any movie that you wish you were in that you aren’t? And what is your favorite kind of donut? ||I'm pretty basic. i like donuts with holes. |
|Thanks for doing this, I think you are one of today's rising stars in film and was wondering about your accent in Star Trek. Did you reference your parents/heritage for research? Was it difficult to get down? Are you fluent or was it just for the role? ||The reference for me was Walter Koenig's wonderful performance in the original series and the original films. |
| ||I am fluent however. |
|Did being born in Russia have any influence on being cast as Chekov? ||I am not sure. I think that's a better question for JJ. |
|What was it like working with J.. Abrams on the Star trek films? ||JJ is wonderful. I am privileged to be in his films. |
|I just realized I called him "J.. Abrams" DAMN YOU TYPOS!!! Thank you :~) ||I like that tho. J > > > > >>> ... . . . . . . |
|How is star Trek 3 coming Mr. Yelchin? :~) ||It's coming! Soon! TO A THEATER NEAR YOU! |
|Do you remember much about your guest spot on "ER"? Link to i.imgur.com. ||I remember being moved and terrified and having a wonderful time |
|What is the best thing and how does to feel to be an actor? ||I feel tremendously privileged to be an actor. |
|I totally fell in love with your character in Charlie Bartlett. In what ways are you similar and in what ways are you dissimilar to him? Also, what are the odds of getting you to record a voice clip saying "nuclear vessels" in your Chekov accent? ||I think Charlie Bartlett and I are quite different. I admire his candidness and optimism tremendously. |
|Do you think the movie would be better if it was called "5 2 7" ?? ||Yes i do. |
|No you don't. :) ||I like numbers, they're clean. i wish i could give all these answers with number lock on my keyboard. |
