Normally not a fan of sequels but. The New top gun trailer looks like the best movie out in a long time!

Air Force buddy of mine sent me the link to the trailer yesterday.  Looks pretty awesome.  On a side note, does Tom Cruise even age?

So, for those of you not on "the Facebook", I made my big screen debut.  I don't remember even hearing about it being in theatres besides some film festivals, but I was an extra in "My Days of Mercy".

Have a feeling this is going to be a disaster for the movie industry....

Young people are going to go back and watch the original and realize how shitty and unoriginal movies are nowadays.

Its funny out of all of the movies of "my generation" that I have made my kids watch ( who now are 20, 18, 16) this was one they liked the least.  They saw it as very "cheesy" - I was a little flabbergasted to be honest...

I still wear my "because I was inverted" t- shirt though :D

Wait.  Did any of you see the Cats trailer?  

NOT A FAN.

But then again,  I never really got the appeal of Cats? I mean, some of the songs are good/I enjoyed the choreography (the dancers are amazing!), but...furries? On my stage? Uhhhhhh. I can think of at least 10 musicals that should have been made into a movie and Cats was never on that list.

...why do some of the cats have lips and some don't?  And the scale of furniture keeps changing throughout the film.  My cat cannot hold a dinner knife.

So kinda like the "Dumbo" remake?  Fine to watch, but just meh as a movie.  At least "Dumbo" tried to change the story up a little bit.

I would imagine that, as long as there any bit of profit in crapping out remakes, Disney will keep doing it.

It's in your best interest that that is not a reality.

I suffered through the real CATS twice, damn sure don't need to see it as a movie.  Although I can play a solid Memory on the Piano..

 

They are making money but I just don't have any desire to see Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the beast remake- I cant be the only one.  But it sure seems to me this has been a bust for summer movies. Cant think of much out that was worth seeing, where usually in the summer I take a long lunch a few times and catch something.

Watched the new "MIB: International" last night.  It was fine.  I seem to remember it getting hammered pretty hard, but I'm not sure what people were expecting, it was a lot like the first 3, just different people.

I'm losing interest after learning that China has already censored even the American version - the Chinese financial backers made the filmmakers remove the Japanese and Taiwanese flags from Tom Cruise's jacket. Fuck that movie.

I read that same story, but think about it when is the last time you saw China shown negatively in a Hollywood movie?

 

The Chinese pretty much own all of Hollywood , marvel transformers X-Men etc.

 

And didn’t anyone think it was odd when China shows up to save the day is that Mars movie? I’m sure they had no influence in that decision

I survived The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Pure, unadulterated dumpster fire.  So so so stupid.  Too many things that just aren't possible or even likely to happen just magically happen (let's forget about the dinosaurs).  I can't write any more about this movie.

Watched whatever the latest Godzilla movie is yesterday after work.  Mostly out of boredom...wife working, kids gone...and it was at the top of the page of movies that people ware watching.  To be fair, a lot of times movies jump to the top of the list because they've just come out on disc or digital so people are watching it because it's a good picture and not necessarily because it's a good movie.

^We watched that. Pretty crappy, but the boy enjoyed it so it was a worthwhile watch.

I am starting to burn out on movies. Not very many good ones being made anymore. Series are where the action is at now, but I often avoid the new series because I don't want to commit to something for that long, and/or it's too adult to watch around the kid. So instead I've been reading more and playing video games. Probably for the best....

Well, we actually went to see the Angry Birds Movie 2 this weekend, just because we were looking for something to do and the reviews stated it was surprisingly better than you would expect, or something like that. It wasn't the best movie I have seen this year, but I laughed out loud several times. There were some pretty well constructed gags in that movie. Good comedic timing.
