Can you give us many examples of it done right? Because the group that tends to complain about these things seem to hate it all. I can't see them being positive about any female-led movie, unless it's a pornographic one. I was wondering the same thing. In a billion dollar facility, they couldn't even have a couple cameras pointed towards the most important specimens and subjects in that whole place. They even had roaming security guards, and one notices an employee drifting in and out of the place. That place has awful security (more like the writers conveniently left the cameras out of this scene to let Eddie do his thing) My guess is Sony and Disney worked this deal out since it would easily benefit them both. Sony needed help to make Spider-Man work again, after the tepid reception of Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield. And MCU finally getting to use Spider-Man just makes everything better. As for Venom, my other guess is -- Disney still doesn't know if a Venom movie will work out not, hence no deal. Spider-Man is well established as "movie viable", Venom is not. Now that the Venom movie is out, you can see why Disney didn't rush to make a deal. While I had some intermittent fun with the film, it's also kind of a mess at times (and that dialogue...lol). It's a sloppy movie that I enjoyed, but make no mistake, it's a sloppy movie compared to MCU films. Is this on Netflix? Sounds interesting - I'll try to check it out I'm not sure what OP was getting at with those (Air Force One? lol) But I did like the other recommendations like Into the Wild, 127 Hours, Kon-Tiki and The Martian. It's not the worst thing ever, but you can tell it doesn't look as good as what we saw in Ant-Man and other Marvel films. If Ant-Man was 90% there (or even higher), Gemini Man looks like something between 70%-80% there. For me, the mouth movements for the young Will Smith look very dodgy. Check out the trailer to see what we mean. [quote]He's striking false notes, there are moments when he seems like an actor rather than a real person, which is a first from him in my experience.[/quote] Without having seen it, I can already understand what you mean here. I see that quite a few times in films. I'll always use the Meryl Streep example in Doubt. Her mannerisms and facial ticks were just too much in that movie, you end up only seeing "Meryl Streep Acting", rather than the character which should have been played in a more subdued manner. But anyways, I did not know much about how Fosse acted in real life so unfortunately I'm not able to make any actor suggestions. For some reason I always have the image of Roy Scheider in my head, even though his All That Jazz character was a loose semi-autobiographical version of Fosse. I was not aware of this show and had no idea Sam Rockwell/Michelle Williams were in it. I'll try to check it out - thanks for the reminder! They said this will be the last SW movie with Skywalkers (not a spoiler, that was an official Lucasfilm statement), but the title suggests this series will...keep on going? My guess is this is truly the end of the Skywalker story, but we will learn that Skywalker lives in [i]us[/i] all this time. When we go to the bank, supermarket, the mall or Applebee's. We are them. I'm leaning towards the two victims (and others) telling the truth. I could be wrong, but man was this documentary a compelling argument for the side of the accusers. In the last 40 minutes of the Leaving Neverland documentary, it becomes powerful. Either these people are incredible actors that rival Daniel Day Lewis, or they really are telling the truth. Another reason I believe them -- their stories are not only vivid, but they remember the painful and confused swirl of emotions and motivations behind Michael's (and their own) actions. They remember context. Fabricators (as experts say) leave out context and sound robotic. Ask them how they felt and they kind of have the same two rehearsed answers, like bullet points. They don't think about how their mom and dad felt twenty years ago, how it affected the family, the wife, what school was like, or what was going through their mind at the time. The two victims here, across 4 hours, provide ample explanations why they chose to do something or think something at the time. They have explanations [i]surrounding[/i] the offending actions. That is not what you usually see "fake victims" do - who usually don't think that far ahead when making up stories. They didn't live it, so it never occurs to them to fill those parts in. Here, the victims tell you exactly the crushed and defeated pose their wife made when she learns of this horrible secret. The victims recount how nauseated and confused they felt at work, and how it affected their personal life and the arguments. They vividly remember what was going on through their families at the time, how they got a last glimpse of dad, and how everything was slowly unraveling in every facet of their life. One victim remember testifying and defending Michael to "get back" at another kid that replaced him -- he remember the feeling of wanted to get [b]revenge.[/b] Those are details you see from people who live through things. You seldom see so much detail from fabricators. [quote]I call her The WalMarter[/quote] lol ^^^ View all replies >
