    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    There’s 4 A’s in the picture.
  2. Yes, there is an increasing trends towards including locations, products and/or references that would mean something to the Chinese audience in blockbuster but the idea that Marvel should replace a Blockbuster video store, simply because it wasn't a thing in China is fucking nuts.
  3. I like the kind of howl-thing that's going on in the soundtrack. Goosebumpy stuff.
  4. Apart from the punching the old lady bit* and a brief glimpse on the beach, they've hidden the whole secret invasion by Skrulls part of the story. I imagine later trailers will really run with that. *I mean, I assume she's a Skrull. Maybe Marvel are taking the films in a bold new direction and she isn't one, she's just an old fuck.

    Gareth Evans' Apostle - September 28th on Netflix

    Very much My Shit TM but those brief shots of Stevens' dishing out Raid-style fighting at 1:34 look weirdly out of place.

    Good write up, @strider even if I didn't get on with the film as much as you did. I found it strangely empty story. I'll agree about Ramsay though. One of the best directors working today; that she's not recognised more is a crime.
  7. When they’re running away from the protectors of the skulls, they are outside; same with the Uni Bike chase and the Ant fight. The South America stuff was all filmed on the Universal backlot though.
  8. He did 45 days on 'The Post'.
  9. IIRC, he had a self-imposed shooting schedule of no more than 50 days for Crystal Skull and didn't want to leave the US*, hence all the studio-shot exteriors and excesive CGI which make the film look like fucking shit. *Might not have been Spielberg that this applied to, might have been Ford.

    What are you reading at the moment?

    Re-reading Jeff Long's 'The Descent' - read this years ago - even started a screenplay adaptation of it, with the lofty idea I'd somehow be able to secure the rights and sell it to Hollywood - but am really enjoying going through it again. It's wonderfully nasty at times, would recommend it. Also re-read 'Skull Session' by Daniel Hecht, which, again, I'd read years ago. Was disappointed to find it slightly less than I remember; a lot of reveals that stunned me first time around are so obviously telegraphed that I must have been half-asleep first time I read it. I'd still recommend it as a good page turning thriller, just slightly sad that it didn't live up to the memory.
  11. Jaume Collet-Serra, Liam Neeson baddie. I'm repeating myself I'm sure but both would be a perfect fit for the Bond franchise.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    No 'Pubic Triangle' pop up at 5:27 in that Edinburgh vid. Pre-order cancelled.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    My tolerance for Tarkin is probably greater than most people's but I'll give you it; he should have been a hologram only. With the exception of the pilot (sorry, Riz Amhed, I don't know what your name was!), I liked how they handled all the deaths (though 5 of the 6 being killed by explosions is a little samey). Still, I forgive it all for the destruction of Scarif and the final scene between Jyn and Cassian. Endlessly rewatchable.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One is hateful? Rogue One with the genuinely funny robot? Rogue One with the genuinely savage ending for Our Plucky Heroes? Rogue One that has both Donny Yen and Ben Mendelhson being 100% awesome in their roles? Shurely shome mistake, Moneypenny....
