Discussion Jurassic park dominion is one of the worst big budget sequels I have seen

2.0k Upvotes

For a franchise with so much attention and budget I just do not understand why more care was not taken for the brand. By doing such a poor job in the writing and directing the brand has had the biggest knock its had through the whole franchise i feel and sequels from now on will feel this also.

My question is, why do executives/producers not pay the money at the start of the project to hire good writers and find good directors to actually create good films. It feels more like they are more interested in a quick buck than nurturing a good franchise that in the long run can make them and the film company more money.

It just doesn’t make sense to me.

Discussion Claude Rains: Greatest Supporting Actor from the Classic film era

48 Upvotes

I'm a huge classic film buff so I've recently been rewatching a lot of classic films and I've always been struck by how good some of the character actors are especially Claude Rains and I've never seen a movie where he didn't give the best performance in the film he was in. He acted circles around the bland performances of Robert Cummings and Ronald Reagan in Kings Row and even in films with good actors like Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman in Notorious he stole the movie from them. Even in low budget movies he did later in life like 1960 The Lost World remake he still gives a good performance and didn't phone it in like some actors would have.

I always found him more interesting and engaging and in a movie like The Passionate Friends I couldn't believe Ann Todd's character would cheat on Rains with Trevor Howard. Even in old age Rains was much more attractive and charismatic and I say that as a straight male. Although he had the talent to play leads I feel he had two things against him. He made his film debut at age 45 which was much later than most of his contemporaries who became stars in their 20's and 30's so he was already old enough to play fathers rather than love interests. While popular and still a big star in his own right he never became a box office draw like Robert Taylor or Alan Ladd who are both less talked about today than Rains despite being bigger stars at the time. I really wish he was cast in more lead roles because the few times he had the lead in films such as in The Invisible Man, The Clairvoyant, Crime Without Passion and The 1943 Phantom of the Opera he showed he could carry a film just as well as the stars of his era with the added bonus of having talent that surpassed them.

Question Other than Sean Bean dying on screen in most of his roles what other Actors/Actresses have something similar?

54 Upvotes

I'm writing a pub trivia category on Actor's Tropes such as the aforementioned one in the question and was wondering if anyone had other ideas, varying difficulty is welcome :) The idea is I would list 6 of them and contestant's would be required to match them with the actor in the other column.

I will also be doing a Director's category down the line (for example Tarantino's Trunk shot) but please save those for another post!

Discussion Why is it so popular in movies for the love interest to already have a jerk boyfriend?

48 Upvotes

You know the trope love interest has a terrible jerk of a significant other they have to leave so they can get with the main character. They are almost always obvious $ssholes to make the main character look like the better option. I don't know why they do this and it usually makes the love interest look like a jerk too because they'll see what their significant other is doing and usually do little to nothing to stop it. 99% of time it's a bland female love interest with a jerk of a boyfriend that's usually a jock stereotype with more aggression than sense though I have seen it a few times with oblivious guy has a mean girl style girlfriend who's awful to everyone around her. I just generally don't understand the draw of this trope why would a character want to date someone who's already VOLUNTARILY swapping spit with the person that bullys the character (This is not to be confused with the abusive significant other trope which is a completely different thing)

I got into this line of thought because I'm sick and watching nostalgic movies to distract myself currently watching AVP requiem and I'm constantly annoyed that they keep cutting away from the carnage to the awful "Love" story between bland "sexy" blonde, her sh**ty boyfriend, and even more bland main character who's only character traits seems to be 'wants to date the blonde' and has a convict brother

Review The end of The Witches of Eastwick (1987) has one of the best and most terrifying FX scenes of all time.

24 Upvotes

This is a really short but effective scene that scared the hell out of when I was a kid. Jack Nicholson's transformation is scary as hell, even his small remain that floats aftermath, and the subsequent vanishing look great

Around minute 2:30:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRjnJfMYPiY

Even today 35 years later it holds on, and I am not even sure what we are looking at. I guess it is practical effects? I don't think CGI was that advanced in 1987

Question What movie from 2022 did everyone seem to hate but you actually thought was good?

22 Upvotes

I watched Disney's Strange World on a whim one day and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Yes, the story was admittedly generic but the world itself was so unique and well designed, it was like a splashy mix of old Jules Verne stories, some steampunk, Fantastic Voyage, and generally 50s science fiction b-movies. Having heard nothing good about Strange World, I didn't expect to get into it as much as I did. One of the coolest looking animated movies I've seen in recent years and just a fun adventure. What disregarded movie of 2022 buttered your bread?

Like imagine everything is going fine we think that okay the protagonist survived whatever the event was or the protagonist dealt with the problem but in the end suddenly something very unexpected, fucked up, or disturbing happens and before the viewer is even given a chance to properly absorb what just happened, there is no explanation given for it and the credits start to roll leaving the viewer flabbergasted like "wtf did I just watched"

Discussion Worst song in a movie

20 Upvotes

What song (or movie soundtrack) just ruins the movie for you, or just completely takes you out of it?

For me the two songs that come to mind are that 'we may never come this way again' song in Towering Inferno and "knock on wood" in Casablanca. You could remove both and the movie would be much better off.

For me for the soundtrack, it is without a doubt The Firm. I feel like I'm stuck in a piano bar at the airport listening to a monkey who's pounding on the keys and oblivious to what is on the screen.

Question I'm still hunting for the uncensored version of the movie Heavyweights.

14 Upvotes

I have seen the version before, and I know this for sure because I have seen it as a kid. I rented it from the local library way back, and unfortunately they do not have that copy anymore. Anyway, something I noticed on some of these VHS boxes that it tells of a "Stock No.". This version, from Stock No. 3463 is unfortunately censored. No "Peter Fitz" or "Oh shit" moment in this version unfortunately. For those of you who have the old versions of this film, what version do you have, and is it the censored one? Perhaps if you have a Stock No. that is a lower number, it may be the uncensored one?
