The thread for movies that aren't going to get their own thread but are still in theaters

Snake Eyes I didn't really care for it that much. Action scenes were boring. Arrow tv show had better fight scenes. The plot has a simple find out who killed a guy thing going but it was still hard to follow. Multiple times I was like what does this have to do with finding the killer. The camera work was bad. There was a point where he gets a bike and they don't show the bike. They kind of made it out that it was a boss bike but they didn't give a good shot of it until like 20 minutes later and it wasn't that boss.

I might have fell asleep during it. So maybe I should try watching it again. They introduce one joe and then she just kind of pops up near the end. I have no idea how or why she pops up when she does. I feel like I must have missed a scene or two. None of the characters were memorable.

I guess it was better than the first gi joe movie but not as good as the second one. Might not be fare to compare them since this is just a snake eyes movie not a full on gi joe movie. I wonder if this movie even started off as joe movie.

I gave it another watch and I did indeed miss a couple of key scenes. So the story does make sense mostly but everything else is still bad.

80's me wants Joe's to reach MCU+Star Wars levels of pop culture stardom.

But then I remember it's a toy line that thrived because of Reagan's 80s and it just doesn't fit in today's world. Oh well. I'll just have to continue to watch Vin Diesel and Dwayne and Statham and Stringer Bell and Michelle Rodriguez bro out in that other throwback to vehicle-based machismo and pretend they're Gung Ho and Roadblock and Flint and General Flagg and Jinx.

Me too buddy...me too...Same with I want more good transformers movies like Bumblebee kind of was. They still don't really get it.

There's only one Kevin Feige to go around, I guess.

The Green Knight what the F did I just watch. I don't know but it was pretty, might want to see it on the big screen if you aren't staying away form covid factories. You won't have to do any drugs or maybe you should do a lot of drugs when seeing this movie.

The trailer told you what the movie is about and that is exactly what the movie is about. It is like if it was a movie about taking a trip to the grocery store and on that trip the hero ran into space aliens, Elvis, and a horny woman. Then when the hero gets back home you find out he forgot the milk, damn. None of that is in this movie but that is what the movie is like.

This will completely ruin the movie or maybe not if you are high. I could be high now.

Spoiler:

There is a fable about a woman that wears a ribbon around her neck. She tells her husband she can never take it off.

I think this movie was a series of converted fables the ribbon lady being one of them except they changed it to sash. Each fable is a test or trial for the green knight not The Green Knight.

He used that sash to clean up and didn't clean it before wearing it, gross.

Watched The Green Knight a second time. Much better the second time and I liked it first time I seen it. Picked up on a few things I missed the first go around.

Also watched Risen which is a terrible movie. I'm doing Halloween early and this failed as a Halloween movie. Thought there would be things. There were no things. All the things were gone.

Also the B plot was just a reveal not a plot.

Spoiler:

The way the lady was acting I thought she was molested as kid by her father. Nope turns she is just a weird alien that we find out about in the last 10 minutes of the film. Then everyone dies from lack of breathable air. The alien changed Earth so they can live on it .

I would have nuked the planet. unleashed every nuke on Earth turning it into a radioactive waste. What they didn't do for a ending was stupid. The movie built up to nothing, it was just okay THE END. Bad movie, terrible movie, rotten movie. You are no First Contact, You are not Arrival, You are not Dawn of the Dead, You are not anything. You are the Fantastic Four idiot brother but without any good looking people to at least look at.

I think I'm going to need a Baron of Hell review of all movies from now on. At least the ones I'm thinking of watching.

Dune was freaking amazing and I just might go see it a second time in theaters. Which I haven’t done since Titanic and that was under duress.

I’ve never read the novel. Do you think I’d enjoy the film?

You might have a hard time getting into it because there’s A LOT to take into, a lot of exposition. A close friend has never read the book and noped out of the Lynch film about half an hour in and still enjoyed it but appreciated it better on the second viewing. I think non Dune fans can still enjoy it because there’s a lot of world building, it’s gorgeous and the actors are brillant. Just don’t expect a fast paced action movie, this is not it.
Im going back tomorrow.

And it doesn't end from what I've heard (it's a part 1 of 2).

That is correct. I can specify exactly where it ends for those who want to know what they're getting into.

Spoiler:

The movie ends right after Paul kills Jamis and as they're making their journey towards Sietch Tabr.

The biggest complaint from non readers (and why are there so many of them? Go read it!) I've seen has been that the 2nd half of the movie drags on too much.

Got a screening of Dune last night. I've never read the books but plan to. Really well done. Inhad forgotten it was broken up so I was amazed at the pacing. My friend who is a huge Dune fan came with me and thought it was very well done all things considered. I've loved everything this Director has done so if you've liked his other work you'll like this probably. Such great talent, visuals, and everything!

I'll say as a dad of young kids I did take a few eye rests for a second or two in the slow motion flashbacks or flashfuture scenes but I never fell asleep. That's a me problem not the movie.

Definitely less slow motion than the Snyder cut.

8 of 9 spice vessels. Production to increase per the Emperor!
