So is anyone else salivating at the thought of a new Blade Runner very soon?

Trying not to - don't want to be disappointed!

Am getting hyped for Thor though.

Saw It.

Wasn't as good as the one from the 90s.

It was gorey but lacked the building up to horror that is lacking in modern horror movies where it all about jump scares and loud noises to make grandma have a heartattack.

Blade Runner: Will probably see it when it's ready but it should just be a TV series like West World imo. Ghost in the Shell had a tv series (animated) so why can't Blade Runner?

I thought the Ghost in the Shell movie that was made recently didn't capture the power of being a cyborg enough. If stories were told in episodic form, you can make more in-depth characters who can change over time to think about why they exist and what motivates them to do what they do and this works best to get people to think about the impact of the technology on society and how it affect us in negative and positive way. Eg notice how everyone looks like zombies when you walk on the streets with their phones with them? They are more connected to each other than ever but will ignore the local guy on the street who they could have talked to for strangers on social media. Everyone has become more cold and detached from friends and family in the real world for love and attention in the virtual world which is fake.
And now the feminists are using social media to push 4th wave feminist crap down our throats like a religious vagina worship cult that is taking over the entire world. Governments can use these tools to brainwash people into becoming more collectivist in thinking to get them to confrom like what organised religion used to do when people went to a church and the leader of that church group could shame anyone who disagreed with the leader's interpretation of things in the bible and use the people as a mob to harass the guy that disagreed with the leader's opinions on things.

How political groups can use social media as a weapon is by creating millions of sock pupet accounts to create a sense that their numbers are larger than they actually are and bully (through peer pressure) the free-thinking guy with original ideas to conform to the popular thinking of the day rather than everyone thinking for themselves so they don't need a social group to obtain validation from. And this would work best in tv series form than movie. Movie could be made as miniseries. Each season has one big replicant boss that is the mastermind behind things and taking them down is like trying to beat a boss in Metal Gear Solid game.

Thor Ragnarok 4 out of 5

The characters are all funny, (It's like a buddy cop movie like lethal weapon) the action is decent (too much twirling in mid air though) and it doesn't waste your time with useless bits that pad the running time. Hulk and Thor together as a team make a good mix because they are both reliant on pure strength to survive.

I'm getting jaded now so I wasn't hyped for it but taken alone as a comic movie, it has all the ingredients I want from this stuff. These comic movies are starting to feel more like soap operas now and the villains are not very deep and interesting enough to care about them or respect their presence. What I mean by this is how the villains are 2 dimensional characters but the heroes are 3 dimensional and it's a common flaw I see in these marvel flicks. They are good overall action flicks. But they forget that it's not about punching and kicking each other only. If the characters are not different enough from comics in film form, you are just recreating something we see from kids stories. They need to make bad guys as much the draw to see movies as much as the titled character.



If Logan was the depressing story, this one is the high energy funny action movie with happy ending to make you feel good (Thor never loses his spirit or lets doomsday events get him down or let it affect who he is as a classic hero )

Won't see Justice League. I'm tired of weak villains. Make the running time longer if you have to. You need serious bad guys that bring seriousness to the comic movie like the second Tobey McGuire Spiderman movie.

List of movies with shit villains:

Justice League
Thor Ragnarok
Wonder Woman

They need to make a reverse universe movie where the bad guys are the good guys and have to save the world from good guys who went evil because the bad guys don't want any competition. Sort of like the gangs in GTA2. They all fight each other for their own interests. Have Zack make this movie and make it hyper violent like Watchmen.

Enough trying to copy marvel and enough trying to make heroes dark. Just give us a dark world and go nuts with the deaths, murders, and fights, and make it like the Street Fighter Animated movie where the story takes a back seat to the fights. Geezus.
The moral of the movie is heroes would not be interesting if they didn't have villains to bash up and villains wouldn't be smart evil geniuses if they didn't have heroes to force them to come up with better master plans. Maybe they should stop fighting each other and bring an end to the war and fight for themselves instead of the normies for once? Normies have cops and the criminals have gangs. But super people have ruined so much property it might be cheapers if they were given a super planet for them to fight on whenever they have conflict so the earth doesn't blow up. On the super planets there are no cops, no buildings that can break, and everyone on the planet has super powers. Most of the animals are monsters that would normally be dangerous to normal people but pets to super heroes and super vilains. And the floor is indestructible so you can't cause earthquakes just be stomping the floor in anger after losing a game of chess and create sinkholes for people to fall into and die. If Hulk wanted to smash things, he could go crazy and never run out of stuff to smash because it regenerates after being destroyed to give him things to break when he gets angry. Basically it's the danger room from the X-men comics but it's a planet-wide version of this and all disputes are settled on the Super Planet instead of earth where fragile people exist which only get in the way of the fun fights.

Heard The Last Jedi was shit.

Return of the Jedi for millenials? Might have to pirate it first to see if it's worth seeing, then if it's not shit I see in theatres.
Hollywood hates originality. :(
Bring back George Lucas. Enough reboot stuff..




if you are White male you are going to die in star Wars. Disney SW = SJW fanfiction about star Wars to me. I see It as an alternate universe Or as a "what if?" story. The fans themselves have to be the ones to fill in the story and make that Canon.
Making lukę a loser had to happen based on being White Guy. Leia had to survive because feminism. Prequels as much as fans didńt like them, were free of SJW stuff.
