    IKEA commercials.

    I just found out that Swedish actress Celie Sparre, who is Smilla in the current IKEA commercials, is happily engaged. Which is a bummer since I wanted to marry her. biggrin

    Why are you watching IKEA commercials? Don't get me wrong; it's a refreshing change of pace in this thread, which is now all about superhero movies.

    Because they use to come along in commercial breaks, don't they?

    Will Infinity War the last Marvel movie?

    That'd be great!

    It's called infinity war, so perhaps not...
  2. The only way they stop making those movies is if they stop making money, and that doesn't look like it's ever going to happen, so...
  3. This. It is the end of a cycle. But there will be prequels. sequels, re-imaginations, you name it. Disney will ride this horse to death. And the other one too.

    I've considered doing a non-Hollywood/superhero "Recent Viewing" thread as a counterweight to this. Would it have the capacity to live, you think?

  5. Anything non-Hollywood / Arthaus related could came across as snobby, don't you think. I myself have thought about a "Recent viewing: My special film" threat that would deal with personal favourites beyond what is currently in cinemas. But having everything in one place seems ultimately the best solution.

    No, why would it? It's just a matter of watching different kinds of films. Except for superhero stuff, I love a good Hollywood romp like the next guy. But if I could only watch that, it would be a very one-sided diet. It would be refreshing to discuss these types of films without getting buried in the umpteenth Marvel or DC extravaganza. Maybe I'll start one this weekend, over a beer! smile

    Haven't seen it yet, but I'd love too. FANTASTIC MR. FOX is actually one of the few Anderson films I like; I think I can more easily digest his quirky characters and tone in the animated films. So I have high hopes for this.

    perhaps the marvel screenwriters have lost it, but there are plenty of other showrunners, directors, and authors who still do this. it hasn't been 'lost' simply because several franchises don't use it.

  9. Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome (2012)

    A pilot-turned web series and a really strong film. The proposed show, featuring a young Williams Adama, was not picked up obviously, but this film is worthwhile all the same. I love the Galactica franchise and this is a great instalment. It being all CGI it gives a good idea how Babylon 5 would look like today.

  10. Among other things, I'm doing a BSG rewatch at the moment, but chronologically, beginning with Caprica. Since Blood & Chrome is the only thing I haven't seen yet from the series, I'm really looking forward to it.

    BTW, the German FedCon is having a BSG reunion this month, with nearly all members of the (big) main cast attending, so any BSG fans interested should check it out.
  11. Olmos is coming too?!

    Men In Black

    I watched this as a kid years ago and loved it. Rewatching it tonight I was surprised to find I remembered almost every scene, almost every line of dialogue... It was really a movie that stuck with me when I first saw it. Every scene is so memorable! And what a weird, weird movie it is...

    Jamie Bamber is the only one of the BSG bunch for now who had to cancel due to other commitments. Usually, there are a few last minute cancellations. I never expect anyone to show up until they are on stage.

    But the BSG lineup at the moment is:
    Edward James Olmos
    Mary McDonnell
    Michael Hogan
    Katee Sackhoff
    James Callis
    Tricia Helfer
    Grace Park
    Rekha Sharma
    Tahmoh Penikett
    Alessandro Juliani
    Rekha Sharma
    Michael Trucco
    Kandyse McClure
    Aaron Douglas

    From Star Trek:
    Jason Isaacs
    Jonathan Frakes
    Brent Spiner

    And a strange Gremlins reunion, too:
    Zach Galligan
    Daphne Zuniga

    It seems such a daunting task with all those episodes ahead of me!

    Enjoying THE EXPANSE on Netflix. Half way through season 2 and it seems to be trying to be a more recent version of BSG (from what I know of BSG).

    Yes, it's a good show, although the first season is the best. It falters a bit in the second season, and gets too complicated and political for its own good. It eventually focusses its a plot a bit more in season 3, which is currently running.

  15. The Royal Wedding

    It's sunny weather here. So we had a little garden party with BBQ and cake and the TV running in the background. Nice. smile

  16. Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)

    I wasn't sold by this one really. The animation and the atmosphere is fine, Conroy's and Hamill's voice acting is great. Yet the A and the B story seem disconnected, they run more like two TV episodes. Some plot elements harken back to 1989's Batman, others to The Return of the Dark Knight. It's OK but I have seen better Batman features.

    Saw SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY this morning. Absolutely loved it! And a spectacular score by John Powell! Perhaps a bit too bombastic for my taste these days, but the sheer scope of thematic material, rollicking action licks and perfect Williams hommages were astounding. This is everything ROGUE ONE was not.
