Re: Cruella

We can quibble about language but..."The film industry believed that the greatest threat to its continued success was posed by television."--Britannica. And I remember similar sentiments on the radio news before we had a tv. "Out of business may be hype, but I didn't make it up. How can you quote wh...

Re: Cruella

They said TV was gonna put Hollywood out of business back in the 50s. There's too many moving parts. WW84 is a real bad example, or actually a good example of Hollywood going lax and assuming good return for uninspired content. If they can't get a descent return for streaming, they'll resume the blo...

Re: Cruella

Not that it matters now, anyways. The coronavirus has killed Hollywood. Naw, they were already moving into the transformation to multiple formats, streaming, theatger and whatnot. But yeah, the theater experience will be drastically cut, multiplex to quadraplex or something. But it'll have it's nic...

Re: Iconic One-Liners

For the record, I used "Iconic" in the topic's title 2 or 3 years before some moron started using it in every other sentence.

Re: Cruella

I would hope it's nowhere near as bad as Maleficent. Seems like Disney likes to gets its jollies off in portraying its classic villains in a positive light, and thus far it hasn't been too enthralling. Yeah, if they try to cure her evil soul, or worse, turn her into a saint, I'm gonna demand my mon...

Cruella

I imagine the casting call for this had 'em lined around several blocks, and I'm pretty sure they got it right. She's one of my faves to begin with, and it does look intriguing. https://nypost.com/2021/02/16/emma-stone-reinvents-cruella-de-vil-in-2021-disney-movie/?utm_medium=browser_notifications&u...

Movie Streaming

Movie streaming really came into its own in 2020, driven of course by the shutdowns. But I draw the line at paying for any more than two services (Amazon Prime and Netflix). It's the late-comers like Disney and Apple who be wanting their monthly pound of flesh but who've only had one movie each that...

Re: Favourite Films Of All Time?

I have (20) 100s, two of which I elevate to 100+. I think it's of interest to note that only three of the twenty are from the 20th century. *Her (2013)-----------------100+ *The Accountant (2016)--100+ (500) Days of Summer (2009) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) Black Snake Moan (2007) The Counselor (20...

Easily recognizable one liners.

Should be recognizable at least among casual movie fans. One sentence. The quote should return the movie on a Google search. I could call most of these iconic, but I won't, I'm so sick of that overused word. "He's madly in love with his laptop."-- Her "I'll be back."-- The Terminator "I'll have what...
