ScarJo is a good actress, but she's also one of the richest. I don't think ScarJo needs anyone defending her :P

Unless I find out that an actor//actress has super skreeonked up views, like open racism or some poop, their personal opinions don't deter me or persuade me to see or enjoy films by them.

What if they said GODZILLA movie 1998 was just as good if not better than Gojira movie 1954?

I'm not saying her opinion is smart or warranted. Still as long as it doesn't hurt someone else or insight hatred and violence towards others it's her's to have.

Brad Pitt says the cancelled WWZINO sequel would've been really good.

Eh, didn't care for the first one (a TON of plot/logic holes and lack of blood in a ZOMBIE movie pretty much ruined it for me as did the nonstop shaky cams that made it impossible to tell WTF is going on and having jack all to do with the book except the title), so I really don't give a poop if there's no sequel TBH.

The Honest Trailer pretty much nailed it as did the 2 parter on YMS's channel:

Your Local Theater Might Never Screen Classics Like 'Die Hard' Again, Thanks to Disney

For years, independent theaters have been able to screen old movies from 20th Century Fox's catalog, an archive of more than 2,000 films that stretches from the silent era in the 1920s all the way up to the present day. It's what allows your favorite local movie house to put on Die Hard and Home Alone at Christmastime, or show Fight Club in 35 millimeter film, or bring classics like The Sound of Music back to the big screen. But after its merger with Fox, Disney is refusing to let some indie theaters access 20th Century Fox's catalog—causing panic among cinemas that rely on it to survive.

That's actually a really scary and direct reason to show why and how Disney's monopoly is a dangerous thing to art (rather then conspiratorial things).

It's a shame because seeing a movie you really like on the big screen is such a great experience. When I lived in NYC I would go to indie theaters all the time. Thankfully the Angelika should be safe, but rip Sunrise.

Disney has always been about having control over the market. Even before home video (and putting films in “the vault”) they were very selective about what could be rented on 16mm and by who, because they made a lot of money in otherwise lean years by reissuing their classic catalog across the country.

Fortunately this only affects theaters that show first-run and catalog titles. Repertory theaters are presently unaffected. But it’s not a good sign.

It was only a matter of time before a movie would capitalize on the selfie trend.

Just like Sony tried capitalizing on the popular emoji trend with The Emoji Movie. It failed (as Sony productions typically do), but they tried.

Every year there’s always a lot of really bad low budget horror films, but that’s fine as every year there’s also usually a few really stellar.

HBO is turning Maniac Cop into a show, Nicolas Winding Refn is charge of the production.

This is isn't that surprising, seeing as they nearly run out of main stream movies and TV shows to reboot. I would like to see it, but I'm doubtful that will happen. All the big, new streaming services seem to strictly focussed on the US only.

It's been confirmed by Sony themselves that Carnage isn't the only villain in Venom 2. Get ready to see Shriek!

I would add a link but trying to make one on my phone will take all day. I'm gonna add one when I get home.

I assume you all have heard about the stunt woman who lost her arm and half her face on the set of the last Resident Evil film (The Final Chapter), right? She filed a lawsuit earlier this year because none of the production companies would compensate her for her serious life-altering injuries she suffered from an ill-prepared and poorly-managed film production set that, need I remind you, also killed another crew member. Well, guess what? Paul W.S. Anderson is now trying to get that lawsuit thrown out.

Wow, what a piece of poop. Garbage human AND garbage director/writer.
