The Dark Tower. No buzz. Nothing. Nada. No threads. Only one recent article (USA Today). No reviews, and it's out in two days. One of King's most popular series, over 1.3 million words total. Zilch.

Is this a bad sign?

RNRAmerican hate crap.

There, THAT was easy.

Uh-huh. And that explains the success of the Transformer series, right?

Bring Bond into present day. Geez, with all the stuff going on in the world, they could make another 25 movies. And think of the tech!

This place never changes. I can go back to when I joined and find the same type of posts and arguments. I guess there's something to say for consistency, but it's probably not printable.

Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss): You were on the Indianapolis?
Brody (Roy Scheider): What happened?
Quint: Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know... was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh huh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.
Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He's a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and start to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water, three hundred and sixteen men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

Appropriate story for Independence Day. Heroism is real.

They COULD NOT have come up with a better tag line. Just chilling.

Please, God, make it worthy...

Aside all the studio maneuverings, politics, and "creative differences", I still can't imagine any interest at all for a Han Solo movie without Han Solo.

What's next? Recast Luke and find out what he did between Episodes VI and VII?

Check out Leia's teenage years (with a different actress, of course)?

Seriously, is there a reason for this movie? I mean, other than money?

Robin McDonaldWhen I saw Avatar I felt I had just experienced for the first time an entirely new form of entertainment. I am not expecting that out of Valerian.
I'm rooting for a form of the sensibility and amazing creativity to shine through that I saw in Fifth Element.

Yesterday there was next to zero chance I would be going to see Wonder Woman.?
The buzz and enthusiasm I am hearing from people who have seen it and orgasmic comments like definitely the best film ever in the DCEU and 'critics can't find anything bad to say about this movie'. There is now next to zero chance I won't be seeing Wonder Woman. Its like that scene in When Harry Met Sally....I'll have what she's having.



Avatar was an interesting experiment, nothing more.

As for WW, the buzz certainly isn't here on RT, but that really doesn't surprise me. And elsewhere? Yes, trailers are all over TV, and you can find all sorts of tweets by people who were invited to special screenings and such, who praise the movie to high heaven, but we're 8 days from release and there isn't a legitimate review to be found anywhere.

That being said, the trailers look good, the cast looks good, the LOOK looks good, and DC really, really, REALLY needs a winner. I'm rooting for it to be a good fun time and a critical success, too, but I'm a bit worried there's nothing beyond tweets by people who got free tickets (and more, I'm sure) to be found.

I watched some You Tube reviews of Wonder Woman. ?They were ecstatic to the point of almost crying at how good it was. Especially the woman reviewers.

Appreciate the comment, thanks. But I'm talking about in print. So far, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Reminiscent of BvS and SS. Not a good sign.

Don't misunderstand me. I want WW to be a success. DC needs a winner, and they also need to keep Marvel on their toes. Especially since it's DC who is doing the first superhero movie headlining a woman, which Marvel has yet to do, for whatever reason. So yes, I hope the movie is as good as the trailers.

I can still remember believing Episode I would be just as epic as IV-VI.

There were parts that were. Very few, but parts.

Feuer und Eis

Feuer und EisWill Ridley Scott redeem himself for his 21st century dreck?

I loved Prometheus and The Martian. What is wrong with you people? I'm sick and tired of this RedLetterMedia cynical bullshit with any creative expansion upon something THAT ISN'T FUCKING MARVEL.

The Martian was good. Prometheus was a great idea with horrific execution.

What does any of this have to do with Marvel?

Excuse the fainted grudge against this sense of pop culture being dictated by a single entity as the only form of acceptable entertainment without question. I may have overstepped my boundaries.

Apology accepted. I understand your concern and it's not completely unwarranted.

Honestly, I was really looking forward to Prometheus, and it started well. Then... things went awry, you could say.

Rated NCC-1701This thing cannot rape my eyeballs fast enough.

Wait, was that Pauley Perette? Cuz that would be noice.

PS: No Rachel, yet Deckard lives. Gonna need some context on this, movie.

Lots of stuff online about Sean Young not being cast. That being said, there are plenty of stories about her being, shall we say, difficult to work with. So there's that.

And yes, context will be necessary.
