Would be great for Villeneuve to return, but he's working on Dune right now, and it wouldn't surprise me to see Deakins work with him again there. James Mangold doesn't have a Boba Fett movie going right now, get him on board! Maybe Hoyte Van Hoytema too.
    I'd love to see Sheridan direct one of the films.

    In an unrelated topic, Deakins on a Dune film just seems like a perfect match.

    Iím sure there were more but the two that stood out to me were:

    Spoiler:

    1) Why did they allow Lena to see and know about The Shimmer? ďArea XĒ doesnít sound like the kind of place they just give a civilian (ex-Army or not, wife or not) total access to. It was obviously a covert government site. The reality of government security clearance seemed to be entirely disregarded.

    2) Why did they allow Lena to go with them? ďI want to help my husbandĒ doesnít cut it. Having an Army background doesnít grant you top secret clearance by default. People work their asses off for decades for that kind of clearance.


    I realize itís a movie and a lot has to be squeezed into a couple hours of screen time, so these holes didnít necessarily ruin it for me. I just chalked it up to not having read the books. I bet there were quite a few more holes that I didnít notice because I did end up getting into the movie.

    Side note: the music/sounds at the end were awesome. Clever juxtaposition of the southern style guitar riff on repeat throughout the movie until that point.

    You're focusing on the wrong things my G. Don't see those as plot holes, but rather plot conveniences to move the events along, like you mentioned.
    In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same.

    It didnít ruin the movie for me by any means. I just remember muttering something to myself about it when I noticed, at which point my wife said, ďwhat?Ē and I responded, ďnothing, this is why I usually read the book first.Ē

    I saw both Ant-Man and The Wasp and The Incredibles 2 recently. Ant-Man and The Wasp was a fun light hearted follow up to the first movie, and was kinda the breather needed after Infinity War. It was loads of fun and I'd call it better than the first one. Only real negative I have is a completely pointless sub plot with the secondary villain. Though it did give us a great Luis narrated scene.

    The Incredibles 2 on the other hand I found a bit disappointing. Visually it's loads better than the first movie, you can really tell how far the tech behind Pixar has come in that amount of time. The set pieces are pretty great and there's some really funny stuff with Jack-Jack. Overall though the story (theme wise) is a complete rehash of the first movie, which is pretty disappointing because after the first one you'd assume we get a full movie of them working as a super family, but unfortunately that's not what we get.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp was a pure fun and entertaining movie to watch all the way through, something these latest super hero movies have been lacking lately. I feel because it was so amusing to me it was one of Marvels better movies recently.
    I didn't go into analyzing it to deeply, they made the tie ins to other movies easily enough and kept it lighthearted, like Dan said, just what it kind of needed.

    But good fiction, especially Sci-Fi should at least be believable. I mean they debriefed in quarantine and Bio-suits, but they let them waltz into the alien shimmer in standard jungle ensemble's? No shit that the shimmer began affecting them in no time. Stupid plot IMO. Looks like I stand alone in that thinking, sigh. To me there was just too much no common sense plot points like I've stated and, Cody stated. I did manage to get my money back from DTV though. Albeit for different reasons but what the hell, right? lol lol

    Equalizer 2:


    First Denzel sequel. Watching the movie is like slipping into an old pair of shoes-you know exactly what to expect. Predictable (Denzel lives, everyone else who is bad dies), yet enjoyable. With the R rating, the violence has been taken to a high level (never let Denzel get a hold of your credit card).

    Director Fuqua takes the final standoff to a somewhat ridiculous level, but it still is tense.
    Illogical scene in finally



    4/6 beers on the RFSRS.

    Mission Impossible: Fallout was fantastic. Best action movie since Mad Max: Fury Road. See it in IMAX!

    I haven't watched a Mission Impossible movie since Pt. II.

    Is knowledge of the previous entries a necessity?

    I've skipped everything with Cruise (in the theater) since War of the Worlds. I may give this a go...Probably not but maybe.

    You mean neither of you have been watching the best action franchise of all time? Mission Impossibles 3-6 have been terrific. I'd say watch 3-6 just because you won't regret it, and there is a kind of background plot from 3-6 that has a nice payoff in this movie. Characters go from one to the other, but 6 is the first true sequel in the franchise, following up from 5.

    I can't imagine not watching Tom Cruise movies. Who hates good movies? Well, Mummy aside lol

    Yeah, Cruise is a bit of a quack, but he's a quack that learns to fly helicopters and scales buildings to make great movies, so I forgive him lol
