His work is already quite dazzling, to me anyway and it makes me sad to think about what his career really could have been....

    In the same vein and covering some similar ground, I saw this the other night....

    I have a Midsommar digital code looking for a good home. First person to ask for it in this thread, gets it. NOTE: I would prefer it goes to someone who is dying to see it and knows what they are getting themselves into. Midsommar is not for everyone.

    Lighthouse and Once Upon I need to see. But Parasite was a no for me and I turned it off. John Wick, Spider-Man I loved a lot this year and would be on my top 5. Mine are in no real order:
    1) Joker
    2) Wick 3
    3) Endgame
    4) Spider-Man
    5). US

    I know The Lighthouse was filmed near you and therefore provides you with a unique interest in the film, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that film is not your cup of tea.

    You are probably correct. However it does peak my interest for that reason and I did like the trailer. I’m hoping I like it haha

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/6/2...n-finding-jack
    James Dean is making his return to the big screen more than 60 years after dying in a car crash, thanks to two VFX companies.

    Finding Jack is a movie set within the Vietnam-era that is “based on the existence and abandonment of more than 10,000 military dogs at the end of the Vietnam War,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Dean isn’t the leading role, but his performance as “Rogan” is “considered a secondary lead role,” according to the Reporter. Finding Jack marks the first movie that Dean will star in since Giant in 1956, just one year after his iconic role as Jim Stark in Rebel Without a Cause.

    Magic City Films, the company producing the movie, obtained the rights to Dean’s image from his family. The goal is to re-create “a realistic version of James Dean,” the film’s directors told the Reporter. To do so, they’re working with Canadian VFX studio Imagine Engine and South African VFX company MOI Worldwide. Dean’s body will be fully re-created using CGI technology, and another actor will voice his lines.

    “We searched high and low for the perfect character to portray the role of Rogan, which has some extreme complex character arcs, and after months of research, we decided on James Dean,” co-director Anton Ernst told the Reporter.

    It’s unclear exactly what any of that means, especially since there are thousands upon thousands of living actors who are probably capable of performing the role. Acquiring the rights to actors’ looks and using them for CGI re-creation purposes isn’t totally new — just look at Furious 7 or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — but it is a conversation Hollywood is taking more seriously than ever. Vox critic Alissa Wilkinson touched upon the problem this faces in her review of Gemini Man, Ang Lee’s action movie that stars Will Smith and a younger version of Will Smith who plays his clone. Wilkinson wrote:

    So just imagine the options if you could perfectly recreate any actor — and the potential savings (and earning potential) for a movie studio that owns the rights to, say, the perfect replica of Keanu Reeves or Angelina Jolie or Will Smith, all while sharing licensing with the actor’s estate. You might doubt it will ever be done; I would put money on it happening in the next decade, unless somehow the industry unions intervene. It’s already happened before, with actors like the late Peter Cushing recreated for Rogue One. And if you can recreate actors, you can create them, too, replacing the need to hire people to play all of those parts where nobody knows the actor’s name anyhow.

    Was James Dean really the only actor who could play this role? Doubtful. Whether it’s a marketing stunt that will draw attention to the movie or the future of cinema, it’s representative of a world we may soon be living in.

    I think it's a potentially fascinating opportunity for Hollywood, but at the end of the day, I don't see how it's financially viable. The cost for the CGI will be 3 times what it would be to hire a living actor. I see it as a gimmick and that's not what James Dean or any deceased Hollywood icon should become.

    Yeah, it's weird. It's not really him. They're not using his voice. What if the role is super cheesy... It's an odd choice to cast a dead actor in a role. What if it's nothing they would have chosen themselves?

    One of my favorite horror movies of this decade is The Woman (2011) and now Amazon Prime is streaming the sequel Darlin': https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S5SMC44/ I have been highly anticipating it since the trailer and I can't wait to finally watch it!

    I saw Glass last night. I liked it. The end was a bit messy but the rest of it was really solid. Great performances and I liked the premise.

    Talk about a polarizing director! Love M. Night. Everyone loved Sixth Sense and after that . . . Love em or Hate em. I'm all in. The Happening and Last Air Bender are tough to make a case for. The rest. . . I am all in. He is not the writer but his series The Servant has been interesting so far, Peter.

    I haven’t seen most of M. night’s recent work. I saw some of his early stuff but then nothing until Split two years ago - and I went into that spoiler free, although I’d heard vague positive things. Was looking forward to Glass although I’d heard reviews were mixed. Was very pleasantly surprised.

    He’s clearly a good director, and when he keeps things from getting too convoluted or pretentious, he can craft a fine movie. Glass was entertaining, but you could also see the deft hand of an experienced director.

    Yeah, I like it. And yes, the Stranger Things influence is obvious.

    I will say, The Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer would probably work a whole lot better if you saw it in the theater, without knowing what the movie was. It is set up to be one kind of movie in the first 30 seconds, and then gradually revealed to be the Ghostbusters trailer by the end. It’s pretty well done, actually. They are also clearly trying to distance themselves from Ghostbusters 2016 as much as they can, both in premise and in tone.
