Dumbest things people have told you about movies

  1. I suppose if you saw the Foreign version of the film it might make sense except that the pers0n I referred to only saw the English versi0n of the film. So there’s that.

    On some file formats today, that's exactly what would happen. Back in those days, not a lot of people got the idea of "scaling," which is a big factor between SD, HD, 2K, and 4K these days.

    Tell that guy to STFU. He's just p!ssed-off that WB is dumping it on HBOMax and not exclusively in theaters. Reviews are mixed so far. I suspect I'm gonna lean in this direction:

    Thing is, I think Villeneuve is a pretty great director, and I loved Blade Runner 2049. But all this blame-Marvel-movies-for-the-death-of-cinema nonsense is starting to seem like bandwagoning.

    That said, I can’t muster up much excitement for another adaptation of Dune.

    It baffles me how Denis Villeneuve went from the geeky guy from Quebec who made the little Francophone movie about a girl having degrading sex while being taunted existentially by a talking fish -- to being a Hollywood big-shot holding forth about the future of popular cinema.

    He's like James Gunn, if James Gunn completely forgot where he came from.

    I'm gonna watch it -- at home, on a calibrated display -- but I reserve the right to grind my teeth and complain the entire time. Not a huge fan of the 1980s film, but I did read the book and know the story.
