re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Bad Times at the El Royale is one of the most frustratingly up-and-down movie experiences I've had in recent years. It had so much good stuff that was constantly bogged down by other boring characters, Drew Goddard being Drew Goddard, and making "smart" and "interesting" choices that were actually not smart at all and not interesting in the slightest.


Do you know anything about witches?

That hack failing some more.

Tonight might be the night for Streets of Fire. Feeling right.

The guy who wrote The Martian, Bubz.

Williem Dafoe as an evil leader of a biker gang in some kind of 50's oriented dystopia. I've had this on the watchlist for a while with good reason. Really hope I dig it.

Also young ridiculously hot Diane Lane. It was one of Walter Hill's best for sure.

Her character name is pretty great.

Hill's work is one that kind of excited me at the prospects as a whole. The Warriors let me down, but Red Heat brought me right back. This should def be a project for this year.

The Martian LOL

I love The Warriors. I love all the Walter Hill films I've seen, which isn't that many, but enough to make me want to see the rest of his work. The Driver is amazing.

The Driver is what I placed next behind Streets of Fire. Sounds great + Isabelle Adjani.

Some of his Westerns are ripe with interest and Johnny Handsome sounds like some type of wild beast, too.

re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

After watching Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, I have to ask: Why hasn't there been another live action Scooby-Doo movie? This was gold

Tom Hardy as Fred Jones would be 10/10, don't @ me

re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII



looks good.

Also, if you're looking for some good Walter Hill movies, well really all are good. I mean lesser seen ones that are worth a watch, try Extreme Prejudice, The Long Riders, and Wild Bill.

From the ashes of a once great man has risen a curse,
a wrong that must be righted.
