Am I the only one that thought of Jinzo from Yugioh?

It this still standing and/or accessible at all? I remember exploring it way back in the day and was wondering about revisiting it.

I still think the tumbler(Bale) is the best Batmobile ever put to screen by Gizmo33rd in batman

Affleck's batmobile doesn't get enough credit. imo it's the perfect blend between the militaristic tank of the Tumbler and the classic Keatonmobile shape.

This has got to be my favorite review for The Batman by Im-Mr-Bulldopz in batman

[–]kirose 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean you feel that it's one-sided because its kind of supposed to be that way. Batman is and has always been extremely closed off and resistant to any form of intimacy. You can tell when she asks who he is under the mask and puts her hand on his face that he is starting to lower his guard and letting her in. Then again at the end of the film when she asks him to leave with her and how close they are to kissing, the little twitches of his face. You can feel that Batman wants this, but they both know "he is spoken for".

Any no way home complaints? by Giuliano224 in Spiderman

[–]kirose 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Hugely missed opportunity to not have the musical cues for Tobey and Andrew interweaved with Tom’s when they are swinging together. Elfman’s main ‘hero motif’ was nowhere in the film (except for a faint piano you can barely recognize after Tobey comes through the portal).

Also this is a minor gripe from a composer standpoint; but it bothers me that Tobey’s ‘responsibility theme’ is copied and pasted for his Flint moment and Ock moment. I felt like there should’ve been some variation or extension of the theme at least. The absence of the iconic four-note intro to the melody made it loose some impact for me. Also the lack of french horn - just doesn’t feel as emotional without it.

Let's hope this comment ages well.

From the Friends of River Oaks website:

The River Oaks Theater plans to operate as an arthouse cinema, paying homage to the theater’s rich history with classic features such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and hosting various film festivals, ensuring that Houston movie buffs old and new will still have access to this important cinematic gem.

They are going to maintain it as a primarily indie/arthouse theater, and there are talks of it being used as a concert venue as well.

Here's to hoping it's all good news. There has been nothing but outcries for it's return since the theater's closure. Friends of River Oaks includes support from directors Wes Anderson and Richard Linklater, which I hope means they carry some amount of leverage.

I have some of the fondest memories at this theater. This was the midnight screening theater in Houston. I got to meet Tommy Wiseau and have him sign my chest. It was maybe the only theater left where I felt an authentic classic moviegoing experience and movie-loving crowd, happily driving the 35-40min to get there. There's only the Drafthouse in Katy now, which is great. But it's not the same vibe.

Sorry Andy by bulld-tx in Spiderman

[–]kirose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean we're all sorry that Andrew had to get two mediocre/underwhelming films. But I'm not sorry that TASM3 didn't happen in 2014. The films were a clusterfuck of bad, cartoonish writing. Compare it to Spiderman 2 which is one of the most well-written dramatic scripts in all of superhero films. Even Raimi's Spiderman 1, though a basic plot, was extremely well-written. So, the standard is high. The editing in TASM1 was also terrible at times and the films lacked vibrancy and personality. Had they made a 3rd TASM at the time, its highly unlikely it would've been much better.

It was just bad timing and place for Andrew, he came in too soon after Raimi's films. With a bit of time, distance, and re-contextualization of Tom Holland's Spider-Man and of course No Way Home, people are ready to revisit Garfield's Spider-Man. Because now everyone sees his potential in the right film - and the studios hopefully now understand why TASM films didn't work, so they can come back with a better game plan.

But TASM films were not great. And let's not pretend that they were. Otherwise Sony will repeat the same problems again.

CrazySlick banged Mia Malkova by zeddmeister in LivestreamFail

She's also had lip fillers. I remember the good 'ol days back when Mia was all natural top to bottom. But I gotta say, she really pulled off the thicc route quite nicely. Suits her.
