I was hoping he was playing a volleyball. Or a dude always hidden behind a fence.

I know some people despise or only tolerate Woody (like my dad, who unbelievably sat through all of the first season of True Detective), but I like him and Wilson looks like it's gonna be fun. And Youth In Oregon is gonna make me cry for no reason

Kenya Barris is going to create, produce, and possibly direct a remake of White Men Can't Jump.  Normally I'd be all WHY~???, but this season of black-ish was really strong and, more importantly, funny so this may actually be a good thing.

I'm fine with this, so long as he understands that White Men Can't Jump is not about basketball.  

Also, I still want a movie of Wesley Snipes insulting people and then dunking on them for 2 hours.

Man, I dunno about this.  That movie is pretty much perfect as-is.

I think Woody is great.  Been a fan of his for a long, long time.

The discerning and multi layered humor of black-ish makes me think that Barris is smart enough to "get it" and the remake is in good hands.

My issue is the same as Tabe's aka does this movie really need to be remade?

In these days of divisive racial identity politics, I daresay I can think of a better candidate for a remake given the ending.

I Am Michael

Starring James Franco, Zachary Quinto, and Emma Roberts 

It's the true story of a gay rights advocate and his alleged conversion to heterosexuality.

The part left out of all that White Men Can't Jump sequel talk is that Blake Griffin is also helping produce it

Which pretty much is gonna mean - Blake Griffin is gonna star in it

Translation (James Franco):

I apologize for starring in Why Him?  Here I am starring in something that is fucking awesome.

Sweet sweet Netfllix.  I accept your apology for not having The Man In The High Castle in your line up.

Now if only Marvel Studios would move their asses and get Season One of The Punisher and Iron Fist online..

I can't find the post because JT posted about Split in the wrong thread but in regards to the spoiler that was posted (about the "twist" and ending)

I just heard a movie reviewer on a radio interview basically confirm that it is true (they said it in non-spoiler terms but since I read the spoiler I put two and two together)

Part of that movie's success is its willingness to tread full-on into racial stereotypes and mock them constantly - while simultaneously having some of them be true.  I just don't know if that kind of humor will play in 2017.  And I don't think the movie works nearly as well without it.

In the what will surely be the second most depressing piece of news to come out this week, Sony has announced Sir Patrick Stewart will play the role of Poop in The Emoji Movie.

Please dear God let the paycheck at least be fucking huge

Stewart seems to have a good sense of humor so my guess is that the paycheck was probably good (especially since he can probably record all his stuff in one day) and he probably finds the idea of being talking poop to be funny enough to go with it. It will likely be one of if not the worst thing in his career, cause how can it not be bad, but talking poop will sound like Sir PAtrick Stewart and he probably finds that hilarious.

So it is not a Home Inprovement spin off?
