THEY LOCKED THE DOORS OF THE FUCKING THEATER DURING AN AUDIENCE STAMPEDE

I mean, how can anything compare to that?

The Rite Of Spring Riot of 1913?

If John Woo isn't on board or if this movie doesn't have the look and feel of a Woo production, this movie can go fuck itself.

If there are no slow motion scenes of doves in flight or some poor bastard taking a dirt bike to the chest or no climactic gunfight in someplace totally inappropriate like a hospital or a public library, this movie will be garbage.

It'll probably be directed by Paul Fiege and star Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy

Somebody taped that piece for me years ago and I really should listen to it again.

How about the Astor Place Riot of 1849? Don't fuck with the working man's Shakespeare.

That shit is bananas. I guess that would be like the fans of Daniel Day Lewis and Christian Bale throwing down over who the greater actor is.

So it was basically the Draft Riot at the end of Gangs of New York, only it was over two Shakesperean actors instead of the Draft and race? Bizarre.

And I wasn't fully thinking of riots in comparison to what happened in that theater. I mean of course Watts or LA were crazier than that.

Funny since Widows felt like a remake of Set it Off.

Widows and The Kitchen have some elements of Set It Off (Widows has a big one in particular that I won't spoil here if you haven't seen it), but besides Blair Underwood as a love interest and plot device, there are no major male characters in Set It Off really. Therefore, you don't have the "we're taking over for our significant others" gender swap theme. In Widows, the women didn't even really know each other while all the women in Set It Off were best friends (or in a relationship) and co-workers. Besides being like a staple of growing up black in the 90s, I think I liked (the now original) Set It Off much better than the current female empowerment slate of films because the performances were so strong and everything made sense enough that you didn't need a bunch of different characters anyway. It was a pretty timely film. Remaking it twenty five years later just seems like a waste when it's clear the studios have ran out of permutations to make this work anyway. You could argue it's not working in the first place. Both Widows and The Kitchen bombed. Widows had a giant ensemble, but when I saw it, I still felt you could have casted it much better afterwards and trimmed the running time. I thought The Kitchen was okay (Margo Martindale was fucking great and Domhnall Gleeson was good), but that's with extremely low expectations going in. They still had a bunch of characters actors in it who did nothing. The way the film played out, that script felt like it needed a couple more rewrites at least.

When it is ever referred to as Norman Lear’s Princess Bride?

Hey, they just remade another perfect movie named The Addams Family. Maybe they could do this one in CGI and ruin every single memory of everyone that ever watched this one too.

I felt the same way when it was announced that Home Alone will be remade.  Nothing wrong with it,   perfect family/comedy.   I'm sick.

Home Alone is a perfectly fine little family movie that gets by on a decent script and a supremely charismatic child star, overcoming some really pedestrian directing. A remake is a perfectly fine idea, better than doing a fifth sequel.

The Princess Bride is a literally perfect movie and remaking it should be a criminal offense.

It's funny people thought that of Culkin at the time, since he's a charisma black hole as an adult.  Maybe the universe's way of balancing the scales?

Culkin has charisma as an adult. Although to be fair, all the Culkins are fairly dry.

@Ace I’m with you. Culkin still has that superstar charisma. His problem was he never grew into becoming an adult actor(Mostly because he semi-retired from it) like Elijah “Good Son” Wood did.

Speaking of the Princess Bride, I recently read Cary Elwes book about the making of it, and it well worth seeking out. . . .

Another Knives Out trailer

Share this post

Dark Waters

Directed: Todd Haynes

That cast....

Quote

The film is based on Nathaniel Rich’s New York Times Magazine article “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare.” Corporate defense attorney Robert Bilott had been practicing law for eight years when he took on an environmental suit against the chemical company DuPont. The suit would turn into a battle exposing a decades-long history of chemical pollution. 

I should also point out that this was originally supposed to come out next year but they moved it up to get it into Oscar contention

I read a really shining review of Knives Out. The cast on that one is a corker, too.

Wasn't that old John Travolta movie. I think it was called A Civil Action based on the same case?
