- I remember Justice League and Suicide Squad on how bad those movies were.
- I remember BvS on how good looking and sounding the movie was.
- Remember Wonder Women and Shazam how much fun they were.
- Saw BoP last week, barely remember anything that happened in it. No a terrible movie at all, also not a great movie, nothing in this movie stood out...including the fight scenes, which seemed like from a low budget tv show. After watching this movie I wantto see a movie with the two villains in the lead.

Its a move made to be forgotten.

Reviews disagree. It's as good as Wonder Woman and Shazam and could have done way better had the rating and marketing been fixed.

It's as good as Wonder Woman and Shazam? BOP has 79% while Shazam is 90% and Wonder Woman is 93%. I mean BoP is considered good and the 3rd best rated DCEU movie so there's that. I agree with the rating and marketing!

We gotta look at the wide spectrum of good DC movies. In other words, we gotta be grateful if it's not below 60.

Sony could have held on to its hot streak if they had held on to the sonic movie

I thought Portrait of a Lady on Fire expanded this weekend? Nobody is showing it around me.

RE: Onward, it is one of the weakest of Pixar’s “What if X were just like normal people” premises.

You can really see the Flintstones joke template in this one

Probably late to the party, but recently watched Bad Boys For Life. I was not expecting it to be as deep and as raw as it was, lots of profound introspection and reminder of how fragile life is. Stunned by how it captured the old BB feel and took it to places I didn't think it could go. Amazing movie, seriously, only other movie that left me as satisfied leaving the cinema recently was Knives Out.

At least the Good Dinosaur had a great landscape to work with. Onward has even less going for it.

Question, how well did Venom do in China?

Partially asking because if this goes as long as people are suggesting, I'm curious the impact on Morbius and Venom 2.

Alright boys, going to check out Sonic,

The world will be nuts if it turns out to be funnier than birds of Prey

Just saw the Gentlemen. Thought it was a return to form of sorts for Ritchie, at long last.
Not sure what I'm seeing this weekend.

I need Knuckles in Sonic 2.
It's coming out on Switch in a week!

I know what you mean lol.

Tails is a shoe-in for a Sonic sequel but I do hope Knuckles appears as well. I was never into comics as a kid, so this will absolutely be my "all the heroes together on the big screen" moment:





You know, basically the same thing.

Ah ok. Everyone was saying no one is making it to a billion and I thought that meant people were thinking theaters would be out of commission for longer.
Is not just that theaters will be closed for (possibly) months. When they re-open, a crap ton of movies will have to be rescheduled, and the chinese government for sure will give priority to homegrown movies, so a bunch of Hollywood imports could get lost in the shuffle or have drastically shortened runs.

If you told me this time last year that Sonic would outdo a DC Comics movie, I would have called you insane.

I can't believe this happening, and I welcome the introduction of the Sega Cinematic Universe, and will be there day one for a Crazy Taxi movie.

I think Universal will suffer the most from the loss of China. They seem to rely on it more than the other big studios.

Gonna be interesting to see how this year goes when they don't have their usual fallback of "if it tanks domestically, maybe it'll do well in China."

3M is pretty good but I was hoping for more than that to get us on the path to beat Pikachu

We'll need exceptional legs

Disney was probably banking heavily on China for Mulan too. Really interested in how that movie will perform.
