Discussion Finding Nemo was released on this day (May 30) in 2003, 20 years ago.
Arguably the greatest Pixar movie ever made turns 20 years old today. I re-watched recently and it's just as entertaining as it was upon first watch. Magnificent voice work and breathtaking visuals are the highlights for me. A perfect example of how a family film can appeal to the masses. Can't believe it's been 20 years. Cheers to a true classic film!

Discussion Are there any franchises that get better with every instalment?
I was just thinking about how every subsequent Jurassic Park movie has been worse than the one before with stunning consistency. Ranking them on a line graph would (in my opinion) be an almost stright diagonal line downwards. Are there any movies that have gotten steadily better with every instalment? An argument could be made for Evil Dead or even John Wick, but I don’t think they quite apply personally. Evil Dead movies (to me) are too different to compare, and I think John Wick has gone up and down a little. Thoughts?

Discussion White Men Can't Jump (2023) .... WTF.
I loved the original growing up. It's one of those movies where I watch it every time it's on or if i randomly come across it on streaming.
The thing about it is the plot is crap. The chemistry between Woody, Snipes, and Perez is what MAKES the movie.
I knew 2023 would be crap, but i just couldnt help myself. HOLY FUCK. I don't know that the fuck they were thinking.
The white dude was actually a fuckin nerd/bitch, not just pretending to be one. Imagine Woody complaining about a vegan menu in the OG or using "homophobic chicken sandwiches" as an insult.
Credit to the white dude tho, he at least TRIED to act like Woody. The black guy and the perez character had the personality of a paper bag.
It's basically the same movie, just done worse in every single conceivable way.
This kinda movie also doesnt work in 2023 where everyone can be racist af to the white guy but he can NEVER give it back.
Edit: Also, instead of the jimi argument In this one the white dude asks the black dude if he listens to any white music. The black dude says he "fucks around with ed sheeran". The white dude hugs him and says "I'm in love with the shape of you."
Then the black dude invites the white guy to his kids birthday party and the guy says "That sounds FIRE! I fuck around with kids"
That's an actual exchange in this pos.

Review I was pleasantly surprised how these two characters were portrayed in Air Force One.
When it's unclear if the President is held hostage or even alive, the Vice-President (Close) and Secretary of Defense (Stockwell) disagree about who is in charge during a terrorist attack. Some movies might've had a political intrigue B-plot of some underling using the chaos to try to gain power.
However, they're not portrayed as enemies or undermining the other or trying to seize power for themselves; they are genuinely concerned about who has the authority to act during the crisis and simply want to do the right thing. So they call in an expert to interpret the Constitution to find out who is supposed to be making the decisions. The SoD even tries to give emergency power to the VP when it looks like the terrorists might win. It feels like how two professionals who work together in a bureaucracy should behave instead of plotting from the shadows.

Question I watched ‘Air’ in a movie theatre and it had motion smoothing / frame interpolation applied. Is this a thing now?
This was in a Pathé in Amsterdam. Please tell me this was a one-time thing and entirely the theatre’s fault, and not something I can expect to see more often now. But even then, how does this happen? Do digital theatre projectors have frame interpolation, if so, why? Or is this an Amazon thing? I feel like an old man yelling at clouds, but jeez.

Discussion Coldest/chilling death scenes in film
Today I decided to rewatch Michael Clayton. I haven't seen the movie in probably 5-10 years but know that I really enjoyed it originally both in theater and on rewatches. Upon this rewatch, certain things have jumped out at me such as various The Wire actor appearances and the outstanding performances and engaging story all around.
However, one element that always catches me off guard, is the death scene of a certain character. It's so incredibly well done; so calculated, methodical, and cold. There's no dramatic send off, it just happens at full throttle dragging you the entire way whether you want to follow or not. In the most subtle of ways, it just completely shocks you and leaves you in a state of wtf. There's no gore, no dramatic or clever method of death... just a cold calculated kill. It's a stunning scene.
What other films can you think of with similar scenes/effects?

Discussion Actors/Actresses you hate as one type of character but love as another
For example, I can't stand Hugh Grant as a dopey love interest, like in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually, and Notting Hill. But I love him as a smarmy villain, like in The Gentlemen and, most recently, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. I'm curious to hear if others have similar preferences or idiosyncrasies?

Discussion Watched The Sandlot tonight with family to celebrate the beginning of Summer.
It is such an amazing movie that perfectly captures the freedom of both childhood and baseball especially when one takes into consideration that the film is set during the innocence of the early 1960s. I especially loved how the dialogue from all of the kids felt natural and older Scotty narrating it ala Wonder Years style was the cherry on the cake.
As Roger Ebert wrote in his review, “If you have ever been lucky enough to see "A Christmas Story," you will understand what I mean when I say "The Sandlot" is a summertime version of the same vision.”

Discussion What acting performance oozes charisma?
I posted this on another sub, but I wanna see what you guys think. What is some of the most charismatic acting you’ve ever seen?
For me, Brad Pitt in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was a charisma masterclass. I was so charmed by his character even though I’m not sure if I was supposed to be. He stole every scene he was in.
