  • The New Ghost in the Shell is pretty good, it drifts away from the base material at points but over all its a solid flick.

    • Is it wrong that the new trailer for The Mummy gave me high hopes? Because I want so much for it to be a good movie that my judgment might be impaired, but I honestly liked that trailer

      We finally got pictures of Pluto. No Mi-Go in sight. Those bastards are clever.

      • Saw the new Ghost in the Shell. I liked it a lot!


        PENTEX SUCKS.

          No. I just saw the trailer, the movie looks like it'll be great for what it is. I don't have any particular investment in saying so, though I am a Tom Cruise fan. I wouldn't expect any soul-moving moments that will change your life but in terms of a supernatural action movie? Definitely going to be good.

            Cool, this means I'm not alone on this. My friends strongly disagree with me as they would rather have a new Brendan Fraser's Mummy and are not giving this a chance. I sure will.

              I also liked the new trailer, especially because it makes it seem like more of a straight up horror movie than a generic action-adventure (the use of "Paint it Black" definitely helped). The Brendan Fraser Mummy movies were great for what they were, which is pulpy, witty action movies, and they didn't really pretend to be anything else. This is still ignoring that Imhotep was a charismatic villain with really great presence. Also, the actress they have playing Ahmanet was the best part of Star Trek Beyond, so I have no problem watching just to see more of her being awesome.

              Not sure if I'm sold on the "Universal Monsters Universe" concept, I'll probably pretend Russell Crowe isn't Dr. Henry Jeckyll and is instead a stand-in for the Museum Director in the first Brendan Fraser Mummy movie, but I'll probably watch it just for the atmosphere they seem to have going. It feels very Mummy: The Curse with a Deceived protagonist.

              • I'm a big dork when it comes to Universal Monsters, as they're a relevant part of my childhood. So while I'm not exactly sold with the concept of Marvel-style shared universe, I do hope they're gonna do it well. The mature, educated and jaded part of me is doubtful. The kid part just wants to see more movies about them. So it's a "fingers crossed" situation for me.

                Ahmanet looks great. I liked her actress both in Kingsman and Star Trek and I too will look forward for it to gather some Mummy: The Curse's visuals and atmosphere. You know you're a fan when you start to look at all monsters in terms of CoD splats.

                  It can't be much worse than that Van Helsing movie with Hugh Jackman that recently came out.

                  *EDIT* Recently. I just looked and it came out 13 years ago, back in 2004. Wow. Time flies, right?

                    13?!

                    Excuse me as I have an epiphany about time and getting old.

                    Ahem.

                    No, I guess not. As far as attempts at a shared universe go, that one was not exactly without issues. It had its perks but boy, I sure can't look at it in the same way I did when I was thirteen.
