Thumbs down Rogue One = Strike Two

"STRIKE TWO" might have been a financial Succe$$ but...as lead-in to perhaps the most famous film in the entire world it's a dismal failure. A slick production of A HIGHLY STACKED PILE OF CRAP....

Hello? Look up the word "literal" in the dictionary, squire. Cinema wasn't "literally born in the 1930s". For sure, that decade marked the beginning of its Golden Age but I'm reacting solely to your...

Yes, but you also said that its “birth” was in the 1930s. “Invented” = Born. Jeeze Louise, quit with the dodgeball game.

Erm, don't you mean the 2nd decade? We're talking about the 1910s,...

Film history is a passion of mine so there’s no need for the lesson. ;)

Anyway, you’re entirely missing the point. You say that the 1930s were the “birth of cinema” when it was actually 1895 with...

It's worth pointing out that colour in "Raiders" was tampered for the Blu-ray (and the IMAX version). Many sequences have a yellowish-orangish hue or the contrast has been fiddled with. It doesn't...
