That's a fair point. Though on average Star Wars movies are not as successful the further into Disney's ownership we go. Is that because of burn out, poor movies, poor timing, other reasons? ...

My wife said the same thing walking out of TLJ. We'll probably end up seeing it, as I do want to know how it ends, but not opening night like we did with TFA, RO, and TLJ. We haven't seen Solo and...

But movies aren't made (just) for reviewers. They're generally made for the public. A great critically successful movie can still be a flop and somehow things like Skyscraper and The Meg keep...

Just watched this on DVD. Enjoyed it as a popcorn action flick but it borrowed heavily from Last Crusade.

No, you think on a paranoid level of what you believe Disney thinks, despite evidence to the contrary. Its more than a bit exhausting to read.

Are we just going to ignore that there is a very vocal contingent of TLJ haters who are sexist and racist? Look what happened to Kelly Marie Tran.

I'm not saying that if you hate TLJ you're a...

Could easily be October as well. Though in the 50's it probably hadn't spread into October as much as it has now.

Good point, I forgot Wu got the samples out.


Yeah, I'll bite on a story like that. As long as it has something like a solid foundation its built off of that could be fun.

Of course there are scientists who feel we are only 5-10 years away from reverse engineering dinosaurs so while JP was ~30 years ahead of its time its not that outlandish. And far too many SF...

It feels like they're going for a setup where humans and dinos now have to coexist. A true "Jurassic World". Which, fine, I find that concept really interesting, but this movie doesn't logically...
