I agree, Sold0.

Watched it over the weekend, and it's definitely one of the better Predator movies they've made.

Finally went to see Jurassic World : Dominion with my son. Not half as terrible as critics etc have made out, it’s certainly better than the second part of fallen kingdom. But a disappointing lack of any memorable deaths at all and a real waste of some good ideas and characters too. Felt strangely rushed. Always hard to make the idea of ‘dinosaurs now live in the real world’ really work, and chucking in a storyline about engineered locusts seemed a bit unnecessary

We watched "The Grey Man" last night so very far-fetched but well worth it for the special effects.

Mark Rylance is superb in everything he does.

Yeah Grey Man was a good grin... highly entertaining couple of hours... not a Golf fan but loved the Phantom of the Open... Mark Rylance superb in it... what an amazing story that is

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
The Grey Man- Indeed worth a watch, entertaining enough and leaves it open for another one. Has Billy Bob Thornton always looked like he is in his 60's!!

Watched "Elvis" last night really enjoyed it.

The Grey Man is a good hoot, worth a watch for sure.

Thanks Ted, at least I know I'm not missing anything now. Going to try The Grey Man on Netflix tonight after being advised earlier.

Zico,

I love Tom Hanks but I found "The Greyhound" to be very poor.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
When you see a leading actors name also in the credits as 'executive producer', especially if it happens after several seasons of a long-running series, it usually means they have gained a degree of creative control over the character they play (probably not so much over the other characters or general storyline). Mark Harmon in NCIS, Ellen Pompeo in Grey's Anatomy and Claire Danes in Homeland would be good examples.

As Alf's said, it's also a way of paying them more money, particularly when attempting to circumvent a salary structure applying to an ensemble cast.

Manuel 7:10 Sat Jul 30
Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
Alfs - Yea I've noticed that in recent years that the main actor is also a director/producer.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
I would say the folks over at Disney would disagree with you there Alfs.?

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
It's all changing, Manuel, and there has been a shift in power. A and B list actors are no longer just guns for hire. They now Executive Produce so they are in control of the scripts, the cast and director choices, etc.

It also means that they get more money, as well as tax breaks. It's win, win, which is fair enough as it's their pulling power that gets bums on seats.

The Studio system of old is in mid collapse, with the exception of Marvel franchises and the like, as the studios have spent billions on the rights.

It's a bit like Bosman fucking up the football clubs greed, but with film and tv.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
I'm noticing you can miss a lot of films as well if you don't have a particular platform. I quite fancied The Greyhound I think with Tom Hanks, but it's on Apple and as far as I can see you can't get it anywhere else, unless of course you know where to look!!

I think the demise of the Video library also has made a big difference. We had one local to us years ago and the guy was so knowledgeable on each customers likes and dislikes word of mouth got around the village on what the best films were to watch. Shawshank Redemption was a perfect example. I'd never heard of it, and it hadn't performed well in the cinema. John (the shops owner) handed it to me and told me to watch it. I did, loved it, and told people in the pub. Two weeks later the whole pub was raving about it. Obviously that happened the world over and it's now a classic.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
Alfs - Some fair points but there still seems to be a glut out there regardless, most actors would make what 2 films a year, so where are they?

A few reasons, and Covid is still one of them. It stalled a lot of productions, and even now, when they filming is finished, post production often takes another 9-12 months.

Summer is the time for animated kids films, and also a time to dump movies where the distributors have little faith. You'll find quite a few of those on Netflix and Amazon at the moment.

Also, it's becoming more and more common to release the good films in November, so they qualify for the Oscars and remain fresh in the mind of the Academy members who vote for them.

On top of that, the money is now being spent on TV, where $50 million can be spent on a 12 part series, rather that a single film. Again though, those series tend to be released in the autumn/winter when people stay at home.

They sometimes get it wrong, with Sherwood being a good example. The makers were seething that it was released in the summer, yet it was critically acclaimed. The viewing figures didn't reflect that, though it's proving very popular on catch up, due to word of mouth.

I saw Elvis last week and thought it was very well done and didn’t think it seemed that long.
Depends if you like Baz Lurhmann stuff I suppose. The guy playing Elvis was great
