I think the plot is wide open for a potential third volume, but I expect it will take a LONG time for it to be made. Labor of love from some talented next-gen director. Though I guess there is a bit of an incentive to do it sooner rather than later, as Harrison Ford is getting up there.

Oh well. I’m satisfied. If a third movie did happen, I would be nervous all over again about the legacy being ruined. A legacy that’s now twice as big.

Hope it gets a Best Picture nod, ticket sales or no ticket sales. Sometimes big movies are just, like, actually really fucking good. Like The Godfather. Or Gladiator. Or (yea-huh!) The Dark Knight. This is one of those times, and it it would be folly not to give this film its asterisk in history by nominating it for BP.

well a movie that’s losing money is not going to get a next installment so where do you go from here—comics?

but another installment is not necessarily a good thing. think of how fucking horrible were the sequels to the matrix.

best to leave it on a mysterious ending. revolution and all that— very easy to do cheesy (yeah, im thinking of the OWS installment of batman, indeed.)

Lots of great films get overlooked. The Best Picture Oscar usually tells us more about what the industry's thinking about at any given time than the film it's awarded to. Right now, the industry's having to deal with the Harvey Weintein stuff and given how a few critics have complained (rightly or wrongly) that BR objectifies women, that may ultimately go against it. Equally if a movie comes out that reflects Hollywood's antipathy to Trump, that might get the nod.

Instead of the announcer saying "the award for best picture goes to ...", they should say "the award for picture that makes the industry feel best about itself goes to ..."

you must have been asleep during the scene when they literally occupy the stock market. i don’t blame you though

batman is not about the “real” OWS of course— batman alluded to it in its time but it’s precisely the opposite— batman is against the organized masses.

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...cal-right-turn
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/sandi...b_1695599.html

i caled it the ows installment because i don’t remember what’s called what.

but anyway i was talking about cheesy revolutions. remember? so yeah i dont want a hollywoo-style replicant messiah ruining blade runner as it threatens to do. or raves at the center of the earth as the machines dig down. or a bunch of cops charging frontally at tanks (lol). ugh!

i’d much rather enjoy the intriguing suggestion of a replicant revolution than a corny depiction of one.

Watched this again last night. It was someone else's choice as he'd never seen it before and I wasn't relishing the idea of watching this again. Honestly, both Truffaut and the film are massively overrated. To mind boggling levels at that

No, I totally remember that. It just didn’t make me think of OWS at all. I don’t think there was any intention to make it “about” OWS like, say, “Aliens” is “about” Vietnam. The similarities between OWS and the League of Shadows’ activity in The Dark Knight Rises are.... uhh... both have to do with the stock market, briefly. These scenes in TDKR are about terrorism that wears an “everyman justice” mask. But it’s a ruse, and it’s just terrorism. Authoritarianism. The fact that OWS was a gaining momentum at the time may have influenced the imagery, and the tone, but it’s hardly the “OWS Batman” movie. You’re talking about 4 minutes of a 3-hour movie.

When are you gonna learn to stop worrying and love the Nolan?

Totally agree with you there.

I felt that wat about the first BR. I was nervous as hell when I learned Deckard’s identity question was going to be definitively answered. I’d much rather have a suggestion, or vague intimation, of an existential crisis than be beaten over the head with one.

The question, when it comes to stuff like this, is always more interesting than the answer. To take it back to Batman (because BAAAAHAHAH!), Heath Ledger’s Joker is infinitely more interesting than Jack Nicholson’s or anyone else’s, because the guy’s a ghost, and you imagination is the limit when it comes to his “origin story.” Guy with nothing in his pockets but knives and lint, who doesn’t even exist officially, is a MUCH more interesting and more frightening threat than a guy who falls into a vat of acid and turns into a clown for some reason blah.

BR2049 managed to not fuck up the answering of the Deckard question, thank god. Shit was still interesting and compelling. But it succeeded against all odds, and chances are a third film would not be as successful at *tastefully* depicting a robot overthrow (ever seen Terminator: Genesis? Bleh).

Now, after that the Hellraiser movies entered into a never-ending war to put-shitty each other. I can’t even begin to tell you how much Hellraiser III fucked me up. It was SOO BAD. With grunge music! And then Hellraiser IV took us into deep space AND the 1700s for a shit salad that was EVEN WORSE.


But those first two movies will live in forever. Good fucking shit.

I absolutely ADORE Hellbound: Hellraiser II. It's just so fucking weird I love it (Phantasm is the only other movie I can think of that is as insane as this, and I love it too). I gave it 5 stars out of 5
I think Hellraiser 3 was okay but I honestly haven't watched any of the movies beyond that. Maybe I should do that some day.

NO! Don’t! No! Do not watch any Hellraiser movies after Hellbound!

Seriously man, your enjoyment of the franchise is at stake here. I know you’ve seen and somehow like??? Hellraiser III, (must have seen it a few decades ago... maybe in early high school?) but VENTURE NO FURTHER!!!

The ideal play is to watch Hellraiser and Hellbound and then STOP RIGHT FUCKING THERE to preserve your appreciation for the awesome weirdness of those two great movies.

Promise me... PROMISE me you will not watch another single solitary frame of any post-1990 Hellraiser film. It’s for your own good! I envy the fuck out of you.

I've been watching a horror movie a day for October. This past week I watched He Never Died. I thought that was pretty good. The Host which I've been putting off seeing. I do like Bong Joon Ho's movies. The Host was great. Then I watched Sun Choke, fantastic thriller.

i meant to ask this a long time ago but—really, overrated? or more like— has it been absorbed so much into the language of film and the culture it’s hard to see it anymore for what it was?

this movie was on TV last week, actually only saw the last half of it but I liked it a lot. Yes it's outdated (it's from 1971), but amazingly enough, the animations seemed to be less so than the actual actors. And it stars Angela Lansbury, which was the reason that I didn't watch it completely. But she turned out quite alright as well.
