re: Is AppleTV's original content underrated? - Jay Are
I know you're only talking TV, but they've also recently put out three worthwhile, if not great, movies in Beastie Boys Story, Greyhound and Boys State. And they'll be releasing the latest Tomm Moore animated feature, Wolfwalkers, and Sofia Coppola's new movie, On the Rocks, later this year. ...

re: Resumes for biggest "movie star" in Hollywood history - Jay Are
[quote]Humphrey Bogart needs to be in this list as well.[/quote] Absolutely. Another that most people wouldn't think about, but who dominated American movie and box office for decades, was Spencer Tracy. Fewer of his films have stayed in the collective culture consciousness than actors like W...

re: The Masked Singer Season 4...... - Jay Are
[quote]Just like last year, the first out is someone everyone has heard of so they can make people think, "It could be big stars in the masks!"[/quote] So, we're saying Busta Rhymes, who's had two almost-hits in the past 20 years, and is now best known by the demographic that watches this show as...

re: 'Grown-ish' Star Yara Shahidi To Play Tinkerbell In Disney’s Live-Action ‘Peter Pan’ Pic - Jay Are
[quote]But it’s tough to not be skeptical when priority number one is the skin color of the cast and not characters, dialogue, and story.[/quote] Priority number one wasn't hiring an in-house actress popular enough to warrant her own successful, multi-season spin-off show of a popular sitcom? Fee...

He was tcm's second ever host, and he was hired in 2003. What a rapid 17 year descent that hasn't existed. ...

re: Anyone else have have issues watching a movie after reading the book? - Jay Are
[quote]The book was so much better than the movie in so many ways. In the end I think it was a mistake to let Spielberg direct it bc he cut out most references to himself and his work. Maybe I should have waited to read the book after the movie.[/quote] Both book and movie are obsessed with playi...

re: Anyone else have have issues watching a movie after reading the book? - Jay Are
[quote]Anytime I read a book and a movie is later made about it, I can't enjoy the movie.[/quote] I enjoy comparing. I tend to like adaptations that stray from their source materials so that if I have read and enjoyed the book, the movie can stand on its own. That of course doesn't account for mo...

[quote]I'm guessing that Sorkin will try to make these a-holes look like Patriotic Americans.[/quote] I'm guessing you think un-American wars, beating peaceful protesters, and rigged courtrooms are all quality examples of patriotism in america? There are books and documentaries on this event a...

re: Mel Gibson's next film - "The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection" - Jay Are
[quote]Also, based on Hacksaw Ridge, I'd be very worried that this will suck. Explain your reasoning.[/quote] Every actor delivering dialogue like they're all in totally different movies. Ugly as hell effects, as covered earlier. A story that leans on hokiness to a debilitating degree, inclu...

re: ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ Canceled - Jay Are
Is the show Woke about marxism? Does everyone's woke Oscar winner Moonlight involve marxism? Does the board punching bag Captain Marvel involve marxism? Are the 60s films of Jean-Luc Godard woke because of his marxism, regardless of what we'd consider a pretty sexist world-view evident in several of...

re: Mel Gibson's next film - "The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection" - Jay Are
[quote]Has Gibson ever really done CGI heavy?[/quote] Based on how much cgi he used in Hacksaw Ridge, I'd be very worried that any supernatural setting that he films will be cgi-heavy. Also, based on Hacksaw Ridge, I'd be very worried that this will suck. ...

re: Is Schitt's Creek really that good? - Jay Are
[quote]Beware of "comedies" loved by critics. They usually aren't funny.[/quote] And Schitt's Creek was totally ignored by critics for its first 3 seasons. It survived on a small, devoted fanbase absolutely loving it, along with Netflix rewatches that suggested a huge word of mouth spread. It...
