    The productions of TV shows are so much better too now. When I was growing up, there was a clear difference between shows and movies. These days though, it's pretty much the same.
    I think a big appeal is also the length of episodes. It's just 45min..you watch one, then go do a few things, put the next one on..etc.

    Fandor (when it relaunches), Mubi and the Sundance submissions are worth it if you want non-super hero, heavy CGI movies.

    Peter Jackson to a little novella about Bilbo Baggins and turned it into 3, 3 hour long movies. That must be the record. :)

    I watched Mortal Kombat. The first half of the movie was stronger than the second half, and at the end of it I'm not sure if it's even better than the 1995 film.

    That’s ok. I have a lot of friends who absolutely hated it. I like those quirky type of dramadies.

    Haven’t caught it yet. I actually didn’t mind the first film, though the second one was terrible.

    I don't know anything at all about mortal kombat before I watched it last night.

    First hour was great, I was in the story and following but after that it really felt rushed, I felt like that power rangers movie, great setup but ...

    Technically, it's not true. He added stuff from the other books.. but he added so much nonsense too.

    Also they released longer versions of those movies :laugh:

    I bought them but I only watched the first one. The others are still sealed in their packaging ._.

    Very entertaining movie. Hope the next two come somewhere close to the original.

    Nomadland is painfully slow. Couldn't finish; maybe one day. I like Frances too.

    Are you saying that this is an Idiocracy prelude? To some extent, I don't think so. While it is a mindless movie, the box office has terrible options to watch. Some internet critics were also saying that this movie having some success was a big FU to the movie industry who is always trying to include everyone or bring some SJW in.

    Like I was watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix last weekend. You have all the ethnicities and even a gay main character. Batwoman was pushing the LGBT theme too. And so on. While Shadow was kinda well done, I believe some people are getting fed up by that BS. (And also cancel culture)

    Yeah, sorry you're right. I just found it a sign of the times to see a monster smash movie at #1 at the BO

    Just watched it myself and pretty much have the same opinion; first half was entertaining but the second half was all about setting things up for a sequel, imo...

    I was lucky enough to catch him at The Big Lebowski live reading at Just For Laughs like 6 years ago. Fassbender, TJ Miller and a bunch of other people were there reading different parts, one of the best live show experiences of my life.
