Other Statistics:

I have decided to make a list of the top 10 greatest players to ever play the game. Here is my rankings.
  1. Felix 'Man in Black' Dabu (One of two two-time winners, revolutionized the jury management strategy, made it to finale episode 4 of 5 times he played, won the first ever 24-person game of Swoldow's Survivor)
  2. Fawn Kim (First person to ever win twice, proven to be just as effective on the top and bottom of a tribe, has probably the best social game this series has seen)
  3. Astrid Valencia (First person to correctly play 2 idols, only person to make final tribal council three of five times she played, never went out pre-merge)
  4. Taylor Ross (One of the best social games to date, weaponizes majority alliances, makes top five 4 of 5 times she played)
  5. Shawn 'The Syncopation' Voldoski (Winner of the first all-star season, dominant strategically and physically, always finds a way to be in control, makes top five 3 of 4 times he played, one of two IOTI mentors)
  6. Bonnie Denson (Most immunities won in a single season, fewest tribals eligible for in single season, one of two IOTI mentors)
  7. Shaun Garvey (Best strategist this series has seen, used double idols to scare players into voting for others, last Yara standing)
  8. Ethan Colwell (Only 2-time player to never be eliminated, first person to ever be winner and runner-up in consecutive seasons)
  9. Kelsey Harris (Most iconic alliance to date, only player to go home by default)
  10. Jeff 'J-Peb' Pebbles (Most times played, the oldest challenge beast ever, longest span of seasons between his debut and win)
Thank you all for your time! If you have anything you would like to reflect on about this series, do so in the comments. If you have a favorite moment, or even a different ranking of players than I have, feel free to do so below.

2020.02.28 19:58 phelpsboltusa87 phelpsboltusa87 #11 21 Bridges (2019)

I hope this can help others see a movie they have been on the fence about, or have maybe never heard of, thus helping to open eyes to new scenes, or warn off of movies that may be a let-down.
All films included are first watch-through opinions.
Date Started: 1/1/20
Date Watched: 2/7/20
21 Bridges (2019)
Rotten Tomatoes: 51%/91%
Starring Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller
Runtime: 109 mins
My Rating: B to B+
More than Black Panther.
Chadwick Boseman has solidified himself as a talented actor outside of the MCU, embodying Jackie Robinson and Thurgood Marshall in "42" and "Marshall" respectively. Even with the end of the MCU, he can inevitably shine outside of playing Black Panther.
"21 Bridges" asserts evidence of this, as Boseman envelopes himself in the role of an honest detective on the streets of NYC, a role that fits him well and carries a great deal of weight to the viewer (through genuine emotion and stage presence).
Cops have been murdered, and it is the task of the lead detective to bring down the city upon the copkillers, and find out why his compatriots were gunned down.
This film felt different than the ordinary police procedural, and it didn't rely on graphic or over-the-top violence to deliver its message. Instead, great use of tension through an intelligent score, and spectacular cinematography made 21B more engaging and entertaining.
Cinematography was done by Paul Cameron, known for his work on "The Commuter", "Collateral", "Man on Fire", and "Man on a Ledge".
The score was performed by Henry Jackman, who also worked on the score for "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Captain America: Civil War".
I would recommend this to anyone who likes cop/detective movies, or action/drama mix movies.

2020.02.07 15:52 LukeWilsonStupidNose ‘Do you want to do a superhero movie?’ - answers from directors, writers, actors and actresses (2020 update)

I did one of these a couple years ago and people seemed to like it, but I figured it could use an update.
Take these with a grain of salt, of course, this is more for fun than anything. It’s a pretty long post so I’d probably recommend just skimming through for any names you’re interested in.
Pedro Almodóvar
It’s too big for me! I like to see what I’m doing, to direct movies the same day. You have to wait too long to see the results. I like being able to impose my opinion as a director. I’ve made 21 movies. I’m used to doing it the way I like, not fitting with the Hollywood system. (Vulture, 2019)
Darren Aronofsky
You never know. I mean, Superman would always be interesting. But they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time. I think with those films you have to be careful because they are about communicating with as big an audience as you possibly can. Audiences who go to see those films expect a certain type of movie. (CinePop, 2017)
Gemma Arterton
I’m not really into superheroes and stuff like that. But you never know. (HeyUGuys, 2015)
Olivier Assayas
I mean, I enjoy it as a viewer. I don’t think I would touch it as a filmmaker, but I can certainly understand the fun one has with that material, not to mention the admiration I’ve always had for the writers and artists of the comic books. Once in a while, I still do read X-Men comics. I’m just fascinated by the complexity of the narratives and the ambition of the storytelling, which is way beyond whatever they’re doing in the movies. (AV Club, 2015)
Ari Aster
I’ve received some really enticing and cool offers, and I certainly want to hear what the offers are, but I am self-generating. I have so many films I want to make that I’ve written that are so vivid in my head.... Never say never, I definitely want to look at everything that comes my way, but it’ll take a lot to pull me away from these projects that are sort of on the tip of my tongue and that I’m ready to make. (Happy Sad Confused, 2019)
Michael Bay
I wouldn’t want to, it’s not my thing, it’s just not my gig. (Collider, 2016)
Orlando Bloom
I do read [the Marvel comics] a little bit. Who’s the British one? Captain Britain! There you go. Terrible costume, though. (BBC Radio 2, 2018)
Emily Blunt
Not particularly. (Variety, 2018)
Bong Joon-ho
I don’t think Marvel would ever want a director like me. I don’t expect any offers from them anytime soon. Of their movies, I did enjoy the films by James Gunn and James Mangold’s Logan, and I think there are great directors who can handle great projects like that. (Variety, 2020)
John Boyega
I sat down with Marvel years ago, but that’s not the direction I want to go at all. (ComicBook, 2019)
Danny Boyle
I wouldn’t be very good at it. I saw the Spider-Man movie, the animation, and I thought it was wonderful, but out of my league. Normally when you see a movie like that, you think, “I could maybe do that.” I didn’t think “Maybe” with this. It had a sensibility that felt truthful to its origins. Whoever made this, it is part of their bloodstream. You’ve got to recognise that you have no idea how to get there. I don’t think you should attempt one unless it’s in your bloodstream... Comics really aren’t in my bloodstream. (Empire, 2019)
Alison Brie
I would love to. I think especially after working on GLOW, where we all felt like we were superheroes, in a way it has satisfied my desire to do something like that. But in some ways it’s only whet my appetite. (Business Insider, 2017)
James Cameron
I’m not the slightest bit interested in laboring in someone else’s house. (Daily Beast, 2017)
Timothée Chalamet
I want to work with good storytellers and good directors on projects that are fresh, and on roles that feel challenging. Like Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, or Christian Bale in that film, or Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. If it was something of that caliber, then that’s awesome. (Variety, 2018)
Toni Collette
It’d be super-fun to be a superhero. I’m not averse to any particular budget. I’m just averse to a shitty story. (Metro, 2015)
Olivia Colman
I’ve always wanted to play a Marvel baddie. I’m not sure I fit the mould, though. Like a powerful, extraordinary woman. Somebody with superpowers would be really fun, but I’m not sure how many middle-aged women they have in Marvel. (Vulture, 2016)
Sofia Coppola
I love making small low-budget films where I am really allowed to do it the way I want, and I think when you have those huge franchises there are a lot of cooks in the kitchen and meetings in conference rooms. But I’d never say never. (The Independent, 2017)
Bryan Cranston
I don’t want to do a character that has been done several times before. I don’t want to be compared, like, “Well, his Commissioner Gordon was yada yada yada.” I don’t want to do that. I want to take something that hasn’t been done. (ScreenGreek, 2018)
Tom Cruise
I’ll never say no if I find something that’s interesting, and I think an audience would like to see it, and they’re going to be entertained by it, and I feel like I can contribute something. (MTV, 2018)
Guillermo del Toro
Well, I co-wrote a whole screenplay on Justice League Dark for Warner Bros., so that’s your answer. I love Deadman, I love Demon, I love Swamp Thing, Zatanna. That’s a universe, is one thing. I’m very attracted to that side of the DC universe. But I’m not a superhero guy. For me to like a superhero, the superhero needs to be a monster. (ComicBook, 2019)
Leonardo DiCaprio
You never know. They’re getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven’t yet. But no, I don’t rule out anything. (ShortList, 2015)
Zac Efron
I would do it in a second. I’m just waiting for the right opportunity. (Elle, 2017)
Taron Egerton
I love Marvel and I love the movies and I’d love the excuse to get in shape. (Variety, 2019)
Robert Eggers
Absolutely not. (Bloody Disgusting, 2019)
Cynthia Erivo
Yes. My body is suited to it. And I’d love to see what that experience is like. I think I could have a good time doing it. (Hollywood Reporter, 2020)
Giancarlo Esposito
I love those guys at Marvel. We’ve been trying to figure out how to collaborate on something. (ComicBook, 2016)
Rebecca Ferguson
I don’t think my goal is to throw myself into Marvel university. I love their stories, some of their characters are great, but I do it for the stories, for the people you work with, for the directors. We’ll see. (Metro, 2016)
David Fincher
Maybe. I was open to doing a zombie movie. I think in terms of stories — I don’t want to have to go and they say, “Okay, you have to dream up something for Meteor Man.” Or whatever. I don’t want to have to cobble together something around a pre-existing mask or uniform or cape or idea. (SXSW, 2019)
Jodie Foster
No, not interested in the franchise hero, superhero movie at all. It’s just not what I do. I’m glad other people do it and there’s always been those kinds of films, and there will always be those kinds of movies. It’s just now there’s been kind of, there’s a word for it in business where features as a business model have been more keen on, 95 percent of what they do is $200 million plus action films that appeal to all four quadrants that are these high-risk action films. It’s just not what I do. (ScreenCrush, 2018)
Cary Fukunaga
No, not really. I feel like they’ve all been taken... I do think there’s a place to make intelligent, big films. It depends on sensibility, too. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy. (Vulture, 2015)
Greta Gerwig
I would be open to doing a bigger film but at the same time I think, for me, one of the guiding principles of what I try to do to make my career as I have tried to make it, I always have a sense of what I would drop everything for and I think the thing that I would drop everything for is my own work that I write and that I make. It’s not that I’m not interested in those things, it’s just that they don’t come first. (Silver Screen Riot, 2015)
Hugh Grant
[I was recently offered one, but] there was a scheduling and family issue. Otherwise, I was absolutely up for it. It was a juicy role. It was a baddie. I love a good baddie. (Variety, 2019)
James Gray
I have no problem with Marvel. I’ve taken my children to Marvel movies and it’s a great experience — a bonding experience. It’s beautiful, and those films are brilliantly made. I loved the first Captain America. Terrific movie. So it’s not about shitting on them. The problem is not that — the problem is only that. It’s like if you went to the supermarket and you saw only one brand of cereal. Special K is all they had. Special K is not a bad-tasting cereal, but if that’s the only one you could get it would be awfully frustrating. If the movie business starts catering to smaller and smaller groups, it’s going to start hurting itself in a major way. I would argue that it already has. It’s my job as a director to try and push back against that a little bit. (IndieWire, 2019)
Eva Green
I really like physical stuff, actually. Even 300, I loved doing the training. It was thrilling to play that very strong woman. You get out of your head as an actor and you find the character through physical training. I’d love to do more of the superhero stuff. (ComingSoon, 2019)
Jon Hamm
It depends on the script, what the story is. I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I have read comic books since I was nine or younger. And I am pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I like the genre, and I like when they are done well. (Hollywood Reporter, 2018)
Armie Hammer
I haven’t seen a superhero movie in a long time where I thought, “Fuck, I wish I was in that.” You know? So for me there’s not, like, a huge rush. (Happy Sad Confused, 2017)
Neil Patrick Harris
I’d love to be some sort of villain in a big-budget action movie. Or a superhero franchise. That’d be rad. (Interview Magazine, 2015)
Ethan Hawke
I guess I’ve been offered things like that that didn’t appeal to me. You have to be careful about what you’re famous for. You don’t want to be famous for something you don’t love. It brings people a lot of pain when that happens. (ScreenCrush, 2018)
Lucas Hedges
I don’t see myself signing a long-term contract. That sounds frightening. Some of those actors who are in those movies really make challenging material work. That’s really impressive. I don’t see that as a challenge I’m dying to take on. (Hollywood Reporter, 2019)
Taraji P. Henson
I would love to be a Marvel superhero. (The New York Times, 2017)
Ron Howard
I’ve had opportunities over the years. I really feel like you shouldn’t make a movie as a kind of exercise. You have to be all the way in. I was never a comic book guy. I like the movies when I see them, especially the origin stories. I never felt like I could be on the set, at 3 o’clock in the morning, tired, with 10 important decisions to make, and know, intuitively, what the story needs. (Happy Sad Confused, 2015)
Glenn Howerton
If Marvel came along and wanted me to play a superhero, I probably would because I think that would be really, really fun. (GQ, 2018)
Charlie Hunnam
I didn’t grow up a comic book fan and I haven’t really seen any of those Marvel films or the Batman films. It’s just not really my taste.... It’s not part of my vision for my career or what I aspire to. (Yahoo, 2017) taste.
Peter Jackson
I’m not a superhero guy. (Empire, 2019)
Lily James
I want to do more action. I want to be a superhero. (Refinery29, 2016)
Barry Jenkins
I’m friends with Ryan Coogler, and just seeing his path from Fruitvale Station to Black Panther, and seeing that his voice has arrived at Black Panther intact and he’s creating on this scale that I think has far more reach than the scale I’m creating on right now. Yeah, if the right character presented itself — I can’t imagine Ryan directing Doctor Strange, I just can’t. But I think even superheroes are characters. And I think what Ryan did so well in Black Panther was showing the human being that T’Challa is. So, if something like that presented itself, yeah, I’d be interested. So long as I had the freedom to create the way I create. (Houston Chronicle, 2018)
Charlie Kaufman
Of course. But — no one wants me to do that. (IndieWire, 2016)
Jennifer Kent
The opportunity has been there if I really wanted to pursue that path and it still probably is to some extent. I am excited by this aboriginal Marvel character, Manifold. Aboriginal culture is the oldest culture in the earth; it’s so sophisticated and deep. It would interest me to take that out to the planet. There could be some amazing story there. (IndieWire, 2019)
John Krasinski
I would love to be in the Marvel universe. I love those movies because they’re fun, but I also think they’re really well done. And certainly a lot of my friends are in those movies. (Total Film, 2020)
Mila Kunis
No, that’s a lot of working out. Lots of those people are hungry, and you have to be because you have to be in shape and I don’t want to be hungry for 10 years. (MTV, 2018)
David Lowery
I grew up reading Marvel comic books and it’s a joy to see the aesthetic replicated on screen so thoroughly. Yet the aesthetic is so well-grounded at this point I don’t think there’s anything I could contribute to it. So the answer is likely no. But I do love superheroes, so there might be the right superhero movie out there I may want to delve in. (Maclean’s, 2017)
Rooney Mara
I don’t really get offered those parts, or maybe I do. I don’t even know. Maybe I do and I just don’t even realize it and just say no to them. For me it’s just all about the director and it’s all about the script and the story. (Deadline, 2016)
Matthew McConaughey
I did Sing, I did Kubo and the Two Strings. But other than that I’m like, what have I done that my kids can see? ... I’ll be there in a little while! I’ll do something. (Fandango, 2018)
Adam McKay
We’re always kind of talking. I think Feige is just the greatest, and what they’re doing is amazing. (Happy Sad Confused, 2018)
Christopher McQuarrie
I must tell you, the possibility of my doing a superhero movie is remote in the extreme. (Twitter, 2019)
Sam Mendes
The funniest letter I got — they were sending [a packet for] The Avengers, right? For directors to pitch — and I got a package, which was full of comic books, but no treatment; there was no script. But the cover letter said “Marvel’s Avengers will be released on May 3, 2012” or whatever it was. That was the first sentence of the cover letter. Not, “We have the pleasure of enclosing the materials…” or “Here is the script for…” But the release date.... I mean, that’s not my world particularly. I’ll go see it, particularly with my kids, but I didn’t want to make it. (Moviefone, 2012)
Sienna Miller
I feel quite content. It’s a huge commitment to have the ambition to be playing those parts and to be doing those roles. I don’t know that I have that, the ambition that it takes, the drive that it takes. Yes, I think I have subconsciously shied away from that, I think the idea of that is daunting. (The Guardian, 2017)
Helen Mirren
Oh yes! ... I’d probably have to be the baddie. You know, because I’m British. (CineMovie, 2013)
Viggo Mortensen
I’m just looking for good stories, and the ones I’ve happened to find and commit to have happened to be in other countries, or are independent films. I’m not trying to avoid any kind of budget or genre of movies. (LA Times, 2016)
Elisabeth Moss
I don’t think I’m good at the whole green screen thing, but I’m not averse to trying it out. I’m more into, like, a weird concentration camp miniseries [laughs]. That’s a sure path to my own Marvel movie. (MovieMaker Magazine, 2019)
Carey Mulligan
I don’t think I would be very good in something like that. (The Resident, 2018)
Eddie Murphy
No! I’m going to be 60 in a year. Who would I play? The old brotherman? I guess that’d be the character.... Man, fuck that. I can’t be standing around in a movie with a stick and shit, pointing and telling people, “Oh, you should do this or that.” I’m just not down with the whole superhero movie thing. But, if I had to, I guess I could play a villain or some shit like that. (IndieWire, 2019)
David Oyelowo
I tread with caution around the notion of those kinds of characters. Depending on which one of them you’re playing, there’s always a danger you’re going to get so identified with this larger than life character that it could become tougher for audiences to believe you in other roles. (The Wrap, 2015)
Al Pacino
I would do anything that I could understand in terms of how I fit in it. And you know, of course if I could fit in it. Anything’s possible. You know, I did Dick Tracy and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. (Deadline, 2014)
Dev Patel
I had a wee bit of a scarring experience when I attempted to be a part of a franchise, and it didn’t quite hit the mark. It makes you evaluate what kind of mark you want to leave on the industry. (Esquire, 2016)
Jordan Peele
So many of those properties — it’s a childhood dream to be able to essentially see what you saw in your imagination as a child, watching or reading or whatever you were doing with that stuff. It’s a filmmaker’s dream. But you know, I feel like I only have so much time. I have a lot of stories to tell, and it just doesn’t feel right. It just doesn’t feel right. I’m a comic book and graphic novel appreciator, but I can’t call myself a true fan boy. (Rolling Stone, 2019)
Sean Penn
You asked me with a camera on this face and in this time of my life if I would be a superhero? (laughs) Maybe, if there’s a very funny one. (Reuters, 2015)
Brad Pitt
I don’t think so. I think there’s enough. I don’t think I have anything to add. (24 Oras, 2019)
Daniel Radcliffe
If it was good enough and something I was interested in. I’m not sure if I’d sign up for something that was another seven or eight films or ten years, but a shorter franchise, yeah. (Business Insider, 2016)
Lynne Ramsay
When I was 15 or 16, I had a boyfriend who was an obsessive fan [of comics]. His apartment was so full of comic-books he made a path through the boxes to get places.... My boyfriend at the time was always on about the psychology of the characters, the ones that he really liked tended to have these strange histories. A lot of them are quite Freudian and strange. I liked Bill Sienkiewicz’s work, and Alan Moore is so special.
The ones I liked were deeply, darkly screwed-up reflections of the world – where you can see how they became what they became and that past was super-psychological.... There’s some amazing things in graphic novels and comic-books, and they taught me a lot about filmmaking as well. Someone said to me that You Were Never Really Here’s like a graphic novel. I think I’ve learned a lot about filmmaking through comic-books, in terms of how to tell a story visually. That had an influence on me. If you’re able to do it without a committee, with a real set approach to it, where you have freedom and people trust you, that would be amazing. (Yahoo, 2018)
Eddie Redmayne
I love the films. You know how in summer, when studios compete for people to see their summer blockbusters, I am their dream. I see all of them. I would never rule out the opportunity to be in one. (The Sun, 2015)
Nicolas Winding Refn
I love Hollywood. I love glamour and glitz. I love camp. I love vanity, I love egos, I indulge in all that, but the bigger kind of approaches or the offers that have come my way or the interest, in the end, I’ve always just felt that I wasn’t the right person in the end for it. Doesn’t mean that it won’t happen. I mean I would love to do one of those comic book movies. (Collider, 2019)
Kelly Reichardt
There’s absolutely no danger of that happening [laughs]. But maybe there’s something for me somewhere in between that and my sort of films. I did really enjoy doing my little wagon crash in Meek’s Cutoff. It was one of the most fun things I ever did, and I suddenly realized, “Oh, this is why people love to smash things up. It’s so much fun!” (Variety, 2016)
Boots Riley
I have a problem with superheroes in general, because, politically, superheroes are cops. Superheroes work with the government to uphold the law. And who do the laws work for? Put it like this: We all love bank robbers, because we know that in the two sides of that equation, the robbers are the ones to root for, not the banks. Only in superhero movies and the news do they try to make us think we’re against the bank robbers. (The New York Times, 2018)
Guy Ritchie
I’m up for it.... I’m a guy that likes to work so I’m gonna work. And I’ll work with whatever I can to make it work. I’m not an absolutist about what a genre is so I’m not a no-man, I’m a yes-man when it comes to making something manifest. (Variety, 2017)
Gina Rodriguez
I would love to be a superhero—that’s all I want to do is play a superhero. (E! Online, 2015)
Saoirse Ronan
If a script came along that was strong, interesting, original, I would take it. A good script is a good script. (Vogue, 2018)
Winona Ryder
No one is banging my door down to be a superhero. I don’t know how good I would be. I have low bone density, so I don’t know if anyone really wants to put me in a cape and chuck me out a window. (Collider, 2016)
Josh Safdie
A studio offered us to do a sequel to this huge comic-book thing. We just said, “No, we don’t wanna do that!” But we are interested in working in the studio system. (The Independent, 2017)
Andrew Scott
Absolutely, I wouldn’t say no. But it very much depends on the character. And what exactly it is that you’re doing. I’ve definitely had conversations about that world before, but as yet, it hasn’t transpired. So for me, it just depends on the acting requirement. The films are definitely really cool. So, I don’t know. We’ll wait and see. (Digital Spy, 2019)
Amanda Seyfried
They’re highly enjoyable. I love being an audience member. I just don’t want to put on the suit. Nope, I’m not into [stunts]. That’s not where I see my career going. (Late Night with Seth Meyers, 2015)
Alexander Skarsgård
If you do it with the right tone, then sure. (The Guardian, 2015)
Steven Soderbergh
Well, look, those movies are bananas. I see some of them and I’m like, “I couldn’t direct 30 seconds of that.” Just because so much of my time would be spent on things I’m ultimately not interested in. You look at my career, and it’s mostly just two people in a room. Two people in a room to me is exciting. If you look at history, it's the way gigantic things happen; it’s the result of two people in a room. I’ve always felt that was the richest tapestry you could come up with. So anything that isn’t about that, I’m immediately kind of like, “Well, why isn’t it two people in a room?” So you’re just spending all this time having conversations with VFX people, instead of with actors about what the scene is. And that’s what I’m interested in. It’s not that I’m a snob. It’s just that I wasn’t into comic books as a kid, and I’m not interested in things that don’t have to do with performance. (W Magazine, 2017)
Aaron Sorkin
I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel. I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’ve never been exposed to one. So, I’m hoping that somewhere in their library is a comic book character that I’m gonna love and I’m gonna wanna go back and start reading from the first issue on. (ComicBook, 2017)
Lakeith Stanfield
I would love to play the Joker. That’d be beautiful. (Jimmy Kimmel Live, 2020)
Kristen Stewart
I think maybe what I’ve learned is that I don’t want to do another [big franchise] ever again [laughs] … No, I mean, sure. Maybe. I never really limit myself. (Konbini, 2019)
Justin Theroux
There are younger guys than me that are better at it than I am. I’ll leave it up to them. (Vulture, 2014)
Jean-Marc Vallée
If the script is great, yeah. But so far, it’s not my cup of tea. (Hollywood Reporter, 2016)
Paul Verhoeven
If I could add some other level to it, but if it's the same as whatever those other people are doing right now, then no. No! I'm not saying it's not possible, but, like, when they wanted to pit Batman against Superman [laughs, hands flailing] My God! (Metro, 2016)
Denis Villeneuve
No, because I’m not from that culture. I’m French-Canadian which means that my culture is European. I was influenced by authors from France and Belgium, and Europeans are graphic novelists. Honestly, I know very little about most of them. (Happy Sad Confused, 2017)
Mark Wahlberg
I’m not leaving my trailer in a cape. (American Film Market, 2016)
Lulu Wang
[Big movies like that are] really made by committee. And that’s one of the reasons I don’t want to do it right now. Because I haven’t figured out my voice yet as a filmmaker. (Hollywood Reporter, 2019)
Denzel Washington
I haven’t been approached. You know, we’ll see what happens. (, 2018)
Ben Wheatley
They usually take people after two films, and [Free Fire was] film six. So you can safely say they’ll not come fucking knocking on my door. (Q&A, 2017)
Olivia Wilde
Totally, yeah. Absolutely. (MTV, 2019)
Evan Rachel Wood
I would love to be a superhero or something. (Cinephiled, 2014)
Steven Yeun
I’d like to do anything, if it comes my way and moves me I’m into it. (South China Morning Post, 2020)

2019.12.29 16:20 BunyipPouch I saw 192 movies in theaters in 2019. Here is my full ranking.

This year I went to see 192 different movies in theaters, plus one rewatch. That's up from 162 in 2018, 140 in 2017, 9 in 2016, and 5 in 2015. I usually go 3 or 4 times per week, mostly on weekends. I keep track of dates/theaters/movies/ratings for fun and save all of the stubs.
My ratings are what I give the movie right after seeing it, with no real 'checklist' or anything, mostly just initial thought/enjoyment/opinion. It's not meant to be taken super seriously, I'm not a professional reviewer.
This is my full ranking for the year, from favorite to least-favorite, with a few small reviews/thoughts thrown in:
Monos - 10/10 - Hands-down my favorite movie of the year and honestly high on my all-time list. It's Apocalypse Now meets Lord of the Flies, with some Beasts of No Nation thrown in. It builds a unique, lived-in world that's believable and brutal. Beautifully-filmed, some of the best shots of the year (the ending shot gets seared in your mind). Modern and grounded look at a militia/cartel fighting against an unnamed enemy in a Colombian jungle. It almost feels post-apocalyptic instead of 'cartel vs government', which I really loved. You get to imagine your own backstory as the story unfolds. Unforgiving and gut-wrenching, but hopeful too. Got a lot out of its cast. Can't recommend this movie enough. Really disappointed this didn't make the Best Foreign Language Film shortlist. "Masterpiece" gets thrown around a lot, but in my mind this is the only one this year.
Marriage Story - 10/10
The Farewell - 10/10
Journey to a Mother's Room - 9/10 - Biggest surprise of the year, came out of nowhere. Deeply-personal story between a mother & daughter. It's very basic on the surface, and there's not much story (you start at Point A, and end at Point A), but it's the most emotional movie of the year. If you don't cry at least 3 times during this, you're probably not human. It's all about the unbreakable connection you have to your parent(s), from the day you're born until the day you die. It only takes place over the course of a few months, but feels like lifetimes. Beautiful little movie about separation, loss, and human connection.
Waves - 9/10 - I could write 20 pages on how much I loved this movie. To keep it short, it's got a perfect soundtrack, perfect setting, awards-worthy performances (from Kelvin Harrison Jr., Sterling K. Brown, and Taylor Russell). Visceral story that grips you from the first minute and doesn't let go until the closing shot. Unique use of colors and aspect-ratio. It takes a huge risk structurally that pays off. It's also the only movie I went to see twice this year. Really worth it too, picked up on a lot of stuff on the second viewing. Would've went a third time if theaters kept it playing longer. Every tiny decision/action has a huge impact. Just watch this.
Last Black Man In San Francisco - 9/10
Birds of Passage - 9/10
Apollo 11 - 9/10 - The best documentary of the year. Probably the best editing (and use of sound) I've ever seen/heard in a documentary. It's unique because they don't use interviews like most documentaries do, it's real sound the whole through. Impressive use of archival footage/audio.
Uncut Gems - 9/10 - This movie wasn't on the Best Original Score shortlist for the 2020 Oscars. This aggression will not stand.
The Mustang - 9/10
Wild Rose - 9/10 - If this doesn't win the Oscar for Best Original Song ('Glasgow'), I've lost all faith in the Academy. The ending concert scene had me crying like a baby. Jessie Buckley is gonna be big. Best music-drama since A Star Is Born.
Transit - 9/10
Ad Astra - 9/10 - Top-notch acting, great atmosphere, world-building, existentialism, beautiful VFX, engaging score. Best opening scene of the year. Thoughtful commentary on modern society all wrapped in a Heart of Darkness blanket. If you're into space/exploration movies, then I recommend this. Surprised at the backlash this movie has gotten on /movies.
The Report - 9/10 - This was a really good year for legal-thrillers and The Report was the cream of the crop. Tight, Sorkin-like script with top performances from Adam Driver & Annette Bening. Could change a lot of minds about the war on terror and use of torture.
Parasite - 9/10
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood - 9/10
Midnight Traveler - 9/10 - If you feel like life is unfair and the odds are stacked against you, watch this movie. It puts everything in a different perspective. Every problem you have is going to seem minuscule compared to what this family went through. It's eye-opening and should fill you with anger.
Luce - 9/10 - It's Kelvin Harrison Jr's world and we're just living in it.
The Irishman - 8/10
Mickey and the Bear - 8/10 - Camila Morrone puts in the best breakout performance of the year. PTSD, drug-addiction, alcoholism, rural Montana, toxic relationships, James Badge Dale, following your dreams. What's not to love?
The Art of Self Defense - 8/10 - The best dark-comedy of the year. So many great one liners. It's like Yorgos Lanthimos directing Death of Stalin, set in a karate studio. Surprisingly violent and depressing, but in all the right ways. Jesse Eisenberg's best movie since.....The Social Network?
Peanut Butter Falcon - 8/10 - "Am I going to die?" "We all do, it's only a matter of time, now stop being a little bitch." - Favorite line of the year, really stuck with me.
Everybody Knows - 8/10
Mary Magdalene - 8/10
Knives Out - 8/10 - Well-crafted whoddunit with an ensemble cast. Just a genuinely fun time at the movies. Ana de Armas with well-deserved leading role for once. A few of the characters are a tad bit unrealistic (and basically caricatures), but the movie doesn't take itself seriously enough for that to be a problem. Daniel Craig hamming it up with a Southern accent was fun. Old school film with a modern twist.
The Lighthouse - 8/10
The Dead Don't Die - 8/10 - This movie really isn't for everyone, but I loved the dry humor and purposefully-bad chemistry/dialogue. The line delivery was off-putting but hilarious. Everything is extremely on-the-nose and it works. I could watch 10 hours of Tom Waits talking to himself.
Us - 8/10
Villains - 8/10
Ford v Ferrari - 8/10
Midsommar - 8/10
Jojo Rabbit - 8/10
Official Secrets - 8/10 - Keira Knightley with one of the most underrated performances of the year. Another really good legal/political-thriller that exposes the dark side of government bureaucracy.
Pain & Glory - 8/10
John Wick 3: Parabellum - 8/10
Queen & Slim - 8/10
Amazing Grace - 8/10 - Great concert-documentary. Some of Aretha Franklin's performances in this should give you insane chills. I actually had this one rated higher right after watching it, but then looked up some of the people shown on screen and it turns out some were real pieces of shit, while preaching to people like hypocrits. Felt gross and took a lot of the magic out. One of my few revised scores this year.
A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood - 8/10
Joker - 8/10
Non-Fiction - 8/10 - It's very French (talky and sexual) and the writing seems impressed with itself, but it's a good adult-drama that surprised me. I'm a big fan of Olivier Assayas and this is some of his best work.
Rocketman - 8/10
Stan & Ollie - 8/10
Hustlers - 8/10
Avengers Endgame - 8/10
Doctor Sleep - 8/10 - It gets bloated and probably needed to be 20-30 minutes shorter (there's a shit ton of side-characters), but it was a worthwhile sequel to The Shining. Didn't feel like a cash grab and carries its own weight.
Booksmart - 8/10
Little Monsters - 8/10 - I'd recommend watching this based just on Josh Gad's character. So over-the-top and hilarious. When he starts chugging hand sanitizer might be the most I laughed in a theater this year. Also Lupita Nyong'o playing & singing on the ukulele to a bunch of kids is exactly what I needed in my life. Cute zombie-comedy with a ton of heart.
Spider-Man: Far From Home - 8/10
A Hidden Life - 8/10 - If there's a song from this year (or this decade even) that I'd want played at my funeral, it's James Newton Howard's theme from this movie. It's so beautiful and perfectly captures the feel of the movie. That song broke me down every time it played. I can't imagine this movie without it, it's that good. It's a shame this movie is getting ignored this awards season.
Never Look Away - 8/10
Toy Story 4 - 8/10
Pavarotti - 8/10
The Biggest Little Farm - 8/10- If you're really into the inner-workings of a Californian farm, then this is the documentary for you.
Abominable - 8/10
The Current War - 7/10
Artic - 7/10 - Well made, solidly-acted. I loved the small details about survival that this movie brings up, makes it very grounded and realistic. I'm kinda bored of survival movies in general so this didn't blow my mind or anything.
Bombshell - 7/10
Honey Boy - 7/10 - Pretty big letdown because I had really high expectations for this one. Lacked the emotional punch I hoped for. Didn't land for me at all, kind of like Boy Erased last year. I appreciate how honest and revealing it was, took a lot of guts for Shia LaBeouf to put this out there but it's forgettable. Lucas Hedges' Shia impression was reallllly on point though, that was worth the price of admission right there. Mid90s last year was a 10/10 for me and I expected the same for this. It was good, not great.
American Woman - 7/10 - Sienna Miller's performance in this is awards-worthy. The accent she does is perfect and it might be the most underrated role of the year. The movie gets way too tearjerky at the end though. It's basically 2 hours of bad shit happening to a good person, which gets a bit overwhelming.
The Beach Bum - 7/10
Captain Marvel - 7/10
Spies In Disguise - 7/10 - Looked pretty generic based on the trailer, but was actually pretty funny.
Cold Pursuit - 7/10
Tolkien - 7/10 - Not much happens but it felt really comfortable. Solid performances all around and they handled the WW1 scenes better than I thought they would. Expected to be bored out of my mind based on the reviews and trailer but it flowed well. As far as "Nicholas Hoult Biopics of Famous Writers" go, it's miles ahead of Rebel in the Rye 2 years ago.
Jumanji: The Next Level - 7/10
Sauvage/Wild - 7/10
Detective Pikachu - 7/10
Maiden - 7/10
Dark Waters - 7/10 - . Good performances and an okay script, even though it beats you over the head sometimes. Total waste of Anne Hathaway. She's way too good of an actress for a boring, generic, 'supporting wife' role with just a few lines. Not even sure why she was in this. Overall, a solid legal-thriller, which is a genre I really enjoy and I've been missing since its late-90s heyday. Pretty crazy story too, scummy and evil corporate greed is always interesting to explore on film (like The Insider). Should've been 20 minutes shorter and less on-the-nose
Adopt A Highway - 7/10
The Wedding Guest - 7/10
The Hummingbird Project - 7/10
Motherless Brooklyn - 7/10
The Lion King - 7/10
Last Christmas - 7/10 - It's really easy to bash this movie, a lot of the humor falls flat and the twist is ridiculous, but I couldn't help walking out with a smile. I love how committed Emilia Clarke was to the character, and her interactions with her boss and family were legitimately heart-warming at times. Also did I mention how ridiculous that twist is?
Richard Jewell - 7/10 - This was decent. Even though it's clearly Clint Eastwood's personal crusade (and thinly-veiled propaganda piece in some regards) against the FBI & the Spooky Media™, it still told the story effectively/semi-believably. Some of the characters (Hamm/Wilde obviously) were pretty ridiculous caricatures though, was hard to take anything they said seriously, I mean come on. You just roll your eyes at most of what they say. Some of the situations and encounters are too-conveniently set-up but that's easy to overlook. It had very solid performances (Hauser was great, especially when he finally let's his emotion show, in that scene where he kicks the table). Much better than The Mule, and 20x better than 15:17 To Paris.
Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker - 7/10
21 Bridges - 7/10
Before You Know It - 7/10
Hobbs & Shaw - 7/10 - This is peak "Stupid Summer Popcorn Movie" and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's The Meg of 2019.
Fighting With My Family - 7/10
Pet Sematary - 7/10
Downton Abbey - 7/10 - Never saw a single episode of the show before watching the movie, but it still felt familiasafe to jump right in.
Yesterday - 7/10
Greta - 7/10 - It's a cheesy, predictable, non-scary horror film but I liked it. Sometimes you just need Isabelle Hupert to play a psychopathic serial killer. Felt very old-school, a movie straight out of the 1980s.
Judy - 7/10 - It's the definition of Oscar bait and is emotionally manipulative, especially towards the end, but it does a great job at humanizing a Hollywood legend.
Frozen 2 - 7/10
Aladdin - 7/10
The Souvenir - 7/10
Zombieland 2: Double Tap - 7/10 - Nowhere near as memorable/iconic as the first one, but it still got a bunch of laughs from me (especially the Thomas Middleditch/Luke Wilson scene). Above-average for a comedy-sequel, but I could see this one not aging well.
The Two Popes - 6/10 - Two solid performances but underwhelming overall, too many cheap-looking flashback scenes, not enough Pryce/Hopkins. Reminded me of Can You Ever Forgive Me? last year, depending on the 2 leads to carry a weak movie/premise on their back, to disappointing results. Highly-overrated movie.
Ready Or Not - 6/10
Anna - 6/10 - It's basically Red Sparrow but slightly worse.
Saint Frances - 6/10
Hotel Mumbai - 6/10
Shazam! - 6/10 - Low-stakes, formulaic, superhero movie clearly made with strict budget limitations. It hits all the notes you'd expect a movie like this to hit. It was decent.
Alita: Battle Angel - 6/10
Loro - 6/10 - One of the more disappointing movies of the year. On paper it sounds amazing, a sprawling biopic of an infamous/corrupt Italian politician/mogul by Paolo Sorrentino who's not that far removed from a masterpiece? Sign me the fuck up. But nah, this was a shallow, surface-level (like my reviews), pointless dull knife of a biopic. Too much shoehorned religious imagery too. Tone is all over the place. It can't decide whether it's serious or funny and gets lost in-between. It looked nice at least. It also wins this year's "Most Nudity" award, easily beating the rest of the field.
Teen Spirit - 6/10
The Upside - 6/10
Gloria Bell - 6/10 - Great performance from Julianne Moore but this just felt like "Middle-Aged Crisis: The Movie". Just couldn't connect to it. I imagine the original is a lot better.
On The Basis Of Sex - 6/10
Stockholm - 6/10
Give Me Liberty - 6/10 - This is an example of a movie that has its heart in the right place but bites off a lot more than it can chew. There's a beautiful, emotional story in here somewhere, but it's too muddled with ineffective editing tricks and too many side-stories. It's sweet in some ways and the true-life characters bring a lot of charm, but it didn't do that much for me. A lot of 'year-end' lists have this as one of the most overlooked movies of the year, but I don't see it. Rough editing, bad soundtrack.
Child's Play - 6/10
Good Boys - 6/10 - Just watch Booksmart instead.
Styx - 6/10
Woman at War - 6/10
The Lego Movie 2 - 6/10
Missing Link - 6/10
Long Shot - 6/10 - The chemistry between Charlize Theron & Seth Rogen was great but the jokes couldn't really match it. It's a unique mix of politics & humor, but fell short of being an actual crowd-pleaser.
Echo in the Canyon - 6/10
Cyrano, My Love - 6/10
Dora the Explorer - 6/10
Brittany Runs A Marathon - 6/10
IT: Chapter 2 - 6/10 - Way too long. Felt like a never-ending series of fetch-quests. Good CGI & acting though.
Mister America - 6/10
Crawl - 6/10
Trial By Fire - 6/10 - Great performances by Laura Dern & Jack O'Connell get overshadowed by an overly-preacy script. It doesn't let the audience make up its own mind.
The Third Wife - 6/10
Godzilla: King of Monsters - 5/10 - This needed less humans, more monsters.
Glass - 5/10
Escape Room - 5/10
Terminator: Dark Fate - 5/10
Dumbo - 5/10
All Is True - 5/10
Brightburn - 5/10
The White Crow - 5/10 - One of those biopics where the movie doesn't do justice to the story. Reading the Wikipedia page on this guy's life, you'd except an Oscar contender. Instead it was just okay. Watch Cold War instead. It's basically this movie but better.
High Life - 5/10 - Unpleasant.
Where'd You Go Bernadette? - 5/10
Scary Stories to Tell Dark - 5/10
Her Smell - 5/10 - This movie made me physically nauseous. The tight, claustrophobic, haze-filled shots in the first 2 acts really threw me off. It's temporarily redeemed by a reallllllly good third act and a solid performance from Elisabeth Moss. But then deflated by a terrible final scene.
By the Grace of God - 5/10 - Based on the critical acclaim, director, and subject matter, I walked in expected to be blown away. Basically expected Spotlight, but this movie completely derails at the halfway point. Hard to sit through.
Blinded by the Light - 5/10
The Best of Enemies - 5/10
The Aeronauts - 5/10 - This is mis-marketed as an intense survival story but it's really just a boring biopic with too many flashbacks.
Fall of the American Empire - 5/10
Family - 5/10
The Goldfinch - 5/10 - It turns out an unfilmable novel really is unfilmbable, who would've thought? Shoutout to Jeffrey Wright & Finn Wolfhard for actually trying.
Angel Has Fallen - 5/10
Gemini Man - 5/10
Late Night - 5/10
Black and Blue - 5/10
Diane - 5/10 - This was just depression-porn. Sometimes it works (Mungiu/Zvyagintsev), sometimes it doesn't (this movie). It's such a bummer. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone but Mary Kay Place's performance makes it watchable and engaging sometimes.
Destroyer - 5/10
How To Train Your Dragon 3 - 5/10
Rafiki - 5/10 - I feel bad for this score because I get that this is a really important/significant movie for African Cinema, but I just couldn't get past the terrible acting, bad (like baaaaaad) dialogue, and lackluster story. Again, pretty big achievement that this got made and reached a global audience, but yeah, in a vacuum, it's undoubtedly a bad movie. Felt like an amateur movie on a shoestring budget.
Captive State - 4/10
Wild Nights With Emily - 4/10 - This movie is what happens when someone asks the question "hey, what if we turned Emily Dickinson's life into an SNL skit?". I get what they were going for, and Molly Shannon is great, but this was extremely unfunny and probably the longest 84-minute movie I've ever seen.
Dark Pheonix - 4/10
The Addams Family - 4/10
Midway - 4/10
To Dust - 4/10
Rojo - 4/10 - The only memorable thing about this movie is that there was a power outage about 90 minutes in so they comped my ticket and gave me a free drink. So that was cool, I guess.
The Kid Who Would Be King - 4/10
MIB: International - 4/10
The Kid - 4/10 - There's a 98% chance that this movie is some kind of tax write-off or money laundering scheme. It somehow got 2 big names (Pratt & Hawke), co-starring the son of the producer in his first movie ever. Directed by Vincent D'Onofrio for some reason (???). Was dumped by Lionsgate in a few hundred theaters with 0 marketing/promotion, and flopped hard. It's dated, boring, and unoriginal. Cheesy dialogue. Literally a story that's been told a million times before, usually in much better ways. No reason for this to exist. Chris Pratt has the worst fake-movie-beard of all time in this, that's kinda worth checking out.
Ramen Shop - 4/10
The Good Liar - 4/10- The most convoluted, needlessly-complicated plot of the year. Helen Mirren & Ian McKellen both phone it in (I don't blame them, they were given trash to work with). I hate when movies try to crowbar "WW2 flashbacks" into their movies when it's not needed.
Climax - 4/10
Harriet - 4/10
Lucy in the Sky - 4/10 - Once or twice a year, a movie comes along that has such a frustrating/stupid/anti-climactic ending it makes me actually angry. This is that movie. Natalie Portman had another movie like that last year (Vox Lux). Hey Noah Hawley, what the fuck?
Freaks - 4/10 - This movie would fit well in the "Good Idea But Bad Execution" subreddit.
Tel Aviv On Fire - 4/10
Ma - 4/10
Frankie - 3/10
Stuber - 3/10
Serenity - 3/10 - In a year full of batshit-crazy twists (looking at you, Last Christmas), this easily had the batshit-iest twist. It's something you actually have to experience yourself, and be fully-immersed in it, to appreciate how mind-numblingly crazy it is. How they got A-list talent for this script is a total mystery, but it probably involves of a lot of favors and cocaine. It's almost "so bad its good". Almost. I can't wait for the sequel, Free Guy, next year.
Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil - 3/10 - More genocide than I expected for a live-action Disney fairy tale movie.
Donnybrook - 3/10
The Photograph - 3/10 - Zzzzzzzzzz...
Charlie's Angels - 3/10
Hellboy - 3/10 - This movie is like that annoying kid in middle school that tries way to hard to be edgy. It's gory and vulgar just for the sake of being gory & vulgar. It reminded me of the Predator reboot last year, had the same kind of dated/forced humor that seems to have no real target audience (except for the aforementioned middle school edgy kid I guess). Bad CGI and a boring villain. iirc it also had a lame sequel-bait ending which I hate.
Happy Death Day 2U - 3/10 -
The Sun Is Also A Star - 3/10 - It's filmed like a generic music video and has the emotional depth of a puddle.
Don't Let Go - 3/10
The Invisibles - 3/10
Playing with Fire - 3/10 - This was just like Mark Wahlberg's Instant Family last year, except that it was worse in every imaginable way. No lie, the end-credits bloopers were by far better than anything else in the movie. It was the only time I even chuckled or felt any type of emotion.
Cats - 2/10 - There's not much more I could say that already hasn't been said. Yes, it was bad. No, it wasn't the worst movie in history. For me, it was just so boring. Forgettable songs (except Beautiful Ghosts), no story/plot, nonsensical ending. Just wanted it to end. Jennifer Hudson just floating into space for no reason, Judi Dench giving me unwarranted lessons about raising cats, Ian McKellen slurping milk from a bowl, Extremely-Hairy-And-Naked-Idris-Elba, Cockroach Genocide, etc. These things all happened and we can't change them, and for us to grow as a society, we need to just move on and learn from our mistakes.
Rambo: Last Blood - 2/10
The Sound of Silence - 2/10 - More like The Sound of Boredom, amirite? No but seriously, that's all I got. This movie was the closest I got to falling asleep in my seat this year.
Synonyms - 2/10
Black Christmas - 2/10 - Extremely cheesy dialogue, cop-out violence, boring/predictable jump scares, low production value (bad even for a low-end Blumhouse movie), some of the worst one-liners you've ever heard, unrealistic/2D characters. Shitty ending. Wayyyyy too heavy-handed with the message. About as subtle as a flying brick to the forehead. Amateur acting, cutaway for every death, etc etc.
After the Wedding - 2/10 - Overacted, muddled garbage.
47 Meters Down Uncaged - 1/10
Shaft - 1/10 - Crude, unfunny, soulless, grating, pointless. There's a million adjectives I could use to describe this reboot, and none of them are positive. This is one I'm surprised I didn't just walk out of. Probably didn't have anything better do do that day.
Jexi - 1/10 - This year's worst movie. It's just the kind of movie that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, like you need to watch something else to get the stink of this one out of your mind. It was just so mean-spirited, from start to finish. Not a single joke landed, you just hated all of the characters. There are no redeeming factors. On the technical side, it was very basic, looked like a cheap music video. No memorable scenes, no good lines of dialogue, no originality in any way. None of the "cheerful"/"pick-me-up" moments earn any kind of emotional reaction. If you had a freshman high-school film student remake Her as a shitty comedy, this would be it. The fact that I paid money to see this is something I will never live down.

Here is the distribution of theater visits by month:
  • The longest stretch I went without going to the movies was from July 21st thru August 20th, without a single trip to the movies. Partially due to an out-of-country trip and personal stuff. During this time I "missed out" on The Kitchen, The Nightingale, Brian Banks, and Honeyland. Mostly caught up to the rest.
  • The most theater visits in a one-week span was November 1st thru November 8th, with 8 movies that week.
  • The most in one day was 3 movies in theaters on March 15th, 2019 (Styx, To Dust, and Captive State).
  • There were 26 double-headers this year (two movies in theaters during the same day, usually back-to-back).
Solid year, not as many surprises as 2018 though. Going to try to break 200 in 2020.
Here is last year's ranking:

Brad Pitt dating Sienna Miller? Pair seen together at Glastonbury submitted by Same_Rack67 to entertainment [link] [comments]

2017.05.02 18:59 MsBluffy What's Going on in Columbia? May 2-7

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) directed this live-action retelling of the Disney animated classic from 1991. As before, this fairy tale centers on a young woman named Belle (Emma Watson), who is forced to live in an enchanted castle with a prince who is cursed to look like a hideous Beast (Dan Stevens). In time, the pair fall in love as Belle learns to see the good man hiding behind the Beast's monstrous exterior.
BORN IN CHINA - This documentary from Disneynature follows three animal species in the wilds of China: A snow leopard tries to protect her two cubs from predators, a golden snub-nosed monkey squabbles with his family, and a panda mother cares for her child.
THE BOSS BABY - The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.
THE CIRCLE - As Mae rises through the ranks of the world’s largest tech & social media company, she is encouraged by the company’s founder to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom.
COLOSSAL - Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, an unemployed New York City resident who, out of desperation, relocates to her hometown. She quickly lands a job with an old classmate (Jason Sudeikis). Each night, she drinks herself to sleep, and each morning, she wakes up to the same terrible news story: a giant, monstrous creature is wreaking havoc in Seoul, South Korea. Gloria soon makes a startling discovery about the monster. And that's just the start of this riveting, shapeshifting film.
THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS - In the eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious series, Dominic Toretto's crew are rocked to their core when they must face their most dangerous adversary yet: Dom himself (Vin Diesel), who is now working with a shadowy cyber-terrorist known only as Cipher (Charlize Theron). As DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and the rest of the team attempt to fight back, they find themselves in an alliance with their old enemy, assassin Deckard Shaw.
FREE FIRE - Brie Larson, Armie Hammer and Cillian Murphy star in this taut, wildly entertaining chamber piece. Set in Boston during the 1970s, the film unfolds in an abandoned warehouse, where a mysterious businesswoman (Larson) and her wise-cracking associate (Hammer) have arranged a black-market weapons deal between an IRA arms buyer (Murphy) and a South African gun runner (Sharlto Copley). Suffice to say things don't go as planned.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 - Peter Quill and his fellow Guardians are hired by a powerful alien race, the Sovereign, to protect their precious batteries from invaders. When it is discovered that Rocket has stolen the items they were sent to guard, the Sovereign dispatch their armada to search for vengeance. As the Guardians try to escape, the mystery of Peter's parentage is revealed.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND - A secret government organization mounts an expedition to Skull Island, an uncharted territory in the Pacific. Led by an explorer (John Goodman) and a lieutenant colonel (Samuel L. Jackson), the group recruit a disillusioned soldier (Tom Hiddleston) and a photojournalist (Brie Larson) to investigate the island's peculiar seismic activity. But once there, they discover that Skull Island is home to a gigantic ape called King Kong, and find themselves caught up in an ongoing war between the beast and the area's indigenous predators.
THE LOST CITY OF Z - A journey into the Amazon results in a stunning discovery and a mysterious disappearance in The Lost City of Z, an epic about real-life explorer Percy Fawcett. At the dawn of the 20th century, Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) encountered evidence of a previously unknown civilization. His bigoted scientific peers dismiss the claims, but alongside his wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson), Fawcett returns to investigate.
PHOENIX FORGOTTEN - A young woman investigates the disappearance of her brother and his two companions in the Arizona desert. Her quest for answers leads her down a strange path that suggests the “Phoenix Lights” are somehow directly related to her missing sibling.
THE PROMISE - When Michael, a brilliant medical student, meets Ana, their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend Chris, a photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth.
RISK - You might remember Laura Poitras as the artist/journalist who broke the Edward Snowden-NSA story, first in a series of Pulitzer Prize-winning articles and then in an Oscar-winning film called Citizenfour. When Snowden contacted Poitras about blowing the whistle, she was already several years into another top secret documentary: a film intimately following Julian Assange, Sarah Harrison and the rest of the scrappy team at WikiLeaks. Shot over six years, Risk is startlingly up-close and bracingly candid as it studies Assange, his colleagues and Poitras' shifting relationship with the controversial organization.
UNFORGETTABLE - In this woman-centric thriller, a jilted ex-wife (Katherine Heigl) makes life hell for her former husband's new bride (Rosario Dawson) and tries to manipulate her behavior to ultimately come out of top.

2016.06.18 05:13 autotldr Warner Bros Pushes ‘Lego Movie 2’ Release To 2019

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 18%.
Warner Bros has shifted release dates for four of its upcoming films, including The Lego Movie 2, which moves almost a year ahead from 05/18/18 to 02/08/19.
No word on why the sequel to 2014's huge hit has been moved, but it now comes out almost exactly five years to the day after The Lego Movie, and just under two years after The Lego Batman Movie, which bows February 10, 2017.
Not bad symmetry for a franchise that so far has done very well for WB. In addition, Dean Devlin's disaster flick Geostorm is getting shuffled around the schedule for the second time, moving from 1/13/17 to 10/20/17 - it was originally set to bow on October 21, 2016.
The Owen Wilson/Ed Helms comedy Bastards, about two brothers who set out in adulthood to learn who their real father is, has been moved from 11/04/16 to 01/27/17.
Bastards' move to January doesn't denote lack of confidence however, as the new slot sees it up against a new outing from the reliable Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and Trainspotting 2.
Finally, Ben Affleck's next directorial effort Live By Night, a period crime film in which he wrote and also stars in alongside Chris Messina, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, and Brendan Gleeson, has been moved up the schedule, hitting theaters 01/13/17 instead of 10/20/17.

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 88%.
Also starring Sienna Miller and Jeremy Irons and featuring a breakout turn from Luke Evans, the film is getting mixed but intriguing reviews after screenings at TIFF and the San Sebastian Film Festival, with some reviewers adoring it and others not knowing quite what to make of it.
The Divergent Series: Allegiant - March 18, 2016.By now, you know whether you like the Divergent series or not, but if you're a fan, then the third film in the tetralogy should be fairly exciting, especially now that the series has diverged so significantly from the novels.
It won the Locus Award and was nominated for the Hugo Award when it came out in 2007, and is now set to be adapted into a film by John Cameron Mitchell, who is best known for originating the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and directing the acclaimed film Rabbit Hole, starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart.
The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, John Cusack, and The Hunger Games' Isabelle Fuhrman, and will be directed by Tod Williams from a screenplay co-written by King himself.
The Gone World by Thomas Sweterlitsch - TBA.After the success of Sweterlitsch's first novel, Tomorrow and Tomorrow, the film rights to his upcoming follow-up The Gone World were optioned before the book even got an official release date.
Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black was attached to direct the film back in 2014, but has been put on the backburner while he directed the Ryan Gosling film Nice Guys and works with Fox to reboot the Predator series.

2015.07.27 02:51 ramjeet2 Do Asian and Indian men struggle a lot more in "liberal" areas and with white women that lean liberal/democrat?

As a male of Indian heritage who was born and raised in Texas (a red state), I noticed that I faced little to no issues when it came to attracting women and mostly dated white girls that looked good. It was not uncommon to see Mexican, Indian, and East Asian guys with white girls in Texas and some of these girls were quite attractive too. What got me was that no one made that big of a deal out of it either, people just accepted the couple and everything was alright. I thought that just being good looking and having game would make a guy desirable to various types of women, maybe I was being a bit naive there.
I notice a small trend after reading some posts online about the struggles of Asian and Indian guys in North America. Seems like areas such as San Francisco (liberal area), New York City (very liberal area), Toronto, and Vancouver are places where Asian and Indian guys have it rough.
On one hand, Asian and Indian women in these areas are desperate to get with a white guy as some say. Attractive white women in the "liberal" areas seem to avoid Asian and Indian guys like the plague and automatically group them into a stereotype based on their race and ethnicity, whether it is an FOB or a westernized guy, they are the same thing to them. Lets not even mention white males who lean liberal/democrat, most are happy with a white girl dating a black guy but will riot if a Sienna Miller lookalike hooks up with an Asian or Brown guy.
I have ironically found that white women who lean right or have politically conservative views seem to be much more open to dating an Asian or Indian guy than their "liberal" counterparts.
Now this is the idea I seem to get. I have talked to guys from places like NYC and San Francisco who saw me dating a white girl that was attractive and instantly commented saying how rare or unheard of it would be for an attractive white girl to date an Indian or Asian guy in those cities. On the other hand, I noticed that back in Texas, no one made a big deal out of it.
My experiences are limited but would you say I am on to something here?

2014.11.20 00:10 blueprintorginator2 Have you seen or known hot blondes in the US with boyfriends or husbands that were not white themselves? (celebs don't count)

I understand that this question might seem awkward to some so if that is the case, then don't answer it. In comments, I want to see answers to the question which talk about people you know in real life or have seen. Not pro athletes or famous people. If you are in any ways uncomfortable answer this question, then I prefer you not answer it or post on this question at all.
According to the OkCupid race survey, most white women strongly preferred to date within their own race. Now hot blondes are one subset of White women but they are also some of the most desired, men say they prefer brunettes but a Sienna Miller lookalike has a lot of guys who want to be with her. All that aside I am curious to see with strong data on OkCupid saying that white women in the US prefer not to go interracial at all as a whole, just how improbable this kind of interracial pairing would be.
I live in Northern California and despite the many asian and latino men present, mostly all of the hot blondes here exclusively go for white guys and in some cases a black guy. On the other hand, you see plenty of gorgeous asian and latina women with white men, it is very common here. As a mexican guy, this isn't the best place in the US for exotic looking men because ethnic women (asian, indian, arab, and mexican) strongly go for white men while attractive white women here generally refuse to go for guy that looks exotic (is not white or black).
That's my experience, I want to hear what people on here have to say. If you have seen or known such couples, then what race was the guy? (name as many different races of men you have seen it with)

2013.10.08 00:09 tabledresser [Table] IAmA: I'm Ben Collins AKA 'The Stig' - Ask Me Anything!

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2013-10-07
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
Was it hot inside that helmet? Some say the Stig once took off his helmet only to find another helmet in there.
Only with Sienna Miller.
What sort of measures did you have to take to guard your identity for so many years? P.S. Big fan. I got myself a BBC ID card with a fake name "Richard Jameson" cleverly made of the 3 presenters names - so that i could book hotels and get up to mischief without getting caught. Used to wear a balaclava everywhere to hide my face anywhere near a Top Gear shoot and generally be as sneaky as possible.
What does Jeremy's hair feel like? If you've ever had a scratch in the morning 'down there' then you'll know. Kind of pubey but longer...
Which "some say" are actually true? Is the answer "all of them"? Be honest here. All of them except this one. "Some say he is illegal in 17 US states, and he blinks this way [sideways]. All we know is he’s called the Stig.” - It's actually 18.
Some say his politics are terrifying.
It came about after an extended stay at Jezza's house on the Isle of Mann and he realised that there was someone even extremer than himself.
Were you always the Stig? Or were there stand-in Stigs? I couldn't make a photo shoot once because i was filming for Top Gear elsewhere and they booked a stand in - apparently Jeremy said "get rid of it" and refused to have his photo taken with him, which made me laugh. With some very rare exceptions, i did all of my stuff from walking through London to all the testing off camera and all the studio work.
Did the preseters always know that you were the Stig? The presenters didn't know for a while at first then yes , they knew , but Jeremy often used to open the visor just to double check
For how long had you had access for each supercar? Was it only one or two fast laps or whole day? The tyres can;t take more than 5 / 6 laps on the supercars and we rarely had spares so it was a 25 minute blind date.
Of the three presenters; May, Hammond or Clarkson, whom did you like best? And why? Where you there when Hammond was injured in the rocket car? How awful was that? I really liked working with all three of them! Jeremy can be a pain in @ss but hilarious in the same second, Hammond loves a fight and that's endearing and James is mad, i used to spend hours watching his eyes spinning around like a loon.
I was meant to be there the day Hammond was hurt but was called away to work with Jeremy - it was horrible when it happened and thankfully he pulled through. Like i say he's a fighter.
Can you talk Jeremy and the guys into doing an AMA? If we collectively tweet them to hell i'm sure we could pull it off!
Do you know who the current Stig is? There's several bless them - it was like the night when they fed Gizmo's bothers after midnight and Stigs started popping out everywhere
At first when you came out as 'The Stig' there seemed to be a fued between you and Top Gear but you've been on the show since. How's your relationship with Top Gear now? Frosty but warm - but not boiling, more luke with a slice of lime and hint of mint.
Why aren't you stig anymore? Great job but i decided to leave because after 8 years the game was up in terms of keeping it secret. The BBC had leaked my name to the Radio Times and the tabloids ran varous stories, so i handed in my notice. I wanted to go full time racing again anyway so it was a new lease of life, but it didn't work out well for the cardboard cut-outs of STIG..!
Most of the auto journalists in the UK have a thing against Audis, mostly due to their heritage and understeering nature. Yet you drive one and even became their brand ambassador. How come? What's your secret to having just as much fun in one as a rear wheel driven car? My race mechanic had the original 1991 spec Quattro when i started racing in 1995 and the things he could do with it on a country lane were unreal. More recently when i was racing in Formula 3 my engineer took me out in an A3 and after seeing the way it gripped i got rid of my Toyota Supra and bought the A3, then proceeded to put 250,000 miles on the clock. It refused to die!
In the end that car had leaks everywhere, dents from being parked in London and i had ragged it every second of its life. But it still clung to the road like shit to a rug. I eventually scrapped it, being heartless and needing the cash, but there some love there. Kind of.
Many journalists can't drive very well so i don't believe what i read. And most people should judge a car from their own test drive i reckon. I've never driven an Audi that understeered - the only model that might be over-engineered is the TTRS, but the standard TT is wicked, i drove one last week.
As for heritage.. the rallying pedigree is mega but look at Le Mans. They don't just win - they destroy the competition and having seen up close the attention to detail and the preparation, the skill and the passion that goes into that racing program it makes it hard not to admire them.
If you could come up with your own “some say” intro for The Stig, what would it be? Some say they should just give me the keys and let me drive without the damn intro!
Can you give us two facts about ducks? 1) Most male ducks are silent and very few ducks actually "quack." Instead, their calls may include squeaks, grunts, groans, chirps, whistles, brays and growls.
2) There are more than 40 breeds of domestic duck. The white Pekin duck (also called the Long Island duck) is the most common variety raised for eggs and meat.
Off to fact check - this is the true litmus test of Stigness. Edit: Must be the 'translators', the facts check out. Maybe they simply couldn't understand the odd combination of V12 revs, turn signal clicks, and seat belt alert chimes that are the language of the Stig. It's difficult to hear the muffling from under the helmet but I think that's what was said. Duck facts are serious business. - The Translators
What was your biggest "oh sh*t" moment? I hit a kerb in a Formula 3 car at Rockingham at 135 mph and my point of view was towards a fluffy cloud which i thought might become my final destination. When the car finally landed i had a nice concussion but i managed to win the top wheelie award in Max Power so it ended well.
What would be your favourite car you have driven on Top Gear? Ferrari 458.
How much of the time Stig was on camera did you actually spend in the suit? Was it you walking around London, appearing in studio... etc. I was entirely method. I slept in that suit. I spent family christmases never revealing my identity. To anyone. Not even myself.
Hello Mr Collins, of all of your cousins around the world which is your favourite? And do you think we'll ever get to see a battle of the Stigs? Japanese Stig was excellent because he kept kicking Jeremy in the face, and don't we all want to have a go at that sometimes?
P.s. Big fan, thanks for all of your hard work! There could never be a Stig battle, it would just be far too dangerous as it would most likely create a black hole in space.
Do you only enjoy riding cars? Would you ride motorcycles? If you had rode a motorcycle which do you enjoy more cars or motorcycles? I ride bike, i fall off. i don't like bike.
1) What was your least favorite car to drive? 1) Any kind of TVR.
2) Who was your favorite star in a reasonably priced car? 2) Tom Cruise was amazing, he pushed himself to get a fast time and he was incredibly down to earth.
3) Who was your least favorite star in a reasonably priced car? 3) No one really. There was never a dull day in the office, but I did think I was going to get fired when I scared the shit out of Jack Dee. He tried to get out of a moving car.
Do you like roller coasters? What is the best one you've ridden? Nah, too slow.
Any advice for somebody wanting to get involved in the racing world? Try go karting - its the cheapest fun you can have with your clothes on.
Do you still keep in contact with anyone from Top Gear? Yes - i got to see all the old faces when they came to the set on Skyfall but i've yet to encounter The Clarkson since i left the show. I'm looking forward to that..
Has being a former Stig gotten you out of paying for tickets or vice versa? The Police are pretty cool in my experience but i've only ever pulled The Stig card when i was wearing The Suit - otherwise it would have been a double whammy - jail and get fired. When a cop asked my name (as he detained me on the M1 in a caterham) i shouted slowly "T H E S T I G" and he laughed and walked off.
How did you get the job? What kind of training did you go through to become such a badass driver? Still learning - i had the best teachers which is to say i've raced some big talents and you have to learn quickly or finish 2nd all the time. I got the job by writing to the boss, meeting him and then driving a car - quickly. Quite traditional. I beat the Old Stig's lap times and got hired - SWEET!
Were you actually listening to that stuff in the car? The language CD's and morse codes..? No. I used to tune into Chris Evans though - top man.
I know this would be a long response but here goes my question, I've read somewhat about how it went but I wanna hear it directly from you. What was your routine going in to work. -Did you leave home with the Stig outfit in the trunk and then change before you got there, a special room? Or how did it work out -How did you deal exactly with your payment since I assume it wasn't under your name. -Did you ever get bribed by anyone to tell you who you were? No long response needed...
Thank you so much for this AMA I love Top Gear and you were great as the Stig and it was great to hear all the celebrities say you were a great teacher and made me wish I saw you teaching as the Stig. Get up. Suit up. Shower. Start engine. Leave for work. Method.
Stiggy! Do you enjoy classic American muscle (I drive a '68 Firebird 400)? If so, do you have a favorite? Cheers! I love the old Challenger, purely because of "Vanishing Point" - driving them is something else. When you press the pedals it's like writing a letter and asking politely if the car might respond sometime in the future.
What was your relationship with the cast like on Top Gear when you were The Stig? Did you guys chill out with drinks at all or was it purely professional? I rarely got to hang out because it's hard to drink a beer through the old helmet, but when we toured the world we had some good parties - until the 3 musketeers started playing musical instruments. Then i tended to hail a cab.
Hi Ben, Thank you for doing this. If got given any amount of money to start your own racing series with your own rules, What type of racing could we expect? Death race 2014.
Can I be a part of that? Sir Von Tittyfuck with a name like that, you'd be most welcome.
Any cars you have not yet driven you hope to someday drive? The new McLaren - and the Ferrari P4!
What car have you had the most fun in? Was it the fastest or the smoothest through the corners? Most fun - easily a Formula One car, but actually at Le Mans i drove a car a few years back with an F1 engine, huge wings and killer brakes that was dynamite to drive. 220mph through a winding ribbon of tarmac past trees and people waving beers from a Ferris Wheel - awesome.
Top Gear or Fifth Gear? Top Gear. You can't beat a big fat hairy budget.
Have you ever helped in designing some cars? If yes, what did you do for them? Something more than driving on track? I helped design the Ascari - that's a bit strong really. I drove it and worked with the clever designers so they could chip away at the marble and produce the KZ1. It became a kick-ass racecar and we had a lot of success in FIA GT racing with it, and the GT2 edition was incredible. Had it not been wet on the day we took it to Top Gear it could well have posted the fastest time, still today.
What is your favorite color? Where did "The Stig" nick name come from? Black. Not white. Controversial eh?
Wanna play me in Mario Kart? I bet I could take you. I bet you could.
What is your daily driver? Don't have one but i'll get onto it - every man needs a chauffeur - quite right.
Anything you listen to at home but not in the car? Currently loving "Imagine Dragons"
Any plans on running Le Mans this year? Absolutely - nothing sorted yet but working with a couple of teams to get into something fast - hope to see you there!
Who is the best formula one driver through the ages in your opinion ? Also why does every answer involving Clarkson have thinking dots...? I love dots - it's morse code for ..--..-.- something... Gilles Villeneuve was the best to watch, by far, but Senna remains the best. It's hard to compare but really when you watch him action and the psychology he brought to the sport, he was unbeatable.
Hello ben! Which do you feel is more fun/realistic Forza or the Gran Turismo series? I can't play Forza - i got stuck on Level One and nearly threw my xbox through the TV! And GT is quite cool but i just don't get it. It still feels arcade like and i end up loading Black Ops II to get some trigger time instead. But i don't live by myself anymore so those days on Xbox Live are Looongg gooone.
What's your favorite automotive website? Link to and Yahoo.
What cars do you own? I've got a van! VW Transporter - yes - i live life on the EDGE!
Why did You start your racing career? I grew up going fast in the back seat of my dad's car and without realising it i was hooked on speed from day 1, so the racing career was a dream come true. It's totally addictive - out of body in a way
Hi Ben -- how hard was it to not break character when shooting scenes as The Stig? It seems like the opportunities for a zingy one-liner are almost endless. Only one man is allowed one liners on TG!
Did you ever get bored of driving the Top Gear track so many times? Never ever got bored of the Top Gear track. There were just too many awesome cars to drive.
How does one learn the basics of drifting and oversteer without access to a rear wheel drive car? How realistic is it? You'd better hire one! Silverstone have a Caterham with low grip tyres which is great for learning. Trying to drift your FWD car could prove painful..!
Hi Ben. How much of your racing ability is concentration? Do you feel that your body knows what to do and almost like you're being driven around by yourself? Basically does raw talent carry you or is it just ball achingly painful to be as good as you on track? It's 100% concentration, so long as your body is fit enough to cope with the G force and the physical abuse of wrangling the controls. That's the part i love most, you lose track of your body completely - it's like breathing - and the whole world is reduced to a flight path and a gut feel. It's never boring! Ok it was once - i did a 24 hour race in a 2CV and you spent 100% of the lap on full throttle. I thought my luck was in when the car got smashed up but they just bent it straight and sent me out again ;)
Hey!! What do you do in your downtime? Its clear you work hard, but also have a young family, it must be hard to keep up with family life while traveling the world driving fast cars? Love skiing and it won't be long before the kids are doing things faster than me!
Hi Ben, you've been away from Facebook and not updated your website news for ages, so what have you been up? Also, are you planning on any more front-of-camera film roles like you had in the Dark Knight Rises? All the best, Fay. Hi Fay, Not as much Facebook but I do tweet over here: Link to
I've been doing some cool stuff like this film for Audi: Link to and as for film stuff the new Spiderman 2 and the new Secret Service Film.
What is your ideal car? Fast enough through a corner to break my neck - would be a different way to check out.
If you had to make the choice between being a professional stunt driver, OR a professional racing driver for the rest of your driving career, which would it be? Such a hard question because they're both so fun. Racing but I'm lucky that I don't have to choose between them IRL.
I know that Mark Webber figured out who you were when He did his lap on Top Gear. But did you ever get the impression that someone else might of figured out who you were as well? Rubens rocks - people knew but for a long time kept the secret. It only started going pear shaped when the Radio Times gave the impression that the BBC were making it an open secret.
I know you work on Automaniak, the Polish tv show, do you have any plans to come to a UK show? You left FifthGear after just a few episodes, but would love to see you on TV again! Wait...Doesn't everyone in the UK watch Polish TV?!
Would love to do some TV in the UK - the Poles are wicked and up for some mad stuff so it reminds me of TG in the early days. Be great to do a UK feature though.
If you could legally change your name to The Stig would you? No! would you?
Are there any American cars you have been excited to drive? Love Corvettes - but the ZR1 was a bit disappointing - i prefer the C6 which was a simpler beast, like me probably. I also drove the Batmobile! That was the best - engineered by the Brits but it had the Corvette engine.
If you could race on ay current F1 team, which would it be and which of the drivers would be your teammate? Red Bull would be fun, and as it's my fantasy team I'd have three. Me, Vettel and Alonso.
During Top Gear - did you have your own influence on the show or just rode the track and that's it? I mean - were you, in your own opinion, somehow a decision person or just the guy to drive the car? I once suggested that we do a feature on Tyres because they made such a big difference to lap times e.g. Pirelli or Bridgestone - and the Boss said "not if you want anybody to watch the show" but i disagree i think people want to be informed about stuff that matters.
I don't remind any TG episode, when you would test tyres, fuels or oils. Any reason for that? I used to come up with ideas, stuff like the stunts and car football was a mix of lots of ideas "from the floor". In the early days it was easier to come up with something and get it to the screen.
So who is helping you with your typing then? :) The lovely people I shot the Audi film with. Though I'm actually managing to answer most of them myself.
Grandma would you type faster for chrissake!
Mr. Collins, I'm a huge fan and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to do this. I read your book recently and it was excellent. What was your favorite segment to film for Top Gear? Also, what has been your favorite driving experience outside of Top Gear? Would you do it all again (Being the Stig) if given the chance? Thank you for logging in! I wouldn't change a thing although with experience i wouldn't make as many mistakes , hopefully.. ! I loved being The Stig, especially the first two years, they were Golden and if you asked the boss Andy Wilman he would almost certainly agree. It was very much a family unit that grew into a commercial beast, but still has some great talent spinning the wheels.
For me the best part was rocking up, getting chucked the keys to something expensive and walking out the TG cabin door onto a cold stretch of tarmac to give it some large around the track. That was great. And terrifying the celebs of course - i did my best to relax them but some folks really [email protected] themselves.
There seem to be some pretty successful drivers currently, in all major racing series, Sebastian Vettel, Jimmie Johnson, Scott Dixon, etc... Who of each major racing series do you feel has the greatest overall natural racing skill? Natural talent is hard to measure and besides it doesn't always trump hard work. Scott Dixon was my team mate in America and he's a huge talent - but Dario Franchitti for me is the maestro! He's incredible in Indycar and i'm wishing him a speedy recovery because he's currently in hospital after a big hit yesterday. He's also the nicest guy you could meet in this business - top man.
Besides a Tag Heuer, which other watches do you own? Omega Seamaster, and a Bremont.
This also reminds me to read your book again, seriously motivational. Thanks! Give it another read, it's even more fun the second time around.
What's your relationship like with the presenters? Also in real life are they the same as they appear on tv? I think someone needs to tell them when the cameras aren't rolling! They are turning into caricatures of themselves, its hilarious
Stig-san, would you say your military training had anything to do with making you a decent driver? Does that help with the psychological side of fast driving? And is the Scuderia that much better to drive than a 458? SO many questions for you, but those are top of the list. The time i spent in the army had more influence on my outlook than anything else i've done and affected my whole approach to life, so it certainly helps with racing. You learn never to quit and to break through self imposed limits, which in the end aren't real.
Favorite driving music or road trip songs/albums? When I'm not learning a new language... (jk) I'm addicted to Leftfield and Massive Attack, but then I would say that. I'm from Bristol.
What are your thoughts about next year engine change in F1? Should be interesting! I'm sure it will be plus ca change, plus c'est le meme.
Loving F1 at the moment but i wish it was on BBC still so i could actually watch it.
Sorry, Im making the most of this though, probably won't get the chance to ask these again!! - favourite food/drinks - what music genre you into? - whats your favourite film you have worked on? - do you have any pets? - did you design your own Reddit Stig?! very impressed with that!! Some say he uses Adobe Photo Shop in his spare time.. but mostly that was my friend Tiffany who has always wanted to create an Alien Stig that slightly resembles a penguin.
Batman Dark Knight Rises was a heap of fun to make because we raced Batmobiles down Wall Street and ran riot.
Had you tested cars only on tracks or also in normal conditions (roads)? How often TopGear stuff had some troubles with police? Did police close roads for filming? The Police were always really helpful. We filmed the Bugatti in East London and just when i thought we were about to be arrested the word came through from the cop who had said "make sure he gives it some". They helped us contain the area so it was safe etc.
Who is the most talented F1 driver currently? Not sure - is it Alonso ? He's 110% everywhere and can overtake. But Vettel is mega and no denying. Let's see how Raikonnen goes next year.
Do you really have 600 testicles? Were any of the things they said on the show true ? Yes - i carry them like scalps in my leather satchel from every driver that ever hogged the middle lane on the M4. And probably not.
Hi Ben, thanks for doing this session and for being fun with it! BTCC needs a bit of a shake up - it's way too expensive and i wish the cars had a bit more power being honest, like Aussie V8. That said the racing is superb and it's pure.
How realistic would it be for a young person (24) to end up into a race series such as BTCC? What kind of motor racing would you suggest pursuing to end up at that main goal? Unless you're minted - if you want to get into racing i would look at something like 'Legends' where you can race wheel to wheel without costing an arm and a leg.
Hi Ben, huge fan! Off cam, how was your chemistry with the top gear gang? You seem like you really click with the 5th gear guys but did the whole stig thing isolate you a bit or make you feel secondary? Thanks! At first i thought it would be hard to gel with anybody from behind a mask and sitting in a small red bricked hut, by myself. In reality everyone was up for a laugh and filming Top Gear is such a good time that you can't help but get on. The crew really set the tone, the magicians wielding the cameras - and their banter was just as vital to the off cam chemistry.
Is it true that you like Genesis? You mean uncle Phil ? o'course
Have you had a chance to drive the new Lamborghini Sesto Elemento? No, it's a sore point.
What was your initial thoughts on the reaction to the reveal that you are the Stig? It felt like falling down an elevator shaft. 8 years of one mindset is hard to break and it felt really uncomfortable people suddenly knowing who i was - but it was absolutely fantastic at the same time because so many people had such a positive affinity with the character.
Did you ever get injured in Top Gear? And as a stunt driver? I broke four ribs racing but nothing with TV and thankfully nothing so far with the movies either. Long may it continue!
Ok , any car, money no object, ...which is the fav daily driver, which is the fav toy and which the fav vintage ? I'd be driving down the high street in a Formula One car towing a two-storey trailer (for the fuel and the jacuzzi)
Toy i'd like a Renault 5 Turbo 2 doubles as Vintage - but maybe throw in a Lancia Delta Integrale.
Being a professional driver you've probably experienced a few crashes. Have you ever been in any bad ones and if so how did it affect you afterwards? Yes - it affects the way you walk mostly! If you can still drive then you crack on and the adrenaline works its magic, but i can't say i felt affected by any accidents.
Opinion on the Reliant Robin? Link to
It's a fun funny car!
So where in the world are you right now? working on what? In Bristol! Typing!
Jeremy, james or hammond ? :) Context? Is this a Lord of the flies scenario?
What is your favorite road to drive? M32. Southbound.
Why that specific road? Best road is probably the Fluela Pass in Switzerland, or the highlands in Scotland - stunning.
Favorite Car? The time i spent in the army had more influence on my outlook than anything else i've done and affected my whole approach to life, so it certainly helps with racing. You learn never to quit and to break through self imposed limits, which in the end aren't real.
Whoops! Ferrari 458.
What do you think about the Grand-Am - ALMS merger? I hate it. It's going to be interesting to see how that shapes up...
I guess I am wondering, is this being mocked elsewhere? Grand Am's DPs are a joke among the ALMS community, and being NASCAR owned we feel it is going to be a scripted shit show. I am curious what the buzz is from a driver's stand point, on the whole series? Grand Am DP is a huge success racing wise and NASCAR makes the show go round so you have to admire what they built. There's some big brains working on how to make them run alongside P2 but my money will be on the LMPC / Formula Le Mans cars being the formula to race in next year.

2013.08.27 01:17 dragonsky Bond Of The Week: Daniel Craig

The last thread in our "Bond Of The Week" series. In this series we've talked about the 5 (official) actors that played Bond and the time has come for us to talk about the current 007. Mr. Daniel Craig.
After Brosnan left, MGM had to find a new Bond. The rumours were flying around as many names were in the mix of becoming a new James Bond. In the end the guy who will be the Bond of the 21st century turned out to be Ben wait that's not right..... who put this in my script.... just let me find the real thing.....oh yeah that's right. The Bond of the 21st century, the Bond of the next generation turned out to be non other than Daniel Craig. The blond haired Englishman got the role of the most famous agent of all time. But as every decision in Hollywood, Craig immediately got many haters. Many people were against the idea of having a blonde actor portraying Bond. "His name is James Bond not James Blonde FFS!", said some people disapproving MGM's decision. Some even made a anti-Craig-as-007 site.
In the end the decision turned out to be final and we got our next Bond in the name of Daniel Craig. But who is Daniel Craig ?
Daniel Craig was born on March 2, 1968, in Chester, England. He moved to London when he was 16 to join the National Youth Theatre. His film debut was in The Power of One and he featured in the BAFTA-winning BBC miniseries Our Friends in the North. Craig worked with Steven Spielberg on the film,Munich and in 2006 he took on the role of James Bond in Casino Royale and reinvigorated the franchise.
Craig grew up near Liverpool, and enjoyed going to the theater with his mother and sisters. Many of his mother's friends were actors, and he felt drawn to the profession. "I kind of fell in love with the idea of acting... I liked the idea of it—you know, shouting a lot and dressing up and all that," Craig told Interview magazine.
Craig moved to London when he was 16 to join the National Youth Theatre, and then studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After graduating, Craig made his film debut in The Power of One (1992), a 1950s drama set in South Africa. His career then received a substantial boost with his role in the 1996 BBC miniseries Our Friends in the North. The serial drama experienced great critical reception, and won several major awards in the year following its broadcast, including two British Academy Television Awards, four Royal Television Society Awards and two Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.
Another important role came in 1998 with the film Love Is The Devil a biopic about the artist Francis Bacon (played by Derek Jacobi). Craig co-starred as Bacon's lover George Dyer, a small-time thief. Craig later described the project as "the first film I did that 'made me.'" That same year, Craig had a small role in the historical drama Elizabeth starring Cate Blanchett.
In 2001, Craig appeared as the romantic interest to Angelina Jolie's character in the action film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider based on the popular video game. Although the film was panned by reviewers, the movie was a hit with viewers—Tomb Raider debuted at No.1 at the box office, and became the highest-grossing video game adaptation to date. Craig then gave an impressive performance in 2002's Road to Perdition, a film adapted from the popular graphic novel of the same name. In the film, Craig played Connor Rooney, the murderous son of a mob boss (played by Paul Newman). The actor's stand-out performance was lauded by critics and fans alike. He then demonstrated his range as an actor when he starred as poet Ted Hughes in the drama Sylvia (2003), which also starred Gwyneth Paltrow. The film explored the life of Hughes's wife, poet Sylvia Plath, and the couple's troubled relationship.
Craig's made his debut as a leading man playing an unnamed character—called XXXX in the credits—in the 2005 crime drama Layer Cake. In the film, Craig played a sophisticated drug dealer who seeks to retire from his criminal enterprise.
That same year, Craig got a chance to work with famed director Steven Spielberg in his epic film, Munich (2005). In the film, Craig played an Israeli agent working on a team charged with tracking down those responsible for the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich.
Around this time, rumors had begun to swirl about Craig becoming the next actor to play the role of legendary spy James Bond. Fans, who were used to previous Bonds played by actors such as Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan, objected to having Craig in the part. Many fans felt he was too blond or too old. Film critics believed that, for a serious stage-trained actor like Craig, playing Bond would be an ill-advised move. But Craig believed it was a great opportunity, agreeing to a five-film contract. "When I accepted the job to work on Bond, I genuinely did it to change my life. I knew that it would flip everything on its head... I've never made movies for money—I've always made them because I truly wanted to do them," he explained to Interview magazine.
Proving the skeptics wrong, made Bond history with 2006's Casino Royale. He helped reinvigorate the long-running film franchise with his modern take on Bond, described by one critic as "a noble thug." Casino Royale became the highest-grossing Bond film to date, earning $594 million worldwide. Craig starred as 007 in the next installment, Quantum of Solace in 2008, another box-office hit, followed by the 2012 Bond blockbuster Skyfall.
Once romantically linked to Sienna Miller and Kate Moss, Craig has been dated producer Satsuki Mitchell for several years. He has a daughter from a previous relationship. In December 2010, Craig began dating actress Rachel Weisz, his costar in the horror film Dream House. The couple married in June 2011 in New York.
Craig is scheduled to appear in at least 2 more Bond movies and couple of movies were the blue-eyed actor will be part of more serious roles, but there is no doubt that he will always be remembered as Bond. James Bond.
P.S. I hope that you enjoyed this series.
