STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE (Gareth Edwards, 2016) - Page 25

post #1201 of 4021

By the way, there is a direct reference to The Birds in the film. Bird attacking dude in a window, in San Franscisco.

I must've been asleep!
post #1203 of 4021
I saw "Godzilla" once, thought it was fine and moved on with my life.

I apparently haven't lived.
post #1204 of 4021
Make your film Brad! Do us proud!
post #1205 of 4021

I only saw it once too. 

post #1206 of 4021

Never mind the first trailer, but do you think they shot themselves in the foot when they hired Bryan Cranston to play a side-character?

 

Like if he wasn't in the movie at all, you think people would have been kinder to Godzilla 2014?

post #1207 of 4021
I've probably only seen it once in full too.

It's hard to get through again. I just sleep.

If Cranston's character wasn't it in, it would probably have been even more dull because there would be no 'in' during all the setup.

I'm more of a King Kong guy, TBH. I can identify with his relationship woes.
post #1209 of 4021
Kong is a NICE GUY

I do like that Dullzilla is like Bart's pet elephant, Stampy. Just some jerk.
post #1210 of 4021
Does Godzilla even date? Or is he too shy?
post #1211 of 4021
He just hangs out at home with his cat.
post #1212 of 4021
Ha, what a lame--

Wait, that's what I do!

ehehehehe

The movie's sleep factor is up there with Superman Returns.

One could spend years debating the many reasons Godzilla infects everything at CHUD, but the most likely reason is its all my fault.

The second most likely reason is because that movie is awesome!

I take blame as well.

And the movie is disappointing!
post #1218 of 4021

Would it have been better if Cranston was mo-capping Godzilla? 

 

"SAY MY NAME"

"I'M THE ONE THAT KNOCKS DOWN BUILDINGS"

 

Steps on a church. 

post #1219 of 4021
I dunno... Im baffled and disturbed by the idea of studios showing so much behind the scenes material before a movie is even released. These franchise films are the few that can afford to ease off the hype trigger since nobody is going to skip Star Wars. Soderbergh once lamented this "you'd think they'd spend less marketing money since nobody on the planet doesn't know Iron Man 3 is coming out. But they spend even more."

Maybe its the idea of Star Wars being the last franchise with any shred of magic about it that has me in a funk that its becoming another quarterly check box on a studio's release schedule. Lots of passion coming from the filmmakers, but that happens with any film.

What is it with some of the junk that goes on around here HAHAHAHA?

I swear....the people that DISlike a movie have usually seen it more times than the people who DO like it.

"I watched Godzilla once and I loved it!"

"Well *adjusts glasses* I'VE seen it three times and I hated it every time so I think I know what I'm talking about when I say that you're wrong to love it."

So strange!

Hey, get that back into the dating thread!
post #1224 of 4021

Guys, you're missing this thread's biggest revelation.  Will Ana Karenina vs Godzilla be the next Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

post #1225 of 4021

A pretty solid version of the little teaser shown at Celebration is floating around. If nothing else, this film LOOKS spectacular.   The money shot of Vader at the end of the teaser is going to be flat-out breathtaking in full quality.

post #1226 of 4021

I love it when threads turn into other threads from 2 years ago. 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh wait, no I don't.

post #1227 of 4021

I doooooooo!

 

(so sorry)

I could barely see what the shot was. But then I heard the heavy breathing. 

 

It'll be interesting hearing James Earl Jones as Darth Vader again. I know he did a couple of episodes from that animated series, but it didn't sound exactly like the version I'm used to hearing from the OT. To see him interact again the goings-on in live action is kind of cool.

post #1229 of 4021

I think part of that difference is simply that Jones has aged quite a bit since the OT, but it will be very cool to hear him.

 

Also, Gareth Edwards shoots down the rumor that Han Solo would make a cameo:

Good.

ohohohohohoh

 

fun stuff to be further confirmed in light of all the talk of how WB/DC handled Swiss-side-Sqwab!

What exactly did he do to strengthen Godzilla?

I have a bad fee - well, you know.

post #1234 of 4021
While basic reshoots is normal, 5 weeks of reshoots is definitely not normal. They must have reshot a huge chunk of the movie which means they didn't like what Edwards did, which doesnt surprise me since Godzilla was wafer thin on engagement and Monsters was more of a visual fx showcase than anything else. I questioned his hiring from the beginning and now I know why.
post #1235 of 4021

Poor Gareth Edwards. This has really turned into such a public humiliation for him. It's like not being able to satisfy your wife, and so someone else has to come in and satisfy her, but lots of people on the internet find out and, before long, you're sitting in the recreational room at work with nearby co-workers whispering about how another guy has to satisfy your wife, and you're forced to sit there smiling whilst eating your ham (but no mayonnaise) sandwiches. 

 

I put a lot of thought into this metaphor. 

post #1236 of 4021
I sort of feel like Edwards at my job.
post #1237 of 4021

The ham (no mayo) sandwiches really hit home.

post #1238 of 4021
Who puts mayo on a ham sandwich? Butter and Swiss cheese is the only way to go.
post #1239 of 4021
Butter??
post #1240 of 4021

I don't put mayo on anything. Mayo is disgusting.

 

Maybe Edwards didn't deliver. But one of the comments in there from a source is that the reshoots and Gilroy taking over had a lot to do with mitigating a "dark tone."

 

Fuck that.

Didn't he say that he had an initial idea of the rebel stuff being "cinema verite" style, while the Imperial stuff was stylised as per the OT.  And that while this was a nice idea, they worked out in editing that it didn't work at all.  

 

Hence possible extended reshoots if they're redoing all the Imperial stuff.

post #1243 of 4021

Also, mayo on ham sandwiches is the only way to go.

post #1244 of 4021
I'm assuming with the butter that you cook it like a grilled cheese then?

Cuz that does sound pretty good the more I think about it..

It works cold too. But yes, grilled ham & Swiss is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.
post #1246 of 4021

So, instead of the rebel crew dying in the mission to get the Death Star plans, now they all survive, do a leaping group high-five at the end, and say in unison "See you in the Expanded Universe!"?

 

The Hollywood Reporter article paints the picture with gentle words, but having a studio mandated Tony Gilroy muscle into your editing room, where all the final decisions are made, is no small thing. That's the kind of thing that made Stephen Norrington quit Hollywood after League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

From the trailer (before reshoots I believe) everything seemed stylized. Cinema verite implies a documentary style (handheld usually, off the cuff dialogue, spontaneity), and none of that seemed to come through in the trailer during the rebel sequences. Maybe an early idea that was dropped?

Either way even if it was filmed verite and changed during reshoots it still doesn't explain why Gilroy is in the editing room. The only reason to have a third party in the editing room is when they don't trust the director. And that combo obviously worked wonders for Godzilla, right? The only exception is Marvel always in the editing room but that's because they're practically doing big budget TV shows and Feigi is the show runner.

this is why we get along!

 

Saying that the film would be 'verite' seemed like a buzzword they tossed in at the time.  It just seems like a fancy way of saying "we're trying to make it feel a bit different from jaja abrams star war".  It won't be AS slick or AS colorful!  It will be a big grittier!  More serious!

The trailers and soundtracks are now part of the movie going experience. 

 

The Iron Man 3 trailers setting up the Mandarin fake out really added to my enjoyment of the actual movie, for example. 


The behind the scenes stuff however is over done. Why remove all mystery from the movie and the actors before release? I suspect that's why Movie Stars as an automatic Ass In Seat phenomenon had gone away. Stars aren't allowed to be mysterious anymore. They have to be out front and center promoting the movie, "revealing" their "true selves". 

 

Oh and you put Mayo on a Bologna sandwich, you put mustard on a ham sandwich. Everyone knows this.
