When You Coming Home, Dad?
I checked out the page of that trope and I was surprised to see there wasn’t mention any mention how it was a stock plot in kid’s film (especially in the 90s).
There’s no Annihilation thread, but I watched it
Interesting to say the least
Does anyone think that the streaming services should start adding extras like commentary tracks to some of the films (at least the ones that have tracks recorded)? Shout Factory TV and Simpsons World are the only ones I know that have done this
Shudder does it. I agree that it should be more commonplace.
A new The Banana Splits film's coming out, though it's a drastic shift from the comedic sketch show that it originally was. Now it's a horror film, in the vain of Five Nights at Freddy's, with writing reminiscent of the 90s through early 2000s "self-aware" adaptations of old 60s properties.

So, for shits and giggles, I've been re-watching clips of The Monster Squad.
Man, that final fight was crazy. We got dead (vampire)girls, in the street, another dead man (who was a Werewolf), the corpse of Gillman, along with multiple injured and possible dead cops, and a buttload of witnesses to monsters rampaging in the streets and a wormhole opening up.
And thank god for that, otherwise those kids would have a shitload of explaining to do. Though since the army actually showed up (how does that even work) and one of the witnesses is the main character's Cop dad (who can attest to seeing both Dracula and the Werewolf), they will be able to prove this was all for real.
Being Wolfman is suffering. Poor dude just wanted nothing to do with all of it. When you're happiest moment is the few seconds before death (where you thank the person who killed you with your dying breath), you know you're suffering. That being said, Monster Squad Wolfman is damn powerful, since he literally can't be killed by anything that's not Silver, as shown by him reassembling himself after getting blown up by dynamite.
Also, Sean's dad might be a Bad Ass. He comes out of nowhere in his car, and shoots Dracula out of the air, while the latter is a bat (a small target) in the dark, with a handgun. That's a pretty crazy shot. And then he's got a stick of dynamite and a Pre-Asskicking One-Liner ready to finish it (though considering how rigid the rules about killing monsters were, it likely wouldn't have worked) and only gets stomped by the wolf man...who gets the stick of dynamite instead.
Rudy is the MVP: 2 vampire women, the Wolfman, and I believe he took out the Mummyman earlier, though I can't find clips of that and only know it from youtube comments. Kid should be proud.
So that's me remembering the monster squad. Still a fun movie after over 30 years.
Wolf man's god nards. Wolf man's got nards.
I kinda want to see an action movie where the main hero actually breaks down and crying his out at the end, due to all the physical and emotional stress he suffered through the movie.
The only one I can think of is First Blood, the very first Rambo movie.
Relive the jungle...
Relive the madness...
Relive the Apocalypse...in IMAX.
TL;DW: Francis Ford Coppola has made a brand new cut of one of the greatest (if nightmarishly hard to film) movies ever:
APOCALYPSE NOW: FINAL CUT
Longer than the original cut, but shorter than the Redux Cut, this is looking like the one cut of Apocalypse Now to see if you have to watch one cut at all.

Looks like CBS and Viacom are almost reunited.
Is it the right place?
Sure. I don't see why not put it here.
JJ Abrams' Bad Robot Productions has signed a spicy overall deal with Warner Bros. for films and television series, beating Disney, Universal and Sony Pictures, lasting until 2024.
In unrelated news, Walt Disney Studios teams up with Microsoft to make movies in the Azure cloud platform.
NBCUniversal's streaming service is named Peacock, has a very interesting line-up and is targeting an April 2020 release (wasn't expecting it that soon).

Norman Lear continues his deal with Sony and his career is chronicled, as well as some recent stuff and some people commenting about him.
Does Norman Lear really wants to live forever or what? He's 97! I'm amazed!
Is it just me or is it dark in here?

I just watched Ad Astra and it was nice. I want to see more spectacular American films that are not sequels or reboots to existing franchises.

I want to watch a new kung-fu tournament movie, like Enter the Dragon. Just get all the best martial artists in Hollywood right now and have them fight each other for two hours.
We’re getting a Mortal Kombat remake, and I’m genuinely curious how that’s going to look in a post UFC world.
The John Wick franchise has shades of it. Particularly the last installment Chapter 3: Parabellum which had Keanu Reeves (proud martial artist and movie martial artist) fight against martial artists/stuntmen Tiger Chen (from the Matrix movies and Man of Tai Chi), Ruhian and Rahman (the legendary Indonesian martial artits from the Raid series), Mark Dascascos (from Brotherhood of the Wolf and Drive) and plus fights basketball player Boban Marjanovic in a direct reference to Bruce Lee vs Kareem-Abdul Jabar.
With all the talk recently over what’s cinema and what isn’t, what in your opinion, do you think of the future of the classic moviegoing experience in the theatre? Go to a theatre filled with people, pay $20USD for soda and snacks, occasionally run out to the bathroom, etc. Is it the ideal way to experience a film, something we feel nostalgic for because of tradition, or just something out of date and not an essential part of the moviegoing experience?
I think it's a cool experience but not necessarily mandatory for enjoying movies. I very rarely pay to see films in the cinema nowadays. The last time I did that was for IT Part One.
Ideally theaters have better sound and visual systems so cinemas do have something substantial to offer
No kidding. So it was Neo vs Eric Advent Master Draven huh?
That must have been a hell of a fight.
Netflix is testing playback speed options ala youtube and every DVD player of the last decade, and some major film industry people are throwing fits over it for reasons I honestly can't comprehend.
”It’s my art and it was meant to be seen this way”.
This is a hill to die on?

It's like being mad about a fast-forward feature, honestly.
