Follow TV Tropes
Another new take on Peter Pan is on the horizon, and it's from the mind behind Beasts of the Southern Wild.
After watching You Might Be the Killer I feel like meta, self-aware slasher films are more played out than regular slasher films. If I hear one more character explain the final girl trope like it's a novel idea I'm going to scream.
Meta, self-aware humor in general is played out these days.
It's the same thing as "intentionally bad" movies like Sharknado: It's just an excuse to not bother putting any real effort into your writing.
"It's not cliché and boring if I point out how cliché and boring it is! I'm so clever."

Speaking of meta humor...
Phil Lord & Chris Miller are teaming up with the directors of Ready or Not for what is being described as "a unique bear-driven horror-comedy — with heart."
Plus, the script was pitched to Universal as Good Boys meets The Revenant.

I could go for another Indiana Jones movie. It can even have commies and aliens again. But it can't have Mutt or terrible CGI.
I don't think it will have Mutt again.
I had zero issues with him, but people aren't too big on Shia Leboeuf so I think Mutt is done.
Even in universe, Indy snatched his hat away before the former could put it on.
Anyway, Mutt's done. Though I wonder if Lucas wants to try again. He got torn up over Crystal Skull too didn't he? Maybe he's just gonna hand that over to Disney as well since he seems done with the fans.

Oh dear God no, they'll fuck it up worse than Lucas. Get Lord & Miller on it.
So, there's apparently a sequel to A Quiet Place.
Was there a thread for it?
I watched 1917, it was an interesting technical exercise in its illusion at one extended long take and had some absolutely gorgeous visuals but otherwise I wouldn't say it was a film that merits multiple rewatches.
It had a very good take on its depiction of the war narrative, which does elevate it for its approach on the antagonists and its sound design made it even better.
Actually, yes, there IS a thread for A Quiet Place.
The new Call of the Wild film looks disappointing. It looks like a good film, but it's not Call of the Wild. It's too human-focused.
Not sure if this is the best spot for this:
Suddenly a movie version of Hamilton?
Apparently, Disney will be releasing a movie version of Hamilton with the original cast and filmed "onstage at The Richard Rodgers Theatre." (Not sure what this means, maybe they're filming it on a stage instead of using sets and locations like a normal movie?)
And we have to wait for it (see what I did there?) until October 15, 2021.
I'd prefer home releases of the play, like how Cats had one in the 1990s. More plays need them.
A Hamilton film sounds easy. It's just odd that it happened so quickly. I have heard Wicked is waiting for ticket sales to dip before releasing its film.

I find it hilarious that the Disney press release uses so many buzz words to obscure what it really is: just a filmed showing of Hamilton.
Audiences: "You could've just said: 'cheaper tickets than Broadway and better HD than the Youtube rips'."

Over 20 years have passed. But now....
Someobody fucked with da Jesus again.
What would happen if a Facehugger impregnated a person completely overtaken by The Thing? Who would overwrite who?
A lone facehugger wouldn't stand a chance,The Thing would absorb it completely I think
Either that, or we'd get a No one comes to Lupusville situation:
The Stargirl movie is coming out and... it's a Disney+ exclusive. Aw. I was hoping for a big-budget film. It looks more like a generic rom-com than the book too.
Just saw Emma - that is a very good adaptation of the source material.

Hey, so, was anyone looking forward to Guns Akimbo, a movie where Daniel Radcliffe plays a schlub who gets guns (literally) nailed to his hands and must fight for his life?
You may want to reconsider it, because a Twitter DM made by the movie's director leaked and...let's just say he said some less than kind things.
Apparently the director said the N word. That's all I'm going to say.
Basically several women reviewers called out the director and another reviewer for using the n-word and he started spreading tweets accusing them of provoking suicide.

How well does it match the trope?
