A 16 year old virgin with a growth hormone deficiency slowly gets corrupted by his hero, an aimless college dropout.
Directed by Jason Orley. Starring Pete Davidson and Griffin Gluck.

Triple Frontier
The cast for this Netflix action thriller is awesome. If the trailer and director is anything to go by though, this looks really promising.

Directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call). Starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam and Pedro Pascal.

I hope this is amazing, but the premise sounds incredibly difficult to pull off. Good cast and director, so fingers crossed. I'm using the book description here.

Directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow). Starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.

The Rosie Project
Few details are out. Ryan Reynolds, based on a good book.

Directed by Ben Taylor. Starring Ryan Reynolds.

The Beach Bum
The trailer looks completely wack. Make sure you watch it:
An irreverent comedy about the misadventures of Moondog, a rebellious stoner and lovable rogue who lives large.
Directed by Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers). Starring Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Zac Efron and Isla Fisher.

I don't know much about this one, but the director previously made Snowpiercer, Okja and my favourite, Memories of Murder. I'm excited.

Directed by Bong Joon-Ho. Starring Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Jo Yeo-jeong and Choi Woo-shik.

This one comes from nowhere. An indie sci-fi with with an interesting plot, and good Sundance reviews.

Directed by Grant Sputore. Starring Hillary Swank , Clara Rugaard-Larsen and Rose Byrne.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
You’ve more than likely heard of this one. Ted Bundy film starring Zac Efron. I’m not sure how excited I am for the film, but Efron’s performance is apparently very good.
A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.
Directed by Joe Berlinger. Starring Lily Collins, Zac Efron and John Malkovich.

The Nightingale
The second film from the director of the Babadook. Really promising (and slightly divisive) reviews out of Sundance. Fun fact: you can kinda measure the divisiveness of a film on RT by comparing the percentage meter with the average rating. If the percentage is high but the average rating is low, it shows that the film is all-round solid and inoffensive. If the percentage rating is lower but the average rating is still high/moderate, it means there’s a large gap between those who loved and didn’t like it. Anyway, back to the Nightingale. I’m excited - doubly so since it’s an Aussie film.
In 1829, Claire, a 21-year-old Irish convict, chases a British soldier through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. She enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
Directed by Jennifer Kent. Starring Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Damon Herriman and Ewen Leslie.

The Dead Don't Die
Another awesome cast, definitely one to look forward to. The plot summary isn’t out, but it’s a comedy zombie flick.
Directed by Jim Jarmusch. Starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, Austin Butler, Steve Buscemi and Tilda Swinton.

Tilda Swinton seems to be working a lot, woah.
Memoria revolves around a character (portrayed by Tilda Swinton) who suffers from exploding head syndrome, a psychological condition in which a person experiences loud noises when falling asleep or waking up.
Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Starring Tilda Swinton and Jeanne Balibar.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
The trailer for this, particularly the music, wasn’t good. The content of the trailer shows a lot of potential though, and the book is apparently really good. Also: Richard Linklater.
When architect-turned-recluse Bernadette Fox goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica, her 15-year-old daughter Bee goes on a quest with Bernadette’s husband to find her.
Directed by Richard Linklater. Starring Cate Blanchett ,Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer and Laurence Fishburne.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Tom Hanks seems made for this role. Should be good.
The story of Fred Rogers, the honored host and creator of the popular children’s television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (1968).
Directed by Marielle Heller. Starring Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys and Chris Cooper.

High Flying Bird
I’ll make this quick: Excellent reviews so far. Netflix in Feb. Steven Soderbergh. Shot on an iPhone. Moonlight writer.
During an NBA lockout, a sports agent, Dean, presents his rookie client, Erick Scott, with an intriguing and controversial business opportunity.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s 11). Starring André Holland Zazie Beetz Jeryl Prescott Kyle MacLachlan Caleb McLaughlin Zachary Quinto.

The Cradle
I don’t know much about this one but the plot intrigues me. For some reason it reminds me of Denis Villeneuve's early film, Incendies (if you haven’t watched yet, make it your next film - it’s incredible.)
A young couple not ready to expect their first baby track down a cradle, only to make a discovery that will change their family forever.
Directed by Hope Dickson Leach. Starring Jack O'Connell and Lily Collins.

The Woman in the Window
A Rear Window-esque movie with a great cast and director. Really hoping this is great, cos I love these kind of plots.
An agoraphobic woman living alone in New York begins spying on her new neighbors only to witness a disturbing act of violence.
Directed by Joe Wright. Starring Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore and Wyatt Russell.

Gemini Man
The plot is crazy, but the cast and director can definitely pull it off.
Henry Brogen, an aging assassin tries to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities.
Directed by Ang Lee. Starring Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco
Yet another film with great reviews from Sundance.
Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind.
Directed by Joe Talbot. Starring Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan and Tichina Arnold.

Blinded by the Light
Sundance musta been real great this year, cos once again we have another movie with good reviews out of it. Apparently wholesome and inspiring.
In 1987, during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, a teenager learns to live life, understand his family, and find his own voice through the music of Bruce Springsteen.
Directed by Gurinder Chadha. Starring Viveik Kalra, Nell William and Hayley Atwell.

Before You Know It
Good reviews. Sundance. Family comedy.
A long-kept family secret thrusts codependent, thirty-something sisters Rachel and Jackie Gurner into a literal soap opera. A journey that proves that you really can come of age, at any age.
Directed by Hannah Pearl Utt. Starring Hannah Pearl Utt, Jen Tullock and Judith Light.

Little Monsters
A washed-up musician teams up with a teacher and a kids show personality to protect young children from a sudden outbreak of zombies.
Directed by Abe Forsythe. Starring Lupita Nyong'o, Josh Gad, Alexander England and Nadia Townsend.

Jojo Rabbit
I'll watch anything Taika makes, but this looks insane - one of my most hyped. (I accidentally deleted this from the list while editing!!)
Jojo Rabbit is about a young boy living during World War II. His only escapism is through his imaginary friend, an ethnically inaccurate version of Adolf Hitler, who pushes the young boy’s naive patriotic beliefs. However, this all changes when a young girl challenges those views and causes Jojo to face his own issues.
Directed by Taiki Watiti. Starring Taiki Watiti (as Adolf Hitler), Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson and Alfie Allen.

The Lodge
A spoopy film that was well received at Sundance.
Two siblings spend the night alone with their new stepmother. Stuck in a remote mountain cabin, the trio are terrorised by a supernatural force.
Directed by Veronika Franz, Severin Fiala. Starring Riley Keough, Jaeden Lieberher and Lia McHugh.

World War I film. Plot unknown.
Directed by Sam Mendes. Cinematography by Roger Deakins.

Dragged Across Concrete
Two policemen, one an old-timer, the other his volatile younger partner, find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics becomes the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.
Directed by S. Craig Zahler. Starring Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Don Johnson and Jennifer Carpenter.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things
A Charlie Kaufman film, set for Netflix.
An unexpected detour causes a woman who is trying to figure out how to break up with her boyfriend to rethink her life.
Directed by Charlie Kaufman. Starring Brie Larson and Jesse Plemons.

My thoughts

Feel free to ignore lol
After finally managing to finish this compilation, reading plots and wikis and watching trailers, I cannot believe how many good films there are coming out. This is reminding me of 2017, when I made a similar post - and 2017 was an absolutely amazing year overall, especially in light of the relative disappointment of 2018. There’s just so much promise in every category - horror, thriller, biopics, drama, action, comedy… and if you count zombie films as a genre unto themselves, then yeah, that too.
Of course, I cannot wait for Tarantino’s flick. But after that it’s hard to pick ordered favourites - Knives Out, The Dead Don’t Die, Us, The Report and Luce are films I cannot wait for, but there are so many others I’m pumped for - and I haven’t even gone into the blockbusters.

Speaking of…
For the franchise and sequel films, I haven’t gone to the effort of adding plot and cast details. They’re huge, you’ll hear all about them anyway.

Franchise/Sequel/Remake films

Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Star Wars: Episode IX
Zombieland 2: Double Tap
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
Avengers: Endgame
Captain Marvel
Toy Story 4
It: Chapter Two
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum
Spider-Man: Far from Home
Lion King
The New Mutants
Alita: Battle Angel
Dark Phoenix
Men in Black International
Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw
Artemis Fowl
Charlie’s Angels
Kingsman 3
Sonic the Hedgehog
Frozen 2

I’m genuinely delirious. I told myself I would get this post done before I went to sleep and I am now totally exhausted. There were far more movies than I anticipated. This year is ridiculous and it has been mean to me. Of course, if I missed anything let me know and I’ll add it once I’ve woken up!
Oh, and if you want to follow me on Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/xaviertobin/
Hope you enjoy! :)

2018.03.05 23:14 WhiteArrow76 [S6] Review - Strengths and Weaknesses

Well, this season of Arrow has definitely been a game changer, as now the Emerald Archer finds himself in an incredibly tight spot with everything out on the line. Yeah, he's found himself in tight spots before, but now the threat that he is facing hits a bit closer to home.
Up to this point (6x01-6x14) this has proven to be an exceptionally intense season, very well though out and planned. The major difference I've seen with this season in comparison with its five predecessors is that in the past, seasons have unfolded as series of shorter story arcs, which either interconnect or overlap as the stories progress towards the final confrontation of the season (as I've noted before, kind of like the different levels of Super Mario Bros). However, in this season, what we're seeing is that in place of the smaller arcs involving lower level villains or character background stories is the consolidation of all the storylines running this season into one GIANT arc which spans the full length of the season (and possibly beyond).
Last summer, Steve Amell noted to several sources that the major shift in how this season was going to play out was that they would be 'taking it slow' to allow for more depth in both the stories and the characters to be drawn out. At the same time, he noted that the show's direction this season was to be exceptionally dark and gritty.
On the upside, we have seen some interesting developments. In the past five years we've seen the writers put Oliver's character through a barrage of trials and tests, and Steve Amell has yet to fail us in his deliverance of what many critics have described as a genuinely heroic figure, in spite of all he setbacks and losses he has suffered. With this season, we started things out with Oliver adjusting to being a single father to a son he barely knew, as with the conclusion of Season 5 among the casualties of Adrian Chase's detonation of Lian Yu was William's mother, Samantha Clayton. He is almost immediately blindsided by his exposure as the Green Arrow by a photo almost immediately proven to be fake, followed by the FBI investigation, his subsequent arrest, and the revelation that one of his own has betrayed him.
On a lighter note, we do see an interesting family dynamic forming as the season progresses, as over time Oliver and William start to bond, beginning with the brief hiatus Oliver took from being the Green Arrow while being investigated. At the same time, one of the main highlights of the season has been the reincarnation of Oliver's relationship with Felicity, which starts out slow before taking a giant leap ahead towards the end of the epic crossover episode when Oliver and Felicity are (FINALLY) married alongside Barry and Iris in a civil ceremony officiated by none other than John Diggle.
At the same time, based on what Steve Amell noted during the summer, this season we've seen a different side of Oliver, being a bit more level headed and more mature. What I probably admire the most about not only Oliver's character and how well Amell fits the role is his dedication to not only Star City, but to his team and his family as well. This season, with his perspective as a father seemingly balancing his focus a bit more, he's more willing and able to make those tough stances, both in fighting as the Green Arrow and acting as mayor. We've seen him owe up to his missteps, take responsibility for his actions and face whatever darkness has come at him head on.
We've also seen big changes in many other main characters, notably Felicity, John and Thea. Felicity has really shown her true colors this season by standing by Oliver as he braves a rather nasty storm, but what really caught me off guard was at the end of the crossover episode how when seeing how much Oliver needed her, she asked him to marry her right there on the spot, no drama, no fuss. At the same time, we also got to see early on William and Felicity starting to bond (which kinda gave a hint at what was to come a.k.a. stepmom in training) I was really surprised how quickly she jumped in head-first into the role of both wife and stepmother.
Meanwhile, John has also shown his true colors as a friend this season, albeit not without his own struggles. We saw him take up the mantle as the Green Arrow for Oliver for a five-episode arc early in the season (which may have attributed to the decline in ratings, as although David Ramsey did a fantastic job in standing in as the Green Arrow, sidelining the main character so early in may have put off some viewers), and despite his injury and drug problem, his loyalty to Oliver as a friend and 'brother' as we could put it helped him brave his way through it.
Thea's character got off to a bit of a late start, having spent nearly one third of the season in a coma, but now we're starting to see some of that badass we first saw in her back in Season 1 coming back, along with a more mature side which parallels Oliver. In addition to seeing her step up as an aunt to William, she supports her brother to the best of her abilities, as it is very hard to forget the lengths he went to save her life back in Season 3. Probably the biggest change we're expected to see in Thea involves the brief return of Roy in a two-episode arc between 'Doppelganger' and 'The Thanatos Guild', which is noted to bring some major changes to her life. Some believe this may signal Willa Holland's departure from the series, but I'm inclined to believe the change goes in a much different direction.
Getting the chance to better know William this season has given the show a silver lining amidst a rather bleak timeline. At first he's a bit withdrawn and pretty angry (which we can hardly blame him for) and then we see him starting to open up, largely in part because of Felicity. Early on, we see the two of them starting to bond (I remember seeing this and thinking 'stepmom in training!') At the same time, I was glad to see him also get a chance to bond with Thea, as I can recall from Season 4 after she first learned about William and how much she adored the thought of being an aunt. True, William's relationship with his father took a curve ball when William found out Oliver had resumed his role as the Green Arrow without telling him, which really upset him. At first, Oliver is in doubt if he can continue as the Emerald Archer and at the same time as a father, but then Felicity points out that William may be a bit more resilient than he gives the impression. True, William still panics over the thought of losing Oliver so soon after losing his mother, but at the same time he's proven himself to be a pretty brave kid. In 'All for Nothing', he surprised everybody while on his school field trip when their bus was stuck in one of the city's tunnels when he led his classmates to safety before being rescued by his father. Then, in 'The Devil's Greatest Trick', we see him showing up at the final confrontation trying to wrestle the bomb switch away from Cayden James. Probably the most visible sign of William's courage is after Felicity explains to him how important Oliver's work is as the Green Arrow. Later that night, William admits he understands things better now.
On the downside, however, it appears that when the writers decided to both crank up the tension and dial back the speed of the show's storyline progression, it may have proven to make things just a little too dark and intense for some viewers to handle, as although the reviews I've seen thus far regarding the season have been mostly positive, the viewer count has dropped significantly since the season first premiered in October, with the lowest marks in the show's history being where the season has taken its darkest turns ('Thanksgiving', 'Irreconcilable Differences' and 'All for Nothing'). The darkness Oliver and his team have faced this season are alone not the problem, but the fact that its being stretched out so far and for so long has likely caused many viewers to wait until later in the season or after the season concludes in May to continue watching.
The biggest problem this season a lot of viewers have had is the division in Team Arrow, which was recently revealed to be the result of the season's main villain's influence. When it was revealed that Rene had turned against Oliver when Agent Watson threatened to basically blackmail him, that struck many as being a VERY low move, considering Oliver had just recently helped Rene regain custody of his daughter Zoe. His betrayal did a great deal of damage to the team, as it not only compromised Oliver's trust in him, but in Curtis and Dinah as well, which in turn led to the fallout. This division continued to worsen over the following five episodes before finally reaching its breaking point at the end of 'Collision Course'. In all of this, everybody suffered because of Rene, but none as much as Dinah, whose former partner Vince was murdered while trying to infiltrate Cayden James' cabal. I can't help but believe had they all been working together, they could have either saved Vince or outright prevented him from having to make the move he made altogether. Another revelation in the most recent episode which makes Rene even more culpable was seen during the interaction between the corrupt Police Chief and the DA handling Oliver's criminal case. He informed her that the case against Oliver was 'built on sand', hinting that Watson had only been bluffing about blackmailing Rene, meaning he'd really done all this damage for nothing.
Although most believe that following 'Collision Course', the rebellious recruits, commonly labeled as 'The Outsiders' are beyond redemption, which even Oliver has admitted at one point, I'm inclined to believe the three of them may have a chance later on in redeeming themselves once it is revealed that Diaz had been manipulating them all along. In addition, of all the things Oliver has proven himself to be, forgiving is indeed one of them, which he has also demonstrated this season in his interaction with Slade Wilson.
In conclusion, this has all the making to be a very good season in the long run. However, the decision to slow the pace of the show's story progression was extremely ill timed, as it has made the darkness Oliver and his team are facing a bit too overwhelming, a factor which is further compounded by the repeated breaks the CW has been forced to take from the airing schedule. Almost immediately following the show's return from Holiday break in late January, the show had to take a three-week break due to the 2018 Winter Olympics, which was recently announced is to be followed by another three-week break after 'Doppelganger' airs, which will continue until the end of March. I am still optimistic that this show will rebound, as being a writer myself I've seen the season riddled with red flags telling me this build up of darkness is basically a plot device setting up the show's main protagonists, mainly Oliver, to make one hell of a comeback.

2017.12.07 03:25 fapcitybish [Future Discussion] What would you like to be Arrow's successor/replacement?

If things don't go reaaaally well tomorrow night, I think I'm probably gonna skip out on the rest of the season and I'd honestly be surprised if they got more than one more season. Not to mention a big shake up to the Arrowverse with Kreisberg being gone now, it's possible Arrow may just end this season to make up for the Arrowverse as a whole losing a big part of what held it together (even if he was a garbage human being). To be honest, I've given up on Arrow. I've had so much hope for it even with its past mistakes, ideas to make it better, etc but I just don't see it ever getting better again so my hope has moved on to the future of the Arrowverse as a whole. My question is, what would you all like to see replace Arrow?
For me, the ideal replacement would be something that expands upon Arrow's grittier tone. One of the best parts of the crossovers is seeing all of the shows with their different themes and tones collide, from Arrow's grittiness to LoT's craziness, to Flash's focus on friendship and Supergirl's focus on hope, it's great to see it all merge together, so I think it's important to keep the darker tone of Arrow in whichever show replaces it. Some ideas...

2014.01.16 00:27 Rwings S02E10 - Blast Radius

Episode Info: ARROW HUNTS DOWN SHRAPNEL — Oliver must tackle a new threat to the city when bombs start to go off in Starling City. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) discovers the person setting them off is Mark Sheffer (guest star Sean Maher), a man who goes by the nickname Shrapnel. Arrow discovers Shrapnel’s next target is Sebastian Blood’s (guest star Kevin Alejandro) “Unity Rally” and tries to talk the alderman out of hosting it, but he refuses. Arrow sets off to stop the bombing, but Shrapnel tricks him and traps him in a bomb-laced antique store where he is unable to move without setting off the device. While Felicity helps Oliver, Diggle (David Ramsey) races to the plaza to find the bomb before it goes off. Meanwhile, Roy (Colton Haynes) continues to hide his new strength from Thea (Willa Holland) but, after she witnesses his super strength in action at the rally, she demands answers. Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) suspicions about Sebastian grow stronger once she learns that he grew up with Cyrus Gold, the man who killed Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) partner. After Donner (guest star Dylan Bruce) refuses to help her investigate, she turns to Arrow (Stephen Amell) for help. Rob Hardy directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Keto Shimizu (#210).
