No. His contract was not renewed, but it sounded like there was no animosity in parting ways again.

I find it really funny how almost every movie consisting of a female first name is an action/revenge/spy movie while if there would be a movie consisting of a male first name it would probably be an emotional drama or something 😁 Strange times...

MovieBob, speaking as someone who never knew what movies were out and which ones were worth watching. For the past two years or so, unless someone else was paying, you are the reason I go to movies. You describe movies the way I want them described. Thank you for sharing your talents. I think you make the world a better place.

My favourite part about that cold open is that - apart from the shirt - there's basically no way to know when in the last 6 months it was shot, or what news story is being implied.

Definitely agree that the actors in this movie were way too good for their roles. There was a huge gap between the script and the acting potential. Thus all these throwaway characters came off way better than they were probably intended to.

+5 points for working the word homunculus into a sentence. Haven't heard that since AD&D.

The plot summary sounds suspiciously like another Jessica Chastain movie that just came out in 2017, Molly's Game. It's like they took all the character background from that, and just imagined a different path in her early 20's.

I felt that it was a overwhelmingly cheap movie with really expensive actors. I wanted to walk out of a theater which recently happened to me only once, with Peppermint, an oddly similar movie.

It feels weird, but does Jack Packard do his own stuff or is he pushing in on other people's thing? I want to like the guy, but... he doesn't have a personality of his own. And he always sounds like a kid trying to think up the next sentence so he talks slowly as to not let other people talk. It feels like he has no niche, so he does a video game podcast with Yahtzee and a movie podcast with bob. If it's your choosing Bob, I hope you guys get to where you want to be, but right now, he's more of a factor pushing me away than adding to your quality.

You should check out Previously Recorded, his youtube show with Rich Evans. It's a great showcase for his personality and his great editing.

He used to be the videogame guy for RedLetterMedia which is mostly movie based. That's why he does a little of both here. I never watched his RLM stuff but I like him well enough here. Everyone else is more suited to playing the straight man in groups so he's a more silly personality for the others to bounce off of.

@Oscar McCormack OTOH, I've ended up watching I The Name of The King twice because there was nothing memorable about it. Were with The Bad Batch, I can remember it is terrible and never feel a desire to watch it again.

Oscar McCormack
Oscar McCormack

@Alverant I would agree, but the truly awful movies that I've seen are ones I'd rather have not wasted my time, money, and mental state watching. Boring movies generally have something to them that makes me not feel like my time was entirely wasted, even if they're bad.

Probably the worst thing for a film. Even a film that offends elicits a negative reaction from the viewer is still better than nothing.

What pistol is that in the box art? It looks like a 1911 slide and grip, but with a more glock-style tigger guard.

Måned siden
Isaac Banta
Isaac Banta

Yeah. The feeding ramp is polished to a mirror sheen. The slide's been reinforced. And the interlock with the frame is tightened for added precision. The sight system is original, too. The thumb safety is extended to make it easier on the finger. A long-type trigger with non-slip grooves. A ring hammer... The base of the trigger guard's been filed down for a higher grip. And not only that, nearly every part of this gun has been expertly crafted and customized. Where'd you get something like this?

Måned siden

It kind of looks like a beretta m9? Edit: I wonder if they haven't photoshopped multiple guns into a legally distinct, generic gun.

Jon O'Guin
Jon O'Guin

@Alverant Technically, if you're on the west coast of the US, the news came out late last night, so it's not IMPOSSIBLE he filmed the intro this morning, since it's so brief, alternatively, as you note, it's been a hell of a couple weeks, so that intro would have been appropriate basically any day for the last 14.

Måned siden
Alverant
Alverant

Unlikely. The news came out this morning. But it's not like there weren't other big news events recently like Trump's taxes, further efforts of voter suppression, more info about the cult the USSC nominee is in and her belief that judges should ignore the law in favor of building the kingdom of her god, etc.

While I always appreciate the honesty, I have to admit given the cast I was hoping it ended up being a better movie. Reminds me of Drowning Mona. Another great cast in a WTF movie.
