Discussion Who’s an actor that once you see them in the trailer, you know it’s going to be a bad movie?

139 Upvotes

This has nothing to do with an actors personal life or exploits off the screen. Does anyone else experience this where just the mere presence of a an actor lets you know the movie will be bad?

For me it’s Michele Rodriguez. I can’t think of a movie I’ve ever seen her in that I liked. It’s not so much that she ruins the movie or her acting really affects anything. It’s just a feeling that if they were willing to cast her, it must be bad.

I know she’s been featured in one the largest franchises of all time(Fast and Furious), so studios might think she’s a draw. I honestly think she just got lucky being in the first movie.

Anyone feel this way about any actors or do I have too much time on my hands?

Discussion Lets talk about the fight scene at Red's house on Pineapple Express... I still think its one of the funniest comedy movie scenes in history.

27 Upvotes

This was the type of scene where theres so much more going on than you realize. Every interaction was comedy gold in this scene from start to finish. Especially when Dale puts Red's head through the drywall, I still belly laugh.

Then they are trying to break in the bathroom door, Red yells at them for ruining his portable house phone. Then he asks them if they are going to pay for the door if they break it. When the door busts down, Red goes flying head first into the sink and breaks it off the wall, but walks away unscathed lol!

Does anyone else have a favorite scene in this movie?

Discussion Anyone get really annoyed at how sometimes subtitles paraphrase the dialogue rather than transcribe word for word?

133 Upvotes

I'm sure I've seen it in other films but it jumped out at me when I was watching The Godfather on Netflix while my SO was asleep on the couch. So I turned the volume down and the subtitles on.

It was really annoying how it seemed like lazy approximations of the dialogue rather than what they were actually saying. Especially since the writing in that film is phenomenal.

Is there a reason some movies do this? Because honestly it seems like it would take more effort to rewrite entire dialogues this way.

Recommendation Klaus(2019) is a wonderful animation movie about Christmas.

2.7k Upvotes

Well the Christmas is near, so thought of recommending this movie. It has a very sweet take on Christmas with magical moments within it to keep the viewers attached to the movie. The characters are simple and that is what makes the story great, nice animation and wonderful storytelling. A movie that you will enjoy thoroughly.

Edit#1: I wrote that the movie is simple, because I felt the story and it's narration was very simple. It's like a folklore or a child's lullaby. And that made it feel so great to me.

Edit#2: Here is a bin of other Christmas movies that I enjoyed
