Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

00:01-17:22 Ang Lee's awkward Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk starring Joe Alwyn and Garret Hedlund

Box Office: Arrival Opens Well for Amy

What did you see this weekend? Doctor Strange (reviewed) continued to be the top draw at the box office tower but Arrival had a strong debut for a thinking person's non-action oriented sci-fi epic. (It's Amy Adams best headline opening since Enchanted !) But will mainstream audiences like it or will we see a big drop next weekend after word gets out that it's, well, a thinking person's movie? Will Oscar come calling or will they prefer the less genre-oriented fare this year? What's your best guess? Meanwhile in limited release...

19:35 Slight spoilery territory on Arrival and comparing it to other movies
27:05 Cape Fear's 25th anniversary. One of our favorite Scorsese's.
33:30 Loving a quiet civil rights drama
41:11 Almost Christmas and goodbyes

Amy 'Arrives' This Friday

Just a few days until Arrival opens. It's one of the year's best movies and a mainstream sci-fi grandiosity that deserves success so do not miss it. I watched it with anxious wonder, something like the expression Amy aces at peak moments within the film.

Psycho Beach Party (2000)Up next for the 42 year old Oscar-Darling: the miniseries Sharp Objects (quick name an Oscar-bait actresses who isn't doing a miniseries in 2017 -- they're everywhere!) and two reprisal roles with Lois Lane again (sigh) in Justice League and Giselle again (yay) in Disenchanted.

Do you remember the first time you ever saw Amy Adams onscreen? For me it was either flirty bitchy "Marvel Ann" in Psycho Beach Party (2000) or "Cousin Beth" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But I first really paid attention and noted her name in Catch Me If You Can (2002).
