WONDER WOMAN TRAILER

"Yes yes yes. It's a super-heroine movie. I've sat through man after man after man having superpowers, and I don't think any Marvel movie even passes the Bechdel Test, so by Jove, when they finally give me a super-heroine, I will watch it." - Anna

"No to all this junk. Grown-up movies, please." -Vladdy

Two Questions Inspired By Ghostbusters

I'm off to a Ghostbusters (2016) screening and these questions and a desire to hear your answers suddenly struck me:

1. Which male heavy movie would you most love to see rethunk with a female heavy cast?

2. If you had a vote for Best Original Song in 1984 which of the hit single nominees would you have gone for? (They were all huge hits)

"Against All Odds" (Against All Odds)
"Footloose" (Footloose)
"Ghostbusters" (Ghostbusters)
"I Just Called To Say I Love You" (The Woman in Red)
"Let's Hear It For the Boy" (Footloose)

...or would you have chucked out the nominees altogether to have "I Can Dream About You" (Streets of Fire) "The Heat is On" (Beverly Hills Cop) "Love Came For Me" (Splash), "Together Again" (The Muppets Take Manhattan), "Almost Paradise" (Footloose), "The Never Ending Story" (The Never Ending Story), "Together in Electric Dreams" (Electric Dreams), or maybe five songs from Purple Rain (even though it won an Oscar for Song Score - more Oscars for Prince!!!

Open Thread.

I just assembled an entire chair from provided instructions so am feeling unusually manly. Grunt. Grunt. Also hoping it makes my writing less painful and more productive like -- Old chair to the garbage bin!

What's on your cinematic mind? Inspire us with your brain vomit and Happy Weekend!

What's on your cinematic mind?

It's an open thread as your host is otherwise slammed at the moment. Are Oscar's all that's on your mind or are you a non-conformist this week and otherwise cinematically preoccupied? Do tell in the comments. 

P.S. Just as I posted this news broke that Nate Parker's slave rebellion drama The Birth of a Nation, the Sundance sensation, has a release date now. It'll be a wide release (!) on October 7th, 2016 from Fox Searchlight. October is a good month for Oscar releases.

What's on your mind... besides Oscar Isaac?

Look at that cutie. No, not that one. Scroll down -- that doggie is so cute it almost pulls focus from Oscar Isaac, the web's current boyfriend. Apparently he plays a serial killer in his new film Mojave (opening in limited release) this weekend. I'm so over serial killers in movies. According to tv & movies serial killers must make up about 15% of the world's population and the one job market that's always booming is for Trained Assassins. By 2018 we'll all be dead!  

This is a long way of saying I'm probably not going to the movies this weekend (January is the one month I take a break aside from rescreenings of Oscar nominees for writing purposes) but maybe you are? The 5th Wave? The Boy? Dirty Grandpa? The Romanian Oscar submission Aferim! (when is Romania going to catch a break with the Oscars?)?

What are your cinematic plans this weekend? What's on your movie mind?
