Movie news, trivia and other snippets
 
I have been wanting to start this thread for a while because everyone now and come I come across little snippets of information I want to share with people and it can be hard to find an appropriate thread to squeeze it into and it isn't worth starting a new one.

Last week Aquaman hit $1bn at the cinema which is an achievement in itself let alone for the DC movie universe. I am pleased it has done well because I thought it was good but I didn't think it was a $1bn movie. To put things into context my favourite film last year was Ready Player One and it only made $579m and very annoyingly Venom which I thought was cack did $850m. I wish I could switch them around and give Ready Player One $1bn, Aquaman $850m and knock Venom right down to something like $300m. We know at $850m they are going to bang out another two and make a trilogy. At least I'll know not to watch them next time.

People’s tastes differ- that’s what makes life (and films) interesting.

I know but sometimes I think things would be better if we were all borg, I was the Borg King and everyone had to like what I liked.

If anyone is interested here are the top 20 for last year. I am glad to see Antman, Deadpool 2 and Mission Impossible doing well. The only other film I really enjoyed and isn't up there is The Darkest Hour but I suppose that is more of a Brit thing. It only did $150m of which $32m was in the UK which is impressive.

Some very good films there general but there are some excellent films which don't achieve much at the box office yet that does not make them a poor film as with films its all in the eye of the beholder as tastes can differ considerably.

I’ve seen the top 12, just not got round to Aquaman yet, as I’ve had conflicting reports from family about it.

me too apart from Fantastic Beasts, I am not interested.

Aquaman is defo worth a watch if you watch any of the DC stuff. I think it is just as good as Wonder Woman minus the babe.

A Soprano's prequel movie is in the works and James Gandolfino's real life will be playing the younger version of him in the film.

Lets hope it turns out as good as the series.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets
 
it is weird, I can remember it being in its prime when I was at uni and I didn't have the time to watch it at the time because I was already in to Alias, SG1, Smallville and whatever else. Over the years when I have thought about it and wanted to give it a go something else has always come along which has put it on the back burner. Atm for example I am up to date with my tv viewing but watching season 2 of The Punisher last week has put me back a week and I am conscious of the fact that there are only 78 days till season 8 of GoT airs and Endgame is out soon too. I want to watch all the Marvel movies again in the run up to Endgame and I have booked the week off work in the run up to 14th April so I can have a GoT marathon and hopefully watch one season a day in time for the season 8 premiere. Ideally I would like to hold on till season 8 finishes so I can watch the whole lot in one go but I get way too excited and I know my patience wouldn't hold out.

This is very good if you have seen Aquaman and the other DC movies (and keep up with the HISHE narrative)

A new Marvel MCU movie is in the works and introduces a new Asian superhero called Shang-chi. I got the info from SFX here is another article if you are interested. It will be good to have another kick ass hero on screen (similar to the Punisher) while we wait for the Black Widow film to come out.
