idk if anyone cares but there is a William Joel concert film coming to theatres this October for 3 days.

One of my bucket list things is to go to one of his concerts and this might be the only way I might be able to see one. Ya it's an old one but they did some wonders to the footage and sound and it looks great.

Watched Piranha (1978) this morning.

Biologically enhanced Piranhas are accidentally let loose from an abandoned military facility and threaten a big lakeside celebration as they work their way downstream.

It's definitely a bit cheesy in spots due to age, but still a pretty fun & effective disaster/horror film overall. Currently free on FreeVee.

@RR529 is that the one where Betty White is the villain. I've never seen whatever film that was I just know it exists.

@Kermit1, no, it doesn't have Betty White in it. The closest thing to a villain (in terms of people) is the military (post-Vietnam film & all).

There are two reboot's though. One in the 90's & one in the early 2010's, so she may be in one of those. Both are on FreeVee as well.

Piranha 3-D and its sequel (Piranha 3-DD...) made me lose faith in humanity. lol

@Maxenmus those movie movies make me actually ill. I've never seen one just videos about them. Whenever a bad movie comes out I question cinema as a whole, but then I realize those people are making bad movies for the heck of making bad movies. Then really bad movies make me second guess life, my inspirations and future.

@Kermit1, @Maxenmus, For some reason I was thinking that Piranha 3D & 3DD were the same movie (with the latter being an extended cut of sorts). I had no idea one was an actual sequel.

In any case, yes, I believe P3D is a reboot of this 70's film, and it's actually P3DD that FreeVee has, not P3D. So FreeVee has Pirhana (1978), Piranha (1995), & Piranha 3DD, but not Piranha 3D.

@RR529
Seems like a poor choice between the two since Piranha 3D at least tried to pretend like it has a real plot (instead of just cashing all in on the craziness like the sequel).

"The thing about street fights? The street always wins."

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the Fast and Furious series is the Top Gun of our generation in terms of machismo cheese.

Just some animated movie news, Kung Fu Panda 4 officially confirmed...

@Kermit1 Name some, I'm kind of curious on which Disney movies were dark. I noticed @Maxenmus mentioned The Black Cauldron, and that always looked on the dark side whenever I saw it on Disney+.

@Kermit1 @Anti-Matter Yup, earlier in the day, DreamWorks revealed it via their Instagram account.

@Kermit1 Me too, actually, I saw the first three within the past year or so, and I have Po on Brawlhalla, so actually really happy for this one.

@Sunsy well here are some of the dark ones though all but one have lighter moments in them.

  • Something Wicked This Way Comes: this is the darkest Disney film.
  • Return To OZ: I love this film but it is pretty dark for a kids film... That scene with the heads...
  • Ruby Bridges: This film is the most underrated Disney film ever and it's dark in subject matter and themes and there is some stuff in this movie that I'm shocked to see Disney say yes to.
  • Dick Tracy: The film looks 100/10... But is very gruesome in some scenes.
  • 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: I love this film and it handles the amazing (so many words to describe) Captain Nemo sooo well (in my opinion).
  • Temple Of Doom: Disney owns it.

Almost forgot Straight Story: A legit journey 10/10 film.

Watched a couple of older films recently.

The Florida Project follows a single mother and her daughter living hand-to-mouth in a motel in the shadow of Disney World. It's quite an extraordinary film, a bit like Ken Loach or maybe Andrea Arnold, with astonishing performances from the non-actor cast, especially the children (with Willem DaFoe bringing his grace and levity as one of the few pros).
It's at once a freewheeling, sunny picture, yet also depressing and upsetting as you know that this endless summer for the kids is set in a world of discrimination, abuse, and destruction. The ending is incredible.
Brilliant cast and wonderful cinematography and lighting.

The Warrior is Asif Kapadia's first film, and I've been meaning to watch it since it came out. Utterly beautiful metaphysical revenge and redemption tale set in Rajasthan. Some of its plotting and shots are indicative of a first-timer, but it's wonderfully done. There is a sequence near the start that is one of the best things I've ever seen, and I'm glad it still held up from the time I saw that bit on a review show 20 years ago.

Heard about it elsewhere, and I'm super interested in seeing how they will revive this series in theaters.

The link on my profile got even worse.

Don't click on it.

Or you can, at your own risk.

@Rambler
Unpopular opinion: Temple of Doom is my favorite Indiana installment. And I have no regrets or guilty pleasure about it. lol I didn't even realize it's racist. Also, I liked Willie because she felt like a real person instead of one of those perfect, badass, ideal women Hollywood loves to put in their movies. She grew on me despite her flaws (or rather, because of her flaws).

The other Indiana films just bored me, probably because I outgrew adventure action scenes by that point in my life. I was literally waiting for Indiana's fighting with the bad guys to be over.

@Rambler Temple of Doom is a film I don't care for. I see your point though.
