User Questions http://www.screened.com/profile/mixedupzombies/
What's your thoughts on after credits movie sequences from the fun in the simpsons movie to the pointless in X-Men 3. Also, What is your guys thoughts on the Clue-like Wolverine movie after credits sequences.
I generally like the end of credits clips but they don't belong in every movie. Throw them in on the DVD. http://www.screened.com/profile/tepidshark/
(hope it is not too disgusting a question) Have you guys ever figured out a good solution for needing to go to the bathroom, but not wanting to miss the movie when watching it in theaters?
No there is no solution. I never feel bad about needing to go to the toilet during the movie. http://www.screened.com/profile/joe/
Which actor or actress do you think has improved the most as their career goes on? I'd probably go for Keira Knightley as she's grown to be a lot better with age (compare something like Atonement to Bend It Like Beckham). I can't say I pay attention to really young actors and actresses http://www.screened.com/profile/gaff/
Alex's feature on 80's movies got me thinking: almost every movie from that era had a theme song associated with it. Top Gun had Danger Zone / Take My Breath Away, Ghost had Unchained Melody, The Breakfast Club had Don't You Forget About Me, to name just a few examples.
Nowadays, every movie seems to go the instrumental route. Whatever happened to the corny theme songs? Did pop music get too big?
And / or what are your favourite theme songs?
Not sure if this has been asked before, or if this can wait until Alex is back (he started it!). Thanks in advance.
If a movie isn't about music I find it hard to associate it to a particular song. http://www.screened.com/profile/purple_proletarius/
Hey Rorie (and whoever the hell else is there), I was wondering if you would agree that we are living in the "Golden Age" of instant streaming. Netflix is currently a gold mine for movie enthusiasts, but as Amazon and Hulu catch up selections might become more frustrating. Competition often works to the advantage of the consumer, but I do not look forward to the day that I have to cross-reference Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon to figure where what movies I want are and what subscriptions are worth my money. Netflix right now has about 65% of the market right now. Competition between streaming providers will only be good for the consumer. http://www.screened.com/profile/timallen624/
Hey Screeners (mostly Rorie), if by some grace of fate Firefly was put back on tv what station do you think it would have a chance on? Do you think if it was put back on Fox or any other big networks that it would buried and canceled again or if it would do better on something like SciFi? Hypothetically - Sci-fi or maybe HBO but its never going to happen http://www.screened.com/profile/pat4327/
I've been really excited for Fast Five since the first trailers came out, but after watching the previous films to catch up on the "rich" Fast and Furious lore, I'm a little more concerned. The first film was alright, but the sequels range anywhere from "marginally watchable" to "garbage." Given that the director of Fast Five also directed Tokyo Drift and Fast & Furious, do you think the new movie will be around the same quality level, or do you think Fast Five will be as awesome as the trailers make it out to be?
If Jeff was here he would be hitting you right now. I'm not a car guy, my total driving mileage my entire life is probably around 2000 miles.
