Recommendation Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers

42 Upvotes

Of the movies to come out this weekend the on red I was most excited for was Rescue Rangers. This was a bit odd for me because while this seemed like Disney’s plan to draw people in with nostalgia from the old TV show, I’ve never seen the old show but instead was hooked in by the trailer. Since then I did watch a few episodes to familiarize myself with the characters and just watched the movie tonight. In short, I was very entertained by the film. While certainly reminiscent of Rodger Rabbit, I was surprised to see how many characters and references they were able to use. That being said, it wasn’t just banking in on cameos, but actually did a good job of integrating them into this world without seeming wasted or forced. Overall, I would say if you haven’t seen the show, watch a few episodes and then the film. If you grew up with the show I would definitely recommend this film.

Discussion A movie you liked but can't watch again ?

13 Upvotes

For me it has been Logan and Million Dollar Baby. Incredible movies, amazing acting but the endings was so sad, I can't dare to watch them again. Sometimes If I have the urge, I just watch the trailer and it reminds me how painful the character deaths were. Maybe some movies are best experienced once.

Recommendation 'The Place Beyond the Pines' (2012) directed by Derek Cianfrance

120 Upvotes

The director of 'The Place Beyond the Pines' Derek Cianfrance stated in an audio commentary that his backer would give him the budget if he shortens the script from 156 pages to 120 pages. Derek Cianfrance just slightly reduced the text size and extended the edge of the sides. Nobody has noticed it until he revealed it.
