Watched it a second time, anyone else notice the big electronic billboard of a twinkie in time's square?

Probably the best callback in the trailer.

Looks a bit better than I expected but still not interested.

I predict a maximum of $350m worldwide.

I think it might make around $500m, just based on the name. I'd be surprised if it made much more than that though.

Today my brother mentioned it and said we'd go and see it, and my response was-

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

The original Ghostbusters is one of my all-time favorite films.

I will not be giving this version any of my money.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Yep, I read that earlier.

Cool, I guess.  Hope it's better than the last one.

But it's not a reboot or a remake.  Just a sequel.

I never saw the fourth one, and I'm not quite sure I want to. 1 & 3 are two of the best movies ever made, so I really don't want to be disappointed, which I probably will be.

You can't live life like that John.  Sure it's not as good but it's still not bad.  The story line is a little out there but so was the first one.  Like Hef said it's not as good as the other 3 but it's still good.

I enjoy the fourth Indie movie. It's my least favorite of the four, easily, but it's not that bad. It just has bad parts.

I just thought it wasn't worth the effort to make a fourth film if THAT was the fucking fourth film we got.

Yeah, it's OK, I guess, but it's so much less than the first three I didn't see the point.

I'll take LaBouf swinging with monkeys and bad Russian accents over "MR. JONES MR. JONES" and an annoying woman screaming and whining in every scene she's in.

The biggest problem with Crystal Skull is that it's boring, and that's still better than annoying. The Temple of Doom is pretty boring too though.

Eh, I didn't put any effort into making it, so what the heck. Then again, while I like the first three, I didn't grow up watching them or anything, so they don't mean as much to me as they seem to do to some people.

I only discovered Monty Python and the Holy Grail in the early 2000s, so I certainly didn't grow up with that, but I still love that movie. It varies I suppose.

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a fun time.  The characters are older, but they joke about it.  The callbacks make sense, and fit the story.  And I for one didn't have any problem with the story.  It's outrageous and ridiculous, as it should be in an Indiana Jones movie.  Aliens?  Cool.  If people didn't have trouble with a magic box that could melt the faces off of Nazis, why have a problem with aliens?

IJ4 was great fun up until the end at that... fortress, or whatever it was. My biggest issue with it is that the "MacGuffin' is the weakest part of the story, and by far the least interesting MacGuffin of the 4 IJ films.

They turned an iconic classic movie into generic Hollywood fare, at least judging from the trailer. Ugh.

Ben-Hur is one of my favorite movies.  I jumped on the Extra Special Collector's Edition Blu-ray or whatever they call it, and I'm glad I did.  Every once in a while, I pull it out and watch the chariot race in Extrasuperfuckingwidevision.  It's glorious.

That said, after watching it all the way through once, I probably won't again, at least for a while.  I'd forgotten how "epic" the movie really is.  There's a lot of story, a lot of setup for the initial conflict between Judah and Messala, the slave years, the battle at sea, the escape, the redemption, the chariot race...  It's a huge movie, and if someone has decided to trim it down a bit, then that's not necessarily a bad idea.  From the trailer, you can see that they've kept all of the key plot points, and at least a passing reference to the Christian angle (remember that the full title of both the book and the movie is "Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ"), so I'm not writing this off quite yet.

Also, remember that the epic 1959 version with Charleton Heston was a remake as well.  Lew Wallace did the screenplay for both the 1959 version and the original 1925 version.

Anyone excited about the Rock's Baywatch reboot? 

While obviously unnecessary, I can almost guarantee it will be better than the original show.

It doesn't have Pamela Anderson in her prime running in slow motion on the beach to music by Jimi Jamison. There's no way it can beat the original. Especially if it has the Rock in it.
