Maximum Impact (2018) and American Assassin (2017) have completely identical posters by connor_500 in movies

[–]pantsfish 1319 points1320 points  (0 children)

There are only so many (effective) ways you can arrange people and words on a single poster. If you worked in a video store long enough, you start to see clear templates

The Staredown

Under-the-Legs Sex Comedy Shot

Will they or won't they fuck?

Blinded by Justice!

"Notice Me Plz" Indies

The Eyeball

Sexy/Awful Lips

Photobooth + Ominous Text

And often even just the color scheme follows a genre template. The two primary colors used can tell you a lot about the film

Natural colors are Blue, not green

Blue + Orange = Nature's Disruption with magic or sci-fi stuff

Red + Black = Hard Noir

Orange + Black = 50% chance of Nicholas Cage

Protip: '90s, not 90's. It's a contraction.

HBO, Amazon and Hulu have 44 combined. Also, the list is outdated. Netflix has 37. The number one streaming service with the most is Filmstruck with 43....yes....I had a bit of time to kill.

  • Filmstruck: 43
  • Netflix: 37
  • Kanopy: 30
  • Amazon Prime: 20
  • Starz: 17
  • HBO: 13
  • Hulu: 11
  • Hoopla: 9

Numbers based off of JustWatch website.

Edit: First Gold! Here is the doc with all the movies listed and where they're streaming.

People out here with no industry experience. Do you have any idea how fucking tightly the rightsholders hold those rights? (Wordplay intentional).

When you have a hit movie, you don't want a flat fee license deal with Netflix, you want points on the play with some pay-per-rental or digital purchase system.

Stop bitching and either be grateful Netflix exists or unsubscribe from it.

Edit: Thanks for the Gold, anon. Cheers to you.

Fury would have been so much better if Shia LaBeouf was randomly behaving like a cholo in the middle of WWII.

'Skyfall' & 'Casino Royale' Writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade Rehired to Salvage 'Bond 25' After Director Danny Boyle's Departure by BunyipPouch in movies

[–]lemonylol 217 points218 points  (0 children)

Did a rewatch of the series a couple of years ago. Goldfinger should honestly be the standard that all Bond films are weighed against. It is the quinessential Bond film that has everything the series is known for.

I mean a lot of people think Bond movies need to only be dark and gritty but that's just plain not true. I don't think the newer films are bad, but they take themselves way too seriously.

Survivor Of 'The Predator' Sex Offender Says She's 'Eternally Grateful' To Olivia Munn by mpnatturner in movies

He's not obligated to tell everyone he works with of his criminal history. People should be able to move on with their lives.

Yeah, sure, people don't want to work with others with a criminal past. But that's really not their decision to make.

After 3-Month Silence, Chinese Authorities Confirm Status of Disappeared Actress Fan Bingbing by holysocks in movies

China, your lack of transparency betrays your fear of public rebuke and, therefore, your inherent political weakness.

If Netflix Adds Advertisements, It Could Lose a Quarter of Its Subscribers, According to Study by BunyipPouch in movies

Yeah like, if I’m completely honest here, I’d definitely still keep Netflix lol.

[–]Clovis42 135 points136 points  (0 children)

Yeah, people keep saying this, but I don't know when they are talking about. The original garbage on cable was from local networks and had ads. The premium cable channels never had ads, but you paid for them individually. The rest of cable always had ads. Like, MTV always had ads.

They definitely had ads 20 years ago. I was watching cable in the early 80s and there were ads.

I am so freaking excited. Everything on this summary screams best movie ever. by brasszero in movies

Watch it and then go find the podcast "How Did This Get Made" with Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas and June Diane Raphael.

They did an episode on this movie and it was freaking amazing,just like all of them are!

Edit: Thank you for the gold and all of the upvotes. I am very happy to see so many fans of How Did This Get Made!!!

GEEEEEEEOOOOOOOSTOOOOOOORRRRMMMM!!!!!

Edit #2. I tried to respond to everyone's replies! If I didn't get to it, because it's 2:30am and I'm falling asleep on my phone, thank you for making this a fun evening!

Also, thanks to all the folks for suggestions of new podcasts!!! I have a whole new backlog now!

On that note, Jason, do you have anything to plug?
