Every time I saw Reg Cathey my brain always recognized him as "the guy from Square One Television".

According to Variety, Fassbender has signed on to star in the sequel to Kung Fury, the 2015 short film that has gained a massive cult following ever since it was partially funded on Kickstarter. Much like the original short, the Kung Fury sequel will take place in Miami circa 1985, where Kung Fury and his Thundercops police force work to keep the peace. After a Thundercop dies, causing the group to disband, a mysterious villain teams up with Hitler to “attain the ultimate weapon.”

Fassbender joins a returning David Hasselhoff, who had a role and music video in the original short film. Shooting is expected to start this summer.

I thought it was bad when I went to see Rogue One on opening night and they accidentally started up In The Heart Of The Sea by mistake, but I think this one has me beat...

I had high expectations but was not impressed. To me it was like a cross between a Tarantino movie and a Cohen bros movie.

I'm very excited for it. As important and great as Black Panther is I hope Annihilation doesn't get lost in the progressive shuffle. It's a diverse female ensemble cast heading an original sci-fi action film. It's success will be important on so many levels.

I don't get the Tarantino part. It does have somewhat of Miller's Crossing feel to it (a little) but the N-word is only used twice. It's heart-wrenchingly well acted by everyone and more than convincingly portrays life "in the heartland". Ebbing Missouri is not a town anyone wants to visit. Some critics are saying it's a story of redemption, but I don't think anyone is redeemed in this story.

Yeah, it's very Coen-esque at times, but I don't get the Tarantino comparison at all. And the backlash the movie has gotten seems hinged on the idea that it is, like you said, a redemption story, which I didn't see it as at all.

You go from hating him and reviling him to not necessarily sympathizing with him, but feeling pity for him. So while it's not a full redemption story (you simply can't apologize for the things he did and said), there are still some redemption qualities in his arc.

And even if what they are planning to do is awful, the theory is that they are doing it for justice, not kicks. That's why I love the ending, you can view it from both sides of the spectrum and think the person they're going after is guilty or innocent and either theory is probable. You can't have a wrong theory because any theory is set up to be entirely subjective and I think that's horsefeathering great

I've seen it three times. It's got some harrowing horsefeathers in there but there's enough humor to make it enjoyable on multiple viewings. It's not like Requiem for a Dream or anything. I've yet to see several of the Oscar contenders, but of the ones I've seen, it's my favorite of the year so far by a wide margin.

Isn’t it based on a book? Doesn’t change the all-female cast part of your point.

I saw Black Panther this weekend and it was amazing. I only had a few problems with the movie. The CGI was pretty bad towards the end during the climactic battle scenes. I feel like the CGI is getting worse during these big battle scenes in Marvel movies. I hope they fix this for Avengers: Infinity War.

Spoiler: show
I really wished they featured more scenes with Sterling K. Brown's character N'Jobu. I really sympathized with his character.

I saw it last night and I had the same thought but just assumed I was too close (only seats available in a crowded theater were in row 2). I still loved it. Now I'm listening to the soundtrack finally and I'm obsessed.

Ahh, it appears so. Not sure the general movie going public will know that, though. Kind of assumed since Alex Garland was doing it it was an original idea. But yeah, the female cast in a sci-fi thing is still very important.

I'm probably going to pull a double feature tonight and go see Black Panther followed by Annihilation.

Man, that Black Panther movie is just knocking it out of the park. How are things going on the DC side of things?

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... ie-1087384

Joss Whedon is saying goodbye to DC Entertainment heroine Batgirl.

Whedon, the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer among other pop culture touchstones, is exiting the Warner Bros. feature project, which he was writing and was slated to direct.

"Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn't have a story," Whedon told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. Referring to DC president Geoff Johns and Warner Bros. Picture Group president Toby Emmerich, Whedon added, "I'm grateful to Geoff and Toby and everyone who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I…uh, is there a sexier word for 'failed?'"


Oh.

Seriously, how do they keep horsefeathering this up.
