The entire film was cooked up just to get Jennifer Jason Leigh to run around naked for a little while.

Sounds like a great film to me!

A little ways off, but I am stoked for the new Dune movies coming out. I love Denis Villeneuve's work, and the cast is tight:

Rebecca Ferguson   ...   Lady Jessica
Timothée Chalamet   ...   Paul Atreides
Zendaya   ...   Chani
Jason Momoa   ...   Duncan Idaho
Oscar Isaac   ...   Duke Leto Atreides
Dave Bautista   ...   Glossu 'Beast' Rabban
Josh Brolin   ...   Gurney Halleck
Stellan Skarsgård   ...   Baron Vladimir Harkonnen
Javier Bardem   ...   Stilgar

I didn't know anything about Timothée and thought he looked a little odd, but then I saw the Netflix film Henry and was like, yep, he's going to rock it. Pretty much a slam dunk cast it should be awesome.

For the record I like the original too, even tho its a mess. Been trying to read the novel for like 2 years now but just don't have the time.

Important question. How does the upcoming Ghostbusters film fit into the timeline of the others?
Its pretty much Ghostbusters 3. If you watch the trailer, Paul Rudd shows them some 80s new clips of the first movie saying "back in the 80s it was like The Walking Dead"

The two main characters are Egon's grandchildren.

Just watch the trailer! It looks good and some of the scenes look like its based off the old 80s/90s cartoon show with the ecto1. One movie critic I follow said to him it seemed like the goonies but with ghostbusters.

Yeah I saw the trailer too and are looking forward to it. I bet it serves as a sort of sequel/reboot since these kids are pretty young and if the movie does well there will prob be a sequel.

I know he's old as dirt now, but would love to see Bill Murray make an appearance. Without dying for god's sake.

You should check out the Dune thread. http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=50495.25 I have only read the first novel but its really good.

Don’t know if this is a new movie but but it’s Jim Carey so I suspect not. It’s the animated version of ‘The Christmas Carol’ and I find I really liked it. The only weak part was the chase scene with the ghost of Christmas future. Otherwise I liked this second only to the 1952 version which is untouchable.
It was on the Disney channel which we just signed up for online. The only problem is that there’s a glitch that pauses for about 2 seconds regularly. Not the soundtrack but the film. Most frustrating.

I wound up seeing Episode 9. I don't know why. I would have probably liked it more if the lights didn't remain on halfway through the film and there weren't 48 minutes of local adds and trailers

I've only seen Treasure Planet in bits and pieces (and very few bits and pieces) but after watching Cinemawins about it, I decided to watch it.

HOW HAVE I MISSED THIS FOR SO LONG!!! Its great! Maybe its because I am a parent now but I went red faced, giving myself a headache, trying not to cry at the part where Jim and Silver are bonding mid film as the Goo Goo Dolls play. Beautifully put together story and the character designs and universe are just wonderful. I am surprised there isn't a "Guns of Icarus" style game set in this style. I remember watching a cartoon version of Treasure Island when I was a young kid on Nickelodeon, and I had seen Muppet Treasure Island, so I remember some parts of the narrative and was excited to see the parallels between the story and this sci-fi version. Jim's growth and the father figure he finally got was just so believable and somehow realistic. All in all, a solid film.

I was obsessed with Treasure Island when I was young. I own several adaptions of it. The one to avoid is a 1995 cartoon adaption which features a Fred Flintstone esque Long John

I am curious if its the one I saw on Nick as a kid. If so, it was my first time experiencing Treasure Island. Never finished it though. We had to leave at about the part where Jim meets the marooned guy that snagged Jim in a trap.

I liked the Muppet one, but after seeing Treasure Planet, I think Planet is my new favorite adaptation.
