From what I've heard... and I hope it's not true... meeting Lynch might be a case of, "Don't meet your heroes."

I've heard a lot of people trash Dune. I haven't seen it yet. What's the supposed problem? Is it really problematic or did people simply not "get it"? I mean, all I ever heard up until like 5 years ago was how "Fire Walk With Me" was one of the worst things ever set upon the Earth, and now it's (rightly) hailed as a masterpiece (as indecipherable to the uninitiated/unfamiliar as it admittedly is). Sometimes things are "bad", and sometimes they're really great and it just takes people a while to catch up. I hear a lot of people dismiss Dune so I'm curious what your take is before I see it.
Lynch largely refuses to talk about Dune because of all the studio interference. It's like Fincher with Alien 3.

It's fine, to me. It's hard to be objective about it, as I saw it as a little kid and slept in Dune movie bedsheets and all. I don't like how he changed the ending to rainbows and joy, but that could have been part of the studio interference that pissed him off. Super memorable, iconic scenes.

Absolutely worth watching, for sure.

Interesting, interesting.

I'd still take the chance on meeting, on account of, I've met tons of "those people" and they've consistently been terrific, at least with me. Most notably, Notorious Dick Kevin Nash, for example. Total sweetheart. I think some people get caught at a bad time and perhaps others are bad at reading their signals. I'unno. My luck generally runs pretty good. I'd risk a hearty handshake and a heartfelt "Thanks for everything", if nothing else.

I've heard people say that Lynch doesn't like when people ask him to explain or go into too much detail about his work, but to be honest, that must get irritating. He must get that constantly.

Dune is on the list. The plan is to clean up next time we hit the FYE at the mall, probably later this week. It's cool that my wife is really excited to see these things, as well. I hadn't expected all that.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu. It was nice and the pokemen were cute. The scene with Mr. Mime tickled my funny bone.

A Silent Voice. If there's one Anime movie I'd recommend to anyone, it's A Silent Voice. Everything about the movie is designed to tug at your emotions.

it's still to this day, only one of two movies that made me cry

Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I'm trying to think of something to complain about, but it's too hard. This might be a perfect cross-over movie, as every character is handled with respect.
Spoiler:
If you're a fan of Poison Ivy and are mad about what they did with her, it still made sense and was funny.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. Great non-stop action fun. Halle Berry was fine, but her action bits weren't as convincing as Keanu's. I have a lot of questions about who is and isn't "in the know" in the movie's world, because seemingly hundreds of ordinary people don't care about other people getting brutally sliced to death right in the middle of a crowd. Sometimes the action and certain people's skills are too unrealistic even for highly trained killers.

"Edge of the World" via Netflix.

Not quite sure I'm buying the battles, they feel slightly hokey or not quite believable... but the kids are enjoyable and the aliens are creepy enough.

So glad to hear. Plus a few Amazon reviews I glanced over... making me look forward to checking this out. Hopefully I can find it in Walmart or Target on release day.

Dude, I am so hyped to go see it. I heard it's getting trashed for having "not enough human drama"? Like, get the f*ck outta here. Monster fights are WHY people like these movies.

Saw "The Perfection" on Netflix. Lesbian revenge thriller that tricked me into thinking it was going to be either a dawn of the zombie apocalypse movie or an all-out plague movie. Some pretty clever misdirection. It was oh-kay.

Yeah, and those parts aren't even that bad. But don't worry, the movie's a club banger.

Caught a movie called Searching, I nearly turned it off early on as I wasn't keen on the format but it turned out to be quite interesting after all.

Netflix's I Am Mother. Definitely a twisty one that keeps you guessing, esp after a while, and then still thinking it over after it ends.

Rewatched all the live action Star Wars movies. I guess my standards have dipped, or I'm not paying enough attention but I don't find some of them as vile as other people on the internet.

Batman vs Turtles was pretty good. Not quite sold on the turtle designs, but still better than Rise.

Isn't it Romantic. I laughed.

Dark Phoenix. I don't think all the hate it's getting is warranted. It wasn't the worst, but not the best either. Maybe I just like Sophie Turner.

Godzilla was awesome.

Superman 1978, on the big screen.

My local cinema hosted a special screening of the film yesterday night, which I managed to catch because I absolutely love the film with every fiber of my being.

I've seen the film many times before, but viewing it on the big screen (and remastered in 4K) for the first time, was truly an experience of its own.

The sheer scale of the story, the visuals (such as seeing the planet Krypton, and the Fortress of Solitude), the music, and most importantly, the performances and the heart that were put into the film is a spectacle that is worth checking out.

I had work the next morning at 6 am, so finishing the movie so late was exhausting, but I don't regret it one bit.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.
