So is Baby Driver a Drive prequel?

I'm kinda stoked about baby driver, though the play list is a bit proggy for me. I only know this because Edgar Wright did a stint on Sirius XMU playing songs he was inspired by.

Aside Sirius has a temporary yacht rock channel for the next 4 weeks or so.

That could be peak blue & orange color palette right there.

Dunkirk is only 106 minutes long, and probably doesn't involve anything as messy as feelings. I might actually go see it.

It's an intriguing trailer for what is clearly a Hellboy prequel. I like the tone and the setup but man del Toro is just not a good director.

I want the Psych movie to be good because I love the show so much, but I don't think TV shows can usually make the jump to film with any real success. (Reno 911, for example, was pretty sad trombone.)



I am also terribly sad to see that James Roday seems to be afflicted with the early stages of John Travolta Aging Fat Head Syndrome.
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

Maybe usually, but it does happen often enough that I wouldn't give up hope. Firefly, South Park, Simpsons wasn't great but wasn't bad, Star Trek was uneven but some were good, what others am I missing?

I had no idea Reno 911 had a movie. Sounds like maybe it's better that way.

Dated over a year ago, google doesn't turn up anything more recent that Jan 2016, wonder if it's happening.

Were the Addams Family movies a reboot? I think it's easier to do it that way (although there are many, many failures in that category as well) than to take the same cast with their rhythm and chemistry, and move them to the big screen.

Serenity had its moments but overall did not work for me -- at least in comparison to Firefly. All I could think about was how much I'd rather have had another 2 or 3 episodes than the movie.

South Park is a good example, for sure. They nailed it.

And yes, I must give recognition to Star Trek for the one where they go back in time to save the whales. <3

The 1954 Dragnet wasn't. It wasn't very good, either, but neither was the series.

I don't think it would be fair to call the recent Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy a theatrical version of the famous Alec Guinness miniseries, but both were excellent.

The Fugitive was a pretty good movie.

Several Muppet movies were pretty good.

Downy Jr.'s The Singing Detective was pretty good, too.

Ah yes how could I forget those. I mean especially the '79 Muppet Movie, which was shockingly good IMO.

Because I think it's a story that deserves a good movie. It's just nostalgia, I haven't read it since like 4th grade but at the time I thought it was amazing. I once a long time ago looked up the existing (eta: film) versions and the reviews were all pretty bad.

I do admit the voice over quotes in the trailer don't give me a lot of optimism.

I never read the book. I don't know that I even heard of the book. And I spent most of the 80's immersed in the genre.
