I'm not wowed, but I'm mildly intrigued, and the character designs closely resembling Charles Addams' original designs is a neat touch.

I'll read the reviews, but I'm not hopeful. Looks lame. Especially as both Astin/Jones and Julia/Huston set the bar high.

Julia/Hudson especially cast a long shadow, agreed, and this might aim at younger audiences. I'd need to see more.

So, gender flipped Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? I don't know who ordered that but okay. If it's rated 'fresh' I'll probably stream it.

HBO greenlights a TV version of Nicolas Winding Refn's Maniac Cop reboot

Refn will direct the series, alongside Universal Soldier: Regeneration’s John Hyams, who had previously been tapped to direct the film version of the project.

Trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife

If they were already going for a Stranger Things vibe it seems like overkill to cast one of the actual kids from Stranger Things in it

I'm pro-Paul Rudd but I seriously resent the lack of Kate McKinnon.

I like that trailer a lot, and I hope the movie lives up to it

I haven't seen much about Deputy on Fox, but I assume it will be by-the-numbers cop-sucking fare. On the other hand, it has Bex Taylor-Klaus and I adore them ...

The ads make it seem like the main conflict is between him and 'the establishment' but it's not at all clear what the show's take on 'the establishment' is.

I'm guessing some combination of racist conservatives and pansy-ass liberals who care about rights and stuff.

Probably bureaucrats (in the pocket of businessmen of course) who keep wanting to play politics instead of just letting the noble police officers do their jobs without interference or oversight.

Related to the copyright thread, it occurred to me that I'd always wanted to film Ray Bradbury's short story Chrysalis, and it's an early one so maybe copyright won't last much longer. I went to look up when it was published and the first thing that I discovered is that somebody already filmed it. Now I know how Jodorowsky felt about Dune. But I figured oh well, like Jodorowsky maybe I should go see the thing anyway. Let's look it up...
In a post-apocalyptic world, a scientist emerges from an underground bunker...
Fuck that. The original was not set in a post-apocalyptic world or a bunker or anything like that. But I see that Bradbury actually collaborated with the filmmakers, so I'm torn.
I sort of feel like a sucker about aspiring to be intellectually rigorous when I could just go on twitter and say capitalism causes space herpes and no one will challenge me on it. - Hugh Akston

"How faithful is an adaptation to the source material?" is not a serious critical inquiry in that it almost never has any bearing on the quality of the work.

Yeah but the quality of the work is not the sole concern of the critique.

I mean, the only critical dimension besides "is the movie any good?" that I can think of offhand is "what does the movie have to say?" But again that is tangentially if at all related to the fidelity of the adaptation.

The Abrams Star Trek movies are not faithful to the Roddenberry extended universe is a valid criticism.

Of course it is. All criticisms are valid. But it doesn't tell me whether they are worth watching.
