I never thought the reviews would be so good for The Eternals,
There’s no review. Twitter reactions are not reviews. Review will drop on Sunday. And Marvel movies received better reactions for the record. Shang Chi about 2 months earlier did.
I’m getting very concerned about House of Gucci. It’s release date isn’t so far off yet MGM have done such little promotion or campaigning for it. I know it’s Bond but it feels like there’s been more campaigning for No Time to Die than this!
NTTD is doing poorly in USA so that may be the reason. Not for the lack of marketing but becasue Bond has never been an American thing at least not in the way it’s international. But MGm may feel they need to amplify the marketing push. Which won’t help.October 20, 2021 at 9:58 am #1204528270
Don’t get me wrong, I quite like Marvel movies! And I’m certainly interested in seeing how Eternals goes. But they’re simply not going to give Best Picture to a Marvel movie–if it didn’t happen for Black Panther, it’s not going to happen.
All is good. I was joking cause yesterday was quite rough for Eternals given the “mixed-baggy” sentiment among those who saw it, those 4 pundits trashing it off twitter, and Ruimy calling it a stinker. And then today we have Kevin himself or Kevin impersornator or just some Marvel megastan going breezily “everything is sunny and Eternals is winning!”. And you going “What?” without sugarcoating it. 🙂October 20, 2021 at 11:38 am #1204528490

Lol. It’s not doing poorly in the United States. It just failed to meet expectations. It’s still doing better than Casino Royale and all the Bond movies before the Craig era and even better than all the Mission Impossible movies with their over the top action. So how can you say it’s doing poorly? It’s just because Skyfall ridiculously overperformed at the box office due to all the hype around that film leading to the industry expecting the follow up films to match Skyfall which didn’t happen for both Spectre and No Time To Die.October 20, 2021 at 12:10 pm #1204528534

That’s doing poorly for a movie that cost 300M.
Also, doing better than Casino Royale, a movie from 2006. Gee, how impressive…not.
It’s not doing what they thought it would. Studios want expectations exceeded, or at least met. NTTD didn’t do either in its still biggest market.October 20, 2021 at 12:18 pm #1204528551
New trailer for Belfast:
My username is an acronym of “Quiet On Set! Lights, Camera, Action.” 🎥October 20, 2021 at 12:40 pm #1204528595
All those shots look sooooo staged!October 20, 2021 at 12:47 pm #1204528612
My personal feelings about Belfast haven’t changed with this new trailer. Catriona Balfe and Ciaran Hinds look like they’ll give really good performances and Jamie Dornan is incredibly hot but the rest of it looks… underwhelming.
"The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.October 20, 2021 at 12:53 pm #1204528626
Judging by that trailer, it seems they are shifting to Hinds as their main supporting actor push tbh.
Anyway, the whole thing looks Oscar-y af. It’s like the “gentile” type of film that everybody put in their top 3 in their ballots, no matter what.October 20, 2021 at 12:54 pm #1204528628

Again, I think so much of the buzz around Belfast is because it’s the kind of movie that’s SUPPOSED to win Oscars: a period piece, a coming of age story, shot in black and white, moony-eyed and innocent and in love with The Movies. It’s the safe choice, but I think conventional wisdom doesn’t always land: it’s like how people assumed Mank would win last year because Hollywood loves movies about movies.October 20, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1204528698
How come so many of the RT scores for movies coming out in the next few days are going down (“Dune”, “The French Dispatch”, “Last Night in Soho”, god even “The Power of the Dog” went down a little)? Do shitty dissatisfied critics write their reviews later?October 20, 2021 at 1:55 pm #1204528711
Rotten Tomatoes is an aggregate, which means, as it gathers more data (reviews) on a particular film, it starts to average out. It’s very hard to maintain a very high or very low score.October 20, 2021 at 2:15 pm #1204528731
Belfast looks lovely. Nothing special, but cute.October 20, 2021 at 2:18 pm #1204528734
I can see Focus twisting the narrative a little bit and talking about “finding your heart and being close to your family in difficult times” (aka moments like the pandemic or war) to push Belfast.
And I think it’s gonna work. “A movie for the soul in this dark present”. lolNot now
