I've owned Sony cameras for 30 years but the a7sIII is four years late. This could blow Sony out of the water in this segment.
The list misses "Singin' in the Rain" which he praised late in life to his last screenwriter. And "Blade Runner" which he deemed the most beautiful movie ever made.
Ford V Ferrari is not a superhero movie. WB and Marvel superhero movies are held to much higher standards because of their track record (no pun intended). You wouldn't judge FVF on those standards any more than you'd judge the box office of "Little Women." Also "Birds of Prey" is nearly a direct sequel to "Suicide Squad", which was an international smash with a huge opening weekend--and any sequel/spinoff that has a soft opening weekend is going to be judged a disappointment on that basis as well. That said, maybe the biggest factor in the movie's underperformance is that plenty of people knew it was coming, but a lot of those people didn't know it was coming LAST weekend. The prerelease ad campaign had a lack of urgency similar to a teaser campaign for a movie that is coming out in three to six months. I was genuinely surprised to look at a review and find, "oh, it's out already?" Also, a ton of people HATED Suicide Squad and weren't anxious for a spin-off. The world is incredibly sexist but if you only analyze Birds' underperformance through that filter, you're going to get a distorted result.
"It starts off as a normal Grown ups movie then turns into a slasher flick--but don't worry, I wont spoil the script for you." Ugh. Moron...
I love the idea of an 8k drone for two reasons. 1) Drone shooting conditions don't always allow you to grab the perfect angle but here you can pull back a bit and grab the perfect crop later. 2) There will eventually be some personal version of a large format screen (like 8k VR goggles, etc.) and the large/epic vistas drones capture are perfect "IMAX 70mm-substitute" wow footage.
A 35 year-old may look older than some 35 year-olds but it's still within a specific time frame. He/she is not going to look 16 and he/she is not going to look 65. No matter who they are and what decade they're from.There are tons of shots set in 1975 where De Niro's character should be in his late 40s/early 50s and he looks like he's in his 70s. Rationalizing that by saying they were trying to suggest the real life individual is moot and foolish.
