    Winter Movie Preview

    When JE posts the Winter movie poll...I'm voting for this one. This looks like hilarious fun.

    I kinda like the idea of using the same characters with new personalities in each movie. I'm sure a movie like this is a ton of fun for the actors!

    It's not a remake, it's a reboot, and it's totally worth checking out. You won't regret it.
    It lets the first movie still stand on its own as it is a different story, only tied together by the fact that people are stuck in the game.

    Totally agree, it's just a really fun movie with a lot of action and laughs. I don't want to like The Rock as an actor, but it's hard not to.

    Admit it...you are mesmerized by his "Smoldering Intensity".

    Dr. Sleep trailer... not sure whether it will be a contender in our poll, but this looks like a very solid sequel to The Shining.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I felt the same way but was happy and relieved that it was a fitting sequel to the original. It doesnít diminish the first one and builds a modern take on the Jumanji game.

    I will be curious to see if that scene goes from funny to dramatic. I wonder if it turns out that The Rock's Devito is having a stroke.

    Question for the masses... we have this debate every year... when should we start and when should we finish our winter movie contest?

    Do we start in October? If so, we include Joker, Maleficent 2, Gemini Man, Jexi, and Zombieland 2. All of those could be contenders.

    Do we extend into February? If so, we include Birds of Prey, Kingsmen 3, and Fantasy Island.

    We generally exclude October and include February. Including Feb has given us films like Black Panther, How to Train Your Dragon 3, and a couple Lego Movies. But, excluding October meant we missed out on A Star is Born and Venom last year, both of which would have made the contest a lot of fun.

    The way I look at it, there are more contenders in October than February this year so I think we should go Oct-Nov-Dec-Jan for this year's contest. Maybe we allow Birds of Prey (which opens Feb 7th) but not the rest of the stuff that month (frankly, none of the others are real contenders... maybe Kingsman 3).

    I want opinions, people!

    Also, just for edification, here are some of the contenders we will be voting on for Nov-Dec-Jan:

    Star Wars 9, Jumanji 2, Terminator Dark Fate, Bad Boys For Life, Frozen 2, Ford vs. Ferrari, Cats, Knives Out, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Charlie's Angels, and the Voyage of Dr. Doolittle.

    It is a more wide open contest than usual, IMO. Sure, there are a couple/few mortal locks but the field is wide after those flicks and at least 2 spots will be up for grabs.

    Could be, but won't be. I could see M2 making it since it's Disney, but not the others. Not a big fan of including out of the season, but if someone wants to take the chance, then go for it.
    FYI, M1 made 241 mil, with weak ratings. It also was a Summer release though, and being that M2 is not taking advantage of a holiday release, it would be a huge risk.

    See, this is why I think we should include October, because I think at least one of those films absolutely would be a strong contender if included. In fact, I am fairly confident at least 1 October release will make more than $200 mil in boxoffice (I'm just not sure which one) this year.

    I'd like to include Birds of Prey, because I'd like to vote for it because I try to vote for movies I'd like to see.


    I'm thinking SW9 might top the next 4 combined. At least the next 3.

    Bad Boys For Life - aka Bad Boys with Walkers?

    Not a winter movie, but I thought I would drop this in here.

    Hustlers is like a visit to a strip club... tantalizing, but ultimately disappointing. So says Atlanta Film Critics Circle member Jason Evans in his latest 100 Word Review.

    What a wasted opportunity for use of the word "titillating"! Isn't bad wordplay like one of the first things covered in Film Criticism 101?

    Sorry, I took the course that taught, "don't make obvious puns," instead.

    Moderating DBR must be murder...

    Even in the movie thread, I'm too chicken to suggest a "Murder Most Fowl," I'll just duck for cover.

    I'll vote to include October. But I don't really care or know that much about movies, so I'm good with whatever.
