It may be a little while until we see a 2023 release but this is the thread for discussion of the films released this year. Anyone have any upcoming films that they're really looking forward to?

I haven't seen any 2023 movies yet, but I'm thinking about checking out M3GAN. I hadn't been interested in seeing it, but I've seen some reviews and the more I hear about the movie, the more interesting it looks. It's actually getting really good reviews, which doesn't always matter of course, but I wasn't expecting this movie to get good reviews.

I?m not sure when I?ll venture out to see another new movie.  The last Batman and James Bond films were major disappointments.  That plus Showcase Cinemas in Revere having closed down are big deterrents.  Maybe the next Star Trek, if there is one and/or Star Wars.

I watched the new horror movie called Sick last week. In the US it's an original movie for the Peacock streaming service. It is cowritten by Kevin Williamson, who wrote Scream. The movie does feel like Scream in some ways. It takes place in April 2020 as everything is shutting down from the pandemic. Two girls quarantine at a log cabin, and end up being hunted by a killer. It's only around 83 minutes, so it doesn't waste much time getting into it. I'd recommend if you like slashers.

Is Peacock available in other countries?

I watched M3GAN the other day and that was a lot of fun. It's a thriller with some humor. I watched the theatrical version and am going to check out the unrated version soon, which I believe with just be slightly different, maybe showing a bit more blood.

I saw Air and I thought it was a fine film. Between it and Top Gun Maverick, the everything-is-possible attitude of the 1980s films seems to be in vogue lately. American Dream lives on, but matured.

I enjoyed the first three John Wick movies but haven't seen the new one yet. I watched the first two shortly before the third one came out, so then I did go see that one at the theater. But I'll wait for streaming or something for Chapter 4.

I went to Mission: Impossible--Dead Reckoning Part One, and it is another really solid entry to the franchise. Looking forward to Part Two.

I saw the new slasher Thanksgiving yesterday and enjoyed it a lot. The idea for this started way back when Grindhouse came out in 2007. Grindhouse was a double feature from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Between their two movies were fake horror movie trailers made by Eli Roth and Rob Zombie (at least those were two of them). Roth's trailer was for Thanksgiving. So now after all these years, he's made the movie. It's funny and gruesome.

Maybe we'll get Rob Zombie's werewolf movie made for real.

Thanksgiving does look good, I?ll definitely give it a go

I watched the first 3 John Wick films and really enjoyed them but thought 4 was a let down. Nowhere
near as much fun, more like watching a video game..

I saw Godzilla Minus One yesterday and this is one of the best movies I've seen for 2023. I've enjoyed the American Godzilla movies from the last several years, but the Japanese movies just hit differently. I think this one is up with the best of them all.

I was glad to see my local theater got this. I wasn't aware how wide its release would be since it's in Japanese with English subtitles.

Priscilla
 
Starring Cailee Spaeney & Jacob Elordi
 
Premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in Italy on September 4, 2023 and in America at the New York Film Festival on October 6, 2023
 
Boring?Bland?Blah.
 
The first thing I noticed is how much taller Elordi is at 6?5? than Elvis was at 6?.  Dale Midkiff was also a little taller at 6?2? in the television movie version of this in 1988, Elvis & Me.  Otherwise, Jacob was passable in his portrayal as The King.  The love story just doesn?t come across convincingly and that?s the biggest problem with this film.  Their relationship was better portrayed in Baz Luhrmann?s Elvis biopic from 2022.  If Austin Butler and Olivia DeJonge reprised their roles as Elvis & Priscilla, respectively, this movie would?ve turned out better.
