But now that I think of it, he surprisingly doesn't have a biopic. I'd imagine one would be successful.

While I respect the hell out of MJ as a player, I'm a little tired of his myth. So, that was the sentiment of my initial post.
747370, i hope the jordan reveal is worth the wait.

747406, lmao i just read he most likely wont be in the movie at all smh.

he will be like a mythic figure looming throughout the thing.
747417, Actually makes sense to me. Makes it clear that this isn’t an

MJ movie. And to be honest, if MJ would be a supporting character (or even if a main character) it would take the audience completely out of the story seeing someone who doesn’t look and sound exactly like MJ - he’s that big of a star and personality.
747422, Yeah, there is no MJ listed on IMDB

just chiming in to say it looks like a parody trailer of a shitty movie idea (puff piece commercial for a major corporation) except that it's real

the fact it stars Damon and Affleck, directed by the latter, just adds to my dislike
747458, I'm a sucker for stories like this.
Posted by Cold Truth, Thu Feb-23-23 12:52 AM
I'm in.

I'm also curious about what looks so awful others in the post.
747776, Nothing but a feature-length ad for Nike, but it's light, snappy fun.
Posted by Frank Longo, Thu Apr-06-23 11:17 PM
Affleck and Damon doing a quasi-Sorkin riff, but with absolutely none of the criticism of large infrastructures and all of the deifying of corporate giants. Kickass soundtrack.
747779, i was surprised to see how high the scores were on imdb and rt.
Posted by Reeq, Fri Apr-07-23 07:07 AM
it looked cheap to me from the trailers but its a runaway hit with critics and audiences alike.
747785, I'll wait to watch it at home
Posted by High Society, Sat Apr-08-23 04:13 AM
but I am real interested in seeing it.
Shit - I like Affleck a lot as a director lol.

Gone Baby Gone - pretty solid flick, rewatched recently it's held up.

The Town - have seen it quite a few times, I like the action scenes. Ham & Lively kill their roles. I wish it were a bit grittier. I liked a lot of the neighborhood shots, I felt I got a good feel for Charlestown.

Argo - despite the historical liberties taken with the script, it moves at a good pace. Affleck builds tension. He picks good cinematographers to work with.. I like the way all his films look. Though I thought that Live By Night movie was real bad.

I've read this new on looks like a movie made in the 80s, almost like it's got a betamax / vhs quality to it lol.

748066, enjoyable flick.

def worth checking out.
748067, I really enjoyed it

this type of story is perfect for streaming. Cant believe it went to the big screen at all. Maybe 20 years ago but not now.
