    Fun movie, shame about the moronic ending.

    >Polly! You left the lens cap on the camera you're holding in this shot that we can all clearly see doesn't have a lens cap!
    >Polly: Oh, no! My camera which doesn't have a lense cap that I'm holding in clear view to the audience failed to capture this moment because you said it had the lens cap on!

    the movie was really strong for its opening 15-20 minutes, but then became a weird pastiche of indiana jones and other contemporary action adventure films

    This would've been good as a mini series. Shame if it was made today the whole cast will be black and gay

    > make a cool original movie with a unique asthetic
    > spend 20 million to make the movie
    > studio refuses to market your movie in any way
    > still make 60 million at box office
    > studio claims they spent 55 million on marketing so your movie was a flop and blacklists you from hollywood

      I think about how much that would suck, since he preceded avatar and trash like that, but its possible were not seeing the full picture and he was a dick.

        There's an interview where he said some people like George Lucas gave him his number and suggested they should work on something sometime. And Conran just said he did a poor job following up on those contacts. It sounds crazy, but a lot of people have a hard time selling themselves. Also look at Paul Brickman. After Risky Business, he was offered Rain Man, Forrest Gump and more, and he turned it down, and barely ever worked in Hollywood again. He basically said he regrets not doing more with his career. Some of this is performance anxiety. They're afraid to fail, so they turn down big opportunities that they perceive could end up as spectacular failures.

        Obviously it's possible but studios do this shit all the time. If they want something to make money so they can justify making more like it, they have to trash other projects to balance their books to avoid taxes. So they "pay" themselves and a complex network of shell companies and kickback agencies for "marketing", write off the expenses, claim a loss, then keep the money.
        According to tax filings, no major hollywood studios have turned a profit since 1997. Yet they're still in business. Funny how that works.

      it is crazy that beatty made this and never did anything remotely similar stylistically. it was just that whole tim burton batman era and they ripped him off.

    is there a "punk" for taking the internet/social media technology to its extreme, or would it still fall under cyberpunk?

      Internet by itself is still cyberpunk. I guess if you want to focus more on social media it could be "Parasocialpunk"

      I wouldn't call myself a fan of steam punk, but I will say it's the healthiest way to prepare punk.
