The first paragraph from Indiewire's The Mountain Between Us review is pretty good

http://www.indiewire.com/2017/09/the...et-1201881379/

“The Mountain Between Us” is one of those movies that’s impossible to watch without imagining the elevator pitch that got the project off the ground (yes, it was adapted from a Charles Martin novel of the same name, but someone still had to sell Hollywood on the idea). “It’s ‘The Grey’ meets ‘The English Patient’!” “It’s ‘Alive’ meets ‘Before Sunrise’!” “It’s ‘Cast Away,’ but if Tom Hanks was a little horny for Wilson!” Amusingly billed as a “romance-disaster” on the film’s Wikipedia page, Hany Abu-Assad’s dreary but diverting high-altitude epic is a “will they or won’t they?” flirtation superimposed onto a classic story of survival. It’s fantastically unrealistic stuff from the first minute to the last (and there are far too many minutes between them), but Idris Elba and Kate Winslet generate enough heat to keep the frostbite at bay, and Mandy Walker’s stunning location cinematography ensures that the film looks considerably more authentic than it feels.

You like Before Sunrise Bronson. You know what you have to do.

Saw Battle of the Sexes now that it finally went wide, was a fun little period piece. Need to rewatch the original Blade Runner before 2049 next weekend.

I loved IT. I think some people just get turned off by the jumps in emotion. Scary to sweet to funny to scary to funny to sweet it just rubs some people wrong.

Can we talk about how The LEGO Ninjago Movie has 13 credited writers between screenplay and story credits?

We haven't received any updated international numbers, but I think that the Chinese run died too quickly to make $890M likely. On opening weekend, it seemed like $140M in China could possibly happen. But the run quickly collapsed, and its final total will be around $115M instead. It will pass $880M, but remain slightly behind Spider-Man 3 both domestically and overseas.

Kingsman's doing pretty much identical numbers to the first. Considering the higher budget, marketing, and cast, it's probably a disappointment for them.

American Made's budget is $50 million but they marketed the hell out of it.

I think this is a break-even scenario with that opening and the international take.

It'll still probably make 320 to 350 million dollars, 300 million being the lowest I can see. Enough to get a sequel but probably not enough for that Statesmen spin off.

I feel like Idris is more along the lines of Sam Jackson where he just feels like he has to be working, and therefore will pick a script among the list of movies he has on the table when he doesn't have a project, no matter if all the movies on the table aren't very good.

I think it clocked in just under two hours but the shit felt like three. They could have shaved off half an hour and it wouldn’t have made much difference to the “story.”

Things will probably look different with the actuals (I think that American Made is overpredicting Sunday), but this could be the smallest #1-3 gap ever where all three films are above $10M.

There were some really small gaps in the 80s and 90s, but those were on weekends of $3-4M.

It's another horror film with less story than the cold open of your average Supernatural episode.

And it's Warner Bros.' own fault, really. Their thirst for franchises has gotten the better of them, first with the DCEU and now with Lego.

The main thing is that they pulled the NSMB mistake by releasing two Lego films in the same year that are very similar to each other in theme and beats (hence the accusations that the brand is growing stale). If The Lego Ninjago Movie was remarkably very different from the past films, this wouldn't be too much of a problem, but from what I've heard / talked to someone who's a fan of the original show but didn't like the movie, they brought in a ton of people who changed a lot from the show the film's based on to make it more similar to the Lego theatrical films. The six main characters, for example, go to school in the film (they didn't in the TV show), and have a different set of voice actors.

Lego Ninjago Movie's credentials list three directors, five producers, and seven writers overall (five for story, seven for screenplay). Only two of those writers came from the TV series, and they only worked on the screenplay. Lego Movie and Lego Batman Movie had significantly less directors/producers/writers on their projects. A perfect example of too many cooks spoiling the soup.
