Trivia

Diego Luna's character Ray says "there has been an awakening". This exact quote is said by Supreme Leader Snoke in Star Wars The Force Awakens (2015). Diego Luna plays Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), connecting him to the Star Wars universe, and this coincidental use of the quote. See more »

What Ever Happened To Original Ideas?
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's just depressing for a movie lover like me to see a film like Joel Schumacher's 1990 Flatliners remade. Why? Can anyone come out with something we haven't seen before or at least from a fresh new POV. Somebody told me that my reaction is "generational" - I fear that's true. It makes me feel really old. I almost walked out of Mother!, the other day - something I've never done - because I felt treated like a moron. To steal from Robert Polanski to do what, what? Here is even worse. They're stealing from Joel Schumacher without having any of the...what was it that the 1990 had that this one hasn't? Well let's say that the first one wasn't a remake. Where are the mavericks? The new ones. The ones I love are in their 70's or gone. I do apologize I'm just venting my frustration. Thank you for indulging me.
