Coppola is 84. May very well be the last completed film. (of course, he will now go on to make films through age 100)

Quote:
Megalopolis is expected to be released in 2024 and will star Adam Driver in the lead role of Caesar, an architect eager to build a utopia out of New York City.
...the director funded Megalopolis himself, there's a lot of risk associated with the project. However, Coppola has been trying to get this film made for 40 years and seems to care more about its message than the potential for success

Hah. Well, maybe he needs a "passion" project like this one. Sometimes, I can appreciate a movie or other production for all the effort that went into it, even if I really don't enjoy it.

I don't think he has made anything in decades (well wine I guess.) But, he has been pretty quite since the early 2000s I think.

HIs filmography has been a bit sparse for a while.

They rereleased Dune Part One in theaters this weekend before Part Two comes out next month.

I had only watched it once when it originally came out. Figured I should refresh my memory before Part Two so I went and saw it in IMAX last night and liked it so much better than the first time.

Afterwards they showed an extended clip from Part Two (Paulís first time riding a sandworm) and it was so well done it gave me chills.

A lot of fans of the books were really disappointed with the earlier attempts at bringing Dune to the screen. Glad these versions seem to be working.

I was just browsing YouTube and this came up. Itís the exact preview they showed last night. Not the same experience watching it on YouTube compared to IMAXÖ

My son, generally not a huge movie buff, raves about "Killers of the Flower Moon," saying I need to see it.

Watched Wonka with the wife. We shrugged a bit at first, but after 20 mins or so, suspended disbelief and enjoyed it for what it was.
Better that the Johnny Depp offering and when watched as though it were a stage play, it hit the mark.
Not exactly intellectual. So bite me $:o)

A couple of catchy tunes.
