Is everyone looking forward to the new film 'The Great Wall'?


#1

I know I am, not sure why, but it looks really good :slight_smile:
should we all meet up and go to it? :slight_smile:


#2

I love films where a western man goes to another part of the world and saves it.

They’re good for my delicate self esteem and fill the yearning longing to be a colonial overlord.


#3

It does look quite good though


#4

I personally am not


#5

I haven’t heard of it.


#6

No, but I do fancy a trip to Barcelona or Florence for some reason… Probably not from Luton though


#7

From the trailer it looks like someone loved the shit out of Helm’s Deep and decided to just make a movie of that.


#8

Chinese folk legends owe everything to tolkien tbh


#9

Well why else is there a white guy there?

#11

yeah, I’m quite looking forward to it- it looks like the stupidest thing ever and I’ve enjoyed the Zhang Yimou films I’ve seen


#12

Fuck white ppl


#13

I saw the film a couple of weeks ago and this is almost exactly what I thought. Replace elves with hot Chinese spear ladies and dwarves with gruff Chinese sword men, put Matt Damon as a big hobbit and sprinkle with the colour co-ordinated military displays of Hero or whatever.

It would be reasonably entertaining if it had a decent villain, but it doesn’t so it’s not even especially bad, just nothing.


#14

Dont think a wall can ever be great really


#15

It’s obviously completely shit


#16

One ping pong legend begs to differ.


#17

The Shit Wall.


#18
