I don't know the plot of Hateful 8 but when you say The Thing does that suggest it's got a horror aspect to it or just Kurt Russell with a beard?

It could have been a similar squabble which was resolved prior to release and I didn't hear about at the time.
I think the chain was Odeon in that particular case - it seems so long ago now haha

I was not aware that there was a Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel coming out this year. Chances of my local cinema getting this one is very very slim. Really looking forward to it really enjoy the first one.

I like Tarantino think he very talented, just not been keen on any of his films since Kill bill. But always look forward to watching his films tho.
And each to their own, im sure i like films you dont
Mb films i havent took or enjoyed one of his films even Bad boys or armageddon.
Find the films are more crash bang wallop style which is ok but thin on interest and plot.
I rather watch a slow film that done well with good story and atmopshere than a film thats got loads of action but dull as hell, that goes to any film not just MB films, ive seen films where have tonnes of action and been bored senseless.

Have you had the chance to catch the two Ip Man films, Nordi? There is a third part coming out this year with none other than "Iron" Mike Tyson playing the villain.

A lot of cinemas are boycotting it apparently. The plan was to release it simultaneously in theatres and on Netflix, a few cinema chains are angry that Netflix are ignoring the 'theatrical window', in other words they're concerned about the profit margin.

Shame as I'd love to see it in IMAX.

This mirrors what I was saying about Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Disney wanted to cash in on a big holiday and forfeit the window, which I believe is 12 weeks or something. I think they (Disney) won that one in the end because it was a case of take this film or don't get offered any others.

I doubt that Netflix have muscles as big as Disney so they will probably lose out...
