    festival in Toronto

    At a film festival in Toronto в in the program "Special presentations" there will be "Manchester by the sea". It is interesting Matt will take part? There are producers on festivals?

    He would probably attend, depending on his schedule.

    Reviews

    In some reviews I met the reference to Matt's words about the weapon. I cease to read such reviews. Whether it is necessary to say that all of them give to the movie a low mark. It is clear now why such rating, it has the remote relation to quality of the movie. Many critics are in advance prejudiced.
    The first response of the viewer on IMBD is indicative. 8 lines, but words about the movie. But he have given to the movie 1 star.

    RE: The Great Wall

    Great visuals, as you would expect from Yimou, but hopefully the music for the full trailer is better.

    Fallon wasn't as silly and fumbling as he normally is during the interview segment. Thanks to Matt's charm, mostly. It was not even painful to watch. Lol.

    JASON BOURNE

    *****
    Just attended a Producers Guild of America WEST Pre-Release Screening of Jason Bourne.
    No spoilers here but all I'll say is EXCELLENT!!! You won't be disappointed and it'll leave you wanting more!! Edge of your seat action, brutal fight scenes, several scenes and prop elements of the story pay homage to scenes and activities we've seen before, only now with new earnestness. The stakes are higher, life's been rough on Bourne but the beast emerges with just as much energy, keenness, and ability to out smart. All he's ever wanted is "a different way".

    Renner's "Legacy" was merely an imitation, "Jason Bourne" is a true continuation.

    Frank Marshal has re-tweeted the Rolling Stone review a few times:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/jason-bourne-movie-review-w430923

    All this may seem achingly familiar to those who've seen the other Bourne movies. For me, drowning in the pixelated muddle of most summer movies (Warcraft marking the lowest point), the realism is a distinct pleasure. Greengrass doesn't stoop to hollow digital dazzle to jazz an audience. Long, fluid takes emphasize action that reveals character. Through it all, Damon keeps us glued to the war going on inside Bourne's head. It's a brilliantly implosive performance; he owns the role and the movie. It's a tense, twisty mindbender anchored by something no computer can generate: soul.

    Late Late Show with James Cordon - UK TV Viewers can now watch it

    just to let any UK Sky TV viewers in UK know that you can now watch this show on download only on sky tv. Shows are about 1 day behind original air time in US but you get the full show. You can't put a series link in though as its download only which is annoying but at least we are now getting the shows. S1 Ep 2 has Julia Styles but ive not watched it yet so not sure if its Bourne talk.

    I'm super excited for The Great Wall, but unfortunately there's backlash from people, especially the Tumblr community. Blasting Matt and Pedro Pascal. I know there is problems addressing diversity. I like to see both sides of story (i.e. what do Chinese people from China think about the Great Wall, etc.)

    Great Wall

    It's being painted with the "whitewashing" brush, which is entirely illogical, as it is a joint Chinese/US coproduction in which the Chinese are using American actors in an attempt both to increase western understanding of their culture and to explore ways of increasing their market reach. People are such mindless automatons sometimes, particularly in the Twitter-age of instantaneous non-reflection.

    Re: Great Wall

    And they knew this was coming as this was the reaction to the first review (later claimed to be fake but may have been real). Did they need to release it today?
    From: (Anonymous) Date: July 28th, 2016 11:29 pm (UTC) (Link)

    RE: Re: Great Wall

    I don't think it is viewed the same way in China. As a Chinese American myself I do check Chinese news and sm occasionally and I do not think this is an issue. But many people do not like the fact some pop stars appear in the movie and think they kind of cheapen the movie because they are not really actors.

    Re: Great Wall

    Exactly. They're timing it to Bourne but didn't think about the consequences (or current thinking, which they should have realised). Pedro has tweeted the trailer a few times.

    RE: Re: Great Wall

    We know from previous comments that the studio is leery of it. Obviously they have spent almost nothing to advertise it. I guess putting out the trailer during Matt's Bourne tour is the cheapest publicity they can get. (?) It would be great if it was a surprise hit. I remain intrigued, for Matt and for Yimou.

    I brave Twitter to get a sample of the Bourne reaction, and see only tweets about Great Wall, including this defence by Forbes:

    His four daughters (with Damon's equally personable and very cool wife Lucy) have finally seen dad on screen. "'The Martian' was the first one I let them see. I watched it with them. I don't know if he's closest to me. I'm certainly no botanist," says Damon.
