    Matt Damon and the Great Wall together just don't seem to work for me.
    Let us know how it was.

    not for me either.

    but the making of the movie is very interesting. it was filmed in china with both chinese and american production companies. i saw a piece on 60 mins a few months back about how these chinese production companies are chomping at the bit to make major movies that get AAA treatment and release in america now that the censorship laws over there are less strict. they want to basically cut hollywood out of the process. seems like this is the first step in that direction.

    I just saw another clip where they were talking about how much of the Hollywood money is coming from China. Its pretty crazy. They are shooting alternate scenes and changing things for the Chinese market.

    Anyone see "Arrival"? Notice which country's military leader saves the day?

    While we were touring the projection booth I could see "Great Wall" playing through the window. I was going to skip it but seeing it from the projection booth made me really want to see it.

    I actually stayed up and watched it live. I can't believe they pulled another Steve Harvey level gaffe. They gave the presenters the wrong card, but because Warren Beatty's such a confused old man, no one could tell if it was the card, or just him.

    While the La La Land people were giving their acceptance speeches, you could see the guys with the headsets in back of them, and I wasn't sure if it was a protest, or security breach, or the show was ending, or what.

    That's bigger than the Harvey gaffe.

    The La La people were pretty cool and gracious about it.

    Tell me these aren't faked again? Always suspected.

    You don't find it suspicious that somebody could read the wrong envelope for the last category of the day? There should have just been one envelope remaining -- if you subscribe to the theory of the properly counted votes and sealed envelopes that is.

    Price Waterhouse Cooper says there are backup envelopes and the duplicate Best Actress ended up in Beatty's hand.

    Or the Russians hacked it.

    Backup envelope? For what purpose? It just seems strange.

    Was that the alternative envelope?

    It doesn't seem strange to me. What if a celebrity pukes on an envelope? You just don't give that Oscar out? Or you make someone handle the pukey envelope? Why wouldn't they have backups?

    Why are they allowing sick celebrities near the envelopes prior to them being distributed? And does Hollywood not have doctors?

    How many celebrity puking incidents have been recorded to date? Is such a drastic precaution warranted for such a minuscule chance.

    Celebrities throw up because they drink. If you keep drunk celebrities away from the envelopes you can't have an awards ceremony.

    They are celebrities. They spew puke constantly.

    This statement implies they were previously faked. When?

    Note the qualifier "always suspected".
