NolanFans' Collective Diary: Live Free or Collect Hard

Yeah, so, I'm hitting the trail, y'all. To those with whom I had really engaging, fun conversations, many thanks (hit me up via PM if you wanna stay in touch).

Coolest Directors

Uh, this would be the Vincent Gallo who's on record as making a whole bunch of unappealing comments about blacks and Jews, yes? Not what I'd call "coolest", let alone self-deprecating or inspiring. And, post- Brown Bunny , I'm sure we'd all prefer not to think about him fucking. He's often misquote...

Coolest Directors

Most directors listed here purely from idolising their film making, but hanging around with them -- hearing and reading their interviews - -would be just excruciating. Their vacuum of personality boring. How about some with a force of personality. Guys who have a real human capacity: film making, f...

Recommend-Me-A-Movie-Topic

The Young Poisoner's Handbook, Curdled, A Shock to the System, After Hours, Vampire's Kiss , Office Killer, I Love You Philip Morris and Chopper would all fit your bill, I reckon. :lol: :lol: You think so? Yes, I do. It's a black comedy about an awful, pompous yuppie going murderously insane, and C...

Recommend-Me-A-Movie-Topic

Can anyone think of a hyper, stylistic (almost dark comedy) films? Think something like Bronson or American Psycho ; something dark but somehow funny. The Young Poisoner's Handbook, Curdled, A Shock to the System, After Hours, Vampire's Kiss, Office Killer, I Love You Philip Morris and Chopper woul...

You brought up the film's fan service. I responded with what I thought of that particular aspect.

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

I do not want fan service. I do not want, or need, filmmakers who condescend to me, who assume that if they toss in a moment or a line or a character that I recognize, I'll be so damned grateful that I'll be willing to overlook their lack of effort elsewhere. If I wish to watch the aforementioned S...

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

To be fair, both posters quite liked or even loved the 2009 Star Trek. -Vader Which is ridiculous, considering how this time round you get even more fan service. There's this whole layer that goes side by side with another Star Trek classic and I was astonished how well they pulled it off, it made ...

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

Memo to Damon Lindelof: If you're going to crib or riff off a classic, robust film with iconography and key moments, make damn sure the film you're making hits roughly the same mark. I finally realised that I was a Trekkie while watching STID, purely due to the amount of times I was shaking my head...
