Can't think of a single thing I would change.

Re: Controversial opinions about movies

Off topic from the main discussion, but I just want to stress: The Prestige is Christopher Nolan's best film. It amazes me how I can watch one scene from it and still get so much from it. I really need to watch it again and analyze it more. It's absolutely my favorite. Here's an unnecessarily lengt...

Re: Controversial opinions about movies

I liked Warrior but it's a bit predictable and I didn't think it was as good as The Fighter, or Creed or Rocky 1 & 2, or Raging Bull. I love The Fighter, and Russell's work generally, but that one just didn't resonate with me the same. Creed was very enjoyable, and finally, when he tells us his mot...

Re: Controversial opinions about movies

I was originally going to write "Warrior>Raging Bull" but I didn't have the balls to be that controversial even in the controversy thread.

...But to answer your question in a word: Yes.

Re: Controversial opinions about movies

I've never really liked ET that much. Back a few pages people talked about how much we like PTA, Tarantino, Fincher, and Dvill. I agree on all fronts, though I feel like I SHOULD like PTA more than I actually do. I'm always underwhelmed after watching one of his films, yet somehow I think about them...

Re: Nolan's Best Film?

It's certainly my FAVORITE. As for best….it's a toss-up between Inception, TDK, Memento, and the Prestige. Can I hear your explanation why? I'm just curious. Sorry about the slow reply! You can make a case for Memento because of how different it is, and the fact that he made such a profound film so...

Re: 88th Academy Awards

That's a great line-up! Whether or not you like them as individuals, Russell and Tarantino are very interesting to listen to. Boyle is fine, Scott is chill, Hooper is whatever, and AGI is awesome.

Re: The Christopher Nolan Appreciation Thread

They're about as out of shape as I am Nolan put on a few, but looks pretty good. Quentin on the other hand is gaining some el-bees. Anyway this is super cool. Nolan has spoken more than once about how important Tarantino (and to a less extent, Lars Von Trier) was in the 90s, and surely likes most o...

Re: Who will be the cinematographer?

I thought Spectre had a few VERY impressive moments, visually. The rest of it seemed very minimal. Could be Mendes' decision. [shrug]

I absolutely agree. Episode 3, though flawed, get's grouped in with 1 and 2 and it's a disservice to what is actually a very good movie.
