Re: things that do not add up:

Apologies if already discussed, but I've watched the film three times now and there's just one thing that still bothers me: Chastian's Murph flips the truck around, goes back to the house, is looking through her stuff, picks up the notebook, flips through the pages, and randomly exclaims, "It was yo...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

The Cabin in the Woods (2012) What the **** did I just watch and how can anyone consider this a good film? :eh: I understood that this was supposed to be some sort of clever satire of horror films but aside from a few suspenseful scenes it was nothing more than an excessively gory monstrous bore wit...

Re: Which IMAX Film Cell do you have?

Since funds are a bit tight I was going to wait to pick up a copy of Interstellar at a reduced price in the future, but the film cell inclusion on the Blu-Ray pack persuaded me. Just got back from picking one up at Costco and I'm quite pleased with what I got; Cooper looking out from behind the tess...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

By the way, most people who know a lot about movies classify visual storytelling as the peak of cinematic art. -Vader Yes I know, I don't mind the notion of "show don't tell" (something I know Nolan is oft criticized of not abiding by) and there's nothing wrong with visual storytelling, but it shou...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

Well I'm afraid directors such as PTA, Malick, and others have taken the notion of "art" as it pertains to film a bit too far. if filmmakers weren't allowed to experiment and push the boundaries of the medium, it would never evolve and we'd be stuck watching shit like this http://www.youtube.com/wa...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

I'm serious, it's not an accomplishment to create films that are so abstract and devoid of answers that people can read into them whatever the hell they want. Critics and film watchers alike give this dude waaay too much credit; I question that PTA himself even knows what the hell he's trying to sa...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

I don't know why I even bothered enduring more of this director's abstract pretentious drivel but it's one (Magnolia) two (There Will Be Blood) three strikes (The Master) you're out Mr. Paul Thomas Anderson! :P For Christ sake's learn to write a coherent story that isn't so mundane and open-ended th...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

That was the point. It's fucked up, but not as fucked up as you think. Certain businesses are cut-throat and so are people. Never under-estimate a strangers ability to cross the line or fuck people over for their own personal gain. To me Lou Bloom had a screwed up past that made him this way, no do...

Re: Best FIlms of the First Half of This Decade (2010-2014)

Nightcrawler is the best performance of his career. I just watched it actually and in some ways I agree, but the film is way too ****ed up to recommend... Now I fully understand the social commentary they aim for, especially having taken an "Understanding Media" course in college, but the film is u...
