Interstellar is a fucking trainwreck of a movie right down to the fact that it should have been called Intergalactic being as they're traveling between galaxies not stars.

I could write a book on how fucking stupid this movie is, and I'm a die hard sci-fi buff.

It's the Nu Star Wars of Sci-Fi.

Scorsese went the way of Spielberg and hasn't made a good film in 20 years.

Fellini movies are hyped up garbage compared to real italian neorealism.

I will never rewatch Heat. What a boring piece of garbage.

Now douse me in the praise that I deserve.
>>
>>99815354
>didn't read the book
The book is shallow. The book has a message. The movie displays the subject matter in a semi-detached, playful way. Its one of the great adaptations of commercial Hollywood and it should be revered in that context.

LOTR is best the first two times you watch it. After that, the flaws become impossible to ignore. The third movie is sustained entirely by a cast who was 110% in love with the project and bonded like a family. They performed amazingly well together with no clue as to how shitty the final product would look.

It’s an attempt to capture unstylized reality. Of course, that’s impossible cause art will always be stylized but they try as hard as possible to give you a sense of verosimilitud. You could see something like Umberto D then watch one of Rosselini’s historic films like Socrates to see what i mean.

Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon are style over substance trash. His earlier less pretentious works are way more impressive.

No. Manchildren are the ones who criticize it for deviating from the books or for having female characters of note. (Ironically, the infamous "I am no man" was the opening to a little soliloquy in the book and reduced to a mere single line for the film, yet the incels still cry about feminism).

I wouldn't go that far. It's a decent movie though.

There was also an abortion of a TV series in the 70s called Starlost which was also set on a space ark after an onboard apocalypse. Harlan Ellison created it initially and disowned it after seeing the pilot. It reminds me of Pandorum meets old Star Trek.

A.I. is completely faithful to Kubrick's original vision and he himself entrusted its completion to Spielberg, who was a close friend. Some of the most "Spielberg" moments that people blame on Spielberg are actually in the original treatment by Kubrick.

Its like the best film review this overly emotional cripple ever made:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5rTHfnWPig
>>
>>99818628
I have a feeling you were pretty young when you saw LotR and haven't seen it as an adult. Watch the cavalry charge in RotK, shed a tear at the king's speech, and then cringe to the bottom of your soul when they cut to the CGI scenes.

This isn't being tryhard. Those overhead shots ruin what could have been the greatest fantasy combat scene ever. That's the worst example but it's a phenomenon that gets twice as bad with each successive film, as the scenes get bigger and Jackson's ambition outstripped both his budget and abilities.
>>
>>99816927
Ideally, they shouldn't even have visuals.
>>
>>99818861
I'd give almost anything to be a part of that charge. How great it would be to know that you would die for something so noble and good.
>>
>>99818856
Spielberg stayed true to Kubrick's notes, something Kubrick himself never did. He was always rewriting his ideas up until the last minute so what Spielberg made was a version of a possibly unfinished vision, frozen in time. Also the original author Brian Aldiss said it was "a shitty movie".

Despite any of this I happen to like it. The CGI/live action merger is impeccable, especially considering the year it was made.

the closest tarantino ever got to making a good film was Jackie Brown and it was still shite.

Well if you lived in NZ and owned a horse you could at least have been in a movie of it. They advertised for anyone with a horse to show up and I think like 100 or more came. Over half the Brohirrim riders were women with fake beards.

I just watched AotC twice. It has some awful dialogue, but this is only at moments. It doesn't have any long, boring slogs like a 20-minute podracing sequence.

I'm telling you, watch attack of the clones. it is laughably incompetent
>>99819565
>le one boring scene
the entirety of both films are criminally boring, so I don't see your point.

It's really rough to criticize because all the flaws that apply to the first movie apply to the second movie, so it makes it sound like moot comparison but they are just so much worse in AotC. Everything about the movie is wrong.

I don't see anyone live streaming themselves watching attack of the clones because they know it will be painful as fuck.

Bookfags hate it because "it wasn't a good adaptation of the source material" which doesn't make sense to me because anyone who has read the first few books should have realized that you CANNOT adapt every little aspect of the story in the first place. It was good because it didn't try to be an explicit adaptation and instead went more for visuals/atmosphere which I think Lynch did brilliantly. Denny is going to attempt a more direct literal adaptation and therefore it is going to fail/suck dick I'm afraid.

battle scenes will always be boring shit in movies.

whether its star wars or lotr. a million faceless ships/soldiers isn't exciting no matter how much money you put into the cgi. No matter how good the choreography is, its still boring bullshit.

All of Villeneuves films are a case of bad script, decent director. Some are way worse though like Prisoners

gangsters are garbage. Godfather, Scarface, and whatever similar trash is for mentally ill degenerates.

I didn't like the series at all. I can't get over the shit casting. The series sort of "misses the point" in my eyes but it is what it is. It is not comparable to the film in any way and I don't like it so make of that what you will.

I suspect I won't like it as much as the movie. A large part of what I love is the style of it.

Annihilation is unironically one of the best sci-fi movies this last generation.

Brick is extreme noir kino.

Infinity War was entertaining, but actually a bad movie.

Eraserhead is creepier than most actual modern horror movies.

All films can be summed by this picture. They exist in a state of qualitative limbo. All films are good and bad at the same time. It all depends on your own capacity to walk around the circle and see it from another perspective. When you understand this, it opens completely new avenues for cinema experience. Letting go of the position that only your movies are patrician and others are shit, you not only see movies in a ying yang way, you become it.
I don't know how controversial this opinion is, but I'd think it goes against the grain pretty hard here.

also ,kubrick is an overrated hack and famous only because he was the first comtemporary turboautist in the age of normies and people mistook it for "misunderstood creative genius".

Red Letter Media and it's creativity-stifling view on what Star Wars is can fuck off, and I'm glad that people who saw the prequels first will outlive those who saw the originals first.
TFA is the worst star wars film. JJ admits they had no plan, no direction, so I guess they figured they'd just remake ANH.... And the RLM dicksuckers ate it right up.

>>99818856
>A.I. is completely faithful to Kubrick's original vision and he himself entrusted its completion to Spielberg, who was a close friend. Some of the most "Spielberg" moments that people blame on Spielberg are actually in the original treatment by Kubrick.

You're not contrarian, you're right. It's just that everyone else is wrong.

Find out who you are and live with minimal outside influence.

But people see everyone following Tyler Durden around in the movie, acting like Tyler Durden and so they want to act like him too. But the message wasn't "don't be a cog at work" it was "don't be a cog period."Yet people mimick Durden even though that's what he is preaching against.
>>
>>99821010
Kubrick is overrated to me as a director, writer, producer.

However, he is genuinely good as a photographer.

2001 was filmed in 70mm film, one of the few that were ever done in that time.

Do you want to guess when that film was made?

No, it wasn't early 1980s or late 1970s as most people assume.

It's fucking 1968.

That's the magic of 70mm and good photography, in an age of shitty blurry 35mm.

Fight Club is a perfect litmus test for idiots who think the movie is about "le rebelution" but dont realize the book and the movie are critiques of toxic masculinity

genuinely think Hitchcock is overrated. I can understand why his movies are so popular though, I'm not surprised by it. I just don't share the same passion for his stuff as most people

I'm afraid you're misconstruing what I said, I'm not saying there are no bad films, I said all films are bad & good. When people state that "this film is perfect, that one is bad", they break the fusion of definitions in exchange for anchoring themselves to a static opinion. I guess it's normal to find comfort in grounded opinions, that's probably why many people have this strong penchant for "the correct interpretation" of a film or "there has to be an explanation". I mainly try to enjoy films, be the subject matter whatever.
