General Movie Discussion 3.0
Relevant Wachowski things: http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/netflix-chief-says-4-hour-cut-of-...
It is a good movie. It's visually like Dune + Fifth Element + 40k + The Fountain.
Definitely has its faults, definitely glad it got made. I appreciate what it's trying to be even if it's not fully there.
Can I ask who's review you pasted?
Did anyone watch John Wick yet? Beautiful action movie.
accidently replied to davo, didn't mean to.
Just watched 'Citizenfour'. Holy fucking shit.
Everybody needs to watch it.
I hereby nominate "The Voices" for best credits of all time. Someone please confirm.
Do not ruin them by watching it without watching the movie first.
Edit: John Wick was fun as shit.
Nightcrawler was awesome. How did Gyllenhaal not even get nominated? How does that happen?
Birdman was incredible. I went into this not knowing anything. About 6 minutes in, I realized they hadn't cut yet. Then they did it again and again. Holy shit. There is no way this doesn't win best cinematography.
Whiplash is next.
First round of film festivals I'm submitting my two films to. My first film 'The Blanketing' was already accepted into about 10 festivals but I just said "fuck it" and submitted it to all the random ones I could. 'Couds of Autumn' is my most recent and I'm waiting on the bigger festival deadlines coming up
I really want to watch all nominees for best picture at least before the oscars start tomorrow.
I hadn't seen a single one of them so I watched 5 over the last 2 days.
Birdman had great acting and unique cinematography for sure but I didn't really like the story so didn't enjoy the movie very much overall. Boyhood was okay, took obviously a lot of time and effort but the movie just got boring after a while for me. Grand budapest hotel overall was really enjoyable. Whiplash was really awesome and so was the imitation game, absolutely loved both those movies.
I hope I have enough time tomorrow to watch the final 3 before it begins.
I watched a documentary on netflix called "The Pervert's Guide to Ideology" the other day. Really interesting. The reviews on netflix are pretty polarized but that probably has a lot to do with the political content; the narrator is fairly biased, but he makes a lof of interesting points about symbolism in film and music.
would be cool
Dang haven't been here in forever. How you guys doin?
Haven't been watching a lot of movies lately but I did see Birdman, Whiplash, Boyhood, Inherent Vice, Nightcrawler, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Gone Girl off the top of my head and they were all really good. Birdman and Whiplash being standouts.
lmao this is what I was thinking of:
