>>10>"Persepolis … was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but lost to Ratatouille."
Why does anyone care about the Oscars when they're clearly a complete joke?
I recently watched Unfriended, I… don't recommend it. It's like someone thought "What if we crossed The Blair Witch Project with Cyberbu//y?" and decided to make it real.
If the Oscars are still relevant is worth discussing but yeah that animation category is totally off.
While i liked this movie, it was really a massive slog. It was quite interesting, but its just so fucking long, and seemingly without much development. I could definitely see the parallels with 1984, and it was an interesting take on those ideas.
Well, I just finished 71', which is a fucking good movie.
It can be hard to hear at times (might just be my TV), but its superb.
It's on Hulu Plus if anyone has that.
I'm thinking I'm going to start getting into some older japanese films, seeing as Hulu has so many available in their catalog.
You actually liked that movie?
For me it was the slowest, most boring, unstructured and lacking any definite story I have ever seen.
I mean, sure, about half of the movie was these kids doing kids things and having some conflicts, but overall I perceived mostly random life scenes that everybody else on this planet goes through. And the rest was just scenes from nature or the big bang, and Sean Penn putting a sad face in an office building. What I mean is no narrative whatsoever
"it's Brahms you fucking idiot, what you don't like Brahms?"
I love Dr. Strangelove, and most Kubrick films. Is eyes wide shut any good? It's one of the few i havent seen
I remember not liking the movie that much. But I saw it ages ago on tv, I should rewatch it.*is the only movie where I like Tom Cruise, tho :^)
Is there a new one?
Also the guy is hot
And Falken doesmlook like your usual nerd
Sunset Limited, maybe. I'm not much into live action.
I just watched this for the first time a few days ago, I had no idea what I was in for. Croenenberg's more than just the body horror he's known for.
Tree of Life is good. The Thin Red Line is also very good.
My favourite Malick film though is Knight Of Cups, which probably says more about where I am in life than anything else.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring. Quiet, contemplative, beautifully shot.
Terry Gilliams' The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The top of the heap of nostalgia films from my childhood including but not limited to The Gods Must Be Crazy, Willow, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.
Three films will do.>>68
As a piece of cinematography, it is good. The story is nothing amazing. Cruise is bearable, Kidman is unbearable. Barry Lyndon is definitely underrated.
I used to really love 2001 but the "big picture" storyline has lost it charm on me over the years, contrast this with the very personal Knight Of Cups. I still own a segment of Kubrick's personal cut of 2001 that came with the first print run of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.
I also watched it without having any idea about the plot, it really blew my mind.
>>406>Three films will do.
or not. forgot Jim Jarmuschs' Broken Flowers
Electric Dragon 80,000v is a really great japanese indie film with a really great soundtrack. Would recomend to fans of tetsuo the iron man, noise guitar music or japanese pro wresting anouncers
