I find it quite easy to know a movie sucks from the trailer, the director or from who's in it.

Another movie that I enjoy by the same producers is Deep Water.
Storyline: A documentary about the disastrous 1968 round-the-world yacht race.

Its definately not as visually exciting as touching the void but the story is very dark and tragic.

That's not what I was talking about.

I'm talking about approaching movies with an open mind. So many people think that Snyder, for example, is a dumb bro who has no clue and is like "lol slow-mo and hot chicks r cool", and this clouds their judgement every time they see a new film from him. Or worse, they know for sure the movie is bad just from watching the trailers.

That's anti-intellectualism.

I haven't seen Transformers 2, only have heard of some of its problems (racism, apparently?), but I'm pretty sure it's not as simple as you're trying to describe.


It is. There's anti-intellectualism and there's faux-intellectualism. You can warp anything into 'meaningfulness', but that doesn't mean it's there. If you know about film etc, then you must know about post-modernism... Point being: The viewers interpretation is at least as valid as the creators: If the creator entirely failed to convey 'their message' (i'm hesitant to accept that the majority of hollywood blockbusters have any 'hidden' messages), then they have failed, and you can't keep saying there's crap there that other people can't see.

That is faux-intellectualisation of a bullshit film.

I've been watching a lot of movies lately. Mostly because I'm unemployed and because of my DUI can't drive anywhere for 120 days. Thank God for my unemployment checks. Anyways, I'm going through the list of movies I've seen recently that were rated 4 stars or higher by me. Enjoy!!

And alot of are on Netflix right now =)

Frozen - Quite a tale. 3 Kids get stuck on a ski lift. Some pretty bland dialogue but some gory scenes. Worth Watching!

Canyon - Watched both Canyon and Frozen back to back. Indy films but both of them had a similar component. Canyon was much better though. Hot chick and some unbelievable action. Not for the faint of heart.

The Young Victoria - I love period flicks and this one was damn good if your like historic type movies especially from the golden age of the monarch. I liked this a whole lot because of its sappy story and its meaniful plot.

CUBE & CUBE 2 - WOW! Awesome Flick! It's about a hypercube that morphs and spins and 1/2 dozen people are stuck in it trying to get out. Again some pretty gory scenes but I found it to be very interesting and worth the reccomendation.

Chloe - Ever seen Poison Ivy? This movie stars Julianne More in a proactive sexy drama. Interesting story line with some exceptional sexually charged action scenes. You should totally watch this one.

Suspect Zero - Pyschological Thriller where the FBI has developed a new way of honing in on Serial Killers. Quite an interesting flick with lots to the storyline.

EXAM - HIGHLY HIGHLY RECCOMENDED! About 9 people vying to for a position at a global corporation where all their problems will be soled. They're put in a room with explicit instructions and what happens throughout the rest of the movie was just awesomeness! Definitely a watch!!

Just a couple more worth watching...

Crazies
Carriers
Defiance
Dreamcatchers
Unthinkable <---< WHOAA!!!! Great Movie!!!!
Daybreakers
Crank 2
Gamer


Like I said I've watched all these within the last month or so all the storylines are pretty fresh and so is my opinion. They're also all available currently on Netflix to stream so you should be able to watch them now. I enjoyed all of these lots so do check em out =)

Wrong Banksy wasn't a douche when this film was made, it was Mister Brain Wash that was the real douche. I can't say much for Bansky now but during this film the art and talent was extreme.

Yeah, I didn't watch it so my conception of him as a douche comes from nowhere, definitely not the film itself-- I'm sure i'll get it again and actually give it a go, was busy when I got it and then needed disk space so deleted it

will get it again down the track- I watched a number of youtube clips from it and it does look good

the art was EXTREME!?



also, djryan: a few things
1) when did your ban expire?
2) frozen was terrible. fun to watch only as a joke
3) chloe was pretty awful too
4) exam was decent, but i think there are better movies with similar ideas - the whole "ppl stuck in a room. obstacles presented. what the fuck can they do" thing can be appealing. check out fermat's room, it was alright.


I finished Das Boot tonight. What a fuckin movie!!!!!!!
Also, just watched The Devil's Backbone for the first time. Wow del Toro is such a great director. Between that, Cronos, and obviously Pan's Labyrinth ... whoah.

Also kinda recently I watched Norwegian Wood which I had trouble enjoying since I'm not a Japanese teenager, though I certainly am a huge Murakami fan. I think it succeeded as an adaptation. Watched Outrage as well...I had so much trouble understanding the movie, for some reason. I kept rewinding to figure out what the fuck had happened exactly. I'll watch it again sometime and likely enjoy it more then.

cheers
