Discussion Blade Runner 2049 is so beautiful

811 Upvotes

I only saw it for the first time. Im so envious of people who saw this in the cinema. I think the hush-hush marketing didnt bode well for people to go rushing to see this in the cinema to be honest.

I truly love how atmospheric it is. A classic example of show, dont tell. Plus, Ryan Gosling nails roles like this - the quiet, introvert type of character, similar with Drive. It is like he has created a niche for these kind of roles or something.

Anyway, as much as I truly think Ana De Armas is so pretty it was the character of Luv that truly made me held on to my screen. Not familiar with the actress but the scene where there was a silent tear drop - that was so good!

Thoughts on Blade Runner 2049?

Discussion What are some of the most tiring, repeated ad nauseam criticisms of a movie that you have seen ?

344 Upvotes

I was thinking about this after seeing so many posts or comments which have repeatedly in regards to The Irishman (2019) only focused on that one scene where Robert De Niro was kicking someone. Now while there is no doubt it could have been edited or directed better and maybe with a stunt double, I have seen people dismiss the entire 210 minutes long movie just because of this 20 seconds scene.

Considering how many themes The Irishman is grappling with and how it acts as an important bookend to Scorsese and his relationship with the gangster genre while also giving us the best performances of De Niro, Pacino and Pesi in so long, it seems so reductive to just focus on such a small aspect of the movie. The De-ageing CGI isn't perfect but it isn't the only thing that the movie has going for it.

What are some other criticisms that frustrate you ?

The movie wasn't perfect but it definitely left an impression. I know the story was a bit mixed bag, but it was such a well done movie and by the end of it I was invested enough to want more.

Discussion Do you watch English movies with subtitles even if you're a native English speaker?

298 Upvotes

”For a while now i have been accustomed to watch movies with subtitles when at home, because I'm the kinda guy who doesn't like to miss a word or sometimes some actors mumble a lot and you can't make out what they're saying, and other times it's the thick accents or there is just too much background noise ( like explosions and what have you), to actually make out what they say. So i get irritated when i watch any movie without subtitles, do you also share the same thing?”

”P.S: My native language is English, and I'm not deaf nor do i have any hearing problems. Also the subtitles i use are the non-hearing impaired ones. Basically just normal subtitles.”

Didnt want to crosspost this question, so here’s the original post.

Anyone else catch this movie back in the 90s? Been a few years since I watched and recently saw it again and was delighted all over again. I'm always reminded of the Questions game the duo play. Outside of that particular scene I really enjoyed the chemistry between Oldman and Roth. The pair seemed to really enjoy bouncing off one another.

Do you think movies being released on different streaming channels makes it harder to watch movies today?

15 Upvotes

For example, if I want to see a Netflix movie, I can only see it on Netflix. Or a Hulu movie. Or a Disney+ movie.

I don't have the means to have so many streaming channels to watch movies. For me, it makes watching movies harder and more depressing because I feel it limits my viewing process.

Yes, I pay to watch a movie in theater but that entails a fil, not a channel which involves rent that I don't necessarily pay for just myself.

Discussion The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

14 Upvotes

It amazes me that this movie, which started so slow and with such drab dialogues that I thought they were padding the runtime, got my full attention in the second half. The way they quickened the pace and built the tension right up till the end was good direction. The acting was really good too, especially that of Barry Keoghan. He really gave me the creeps with his unfocused look and uncaring attitude. I think this is the type of movie that stays with you after you're done watching it, but I'm not sure whether I'd recommend it to others. I can't think of a way to sell it to the people. What do you think?

163 Upvotes

This movie is freaking hysterical and I love it. It's a satirical take on Rambo style movies with Charlie Sheen as a veteran being called back for a special mission. I've seen it several times and still get great laughs, lots of physical stuff like Airplane!. The gummy bears, the arrow scene, the filming in the car, and so many small jokes through the whole thing just makes it even better.
