Discussion Blade Runner 2049 is so beautiful

2.7k 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 ?

1.5k 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 ?

Discussion What movie have you rewatched the most times?

85 Upvotes

The movie I've rewatched the most times is probably Holes (2003). The reason I've rewatched it the most is because, I have such a fun time watching it each time. It may not be the greatest movie of all-time but I love it.

Now that I think about it, there are probably some movies I've watched several times a day when I was younger. But those don't count.

Which movies used a big name to lure people, but only had little screen time?

74 Upvotes

Some companies users big names to lure people to the theaters. But then you watch the movie and it turns out the big names, dies or is off screen or has so little screen time it wasnt worth mentioning it on the poster.

Like Bryan Cranston in Godzilla.

Salma Hayek in Eternals.

Ana de Armas in Yesterday.

Micheal Keaton in beetlejuice (only 17 minutes)

Which other movies used this type of advertising/marketing?

What's a movie genre, that an actor doesn't do much, that they're good at and that you want them to do more of?

45 Upvotes

For example, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey mostly do action movies and comedies (respectively), but they're pretty good at dramas too with Vanilla Sky (for Tom Cruise) and The Truman Show (for Jim Carrey)

Liam Neeson was also pretty good at movies like Schindler's List and Love, Actually, then movie directors realized his intimidating and deep voice was perfect for action movies

Discussion Mary Elizabeth Winstead is fast becoming my fav actor

29 Upvotes

She's stood out in every movie I ever saw her in and now I've begun looking for movies that she is in. The last thing I saw her in was Kate and I'm thinking that movie would've been just a fraction of what it was if just about anybody else had played her part (though there were absolutely other fine aspects to the movie). I'm not a critic or good at writing reviews etc, just a big time fan. That is all.

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.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

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.

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

415 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.

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

54 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.

What’s one moment you remember watching in theaters that everyone clapped or cheered ?

15 Upvotes

This has happen a couple of times but the most recent one is when I was watching ‘Scream(2022)’ at a packed out theater the day before it’s released at night . It was the part SPOILERS when Sam killed her bf , and said ‘Never mess with a serial killer daughter’ and everyone clapped for a couple of seconds including me . Then that was the only part people clapped . It got me more into the movie even though it was ending , just moments like these make me think of two things : 1. Imagine being a filmmaker or someone apart of making the film , then imagine theaters across the world watching the movie you worked on , and you got people clapping at parts like this or at the credits ( on any movie ). 2. Then think about the story you’ve witnessed and think about the obstacles the protagonist went on his or her hero journey .

Idk that’s just me , but what’s one moment this has happen to you whether it being the credits or the hero finally overcoming all odds .
