    The 10 Best Movies Influenced by 20th Century Occultism

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Aleister Crowley, an English novelist, poet, artist and “ceremonial magician” has had a acute influence on art. However, this influence is woven within the context of his philosophical religious movement, Thelema, and the impact that it has had upon its adherents (both past and present). Thelema’s influence throughout the last century is an influence that is one that persists within the shadows of culture. It developed as a re-imagining of renaissance-era philosophical law/logic that originated within the secret societies of Europe, such as Francis Dashwood’s Hellfire Club, The French Club des Hashischins (Hashish-User’s Club), the philosophy of Francois Rabelais (a Franciscan Monk, most known for his synthesis of Christian humanism with the ideals of the Greek Stoic philosophy), as well as the influence of various other hermetic orders such as the Freemasons. Crowley, influenced by the ideals of Dashwood and the humanist philosophy of Rabelais, decided to embark on a path toward the design of a hermetic order that would combine the organizational structure of such previous groups with the philosophical underpinnings of Rabelais. In this way, Crowley believed he could revive interest into what was termed ‘Magick’, a ritual practice different from stage performance what is generally termed by Thelemites as “magic”. To Crowley, the performance of ceremonial Magick was essential to the process of self-discovery and self actualization. He described the process of Magick as being the act of : “[finding out for oneself], and make sure beyond doubt, who one is, what one is, why one is …Being thus conscious of the proper course to pursue, the next thing is to understand the conditions necessary to following it out. After that, one must eliminate from oneself every element alien or hostile to success, and develop those parts of oneself which are specially needed to control the aforesaid conditions.” This process of self-discovery actualized by the practice of Magick has found its way into experimental film, blockbusters, comic books, novels, television and performance art. Thelema, though not as popular as an organized religious practice as it was in the past has seeped its way into the creation of popular media by creators like Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, H.R. Giger and Alejandro Jodorowsky. The following list of films expresses the impact that Thelema and its occult antecessors have had on film culture.
  2. The 10 Best Movies Influenced by Marxist Philosophy's icon

    The 10 Best Movies Influenced by Marxist Philosophy

    Favs/dislikes: 0:1. Karl Marx was one of the most influential philosopher of all time and consequently his work has influenced a lot of films. The spectator faces Marxist problems such as: proletariat conditions, bourgeoisie dominance, the evolving technology and its connection to society, and revolution. Every problem is only a signal of the advent of the communist era, which consists of final justice on earth. This is the core of an entire movement which deeply influenced the world. Obviously there were other philosophers, many influenced by Marx, who expanded those core elements in many other directions, some of them contemporaneous to him including Engels, Kautsky, Bernstein and others after his death (Rosa Luxemburg, Gyorgy Lukacs, Antonio Gramsci, Ernst Bloch). Every one of them shared a faith in proletariat justice, where object and subject finally identify each other. Lower industrial classes are the “soil” for the revolution and will bring true values for all humanity but doing this demands the fall of the dominant industrialized class: the bourgeoisie. Fraternity is the key word to the basis of a community, and Communism is the ultimate community where humanity frees itself from physical and mental slavery. Marx has never described a “communist” society but he gave some advice in his Critique of the Gotha Program. He said that capitalism is the world where slave-masses serve the few dehumanized bourgeoisies. Once this is known it’s easy to understand that for a film to be Marxist it should reflect reality as closely as possible. It should reflect the horribleness of bourgeois society and the honorable values brought about by the proletarian class. That is a simplified point of view in respect to the Marxist way to see arts (in particular in respect to Lukacs’s literary theories), but it shows the core of this concept. In fact, during the Soviet era, the most common type of film coming from “red” countries,was the documentary. What ‘s better than reality itself to show how society and socialism work? Exemplary examples are the “Kino-pravda” works created by Dziga Vertov. The main ideas expressed Marx evolved through time and in particular during the 67-68’ period which brought a sort of renaissance and reconsideration of the core Marxist ideas, which ends in a post-structuralist philosophical movement. In this final development of “revolutionary” ideas, Marx was an influence along with others, so it can be said that in cinema’s post-68’ period is not a continuation of the Russian montage school. Considering the history of socialism and the history of cinema, there is a wide range of achievement among the movies influenced by Marx and these show many different aspects of Marx ideas, demonstrating the multifaceted dimensions of this movement. On the other hand it is possible to show what Marxism has meant to humanity through the eyes of a number of directors.

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. The cliché that fact can be stranger than fiction rings true in the case of these documentaries. Unbelievable characters, unexpected twists and general weirdness make this list a little unsettling when you stop to consider it is all really life drama. At times you feel like you are watching a Lynch, or Cronenberg film, but the fact that this all actually happened may leave you feeling a little unhinged.
  6. The 10 Worst Edited Movies of All Time's icon

    The 10 Worst Edited Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Editing is a heavily overlooked aspect of films when it comes to casual audiences. Good editing makes the very existence of a film’s edits seem invisible; someone who wills to dissect movies will pay close attention to the pacing and cutting of a film. Either way, a film that is well edited will never distract you from everything else that is going on. The only exception to this rule is a segment that blows you away with either something innovative or something swift. “Requiem For a Dream” features many cuts, but it boils an anxiety within its viewers to mimic the withdrawals the onscreen characters are facing. Thelma Schoonmaker has famously turned every Scorsese film she has worked on into a cinematic waltz. If you pay enough close attention to the less-blatant examples as well, you will find a new respect for some of your favourite films.

But, this list isn’t about that. This is a list of 10 of the most toxic editing you can find. These are edits that will either give you a migraine within microseconds, confuse you beyond belief, or will be so pointless that the featured film will annoy you. Unlike most good editing jobs, these examples detach you from a film and will make you aware of each and every little cut (or lack thereof). With that being said, here are 10 films with some of the worst editing in cinematic history.

    The Different Types of External Conflict & 10 Great External Conflict Examples

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. External conflict is an essential part of screenwriting in that it’s essential in driving any plot. It is different to internal conflict in that whilst internal conflict is within the characters, external is outside of the character. In this article we’ll seek to define what external conflict is as well as provide some brilliant external conflict examples. We’ll look at: What is External Conflict? What are the Different Types of External Conflict? Which are the Best Examples of External Conflict? Defining External Conflict External conflict is when characters are faced with forces outside themselves, beyond their control, which oppose their needs and wants. Internal and external conflict are not mutually exclusive, both are necessary in well written stories. External conflict is the basis of the entire plot, driving the narrative forward. Whilst internal conflict adds depths to characters and storylines. External conflict is essentially the outside forces that pressure the protagonist into action. Internal conflict will be the pressure a protagonist puts on themselves, something that external conflict can exacerbate, motivate or call into question. But external conflict is the pressure point unique to this story. A protagonist has a long life outside the point at time in which we are seeing them and. The external conflict is usually the reason why we are meeting them at this point in their life. This is unless of course the story encapsulates the protagonist‘s entire life, in which case conflict will be many and varied. External conflict is the antagonist force for a protagonist and it can take many forms… Types of External Conflict There are three primary forms of external conflict within screenwriting. Each is vital to understanding antagonists and obstacles. Nature vs Character – This is when the world is opposing the goals of the protagonists. This could be a natural disaster, a global pandemic or an evil creature of some kind. Character vs Character – This is the simplest form of conflict and involves the battle of the protagonist and antagonist, both of whom have opposing goals, needs and wants. Society vs Character – In this form of conflict, the protagonists are faced with a society that opposes them. Dystopian societies involve this form of conflict, where it seems that the protagonist is overwhelmed by societal oppression. These three forms of external conflict are the most common but not the only forms. There are other subcategories that can be extrapolated from each. These often include: Supernatural vs Character (a variant of Nature vs Character eg. Ghost Stories, Poltergeist) Technology vs Character (a variant of Society vs Character eg. 2001 Space Oddysey, Blade Runner). Animal vs Character (another variant of Nature vs Character mixed with Character vs Character eg. Moby Dick, Jaws). The aforementioned three are the primary forms of external conflict. However, you’ll see in our examples that from the three primary forms of external conflict, secondary ones will spring. Furthermore, types of external conflict are by no means mutually exclusive. To the contrary, they often spawn and feed each other. External conflict is rarely the only conflict in a film of course. In most films, the external conflict feeds into and creates internal conflict within the characters who have to deal with it. Internal and external conflict need each other to survive and it’s in this relationship that drama thrives. Let’s take a look at some examples…

    The Top 10 Screenplays of All Time by CineFix, new version

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. If you want to make a good movie, the first thing you have to do is WRITE a good movie. The case for the screenplay being the most important part of filmmaking isn’t the most difficult one to make. It sets the tone for character, action, theme and pace, which inform all the other most vital storytelling devices in cinema’s arsenal. It’s a strangely daunting task to pick 10 and one that, frankly, we’ve been trying to avoid, but today we’re testing our mettle! Here are our picks for the top 10 screenplays of all time. From the crackling back and forth of classic old hollywood fare like His Girl Friday to the hipster swagger of Juno and hyper-specific cadence of Quentin Tarantnio in Pulp Fiction, the most obvious thing to look at is dialogue. But screenplays are also filled with action description, from a boulder chasing Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, to the way the “camera” swoops out of Jack’s brain at the beginning of Fight Club. There’s world building to do, like the vastness of Lord of the Rings, there’s exposition to deliver, like Rian Johnson methodically reverse engineering a mystery in Knives Out, and there is tone to set, like the violent intensity of PT Anderson and There Will Be Blood. Screenplays have a lot to accomplish, and so do we! So enjoy the next twenty minutes or so!

    Wegothiscoverred: The Ten Best Films Of The Noughties

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Join us in our decade-based film retrospective, as we delve backwards all the way from 2009 to 1910. Most decade-based best movie lists grant you a whooping 50-100 entries, which makes perfect sense given all the years you have to take into consideration. But what if you were defining a decade in just ten films? Showcasing the very best of its cinematic offerings? Which movies would you recommend to somebody who might only watch ten movies from a given decade? First off, it’s the Noughties. The Noughties, for anyone who is still confused by that term (although I doubt anybody is), is the years 2000 through 2009. And although there will always be a nostalgic clamoring for the golden days of cinema – a time when all ideas seemed fresh and groundbreaking, and sequels and franchises were a little less… everywhere – the Noughties have proven themselves a spectacular era of filmmaking, albeit a decade somewhat lacking in identity. There has been innovation, of course, what with the rise of digital filmmaking, James Cameron’s Avatar, and Pixar’s string of acclaimed masterpieces. This decade, too, saw the rise of the superhero film, a subgenre which continues to dominate the box office with relentless force (and shows no sign of slowing down). And yet both independent and studio films have continued to find audiences in projects of all shapes and sizes. Here’s what we’ve come up with, although everybody’s list is sure to be completely different.

So filmmakers, determined to get people into theaters, went to new heights to attract audiences. Pushing the comedic envelope with movies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, using technology to create an otherworldly experience in films like Avatar, or just tugging at our heartstrings, they created some of the best movies of all time.

    10 great natural history films

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. In 1910, audiences were mesmerised by the spectacle of a sepia- and cobalt-toned series of flowers bursting into bloom, their petals unfurling in what appeared to be real time. The Birth of a Flower (1910) by F. Percy Smith (1880-1945) was a watershed moment in the use of what we now know as timelapse, or ‘time magnification’ as this pioneer of British natural history filmmaking referred to it. Since then, filmmakers have deployed an array of techniques for bringing the natural world closer to human perception, from macro- and micro-cinematography through to illustrative animations and computer models. The camera has transported viewers to places they cannot go, from the deepest ocean floors to the sun-baking heat of the most arid deserts. Smith, however, filmed most of his material in the grandiose-sounding Southgate Studios – actually his own home, a terraced house in Enfield, north London. For him, of equal importance to the phenomena that fell beneath his lens was the technology used to fix it on film. Both aspects were the subjects of the trio of books he co-authored, Secrets of Nature (1939), Cine-Biology (1941) and See How They Grow (1952), which explain the motivation, methodology and science behind his cinematic probings of the natural world. Many of Smith’s films are included on the BFI’s Secrets of Nature DVD release from 2010. Now they have been repurposed by Stuart A. Staples and David Reeve for an immersive and hypnotic new work, Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith, featuring a suitably free-flowing and otherworldly original soundtrack by Tindersticks with Thomas Belhom and Christine Ott. This new film presents a hidden universe that is sensual, abstract and alien, yet strongly resonates with our own perceptions of the ecosystem around us. The release of Minute Bodies on Blu-ray and DVD prompts an opportunity to cast our eyes to some of the more revolutionary endeavours in the field of natural history filmmaking over the past century.

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. June 24, 2020 By Puja Basu The repealing of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code was definitely a moment of monumental significance in contemporary Indian history. Even though the provision was a legislative relic of the British colonial government, the government of the United Kingdom had revoked this provision in their own country, much before India did the same. The struggle for equal rights and opportunities for people belonging to the LGBTQ+ spectrum in India is far from over; however, the past decade has seen some interesting trends in terms of representation of queer characters in Indian cinema. For a society that [url=]still refuses to condone sex education[/url] because the subject continues to be taboo, the cinematic medium becomes an interesting means of initiating conversations on the matter, given its reach and capacity for mass engagement. It’s been over two decades since the release of Deepa Mehta’s “[url=]Fire[/url]”, which had created a furor owing to its portrayal of a same-sex relationship, that two between two sisters-in-law! While public response to such content has changed over the years, so have the kinds of stories filmmakers have been trying to tell. While most works tend to make the character’s sexuality or their instance of ‘coming out’ the focus of their trajectory, some have even managed to go beyond this narrative trope. Here’s taking a look at some of the most interesting Indian cinematic approaches in the last decade, to representing and narrativizing queer stories snd characters.

    7 Well Written Movie Scenes That Don’t Use Any Dialogue

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Dialogue should do at least one of two things, advance plot and establish characters. A screenwriter uses more than conversations between characters to do that. Dialogue gets more recognition than any other element of a script because it is the writing that translates to the screen, but a script is more than the characters’ words. It is the document that every artist of the filmmaking process uses to create his or her piece that contributes to the film. A script is the film’s action and plot. It creates the characters and the narrative spirit that breathes life into the film. Considering that film is primarily a visual medium, characters’ action and imagery are essential tools in creating and advancing a narrative. An absence of dialogue can often be a more effective way to advance a story. Elements of a film’s narrative are encoded in mise en scene (a French term that loosely translates to “things on the screen) of every image, every shot, and every frame. Writers use a narrative structure in their scenes in which action reveals character and plot, and a pacing that creates the tension that keeps the audience engaged.
