Blog comment on Men at Work
Big A2I like it, but it does remind me too much of Facebook; and way too many sites use blue these days anyway. No desire to keep the original red/green/beige palette?
Toplist comment on Rotten Tomatoes's Top 100 Movies of All Time
Big A2Holy crap they actually changed it so it makes sense now.
Blog comment on The Unknown
Big A2Sight & Sound, finally!
Movie comment on Berlin Calling
Big A2A stock standard drug addict film that impressively manages to find the time to rip off One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
Toplist comment on Sight & Sound Critics Top 250 (2012)
Big A2This should've been made an official list the moment it came out! No exaggeration, it's really a billion times more important than the IMDb or Reddit top 250 lists.
Movie comment on La vita è bella
Big A2@VChile: The Jewish barber character in The Great Dictator did end up in a concentration camp, though he escaped pretty quickly.
Toplist comment on Reddit Top 250
Big A2Hell, I'd disqualify this list just based on the kind of people in the Reddit community. It's a Gen X fest, and is always the same mid-to-late-90s and 2000s cult-but-still-popular-classics crowding up the list, with 80s nostalgia sprinkled in.
Movie comment on CM101MMXI Fundamentals
Big A2This film looks terrible and I totally want to see it. Especially if the subtitles are translated as well as the IMDb plot summary.
"Yilmaz proves us that a food delivery or even a funeral might be amusing when considered correctly."
Toplist comment on Empire's The Greatest Movie Sequels
Big A2I wonder why For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly don't count? They're certainly better than freakin' Shrek 2.
Movie comment on The Thin Man
Big A2My brain isn't very good with these sorts of movies; I can never keep track of everything that's happening. I did still enjoy it though.
Movie comment on Rosemary's Baby
Big A2@Rainy: Pretty sure the point is that they really are happening. There's no other explanation for her friends and family's behaviour.
Movie comment on The Tree of Life
Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed."
To be honest I don't think it's fair to immediately whip out labels like these for films that experiment. If we immediately reject stuff like this as an audience (aka the people’s whose money essentially funds this), then where is film as an art-form supposed to go? I’m not saying The Tree of Life has changed movies forever but you can’t blame it for trying something different.
Movie comment on The Artist
Big A2Late reply
@ericaf: I'm saying "silent" isn't a genre. Just like "colour" and "widescreen" aren't genres.
Movie comment on Stalag 17
Big A2Every Wilder movie I've seen thus far has a fantastic last line and this was no exepction.
Movie comment on Monsieur Verdoux
Big A2I agree with Welles, this would have been a better movie had he directed it. Still a good flick, but, knowing the history of the movie's making, it's a case of what could have been.
Movie comment on Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens
Big A2A lot of complaining about the music going on here. The version I watched (Region 4 Mad Man DVD) had the original score, and it was great. It's not Metropolis-level quality or anything but it gets the job done; very atmospheric and tense. I believe the most recent Kino DVD also has the 1922 score.
Skip the cheap/free public domain versions and see it proper. The score for the one on YouTube is a complete joke.
Movie comment on True Romance
Big A2"You're a cantaloupe" is my new favourite Walken quote.
Movie comment on A View to a Kill
Big A2Sorry Walken, but not even your MAG-NIFIcence could save this drek.
You know what would make the best Bond movie ever? No Bond. Just have the villain be the main character and have his plan thwarted by some off-screen secret agent. This one certainly would have been better for it.
Movie comment on Barton Fink
Big A2What the hell.
I loved it but this will be hard to recommend.
Movie comment on Barfi!
Big A2@EnggarB: By that logic almost no Tarantino movies deserve to be on lists. Nor does The Artist.
Movie comment on Kill Bill: Vol. 2
Big A2I kinda wish there was a way I could favourite both films as one, as the whole thing is greater than the sum of it's parts. It's a shame Vol. 1 is the more popular one, becuase it's only really the first half of one story.
Movie comment on The Master
Big A2@thestuman101694: Huh? Was there ever any doubt that film was dead in the first place?
Movie comment on Looper
Big A2@dombrewer: No, he won't explain it because it's not important to the story. The screenplay doesn't "cheat", it skips the useless explanation because it would only crowd up the story.
Movie comment on The Expendables 2
Big A2Perfect example of Poe's law.
Movie comment on Harold and Maude
