    watched Dredd 3d the other night. thought it was bad. the movie also made me realize i cant stand hyper stylized lighting, they used every shade of color like disco was going out of fashion in that movie.

    plan on catching Amour here soon after i get over my cold, that is if it's still playing at my theater . i wasnt going to see this until i found out Haneke was directing it.

    rewatched blue velvet for like to millionth time.

    learn something new with every watch.

    his use of the 'closeup' is really fantastic in this one, seamless editing. the cutting ratio is like
    super small, every cut really packs a punch.

    even though it didn't fit with the comic book Dredd's modus operandi, Ma-Ma's death was beautiful. especially with the accompanying music.

    hahaha i knew you wouldnt approve.

    just finished watching The Turin Horse, got damn that was a hard watch (could have been part of the point). apparently it's directed by some hungarian director who does pretentious artistic movies. the viewing was tedious but i can appreciate what he was trying to do and what he accomplished. i wasnt counting but i think the movie didnt use many shots, maybe 20-30 shots for the whole movie. impressive stuff. the cinematography was expertly delivered and complemented the theme well.

    for some reason, i always thought munich was one of spielberg's best movies...maybe because it didnt come off to me as too spielberg, not sure but this movie definitely doesnt get the praise it deserves. i guess in that sense it's my spielberg "guilty pleasure"

    Yeah, it's definitely one of his least sentimental movies, and less traditional as far as his old-school directing inclinations go. It's a good one.

    Did they hire the entire back catalogue of Capcom voice actors and script writers?

    Only good thing was the outtakes at the end, I would happily watch the dvd extras.

    Now having watched it last night, I misinterpreted your post and the first comment to it to read that your favorite character died in the finale

    When you said Deen I thought "Like James Deen?" then I clicked the link and said "Yup!" I can't watch the clip here at work, but I have a feeling Lohan would make me dislike this film.

    heard a weird rumor that the raid got an early copy of the dredd script and thats why their so similar. also had a friend whos a comic writer tell me, that dredd was based on a early 2000's storyline. kinda curious about the truth of this.

    Alex Garland(Dredd writer) was kicking around Dredd scripts since 2006, I think he was gonna do 1986's Democracy(was in the 2000AD comics) as the main plot but it was too complex to pull off while re-establishing the Dredd world. The final film has a lot of the comic elements, but I don't think it was based on any particular Dredd storyline. I remember Anderson's character, but I don't remember Ma-Ma, and it's been years since I've read any Dredd stuff.

    Looks like Dredd is cleaning up in the rental/DVD/Bluray market.

    Hey, get Lindelof to write it and I definitely won't see it. OK, that's a lie, I wasn't going to see it anyways. Is there a word for someone who only like ANH and ESB? Snob?

    Nah, that'd be a Star Wars Realist. Yeah, there's six movies, but only two are really great. The rest you just kinda accept, but if pushed into a corner, you sort of "like" them just to defend Star Wars

    I'd be okay with Lindelof and Abrams usual crew involved, just have someone to spot check death scenes that result from logic numbing stupidity.:rofl: I can't hate Lindelof too much though, I finally watched Lost all the way through and really enjoyed it. Best Stephen King novel that Stephen King never wrote.

    Jedi is interesting case...I don't hate it like I hate ep1-3, but I don't enjoy it either. I typically get bored of it whenever I try to watch it. It does have "It's a trap!" but that's about it for me.

    Once people saw those prequel's, then all of sudden they like Jedi now. I honestly didn't have a problem with Jedi.
  • AlphaZeroAlphaZero Zzzz Joined: Posts: 994
    I don't mind Jedi, but I do like it less since Lucas added Young Anakin ghost at the end. Tarnishes it even more than the CG celebration scene. Too much plodding around Jabba's palace at the start. Vader and Luke's stuff is still great though.

    Personally I think it would be hilarious if Abrams puts references to Stars Wars in Star Trek and vice versa.

    I hate Star Wars but I am intrigued to see what he can do for the franchise, and what Lidelulz can do with The Force.

    Yeah, he did that This Means War with Reese Witherspoon, Captain Kirk and Bane, and it was horrible. Even for action rom com stuff. Made Knight and Day seem masterful:rofl:. He's had a lot of cancelled projects after that Terminator disaster, quite a few with over 10 million invested. Still talks about remaking Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep(Blade Runner).
    Hope that never happens. Ever.

    Jedi was the one OT movie that was influenced and spoiled by the series' pop culture status, including having merchandising and fanservice in mind during production. So cute teddy bears instead of Wookies, half nekkid Carrie Fisher (I'm okay with this), responding to backlash from the "unfun" ESB, and other bloat that detracts from Vader's redemption plot. The beginning of the end for Lucas-era Star Wars. Of course Jedi still nukes the PT from existence.

    Jedi was made to tie everything up as nobody really wanted to do a fourth one and the contracts for all the actors were expiring. It was also the first of them to sacrifice artistic integrity for money. The problem is it isn't particularly well done but is still a watchable film.

    - First of all the cinematography, directing, and writing is worse. Peter Suschitzky and Irvin Kershner did not come back and Leigh Brackett was dead.
    - Han Solo doesn't really have anything to do. He just gets rescued, smiles, and acts stoned as Ford was only under contract for two movies so the original plan was to have him be rescued but either be dead or die in the attempt if he didn't want to come back.
    - The Jabba's Palace stuff is good even if some of the plotting is dumb such as the lightsaber being in R2D2 so he can shoot it out at the right time instead of Luke, who is now a Jedi, just walking in and killing everyone with his buddies like Kyle Katarn which is what eventually happens.
    - Luke going back to Dagobah and having Yoda and Obi Wan's ghost confirm that Vader is his dad is unnecessary but Lucas only included it as kids couldn't tell if Vader was lying or not in Empire so I can see why he put that in.
    - Ewoks were originally supposed to be Wookiees on Kashyyk and wrap up Chewbacca's storyline and such. The Empire enslaved the Wookiees as they are huge, stronger than like 20 guys, and live for 600 or something years on average but hiring a bunch of giants was way more expensive than dwarves and children and Lucas was financing it himself to keep all the merchandising so he went with the cheapo route.
    - The battle on Endor is retarded too. A couple hundred Eworks with stone age tech take down a few legions of stormtroopers. Keep in mind a legion is like 5,000+ heavy infanty and an equal number of auxiliaries. I could see the rebels using them in a massive wave attack to take dow nteh shield generator with heavy casualties but no that isn't what happens. They take down the best trained army in the galaxy who has developed new tech like scout troopers and speeder bikes with nothing but Home Alone booby traps.
    - The Emperor was changed from a guy who sounded regal but ruthless to throaty, sadistic, evil guy. Ian McDiarmid did a great job with the material he was given even if his plan was kind of retarded. Him being beyond weapons and just using the force for torture was a nice counterpoint to Yoda. The final confrontation is solid too (not as good as Empire though) with some nice ideas.
    - The space battle is really fucking well done. Like it's better than the prequel ones.
    - The real problem is endor, the lightsaber fight, and the death star battle are all edited together, which ruins the emotional buildup with the cutting back and forth instead of being simple like initial space attack, wait, attack the shield generator on endor with luke being captured, luke confronts vader + the emperor, finish the other battles, vader dies on the shuttle, deathstar is blown up. ggpo.
    - The final thing is that killing the emperor and a dozen star destroyers and a couple legions doesn't mean much. Remember that Star Wars galaxy has over a million populated worlds with trillions of people and is ruled by strongmen like Tarkin, who even Vader has to respect. Killing the emperor and wiping out maybe 100k max of his couple billion guys means hardly anything. One of them will just declare himself the new emperor and back it up with brute force, hokey religion be damned.

    Enough with the Star Wars though. To Live in Die in LA is on Youtube in 1080p. Watch that shit as it's classic.
