whenever I am looking at buying a game online I always find cinematic trailers on top of everything and can barely find the actual gameplay, it pisses me off since the whole point of me looking at the game page is seeing how the game would play out, it would be easier if I was looking for an FPS and would see what the gameplay is like than looking at some dramatic third-person life story of a character or setting I don't even know about, I get that cinematic trailers tell you the story/layout of the game but I couldn't give a half-arse about that if the gameplay isn't what I thought it would be, so that's my time wasted, I want to see how I would play the game not what the storyline would look like.
If you want me to buy the game, let me watch the gameplay and see if I'll enjoy it, and then you can give me all the cinematic bs when I actually have the game!
I wanna hear some David Lynch talk
What are some of the best, not-immediately-obvious jokes or stories in the filmography?
I'll add some comments below to get us started.
Wow, what a movie! I was mesmerised throughout.
Now I want to watch more of Denis. Should I go about watching her movies in a chronological order? Or is there a more thematic approach?
Thanks a bunch.
I hear a lot of people say they prefer Tony to Ridley and I want to see how that plays in the Blankie community.
For instance, the Coen brothers are probably my favorite directors. Here is my current list of their filmography in order based on a combination of how much I love them and their overall quality.
No Country for Old Men
The Big Lebowski
Burn After Reading
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
The Hudsucker Proxy
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
A Serious Man
The Man Who Wasn't There
Inside Llewyn Davis
The Ladykillers (haven't fully seen)
Looking forward to reading your lists! Be sure to include the films you haven't seen or need to rewatch/etc. Have fun!
What’s the difference between 30 frames and 60 frames per second? I’ve seen people say it becomes smoother so does that mean 60 FPS is better for fast paced video or slow video? Like what are the situations you would choose one over the other?
Has anyone else done this? I fell in love with him as Obi-Wan Kenobi, but recently I decided to start watching all his other movies (yes, all of them) and I’m discovering some really amazing, underrated roles of his. If nothing else, I’d recommend it as a great way to pass the time!
Just saw one of the comments stating that he is a very generic actor but despite being in a lot of good movies, his name doesn’t really get brought up in acting discussions. Here’s some of his best roles, according to me:
Plus he has produced a few good movies and shows too. So what do you think of him as an actor?
This discussion is inspired by those moments when we like actors so much that we are diving deep into their filmography. Which actor's filmography impressed you and which left disappointed? Maybe this discussion will help us to change our opinion on some actors.
My number 1 is Lee Je-Hoon no doubt . Obviously I knew he was good while watching Signal , but after looking into his other movies I realized how actually phenomenal he is . His first big role was in an indie movie Bleak night ( highly recommend, it's one of a kind , incredible film) LJH acted like there's no tomorrow. He won a lot of well deserved awards for that role .His notable roles include Front line , Architecture 101 , Anarchist from Colony (I cried a lot tbh) and I can speak ( ok never knew I can cry so much ) - all are very financially successful and critically acclaimed movies . And his recent movie Time to hunt is really good as well . I am so grateful to him for choosing his projects so well . I love his acting style so much .
Special mention is Kim Donghee. He only has a few dramas under his belt but all of them are successful ( Sky castle ,Itaewon class and Extracurricular) I am so excited for his future .
Well ,let's talk about the opposite. As hate to say it but Ji Chang Wook is not really good with picking the scripts. I liked him a lot in K2 and obviously wanted to see more from him ,but couldn't find anything interesting and ultimately just moved on . Maybe I missed something ? Which role is his best in your opinion ?
Please share your thoughts !
I just got done watching another Mickey Rourke film “A Prayer for the Dying” and while I think Rourke is a good actor and always possesses a “cool factor” objectively I can say most of his films aren’t too good overall. However, I always am interested in watching him on screen; I find him magnetic in his films. As there anyone you can think of that has a similar filmography?
I am absolutely loving Servant, especially the wild swings it took these past two weeks. "Pizza" had me dying of laughter. "2:00" disturbed the unholy fuck out of me.
Every once in a while, I revisit Tony Basgallop's IMDB credits. Other than 24: Live Another Day, I haven't seen any of his work. Reading summaries of them, I just can't see any hints that this guy had Servant cooking inside his brain.
Props to Shyamalan for giving Basgallop the opportunity to make his vision a reality.
I like Snyder I think he's great I love Man of steel, Watchmen, 300, Dawn of the Dead his underrated Legend of the Gaurdians of Gahoole animated film. Which by the way to defend Snyder those are coherently written stories, BvS and Suckerpunch aren't there's a difference.
The only comic book film I dislike from him is BvS If I had to rank them it'd be Man of steel Watchmen 300 BvS
I know people think Snyder's the best thing ever and BvS is a masterpiece but honestly I blame a lot of the annoying Snyder fans not watching enough movies Kubrick has at least 5 masterpieces, Denis villeneuve the best director working today in his 50s tied with Paul Thomas Anderson has 3 masterpieces with Prisoners, Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival. I'd say expand your horizons people opinions on film change and grow as they watch more movies. Denis villeneuve does everything Snyder does but a billion times better he makes dark serious, character driven smart films that are far smarter than anything in Snyder's filmography. Snyder's best when he's making straight forward action movies when he tries to be Nolan he fails he's better suited making films like John Wick than say Gone Girl. What's your thoughts on Snyder as a filmmaker?
I want to do a deep dive into the filmography of particular directors you think are worthy. I'll like mentions of Directors that are not well known or recognized.
What's everyone's ranking of David Lynch's movies? here's mine:
Hi, how do you feel UTSL has a meaning inside David Robert Mitchell filmography. I mean The myth of the American Sleepover is a kind of a teen movie, very cute sweet and full of tenderness because he is showing the age of innocence, of first kisses, of purity. Then, with it follows, he seems to focus on the first sexual experiences which always scare people and seem to FOLLOW them their whole life, and what genre does he uses to describe this part of life : HORROR (makes sense right ?). And finally, with UTSL, again another genre, a film noir, in which - in my opinion- he seems to describe the transition to adulthood which is obviously difficult and which comes with a collapse of dreams.
What do you think about this? What elements of Under The Silver Lake contribute to this theory ?
What’s up everyone. Ever since I watched house a while back I’ve wanted to check out some of Obayashi’s other films. I finally made the decision to watch one tonight but it’s been a struggle trying to find somewhere that has them. Anybody know of any sources that preferably aren’t illegal streams?
Good GOD. What a stable career.
