the two-hour stand-alone movie is dead like the short story before it, discarded on the garbage heap with all other ridiculous 20th century ideas that we certainly won't repeat again like fossil fuel economy, freon and fascism
it turns out nobody ever even liked short form art, we were all craving for pre-planned 20-year cycles of cinematic universes and/or 7-season tv epics
speaking of epics, now that a rap opera about a founding father has proven successful, we're like THIS close to unironically resurrecting the heroic epic. so I hope you're looking forward to listening to 15 thousand lines of dactylic hexameter about spock because that's how we're spending the summer of 2020 motherfucker
I have abandoned even the lingering, fetid husks of 20th century bite-sized media. It's all about the long form, year-round Dungeons and Dragons streams broadcast live on twitch.
y'all seen GET OUT? pretty good imo
personally I get all my entertainment from shusky posts
also get out was good, except they didn't really have any idea how to end it so the final bits were meh
Went to see it with my brother before his surgery.
No joke, we were literally the only white people in the theater.
Not since Twin Peaks Season 3, no.
Who wouldn't come out of pseudo-retirement to wear a bunch of fancy clothes and drive around a nice car
will anyone ever actually know what this thread was originally about
Oh wait you changed the threads you were talking about
y'all ever seen HEAT?
al pacino AND robert de niro? as middle-aged violent guys? doesn't get much better than that imo, and I found out it was on netflix yesterday
michael mann really delivers on films that are halfway to being great, you should check out his other stuff on netflix
new yorker with the 5-month cold takes today on how wrong it is to center a film about a man who is used to being at the center of everything on that man
yeah, never seen any Michael Mann films before this, apparently HEAT is canonically his best, but the rest sound pretty interesting too. always up to watch a deeply-flawed masterpiece, which a lot of his films appear to be
I watched Heat like 10 years ago maybe and I remember two things:
- the sound was really great during the shoot out
- Al Pacino saying "GRRREAT ASS"
literally yesterday I rewatched Amadeus and confirmed to myself that it's one of my favourite movies ever
so I check the news this fine morning and are you fucking kidding me
somehow the only context in which I have enjoyed the music of Mozart
oh I can't remember if part of the motivation for this was learning that Béla Tarr finished making films
although I've only watched Werckmeister harmóniák
I swear I'll find 7 hours to watch Sátántangó one of these days
this was the new movies thread and morphed into the old movies thread and the old movies thread morphed into the new movies thread
I think it says something about how our despair for the future has fostered a nostalgia for the past and our reflection upon the past has driven us towards a nihilistic and utterly decadent embrace of the present
MAYBE IF THE THREAD TOPICS WERE MORE CLEARLY INDICATED THINGS WOULD BE MORE ORDERLY.
We need Fajita back to whip us into shape.
