General Film Discussion

4,624 posts in this topic

I figured I might as well make this to go along with the General TV Thread for similar purposes. It's mainly a thread for talking about general news regarding films and much looser discussion of upcoming movies and other news related to it. Talking about the actual craft of filming is also welcome too.

Anyway, I mentioned this in the Off Topic Lounge recently but I eventually do plan on forming a checklist of sorts so I can try to watch as many new films as I can over the summer. I'm already starting with the Alien series, but after that it's pretty much up in the air and just depends on what I have readily available to me. Once I get Netflix though I'll have a much easier time being able to view some of the movies I've been itching to see for a while now.

And regarding upcoming movie news, I've been seeing more and more advertising for that new Snow White movie and good lord does it look dull. I feel like I should be used to Hollywood doing all of these "edgy" fairy tale adaptations by now but it still escapes me why this trend is still going strong at this point.

I've been enjoying Jim Jarmusch's stuff recently. Ghost Dog is wonderful. I feel like I really "get" his movies: why he makes the decisions he does as a director/writer even though they may seem abnormal. The way he captures urban scenery in Ghost Dog is so subtle in how awesome it is too.

If you need help with a checklist, I found that this site is great for at least keeping a general log of the movies you've seen. Plus it sorta gives me a general direction of what movies I should watch.

-Duck You Sucker! by Sergio Leone

-The Pianist by Roman Polanski

-Modern Times by Charles Chaplin

-A Fish Called Wanda by Charles Crichton and John Cleese

-Alien by Ridley Scott

-The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont

-The Deer Hunter by Michael Cimino

-Cape Fear by Martin Scorsese

-The Name of the Rose by Jean-Jacques Annaud

I can't think of any other film, right now.

I highly recommend Tim Burton's Batman and it's sequel Batman Returns. And if I know right, The Dark Knight Rises will have some references from the previous Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, so you might check them out as well. Batman Begins isn't bad but it's not groundbreaking either. The Dark Knight however is a great improvement over the first movie.

I'm finding that these online streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, HuluPlus, etc are generally not the place to go if you want to watch something in particular, because there's a good chance it won't be on there. But such services are nice if you just want to watch something you haven't seen before, and don't mind browsing what they have available.

Yeah, that's true. I've still seen quite a good amount of stuff on the service when I watched Netflix at someone else's house, so I think I'll be able to get some good use out of it. It's also good if they have films/shows available that I've wanted to watch but have forgotten about so then I could just watch them on the spot.

Netflix is mostly good for catching up on TV shows. I see it as more like something to fall back on than anything because there are a few series (The X-Files, Futurama, Arrested Development) I'd rather watch on DVD than on Netflix. At the very least, in spite of missing major things things like Universal and Disney franchises and The Simpsons, you'll absolutely find something you'll like on it.

I'm on a Netflix 1-month trial, and I'm finding it funny that they threw in American Superhero cartoons in the Anime section. I think their logic there was if it's animated but isn't strictly for kids only, it goes under Anime.

My friend and I have been watching a lot of Twilight Zone, Futurama and Trailer Park Boys on Netflix. It really is great for TV shows. But we've never had any luck with their on-demand movie section.

Also, most anime on there is dubbed and there is no sub option, and that's kind of lame.

Some superhero cartoons nowadays are animated by Madhouse, which is a Japanese animation studio. So I'm guessing that's probably why they're there.
