>/tv/ is filled with plebs who only watch capeshit movies
That's not the problem with /tv/. Lots of them seem to hate 'capeshit'. The real problem is that they cannot into any kind of criticism beyond that at all.

Well, that and baneposting.

Well, those two, plus the pedophilia.

Well, those three, and the fact that /pol/ has basically taken over to the point that you can't actually mention a black actor without destroying a thread.

...OK, there are a lot of problems with /tv/.
>9. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Mesa sowwy you have shit taste!
I think you missed the irony in that post.
You're right man, I'm sorry now, for real.
I don't think you know what irony is.
I don't think you know what thinking is.
Say it like you mean it, anon.

In a Jar-Jar accent.
Sure I do. It's a little hard to explain, but some examples should suffice: it's like rain on your wedding day, or a free ride when you've already paid. Or maybe like ten thousand spoons, when all you need is a knife. The list could go on.
When I was in junior high, my "girlfriend" and I performed this song at a talent show.

Just thought you should know.
The list could go on, but it didn't!
I expected otherwise!
How ironic!
Lemme help you. Put some Tarkovsky, a few Bergmans, token Japanese one (Ozu if you see too many Kurosami), maybe a Malick, possibly a New Wave (Godard is too fashionable, Bresson is safer), if you're a Christard throw in Dreyer.
B-but my favourite director is Wong Kar-wai...

Cinema is boring. Tv is boring. I would rather just read. I can't concentrate on a film. However, I spend all day reading.
I just watch movies to talk with those faggots from the local Art School during their art presentations. It's impossible otherwise.
Not in order, and only one per director (otherwise too much Tarkovsky, Kurosawa and Tárr)

(I also considere Braindead and Repo Man to be some of my favorite movies, since they're the most entertaining films ever, but I went with the artistic qualities.)

I haven't seen it myself yet but I'm guessing it's a film primarily for those to imagine themselves as some sort of art house aficionados or cinephiles.


Fuck, I forgot my 10th film since I'm more used to listing nine due to 3x3. Anyway number 10 is Dr Stangelove.

it is a grand glorious adventure infused with the joy of movie making, the whole thing is like a kid playing with toys and is so sincerely fun and naive that i don't know how anyone can't like it. it has heart by the gallon, naomi watts at her most beautiful, dinosaurs, giant insects, the most well realised sympathetic movie animal ever, a gorgeous soundtrack, and is so oversized and enthusiastic that i can't help but love it.
OGF is like a modern Greek Tragedy (yeah, I know, this sounds cringe-worthy) with a precise Freudian subtext. People will say it's style over substance but cinema is a visual medium, the style is the substance, Refn perfectly understands that and that's why he focuses mainly on little details that you would ignore if they were more dialogues.
>and is so oversized
This is the problem of the film. The original is a lot better and Braindead is clearly Jackson's best.
Here's my personal list :

1)The Shawshank Redemption
2)The Godfather
3)The Godfather pt2
4)The Dark Knight
5)Pulp Fiction
6)The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
7)Schindler's List
8)12 Angry Men
9)TLOTR : Return of the King
10)Fight Club
what can i say, i have a weakness for sprawl

the original film is great too
>6. Das Leben der Anderen (2006)
Neger, bitte...
That post wasn't satire. Source: I wrote it.

I haven't seen Interstellar. Memento was great, but since then Nolan seems to have been going downhill. Having said that, I guess Christmas is the time for big dumb space adventures on Imax.
Proves my point... Nightcrawler is satire.
Oh, I thought you meant my post was ironic. >>5797478 would have to be pretty dumb to miss that Nightcrawler was satirical, no?

Anyway, was a good film. Weirdly old-fashioned, in that I'm sure the exact same story could have been made back in the 1970s with no changes, but then maybe that's more a reflection on how TV news hasn't changed much.
>maybe that's more a reflection on how TV news hasn't changed much

imo it seemed kind of outdated since nobody really gets their news primarily from TV anymore.

News today is far more politicized too instead of being solely about gritty violence (although of course violence can be politicized, but it wasn't in the movie).
Off the top of my head, including some more recent stuff sort of descending order

Chungking express
TRee of life
Monty pythons meaning if life
Blade runner
Fallen angels
Blue velvet
Andrei rublev
Synecdoche new york
The worlds end

My list would be:
1- City Lights
2- Vertigo
3-The Red Shoes
4-The Apartment
5-The Night Of The Hunter
7-2001: A Space Oddyssey
8-Paris, Texas
9-L' Avventura
10-La Haine

Why The Worlds End? I thought it was pretty weak compared to the rest of the trilogy.

1) Withnail and I
2) Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
3) Kind Hearts and Coronets
4) The House of Fear (Sherlock Holmes)
5) Valhalla Rising
6) Drive
7) The Thing ('82)
8) Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
9) Sir Henry of Rawlinson's End
10) In Bruges

If you liked Spirited Away that much then you should really really check out Over the Garden Wall, a new series made very much in the same vein, though the aesthetic is more old americanish.

> not Drive

It's best rewatched & the comedy is just very subtle and well written. The soundtrack is incredible too, I own it on vinyl.
Checking out the films I haven't seen from your list. Do you like Slacker?
I'd never heard of it before, but I've bookmarked its wikipedia page now. Out of all the films on my list, what's it most like?
Your list is sausagefest
Slacker is like a bad version of Gummo.
ever heard of IMDB?
I thought it was the best but ive heard plenty of valid reasons to the contrary, they're all great. For me, TWE just felt the most emotional and very organic in its connection of theme and content. It had that lovely quality of being a film you could recommend to most people without reservation. It did drag during the 3rd act but not as bad as the other two. I just loved it and found it to be very rewatchable and just lots of fun.
I like them both a lot. Are there any other movies like that, random snapshots of a small dysfunctional town/plotless moments of disconnected entropy? I suppose Gummo has more connectedness but you know what I mean.
I wouldn't say it's resoundingly similar to any of them but I really like Fear and Loathing, The Thing, Drive and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy so I was wondering if you'd heard of another movie I really liked too because it's from like 91 and somewhat known.
>Иди и cмотри [Come and See] (1985)
my nigger
Ive been meaning to check out last life, but the plot description turned me off, take it there's more to it than that?
that's a pretty superficial comparison
In no particular order:

La Dolce Vita (Fellini, 1960)
Cinema Paradiso (Tornatore, 1988)
Enter the Void (Noe, 2009)
Hombre Mirando al Sudeste (Subiela, 1986)
Breaking the Waves (von "Shock Value" Trier, 1996)

...I can't think of others. I'm still stuck at the entry level.
True, comparing Linklater and Korine seems very far off.

Korine is of the greatest American directors currently working and a true visionary.

Linklater's only good films are the before trilogy. His whole career is based around stoner speak and he is the most visually bland of any respected directors.
I'm the guy who likes Slacker and Gummo. I was considering checking out most of what Korine has done already, I'll probably watch Julien Donkey-Boy today because of your post. I've never watched the Before Trilogy so I'll check that out soon as well. Thanks to you from a pleb.
