Whiplash (2014) OST
>jazz, why haven't you seen this film yet
Requesting Lord Huron's Lonesome Dreams, any JJ Cale, or Kris Kristofferson's self-titled.
>>jazz, why haven't you seen this film yet
I've seen it. It's mediocre at best, tho it's well-shot.
Also this ost is pretty much overplayed jazz standards why would anyone want them?
HEY LET'S TAKE A CHARACTER WHO'S LIKE THAT SCREAMING DUDE FROM FULL METAL JACKET AND PLACE HIM IN COLLEGE
YES! MUSIC! THIS IS FOOKIN ART MOVIE SHOULD BE ABOUT ART!
AND THEN LET'S MAKE SOME CLICHE PRETENTIOUS BASIC SPORTS DRAMA ABOUT BREAKING THROUGH AND BECOMING THE BEST NO MATTER WHAT!
YEAH, AND WE SHOULD PUT SOME GRINDCORE SHIT IN THE END JUST FOR FUN - PERFECT ENDING!
AND YET IT'S ABOUT MUSIC! JAZZ MUSIC! JAZZ IS LIKE HIGHEST LVL ART POSSIBLE IN MUSIC! FOOKIN RITE!
AND THAT OTHER DUDE, YOU KNOW THE STUDENT, HE SHOULD ADORE SOME COOL JAZZ DRUMMER! LIKE... UGH... *google 'greatest jazz drummer of all time excluding Ringo Starr'*
LE BUDDY RICH
NOW WE JUST HAVE TO HIRE ONE MEDIOCRE ACTOR WHO CAN SCREAM LOUD AND EVERYONE WILL THINK IT'S A MASTERPISS!
OH YEAH, WE SHOULD DROP SOME FACTS LIKE... UGH... BLOOD WAS FOOKIN REAL! AND THE ACTORS WERE PLAYING ALL MUSIC BY THEMSELVES!
PUUUURRRRRRFFFFFFEEEEEEECCCCCTTTTT OSCAR IS OURS
Jesus, are you even capable of communicating your ideas without memespeak?
Regardless, it's clear to me from your post that most of the film's themes and subtext went over your head. It's also obvious you have bias and way too many preconceptions to have judged this piece objectively.
>Jesus, are you even capable of communicating your ideas without memespeak?
Don't you think I did it on purpose so you could actually read a pile of shit and take some serious view points of, just like you did?
>most of the film's themes and subtext went over your head
Yes, you get it right. You are the smart one here, I'm the dumb one.
>you have bias and way too many preconceptions
Bullseye! Memes aside, you're great at this.
Tell me more.
I can tell you're not interested in an actual discussion, but are hurling memes and sarcasm with abandon, which doesn't do much to contribute to anything.
And say what you want about Simmons' questionable filmography, his performance in this movie was above average, at the least.
this movie was karate kid bullshit
well made bullshit, but still
Mo' Better Blues
New York, New York (1977)
24 Hour Party People
I'm Not There
Inside Llewyn Davis
American Pop (1981)
Sweet and Lowdown
This Is Spinal Tap
A Mighty Wind
Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser (doc)
Ornette: Made in America (1985) (doc)
A Great Day in Harlem (1995) (doc)
all infinitely better than whip
the J.K. Simmons character is a one dimensional bad guy representing the obstacle/sacrifice that an artist is willing overcome/endure/make to be a great artist
it also treats music like competitive sports, which is fucking ridicilous
it's a pretty simplistic movie imo
simmons is an ok actor, so he kinda makes up for it
in fact he's the only good thing about the movie, other than the technical aspects which are also good
Not even close. The character had plenty of depth.
No it doesn't. That may be one viewpoint, but not the students nor the professor treat it like sports, despite the competition aspect. Simmons pushes them hard not even because of his high standards, but because he knows that they need to be able to handle the duress.
There was a lot of subtext and even complexity that you apparently missed.
Up for debate. I think he did a stellar job.
