Sicario had a hard life. :(
How did a prosecutor become so operator? Is it required training in Mexico since they're in danger from the people they put away (iirc journalists get killed there more than any other country, do they become operator too)?
/tv/ recommended Strike Back in a Sicario thread when I asked for more operatorcore. I'm watching it now and enjoying it. Thanks for the great rec, guys. What else is there?
>you are now hearing the theme song in your head
WAS IT THE SPIRITUAL SEQUEL TO TRAFFIC (2000)??
This "Sicario is amazing" meme needs to die.
The script was utter dogshit. It looked great, the actors were admirable, solidly edited, atmospheric score. But the writing... you could tell the writer has amateur at best knowledge on the subject. It was all very hokey and sensationalist, with dialogue that wouldn't be out of place on a Law and Order episode (This is the land of wolves). And then there were the contrivances. That Jon Bernthal scene was such a mess from a writing standpoint. The motherfucker happens to have that specific wrist band linked to the drug money in a previous scene? Fuck off. And all the characters other than the three mains were just wastes. I give this movie a 6/10 based on the atmosphere, performances, and other little things, but this won't win any awards and rightly so.
Its not a meme it is a great movie and critically praised. Only people that didnt like it are sissy faggots that watch exclusively art foreign films on the basis that it makes them think they look smart. No ones impressed you didnt like this movie.
Did you even watch the movie? She doesnt have a sexual relationship with the black dude actually cucks him with a white dude at the bar. Also when shes in her bra he likes it but shes basically treats him like her gay friend.
I love Fincher, why cant you like both? Why does it have to be a competition on whose better everytime? Are you autistic? Zodiac is one of my favorite movies. Sicario and prisoners are top tier thrillers. Very well shot, acting on point and writing is good.
If you are watching movies purely on how good the writing is then why the fuck dont you just read books? Film is a visual medium.
>Sicario and prisoners are top tier thrillers.
From the /v/eddit perspective. No one who has shed blood for the medium shares this opinion.
Not a single person has thought that Prisoners or Sicario were above a 7/10 who wasn't an adult video game player.
This is literally wishful thinking you cuck. There is no evidence they have a relationship outside of being partners. On the other hand their is a plethora of evidence that they arent fucking
No modern white woman could be around a BBC for that long without succumbing to her desires. Literally nothing in the first suggests they aren't fucking and if you knew anything about the world today, basement dweller, you'd know that they must probably were.
Prisoners was nominated for best cinematography.
Name 5 other thrillers that came out in the past 5-10 years that top them
Your criticisms just reak of being a troll
>ur from reddit meme
>adult videogame players
You are pathetic
>Prisoners was nominated for best cinematography.
Because Deakins is a meme cinematographer.
>Name 5 other thrillers that came out in the past 5-10 years that top them
Whether other better thrillers do or do not exist has no bearing on the quality of prisoners.
But Zodiac, Memories of A Murder, No Country For Old Men, The Lives Of Others, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
I think that's why it will crash at the Oscars. No sex scene with the black guy. And there was a sentence in the movie that said bad things about drug use. Calling it. No Oscars for Sicario.
I wish. It's just /tv/'s way of "ironic" shitposting now.
Trendy to praise. Contagious unearned acclaim. Fedora tippers line up to give tounge baths to Deakins because they've seen the other film buffs in their club house doing the same and he's also one of the 3 cinematographers they actually know by name.
>BASED DEAKINS ROBBED AGAIN
>Because Deakins is a meme cinematographer.
ok. so.. wtf?
is he just rubbing his cock up against this guy or wut?
it seemed like del taco was going to one of the following:
a. beat him with the bottle
b. make him drink all the water in the bottle
c. water board him
d. raep his face
scene seemed really weird and out of place, but i thought it was interesting
>Their later seasons are definitely getting lazy with infinite ammo magazines and such.
The best season was actually the first one(season 0). The english one. With the guy from walking dead.
>Sicario means "Hitman" in Mexico
Not sure how true that is, but that is the tagline, and he is a hitman no doubt.
"Medellin" is what his enemies call him because he technically works for the Colombian Cartel that wants its power back from the Mexican Cartels.
>muh trendiest bowie album
Literally kekking out loud. Picking the most arty bowie album is like giving an award to the smartest retard. The man is a shill fraud.
>Viddy viddy at the cheena
How can you defend this man?
dude being in enforcement makes you dull to nudity like that
she literally doesn't care he's in the room. those types they were acting as use mixed showers in many cases
you won't even make it in the army if you can't handle that shit
BEEP BOOP BEEP BOOP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEEP BEEEEEEP
That's cause they were just good partners. Sometimes there are people who you theoretically could fuck, but you've been in a platonic relationship so long that you don't really see them that way anymore.
"When getting ready to ice a car full of cartel thugs, make sure to look away for a moment to make them think you've lost focus. Then you can quickly take them out and claim self defense when they make a move on you."
You read that in Michael Westen's voice
>As Hunter Thompson wrote in his article "The Banshee Screams for Buffalo Meat" (1977), the legal department of the publisher of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas said the book could not be published without clearance by Acosta, as references to him were recognizable. Acosta initially refused the clearance, saying that he was insulted by Thompson's alteration of his race -- Thompson had described him as a "300-pound Samoan." He understood, however, that inserting his real name and race would necessitate extensive rewriting and delay publication of the book, so he promised clearance provided that his name and picture would appear on the dustjacket.
Fucking love Thompson.
>He understood, however, that inserting his real name and race would necessitate extensive rewriting and delay publication of the book, so he promised clearance provided that his name and picture would appear on the dustjacket.
Just do a find and replace > replace all
I like how he asks if the kids speak English, as if he wants to spare them from any trauma. Makes the guy think his kids lives will be spared, so the shock of them getting blown away is even greater.
>now you'll learn what is hell in devaron land.
just finished watching this. Started off so promisingly then
>a guy trained as a prosecutor suddenly becomes an operator on tier with Delta because he is fueled by rage
took me out of the film completely
well okay, it's not sudden but its still not ever explained how he got top tier training in everything (to the point of being a better fighter than the deltas in the tunnel with him, he goes straight through) and the only times he's actually fought are when he's been "let loose". The implication is that his power comes from fuel
Some scenes had shitty composition
Shitty and slow trama
Not enough violence
Some dialogs were like ''wtf''
Some long and tedious scenes
Wa enterteining to watch
But still shit
you're just overthinking this in that way that teenagers do.
it's a movie. it's passive entertainment.
you're not supposed to think about it too much.
not saying that film/cinema cannot be art, but this movie is obviously just a run of the mill hollywood movie.
sorry if you were expecting more anon.
look at things more realistically and youy won't be so disappointed.
>initially set up as a badass female agent
>spends the rest of the movie being belittled, used, assaulted, and threatened. acomplishes nothing and ends the ordeal a broken person
was this a deconstruction of the whole STRONK WOMAN phenomenon?
>after he shoots his family: "Finish your meal."
she can obviously handle herself, her thing is that she wants to do every by the books under the power structure in place. but she's helpless against the power that the people she's now working with have (brolin and del toro)
