What is the most perfect film of all time, from start to finish, with not one bad scene in the entire film? Cinematography, direction, soundtrack, sound direction, choreography, acting, everything comes into play here.
I'm going to have to go with an obvious candidate here. pic related.
Please go post in the cuckold threads.
That was the point of the film... It completely changes pace once you realize the main character isn't the one getting his sweet revenge, it's actually about the antagonist getting the revenge on the protagonist. The change of pace signifies that realization.
I respect your opinion but I can sit here and argue why I think Oldboy is the most perfect film ever made. If you don't mind.
A well rounded movie with great performances and a emotionally charged score to boot. However, it's just too plebeian for my tastes... Not trying to sound pretentious or anything. It's the common man's winner. It doesn't really do anything special or extraordinary to make it the greatest film ever made however.
Instead of posting here you should join the other 200 cuckold threads, blacked threads, and star wars meme threads.
this isn't really an oldboy thread. It's just my opinion. I would make an actual oldboy thread if I wanted to talk about it.
Drive is good. Better? Not sure I would agree with that. Feel free to explain why.
That's a great film. Definitely a contender.
Exactly what I said. It's a fantastic film, but it doesn't do anything I (me only) would consider "extraordinary". However, it seems to really resonate with the common people, because it's a rather depressing film that ends on a feelgood note. With that being said, the overall direction, composition and exposition of the film is nothing out of the ordinary.
Did you guys not just go out and see Hateful 8? Should this thread even exist? God damn'it that film was an experience. I honestly love some of my favorites such as Dr. Strangelove, Fight Club, Mad Max: Fury Road, but holy shit Hateful 8 was on another level. Everything was perfect, the plot, the setting, the score, the characters, the begining, the middle, the end, the gore, the entire feeling. Held together mostly by some Tarantino story telling. I might just feel this way because I just got done watching it for the first time but it was damn well worth the 11 dollar ticket. If you haven't seen it please do so.
I haven't seen it yet but I plan on seeing it the same day as The Revenant. I like Tarantino a little bit. His direction is a little superfluous and his style is a little over the top, but he knows how to entertain or suspend the audiences belief that he indeed has some sort of "talent". Truly a maestro of copycat work.
Pedantic? Yes. In that it is the most perfect film ever made in my eyes. Shallow? You would have to explain a little more.
Equilibrium, STALKER, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Moon.
Peanut butter and Jelly Pizza Hotpocket.
Not sure about the fight club since I haven't watched it but I agree with H8 being an awesome film. It's the first and only movie I've seen from him and I now consider watching his other movies, chronologically. Should I, though? I've heard him being a spectacular director.
maybe you actually are involved in film or something, but it seems like your speaking in generalities. Extraordinary? did you want some unique camera shots? or is the plot not unique enough for you? I can really grasp what you are saying without some examples.
I'm not dogging your opinion. It just seems like you are speaking from maybe how you felt about the film versus a academic criticism.
if you don't like over the top, you won't like Hateful 8. He brings out the most from actors and actresses and I don't feel like most directors do that, they just settle with good enough. And he really does have "talent", it takes some special thinking to reach a level he is at. Maybe not in the same way as Kubrick or Wes Anderson but still amazing. And if anyone actually believes he stole the idea of Django Unchained can got suck a fat one.
If I went into detail I would have to pull actual scenes from the movie and then explain to you in depth, why I think the movie is too ordinary, which is really not possible in this setting. Speaking in generalities is the only way I can get my form across without breaching civilities.
It's not a bad film by any means. It's a wonderful film. But it just doesn't have that IMPACT, when you watch it.
It has the emotional impact, I will give you that, but it's missing everything else.
seen it so many times ..over decades of time
I would watch his films, but you don't really have to watch them in order. They are all unique and captivating in their own way. But all have the Tarantino touch. I would highly recommend Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, and Kill Bill vol 1 and 2. I think they best describe his work.
I think I can describe to you better if I talk about why I think Oldboy is the best. The technical aspects (direction, sound, cinematography, acting) perfectly coincide with the emotional aspects (plot and characters). It creates this aura and gives off an awe almost completely through the film. It's something rarely felt when watching a film. Something so unique, so perfectly crafted, that as you watch it, you begin to disembowel it piece by piece, and when you are finished you are compelled almost immediately to watch it a second, third, maybe fourth time. It's simply wonderful film. I would describe it as perfect, with its only flaw being that nothing has made me feel that way since I first watched it. I just wish I was able to see it in theaters.
I could go into depth, but I didn't gain that feeling from watching Shawshank. the technical aspects didn't mesmerize me just as much as the emotional. And I think that's criteria that much be met when establishing something as dubious as the "best movie ever made"
Then again it's all subjective.

I think you had a very great experience with Old Boy, where I had a semi-great one. I just felt like the ending was a bit rushed and didn't flow well with the rest. Both the beginning-middle and end parts were great, just didn't match one and other for me. Also if you get past the 2 major shock factors of the movie, it's slightly dull in my opinon. Still pretty great though. And for Shawshank, I think it had a fantastic story that is still a classic to watch now, but it's only a classic to me. Just a little dated on what great potential film has today. Amazing acting by the entire cast though, and an amazing story. But it feels lack luster the 4th or 5th time you watch it. By the way this is the fag that jerked off to Hateful 8.
No problem. And I hope you enjoy them. I could keep going by recommending everything by him, but I don't have anymore lotion to jerk Tarantino off with,
Just watched that with my girlfriend, so good. Probably my favorite acting done by a child star. I just wish it would have went a little deeper with the Leon. My opinion though.
I thought hateful 8 was too long. The dialog just seemed so forced, almost to pad the movie for length. I think if the most was 2 hours instead of 3. Then it would have been 10/10
Great caste though. Highlights from Russell, and moggins/oggins, not sure his name off the top of my head.
I feel as if the ending to Oldboy was as fitting as any story gets. Of course it's left up to the audience whether Oh Dae Su gets to live out his life in happiness, or agony. Beyond knowing Mido was his daughter, could he still channel his love and be happy? Well, it's certainly ambiguous, but his anguish laden face and the sequence where the "monster" side of him is clearly the one who lives proves otherwise. The story came full circle, so the ending while abrupt, was fitting enough to not detract from the entire film itself. What more could have been shown? I'm not so sure myself. I love the film so fully and completely that I would not want to add or remove any scene.
Excuse me if the thoughts in this post are a bit jumbled.
only old fags know how to not get "hello reddit"ted. welcome to the club.
Honestly, those 3 hours felt like nothing to me. I went by myself so that I didn't get any distraction. I don't know why but every chapter just felt so necessary and perfect and I would not have changed a single thing to make it better. I wish I could have seen it in 70mm.
>everything is great everything is great tarantino is great oh my god the black dingus tastes so good i love it everything is great i love it so much
that has very little to do with not following that single narrative of autism but with you being a massive redditor faggot
I've only been on /tv/ since 12 or 13 but I'm honored to be welcomed into the club.
What I would do to go into it for the very first time again..
Trainspotting will always have a special spot in my heart.
Barry Lyndon is one Kubrick film I have yet to check out. Will need to soon.
I love watching films, but for some reason I have always found myself to avoid this film like the plague. I think I'm scared I won't like it or that there is too much hype. I had that feeling during Taxi Driver and American Psycho. Both are objectively great, but people built too much hype for me to enjoy.
I can tell you, objectively and from my personal taste that the Godfather is really a masterpiece. The movie I watched that didn't live up to the hype was Trainspotting, it was so disappointing.
>any time Vito is on screen
>any time Sonny and Tom are together on screen
>any time Michael does something to push him into the life he wanted to avoid
Movies with no criticisms I can think of and keep my attention 100%
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Empire Strikes Back
Memories of Murder
The Hidden Fortress
Reservoir Dogs (Pulp Fiction is a better movie but I didn't like Tarantino's acting and Butch and his Girlfriend talked too much)
slow pacing doesnt make the godfather worse. it doesnt make it better either but if you tried to give a movie like the godfather the pacing of goodfellas it would be in bad taste and feel disingenuous
the acting is great in both movies but i characters in the godfather are given incredible depth that i dont feel in goodfellas
the godfather has beautiful cinematography, goodfellas does too but it isnt definitively better
the godfather just has better music, a beautiful score.
the matrix revolutions was incredibly good. though. it was well made, and it was plotted perfectly. the only thing that was off about it, according to you people, was that it ended up in a place story wise that wasn't agreeable to a percentage of you.
LITERALLY the only thing not perfect in Cure is the kinda stupid sound effects for blunt objects banging against people's heads.

I'm serious, it's flawless.
10/10 cinematography, 10/10 soundtrack, 10/10 screenplay, 10/10 directing, it's great from start to finish

Remember guys, the film has to be extremely old and/or unenjoyable
Only plebs care if they had "fun" or "enjoyed" watching a movie, real cinema buffs watch films for groundbreaking new filming techniques and the self satisfaction of sitting through obscure 50's movies they hate.
It achieved a blurring between reality and insanity that's rare to find outside of works directed by Satoshi Kon. Also features that guy that can't win oscars giving off yet another almost-oscar-worthy performance.
Because the story took a left turn into Hollow Jesus Analogy and didn't try and do anything interesting with the fundamental premise of the setting that the original movie laid out.
Second movie was wasted self wankery.
Revolutions was just bad.
Unlike Star Wars the Matrix EU is way better.
>not a single "marienbad"
Hmmm. I suggest you people watch the film.
