Why does everyone hate letterboxd these days? Come on, let's share and share alike. Break bread with your fellow anon. Let's make this happen.
What movies you seen recently? Any actually good ones?
Cries and Whispers (1972)
>Red. The color of love, anger, and pain all buried under a puritanical facade, bubbling and volatile. Bergman's Cries and Whispers is repressive chamber drama masterfully executed.
>Apatow helps Amy Schumer bring her stage persona to life. He's still afraid to kill his darlings or at least hire somebody to do it for him, but I can deal with 15 minutes of overkill and dubbing every possible joke into the final cut. That's his signature at this point and in the comedic movie drought thanks to television, it's kind of grown on me. I'd like to see him launch more talent this way. I wouldn't mind seeing the Jesselnik equivalent of this sometime in the future.
The General (1926)
>This was my introduction to the legendary Buster Keaton and it did not disappoint. While I'm always wary that comedy will age like milk, this is fine wine. His knack for physical high jinks is universal. I really enjoyed myself though it runs out of steam a bit in the final act.
Mistress America (2015)
>Mistress America is a spirited coming of age picture that manages to capture the beginning and end of that journey. Baumbach and Gershwig continue to understand youth culture and do interesting things with it. They make picking a movie to watch with the girlfriend so much easier.
I've narrowed it down to one of these three tonight. Decide for me, please.
Best film you've watched in 2016 so far?
>Why does everyone hate letterboxd these days?
because it's tumblr for avant-teen cinephiles? anyway, why would anyone use it when cinemos' launch is imminent
Why can't those kiwis fuckers stop shilling their merchandise and premium memberships and fix their fucking site so it doesn't crash every goddamn day.
Why is she so perfect lads?
>Why does everyone hate letterboxd these days
Because there are at least two users ITT who unironically praised The Hateful 8
This place is infested with literal Redditors and underaged. Leave the sinking ship while you still can
it's literally embarrassing that you're using that film as a means to demonstrate letterboxd's short comings.
but I guess faux edginess is something that gets you lots of upvotes on reddit, right?
I was talking more about this general rather than letterboxd as a whole, and if you need it explained to you why exactly letterboxd as a whole is shit you're either new or part of the problem
>but I guess faux edginess is something that gets you lots of upvotes on reddit, right?
Just like Hateful 8 and the underage edgelords who defend it, sure
I thought Hateful 8 was really good. Not amazing, but really good. Better than django imo.
