Why is /tv/ so anti-art?
Why is this board filled with capeshitters and celebrity worshippers?
Why is board filled with faux intellectuals that praise directors like Paul Thomas Anderson and David Fincher?
Why doesn't this board discuss proper cinema?
We used to be a lot more "pretentious" and then everyone started making fun of each other for being pretentious for some reason. I think it might have just been because we became "popular" after the Game of Thrones tv show came out and were just overtaken if that makes sense.
Howdy, Slop-jockey! Now that you've introduced yourself, Tell us how you became the retarded shitposter OP just described.
Most 4chan boards are elitist enough to develop some underground sensibilities and recommend a catalog of things that most people have never heard of. This is a good thing, because it means it is beneficial to browse here instead of just keeping up with ads and conversations and finding out what everybody is watching. /tv/ is perhaps the worst board at doing this because of the retards who whine about pretentious hipsters and fail to understand that 4chan is all about feeling superior to other people.
PTA is the dictionary definition of entry level pleb cinema. he not only steals from better directors, but he does it without any irony like tarantino
i am personally fine with it though. because through PTA, all these freshmen college students will discover Robert Altman, who was the real deal. they will discover Scorsese, the most important American film director of our time, they will discover Kubrick, and the Coen Bros
through Altman, they will discover Renoir, through Kubrick, they will discover Ophuls, Scorsese to Fellini. suddenly they realize PTA was just a child with no original thoughts in his head, that his films just revolve around quoting better directors while adding epic catch phrases like "I drink your milkshake!" and "Pig fuck!" really there is no bigger clue in to how meaningless his cinema is when the only thing people discuss when mentioning his movies are 'le epic catch phrases, dude!'
you might say great artist steal, but what Picasso meant by this is that great artists are able to understand what works and manipulate it. PTA merely 'mimics'. this is why it is completely obvious who he is mimicking from film to film
I wouldn't say it's about feeling superior, but I do enjoy going to a board and discuss something that isn't capeshit number #1321312 or see all the new memes spammed every day.
Literally no one said. Good job making yourself look retarded.
He's not pretentious at all and he is certainly no Orson Welles. PTA's intentions are good but there's one thing he's missing and it's what all artists should strive for, originality and identity. He just apes better directors and calls it a day, when he should be aiming to do his own thing.
PTA doesn't mimic, he lets his influences show in his work, like every other director you mentioned. If anything he likely one-ups much of them by writing all his own stuff.
Besides, most freshmen discover Scorsese, Kubrick and the Coens before PTA. I was only fifteen in 2007 when the man hit his peak and earned his place among the all time greats.
Just because you don't get PTA doesn't mean he doesn't have an identity.
I really like your PTA is inauthentic meme. Not the quality of it, more the persistence of you. Nobody cared in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 etc but every now and then you still feel the need to force it again.
Here's my advice: Nobidy gives a shit. People will still watch PTA, same as Scorsese, Michael Bay or Capeshit. You are not enlightening anyone because nobody cares about how far you can stick your head up your ass.
Maybe you should start making your own movies - be productive instead of cynical.
