Typical. I bet you nurse an Oedipal complex too.
Anon, you seem to have made a huge mistake. You were the one who brought up Star Wars as a non-sequitur to show what "great" taste you have in films because you like a Russian hack and someone disagrees with you. I hope you learn from this grave mistake because I won't always be there to point it out for you. Thanks.
Going to be honest, I thought Stalker was tremendously boring. Could have easily cut like half an hour out of the film and made it a bit pacier. One of the very few films I actually fast forwarded through some segments because I just knew nothing was going to happen but some depressed looking dudes stared at each other/the environment for like five minutes.
Not at all what he was implying. Stalker IS boring. It has more walking than LOTR, but there's nothing happening along the way. Dialogue is just pointless bickering.
I tried watching Stalker recently, it had a cool aesthetic but the dialogue wasn't really that deep. Like the writer said he didn't want to be remembered for a 100 years but forever... and that's it, he doesn't talk about it any further.
What was the point of the last scene? Did I miss how it related to the rest of the movie or was it just a little sci-fi treat? I get it's the stalker's "punishment" for venturing into the zone so often, but is there any more to it?
>What was the point of the last scene?
Maybe to show the zone actually was special, and that the writer and professor were dumb for doubting the power of the zone and wishing room
OP, here. It's debatable whether Stalker is truly a 10/10. You aren't supposed to agree with every movie posted in this thread. However, I would appreciate it if you posted a film you think is 10/10 so I can expand my horizons.
Personal 10/10, I wouldn't change a thing
Why does /tv/ always ignore Fellini? 8½ is also a 10/10 masterpiece.
Russel Crowe was so hot. This an Gladiator. Wha happen?
my vote for 10/10 is The Godfather and pic related.
La Dolce Vida was a personal favorite of Roger Ebert's.
>that scene where Baum talks with the guy 1-on-1 in Vegas
that scene where they find out they were betting against themselves
The "what happened to them after the movie" section where it says that Burry started investing in fucking water
STALKER Is Literally One Of The Worst Movies Ever Created; So Fucking boring. First Off, It's Super Slow. I'd Have More Fun Watching Paint Dry Then I Did Watching This Movie. Second, Why Does The Main Guy always Throw Those Nuts? Like, Nothing Ever Happens. Thirdly, None Of The Dialog is Interesting; All They talk About Is Meh, I Want To Go This Way And Meh I Want To Go The Quick Way. Or Whenever The Main Russian Is On The Verge Of Crying Whenever He Tells Them About The Zone Or Whatever. Lastly, How In The Hell Did The Phone Ring If Nothing Else In The Area Worked, Like What The Hell Was The Point Of That Whole Scene. All Of A Sudden The One Guy Has A Bomb To Blow Some Place Up. The Place Doesn't Even Grant Wishes, It Was All In Their Heads. Also, Wtf Was Up With The Girl At The End Who Had Magneto Powers, What Was The Point. It Just Ended Right After Showing You She Has Superpowers. Like It Could Have Explored That And The Movie Would Be A Thousand Times Better. All Of You Don't Realize How Shit The Movie Is And You All Think It Is Godlike Because Its Old And Your All Contrarians. Go Watch Something Else Super Boring For Your Time Instead Of Shitposting Over Here About Your Shitty Fucking Movies.
pretentious pseuds with no taste usually parade Herzog as the paragon of fine cinema because they have no idea how framing or mise en scene works. Herzog has interesting ideas but makes very ugly and formless films, technically speaking.
I consider his documentaries part of a different group than his fiction films. In documentaries, ideas, storytelling, and editing predominates, which Herzog excels at. However he cannot use the intrinsically visual elements of filmmaking well imo, and his tracking shots end up looking embarrassing because he doesn't seem to understand why long takes exist, and his camera angles are so clumsy and uninspired that it's like he's filming ugly theater without staging.
I've only seen his docu's so I guess I have no place to defend him. I heard the one about the boat was pretty good though? Maybe people were just saying that because he actually dragged the fucking boat across land or whatever he did
Idk maybe I just don't like the guy, but Fitzcarraldo is one of my less favorite of his films. 'White ambitious man gets natives to carry steamship over a mountain' is literally all you need to know, and you've seen the film basically. Even Aguirre I'm not particularly fond of, which seems to be everyone's favorite. I would recommend The Enigma of Kasper Hauser though, probably my favorite, though Stroszek is pretty all right, too
Lot of people complain about the breaking the fourth wall, explaining it to the audience like the audience is retarded approach, because nobody else ever fucking did. It's entertaining and scary and most importantly it's fucking educational. I understood generally what happened, but I had no idea about "synthetic CDO's". So I got to experience that AH SHEEIT moment with the character.
I agree, Steve Carrel and I were both freaking out at the same time. Although I have heard the film leaves out a lot of stuff to make it seem like it was just Wall Street behind it. Going to do some more research myself, still a great film
Yeah Wall Street defenders seem to have beef. Some of the negative reviews are totally just defending the banks and wall street. Washington post accuses it of Marxism. I thought it did a pretty good job of making it so that there weren't really "bad guys." Everyone was just behaving in a system that no one person made. Really they didn't even bother touching on the fact that the ball really started rolling when Glass-Steagall was repealed.

pseudo-intellectual faggot. It was the essence of film as a medium. I recommend you to read Tarkovskys book
>attacks Inside Llewyn Davis, merely a flick, as pseudo-intellectual
>you'll grow up, some day
Never change, /tv/
Years ahead of its time.
I watched it with my sister yesterday and we had a blast,the script is amazing,visuals are unmatched in style.
>we all have a user
it enters a realm where philosophical questions are opened in a modern setting.
Dont know if this is by accident or not I will listen the commentary track and report back later today.
>only recognize Nanook of the north
All shitposting and flick-movie-film memes aside, I really should watch more movies...
>posting a literal 6/10 on a 10/10 thread
This kind of choice is worse than memes, because the spouters actually believe what they're saying. Even Legacy is better.
Reddit is clearly more up to your speed ;)
>not knowing that it was made in in the hardest period for Disney when no actor wanted to work with them
>not knowing it was made in 65mm
>not knowing that this movie set the standards for modern lightning and hand made animation.
