to be frank with you family, your unhealthy obsession with Mira is probably a large component in why she doesn't swing by anymore
the miranna obsession is by far the cringiest thing I've ever seen from these threads.
Like seriously, do the anons just literally have no way of comprehending how to interact with women?
>Stalker as one of your favourite
>cringiest thing in these threads
>not the "my baby girl's top 100" list or the amaranth collage
I dunno what the baby girl top 100 thing is but basically miranna gets seen as the new amaranth around here.
I mean, what was so special about her taste? At least amaranth had a unique weird taste, Miranna is literally no different to other regular posters around here.
Check your plebness.
I didn't link my profile that was somebody else tho
And you better watch your step fellas, or I'll get my nigga thekidofawesome to beat them asses back in line
The decission to have only 4 movies as favorites and recent watches is rustling my autism. 3 or 5 I can live by, but 4? Fuck.
I thought you were the one who posted your profile. I'm sorry for torpedoing you friend
Who's seen something good lately? Before i go back and rewatch Potemkin
Good brazilian recs needed
Gonna watch Bridge of Spies and Spectre later today, what to expect from them?
Heard that BoS is either good or sentimental grey morality thriller and Spectre I've just seen trashed
Patrician comin' through
>go away for weekend
>come back and lots of essential machillcore has been uploaded
PS, The Revenant was a fairly shit/average movie partially disguised by the fact it was lensed by the worlds greatest cinematographer doing some of his best work. If you disagree, then
you have a different opinion to me, and I am interested to hear yours
fuck off they're both just same retarded manchild cinematography of 'eyy pretty pics make for good cinematography' that has no interest in how it tells the story or narrative its shit
stop being bamboozled by le handheld camera nature meme
pick any post-1940 ozu and it'll have better cinematography, guaranteed. but it's not as in-your-face so plebs like you don't rate it as highly
>Just a letterboxd user who happened to be a girl
post yfw /r9k/edditors give Miranna more attention than regular /lbg/ers do and pretend like they don't and call everyone any buzzmeme like autist/neckbear/manchild/virgin
Each of the past three centuries was dominated by a single new technology.
The 18th century was the era of the great mechanical systems accompanying the
Industrial Revolution. The 19th century was the age of the steam engine. During
the 20th century, the key technology was information gathering, processing, and
distribution. Among other developments, we saw the installation of worldwide
telephone networks, the invention of radio and television, the birth and unprecedented
growth of the computer industry, the launching of communication satellites,
and, of course, the Internet.
As a result of rapid technological progress, these areas are rapidly converging
in the 21st century and the differences between collecting, transporting, storing,
and processing information are quickly disappearing. Organizations with hundreds
of offices spread over a wide geographical area routinely expect to be able
to examine the current status of even their most remote outpost at the push of a
button. As our ability to gather, process, and distribute information grows, the demand
for ever more sophisticated information processing grows even faster.
Movies for this feel?
Rango to Great Train Robbery is my neutral zone, but all of the ones up to Joe Kidd have some redeeming qualities.
Thanks m8, I think Duck, You Sucker is very underrated amongst Leone's Westerns.
Ox-Bow Incident is next on my watchlist after Dances with Wolves, and Johnny Guitar and Red River aren't far behind.
Thanks for giving me suggestions on how to improve in my taste
Settle down. I didn't find the story that interesting nor the character ( though Paul Newman gives a strong performance ). The story is questionable to the point does it become believable? His character got a too cool for school attitude which i didn't buy in his situation in a rural prison. Though I can't ignore its full of classic signature moments, remembered for good reasons.
Pour a shot out for all the Letterboxd departed.
See you, space cowboys...
Why did this movie go so g*ddamn full retard
>Watching House M.D.
>Exec. prod. Bryan Singer
>Show features uncanny amount of underaged people with rectal bleeding
This is getting fucking disturbing m8s
Follow the Papa, and he'll follow back
>I'm actually following this moron
>he has the audacity not to follow back
yeah man that was me. maybe it was some fluke or something, I got mine from either KAT or PB. A friend watched it pretty soon after so I guess he did the same thing - just give those sites a try again? Just checked PB and it said it's got 2 seeders going.
I'm not the one who posted it, we are not on Reddit friend this is an anonymous imageboard
regardless on rym the volume of decent users to shit users isn't as weighted toward insufferably pleb as Letterboxd is, just look at the profiles posted here now or look at the users with the most popular reviews
I like RYM because I'm not stuffed with what, 6 reviews per page of which the first page is 3 most upvoted reviews from ELi Hayes caps lock cruising..
RYM has lots of faults like film site is nearly hidden and this results to small userbase for it (and it's music site first anyway) so there's no big film community and those two are my only annoyances with it.
I check out about 4-5 reviewers on Letterboxd few times a week and I check nobody in RYM, just log and write reviews of my own.
The film forums are decent to good in RYM and Sharifi replies with 24 to 36 hours if you have good feedback idea and is active developer, unlike lbXD staff.
If you are honest to yourself then they're good :)
I love No Country for Old Men myself, film is slightly better than novel I feel. It's my favorite too and I don't like other Coen movies.
You should, Drive is direct throwback to 70s New Hollywood.
no worries man. check out the first two Godfathers, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon, Easy Rider, Barry Lyndon, maybe Five Easy Pieces. When you're up for a real different movie check out In the Realm of the Senses and Persona
I like those films, but I probably wouldn't have them as my favourite
Too many tasteless plebs in this thread.
I see The New World in your favorites. I've been working my way through Malick's filmography for the first time in order to see Knight of Cups. Badlands and Days of Heaven were good, but I could honestly take or leave.
But, The Thin Red Line was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Now I find myself with The New World up next, but I'm having trouble convincing myself to watch it. Maybe it's the runtime or the setting, I don't know. What can you tell me about it? Maybe get me hyped enough to watch it
Popular movies are fine to like; they're popular for a reason. But think of your favorites list as a sentence. For example, using popular movies would be like saying "The dog was there." As you develop your cinematic vocabulary, you can refine that statement to be more personal. "The dog was there" turns into "The English Bulldog was there." Eventually, you'll have a filmic phrase all your own such as "The English Bulldog lounged inside the Gothic cathedral." A long was from "The dog was there," and much more interesting to someone else. The kind of phrase that would want to make them learn more about you and why that phrase is special to you.
Like verbal vocabulary, we're always picking up new pieces and definitions of filmic vocabulary, so don't worry about where you are right now, just keep learning more 'words.' Eventually the search for words becomes more important than using the words themselves, and having an interesting personal phrase becomes an added bonus to those you surround yourself with.
Don't worry, I'm fairly new to movies as well. Not bad choices at all, just very "entry level" for lack of a better term. If you lurk around here long enough in addition to doing some research on your own, you could get a real nice list going of movies to watch and expand your taste. I've got a list of more than I know what to do with
it's ignorant because it assumes his favorites can't say a specific thing¨
jong bong, refn, coens and that retarded kid doing movies of teenager drama are all auteurs and say more than 'dog was in a house'
in that case it is
'a bipolar dog was going through its sad phase but it ended up to a happy, promising note'
so? many people are bipolar and going through pathetic self-pity phase hoping for happy end.
doesn't make him less of a person than someone else.
if he is changing it because of perceived peer pressure then he is being pretentious
>I'm fairly new to movies as well.
How old are you? I'm curious. I mean, it's so weird to be new to movies and wonder what the classics are and such. It's such attained knowledge to me by now, it's weird to think of a time in which I didn't know about these things...

>has more one half a star than any other rating
I'm 19, I'd say I have a pretty good idea of what are considered classics, as well as a good start into the lesser known stuff. Now I just need to start actually delving in and watching them
honestly, what's the point of rating movies? I use rym only to review stuff, read reviews, catalog or get recs. you guys can't see how pointless it is trying to quantify the quality of works of art?
>yelling at someone for not being a pleb
Personally, I use it mainly for the log. It's a convinient way to keep track of everything I've watched. I'm not following or being followed by anyone, so my rankings are for myself only. I understand that not all "4 star" movies are the same caliber, but it helps me compare everything I've watched. I can also create lists to consolidate things I want to watch, or need it watch again.
no need to sperg out, i never claimed my point was revolutionary, it's just a question
"subjectively quantified" is a nice euphemism for "arbitrarily assigning ratings to one of the most inscrutable human experiences"
>tfw /tv/ tricked me into watching Bone Tomahawk
>Says the person
How's is it related to Bone Tomahawk?
It's also just for me btw, I check my bio everytime I'm about to rate a film, movie or flick, it allows me to make the best choice.
That would be pic related famalam.
Snowpiercer is okay, Her is reddit and Drive is autistic.
>accidentally put it on the Goyimcratic Debate
>Bernardstein Sandersgold speaks exactly like a Rabbi you see in movies
>talks about stealing money from people who earned it
>not having an Elaine May film in your top 5 http://letterboxd.com/aliliciouz/
>Why is Inarritu allowed to rip off Terry Malick but Ryan Gosling isn't?
Because The Revenant did a decent job of it and Lost River was terrible.
The catch is that everything else Inarritu has made has been facile Oscarbait (especially Birdman) and most everything else Gosling has been involved with was decent. Neither of them can really direct but at least Gosling's meme acting is entertaining.
But the Revenant was shit too
>bird flies out of bullet wound
>muh evil whitey
>le noble savages sparing his life even though they have been hunting him for the past month
Every movie with Leo now is oscarbait regardless of who directs it.
Did you not pay attention? I know films longer thank 80 minutes and with minimal dialogue are difficult for your autism but you could have at least read about it on wikipedia before you made yourself look stupid. Tripcode and all.
>They Shoot Horses
How can you watch it more than once?
Not because it's bad, it's just so emotionally tiring.
>muh evil whitey
This was not nearly as bad in The Revenant as it was in Hateful Eight, to which multiple Redditors in these threads have given ridiculously positive scores. But I'd rather have you hate The Revenant because of perceived anti-whiteness than give 4.5 stars to Tarantula's Black Lives Matter spaghetti western.
>Watching Joy, it’s hard to believe that the same director behind films as good as Silver Linings Playbook
>Strangers on a Train
It's literally Hitchcock's best along with Vertigo.
>Rear Window is his best
Rebecca and The 39 Steps are also better.
No, I'm >>65015299
All the collages that I made have as filename: the title + (year) - collage.jpg
The 39 Steps is comfy and Rebecca is a masterpiece.
