What's the closest videogame version of this?
No Assassin's Creed III, by the way, that game sucks shit.
Does Kevin Smith dislike Innaritu's work too? Smith strikes me as a cool guy, not always on point but pretty down to earth and fairly sharp. I think that Clerks 2 is one of the great sequels in movies.
If I didn't know better I'd figure you're joking.
Please, for the sake of all that is refined and beautiful stop spending money on anything other than your own survival. People like you make people like Innaritu, Abrams and Jennifer Lawrence rich and influential and as a result drag down humanity as a whole.
The project of such game was cancelled two years ago.
The closest you can get is a mod for Mount & Blade, taking place during Seven years' war.
Or American Conquest with fan-made maps
>Giving fuck who directed a decent movie with pretty good acting
>Giving fuck at all about director or cast
>Not the actual quality of the film
It's like you are special kind of retarded.
I liked the movie besides the 2deep4me scenes where he's tripping out, but other than that every encounter he had was entertaining and the fight scene had me flinching
Which is semi-dead by now "Oregon Trial meet Expeditions: Conquistador" type of deal. Real shame it's mostly abandoned by authors, but hey, they were actually making the game, not like the Three Million Dollar Man.
>2deep4me scenes where he's tripping ou
If you were watching them closely, half of them were foreshadowing what will happen later in the film. Like the
dead woman in tons of blood drowned in the creek, which is how Fitzgerald finally dies
I'm not sure if you're serious or not. Why wouldn't i care who the director is? Innaritu's got a reputation and a relatively distinct style for making movies which I dislike and don't want to see influencing other directors like it probably will.
You see, because the only person giving fuck was you.
Most people went to see this because of DiCaprio. Alternatively - Hardy. Rest - because it's an entertaining flick with tons of gore in it. NOBODY gave a fuck about director.
Aside of you, of course.
Besides, if this was /tg/, the "Stop having fun, guys" image would be the best way to sum up your stupidity.
Felt like a bunch of flashy gimmicks with no driving vision behind them. Why the fuck does the camera never stop bobbing and weaving? Why did Innaritu choose this story to make of all the ones in existence, was it because it would let Dicaprio meme the fuck out and go full method-retard for the sake of it? On a base level what's the movie about? Revenge? Survival? Family? Human savagery? Winning Academy Awards and acclaim from plebs who don't know better?
>A dude makes 5 films over 15 years
>Most of them are absolutely forgettable bullshit he just directed and didn't write
>HURR HE IS RUINING CINEMA DURR
>LOOK AT ME!
>PAY ME SOME ATTENTION, DAMN IT!
So did the woman - she was scalped and thrown into the river.I would say "go rewatch it", but you aren't probably into piracy and the film isn't THAT good to pay for tickets twice.
>seeing a movie for Leonardo Dicaprio
>thinking Revenant has "tons of gore"
>using the argument "entertaining flick"
If you're serious then it's impressive that you're capable of forming almost gramatically correct sentences.
It's not important what the film contains. It's important how it's marketed. And it's marketed as revange flick with DiCaprio in it.
And if this film is not gory by the standards of non-gore horrors, then you dear sir, are fucking pretentious idiot looking for attention by nit-picking.
Either post related vidya, or finally get your ass back to /tv/. Nobody gives a fuck about your bunch of baits and opinions, but thanks to you, this thread is now off the rails and will probably get pruned instead of providing interesting vidya in tone of Oregon Trail
You know, this thread is so awful I'm considering going back. Also:
Mad Max > powergap > Mad Max 3: first half > Mad Max 2 > Mad Max: Exploding Circus Extravaganza on Wheels > Mad Max 3: Second Half
I bet you fucking gigaplebs think that John Wick and Dredd were all time great action movies too.
This game made Early Access looking good and worthy endeavour
It's marketed as some kind of masterpiece if you ask me. I'm seeing Innaritu being sold as some kind of auter making classics, not fun pulpy revenge crap.
And as for gorey, have you never seen a Verhoeven movie?
Movie was way too fucking long. To me it suffers from the same shit akame ga kill suffered from, that they just keep doing the same shit over and over. After a while, everyone he meets dying starts to lose its impact. Him having to do some stupid wilderness shit to survive starts to lose its impact. The opening scene was great though.
>It's marketed as some kind of masterpiece if you ask me
Only that it's not. It's marketed exactly as pulpy revange crap with rarely used type of frontier setting (when Kentucky was wilderness) and popular actors in it. Want to see how make a marketing for pulpy "power of love" story as second coming of Christ? Recall the marketing of Interstellar.
By modern standards, Verhoeven, the GOOD Verhoeven from late 80s, early 90s, would be rated 21+ and nobody would be able to watch his films.
To me they felt the same. They both felt like adolescent power fantasies rather than straight up entertainment, which is what action should aim for. Both have edgy as fuck premises, god-mode protags killing straight-up bad guys, shallow attempts at stylish moments like wacky subs in Wick or Slo-Mo in Dredd, and a general feeling of drudgy angst and grit dragging the whole movie down.
Paul Verhoeven and Yuen Woo-Ping have it down, action needs to be acrobatic, funny and generally aiming to please in simple ways. What good does a serious tone do for an action movie?
Hardware is a movie that I think did much greater justice to 2000AD than Dredd did and it feels more like an episode of Red Dwarf than John Wick in the future, an that's how it should be.
>seriously defends SW prequels an goes as far as to say that Lucas knows better and all who dislike his genius work are pathetic fanboys
Fuck Smith, although his earlier movies were great for the most part
>adolescent power fantasies
>god-mode protags killing straight-up bad guys
Bueno - what made me enjoy Wick was the amount of over-the-top violence, felt like Psycho or Rambo all over again.
There is literally ONE saving grace of John Wick that you are constantly ommitting.
The film comes with single, short exposition in the middle of it, simply put there to tell for who Wick was working in his old days. Everything else is a master case of "show, don't tell".
But yeah, other than that, it was pretentious action flick with fucking Neo in it, which by itself made somewhat bearable film barely watchable.
He's right about the prequels though. They're technically impressive, thematically consistent with what already existed, new stuff but familiar and each stands as a solo movie while also tying nicely into the greater saga.
Meanwhile if you make a Star Wars movie according the "fans'" desires you get Meme Wars 7: The Reddit Awakens Into Darkness, which is just a generic Hollywood by the books blockbuster with a Star Wars coat of paint.
>Meanwhile if you make a Star Wars movie according the "fans'" desires you get Meme Wars 7: The Reddit Awakens Into Darkness, which is just a generic Hollywood by the books blockbuster with a Star Wars coat of paint.
Daily reminder that everything that made the Expanded Universe NEVER HAPPEND.
Thought you'd never ask:
Beyond the Black Rainbow
Revenge of the Nerds
Pain & Gain
Flesh + Blood
Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise
Phantom Of the Paradise
The Red Spectacles
Wake In Fright
To name a few.
And you recomend them as specific type of film, or this is some kind of "bestest movies my sorry ass ever saw"?
Because while I can see the pattern, this is an important distinction here
Since the /tv/ spergs are busy derailing this thread, let's make a list of all vidya that were tied with the premise:
The Long Dark, which is the closest thing to the premise
Other than that:
First level of Gun
Haven & Hearth
Mount & Blade mod for French and Indian war
Meriwether (still in beta)
Red Dead Redemption climax
And let the spergs sperg more
I really liked the first two thirds of the movie. Seemed like a mix of a bunch of movies I really liked, like Dances With Wolves, Apocalypto, True Grit, a bit of There Will Be Blood, etc. I didn't like some of the symbolism that went nowhere, and later on the ambiguous morality drifted more and more into a black-and-white'ish good and evil (the frenchies hanging that one indian while raping the chick; Tom Hardy's melodramatic last words while during the most part of the movie he didn't came across as a villain but rather a dick who did what he deemed best for survival), but overall my favourite film of the year.
Can someone recomment me other films like this? (Or the films I mentioned up there?) I don't feel like going to /tv/.
What's the closest videogame version of this?
The idea is to annoy people by throwing together a miscellaneous pile that samples a bit of everything I'm into with no real consistent theme other than that I think they're all worth owning on dvd or something.
What should action and comedy aim for? Are you one of those guys who says that a movie is good for "cinematography" but doesn't actually go further and thinks that "good/bad cinematography" is real praise/critique? Might seem like a weirdly specific thing to ask but I'm getting that vibe here.
>generic man vs nature action movie trying too hard to be le epic serious awards prestige movie
Inarritu is a fucking hack this shit is no different from something like The Grey
>a miscellaneous pile that samples a bit of everything
>Almost exclusively action and gore, with few random bits in it
It's like that list I've once made and realised somewhere around 600th movie they are almost all action flicks, dark comedies and horror comedies, with few random bits in it.
>What is Oscar bait
>What is Oscar season
How new to film industry are you?
I'm gonna BET DiCaprio will finally get his Oscar for this massive bait, while the cinematography won't be even nominated
What's the closest video game version of this?
Because as much as I love movies and discussing them i can't stay on /tv/ for too long. It's absolutely awful. It's forced meme central with probably the worst median taste in the subject matter across all boards.
That's a crude assessment.
I thought Oscar bait was shit that pandered to the social justice bandwagon? Like 10 Years a Slave for example. That movie was always going to win best picture regardless of how good of a film it was.
>get laughed off /tv/
>go to /v/ and use it as a soapbox for your plebby opinions that you hoped would appear intelligent and unique to the pleb gamers and teens and attract the attention you so desperately desire
But the film combines what the Academy likes:
overcoming huge obstacles
revange that ends up with empty feeling
And given how fucking dry the year was, this is a really strong candidate. Ugly friend principle, my man. Unless ofc there will be some kind of Silver Linings Playbook flick or The King's Speeches
>I'm part of the problem
>Instead of containing myself, I spread the problem over other boards
well that was unexpected. and horrifying. good one anon
>not the embodiment of plebs and teens
lmao there are still millennials who deny that video games are the intelligent medium of the future... just wow
>Cuckhold: The Movie
still a great film though
How can somebody get laughed off of anywhere where we're all anonymous?
Dredd and John Wick were both technically competent, especially when compared to big mainstream action movies, but that's about all they have going for them.
>but that's about all they have going for them.
That's all I had to be
I went into the movie expecting neo to shoot lots of bad guys in various ways with little to no plot behind it, and the movie delivered. The only things that bothered me were the two glaring instances of stupidity, Wick leaving the assassin chick alive and the russian mob leader not just shooting Wick in the face when he had him captured
>Cult of director
>There are people who still believe in this
Mate, if your actors can't act, nothing will save that. If your cinematographer is an ass, you are done before even starting. If your editor is shit, you might end up with great movie that a literal hack set together in the wrong way. And if your screenplay is shit, not even combination of good acting, director's leadership and superb cinematography are going to save that.
All director does is checking if everyone is doing their job. That's all. And film like no other media is a teamwork with multiple elements that must ALL be in perfect way to work as a whole.
Oscar bait is a certain aesthetic that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with social justice, and it long predates the current bandwagon. A Beautiful Mind is like the quintessential Oscar bait
>doing anything useful ever
They're 99% of the problem if you ask me. The best thing for /tv/ would be for our new Nanking-Denying overlord to purge them all and replace them with people who will try to get people to actually discuss movies.
If directors are just glorifies supervisors how do you explain any kind of consistency across filmographies? Is it all due to using the same crew?
I'm sure many directors are like that but a lot of directors like to control as much as they can and have a hand in everything and use their crew like tools to achieve their vision.
Vision is the big thing, the cinematographer and lighting guy don't show up on set and do whatever the fuck they want, they give the director what they want.
>movies come out that are both artistically sound and are not dry as fuck, have action and greatly told epic stories
>Last of the mohicans, braveheart, gladiator, etc.
>now action and story have completely split, all the good Oscar worthy movies are dry as fuck art pieces and all moviea with any kind of action in them are retarded as fuck CGI-ridden quipfests like the MCU films
What the hell happened?
>live in the potentially greatest time for art and culture in human history with 90% of film, literature, etc, readily and freely available
>still pay to consume what's brand new despite recognizing its lack of value
Anon, have you ever considered not going to the movies anymore?
Dunno I always found it lackluster, but don't really know why. Haven't seen it in a while. Same applies to X-Men. I actually liked X-Men III the most.
Then you don't want enough.
Go and find me Aischylos' "Niobe", please.
they aren't in vogue right now maybe because people got burnt out after the early 2000s. Gladiator, Lord of the Rings, Troy, King Arthur, Alexander, there was a whole string of them. or maybe 300 killed them by making the genre too comic booky
Look up any video of someone getting hurt, in an accident, brutalized, etc, in China. No one ever helps. It's because they have no semblance of a good samaritan law over there and if you save someone's life in a situation like that you're likely to get the shit sued out of you.
>that kid getting run over multiple times
It's also to do with their social development.
Emotional development in China differs to western caucasians, one cause is the huge population, which impacts emotional and social actions.
>that one with the crazy guy throwing an 8 year old onto the pavement and stomping his head in, while people just walk by and watch from cafe windows
>doesn't know the family ran an impromptu funeral without the malls permission
>the mall picked up the body and took it out of the building while hundreds of people through a shitfit
It's nowhere near as bad as many anons make it out to be, but it was definitely disappointing compared to the ezio trilogy. Still, the atmosphere was comfy and despite being a angry boring plank of a character, controlling Connor made you feel like a badass. I still say he's the most OP protagonist of the series. He would wipe the floor with any of the others in a straight fight.
