I didn't see a thread for gorgeous animation! let me get us started
this rain tho
also this whole movie looks photo realistic except the characters
Yes, it also has a seriously underrated OST
>walking without touching the floor
If you have a slow connection on the interwebz you don't have to deal with a slow torrent, and thanks to the nature of the compression a stream will be lighter on your network use, than the equivalent torrent.
Also, where the fuck did anyone bring up convenience?
It can be, but there's really nothing wrong with it in principle. It just needs to be executed by a competent director.
agreed that it needs to be executed by a competent director
so many action movies do it because i guess it's been in fashion, or because directors think it puts the viewer right into the action, see the fist fight in the bourne identity and saving private ryan for good examples
almost every use of this technique, and also shaky hand camera action shots just fucking suck
Ah, shaky cam!
I was kinda hyped for a second to mention how well I thought Dion Beebe handled shaky cam in Edge of Tomorrow as a response or reaction to the action in the scene, rather than a stimulus to.
I don't think the director himself (actually the guy that did Bourne Identity) is all that great, but Beebe is a top notch DoP and one of the best in the business when it comes to making digital film "work"
Check this clip out from EoT:
It has some decent spin cam too, and it's somewhat on topic.
yah, he actually gets what it's for, and why shaky cam can be good, right when we go into cage's space, when things are at their most chaotic and disorienting, that's where the shaky hand cam is good
people seem to just chuck it in, and i guess they figure that it "makes the scene authentic" or some other horseshit. what it makes the scene is unintelligible nine times out of ten. what kind of lazy filmmaking is that anyway, you have to at least frame your shaky hand cam shots with some sort of context god fucking dammit.
shit beebe is good btw, and you can actually see a personal style emerging in the movies he works on, and i love edge of tomorrow, it was actually fun and different for a change, one of my favourite action movies of recent years. doug liman on the other hand, you are probably right about, his films are plots and scenes, not all going in a coherent direction. i think what eot is really about is cage's rebirth, but we dont even get much of that through any part of the film. sure he starts out reasonably awful, and does change, he becomes proficient in combat, and right at the end he pulls his finger out character-wise, but what i really wanted was for him to actually try and fail to be better.
is this just the state of hollywood? is this what modern films are? will this ever change? i dont know
>you have to at least frame
YES. This a thousand times. The viewer needs a reference point to be most effectively "fooled", if the reference point constantly breaks, the illusion falls apart.
>is this just the state of hollywood?
>is this what modern films are
On the whole, but
>will this ever change?
There are always talented people making great things independent of the general market trends. Possibly fewer and farther between than we'd like, but eh, them's the brakes.
I'm really glad someone else is familiar with Beebe by name, though. I'm really interested to see if he manages to keep Bay's tendency to go apeshit with the shaky cam at...bay in the Benghazi movie, although I know it's gonna be shit in pretty much all regards.
oh come on now, its going to be america, fuck yeah: the movie, you have to have michael bay direct that!
yeah nah, it's going to suck in all likelihood, but im sure it's going to be a visual spectacle at the very least... i wont be going to see it at the movies most likely
it's true that we get the occasional snowpiercer, or district 9, i just wish that the main focus wasnt making a buck, but making good films instead
>love Sci-Fi and mechashit
>never get triggered by this shit because it's not real and I'm not so autistic as to be unable to accept contrivances in works of fiction
So I'm just supposed to be okay with conservation of mass and/or momentum not being obeyed in the world of Steamboy?
I haven't watched Steamboy before. Is there magic in it? Because the only way I'm going to accept that bullshit is if there's magic. Is there?
So is this all going to be about anime or don't people have anything western?
I'ma call bullshit on that. If it weren't one punch man - literally the exact same presentation, but not as popular as it currently is - you'd be sucking its metaphorical dick.
The entire Boros fight is more visually complex than half the stuff I'm seeing here, as are the Subterraneans fight and the Deep Sea King (FUCK YEAH SEAKING) fight. They're just all stylized.
fucking hell, the two gundam webms that we have here are amazing
i thought the whole reason why nips animated giant robots was because they were simple to animate and so could be done cheaply
>i thought the whole reason why nips animated giant robots was because they were simple to animate and so could be done cheaply
Jesus Christ, I wish people like you would actually watch some well made mechashit instead of assuming everything is on par with Valvrave or Aquarion
Basically all golden era disney films are rotoscoped as well, it's just that Disney had skilled animators with unlimited money budget essentially while rotoscoping in anime is done quickly at low quality and feels weightless.
The steam is venting off from turbines powering conventional compressors/nozzles for thrust. Sketchy fancannon at best, but slightly better than using it for pure thrust as you'd conserve more water.
Agreed. It's not bad at all, and it's a show that (I'm sure) has earned a lot of the praise it gets, but this thread is for the best of the best compositions of animation, and OPM doesn't quite stand out the way that others in this thread do.
8th MS team is the most realistic gundam(if you can call gundam realistic) as it treats the robots as what they are: walking tanks.
also the lack of angsty whiny teenagers with retarded superpowers already makes it better than 99% of the other gundams
He literally only said "observe" don't get so assblasted that your sacred animu is dubbed. I honestly cannot fucking stand the sound of the nip language, it's so shrill and obnoxious, even on their edgy, deep voiced characters. I'm not even a native English speaker but would rather sit through a shitty dub than Japanese. No trolling here, that is just my shit opinion.
How come animated Disney movies (Lion King, Tarzan etc) are always praised for having wonderful animation, when almost every webm in this thread has better animation than any Disney movie?
Can someone provide an example of great Disney animation?
I understand that, and I respect Disney for that.
BUT the new age of Disney animation film like Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan, Hunchback, Hercules, Lion King, Tarzan and so on are all praised as amazing animations from an animation standpoint. But at the same time japan put out stuff like Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Mononoke Hime and so much more, in my eyes mbetter animations.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Disney animations, but I feel that they really are overrated by the machine that is the Disney corporation.
shit the fuck up you faggot hipster
>doesn't know about Blood - The Last Vampire
There's only one dubbing, and since it takes place on an American military base in Japan, they switch between Japanese and English regularly.
>If you have a slow connection on the interwebz you don't have to deal with a slow torrent, and thanks to the nature of the compression a stream will be lighter on your network use, than the equivalent torrent.
It's not the torrent that's slow it's your bad internet. I'd rather wait for the full quality of something that I want to impress me than watch some bitrate starved crap quality stream.
Anime is flashier and focused more on action while Disney animation has more frames and is really well studied from life.
Now don't go around cherry picking examples to defend your Korean cartoons cause I too enjoy both and I'm just simply suggesting one of the possible reasons (mostly applies to tv anime tho).
>What show is this? Is there anything good that is on nexflix/hulu and dubbed to English?
Not my preference at all, but a good buddy prefers dubs so I'll be kind
Hulu just recently got a whole bunch of Dubbed stuff, some of it pretty good,like Redline
can't tell if this ms paint bullshitter is being legit or not
I'm really glad somebody else took the time to appreciate this moment. If Dragon Ball spent more time in this slow animation style where you could actually appreciate each of the individual movements, it may not be as much of a joke as it is today. It's not incredible animation, but it's certainly a lot more interesting than how they usually designed fighting scenes.
The close quarters combat is always animated so well in Ghost in the Shell.
I know this probably has nothing to do with this particular animation but I remember watching an animated film when I was a kid that had very similiar animation like this...except it was about 2 fish that live the sea and then get seperated by water polution and oil and stuff and want to find eachother again...
Very dark and depressive animation and I remember movie beeing really sad...anyone can help me out?
Sometimes dubs can sound better to local audiences. For instance, in DBZ, the voices of Goku and his male family sound gay af for westerners because its voice by females and their performances try to capture the childish side of goku more than the english dub.
it sounds like you really are a japanophile, if you cant see the artistic merrit in any of the things you listed then you really dont know your animation well. The life studies that go into something like little mermaid, aladdin, beauty and the beast or tarzan is phenomenal. those movies are more accurate to perceptions of movement than nearly any japanese anime which falls more in line with crisp movement than fluid
nah fuck off, anime does action and life studies just as well as disney. even then they're better in terms of depicting fantasy and sci-fi elements as realistic as possible, the fucking ghost in the shell webm depicting the way Motoko's back muscles contracting are more advanced than anything Disney animators have ever attempted.
Yeah cause I don't know many disney movies that had to properly depict someones back muscles ripping out of their own body. Pretty sure if they wanted to they could animate that pretty damned well.
good taste. does anyone have the optimus vs megatron fight or rodimus vs galvatron?
