Fight club man.
Throwing in a FC edit i mad a few weeks ago.
If you're referring to Clockwork I read it ithout realizing there was a glossary. Suprisingly my interpretation as pretty ball on accurate.
If you are referring to the Shining, it is very different but also not.
Always read the book 1st
I did the same thing anon. Also, speaking of king, it wasn't until I read "IT" that I understand why they will never be able to make a movie that even comes close to the novel.
The Turtle Lives.
Yeah, for example, wendy torrance should be a really beautiful blonde woman, and kubrick...
This is why I like both, they are like two differents stories, with a similar beginning, but with two completely different endings
I mean, I respect the hell out of Kubrick, his attention to detail and symmetry is legend. The original shining stands alone if only because so many of us grew up with it, but you're absolutely right. The newer one had moments that were in the book that weren't in the original film, Wig the animal shaped hedges coming alive and what not. Even king has said that jack nicholson was a bad choice because it's hard to portray a person slowly losing his mind if you think he's insane to begin with. And Nicholson seems insane from the very beginning.
The assassiantion of jesse james by the coward robert ford
The book is immensely great too.
good movie... better than most of the dumb shit in this thread
some of my favorite
Starship Troopers (if it is your type of humor this movie is amazing)
Trolls 2 and The Room are two of the funniest low budget movies ever
Man on Fire and Gladiator for revenge movies
The Departed, 10 cloverfield lane, it follows, the original jurassic park come to mind as really good movies as well
Most "100 best movies" lists or whatever are filled with shit
5/10 as only half the movie is good.
As soon as Pyle offs himself, you can promptly shut it off and not miss anything.
Whitnail & I
Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai
my three all time favorites
It is, and its underrated as fuck.
Starship troopers is hilarious.
Never seen trolls 2 or the room
Didn't like man on fire, gladiator was good though. The departed, 10 cloverfield lane and its blood relative Cloverfield are great films, and It Follows is probably my favorite modern horror film to date, beaten only by The Witch, which is a goddamn masterpiece.
Looking at this one top 100 ranking website now here are a few that jump out..
The first Godfather was okay but not a top 100 and the others were just shit
I will never understand why anyone likes Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski
The Matrix was mediocre / shit / shit
Inception was for idiots and full of fake science/plot holes for days
Jaws was shit
Rocky was cringey
Kill Bill was horrible
And then you have a ton of picks on the top 100 like Citizen Kane, To Kill A Mockingbird, V for Vendetta that I would rather smash my dick with a hammer than have to sit through again
Couldn't sit through Amelie.
Love child of George Lucas,David Bowie and Jim Henson
>Couldn't sit through Amelie.
Typical 'Murican, bored to tears with foreign films.
Go back to your Hollywood in-your-face movies. LOUD soundtracks. Fast editing and lots of EXPLOSIONS! And guns guns guns! Hooray!
Rob Ager has done a good analysis showing that there is a definite theme of Native American genocide in the film. Wendy represented a Native American, and of course Jack, the aggressive white male. ...Yep, Kubrick was actually a bleeding heart liberal. (In reality, most Native Americans were killed simply by disease.) (Kubrick also wanted to do a Holocaust movie... lol)
The Shining is pretty simple. Kubrick wanted to do a horror film. He wanted Wendy to be extremely frail and vulnerable, Jack to be menacing, and Danny to be cute. Then he threw in the NA theme, and also the Apollo missions. (I don't think he was involved with the faking of them, but it was definitely on his mind.) And of course, the obligatory gay scene when you least expect it ^_^
>fails to notice I posted a french film
>here's film deux then
Faggot I'm English. Amelie is boring pretentious crap.
The obligatory gay scene you're referring to was a part of the book.
If I remember, it's been about 10 years since I read it, there were two men who met at the hotel and one of them wrote the other one saying he would only be with him if he showed up in a bear costume. And so he did. That short shot was just a shoutout to the novel.
I recently watched this film. It was shit. It was slow, boring, and unfunny. It failed to strike on any of the notes it wanted to, and ended up only serving a boorish reminder of an olden time in French cinema.
I think this is the best action movie ever made.
I'm not an expert in the genre, though, so fuck my opinion.
I like the original best.
Road Warrior dropped the ball with the sudden Fallout esque motifs.
>Fallout esque motifs.
who wants to tell him?
Never seen that one either. I just always hated when I would be describing a film to someone and they say "does it start out slow? Cause I don't like slow movies"
It's a guarantee that they don't appreciate or even understand quality films.
Fritz Lang's Siegfried
>better than Metropolis
No, it's a great descriptor of the film. Within the time of the film the events happen in a sluggish manor, few things get resolved, and what few plot points exist plod along.
Slow is a fine descriptor of a movie if it is accurate. It's not always a bad thing, but for a comedy movie that at times wants to be slapstick it indeed is a damning thing to say.
This isn't an overall assessment of all movies "Oh, I don't like SLOW movies" and to assume so only shows your own condescension.
I hate Amelie that means I'm murican and uncultured. Fuck he annoyed me with that one.
Best Film Noir ever made, Inherent Vice close second
Favorite movie as a child and the boy ghost scared the shit out of me.
I wanna make a god-tier movie someday. Wish me luck!!
I can't take to that prat. Even in that movie, the only memorable bit is him being caught having a wank
Think the pasta on b where you're jerkin off with headphones on and a bacon butty appears. Yep, someone put that in a film ffs
>Muppets in Space
Star Wars is the most over rated IP of all time by a wide margin.
That was originally a Ricky gervais joke as well, just modified.
The joke was a story that a childhood friend had told him about wanking with headphones on and when he finished he noticed his mum had been in and left him tea and biscuits.>>720023528
I love Danny Dyer.
"The scene here was shot on a Toronto sound stage, and the figure that you're seeing is Ted Danson. More to the point, it's a cardboard cutout of Danson that was made for the movie as a prop. The storyline concerning that prop never made the final cut of the film itself, but the cutout did."
>second time I see this cover ever, is this a poppin fresh meme or an actual good watch?
I thought it was great! It's in French, though. Some people don't like subtitles very much, but if you're OK with them give it a go.
Sorry. I'll go watch amelie to rectify :^(
