hmm i thought i saw the other day it was getting released the same day as revenant which is first week in january.

edit...there is a copy of it online...oh and there may be one for revenant too...it will take some restraint from me to not watch it before it hits theaters but I think ill wait because its supposed to be visually amazing.

Sir, I only pirate crap movies. I saw this in a legitimate theatre with popcorn and everything.

Saturday night saw it on first release haven't seen it since brilliant film, great cast & dialogue 'I look like a turkey with leukaemia'



As part of the Festival of Sydney Antonio Sanchez is playing live to film at the Opera House very tempted.

Liked this one.

Intense, Villeneuve films like Michael Mann in Heat.

I also liked that the focus shifts among characters.

How can you tell if a movie is crap before seeing it ?

On a forum talking about overpriced clothes and guys are talking about stealing $5-12 movies

I can tell. Commercials, trailers, advertisements. Crap stinks from a distance, you don't have to see it close up to know it's crap.

I'd counter by saying there are plenty of great movies with little to no advertising budget but I know what you're saying
post #12985 of 14471

or if they're not unadvertised, they're horribly mis-marketed. mallrats comes to mind

Oh c'mon, was there any doubt the new Tarantino film would be good? Jesus fuck.

greatest american filmmakers off the top of my head:

 

welles, chaplin, wilder, hitchcock, scorsese, lucas (for sound design alone), coppola, lynch, cronenberg.

 

tarantino.

tarantino.

Cronenberg is Canadian. And I think Hitchcock was a foreigner too.

EDIT - Also, no Ford?

hitchcock spent his early years as a british filmmaker yes. the 39 steps, the secret agent, and the lady vanishes are completely badass btw. but most of his work in the 50s, 60s and 70s was made in hollywood. if you remove hitchcock substitute depalma who's catalog was basically a giant derivation of various hitchcock films but very very good. happy now? btw chaplin was born and raised in london (in abject poverty). would you call him an english filmmaker? lol

 

the other side of that coin is kubrick: an american who was deeply influenced by soviet cinema and spent most of his working life in england (afaik) so i don't really consider him an american filmmaker as much as a european filmmaker who happened to make movies for an american audience

 

i didn't know cronenberg was canadian! - but are they really so different? in any case maybe that one is not off the top of my head, but out of my ass! i just know i really liked the fly and naked lunch

 

sure - you could argue for ford, hell argue pt anderson (i wouldn't) or anybody else you like. it's a threak as they say. 

 

and no doubt tarantino makes a great movie. imo he's a monument of film and i would compare his work to anybody's. i remember seeing a midnight showing of inglorious basterds and leaving completely utterly rocked - i should probably rewatch it lol. i doubt i'll get a chance to see his new one at my local theatres (that's how they spell it) but i am super curious
