FWIW I also enjoyed Prisoners but found Sicario much more enjoyable. The pace felt a lot quicker in the latter movie even though the action scenes were supposedly slowed down for more of an impact.

Star wars, interesting.. I would say that if you enjoy the type and quality of movies posted on this thread it may feel underwhelming. Ep7 feels a lot like a marvel film (avengers, iron man) meets a history film

Underwhelming in part because this film revisits and relies a lot on similar themes and subplots from the previous films

My christmas movie of all time. Full of drama and of beauty.

 

Fanny och Alexander - Ingmar Bergman (1982)

^ On my watchlist as well. Might be the one Bergman film I will enjoy as I hear Woody Allen's Hannah and her Sisters was heavily influenced by it.

 

Out of curiosity, do you recommend the long 5 hour version?

Wow, that's awesome.

What sort of stuff?

That's really impressive. Would we know of any of these shows, or were they only for domestic viewing?

Most of the stuff has been showed in Scandinavia and I'm guessing Germany and some other European countries, but I don't believe any have made it across the pond (pm if you wanna get specific show names to check out). One of them put Mads Mikkelsen on the map...

I'm in awe at people who make a success of creative writing. Was lucky enough to go to a talk recently given by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat about the creation of Sherlock and the writing and production process.

I've not seen the 5 hour version, didn't know it existed.

I've seen the tv 4 episode (once) and the 3 hour movie a couple of times; both in cinema and on tv. The movie is better than the episodes, and last night I recognized not one boring scene, just good direction, interesting characters and a touching and dramatical story. Maybe build on Bergman's own childhood, at least many parallels to his life.

 

Allen is a great admirer of Bergman, but I didn't know before today that Hannah and her Sisters is heavily influenced. Never thought of it, but you might be right. The story in Fanny och Alexander is fare more complex and involves more stories and characters. And more drama, not to forget.
