I have a lot of hope for Interstellar. I'm hoping that it's finally a beautiful space exploration movie, dealing with legitimate concepts and problems of spacefaring, without trying to make it some space thriller or something of the sort.

Basically, a space movie that treats space in a similar way that, for instance, Prince Avalanche and Kings of Summer treat the natural environments that they are in, while dealing with the human ideals of spacefaring.

Pretty sure it's not going to be like that, but here's to hoping.

Watched Festen. Really really great. Like super good. And who thought a film could be so stylish with those Dogme rules.

Yes it is. Also, I think it's miles away better than Idioterne; I didn't like that one so much... But yeah, Festen is great.

But, on the CGI topic, I've been watching the star wars prequels on Spike (mainly as background noise), but I don't think I'll ever understand why they needed so much CGI in it. Like there's that show on SYFY where they do make up and masks and stuff and there's amazing stuff done. With Lucas' budget, there's no excuse for it.

Basically, I understand some CGI, but I'll never understand characters being CGI. Or why they had to be in front of a CGI waterfall in episode II.

This is why I don't like the how the Hobbit looks. The costumes in LOTR worked much better than CGI

And it's really true of the Star Wars prequels since the CGI wasn't even nearly as good then

I just watched Prince Avalanche because a few people mentioned it in here a lot, and I'm really glad I did. It was excellent, funny, warm, had a lot of heart, excellent performances and a fantastic score.

Agree.

After watching it a second time i'm pretty sure i don't like the HFR. At times i felt like i was watching a soap opera, and then other times it looked like something straight out of a video game.




Edit: I too have high hopes for Interstellar.

^I kinda said this earlier, but between EitS's Prince Avalanche score, Patton's for The Place Beyond the Pines, and Cliff Martinez's work, this year has been awesome for film scores.

Good to know that Netflix fixed the Oldboy problem, now I can finally get around to watching it (thanks Xiaoxi). Though I won't have time to watch anything today or tomorrow or probably this week cause school starts back. But I'm definitely gonna make time to watch Adaptation since I'm seeing Her on friday.

Yeah, Cliff Martinez is the standout composer for me. I think he does it for Solaris too and I really wanna see that.

We don't get Her until Valentine's Day here. Which means there's a very, very real chance I'll be going alone to see a film about a man falling in love with a computer on Valentine's Day.

This is hilarious, not just because of your situation but also just that they're releasing it on Valentines Day.

empty movies theaters suck

EDIT: well I guess for slower stuff it wouldn't be awful, but for comedies and anything action oriented it's weird

I love empty theaters for certain films. The Avengers or 21 Jump Street wouldn't have been nearly as fun if those shows had been empty, but The Raid and The Master were great.
