General film discussion thread. Good/bad films, favourite actors/directors and whatnot.

Anyone else feel MASSIVELY let down by the end of No Country For Old Men? I think it's the most unsatisfying end to a film I've ever seen. Which is a damn shame because the rest of it was awesome.


I think there may have been a thread specifically for films a while ago but I thought I might as well start a new one. With a cool name.


EDIT: PUT SPOILER WARNINGS AT THE HEAD OF YOUR POST IF YOU'RE GOING TO TALK IN DETAIL ABOUT A FILM'S END. IF POSSIBLE, AVOID POSTING SPOILERS AT ALL.

Sounds like someone wanted to see more gooks and spooks railed down by Clint & Toad: Motherfraggin' P.I.M.P.s at Large, rather than a heartwarming story about acceptance.


Of course I expected everyone to be gunned down like a chinese railroadtracklayer, IT'S A CLINT EASTWOOD MOVIE!

I thought 'What Just Happened?' was a tad disappointing.

Funniest thing in that film was the first phonecall between John Malkovich's and Brad Pitt's characters.

also it freaked me out when george clooney shot that guy.

Boondock Saints = best movie ever!

The ending of No country for old men sucked! Ruined the whole movie for me.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Bolt is a totally bitchin' film.

Meh, I wasn't keen on the ending to No Country... but it's not like it ruined the movie for me or anything.
#27
No Country for Old Men was excellent. People think in order to be good cinema, your main character has to nail at least 4 bitches throughout the course of the movie and then kill the bad guy in huge explosion. That's pretty shallow and lame, in my opinion.

What's wrong with a good old tragedy? Theater started with tragedies.
And I mean that in the best possible way.

Singin' In The Rain is up there, and I never usually like musicals. It's just too funny to not enjoy.

Dead Mans Shoes is an amazing film. Shame it got spoiled for me in Media Studies before I actually got to see it...


My personal favourite movie is Memento.

That film isn't so bitchin'.
It's like the director psychically channelled a retard when writing that movie.

My suggestion is 'Låt den rätte komma in' or 'Let the Right One In' as it's known to those not Swedishly inclined.

Edit: Clever me. Just read the spoilers for Burn after Reading...

Well hasn't your high school education just turned you into the most pretentious of film watchers.

In other news: I though most of No Country For Old Men was a boring, pointless sack of crap.

Just finished watching The Machinist. I think what Bale did might give his performance more weight, but it remains some ****ing awesome acting.

You mean... the 1921 "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari"?

But Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1920) is the best.

on Barry Lyndon, featuring the "Oh God! Oh Man!" guy, was good too.

There's too many bad movies to name them...
