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.
My God, it's full of stars!

Just don't see it and form opinions about it, like me!

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.

See, that's part of the "cinema experience" to me. Part of what's cool about seeing a movie is there's a billion people there. And it's this joint experience.

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.

During my degree there were many opportunities to mingle with film folk, the Uni is lucky to be closely involved with the Cornish Film Festival, I met a film distributor guy based in London who was offering internships but at the time I had to much work to do.

A degree can get you somewhere, its just how you use it e.i I now have the qualification to go into masters programs that offer much more opportunities (the TV production course at my Uni has a 100% employment record), but what my degree has done for me is actually shown me what films I truly like, learnt how to write a script and how to use creative camera and editing work so I can now do my own thing. I'm planning a few projects atm, it'll take a few years but I'll get there

This is my final attempt to replicate the old thread post for post.

Depends on the movie. Anchorman was fun with other people. But serious movies I wanna see in my own solitude. I would never call up my friends and say "HEY GUYS wanna come over and watch Late Spring tonight?"

The theater wasn't empty when I saw it but I was alone and I put myself away from the few people in there. And it was good.

I was underwhelmed when I first saw it. Not my favorite western.

Just got back from the Hobbit. Saw it in IMAX 3D HRF. Very awesome. The visuals were jump-out-of-your-seat good.
