    Ted Lasso

    This show is so much better than it has any right being. Nothing about the concept interested me, an American football coach who gets hired to coach an English 'football' team, but enough people said...

    Yeah, the distributor has some leverage as they have hundreds of films on the site, and many of them got pulled on the same day, so they were able to successfully make a case. A single filmmaker...

    My film got taken down but the distributor raised a stink and Amazon reversed their decision the next day, saying it was an error.

    I'm still editing PRORES HQ off budget USB 3.0 drives, no problem. It can even stream at 4k up to 30p without a hiccup. If you can afford SSD's, then have at it, kind of overkill for me as the bulk...

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    Oh my holy god. This is basically my wet dream of a VR game. You can pilot several Starwars fighters on the rebel or empire side, engage in dogfights and go on missions, online multiplayer, and there...

    It was once stated that 93 percent of all communication is non-verbal. The actual words being said are only seven percent of the conversation...But this is for in person conversation. On the...

    Nah, I could never call someone who tries as hard as Nolan does to do difficult material a hack. I will add to this discussion that my perspective is partially dictated by having to watch movies that...

    I think the Keynes approach ignores how people's emotions actually work, especially when it comes to something as subjective as art, and does you no favours. The problem with calling something...

    Also, for what it's worth Old Corpse, I personally have never taken issue with your opinions, only the way you've occasionally expressed them. I think you can use overly harsh and unnuanced language...

    Was there a deleted post? I haven't seen any name calling in this thread.

    The word hack has been thrown around and abused so much, at this point, all it means is the work of someone you don't like. A hack is someone who works primarily for a pay check, aiming for the...

    It looks nice. I like Arrival a lot too. Villeneuve always shoots an attractive picture. I find his pacing can be a bit too measured. I felt this especially in Blade Runner 2049, where every scene...

    I actually don't care if it's bollocks or not. The rules the movie sets up, and how they work, is internally consistent, and I think Nolan actually pulls of the whole reverse entropy idea...

    I saw Dunkirk at the Chinese in Los Angeles, and the bass was so overpowering it made me physically nauseous. I moved a few rows back and over and it wasn't as bad. Something about the acoustics of...

    SPOILERS



    After pondering the film some more, one thing I think doesn't fundamentally work with Tenet is the villain's overall motivation for 'ending the world'. I didn't really buy it. And the...

    There are just certain directors I expect more out of. For example, there isn't much technically wrong with Bridge of Spies, but it seems like a movie forty other directors could have done just as...

    I put the top three at the same top shelf level so the order doesn't matter. Insomnia is a perfectly fine film but it feels like small potatoes for Nolan, and not innovative the way Memento was....

    I liked it more than Dunkirk. I found Dunkirk characterless and devoid of human interests. Tenet at least had a single protagonist I cared about following through the narrative. I'd rank them--
