Also, as it's kind of already been said, encouragement doesn't necessarily mean you're telling someone they're good when they're not, it just means you're telling someone they can get good if they...

This whole thread is wacky. I still don't understand what the OP hopes to achieve by discouraging people. I'm thinking of the OP's story of discouraging someone who's great at another art form from...
'Who does this Wes Anderson guy think he is to make films in his own distinct voice and style?" -The Internet
I personally think this looks lovely. I anticipate every Wes Anderson film.
I'm not successful yet, and I often wrestle with skepticism over my own subject matter. As far as getting stuff done, the only mentality that works is to not care what other people think. I do it to...

It's my favorite film of all time.

Is this baout cpommercial success only? I was talking about a particular year with a lot of quality films. Grindhouse isn't everyone's cup of tea, but for me, it was one of the most enjoyable films...

2007 was pretty damn good:
There Will Be Blood
No Country For Old Men
The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

I've been dying to see The Master for years. Dark Knight Rises is the second on my list. I don't know much about Django, but I'll see anything Tarantino does.

I really enjoyed the film as well, and I liked the original too. My favorite Fincher? Not at all, but it's better than Benjamin Button.
I probably should have been more clear, but my goal is to really establish a day job in the industry (thinking of focusing on editing while making my little micro budget features on the side). I'd...
Last week, when I was trying to get some sleep before work, I was lying in my bed, freaking the poo poo out. I was thinking about how much I hate the script I just wrote. I thought about being stuck in...

I was thinking the exact same thing!
Just a heads up for those who don't know, the film is already streaming on Netflix.
I think the only flaw of the film was explaining the horn. I think they should have just...

Chan-wook Park's iPhone short. I don't know if that's been posted here already or not. I've been wanting to see it for a while. Looks very interesting....
I just got into Breaking Bad a month or so ago. I bought the first season blind, loved it, and bought the rest. I just watched the season 4 finale. Holy crap. I don't know if anyone here heard about...

I don't really think it was meant to be realistic. The film is heavily stylized. It didn't bother me, personally. I viewed the film as abstract realism.
Didn't Tarkovsky himself say he included the traffic sequence to, and I'm paraphrasing here "drive the idiots out of the theater"? He also apparently made it as a response to 2001, which he found to...

I'm going to see this again tonight, before it leaves theaters here. I really loved it.
I'll preface by saying I love Eraserhead, Kubrick, Citizen Kane, The Godfather Trilogy, and a lot of other stuff people have listed. But I'm going to second Solyaris. Also, I don't like to use this...
He admitted it himself, he is a vampire.

Jabba would probably talk in palindromes.

The Ewoks would have just been creepy, messed-up mutant babies, probably. And it would have been awesome.

Well, David Lynch said no, so we got Marquand.
The first season is available on Netflix. I had never heard of it, until a friend recommended it. I love it. It has such an odd style. And I love that it's not strictly comedy. The Bully episode, in...
Happy Days. My favorite episode is the one where The Fonz hits a jukebox and says "Aaaaaay!"
