  1. Haven't seen this but Bigelow's previous movies have been more flatly observational than outright nihilistic. I think audiences are open to the idea that we still have these problems and we need to figure out better ways to work them out, but I don't think they really want to hear that the world sucks and there's no hope for any improvement. We need to have something to strive for no matter how unattainable it seems. Indeed, that's generally the only way change is going to occur.
  2. 10 years I think is the acceptable mark for dubbing a movie a "classic". But with both movies being made by auteurs with fanbases they probably aren't going to be forgotten.
  3. It's a nicely put together trailer, but pretty much any action movie can look good when edited like that.
  4. Most American people awkwardly veer between making fun of Americana and earnestly buying into it too. Probably exactly why the movie spoke to them.
  5. Valerian's opening indicates a limit to the narrative that audiences want "bright, joyful, colorful" blockbusters. There wasn't much of a real hook if you didn't know the backstory of the project. To the GA it just looked like a generic space adventure; regardless of how much of a labor of love it was for Luc Besson. Audiences can handle dark and grim as long as it feels right for the material, and I think Dunkirk pulled that off better than War/Apes did.
  6. Snyder's probably also thinking that if he's there, the panel would become all about him and his daughter and he doesn't want to deal with that.
  7. Yeah, if it's "torture porn" it's definitely not going to appeal to the audiences drawn to the "triumph of the spirit" racism movies.
  8. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    He's been a head case much of the time he's been here so it doesn't surprise me much. If this is the end of the Cavs dynasty, so be it.
  9. BOT Member Meetup proposal: Toronto, ON (September)

    Just bought my $3.60 round trip bus fare. I'll be getting in Toronto on September 10th at 11:25 AM and leaving at 9:15 PM on the 14th.
  10. Nolan's style still seems like a breath of fresh air among blockbusters. I don't want to sound pretentious but there's something to be said for finding visual splendor in things as they are without having to resort to a lot of CGI and fancy camera tricks the way he does. His movies are probably going to age a lot better than most other current big budget films.
