tempted to go with kingdom of heaven on this and i don't even know why

goole, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:27 (thirteen years ago) link

cause all things considered kingdom of heaven is a pretty dope movie, especially the director's cut!!

the dan glickman from the hilarious motion picture association of america (max), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:29 (thirteen years ago) link

Ridley Scott is max's cinematic Obama

Dr Morbius, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:30 (thirteen years ago) link

definitely

(both excelled at making TV commercials)

Dr Morbius, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:31 (thirteen years ago) link

have not seen directors cut!

so much ridiculous garbage in KoH but yeah it's really beautiful in parts.

goole, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:32 (thirteen years ago) link

An actual good zing from Morbius A++++

The Five-Dollar Footlong Song (Pancakes Hackman), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:38 (thirteen years ago) link

i think what attracts me in KoH is the irritation of watching a movie simultaneously want to dig into the "reality" of people's motivations in the crusades, but shy away from how completely alien and insane it was -- the good guys all turn out, wouldn't you know, to be modern democratic liberals

goole, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:42 (thirteen years ago) link

It has several distinct weaknesses, but I adored 'The Duellists' as a kid.

What's the matter, London, can't you read fish? (Michael White), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:44 (thirteen years ago) link

i seem to remember liking white squall

hyperspace situation (gbx), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:50 (thirteen years ago) link

Went for Someone to Watch Over Me. Haven't actually seen it in about a decade or more, but I dug it. It's like an un-flashy, non-futuristic and stripped down sequel to Blade Runner (I know stylistically Black Rain is more akin to BR, but the thing about Black Rain is, it's a bit shit + Tom Beranger >>> Michael Douglas).

DavidM, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

does someone yell "white squall!!" at some point

goole, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:53 (thirteen years ago) link

xp

goole, Friday, 14 November 2008 18:53 (thirteen years ago) link

i remember liking gladiator before it got crazy overrated. the classics nerds i knew in college were all excited about period detail.

i don't i've seen any of these after black hawk down.

some know what you dude last summer (Jordan), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:55 (thirteen years ago) link

white squall is pretty good as i recall

Once you cut out Blade Runner and Alien, Tony starts looking like the talent in that family.

Domino, Man on Fire, that time thing with Denzel, Enemy of the State, Crimson Tide >>>>>>>>> all of these

sad man in him room (milo z), Friday, 14 November 2008 19:27 (thirteen years ago) link

I've never seen True Romance or Top Gun, but they're probably superior as well.

Y'all would seriously rather watch Gladiator than Man on Fire?

sad man in him room (milo z), Friday, 14 November 2008 19:29 (thirteen years ago) link

i'd rather not watch either of those shitty films but gladiator is better

no offense but you are fucking retarded

the dan glickman from the hilarious motion picture association of america (max), Friday, 14 November 2008 20:09 (thirteen years ago) link

like i can understand getting all challopsy about tony scott who imo is underrated but to do so without ever having seen his two best movies is like, commit yourself to a mental institution because you have some kind of disorder

the dan glickman from the hilarious motion picture association of america (max), Friday, 14 November 2008 20:10 (thirteen years ago) link

no offense obviously

man on fire and domino are practically unwatchable

hyperspace situation (gbx), Friday, 14 November 2008 20:19 (thirteen years ago) link

Domino is a little too cross processed and a little too Keira Knightley.

Man on Fire is the awesome.

I had an idea that in toto his career was impressive.

I still haven't watched The Counselor or Someone to Watch Over Me.

Alien bored and disgusted me in high school (but it's FEMINIST lol)

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Monday, 28 August 2017 11:20 (four years ago) link

said it ages ago, the longer his career goes on, the less impressive it looks. and i say that as somebody who usually appreciates empty stylishness.

Scott’s explanation for the horrible box office performance? Apathetic millennials.

“I think what it boils down to — what we’ve got today (are) the audiences who were brought up on these fucking cellphones. The millennian, (who) do not ever want to be taught anything unless you told it on the cellphone,” Scott said.
