I think I'm going to go with the nickname President Skroob after that news.

Weird to pass on stuff based on descriptions only. my mom is like that too. Someone is telling you "this is the best of the best' and you read a blurb written by a 1st year communications degree undergraduate and you're like "meh". I'll never understand it.


You destroyed all the trust we had in your list with the first suggestion. I couldn't talk her down

Well I’m glad I saved you from the bad episodes at least

Are you two the type that didn’t like Mad Max Fury Road or Gravity?

I think they are both good movies. You're not one of those people that think either one of those are amazing, are you?

I think they are two of the best movies of the last decade

The type of people that don’t like them are the type of people that instead of getting lost in highly atmospheric movies, they actively look for flaws cuz they don’t go to movies to escape. They’re just highly critical of anything they see.

I think your being a bit to generous to movies. I get the whole escape reality thing but there should be standards that truly great movies are upheld to.

At the Peterson Automotive Museum here in LA, they have some of the vehicles from each of the MadMax movies. You'd love it.

Those are two amazing movies, 100% they are on top 10 of their decade. Children of men is another that is just absolutely inmersive... Cuaron is one of my favorite Directors.

Children of Men is incredible. I was in awe. It went in my top ten of the year that year but it didn’t floor me like Gravity did. Loved Roma too and Azkaban is the only good Harry Potter movie (last one is ok)


Sixty, that museum sounds awesome. For great movies, I’ve realized it’s much more important how it makes you feel and if you remember moments. Those are so much more important than if a movie has met all the standards or criteria of a great movie.

Sometimes movies check all the boxes of what a great movie should be (incredible acting, cinematography, art direction, story) but still just FEEL flat. Two that come to mind are Atonement and Birdman. They are both flawless movies but I didn’t really feel anything so the hell
With them. Good movies for the brain, bad ones for the heart.

Gravity and Fury Road brought me somewhere I never thought I could go. Just total chills and a heartbeat out of control . It’s why I see movies now. For an experience

Villeneuve does that to me a lot so movie theatres better be open when Dune comes out

Is there anything more to this story than the guys word, or does TDS just got people acting like this is their first day on the internet?




I still haven’t seen Gravity. Fury Road was fun, but it’s not even the 2nd best installment in its franchise.

I saw Fury Road five times in theatres


Gravity needs a big tv with huge sound and total darkness. Super important . If you’re not immersed in space, you won’t experience it enough

Blah, Azkaban was a mess.

:takei:

I saw in theater once, enjoyed it, memed shiny and chrome with my mediocre friends for couple days and haven’t really thought about it since :V




Anybody watch Kingdom (the Netflix series)?

I just started watching it this week and I regret not doing it sooner. South Korea really took over zombies, just putting a finger to the stuff Hollywood been doing with them

You can still just watch it on your normal TV tho... The FXs are so damn good that that thing holds the effect... On regular TVs... I saw it with Violeta like 6 months ago... She was on the edge of the seat the whole time... She really liked some parts and lead to some pretty cool talks.

PS: Timh I think is on Netflix... You should totally watch it its just an amazing movie.

The greatest movies are the ones a lot of people remember decades later. Ie Original Star Wars trilogy and Titanic.

Titanic is not a great movie... Starwars is far more than a movie...

yeah, but neither is gravity. worse astronaut movie ever (other than that one that Kubrick directed about a moon landing), but still a good movie.

Almost Everyone knows Titanic. Even people who haven’t seen it. A poor boy from the lower decks falls in love with a 1st class passenger, giving us many iconic scenes that have been a part of pulp culture for more than two decades. It is at least a very influential movie if nothing else.

I was a projectionist when Titanic came out. I hated that movie. 9 reels IIRC
