    That's not especially productive. The beauty of art is as, you stated earlier, "in the eye of the beholder". You and Line may subscribe to different schools of film reviewing, however that does not make your insights any less valid or valuable. In fact not supplying your opinion takes away something from film discussion. Films are not made just for those who put them under the mircoscope, those who have a very finely tuned film palette, they are made for everyone.

    If a movie speaks to you on an emotional level and if it has great significance to you, you may call it great. Greatness is not achieved in art through technical skill. Shakespeare's writings are not famous simply because he employed Iambic Pentameter in his writing, they are great because of what he used words to tell, and the connection that makes with people and their lives hundreds of years later. Personally I find Shakespeare very over rated, but that's just me, I find there are other authors who better speak to me.

    Some of us may choose to talk about film in a very objective fashion discussing cinematography, lighting, musical score, pacing, plot, etc however some may choose to simply enjoy the experience on film more than discussing it and dissecting it.

    Certainly there is nothing wrong with either approach to enjoying film.


    Peace

    That's just not right. Watch it again. I find it hard to take this seriously.
    IMO it's a good movie, not great. Better than a 4! It was constructed to well, with too many great shots to be a 4 movie. A 4 IMO is failure, and I don't feel this movie failed.
    Please enlighten me to your thought process.

    What did you give Tarkovsky's Mirror? Or Stalker? Or Antonioni's the passenger?

    I can't believe you stated that the film was well shot. It was a faux-documentary film that reveled in its own artifice.

    Sweeney Todd - 8.5/10 - I really enjoy the movie. My rating is based a lot more around the score though rather than the other movie components.


    She really looks like someone set her face on fire and put it out with a bike chain.

    ^^ I found Sweeney Todd to be pretty average.

    Felt that it was all just a bit too predictable, not a great deal of dramatic tension, and the humour was trying to be too black (and as a result was a bit too un-funny).

    Don't get me wrong though, still better than most of the films going around.

    I didn't say that, exactly. I said that there were too many great shots to be a 4.

    Tonight, watched 30 minutes of Millennium Mambo and then Antonioni's
    Eclipse
    &
    The passenger

    But I counter that it's faux-documentarian style makes it aesthetically generic, thus disagreeing that it has really any shots worth remembering. Anyway, why did you only watch 30 minutes of Millennium Mambo? Now there's a film worth watching.

    Totally agree, It is a film worth watching. Much Tarkovsky-ish love there. It started as a comparison of approach between Millennium Mambo & Eclipse. similar stories.

    Trying to have enough time to watch a Jean-Luc Godard film, breathless I think, which we didn't get to.

    For liking a Vampire movie??? I think not...:talkhand:

    On another note, I saw:

    My Little Pony: The Movie - 10/10 Everything about this movie was A class and the story blew me off my seat. Definitely in my top 10 movies of all time.

    Every time Line blasts a movie I like, like how I liked Twilight, when I watch the movie again I can't help but notice everything he says... then I don't really find anything about the movie that great. Thanks a lot Line

    I think I am going to have to not mention movies that I have seen :keke:

    ^^ Line wins :linedrunk:


    There maybe something to this reviewing of movies. Becoming less of a passive viewer and more active viewer may help some people find more in their entertainment (or less in the case of anything starring Will Ferrel).

    will ferrel is awesome and makes comedies even better. this is not up for dispute. i'd hate to watch movies and not be able to actually enjoy it for what it is rather than dissect the living daylights out of it.

    i can't believe you guys reaming blake for liking twilight
