shit i didn't even see this thread

- fellini sucks. especially 8.5.
- el topo >>>> holy mountain
- agree with the others here, never was big on hitchcock, probably due to a super late exposure to him
- repulsion and rosemary's baby are the best polanski movies
- czech new wave is the only new wave that should be talked about and discussed at length, mostly because:
- valerie and her week of wonders is the greatest movie of all time
- the 00's belonged to south korea, no questions.
- shunji iwai is the best director at capturing teenage angst/childhood emotion i have ever seen. swallowtail butterfly is the movie slumdog millionaire tried to be, but failed hard at
- masaaki yuasa is a mad genius who has no parallel today. mind game, cat soup and tatami galaxy stretch human creativity and surrealism to areas not thought possible
- while we're on animators, satoshi kon captured the essence of filmmaking better than anyone in the late 90's - 00's. and by filmmaking i mean the whole process, from creation, to casting, to the thrill of going and watching something new on a big screen, feel those feelings suspended overhead like a reverie that refuses to leave, that elation from when the movie ends. the whole deal. you are sorely missed, satoshi-sama.
- the fountain is the best aronofsky movie.
- no one was better at capturing colour, hue and tone in cinema than kieslowski
- red cliff is the movie michael bay has been trying to make forever, and failing spectacularly at
- pastoral: to die in the country is the other greatest movie of all time
- come and see is probably the most harrowing war film that exists

How in the goddamn hell is that an unpopular opinion?

Yes, obviously that was not an unpopular opinion at all.


Here's one: The 2003 Pan with Jason Isaacs as Hook was better.

jap new wave is the best new wave

i'm interested in and post some examples of why you think Kielslowski is the best at color Rashed . I don't think he even touches Powell/Pressburger, Minnelli and Ozu imo.

Harmony Korine is a hack

Hitchcock's best movie was "Rope".

rope is my favorite so far, out of rope, notorious, the birds, vertigo, strangers on a train, and rear window.


vertigo is boring.

only seen sante sangre, but for a director that is supposed to be so visual, that was a hideous film to watch.

I still haven't seen a Jordorowsky, he seems like my kind of director.

And I'm not just saying that because of that one scene from Holy Mountain I know about.

Tree of Life was boring, pretentious, boring, thoroughly pedestrian as far as the (extremely thin) story is concerned, and boring.

Tim Burton's Batman is on equal ground with The Dark Knight, argubly better. Also The Dark Knight while good is easily the most hideously overrated film of this century thus far, granted I realize that's by no means an unpopular opinion here.

A Woman Under the Influence is a horribly written, aesthetically putrid, hilariously melodramatic and shoddily executed piece of pretentious "realism" horseshit.

I'm Not There was absolutely comical in just how much it had it's head up it's own ass. Yeah some of my favorite films could also be considered pretentious, but they still succeed as art or entertainment. This film fails completely at both. It's as uncreative as it is unendurable.

Ray Carney is a total clown.

word.

The second half of Full Metal Jacket is just as good as the first.

First two Harry Potter movies are better than the rest.


Outside of the 3rd I'd agree with that sentiment.
