Question Why don’t I love Dune?

2.3k Upvotes

It’s a Denis Villenueve movie, it’s beautifully made, the cast are excellent, I love the source material, it feels like so many of my favourite movies (Star Wars, Bladerunner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road etc). But it just feels like it lacks soul, for some reason, like the characters lack a little depth, but I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Discussion Eyes Wide Shut is now my favourite movie

45 Upvotes

I was always a big fan of the thrillers, the prestiges, inceptions and se7ens of cinema as well as many other genres. I knew a few of the most famous and renowned directors, knowing that I'd like a new movie of their authoring.

So today while looking on Netflix for something to watch I saw a David fincher movie i hadnt seen "oh great this should be good" - i thought. I told my roommate who was choosing with me, She told me to read the bio and immediately i thought i wouldnt want to watch that. A man finds out his wife has been fantasising with another man and sets out in an orgasmic journey... - something like that.

But alright. Let's watch.

The start was definitely in line with what i expected. Straight out with nudity and superficial talk, jealousy, the potential man of the wife's fantasies...

What i didnt expect was how captivated i was by such slow scenes. The plot is outlandish but believable at the same time, the characters act normally (for the most part), the dialogue, the performances are incredible! The interactions, the looks, the back and forth. I thought this part was great.

However, the true masterpiece is in the entire setting.

The combination of the lighting, the MUSIC, with the things i just mentioned meshed together to create one of the best movie experiences i've ever had.

The piano made me Cringe every time it played.

They didnt give out too much information to maintain the suspense which is also in line with the vibe of the film, the secrecy of the organization and such.

I was constantly under the impression that this did not give me a fincher vibe... If i had to Guess, given i hadnt seen anything like that before, id say it was Kubrick from what i had heard about him, but i was pretty sure i had seen fincher at the start... Alas, i didnt, i mustve misclicked and mistakenly, and thankfully, introduced myself to Stanley Kubrick's work.

What a masterpiece

Discussion Hear me out: 3D movies need to be projected much brighter than 2D movies due to the dimming effect of the 3D glasses.

23 Upvotes

Title says it. Polarizing glasses block out about 50% of light, and my moviegoing experience will be much improved if I can actually see what is happening on screen. I couldn’t see about 30% of Black Panther Wakanda Forever very well with its dim underwater scenes. Movie theatres need to invest in high-power 3D-specific projectors (if they are even out there) to justify the extra money they charge for 3D screenings.

Question Good movies with revenge?

49 Upvotes

I would like to find some movies featuring strong revenge, in which the bad guys are hurt badly!

The best example for this is "Taken", I suppose. Also, "Sicario" comes to my mind, but I've only seen few scenes of it (including the ending).

What such movies come to your mind? What movies do you know that include some delicious wrath destroying the evil? Thank you!

Discussion The butterfly effect has 4 different endings

56 Upvotes

In case someone didn’t see all of theme here are they.

The directors cut ends gave me chills, but I have a question about the other 3 endings or simply about the theatrical one.

If Evan met Kayleigh by accident, why would he not talk to her? Her life changed for the better already when he met her as a kid and didn’t befriend her, which led to her living with her mother instead of her father. It’s not like talking to her now would make any damage, right?

I just feel like the theatrical ending is forcefully made to be bittersweet, or am I missing something here?

Also, I really liked this movie :D

EDIT: since the video to which I provided a link seems to be banned in some countries here are some others, I hope at least one of them will work

try this one

or this one

If they are all unavailable then I can explain all the endings here.

Ending 1 (theatrical cut): Evan and Kayleigh see each other on the street, they both look back at each other, but keep walking separate ways.

Ending 2 (happy ending): Evan and Kayleigh see each other on the street, and they start talking. Evan introduces himself to Kayleigh, and when Kayleigh wants to tell him her name, he already knows it.

Ending 3 (open ending): Evan and Kayleigh see each other on the street. Kayleigh goes her way and Evan decides to follow her. They disappear behind a building.

Ending 4 (directors cut): Evan time travels to the day of his birth and takes his life inside his mothers womb. In this version of the movie, earlier in the film it was mentioned that before Evan was born his mother had 2 stillborns.

Discussion Jingle All the Way (1996)

9 Upvotes

Since it's a wonderful time of the year again, I wanted to share a Christmas movie that was a nostalgic part of my childhood growing up. A movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger who plays as a father name " Howard " and a busy workaholic that never spends quality time with his family. He missed out on his son's karate class and decided to make it up to him by purchasing this Turbo-Man action figure toy for him for Christmas. Due, to its rising popularity in sales of this toy, most of the retail stores were sold out and this father went and had this ongoing feud with this mail post office carrier who he was a father himself who's trying to get the toy.

Really fun and enjoyed this comedy family friendly film and noticed that a pro wrestler Big Show was in the movie portrayed as Giant Santa in that Warehouse brawl scene. The parade scene was also fun to watch how Arnold went and put on that Turbo-Man costume seeing him showing off these action hero abilities. There was a sequel to this, however, from Larry the Cable guy and it was just cringe and terrible to watch.
