I went for the Trilogy screening in IMAX in Singapore. Fucking amazing experience. I wish I could do it again.
That sounds at the same time amazing and really physically taxing. Did you feel okay after it? I mean 6 or so hours in the dark with surround speakers blaring...
I so want to go to a LOTR marathon some day but not sure I could take it, I'd feel half dead after it.
Also watched Tangled with her a few days ago, which is another awesome animation where I didn't expect anything good at all to come from.
I loved Tangled, such a cute film.
I have a crush on the chameleon
It was awesome.
Oooooohhh boy. Lots and lots of them I really like American cinema from the 1970s though. Stuff like Chinatown, Taxi Driver and dozens more. Probably because that was the period I started with when I started actively seeking out acclaimed films to watch.
I love 70s era films too. The colours schemes were really great. Some of the best political thriller were made then. The Cold War was good for the cinematographers if nothing else.
Good god, I've never watched any of the old classics. At least, not the ones you mentioned. The oldest films I watched were James Deans' films when I idolised him as a teenager.
And old school Brando, not the fat man in the Godfather.
I need to watch Taxi Driver, seriously.
The fat man in Godfather was awesome
You have to watch Godfather I. and Apocalypse Now, seriously. I personally insist.
Henry Cavill is really, really, ridiculously good looking. That is the entirety of my contribution to the topic of the new Superman movie.
(also, I love the red boots)
As for Man of Steel, I don't intend to watch it. It feels too Dark Knight-esque. If Nolan directed it, however, I would watch it.
I read somewhere that it was rumoured that he wants to do a 007 movie...
Not sure my tardism for him would be enough to make me sit through 007 movie.
The new three are not bad, you haven't seen them yet?
Asked this girl if she wanted to go see the Hobbit and she replied that she's never heard of it.
Just had to post this here, what planet do these people live on?
now i know who to blame for the inflated scores of 70s film on imdb. most films from this decade range from average to awful, there only couple of stands out as you already listed. i feel most of these films fall under exploitation films and lack great narrative or storyline.
There is good and bad in all eras, but you can't say that when it was good in the 70s it wasn't fantastic
. Even the trashy crime films (=Dirty Harry) were awesome.
