I'd also add this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkvbcxg9JkQ
Yeah to put it politely, fuck the academy.
Just take a look at How Star Wars was saved in the edit
We could also talk about Roger Deakins: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005683/ and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr-X0Isatbw
His speech was about 20 seconds, and he's be nominated 14 times.
Um...I think you kind of missed the point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God%27s_Not_Dead_(film)#Critical_reception
Here's a longer version, it a bit darker (as in exposure) but it gives it context: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6jSHFwpgpg
I would think they would get younger actors, which would probably ruin the whole thing.
A sequel to Blade Runner never seemed like a good idea and it turned out o.k.
I love Escape from New York (basically anything John Carpenter).
I would also say he was great in Pretty in Pink and, weirdly, Repo Man.
Oh, also Alien...but that's kind of a no brainer.
I watch "movies"...but I also like a really good flick that's unlike any other I've seen.
Barry Lyndon is it.
But you're right, if you don't like slow movies (and I mean slooooow) this one isn't for you.
Yeah I agree. I think the pinnacle was The Dark Knight. In that trilogy the other two were pretty bad.
I can't even tell any of the other superhero flicks apart and I absolutely hated Guardians of the Galaxy.
Just off the top of my head without getting all film school geeky, I would add Jaws to the list. It's the classic hero's journey with a 3 act structure and, like Die Hard, every plot device (and character development) from the first act onward propels the story forward to its ultimate end.
I still think Alien is better better than the sequel. There, I said it.
Actually I'm probably in the minority and all the die hards will always pick the first, but for me it's the second all the way. The big reason is in Alien when the anrdoid head is laying on the floor after being dismembered looks so...fake.
I also think Aliens is one of the best action movies ever.
With all of that said, to each his/her own. We have both, which is great.
Wow, you guys went old school. There are so many great ones that I could spend way too much time posting them, but here are a few more modern ones.
On the hand written tip a la Dr. Strangelove is Almost Famous
Apparently that's Camron Crowe's hand doing the writing.
I looked it up and they (Fincher I guess) had the books in the movie / opening sequence actually written.
I've said it before but I'll say it again - the Alien Trailer is the best ever and the the opening credits copy it.
As for old school and sex you can't beat Barbarella (NSFW)
I think it's going to be a bunch of Bond movies.
MGM has a ton of content, but it's basically all "Old" (the young ones really don't watch anything before 1970).
It's an interesting purchase, but I don't think it will do that much for Amazon.
I could be wrong.
