Re: How come United 93 (2006) wasn't a bigger hit?

What do you mean "have to be"? Nobody said it had to be. It's a stylistic decision, and people can make good or bad stylistic decisions. A better question is why you would expect different filmmakers...

Because that's exactly what the handheld style is supposed to feel like. It's supposed to be less polished, and more voyeuristic, to emulate the feeling of being there. So this is basically the same...

Re: "The Boys" series adaptation coming to Amazon

Nice timing, I literally finished the first season last week. Pretty solid. I feel like it doesn't entirely know what it wants its tone to be like (it alternates between super grimdark and...

Re: How come United 93 (2006) wasn't a bigger hit?

I think it's the other way around. It'd feel more exploitative if they were using noticeable camera effects or trying to add to the drama in other especially artificial ways. Greengrass was very...

Re: Places I'll Be This Year (if you wanna have lunch)

Hehe, nah, same thread, bumped.

I might have to make another one though. Seattle is super likely again, and possibly Arizona around the holidays (this time-ish next year). Las Vegas is very likely...

Re: Starship Nostromo Entertainment Log

That's a good point. I dunno, Penn State was really good for awhile (and still is occasionally). I remember getting into one of their teams a little when they were undefeated for awhile, but it just...

It's not confidence, it's incentive and economics. Many nightclubs need security/bouncers anyway, in case people get unruly. They also specifically profit from people staying there and drinking...

Re: Why do filmmakers choose to sell to Netflix instead of theaters?

Probably, but it can't really be on the theaters anyway. It's asking a lot for them to clamp down on it unless people are already keeping it rare enough to be manageable. If it's happening constantly...

Re: The Irishman

Yeah, that's what I took from it, too, but it was definitely jarring because Pesci didn't really "feel" much older.

Totally agree re: old man movement, though. Most egregious in the scene with the...
