Re: Are audiences so sensitive and offended by movie content nowadays?

Well one thing is though, that if Hollywood does make movies that these people who complain want, they still won't be satisfied I don't think. They will find problems in those movies then, and then...

I have question about film aspect ratio before digital.

So having taken filmmaking courses, and wanting to get into that field myself, a lot of people will crop their movies to a 2.39:1 aspect ratio, and other filmmakers will say that that's 'cheating',...

Re: Best Coen Brothers Film

I haven't seen Barton Fink yet, but I would have to say Fargo, No Country For Old Men, The Big Lebowski and Blood Simple are their top 4.

Re: Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

That's true. Would a movie like The Birth of a Nation (1915), be considered a so bad that it's good film? I am going by the scripted material but obviously the production is still top notch.

Re: Am I the only one who didn't like Spider-Man: Homecoming???

I didn't notice that Archie similarity, interesting.

I also agree that Spider-man 2 is the best one. I think that The Amazing Spiderman, the first one, is the second best, cause I thought they...

The movie was a flop as I understand, and audiences and critics hated it. And I can sort of see why cause it's so stupid, but it's so stupid to the point where I kept laughing hysterically...

But if he won the bet, those people he owed would get their money back. So was Arno not seeing the forest for the trees?

That's kind of how I feel about putting Terminator 2 on my list cause even though it's an action fantasy where the plot is not exactly a mindblowing drama, it has a lot of rewatch value for me.
