re: Least Favorite Kubrick Film - LoveThatMoney
[quote]I've just tuned out on artists who only care about the visuals. The visual alone is not enough for me. It has to be in service to an idea. [/quote] I've said for a long time that film must be more than just pretty pictures moving along on screen. ...

re: Least Favorite Kubrick Film - LoveThatMoney
[quote]PTA is just seriously overrated, but he isn't a bad film maker. And Malick... His technical skill alone puts him at the top of modern directors. Malick is a film poet, and I hate poetry post-1970. I've come to compare Malick to someone like Coleridge, these massively mythic stories told...

[quote]I've still never been more surprised in a film - in my life - than when it started raining frogs in Magnolia.[/quote] To be fair to PTA, I have not seen Magnolia, so I can't say the "rest" are garbage bags unequivocally. :lol:...

re: Least Favorite Kubrick Film - LoveThatMoney
[quote]Boogie Nights[/quote] The only movie of PTA's that I actually thought was decent. The rest have been garbage bags. There Will Be Blood is not a good movie at all, IMO. DDL just happens to be one of the best actors in a generation and it shows, though he basically reprises his role as Bi...

re: Least Favorite Kubrick Film - LoveThatMoney
[quote]Kubrick is garbage. Most overrated filmmaker of all time. More than Malick. [/quote] I agree, he's overrated, but how dare you compare him to Malick!? How [i]dare you[/i], sir!? There is only one other filmmaker comparable to the terribleness that is Malick while simultaneously being la...

[quote]I counter with this - the last lines of the film: quote: My thoughts drift back to erect nipple wet dreams about Mary Jane Rottencrotch and the Great Homecoming frick Fantasy. I am so happy that I am alive, in one piece and short. I'm in a world of shite... yes. But I am alive. And I am no...

[quote]However, if your imagination is shut off, because you're a product of the overstimulated, overteched, "Michael Bay, J.J. Abrams hit-them-over-the-head-every-millisecond" film audience, then you're going to miss the true genius of an artist like Kubrick. [/quote] Let's refrain from going th...

[quote]And if Full Metal Jacket is your rebuttal that Kubrick shows his humanity, well... prosecution rests. [/quote] :rotflmao: Was going to say the same thing but decided to let it go. The main character is pretty cold and the drill sergeant is downright inhuman. It works because it's the army...

re: Least Favorite Kubrick Film - LoveThatMoney
[quote]I feel like I've grown out of Kubrick. He's a wonderful visual stylist, and he makes some of the most beautiful movies ever put to film. That said, his movies are just so cold. He hasn't an ounce of humanity in him, it seems, and his characters rarely resemble anything approximating an actual...

[quote]BTW, the overuse of Peter Sellers and the assumption that the audience wouldn't be able to see through his disguises brings Lolita down. But James Mason's awesome performance brings it right back up again.[/quote] Lolita is one of my favorites of Kubrick's :lol: Interesting the var...
