I saw this a second time and did not like it as much as the first. Felt very tedious the second time around.

honestly dude I had trouble parsing this

manvstrees wrote:just kinda digging yourself deeper
you have to get past studio system and execs and also how this superhero wave isn't all that different from 80s/90s action movies before you can start on how culture sucks, since tv in general, and horror are both consistently putting out genuinely interesting and creative material and talent is consistently getting some money to create


if you want to chat about it

I don’t agree that horror is consistently interesting now

I think some horror movies have been interesting bc they have defied the multiplex style I talked about earlier

Hereditary for example used longer scenes that didn’t build to a crescendo every two minutes. It slowed down to capture the talk at a group therapy session for example. It wasn’t a typical horror movie.

My only point is that we could have much more of that, and that QT only seems special because we don’t.

nah man of course I said nothing like that

there’s a prevailing multiplex style that makes QT seem special because he doesn’t have to use it

I think it’s really lame when people use the idea that a distinction between high and low art is meaningless (which is true) to mean that it’s ok if I enjoy the same schlock over and over again

just because high art is bullshit doesn’t mean Aquaman doesn’t suck, but that’s where most people are

dude you are just taking every impulse you have about movies and spouting it out like it's all the same thought. i appreciate the conviction but you're not having a conversation you're just being a crank who is neither capable of appreciating what exists and instead is wrapped in a possibility for some thing better that is fueled by.. idk, arrogance? misanthropy?

all i can say is—been there, but chill.

hey please take it easy with all the insults

yeah I don’t like most of what exists and wish we had better movies

I don’t mean to bother you or make you upset. I agreed with what you said earlier even though you were pretty rude about it.

i think if you approached the topic a little differently you'd realize you're talking down to people who more or less agree with you AND have other related opinions.

galactagogue I’m not condescending because I don’t like most movies at the multiplex.

Check it out. You’re pretty insulting but I engaged with you in a kind way anyway.

that’s pretty much accurate

I think we could have a much better movie culture than we do. I think our movies are appallingly bad.

like, in my movie culture someone like Miranda July would get money thrown at her to make a movie every year

and she would makemovies with long takes and non superheroes talking about their lives


But I think I understand you. You think I’m a condescending misanthrope crank. And I don’t want to have a conversation. Got it.

i wonder if financing is really the main reason someone like miranda july doesn't make more movies. i also dunno what that has to do with whether or not QT is a good director or if he is at least capable of making good films.

Eyeball I disagreed with you about Bruce Lee scenes at first but they worked much better round 2. The Spahn ranch scene did too but its still probably my least favorite, or maybe it is just not as good of a character beat as the lancer pilot or Sharon at the movies but it’s better to me now. Probably my favorite Leo performance ever I’ll call it
