2015 Directors roundtable: Ridley Scott, Quentin Tarantino, Inarritu, Boyle, O Russel, Hooper discuss filmmaking and current cinema
Tarantino talks about his favorite Jackie Chan action scene, a couple of interesting Kubrick anecdotes from Scott and Boyle, Inarritu namedrops Tarkovsky

>the screenwriter who is the reason the film exists at all
>not the producer
>while the screenwriter who is the reason the film exists
I'd say that "honour" would go to the main producer or group of producers, if anyone.
Anyway, the director gets the credit because they take what's down on the page and transform it into something that works within the realm of a visual medium.
What exactly makes Empire so timeless and good? This shit is 35+ years old and still feels absolutely flawless for today's standards.
Well-paced, thematically enriched without being excessive and getting in the way of the adventure. It's more melancholic than the original, but retains an underlying sense of hope which gives the movie depth (the final scene in particular is one of my favorites). Combine that with some strong characters and some cool action sequences and there you go.
ITT: Actors you can't stand
I've only seen him in Zero Dark Thirty and that planet of the apes capeshit. He seems fine but like most australian actors I imagine he'd be a lot better acting in his own voice rather than doing a generic american accent.
I don't even have a decent reason to hate him
Is it blue lightsabers for padawans, and green lightsabers for jedi masters?
According to the EU the crystal decides the color. I don't think the movies ever officially gave an answer what dictates the color. However Luke was originally supposed to have a blue lightsaber in Jedi, but ILM realized that because of the Tatooine sky was blue, the lightsaber wasn't visible in the outdoor shots against the blue sky in the background. So they changed it to green so that it would be more visible. Also there is a deleted, short scene from ROTJ which shows Luke assembling his lightsaber and igniting it. If you don't believe me about ILM changing...

Is Alien 3 worth watching?
>whomever you're waiting for on Jakku; they're never coming back
How do you know that? Hey! I asked you a question, how do you know that? Did you read the script too? What's that on the ground, is that the script?
Place your bets on which capeshit will succeed this year
Might make the same as Ant-Man or just enough to break even
>B vs S
Guaranteed a billion dollars
Probably not as much as expected since the hype died down
>Captain America Civil War
Will definitely be in the top 5 highest grossing movies of 2016
Will end up like Fantastic Four
2 hours of Ryan Reynolds making unfunny quips

A faggy Lex Luthor has ruined it already.
Same as above with the cringeworthy Joker.

More RDJ as Iron Man. Winner.
Rentals at best.

How did a prosecutor become so operator? Is it required training in Mexico since they're in danger from the people they put away (iirc journalists get killed there more than any other country, do they become operator too)?
>comes back from China after 18 months of torture
>behaves like a normal human being
Do you think they dropped the ball with this one? I wanted to see hardcore PTSD Bauer.
I don't know, Anon, do you want him to have dialogue?
>can't torture people anymore
Bauer had to get PTSD to become normal
