So the makers of The Expanse are giving us a Fedora wearing protagonist..
i am half throught he first episode and they didnt call him euphoric yet..
Also: no atheist jokes, no gentleman jokes. WTF is this show?!
There are plenty of non fedora wearing protagonists too.
How did Cinephilia even exist before the internet?
I have the entire history of World Film at my fingertips and have tried to watch 1-2 films a day for years now, and I still feel like my knowledge of film is extremely limited.
How did folks like Martin Scorcese ever become as knowledgable as they did, especially when theatres were the only means of watching films? Did theatres used to cycle through Classics more often?
>Did theatres used to cycle through Classics more often?
Yeah. They also lived in a time where popular films weren't a wasteland of commercials for children and there existed greater variety in the market.
>Yeah. They also lived in a time where popular films weren't a wasteland of commercials for children and there existed greater variety in the market.
Is this true though? I always feel as this is romanticizing the past based on a selective knowledge of it. Was the general public ever really partial to what today is considered "art film"?
>The story is set in between the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005) and Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
>Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters comes together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor's rule.
Gee, I wonder how it ends?
>Starts in ten minutes
>f3 Peep Show
>It's a Don Ramon episode
This is JUST the type of rehash I was expecting, it's nothing but a glib facsimile.
If Star Wars was all I had access to as a child in terms of sci-fi I probably would become one of those crazy fanboys, but thankfully I had access to anime from very early on in my youth years that my mental balance is very stable.
Seriously, if you have watched Akira, you'd realize just how sophisticated anime is and it blows away anything Star Wars would have to offer.
A lot of people mention Ghost In The Shell, which has just enough of sexuality in the mix to draw in the western audience I suppose but I must say that Ghost In The Shell is not even in my top 10 anime, not even close, that's just how deep the world of anime is.
Some anime is so disturbingly mature like Fractale that I wish it would challenge the system and submit it as a Drama category in the Oscars just to bitchslap the snotty Academy.
It's not just the level of maturity and sophistication anime has, it's also quite original, entertaining, and visually fantastic. I would regard anime as the highest form of cinema art-form.
But hey, me preaching about anime won't do you any good, you gotta go out and see it for yourself just how much you are missing.
The recent one I would recommend to check out is Sword Art Online which is light and easy to get into anime for the first time yet appreciate it as much, but if you want the heavy stuff right off the line check out Guilty Crown in which the plot is so complex and twisted that you'll need extra oxygen pumped into your brain in order to comprehend everything, and if you want amazing visuals and a gripping drama that also has awesome mecha battles Aldnoah.Zero is the shit.
Seriously, if you know anime like I do, Star Wars looks like it's something for little kids.
Does /tv/ like the new Star Wars droids like PZ-4CO and BB-8?
Where can I watch this?
Why does everyone act like we hate this because it has women in it?
I hate it because it's not the original cast and even then, it still doesn't even need to be made. I hate it for the same reason I hate most things that are/were a certain way, but changed in a gimmicky way, but still retains the same name.
No one was asking for this. not even women. It's only being made because no matter what it does, it'll impervious to nay criticism because they can play the soggy knees card.
Obi wan dies
Name 5 reasons she isn't the best character on the show
Give me 5 reasons she didn't steal every scene she was in
You can't, fuck your pro tip.
Because this guy was in it and he wins.
So, what will this motherfucker reboot next?
I was part of the production team.
Idris Elba is Ian Wright, a Starfleet commander who disappears while exploring the Unkown Frontier. The Enterprise is shot down while searching for him, but it turns out he's a traitor who has rallied an army of undocumented species from the Frontier to overthrow the Federation and seize control of the galaxy.
Sofia Boutella is the sole survivor of an ancient alien race that created a monolith that allows mass teleportation. Elba wiped them out when they refused to join his army, and plans to use the monolith to launch...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Let's be honest here, do you guys actually think that a Jew like J.J would really waste his money on Harrison Ford and then have him die off in the first episode? He'll return in the next one where Kylo Ren went back and picked him up or some shit right before the Star Killer explodes. If you actually thought his characther died here, you're a fucking idiot
Still movie of the year.
