Favorite Disney film? Mine is Tarzan.

Damn, that is pretty fucking entertaining
>How Ebert taught us to discuss movies:
>1. Thumbs up, or thumbs down; is it good or bad?
>2. If you want to go further in depth, give a summary outline of the plot.
>3. Finally, for ultimate Ebert patrician status, apply your mores to the overall theme of the film.
. If you want to go further in depth, give a summary outline of the plot.
I actually agree with that. In fact, I think the only possible cinema criticism can exist amongst people who already have seen the film. Anything else is plebby "should I spend $10 to see this" reasoning.
Empire Strikes back has the best ending of the OT and maybe the PT . The music and the feeling of despair and loss but knowing there's a light of hope, makes everything okay...
Though I really wish they didn't shoehorn the credits theme in like that. you can tell it was forced and williams said "fuck I need to get up 2 keys in 10 seconds"
>you can tell it was forced and williams said "fuck I need to get up 2 keys in 10 seconds"
No you fucking retard, if he didn't want the modulation there he would've just transposed the theme, or written the first part in the same key. Modulation is something true composers don't even have to think about to use, it's not hard to do, and you use it intuitively the same way you use a typical cadence. It's there because that's how it came out of him.
Will you buy an Oculus Rift to watch films on?
As long as there's an option to just watch the fucking movie with disabled head tracking.
Why would I want to simulate sitting in a fucking empty theatre 100 feet from the actual fucking movie?
Yes I'm mad.
>you will never meet a woman who likes this film
life sucks, sometimes
How does this shit make sense at all? I generally enjoyed the movie, but just too many complaints for that high a score. Anyone who says otherwise is just a nostalgic faggot lying to themselves.
I'd probably put it in the 60-70% range. Good, not great.
>they count some fanboy bloggers as legit critics.
Why would this be a bad thing though? Certainly fans of a series are more qualified to critique a product they care about than a paid critic.
What went right?
should Luke have gotten closer to the dark side? would his ultimate rejection of it had had more meaning if we had more than Luke wearing black, force choking a Gamerron, and getting angry after Vader threatens Leia? Luke's character arc is the best in the series, but should it have been made stronger?
So theres literally nothing to watch right now
no more screeners
no good shows on
im actually thinking about fucking off to./lit/ tb
"Hancock" is the only film I've ever seen go from great, as in, actually awesome, to dogshit all within the same movie.
Seriously, people give this movie crap, but the first half was phenomenal. It was original and creative, the characters were interesting and unique, and the acting from Will Smith and Jason Bateman was great.
Then they did the plot twist with Charlize Theron and it made the movie fucking awful.
God the wasted potential pisses me off so much. I think this could have actually been one of the best superhero movies ever made...

Was casting yet another thing George Lucas fucked up in Episode I? How much can Jake Lloyd's shitty acting be to blame for the disaster that was that movie?
Would anything have changed if they went woth a better actor, or was the script just unredeemable?
The blonde kid at 3:20 seems like a much better choice to play Anakin imho... he has that determination and that "shadow" Jake Lloyd lacked.
>the disaster that was that movie
It wasn't that bad. Remove Gungans, replace Jake Lloyd, brush up some dialogue and scrap the space battle and the droid battle in the finale and it'd be great.
>And yet, smart people are out here campaigning for this poor little rich kid to win an Oscar because he never won. Look up “perspective.” Blinded, you all are, and you lack the ability to be sharp critics.
Well, /tv/? How can you say a privileged cis white male shitlord like DiCaprio gave an oscar-worthy performance?
Is that not exactly what the Leo Oscar meme is though? Nobody lists off all the great performances that have been snubbed unduly, they just say "How has he NOT won yet?" as if its owed and not earned
Can't say if he actually deserves one here or not since I haven't seen it but the meme itself is ridiculous
>people unironically don't like Phoebe
She was better than that bitch Monica
Can anyone really survive this drop?
