ITT: Pilots that deserved to be picked up.
I'll start, Coffin Dodgers.
Just finished Twin Peaks. Help me buy into the hype? Because the second season was such a fucking train wreck, I'm having a hard time understanding why anyone would want a revival.
They killed off one of the best characters in the first season (Leland Palmer's transformation was amazing to watch, thanks to Ray Wise's performance.) Then they turned one of the best femme fatales on small-screen, Audrey Horne, into a fucking shitty little cookie-cutter success story. Maybe the writers were banking on me being distracted by the addition of Heather Graham as Annie in season two, but she fucked blew it. She sounded like she was at a table read in every scene, looking up every other sentence because she obviously had a hard time remembering her lines.
As for plot structure, I knew what I was getting myself into, in terms of bizarre, with David Lynch at the helm and all, but at least the first season did a much better job of tying things together. The second season just created more plot holes than it answered questions.
There's nothing to get. You just didn't like Lynch and Frost. It's okay.
Season 1 is godly and the pilot is fan-fucking-tastic.
Season 2 is shit because
>Frost and Lynch fighting
>Network messing with show
Everyone agrees the second season is mostly garbage but it was because Lynch was being pressured by executive jews to solve the mystery when he didn't want to and cared about the series less afterwards. He'll have more control in the revival so there's something to look forward to.
Film prod question. If you had a single apartment and 0 actors, what kind of movie would you make? Keep in mind it still has to have a camera work, it can't be animation or static footage. Does anybody have some idea what could be interesting to watch in an empty apartment? I've been thinking about changing the room during time and tell the story of a person while he is outside and how his life has been changing during a certain period etc. Are there any movies that made something similar?
So what does /tv/ think of Oscar-bait: The Actor?
I watches this movie a few days ago. What do you guys think about it?
Literally the worst of the "new French horror" wave.
Pleb taste desu
What did he mean by this ?
Who else /oscars/ here?
They're mostly bull but i still care about them. What'll win Best Pic 2015?
Probably Spotlight. I can't wait to see the Oppression Olympics this year
Self-fagging to say i hope The Revenant wins and Innaritu will bring a new golden age of cinema upon us.
That said The Danish Girl will probably get it because a tranny-biopic with Eddy Redmayne is the oscar commitee's wet dream
In my opinion Prometheus was better.
Is anyone with me?
I would never compare them because Prometheus is more planet-side shit in an established universe and Interstellar is more space-time fuckery.
Judging them purely visually, I'd go Prometheus.
ITT: movies that peak in their first 2 minutes
The most accurate adaptation of a 200 year old book is set hundreds of years in the future and features blue space pirates. And it's an anime.
How the fuck did this happen?
Hollywood always sanitizes the Count of Monte Cristo.
The idea of a legitimately sadistic protagonist who owns a slave girl and uses drugs is just too controversial for the studio execs, so they make him more of an unambiguous hero and lose a lot of what made the character interesting.
Reminder that the voices you know Gilbert Gottfried, Larry the Cable Guy and Cheech by aren't their real voices
Groundbreaking theory incoming, Get ready. Rey is Obi-Wans granddaughter and Luke's daughter. Boom. Just did that. So Luke's sabre got all up in obi'wans daughter. Luke dropped reh off on Jeku wiped her memory and bolted. Kylo never knew Luke got freaky or had a daughter no one did. Oh snap. Super powerful girl. Meta chlorians coming out of every orifice.
Someone archive me already
>hating the Star Wars prequels
daily reminder that this is literally the most Reddit thing you could do. Big Bang Theory even have a huge hard on, about hating the prequels
How did they film this?!
