What are some masterpieces of the decade so far?
>I'm extremely attractive, rich, charismatic, but I touch myself too much! Feel sorry for me!
There's nothing wrong with masturbation, or even having a lot of sex if that's what you're into. Brandon was unable to connect emotionally to people, orgasms were just cold comfort, something to numb the fact that he was no capable of true intimacy.
The scene where his sister walks in on him masturbating is a powerful one. Normally that's not such a big deal, you know? People masturbate.
But he feels so much embarrassment and shame (lel) about it because of what that side of himself represents.
I absolutely love thrillers so this is a no-brainer for me, but I can see how some dislike it.
I lot of reverse hipsters think this movie got too much hype
I say fuck them this movie is amazing
I feel like the best part about Under The Skin was the music and maybe the concept of hidden cameras used in a serious manner.
Overall though the plot and characters were pretty weak.
I didn't watch the film, but I read the synopses of the book and the film. Why did the movie deviate so much? The book sounded like it was actually coherent, whereas the film sounded like some art house bullshit.
lol nigga u dumb
adam(YMS) is that you, you furry faggot?
jesus, if you're gonna troll, troll harder
good movie, but it's flat as fuck, why?
>doesn't like what somebody says
>they must be from reddit
I don't see you saying shit, either, you half baked fetus
prolly too hipster for plebs
>dat ass doe
I really hated this movie but I can't put a finger on why.
Maybe because I didn't get the hype? Why is this movie so praised? It didn't seem much different to me than any other movie about a lone wolf type of guy who saves the day.
I agree with all of these
Pic related, not only do I think it's one of the most gripping thrillers of the decade so far (which is a testament given its runtime) but it's commentary on media and relationships is enough to make this a "movie of the generation" type film, much like TSN is for the social media era.
Maybe I'm biased because I just saw it earlier today and I can't stop thinking about it but I really liked it
something personal against 2010?
>COMPLAINING ABOUT PEOPLE'S OPINIONS WHILE NOT EXPLAINING WHY THEY MIGHT BE SHIT AND NOT GIVING HIS OWN OPINION BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT TO BE SEEN AS A HYPOCRITE
So was Fassbender's character always into bears?
Two words, Denis Lavant.
It was meta, which people hate but I thought it was light hearted enough about it that it didn't feel like I was being beaten over the head with a message.
>hasn't taken a basic psychology class that investigates the nature of addiction and doesn't understand the cycle of regressing synaptic response as the key element of addiction
once again, people talking out of their mouths with no understanding of the subject
continue to think you know what you are talking about
yeah it was a real shame, the music and cinematography were great. That scene on the beach with the baby was so haunting and powerful but it was wasted in this film.
I also hate scarjo so theres that as well
>people disagree with me
>I'll call them a redditor
Post stephen dillane on /got/ :P
>people aren't acting retarded
>I don't like this
>it's getting in the way of my baneposting
Seriously, somewhere on this planet, YOU exist, what is it like to be so fucking SAD?
If someone references the "past decade" I think this could also be considered the trailing ten years. A decade need not be ten years corresponding to the 90's, 80's etc. but can also be any ten year period.
Any love for this film?
>mfw I almost rekt your thread without even trying
>mfw you like stephen dillane
>implying I take 4chan seriously
>implying that if you don't act like a fucking retard then you aren't being 4chan appropriate
you see, people like you will never move past the baneposting, and that's fine, have fun with that
are you the person I was talking to? ;)
name one legitimate criticism besides "it's the facebook movie" or "mark zuckerberg is unlikeable and autistic"
The Social Network deserves mentioning here if for no other reason than the sound design. Idk if it's the facebook quality OR the stars in Eisenberg & Fincher but a lot of people like to write off an otherwise technologically sound film.
At the end of the day though, FINCHERSHITS ARE FAGGOTS!.
Because there was nothing interesting about the story, the main characters held little depth or intrigue from the outset and little else was revealed from there, the narrative was a simple follow of a rise of a business empire but nothing in the nature of empires was explored, the antagonism of the lawsuit was unexciting not simply anticlimactic but lacking any climax at all and the social impact of Facebook or its importance was practically absent.
So if it wasn't about the characters, it wasn't about the empire, it wasn't about the conflict and it wasn't about the product itself what point did it have?
You are definitely biased. This movie's pacing is utter garbage. During the first hour you can barely tell this is the same guy who directed Zodiac and Seven. Also by the time the movie actually gets exciting, with a premise in place and intense conflict between the main characters, they throw all logic out the window, jump forward 5 weeks and the movie ends. I can see where he was going, but sadly, Gone Girl ends up being a half-assed crime movie, half-assed social commentary, with the typical Fincher-style twists thrown here and there. Movie of the generation? Lol. Watch more movies/10.
the only other 2014 movies I have seen are robocops, the dead 2 and GOTG
sorry for not having a full list
>not about the characters
dude wat. The core of the film is about relationships, mainly the slow erosion of eduardo and mark's friendship. Not to mention the themes surrounding someone with zuckerburg's personality creating arguably the biggest online social revolution of our time
post the 5 most attractive actors on /got/. I know you like liam ;)
Again though there's was nothing intriguing in that relationship, any soap opera can show relationships drifting apart but that doesn't mean I should care.
And again where was this "social revolution" in the film I don't recall a whiff of it being looked at or even the film understanding whatever significance it had.
Agreed. Social Network is basically Scarface or a similar kingpin film. I think Fincher consciously directed it that way. Zuckerburg climbs to the top but, at what expense? Every relationship he had in the film was destroyed.
And how does it end?? The kingpin hooked on his own supply trying to friend request Mara.
>the world is yours
"attractive actors for davos and shireen" ?
also did you know that pic related is my OC and you're copying the "stannis autist" gimmick I started long ago?
>the main characters held little depth or intrigue from the outset
I suppose this is more subjective, but I really enjoyed seeing how Zuckerberg acted when more and more power was granted to him and how calculating he was in business decisions. He was nothing short of practical, it was very Charles Foster Kane-esque
>the narrative was a simple follow of a rise of a business empire but nothing in the nature of the empires was explored
did you miss the entire Sean Parker subplot? Or Mark's tussling with Edward regarding any form of advertising and vehement desire to keep Facebook cool? Or the multiple facets of the company at its grassroots?
>the antagonism of the lawsuit was unexciting not simply anticlimactic but lacking any climax at all
>tfw "could turn it into my ping pong room" scene
>tfw "if you were the inventors of facebook, you would've invented facebook" scene
>tfw "point zero three percent"
aside from those narrative beats, the anti-climactic feeling was surely intended because, as Delpy said, "in the scheme of things, it's a speeding ticket"
>the social impact of Facebook or its importance was practically absent
maybe because it was about the origins of facebook??? And it's importance/message about interconnectivity and online communication was touched on multiple times throughout the film's back half.
>nothing intriguing in that relationship
If you say so, sounds biased to me.
>where was this "social revolution" in the film I don't recall a whiff of it being looked at or even the film understanding whatever significance it had
It was about the impact of American culture's "FBGM YOLO GO BIG OR GO HOME" on the brilliant minds of the younger generation. For a guy like Zuckerberg who isn't very charismatic and doesn't know how to feel about people caring about him it can ruin the lives of people around him.
>also did you know that pic related is my OC and you're copying the "stannis autist" gimmick I started long ago?
>I get my opinion from other people, therefore those who have an opinion of their own must have gotten it from the same place
Perhaps those films are geniuenly good. Good enough to be featured by a dipshit youtuber, have you thought about that anon?
whatever, are you going to post the top 5 or not?
also "attractive actors for davos and shireen"? pls stop avoiding questions
Was this you? lel
>also "attractive actors for davos and shireen"?
i'm not a pedo m8
Itt: I'm American so can't read subtitles and all the best films are in English
>Was this you? lel
obviously not, The actual guy showed up in a thread someone created with the picture I took from his twitter (it was probably you who created the thread)
>i'm not a pedo m8
I was talking about davos but you already knew it
pls let us have a frank conversation
This thread convinced me film is truly dead, like poetry painting and theatre its become an awful self serving community of narcissists who mistake the new for interesting, the incomprehensible for the profound, the cryptic for worthwhile and most sadly the arms race of abstraction for the search for truth
Its no wonder television has been steadily outproducing the medium in quality, I'm not at all unrelieved to say its been some time since I've bothered going to a cinema.
I’m Still Here
A World Without Women
Goodbye First Love
4:44 Last Day on Earth
A Burning Hot Summer
The Loneliest Planet
To the Wonder
I Used to Be Darker
The Wind Rises
Nobody's Daughter Haewon
Inside Llewyn Davis
Welcome to New York
Still The Water
I agree with many of these. But the top 5 are redoubtably these ones
As the board grows I think its inevitable the split will be made.
I just look forward to the incoming crash of the western cinema, its going to hit these retards hard and buckle the trend.
>Holy shit, he's the twitter guy?
He was asking Cogman some questions about stannis when /got/ "raided" his twitter. I took his picture and spammed it a bit, he showed up once asking why people were using his picture and later, in the day of s04e09, he uploaded that picture you posted
>I already answered that question
You still sound dodgy though, but I don't think I have any more questions
My bad, forgot pic
captcha: fatisfaction. Fucking SJWs own captchas now?
