Quote from: Milltown Row2 on March 03, 2024, 08:19:22 PMWatched Oppenheimer the other night, thought it was very good and while I knew the general history behind his involvement, this gave a bit more depth about him.
I thought it was top class all around and totally deserved the Oscar hattrick. The film succeeded on so many levels

There aren't that many really good films nowadays. Oppenheimer is really an exception. Creativity in the arts  is very weak. It's much easier to throw out another film in a series.

Rubbish.

"It's all over. There'll come a point when somebody will suddenly realise – there's loads and loads of Coldplay but there isn't a Radiohead, there's loads and loads of ITV1 sitcoms, and things with Robert Lindsay in a house, but there isn't a League of Gentlemen. Someone will be reading an embossed novel about a missing artefact, and they will suddenly think, 'Didn't there use to be books that were not just a list of events?' " (Lee's well-known parody of a typical Dan Brown sentence goes: "The famous man looked at the red cup.") In 40 years, he reckons, people will be saying, "Where's all that stuff gone that was ... good?"

Milltown Row2

During covid there was a definite drop in quality

Has some what improved lately but seems lacking originality at times and reverting to redoing old films or adding a digit on the end of a film (expendables and that car film I've never seen)

We could be missing plenty of decent films if the screenplay hasn't a 'Box Office' look about it and no producer will take a chance with it..

Think Netflix films and Prime are diluting things also
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

dunno about the drop in quality, bond and top gun were covid movies and both unreal

Milltown Row2

Top gun? Watched the trailer, which you'd have the best bits to hook the punter in, that wasn't great, but I'll give it a go

But as I said sequels or redos are plenty

Dune part two is an absolute masterpiece in film making. Loved it so much I saw it twice.

Watched two over the weekend:

American Fiction - clever and hilarious film. Good to see Jeffrey Wright in a leading role. Brilliant actor.

Napoleon - I enjoyed it, but was left a little unsatisfied with how much it (had to I guess) skipped or glossed over.

Fan theory that he died in the opening scene and the rest is a death dreamscape/fantasy

Never watched Top Gun. No desire to either.  But when  I hear it mentioned , I automatically think  of Team America.

America, f**k yeah!!

I'd imagine   they're pretty much the same movie  anyway

Top Gun 1 yes it was.

The new Top Gun was surprisingly self aware, while never quite dishonouring America.
