New Predator film was ba
Everybody Knows was meh.
I suppose every filmmaker has bumps in the road. What makes this suffer in comparison to, say, A Separation?

In the Mood for Love: Girlfriend was in the mood for love while watching this, so I didn't see most of it. Cinematography was nice, though.
This grows on me the more I think about it. Itís admirable in its understatedness.

Films I been seein':

Bullets Over Broadway: Pretty standard Woody Allen fare. I called the plot twist fairly early on. But the acting is all superb, and Allen is completely in his wheelhouse here. Writing is terrific too. 8/10

Akira: Shit.

In the Mood for Love: Girlfriend was in the mood for love while watching this, so I didn't see most of it. Cinematography was nice, though.

The Pervert's Guide to Ideology: Berkeley people introduced me to this Slavoj Zizek guy; he's a Slovenian communist who makes weirdo movies for weirdos. I appreciate how unhinged he is. Movie was an interesting watch, but most of his interpretations of different films are flat-out wrong. He's the ultimate neckbeard armchair philosopher. Some people on this site might get a kick out of him, but I can't recommend overall.

O Brother Where Art Thou?: Still holds up.

General Movie/Television Discussion Board / Whats your take on movie crowdfunding?
« Last post by m-wall on September 08, 2018, 06:01:50 am »
Hey guys,

Iím currently working on a research project for my university. The goal is to find out what potential backers are looking for in movie crowdfunding campaigns and if the crowd responds to certain signals.

As a part of this, I'm doing an online experiment, in which every participant sees a couple of crowdfunding configurations and is asked which one they'd prefer. I'd love for you all to take part: http://www.dev.bwl.uni-muenchen.de/cgi-bin/ciwweb.pl?studyname=moviecf&ref=OcYoL

But Iíd also love to hear your personal experiences and opinions on movie crowdfunding. Has anyone of you ever contributed to a movie crowdfunding project? What made you trust the creators? Thanks, everyone!

Been reading some Marx lately. I find it funny how nostalgic he seems for feudalism at times.

Interestingly, just found a compilation of 45 letters Marx wrote to his family; intentionally or not, it also cost 45 Soviet kopeks. I'll start reading it as soon as I finish a biography of Prokofiev, and will get back to you with that once I have a feel for it. (Along with the other big arguments-in-waiting on this board. I kept thinking there would be new developments in the Alex Jones thing, for instance, but it seems to have quietened down for good. While I find some of what you all wrote on the matter pretty hilarious in hindsight, nothing matches the editorials in the Russian patriotic press trying to whitewash him.)


For my part, I just finished Erasmus' Education of a Christian Prince. Good read.
