Favorite Terrence Malick films?
« on: July 25, 2016, 02:11:16 pm »
I'd rank them:

Knight of Cups: 9/10
Days of Heaven: 9/10
The Thin Red Line: 9/10
Badlands: 8.5/10
The Tree of Life: 8/10
To the Wonder: 7/10

Can't wait for more people on here to see Knight of Cups. I'm sure it'll be polarizing, but I absolutely loved it.

Badlands is easily my favorite. 10/10 film right there. I plan on seeing Knight of Cups soon, but I don't know where to find it. Days of Heaven is an 8/10 for me and The Thin Red Line is a six. I don't know... Red Line is just very forgettable for me. If you had shown it to me and asked me who I thought directed it, I would never have said Malick. It lacks a certain style that Badlands and Days of Heaven had.

Speaking of which, I was thinking about Days of Heaven's soundtrack just the other day... simply beautiful.

You might like Days of Heaven, 'Blum. It's one of those films that's really grown on me. Though I couldn't say it's better than Badlands...

I definitely suggest you watch more. I had only seen Tree of Life before this year, and now all I've got left is The New World. He's an easy filmmaker to get immersed in, due to his always fascinating and evolving style of filmmaking.

Only seen three Malick films, but for me it's  1.Tree of Life 2.Knight of Cups 3. To the Wonder. Have to watch the rest before Weightless releases.

I still haven't seen any of his movies. I blind bought The Thin Red Line a while back, but I don't know if I should start with that.

I recommend Badlands. It's definitely in my top 20 movies of all time.

Had to pause it a couple times when I watched it(gets a bit meandering and emotionally draining), but I think overall I enjoyed it. Definitely don't have any desire to rewatch it soon. I remembered the actors talking about how Malick just pointed the camera at them and let them improvise most of the scenes, really made it more interesting with that in mind.

I recommend Badlands. It's definitely in my top 20 movies of all time.

Ah that Criterion release looks pretty tempting...

Saw Tree of Life and didn't like it. But I have been interested in Badlands for quite some time.

The dinosaur was the best part.  I've been wondering what it meant for quite a while.
goodbye!

It's been a long time for that one. Once I get around to watching some Malick movies I'll probably give it a rewatch. But yeah, the dinosaurs I do remember being the best part.

After seeing Knight of Cups, I think I'm swearing off Terrence Malick films for the rest of my life.

Yeah, understandable. A film like that is impossible to beat, so it'd be depressing to see Malick try desperately  to top it.

I guess Refn and Lars Von Trier were trying so hard to claim the "Most Pretentious Asshole in Hollywood" award for themselves, Malick had to step out of the shadows and show them how it's done. No one does self-indulgence like him. Try as they might, those pretenders could never possibly top the incredible revelation: "Los Angeles is vapid and soulless." Wow. If Malick weren't here to deliver these shocking and groundbreaking truths to us, who would?

Anyway, this movie was a very fascinating trailer for a movie I'll never get to see, so I'll give it that.
