Make Movies Great again (2017)
Yeah, it's an oversimplification. A more nuanced argument would get into the contexts through which something becomes or is seen as art. Like, art is not just aesthetic, it's political, cultural, all that shit as well. Things can be valuable for different reasons obviously. I'm probably not well enough informed and definitely not energetic enough for a more thoughtful convo. And of course, even the worst superhero movie has thousands of tremendously talented artists working on it and doing incredible work

Superhero movies mostly aren't good because they're mostly the same. They're mostly the same because they're more products than works of art. If you have a product that does well in the marketplace, you don't drastically change it when you release the new version. You keep it mostly the same because that way you minimize risk. That's not what's art is about though.

"He goes on to explain that the elites use these rituals and children to blackmail each other (just as many of us have theorized). He said the elites COMPLETELY BELIEVE in the powers of darkness and light and in Lucifer." The last two sentences don't really make sense together, do they'

Interesting! I'm a big Allen fan, but found this one pretty middling as far as his work goes. Have you seen Crimes and Misdemeanors'

Emma Stone was distracting for me (generally a fan of hers), but it's just one of many reasons why I'm pretty mixed on the movie. I like Gosling as a singer when he's with Dead Man's Bones, but, here at least, his voice doesn't translate well to musicals. They are generally very charming as performers. Def agree there

Pretty sure it's from 1969, but yeah, it's a great movie, too!

I think this would technically be a sound mixing issue, not editing, but whatevs. Your larger point still stands imo. gd they are bad at singing and the whole "they aren't supposed to be great singers, they're supposed to be normal ppl" argument is super lame. you think in every musical where the cast could actually sing, they were playing talented singers.

I think Clev is a worse matchup for the C's than GS tbh, in large part, because the Warriors also suck at rebounding. Obviously the odds are astronomically against them winning either series

Hahah fair; it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's mine. Cool that you gave it a shot, though. One day if I have the time and if I'm not so lazy, I'll write about why I like it so much

The Academy never picks the best movies, imo at least. But of the ones that are in the realm of what the Academy might choose, Moonlight is a great choice, I think. It or Manchester is the best of the BP nominees.

Moonlight is so much better than La La Land. Not sure what the problem is here'

If you like Key and Peele at all you should 100% see it. Works as pointed social commentary and as a horror film imo

Get Out has 142 positive reviews on RT and 1 negative review and the negative review is Armond White. I saw it on Saturday. Really good.
