Really, what exactly did I do that wasn't accidental?


Most web browsers come with a built-in Google field. Top right corner. Can you see it? It's that little box that says "Google" in it. Takes up about 1/4 of your toolbar. Can't miss it. Which is why I assume you didn't.

I'm sure you're a top bloke. But I found what you said to be in poor taste. Very poor taste.

But I didn't accuse you of being racist. I simply described your comment as "borderline racism". "Borderline". As in, "Watch yourself. You don't want to be saying shit like that in a public place where you could end up with a black eye...or worse."

It was a shot across the bow. Some free advice. So holster the outrage and take it as a favour from me to you.



Borderline racism imocould just have easily said bruised eye
ffs there was no racism here

Got to be Nick Love.

He represents everything I dislike in cinema. The man does not deserve the amazing job he has.

I haven't seen one of his films but to be fair they all look like shite "cockney geezer oiy-oiy" type of gubbins. And he came across like a total cunt on Top Gear.

Nick Love's films stink the place out but it's Paul W.S. Anderson for me. Shockingly inept filmmaker.

And there's no justice. As soon as I want to film my wife performing in slo-mo, it's off to marriage guidance!

At one point Love compares his film to Scum! What a proper pair of bell-ends.

I may have found the worst director of all time - Jonathan Levine.

I've just watched All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, which I thought was a steaming turd of a massive shite. I then IMDBed the movie and saw the director's credits:

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)
The Wackness (2008)
50/50 (2011)
Warm Bodies (2013)

This is a seriously bad career.

I hate the first movie, failed to finish the next two and haven't seen the fourth. Publicity material makes Warm Bodies look like a poor film in my opinion, but with this track record I expect a terrible movie now.


All the Boys Love Mandy Lane review:
Awful, woefully dull non-event of a film. Nothing happens for about an hour and then some brief, poorly staged action takes place; then it's topped off with a horribly fumbled twist. Just such a massive waste of time. The script is piss-poor and the direction very weak. The cinematography is a weird combination of over lit and under lit lighting along with pointless MTV style visual effects from time to time. All the characters are unlikable and the lead is one of the most boring people ever put on film. She is so boring that the writer struggles to put any dialogue in her mouth or sustain any conversations between her and the other characters. The whole thing was just an annoying, pointless bore. There wasn't much violence, and the kills were poorly filmed. For a slasher it had nothing to offer. Perhaps I wasn't paying enough attention at the end, but I didn't hear any explanation for the motivation of the bad guy. Why do no competent writers and directors ever make horror films? Why is it always left up to the talentless to make them? I hated this film. Truly terrible.

1 out of 10

The Wackness looked promising but I gave up on the movie about twenty or thirty minutes in as it annoyed me so much.


50/50 review:
It doesn't work, nothing was clicking. Eventually it became boring so I quit 50 minutes in after they pick up the two girls. A failed movie.

1 out of 10

-------------------------------

M. Night.

His problem IMO is that hes stuck in the 50s. His techniques and sensibilities are from that era. If he was making and releasing films alongside Hitchcock they would be great. This isnt the 50s anymore. That controlled, mannered acting; those long barely edited sequences; the relaxed pacing etc. His movies look old fashioned and comical to a modern audience. Hes a 50s director working in the 00s and 10s, and hes very, very out of place.

Harmony Korine gets my vote.

I find his work pompous, pretentious and downright dull.

I have no self control, so I think I'd probably kill the Wayan brothers if I ever met them. Lucas at least gave us Star Wars, so probably just a kick in the nuts for him. A sharp slap for Shyamalan, hopefully smarten him up. I wouldn't give Bay the time of day (no rhyme intended). I also really, really don't like Guy Ritchie.

If he has a right behind anything, it's the camera. It's the page he shouldn't be near.

Woody Allen, in my opinion, is a terrible filmmaker. A lot of you will disagree, but I have never seen a film by him that appealed to me in any way. Midnight in Paris was crap, and that was the movie from which on I hated Owen Wilson. Annie Hall, is annoying to put it simple. My hate probably comes from his writing/acting because I hate his characters probably more than the movies.

I used to think the same thing for years, I never liked any Allen films I had seen which was mostly his newer stuff. But when I first joined this forum someone (can't remember who it was, maybe rick_7) recommended I watch The Purple Rose of Cairo which I thought was fantastic. Since then I've watched Radio Days, Broadway Danny Rose, Hannah and Her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors which I thought were all excellent. So I would recommend checking out his 80s period films if you haven't seen them yet.

Wut?

I'm joining on Paul W.S. Anderson. How people still payed to see all those sequels for Resident Evil is a real mystery to me. I don't know how these directors still pull it of to raise budgets for films like Pompeii. You start to wonder if those studio executives ever watch films..

Disagree on Shyamalan though. He has indeed made bad movies recently, The Last Airbender was a disaster and I won't even bother watching the one with Will Smith and his son. But I'm a big fan of his earlier work, I still think Signs (except the ending) is one of the scariest movies I've seen. The atmosphere and suspense in that film is great.

Anderson's films are relatively cheap to make and they turn a profit. That's how he's been able to work as long as he has.

Damn you're right, just checked box-office mojo.. His resident evil sequels make over 250 million Oo And the piece of crap that the Three Musketeers was even got to 130 mil.

M. Night Shyamalan. What I find most difficult to comprehend is that there are still morons in the business who are prepared to finance the moronic drivel that this talentless hack keeps churning out with such monotonous regularity.
