  • I'm confused about something. People who were saying it's, and I quote, "lazy" to have a director/actor theme...

    Wouldn't it be anything but. I mean, getting 10 quality films from the same guy isn't exactly all that easy for a lot of people.

        I don't watch them very often. Not a huge fan of them. Especially the ones of today. Their is a difference between smart comedy. And just plain fucking stupid comedy. I can likely count the comedies I like on both my hands, with fingers to spare.

                I find comedies to be a one off experience. They can only get less funny after the initial viewing, because you know all the jokes. Very few pure comedies out there, that I can watch over and over, and not become numb to them.

In the original, it seems that sometimes Keitel's acting was unintentionally campy at times... like when he starts waddling back and forth, when he's naked, and when he's looking right into the camera, then starts squeal crying, and turns around and starts walking, while bumping into the walls around him. At least with Cage, you knew that's what he was going for, cuz it's just how he is.
                    I think you overanalyzing it. He fits right in the gritty and dirty atmosphere of it, Ferraras version isn't polished in that particular way. I don't find anything to brag about Keitels performance at all.

                    Honestly, after the first round, unless people watch more of a list, the contest is more or less decided. The only factor left is how many people stop voting later on.
                    I hope there will be more than just one match per day...

                    Whoa. How did Tom Hardy NOT get nominated for an oscar for this? His performance is insanely good. This also had a great soundtrack, just like Nicolas Winding Refn's other film Drive.

                    Forget Bane, Batman should have fought Bronson.

                    Therefore, it is normal that when someone chooses a comedy, arise these types of divergences. Irrespective of American Pie or not.
                    Comedy will set in, when you begin to rate vanilla with -3's again. Just don't do it.

                      The 80's was a great decade for film.

                        It's a matter of knowing your audience, the same way musicals get punished in the voting, even though there are quite a few that are amazing. I'm glad the comedies get picked myself, because it creates some confusion during voting, as in how do you score American Pie vs Seven Samurai, or Airplane vs Chinatown. I appreciate that it forces people outside of an easy comparison.

                        I like comedies, but I'm with Heretic in the respect that there are very few that I like enough to rewatch and even fewer that I need to own. Having said all that, where comedies don't have a great deal of rewatch value for me, superhero movies have even less. Avengers was fine, but I'll never watch it again.

                            A few key secrets:

                            Even a good comedy is all over the place with it's love. I can easily say, DodgeBall, Zoolander, even Kalifornia are +3 comedies for me, for someone else, meh.

                            And some comedies aren't all that rewatchable, but I don't really love them any less as time goes by.

                            The trouble is finding one you can expect the majority to love and not be a "cult classic" loved greatly, but by few.

                            I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

                                Knowing your audience is the accurate sentence in a competition, it is true that in the case of musicals, a similar comparison can be established, for example Dancer in the Dark by Lars Von Trier, part musical, part drama, is an excellent film, regardless of this factor, when aid and serves as a support for storytelling can work perfectly, at least for me.

                                As I said I don't watch comedies, but I'm glad they are chosen, I like to see variety thrown on the table, and it is something that always pleases me.

                                For example: BeRightBack chose an anime (Perfect Blue), I must acknowledge that I have not seen or know much about anime, but from the little I've seen it looks awesome, his election has forced me to see it and maybe find a style of movies that I have been missing.

                                It would be difficult to assess any movie of any genre with a major classic, so every movie should be evaluated in particular, what it means and provokes in yourself, and removed from the context in which they are located.

                                That's the challenge, difficult to achieve, but the fun passes through there, I think.
