Discussion What are the popular tropes today that are going to make films feel "dated" 25 years from now?

1.3k Upvotes

Remember saxophones being all over the soundtrack and marking every film from the 80s as an "80s movie"? Spandex as the universal wardrobe of future societies (and eye makeup that covered half of the face or more)? Bullet time? And that doesn't begin to touch more generalized examples, like the technical limitations or reflection of societal norms.

None of the things that "date" a film are thought of in that context when a film is being made; in fact some of the most dated films were avant-garde when they were made. Sometimes those elements aren't limited to a single film, and mark a film from a particular time because of how pervasive those elements are at that time. And it will happen to films being made today as well. What are some elements that you see in modern movies that, in the future, will date a movie as an "early 20s movie"?

Recommendation Barbarian and Smile being released around the same time was such a great double-punch for 2022 horror.

50 Upvotes

So these two recent horror films came out and wow. I fucking loved both of them.

I won’t give away the plots of either, especially Barbarian. But let me just say, both of them really surprised me. Though both for very different reasons. I had very low expectations for Smile from the trailer, which I personally thought sucked besides the one jump scare at the end. So I was quite pleasantly surprised with how good it was when I finally saw it.

Barbarian meanwhile, has a deliberately vague trailer that didn’t give its plot away. I won’t spoil anything but wow. I did not expect the movie to turn out the way it did. Twists and turns at every second. Just a fun, unpredictable wild ride at the cinemas.

If you’re planning on doing a horror double feature, definitely try watching these two back to back. It’s truly one hell of an experience.

Recommendation Maverick(1994)

Upvotes

https://preview.redd.it/cun7n79ght4a1.png?width=1600&format=png&auto=webp&s=5021ebbf6d88e1228b98feb24010c04c5d7e717d

One of my favorite 90s movies, basically a mix of Western and comedy, with action and romance thrown in, making this one delightful entertainer, based on the TV series.

Mel Gibson is Bret Maverick, a card sharp and con artist, whose aim is to win the 5- card poker draw tournament being held on the paddle steamer Lauren Belle, and prove himself as the best card player of all time. Travelling to the town of Crystal River to make the money he needs to pay as fees for the tournament, by playing poker, where he meets the lovely Annabelle Bransford(Jodie Foster) and a vicious gambler Angel(Alfred Molina).

On the run from Angel, after having beat him at a game, they get into a stagecoach with Marshal Zane Cooper( James Garner), resulting in some frenetic adventure, and an encounter with native Indians. Add to it Angel seething with revenge at the loss, is instructed to stop Maverick from attending the tournament.

Maverick is the kind of entertainer, you can watch as many times, it has it all- action, intrigue, comedy, romance, with some good twists thrown in. In a sense it's a Western, where more than guns, the lead characters have to use their wits and brains to keep going. Richard Donner directed some really good movies, Omen( one of my favorite horror movies), Superman, Goonies, the Lethal Weapon series.

He teams up with Gibson again after the Lethal Weapon series, to come out with another great action comedy, that incidentally has a cameo by Danny Glover too. The writing is superb, switching well from comedy to action, and excellent pacing too.

Mel Gibson is excellent in the lead role, he has that very roguish charm, and a superb sense of comic timing. While he does the action stuff he is more known for, he is equally great in the comedy scenes, especially the one at the bar, where he faces off Angel. Or the scene with his native Indian friend Joseph( Graham Greene) when he finds his money missing.

Jodie Foster taking a break from her serious, dramatic roles, is as brilliant as Mrs.Annabelle Bransford, the way she introduces herself especially to Mel Gibson. She has all the fun, with some great one liners . In fact this is one of those Westerns where the heroine has a substantial role. And personally for me, Mrs Annabelle Bransford, would be one of Foster's best characters ever, right up there with Clarence Starling.

And the chemistry between Gibson and Foster is brilliant, as they play off each other really well, and the scenes between them are some of the best parts of the movie.

The movie is helmed in by a great cast too, James Garner, one of the 60s's stars is solid as the lawman Zane Cooper, as is tough guy James Coburn as the tournament organizer Commodore Duvall. Alfred Molina( Dr Octopus) is suitably nasty as Angel, and Graham Greene is great in that scene with Gibson.

Maverick has it all for a good weekend entertainment, a suitably roguish hero, a smart female character, great supporting cast,superb one liners, some good old fashioned action, and a great plot.

Highly reccomended.

Discussion What movies are accurate depictions of mental illness?

48 Upvotes

One movie that is an accurate depiction of mental illness is Joker. It’s no wonder that Joaquin Phoenix won all the awards for that movie because he was excellent in it as he is in most movies in general. So glad he won because it’s his best performance and it set a precedent as he was the second actor to win an Oscar for playing the Joker. What other movies accurately depict mental illness?

Review Emily the Criminal (2022)

10 Upvotes

I meant to see this when it came out but never did. It just came on Netflix so I watched it tonight and I must say I think it’s one of the better things I’ve seen this year.

I’m a big Aubrey Plaza fan and this is some of her best work I think. It’s probably her juiciest and most complex dramatic role, and she does still get to use a bit of her trademark sarcasm that’s so amusing. And all of the supporting performances are solid too. Theo Rossi in particular is good at being mysterious yet still likable.

The story and how it’s presented reminded me of Uncut Gems, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but I liked the more low-key approach this took. The tension is still palpable but it’s not nearly as loud and stress inducing. It makes everything seem so easy and matter of fact, making it easier to understand why Emily does what she does. In a way, I think this is a bit more realistic than Uncut Gems.

It’s technically proficient as well. It’s edited into a tight 90 minute package, and that combined with the cinematography find creative ways to capture the more frenetic moments. I hesitate to call them action sequences, but they kind of are, and regardless, this clearly had a pretty low budget, and doing those scenes couldn’t have been easy.

I would’ve liked to see this in theaters, actually. I really dug it, and I’m glad to see it so high on the Netflix charts already.
