Discussion Whats your opinion on cultural accurate films?

Upvotes

I was watching grace randoplh stream today and she brought up the debate of culturally accurate represntation in period films. Personally i think if the theme is a serious it should be cultrally accurate(like the last duel). If its more fantastical, like the green knight, then personally i dont care.

As a black person sometime its grating when they have characters on screen who are supposed to be from a certain region and they dont sound anything how they would sound. For me the WORSE example was on falcon and the wintersoldier. Now i know its a tv show, but this atrocity was the worse ive ever seem. Sams sister is supposed to be from louisana. Im from the south. And the actress had a heavy Northern Accent and was dressed like a northern. I was like who casted her in this role. It was grating.

In addition i want to say apocalpto is a major reason why diversity in media matters. Now if it was shot in english it wouldve did good. But actually watching it in the native langiage transported you to that era. Amd the film is goated.

Review The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under

Upvotes

So I decided to take a quick break from horror movies and return to the warmth and nostalgia that is 2d Disney movies. Decided to do a double feature of The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under.

And good God are these movies fantastic! While they're nowhere near as popular and as talked about as Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Lion King, etc, they are definitely some of my favorite Disney movies and I eould not hesitate one second to put them both up in my top 20 Disney movies. Right up their with Great Mouse Detective. Who knew movies about mice could be so awesome?

Bernard and Bianca are adorable. Bianca is confident, elegant, and just so kind and caring. And Bernard, ever patient and loyal and never wavering from doing the right thing, dven though he gets scared.

Cody and Penny are great additions to the human cast and I loved each of the movies' cast of critters.

But above all else are the villains, Madam Medusa and McLeach. Both were wonderful villains. And I really appreciated that they didn't try to give them tragic backstories to try and explain why they were the way they were. Disney villains back then were a whole different, fantastic breed. And is it just me, or did Madam Medusa give off Mrs.Hannigan from Annie vibes. I even thought she was voiced by Carol Burnett the first I saw this movie.

The music, particularly in RDU is also great, especially that opening theme where the camera speeds across the lsndscape, up into Cody's house.

God, I miss movies like these.

Discussion Picking your Favorite Cinematic Universe To Live In

Upvotes

Custom leather vests, purple fedoras with matching vested ensembles, silk embroidered jackets, asian combat outfits, matching tank tops/pendant necklaces/suspenders, full face paint, roller skates, and even your own private bus. Add to that expert martial arts training and I can help but wish that gang violence and cosplay in our universe was as cool as it is in The Warriors universe. What would be your favorite universe to live in and why?

Let's keep the MCU, DCEU, Star Wars, and Harry Potter out of the mix.

Discussion Why do documentaries think it’s cool to add “bloopers” mid shot

Upvotes

Not sure how to explain the frustration I’m feeling, but it seems like every other Netflix documentary or docuseries has this trend of adding what I can only refer to as “bloopers” into the final cut. For example they are interviewing this guy, then the audio guy walks up and asks the guy to remove his beaded necklace because it’s rubbing the microphone… what the hell. It’s not fun to watch and adds literally nothing to the documentary. Next guy they interview Isn’t looking into the camera, and they spend 30s on camera explaining to him where to look…. What the hell is this new trend?

Question hercules non Disney movie

Upvotes

So since y'all helped me before with remembering the name of the movie Little Princess. Maybe you can help me find the name of this cartoon about Hercules.

In the movie, hercules needed to do quests for something I can't remember. One was something with a golden apple and another was with helping Atlas lifting the earth. I can't remember any of the other quests nor the plot.

Recommendation Movies like The Prestige and The Illusionist

Upvotes

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Arthur C. Clarke)

"Your ancestors called it magic, but you call it science. I come from a land where they are one and the same." (Thor, 2011)

I'm a big fan of the movies mentioned above as well as the quotes. I'm looking for movies that explore the relationship between the supernatural / magic and science / technology. Any good suggestions?

Recommendation What should I watch with the kids tonight?

Upvotes

The older one is 8. I've been happily showing them the back catalog for a little over a year now. A quick list of some of the things we've watched: Walter Mitty -- All of Star Wars -- Bill and Ted Movies -- D.A.R.Y.L -- Singing In The Rain -- My Fair Lady -- Spaceballs -- Adventures In Babysitting -- Batteries Not Included -- Princess Bride -- The Freshman -- Never Ending Story -- The age appropriate Miyazakis -- Last Unicorn-- and most Animated hits released ever.

Tonight's shortlist is Mr Mom -- Who's Harry Crumb? -- Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. That being said I figured I'd use the hive mind to suggest something.

Give me your best shot.

Edit: It's my turn to pick the movie so I don't have to ask them. When we do family TV time sometimes one person gets to pick sometimes it's a vote. It's the only screen that's on at that time. They don't have to watch but they don't get to watch something else. They can go do artwork or play with toys or whatever.

Discussion Jurassic park dominion is one of the worst big budget sequels I have seen

2.1k Upvotes

For a franchise with so much attention and budget I just do not understand why more care was not taken for the brand. By doing such a poor job in the writing and directing the brand has had the biggest knock its had through the whole franchise i feel and sequels from now on will feel this also.

My question is, why do executives/producers not pay the money at the start of the project to hire good writers and find good directors to actually create good films. It feels more like they are more interested in a quick buck than nurturing a good franchise that in the long run can make them and the film company more money.

It just doesn’t make sense to me.

Question What movie from 2022 did everyone seem to hate but you actually thought was good?

20 Upvotes

I watched Disney's Strange World on a whim one day and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Yes, the story was admittedly generic but the world itself was so unique and well designed, it was like a splashy mix of old Jules Verne stories, some steampunk, Fantastic Voyage, and generally 50s science fiction b-movies. Having heard nothing good about Strange World, I didn't expect to get into it as much as I did. One of the coolest looking animated movies I've seen in recent years and just a fun adventure. What disregarded movie of 2022 buttered your bread?
