Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Adam McKay's biopic

Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Adam McKay's biopic

Holy shit he has done it again.

YO WHAT THE FUCK

I dunno, but Sam Rockwell is playing George Bush and I'm excited to see that.

I don’t know what a biopic is, but with this cast it could be either powerfully factual or absolutely fucking hilarious.

Edit: Just googled biopic and it’s a biographical movie aka a bio pic... returning all of my higher ed degrees right now.

Quentin Tarantino on Wienstien: 'I knew enough to do more than I did'

Quentin Tarantino on Wienstien: 'I knew enough to do more than I did'

Tarantino will get flack for this but he’s being honest unlike a lot of Hollywood who are saying they had no idea.

“I chalked it up to a 50s-60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk,” he said. “As if that’s OK. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

Weinstein distributed all of Tarantino's movies and he's the one who decided to pick up the script for Pulp Fiction after other's turned it down for being "too demented." QT probably naturally felt indebted to him and was willing to look away a bit. Still doesn't make it right though.

“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip,” he said in the interview with the New York Times. “It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino said that he was aware of the settlement between Rose McGowan and Weinstein and that his then girlfriend Mira Sorvino told him about an incident involving Weinstein making unwelcome advances and touching.

“I couldn’t believe he would do that so openly. I was like: ‘Really? Really?’ But the thing I thought then, at the time, was that he was particularly hung up on Mira,” said Tarantino. “I thought Harvey was hung up on her in this Svengali kind of way. Because he was infatuated with her, he horribly crossed the line.”

Weinstein distributed Tarantino’s films from his debut Reservoir Dogs to his most recent, The Hateful Eight, and the director said his attitude to the rumours was initially dismissive. “I chalked it up to a 50s-60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk,” he said. “As if that’s OK. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

Thank you for being HONEST

‘Get Out’ Leads Nominations for 2017 Gotham Awards

Gotham Awards... really thats a thing?

Gotham has been a nickname for New York since before Batman existed

yes. it’s for independent cinema and the first ceremony for awards season

Sad to see that Get Out is currently going through the obligatory "overrated" phase on this sub. I think it's absolutely one of the five best movies this year.

The only other mind-boggling movies I've watched were the mainstream ones - 'Inception' 'Mulholland Drive' etc. Then watched these gems too, have any other recommendations?

Ahh, the rare gems of mind-fuck cinema, what a unique topic!

Moon.

how about le underrated gems coherence sir?

This is my favourite kind of movie by far, I've collected a fair list over the years do not read anything about these films or you will get spoiled. I still need ot watch Pi and i'll check out Mr nobody.

Mild

Moon (love the robot in this)

Predestination (this is fun in a group you will all figure it out at different times)

Dark City (make sure you watch the directors cut not the cinematic one with the voice over that spooils the whole movie)

Time crimes

Donnie darko

Time lapse (most original take on time shenanigans IMO)

Moderate

Primer (the time travel film)

Paprica (This film inspired inception, Nolan's work is a toned down run at the concept)

Synchronicity (This film almost plays on the fact you have seen other films on this list)

Coherence (There is nothing even similar to this)

Utter and total mindfucks

Triangle (2009) (this is the only one that made me lose sleep)

Upstream colour (i still haven't figured this out)

Triangle and Coherence are both great films. Both worthy of repeated rewatches.

I don't know how well PI has aged but I first saw it in the 90s and will never it. Great film.

How David Fincher Hijacks Your Eyes

How David Fincher Hijacks Your Eyes

I agree that Fincher's style is unique and instantly recognisable but I've never experienced the sensation of seeing things in real life like a Fincher movie.

I will say Mindhunter is worth a watch.

I really enjoyed its effect in the scene from Se7en around 3:20.

The Camera is mirroring Brad Pitt as he is coming down the stairs until he stops, and then he rocks back slightly and the camera didn't follow him, and I automatically switched focused to Morgan Freeman, and the camera switches to focus on his movement as he goes to leave the room.

Edit: spelling

He uses panning, tracking shots, and tilts.

Ok, nerdwriter. Ok.

It's pretty funny that Nerdwriter uploads a video on David Fincher cause I was binging video essays about his work earlier today. For those who wanna check any of them out here's:

Elijah Wood: 'Hollywood in the grip of child abuse scandal similar to Jimmy Savile' -May 22, 2016

Elijah Wood: 'Hollywood in the grip of child abuse scandal similar to Jimmy Savile' -May 22, 2016
Elijah Wood: 'Hollywood in the grip of child abuse scandal similar to Jimmy Savile' -May 22, 2016

For those not aware, Jim Savile was a British children's entertainer who hosted a show on the BBC called Jim'll Fix It. The idea was that kids could write to the show with stuff they wanted or wanted to happen (for instance, one kid wanted to meet Colin Baker/be in a Doctor Who story) and Jim would pick a few requests and grant, or "fix", them. However, Jim was also notorious for sexually abusing the children he had on his show, which was only really brought to light after his death.

https://youtu.be/CEZH2rmk11c

Tragically, it was an open secret - if you look around on YouTube, you can see Saville signing off on an episode of "Top of the Pops," surrounded by kids, and you can see the girl jumping and squirming (it's not graphic, but probably NSFW)

Edit: I just realised, they cut to a closeup of him - probably because they knew what he was doing. Barf.

Even if it means the collapse of Hollywood, these predators need to be brought to light. No more open secrets, bring on some prosecution.

It will not be the collapse of Hollywood.

Reese Witherspoon alleges sexual assault by director when she was 16

Reese Witherspoon alleges sexual assault by director when she was 16

This is going to be like the steroid era in baseball where a lot of people are suspicious in hindsight. Except instead of one period of time after steroids were introduced, it's the whole history of the entertainment industry.

Just ugly all around. But it has to be dealt with instead of ignored.

I truly hope this brings down other predators in the industry. I hope it's not something that goes away after a week. So many people have been effected by these a holes, and it would be great if the victims got some justice.

You just provided a list of at least four people who definitely DIDN'T sexually assault Reese Witherspoon, but in the guise of "may have sexually assaulted Reese Witherspoon."

So you missed the stories on Terry Crews, James Van Der Beek, and Corey Feldman then?

Ron Howard reveals Han Solo standalone is called "SOLO - A Star Wars Story"

Ron Howard reveals Han Solo standalone is called "SOLO - A Star Wars Story"

"A movie about Han Solo. We need a name. How about 'Solo?'"

"...no, let's try to top that"

Ron Howard: They never did.

I hope that Han Solo movie reveals his real name is Jonny Star Wars and that's why the series is called Star Wars.

Im sorry Ron Hoawrd you just can't get me excited for this film

still buys opening night ticket and dresses in all Star Wars apparell they own

In Pixar's Ratatouille, Anton Ego loved Remy's cooking so much because Remy lived in Ego's mother house and learned to cook by watching her.

My friend told me about this theory and I had to find out for sure. Some of the detail numbering is off because I noticed more similarities in the pictures after I labeled them.

Arguments can be made that the orientation of the stove top ventilator, as well as the fireplace next to the door, being incorrect can be made. However, considering that this is Pixar, I'm inclined to say that these have some kind of purpose as opposed to just being a filler prop.

I have to disagree because I believe these are simply reused assets. This is a very popular practice with 3D films as creating new assets from scratch is very time consuming and expensive. Pixar is also quite well known to reuse assets and have been found to interchange assets from different movies like that toy story pizza truck. Disney has reused animation cels as well and have rotoscoped a few scenes to ease up on making fresh animations.

Also, it’s already established in the film that Remy is learning how to cook from the chef on the tv and idolises him to a degree that he becomes an imaginary friend. He would be able to correlate the cooking on the screen if the person watching cooked along with the program and he’d smell and taste the finished product.

well reasoned, the fireplace is in different locations, but man it would be a huge coincidence if one of the animators didnt think this theory was canon
