Ok Screened. I've waited long enough. Let's settle this once and for all, best living actor; Kurt Russel or Nic Cage!?
Hey guys. After just seeing The Grey, I was flat-out amazed by the intense plane crash sequence at the beginning of the movie, so I wanted to know what some of your favorite "crash's" have been in past film's. Another one that comes to mind is the train crash in Super 8.
Thanks guys and always be Screening.
On Saturday I went to an afternoon screening of 'The Grey' and there was a woman there with a little girl I'd say was between 18 and 24 months old. I can not begin to image what the hell this person was thinking. So we, the audience, got to enjoy hearing this little girl talking and crying during the move. Whats the worst case of egregious parenting you've ever seen at a movie theater- and do you think theaters should ban children under a certain age in all R movies whether or not they are with their parents?
after seeing extremely loud and incredibly close (a movie that alex clearly hated) get nominated for the oscars, i thought of the following question: were there any other movies that were nominated for the oscars that you absolutely hated (that you can remember)? thanks
With the recent Oscar nominations just being released, I had a question for you guys. What was the voting process for Best Picture this year? What happened to picking 10 Best Picture nominations like they had the previous few years? Was it that people didn't care for that large a number? Nine seems like an arbitrary number to me as it seems like they could have picked one more movie. Thoughts? Thanks and keep up the good work!
What role do you think expectations play in one's enjoyment of film? I recently saw Attack The Block while I thought it was pretty good it wasn't quite what I was expecting after hearing it hyped up by various sources. Do you think reviews may have an adverse effect on the viewing public?
Also, what are your favorite horror scenes taking place in the day? Usually the first rule of horror is to keep things in the dark but a truly skilled director can make the light just as scary. I recently saw PA3 and both of my favorite scenes took place in broad daylight, the Bloody Mary scene and the little girl running into Toby.
What is the last memorable film score you can think of besides Drive? Mine is Carter Burwell's A Serious Man soundtrack. It caught my attention immediately because of it's atypical composition and because it stood out from the crowd of bombastic, over the top, Michael Bay-like soundtracks that most movies rely on today.
