he said if you aren't a vegan you don't have much of a leg to stand on to say fucking animals is wrong, and he's got a point. animals get raped all the time in the milk industry, and also being killed is worse than being fucked, but we defend eating meat but don't condone fucking animals. however because the internet loves to blow things out of proportion they said he's a dog fucker as if you can't play devil's advocate anymore

Adam,
Most human beings have what is known as “instinct”. This funny little thing allows us to understand that certain things are good and bad. Now it doesn’t qualify everything, and not every instinct is good, but it benefits us in terms of survival. This is a part of a broader category known as epigenetics.

Most people know on an instinctual level that eating rotten food is bad. Now you can say there are actual scientific reasons why eating rotten food is bad, but even a child who doesn’t understand will know not to eat a rotting piece of food because it smells bad.

So when our instincts tell us that fucking dogs and cats is bad, your rhetoric means little to us because we know deep down that you must be missing a part of the human instinct that informs your behavior. Disease, danger, damage to your sexual organs, we all understand these risks on an innate level. If you don’t then you are clearly missing something inside of you.

I’m sorry you were raped by your stepdad or whatever. Or your mom rented out your boyhole to the local pedophile ring. But don’t take it out on us. Thanks.

>expect eating is essential for living and health
yes eating is but eating specifically meat isn't actually necessary and these days a lot of the meat people are eating is probably dangerous to their health
>plus it shows superiority in the food chain
irrelevant. we don't need to show cows or chickens how "powerful" we are, they aren't going to take us out if we show them any weakness
as for your second point, would you rather be killed or fucked? if you say killed, then fair enough I guess, but if you say fucked, then you understand where I'm coming from. yes you think it's gross, and I do to, but it ends up looking hypocritical if you think it's ok to kill but not ok to fuck.

I only remember one part of his "analysis" where he spent a good chunk of the review attributing some deep meaning to the way fucking letters fade out in the opening credits of the movie. IIRC somebody then pointed out it was nothing more than just some technical thing in the editing process, because of course it fucking was. That was embarrasing to watch.

Adam and pals.

I'm getting so sick of americans and their desire to get offended by every single portrayal of a minority that isn't glowing. It's the most banal shit to hear lefties upset because someone used the horrifically racist stereotype that a chinese restaurant as a place where chinese people eat at.

Pay attention and you'll notice how these reviewer types instantly call whatever they don't like racist. If the film is good though then it's a "fantastic critique and parody of real racism" like rlm talking about Indiana Jones and eating monkey brains or anybody talking about portrayals of Italians in mafia movies. If the film is bad and has a woman or minority in it the criticism instantly becomes "this is sexist. This is racist". It's so banal and boring once you notice it.
>>
>>120889331
no he said it was good but he said he wouldn't say if Adum was right or not because Kaufman doesn't answer questions about his movies (the exact same thing adum criticises lynch for). Somehow to Adum, Kaufman is epic and based and Lynch is cringe and pretentious.

The only people who take him seriously are people who don't think for themselves, they just listen to what YouTube man tells them to think. These threads are pretty redundant, but it's still fun to see how Adam gets butthurt by them. Adam, if your reading this, watch Birth of a Nation and Intolerance, then reconsider what you said about Citizen Kane. Kane is a great film, but it's not innovative in the way you think it is
>>
>>120895580
There are many films before Citizen Kane that prove him completely wrong.

That's true, but most of what he said about Kane is actually true for either Birth of a Nation or Intolerance
>>
>>120890144
A, the author is dead. 2, if a writer goes on to actually describe something, then 9 times out of 10 it's for a reason. It could for a symbolic reason like color representing an emotion (although that's more of a thing in the visual arts, like film and painting), or it could be for a formal reason as in it adds to the story in some way.

I guess he did say it in an unscripted conversation but even then, he could have either kept his mouth shut or said "I think it was the first to introduce the basic plot structure we're so used to now but don't quote me on that". It would have still been stupid and uninformed, but less sp

He's obviously saying that the movie focuses too much on it and either neglects or sacrifices other aspect of filmmaking to show "pretty pictures", anon. Not picking up implied information is a sign of autism.
>>
>>120899926
The writing was standard in terms of plotting and characterization until the ending, where it subverted the "chosen one" trope. And a lot of it did have a ton of intertexual and symbolic significance, which isn't something you see in capeshit
>>
>>120899997
Isn’t the point of cinematography to communicate the films themes? At least that’s the point of good cinematography.

he could also have checked those digits

I like to check Adum's imdb especially now when he's at TIFF to get a rough idea for upcoming movies but i've noticed he seems to give an extra point or 2 to festival contenders, it seems really out of place to some movies have top scores when they are of similar quality to other releases in the year

Of course he's parroting. He's never even seen Citizen Kane.

I'm not overly familiar with the themes of the film but isn't one of the main themes social isolation, yes? so wouldn't that mean you could interpret wide desolate shots with Officer K as a small figure as representing him lost a dissociated from the vast modernised world that the film takes place in. That's just one off the top of my head at least according to your definition of substantive cinematography
>>
>>120900089
Being "standard" in terms of checking all the boxes of how you should structure a story doesn't make it good writing, and literally every writer in Hollywood is capable of writing a screenplay that does that. Intertextual and symbolic significance, as you'll notice once you leave college, means nothing and doesn't improve the quality of the writing at all. All film student movies would be great if that was the case.

Wasn’t the original anon ( the one that shitted on the film). I can’t speak on the film because I haven’t seen it yet.
>>
>>120900463
I agree that it wouldn't be impressive if it was simply standard, my point is that the "standard" plotting was used to achieve a non-standard end, with the hero NOT being pinocchio, and his AI gf NOT actually having a real personality. It's a reverse pinocchio story where everyone ends up seeming less real by the end than at the beginning. So it's original in that sense.
>Intertextual and symbolic significance... means nothing and doesn't improve the quality of the writing at all.
It meant something to me and a lot of other people here. So even if that sort of depth is superfluous to someone like you, that doesn't mean that other people aren't capable of enjoying it on that level.

The fact that the movie even invites this type of interpretation is already a pretty bad sign. Cinematography isn't meant to convey things not by raping your eyes with scenes that will make you hyper aware of what is going on. Movies that resort to that more than once or maybe twice have already fucked up, and Blade Runner fucks up even more by letting these scenes linger on for way too long. Taxi Driver also deals with isolation, and it's conveyed through lighting and framing as the story progresses naturally, instead of always bringing everything to a halt to shove 3 minutes of Travis walking alone poetically among the crowd or to show a long pretty sequence of New York looking menacing. These things require subtlety.

Again, who cares? Every retard who has just been recently made aware of plot structure and film tropes immediately thinks of ways to subvert them, break them, play with them, etc. Far from meaning the writing is good, it's usually a sign of an amateur filmmaker/writer, who is still too aware of these norms and approaches them too clinically instead of having internalized them. Not to say this is literally the case here obviously, just saying this is hardly is enough to make it good.

>It meant something to me and a lot of other people here
Usually, it means something only after you've been trained to pick it up, and having to resort to that is a pretty bad sign.
>>
>>120888261
Right place, right time.
He was able to jump on the review bangewagon at the right time. And his “le cynicism” persona and tearing apart stuff like Walking Dead and ASM separated him from other critics. He also had Doung Walker and IHE prop him up during the Cool Cat controversy.
>>
>>120901119
So? I'm not that guy. And to a degree he's right, it doesn't say anything that hasn't already been said, but that by itself doesnt make the pretty shots good or bad. They are annoying tho

How do you bring up the opinions of others to discredit a work if it got good reviews and people seemed to enjoy it? Evidently a lot of people cared, given its mostly positive reception. And it's not that subversion is good per se, it's when it's used to make a particular thematic point that it resonates. And 2049 clearly resonated.
>it means something only after you've been trained to pick it up, and having to resort to that is a pretty bad sign.

I'm not saying that popular equals good, what I'm saying is that you can't claim that something is dramatically ineffective by talking about how people react to it IF people reacted to it positively.
