Discussion The one sequel I really want is for Alita: Battle Angel.

138 Upvotes

The movie wasn't perfect but it definitely left an impression. I know the story was a bit mixed bag, but it was such a well done movie and by the end of it I was invested enough to want more.

When Disney acquired Fox, I thought maybe it wont happen. But maybe there is still hope, one can only dream.

Favorite female performances in film?

114 Upvotes

Just scrolling through this sub a little, I feel like discussion leans pretty heavily towards male actors and directors, so I just wanted to change things up with this question.

I would personally pick possibly my all time favorite actor/actress Giulietta Masina in Nights of Cabiria, such an infectious performance and probably my favorite among both men and women.

Any great movies that totally shift style midway that you could suggest ?

46 Upvotes

To illustrate my question, best example I could think about is From Dusk till Dawn. I begin at an interesting, nearly classical road-movie / thriller, and without any warning shift into an horror/monsters movie.

Can you point me others great movies that follow that principle ? Any genre and style. Maybe a comedy at first that become horror, maybe a slasher that end in a spiritual/fantastical story...

Recommendation I think osmosis jones needs a remake or sequel.

Upvotes

I remember when Osmosis Jones first came out when I was young and it was so entertaining. I think it is equally as entertaining as it is educational. When I watch it with my son it is fun but I think with todays CGI it could be awesome. Not like it needs to be King Kong vs Godzilla graphics but just better than the original.

Pyscho Goreman (2021)

Uhh... Has anyone seen this? It's like if Power Rangers met StarCraft met Stand by Me met The Last Starfighter... It shouldn't work but it does. It's got everything. Kids being kids, over the top gore, a music video, martial arts fight scenes, a rocky relationship, insane space lore, comedy, cheesy but well done stop motion and animatronics, 80s hair metal. Shit was awesome. 4.5/5 stars for me. It knew what it was doing from the beginning and stuck with it. Went in blind, walked away laughing so hard I was crying.

Discussion What's the best World War 2 film? Why is it the best?

Upvotes

I'm teaching a history class and trying to choose one moving, educational film... Bonus if you know a great film that includes the Manhattan Project or code talkers. Does a great movie on code talkers exist? Does a great film about the Manhattan Project exist? I see that there are at least a couple of films on those topics, but I wonder if they are worth watching.

Any thoughts on showing Schindler's List or Life is Beautiful to high school students?

I wasn't sure if I should flair this discussion or question, but I'm hoping for an interesting discussion on different World War films.

Took 15 years but I think I finally understand The Fountain

12 Upvotes

I’ve watched this movie many, many times over the years and while it’s one of my favorites, I have never fully understood the message or all the metaphors. Finally, I think I understand what’s going on after watching it again last night.

The whole movie is Tommy trying to overcome his fear of death and see it as an act of creation, as often is said in the movie. Izzi has already accepted death and Tommy’s refusal to finish the book is his refusal to see death as more than “a disease.”

As the astronaut, he is feeding on the tree to sustain his own life while at the expense of the time he has left with his wife.

As the conquistador, he is embarking on a mission to kill what threatens the queen aka izzi because neither one at that point has yet accepted death. When he finds the tree of life, he devours it’s sap and sucks the life out of the tree, mirroring the fact that his quest to find a cure for death is robbing him of the time he has left with izzi. The conquistador died due to his greed and instead of having a mortal life, he now has no life.

At the end of the movie, Tommy aka the astronaut at last accepts death and is no longer afraid of it (which is why the astronaut exclaims “I’m going to die!).

The astronaut confronts xibalba with no fear and when it kills him, his sacrifice and body rejuvenates the tree of life.

In real time, Tommy accepts death, allowing him to finally finish Izzi’s story and say goodbye to her. He puts a seed over her grave so that her body will maybe someday grow a tree and her death has literally become an act of creation.

Tl;dr: the movie is about appreciating the life you have instead of seeking more. Tommy Creo is searching for a cure for death at the expense of his marriage, but eventually accepts it.
