"wow"


  

          

On the right day, that could be my top five directors.

Fellini - I understand some are allergic to his later self-indulgence. Have you seen La Strada? I Vitelloni?

Kubrick - The Killing? Dr. Strangelove? Paths of Glory?

Pasolini - Decameron?

Hsiao-hsien Hou (even if Flowers of Shanghai is pretty) - If you don't like FoS, I don't know where to start.

Abbas Kiarostami - And Life Goes On?

80. "they're all too fixated on artifice"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Their films try desperatley to comment upon the world and humanity when they're hopelessly divirced from any relatable sense of reality. They're all cold, pompous and cynical (I suppose Fellini is an exception but his exuberance is terribly contrived and flimsy).

I do like The Killing and Strangelove, but that's as far as my appreciation of Kubrick goes.

...Kiarostami and Fellini as artificial, then everyone is artificial.

But, I guess we'll agree to disagree. All five of those guys have been powerful, emotional influences on me. It's hard for me to imagine any of them (much less all of them) as charlatans.

What did you think of Hou's "Time To Live and A Time To Die" and "Dust In The Wind"? I don't think of them as cold. "Summer At Grandpa's" is pretty warm and fuzzy (probably his most conventional film).

Could you expound on Hou's outlook as divorced from any relatable sense of reality? Right now, I don't see what you mean. He captures the mundane more than most filmmakers. His characters are concerned w/ livelihood (leaving to find jobs, dealing w/ illness, finding love, etc.).

I'm looking at Hou's middle period - after his first 4 works (which he's disowned) and before "Good Men and Good Women."

I can see how his long shots and long takes may seem like an artifice in light of dominant modes of style...in a sense of trying too hard to be different, but all that grew out of practical and technical concerns like not wanting to shoot coverage because of the use of non-professional actors; thus, the single takes.

In response to Reply # 124


          

Fair enough.

There is value in the mundane. Plus, it's not like that's the focus of his films....Taiwan's history and present are. It's not like he shows people eating w/o discussing something of central importance to driving the narrative forward.

>And plenty of directors can use non-actors without resorting

>interest happening.

I agree somewhat. There are vast examples of which you are speaking of, but easing improvisation and minimizing continuity/match-on-action errors are not the only reason why Hou uses long shots and takes.

And on the other hand, what would be worse is using various angles and camera distance and height just to enhance attention even when nothing interesting is happening. Or using diegetic and/or non-diegetic music just to liven things up.

The long shot has value because it provides context for the characters. You also have the group emphasis. "The Last Supper" painted as a gallery of 2 or 4 person compositions give off a different feeling than a composition of all 13.

Dynamism w/i the frame can do just as much as dynamism b/w shots. Hou employs blocking that gives us clues when to look and where. Same stuff that changing angles and distance do. Character blocking is a lost art...its vital to mise-en-scene.

Long takes have a certain tension to them.

I welcome any style of shooting, really.

In response to Reply # 5


          

But I think a lot of people might agree with you.

Honestly aside from the few of us that dig the movie, the only part that really goes uncriticized in that movie is the Christopher Walken/Dennis Hopper scene, which is usually confirmed as 'classic', whatever that means anymore.

But yeah, okay, after all this time I will admit that Tarantino would have made a better movie if he had control instead of Tony Scott.

Only I will say that I doubt that I would have cared about some of the characters a lot less, because almost as a rule I never really care about the characters in Tarantino's movies.

Yeah I still like the movie but...sadly, you're probably right.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've always thought that at best Memento was merely competent and not the rebirth/retelling of noir that some people seem to think it is. The scriptwriting is mediocre, there are only two good performances, and the plot device, the movie's biggest draw, got old to me. In short, the idea is an interesting one, but there's not enough movie to hang it on.

In response to Reply # 127


  

          

If you give a writer that gimmick -- a guy with memory loss trying to solve a crime, each scene goes a little further back and unveils something new -- you're going to end up with a similar product every time.

Once you get over that clever idea, the cinematography and setting are painfully boring, the acting is passing, the dialogue is fair, the pacing drags in sections, and the philisophical "point" which is reached at the end is trite to say the least.

130. "but that's two ideas"
In response to Reply # 129


  

          

what they really did is take the basic idea - memory loss
and then figure out how to make the audience empathize the character - play the scenes in reverse order
which is the really clever part, very good filmmaking
if you like, the cinematography/editing is one long gripping psychological hitchcockian perspective device

but they also came up with lots of other good ideas for scenes using the concepts, and visual motifs and memorable images

AND they had to come up with a story that somehow built tension towards the beginning, it's not just any old story

these sorts of film should not be discouraged in favour of some 'interesting cinemetography' and useless philosophy bullcrap. is Die Hard a good film? yes. Did it come to a profound philosophical conclusion? no. Does it matter? no, because you accept the film on its own terms of what it's trying to achieve

I was really bored with it by the end the first time, and then some friends said, "Hey, let's go see Memento!" and I said, "Sure, maybe I missed something the first time because it seemed like it should be good!" and then I had the same bored, frustrated feeling at the end.

It's not that it's exceptionally horrible or anything, it's just that once you get over the gimmick it's extremely unremarkable, and actually crappy in some respects. All those things you point out? The POV and Hitchcock-ian stuff? I don't consider that all too remarkable any more. Any film school student worth getting their degree should be able to do something like that.

And then my reaction to it got even more negative the more I heard people talk it up like this hallmark entry in contemporary cinema, I won't deny that.

And oh yeah, it also doesn't help that Christopher Nolan minus a clever story has been relatively run-of-the-mill in his two successive films.

so if the central concept is so easy to come up with, how come no one's done it before?

...but after that there's not much to get excited about. And correct me if I'm wrong, it was a concept that he and his brother came up with together, right? His brother wrote a short story using the concept and he made the movie, right? So it's not like the concept belongs entirely to him, either.

And yeah -- I'm sticking to it, the movie really falls off once you get over the novelty of the concept. And yes, making a movie stick entirely with one character and entirely with one POV shouldn't be that difficult for any self-respecting film student. Just watch Rear Window a ton and then go make your movie. I'm goddamn serious about that.

two things here

1. I doesn't really matter if his brother wrote the story to start with... i'm not one of these idiots that thinks the director is the be all and end all, every film starts with a script or at least a concept.

2. no the perspective device IS the concept of showing the scenes in reverse order. That's what lets the audience identify with the main character's amnesia. I don't know wtf you thought i meant

and the gimmick LASTS the entire film, i don't see how you get over it

Rear Window... great film... uninteresting story (i mean, nothing much by itself) ... interesting concept and filming technique
Memento... same thing

There just wasn't enough "other" stuff in the film that kept me really engaged. At first it was exciting watching how the story unfolded backward, but by the time it was getting toward the end nothing else had popped up that really grabbed my attention. I distinctly remember both times watching it just desperately wanting it to end and feeling relieved to be able to finally leave the theater.

>Rear Window... great film... uninteresting story (i mean,
>nothing much by itself) ... interesting concept and filming

>Memento... same thing

Cool, I can pretty much agree with this, although I'm going to personally rate Rear Window higher because (1) I never get tired of watching Jimmy Stewart. I could watch him read the back of a frozen pizza and be entertained. (2) Grace Kelly is gorgeous. (3) It was the first movie to really fully utilize the technique.

I've just heard some pretty over-the-top declarations of how fantastic Memento is, whereas I think it's a good movie, just not a revolution or instant classic or anything.

Batman Begin was not your typical comic book movie & was 1 of the best films of 2005. And he got great performances out of Robin Williams & Al Pacino in Insomnia. I still dont understand why that remake gets hated on so much. But I'm sure you & a few others can enlighten me

Batman Begins not being your typical comic book movie had more to do with the script and story than the directing. I heard rumors that I'm pretty certain are 100% true that originally Darren Aranofsky and Frank Miller were working on making Year One (or whatever his book is called) but Aranofsky got dropped because he wasn't commercial enough.

Anyway, the actual direction -- cinematography, mis-en-scene, performace, style, etc. -- is pretty unremarkable. Again, it benefits from having an interesting script but is otherwise pretty much directing-by-the-numbers.

And have you seen the original Insomnia? Honestly I heard how the remake ends and decided to skip it, although part of me morbidly wants to watch it just to see how bad it is. I have heard from my *one* friend whose movie opinion I take seriously, though, that the direction was pretty mediocre.

Were you the one who was complaining that Nolan was getting/taking 2 much credit 4 it's success?

I'm not sure the reason why that project never took off. I was very interested in it tho

We're talking about Batman Begins & not Fantastic Four right?

Again, it

Interesting opinion

Most of it

Honestly I heard how

>morbidly wants to watch it just to see how bad it is. I have
>heard from my *one* friend whose movie opinion I take
>seriously, though, that the direction was pretty mediocre.

I've seen all of Nolan's movies & I think he's a great director cuz of the way he displays the mood of the film. In Insomnia I really got a feeling for Pacino's character & situation. Same w/ Pearce in Memento & Bale in BB. Other directors just throw it out there & hope the audience takes it for granite. I think Nolan does a wonderful job of driving it home w/o being too overbearing & hitting the audience over the head w/ the "MESSAGE!" But hey, if it doesnt work for you then to each his own.

Nah, I wasn't in any Batman Begins discussions on this board. I didn't even watch it until a couple of months ago. He's a safe director and all and he hands in watchable movies, no doubt, I just don't necessarily rate him as an auteur of any real merit.

>I'm not sure the reason why that project never took off. I was
>very interested in it tho

I'm pretty certain it's because the studios want Batman to remain a blockbuster franchise and they didn't care to see their ass-kicking, mini-tank driving, all-black wearing, hot-chick banging super stud get the arthouse treatment. I think it's kind of obvious that at least some of their groundwork found its way into Batman Begins, what with the big psychological emphasais and all.

I suppose I could watch his movies again more closely, but it's probably safe to say that he's not my style. I think of him as a Brian Singer type -- happened into one good movie, proceeded to work a productive if not entirely revolutionary career from that point on.

A script Nolan co-wrote with David Goyer. Aronofsky was going to do a Batman film but it wasn't as if they used his script.

Did it get old because it was hard to follow & remember what happened? If so, that was Nolan's intention in telling the story that way. To put the viewer in Lenny's shoes & see things from his perspective. Guess it wasnt effective for some. I thought it was brilliant! (Ironically, my buddy & I snuck a sixer of Guinness into the theater the 1st time I saw it)

In short, the idea is an

Huge cosign. I had to write a paper on this movie for my biosychology class when I was in school and I wanted to slit my wrists during the process because I had to keep going back into the movie to watch certain parts and what not. I really did not enjoy this movie.

Sideways should have won for Best Picture for 2004.

Although I was rooting for Marty, Sideways was clearly the better movie. But M$B sucked royally.

I dunno that I'd wanna sit through The Aviator again either. Million Dollar Baby was showing on a plane I was on a few months ago, I had no problem watching it then, but I dunno if I'd stay with it on TV, necessarily.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

But I think a big part of that is because it's such a lighter piece.

I was in the opposite camp I guess in that I didn't like Million Dollar Baby at first, but a second viewing won me over. But it's not a movie I see myself going back to very often.

As for the Aviator, I admire what Scorsese was trying to do, but it's just too long. It's a 160 minute movie that feels like it's twice that length.

Every character in that movie is a grade-A stereotype.

I mean, they even have the white trash mom sucking the tit of the government stealing from her daughter. Seriously.

The acting is good in it. I can't take away from Hilary Swank in that movie, who did the damn thing. And the filmmaking is good, the cinematography and what have you.

But man, I'm sorry. The story sucks. They suck you in the first time you see it with the big twist. But the writing is not good, at all (Paul Haggis writing only for stereotypes?? I'm SHOCKED). And I just can't get down for a film where every character is one you've seen a hundred times before.

American Graf and THX were cool DESPITE his directing, not BECAUSE of it

i'd say the same thing about Star Wars, even though a lot of that looks inept to me now, too.

i was always more into the cinematography than anything else, but even that doesn't make me wanna watch it now. i'd rather just look at the books of Christopher Doyle's photos from the film.

i can't bring myself to sit through Kill Bill Vol. 2 right now, but i watch Vol. 1 from beginning to end every time it's on cable... which is a lot.

Vol. 1 held up pretty well the 1st couple of times but now I'm tired of it. I never liked Vol. 2 & it didnt get any better on a 2nd viewing.

>I haven't watched hero in a couple years

Hero is still in the Memento category for me. Seen it over a dozen times & still love it.

Actually if you've seen a lot of that era's cult cinema (not just "Thriller: A Cruel Picture") the "Kill Bill" movies become a dull derivative game of spot the homages.

the village was a very good movie -- the cinematography, score, acting and overall mood were fantastic -- but m. night could not have dug himself into a deeper rut. he brought 95% of the criticism on himself by making four straight movies with twist endings. so everyone went into the village with the wrong frame of mind, which turned out to be the right frame of mind for guessing the ending, but the wrong one for enjoying the film for what it was.

The only way that movie wouldn't have been terrible is if the aliens would've came out of the screen, "twist"ed me up a J, gave me a coupon 4 a free DVD rental, & apologized 4 the time I wasted watching it.

It's like someone said above, everyone was so busy falling over themselves to claim credit for "guessing the surprise" that they forgot the watch the movie.

And that was Bryce Dallas Howard's coming out party. She was great.

but if you guessed 'the twist' in The Village, i'm going to have to ask you which twist
- that the hero gets taken out early on (j phoenix character gets stabbed)
- that the monsters are villagers?
- that there are also REAL monsters?
- that there aren't... it was just Noah?
- that it's set in modern day?
- that the Village was started by a group of damaged individuals, one of whom owns a nature reserve?

none of these is THE BIG TWIST, it twists throughout. If i had to pick one i'd say that the monsters were villagers - but lots happens after that anyway. The one about it being set in modern day isn't that big a deal if you went in trying to guess that sort of thing... in fact when i went into the film, i thought it was going to be OPENLY set in modern day, just in a non-modernized place... turned out it wasn't so i sat down and enjoyed the film and when the modern day twist DID come, it WAS a surprise because i'd been watching the film instead of glowering over it

33. "Stanley Kubrick is the greatest American film director of all-time"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

No one else was able to cross genres the way he did. No other director had his vision and was able to accomplish it (accomplish is key because otherwise we're in Terry Gilliam territory). No one else made the kind of timeless classic films that he did over so many decades, from a great film in the 50's to another in the 80's.

You say his movies were cold, I say that's the point.

He very well may have been batshit insane (all accounts indicate he absolutely was), but when it comes to making a movie, he sons all of your favorites.

What's funny is that when people talk about how much he sucks, they always reference how annoying his fans are. "Oh they say he's so great I HATE HIM!". This argument makes as much sense when people over in The Lesson use it to say why a certain artists fanbase makes them hate him.

The two have nothing to do with each other.

Are his fans rabid? Sure. But Quentin Tarantino's aren't? Shit, QT's diehards make whatever Kubrick fans there are look tame with the way they put this man on a pedastal. However, my annoyance with them doesn't make me think Pulp Fiction sucks or Reservoir Dogs wasn't a tremendous film.

And Eyes Wide Shut didn't suck you bastards.

i'm a big Kubrick fan myself.

Bottom line: He made one of the best comedies of all time, the best horror movie of all time, and the best sci fi movie of all time, with a handful of other solid movies.

39. "I like his level of output."
In response to Reply # 33


  

          

Which is to say, his almost complete dearth of it. Critics often point to the fact that he didn't complete many pictures during his life, but to them I say: "I'll take seven or eight very strong works over a lifetime compared to 40 middling ones and a few flashes of brilliance (*cough* *cough* Altman *cough*)".

Bottom line: except for his last movie, which won't be mentioned here, I can hardly think of a director whose work I enjoy more overall.

Reminds me of sitting in a class once when someone called A Clockwork Orange, a horrible, overrated movie. I thought the Kubrick riders we're gonna jump him, as heated and loud as they got lol. Some of those cats act like he was the only director making films before 1970. and hell, i'll admit that there have been a couple occasions where Kubrick fans have annoyed me to the point of thinking STFU about Kubrick already... fuck him. it's just human nature really... just a reaction at the time. It never really made me like his films any less though. I don't think he's the greatest ever but possibly top 10.

And 2001 bores the living shit out of me. But I won't deny it's a masterpiece.

42. "Woody Allen's recent films did not all suck"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This seems to be a popular opinion when people are praising Match Point (which I still have yet to see). "This will make you forget all the shit he's done in the last 10-15 years."

I say that's wrong.

Match Point may be his best film in that period for all I know, and it's certainly a shift as far as the kind of movie he usually makes, but I will not go along with the fact that he hasn't made a good piece in as long as so many others seem to think.

Both Bullets Over Broadway and Manhattan Murder Mystery are among my favorite movies of the 90's. I can still watch either tomorrow and enjoy them as much as I did the first time I saw them, and I dare say they are as good as any other Woody picture made.

While I don't feel as strongly about the others, they're still not shit. All have redeeming values and are, overall, good films.

This isn't to say there haven't been some clunkers. Anything Else was hard to stomach. Everyone Says I Love You was not my cup of tea.

If you think he's "fallen off" from where he was in the 70's, with stuff like Annie, Manhattan, Take The Money & Run, I can't agree.

Are they as good? I think the two I mentioned above are, and will argue that with you all day if I have to, but even if we're to assume they're not, that's a mighty high standard to live up to, don't you think?

The fact he's still making so many movies of quality 30 years later is in itself something to be celebrated.

So don't be so hard on Woody, except when talking about his sick personal life. I won't come to his defence there.

50. "Jade Scorpion was formula"
In response to Reply # 49


  

          

And Helen Hunt stunk.

Hollywood Ending was only occasionally funny (Bogdanovich joke, Chinese guy, Woody grabbing tits) and often painful (the whole punk son subplot).

I love Woody. I think he's the best American director of the last 25 years. But his last five years have been bad. Match Point was great, but Scoop sounds a lot like Jade Scorpion Woody.

He is planning to make films in Barcelona and Paris after his London trilogy, so I have high hopes.

After I watched it I remember thinking, "It wasn't THAT bad" The reviews had shit on it quite a bit.

The one scene where someone tries to introduce Woody's character and the guy avoids looking at Woody and says "Yeah, he's the guy we're trying to sue..." It's not the exact quote but I laughed heartily afterward. Watched that part a couple of times.

other than that, I haven't felt much need to see his more recent efforts, and the ones I have seen (Mighty Aphrodite, Everyone Says I Love You, Deconstructing Harry) have been pretty weak. I do like Bullets Over Broadway though.

I think this is one of those movies that nobody saw, they read in the papers that it lost a great deal of money and that the critics weren't crazy about it, and they all said, "Man, that movie bombed. What a piece of shit."

Mystery Men is great. I gave it to my brother on DVD for Christmas. Nothing is fucking with The Sphinx. NOTHING.

Fuck it, I'm gonna do an appreciation post soon if I see people decry this comment.

I saw it once, convinced myself that it was still pretty funny, saw it a second time and was disabused of that notion. It has some funny spots, but I don't like Janeane Garofolo, and for all the talent involved it should've been waaaaaay better. I did like the Sphinx though.

they tried to shove in a bunch of serious moments thatw as just AWFUL.

When that girl tells ben stiller he has anger managment problems. When the invisible dude ACTUALLY turns invisible! And I seem to remember something with the shoveler.

That said, it was a GREAT concept, and the Goddie Mob part was brilliant (of course in salem OR, I was the ONLY one in the theater that laughed).

Exactly, I don't see how someone can watch Shoveler say "God gave me a gift: I shovel well" and see it as a serious moment.

It's a cool, violent action movie. Takes place in Boston and I'm a sucker for tattooed dudes with violent tendencies.

It may not pass the test as a "good" movie, but I don't give a shit. Plus, I love the praying and the latin and the tourette's.

Maybe someone else does as well....it's just that I've seen zero copy about either to know.

-Tim "The Toolman" Taylor never really improved much of anything on Home Improvement

-Two and a Half Men does not have any midgets

-Full House didn't really depict a Full House because they kept adding people. Granny Tanny stayed there. Then they got a dog. Then Becky moved in. Then they had the twins. I think Cousin Stavros stayed with them for a little bit. I have to assume that Vicky spent some nights there too while her and Danny were together. Exactly when the fuck was that house full?

.....the break didn't happen within three months?

That's like getting mad because the Lost or Gilligan's Island castaways hadn't been rescued in the first season.

It's not a feature film or some cable show...it's an hour drama on broadcast television, and at that, a series that was never said to be limited.

While what went down in November pissed me off as well, obviously there's more to it. And Fox made us wait four months (which is kinda gay for an over-the-air network to do, but I'll live) because of it.

If nothing happens by the spring finale, THEN you can hate...

add-on: To 40thStreetBlack, were you simply itching for a show to drop because the list of what you follow was too packed?

132. "crash failed for the same reasons why pulp fiction was great"
In response to Reply # 90


  

          

the "connections" and "coincidences" in crash were forced and contrived as hell. for example: the same cop who felt thandie newton up is now first on the scene of her car accident? that kind of "facts of life" writing is why paul haggis was writing for the facts of life twenty years ago and was also the creative brains behind walker, texas ranger.

in contrast, the way the stories in pulp fiction wove in and out of each other was near flawlessly executed.

In response to Reply # 115


  

          

Many people think Happy Days started to truly suck when Fonzie was waterskiing and literally jumped over a shark.

So you could say something along the lines of..."The Cosby Show jumped the shark when they introduced Olivia."

But propaganda implies some sort of active agenda and some sort of coherent message. If you can get either from Temple, I'd be mightily impressed.

I'm personally fascinated by Temple. In many ways, it is the heart of both Lucas and Spielberg's careers. It reveals huge amounts about them.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          


And since the post title says "discuss" and not "list", please someone engage me in why those two movies are so regularly seen, around here, as evidence of the Coens "falling off".

I would rank The Ladykillers as one of their better works. The performances, the set design, OF COURSE the dialogue, and the wonderful symbolism mad this a serious "repeat viewing" choice for me.

((I'd love to rank the Coens' films but I find it impossible. The only thing I could say is that Fargo would always be first and The Hudsucker Proxy would always be last))

IC, admittedly I've seen 1-1/2 times and it wasn't recently, was an absurdist, genre-blending, almost wholy reinventive, adult comedy that worked on every single level for me.

I liked it up until that speech he gives @ the hotel. Starts fallin off after that. The hitman w/ asthma helped pick it back up a little bit tho. And Billy Bob kills it in limited screen time.

If a movie sucks after 15 minutes....

It's still going to suck after 30....

...and 60....

....and 90....

....and 120....

...and so on....


And poker has no place on television.

A movie can start out great for 15 minutes, or even an hour, and then start to absolutely suck, and it severely effects it's overall quality, e.g. "A.I."

Given this, movie can start off bad and then eventually right itself and end up pretty damn good.

Of course, this doesn't take away from the fact that Napoleon Dynamite is indeed crap.



Oh, and poker on TV is great and more entertaining than most televised college football games and Fox baseball coverage.

Nope. Started good, got better, then sucked.

Off the top? The Last Dragon. Yeah I said it. If you can't appreciate the greatness that is Sho Nuff, this conversation is pointless.

Three things:

1. College football is often painful to watch, outside of the USC v. Notre Dame game and the Vince Young vs. USC game.

2. Fox's baseball coverage absolutely blows goats. Speaking as someone that actually LIKES watching baseball on TV, Fox makes the Play-offs and the Word Series a damn near unwatchable expereince. And yet, somehow ESPN manages to be even worse on a weekly basis.

3. I'm sorry you and your husband are having marital problems. A therapist would probably suggest that you should start asking him for a reach-around after he's done.

247. "Scorcese's work can often look jarringly amateurish"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

for instance, his signature zoom-in while panning shot looks rubbish

other time he just throws up a painting or a piece of music or something like that and acts like that will do. what i mean is, relying on material from other artforms and circumventing the artform of filmmaking. sometimes i think, 'the music is better than you're film' and other times 'i'm not enjoying the music enough to justify this scene, but there's nothing else.' Even massive budget stuff like Gangs of New York, the quality of the set itself didn't really convince me that it was a real world.

~ The voice over narration was overwrought
and heavy handed (and i don't generally
dislike narration)

~ The fight scenes were indulgent and too
long

~ Take away the fight scenes (as with KB2)
and the movie got boring...

the whole thing would have worked much better
as a tightly edited single movie...

259. "Comics should go back to newsprint."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This probably could have been a separate post, but I simply think comics would have stayed cheaper, regardless of inflation, if they didn't all feel this need to move up to glossy paper.

Charging the price of your average magazine for a book that's still only 32 pages at the end of the day (with 23 pages of story) is simply bonkers, plus it takes the kids out of the game.

Besides, I felt there was more soul to cracking open the glossy cover to read the story on newsprint.

While we're at it, computer lettering and overly fabulous coloring can go too.

272. "Making new threads for each episode of a series is kinda gay."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Why does Lost for example need to have a new thread for each episode? We were just fine in season one with a season thread.

Is Lost (oer 24, for that matter) that much more special than The Shield, Smallville, or Nip/Tuck?

Is it because a show like Lost begs the readership of OKP to wax a whole lot nerdier about it? Or is it possibly the GD influence?

I just don't like the idea. At least the season threads are archivable.
