Tiptoes was almost this. Gary Oldman plays the dwarf twin brother of Matthew McConaughey, and Peter Dinklage is in it as Gary Oldman's best friend.

380 minute cut of "dude where's my car" when?


I dunno the Snyder cut seems like a gamble that can really pay off.
I hope he fixes the Diane lane /Amy Adams scenes, that poo poo was loving dire.

Only major injury on a Bay film that I know of was in a car crash in TF3, which is why stock footage from The Island (with robots added) appears instead of the planned shot.

Nolan's movies have plenty of action, though...?

Like, I do have to wonder how his stuff plays in a post-Marvel world (TDKR being kind of disliked and Dunkirk not really sticking in people's minds kind of makes me worry), but before Marvel pretty much set a new template for blockbusters his stuff did fine with kids.

Inception is remembered almost exclusively for its high concept and incredible action and effects, The Dark Knight became a phenomenon on the back of a single character, and teens and tweens loved 'em both. He ain't exactly Godard.

It's not exactly secret if you make a series of movies about it, which is why you shifted away from talking about them. Like, not even a specific allegation of "blatant bigotry".

It's like how Britney Spears called for a general strike, but also has songs with curse words in them (bitch, etc.). There was subsequently jokey speculation that the song Work Bitch is about the labor theory of value, which touches on the basic truth of the song's double meaning: both that getting superstar-fit is not at all effortless, and that that sort of lifestyle is pretty unobtainable to those who must sell their labor for 40 hours a week to survive. The basic tension of the song is in how it comes across as simultaneously inspirational and taunting.

It's a common anti-progressive tactic to try to sow division as you are doing: "don't you know Bay is a white man? Aren't you envious of his jet (?) ?" No; I have no particular desire to own a jet, or to stoke racial conflict as a distraction from class conflict. I'm interested in using popular culture as a vehicle to critique capitalism, and Bay's films are useful for that.

Many film directors are white, many are probably wealthy. Are you prepared to dismiss all 'white man" films this way? Or are you being duplicitous?

Even playing into the notion that nobody over 14 plays Fortnite (which ain't true), 2020 tweens aren't so fundamentally different from 2008 tweens that a big expensive action movie is somehow too highbrow for them.

There's something oddly sterile and detached about Nolan's action sequences. They never quite pull you in enough to involve you on a visceral level, but make you go "Well, this certainly is an expensive and technically proficient cinematic set-piece."

The DVD commentaries on Bay's movies will usually mention one or two near fatal accidents. There's a bit in the infamous Armageddon commentary where Bruce Willis mentions someone nearly died in the scene where the derrick goes out of control (which ends up being unintentionally hilarious since it's a perfect proof of how Willis and Affleck were recording their tracks separately: Affleck had just spent the past 2 minutes laughing and making goofy noises).

ruddiger posted:

Pain and Gain was an amazing satire but the bit near the end where all of a sudden the cops become hyper competent and wishing to redeem themselves even though all of this happened in part because they didn't do their jobs properly tells you every thing you need to know about Bay.

i watched 6 Underground in the background while doing work but I don't really think you can call it a satire when it actually casts the "white/Western saviours doing CIA tactics in deposing a brown nation leader and installing their own preferred nicer guy" in a good light

the guys who hosed up their Venezuela mission to kidnap Maduro, that was a pretty good satire

Hmm...

quote:

-The infamous "bloody orgy" video was also longer. Parts which are still in the scene, like one of the crew members sticking his fingers deep into other one's eyes, and a female crew member sodomizing male crew member with iron pipe, were even more violent in original version of the scene. There were also lot more shots of Event Horizon crew naked and covered in blood having violent sex and raping and eating each other, more graphic version of the scene where man pulls his intestines out of his mouth, one crew member is held and stabbed in back of the head with spike and part of his mouth and teeth drops out, other crew member is crawling on floor while others are hitting his legs with steel bars smashing them to pieces as he screams and is crawling away leaving pieces of his legs behind, one girl has screws drilled into her teeth, other girl is held while her arm is broken with hunk of metal, one more girl has her breasts mauled and then ripped off by another crew member, some other parts of the scene were also cut. The reason why this scene disturbed the test audience was because the filmmakers, in order to make the scene look more realistic and therefore a lot more violent, hired real-life amputees for special effects scenes where Event Horizon crew members had their body parts damaged in many ways, and porn actors were hired to make the sex and surprise sex scenes more graphic. According to producer Jeremy Bolt and director Paul W.S. Anderson, during the screening of a rough cut of the movie, some audience members started fainting while watching this scene.

I have changed my opinion. I guess it is possible to go too far down the rabbit hole.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

An amusing anecdote with event horizon was that slowbeef was watching the movie at some point and his daughter walked in, so he paused it, but it happened to be during that scene, which in the final movie only appears in brief flashes so you can barely see anything - however due to the fact that he panic paused it it paused on one of those horrors, and he just kept trying and it just kept showing some new awful thing as he tried to get his daughter out. He mentioned it on a stream.
