don't forget that lovely movie from literally like 2 months ago where John Cena played a big manly fireman who ended up in temporary possession of some children. it's a subgenre unto itself.

Stop looking at asinine ratings of movies ? Cinema score is lol awful and rotten tomatoes should only serve as an aggregator of reviews if you want to read then , not as a score of the movie. Your playing yourself

D+ I think. I legitimately believe this is the moment that changed A24.

Are you referring to Uncut Gems? Because itís one of A24ís most profitable movies ever apparently, so Iím not too sure theyíre concerned.

I'm referring to the Witch getting a D and this being borne out with the general audience reaction, I think they were spooked by the fact that people apparently walked out of it feeling cheated rather than hailing it as a masterpiece. From that point on, the way they promoted their films changed to the point that it's comically overdone, they have completely cultivated "A24 fans" who are ready for anything that studio has to offer, rather than trying to convince general audiences to give their movies a shot and getting mad when they don't get The Conjuring or something.

Okay, yes, I agree with that take completely. The newfound cargo cult around A24 like theyíre not a corporation marketing to a niche, but are actually the last bastion of great cinema, weirds me the gently caress out.

It's very similar to the Mondo posters, basically.

This is no value judgement on The VVitch by the way, except for the part that I acknowledge part of the reason I enjoyed it so much is because people were audibly and visibly disgusted at the showing I went to.

Someone has to have overlaid it at the part where Gabriel Byrne lights himself on fire by now, right?

I think a big part of the problem re: Aster's filmography is that we as audiences are so anesthetized to seeing movies about the domestic problems of obscenely well-off people and then being told by film critics that this is some profound commentary on grief or the human condition or whatever that folks literally don't know how to suss out when a filmmaker is just taking those things to its most absurdly grotesque extreme, and then just directing it well.

Like, Midsommar, for instance, is far more authentically concerned with grief than Hereditary, which literally predicates the entire 'relatable' dysfunction of this family on a stoned teenager accidentally decapitating his sister. This is like Dewey Cox but played straight.

Very well said, lol. "Wrong kid died!"

Majkol posted:

The bolded part is a little dishonest, it's pretty clear Toni Collette's mother was a major abusive piece of poo poo and it hosed up the family real good. It's even in the title.

It's also important to note that Toni Collette herself is pretty clearly an abuser.

A lot of early novels were explicitly written as such, I think there's a bit of misreporting or misrepresentation when it comes to whether people "believed" them.

Feels like a huge false equivalence. Goofy spooky books about Yetis in Pasadena being adapted into a meta kids flick really doesn't seem like the obvious path for a series of books about high schoolers dealing with the emotional, physical, and social repercussions of becoming the only people who can save Earth from a secret alien invasion, especially seeing how the books only matured over time and how they ended. The Vampire Diaries or The 100 or even Stranger Things seems like a much better match for the material. Or even the latter Harry Potter movies.

Yeah, Animorphs has a bit of heft to it that many of these completely generic YA stories don't even bother with.

For a thought experiment, let's take two identical-seeming phrases:

A: "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I take a look at my life and realize there's not much left."

B: "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I take a look at my life and realize there's not much left."

One of those is an unedited quote from Gangsta's Paradise, written by Coolio. The other is a quote from the parody song Amish Paradise by "Weird Al" Yankovic - which I have extensively edited, without any permission, to more closely resemble the quote from Coolio.

Obviously, at least one of those two quotes is about struggle and impeding mortality. I would even say that both quotes are! But, according to the logic of Baron, one of the quotes is absolutely meaningless because it was originally supposed to be about a homely Amish woman.

But which? Is it Quote B? I think it's Quote A - but what if I'm lying? What if I forgot which was which while writing this post? What if both quotes are from Coolio - or what if both are heavily modified quotes from "Weird Al"? It could be that, by introducing this doubt, both quotes are now intrinsically meaningless, and the obvious reference to Psalm 23:4 no longer exists. But maybe not.

This is the best post ever written, lmao.

Yea I suppose it's unfair to say the marketing was bad as if that wasn't also effected by the pandemic. I assume there would've been more of a steady buildup of marketing if not for the whole release date shifting mess that the pandemic caused.

The thing that trips me out is that it's being discussed as though it's your obligation to go support Warner Bros. in these trying times. I don't give two fucks about their need to make back the money they spent making a movie, nor does anyone else. Sit on it and release it next year.
