Re: Film and Philosophy

I can't help it if certain people resort to cheap shot ad hominems because they can't form a coherent counter-argument.

My post doesn't argue for your conclusion anywhere except in your deranged mind where words only correspond to what you want them to.

Don't pull the 1337 intellectual on me. WTF? I don't know what your post had to do with anything I said. Your writing credentials have nothing to do whether or not there's more (or less) there than you intended. Yes, stories and all art are about communication, but it might beho...

Film and Philosophy

Just because I couldn't let this crap pass: The problem is that many times, filmmakers simply don't understand the material well enough to dramatize it, so they end up with a result that is a poorly thought out mess of pretentious nonsense. And in the few cases where the result isn't poo...

I wish all of Wenders' films could've been that amazing... he seems to go for that same aesthetic in every one but misses as often as he hits.

I've officially set my departure date for this Monday, which should be how long it will take me to get everything done I need to get done before I escape into audiophile Eden.

I remember this "Identity between reality and dreams" theme also in Anno's film Shiki-Jitsu, in which he himself wanted to play as the main character... Good post katastroff. I wrote about the connections between NGE and Shiki-Jitsu concerning that topic in my review for the latter, w...

The result is that you look at a few perfectly innocent, ridiculously ordinary-looking sentences and wonder why these make you feel such huge quantities of emotion. I'd say that's the results of arranging words in an artful way. ;) Nah, I know what you're saying, but we just took &q...

Why are you making the separation? Surely you're not assuming I think of Shinji as a real person... If you're talking about despising Shinji for things he does then you are treating him as a real person, unless you're saying it makes him a bad character because they don't fit with h...

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but one of the funniest moments is when the power goes out and Ritsuko looks around and says "It wasn't me". :lol:

This is the only film by Malick I have ever seen so I cannot compare it with other films from his output. Thanks for the comment, symbv. Honestly, I don't think TTRL is the best film to start with Malick with. I saw it back when it came out, around the same time as Saving Private Ryan, actually...

It's about realizing one is more than his "work identity", so to speak. When the anime is over he still needs to wake up the next day, after all. I also always felt the whole "Then... where is my dream? - It is the continuation of reality. - Where is... my reality? - It is at the...

My blunt response was a strike back at you for giving such a dreadful reply. Sorry, that was me channeling my inner Xard. The problem is that I don't see anything so great about its execution that it would redeem whatever flaws it has. Sure, I liked the film a lot, but in overall it doesn't...
