I absolutely loved that this movie didn't rely on cheap jump scare tactics and focused on freighting scenery with minimal musical score with those creepy images. Some definitely planted in my mind forever... Also if I recall correctly there was probably only one jump scare in the whole movie? When Annie emerges from the shadow and chases Peter? Loved this film.

Imagine this, Doctor Strange and Iron Man are on planet Titan. The two titans stare at each other on the planet Titan as rain assaults the ground. Lightning erupts the darkened sky and Iron Man utilizes his x-ray vision on his suit and sees through Doctor Strange's identity. "Doctor Stephen Strange? I'm actually impressed" Tony quips.

Doctor Strange seems uncomfortable, to which Tony notices and says "what? You thought a kino cape can deceive the world's greatest detective?" To which meta Doctors Stranger notices something familiar, he was a detective too. A Holmes detective. Like Tony! And then Dr. Strangest goes "will no shit Elementary! Its Holmes my dear Sherlock!"

The sad thing is I wrote this in 20 minutes

So I went to go see Avengers: Infinity War over the weekend and I saw it in regular digital cinema in one of the biggest auditoriums they had. Before the movie started, one of the previews was to promote the "cinemark XD experience" and it utilized the current sound system to show how loud it could be. And I thought to myself "dang this theatre can get pretty loud with just that preview" but then when the actual movie started it was pretty quiet and I thought it would get louder with the action sequences but it never did. I was so confused because even the XD preview was louder than the actual movie. I never remembered standard movies being this quiet, I remember I saw The Avengers (2012) in the SAME auditorium and it was LOUD. So now it leaves me with the question, are movie theaters purposely making movies quieter so more people can be influenced in paying extra to see it in XD, or am I just crazy?

Old people complain about movies being too loud so the theater will turn it down, but the management is either too busy or too lazy to turn it back up for the next show. In addition to that the studios have been steadily increasing the volume of their trailers despite an agreement made several years ago with theater owners to quiet them down some.

Getting the EQ right in an auditorium is as much an art as a science. It takes hours of work and usually a few passes between EQing and listening to known content to get it just right. Most of the major chains have dumped their internal techs and outsourced to third party companies who won’t give their employees time to do anything besides “get it in spec”, which is fairly loose and can sound good from one seat and terrible in others.

A properly tuned auditorium will allow you to hear the slightest whisper or the loudest explosion without straining or discomfort. The sound will immerse you and draw you in without subtle surround effects being too apparent.

Edit: removed an “omg” that made it in there somehow.

Wow, this is great information! I knew I felt naive about posting this because I know nothing about theatre mixing, EQ, and the process of getting the right sound. This explains a lot, thank you!

Theaters are just generally poorly mixed as far as sound goes... if it's not too quiet then it's generally too loud.

What you're describing would likely cause people to just stop going to the theaters rather than upgrade their ticket.

Oh yeah I never thought about that. But for me I wasn't expecting for my ears to blow out I just wanted it to be loud enough so it can tune out all the people eating and opening plastic bags

And then Deadpool walks in and says the fword to the audience 😂😂👌🏽👌🏽

Some of the best scenes in movies is having two or more characters rip each other apart verbally in an argument. If these scenes are done right, it can cause a suspenseful atmosphere with great tension. A few of my favorite argument scenes are

The argument between Tenoch and Julio in Y Tu Mamá También

The scene from Reservoir Dogs when Nice Guy, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White are arguing if there is a setup or not

Steve Jobs and John Sculley arguing about how Steve got fired from the movie Steve Jobs

La La Land, when Sebastian and Mia have that heated argument

Birdman, Riggan and Mike getting coffee

These are just some of my personal favorites and I know there are tons more, please share some of your favorites arguments! Old or new!

The scene in pulp fiction where Vincent’s drug dealer and his girlfriend are arguing while Mia is overdosing is one of my faves.

Omg yes! It made it even more intense knowing they're racing against time and it always makes me laugh when Vincent yells "GET THE SHOT" and then Lance goes "I will if you let me" "AINT NOBODY STOPPING YOU" its all great haha

Also Fassbender vs. Rogen.

Hello so I'm having trouble finding a place to set my dock. If I put it in front of my tv on my dresser it cuts off my tv display because the Switch dock is so tall and wide. I've had people tell me to put the dock behind my tv but I'm scared that the switch won't get much ventilation and overheat. Is this true? I live in a small apartment in a tiny room and I don't have enough room to buy a small stand to put it in next to the tv. Any advice will help thank you!!

It won't overheat behind your TV.

It won't overheat anywhere unless you are trying to make it overheat, dw just put it anywhere lol, that is the point of the system

I would love the $50 US card please! There are so many games that I would love to get because I just got my switch and don't have many games, I would definitely get Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with card! Thanks and good luck to everyone (:

LaKeith Stanfield, seriously this guy is in more movies than you think and he gives amazing performances. He even made his "L" performance decent in that forsaken Death Note Netflix movie. Also he is an amazing rapper, just listen to some of his songs. This guy has serious talent, all he needs is a lead actor role and he can grab those oscar nominations.

  1. Blade Runner 2049

  2. Dunkirk

  3. War for the Planet of the Apes

  4. The Disaster Artist

I personally think you're better off with a Grip Case than a Hybrid Cover like this one. A Grip Case makes the Switch about 10 times more comfortable to play in handheld mode.

I actually bought the hybrid cover before I posted this and I can honestly say for me that it is completely playable handheld mode. I thought the flap would be a nuisance to me while playing handheld but after 20min of folding it over and playing 2 hours later, I didn't even notice I was holding it. It works perfect and love it, then again I wouldn't buy this at retail for $25, I think $15 is a fair deal to get a case and a stand for your Switch imo

This is a tough one for me, and I'm not just talking about recent Oscar Best Picture winners here. In 25 years I think I have a general idea of what someone might call a "classic" such as your obvious Christopher Nolan films and a Denis Villeneuve film here or there, but what about like a cult classic? Or a film that did pretty well, but did not receive as much attention as we hoped. People will take notice of it when it gets labeled as a classic. I like to think of Whiplash being a great classic, in my experience people see Damien Chazelle's La La Land as a overrated oscar bait, but nobody likes to bring up how great Whiplash is or people have just stopped talking about it. I feel in those 20 years people will go like "man we wasted all that time bashing La La Land when we had a perfect film like Whiplash right there". Another I think of as a cult classic will be Only God Forgives. Oh man was this film bad, but I just love it so much. I feel within the coming years it might be seen as Fight Club esque movie you know? Well, those are just some of my thoughts, I'm curious to hear yours!

<insert movies popular on and constantly circlejerked by /r/movies here>

But seriously speaking I would say Moonlight (cause of being a unique film amongst Oscar winners)/

Also Tangerine cause trans-inclusivity will beocme a popular issue in years to come and this movie will be seen as one of the popelar examples from the 10s.

Another film that seems to have potential of being an influential "classic" in its genre is John Wick

Tangerine is a perfect example of an unnoticed film. I remember I was hyped just by the promotional poster and I never watched any trailers or saw any stills of the movie. So when I ended up watching it blind I had no idea they were trans so I was blown away how different this film was. Needless to say I loved it, but nobody I know has seen it! Definitely can see it as a classic as well.

I saw this film in theaters when it came out and the whole crowd had an absolute blast with it. I walked out the theatre mad that I enjoyed it too

I've browsed this subreddit for a while now and I don't see much postings about this film. I absolutely love this movie and as I said is my favorite movie of all time. This movie actually inspired me to start writing screenplays. I know its not a perfect film but I appreciate it for its legacy theme and its originality. I haven't come across a movie that resembles this at all, or I might just be naive. I just love how all three acts are different but connect in the end. Seriously, if you have not seen it, definitely watch it. I just want to talk to more people about it!

You're on the right sub. Plenty of love for it here. I was speaking to a friend about it last night. Not sure if you're seen Dark, the German stranger things with added time travel. Basically I felt that Dark had elements of Place Beyond the Pines, in that events from one generation strongly effect the following generation. I think PBTP should be up there as an all time American classic.

I have not seen Dark, but I'm willing to checkout any thing that resembles PBTP, I'll watch it soon thanks! Good to know I saw that show is on Netflix too

I love that movie! I have “ride like lighting” “crash like thunder” tattooed on my ankles.

Interesting enough I want a tattoo of this movie too!!! I plan on getting the pine tree from the title logo on my wrist or somewhere I can cover up easily for my job

Every time I hear that trailer guy's narration voice, I usually know it's going to be a terrible movie.
