That was here long before I became the Zach Snyder of this sub.

I'm an expert (see my flair). It's Daddy Cool by Boney M.

A Fantastic Woman

An excellent film for anyone who thinks society has evolved regarding issues such as transphobia and homophobia, and now there are still largely unfair double standards and prejudices regarding someone's sexual orientation. It really shows that deep down, we're all complex humans who have the same right to love someone, and the challenges certain people have to go through just to get by on issues that us cis folk usually just take for granted. Great acting, great message, great music (I especially like this song by Daniela Vega), kind of a weak ending, but an amazing film regardless.

This is what i wrote just after seeing it.

Wow. Just wow. There was this quote in the movie where Alfredo said "Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder." And that line was so true. I think from that point on in the movie I was sobbing completely. I have never really cried that much during a movie for such a long duration.

There was another point in the movie where Toto said something along the lines of, "if this was a movie, summer would already be over." I am so overwhelmed with emotion right now I can hardly unpack the movie, but these quotes just stike me with such brutal honesty.

I'm 17. I've seen 78 movies so far this year. And what for? To feel something. To be somewhere I'm not. To escape the difficulty of life and just live for the good parts, and the bad parts, and to just live vicariously through others.

And I have seen so little in my life. I've never had a job. I haven't gone out into the 'real world' and movies are just how I live. How I get through to the next day while all the work I have is overwhelming. It's how I live.

And film is beautiful. There is not much more to say than that. Film is art.

Which version did you watch? IMO, the 3 hour version with the prolonged final act is much better and it gives Alfredo a very sinister dept that fixes the overly saccharine ending that a lot of people dislike. Either way, great movie, top 5 for me.

Before We Vanish. A very interesting take on an alien invasion movie that is less about the tragedy of extinction or the action of a space war, but more about the abstract concepts of what makes us human (sense of possession, self, family, work, and ultimately, the importance of love). It also has its share of action, but that's the most boring aspect of the film, I was more interested in seeing human beings from an outsider's perspective. Really fascinating stuff.

But than again, I also watched Toby Kebbell killing a guy with a trickshot using a plastic hub cap in the middle of a storm in Hurricane Heist, so idk what was the best film I saw this week.

Hey guys! The doc looks amazing. What advice do you have for people who might also want to create documentaries based on the art of making food? Are there any particular challenges that come with it?

He posted that yesterday, the AMA will be today.

Didn't know Netflix will give you free stuff if you get your thread upvoted on r/movies.

Oh but they do. It was kinda genius from their part. After this, we've had so many people trying to post low effort Netflix business model praise trying to cash in.

It absolutely does, there is a lot of politics behind the Oscars, and a good campaign can make or break your film during awards season. You also need to keep in mind that academy members are busy people who don't have time to watch and analyse every film, so studios campaign for their films to get their attention. I'm sure there's a lot of private lunches between producers and academy members to buddy up and secure votes. There's a reason why sometimes some film gets nominated out of thin air (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close comes to mind), their producers go on full steam to get votes.

For The Social Network, Justin Timberlake famously asked Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey how to campaign a performance so he could get nominated because he knows sometimes a great performance is not enough to get the academy's attention, you always need that extra push of familiarity with the academy members who are gonna play hard ball.

The way this works is that you post a review of the best film you watched this week. It doesn't have to be a new release, just any film you have seen over the last seven days that you feel is worth talking about. Here are some rules.

1. Check to see if your favourite film of last week has been posted already.

2. Please post your favourite film of last week.

3. NO TV SHOWS!

4. ALWAYS use spoiler tags. Report any comments that spoil recent / little-known films without using the spoiler tag.

5. Comments that only contain the title of the film will be removed!

Here are some great comments from last week's thread:

For further expansion of the rules, please read this link.

Have fun and play nice!

Sorry for the late discussion thread, /u/mi-16evil went into the shimmer 2 days ago and he mutated into an Ivysaur. RIP.

Here's a link to the previous pseudo-official discussion thread.

EDIT: Discussion is temporarily stickied again for the Netflix release.

Think we can get a Game Night discussion later on in the weekend after the current two are stickied for a bit.
