Hey, /tv/

Does anyone here know how I can find the book of concept art for Mad Max: Fury Road without ordering it over amazon? I've really wanted to get my hands on this book, but haven't found a single torrent with it. Anyone have a link to a torrent site that has it? Anyone got it uploaded?

Hopefully you missed this board--at least a little bit.

Codemonkey was able to recover most threads and posts after the site database was deleted by a hacker. Some post elements are still missing but there are ways to fill the gaps. If you notice anything that needs to be fixed, please reply to this thread.

For reference, /film/ is archived in two places:

Official: https://archive.8ch.net/threads.html#!film

Internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/*/8ch.net/film/index.html

I'm able restore embeds by editing individual posts. Images with a /file_store/ URL can be restored if the same file is uploaded anywhere on the site. At least I hope that works. Older images with a /film/src/ URL cannot be restored because I cannot edit post attachments.

I'm disappointed that many flags are gone. Country flags have been part of the character of this board since the beginning. Unfortunately there's not much I can do about that either.

Perhaps you visited the endchan bunker during the downtime: https://endchan.xyz/film/ . We also own https://8ch.pl/film/ . For now these boards are backup options just in case things don't work out here.

OK that's it. Welcome back everyone. I hope we haven't lost too many people.

> 8chan's alternative sites are mostly about politics, video games and anime

This site is dominated by those topics too. I'm convinced there are a lot of other interesting boards on 8chan, but there's no way to quickly check them all. You have to visit each board individually. Since niche topics have slow boards most people don't even bother. I wish 8chan had a customizable multiboard - view all your favorites as a single board.

Also it'd be cool to see a notification when one of your favorites gets a post. For example you'd see /film/ (1) in the topbar.

I've been unhappy with the 8chan administration for a long time. I don't want you guys to think I have loyalty to them, given their duplicitous behavior and general apathy toward improving the site. I gave serious thought to leaving during Infinity Next (which I hated). That's when I started making alternative /film/ boards. Leaving will always be an option, but I'd want a consensus from people here.


 No.9398

>>9395

If anything, no homo intended, i've only seen you and maybe the guys at /bane/ and /polk/ being the only decent BO's around here, so no hard feelings perceived here so far. Quite the company too

This last event did bring a lot of heat in plenty of folks, some outsider boards revived with traffic, and long-term ones as far as i've seen (8.pl, the /a/ bunker, spichan did get some users)

Doing a consensus vote here might be difficult, for starters it seems we don't even need one due to the pacific nature so far. If we get heat from that one thread, that's when things get shady. Kinda what happened with the old painless /rs/ back in the day

It will all depend if a specific search for a movie redirects people here, which doesn't seem the case, i tried 5 movies from the request thread and the de-listing from Google works (only brings results when one puts the name of site explicitly)

tl;dr All looks OK here, for now

What is the best way to get normies to not just like cape shit or whatever is popular for the decade.

Most people into cinema I talk to tend to have had parents who showed them alternative and world cinema and were exposed at a young age.

 No.9329

You can't, simple as that.

Most normies have zero artistic sensibility. Beauty flies directly over their head, as does meaning.

You could present them them with works of pure artistic genius and they would have the emotional response of your avarage brick.

Do not bother my man. Normies have no soul.

legit question

how can you enjoy an art film with themes of romance, love, and sex if you're a virgin? I mean you can admire the composition/use of color/lightning/camera movement but you've never actually experienced what's going on onscreen and what it is portraying, you can't get an emotional response from it, unless I'm mistaken

also I'm not saying virgin equals unloved or unloving.

>>9330

Well, I speculate about how good being loved must feel based on my knowledge of how bad it feels to be unloved.

Also it's not as though the images don't speak for themselves. However I must admit that I always find some melancholy hidden in films dealing with love. So there's that. Now that I think of it, I can't recall any love film that was a pleasurable watch if not in a masochistic way. Maybe that's what you meant. So while I'm able to "get" these films in the sense of identifying positive emotions (only a total retard or autist wouldn't be able to do so), these images do not necessarily resonate with me in a positive way. But they do evoke strong emotions nonetheless.

It's about how man is out of step with nature in a bad way (we move too fast), but how nature is still much more powerful than we are.

Notice speed. The car zipping by. The camera focusing on the filmmakers in the desert (after it had been on the animals), followed by sped up footage.

Then it stops dead, and shows us the power nature has to wash away our works, and to turn out the lights.

And this was a STUDENT film!

I can't stress enough how overlooked George Lucas is as a filmmaker. It's almost become an obsession for me.

I am very saddened we will never see what George had in mind for Episodes VII, VIII & IX.

Too bad a rather vocal part of the ‘fans’ caused him to end his film-maker career early, and sell Star Wars.

I suspect a growing number will begin to re-evaluate their opinion on him and his work in the coming years. You don’t hear fans of the OT only mention that ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ got mixed and even bad reviews when it came out.

I watch many films that most people would consider bad. I do not mean overproduced films that critics hate, like Transformers, but just movies that most people dislike for objective reasons. I think watching movies that are of lower quality really inspires me and keeps my brain engaged, thinking of ways to improve the movie, what the director could be thinking and why things turned out the way they did.

Isaac Asimov said that the best source of inspiration for him was through watching mildly interesting movies.

I believe an important part of being a connoisseur in anything is to consume a lot of shit. Do you agree?

This kind of thinking leads nowhere fast. That you need to be in the right place at the right time to take advantage of a window of opportunity goes without saying. He took this advantage in the Soviet Union, but there is no telling if he wouldn't have had an analogous opportunity in the UK or in America, or anywhere else for that matter.

A biography can't be separated from its circumstances so it's stupid to try to seriously simulate stuff like this. The variables will grow exponentially the more you dig in.

For one, it would be highly unlikely for him to soak Orthodox spirituality as a Westerner - he would have had different thematic interests. He would have also studied editing from a different academic perspective and likely never arrive at his time-sculpting theory. He would have different political concerns.

But then there's no telling if this fantasy upbringing would have given him the tools to start a career in film specifically, as opposed to medicine or editorial work. After all, he would have had different childhood role models, influences and hobbies. He would have applied to different schools.

Tldr: stupid.

Old bump. Well there is no definitive answer to your question.His work is absolutely saturated in Russian culture and the more natural places that he grew up in. Would his films still have that poetic quality? Probably but I wouldn't be surprised if he dealt with different themes, or better said similar themes in vastly different circumstances. Andrei Rublev (or any of his films) would not exist, and I have really no idea what would be in their place. He would still have been able to find funding just based on his talent and visual eye, and I do believe that he would have found success, although maybe not to the degree of his Soviet career.

I'm not sure about the ring. There's not much to pick up from just that scene. I can't make any definitive statements unless I rewatched more scenes with it.

Don't know if this is the right thread but I didn't wanna make another one - there's a film I've been trying to find for ages after someone posted a scene from it in an 'auteurs' thread iirc.

It looked like it was from the 90's - possibly early 2000s - and it had the same lo-fi, colour saturated look as Gummo. I distinctly remember that the scene itself started with shots of excavators and suburban houses. I could be wrong but I *think* the scene involved a boy/man on a skateboard either talking to himself or someone else about something biblical.

So I'm a really fucking bored autist with literally nothing better to do. Pic related shows how an older version of the rating system ranked a portion of the 200 or so I ran through it.

Currently, the system I have in place works on a 400 point scale that I then turn into a 0 - 100% overall rating:

>Viewer Score (IMDb - mostly unbiased)

>Critic Score (RT - slight bias)

>Return on Investment (The Numbers/Box Office Mojo - occasional bias with some films needing to resort to a default figure if no information can be found)

>Mistakes (IMDb's Goofs section - occasionally biased against more popular films but works well against others such as Superman IV or the earlier Fas'n'Fury installments)

But before I go into it full time for about an hour each day, I need to know if there's anything else I should consider adding. I contemplated separating Ebert's scores from the rest of the critics but that would have been too time consuming and he doesn't review things on a 100 or even 10 point scale, so it would be locked at certain values. I also considered the J-Dar, but then realized it had shut down with the lights on but no-one in, not to mention the severe bias it would have and the incorrect information it sometimes possesses.

 No.9023

I am not sure if ratings matter very much on this board- you cannot judge to what extent you'll enjoy a film based on a number, just its popular appeal,IMO. A good ratings system, to my mind, would perhaps consider production quality, intent and interesting-ness.

For example, look at a film like The Keep. Is it a "good" film? All in all, I'd say it's a mangled mess, so not really. Is it interesting beyond that? I'd say certainly, and definitely worth a watch. It has intention,themes and cinematography worth checking out.

So as far as ratings go, it would be lovely to have one that has say, one general rating and one rating for whether it is interesting in other ways. Whether this is a subjective understanding, i'm not sure. Any takers?

As an overall "should i watch it" popular Hollybuff rating i think it's pretty decent, but i don't think it's a good way to find a "good" movie

IMDb is highly biased in newer movies, but i agree in older ones it goes OK

RT is very swinging, their system refers mostly to a yes or no due to anything being 90+ or -50

Moneymaking prowness is a bizarre stat, plenty of not very good flicks have made absurd amounts of money, while a bunch of good ones have been box office bombs or received no mainstream aperture

Then you have old boy Ebert, the mood swinging man, his rating system depended on his breakfast quality and ended up with a similar RT answer, it's not about good or bad, it's about wasting your 10 bucks ticket or not

And all of this might present a controversial decision, not in a thousand years will El Mariachi be better than The Godfather, in 10 bucks or quality perspectives, same with Fistful of Dollars slapping Das Boot

For a local rating, or a filmeater one, my idea would be a good plot synopsis, due to our opinion varying highly on our personal tastes regarding plot, and a small 7 star rating, with 4 being average, 1-3 varying degrees of not good and 5-7 varying degrees of good. A movie might be a 2 but its story, actors and director/writer might persuade us to check it if we are fanatics of 2 or 3 of these factors. Same with a 6, the story might turn us off along with its director, no execution might save it from a personal distaste in some cases

Just an opinion thou

One of the best ranking (not rating) systems I've seen is the "Most Favorited" on ICM. It's calculated without giving an edge to the most popular films...

https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/

> The most favorite movies on the iCheckMovies.com website, based on the movies' favorites/checks ratio. By looking at the ratio, unknown gems don't necessarily get overpowered by more well-known movies

The most favorites movies are calculated by picking the movies with the highest favorite/checked count ratio. The exact formula used to determine the ratio of a movie is as follows:

ratio(M) = F(M) ÷ (C(M) + 50)

Where:

M: A movie
F(M): Number of times movie M has been favorited
C(M): Number of times movie M has been checked
I don't know how you'd make adjustments for the data on imdb or RT, but it might be possible to extract more meaningful information from those sites.

Okay I'll take an obvious one. My favourite from the wiki page is probably Japanese New Wave with particular appreciation for The Art Theatre Guild during this time. Almost every JNW film I've seen has been very interesting and creative. Admittedly I'm watching all the best ones, but usually you run into some turds while exploring a film movement.

One of my least favourites is French New Wave because it is overrated. The films often do not resonate with me much. They experimented, not always successfully.

Taking the banter nationality alone, makes me wonder if everyone missed the pun with The Departed plot moving around St. Patrick's day and its non-irish irish characters or if you really consider that thing Patrician, if that word means anything these days

>>2053

What if the original intent to make "art" had a lot of money behind it? aka De Laurentis bizarre side projects used to launder/burn money and the Zack Effron movie?

And 2-buck attempts with half-way decent narratives have been made for the motive of money, see Clerks

Aren't the majority of patrician films low-budget, egocentric projects made by philosophy/arts rejects by these rules then?

Furthermore, why can we just watch anything we like and call them decent pieces of work under certain general criteria of mood?

Usually cgi bothers me but I still managed to enjoy The Host. More fun than anything but there is some neat cinematography and it's actually pretty funny at some parts. I'll check out Arrival at some point, probably within the next month.
