What does /film/ think of Rotten Tomatoes and imbd scores?

26 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



I found a more comprehensive archive of the forums: https://filmboards.com/



>gave Ghostbusters 2016 a GODDAMN 75%, for fuck's sake

yeah. I had been leery of RT for a long time, but that was the last straw for me. I don't even check their scores out of curiosity anymore.

it's also pretty obvious they're in Disney's pockets. every recent Disney movie (including SW and Marvel) has a noticeably inflated score.


File: 57ac146fd5b52eb⋯.jpg (83.23 KB, 928x523, 928:523, downvoting_trolls_illo.jpg)

I just saw this article about how users are to blame for the problems with these sites

Hollywood Is Losing the Battle Against Online Trolls


>While the attack against The Promise is an extreme case, colored by decades of fraught discussion over the Armenian genocide, it highlights a growing problem in Hollywood. A search of 4chan reveals multiple campaigns against everything from Star Wars spinoff Rogue One to indie Holocaust-denier drama Denial to Justin Simien’s upcoming Netflix series Dear White People, many with step-by-step instructions on how to negatively impact films on sites like IMDb and YouTube. Once just a curiosity — for years, Korean fans made an annual ritual of vaulting K-Pop idol Rain to the top of the Time 100 Poll — online trolls now are a movie marketer's worst nightmare.

>In 2016, the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters became a magnet for a downvoting campaign from 4chan and Reddit users. They organized to give hundreds of thousands of "thumbs down" to the film's YouTube marketing materials — its first official trailer, the video of its theme song, even a clip of the cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Sony began releasing the film's trailers on Facebook, which has no "dislike" button, but by then the trolls had taken hold of the narrative. It's impossible to say whether they made an impact on the box office, but in the end, Ghostbusters lost an estimated $70 million.


Now the (((lawyers))) are hassling the imdb archive sites


>for the past couple months i've been in contact with lawyers representing IMDb and they're not happy about a couple things here. the name being the biggest one. i knew it could be a problem at some point. it was too good a name to pass up though.

>another issue IMDb brought up is they don't like the look of this place. they think it's too close to their old boards. from what i understand, i'll just have to change a color or two. the traditional IMDb gold is the main one. anyone have any cool color suggestions? let me know here!


Rotten tomatoes have absolutely shitty wave scoring. RT is about trend and critics. They do not care about cinematography at all.


>The so-called "critics" that align with the site are spineless shill whores who serve as nothing more than mouthpieces of whatever studio pays them to say in regards to one film or another. This cancerous site is destroying the art of film criticism and damaging the reputation of legitimate cinematic artists. These pigfuckers gave Ghostbusters 2016 a GODDAMN 75%, for fuck's sake.

pretty much the truth

IMDB, on the other hand, owns Amazon and think about it.. Who would go there and write a review for jews to get more data etc.?

Btw I don't know where is IMDB advertised or if it is, but since it's Amazaon service, my guess is that most of faggots on IMDB buy there and Amazon is nothing close to be specialized. And since it's a big service and appears in every search engine right on top, possibility of quality ratings is zero.



The hell I do care about amazon.

I think Soviet/Russian cinema is sometimes overlooked compared to countries like France and Italy. How about a dedicated thread here at /film/?

Russia has more to offer than the dozen titles that everyone knows about. Talk about your faves here, but also the films below the radar in the West. New releases and former Soviet states are welcome too.

It's generally more subdued than Come and See but things get frantic in the second half

By the way I'd love to hear opinions on other Russian Revolution films....or Tolstoy adaptations for that matter


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

Russia's biggest cinema chain has cancelled screenings of a controversial film about the love life of the last tsar Nicholas II after Orthodox Church activists strongly condemned it.

Matilda explores his love for ballerina Matilda Kshesinskaya before he came to the throne, and includes erotic scenes.

The Cinema Park and Formula кино group said it had to "protect cinemagoers from risks" in light of recent threats.

The film is due to go on general release in Russia on 26 October.

The cinema chain's spokeswoman Alexandra Artamonova told BBC Russian that the cancellation "is a necessary measure - we have very many cinemas in 28 Russian cities and we're responsible for them".

The chain noted that there had been "extreme actions by opponents of the film" and threats made against cinemas.

Matilda's director Alexei Uchitel could not be reached for comment. But the producer, Alexander Dostman, shrugged off the cinema chain's move, saying, "There's no point worrying - people will still watch the film anyway".

On Monday two cars were torched outside the Moscow office of a lawyer acting for Uchitel, a director who has picked up several Russian awards for previous films.

Lawyer Konstantin Dobrynin posted Facebook photos of burnt-out cars and notes left at the scene saying "Burn for Matilda".

Nicholas II was canonised in 2000 by the Orthodox Church, so campaigners see the exposé of his love affair as an insult.

MP Natalia Poklonskaya, a staunch supporter of President Vladimir Putin, has been campaigning to get the film's release blocked.

An early showing of Matilda went ahead in the far eastern city of Vladivostok on Monday, amid tight security. But a Moscow cinema decided to cancel its showing for "technical" reasons.

Early on 31 August some petrol bombs were thrown at a St Petersburg building housing Uchitel's studio, but the interior was not damaged.

The Kremlin has condemned letters that warned cinemas they would "burn" if they dared screen Matilda. There have been protests by a group calling itself "Christian State, Holy Russia".Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I just read the first third of it. There aren't too many differences.

The anime is less detailed about sex ....erm, rape. It also adds introductory scenes. The manga only has a few lines of text about her life before joining the freaks.

A live action Midori was made a few years ago. I plan to watch that too sometime.

It was a great suggestion, fascinating all around. I've been mulling over the bizarre story (certain things don't make sense), the one-man animation project (some brilliant sequences despite limitations), and the phenomenon of ero guro (definitely part of "weird asia", although a tad brutal for me).

Have any of you thought about some music being powerful enough to being an equivalent to film reaching the status of a quasi/pseudo-film. Even if not as vividly articulated music always paints pictures in the mind which can then be in turn related to the aesthetics of film. Music that can be best met with a match or easily painted pictures besides concept albums and initial prog rock is music with texture and sonic landscapes like kosmischeklang, early post-rock, and some post-punk/no-wave but I'd also like to hear the genres that paint a film in your head. I'm not saying the two mediums are interchangeable or trying to break the boundaries of art but it'd be nice to discuss and break up the monotony of the threads on the front pages.

The thread this one replaced was a 9-reply thread on Inherent Vice.

Some words on the extramusical by Aaron Copland ("What to Listen for in Music").



Thanks for sharing! I agree with Copland that music commentators can be insufferable. The same holds for film theorists to a certain degree.

Copland makes an interesting distinction between Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. I wonder if everyone here would prefer Beethoven to Tchaikovsky, even if the former was the superior composer? Personally I rarely listen to Beethoven because I've heard it many times and I want to explore new territory. I haven't heard Tchaikovsky's symphonies as often so he's more appealing to me.

I might have something that plays better with normies: Todd Haynes' Safe. Compared to the other suggestion, this one is 1) newer and 2) features a Hollywood star. (Those are the two main reasons to watch a movie, right?) Safe isn't a true horror but the film has a uniquely unsettling atmosphere that builds and builds. See what you think.

I just finished Yojimbo, I didn't nearly like it as much as Harakiri, it felt more like popcorn entertainment than a film because of the goofy acting and awkward pacing.


File: 01fc00b46cc88e5⋯.jpg (92.92 KB, 1352x810, 676:405, a-fistful-of-dollars-scree….jpg)


I was underwhelmed by Yojimbo too, probably because I expected something better. It was one of the first Kurosawa films I watched; it took a while for me to watch another from him. It's definitely nowhere near Harakiri.

For me, the Leone connection is the most interesting aspect of Yojimbo.



It was very lighthearted in comparison to other works, but i found the use of black & white in particular very, very good.

The use of rich textures and their respective light and shadow results to create dense-to-the-eye backgrounds is excellent, sometimes with movement too (flowing sake madness, the silly encounter in the middle of smoking the mansion, destroyed guard house).

Sounds pretentious but that kind of level of detail did impress me, especially when it was one of the first Kurosawa i saw too.

Sanjuro takes on a slightly more serious note but it's just as silly later on in terms of violence and some acting. It does retain the quality level in most aspects, it wasn't a shameless sequel.

Not yet, but that's part of the reason I said his films are different, at least in genre. Galax is about a "man-doll" humanoid, A Bomb Was Stolen is a black and white comedy with no dialogue, and he also directed a medieval fantasy film called The White Moor. Quite a range just in those three

And to follow Daisies and Valerie I will recommend a couple more Czech films: Mala morska vila (The Little Mermaid) and Morgiana. Both of these are

If you are feeling adventurous you could also try The Deserters and the Nomads by Slovak director Juraj Jakubisko. This one has "surrealistic sensory overload" as imdb says. You may not enjoy it if you are just starting out, it's sometimes hard to follow, but I'd say it's one of the most interesting CZSK films of the late 1960's.



Sorry I don't know what happened to my comment "Both of these are"

Both of them will give you more flavours of the wonderful Czech New Wave aesthetic



You're on the right path if that's any encouragement. Check out Marketa Lazarova. It's often mentioned on /film/ and for good reason. Make sure that you're in the right mood.





Thank you for the recommendations, The Deserters and the Nomads seems the most interesting so I'll probably watch that one first. Marketa Lazarova also seems interesting since I enjoy stories about conflicts between pagans and christians, there are not enough of those. Also, the girl is cute.


You can't go wrong with either of those great films. Tell us what you think of them.

I posted medieval recs earlier in the thread too, in case you need some more. :P

I thought this might be a good idea so that we don't crowd the catalog and that threads of a higher quality can remain more accessible for longer. I'll start... and I apologize because I know how vague this is going to be. A couple months back (and I think it was on this board) I saw a recommendation for a French film that was made in the last five years. It's most obvious characteristic was the intense, unusual camerawork; holding on strange angles and shaking violently at times. I saw a scene and all I remember is that it took place in the woods, with two characters maybe? That's all I have...

Judging by inscriptions found in many parts of Brazil, the inhabitants used an alphabetical writing allied to many ancient European and Asian scripts. There are rumors, too, of a strange source of light in the buildings, a phenomenon that filled with terror the Indians who claimed to have seen it.

>The central place I call “Z” — our main objective — is in a valley surmounted by lofty mountains. The valley is about ten miles wide, and the city is on an eminence in the middle of it, approached by a barreled roadway of stone. The houses are low and windowless, and there is a pyramidal temple. The inhabitants of the place are fairly numerous, they keep domestic animals, and they have well-developed mines in the surrounding hills. Not far away is a second town, but the people living in it are of an inferior order to those of “Z.” Farther to the south is another large city, half buried and completely destroyed.




rest of Gray's films are decent to good too


It's okay but not anything particularly good or great. Comfy watch though.

That's how I felt. I thought it started quite good, then got muddled in the middle, but it pulled everything together for a strong finish.

This film looks absolutely gorgeous though. The cinematography is probably influenced by early 20th century depictions like Days of Heaven and Heaven's Gate. I like when beams of sunlight pass into a darkened room to show all the dust floating around.

They chose to make his wife some sort of feminist, as she objected to various societal conventions. She also begged to go on the jungle adventures and leave the kids behind. I don't know if these scenes were true to life, but it seemed rather Current Year and predictable. I read that the real Nina Fawcett was interested in mysticism. I think that would have been a more interesting character trait. That could have added a completely different element to the film, as Percy shared her interest. There's supposedly evidence that Percy's expeditions were partially guided by his desire to start an Amazonian spiritual commune.
