There's a couple more where Yuen Biao got his fame, they are decent enough but i did saw them long time ago

Knockabout - Sammo Hung

Wheels on Meals - Sammo Hung

Magnificent Butcher - Woo-ping Yuen

Dreadnaught - Woo-ping Yuen

Whopping also made Iron Monkey

The first Armour of God is also decent, personal opinion i prefer it from the second one.

I would also include Once Upon a Time in China 2, only because it has Jet Li against Don Yen, but it's not as good as the first and the subtitles are somewhat off even in the Bluray version. The stunts are just as good even if it is the only thing going for it, they have no solid justifications behind it, characters really don't have any build-up. Only if you loved the first.

And i think Police Story was in the list back there, even when it was only distributed by GH i believe. Just checked and yes, it's there, guess the list also includes movies distributed, but not made, by them.

That makes it more outrageous, A Chinese Ghost Story, Fist of Legend, Tai Chi Master, and some Stephen Chow comedies, if you like his highly repetitive style.

>it's because of the US-centric world we live in and that that sort of wide appeal cheesiness makes people like them

Decent point. During most of the 20th century there was minimal access to world cinema in the US. It was hard enough to see the "classics" before VCRs. People only watched Hollywood films so they only liked Hollywood films. In that cloistered environment, with no outside competition, the reputation for old Hollywood films grew to legendary status. As the US became a global superpower, their cultural preferences were pushed onto the rest of the world.

On this board our film perspective covers all decades and all countries, so the Hollywood classics are less compelling. But, the 20th century mindset persists with many people who still love the old films. They might think differently if they explored the totality of world cinema.

Anyway, I'll add The Philadelphia Story as a highly-praised mediocrity. It's featured on many AFI best-of lists, it was nominated for 6 Oscars (winning two), and it's the only film where Jimbo Stewart meets Cary Grant. I think it's dull and talky. I have yet to see a Katherine Hepburn movie that I'd recommend watching.

The majority of classics you are underwhelmed by are because their influence was so great that you've already seen some of the movies influenced by them and so the originality at that time has been copied to death.


 No.13025

I think the biggest reason The African Queen is so highly regarded is because Bogart and K Hepburn are considered by many to be the greatest actor and actress of the golden era, and I believe it's the only movie with both of them in it.

As for the thread topic, I found Sunset Boulevard shallow and misguided. I didn't like the plot or the cinematography and I thought the acting was poor.

If you classify anime as Japanese animation, yes. I also believe his puppeteer technique is closer to eastern animation than western, since he lacks the western fear of his characters looking lifeless if he holds them still.

How about top 10 actresses from films before 1980? I got a thing for Swede blondes but I did include a few black haired beauties. It all started when I was talking with a friend about how much more brautiful women were casted to bring works to life and capture our hearts and really make them classics. But after googling some women I remember fondly I found them to be pretty rat faced and disgusting. Also bonus points are seeing them at 80-90 years old and how sometimes beauty never fades or how plastic surgery and drugs really affects the elite. Anyways heres mine in order.

The main character "Frank Buck" was actually a real person.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0118353/

<Frank Howard Buck (March 17, 1884 – March 25, 1950) was an American hunter, animal collector, and author, as well as a film actor, director, and producer. Beginning in the 1910s he made many expeditions into Asia for the purpose of hunting and collecting exotic animals, bringing over 100,000 live specimens back to the United States and elsewhere for zoos and circuses and earning a reputation as an adventurer. He co-authored seven books chronicling or based on his expeditions, beginning with 1930's Bring 'Em Back Alive, which became a bestseller. Between 1932 and 1943 he starred in seven adventure films based on his exploits, most of which featured staged "fights to the death" with various wild beasts.

Hi /film/, haven't been on here in a while but I'm glad to see the board still seems to be alive. I finished undergrad earlier this year and have had a pretty miserable experience looking for jobs since then, it seems like the good jobs are inaccessible and even the shit jobs require 2-4 years of experience. I've been giving more thought to grad school, probably in something film related (whether it be and MA or MFA). I don't really know where to start looking on which programs would be best, just on a quick glance it seems like Columbia, UCLA, UChicago, and AFI might be good choices for different sorts of film stuff. Does anyone have experience with film-related grad school?

I like the UCLA campus. It's in a nice part of LA. I have no experience with their film program but it's probably very expensive if you live out of state.

Here is a new Film Comment interview with Kevin Brownlow, who recently turned 80 years old. They discuss his narrative films, the difference between making a documentary about an individual and a time period, and finally Brownlow's relationship with with Stanley Kubrick.

https://www.filmcomment.com/blog/interview-kevin-brownlow/

This exchange stood out to me. Brownlow observes that Nazis are always portrayed in films as an over-the-top caricature. That's not historically accurate or informative to the viewer.

<You also did a D.W. Griffith documentary, and now Twilight Time has released a Blu-ray of the Photoplay restoration of The Birth of a Nation, which contains a piece by Patrick Stanbury on the restoration and your plea that we never censor the past. You ran into censorship yourself with It Happened Here, when you recorded the words of contemporary National Socialists in Britain. Distributors and some Jewish groups thought the film could be promoting anti-Semitism.

<Andrew and I felt very strongly that it’s a great mistake to suppress people. The forbidden becomes exciting and very attractive to nutcases. The Nazis certainly revealed themselves to be mental cases and quite terrifying. We couldn’t put the worst of it in. What we did was to try and tell people what National Socialism was. To my knowledge, there isn’t a single feature film made since the War, since the Nazis stopped making propaganda films themselves, that actually tells you what they planned, how they intended to treat people, all those sort of things. That has been taken over by actors frothing at the mouth and screaming against Jews. You see that and you’re supposed to think, “That’s a Nazi for you.” Pure melodrama.

>>10549

The Dumb Girl of Portici was restored and screened last year to much acclaim at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival. Some of its praise is overblown, but the film is worth watching regardless. As time passes there are fewer and fewer new silent film discoveries, so this one is unquestionably significant.

Based on an opera, this major production includes large sets, period costumes, scores of extras, and plenty of action in the final forty minutes. The lead actress is famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova in her only film role. She makes a striking impression with her wild hair and spastic gestures, but ultimately she does not have enough charisma to propel this film to the next level. Granted none of the acting in this film is particularly endearing.

TDGoP was the biggest film directed by a woman at the time -- and for quite a while afterwards -- but I did not detect anything distinctly feminine about Weber's directing choices. So, I don't think "gender identity" is relevant to the substance of this film. If I didn't know the sex of the director I'd assume it was made by a man.

DEADLY BLESSING has one of my favorite horror posters because of the way it mixes fear with eroticism. I wonder the name of the model in the poster. Sharon Stone plays the girl in that scene... it's surprising that her face would be replaced.

The movie is essentially a dumb slasher that takes place around an Amish-like farming community. The concept has potential but the execution is unremarkable. Having seen none of Wes Craven's early films, I assume The Hills Have Eyes and Last House on the Left are better.

Also Mandy.2018.1080p.AMZN.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264-NTG.mkv has hit the web. Maybe some of you guys have seen it already. I'll report back if I get around to watching.

Yeah, it's better than the 5.5 imdb rating. I thought the desolate rural location was pretty cool. Ernest Borgnine puts a surprising amount of effort into his role as the Hittite patriarch, although whenever there's a movie with a ranting cult leader, they usually make the character so malevolent it's hard to believe that he'd have any followers.

ARAYA reminds me of a couple great Japanese films - Woman in the Dunes and The Naked Island. All of these films deal with the topic of repetitive, soulcrushing labor.

The Japs react to these situations with stoicism, while Araya (especially via narration) highlights exasperation and hopelessness. However you have to keep in mind that Araya depicts real human lives and the Japanese films are fictional.

I like that documentary even though I'm slightly annoyed by the director who films every second of his life, personal space of strangers be damned. Is the camera a buffer between him and reality? It's the 80s version of the guy who can't put his phone away and experience life as it is.

Here's a blog translating Raúl Ruiz: Diario. Notas, recuerdos y secuencias de cosas vistas (2017) into English.

Day One; https://tinyletter.com/ruizdiaries/letters/sunday-november-21st-1993-hello-everyone

Sunday November 21st, 1993

Hey! Welcome! I'll be translating the Raúl Ruiz diaries for as long as the copyright people will get to me and sue my ass. In the meantime, enjoy, and if you think that I'm doing a good work with these translations, give up a tip at My Kofi it really helps a lot!

Cafe de la Bastilla. Yesterday I finished writing my first letter in 20 years. Today I start this film diary, the first in 52 years of life. Reasons? None. Something unlocked (Gallicism) in my head. Curiosity to see what happens when one goes back in a moment of day and to calendar (Milanese verb) hour by hour.

Recent reading of the hilarious reading diary by Fozio (Adelphi) and re-reading o so many curious papers (The Unquiet Grave by Connolly, which was just translated to French). Walk through the La Bastilla neighborhood searching for a Japanese restaurant (today is Sunday), meditating about the frontiers of odors. Since a few days I've been trying to orchestrate honeys and vinegars into some crumbs of my invention, more or less inspired in the Bolognese-Chilean recipes by Abate Molina: oseille -coriander juice with hot perfumes: cinnamon, [-], anchovies and tomatoes. Potatoes boiled in chicken broth disengaged with maqui juice. The day before yesterday I mixed capers, truffle oil, saffron pistils and some grains of honey pollen, and the result was dead sparrow feathers. Cooking dishes that remind you of neatly putrid corpses.

Everything freezes in Paris. Passers-by almost run on the streets, frozen: in other words, formulas of domestic economy. Tomorrow by this hour I'll be in Lisbon, preparing Fado, Major and Minor. In two weeks, filming. It's been two years since I last touched 35mm.

Michael Caine teaches acting for an hour

<"The theatre is an operation with the scalpel, i think movie acting is an operation with the laser." Michael Caine teaches in this documentary the art of movie acting to five young actors, who perform scenes from "Alfie", "Deathtrap" and "Educating Rita". He talks about how to perform in close-ups and extreme close-ups. He warns about the continuity dangers of smoking cigarettes or fiddling with props. He talks about screen tests, special effects, men who are cavalier about your safety and speaking to someone who is off camera. The movie camera is your best friend and most attentive lover, he says, even though you invariably ignore her (BBC 1987).

A REVIEW OF CONTEMPORARY MEDIA

Looking at media in its social and political context

Pioneers since 1974, analyzing media in relation to class, race, and gender

Yeah yeah, it sounds like they have a political axe to grind. But it looks like they feature obscure directors and films, so it might be worth checking out.

Interesante, anon, tu dices que es mejor adaptar una historia de un libro, por ejemplo? Estoy remirando muchas películas de Kubrick ultimamente y el era un maestro en hacer eso.

Me gusta leer libros e imaginar como lo podría contar eso en la pantalla, pero también me interesa crear histórias nuevas y originales.

LA adaptación, cuando es leve, loose, puede desembocar en una historia original. Por ejemplo, intentando adaptar un libro en el cual el narrador enuncia explicitamente que el es el creador de los personajes. ¿Cómo traduzco eso a una película?. El intento de traducir la manera en que se da la información en una novela o cuento puede hacerte ver mecanismos formales del lenguaje audiovisual que s epueden usar para contar cosas que no necesariamente tengan que ver con la historia del cuento o novela. Te hacen descubrir maneras, dispositivos, interfaces.

Pensar como se presentan los personajes, que porcentaje de la pelicula se dedica a cada cosa, etc. Por ejemplo, la mitad de la novela que estoy intentando adaptar presenta a los personajes de la siguiente manera: 40% del libro sobre un personaje, 40% sobre el otro (nunca en paralelo, aparecen sucesivos) y el otro 20 es el final en el que se encuentran dentro de la historia. Puedo pensar esa manera de relacionar y presentar personajes porque esa novela me los sugirió. Y no necesariamente usar el contenido de esa novela.

Maybe this will help you, maybe it won't, but I like the idea expressed in this short clip about artistic creativity

>What [the artist] expresses is only what the ordinary people do not hear, feel, or sense as clearly as he does

The first film had me riveted from beginning to end. The second film is one of the few films that had me disturbed and entertained at the same time.

I remember listening to a mixtape with a bunch of uncleared copyright samples. The same track appeared on the official album, but the copyright samples were replaced with something a bit different.

The copyright music was used as an inspiration, but they were phased out when needed. The final product seemed to be completely original.


 No.12811

>>12797

It's not about copyright bots taking it down. It's about commercially distributing a modified version of the work without clearing the copyrights. This includes using video game footage for a machinima film.


 No.12812

Aren't there companies that won't bother you for using their game footage?

Where/how are you going to sell this?
