Re: Movies/scenes that make you sympathise with the bad guy

Why don't we just go to the tape, Larry? XYvay98huTY Presented with the problem of Felicia's meddling, Sukie suggests they simply stop having sex for a while . Darryl cannot abide this, so he instead manipulates them, or more precisely, Jane, into helping cause Felicia's death, completely without th...

Re: Movies/scenes that make you sympathise with the bad guy

It was a deliberately skewed and limited reading, like yours. Because of course you completely ignored the part about your entire argument being based on fabrications and/or snoozing. I repeat: Since I wrote the above, I have viewed The Witches of Eastwick , and I can say your characterization of it...

Meta-documentaries/documentaries about documentaries

https://www.criticker.com/films/?filter=e73888 Documentaries that explore the form itself ( Chronicle of a Summer ) or are about documentary filmmakers or movements ( Capturing Reality ). I consider the first kind to include F for Fake and probably some other game-like efforts. Now the question is, ...

Re: Movies/scenes that make you sympathise with the bad guy

I'm not insisting on anything. Rather, it's very telling on what characters get moralistically punished in stories and which ones don't. Movies have messages and ideas. You just have to watch and pay attention. This is disingenuous. You are not merely providing a reading, but also a strong value ju...

Re: Spam collections

You might want to add captcha verification when creating new collections. If you add captchas, please show them only to new/untrusted accounts. Fair enough, but do you really make that many collections regularly? For me it's once in awhile, a captcha wouldn't bother me. I think it is safe to say th...

Re: Guess the movie from the image

Good point. I haven't seen it but I already feel like I saw it in 2008 and forgot about it.

Re: Guess the movie from the image

Am I missing something or did you guys not see that he said it's a 2000-2009 film?

I am of course technically barred from guessing until he posts another picture but my next guess would be a film about a certain British fornicator who occasionally dabbles in espionage

Filtering by filmmaker - identical names

It seems that if I am trying to filter by a filmmaker who shares their name with another filmmaker in the database, I cannot filter by both names, only one. For example, there are two Richard Kellys that show up: the director of Donnie Darko , and someone who worked on a Dogme95 documentary. No matt...

Re: The extended location mislead (thriller version)

Textbook example in s2e2 of Prison Break. We cut between the Prison Breaker-Outers seeing to their storage locker stash and the cops closing in on them until, well, y'know They went for it again! Well, in the sequel series. And to their credit, they throw a wrinkle or two into it. Actual human doub...
