I’ve wanted to see a lot of those for a long time, Dek. Amadeus is an all-time favorite, and I’m glad you managed to see the theatrical version.

Yesterday I watched:

Really messy movie. It tries to be comedic and clever but often fails and often doesn’t make much sense. Really disappointing considering the talent involved.


Of all the classic Hollywood directors they could have chosen to direct this film, Vincente Minnelli was the one that makes the absolute most sense. No matter what the content, all of his movies have fantastic, dreamlike visuals, so to direct a movie about a painter who often evokes the fantastic and the dreamlike, well, it’s a perfect fit.

I would definitely recomend finding Havana and Angels if you haven’t seen those ones. Havana has a magnificent depth to every shot, which is impressive considering it’s mostly dudes talkin to eachother.

Yeah, like many others, I think the DC is too long and the nude scene sucks. I got ahold of a certain someone’s OT.com project to finally watch the theatrical cut and it was much better! Quite a classic.

Rating things on a scale of 1 to 4 confuses me.

Why?

It seems arbitrary. I also think it leaves little room for fine nuances. Like, if you think about a percentage scale, one star is the difference between an A+ (100%) and a C (75%). I don’t like ratings at all, though and I tend to think that they’re all a bit arbitrary. What’s the difference between a 99 and a 100? Or a 3.1 and a 3.2? I much prefer people just concisely state what they like or didn’t like about a film and whether they consider it good or not. That’s much more useful.

Yeah, I can’t stand four point ratings. With five points, it can be broken down as:

  1. Hated
  2. Disliked
  3. Liked/Decent
  4. Really liked
  5. Loved

With four points there’s no middle ground and so I can’t parse them properly.

Help back OMNO!

Two stars is half way. And I’ve considered using zero stars rendering it as effectively five stars, though I’ve never done that.

Then two stars isn’t halfway.

4 / 2 = 2

Take it to the out of context thread.

Or the irrelevant thread, if you prefer.

How is that irrelevant? Two is exactly, irrefutably half of four.

What do you guys not understand about this?

If you don’t use zero it is.

0 1 2 3 4

1 2 3 4

In only one case is 2 halfway, and it’s not the one without a zero.

If you’re just screwing around, save me the time and just say so. Otherwise, read these posts again.
