Who Are The Greatest Directors Not in the IMDb Top 250? (General Discussion)
John Dumbearlast splashI love Election but I don't like Sideways. Too smug.If anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any fucking Merlot!
last splashI love Election but I don't like Sideways. Too smug.
John Dumbearjasper de largeAlexander Payne is another great one. A 7.5 for "Sideways" is underrating criminally. It belongs in the top 100 probably.Love all his work. He can do no wrong. Sideways, Election, Nebraska, About Schmidt, The Descendants and Citizen Ruth are brilliantly written, low brow humor. Can't wait for "Downsizing" this winter.How the fuck is he not in the top 250?

Simon WilliamsSnookered by the hype and war film fandom, ducats were placed on counter, a ticket for admission passed back. Lights dimmed, anticipation mounted, and... nothing. Nothing. Save lurching between disparate, battle set pieces featuring people for whom little or no empathy exists. Lacking investment in the characters, what remains are merely adequate, bloodless war scenes easily outgunned by the recent "Fury" and, farther back, "Saving Private Ryan." For example, a young boy is killed but we know nothing of him, nothing of his motivation for climbing aboard a civilian, Dunkirk-bound boat at the last minute. We feel nothing for him because he's simply a cardboard cutout. (1)As the actors barely register emotion, boredom set in and not to be shaken off. The characters move as wind-up toys. There are few actors who bare their soul like Cillian Murphy, here a shell-shocked survivor. As directed, he sleepwalks with the depth of an amateur in a high school production. He's not alone. All the actors turn in measured performances with identical blank looks and monotone deliveries. Particularly wasted is the actor's actor, Kenneth Branagh.(2)

Mummy 2017 Is not Terrible (General Discussion)
Matt NorcrossThe 1999 version of The Mummy will always be better. Especially because of the Universal Studios attraction it inspired... Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride. Google it.
MGD2[font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Well God bless the queen and country. What a sanitized war film. Only Once did the German planes bombing and strafe the beach over a week period. B.S., 1 spitfire with only 40 mins of fuel managed to shoot down 3 me109s, 3 Hinkle bombers, and while[/font][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]coasting with his engine out of fuel shoot down a stuka dive bomber... common. Historical photographs show the beach crammed with 1000s of abandoned equip. Tanks, trucks, artillery pieces, etc. in the movie nothing. Not even a burning truck. I felt the movie was pretty much a tribute to the glory of the British Empire, but historically white washed.[/font][/font][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Yes, bad cinema any way you see it.[/font][/font]
