When Directors talk Sh%t about other Directors over 3 years ago
sorry, i dont have exact quotes in front of me…
cronenberg doesnt hold his tounge.
i dont have exact quotes, but in the 3 books i’ve read on him, hes shitted on M. Night, Spielberg, James Cameron, and Dan Obananon
roman polanski hated on john cassavetes, specifically “faces” when it came out.
there was also a lot that cassavetes hated.
terry gilliam called the dogma movement “shit” or something like that. von trier never responded.
i believe von trier has bad mouthed polanski on quite a few occasions.
tarantino made a comment about david lynch was up his own ass ever since wild at heart came out. which i always found funny because try comparing a lot of shit in wild at heart to true romance. exactly. tarantino needs to shut up.
spike lee hates tyler perry
didnt david gordon green say kevin smiths directing was like watching “the special olympics” or something like that?
speaking of david gordon green, harmony korine once said green’s films are “about nothing” or “nothing happens in his movies”. something along that line.
vincent gallo hates everyone, especially paul schraeder. their whole beef started at sundance in ’98 when gallo showed buffalo 66, and he saw schrader walk out in the middle of the movie.
christopher dolye (the cinemetographer) hates everything, and hes very vocal about scorsese’s work from this past decade.
orson welles hated on clint eastwood once i believe
What films have you walked out on and why ? over 3 years ago
crash – because it was really bad
million dollar baby – because morgan freeman’s character beat up a black guy (i realize he was being a bully) to defend some stupid redneck who called him a nigger at the begining of the movie. classic morgan freeman shit.
hustle & flow – because it wasnt a good movie. predictable. and i still to this day dont get why everyone was so blindly in love with that movie. i eventually got around to watching the whole movie on dvd
godzilla – the one with matthew broderick
that movie where molly shannon’s dog dies and she becomes this crazy animal lover
*i was THIS close to walking out of death proof. a bunch of stupid women talking about NOTHING.

What film scenes really make you cry? about 3 years ago
off the top…
-the burial scene in “time of the wolf”, when the turkish/arab (?) family is crying. their crying and chanting starts to get rhythmic at a certain point
-the end of coup de grace
-the scene in george washington when vernon is in the bathroom with sonya, talking about giving his life to christ and whatnot
-the final scene in the wrestler. the way the music builds up as he climbs the top rope. chokes me up every time.
-the part in happy together when chang gives tony leung the tape recorder to say something in to, and he cant find the words, and starts to break down and tries his hardest not to cry
-the 2nd time bess gets on the boat to go meet with the sadistic sailors in breaking the waves. its like she knows shes going to die.

Ebert's theory - complete bullshit? over 2 years ago
@ lord quas…“90-95% of rap is crap (maybe even more), not many will argue that”
lol, id argue that.
i assume you mean 90-95% of TODAY’S rap is crap (i hope so). i can see why someone would say that, but even a cynic like me (especially towards hip-hop) wouldnt say 90-95% of rap is crap. if your a fan of illmatic and madlib (which i assume based on ur profile name & picture), im sure there’s plenty of hip-hop out there today that you’d like. illmatic and madlibs music arent exactly worlds apart, but they dont exactly fall in to the same category either. there’s a lot of great stuff that go in between nas and madlib.
Ebert's theory - complete bullshit? over 2 years ago
@ lord quas
i hear ya, but thats kinda what im saying 18.98 gigs is a lot of music (although how does 2,600 songs = almost 19 gigs? dont 4gb nano’s usually hold up 2,000 at most?). But still, im willing to bet theres is still plenty of undiscovered rap/hip-hop out there that ud love, which makes up WAY more than 5-10% rap thats supposedly good.
its just that of all the music genres that were mentioned in this thread, ‘sturgeons law’ was only applied to rap music and nothing else (unless i missed something).
and another thing (this isnt directed at you, quas), why is little wayne the go-to guy/poster child to represent rap these days? its like whenever someone wants to try and convey that rap/hip-hop in general is “simple” a musical genre, that doesnt take much talent they reference some little wayne lyric or post a picture of him as if to say he represents the majority of rap music?
