Because POV perspective can be destabilizing and overwhelming. That movie breaks several molds amd was probably hard to film. If you'd stuck around to meet Sharlto Copley's (the guy from District 9) character, that scene is just pretty impressive. The cut-offs are neatly done, especially in that scene. But I get it. POV is not easy to watch. Maybe I've seen too many movies and am more attracted to films that stick out and are out of the ordinary. Also helps that I used to game A LOT and am used to POV.

Your youtube comment belies a limited understanding of cinematography. That film is actually quite the opposite. Very hard to plan and film. Almost as hard as planning all those angled perspective (Ames room) scenes in the Hobbit and LOTR trilogies.

The best action movie since the 80s is Mad Max Fury Road

hearing good things about the new Apes movie. Still haven't watched any of the new ones. Except the new-ish Burton one which I actually liked. I know it got a lot of hate. I haven't seen it since it originally went to video but I liked it.

The first one with Franco was good but nor great. Dawn was meh. The new one haven't seen yet. But none of them are as good as the original movies, except the one with the mutant telepath remnants of hunanity, that one sucked.

I really liked the Burton flick. Wish there was a sequel to that one.

Well, Better call Saul ended kinda badly. Poor old Chuck finally lost it, in a big way it looks like.

Haven't seen the last two episodes yet, so don't know what happems with either Chuck or Salamanca. The high point of the seasin so far was definitely the court episode.

I feel no sympathy for him at all. Trying to ruin Jimmy's life and using Howard to do it. He's no different than Hector Salamanca when you think about it. Throwing away his allies because of pride.

The show does a nice job showing parralels between characters of different arcs. Jimmy and Gus who will stop at nothing for their personal gain. Chuck and Hector who's pride ends up being their undoing. Howard and Nacho who've been disrespected by those who they looked up to.

And Mike and Kim both righteous and loyal no non-sense types who are very methodical and pragmatic in their ways.

Yes exactly. HHM and Nacho's father are also the same as Nacho and Howard sacrifice themselves to protect them. The writing in this show is terrific and its too bad that its ratings are suffering because of how slow it is. Can't wait till next season.

Miller's Crossing: 6.8/10

Love Exposure: 6/10 Take the stupid story of Old boy, remove the good actions scenes and spread that messy story on nearly 4 hours and you get Love Exposure.

Hard to say if it's better than Snowpiercer and The Dark Knight.

Was a bit disappointed with this season of Fargo. It seemed like it was all over the place and lacked something from previous years. I liked Carrie Coon though. Maybe it's time to call it quits.

Did not watch the TV show but doesn't matter how good or bad it is they'll never top that legendary scene from the movie

Just finished the latest House of Cards season. What a weird cluster**** this has turned into. I mean after all of that, no one would ever vote for the Democrats again.

Same reaction. The storyline wasn't as neatly bundled and tight as the first two seasons. It's always tough to try and follow up two great seasons of anything. I couldn't get into the idea of McGregor playing two roles. And some of the supporting characters were eminently forgettable. Yeah, time to move on.

Speaking of politics, anyone here watches Scandal ?
I've always liked the show overall, but Season VI...so well written !!!

It was a wild ride. So wild that it seemed more realistic than the reality of US politics

Okja: 7/10

Pretty entertaining at times. I rarely say this but Jake Jake Gyllenhaal has the worst performance in this movie.

Looks like it's a winner. Great cast and I'm a big fan of Nicole.

Snowpiercer? That movie was so ridiculous I was always expecting a guy dressed in an elephant suit to come out and explain why the whole thing was a joke.

The Dark Knight was good.
