Hey, are you a film nerd? Me too! Let’s geek out about films!
Idk if this is the proper place, but it seems as good a place as any. I went and saw In The Fade yesterday, I thought the first 2 acts were stunning and it was poised to become my favorite film of 2017... but man did that last act miss the mark for me. I got why they went that way, but it just felt so different from the rest of the film it was jarring and took me out of it.
So what are you thinking for this thread Dark?
I want a place where we can geek out about film stuff, like screenplays or cinematography for example, while exposing each other to films we may of missed or didn’t know about. Like I genuinely love talking about film with people on here so I figured we’d have a place to share that love together.
@Dog with a Blog, I know this a place for you.
Jason posted this in another thread, but I feel like it belongs here. God I hope this comes to L.A. Would be a dream come true.
Warner Bros. Pictures Celebrates 50 Years of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey
I love that Nolan and Warner Bros. is doing that, 2001 is definitely something that 70mm is made for and it’s really cool that they’re showing it on film.

This should also be of interest!
Saw A Quiet Place, the sound design was unreal.
I love film. I mean, I love it.
is this an episode of I Love Films?
I’ve been on something of a hiatus from serious film for about a year and a half now because I’ve needed only mindless escapes, but I’m finally back to a place where I can actively engage with film and I figured what better way to resume my passion for film than with a Bergman marathon (and a subscription to Filmstruck)? I watched The Virgin Spring a few nights ago, and then Fanny and Alexander two days ago, which immediately became an all time favorite. Absolute magic, and it ended up being EXACTLY what I’ve been in need of for that last year and a half. I’ll be watching Winter Light tonight, and then hopefully I’ll get around to rewatching a Wild Strawberries soon!
I’ve asked around, but any recommendations for film sites, magazines, or podcasts would be appreciated. I’m a fan of Reverse Shot and Filmspotting.
We’re not talking about movies. We’re talking about films. Like The Godfather and Citizen Kane.
