Best Picture 2022 – Calendar Man
Was my first exposure to Phoenix and I thought this guy is either really high or kind of hilariously into it. He even tried to stick his tongue out at one point and I was like, oooh someone saw a statue in Italy and got an idea
It's assumed by some that the subject matter- a white man with mental issues being bullied and not being given help by society before turning to harming innocents instead of seeking help himself- might inspire the alt-right in some manner, or that it might be used to try to recruit young men to the alt-right.
yeah but the tone of this thead this is a total 180 from the reactions in the script leak topic
tbh i don't really begrudge ppl from making assessments given the material available. i just think the idea that 'alt right incels' would feel more energized/culturally influenced by a movie about a comic villain than the literal leader of the free world openly courting that same demographic reeks ass of similar PMRC/CCA hysteria
This.It's assumed by some that the subject matter- a white man with mental issues being bullied and not being given help by society before turning to harming innocents instead of seeking help himself- might inspire the alt-right in some manner, or that it might be used to try to recruit young men to the alt-right.
... but realistically, the alt-right (the alt-light in particular) does this with every piece of remotely popular media that can be implied to apply to their world view at some point in the story. So unless the film objectively portrays the Joker as spouting blatant white nationalist talking points and implies he is completely in the right to do so, there's really nothing to worry about. And it doesn't seem like that's even remotely the case.
How many indications that is a masterpieces do you need?
Generally watching it yourself and making your own opinion on it? I'm amazed so many people in this thread calling it a masterpiece has already seen the movie.
you are saying this on a video game fourm of all places. Where the biggest thread here are reviews threads in no one has played the game.
By all accounts, Black Panther should have been considered a masterpiece with it's high metacritic/tomatometer/reviews/award nominations. But did most here think it was?
I think it could be argued that the worst aspect of the leak wasn't actually in the film. Outside of that I feel like the whole 'discussion' is focused on an extreme view that not many people hold in the idea that the movie's going to start mass shootings and I don't think anybody here's suggest it should be banned. By far the most upset individuals are coming off as those who oppose criticism of films based around the time of their release, e.g. someone might not enjoy the movie due to them seeing it as being sympathetic towards incels, which could be a fair criticism that others look over even if it's certainly not the mainstream one. It seems silly to shoot down any criticism before the film sees a wider release and that's what I read a lot of the Joker topics as mostly being.
Not saying that winning the big award at any festival (no matter how big) translates to anyone finding a specific film good (something that very well applies to "top critics on Rotten Tomatoes" consensus as well), but trying to downplay the status and importance of the Venice Film Festival is extremely silly.
In other words the movie is already daMAGing American society. And it's not even out yet.
BR2049 is one of my favorite movies of all time but Leto was the weakest link in the movie imo.
