Another film thread: insignificant things you like in films


#1

I like opening credits sequences - no idea why. The longer and more boring the better.


#2

When you hear a song you didnt expect in it

Fun With dick and Jane has Time Bomb by Rancid in it


#3

custard pie fight


#4

When the aspect ratio changes - that lets me know that the director cares about the aspect ratio, and is therefore a Serious Artist.


#5

I tell you what I hate. The three minutes before the opening credit sequences. Made in association with this and that, some twat boy fishing off a cloud etc. Wank.


#6

An overture.


#7

it all being in foreign and there are subtitles but I don't use them because I probably understand the foreign


#8

That can be shit, but sometimes goes on that long (with about 8 production companies) that it becomes amusing.


#9

If the actors are halfway talented you shouldn't need the subtitles anyway, it should be apparent through the tone that the main character is having an affair with his wife's aunt.


#10

It's always silent though and I'm always wondering if I have turned my soundbar (eh ant?) on to the right source etc.


#11

I think there's a joke about them in the Lego Batman movie. I'm sure you'll enjoy that.


#12

I was going to post this

On modern films there seem to go on forever - each with a fancier animation from the last

WE DON'T CARE


#13

We are going to see it when it comes onto mini-mornings. I will get back to you in a few month.s


#14

Was going to say, it's good when they do something different with the logos, like in Waterworld where the Universal earth logo gets covered in water (Waterworld takes place on a version of earth covered in water).


#15

I like it when people retaliate, don't like it when people rise above it


#16

They picked a good name for it then.


#17

Unfortunately the film itself was poorly received by critics.


#18

Waterworld to have a good time.


#19

i'd like to think when global warming catches up with us we change the name from earth to waterworld


#20

Things like this:

The opening to Schindler's List where Oskar is doing cufflinks / attaching his lapel badge / counting out money / shining his shoes.

The sound of footsteps walking down a corridor

The way Michael Corleone sits in an arm chair, one leg crossed over the knee of the other.

Decent cooking in films - the sound of frying rice in Empire of the Sun / Cooking pasta sauce in Goodfellas

That kind of thing.
