Another film thread: insignificant things you like in films


#41

The absence of Tom Hanks


#42

Yes. And Scott Pilgrim.


#43

So many good scenes in AFGM.
I like it when Markinson is shown putting on and arranging his dress uniform before he tops himself


#44

it’s a fucking good film


#45

Dinner L-P?
(it’s about time I reckon)


#46

i think it is :slight_smile:


#47

Love the ‘cooking in prison’ bit in Goodfellas! Also like the weird way Robert DeNiro pours the ketchup when they all go round to Martin Scorsese’s Mum’s house for dinner


#48

great scene


#49

remember when cinema screens had curtains? and they’d close and reopen after the trailers?

no neither do I because I’m young.

(do really - Noah? Balonz? Theo?)

I actually quite like the pre-credit production blurb thingsl. I enjoy guessing what the company is before their name pops up.


#51

I like tapping the universal or 20th century fox themes on my gf’s arm, very slightly out of time with the film. She finds it bloody charming and hilarious, to boot


#52

I hope she knows how lucky she is.


#53

So do I


#54

I like it when a character gets their hair shaved off and it’s being done to the actor for real. The only good thing about Batlad vs Superlad.


#55

Possibly never felt sadder about being single than I do after reading that


#56

Hell yeah
The Odeon and the ABC in Derby both had those. Other features of cinema going back in the day:

  • smokers being required to sit to the left of the auditorium
  • supporting pictures
  • interminable ads (often for local businesses) with a break for refreshments before the main feature
  • double bills
  • a woman walking up the aisle selling ice creams, popcorn and Kiora from a tray hanging round her neck
  • usherettes with torches who showed you to your seat

Don’t look where I’m pointing!

Guys, this is SO FUNNY.

I was thinking of starting a thread called “what’s your favourite film production company ident?”

I think mine’s either Aardman or Pathe. Or BFI. Or Film Four.
