    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Nothing to do with me personally. I'm not personally offended. I am merely commenting on your criticism of seconds of out of context footage. It's not even a movie I like. And I'd criticise exactly the same way if it was not you but own brother writing those words. You could level the same accusations at a similar amount of footage from speed racer, or dick Tracy, or batman, or matrix or lion king or any number of movies that choose style over reality. Fair enough if you don't like the style, but you cannot comment as to whether it works or doesn't work or is good or not until you've seen it within context Imagine judging the VFX work of shaolin soccer based on clips

    Let me know when you've seen it in context. Although I'm sure you'll double down.

    I have seen the piece of CGI in context, you haven't. Yet you seem to think our opinions of the piece of CGI should have equal bearing. This is a particular Smitty trait

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    It's not needlessly personal when I am addressing a person. In this instance I am addressing a person. You have a habit of criticising an in context experience out of context. You are known for it. That's fine. You are welcome to criticise something out of context, and describe your relationship with that experience not within the context it is meant to be experienced. But from the perspective of people who have experienced the same elements within context, it consistently makes you look ignorant. The reason this is personal to you is because you are the forum member more than any other who does this. The only thing I am suggesting is that your criticism lacks credibility because it regularly refuses to consider context. Within the context of the new Jurassic World movie, the VFX are consistent with the reality they are portraying. It is a horrible movie on many fronts, but I doubt you'd find many credible pundits who would argue against the VFX design

    Nope. Film = garbage? Yes. That shot, stunning

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Once you've seen the film we can have an actual in the scene discussion A vfx shot only has to work in the context of the scene immediately before it and the scene immediately following it. It does not need to work in a photorealistic context between BBC news and the latest episode of Glow. Your context on the media arts has been wrong for years. Which is why your reviews of media you haven't consumed within context has been consistently embarrassing

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    So interestingly, I think this movie is well within the 50 worst movies I've ever seen. Right up there with the incredible melting man, 2012 and Moulin rouge. It's pure garbage. However, the FX are genuinely out of this world next level insanely incredible. The post team deserve an Oscar
  8. My mate Luke was the DOP on this. Apparently they're already prepping the sequel. Which is set in Hong Kong. It's the new franchise we didn't know we needed

    M Night Shyamalan's Glass (2019)

    And boy did he use that privilege to make some utter shit. Oh, and Blade Runner is rubbish. As I may have mentioned. You should have said the Duellists

    I asked a question and you responded by being a twat. Nice one.

    M Night Shyamalan's Glass (2019)

    I think that's a little cheap. I was simply referring to M Nights hit ratio in the last 15 years. Split is the first entertaining movie he's made since Signs. I LOVED Unbreakable (Hell, I worked on it. Sorry, couldn't help that one) and I really enjoyed Split, so i'm a cheerleader for this. I just don't have a lot of faith. It feels like cynical marketing opportunity to me rather than clever foreshadowing.

    Does anyone really think this is going to be any good?

    Sicario 2: Soldado

    Sicario 2 is sequel done right. It expands on the lore of the world, deepens the characters and ups the stakes. This is no cynical cash in. Even without Blunt, Villeneuve or Deakins this still manages to be a better film than its predecessor. Mature, intense and emotive. It can't quite hold its brilliance to the end, which is a real shame, but Soldado is a grown up testosterone thriller like we used to get. Narcos, City of God, Elite Squad, Sin Nombre, Sicario... I could watch Cartel Thrillers all funcking day ese.
