Discussion Nine years ago today, we lost Philip Seymour Hoffman. Which was your favourite performance of his?

4.2k Upvotes

Nine years ago today, on February 2, 2014, we lost one of his generations greatest actors, Philip Seymour Hoffman. In remembrance of his genius, which of his role was your favourite? Which role showed most of his acting talent? What do you remember, when you think of his acting?

It was hardly his most famous or best role, but I loved him in Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as the ruthless game master. It may have been one of my earliest exposures to him and his acting deeply impressed me.

Discussion What is the oldest movie you know that doesn't feel old?

605 Upvotes

When I was a kid, I thought that old, black and white films were not worth my time because they felt dated.

Now, many years later I have seen many oldies and realised that many of then don't feel old at all. Case in point: yesterday i have seen "Rear Window" and thought how modern it feels like. And then in last minutes, when the speeded up sequence hits: yeah it's an old movie.

What guys is your take?

Discussion What song and movie are permanently linked in your mind?

928 Upvotes

I was at work the other day and heard The Ronettes - Be My Baby, which made me immediately think of the movie Barbarian because of its incredibly effective use as end-credits music for the film.

What songs and movies are linked permanently in your mind?

Edit: Pixies - "Where is My Mind" / Fight Club is the winner by a large margin. Whoever did the soundtrack for Fight Club got it right.

Recommendation People have forgotten that Kevin Costner was once one of the biggest movie stars of all time.

Upvotes

Late 80s to mid 90s, he starred in a slew of great films. Silverado, No Way Out, Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, JFK, The Untouchables, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, A Perfect World, The War, Tin Cup, The Bodyguard. Not to mention Dances with Wolves which grossed $424 million. Inflation adjusted, that is $900 million in today's money. Not bad for a first feature.

Glad he is doing well on a Western show. It really suits him to a tee.

Review The end of The Witches of Eastwick (1987) has one of the best and most terrifying FX scenes of all time.

15 Upvotes

This is a really short but effective scene that scared the hell out of when I was a kid. Jack Nicholson's transformation is scary as hell, even his small remain that floats aftermath, and the subsequent vanishing look great

Around minute 2:30:

Even today 35 years later it holds on, and I am not even sure what we are looking at. I guess it is practical effects? I don't think CGI was that advanced in 1987

Question Films with a passive main character?

35 Upvotes

Looking for films with passive main characters, those who don't take decisions that advance the plot - but rather just exist and things happen to them and around them. Preferably ones where the character doesn't even end up becoming more active towards the end of the film.

I know that these types of films aren't really popular, so I'm expecting more niche films. Totally fine with arthouse, non-English, old films - anything really.

Discussion We need a zombie movie shot in the same style as 1917.

1.1k Upvotes

How amazing would a zombie where it follows characters around with the full length single take style seen in movies like Birdman, 1917, and One Cut of the Dead be? I always find the sheer terror and chaos that the characters experience as they navigate the breakdown of society from ground zero incredibly interesting, and would love to see a movie that takes place entirely during the time frame that the apocalyptic event begins.

Movies in this genre show glimpses of this but then mostly deal with how the survivors interact with other survivors to slowly reveal that mankind is just as dangerous. I want to see the opening scene of 2004’s Dawn of the Dead or the first 20 minutes of Episode 1 The Last Of Us for a full 2 hours in one long tracking shot. The one hurdle is that the movie could feel too much like a video game, but damn, I hope that someone later on down the line can create a movie like this.
