I think some directors or producers out there genuinely think that 3D is essential to the movie experience...

Yeah... 3D is never essential. Can it enhance? Sure, but a movie should stand on its own with or without it. If a film entirely relies on 3D *coughTroncough* then it shows.

Agreed. Avatar is a great cinema experience, but when I saw it on DVD the flaws in structure are more glaring. The experience was way less cool. That should never happen in transfer.

I love how a news story about 3D porn immediately sparked a discussion on the artistic merits of 3D.

Bump.

So I after seeing Hanna last weekend, there's been one element of the movie that was one my mind: the film score. This came up in the unpopular opinion thread, and I should say that I can see more films using electronic artists to film scores after Daft Punk with Tron Legacy and The Chemical Brothers with Hanna. The same also goes for industrial artists after Trent Reznor's oscar-winning score with The Social Network. I, for one, would love for that to happen.

Yeah, I enjoyed the score, even thought about downloading it from Amazon or something if it was decently priced, but they didn't have it.

Did you guys like the film too? Would you recommend it or just the score?

Oh yeah, I enjoyed the film quite a lot actually. Maybe my favorite film of the year thus far, truthfully, was kind of taken by surprise at how much I liked it. I'm not sure how I felt about the ending, though, still kind of processing it.

I'd love to see a Frozone spin off set in the 70s. A Pixar Blaxploitation Superhero movie. One can dream

Disney is way too cautious to do anything remotely resembling blaxploitation, but I would be all over that movie

Watched Donnie Brasco. I really liked it. And Depp doesn't get enough credit for it. He's known for playing the eccentric. As much as I love him in those roles, he's so good in stuff like this. He's still unrecognizable too. He sounded just like Pistone.

Yeah, it was good to see him out of his Gothic Burtonian (Burtonesque?) comfort zone and not buried under tons of make up and eyeliner.
But Pacino was so amazing (was it his last great role?) in DB that he made everyone around him a little transparent.

Speaking of Depp who was rumored to play the part at some point, I'd like to see a Charles Manson movie. I know there's been TV movies, but I'm talking a Zodiac style take on the whole story.
I think Emile Hirsch could pull off an interesting Manson. Prosecutor Bugliosi could be played by Di Caprio. And Jason Schwarzman could be Polanski.
The dark side of the Flower Power.

Just watched a couple of great Anthony Perkins movies lately, pre-Psycho. It's interesting how The Hitchcock movie changed his life and career path forever. The role was kind of a blessing and a curse, because it sort of derailed his leading man career and he was labeled as Norman, but at the same times, Bates is also one the greatest cinematic villains and characters in general.
I also love how Hitchcock deviated from the book, where Norman is a fat, middle-aged man and chose Perkins instead. Great casting decision.

I haven't seen the Daredevil's director cut. What's the difference with the theatrical one?
