The punchline at 16:15

You'll have to watch it to find out, hahaha

Attacking Porkins' sacrifice was a low blow!

In all seriousness, that was a really interesting video.

God, I hadn't realized the amount of shaky cam usage JJ indulges in.

BTW, the punchline at the end was pretty good.

I'm pretty sure this is a factory that produces sparks

If he employs that in these movies I might find my own bounty hunter and put a contract on JJ's head.

Wow. I've always wanted to see someone really breakdown Abrams' style, and this guy does an incredible job. Just so cool and informative to see. Also, the narrator has kind of a weird delivery/voice, but his humor is pretty great. Actually laughed out loud a couple of times during this...


Wish he could have taken a bit more of a look at the clips we did have and dissect them the way he did Star Trek and Mission Impossible. Otherwise an enjoyable video even if most of the stuff he took issue with didn't bother me as much (though I can see why they can be movie cinematography sins)

How the movie is shot is one of the big question marks, I think. Has JJ said anything about keeping the filming style, the wipes, etc.?

Saw the trailer for the first time today on the big screen before ant- man and it was glorious. It just makes me even more excited thinking that in five months, TFA will be here.

From some of his commentary, JJ is at least self-aware of some criticisms revolving around lens flare, etc, so I would like to think he will tone it back some and be better here. While I think he will certainly have some of that, I don't expect it to be overboard like it was in some of his past movies.

It never bothered me too much in his past movies, but I can see how some don't like it.

Lens flare doesn't bother me. But I know plenty of people, my father included, who get bad headaches when trying to watch movies filmed with too much shaky cam.

If anything that was my biggest takeaway that he can take constructive criticism and realize when some shots don't turn out as well as he hoped

Didn't he dial it way back in Star Trek 2 after some criticism?

The lens flare hate has always been overplayed.

I think so. But as that video said, there was so much visual bull**** at other times in the movie too.

The visual bull**** is what gets me. The example they used of the ship firing on the star fleet board meeting was a great example, who the hell knows what happened??? No one because it was such a gawd-awful mess!

Finally watched this, really interesting stuff.

I have a few nitpicks with his critique, particularly the opening sequence to MI3. I can see how one might have an issue with the closeups, though I kind of saw it as this interpretation of Ethan Hunt's "personal" world where he's playing more of a character in this party environment where he really doesn't fit in, vs the real world he operates in as an agent. The other closeups later on in the film are certainly overused, however.

Also, Alice Eve...wow.

I can't keep all of my threads straight but I think we talked about John Williams on here. I just went and checked out his resume because I've never really looked at it. Holy sh^t.

That guy is the alpha and omega of film music.

Followed closely by James Horner (RIP), Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, etc.

Tuesday morning at 2:30am there's a replay of Great Performances where the LA philharmonic plays John Williams music, if interested.

Was gonna make a similar post. There's people behind Williams, but nobody is a close second.

quote:
Williams has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, and 22 Grammy Awards. With 49 Academy Award nominations, Williams is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney.

I hesitate to call this news, but I know there have been rumors of a Star Wars based Netflix series. However, this is the first bit that I have read about possibly multiple series.

Dear Santa,

I promise I will never, ever, ever ask for anything ever again if you give me an X-wing series.

Need a drama/action rogue squadron series, then spin off a more lighthearted wraith squadron series.

Money, not credits. Republic credits aren't good out here. I haven't actually seen that on a shirt though.

Edit because I can't spell apparently....
