New Spongebob movie is coming out in a week. I hope it's great and they continue the spongebob legacy with dignity. If it's gonna suck, it will be another childhood favorite ruined by a modern movie. Just like TMNT last year.

Not sold on the 3D animation... Would have preferred they stuck to toon like the OG spongebob movie. I won't pass judgement until it's released though...

Fritz the Cat and its sequel are two of the strangest pieces of animation i've ever watched.

to imagine the same guy led the way for the LOTR animation a mere five-ish years later is really intriguing...

talk about your 180's.

^ Honestly though incomplete, Ive always preferred Bakshi's interpretation to Jackson's. The characters just seem...more authentic?

 

I mean seriously...this guy

Versus this...

No Brainer for me...

 

this was one was the most disappointing...some seem influenced by Bakshi's model...

Dope video! Also if you have the criterions of Kurosawa check out the commentary. I've only checked out the commentary to Rashomon but it's really interesting. It's a film essayist talking about Kurosawa's framing and usage of triangles. I need to check out more commentaries on more of his films lol, been slacking.

Yes!!!....the cinematographer talking about the long shot of shimura in the beginning is so GOLD. The cinematographer who worked a lot with tarkovsky has some good commentary too. Some of the best I heard was on some of the Ozu films. Just anecdotes about his brilliant quirks and precision. 

 

edit: actually these may have just been thoughts pertaining to documentary featurettes on the discs but irregardless,  got to respect the criterion gems...

I seriously need to check out the special features more on all the criterions. Criterion always spoils you when it comes to special features, and I rarely ever check them out lol

Ozu was a genius too. There are still so many Ozu films I need to see though. His camerawork was very subtle but so precise like a surgeon. He could break the so called 180 degree rule, and make every shot flow so smoothly. Even when images clashed there was so much poetry to it. I recently started checking out Kenji Mizoguchi's films too. I've always heard he was one of the Japanese masters but had never seen any of his films up until recently.

Mizoguchi is excellent and he made soooooooo many films....Im sure you've heard of him but if you haven't check out Masaki Kobayashi's work as well...it sad how little most film students I come across know about Japanese film...

Yeah I've been wanting to check out his films for a while too. Namely The Human Condition, Kwaidan, and especially Harakiri. I have Harakiri on criterion, but I haven't seen it yet.

It's weird, the only time I ever hear film students talking about Japanese film is when it's about like shock horror/body mutilation flicks like Takashi Miike films and the like. Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against Miike. But I'm just surprised that most people I encounter would rather watch Ichi the Killer or Audition over Seven Samurai or Throne of Blood.

They just have no clue...I empathize with not having the attention span for a 6 hr movie...but its literally one of the greatest films ever made...and Hari-Kiri is so brilliant...solidified Nakadai in my top 5 thespians...

They def don't have a clue lol. I'm not that familiar with Nakadai outside of his work with Kurosawa. But he's always great in all of his efforts with Kurosawa. Looking forward to seeing him in Harakiri. I also love Toshiro Mifune. He was capable of playing it anywhere on the spectrum. He could go waaaaay over the top, or play it subtle. I love how he played Macbeth. It was so over the top but without being silly or laughable. Then he was great playing it subtle too with roles like in The Bad Sleep Well and High and Low

It's too bad Mifune and Kurosawa had a falling out. It would have been great to see Mifune in Ran.
