Paul Thomas Anderson / Re: Has anyone here ever met PTA? Tell us your stories....

I thought his attitude to his fans was incredibly rude. His films are great, but they don't ever make a profit yet he still does personal art films at medium sized budgets thanks to his hardcore devotees. The dude is so dismissive and can't even look his fans in the eye. Made me lose a little respect for him honestly.

i promoted him pretty heavily on here in my hyper douchey era circa 2004. i stumbled upon crimewave because the coens made an equally bizarre film of the same title that no one really talks about.
A lot late to the show, sure, but :saywhat:.

Phantom Thread

Regarding the score.

“We talked a lot about ‘50s music, what was popularly heard then as well as what was being written and recorded,” Greenwood tells Variety. “Nelson Riddle and Glenn Gould’s Bach recordings were the main references. I was interested in the kind of jazz records that toyed with incorporating big string sections, Ben Webster made some good ones, and focus on what the strings were doing rather than the jazz musicians themselves.”

Guessing there is a great PTA interview coming up on the Channel 33 podcast as host Sean Fennessey (a legit PTA-head) tweeted a photo of the two of them recently. 👌🏻

There Will Be Greenwood: The Radiohead Rocker on Scoring ‘Phantom Thread’

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/jonny-greenwood-radiohead-phantom-thread-1202636131/

Greenwood reasoned that if Reynolds listened to music, it would have been Gould. “Lots of slightly obsessive, minimal baroque music,” says Greenwood of the sound the picture called for.

Quote
All told, some 90 minutes of music ended up in the final cut. Says Greenwood: “When I told [this to] Robert Ziegler, who conducted the score, he said, ‘That’s not a soundtrack, that’s a musical!’

The Vault / Re: Jurassic World

Sorry for double post, but to expand on the above, it's a really badly-cut trailer. Even bad movies can have good trailers. This trailer is bad. Key example - the "save" by T-rex mid-way through. Yeah, it's predictable and been done before, but it's still something that shouldn't be in the trailer - show us them in peril and let us wonder how on earth they get out of it. That's just basic marketing.

That was a ride.

My husband watches it!


Husband? And name is Breanna? Cool, we have a female Xixaxer again!

But I think it's boring!


K... What polkablues said

Anyway, thanks for sharing your thought, guys!



The fuck the point of that? You a Russian troll?
