This Year In Film / Re: hereditary

Super hyped. Ari Aster's made some really great off-the-wall short films that always showed the promise that he had a movie like this in him.

This Year In Film / hereditary

iím not going to post a trailer or any of the promo material on the off chance that someone can go into this completely blind.

this movie fucked me up.  very much from the same vein as The Witch, in terms of it being a hyper film literate tone poem of a horror movie that is staggering both in its expert craftsmanship and insanely unsettling efficacy.  one of the scariest movies iíve ever seen.  toni colette is so fucking good in this.

go see this in the emptiest theater possible.

I've only seen the first 3, Rob Zombie's remake, and bits of H20 on television, but mannn do I enjoy those first three. The Shape is iconic and pure nightmare dread. Wonder what Joe Dante woulda done with III. This team coupled with such a strong trailer has me excited they did away with II, Laurie's flip-side fate.

Gonna watch Zombie's H2 soon, and then eventually the franchise. I think Busta Rhymes is in one of 'em.

Finally got a chance to watch this again and am happy to report that whatever experiential blinders I'd had on previously have been totally eradicated, thus I WAS ABLE TO FULLY ENTER AND LOVE THIS MOVIE. A forward-lurching, psychologically-splintered, gorgeously grotesque odyssey through the nightmare of one man's existence...

SPOILER

...with one of the most terrifyingly upbeat endings in recent memory. Proud to have been a part of it (I made those sides every morning like a motherfucker!)

I knew you would come around, eward!

The Grapevine / Halloween

From the creators of George Washington, All the Real Girls, Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down...

David Gordon Green has had the weirdest career.

This actually looks good! I'm a great fan of the original, and was really into the series in my early teens, so I'm rather excited. Carpenter is back producing and doing the score, Nick Castle is playing Michael again, Danny McBride (!) co-wrote it... Color me enthusiastic!

^^ Everything Drenk said. Also, see Listen Up Philip! Jonathan Pryce's character Ike Zimmerman is very much inspired by Roth.

But wait is no one going to talk about those whip-pans!? What kind of PTA fan site is this?

Not only whip pans, but whip pans combined with dolly-ins. And a blue suit!

Yeah, a traditional whip pan will have an edit. You just join the 2 edit points where the images are moving fast. And in the same direction. That's pretty much all you have to do... whip pans are surprisingly easy.

The whip pan in that clip works especially well because they're whipping from trees to trees. (And there's clearly an edit, cause the guy can't be standing in both places.)

That's great. Does anybody know, generally speaking, is there usually an edit built into most pan whips or does it whip in whatever direction and it's still the same shot?

If my memory serves me correctly I think I came to the conclusion there were no cuts in a lot of the Magnolia ones apart from the obvious. I could be very wrong though.
