    Great movie if they didn't do the whole out-of-order thing for no reason (other than Nolan gets a hard-on from that)



    LA jerk-off fest.



    Very good if not comically depressing.
    Arrival is fantastic. La la land is still garbage

    Both movies are excellent for different reasons. People who hate one or the other are in some way deficient.

    That is why I dont click on stuff like that. Someone else will and tell me what it says and then I can decide

    It happens with all-time movie lists when some site desperate for attention throws "Triumph of the Will" or "Birth of a Nation" on it for a hoot.

    In the propaganda film category, "Triumph" is the clear winner.

    Triumph of the Will has cinematography that has had a lasting influence. All that aerial stuff that Riefenstahl did lives on today in the form of the drone filming that the big/flashy YouTube accounts do.

    She was a hanger-on c*nt who sadly lived far longer than she should have, but a smart one.

    What specifically makes La La Land excellent? Even as a musical it's at best third-rate. And if it were about Spokane and not LA, it would have gotten no attention. Actually, that's not true, there would be a lot of really good meth-themed musical numbers in a Spokane musical. We need a Spokane musical is, I think, the point I was trying to make here. I don't remember.

    Guessing not too many musicals nowadays?

    Honestly, South Park has been the best musical since The Blues Brothers...as far as I can remember.

    Some agree: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts...rticle1215684/

    He will make a slight exception for movie musicals, though, and confirms that he loved South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, with songs such as Blame Canada and Kyle's Mom Is a *****. (The lyrics for those songs were written by Shaiman along with South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone). "Oh, yes, I think South Park Uncut is just terrific, and the numbers in it are wonderful," Sondheim says.

    Montages are ironically awesome. The Rocky IV montage? Classic.

    Everything in Rocky IV is ironically awesome. It competes with Commando to lead that category.

    I was at bbdl's one day, he had to run to the store for something or other. Found Rocky IV in Spanish. Now, if that isn't a trip, I dunno what is...

    Would I be correct to guess very little is lost by watching it in another language?

    If you know the movie like we do, you would be correct. It was just surreal.
