They're not out of touch. They're some of the absolutely best informed people in the world and they know exactly what they're doing. Profit is not an issue and neither are the opinions of end consumers. Don't tell me you believe in the "get woke go broke" wishful thinking.

What do you mean by this, do they want to make movies boring and shit so people dont spend their time watching it and do something good with their lives?
If so I can get behind that but looking at the state of the world and everyone, It doesnt seem to be working

Wouldn't bet on that, they are always overproduced and have some pretense of being "epic" or meaningful. Compare the Taiwanese Dragon Ball, fun bad-good type, with Hollywoodian Dragon Ball, just plain bad.

It’s right on the cusp of quality that imageboard users will look at. The source material has clout, and so the narrative and overall content of the movie is solid, but it has a lot of the failings most people deride modern movies for.

And I just got out of the new matrix movie.

Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be it still wasn't even close to good.
Mostly it was just poorly paced with some of the worst casting choices I have seen in a long time.
It was easily the worst of the matrix franchise in almost every regard.
The action was off in the way it was shot, the acting was meh, the music was pretty mediocre, the effects were nothing exceptional, etc.
Every aspect of it was aggressively mediocre, made worse with the bloated run time, and it's constant call backs to far better more culturally relevant films. This movie will not have a significant impact. It will be mostly forgotten and truly shouldn't have happened.

If I was to give it a rating it would be 2 out of 5.
Save your money and pirate it at home where you can pause it to take breaks if you really must see it. It isn't a train wreck, it's watching a old pro wrestlers who can't let go of his glory days try to make a return but just can't preform so it's sad and boring watching him stumble around the ring.

Questions
1.) I heard they cast a new actor to play Morpheus. This is strange to me, as Laurence Fishburne IS Morpheus. How did they write this in? Or is it not explained at all?
2.) How was Keanu Reeves’ performance? Assuming you’re referring to him “stumbling around the ring” and attempting to bring back his “glory days”, I have to disagree. I watched the John Wick films recently and I enjoyed them quite a bit. Sort of had an Oldboy feel to it, but more easy-watching and hedonistic. I’d even go so far as to say Keanu has gotten better with age. He has a world-weary, bittersweet way about him. I thought his performance in the Devil’s Advocate was better than his performance in Speed, for instance, though I enjoyed both equally.

I thought it would be just an excuse to justify Matrix being actually about becoming a tranny or an attempt to dissuade the use of "red pill" and associated imagery in politics, but I haven't seen any complaint about that until now, so I might give it a try.

It would’ve been hilarious if it was all about how in the Matrix, you can be anyone you want, so Neo decided to return to the Matrix and live as a succ.

Watched Sing 2 to cheer myself up.
Never seen the first one but this one wasn't too bad. Just a standard by the numbers jukebox Musical that did improve my mood. Nothing exceptional just very middle of the road, which is too be expected of illumination films.

Think I am done for today at the movies. I am leaving to get some sleep.

Wasn't talking about Keanu with that old wrestler comment. I was talkiNg about the Wachowskis.
Though if I am being honest his acting in this film was pretty phoned in, which is saying something since he isn't the greatest actor to start with.

I watched nightmare alley. I went into kinda excited but did it disappoint. The plot goes nowhere, every character is an asshole, and by the end of the film not a single character has grown. It’s just a movie about dumb assholes being dumb assholes to each other.

how did that chair just explode into all its parts. maybe if she was standing up and she fell back i could see it breaking, but she was sitting and most of the force from the shovel went forward towards the table. i guess it is a shitty chair

 No.60669

The Last Duel. Don't waste your time, just imagine a shameless copy of Rashomon but 'fixed' by the usual suspects to conform with the requirements of the ruling ideology.
As I watched it I got a creeping feeling that this must have been written by a w*man… a w*man of a very particular race characterized by huge hooked noses.
I regret to inform you that I was correct.
Here's a synopsis for you: men bad, stupid, violent and rapists. The Church bad and rapists. The indigenous European royalty and aristocracy bad and bumbling idiots, probably rapists too.
W*myn smart, funny, brave and stunning. Men can only succeed or do the right thing when controlled by w*myn. W*myn should rule the world but men use violence and rape to hold them back. Believe all w*myn. #MeToo.
Europeanism very very bad and you should be ashamed of being an oppressor, goy.
Fight choreography is predictably trash. Brief battle scenes are depicted as usual: two loose mobs run into each other, the lead actors proceed to flail their props at armored extras who are reduced to blood-spraying corpses with a single blow. The final duel is slightly better in terms of treating armor as more than plastic props, otherwise it's mostly a display of useless chopping moves. Hollywood-y cling clang bullshit in glorious motion blur shaky cam. A staggering 10 second segment of the fight has both characters half-swording and not being retarded. Striking with pommels and crossguards is shown twice. The final part of the duel features rondel daggers which rarely appear in movies.
Running time 133 minutes, perfect for masochists. Thank you ZOG for taking a Japanese classic and making it unbearable in every possible way, very cool.

I used to love children of men (2006) for its aesthetics and cinematography but after becoming more of an antinatalist I kind of hate it now since it aims to beat the viewer over the head about how human population decline ultimately leading to extinction of the species is some sort of "bad" thing. I just view it as moralistic breeder natalist propaganda now. Just look at one of the posters for this flick:
>no children. No future. No hope
My response is "so what? who cares?" How is any of that a bad thing? Pure human arrogance and self-righteousness to fear a world where their kind may not be around anymore.
