What’s the silliest, shallowest movie that changed your life?Discussion

There was a post on here about how The Whale’s depiction of depression resonated with them and that they felt it changed their life.

I got to thinking about how silly the most recent film to change mine must be to other people (EEAAO), considering it’s a film that utilizes dildos, butt plugs, and googly-eyes, and it got me to cracking up, like, “what if the film that changed my life was The Pest?” and now I’m dying to hear real examples!

No shame, no judgement, let’s have some fun! Let em rip!

Your first celebrity crushDiscussion

Your first celebrity crush

Need not be a celebrity, a character or the person playing the or the celebrity itself. It can be anything anime / show / sitcom / movie or even a famous person. Like Mine was actually Gwen Tennyson from Ben 10 alien force 😂😂. I also genuinely love the relationships between Gwen and Kevin.

It’s possible this question was asked before but I’m pretty new and haven’t seen it yet so I thought why not. Also feels like a nice question to get unique answers.

What actor or actress is the best example of someone who can do both act and direct at the same time? Discussion

Ben Affleck has his moments where his acting is great and not so great, but I find his ability to direct to be quite impressive!

Especially in terms of his work on Argo, not only was his directing amazing but he managed to give a pretty good acting performance at the same time.

Doing both can be very hard, with so much to keep track of on set while needing to make sure you also direct yourself on pulling off a good believable performance on the camera at the same time.

Coherence was so worth the wait Discussion

Wow I'd put off watching this movie for I don't even know what reason for years. I usually love these kinda movies - Moon, The Man from Earth, Looper, Predestination, Triangle etc but anyway, I finally decided to watch it tonight and I was captivated from beginning to the end. It's incredible how believable the premise is, the whole time it felt like it could actually happen to me.

The ending has left me wanting more. (Spoiler) Emily 1 attempted to kill her alternate version twice to take over that reality. But she obviously failed because Kevin gets a call in the end from the Emily 2 of that timeline and we don't follow what happened after she was left in the bathtub. So we are to assume that she's still in the house and hasn't told anyone yet and is about to, yes? And what happens in the timeline Emily 1 left? What happens to the two Mikes who were tied up? I want details on the aftermath so bad. And I want to know how and what exactly Hugh's brother knew. So many questions.

Anyway, I'm about to rewatch it to catch anything I've missed. Any crazy details I should look out for?

What are the absolutely worst example of an actor trying their hand at directing?Discussion

What are the absolutely worst example of an actor trying their hand at directing?

Are there any well regarded and talented actors who just did a bell flop when working behind the camera? Any who were up for Razzies? Any sub par actor turned directors who've released several films yet steadily worse and worse?

What are some examples where good actors did a very terrible movie or role - not counting their early struggling years?Discussion

I mean, as an actor, Keanu is pretty average, but still, given his popularity, I still don't get it why he did Knock Knock. This came out like a decade ago when he's already so popular. Makes you think why would a good successful actor pick an objectively bad movie.

What are some other examples where a actor played a very shitty role or did a shitty movie - but excluding their early years where they probably HAD to do such roles to pay the bills.

Another example would be Matt Damon in we bought a zoo. Idk, it might be just me but that movie was so weird for him to pick. Given that he's an a-list actor.

How much do you think "The Game" cost in universe in Fincher's 'The Game'?Discussion

Conrad (Sean Penn's character) buys his brother Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas's character) a chance to play a game. Nicholas's life is turned upside down as he begins to question if it might really be a concealed conspiracy to destroy him. In the end we find out all his paranoias are just that and there truly was a grand scale game all for him. In the end when Michael Douglas's character offers to help Sean Penn's character with the bill Sean Penn's character is greatly relieved and says yes. My question is: how much do you think this elaborate over-the-top ruse cost? My guess is high six figures. Thoughts?
