    The story is great in the first half, falling to 6/10 in the second. Hardly "[not] good at all". Barry's scoundrel character has a negative impact on the story beats which could be considered a noble sacrifice.

      Can you explain to me why did the soldiers march to their death against the french army? i thought that was really stupid, why did the writer go for this scene?

      And i honestly dont get the final duel, why did he agree to a duel where he can lose everything and that lord billington can win everything? whats the point of that duel and why did he shoot the earth if he is such a scoundrel and opporunitst? it doesnt make sense within his character.

      I like the cinematography but some plot choices feel weird to me, especially the first duel, and i dont get it maybe there is a hidden meaning i missed.

      It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

      i mean that doesn't mean shit to me, any movie can copy paste some old verb and preach to me. that doesn't give it anything value to me.

      im not familiar with that historical period, did the British people talk like this? seems weird how they talk in the film. i find it hard to believe, idk maybe the acting is just bad.

        He was sad.

        He was sad at the beginning when Nora cucked him.
        He was sad in the military because people were being killed senselessly. That's how it worked then, and that's how it works now. Just because soldiers today appear hidden doesn't mean they are, we have guided weapons and indiscriminate weapons now. It's the same march to death, back then everybody had to stand where they could see each other.
        He was sad even while buying art and castles, because he was a poser and a despised Irish new-money.
        Then he was very sad when his son died.

        He got sadder until Bullingdon challenged him, then he was too sad to kill his wife's favorite son, her last son, and his sadness overcame his scoundrel ego. As for why he accepted, it's absurd to think of Barry running from a duel. That more than anything else puts your whole viewing of the film into question.

          Its interesting, i never thought of it from this perspective, but i have to read more into it, cause i need to see more things to backup his motive and behavior.
          Thanks for the sensible post at least.

          I just searched for thread right now and it appears some people made similar threads, so probably the worthless vile fanboy thought i was one of them.

          The point of posting your list is not to one-up. It's to establish parameters for discussion. I can compare Barry Lyndon to The Leopard or Last of the Mohicans or Captain Blood by a dozen strands, and those are required films so we should all be having that level of conversation.

          I actually plan to watch The Leopard after hearing about it, its on my watchlist.
          But if you want some movies i like.
          I like 2001 Space Odyssey, La Dolce Vita, Psycho, The Prestige, Fanny and Alexander, One Flew Over The Cucko's Nest, The Godfather, Ran, Blade Runner, Cinema Paradiso, Se7en and Mullholand Drive.

          Those are examples of my taste. obviously i cant list everything.

          I also dont like war films, i can count the war films i like on one hand, they are Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now and Braveheart.
          I dont know the rest are either mediocre or just decent or some are downright awful.

          War films especially modern war just bore me. but this was historical so i thought it will be different, it wasnt a war film so i enjoyed it somewhat, but there are some gripes cause i thought i was much much better than that.

                Fair enough.

                they march because hierarchies and group psychology. also as has been explained many a time in these threads, the guns were dogshit so they needed to focus firepower to have any hope of hitting anything. the story is also incredibly, wtf are you on about. it encompasses EVERYTHING about the human experience, being a male, the nature of women, aspirations, moving up and having to change yourself blah blah.

                I still don't get it, so they march towards their deaths like puppets? it doesnt make sense, its not human behavior, this feels like extremely artificial scene. But ok, since it barely matters in the overall plot i will let it slide as a minor flaw, but then one other question i raise and thats how did the french army let Barry carry his heavy uncle and move around with him for free, they could easily drop that slow burdened man, seems to me that its a huge plot armor, and inaccuracy by the writer.

                I fail to see how the story is incredible, i can see that Barry's character is interesting, but i think its a bit rushed, we dont see in detail the periods that indicates change in him, he either changes way too fast or acts like an butthole without showing us the motivations or the reasons behind it, or maybe i missed some hidden meanings.

                I honestly didnt find the story incredible, but what i found incredible was the cinematography, the costumes, the music and mayyybe the directing.
                The acting and the story however were flawed.

                Now you raise good bullet points to discuss.
                >being a male
                do you mean the nature of proving your status? and trying to climb your way in society?
                >the nature of women
                in what way you mean this? and i want to address that maybe its a cultural thing? i dont think this applies to every culture out there.
                >moving up
                So you basically say that its the same as Scarface? i actually liked Scarface a lot, i think i like it better when it comes to acting and story, but its worse as a cinematic experience. the cinematography, directing and production is not as good.
                But its weird because i still remember Scarface more fondly, maybe because i had higher expectations for this and lower for Scarface when i watched it.

On this board every day we see incels claim to be expert anatomists, high schoolers who know forensics, gamers commenting on the military, and terminally online zoomer takes on history. You should accept what happens in military scenes as accurate because Kubrick and knowledgeable people say so, what basis do you have to dispute? May as well question how Tom Cruise flies his F-14.

                But it doesnt make sense at all, think about it a little bit, why would a group of soldiers march to their death like this without showing any bit of resistance? any bits of defending their life, it doesnt make sense, its like you are marching a bunch of puppets. i can't believe this is real, im sorry.

                Also nobody still said what triggered that change in him when it comes to the final duel, so he just decides not im going to be "le good"? i dont get it, i like character development as much as the other guy, but i dont recall seeing a moment triggering that change. is it the death of his son? the story moves away quickly after that they it didnt let us interpret anything.

                im not trying to shit on your favorite movie, im trying to see what did i miss, if someone else has been making these threads then its clearly not me, in fact as in this thread its not only me arguing, someone else is just as confused as me here.

                I mean you literally have no conception of the forces involved. Distance, scale, speed, morale, training, nothing. The scene is less than a minute long, even if Kubrick set out to educate instead of shock you, he could scarcely bring a total innocent up to speed. It's not a representative scene.

                >Also nobody still said what triggered that change in him when it comes to the final duel
                It wasn't a change. He always did what he thought was right, and he was often dumb. I explained why he was sad and why he chose not to shoot bully in the head.

                War was like that.

                > We went on. When we got about two or three hundred yards the battery of the Russian Horse Artillery opened fire. I do not recollect hearing a word from anybody as we gradually broke from a trot to a canter, though the noise of the striking of men and horses by grape and round shot was deafening, while the dust and gravel struck up by the round shot that fell short was almost blinding, and irritated my horse so that I could scarcely hold him at all. But as we came nearer I could see plainly enough, especially when I was about a hundred yards from the guns. I appeared to be riding straight on to the muzzle of one of the guns, and I distinctly saw the gunner apply his fuse. I shut my eyes then, for I thought that settled the question as far as I was concerned. But the shot just missed me and struck the man on my right full in the chest.

                Of course. The problem with doing that is you rapidly run out of exciting films with modern sensibilities. Already you're into material that normalgays (like you) consider too slow or too different. It only gets more challenging from here if you watch films for the history.

        I'm not. I saw this movie years ago and thought it was ok, and generally being a fan of Kubrick the praise piques my curiosity, especially with how often it's held up as his misunderstood masterpiece, which I don't agree with.
        >You’re clearly insecure and trying to ‘fit in’ with da movie guys
        Trying to hammer this down when all I did was ask someone to explain their position is more a sign that it's you that's insecure about this movie receiving anything less than unanimous praise.

    That’s all you need. Film is a visual medium first and foremost, and if a movie is interesting and looks great then that’s all it needs to be worth your time. If you’re concerned about great stories, the best film story will never come close to the best literature, so go there instead

    F-F-F-F-FILTERED

    Ryan O’Neal’s acting in this was excellent, the critics were wrong. From his boyhood uncertainty in the very first scene, seething immature outburst with Captain Quin, his insecure attempts to fit in with high society, and how he cried when retelling his sons favorite war story. The acting was great

    So was the story, the rise and fall of an ambitious country boy who achieved more than he had a right to but finally loses it all the one time he decides to show decency or higher honor. Great movie, probably my all time favorite

      well i mean since you cant prove "good acting" then you just have to take my word with a grain of salt. you can call me midwit if that makes you feel better about yourself, but the at the end of the day, it will not change my thoughts.

      I think one common problem nowadays is that Youtubers make analysis for films and write essays and 3 hours long videos to explain to people like you why the film is good, so now you can convince yourself its one of your favorites and when someone genuine like me asks why its good you freak out and start throwing insults to make yourself feel better, the thing is, if the same scenario repeats itself but with the author of the analysis instead of you (the poser) then i will defintely get interesting responses and will probably witness intellectual discussion unfolding, but as things are now on the internet we have to suffer through the edgelords to read some intelligent comments.

          When nobody is giving solid reasoning for why its good and all they do is throwing insults then that gives the impression that people like it because they were "told" to. instead of genuinely and actually like it.
          It is super easy for someone that likes something to explain their position on it.
          It is hard for a poser to explain what they likes other than repeating the essays they heard on the internet, hence when you stray from the known they get aggressive.

              I already said i like the comfy narrator (ears)

              I guess its the soul part, yes i didnt feel for the film, the one aspect i was feeling in the film was its atmosphere, i actually liked that, scenes where the music stops and we heard ambient sounds was pretty good.

              But no i did not feel the acting, and i did not feel the characters.
              I do feel that, just not in this film.
              For example just before this film i watched Network and i like Diane acting so much, i felt all her scenes.
              I think i can recognize "good acting"

                We also concluded that your interest in these films is more historical than artistic. You saw how approaching movies that way might lead you to judge on a different scale than others.

                The problem is right from the get go i was confronted with a triggered fanboy who started throwing pity insults at me and honestly that makes me lose my interest in liking it or even understanding it further. its so off-putting to read such responses, i was excited to talk about the film but now i honestly want to quit the thread and leave. i just lost my apetite for it. its my fault for assuming this place is good for discussing it.

                I notice you didn't ask about the gay kiss. I know there've been whole threads in the past of people trying to explain that scene and others acting disgusted, that's the level of critique you offered. Seemingly unwilling or unable to put yourself in the characters shoes. If I ask you to explain why 2001 is good, (it looks pretty, sounds pretty, but is that enough?) given that the HAL situation makes no sense whatsoever, how do you respond?

              I honestly disagree with your first reason, i find LA Dolce Vita doing it far better.
              I agree on cinematography
              great soundtrack
              i dont think the storytelling was that good, engaging yes, but not creative or really impressive, again i liked how the narrator adds the layer to it.
              i agree the lighting was great
              i somewhat enjoyed it, not super entertaining but its not boring.
              dont get the humor but im not british so maybe thats why?

              but the problem is why do you assume i want car fights and say zoom zoom? why are you stupid? honestly? without your last sentence your post would be a lot better.

              i did but not much, it was foreshadowed and i already knew it will happen, it was sad but could've been better, like i have seen way more impactful scenes. not taking away from it but this wasn't something that will make me shout "masterpiece"

          Before Barry he had a good thing going, the wife and son guaranteed him a livelihood. Barry's mother ultimately threatens to fire him but he was aware of this risk long before that point. Beyond his duties as a guardian the wife was devoutly religious and needed him, the rakish Irishman not so much, and beyond that Barry is just a dangerous challenge to the status quo. In many ways he is as much a hanger on / scoundrel as Barry, just with a veneer of civility about him. That being said he never really schemes so much as rallies the others as

          I think he hated barry from the start because he broke the social stability of the house. He knows his place as a servant to the lady and her son, but from the start he perceives himself above barry, the upstart low born irishman. He needles the family against barry quite a bit, and he’s the one who draws into speech the obvious discontent the son is feeling in the carriage. No doubt he also informed lady lyndon of barry’s infidelity. He isn’t happy when the harmony of the society they live in is disrupted, and ultimately gets his way as things turn back to normal. He’s a very loyal person, wether you perceive that as virtuous or not.
