>"I know it's heresy but I don't really like to watch that many old movies.

>"I know it's heresy but I don't really like to watch that many old movies. There's an obvious lack of quality on a technical level due to the primitive technology. Yeah sure, there's no doubt that Eisenstein and Bergman are very influential but in my opinion, their movies don't hold up. The people that tend to praise the films of Kurosawa and Welles are usually either pretending to be infatuated with them to give off the look that they're cinephiles or just take influence into account when it comes to cinema. I personally like to take an objective approach to film criticism and not take into account influence and other subjective variables."

Is he right Cinemaphile? Are fans of kurosawa and bergman just pretending or is he just a pleb?

        All crutches to cope with a lack of preproduction planning and onsite setup. For decades and decades you didn't need those because you'd plan your locations, your shots, practice your blocking and moves and run the camera on a track if you wanted a smooth moving shot. The elimination of the cost of running the "film" when digital became common has had a massive detrimental impact on best practices in moviemaking. When there's no cost associated with resetting and doing another take it disincentives putting in the work before everyone is on set and the cameras are rolling. So everyone gets lazy and just wings it on the day and expects editors and colossal farms of south east asian 3d renderers to cobble together hundreds of hours of subpar dogshit and adlibs into something they can try to sell to an audience.

          The reason old movies hit is because there are timeless stories/tropes and historic events to cover that everyone picked the most prevalent or awe inspiring events to cover before they became tired. Or at least humored common fantasy of that time.
          A lot of 'new' movies are covering those same powerful stories/tropes but in more and more diluted ways that take away from the stories effectiveness.

    Is this that YMS autistic furry? If that’s a real quote he’s a complete fool. I watch TCM if the Phillies aren’t on that night and old movies are just as good and often times better than new movies. The Prisoner of Benda was made before WWII and it blows anything that’s been released in the past year out of the fricking water. I watched Stagecoach the other day and then two days later I watched a modern western called “Slow West” and Stagecoach was ten times more action packed, exciting, more well written, and more interesting. I kept rewinding Slow Weat because I was day-dreaming the whole time through that boring pile of crap.

    If you like movies you should give old movies a chance. They more or less perfected the artform 100 years ago, there’s a wealth of entertainment treasure out there just waiting for you to discover. Nothing has gotten better after 1985, it’s only gotten worse.

      Tbh I feel like most film reviewers on YouTube get into it for the clout more than anything else. Its why so many end up, eventually, trying their hand at making movies. They want to make movies and see posting YouTube vids as a stepping stone for support. Unfortunately, most of them end up sucking hard once they try. Also modern/mainstream movies get more clicks than obscure ones.

      This monkey is really disgusting. He puts some of the most repulsive shit online of himself engaging in and then wonders why people don't like furries. Anon

      when did this confrontation happen?
      it's fricking insane he doubles down on that moronation he said on a drunk stream
      i'm not in a position to judge any furgay as I have jerked off to Maid Marian and Judy Hopps R34 and shit, but this moron is going way out of bounds

      beating off to Maid Marian is not what people think of when they think of a furry. They think of Adam

    older filmmakers actually understood what they were using the camera for and did it subtly. the stories actually touched on deep themes and werent shallow like todays movies. a hollywood melodrama from the 40s has more to say about the human condition than some trust fund kids off broadway play turned into modern independent flavour of the month.

    Some people way overestimate how much film making has evolved. They added sound and then they added colour and since then it's been a whole bunch of side grades but not much in the way of unambiguous upgrades. You got digital cameras and digital effects but they still shoot movies more or less like they used to since the 60's. And unless they actually manage to make higher framerates look good enough to catch on it won't change anytime soon.

    You all are forgetting the trash that they watched back then that didn’t survive – the shit that wasn’t even worth preservation and the celluloid was left to rot.
    Most people /film/pilling exclusively watch the greats, the classics – they ignore all the mediocrity that existed back then.
    Its why I like watching TCM when I can. Outside of the feature slots they often play a lot of mediocrity during the off hours.

    His argument is the equivalent of homosexuals making a "top 50 games of the last forty years!" And then fricking somehow, out of all of the technological marvels and leaps in player experience, the maker of the list would still have the top 5 be, like, Zelda, Mario, etc. Like the original titles.

      Yeah and a lot like movies you see classic usual suspects on lists that feel more like checking off boxes rather tgan having an honest opinion about them, because you're right in that the best games released in the 80s and 90s weren't fricking super mario or zelda, it was stuff with real personality like Half Life, Jagged Alliance 2, Blood, Gran Turismo 2, Thief, and System Shock 2, that are not only better games but games that are still more fun than most of the modern sloppa out there. Another anon pointed out Earthworm Jim which is another game that would kick the ever loving shit out of mario or sonic any day and that's mostly due to how much personality and charm it oozes, can't say the same for kiddy nostalgia bait shit like mario, sonic, metroid or zelda.

If you can’t comprehend that people can earnestly like things that you don’t, to the point where you have to create this delusion that the majority of people are lying to themselves and you and of course you are the only one who’s got enough integrity to admit you didn’t like a fricking movie, you might just be kinda dumb

    Don't trust the movie opinion of ANYBODY who says they don't like "old movies." Movies don't magically become bad as time passes, "old movies" are still good if they were good when they released. And sometimes movies that weren't good when they were released seem better now because things have gotten so dire in comparison.

    He's a homosexual. But he's semi right. A lot of Kurasawa films hold up very well even today. Welles doesn't hold up at all. I like watching old noirs. I recently watched Touch of evil and Lady from Shanghai. The former is ridiculously bad. Poorly written, poorly acted. Only the opening shot is worth watching. The latter is below average with a decent ending. No i would never recommend anyone watching Welles. Long hair guy is right. Idgaf about who had a big influence on cinema. A movie needs to still be watchable. I've only watched one Bergman film and it was okay. But i have no interest in watching his other films.

    In the last 15-20 years alone the technical quality of movies have degraded massively.

I don't know whether he constantly shits on older films or not. There are plenty of fun old movies. But it's not like you can watch every contemporary movie in existence so that it would force you to watch old movies. The only reason I watch old movies is because i like crime/noir films. Yea i have watched citizen kane but it sucked. Casablanca on the other hand was pretty good. But i usually stick to noir.
