    The Phantom Menace is 20 years old.

    Well, I guess we're both 'rebels' that way, but we hardly ever agree on anything, so that's pretty impressive right there! However, we do sort of agree on THE GOONIES. There is a long list of 80s kiddie films I would put ahead of that, whether I saw them as a kid or later in life.
  2. To be fair, although I disagree fundamentally with pub on the filmmaking philosophy of Malick in general, this new film can still be disappointing, of course (reviews so far have been very mixed). Looking forward to seeing it, if and when it premieres here, but first it has to be picked up by a Norwegian distributor.
  3. Sorry his approach to filmmaking isn't traditional enough for ya.

    I'm skimming threads here, so didn't quite catch why we're suddenly on to THE GOONIES now. It's one of the few 80s kiddie classics that 'slipped away' when I was a kid; didn't see it untill I was grown up. A fine film, but obviously easier to see its flaws when it's not steeped in nostalgia. I was 22 when TPM came out, so no nostalgic connection to that either, really. I remember writing a long defense article of the film when it came out (on the first incarnation of my website), and I've kinda been defending it ever since.

    A lot of high profile soundtrack CDs came with extra CD-ROMs back then (or CD-ROM material on the disc itself). HARRY POTTER 1, for example. Strange that TPM didn't.

    I hoped it would engulf Dany. Would be a lot of poetic justice in that, and a nice callback to her 'dragon birth' sequence from the first season. But I'm fine with the way it was; the dragon flying off with her presumed dead body 'into the sunset'.

    It's not meant to be subtle. I found it clever and powerful. I realize it's the trend of the day to find flaws anywhere and everywhere in the show, but no need to go looking for them where there is none.

    No need to be sarcastic. It was a superb, goosebump-inducing shot -- one of the reasons why I followed this show: the cinematography, mise-en-scene and so on.

    I don't agree that it's 'all about plot'.

    Plotlines, schmotlines.....I don't really care. I was always into this show for the spectacle, the sense of 'being there'. I don't remember half of the series' plotlines or characters. Looking forward to revisiting the show at some point though.

    Made perfect sense to me. I don't care about crazy fan ravings complaining that the series didn't end exactly how they wanted it to. These guys need to take a chill pill.

    Decent wrap-up episode, but nowhere near the high level of last week's, of course.

    Agreed! Best of the prequels, hands down. And obviously the best of the prequel scores as well. Can't believe it's been 20 years already. Craziness.
  15. More like pictorial fullness. There's always loads of meaning in every single static shot. Curious to see, however, if this returns him to a slightly more traditional narrative than his last few films.
