I'm sure Alex can't tell the difference between certain members. Well, i mean he could...if he tried. But he's never really bothered.

 

Why would he bother to get to know you, Jason? All you watch is CSI, NCIS and The Mentalist! ;)

Ive been accused of watching those. I was a regular watcher of the Mentalist. I have never been a watcher of Ncis and I enjoyed CSI. I love murder procedurals. I love shows with good guys and bad villains. How simple of me.

Gary Oldman to play Churchill again after success of "Darkest Hour".

 

Quote

Gary Oldman plans to reprise his Oscar-winning performance as Winston Churchill for a new project, the actor revealed this morning.

 

"I've only scratched the surface. I think that there's another chapter here," said Oldman, who played the wartime leader in the acclaimed 2017 film Darkest Hour. "Maybe a movie, maybe something on television."

Yes, of course I've seen DARKEST HOUR. For the record, if I comment on a film, then always assume that I've seen it. I don't comment on films which I haven't seen.

Ok, I'm being a teeny weeny bit facetious, there, but it's only because I like McNeice's Churchill, so much. I wish Mr. Oldman all the best in reprising this character.

I wasn't referring just to this film. Did you know crew members are being paid less for working on streaming content then "regular" tv and film productions?

 

Its not an indication of quality.

House Of Cards? Stranger Things? The OA? Black Mirror? Or are you referring to Scorsese's film The Irish Man with Robert De Niro? Seems to me that quality isn't really the problem. Like I posted before, Scorsese couldn't be more happy with Netflix because, according to him, they are willing to take risks and they give him complete artistic freedom. Also, ridiculously high budgets and big paychecks aren't synonymous with good TV series, movies or creativity.

 

“People such as Netflix are taking risks. ‘The Irishman’ is a risky film. No one else wanted to fund the pic for five to seven years. And of course we’re all getting older. Netflix took the risk.” - Martin Scorsese

There's a difference between shows and movies made directly by Netflix like Steef is talking about (House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Stranger Things, etc), and when they just either buy finished movies already made by others (Cloverfield Paradox, Annihilation, etc), or fund directors who make movies with their own crew, like Mute or The Irishman.

The point is whatever practices they follow with their own content they create from scratch has no bearing on the quality of other "Netflix Originals" which are actually outside projects they just paid the most money to distribute.

Both are outside projects Netflix paid to distribute in certain countries.  Netflix has no input on any creative decision with either of those, they are just a distributor, and only in certain countries

I don't know of movies made by a specific Netflix crew. They either buy movies or they fund them. Both are called Netflix Originals.

The kinds of movies made directly by Netflix are utter garbage and seemingly all romantic comedy type dreck.  The Princess Switch, The Kissing Booth, etc etc.

Fucking with the colour timing???

Yeah, I've found that Netflix way oversaturates the colors and bumps up the contrast.  Reds and blues are way overemphasized and greens look sickly yellow

I haven't seen it (and I never will), but The Princess Switch gets a whopping 90% on RT. And Bird Box, also developed by Netflix, is also getting pretty good reviews as well.

On their own productions of films and shows they've licensed?

Looks like I read the wiki article too quickly; It later says "In July 2017, it was announced that Netflix had acquired the rights to the book after Stuber became head of the feature film division of Netflix and would develop the film".

 

 

Anyhoo, I didn't like that movie.  I was surprised by how much hype it continues to have because I thought it was kinda boring and cliched and not very well made.


A Quiet Place was loads better
