Huh. I had no idea that not only had a director been hired for the fourth reboot film, but that it was a woman too. Neat!

Neat, though the headline is incorrect.

Women have directed Star Trek before.

Hollywood now has faith in women because of Patty 'Wonder Woman' Jenkins.

 

 

I'd say bring back truly talented woman like Julie Taymor!

Julie Taymor's films, while visually striking, are mostly pretentious and overrated. And can often lack discipline and focus. She made a mess of Titus. Her best film was Frida, which is quite good.

 

The best movie ever directed by a woman was Point Break.

That honour goes to National Lampoon's European Vacation.

Point Break is not a movie that I care about but Frida, Titus and Across The Universe really impressed me. Taymor's films are mainly artist-centred, yet not excessively so, and that happens to be my favourite kind.

Her Olympic film is a fantastic piece of visual artistry.

 

Spielberg and Scorcese have defended Rieffenstahl.

 

Sure.  Her talent is undeniable.  But it still annoys me when puerile little shits think it makes them intellectual to talk about.  It's a nuanced subject and to think including the necessary context of it being truly despicable propaganda is being over-sensitive is grandstanding bullshit.  Just like the stupid teens who think it makes them cool anti-authoritarians to read Mein Kampf.  Same juvenile "you can't tell me what to do" instinct.

 

Her work will always have to be discussed in this way, with major asterisks.  That's just how it is.

I mostly agree...but let's be clear these are the same types who wear Che' t-shirts and spout off about Marx as if they understand him.  It's the same psuedo-intellecutual bullshit coming from two different (well, actually not so different) ideological viewpoints.

Yup.  Dumbass, "speak no word of inconvenient context" communists are very annoying too!

Whoa! Geez, guys, it's only a movie. It can't hurt anybody. 

 

 

Tell that to Goebbels!

 

Triumph of the Will is overrated anyway.  Some people just feel all cool and dramatic talking like John Hurt in the first Potter.

Is that official? I guess that without Pine or Hemsworth, it could never happen. What is the planned alternative? I hear that God's not doing much, at the moment. 

They both didn't come to an agreement and probably had other projects on the go. It's s shame because I think it could've been a chance for them to make this film as a conclusion to the Kelvin Timeline, especially with the time travel plot to mirror the first film.

No more of that embarrassing MG score.
