For all it's silliness (and airy brilliance), ID4's invasion is mounted and executed with a surprising scary and efficient methodology which actually feels more authentic than people were probably expecting when they went in.
I haven't seen that one.
I think District 9 is the most realistic alien "invasion" film. From what I remember, we never learn how or why they ended up in our atmosphere. If filmic aliens ever invaded Earth, I'm sure we'd never know why either.
Oh, I like that film. They're here for no reason, and most of them are not intelligent for some reason.
You do a lot of thinking about this stuff, do you?
I kinda do, yep.
There's a way the Chitauri's strategy could make sense. If it wasn't for the heroes, they would have annihilated New York in a few minutes. Then retreat, close the portal, and carry the device in secret to another important city. Repeat. Attack specifically those places that would completely dismember any of humanity's attempts at organization. Basically, cosmic trolling. Then watch them kneel. This sounds like something Loki would do, laughing at the face of the humans.
I like little snippets in the film like when Loki says to Thor that the humans keep killing among themselves and he does nothing. He knows where to hit.
So Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is art?
Thank you Koray
Yes, it is. It's probably just shit, which is a different thing altogether.
The way I see it: there are films that don't attemp to do anything serious as films
(not as subject matters). They're not art. Then the ones that do, are art, and can range from crappy to fantastic. Specifically, failed art exists, despite the opinions of some elitists who try to deny this and only call art these works they consider fantastic.
Yes, but I don't think things like this can't be measured. It is possible that some person has this kind of profound reaction to Tranformers 2. That they discovered something about themselves, regained their long lost soul, were moved to tears etc. Would they be wrong?
Besides, film as a medium is a very bullying thing. It costs millions to realise a vision, whereas in a case of other art forms, it costs almost nothing. Even comics is more pure than film, which requires an entire industry to accomplish of somehting. And yes, needs to make money. If a comic book flops, no one will care as much.
And this is why film is still in its infancy. But it progresses, now it would be much easier for me to do something filmic than a pair of decades ago. It will mature someday.
Why do you say "even" comics?
