    @bawnian-dexeus Hm. I like the way that project is shaping up. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

    @thedude-abides Nolan's ace cinematographer? He's doing the Depp movie.

    @thedude-abides@dan1@ejk1 On another note, a new cinematographer turned director will show is his vision come April 2014

    @thedude-abides Ha it does look like a novel. I agree on what you said how not everyone is going to like Malicks work. I've loved all of his films and I cant wait to see this one.
    @ejk1 I dont know if I agree with the whole Affleck the actor needs Affleck the director thing. Yes, the movies he directs and stars in are always top notch but Affleck hasn't been in a lot of movies that he stars in but doesn't direct. Ever since Gone Baby Gone came out (yes i know he didnt star in it but that was the start of his comeback.) he's only starred in two movies that he hasnt directed and if i remember right, they were State of Play and The Company Men and they were just ok. im not counting the smaller roles he had like Smokin Aces and Extract.. just the lead roles. Id give him more time to make movies that he doesnt direct before we start saying things like that.. just saying

    @dan1 I meant we saw eye-to-eye in that I used to share your same opinion, not that you used to like his work or anything. Alas, I understand your position, and this is one subject where I'm sure we can both happily agree to disagree :)

    @thedude-abides That may be overstating it a bit that we see eye to eye on Malick. Perhaps on Tree of Life, and because I could relate to it on a personal level, but not really beyond that. I don't doubt the man's ability to shoot and pick a stellar cast, but his obsession with existentionalism in his films constantly forms a barrier for me to find myself getting involved. I like my film makers being a tad more literal in their subjects. Not too much more, I pick up on subtleties just fine, just that Malick feels all fluff. No meat.

    @ejk1 It's the same reason why I think MW's ratings are overly forgiving. It, too, is an average of all ratings/reviews on the site.

    @thedude-abides How can RT be "overly" anything? All they do is take what others say and mesh them together.

    @dan1 Not too long ago, you and I saw eye-to-eye as it pertained to Malick. I'm not sure what changed other than the fact that I started appreciating his individuality as a filmmaker, but I still completely understand why you feel the way you do.

    *almost just as credible

    @ejk1 Fair enough. I find it to be overly forgiving and overly critical at the same time, but that's me. I'd like to know where Dish Network gathers their scores from, because I consider their ratings to be just as credible as Rolling Stone and The Guardian.

    @thedude-abides I disagree with you on RT, because all they do is gather every review that is out on a particular film and aggregate the score. That's pretty damn useful when deciding what is worth your money.

    @dan1 I like Malick. As Dude said, he has his own style, which is needed to keep Hollywood from being vanilla.

  15. thedude-abides

    @dan1@ejk1 The Guardian gave it a 4/5. Travers hasn't reviewed it yet, but I'm sure it'll get similar marks from him as well. I consider both sources to be much more credible than RT or MW. Not to mention the fact that Malick's work doesn't appeal to many moviegoers, so its bad reviews are somewhat understandable. I think it'll be on-par with his prior work.

    On another note, I'm interested to know which one of his three films will get a cinematography nom. I'm sure the remaining two will look every bit as stunning as Wonder does.

    His movies are becoming literally what Travolta complained about at the beginning of Swordfish. There is indie, then there is gag inducing Malick indie.

    @narrator@ejk1@bawnian-dexeus@thedude-abides Malick has a sickeningly snooty flair that is consuming him more with each project. I fully expect the Bale/Portman project to bomb with critics, too. He needs to drop actual movie making and just be a cinematographer (he has an extraordinary eye for camera shots)

    @narrator True, but I like it for some reason. Looks like the cover to a novel.

    @dan1 That is sad. 41% after 34 reviews on RT isn't good, especially with what appears to be a great cast. Is it possible that Affleck the actor needs Affleck the director to ensure great work?

    Very intrigued by this.. The Tree of Life was the best film of 2011, so let's see what happens here.
