The 2021 Insert & Credit Cinéaste Spectacular


@“sabertoothalex”#p50126 CinemaSin here: the Marvel movie

"Marvel movie" is a semantic unit whose meaning does not comprise what Spiderverse is (though it is a Movie produced in association with Marvel Entertainment) It's great there's nothing to be ashamed of

among the superlatives I would use to describe it are "best use of 3D animation in film ... _ever???_"

also much love for Pride & Prejudice 2005 <3

“Only narrative films”


The ten magnificients (ordered chronologically):

Enthusiasm (Dziga Vertov, 1931)

Man’s favorite sport? (Howard Hawks, 1964)

The passenger (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1975)

L’enfant secret (Phillipe Garrel, 1982)

Mammame (Raoul Ruiz, 1986)

A child’s garden and the serious sea (Stan Brakhage, 1991)

Strange days (Kathryn Bigelow, 1995)

The brown bunny (Vincent Gallo, 2003)

The happening (Michael M. Shyamalan, 2008)

Film Socialisme (Jean-Luc Godard, 2010)

Had to put several authors I love aside like Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Vincente Minnelli, Straub & Huillet and Kinuyo Tanaka, but the list nowadays is this. Not sure about which Godard I'd put but I'm certain it will be from the 90s on forward.

@"dry cleaner for dogs"#p50094 YES to that Killer of Sheep. Not one of my favorites but one that deserves some love at least.

@“xhekros”#p50130 Forget it, I changed the rules!


@“sabertoothalex”#p50126 CinemaSin here: the Marvel movie

Dude, Into the Spiderverse is an amazing movie, absolutely zero sins involved in putting that on your list. The levels of creativity and quality in taking advantage of the visual medium and animation techniques to do something that couldn't simply work in a live-action film is just delightful. I have all the respect in the world for that movie, unlike for most of the stuff Disney has been pumping out (I do have respect for the people who like those, please take no offense!).


@“sabertoothalex”#p50126 Pride and Prejudice (2005)

I like this one a lot too!


@“captain”#p50134 Forget it, I changed the rules!

I bounced happy go lucky and added hoop dreams

@“captain”#p50134 Don‘t worry, I was joking. I put those films once I saw that there were other people putting them in their lists, too, but I’d have changed the list to fit in with the rules.


@“sabertoothalex”#p50126 Black Dynamite

I still laugh at


Black Dynamite: I am declaring war on anybody who sells drugs in our community.

> Pimp Council Member: But Black Dynamite, I sell drugs in the community!

Pretty sharp joke to put into a trailer

Brazil (1985, Terry Gillam)

Blow Up (1966, Michelangelo Antonioni)

Fish Tank (2009, Andrea Arnold)

Amelie (2001, Jean-Pierre Jeunet)

Adaptation (2003, Charlie Kaufman)

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014, Wes Anderson)

Mulholland Drive (2001, David Lynch)

Sweetie (1989, Jane Campion)

Vivre Sa Vie (1962, Jean-Luc Godard)

Read My Lips (2001, Jacques Audiard)

You know what, when I write them out like this, I kind of realize why sometimes my friends get frustrated by my choice of movies. These are all movies that have a specific vision to them that you need to be on board for the ride from the beginning.


@“xhekros”#p50130 The passenger (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1975)

I almost went with this one instead of Blow Up. I feel like people don't appreciate Antonioni's english films nearly enough. His collaborations with Monica Vitti are all brilliant and transcendent, but I there's something about his big studio pictures that have an extra layer of hypnotic _coolness_ that elevates it.

I'm going to think about my movie list only as long as it takes me to think of ten movies I think could be on a list.

_Come and See_ (1985)
if I wanted to show off I'd say _Barking Dogs Never Bite_ (2000), if I wanted to be more personally nostalgic I'd say _The Host_ (2006), but if I'm going to be truly honest I'd have to choose _Parasite_ (2019)
_Drunken Master 2_ (1978)
_The Big Lebowski_ (1998)
_Jurassic Park_ (1993)
_Mad Max: Fury Road_ (2015)
_Sorry To Bother You_ (2018)
_Once Were Warriors_ (1994)
_Amadeus_ (1984) (replacing _Pan's Labyrinth)_
_Battle Royale_ (2000)

Well I thought of more than 10 so I pared it down a bit.

@“dry cleaner for dogs”#p50094


Am I correct to assume you are both referring to the 183-minute cut of Andrei Rublev?

the whole Шашлык


@“MichaelDMcGrath”#p50093 The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928)

> @“rearnakedwindow”#p50120 The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928, Carl Th. Dreyer)

82 minutes or 110 minutes?

Oh man, what a cluster. I‘m not that much of a movie liker. Every time I see a movie I think, is this my new favorite movie? Is it anyone’s new favorite movie? If not, why did they even make it? Lol. But I am even less beholden to the public / Insert Credit opinion on movies than video games. I can just put down some random movies I like best and I don‘t care what anyone else thinks. Some of these I’ve only seen once and were just great theater experiences.

Snatch (2000)
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010)
Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016)
What We Do In The Shadows (2014)
Only Yesterday (1991)
Princess Mononoke (1997)
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri (2017)
Wind River (2017)
Best In Show (2000)

@“captain”#p50156 I remember being surprised by the conciseness of it both times I watched it, so I thiiiink I saw the 82 minute version, so that‘s what I’ll go with.


@“BluntForceMama”#p50157 Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016)

> What We Do In The Shadows (2014)

I was quite close to putting _Boy_ (2010) on my list!

@“BluntForceMama”#p50157 Lot of great picks here but special shoutout to Only Yesterday. I almost put it on my list. The older I get, I like Takahata‘s movies more than Miyazaki’s (obviously they're both brilliant filmmakers), and this one in particular is full of subtly heavy moments and strange levities that I just relate to so hard.

@“dry cleaner for dogs”#p50139

As Austen fans we’ve truly been very blessed to have great visual adaptations to go along with the already basically perfect books she wrote.

I would put the line reads and comedic timing of Black Dynamite up there with the best of the medium, it’s just flawless!

@“BluntForceMama”#p50157 Wilderpeople ended up being one of my favorite surprise watches over the course of quarantine. Went into it not knowing at all what it was, truly a random pick based on the actors in it, and was blown away!


@“xhekros”#p50130 The happening (Michael M. Shyamalan, 2008)

I don't think this act of contrarianism will be topped lol
