Triumph of meanness

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    No script, no real action, no thriller. Just shit to make money.

  • I vote for Skyfall, superb cinematography in action scenes, but poor shallow script...

    old 007 movies = better script + poor action scenes

    new 007 movies = poor script + great action scenes

    007 over time: technology and cinematography improved, creativity decreased

  • Los cronocrímenes

    Not bad film, but example of the script that had been made backwards instead of proper way. Invent something you like and later just match everything even if make no sense.

  • The Man in the High Castle, series

    Society, idiots and "ideas" that Jeff Bezos and his friends would like to see around.

    Plus set of every stamp you ever saw mixed together.

  • House of Sand and Fog

    Highly rated and perfect exemplar for this collection.

    Former Iran military who participated in helping stealing oil and other resources to US and western countries and had been granted US citizenship for this (to avoid proper resolution). Shown with some real caricature parts. This is one side.

    And quite young cunt, stupid as hell, never working, not having any money, drunken smoker, emotionally like 3 year old child. This is second side.

    Both fighting for cheap looking old house.

    Horrible police (each and every part of it), horrible tax agency, and many other horrible idiots as background.

    All this with good spice of modern US capitalism on top.

  • Victoria

    Absolute horrible shit about one dumb cunt and four drunken criminals.

    No editing (as film is advertised as shot in single take), no dialogs (actors can make up them, right? wrong!), no story, no nothing. Just pure idiocy and pretense.

  • Schneider vs. Bax

    Bizarre dark drama (not comedy, and not a bad movie).

    Story about idiotic killer and completely fucked family. Very sad that some of company stay alive at the end.

  • Vertical Limit

    Fantasy about climbers as some cheap script writer thinks about them.

  • Bølgen

    Norway attempt to make disaster movie. Good visuals, but horrible lack of logic.
    Nordic people make scientific station to prevent any disaster to happen, but only idiots are working on it (except one imbecile that have necessary papers with data in his trash).
    They have sirens and such, but no such thing as evacuation plan.
    But all end up good, except like 90% of town dead, but this does not matter really.

  • Fargo, Season 2, updated

    What can happen if you add more of the same and also bunch of everything around? Well, something you don't want to eat.

    With each series it degrades to new depths. Perfect case where producers do not understand that made previous season so good.

    To the end it converted into second rate trash.

    • Criminals, criminals everywhere, actually everyone is idiot, criminal or potential criminal here
    • Bad music and bad sounds
    • Complete lack of logic
    • Lots of character that make no sense and no one care for (made to spend money)
    • Idiots who consume like 90% of all film time
  • This comments are better than the movies all together ;-)

    Absolutely agree on the rise of stupidity on movies, it looks like someone somewhere is trying to make ignorance and lack of reason a new human value...

    Absolutely wise phrase in all senses "triumph-of-meanness", lets hope it doesn't propagate to all the cinema around the world.

    There are still good movies around.

  • Two future members

  • The Brand New Testament, Le Tout Nouveau Testament

    Real masterpiece of meanness.

    Benoît Poelvoorde as god really delivers, really accurate god depiction according to George Carlin .

    It is something like Amely just done to the limits of absurdity.

    And as usual ToM masterpiece it is uncontrollable playground for "creativity" (it means that no sane adult ever saw the script or interrupted shooting process).

  • The Intern

    Pointless film about meaningless people doing stupid things.

  • Cellular, 2004

    Idea had some potential, but script and executing really fails.
    You never care for anyone here. Just wish that Stathem kill each one.

  • The Martian

    Very good sample for collection.
    Lots of people you do not care for ( due to horrible script and acting), do extremely stupid things with exceptionally serious faces.

  • Home Invasion

    Another good minimalistic and cheap sample.

    Movie about non working criminals family without farther, who is.. well.. criminal, living in big house. And about bunch of morons who wanted to get very valuable something, just do it using weirdest approach possible. Yes, authors used everything possible to keep it longer than 5 minutes short (this is the length they have actual content for).

  • Instinct, 1999

    With some good performances it is good example where idealistic and unscientific point of view can lead. We have scientist who is surprised by natural selection and people behavior (btw, shown without possible reasons behind their actions) and somehow made up some idealistic thing from real gorillas life. Good documentaries, films and stories exist about this - read them instead of this.

    And last part with director wanting to repeat Shawshank Redemption is quite funny, but badly made (some references to other movies are present in a film also).

  • Steve Jobs, 2015

    Dream of theater actors is to do something like this.
    Lots of strange "dramatic" talks without much reason and with pretense to get some nominations.

  • Incidencias, Spain 2015

    Very good member in collection.

    Can look quite boring sometimes, but some ideas are nice, interview interruptions idea is also interesting.

  • The Last Witch Hunter

    It is just impossible to explain all idiocy here, but if you are up to some particle effects you can watch few minutes.

  • In the Heart of the Sea

    Main advantage - good looking whales.

    But all of this just feels and screams CGI. I much better like "Michiel de Ruyter" picture.

    Characters are badly made, you just do not care for them.
    Do lots of stupid things (mostly invented for effects). They do not fight for their life, do not use anything long time mariners could use.

    Film really needed another script, another director and main actors, using much less effective, but actual shots instead of CGI for most time.

  • The Revenant

    What can be result if some good camera operator living in Sahara desert and his always drunk and lonely wife wanted to shoot a film about bears and Alaska all by themselves?
    This film.

    No normal script, no even remote resemblance to actual survival in tough places (Mexican director was wise choice!), just lot of nature shots and DiCaprio... again (it should be Samuel L. Jackson as they planned it, I told you, Sahara tribe ideas are always wise).

  • Deadpool

    "Fun" film about so called super heroes.
    Main advantage - one of the best and costly marketing comagins.
    All else is big one disadvantage.
    Humor will do if you sit more than 10 hours daily consuming media shit - http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/comment/215530#Comment_215530 , in any other case it won't.
    Do not spend your time on this.

  • Where to Invade Next

    Stupid America elite always do stupid things, invade countries just for fun and always looses, as author of this film state. But..
    Michael will do smart thing, he will bring home "smart ideas" to save America.

    Well... shit. Film is stupid ode to idealism. Horrible misunderstanding that to make something you need huge number of real things to be present, huge number of restrictions to be met and you also need to do real(!) things. Just ideas do not worth anything. Thing that are referenced as bad in US are not bad because lack of idea, almost always they are bad because someone have profits from the way it works.
