...a box of water?
Great movie...but as far as I'm concerned, the de-aging process still has a long way to go. I certainly didn't buy DeNiro's de-aging especially as a younger man.
Also, I didn't buy Pacino's performance as Jimmy Hoffa for one second. Jack Nicholson's Hoffa, on the other hand, was spot on.
I'm with you 100%, Marty
But what about cartoon movies like Toy Story, The Incredibles, etc. Aren't they 'cinema'?
There's dark and then there's this. Did the DP forget his lighting kit?
I knew there would come a time in the evolution of digital cinema when the image gets too sharp.
To my old-school eyes, Malick's new movie no longer looks like film, but approaches the 'soap opera' look. It's a shame to waste such an enthralling story on, what looks to me like an afternoon TV offering.
What ever happened to standing next to your DP and actually watching your actors perform. So, so much is missed when you stay glued to your little 'over the neck' monitor. Let your DP worry about focus, exposure, lighting...you need to concentrate on the performance, not the technical aspect. It's common sense really...something the younger generation has little of...in my humble opinion.
