Honestly kind of over Lubezki-era Malick camerawork at this point, but hot damn, this surprised me in a good way.

I'm over Lubezki's gimmicky camerawork and winning awards for logistical solutions instead of photography aesthetics.

I'm solely basing this on the trailer, of course, but watching that, besides the night club bits, I feel like I've seen this movie several times at this point. I'm sure I'll feel differently when I actually see the film, but another jaded in L.A. movie, on top of another Malick joint about finding who you are in life? It just sounds, on paper, like something a bit tedious.

However, I'm more than ready to be proven wrong and to see something wonderfully new.

I can't remember a single shot from Gravity or Birdman and he'll win the award for both of 'em. Children of Men though... shit.

He does great work with natural night on Malick's films. An award for The New World would have been richly deserved.

But I appreciate guys who manipulate light more.

Absolutely agreed. There's at least a symbiosis he has with Cuaron & Malick that make aesthetic sense surrounding their respective approaches.

I don't understand Innaritu's decision to stage Birdman as a single take besides it being an "achievement." For a movie about artistic integrity, it's a brazenly tone deaf move.

Most anticipated 2015 film(s)?

GO.

ZOMG THE FORCE AWAKENS DUHHHH


If Scorsese has Silence ready for awards season (he's supposed to be shooting in Taiwan this spring), then that.

Otherwise, Charlie Kaufman's animated film, Xavier Dolan's next, and I'm assuming Yorgos Lanthimos' English language debut will be coming out this year as well.

This has the potential to be a masterpiece. The material is fantastic, the setting is very fresh for Marty and after killing off Neeson in minutes the last time they worked together, I'm looking forward to his work as Father Ferreira.

I'll always wonder about the original Daniel Day-Lewis/Benicio del Toro casting, though. Neeson and Garfield don't quite stack up to that pair.

Didn't realize he was still trying to get Silence off the ground.

Fury Road is my whole world in 2015.

Otherwise, I know Kiarostami is filming something in China. Not sure if that'll see daylight next year though. Likewise with Hou's The Assassin which is approaching Wong Kar-Wai levels of production delay at this point.

I'm naturally completely in the bag for Mann's Blackhat and Johnnie To's Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2 which a number of my friends already got to see this year and it sounds amazing. Jaume Collet-Serra's Run All Night should pretty much fulfill my VA craving for the year.

Can I just be a small child for a moment and talk about how excited I am that BFG is getting a movie?

Oh, I hope all of this ends up being fake, because if that's what they came up with as their response to the criticisms of the end of the first film, this movie's going to be worse than I thought:
