Either I'm not picking up on something here (quite possible) or someone's off their meds today....
Roma Rotten Tomatoes? (There's a joke in there somewhere)...
Top critics: 100%
It's clearly a movie that isn't for everyone, but it's not a bad movie. It fully achieves what it sets out to do, and does it with style. It provokes thought rather than demanding attention and spoon-feeding the audience.
It will always be popular to bash that sort of thing. Some people can't just walk away from things they don't care for or that aren't necessarily aimed at their tastes. They need to soapbox about it like anyone else gives a **** what they think.
Me, I drive by McDonalds every day and don't make threads about how much I hate their burgers. It takes all kinds to make a world.
Are you serious?
I am posting about the drumset in ROMA.
There is a scene of a band rehearsing in the slum Cleo visits in order to find the father of her child.
In THAT scene the drummer plays a Mapex kit.
You obviously have not seen the film.
Or you were heavily drinking while watching it
Maybe there's something wrong with me, but when it comes to critiquing films, the period correctness of the drum kit is really, really low on my list.
Well yeah, that's why they did the filming in North Korea, nice a nice peaceable place.
That scene was like a minute, and i had no idea you were referencing that because I referenced the Strat!
On mine too,still I wonder why very few directors do it right when it comes to something that simple.They also almost always set it up wrong I have seen at least three movies where the snare drum is where the floor tom should be and the tom is on the snare stand
They spend a little fortune on cars and an even larger on clothes and they always miss the drumset .
Anyway I hope that what I said is now clear and that finally we can refrain from too much drinking and missing of medication jokes
I always seem to bat .500 when it comes to Critically praised movies.
This one fell short for me.
It was beautifully shot!! The opening scene where she is cleaning the drive and you see the reflection of the plane in the water grabbed me.
So I watched the entire thing and enjoyed it visually, but just didn't connect with story.
He was posting while he was watching. Probably reading a bunch of TDPRI threads as well.
Yeah, but how about that guitar in Back to the Future?
I am curious about Roma. Though the comparison to The Godfather gives me pause. I freaking hate that movie.
There is no comparison to the GF in this thread. The reference was not a comparison.
Roma is its own film.
As a wise friend once said "If I wanted to read, I'd get a book"
Okay, then what association were you drawing between Roma and Godfather?
My read was pacing and a focus on family/community/class dynamics.
If ferners makes films the least they can do is speak American!
Don't get me wrong, they can make all the foreign language films they want. Just don't expect me to watch them
I have no problem with subtitles. I even turn them on for some movies where it's hard to hear dialogue.
Want to know how far under the rock I am? I thought this whole thread was about a movie from 1972.
(I thought the person who said it was in Spanish was making a joke. Didn't realize there was a new movie until someone mentioned Alfonso Cuaron.)
Yeah! Besides, what's the chance that the vast majority of humanity that doesn't primarily speak english could make something worth watching?
