    When only Disney remains then only Disney will be high art. Only Disney will be low art.

    Disney will obliterate such distinctions.

    Wish upon a star, friends, that this day will be soon.

    I always figured this was the point of the "stargate" sequence in 2001: to give the norms a taste of being high, and blow the stoners out the back of the theater.

    Viggo is definitely a person. I always imagine the real Viggo is the tatted up russian soldier from Eastern Promises who puts cigarettes out on his tongue and fights men naked in bath houses. That's my head cannon Viggo.

    the special features of the lord of the rings feel, at times, like viggo mortensen propaganda

    there's a bit where they were like, "one of the horse trainers/riders was sad because she couldn't afford to buy the horse she'd worked with for like three years and then viggo mortensen found out and he just fuckin' bought her the horse and wouldn't let her pay him back"

    I don't think Elizabeth Olsen is trawling blogs and shaking her head at criticism, and I doubt she actually thinks about this shit when she's not on a press tour. This is a stupid response, for sure, but someone almost certainly came up to her going, "what do YOU think about people who say the MCU isn't high art?" because the number one purveyor of "people don't give Marvel enough respect," takes are sites that run entirely on hot takes and outrage clicks.

    I wanna circle back to this real quick not to re-stoke a fire (hopefully!), but to agree with you

    It was a stupid question. The difference between high and low art is largely arbitrary and often classist. Asking the question at all is trying to stoke a stupid fire, it's console war bullshit, it's only meant to incite conflict.

    I nonetheless think it's lousy for a life-long extremely rich person to invoke (fake) working-class concerns, while demonstrating a fundamental misunderstanding of said working-class' worldviews and experiences. I ain't getting on Twitter and calling for her cancellation, I don't think she's a bad person, I think she got asked a stupid question and gave a stupid answer. I like to gently remind folks that when a rich person says a thing that sounds nice, it doesn't mean it's actually nice. That superficial gestures are often an accidental metaphor for less-spoken-of power disparities.

    It ain't fair to put actors in these hot seats, to make them speak to how culture views art. They're talented craftsmen, who do an impossible thing and do it well. It isn't their job to talk about the intersection of art and commerce, they shouldn't have to speak on it. But nor should they be praised for defending the honor of people who didn't ask for their honor to be defended, in ways that conveniently shield actors from criticism.

    Edit: If Elizabeth Olsen said crews should be paid more, that unions should have stronger rights, that work days/weeks should be shorter, that'd be one thing. She said that reviews are what disrespect crews. Fuck that, imo

    So I had a weird experience at my showing of Doctor Strange. Trailers are rolling, dude in front of me, probably late 20's ish?

    Super super stoked for Avatar.
    Super stoked for Thor.
    Jurassic World trailer plays all the way through. Dude is losing his shit.

    Gets to the end of the trailer, which they show only the classic T-Rex skeleton logo and no title, and he no shit turns to his buddy and says:
    "Dude, what movie is that?!"
    Friend chuckles, then double takes. "Wait, seriously?"
    "Yeah, that looked freaking awesome."
    "Uh...Jurassic World?"
    "Oh man, that looks dope as hell. Do you think they'll make a series out of it?"

    The friend was just dumbfounded.

    After Doctor Strange, I was behind them leaving the theater and the dude was making is friend google Jurassic Park.

    I yearn for the days where I had the time to just watch and listen to every commentary track/special feature on a DVD, like back to back. Not even good shit, just like "oh, Last Samurai and 13 Days have a couple commentaries each, sure why not?".

    If you want to know hell listen to any commentary track on a Farrelly Brothers movie.

    It is some of the least interesting shit imaginable, just them pointing out each and every one of their friends they brought on for a walk on part. Really cool for their friends—I'd do the same! But really I wanna know more about the craft of transitioning from Jim Carrey pooping on the lawn to a close-up shot of soft-serve ice cream being poured, damnit! That's the good stuff.

    I'm not sure if it's my favorite, although I very rarely listen to commentary tracks so it might be

    But there's a track for Scott Pilgrim that is just the actors who played all the ancillary characters (Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick, and Mark Webber) having to record at eight am while hungover the day after a cast party

    It's not good in many technical senses but I find it deeply enjoyable

    The Venture Brothers commentary tracks are great.

    Can't not mention Ben Affleck on Armageddon.

    I like all the Kevin Smith commentsries he just knows how to tell a story and gives cool insights into how movies are made.
