for a guy thats made 5 movies in a 37 year career, i'd say 2 movies in less than 3 years is pretty good production for Malick. and Olga Kurylenko was awesome in "Centurion."

Need to see Tree of Life now.
Sept. 18, 2010, 4:36 p.m. CST
It's fucking obscene how beautiful that film looks. Every shot could be a famous painting. <p> Wonder if Malick senses the clock ticking and wants to get busy on a few things.

Slowly working himself back into Hollywoods good books .... Good luck mate, stay low and AVOID any and all blockbusters.
Sept. 18, 2010, 4:55 p.m. CST
That's a great question, he wasn't sure, but the rumors were that Christian Bale was in town, and the restaurant was had uncharacteristically LA looking people in it at the bar hitting on women, and then a balding guy wlaked in with a tall stylish guy... and my friend knew that this was Malick's hometown, and that he was rumored to be in town, so he got the nerve to just walk up and ask " Are you Terence Malick?" and he smiled and answered " I am" or something like that. And my friend told him he was a fan and had Days of Heaven on blu-ray... and Malick was nice about it. Unlike say some others you could ru into...
Sept. 18, 2010, 5:08 p.m. CST
And combined with Olga, I was sorely disappointed at first, but the mention of Malick compensated.
Sept. 18, 2010, 5:15 p.m. CST
And had been replaced by Affleck? <p> Any way, can't wait for more Malick! Any chance we'll see this before Tree of Life... <p> I am gutted that Criterion don't make their Blu-rays region free. What arseholes. I want that Thin Red Line release for the Mickey Rourke scenes alone.

And whenever he shoots a film, he's like "Yo, Big G, how do you think I should frame this motherfucker?", and then God just shifts the camera to the exact right position and whispers in Malick's ear what lens he should use. And then Malick's like "Hey, how about some lightning in the background there, fella?" And then God changes the weather and the heavens split open and lightning strikes. True story.

Well, his films don't make money for one thing. Love the man, but that is the truth. There are other problems. He doesn't seems to plan his movies that well. His editing takes longer than most movie production cycles. Since "Days of Heaven," he hasn't been able to just "put the horn down" and close the damn movie. He's always tinkering and reshooting and, of course, editing again. Yes, he's a genius and we are all advised to just let him "gene," but it is starting to get annoying. I never thought I would be critical of the man but lately I'm beginning to think enough is a enough. He makes Kubrick look like a speed demon.
Sept. 18, 2010, 10:15 p.m. CST
Looks to be a Red One. But very stripped down. The follow-focus has been rigged high above the lens which is slightly unusual. No eyepiece, just the monitor instead which is also very forward mounted. No matt-box or filter tray either, which diminishes it's 'movie' look as well.
Sept. 18, 2010, 10:40 p.m. CST

What an overrated hack. The guy did make two solid films in Badlands and Days of Heaven. But holy fuck, Thin Red Line and that Colin Farrel movie were laughably bad. Enough with the pretentious voice-overs and pretty nature shots.
Sept. 18, 2010, 11:40 p.m. CST

Must be making up for the time lost between Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line. No complaint from me, though. I think The New World was his best film yet. In fact, each movie he's made has been better than the previous. So Tree of Life might just make me cum to death.

For fuck sakes, the guy made ONE good movie back in 1973 (Badlands), another shit one in 78 (Days of Heaven), did NOTHING for twenty years and, for some fucking reason, everyone acted like Jesus Fucking Christ had came back from the dead to Direct The Thin Red Line (1998), which had ALREADY BEEN ADAPTED in 1964. The movie itself was a boring and ponderous piece of fucking shit that added NOTHING to the World War 2 film genre never mind that it was OBLITERATED by Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan the same year.<br> <br>Then the fuckstick sits on his ass for another seven years until unloading the bowel movement known as The New World which was another rancid, coma inducing fucking snoozefest and had some of the most atrocious editing I have ever seen in a major motion picture. Seriously, have any of you watched that fucking trash? There are shots where characters are facing one way before dipshit cuts to another shot where they have turned around and are now looking at the camera. This is Ed Wood level’s of editing from this wanker and yet sars are STILL eager to work with him because of this undeserved reputation he has cultivated as some sort of Kubrickesque master Director when the guy hasn’t made a fucking decent film in almost 40 motherfucking years!!!<br> <br>This really burns my ass because Brian DePalma, who’s only three years older then that shitstain Malick, has made some fucking incredible movies over the years (Carrie, Scarface, Phantom of the Paradise, Blow Out), a fuckload of good ones (The Untouchables, Mission : Impossible, Carlito’s Way), a some shit ones (The Fury, Bonfire of the Vanities, Mission To Mars, Black Dahlia etc….) while also being one of the few true auteur’s/independent filmmakers of the 1960’s and 70’s along side Scorcese and Coppola. But even he can’t get a fucking feature made these days while this cocksucker Malick (who has NEVER made anything as good as DePalma’s best) has a blank check thrown at him and half of Hollywood beating down his door to work with him. That’s just not right never mind that dipshit has never had a hit movie. EVER!!! WHAT!!!THE!!!FUCK!!!
Sept. 19, 2010, 8:30 a.m. CST
Well that's somewhat disappointing.
Sept. 19, 2010, 9:08 a.m. CST
I love when someone like you calls a movie like DAYS OF HEAVEN "shit" in the second line of his rant. It means I don't have to read, let alone take seriously, any of the shit he says next.
Sept. 19, 2010, 9:28 a.m. CST
And not even the cool modern cards with little digital music players, but the old boring ass cards...
Sept. 19, 2010, 10:08 a.m. CST
why disappointed? It could be that Red footage has resolution and depth that records a base picture that is arguably more robust than film, and could be manipulated by a talented colorist to look like any known film stock or even something new that has character.
Sept. 19, 2010, 10:40 a.m. CST
That man is a genius. Odd how he is very prolific all of a sudden.Same With Werner Herzog.Whatever the reason, keep them coming!
Sept. 19, 2010, 10:53 a.m. CST
Couldn't agree more. For me, The New World, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and There Will Be Blood are the best American films of the past decade. I'm really curious about the mention of the Red. Never thought Malick would shoot on digital. Thought Tree of Life would all be shot on 65mm. Maybe seeing Soderbergh's work on the Red for his Che movies made an impression on Malick?

Sept. 19, 2010, 12:10 p.m. CST
Wow, I highly recommend everyone check out the DVD vs. Blu-Ray screenshots comparison for The Thin Red Line at DVDBeaver.com. We've come to expect a Blu-Ray transfer to look at least a little better than the DVD transfer, yet the difference in this case is quite stunning. It makes me feel like I've been watching the movie in the wrong way for however many years. This is one of those rare times when I KNOW I have to re-buy a movie. I have read a couple reviews of the movie's new Criterion blu-ray, and both of them basically said this is one of the best looking blu-rays available, and it will become a demo disc for many that have a nice home theater setup. I am so excited now to get the movie on blu-ray in just over a week.
Sept. 19, 2010, 1:31 p.m. CST
Pretty trees get old after a while. His films have little story and are a huge snoozefest. The Thin Red Line was a terrible adaptation of the book.
Sept. 19, 2010, 1:39 p.m. CST
There were so many stone cold idiots here at AICN. Here's a hint: if you spend a lot of time calling films without explosions or transforming alien robots "boring"...then you might just be an idiot. That word is always a giveaway.
Sept. 19, 2010, 2:46 p.m. CST
... who can't understand why Terence Malick is asuperior talent and his movies are great. I pity those fools. Poor, poor fools.
Sept. 19, 2010, 3:29 p.m. CST
I've been on lots of RED shoots, and while the footage looks great, it still has that inescapable "HD" look and feel. I'm sure an artist like Malick will be able to make it look so great we wouldn't be able to tell the difference (I'm no expert, but seeing the projects I've worked on, I prefer the film look over the RED). I guess I hoped Malick would be one of the holdout filmmakers continuing to put beautiful images on celluloid instead of a hard drive.
Sept. 19, 2010, 3:47 p.m. CST
I was suprised the CHE movies were shot digitally. Specially the second movie, which looks more "photographic". Maybe digital filming has come of age. I'm sure some pleople will still want to shot with film, even if digital becames the norm, like how some people still shoot films black and white in this day of colour cinematography. Or maybe somebody will created a film so good to shoot with that will put digital on hold.
Sept. 19, 2010, 4:01 p.m. CST

Sept. 19, 2010, 4:27 p.m. CST
But will tank when Wall Street 2 comes out.
Sept. 19, 2010, 5:08 p.m. CST
The last hour or so of that really comes into focus and I'd say it's as strong as any film I've seen. I do wonder if there are pacing problems getting to that though. Ironically, I think Malick actually told Andrew Dominik that, I read. Is he going ahead with the Cormac McCarthy project? He seems to have difficulty getting films made. Wonderful photography and music and I loved the way the narrator made it feel like a book. Tough trick to pull off.
Sept. 19, 2010, 5:11 p.m. CST
wewt! hot pictures! go aicn go! yay!
Sept. 19, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
The inescapable HD look is escapable when yu have an creative and artistic colorist (as opposed to a technically proficient one that relies on scopes and rules). I've seen how you can apply layers and certain details to mimic the organic "natural" flaws and charactersitics of film, everything from microscopically shifting the frames by one pixel randomly to slight bumps in certain curves on the colors only on certain ranges... it can be made to fool experts! But it takes the talent and creativity. I bet Mallick will spend enough time getting it to look just like he wants. But the film look is just a look.... film stock in itself is such a different looking thing now than it was in the 60's and 70's. In my experience raw RED footage is a very plain looking start. Very real, and very blank. It's not like the canon 5D/&D footage that amateurs love that has crushed color correction built in resulting in Canon's blanket predetermined color aesthetic spreading like zombies everywhere.
Sept. 19, 2010, 6:43 p.m. CST
I personally found no pacing issues with the film. I have had a few people tell me it's one of the slowest movies they've ever seen, yet I am intrigued and engaged by every minute of the movie. Some of the slowest, longest scenes are actually the most tension-filled and thoughtful in the movie.
Sept. 19, 2010, 7:20 p.m. CST
Who says just because someone finds Malick's films "Boring", that they need non-stop action and explosions to be interested? It is possible to like movies that build slowly and tell a good story and still not enjoy Malick's films.

think that just because a lot of people don't like malick films then they must like Michael Bay films. News for you guys, Malick isn't the only one making intelligent movies, he's the only one that makes boring ones. I might add his films don't make that much money either due to the lack of interest!<p>I hate to make it a point to you but Inception did very well at the box office and it was an intelligent movie that also engaging without putting you to sleep!
Sept. 20, 2010, 2:53 a.m. CST
Every single time a Malick talkback appears on this site, BigTuna, Dood and BiggusDickus show up and start complaining about how "boring" his films are, with nothing new or insightful to add. I'm starting to think they're the same person. Guys, you don't like Malick films. We get it. Why the fuck are you here? You're like a dog scrathing on a door. It's just the same thing over and over again with you. You've made your statement; you clearly don't have anything more to say. Let it go. Move on. Let those of us who do think the man's a cinematic genius do so. I actually come to these talkbacks to get new info on his films, not to have "boring" and monotonous arguments. <p> rosasaks, Dominik's next film is Blonde, starring Naomi Watts (it's about Marilyn Monroe. I'm very excited). <p> HansBubi, I absolutely agree. I'm completely smitten with every single frame of that film and wanted the experience to last longer as well. Apparently there's a 4 hour cut out there somewhere. We can only hope we'll get to see it one day (just like that 6 hour cut of The Thin Red Line, daunting as it may sound).
Sept. 20, 2010, 3:30 a.m. CST
Still a'trollin the Malickbacks? I understand that you don't like Malick's movies. More power to you, but what's with the insistance on this whole "boring" spiel of yours? Is it because you're anonymous? Makes you lose your perspective towards other people and their own take on certain filmmakers does it? Don't forget we're entitled to our opinions just as much as you are yours. I realized I made a joke at your expense in a previous Malickback and apologized for it. Are you big enough to apologize to everyone for being such a twat? I very much doubt it!<p>Look, I understand being contrary to fish for attention in the talkbacks, I get it. But always in every single Malick talkback? Don't you feel dumb pretending his movies aren't brilliant? Is it really worth it just to get some attention?<p>News for you D o o d, Nolan isn't the only one making intelligent movies, but he's the only one that makes ones that fanboys like because he happened to make THE DARK KNIGHT (otherwise you'd think he was the guy who made FAR AND AWAY or some shit). I hate to make it a point to you but Malick has done just fine at the box office (enough to continue making beautiful films that is) and it was with intelligent movies that are also engaging without "boring" all us adults to tears with a bunch of explosions or transforming alien robots.<p>Oh, and I hope you found this post of mine excessively "boring", completely unoriginal, and childish as fuck, because that's exactly how I feel about every single one of yours.

I was actually responding to people who make the silly statement that those who don't like malicks films must be stupid as he makes intelligent films. So my response is simply that he may make intelligent films but they are, for me and a lot of people like me, quite boring. I have no issues with slow as I loved the above mentioned film Assassination of Jesse James and many others.<p>I respect the fact that you enjoy his films and wouldn't want to impose my taste on others. I personally, at the end of the day, want value for money. So if I am paying my good hard earned cash, I don't care if the director has amazing beautiful vistas of slow panning obtuse camera angles. If it's there and the movie is good then it's a bonus! Nothing beats an engaging story told well. As for apologising for being a twat, I don't think I was, and if you took it that way then I sincerely apologise!
