    i signed up for this site because of this video alone. this has been my greatest gripe with movies for the past five or six years. the idea that cinematography and artistic style can be a replacement for story or character development is (in my opinion) the greatest blow to cinema. i can honestly say i prefer the look and feel to movies from the 60s and 70s because they’re more immersive (a few notable modern exceptions off the top of my mind are kill bill, pans labyrinth, and wall-e)

      Thanks nwhicher!

      I hope we can continue to provide the kind of insight that keeps you coming back on a regular basis. By the way, if you haven’t had the chance yet, you should take the time to submit an entry for our Nintendo DSi Giveaway Contest (http://lazyreviewzzz.com/2010/02/01/welcome-to-lazyreviewzzz/). 80-100 words exemplifying your laziness could win you a DSi and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

        haha thats an awesome contest idea. i feel like i’d need to think of a creative response to that, but then again, that would be counterintuitive to the idea of explaining my laziness… we’ve got a conundrum here.

          Ah, you must not have watched the video yet! “Get rewarded for your momentary non-laziness”. Hehe.

          I forgot to mention one last thing in my last comment too. If you’re enjoying the site, please pass it on to your friends! We’d love the extra readers/viewers/people to continue the conversation with.

  2. […] you’ve watched our rant titled, “Cinematic Excellence, Where Have You Gone?”, or read some of the reviews for Avatar, you’ve probably heard it being related to a film […]
