No..He drags on movies forever and then drops the surprise ending on you at the end that makes you "think". They really arent that good. The village was by far the worst movie I have watched. The happening is 2nd cause people died in some crazy ways. Other than that I would rather watch AI for the rest of my life.
AI wasn't bad either just long as hell. You really didn't have to think at the end any of M. Night's movies. It was already out in front of you.

Kubrick shouldnt be mentioned for the last 30 years he only had 2 good movie which was Full Metal Jacket and the Shining.



My top 3 all time regardless of era:

1. Scorsese
2. Sergio Leone
3. Alfred Hitchcock

Hitchcock would take a big s**t on Bergman and he would admit that.
Actually, no he wouldn't...

Bergman on Alfred Hitchcock:

"I think he's a very good technician. And he has something in Psycho (1960), he had some moments. "Psycho" is one of his most interesting pictures because he had to make the picture very fast, with very primitive means. He had little money, and this picture tells very much about him. Not very good things. He is completely infantile, and I would like to know more - no, I don't want to know - about his behavior with, or, rather, against women. But this picture is very interesting."


By the way, as to my own opinion, as good as Hitchcock was(Vertigo is incredible), Bergman just as an artist, s**ts all over him... I mean was there ever a single truly personal theme in a Hitchcock movie?... C'mon Son.

Its a fact based on their filmography and impact on film. Ive never heard anyone say Bergman is better than Hitchcock thats an absurd statement.

What pissed you off? Only reason why ppl most hate the village is because they were mislead which I think is funny.
What pissed me off? Well...

*takes a deep breath*

Everything about it was just bad. I cannot think of a single good thing in that movie. The acting was terrible... Adrian Brody acting like a retarded manchild just annoyed the living sh*t out of me. And, I swear to God, Bryce Dallas Howard cannot play a blind character convincingly at all. All she does is look up. I mean... what the f*ck is that?!

The cinematography was atrocious with these long 70's cop show style zoom in shots that were just ugly. Nothing was scary about the movie. And then, when they wanted to try and do something scary, they would have loud noises play randomly that has nothing to do with the film at all. And there's the musical score, what has to be the worst soundtrack for a movie I have heard in a long time.

And then, it leads us to this climax that nullifies the rules of that particular universe that it tried so hard to explain to us. It's like M. Night got so tired of trying to sell us on this premise, that he just gave up and said "f*ck it", so he could insert an obligatory twist ending so he can coast to the end of the movie. It's one of the laziest, most god-awful piece of sh*t endings I have ever seen. I hate that f*ckin movie so much. I literally felt like k!lling somebody when the credits rolled.

Based on their Filmography?

"Winter Light"
"The Seventh Seal"
"Persona"
"Cries and Wispers"
"Wild Strawberries"
"Through A Glass Darkly"
"Scenes From A Marriage"
"The Virgin Spring"

Hitchcock is f**ken with that? Man gtfoh... Matter of fact, let me take that back, because it is all about personal taste. So let me just say that I disagree... As I don't want to get into a long dispute about this... Maybe you prefer or are more impressed by suspence, where as I find that making a truly personal film, not to mention several incredibly personal films one after the other, is a greater feat...

And as to having never heard anyone say Bergman was better, I'll share a few with you...

Woody Allen on Bergman: "Probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera."

Paul Schrader on Bergman: "I would not have made any of my films or written scripts such as Taxi Driver had it not been for Ingmar Bergman... What he has left is a legacy greater than any other director.... I think the extraordinary thing that Bergman will be remembered for, other than his body of work, was that he probably did more than anyone to make cinema a medium of personal and introspective value."

Ang Lee on Bergman: "For me the filmmaker Bergman is the greatest actor of all. His vision and his filmic force, the thing that the Frenchmen call auteur. What Kurosawa and Fellini also have Ė but to me Bergman is number one!"

And I don't have a direct quote, but Kubrick also held Bergman in the absolute highest asteem... A company he did not put Hitchcock in.

David Lynch holds Bergman in higher asteem.

Robert Altman held Bergman in higher asteem.

And of course, you can add me to the list of having said it.

And? Those 2 as a combo beat out many of these directors whole career. People are naming M. "twist" Knight that tells it all.

The Shining is still a top 5 of the past 30.

Bergman was a writer, Hitch wasn't you idiot. Hitch was a director so personal themes can't be used as a measuring stick. Psycho was done in low budget as a homage to 50's B horror and in turn created the slasher genre.

Hitchcock is one of a kind, from 1925 to 1976 the man helped support the golden age of cinema.

Seriously. I can't think of a more formulaic director than that dude. He f**king sucks.

Seventh Seal, Strawberries, and Virgin Spring are awesome no doubt about it, but you are comparing Sweden's best to one of Earths best, I agree with dude above and we never do but there is too much Hitchcock classics to even debate with you over this.

The title is about the past 30 years, if you want to turn off subject I can list several directors from or outside US that are better than Bergman last 90 years.

Actually I will

Alfred Hitchcock
Kurosawa (no explanation needed if you watch film, tell me he isn't personal and I gotta list of films waiting)
Fritz Lang
Federico Fellini
Roman Polanski

I would stick Bergman in there as a possible 5th but you are stretching his skills.

I agree that the Shinning is one of the best movies of the past 30 years and Full Metal Jacket is my favorite Kubrick movie next to the Shinning but Eyes Wide Shut was just so damn bad imo its really ended his career like Jordan on the Wizards. My original comment was for Kubrick being mentioned as the best for the last 30 years which I cannot agree with for said reasons. All time hes top 3-4 imo. I never liked Space Odyssey, Clockwork Orange, or Dr Strangelove but Paths of Glory, The k!lling, Shinning, Full Metal Jackets, and Spartacus are some of my favorite movies.

You can't ignore his first two movies, but as a whole I would have to agree he isn't a top director or even a great one consistently at all. His last movie isn't even worth mentioning.
