What do you think about film??

What is the future of film!

It is truly the art of the 20th century is it????????

I think in the future there will be movies with lots and lots and lots of sound (not sound how you think, all sound and no...nothing good.)

The Hollywood studio system pretty much blows and is causing the industry to stagnate pretty bad, but there are still some good movies that come out on occasion. It doesn't really take much for a movie to impress me though, I'm not all that picky when it comes to films.

I wouldn't say film is necessarily the art of the 20th century. While it is art from the 20th century, you forget that the musical arts were at their creative peak in the 20th century also. And painting and sculpture evolved more in the 20th century than they had in, well, forever. The thing with film is there is only so little that can be done until someone can justifiably complain, "This is a rehash." That's where Hollywood is, and nobody is brave enough to go completely off the wall and try something new.

I think the future of film lies like all art forms. You have the purists who stick with the formula that works and isn't "weird". You have your geniuses you find the perfect mix between something "weird" and something that everyone can grasp. And you have your people dancing on top of their box that make completely "weird" films.

Well, I do not see a real sort of revolution in film happening anytime soon because the only people who see the truly innovative films are the arthouse snobs who already really like cinema and know how artistic it can be. Most people are content with hollywood and it keeps in bringing in mass amounts of money, so~~. Even most film students would rather talk about and emmulate Tarentino and Burton than say Fritz Lang and Godard. XD;

I've never seen an art film, I saw the beginning of one when we walked into the wrong theatre, but my friends wanted to leave. I liked it (It was animated), I remember one scene was of an orchestra rehearsing and one guy said "Your violin is flat" and she said "ah, I see" and someone else said "But I feel it adds to the piece", "yes, being slightly flat" or something, it was all a fast conversation. xDD I loved that!

Is anyone going to see Lady in the Water? It's produced by Warner Brothers, and there was a preview before Harry Potter. It was lots of loud classical music (loud in a sort of saturating way), and a janitor was doing janitor things, and then he went home and was writing on a pad of yellow paper to Italian opera (I liked that especially, the yellow paper made the whole scene a good color). and then he saw something in a swimming pool, and then the title was given. Katherine said like "ew, there's such a thing as too artsy" (but it's Warner Brothers!!!11 I didn't know that yet, but I should have said so.) I think she would think the future is way too artsy.

As for the future of film, Katherine wants to be a director, and she has taken classes! Haha xP
