Oh look, it's Contact 2: Interstellar Boogaloo. My goosebump inducing books on my sci fi shelf weren't farking emo tearjerkers, they were man v environment, robots, cat-berserkers, and other galactic peoples. This looks like one my 13-yo self would pass on.

Why don't you just allow all scripts? I don't get you people who have all JS turned off by default. Most of today's websites are not functional without it. I tried going that way for awhile, I got annoyed with constantly having to allow certain scripts in order for a site to work. Just use AdBlock to get rid of annoying shiat. By shutting off all scripting you're needlessly crippling your web experience.

It truly doesn't matter.

The various adblockers and the default settings of browsers to prevent third party cookies keeps scripts from being loaded, and when loaded from working.

On the page in question,  http://www.shortlist.com/entertainment/films/new-trailer-for-interste l lar-lands, my adblocker (µBlock  Chrome) is turned off,

and the video (if it's there) still doesn't load

And as a matter of fact, I am not blokcing any script. I allow all scripts to load and to run, and my guess is, a script is failing because it can't set a tracking cookie.

Chrome's default settings tell me these cookies were blocked

i.imgur.com

And that's it. Oh, am I supposed to recognize which CDN or third party script tool providing video in response to tracking me I need to allow to watch some crappy video?

I don't think so.

Plenty of sites can present their video without farking my browser (and me) over.

At first glance to my mostly layman eyes,

It looks like a lot of third party cookie crap and third party iframe violations on top of some general shiatty webmastering.

It makes perfect sense.

Goosebumps was a series of tween horror books.  You put books on a bookshelf.

You probably really liked Iron Man (all of them), X Men (all of them), Star Trek (Abrams 1 & 2), Transformers (all of them), Marvel Universe (all of them), Tom Cruise In Space Movie (all of them). It's okay. Having no taste just means you can have a good time watching CGI paint dry. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Wait... I can understand Transformers... but the rest are actually quality movies (for the most part).  So tell me, what do you consider to be a good movie?

You got most of it. A couple of things for accuracy - not a big fan of Bay, so exclude Transformers. Abrams' Star Trek was actually enjoyable. Iron Man, X-Men, and Marvel were ok. I'll admit that I saw most, but not all.

I know this isn't popular, but I do like most of Tom Cruise, particularly his later work.

I also like most of Nolan's work, as well as Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson, the Coen's, the Wachowski's, Spielberg, Scott, Wes Anderson, and Del Toro, etc.

I think CGI done well is good. If that means you think I have no taste, well.. I am so very ashamed that you think so.  You are so much more superior.

I read the screenplay the other day, clearly an earlier version since a lot of elements have changed (Murph was a son not a daughter) and I doubt the final would leak. The film had some nice ideas, the third act was a complete mess but could have been cleaned up to keep in some of the big ideas. Christopher Nolan for me has a track record of being completely incapable of relating to the human condition or understanding what could plausibly motive his characters, but I have hope that this could be some descent scifi. However, it might just turn into a more serious Mission to Mars without the awesomeness of frozen-head Tim Robbins and Gary Sinise being Gary Sinise.

I'm amused by the whole "kill yourself" meme that's suddenly sprouted up.  Is this the latest ITG parlance, or a new take on the stop liking what I don't like meme?  Hard to say.  As for your points, yes, CGI done well is good (whatever the hell that means), but I remember those halcyon days when acting, writing, and directing were also a part of cinema.  Now, apparently, it's pretty much all disaster porn, and people such as yourself enjoy it.  That's fine.  But don't pretend to be superior because you think CGI makes a good film.  Take a look at Gravity, for chrissakes.  Beautiful CGI.  shiatty script, horrible plotting, worse acting.

At what point did I say that I am superior because CGI makes a good film?  For that matter, when did I make the statement that CGI makes a film good?

You know what I think makes a good film? Good story, good acting, and good CGI if that's what a scene requires.

As for Gravity, I liked it. The story was simple and the acting was good. Clooney and Bullock are capable actors. You might think otherwise, but to each his own.

Yeah, sounded like Armageddon from the first movie.

That being said, if there's any director out there that can make a shiatty trailer and still convince me to see his work, it's Christopher Nolan. He's earned that. I don't always love his work, but I usually like it.

You seem like an idiot so I'll try to choose my words carefully. I was giving my opinion on that specific movie. You're response here is over generalize based on what I said about Gravity.

Yes, I think you can have good movies with simple plots and good acting. I don't think you need a complicated plot for audiences to enjoy and appreciate good story telling.
