[spoilers] The King's Speech (2010) - just something I noticed

I watched it for the third time or so today.It really is a masterpiece of externally demonstrating ("showing") audiences the importance of speech.The way speech affects other peoples' perception of you is shown in so many little ways that I had not noticed before, such as:When Elizabeth (George's wife) initally meets Lionel, she doesn't use received pronunciation. After he learns her true identity, she reverts back to using it; showing how closely even subtle changes in speech are associated with rank and perception.When Lionel is auditioning for King Lear, he stammers briefly, saying "wi--with--with". The people he is auditioning for immediately stop him. They point out his diction, and remark on his Australian accent. This demonstrates: 1. Stutters can be associated with fear and anxiety, 2. A stutter can damage other peoples' confidence in and perception of you, 3. How you speak can define your "role" in society, just like how he spoke prevented him from becoming "king" (with obvious parallels to how George's stutter may threaten his role as king.)Anyway, just wanted to share! I'm still in the middle of watching it so I might edit this post as I go along. via /r/movies

Phone Booth (2002) - A totally forgotten film with Colin Farrell at its best needs a rewatch

I'm not sure why the movie got so forgotten, but that shouldn't have happened. Phone Booth is a classic chamber play that is almost exclusively performed by Colin Farrell in an old phone booth in New York.Joel Schumacher (director), Matthew Libatique ( cinematography) and Larry Cohen (script) keep the tension high throughout the film and are masters at leaving out useless things. With a running time of almost 80 minutes, this makes for an extremely entertaining experience. After seeing the film again after almost 20 years, I can only recommend giving it another chance. You will not regret it. via /r/movies

Interstate 70 in Colorado

Interstate 70 in Colorado.
Interstate 70 passes through Colorado on its route between its western terminus at Cove Fort, Utah, and its eastern at Baltimore, Maryland. In western Colorado, the highway connects the metropolitan areas of Grand Junction and Denver via a route through the Rocky Mountains. Bicycles are allowed on those stretches of I-70 in the Rockies where no other through route exists. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) lists the construction of I-70 among the engineering marvels undertaken in the Interstate Highway system. The Eisenhower Tunnel, with a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet (3,401 m) and length of 1.7 miles (2.7 km), is the longest mountain tunnel and highest point along the Interstate Highway System. The portion through Glenwood Canyon was completed on October 14, 1992, one of the final pieces of the Interstate Highway System to open to traffic, and one of the most expensive rural highways per mile built in the United States.

Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) has gone through more traumatic horrors in the Alien Franchise that most characters in a film series don't

I just did a marathon of the first four movies, the Alien Quadrilogy and kept track of all that Sigourney Weaver character goes through in the course of 4 films.To start even when we first meet her, she is in space having left her 11 year old or so daughter at home. Even with her survival she will never see her daughter or anyone from home ever again. Ever. The first film is to the point and beautiful, an alien comes on board she has to witness it burst out of her buddies chest killing him, all her teammates are killed so she is left alone with a cat to fight off an ugly scar alien herself. Its traumatic. Also the cyborg they brought along she thought she could trust turned on them..but she makes it out aliveOnly to wake up in the sequel 57 years later. She finds out her daughter who was 66 just died at home before she awoke. She's talked into going to a colony by another person who will betray her just to fight off more aliens. Everyone she gets to know is killed...the two survivors HIcks and little girl Newt she goes back into danger multiple times to save and risk her life to save the little girl multiple times because of a mother/daughter connection to make it to Safety...Just to find both were killed off screen while she was in orbit. All that time and energy spent bonding with a little girl who lost her entire family just for her to be lost just like that...oh also Ripley is now pregnant with an alien and is the only woman on an all male prison planet? Again everyone she meets or in case of a Lannister develops feelings for killed for her to survive just to realize she must kill herself now. After all the effort of several films to survive she now wants nothing more but to die, though its the only option and would put her at peace finally in a way...Just to be woken (cloned) again in 4th film. She finally made peace to die and now they bring her back again except she's not fully herself and she birthed an alien.. the fact its also 200 years in the future is also probably exhausting as well but again she must fight and kill her alien children and finally does make it to earth after hundreds of years except she's not really herself and earth is nothing like earth to her by now anyway.Like, damn, her story has a lot of suffering. via /r/movies

1080° Snowboarding

1080° Snowboarding.
1080° Snowboarding is a 1998 snowboarding video game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development and published by Nintendo. It was released for the Nintendo 64 and re-released in 2008 for the Wii's Virtual Console. In the game, the player controls one of five snowboarders from a third-person perspective, using a combination of buttons to snowboard past flags, jump and perform tricks over eight levels. The objective is either to arrive quickly at a level's finish line or to receive maximum points for grabbing or spinning the board in trick combinations. 1080° was announced in November 1997 and developed over the course of nine months; it garnered critical acclaim and won an Interactive Achievement Award from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. It sold over two million units, and a second installment, 1080° Avalanche, was released for the Nintendo GameCube in November 2003.

What are some of the best movie "B plots"?

I love Kirsten Dunst's character arc in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". In fact, after watching that movie a few times, I've developed a deeper appreciation for the "C plot"(?) of Carrie and Rob (David Cross)'s relationship. In general, I think subplots and secondary characters sometimes emerge more clearly upon rewatching the movie.What are some other "B plots" that drew you in? via /r/movies
