Stanley Kubrick

I discovered the films of Stanley Kubrick about 4 years ago, and since then I have watched his films many times and studied them in depth. I believe that all of his films are greater than the books they are based on. I believe that his films have more intellectual depth, are made with more skill and talent than almost any book. I cannot say this about any other filmmaker. Kubrick also put years of research into all of his films, claiming to read "every available book" on the subjects which his films were based on.

If you haven't seen these films, they are masterpieces and you should watch them ASAP:
>Dr. Strangelove
>2001: A Space Odyssey
>A Clockwork Orange
>Barry Lyndon
>The Shining
>Full Metal Jacket
>Eyes Wide Shut

        That's part of what makes them so good though.

      Rob is hit or miss Some of his takes are beyond retarded like Kubrick using movie magic to make the sky disappear in the shining when it's obviously an overcast day in the afternoon, but says them with such authority. He honestly comes off as annoying manchild.

    I'm going to reveal how filtered I am. I do not like Kubric. At all

    >Dr. Strangelove
    Only film of his I actually like. It's good.
    >2001: A Space Odyssey
    I appreciate aspects of it but don't find it enjoyable to watch. It's decent but meh. 2010 is better lmao
    >A Clockwork Orange
    I've never sat down and watched it from beginning to end. My dad made me watch it as a kid and I've never appreciated it.
    >Barry Lyndon
    Tried to watch it, watched 30 minutes, kind of interesting but not enough that I continued watching it
    >The Shining
    Don't care for it at all. Doctor Sleep is however kino
    >Full Metal Jacket
    Not a good movie.
    >Eyes Wide Shut
    Never saw it, Hollywood pedos creep me out, I'd probably enjoy it but I just don't want to watch it

      I mostly agree, Kubrick and Scorsese are my exceptions, but Herman Mankiewicz wrote Citizen Kane.

    I have two choices
    1. Sleep and be fully rested and ready to tackle the work day tomorrow, without regrets
    2. Watch Eyes Wide Shut for the first time, while I'm already on a Cruise Kick from Maverick.. but be more tired tomorrow, and also risk falling asleep watching the movie which is a think that could happen

    Not a great compliment considering he mostly adapted mediocre books. e-boita is the exception and the book is indisputably better

    I see that you've stopped trying to shill your retarded opinion in LULZ.

    When you grow up and start reading the classics properly then you will see how stupid you were.

    What the hell is up with this alt right terminology, you didn't "discover" it you illiterate motherfucker, you found out about it from watching people on the internet praising them, you didn't embark on a personal journey into the unknown unaware of what you'd might find. Try to read some more, you're lexicon is high school tier at best

    I know OP is trolling, but I'll rant on Kubrick anyway.
    Kubrick obviously has a reading issue, like adhs or something, I just don't want to believe that he is such an arrogant cunt that he thinks rewriting masterpieces of literature is in any way acceptable.
    There is no other explanation as to why he missed the point of every fucking single book he dared making into a movie.
    The theme of Shining, the ending of Clockwork Orange, the point of Dream Novel.
    He's a genius technician yea, but his story telling, not that great.

    I have Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut on my watch list, but have watched the rest. I would rate the novel A Clockwork Orange higher than the film, but I still think the film is nearly perfect. Full Metal Jacket is infinitely rewatchable, and The Shining was a very innovative, if a bit boring horror movie.
