What's the last movie you've seen? The last movie thread has reached the bump limit.


last movie i watched was "free guy"

i liked the premise but it was too silly and wacky. the story could be adapted to anime and i would have liked it 100x more

it's about an online game that has really advanced ai for its npcs, and one of them gains sentience and begeins playing the game itself like a player


I saw nightmare alley. I went in expecting a cool gangster movie, holy shit it was everything I didn’t want it to be. Story is about some drifter who kills his dad and runs away. He needs work so he does oddjobs for a circus, and gets wrapped up in doing the fortune telling act. And the whole movie everyone warns him not to fall for his own lies, and the whole movie is him doing just that. And so at the very end he ends up penniless and goes to the same circus to be the geek (basically a meth addict they claim is a feral man from the jungle). The whole movie is just the main character being a huge self absorbed retard with no pay off or insight learned at the end. And pretty much every other character aside from the fortune teller succubus and his wife is also some sick asshole who exists to be some caricature of human depravity. Walked away from the movie feeling unsatisfied and disgusted. Not sure who this movie was made for or what message it was going for if any. Maybe it was just an exercise in torture porn.

The first half was good. mc highly relatable.


woah that guy was in blade runner? i need to rewatch it i suppose, i dont remember him.

I didnt like it.


High Society. 1956 version.
It was alright. I enjoy watching older movies just to see how certain attitudes and norms have changed over time.
For example in this Bing Crosby's interactions with his ex wife's underage sister come off creepily to modern sensibilities.
Find it interesting how a lot of older movies are made about upper middle class Americans too. Seems quite a niche group to make movies about but I suppose they were the ones making the movies.
Musicals are fun and it had Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra in it so it was nice. Grace Kelly is hot too.


The new Scream. Major slap in the face to Wes Craven. It will most certainly appeal more to those who use reddit and many letterboxd users.


I don’t watch any movies anymore they’re all jewish and feminist propaganda


The last movie I’ve watched was “about time”.
Its about a guy who has discovered that he can travel through times in the past and change his life-actions and choices. He uses that to get gf.


That is so undescribably lame.

I watched the extended cut of Alien3. It's a pretty decent movie, not amazing but better than critical reception suggests. I enjoyed how bleak and miserable it was. I'm guessing it upset people after Aliens which was more of a feminist empowerment narrative.

>kills in self defense the normalfag bullies
>killing them feels like poetry and as a result, he is liberated from their mental opression and his personality changes, he isn't afraid of anything or anyone anymore, he quits his job, he scoffs at normalfags
>he becomes based
This movie is great, and they portray the normalfags and its sick society in a realistic way.


>>he becomes based
are you into crab-core scene by any chance?


>he becomes based
based on what


based and jokerpilled


Yeah was pretty based to see baby shit himself for attention



it is a correct implication


no, that movie taught me something I forgot, that society and culture is in part responsible for mental health problems on people. Some like to blame the individual and forget about society. Phoenix's Joker was created by society and you only have society to blame for it. He wasn't evil, he is a casualty of society. He did nothing wrong and was abused, attacked, bullied, cheated, laughed at, and neglected from a young age and had no one to turn to. It's good for people to understand this.

I love movies!


Watched Wolf (2021)
While it had a few ok ideas it was kind of a mudled mess that couldn't really figure out what it wanted to be or do.
The ending was also kind of a let down IMO.
Shame to since the actors really got into it and tried pretty hard, but they just didn't have much to work with.


at least post the names



i'll do that next time

watched Burning. Was mainly a slog and I didn't really enjoy it. I'm going to watch Drive My Car next which is also based on a Murakami story and appears to have better reviews.


>Was mainly a slog and I didn't really enjoy it.
Same. The MC was a failed normie, the succubus was totally uninteresting and the way he dealt with her disappearance was very boring and anti-climatic. It could have been a much more interesting movie if it was about the MC bonding with the killer.


The new Matrix. It's pointless and incredibly stupid but somehow it didn't make me feel angry. What it made me feel was surprise and complete disbelief that this was even allowed to be made. From a certain point of view it's impressive.
First half of it is a morbid self aware comedy. It basically openly admits the Matrix reboot is a shameless cash grab and rubs it in your face, making fun of you for being a brainless consumer that keeps falling for this shit. It admits the film and game industries are creatively and morally bankrupt giant bait and switch cons, that at this point exist only to employ the worst people in the world.
After this bizarre unexpected confession of guilt it moves on to ordinary action movie stuff. As admitted in the first half, the absolute bare minimum is done to keep the story coherent. The plot is there only to justify the appearance of all the things a Matix movie is expected to feature: fights, slow motion, agents, robots, recognizable characters, so on. Plot points from previous movies that would be inconvenient in this unnecessary continuation are ruthlessly retconned and lampshaded. Shameless sequel and prequel hooks are included as well as the most blatant identity pandering. All of it is deliberately on the nose.
It feels like this movie is just Larry Wachowski letting everyone know that he hates his job, his creations, his environment and his audience. The Matrix which once massively influenced pop culture and helped to make it what it is today is now about pop culture giving up on itself in disgust but somehow still continuing in fully aware irony and cynicism. I won't be surprised if he kills himself eventually.

File: 1643704610428.png (6.76 MB, 2000x3000, 2:3, ClipboardImage.png) ImgOps iqdb

The Shape of Water

It is a great looking film and for it to be basicly a romance because it was well written and the lead doesn't talk the romance was tolerable.
Overall it was a really well made film. My only complaint is some of the CGI looked bad compared to the stunning practical effects.
Oh, and the version I watched didn't have any subtitles whenever Russian was spoken which was annoying. I mean I guess I got the gist of what was going on in those scenes but it still annoyed me. Not likely the fault of the film and more likely the fault of where I watched it.

Still, I think it's a really good movie.
Anyone else see it, Thoughts?


unsubtle allegory for miscegenation between white succubi and black males, hated it


Maybe you just watched too much BLACKED porn and are projecting your vile fetish onto others.


* The Big Lebowsky
I've never laughed out loud with comedy movies and this wasn't the case either. I watched it because I've seen references to the movie online since I started using the internet.
There's not much to say, I don't think it was worth watching it to understand the references online but it wasn't terrible either.

* The batman trilogy
This is my first experience with batman and superhero movies.
I watched Joker but I think it can be taken as an independent work not related to batman or superheroes.
The three movies have large parts where they show a lot of very short scenes in succesion, jumping all over the place with multitude of characters, and a lot of things happening at once. It gives a feel of things resolving and the movie coming to an end but it's still very far from it.
The three of them could have been a bit shorter.

** Batman Begins (1)
This is the cringiest movie I've ever watched and worst of the trilogy.
As the name implies it shows the origin of batman, the reasons why he becomes a superhero, how he trains and the way he acquires his gadgets.
The worst part are the first 25~ minutes or so. Bruce trains under a secret ninja clan in the mountains of some shithole. It's not as bad after this part but it's not very interesting. It sets the world for the next movies at least.
I don't know how was the reception at the time but I'm impressed it got a sequel greenlighted.

** The Dark Knight (2)
The most entertaining to watch.
The joker is the villain in this one, his sole purpose is to be batmans rival he doesn't care about anything else, no villains with grandiose objectives like the other two movies.

** The Dark knigth Rises (3)
Cringe is back but not as bad as the first movie.
This is the one with Bane, the mask meme guy.
Not as good as the third but not as bad as the first.

* Mad Max: Fury Road
This is apparently a reboot of the franchise, I haven't watched the old ones.
I couldn't get into the movie at any point, it demands to not question anything about the setting.
A post-apocalyptic desertic world ruled by an old man with an army of sick crazy fanatic soldiers with a death wish.
Resources are extremely scarce but they:
1. Have oil wells (and are able to process it)
2. Have weapon factories
3. Serve water to the population by throwing it on the ground from a large pipe on top of a mountain (?)
The movie is about a succubus running away with the old man's harem.
They encounter groups of bikers living in the desert where there's no sources of water or food or gas for the bikes…

* Ferris bueller's day off
I was bored and saw the name online. Watched around the first two thirds or so and kind of skimmed through the ending.
It's about a teenager who feings being sick to his parents to skip school.
Someone at school decides he MUST uncover the kid is skipping school because he made fun of him in a phone call. This is the stupid part of the plot, the rest is the kid going around chicago with a friend and his girlfriend.
I don't know if it was popular when it came out, but it's not worth checking nowadays.


Nope, the director himself admitted it. It's why he set the movie in the 1960s (civil rights era) and made the antagonist a bigoted white cop.

But sure, I'm the one projecting when nobody mentioned interracial porn until you came into the thread.


You simply shouldn't have mentioned miscegenation in the first place, so the onus is on you.


That's what the movie is about, you shouldn't have posted it if it triggers you so much.


It really isn't.
The director said quite often and clearly that the movie was basicly him seeing movies like the creature from the black lagoon and thinking that it would have been better if the monster got the succubus in the end.
So this was his really weird dream project since he was a child.

The monster isn't a stand in for black people. Black represent black people in the movie. The movie has nothing to do with "miscegenation".
Also the antagonist isn't even a cop.

You spent way too long on shitchan's /pol/ and it has destroyed your mind to the point of seeing shit that isn't there.


Your assertion is incorrect and unsupported by the narrative of the film.
You are just stiring up trouble.


You have nothing to support your argument.
The film has nothing to do with race mixing in the sense you are talking about.
I can support my argument.
"The film was directed by Guillermo del Toro from a screenplay he co-wrote with Vanessa Taylor.[1] Del Toro formed the idea for The Shape of Water over breakfast in December 2011 with Daniel Kraus, his future collaborator on the novel Trollhunters.[5] It was primarily inspired by del Toro's childhood memories of seeing Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) and wanting to see the Gill-man and Kay Lawrence (played by Julie Adams) succeed in their romance.[6] When del Toro was in talks with Universal to direct a remake of Creature from the Black Lagoon, he tried pitching a version focused more on the creature's perspective, where the Creature ended up together with the female lead, but the studio executives rejected the concept.[7] Additionally, the film also shows similarities to the 2015 short film The Space Between Us.[8] In placing the film in the 1960s, del Toro said "the movie is a movie about our problems today and about demonizing the other and about fearing or hating the other, and how that is a much more destructive position than learning to love and understand […] if I say once upon a time in 1962, it becomes a fairy tale for troubled times. People can lower their guard a little bit more and listen to the story and listen to the characters and talk about the issues, rather than the circumstances of the issues.""

What a far left publication thinks the meaning of the film is.

You are just pulling the that it's secretly about race mixing out of /pol/s ass.
It is abundantly clear that is not what the film is about.


>In placing the film in the 1960s, del Toro said "the movie is a movie about our problems today and about demonizing the other and about fearing or hating the other, and how that is a much more destructive position than learning to love and understand"
Who is "the other"?


That confirms what was said.
>“Politically, the film is now. It’s identical — the Cold War, the casual racism, the casual sexism, everything is the same,” he comments. “When America dreams of ‘Making America Great Again’, they’re dreaming of 1962, it’s the most magical period in America’s imagination — the space race is on, they have economic superiority, everybody can have a car in a garage and a suburban home with a TV, a wife with petticoats. Everything is golden if you’re a WASP [white Anglo-Saxon protestant], but if you’re a minority you have it very difficult.”
>The Shape Of Water puts the spotlight on marginalised characters, or as del Toro says, “invisible people”

It's about excluded minorities, that's not even a controversial statement, and it's people who support it (the director included) who call it.


Are you going to deny that things were better for WASPs and more-or-less shitty in some way or another for everyone else in 1962?


We are not discussing that, we are talking about the movie's meaning.


"We" ain't talking at all because you are just a troll.

Love & Pop (1998), directed the Hideaki Anno.

Interesting movie, inventive camera work, sometimes annoying but with a purpose. Thing is, at least from what I understood of the movie, the conclusion is the opposite to that of Evangelion.

Apocalypse Now is the only major Coppola I haven't seen yet and have been putting it off for so long mainly because I knew the ratings were a trap. I have a lot more fun watching generic comedies and action movies than I do watching things like Stalker and The Seventh Seal


It's ok, I think Adam Sandler is still making moves.

Recently I’ve watched these and enjoyed them:
- Face/Off
- Alien
- Aliens
- First Blood
- Point Break
- The Raid
- The Raid 2
- Dredd
- Nobody
- John Wick trilogy

Anyone got recommendations for easy-watching, badass action films? Sci-fi action is good too.


Given the list if you haven't seen predator then it is something you should watch.

The Protector is a pretty good martial arts film, same with ong bak.

For a wild card of a film that is different yet still action packed and easy to watch I recommend Hobo with a Shotgun and Hardcore Henry.

The Kingsman films also have well done action scenes.
Or if you want something with more gunplay as the focus then hardboiled or shoot'em up are fun watches.


A film that old I wouldn't be surprised if they used real, but dead gators processed for meat and a team of strongmen underneath to drag them about. I recall Wake of The Red Witch had some very good practical effects for giant octopus that John Wayne fought off and there wasn't an air hose or even an open ceiling to breath from.

nope they are both from frankentein



if you are not familar with king kong i would say you are more than just ignorant. it's not like king kong is some obscure thing
king kong is a popular iconic film that people who haven't seen it know of it

it's like being an american and not knowing that donald trump was president. if someone doesn't know that donald trump was president he's most likely retarded and not just ignorant


It’s a 90 year old movie that has since had countless more adaptations, remakes, etc. yeah the original is still iconic, but hardly anyone alive today has probably actually sat down and watched it.

Didn't know that, hehe. Not sure if that makes the Young Frankenstein joke funnier or not.
To be honest I didn't watch that movie, just reverse search the picture and taken for granted the second. This would kinda connect with comment 61146


For the reader's convenience


I like your reasoning, I guess it kinda clashes with a less approximate and more generalistic approach to things of mine. In a nutshell:
- It's clear that there's people who don't know King Kong that are not retarded.
- It's likely that a good portion of people who don't recognize King Kong are retarded.

By saying that people who don't know King Kong are retarded, your statement is probably more efficient and mine, on the contrary, more cautious.

Anyway, since we are debating, I would also like to suggest a movie about different ways to face an issue, the wilderness and retards (pic related)


Also, very few succubi


I can agree on the fact that these are "slow" movies (even though i vey much like them, especially 2001) except for two
Apocalypse Now, which I don't know how you can call boring unles you did know the ending.
Seventh Seal is the human condition condensed in a screening plus lots of unusual and interesting things, even on a gut level, like the flagellants or the witch. If that film didn't leave you thinking, you're either dumb or very wise




it's not that they are slow. it's that they lack anything that i would call interesting. nothing happens in them

i actually forgot what seventh seal was about. i remember hating it though

the problem with apocalypse now is that the characters are only interesting if you are a military fag and you can relate to them. i can't relate to them therefore i thought the movie was boring

i'll tell you why 2001 space odyssey is a boring piece of shit. i don't want to stare at something floating in space for 20 minutes. this whole movie is just things floating in space and nothing happening. you only get to a somewhat interesting scene with hal and even that is kind of boring because it's slow.

stalker is the most boring movie ever made. i don't know how anyone could like that movie. fuck tarkovsky.
i think people pretend to like it because of the cinematography. they forget that there is more to film than cinematography. a film could have good cinematography and still be boring as fuck because the plot is not interesting and the characters are not interesting and the dialogue is not interesting


i could relate to the characters in full metal jacket because all the characters were psychos

in apocalypse now they are all normalfags

I rewatched Crazy Samurai Musashi this morning after someone posted about it here 2 years back. It was as ridiculous and hardcore as can get. The stamina of them all blows me away. The only cut was due to a technical error but I read that they just kept fighting as intended and the audio is there to back it up. It gives insight to just how fun of a film you can make with a single cinema camera on a consumer gimbal. No lift crews, no lighting, simple VFX, and a few passionate actors is all you need to make 90 minutes of slash thriller. It's a shame they didn't get to make the film they wanted because the few prologue and epilogue scenes are really well shot and choreographed, but what we got instead was something that was never done and probably will never be done again.

Recently watched this (pic related):
It's both one of the comfiest and uncomfiest movies I've ever seen. Comfy part is the usual: Japan, relaxing atmosphere, that heartwarming je ne sais quoi
Uncomfy part is the usual: young characters, at this point, make me think of how much I fucked up in my wasted life

Uncut gems is a movie about a nasty jewish jeweler gambling addict degenerate rat. It was directed by two jewish brothers and loosely based on their father's life.
I recommend you watch it, adam sandler does a great job at playing a jewish normaltrash


Isn't sandler jewish himself?


We get it. You are a racist that hates jews.
Oh how edgy and original. Can you fuck off now and stop shitting up the thread with identity politics like you did when someone posted the swamp monster movie.

that's what made the movie even better.
> You are a racist
we all are to a certain extent and that's a good thing
>that hates jews
I hate greed, and therefore greedy characters like the one Adam Sandler played in the movie
>stop shitting up the thread with identity politics
I don't know about politics. Is saying that a character in a movie is a jewish scum because, in fact, he is and you'd know that yourself if you had watched the movie Uncut Gems, getting into politics? I don't think so.
> like you did when someone posted the swamp monster movie
That wasn't me and I'm not that other poster in the first place.

You should get a life or watch some movies instead of picking up fights in threads and being so spiteful. Try watching Uncute gems, great acting from Sandler, he'll surprise you.


Just watched Bad Times at the El Royale. Thought it was pretty good.

I watched The Fisher King the other day, and it was pretty good. It shoehorns in some romance stuff that makes no real sense for a schizo homeless guy to be having, but aside from that it’s at least entertaining with enough Terry Gilliam to be “crazy”/“magic” but not so much that it’s incomprehensible.


Thanks, I think I'll watch it now, it's been on my list forever.
Personally, Robin Williams is one of the best actors of all time, very underrated.

Loving is a 2016 American biographical romantic drama film which tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, the plaintiffs in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia

Not normally the kind of film I would watch but it was well done for a bio-pic.
Still pretty boring though.

Yeah, I was expecting him to be tone deaf in it since I’ve mostly only seen him in comedies, but his range is actually amazing.


You should check out some of his other non-comedies like One Hour Photo, Good Will Hunting, and The Bicentennial Man.
Hell, even in many of his comedies he shows quite the range if you are looking out for it. Like in Mrs. Doubtfire, where once you get past the "lol man in dress acts silly" you see it for the story of a desperate father willing to do anything he can to be in his children lives after the family court and his ex-wife did their usual thing of throwing away the father as nothing more then a money sack with no paternal rights.

Shin Godzilla. It was an interesting take on bureaucracy, but it'd been done better with Ikiru. I find it strange that it held its punches regarding morality until military expendiency was explored -→ Suzie dropped her wallet… Maybe this is related to backlash for Fukushima I do not know. Very cool scenes embedded otherwise.


dearest wizzie, i like this meow cat eating the spaghetti, regards, secret admirer.


It is indeed very cute. But don't feed spaghetti to your cats, dear wizards, it's not suitable food for them.


Damn, after watching Fisher King, I saw One Hour Photo. Really good. Incredible performance in it. Bonus Evangelion reference too.


I have to eat pasta tomorrow. I love pasta so much. Delicious doughy noodles and zesty tomato sauce. Aromatic parmesean and big meatballs. Sprinkled with hot pepper flakes. Warming digestion and falling asleep with a big stomach. I need it. I need pasta noW!

Wiz gets bullied at work


I watched The Thing for the first time. I always thought of it as a dumb b tier kind of movie but how wrong I was.


I could forgive you for thinking that, it visually gives that off. And Carpenter’s other works are not as compelling as the thing either.


I made the same mistake. I went in with such low expectations when I finally decided to watch it that it blew me away by the time it ended


So, what did you think of the ending? Who was the Thing?


I feel kinda dumb but I didn't think one was until I read this https://clarkesworldmagazine.com/watts_01_10/


I liked it.Nauls wandering off on his own when MacReady was nearby and he should have known better stunned me, but this is par for the course in this kind of movie, I guess.

I also liked that the few remaining survivors are all willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good, though it's true they had not many options left at this point

Rolled a randomizer of my to watch list and this came up.
Jojo Rabbit

My neck hurts from the hard and constant tonal whiplash. Pretty different from anything I have seen before. Shot well, mostly written well, and the child acting was surprisingly decent.
4 out of 5


So the thing about that movie to understand is that it's a fairytale. All of guremillo del toros shit are fairytales. Second it's a warning against misusing power and also hubris. That movie spoke to me actually. I'm in a position where I could become the geek if I don't wise up and stop fucking around and take responsibility for myself


I fucking loved the new matrix I know I know u will call Reddit but I was too, actually really impressed by the meta narrative it was fucking dope how they did will smith's wife dirty with that disgusting make up, I watched it incredibly high on 100mg edible with a moderate tolerance, I was super high, I enjoyed the silly gunplay the fun of it, all of it. It was surreal as fuck. Really fun movie. I even enjoyed that machine posturing as a human the architect just being retarded and shit. It was surprisingly good to me and it's the best matrix after 1. In my opinion there are two TRUE matrix movies. One, and four.


We get a lot of wizards saying stuff like "hello Reddit" or "how did you find this place?" when posts even slightly like yours come up but this is a case where you seriously do need to go back to wherever it is you came from.


Marvel's Ching Chong and the Legend of Some Gook Shit. These hollyjew cunts can't even make a simple karate movie without fucking it up with embarrassing gook power posturing and anti-white blubbering. Could a modern writer even come up with a plot about two yellows fighting without pausing to choke on POC dick to own the chuds?
And holy shit, the irritating sidekick is the ugliest fucking chink bitch I've ever seen. It's as if the demiurge painted a completely flat mongol face then wrapped it around a bowling ball. It's unbelievable. This tortured creature belongs in a STALKER game.


>. Second it's a warning against misusing power and also hubris
I get that, cause every goddamn character in the movie kept telling the MC to not do exactly what he went and kept doing. It just felt so unsatisfying for everything to happen exactly as you expect it to. They all warn him not to do the "spook show" so he does. The circus owner shows him exactly how he breaks the geeks, and so it's exactly how it happens to him. His wife says he's going to far and she ends up dead. The crazy weirdo is indeed a crazy weirdo. The bitch therapist betrays him because she's a bitch. Everything was just so telegraphed. I would have liked it more if he becomes a geek through some other method and he gets ensnared in a surprising way. Or if his wife just refused to do the final show and he had to face the music all alone.

Cool film wiz



I didn't watch the last one.
The best john wick for me for now is the first one.


Saw most of The Lion King 2019 tonight. I expected the main lions and hyena to be voiced by negroes. OK, understandable to some extent. It takes place in Africa. However, they really casted a flamboyant homosexual for Timon? They really have to take an innocent friendship from kid's entertainment and implicate butt stuff with it, even when the setting is totally devoid of humans. Half the time Timon opened his mouth I cringed. Really laid that lisp on thick. The bits with the two male hyena I didn't care for, but that humor is probably a hit with the kids.
Political whinging aside, I thought the animation was pretty great. I think a little bit of the charm of the original's visuals was lost (the elephant graveyard looked cooler and the jungle grubs more juicy and vibrant in the drawn version to give a couple concrete examples), but that's bound to happen when going from highly stylized to realistic.

Guardians of the Night

Was in the mood for urban fantasy and already had it downloaded so gave it a shot.
Would have been a 3 out of 5 if it wasn't for the bad acting and music. The acting really dragged down what would have been a average supernatural action flick.

Now I want to watch the movie Guardians (2017) partly because it is from the same country and is a fx heavy film, and partly because it has a werebear as part of the main team. Maybe that film with be better.

This one though, this one gets a 2 out of 5 due to the bad acting and average level everything else.

I probably had this movie on my HD for 15 years or so. It's hilarious, worth the watch for some low budget unpretentious fun. By the way, the guys on the broom scene are Guile and Vega from Street Fighter.

Watched They Live tonight and loved it. Don't know how I went so long never seeing it considering they always use that one scene for memes. It's just some good old-fashioned action movie violence. The lead actor was really cool, too. This is a great example of campiness done right.


I thought it was massively overrated, it has that one iconic scene and then the rest of the movie is generic and forgettable and the ending is like a big brain fart that makes you feel bad, really similar to 2001 space odyssey in that regard


I liked plenty of scenes. The grocery store one where he's insulting that lady, the night of the police raid, when he's trying to get the other guy to wear the sunglasses, when he flips off the helicopter and then subsequently you can hear someone tell the news anchors that they look like shit. I think the point of the ending was to leave it open-ended on how all the other humans would ultimately react having been shown the situation they're in, but I think the movie isn't meant to be taken very seriously. It's a very similar tone to Evil Dead 2 for me.



I love that movie and I love John Carpenter in general.

> This is a great example of campiness done right

Check Big Trouble in Little China if you haven't seen it, also from Carpenter.


I second this.
Big trouble is a fantastic campy action film well worth watching if you liked they live.


yeah it was a great 1AM film on AMC watching alone in the basement in high school back in 2005


you can never ever trust highly rated korean or japanese movies
that's because weebs and k-pop fans represent the majority of people that would rate movies on the internet
and they'll like anything that comes from their idolized country


I am overall indifferent to Korean culture but there are quite a few very good movies to come from that country that I would recommend not because they are korean but because they are just good movies.




If you are on imdb remember that you can see the ratings by age and sex, just disregard young succubi, and maybe succubi in general and young in general.

Not sure what that movie has to do with anything being talked about.
To my recollection it is a American film.
I am confused.


shoot, as in go on


Oh, well now I feel silly.


I used to catalog the movies I watched on letterboxd, but I keep finding some series in there and it's bothering me, I think they should accept either all or none. Probably will move to Trakt, that openly accepts both movies and series. I think I originally left imdb because they have some limit on list making, but I don't really remember. Do you guys use any such tool?


I use Letterboxd, yeah. I’m easily hijacked by tracking systems so I watch way, way more movies now than before using it.

It's probably the only thing I've been excited for in a few years.


Is it that great a show? I watched breaking bad years ago and loved it, but only ever saw the first season of better call Saul. Tried watching it a couple times, but it just didn’t hook me for some reason. Perhaps I’ll give it another go.


i will look into them, thanks


yes im very excited. i hope lalo gets lots of screentime, hes the best actor ive seen in a long time. i hope mike gets none at all.

I found this one in a completely tangential manner. I was thinking about watching LOTR again and out of boredom looked up what other movies the guy that plays Frodo did. Immediately the title for this one draws my attention. I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. It's about this succubus tired of life and people's shit pretty much. Then a burglar goes into her house and steals her grandmother's silverware.

It's an ok film, nothing out of ordinary but it has a few interesting scenes in there. Frodo and the succubus who plays the main character are an interesting pair of idiots, so it's fun to watch them running around, pretending to know what they're doing. It's a very small budget film so they had to focus on the actors' performances which is something I really like.

Border (Gräns)
Pretty good, it's the kind of shit you think might happen when spacing out during showers, but actually made into a movie



I think its better than Breaking bad. Its a lot more slow. Everything in breaking bad happened just like in movies. Better call Saul is more believable, though Lalo kinda breaks that in the later seasons.


Italian here, if you liked "Investigation…", I can suggest you to delve deeper, either in the "poliziottesco" or the black comedy/neo noir fusion genres.
Check this guy's filmography for the former: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurizio_Merli
and this guy's for the latter:

Bellocchio is one of my favorites, quite abrasive and disillusioned


not him but thanks for dropping a few names. got any to recommend in particular?
speaking of italian movies, i saw dogman on tv last year and it was pretty good.


Castaway is a nice film for NEETs. Cyborg is also sweet but a bit too bizarre for my taste.


Older stuff is good but political, handle with caution
Definitely start with the "Commissario trilogy"

May I also suggest Pupi Avati: quite prolific and underrated in Italy too
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_House_with_Laughing_Windows - Horror alert
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_Present_(film) - Most unwizardish wizard main character


Watch Wilfred if you like Elijah, great show

If you liked Castaway I recommend Swiss Army Man, very similar vibe but more fun and less detached


watched this for about 20 minutes before the generic campy "humor" turned me away.


Father Stu, Mark Wahlberg. It was an okay film with a pretty decent premise. Not the best thing in the world but it was somewhat enjoyable throughout.

Shutter island, it's an incredible thriller, i recomend


Season 6 episode 7 of Better Call Saul was absolutely incredible.

I've watched it multiple times already it's that good.


tv shows having 2 simultaneous plots or interconnected stories. now it's like you have 2 main characters taking turns sharing screentime. has it always been like this?

i dont think movies suffer from it as much as tv shows


TV shows include A and B stories on purpose. Movies tend to have a central story and so things are more focused, but tv shows can have long run times and so sometimes need filler or just want to expand the story.



It was a movie was highs and lows. It started off high, peaked, then fell until coming back again. I kind of feel like they had a check list of things to do. That, or this movie inspired a bunch of movie tropes.

For an example of the checklist: Maverick does something amazing/beats a more experienced pilot, Viper, rides the high, loses the next training session, and then ends off with his co-pilot dying. From the beginning of his training, it started high, peaked, then went into a tailspin. Then it's down in the abyss for a while, he gets a little better, attends graduation, and finally achieves another high to end off the movie.

Pretty good movie too. The training scenes and final scene really got my heart pumping. I also loved the interactions between Goose and Maverick. They seemed to have a great bond. I think the romance took a backseat in the end, and I think that was great anyways.

I do wonder what Maverick's age is though. It showed a photo of him in his dad four years prior when he looked young, so I guess he's about 18. The love interest has a PhD, so I would guess she's at least mid 20s.


Top Gun did indeed inspire a bunch of movie tropes. However, I was never able to get into the movie because the back of my head was screaming, "You're spending your time watching an airforce recruitment ad!"


watched the last duel. not a fan of watching the same thing 3 different times. would prefer a supercut where jean's part is the truth, and you add in bits of the others to fluff it up. ie scenes from le gris' degnerate sex parties with their count, tax collecting, his confession to the church, etc. and for jean's wife… really who cares leave that part out. and then just add the duel to the end. that would be awesome.

Top Gun Maverick starts with Maverick at the very bottom. He's traded his best friend and his family for a regular at work friend, his romance of the previous movie is nowhere to be found, and Rooster, Goose's son, hates him. His career is looking really bad too. The admirals don't like him and have wanted to get rid of him, but couldn't because Iceman believed he was needed. He was unwanted in his career despite being highly decorated. Probably for good reason though. He does amazing things I'm sure, but pisses off his commanding officers, disobeys orders, etc. After Iceman dies, he actually does get grounded. He also loses his only ally in the military. He's been stagnating. He's a lone officer who no longer has anyone from the first movie to cling onto. He's alone. He may not be completely alone, but he's alone. All the people from the previous movie are gone or have moved on. Penny has a kid and a bar, Rooster (had) been trying to live his own life if not for Maverick keeping him in place for FOUR YEARS. That's like, college. Wow. All of his previous commanding officers, including the one who helped him in the last movie, are gone.

From the middle of the movie, it's intense aerial fight scenes. I love the fight scenes personally. I miss Maverick's enthusiasm for flying though, but I think that's just called character development. In the middle of the movie, Iceman dies and the tensions with his commanding officers intensifies. It results in him being grounded, the admiral who was in charge of the operation taking over and adjusting the mission, and Maverick doing something stupid that he should have done on the first day of training for the mission. That is, actually show that it's possible. He was training and I think he was doing a good enough job, but according to the admirals, he's shown it was an impossible mission instead of a possible mission. Ergo, he had to show everyone it WAS possible. Honestly, I think maybe it was because of the tension with his commanding officers that they wanted to get rid of him, but they didn't show that too much. The time crunch was real, but maybe not the tension felt with his commanding officers. Although it was still there, obviously.

I found the ending conclusion with his relationship with Rooster to be cliched. Maverick OBVIOUSLY chooses Rooster as his wingman, they struggle together and bond. Now I guess all the tension from their relationship is solved! Rooster doesn't think Maverick killed his father any more. Yay! Also anything PAST the actual mission was too unbelievable. I'm sure the actual mission seems really specialized, but it still seems doable by the best of the best in the military. After that, Rooster going into enemy territory, finding Maverick (who lives), saving him, crashing himself (and lives), then stealing an F14 to end up destroying two modern fighters and avoiding a third for so long does not seem believable. I even think the end is a cop out just so that they could live just in case another movie gets made.

Overall, very good action packed movie, but the romance didn't add much except for lore. It's probably not a detriment actually. I think it adds to the lore of what happens to Maverick in the end. I think he ends up at a better place at the end of the movie than the beginning. It's just that his career situation is FUBAR. He's made too many enemies in the military. He's pissed too many people off. Hopefully he just takes what he has now and retires with dignity before he screws up his life more. He's been in the military for 30 years. He can retire with 80% of his salary and fuck off. Maybe actually strengthen your relationship with Rooster more and settle down with Penny. Then he has people who care about him. He really is all alone out there now.



Did you watch it? Is it any good? The teaser does look insane, but in a haphazardly way which is not a good thing.


it's like if heironymous bosch made a stop motion film

the scenes are jaw dropping and everything was interesting. don't watch it for a plot or anything, it's more like a work of horror art


Huh, I just downloaded Yojimbo, I'm planning to watch it soon.


I just saw it. I basically like the half of the movie inside the video game but hated all the stuff IRL. Also the pop culture references were awful and should have been cut out.


I watched Donnie Darko. It was kinda dull and corny but watchable. 6/10

i didnt like it, it wasnt bad but it definitely wont surprise you and its not as good as other clint eastwood movies like the outlaw josey wales and the good the bad and the ugly. i try not to watch movies that arent the best of the best because i dont like wasting my time on shit movies and i only have so much space for torrents to seed, so if youre like me, dont waste your time with this movie.


Not poster above but found a magnet link since >>61067 couldn't find one

it's just pictures of dead people with anton lavey explaining how they died



I watched three movies in the span of four days.

1. Watership Down.

Very good movie with good orchestral music, great scenery, animation, and backgrounds, and a happy ending with a lot of good stakes. I expected more on screen deaths, but with the stakes of which rabbits could have died or gotten hurt, I think it was a good movie. I remember seeing the end of the movie where Hazel dies from old age and wondering why it happened, but now I know that with everything that's happened, what happened in the end was a good ending after all. A chapter has been closed.

2. Nightmare on Elm Street (1987)

Good movie that kept me watching without any breaks. The main character, Nancy, was a badass, while her friends, mostly Glen, were lame. I had hopes with Rod, but he got killed like a punk. Glen was a loser who kept falling asleep and almost letting his girlfriend die. Nancy's father was incompetent and lies to his daughter about Coming to check on her in 20 minutes when she was trying to bring Freddy in the real world. Also, Nancy's mother got absolutely DEMOTED to alcoholic after her one scene in the police station. I thought she worked there. What a failure of a character. I didn't like her much at all. They probably could have done better with her character and motivations, knowing she helped kill Fred Kreuger with the rest of the parents. Overall, a great movie that's not too scary, more funny. Nancy's a complete badass and freaking owned Freddy in the end. LOL

3. The Exorcist (1973)

Another great movie that I watched all the way through. I found the music used was only used in the beginning and the end of the film. Not much music was in it other than that. I like how they established the characters throughout the film. Still, when people started dying, I didn't really know who they were. I didn't really know Burke before he died. Also, there were a lot of things I apparently missed that I'm now seeing. This might be something to re-watch a few times to see everything. Finally, for this post at least, I liked a lot of the shots. A really good shot was when Father Karras goes into the room and there's a white faced succubus on the bed. The shot was from something like a 45 degree angle or something, and it was really brief.

The entire movie seems carefully crafted and worth a re-watch and more investigation. Hard recommend for this classic. I'll probably see the sequel to this one.

yeah, that didn't seem so good


Just watched "The Fly" (1958)

Was absolutely calm until the last 12 minutes where Andre, as the fly, was caught in a web by a spider and his brother didn't hear him. It could have just ended the movie there, and it would have been one of the most gruesome endings for a movie. It didn't. He ends up almost getting saved until he gets squished by a rock by the inspector. It wasn't as brutal as the first possible ending, but it was a sigh of relief, and then a kick in the nuts.

There are two sequels to the film and a 1980s remake by Cronenburg. I might watch all of those films since I liked this one.


The cronenburg one is, as you might expect, quite nasty visually. Though I think it has happy ending IIRC.

Watched Hellraiser for the first time, keeping in theme with October being a spooky month.
I have known about Hellraiser as a cultural property for a long time now, but I never actually watched any of the films, except maybe for the one time I caught a couple of minutes on the TV 15 years ago. I thought the Cenobites would be the main focus of the film, but they barely make an appearance. I'd wager they have less than 10 minutes of screen time, and they're quite peripheral to the whole movie.
Overall I found the movie pretty so-so. The pacing is weird (you can tell it's based on a book and they badly condensed it), the cinematography is bland, the acting is nothing remarkable, etc. but what really makes this movie stand out is the visual effects. The way 'Frank' resurrects from nothing into a brain and body at the beginning is fantastic. His character transforming throughout the movie and going from skeletal ghoul to man without skin was really great. The way the cenobites are designed is very original and evocative as well. They appear for a short time, but in that short time they have a very intense presence and make an impression. Shout out to whoever was head of special effects because it really carries the film.
I'll probably watch the second movie as well, but I heard that after that it goes to shit. Might read the original book as well.


I heard some things about it from my father. I'm probably gonna watch it.

Just finished Eraserhead. I wish I never watched it personally. Very slow and boring, but a great atmosphere from the beginning. The song sequence that's about 2/3rds the way in the film was pretty good, but overall, really boring and cryptic. I also felt really bad for the baby and his constant crying. It was so sad seeing his mother yell at him. Honestly, the movie made me more sad than anything else.


The Fly (1986) is one of my favorite movies. It was definitely my favorite right after watching it. I'll watch the original.

It's not a happy ending, I was rooting for the fly the whole time :(


so, a lot of good horror is contextualized with some hint of sexuality. personally, i consider sexuality an aspect of violence. how much consent is really given in the multitude of nonverbal animals? how much obvious rejections among them are then forced, like after a new alpha has murdered the previous offspring?
so, personally, i hate the sexual aspects of the first couple hellraiser movies, but i love the gore and psychological torture so much.
i dont know what a perfect horror movie looks like. it's a hard thing to contextualize once you have other people who have experienced it, or reviewers or "buffs."
i dont know, i personally really liked the ridiculous gore of hellraiser when i first watched it.

you know these are mine because i watch all my films with subtitles.

i can't watch a film without subtitles.i blame anime for this


i don't think they have any good japanese movies on netflix. i just wanna watch some ninja/samurai shit, but it's all ching chang chong kung fu/faux historical crap and it doesn't look like they have the classics of that. watched some indonesian movie called headshot and boy was that generic as hell.

I don't particularly watch a lot of movies but I get fed up with them fairly quickly. I found over the years this ends up being a positive thing because I've watched movies from pretty much every country with a movie industry going and from several different periods. Because I can't stomach the same shit over and over again I ended up watching a lot of gems of the movie industry without even knowing they were considered that. I don't keep track of movie directors, actors and whatnot. If a movie catches my attention I'll watch it, usually the title does it for me.

Going by title and feeling alone I ended up watching 6 or 7 Abbas Kiarostami's movies, the last one being The Wind Will Carry Us, which I'll talk about it here. I think I'm not a complete idiot since usually when I think a movie is really good and look for info online often happens they're indeed very praised by movie directors and critics alike. Kiarostami is one such example, I didn't even know who he was until 5 min ago while I was reading a review of The Wind Will Carry Us.

If you're a person fed up with all that Hollywood type stuff, like every person on screen being a cosmetic surgery zombie with fake hair, plastic tits, fake smile and imbecile smug and heroic pose, if you're tired of the whole over the top plots "earth at stake" or ridiculous overdone dramas and pop culture nonsense, and everything feels like one big pile of steaming, cheap and dumb, dumb fucking shit, then yeah, I think you'll like this for a change. If nothing else, it will be different.

No underwear model actors, no overdone twisting plot trash, The Wind Will Carry Us feels like a back to basics on life in general. You'll be spending a couple of hours in a small village in the mountains, following people around. That's about it really. There's a plot going but nobody will handhold and lead you by the nose, you'll have to figure it out yourself. Meanwhile you'll relearn to appreciate things like the sound of the wind or the birds, or watching an apple rolling down the street. It's poetic, not in a pretentious way, I mean it's literally poetic, the people in town know some poetry lines by heart and it's always fitting when and where they say it. It's not there to engrandize a character or something like that, many times you won't even be able to see the face of the person saying the lines. It's also the very old tale of the differences between the man of the city and the man of the fields. All in all it's really nice but it's not for everyone. I think people who are particularly exhausted of the big budget movies and their excesses will feel like this is a breath of fresh air. It wasn't for me because I watched many of this guy's movies before, but still very nice.


I just went to the wiki page for the movie and to my surprise the plot section is completely empty, so you weren't downplaying that. My interest is piqued, I assume the movie is in arabic with subtitles?


It's Persian and I watched with English subs. You can find a copy in pretty much any torrent site. I had to go to opensubtitles to get a working sub though, the one that came with the film was completely out of sync.


Let me know what you think of it btw. I don't mind if you think it's complete shit, I'm just curious to know your impressions.


I watched it. I feel like I would've like it a lot more if I "got" more of the movie. You were right in that it doesn't hold your hand in the way of plot but I also feel like I'm just an outsider looking in. A lot of the cultural references like the mourning succubi took me a long time to understand. A lot of stuff I didn't though, like the leg bone and its little journey or why his buddies came with him or who he was reporting this death to back in tehran and why. Even just the subtitles and the way they talked to each other had a lot of subtleties I could feel were there but didn't know what they meant. I could see metaphors in the plot as well like how he continually returns to the mountaintop cemetery to use his phone, or his strange quest for a bucket of milk, but again I don't really know what the significance of it was if at all. I didn't dislike what I did get, his little relationship with the kid and the poetry recitations were nice. The doctor was a cool character and I liked his dialogue. I liked the cinematography like the deliberate occlusion of character's faces, the way the basement cow milking poetry recital looks, the fields the doctor and him drive through. I just had trouble reading into anything.


Not at all, I think you got pretty much everything, I don't think everything has a specific meaning, he's showing those people to the audience. I'm happy you seem to have enjoyed it somewhat, or at least it didn't feel like a waste of time to you. His movies are like that, the plot is there but it almost feels like an accident, it's just an excuse to show the daily life of a certain place. I'm not 100% sure myself about the plot, here's what I think it's happening. The main character is a journalist and he's waiting for that lady to die so he can film a very rare funeral rite that happens in that town, that's why he keeps asking about her health. The guy he's talking to on the phone is his boss and those two buddies of his are people there to help him write and shoot the article. The reason things start to fall apart and his boss keeps calling is because the succubus just won't die and so the funeral can't happen. They get marooned there for two weeks because of it. I don't know about the bone but this director loves to show stuff rolling down, tumbling or drifting away. You have that apple scene and the bone on this movie, and a quick scene of a ball rolling on the background and a kid comes to pick it up. It's a thing for him. In his other movies there are cans rolling down the street and stuff like that. I'm not sure about the meaning of those scenes but I like the simplicity of the imagery in itself.

He has other movies like that if you liked it this one.


I'm willing to see if I some of his other stuff speaks to me more directly. Any of his that stand out directly to you?


If you want that blend of nature and social situations like The Wind Will Carry us then Through the Olive Trees might be a good one to watch next, I quite like that one. Taste of Cherry is also close in that regard.
If you want to try something that follows people more closely, then Close-up and Dah are pretty good, I like those a lot.
