On the subject of vampires I found the comic version of Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires, a Hammer Horror kung fu movie starring Peter Cushing bus tragically not also starring Christopher Lee.
I've gone back and forth about posting this since it's spoilery and I was hoping we'd watch it at some point but in the end it's too good not to post.
So spoilers ahead. Don't click if you care about such things.

I've re-watched Jingle All the Way recently. It was pretty fun for what it was. It's a favorite of mine.

>Frosty the Snowman (1969)
Was definitely a classic growing up that I hope we get to watch next year on Christmas.

>Mon oncle Antoine (1971)
A Quebecois film following an orphaned boy and his life in a small town. His uncle is the caretaker of the town as well as owns a little corner store. Takes place around Christmas eve. It's atmospheric, contains adultery, and is quite depressing, but I like it.

I watched it for the first time this year. I was amazed that I actually sat through the whole thing and actually chuckled a few times.
Fuck you loser, it's not even halloween yet, there's TONS of shit to watch for halloween.

What have you watched this month?

I've been making a concerted effort to watch horror films I hadn't seen yet this month. It's gotten busy lately so I had to slow down my effort, but I watched:
>The Mummy (Hammer)
6.5/10, which is unfortunately a pretty favorable score for a non Brendan Fraser Mummy movie. Such a cool type of monster that gets no real respect most of the time.
>The Howling
7/10. Pretty cool werewolf movie that was just a little too long in the tooth.
>Ginger Snaps
6/10 Too edgy for me at first, but ended up being somewhat fun
5/10 - The effects were pretty good and the idea of an alien hivemind falling in love with the main female character was novel, but I couldn't help but alternate between feeling disgusted by the movie (a lot of that was intentional on the filmmaker's part) and bored. It had some signs of promise, but didn't sit right with me.
>The Thing from Another World (1951)
7/10. Better than it gets credit for, but not nearly as good as John Carpenter's remake. It was nice to see a movie where there wasn't diversity shoehorned in, the protagonists who did things were men (one woman was there as a secretary mostly to provide surprisingly sexually charged dialogue with the male lead). It was a really solid for a Sci-fi horror movie. The Thing itself was not particularly interesting, mostly just a sh

>....but I can't quite square the symbolism with the scene involving the man I take to be a Hitler stand-in. 
It's "White people are at it again and they are worse than Hitler this time". During the Cold War you had a lot of youth groups who were making up their own minds, rejecting both the post WW2 establishment and the mainstream youth movements like Hippies etc. These youth groups only had access to the history told to them in the books of their local library and what movies were telling them. So they understood that the mainstream is full of shit, but they never could put their fingers on it because they only had access to bluepilled media about the past. This created the establishment of what the mainstream media and leftist youth groups were calling "Neo Nazis", but a part of this "movement" was disowning Hitler either for failing to win WW2 or because they believed the stories told to them from Allied history books. This in return caused the fear in certain ((( (((people))) ))) that whites wouldn't stop being succesful regardless of what horror stories you tell them about their ancestors. At the same time this could be seen as Schadenfreude about them being able to manipulate white people in disowning their own defender.

If you look up the movie, you see the screenplay was written by a certain David Himmelstein and that the Hitler Stand

I finally saw Scars of Dracula. That's the last of the original series of Hammer Dracula films. There are 3 more but they're in a different continuity, with the next two features Dracula in the "modern" era. Modern being the Swinging 70s. They're not very good on their own but they do have both Lee and Cushing so that's worth the price of admission. And then there's final Hammer Dracula which lacks Lee due to him being tired of playing Dracula 7 damn times already. Despite that it's still better than the 70's era ones.

Any way back to Scars. It's not terrible but it really doesn't add anything to the formula of the previous 3 films (the 4 basically comprise a Dracula resurrection arc). The quality miniature model and the vampire bats seem to indicate that that Hammer didn't allocate as much of a budget to this one as previous movies in the series. There is a really nice matte painting of the cliff that gets reused several times.

The inside of Dracula's castle looks gorgeous. It would be worth slaying Dracula just to claim the place as living quarters.

for about ten or so minutes in the first episode i thought they had pozzed it to hell and back, until i realized i'm just really bad at seeing connections between characters. also not just pure nostalgia bait. should be good going forward.

What do you think of the Star Wars series ?
For me I think it's overrated and blown out too much, it doesn't deserve it's high status or this amount of attention, there are lots I mean lot of other media that does things better then Star Wars.
I could give out examples but most of them are anime so wew.
Although I may be wrong because I never watched a Star Wars movie.

ANH is good and has aged very well. Open and shut, no cliffhangers, you can just watch it right there and be done with it. Empire is good but I don't think it's as great as everyone says it is. It's fun and enjoyable but there's nothing about it that jumps out at me and says "this is the best movie ever made". RotJ is a hippie-pandering cash grab made to sell toys with bad green screen technology that has aged like garbage and an anticlimactic ending. George also couldn't stop himself from changing the ending after the prequel trilogy.
TPM has podracing and Darth Maul which sounds cool until you realize those are the only things it has going for it. Every time I watch it I think it will be better than it actually is. AotC is a clusterfuck of bad early CGI and Anakin being a sperg. RotS is the greatest of the entire series, it brings everything together and perfectly sets the stage for the OT. It is what Star Wars should be.
TFA is just ANH but bigger, if you're following a trail you're not a trailblazer. TLJ is the equivalent of a monkey throwing shit at the wall and calling it art. TRoS is the greatest comedy of 2019.

I grew up watching the Star Wars series, and it's good for what it is and was always supposed to be: a fairy tale in space made by the directorial equivalent of Anon (i.e., a counter-cultural autistic weeb with eclectic interests). With regards to the movies themselves, the OT is over-rated, the PT is over-hated, and the ST should've never been created.
Agreed on everything though I prefer ANH over RotS.
I don't know how I feel about TFA and Rogue One since it's been near a decade since I watched both, don't remember much about them and really don't feel like watching them again.
>TFA is just ANH but bigger
No it isn't, it wants to be ANH and failing at every step.
Replies: >>1804
He's probably talking how George's idea for RotJ involved having a low tech civilization defeating a high tech one. Which really isn't hippy pandering any more than having a movie where a mob of cavemen play tucker's kobolds with a bunch of modern day Army Rangers or something like that.

Has David Lynch ever made a good movie? It sure doesnt seem like it. It just seems to be pretentious bullshit that never tells an actual story. I watched mullholland drive but im guessing the rest of his films are the same. (excluding elephant man) Elephant man wasnt pseudish. It was a normal movie. The impressions i've seen of his other movies reek of the mulholland drive pseud shit.

>Mullholland Drive
>Pretentious bullshit that never tells an actual story
He does tell a story in Mullholland Drive, as well as in his other movies. But similar to Stanley Kubrick, you have a surface narrative and a deeper level. For example, The Shining on the surface level is about a man who kills his family in spoopy ghost skellington hotel, but the film also discusses the killing of native americans, as well as a more deep understanding that Jack is sexually abusing his son.
However, Lynch is a lot more convoluted in his storytelling where it just seems like he's jumping all over the place in tone and in story. So while you could enjoy The Shining without "getting" it, I find Lynch's films are for the guy who's into art movies or weird films. The only exception, for me, was Twin Peaks. It has a deeper story, but it's not insufferable to watch if you don't want to decipher clues.
>>1761 (OP) 
Dune is great.
Replies: >>1783
I like Dune too, but Lynch took his name off that film for a reason. It's not really a Lynch film, it's a studio picture that Lynch worked on a bit.

Any popular films or any films overall that have a generally postive reception.
I guess i'll start.
I did not like the godfather movies. I liked the first half of the first movie but the rest bored the crap out of me. I actually had to force myself to stay awake and take multiple breaks because i kept almost falling asleep.
I did not like teriminator 1 and 2. I thought it was boring. I liked Alien but i did not like Aliens. I didnt like Aliens because it trivialized the alien itself. It turned it from a horror movie to some stupid machine gun killing alien movie.
I felt the same way about The Godfather, after the diner shootout and when he flees to Italy it all became a blur and I completely lost track of what was happening.
I liked Terminator but not T2. Felt like it was trying to do too much with the first movie which, at the time, was little more than an action movie with primitive CGI. I actually think RotM is the best of the original "trilogy" even if it's no longer canon (fuck nu-Terminator though)
Alien is a great movie and I thought Aliens followed it up pretty well. However Alien 3 throwing Aliens into the trash within the first five minutes is a perfect example of how NOT to write a sequel.

Not an unpopular opinion here but my sister keeps trying to get me to watch all the new Marvel movies. After No Way Home (which I liked very much) I'm done with the MCU, they have used up or killed off all the characters anyone cares about and I am not going to watch a dozen other movies just to know what's happening in the new one. The last one I saw was the newest Doctor Strange which was incredibly disappointing, and that was also the last time I saw a movie in theaters. My own mother even wanted to see GotG 3 with me, even though she cares even less about the MCU than I do. Hearing my sister drone on and on about how good the new Spiderverse is is starting to annoy me, I've told her over and over again that I don't care about it anymore.
