What films did you watch in school? We watched picrel
Who would've thought the gnahzees did a better job at High School comedy in 1944 than modern day anime/manga writers?
We saw mostly religious films like Moses and safe cartoons in early school. A later film teacher was a big Kubrick/Gilliam nerd. I recall watching a few for English class, like Cool Hand Luke, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Guns of Navarone, more variety than film class. I just realized that. The deal with film class though is there were weeks devoted to a single film sometimes.
Watched Romeo and Juliet (1968) in 9th grade english class after we read through the play. Probably most people are familiar with this version because we get a bit of tit and ass from the actress and actor, which of course everyone whistled about in class. Otherwise, would have preferred one of Shakespeare's comedies personally.
We watched Taxi (1998) and Les Boys (1997) in one french class, but I can't remember fuck all from either of them.
In my last year of high school, we watched The Matrix to discuss Jesus imagery. Otherwise, I took a documentary class later on in school and we watched When We Were Kings, a documentary about the Foreman/Ali match in Africa. I remember enjoying it, though the title certainly doesn't inspire confidence anymore.
>To Kill A Mockingbird
>Roman movie where they travel to the end of the world/northern united kingdom to recover an eagle banner lost in battle
there were definitely a lot more but I can only remember those for now
found it, it was The Eagle
Pitch your idea for a movie in this thread, no matter how outlandish/insane/stupid it may be. This is a judgement free zone :^)
So, I decided to get into Star Trek. I'm starting with TOS, then TNG and DS9. Are the original movies and the animated series any good? What should I avoid?
>However it had to have been found and watched in the first place, and in that vein I would believe the show was simply unique.
More unique at the time... TNG was my trek, it was wild how it seemed like anything could happen, episodes could be completely different from one another, focus on different characters. There were certain cliches that were repeated, but no real formula, and a great cast.
Looking back from today's perspective, after it's been copied so much, it's still unique in some of the things it *didn't* do: it had an episodic format without a lot of drawn-out plots, less soap opera aspects, less "self awareness" and winking at the audience. I can't imagine exactly how it plays for somebody coming to it after watching revived Doctor Who or Stargate or whatever.
Animated series is creative because it uses scripts recycled from TOS, but it's of notoriously poor quality. I would say that if you're enthusiastic about it, then give it a go. As for the movies, it's a pretty mixed bag. The Motion Picture's pacing is fucked because it's a television script drawn out over two hours. It's a bad movie, but it has a nice aesthetic. I would rank them Wrath of Khan > The Voyage Home > Undiscovered Country > 2009 > Search for Spock > The Motion Picture > You probably shouldn't bother with anything after here > First Contact > Beyond > Generations > Don't even bother thinking about the next ones > Into Darkness > The Final Frontier > Nemesis. I don't think I've seen Insurrection, but assume it's also shit.
I really don't think a connoisseur has to be beholden to watching every single episode of TOS or even TNG. DS9 is a mixed bag because it has a pretty weak beginning, a terrible ending, but some really strong middle to later seasons. The cast isn't as memorable, but it's way more consistently good in the middle than any of the other series. I almost would recommend Enterprise because Porthos and I wanna fuck T'Pol, but it's pretty bad. Don't watch Voyager and all that CBS All Access garbage. I'd sooner watch Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict than that shit again.
I remember the cat lady being pretty hot in the animated series. How much of the show features her compared to the main crew?
M'Ress was introduced to replace Uhura because all the budget went into the voice cast and they thought they could get away with cutting out Nichols, but after the cast disagreed and she was brought back in later episodes. I haven't watched that must of TAS to tell you if she was completely written out, but she has some screen time.
>deep space 9
stick with the ToS and TnG movies. im not really a fan of anything after TnG, and the really new stuff is complete SJW agenda driven garbage
General David Lynch thread as well, but mostly Twin Peaks.
Halfway through Season 2, this is alright. The series feels like the most Lynch could get away with on network television. Enough weird shit going on to keep me engaged but far too much soap drama for my liking, there's 4 concurrent love triangles right now still counting Leo since he'll probably wake up.
Big pros are Dale Cooper, the One Armed Man and the visions Madeleine was getting a the start of the season. I assume there's more of the Giant and Black Lodge coming later in the season. Log Lady is neat, as is trying to figure out what the fuck Rosenfield's problem is. Hoping the Triad subplot goes somewhere soon.
Cons: Soap drama as mentioned. Actors for James, Bobby and Josie are a bit shite. Pace is slow, a great deal happened in the first and last episodes of season 1 with maybe another 4 episodes of that worth in the rest of the season. I assume network serials were paced like that at the time. Audrey is a strange and annoying character. Not out of place, but I don't care for here character I mean, she looks great in those skirts or here subplots.
I expected more backward talking midgets and premonitions from coffee cups than I've been getting. Such is what it had to be I suppose, but still wonder what the original script would have been like.
General thread questions
>How Lynch is Twin Peaks? Give free rein, what do
Some advice to take or leave
Watch Fire Walk with Me (duh perhaps) before s3, but don't expect a movie
comes off more like a prequel built from outtakes
wish MacLachlan wasn't so wary of typecasting and did whatever Lynch's original idea was
and don't expect anything at all from s3
Hey, I remember this show...maybe I should finish it some time. I remember going into this knowing nothing about it thinking that the detective guy was going to be the only normal one in the bunch, but it turned out that he was one of those eccentric detectives, or at least a bit odd. The town had it's fair share of relative strangeness but it was mostly a bunch of love triangles. I think I dropped it after or before I finished the first season. I can't into drama I guess. I didn't think it was bad and I'm not a huge critic but I found myself questioning the time I was spending watching it. The comfy setting also makes me uncomfy since it makes me yearn to be in a place like that but that might just be me.
Season 2 is the low point, save for a few episodes here and there. Season 3 is much better. You just have to slog through S2 to get to it.
I started it a while ago, but I have yet to finish it. I really like that feeling of discomfort that Lynch will put into his work. That scene with Leland bawling as he dances to swing music comes to mind. His use of time in that regard is also excellent. Think back to the scene where Cooper is shot in his hotel room. FOR FUCKS SAKE GO GET HELP YOU STUPID OLD MAN.
I recently re-watched season one and two of Twin Peaks. This is my second complete re-watching of the series, though I have re-watched season one and some of season two prior to this. I gotta say, season one and up until the reveal in season two are both great. The middle of season two when Lynch left really drove me up the wall. It became pretty insufferable and, frankly, I wish the season had been shorter. Audrey losing her virginity to some random fuckboy is something I can't even believe they did. Annie really feels very void in her personality, and if you tell me it's because she was in a convent and suffers from psychological distress, it just doesn't work for me. I've started season three, but it was so dark and depressing, I couldn't get into it (even though that may be the point). I will try to take another gander in the future, but I'm pretty sure I'll be running that shit at 3x the speed.
>How Lynch is Twin Peaks? Give free rein, what do you think he would have changed?
Number one is that they wouldn't have revealed the superficial killer to be Leland. As the international pilot shows, it wasn't necessarily supposed to go that route. Number two, Lynch was a lot more explicit in his themes than he normally is, especially when the show was re-released with the log lady giving you a little intro at the beginning of each episode. If executives hadn't been breathing down hi

The B series has some good tits, but the women's faces really don't do it for me.
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.
I made this thread to not derail the /v/ thread
I remember a nuStar wars comic were they draw Luke like a girl. It was fucking horrible.
The OT is good. Overrated as fuck, no disagreement there, but they're competent movies that tell a decent story. I'm not a sci-fi man myself, but I understand why people like them.
The prequels reek of George being up his own ass and no one having the balls to tell him he smells like shit and anything touched by the mouse is just a shitty cash grab without half the thought put into them that even the prequels had.
I assume he meant "if you kill your enemies they win" bs outside of the OT and EU. Either that or he's retarded.
Top right and bottom left I would. Top left, I'd consider. Probably not bottom right. Weird as fuck considering they're all the same "girl"
the OT is kind of the grandfather of the Abrams mix tape mystery box kind of shit, just way more competently executed comparatively
PT, George's head just seemed to be way too far up his own ass and distracted with everything but the actual movies and how good they were, still far better than the yidsney shit
the ST exists here so that some other reality could get the actually good version made possible by the universe where Disney died with Walt and George's early 1980's divorce never happened, so I can just ignore its existence
you can't really judge fans of the universe fairly though by the films alone, because especially in the case of people who grew up with this series over like 40 years, a fuck ton of novels and comics and other shit exist from before the yidsney buyout that George didn't really care about so interfered in little, written by a large group of actually fair to great writers (for the franchise tier genre) who fixed George's plot mistakes as best they could and managed to breathe a fuck ton of life and depth to the universe and the story
the EU and cartoons (with all their flaws) is what actually made this all so great and sustained this franchise all this time, took advantage of the potential of the thematics and galaxy in a way the execution of the films never quite totally lived up to
The prequels are painful to watch but I love the world building they have which made some great vidya and cartoons possible.
I would like to see a remake of episode 1(not by yidsney of course). Concise and maybe animated.
Just imagine a podracing scene animated like Redline.
I liked the original trilogy, but the EU, especially the Old Republic, is better for the franchise as a setting. Lucas's attempt at an official EU work, the prequel trilogy, was miserable but provided a basis for better official EU works. Now that the EU has been rendered non-canon, except for when it's convenient, there's no reason to care about the series except as something to fondly remember and use as a gateway for others into better science fiction. However, that's basically impossible since almost everyone in the developed world knows, watched, or played something from the franchise.
>They found a way to continue to milk toy story after ending it with 4
Why is the trailer so "cinematic"? It feels more aimed to adults than kids.
The director is Angus MacLane which is known for animating a bunch of pixar films and co-directing Finding Dory. I haven't watched that though so I don't know if it's good or not.
It reminds me as well that buzz lightyear of star command exist but I haven't watched that either.
I never understood the hype Toy Story has for some people. It was just one of many okeyish kid movies during a time when we had lots of them. There was a lot of wank about it being an animated movies back then, but at that time I had seen better being done in video games.
my review of all recent pixar movie:
Toy Story 3: nostalgia bait
Cars 2: Why?
Monsters University: interesting concept but totally unmemorable and boring
Inside Out: stupid
The Good Dinosaur: no one even watched this one
Finding Dory: has some nice visuals but otherwise stupid
Cars 3: maliciously anti-white and anti-male
Coco: Viva la raza
Incredibles 2: maliciously anti-male
Toy Story 4: maliciously anti-white and anti-male
Onward: fun but contrived little D&D-inspired comedy story
Soul: George Floyd
Luca: movie about male wop mermaids, didn't watch
saw the new trailer yesterday, seems to be big battle against an army of giant Zerg robots. the whole time i was just thinking "no Mira no watch"
reminder that they fired tim allen from voicing buzz lightyear every again because he said he didn't hate trump
It looks like that because it is, in some amount, aimed at adults. Now that many parents are basically children, the model is to cast a net of nostalgia so that they'll come and bring their children, who will hopefully become attached to the franchise. If they were trying to make something closer to the established canon that would attract children on its own, a reboot of the Buzz Lightyear cartoon would have worked far better. This is meant to work in tandem with the other model which works off the same principle and to the same end but uses "live action" remakes because the average person doesn't understand what good animation is.
There was one other white, but it was fat.
I've been looking left and right for good Carfellas and I'm in the Band torrents for weeks now.
There's a lot of awful 2009 disney sticoms I would like to watch but I can't find most of them.
I'm also looking for Shrek 2 dubbed in japanese.
I'm trying to find the old release of The Evil Dead. The Blu-Ray release and much of the DVD releases have altered the goofs and it looks awful: https://www.bookofthedead.ws/website/the_evil_dead_dvd.html
i think there was some anon here who said he was part of a PT, maybe you could ask him if he shows up
Friendly reminder that a lot of obscure shit can be found on the Internet Archive... For example here's an archive of 396 VHS rips: archive.org/details/video_archive_553-cd-207
>Shrek 2 dubbed in japanese
Ask the webmaster here: japanencodings.blogspot.com
Maybe look for someone who owns the VHS version and ask him (privately) for a rip? Unironically reddit is full of users who have a copy:
If you explain why you're after the VHS version I'm sure they will understand and be happy to oblige.
Also you can make a thread on r/DHExchange RIP r/riprequests asking for a VHS rip.
Loooking for korean movie where there s a man playing guitar but cant remember chord and somehow becomes old and gets into radioshow

Post your VHSs and criticize your fellow anons
Sorry to reply so late. I had misplaced the machine I access this site through.
It is in fact subtitled. I looked them up and they aren't too expensive to get in USA ebay.
>at 2% you're saying a VHS can only be watched 50 times until it is pure static
I think he meant something more like "The first time it's 98% in quality, then it's 96.04%," etc. This is an exponential decay function. This means that at 50 watches it'd be at about 36% quality (not 0), at 100 watches it's at around 13%. I'm not exactly sure when "unwatchable" would hit but I think it's safe to say it's probably hit by the time we hit 228 watches with less than 1 quality. The function doesn't describe other kinds of damage but technically speaking you could have an infinitesimally small amount of "quality" left no matter what. Though, I suppose if the "quality" got so low that it didn't even represent enough data to properly display one singular pixel then you could just "round" and say the tape was fucked and nothing of the original film remained.
I'm no VHS expert but I reckon the decay is from destructive reading so there's nothing to do except heed Mr. 672.
Very happy about this one, didn't think they'd release it on VHS or really anything other than the internet. As far as I understand from reading about it, it's some band that went on a random NYC subway station and played a set amps & all. It could be the train, I'm not sure. Haven't read about it in a while, grabbed it as soon as I saw it up having remembered the name. Just got it, gonna watch tonight. Music I doubt anyone here would like but that doesn't really matter.
So how was it anon?
>VHS is a media format for storing movies
I don't understand, how did you guys watch TV before electricity was invented?
Just watched the first two episodes of this thing.
Why do all cartoon characters for children have to be loud and annoying now?
Did this people even bother watching a 20s cartoon? The whole point is that old cartoons barely spoke coherent english and relied on body language to tell the story.
These daffy cunts never shut the fuck up. Even Popeye and Bugs Bunny didn't talk as much and as loudly as them.
The animations is nice and the backgrounds great but the plot is the most generic and bland shit. They never take advantage of being based on old animation.
