Merry Christmas!
RULES HERE >>1
Check for weekly movie nights >>6


I'd thought I'd ask this new board for movie recs since coincidentally I've found myself binging a few from this list i had saved. So far its pretty good, I'm about halfway done. Do you guys have any other movies you'd consider similar to those on this list?

The movie is criticism and mockery of all the edge-lords who think the Germans deserved everything that happened in WW2. It's not pozz, but more of a mockery of Jews and how they think that they're badasses even though they never contributed to the actual fighting outside of declaring war.

Either that or the movie has no self-awareness. I would lean to the latter because I didn't catch any of the mockery you're talking about. It is a well made movie but It can only be enjoyed If you know nothing about WWII other than "Ivol nadzees".

You can tell what its message is portraying when you see some of the more human Nazis are innocently killed despite not deserving it. The message of the movie is still that Nazi bad, but it also shits on the kikes who celebrate murdering Innocent Germans who are good-willed and care about the well-being of their fellow comrades. The people who think that movie is just anti-Nazi either just don't understand the themes or chose to purposely misunderstsnd its meanings just to larp about how they easily defeated nazism despite being getting btfod numerous times. Films don't always show an action or conflict in the good vs/or bad guy narrative.

Although I won't discount the possibility that the intention was to lampoon the fervor with which the normalfag lusts for violence against people who have sinned against their lords I wonder if such a message even matters considering the reception of the film by said normalfags and the way that the story is told. I don't think anyone here thinks the film is "just anti-Nazi," I was merely saying that in it the Jew once more gratuitously and vicariously gets revenge on bad goys. Surely other things happen in it, although I suppose I shouldn't be so sure. A film which was two hours of nothing but Allied Powers murdering Germans would be boring, but who can say if it wouldn't go over well with normalfags? In any case I don't appreciate the implication that I was being dishonest.

I just watched Blade Runner 2049 yesterday. It was pretty fucking good.
I've also been watching Ken Burns The Vietnam War and will start to watch Initial D later.

Finished The Hill (1965) starring Sean Connery. It is about an officer (Sean himself) who is arrested for attacking his superior and taken to a prison in northern Africa. Said prison is basically a holding place for all of her majesty's soldiers who tried fleeing, stealing, or anything else of that nature. Some of the officers and men in charge run an extremely disciplined prison that ultimately leads to big issues later in the movie.

As for what I thought about it, I will say I very much recommend it. The movie is set in WW2, but the viewer is only aware of within the prison. This is a pretty nice change from every movie being set in the time period having to lecture on the sides involved. Instead it focuses only on the Brits and the men who are imprisoned there. I came into this movie to see another Sean Connery film, but was just as impressed with Harry Andrews and Ian Hendry who help ratchet up the tension. The start of the film sets the stage, but you really start to feel the tension the longer the movie goes on. As both sides of the conflict seem to start losing it and lashing out.

I go through short binges now followed by long periods of watching nothing
last one included Hostiles, which was great until the plot started to fall apart culminating in that increasingly terrible ending
Sisters Brothers, which was very well done all around and not the kind of quasi-McFarlane tier comedy satire I expected just from Dr Steve Brule's casting
also grabbed the True Grit remake and Ballad of Lefty Brown, yet to watch those though

>Kagemusha

>Is Blade Runner as good as people say it is? 
Yes
>I wish (((kikewood))) would stop milking these franchises.
Well your wish will probably never be granted until production studios in HollyJew die from financial issues due to the creative bankruptcy that runs rampant there due to only having dumbass kikes who only know how to steal credit and plagiarize ideas from everyone else.

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.

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.

>>84
I assume he meant "if you kill your enemies they win" bs outside of the OT and EU. Either that or he's retarded.

>>179
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

Don't skip anything without at least trying it to see if you like it. Everyone has their own idea of what's good and what isn't and will tell you different things and the only way to know for certain is to watch it yourself. There's also fun to be had from joking and shitposting about some of the shitty stuff, and you can't do that if you didn't watch it.

There are many reasons, but a major one is the overall atmosphere. The shows have a very comfy feel about them, mostly stemming from the slow pace which also allowed the plots to be well developed. It's not the kind of show where people are constantly running around and shouting at each other, it's much more thoughtful.
There are also a lot of interesting ideas and stories, and a lot of it is genuinely very well written and acted.

>>89
>Picard sucks
You mean the show and not the character, right?
>>89
>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.

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.

my family and I always watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas
I remember seeing Magic Gift of the Snowman on television once when I was a kid and wondering what it was for years afterwards. Rewatching it after an anon helped me locate it made me appreciate it better. It's a nice little story about learning to find your inner will and strength. Definite recommend.

George C. Scott's A Christmas Carol is an awesome watch every year. Watching people get told off so eloquently is always a laugh.
It's a Wonderful Life is a movie that I ended up really liking as I got older. It's too long for a casual watch though.
I also watch the star wars holiday special with some friends every year. This'll be the 11th viewing and I bought some 40 year old chocolate bars from the special's commercials to celebrate. Tis the season to stream myself eating expired candy after all.

Because I'm filthy weeb, I mostly watch anime and that shit but I decided to watch some japanese movies.
>Shin Godzilla
This was my first Godzilla movies and it's pretty good, the visual were great and the soundtrack is amazing, the story is meh but they are many great scenes out there, I say that it's worth a watch I'll maybe check out other Godzilla films.
>Lesson Of Evil
Pretty brutal I like it, they really went all out on this film even angering some journos, it's not one of most well made movies out there but it was fun watch.

Interesting to note, while kamikazes weren't that effective, they had better odds than conventionally striking a ship. something about math, how if X amount of planes get shot down by AA and most probably killed, might as well use those planes and pilots as kamikazes. It wasnt just suicidal zeal, but a numbers game. You cant trust normalcattle for anything. If it isnt spoonfed to them as X good and Y bad their brains break

What are some old and classic movies that are worth watching ?
Few weeks ago I watched Fahrenheit 451the orignal one, I heard that the remake or whatever was shit just like every media and it was a great watch, it gave books for me a new meaning there importance in our life, and the details that make the world much more believeble are great for example :
There was scene where the police was looking into files of criminals, and saw that files didn't have any words on them they were just pictures of the criminals or how when Montag sits in his bed reading only comics at the begining of the movie.
These little details are great to discover.
This is a movie that any fan of films should totally watch and enjoyed every minute of it.

It's definitely not a masterpiece, but I was surprised to see it received staggeringly poor reviews. Why did people not like this film? It certainly wasn't worse than [current year] dogshit.
