Does anyone remember what this one Public Access TV guy was called? He had a ski mask and he would do comedy skits (or "a" comedy skit) about SHTF apocalypse and what to do. I think I have it saved somewhere but I don't remember the name of it. Thanks.
The Survival! show? I don't have the webm but the Cataclysm! episode is on jewtube.

What are your favorite animated films? A lot of my favorite movies of all time are animated. Let's have a thread to discuss and post some of them.
>Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure
One of Richard Williams's (May he rest in peace) best work. A fun musical with great songs and great animation. My favorite song being No Girl's Toy. Such a shame it didn't do well in the box office.
>Heavy Metal
Anthology of stories involving a glowing green orb. The animation isn't amazing but it has that cool as fuck Heavy Metal Magazine feel to it. It's pretty great and has an great soundtrack. One of my favorite songs, Veteran Of The Psychic Wars features in this film. It has hot chicks too. There's a sequel but I haven't watched it and have heard it isn't as good.
>The Transformers: The Movie
What can I say? I grew up with Transformers and despite all of the film's flaws, It's one of my favorite action films ever made. It's just pure good fun. It has also one if not the best score in any film ever. The Touch, Dare. Instruments of Destruction and The Transformers theme are my go to at the gym.

Well Atla, krteček, Pat & Mat, maybe Ninjago but onoy the first three seasons including the pilot episode, I enjoyed Phineas and Ferb when I was young. I can't think of much more that was actually good.

Off the top of my head, here's what I've got.  There is a stark contrast between pre-Adventure Time cartoons and post-Adventure Time cartoons.

Before:
- Avatar the Last Airbender (genuinely one of the best cartoon series ever made)
- My Life as a Teenage Robot (Jenny Wakeman is cute!)
- Kim Possible (this one may not quite hold up, but I remember loving it as a kid)
- Filmore (hall monitor buddy cops in middle school)
- Batman The Animated Series (genuinely one of the best cartoon series ever made)

After:
- Gravity Falls (the early stuff, anyway)
- The Amazing World of Gumball (season 1 and 2, at least; more if you really like it but don't feel compelled)
- Over the Garden Wall (about as good a dramatic cartoon miniseries as you'll get these days)

Kim Possible suffers from Kim Possible being the least interesting character in her own show. Even periphery characters like Bonnie have deeper characterization than the lead.  Kim Possible was a show carried by the strength of its villains.

I had also wanted to mention Samurai Jack, but I hadn't watched it much as a kid.  Revisiting it as an adult has been a pleasant surprise even if the action is somewhat neutered due to it being a kids show.

Quite a valid problem.  I'll have to see how I feel about it after I go back to it once I finish Samurai Jack.

Last decade was a giant ocean of putrid shit. But every now and then a good film would pop out. Let's talk about them.
Off the top of my head:

>Mad Max: Fury Road
>Hardcore Henry
>Ford v. Ferrari
>Blade Runner 2049
>Nightcrawler
>Toy Story 3
>Spaghettiman
>John Wick
I heard Birdman and the Hara-Kiri remake are good but I haven't seen them yet.

>popcorn flick fun but that's it
Do the John Wick movies claim to be anything else?  I haven't seen them myself but I'm always skeptical of this style of criticism.

>Rehash
I often see this term used to discredit movies and games, but rarely explained.  Why does a movie having a story similar to another one instantly mean it's worth discarding?
>well if they couldn't come up with a novel story then they shouldn't have made the film
Sure, but you should understand that there are plenty of character beats and comedy/action scenes in Toy Story 3 that make the film worth watching, even if the story itself is nothing new.  Considering the huge gap between 2 and 3 (1999-2010), I think it's fine for the director/producers to make a similar product to "remind" people about the characters and premise.
>but that's such a corporate way to think
It is, but any piece of art that is being sold needs to pay the piper, so to speak.  There are lots of beautiful, heartfelt films and works of art that never see success because they don't have a huge marketing budget or because they're too different from the audience's frame of reference.  Creating a large-scale animated film like Toy Story 3 requires that it is at least partially made to sell.

Self-explanatory title.

Pick 10 minutes of the movie and change the subs to your liking. (Subs here (My ten minutes are there already): https://files.catbox.moe/f7uewf.srt)
Just change the .srt extension to .txt and get writing. Download the movie as well to help you.

So tell me, anon. Was the new Mortal Kombat any good? I think I already know the answer.
There's so many new vidya films in the works. To name a few: Minecraft, MGS, another Yakuza movie, Space Invaders(how?), Megaman (by Netflix). another RE movie, Sonic 2, Borderlands, Rabbids, Just Dance, SMB by minion corp and other shit.
Any of these shitshows you are curious about?
I wonder what a Space Invaders movie will look like. It better not be pixels all over again.
A megaman film in the style of protomen would have been cool but knowing cuckflix that won't happen.
I didn't hate the Sonic movie so maybe I'll watch the new one.
So besides new releases Is there an already released videogame movie you enjoy? As much as the 1995 MK movie wastes potential is still one of my favorites.

Apparently a movie is supposed to come out for The Division but it looks like it's in something close to development hell. Hopefully it comes out and is good. The story premise is interesting and I liked the game...even though it's something I wouldn't play nowadays.
I remember my sister (film major) being excited for the Assassin's Creed movie, I warned her it was going to suck since 95% of all vidya movies are terrible but she didn't listen to me. She ended up hating it. Intuition is a funny thing,

DP was absolute garbage though, I pirated it based on a recommendation and ended up stopping it before it even reached the middle. Was hoping for a "so bad it's good" experience but nah.
>Ash and the other fags left their pokemon by themselves to have a vacation or something
Yes that was real. There were Pokemon-only shorts that played right before each main movie, see:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pokémon:_The_Movie_2000#Pikachu's_Rescue_Adventure

Anyway I remember seeing Pokemon: The Movie 2000 and really liking it, surprisingly never watched the much acclaimed first movie but I plan to. The Deoxys movie was nice too, there was also a Celebi movie that I watched but that was shit.

Has sleepy seen the new trailer for the Sopranos prequel movie? What do you think of it? I watched The Sopranos and enjoyed it so I think I'll be watching this. It's only a movie so it's not a real time investment like another tv show would be. The fact that's it's only a movie is a godsend in this day and age but it's never too late
I don't want to spoil too much right off the bat so just watch the trailer if you haven't already.

General scifi thread, I'm going to assume we're allowed to talk about shows here as well.
I finished watched Farscape and thought it was good, I liked most of the characters but it all felt a bit jumbled, like trying to do too much in too little time. I also didn't think it was made clear which side Scorpius was on. I think there was a moment somewhere towards the end where he decided what he was fighting for but the whole time I was just waiting for him to backstab everyone else again like he did the dozen times beforehand. I think overall it had too many characters that it was trying to juggle around and they didn't really have time to flesh out any of the secondary characters as much as the primary cast.
Because of all that I think I like Lexx more, even for all the flaws it has in the later seasons. It kept it weird but simple, only a few real characters you have to keep track of and the much slower pace. The universe was also more interesting but they never really explain much of anything in it. I want to know more about His Shadow and the League of 20,000 Planets and how it was created, but after the first season it's pretty much mothballed and rarely mentioned again or explored in any kind of detail. Season 3 tried too hard to be 2deep4u and season 4 was a shitshow on all fronts, at least the finale was good though.
I have an endless craving for late-90s/early-2000s scifi but it seems I'm running out. What ot

Is the Max Headroom tv show worth watching?
Started watching Red Dwarf and Andromeda. I thought Red Dwarf would be a drama but that was dispelled in the first 5 seconds. It's a bit dated and some of the britbong humor goes over my head but I'm enjoying it. Andromeda is also good but something about it just feels underwhelming, though I can't quite say what it is. I'm still hopeful so I'll see where it goes.

>Andromeda is also good but something about it just feels underwhelming, though I can't quite say what it is.
That may be due to Andromeda being "from Gene Roddenberry, the guy who made Star Trek."  It might be trying too hard to distinguish itself from Star Trek.  It's been a long time since I watched the series, however, and I only saw it on TV when I was a kid.

I think I'm figuring it out, it's playing it too safe and too generic. It's not really claiming any new ground and the few new ideas it does have its not expanding on. A lot of recycled CG shots and space battles that barely last more than a few seconds before leading to an underwhelming explosion that comes out of nowhere. The same goes for laser fights, just lots of sparks that seemingly come from nowhere. The non-serial format is also annoying, nothing really changes between episodes. The characters have potential but none of them have gone really in-depth, instead focusing on moral issues that have been discussed to death in several other shows and in much better ways. It doesn't even have any of the sex stuff that's common in scifi of the period although Andromeda herself is a 9/10. I'll keep watching it but it's starting to become a slog, and I'm only halfway through Season 1. So far my consensus is
Lexx > Farscape > Andromeda
Replies: >>513

That's a shame.  I do remember Andromeda herself being cute and there being some funny concepts due to her being a robot.
>Farscape
Ah, there's a series I've been meaning to watch for years but never gotten around to.  I loved the puppets and animatronics, especially in the larger shots like markets or city streets.  It was really nice to see a series use lots of practical effects like that instead of relying too much on CGI.

I'm pretty new to the movies genre of media, yes I watched some films but they weren't anything revolutionairy or something that changed the medium as hole, what are some films that needs to be watched to understand the strengths of this medium and it's benefits, something that can show me the value of this art-form.
It's ok if it's popular or something like that, I want to understand movies more.

At the risk of sounding incredibly pretentious, I'll recommend The Wages of Fear or Le Salaire de la Peur in the original French.  Yes, it's a French movie.  Yes, it's two and a half hours long.  Yes, it's a silver screen film full of misery and suffering.  But the film is a masterclass in suspense and tension.  If you have the time and patience to watch it, I highly recommend doing so because you won't find a film like it in Hollywood.

The film starts in a small, isolated South American town, the kind where people go to hide out or do illegal things.  People there have enough money to get into town, but they never have enough money to leave because there's nothing to do except drink and smoke.  However, there is an oil field several hours' drive away in the countryside, and there's an industrial accident there: one of the shafts erupts into a giant fire and there isn't enough water to put it out.

The only way to extinguish a fire of that size is to deprive it of oxygen, which can only be done with a giant explosion.  In this case, several tonnes of nitroglycerine transported over winding mountain roads in giant trucks.  The only people crazy enough to take on such a job are four European men from the village, because if they can complete this task then they'll be paid enough to leave.

I won't lie, it's kind of a draining and miserable movie, but I think it's worth watching if the premise sounds interesting.  There are

whedon's was barely fucking coherent comparatively, this is way too long for some feature blockbuster film, but the universe was such a fucking mess of way too much shit being done way too quickly already
joss's best days were well behind him when he tried to do that

hollywood's changing regardless, theaters are dead, don't think that's ever going to get truly revived
these things just work better storywise as series rather than films anyway
well watching this led to realizing I didn't watch Aquaman, which was alright but relied way too heavily on how much one likes Jason Momoa
I don't know a hell of a lot about Aquaman but I don't remember him being near invincible like that
also fuck Amber Heard
which led to me remembering I didn't watch that last Spider Man, which I ended up noping out of after like 10 minutes, that 20+ somethings trying to pull off teen dialogue, man
noped out of Dark Phoenix for the same reason, Sansa and Jewclops trying to be romantic was some truly painful shit
