Pitch your idea for a movie in this thread, no matter how outlandish/insane/stupid it may be. This is a judgement free zone :^)

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.

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.
>>309 (OP) 
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

>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?
Brave: ZZZ
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
>>684 (OP) 
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.

>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.

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.

It's winter and soon to be Christmas. Have you been watching any movies or specials related to this holiday? Post and talk about your favorites here.
I've re-watched Jingle All the Way recently. It was pretty fun for what it was. It's a favorite of mine.

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.
>Die Hard

>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.

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

what makes good, top grossing movies that sells to millions of people?
1. People who want to actually see movies and have the budget to buy movies.
2. The opportunity of having very little competition. Hollywood only grew so big, because all other movie producing countries were in ruins thanks to WW2.
3. A spectacle that dosn't alienate the people. People want to see something interesting that allows them to escape their lives for a moment. When you start to insult them, they will only remember you as a time waster and not recommend you. 
4. Quality of production. The best story is nothing if you don't have the skill, effects and actors to pull it off and the best actors, skills and effects are worthless if your story is shit.
