The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) is better than the book because Albert is Edmond's biological son.

As far as movies that are better than the book you can include The Swarm. 
Not because the movie is good but because the book is genuinely pants on head retarded. Also I suppose because the movie stars Michael Caine and he's one of those actors that just makes whatever he's in better in spite of all other factors.

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.

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.

Heavy Metal is a great film for both its art and music. Veteran sounds like it was made entirely for the movie, and it's one of my top 10 albums.
With that being said, Heavy Metal 2000 is truly garbage. Shitty recycled plot, boring characters, and an ear-splitting soundtrack because metal by that time had become nu-metal, screaming, and growling, only made worse by being used in all the wrong places at the wrong times. For fuck's sake, the name of the fucking villain is Tyler. At least Julie was pretty hot but that's all we got out of it, that and the PC game which I need to finish playing.

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?

I really love the look of the sets and especially the uniforms from the first Star Trek movie. That was my first introduction to Star Trek. I's a criminal shame this look only lasted for a single movie and has never been brought back again.

>>87 (OP) 
I would suggest watching the original version of TOS instead of the "enhanced" version, just to get the original experience.
It's basically a pulp scifi setting with a bit more thoughtfulness that you got out of Buck Rodgers or Flash Gordon and filmed in TECHNICOLOR.
>I don't think I've seen Insurrection, but assume it's also shit. 
It's basically just an episode of TNG extended to movie length and with better production values. It's got a season 2 TBG sort of feel to the script too.
One highlight is you get to see Riker fly the Enterprise with a joystick.
Don't watch any TNG movies or anything by JJ Abrams/Kurztman
Star Trek is pretty much Communism: The Series with enough shiny shit put on top to distract you from that so you unconsciously absorb the propaganda. Gene Roddenberry is a jew who spent most of his career doing absurd amounts of cocaine and probably also adrenachrome. Leonard Nimoy is also a jew and has gone on record saying the Vulcan salute is a bastardized version of some jewish secret handshake. Nearly all of the things about Star Trek that are good (like just about all of Wrath of Khan's plot) were done over Gene Roddenberry's objections. Many of the things about Star Trek that suck (communism, giving Wil Wheaton a career, basically all of TNG's first season in fact) were done because Roddenberry made it part of his contract.

Despite this, it's still a good show for brainless entertainment and sheer low-budget ham.

>Deep Space 9 sucks dick
Someone recommended Deep Space 9 and said it was maybe the best of the Star Trek series. I couldn't even get through the first episode it was so bad. I'm not a Star Trek fan by any stretch of the word, but it really surprised me that it was that terrible.

I've also seen episodes of Enterprise because my parents loved putting that shit on (pretty sure they still do). It's shit as well and tries being super edgy and dark. Do not recommend.

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.

I'm trying to get into Hammer films. Too bad all the blu-ray versions seem to be screwed up in some way. Considering tracking down VHS'.

i really enjoyed all quiet in the western front (1930), also there was this old movie about a girl that becomes obsessed with this writer that is very old (it's not misery) that gets jealous of even the protag's brother and ends up kiling him and even the baby they have, can't remember how it was called.
I just finished the book, and yeah you're right there are many thinks that the movie left out and it changed alot of things, at first I liked the movie but now it looks like a botched adaptation of a great movie. I kinda want to watch the new one too see how much they fucked it up too

Ignoring the Marvel obsession and fanbase, are they really bad movies on their own? I've seen most of them (except Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and Eternals because I've mostly stopped caring) and there are only really two of them that I would consider "not good", those being Thor: The Dark World and Captain Marvel. However a lot of them do suffer from being very cookie-cutter: you get the same brand of humor, same cinematography, same general plotlines/story arcs, and that "le quirky sorandom lul" brand of humor that I have come to despise. But at the same time I still find them to be fun in a "turn off your brain" way and taking it for what they are. They're not trying to be deep, they're not trying to ask meaningful questions, just a lot of world building and seeing all these characters interact with each other just like in the comic books, and I think that's why I've enjoyed it so much, that you have this massive intertwined story that's never been done on film before.
Have you seen any of them? Did you like them? What pisses you off most about the whole series?
Replies: >>865
They're boring, which is the worst atrocity that any piece of media can commit. I kinda liked the ending of that one Spider Man movie where he gets Iron Man's shit at the end, because the idea is novel and Spider Man is one of the only capeshit characters that has a tangible personality that isn't just being a gigantic faggot. But the MCU Spider Man is shit so I haven't seen the sequel or anything.

These movies are like sugary cereal. Unless you're a kid, a cup once in a while can be alright but eating it everyday will make you puke in agony.
As anon said, they're just really boring. They have the depth of 80s cartoons but are uninteresting to look at.
If I want background noise or turn my brain off, I'll just put on Seinfeld or some show from the 60s.

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

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
