Movies start in 25 minutes
I don't even know. I'll see you again next week.
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.
Metropolis hasn’t aged as well as Nosferatu and other silent movies like Battleship Potemkin, which is my personal favorite. I tried to watch it, but I ended up falling asleep. Still, it was very impressive and imaginative.
look up 1001 movies to watch before you die and watch most of them up until 2000s as most of the films is put on there for political brownie points. but i got some picks for you from me personally:
>the roaring twenties
>steamboat round the bend
>death of Stalin
>night and the city (1950)
>Die Nibelungen: Siegfried
> the seawolf (1941)
>the grey fox (1982)
> dog solders
Original Conan The Barbarian
>Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
>Enter The Void
>Jodorowski's Holy Mountain
>The Evil Dead
>Natural Born Killers
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
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
>far too much soap drama for my liking
all the soap elements are satirical
it's not as over the top as the pilot in s2, they wound it in a lot
mainly IMO because the plot was going so many other weird ass places
>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
you're right, the few shows that did any serious long running narratives (and there weren't many before X-Files), those stories bookended seasons, with filler inbetween
some series still do it more or less
>I expected more backward talking midgets and premonitions from coffee cups than I've been getting
you're looking for s3
>Is Dale Cooper a good character or an amusing set of affectations?
s1&2, a good character that's an amusing set of affectations
>How do you like your coffee?
>Favourite Lynch Film
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.
>4:3 for "artistic" purposes
>had to stop and look up that it was actually supposed to be like that & I didn't just grab some shit rip
Why did they give him 70 million burger bucks to do this? Were they that embarrassed by the Whedon cut? WB has no idea what it's doing. And it doesn't matter either way because they already rebooted Batman
Hopefully this leads the death knell for superheros movies. I don't hate them per say, but their complete domination of the box office has been annoying.
Why? other than the aspect ratio
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
this kind of just ties the whole DC thing they were doing there off, did give some people like Miller (as much of an asshole as he seems) a fucking chance to actually do something, gave Leto a little bit of redemption
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
might try Shazam, idk
and no I don't only watch capeshit, I just go through phases
last one was westerns
>might try Shazam, idk
It's an alright flick, fun to watch but nothing to write home about. Could have been much better.
Your superhero "phase" is best spent reading comics. Pic related, a little something I put together with anons years ago. The Shazam comic on there is an excellent read.
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
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
>Ford v. Ferrari
>Blade Runner 2049
>Toy Story 3
I heard Birdman and the Hara-Kiri remake are good but I haven't seen them yet.
I liked Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
The new American Godzilla movies have had too much human drama for my taste. hope KvG will be different but I doubt it.
Yeah, that's what a lot of anons have said about it. I personally didn't mind but I can definitely see it being a problem.
I guess I have different taste since I prefer the first legendary Godzilla film to all of its sequels.
I watched Leon the Professional, The Orphan, Lolita 1997, Lamb, Moonrise Kingdom, Innocence, Hanna, Mustang, Pretty Baby, Yulenka, Curfew, Show Me Love, Alice in the Cities, A Little Princess, Water Lillies, F-Report, The Blue Lagoon, Laurin(89), Sleepwalking, Matilda, You Were Never Really Here, Lawn Dogs, Take Me to the River, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, Stray Dogs, Spirit of the Beehive, Stephanie, The Taste of Tea, Hounddog, Bridge to Terabithia, The Beguiled, Somewhere, Alice(88), City of lost children, Cape Fear(62), Arcadia, Tomorrowland, Christiane F, Walkabout, The Florida Project, My Girl(91), Addams Family Values, Young Aphrodites, The Ice Palace, Swing vote, Tideland, Bad Seed, Cocoon, Annabele: Creation, the opening scene of Desire, Phoebe in Wonderland, Gifted, Spark, Caspe, Because of Winn-dixie, Zazie dans le metro, Amanda, Waterworld, What Maisie Knew, Paper Moon, Sundays and Cybele, Hideous Kinky, Svanurinn, Miss Violence, the Troop Zero, Ana, Tuck Everlasting, System Crasher, Angela 1995, Alice Sweet Alice, Romys Salon and The Trouble with Being Born, now what do I watch?
Where do you watch these. I feel like lists like these are so obvious that you'd out yourself looking these up.
I've been trying to watch sundays and cybele for years.
>what do i watch?
cria cuervos... its better than orphan and lolita I can tell you that much. Not as good at leon or papermoon though.
>you'd out yourself
to who? the only film I think you'd have trouble with is Pretty Baby, the rest are mainly foreign
I don't think any of the others are actually illegal
What other kind of person would look up these movies? What other pretense could there be?
doesn't answer who you're "outing" yourself to
people seem to forget that simply being a thing in itself has no consequences
you've still got a couple years at least before anybody's kicking your door in to stick a penile plethysmograph on you to see if you should be executed or not based on browser history
live it up while you can
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.
