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 probably saw these as a kid but I don't remember them.  I should rewatch them.
>Watership Down
>Animal Farm
I've read the books but never seen the films.  I think people's impression of the Watership Down film has unfortunately overwritten the lovely prose and simple story in the book, which is a shame.  The book isn't some testament to nature's cruelty or anything like that: there is violence, because the main characters are wild rabbits so of course they get into fights with each other and other animals, but the violence isn't highlighted and it isn't described in grisly detail.  I seriously recommend the book because it's such a pleasant, easy 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

>Scorpius 
Hated where he came from as he was tortured by the other half of himself, as he was a mutated experiment, a bad hybrid. He was half peacekeeper and that made him run towards them and he thus was serving them but also only as a means to get revenge against the *looks it up because forgot name* Scarran, he hated Scarrans and wanted to be on the Sebacean side and also it shows him chimp out a lot when acting like a Scarran but was always trying to be more Sebacean as.. .well he was tortured and hated them. Do you not recall his story as a child? The only odd thing he did was the Scarran blood oath and they only did that to make a joke about le dracula jab Cryton or whatever it's spelled like kept making about Scorpius being 'Nosferatu' over and over again. I'd cut that out with how he hated them. 

Also because he's Scarran it makes sense Scorp would just like torturing people due to the aggressive and cold hearted nature of that breed of which is why he's okay with the torture chair position and the bdsm shit in the show.  

The Lexx was raunchy and awful comedy also. I could not get through it, but then again I kinda can't stand comedy.

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.

>What did you not hate in it? Serious question
Don't get me wrong. It's pretty meh and generic. But somehow I mildly enjoyed it while watching it. The jokes aren't great but also aren't terrible. Kinda like Detective Pikachu but without the nigger so better by default. That's probably the only compliment I can give to this movie. As modern movies go I somehow didn't hate it. I probably wouldn't watch it again though.
>Does nip shit like Pokemon movies count?
Sure. I actually have a memory which I don't know If it's real or not. I used to have a vhs of a pokemon movie in which Ash and the other fags left their pokemon by themselves to have a vacation or something. I remember a part in which Team Rocket's meowth got trapped under a snorlax and the snorlax shitted or farted on him (not in a detailed way of course, more like that scene in that Dinosaur King anime). Was this real or did I just have scat dreams as a kid?

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.

Yes that was real. There were Pokemon-only shorts that played right before each main movie, see:

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.

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.

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

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.

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
