I know we don't do recommendations this way, but I just want to shine a light on The Hunchback of Notre Dame from 1939 for nomination because it feels like it's 20 years ahead of its time.

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 did, it was extremely forgettable and screamed "nostalgia cashgrab". I could say the same for Toy Story 4 really.

so what's the plot supposed to be? it's like they're trying to do some kind of nu-farscape. all i saw were a bunch of xcom ships and bases, i don't see this going anywhere.
Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is great, same general artstyle as 2003 Clone Wars. You'll love it.
>>684 (OP) 
>It feels more aimed to adults than kids.
I had the same feeling. I think its the lighting and it trying to be more cinematic in the trailer then completely goofy, though it has some lol randumb parts. The problem is it's a Pixar movie. Every movie of theirs is the same now, with literally the same pacing and halfway through you get this "emotional" part with sad music and someone 'dies" or badly hurt and then everything comes out ok.
>>684 (OP) 
It's for children stuck in an adult's body, nostalgiabait for the monies.

We have movie nights, we have bad movie nights, but we don't have TV nights. Therefore I'm going to do a little pilot hue program here to see if there's enough interest.
WHAT: Watch TV shows with fellow anons
WHERE: https://cytu.be/r/ZZZTV
WHEN: Wednesday nights at 7:00 EST. Check last pic if you're confused.
WHY: It helps to pad out the long week between the biweekly gamenights and weekend movie nights.
For week 1, we'll have the following:
>Cubicle denizen Dilbert toils away at Path-E-Tech which makes undefined products. The focus is on his survival amongst a moronic boss, hostile co-workers and his malevolent pet, Dogbert.
Miami Vice
>Esplendent with authentic 1980s music, fashion, and vibe, "Miami Vice" follows two undercover detectives and their extended team through the mean streets of Miami, Florida.
>Ten survival "experts" attempt to survive alone. The winner receives $500,000.
Hope to see you there!

I'm liking the post show, the Botswana one pops out to me. The Grand Tours are more movie length, right? The Beach Buggy one pops out, might be nice some time the weather is worse later on in the year.
Replies: >>750
>The Grand Tours are more movie length, right?
Only Seamen and later are movie length season 4+ is specials only, no more regular show, the rest are normal single or double episode length except for the odd director's cut.
All the double episode specials are longer than the movie length ones, the Burma one we watched being an even longer director's cut.
There are also a few "mini-specials" that were segments on regular episodes that also have home video special-only cuts which are usually shorter.

I'll probably bring a regular episode in addition to Botswana to see if there is any interest.

Got a new tape a month ago but need to get another VCR. The salvation army says they got a warehouse that has a ton of them but they're lazy or something and won't stock the store i go to with any which is gay as fuck. I should just pressure those pricks to let me into their warehouse and give them five bucks for s damn VCR. Have you seen how much they are online now? It's absurd. I'm sure there's "deals" relative to the prices you see in initial searches but still a VCR is worthless to 99% of people fuckin sell me one for two bucks or fuck off.
>degrade 2% every time you watch them
The provided link only seems to refer to copying VHS, not simply watching them. Is there another source for that? I'll probably back my tapes up but I'll treat the whole situation differently if watching them at all degrades them, being I would back them up before further viewing. At least the ones where there's no known digital copies. such as pic related afaik

>second spoiler
nix that, it's online
"copying" VHS is just running it through a tape player normally and hooking up the composite out to a capture card to convert the analog signal into a digital file. it still plays the same way and degrades at the same rate.
Replies: >>677
are you certain it isn't the copy that suffers? at 2% you're saying a VHS can only be watched 50 times until it is pure static
Sorry to reply so late. I had misplaced the machine I access this site through.
It is in fact subtitled. I looked them up and they aren't too expensive to get in USA ebay.

What have you been watching?
Since It's almost Christmas I watched Tokyo Godfathers recently. I also watched Batman Ninja. Both pretty good films.
I'm thinking of going back to finish all of the Ghibli films too. Speaking of which, what is your favorite of them? Mine is Grave of the Fireflies.
Not movies but I also started re-watching DBZ and Mobile Suit Gundam.

Just watched this with family the other night. It's a good story, and the production quality is decent. Some really nice shots, and good honorabu roman characters. It's definitely not a masterpiece, but I was surprised to see it received staggeringly poor reviews. Why did people not like this film? It certainly wasn't worse than [current year] dogshit.

In terms of animated movies.  Both anime and western had its peak on the late 80's and 90's. Everything afterwards went downhill and I doubt It will ever shine like it used to. 
Films like Tarzan have yet to be surpassed in terms of body language and fluidity in animation and anime movies nowadays don't hold a candle to Ghibli's works and Akira.
Replies: >>723
What this fag >>722 said. Late 80s/90s is peak anime. The cutoff isn't really 2000 but more or less whenever a studio switched to fully digital animation tools.
One of the late exceptions would be REDLINE, being completely hand drawn. And it shows but then they also spent 7 years on it so maybe it shouldn't even count as an exception, starting before everyone had gone digital
If you like the GitS film you should watch Patlabor 2 the Movie. Directed by the same fag, it's basically proto-GitS.

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
