I'm not sure why "his" movies aren't that much discussed. I would really recommend Oscar and hibernatus the kinda of chaotic humor where funes goes from confused to near psycho is really funny.

Yeah, I watched that, it was perfect. I kind of get the weird as tapestry that looks like the first page of the book.
Do you have any other recommendations?

Work at e-waste recycling. Every couple of weeks someone drops off tapes, either just a few or a bunch. Sometimes it's stuff they got off the air. These are all the ones I've kept so far. Thinking of getting rid of some of them (looking at you flintstones) if I get any more.

I didn't even know they made those.  Do they have subtitles or is it dubbed trash?
Reminder that VHS tapes degrade 2% every time you watch them through, always convert them to a digital format as soon as you can if no other copies exist

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.
>>672
>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

I just watched Blade Runner 2049 yesterday. It was pretty fucking good.
I've also been watching Ken Burns The Vietnam War and will start to watch Initial D later.

No, it was released in 1977 as normal.  The production had some trouble due to the logistics of shooting in a wild jungle, but the entire shooting schedule was apparently 10 months.  It was remastered on Blu-Ray in 2014, but the reason you may think it had trouble in production is that it released a month after Star Wars, which naturally means it may as well have not existed.

I watched the new Venom and I enjoyed it. Not sure if it was just the theater I went to but once Carnage came around it got REALLY fucking loud, but in a weird way I enjoyed having my eardrums blasted. You don't go to these kinds of movies for plot but the little there was was decent enough. However they still somehow managed to sneak in a dup btfo by having Venom preach to a crowd of ravers about accepting illegal aliens and somehow they don't see the irony in this. Also the vilain's love interest is a nog because it's CY + 6. The banter between Eddie and Venom was good though, worth pirating just to see the banter. Also the mid-credits scene confirms they're going to show up in the new Spider-Man, so now once again I have to watch the nu capeshit because it's fucking Spider-Man. I'm also betting that Tobey Maguire and Spiderverse spidermen are going to show up, if you watch the trailer you'll understand why but I won't force anymore capeshit on you, you deserve better. I'm just annoyed that Yidney and Soyny keeping using literal paradoxes and alternate universe/timeline fuckery as an excuse to make more money.
Just saw the Halloween Kills movie. I have only seen the first film in the franchise so maybe I'm missing some context here but the ending twist seemed to come out of nowhere and sort of ruined the plot [spoiler]made Myers essentially supernatural[/spoiler]. I have jumped in on a film franchise at the end before, this year I saw FF9 without having seen any of the previous movies and it was enjoyable as an action film.
Returning to Halloween Kills, the action kills and so forth were still good and some of the characters that died I didn't expect.

This is a bit late, but most of this thread is just me blogposting about movies I watch so I suppose it doesn't really matter.

I recently had the idea to watch the Deathstalker movies, since I'd seen some parts of Deathstalker II and it seemed like a fun pastiche of fantasy tropes and bad acting.  After watching the first two films and part of the third, I can safely say that Deathstalker II seems to be the high point of the series precisely because it doesn't take itself nearly as seriously.  The best things about these movies are the poster illustrations, honestly.

>Deathstalker
Standard "low fantasy" movie from the 1980s, which is a polite way of saying it was made on a shoestring budget and mostly features people running around in the woods or very simple sets.  There are a couple funny scenes and quite a few naked chicks, but it isn't really sexy.  You can skip this without missing anything.

>Deathstalker II
Deathstalker is played by a different actor, and this is more of a standard adventure story: there's an evil wizard who wants to do evil things and Deathstalker gets roped into helping some nameless chick he meets in a tavern.  It is difficult to explain just how campy and nonchalant the movie is: the opening sequence shows Deathstalker escaping from a couple of guards, and when the evil villainess gets a look at him through a window, she turns to the camera and says "I'll have my revenge - and Deathstalker too!"  Then the Deathstalker II title card pops onto screen and the dramatic music swells.

The entire movie is like that.  Deathstalker's sidekick girl has a modern accent (New York?  Valley girl?  Not sure.).  They get captured by amazons and Deathstalker is forced to fight for his freedom, which he does in a fucking squared circle pro wrestling ring.  There's so much goofy, campy stuff that I can't properly describe it.  Definitely worth a watch.
There's also some decent nudity, but it's some Hollywood actress who was probably raped, so that tempered my enjoyment of it.

>Deathstalker III
People running around in the woods.  A couple decent (and I use that term very generously) action shots, but overall completely mediocre.  A big disappointment, especially after the campy fun of Deathstalker II.

I haven't gotten around to watching Deathstalker IV yet.  Judging from the poster and the movie description it seems there will be more amazons (read: chicks in chainmail bikinis) in this one, so it may have some redeeming value.

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.

Off the top of my head, here's what I've got.  There is a stark contrast between pre-Adventure Time cartoons and post-Adventure Time cartoons.

Before:
- Avatar the Last Airbender (genuinely one of the best cartoon series ever made)
- My Life as a Teenage Robot (Jenny Wakeman is cute!)
- Kim Possible (this one may not quite hold up, but I remember loving it as a kid)
- Filmore (hall monitor buddy cops in middle school)
- Batman The Animated Series (genuinely one of the best cartoon series ever made)

After:
- Gravity Falls (the early stuff, anyway)
- The Amazing World of Gumball (season 1 and 2, at least; more if you really like it but don't feel compelled)
- Over the Garden Wall (about as good a dramatic cartoon miniseries as you'll get these days)

Kim Possible suffers from Kim Possible being the least interesting character in her own show. Even periphery characters like Bonnie have deeper characterization than the lead.  Kim Possible was a show carried by the strength of its villains.

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.

>popcorn flick fun but that's it
Do the John Wick movies claim to be anything else?  I haven't seen them myself but I'm always skeptical of this style of criticism.

>Rehash
I often see this term used to discredit movies and games, but rarely explained.  Why does a movie having a story similar to another one instantly mean it's worth discarding?
>well if they couldn't come up with a novel story then they shouldn't have made the film
Sure, but you should understand that there are plenty of character beats and comedy/action scenes in Toy Story 3 that make the film worth watching, even if the story itself is nothing new.  Considering the huge gap between 2 and 3 (1999-2010), I think it's fine for the director/producers to make a similar product to "remind" people about the characters and premise.
>but that's such a corporate way to think
It is, but any piece of art that is being sold needs to pay the piper, so to speak.  There are lots of beautiful, heartfelt films and works of art that never see success because they don't have a huge marketing budget or because they're too different from the audience's frame of reference.  Creating a large-scale animated film like Toy Story 3 requires that it is at least partially made to sell.

Pick 10 minutes of the movie and change the subs to your liking. (Subs here (My ten minutes are there already): https://files.catbox.moe/f7uewf.srt)
Just change the .srt extension to .txt and get writing. Download the movie as well to help you.
