Despecialized? nip audio please :^)
If you have it and upload it, I just might.
The mkv version of the despecialized edition has a ton of dubs https://pastebin.com/UrCE4vMb
If you don't want to bother with a gorillion mega links there are some torrents around but only a few of them have the extra audio tracks.
Now Playing: Willard (1971)
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
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.
>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!
no because i believe racemixing is detrimental to everyone invovled
Understandable, have a nice day.
TV NIGHT IN 40 MINUTES
TV NIGHT NOW
Movies, TV shows, Cartoon/Animes, Documentaries. Everything goes.
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.
>Top Gun: Maverick
Saw it yesterday with my dad and it was actually really fucking good. I can't really say much about it except that it does just about everything right without being a nostalgiafest. Very recommend
The first two episodes are out, I finished the first one and it's really boring. Nothing really happens, and they're giving Obi-Wan the TLJ treatment by making him doubt himself and becoming bitter towards everyone, although here at least there's an excuse for it unlike with Luke. The sith nigress is also portrayed as childish and impulsive which I find mildly amusing. I hope it gets better but I'm losing hope.
Sounds like trash marxist propaganda, no thanks. The holohoax never happened and Hitler did nothing wrong. Have talking to yourself faggot
It's an anti-war film rather than a pro-marxist film. For example, when the protagonist is enlisted early on in the film to serve under the Belarusian resistance (aka going against the nazis), his mother is distraught with grief and is completely against him going. It also doesn't touch the jews or the Holocaust in any way shape or form if I remember it correctly. Does it show cruelty from Belarusian nazis? Yes, but hell, I don't think you should expect that every soldier conscripted ever by any military is an upstanding citizen when dealing with the enemy. And the ending is the protagonist realizing - even after experiencing the horrors of war - that no one is born evil.
Overall, I agree with the original poster. Really has great portraiture too of the characters.
I saw Deathstalkers 1-3. First one is good, second is great, third is meh. None of the women were as Amazonian as I hoped, but the action was good.
>i'll get you, and Deathstalker too!
made me laugh but also made me very upset
Watched Match of Titans, and despite the name "Movie 4" being very offputting, I enjoyed it. It recycles a lot of the fight footage from Deathstalker 1 and Barbarian Queen but it's a lot more entertaining than 3 was. Lots of fights and a plot that knows it's not trying to be anything special. Plenty of tits. Also features a lesbian barbarian and her personal traveling harem that forces a servant girl to be her sex slave, so don't give me that "yuri is pure" bullshit.
What films did you watch in school? We watched picrel
Who would've thought the gnahzees did a better job at High School comedy in 1944 than modern day anime/manga writers?
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
found it, it was The Eagle
Pitch your idea for a movie in this thread, no matter how outlandish/insane/stupid it may be. This is a judgement free zone :^)
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?
>However it had to have been found and watched in the first place, and in that vein I would believe the show was simply unique.
More unique at the time... TNG was my trek, it was wild how it seemed like anything could happen, episodes could be completely different from one another, focus on different characters. There were certain cliches that were repeated, but no real formula, and a great cast.
Looking back from today's perspective, after it's been copied so much, it's still unique in some of the things it *didn't* do: it had an episodic format without a lot of drawn-out plots, less soap opera aspects, less "self awareness" and winking at the audience. I can't imagine exactly how it plays for somebody coming to it after watching revived Doctor Who or Stargate or whatever.
Animated series is creative because it uses scripts recycled from TOS, but it's of notoriously poor quality. I would say that if you're enthusiastic about it, then give it a go. As for the movies, it's a pretty mixed bag. The Motion Picture's pacing is fucked because it's a television script drawn out over two hours. It's a bad movie, but it has a nice aesthetic. I would rank them Wrath of Khan > The Voyage Home > Undiscovered Country > 2009 > Search for Spock > The Motion Picture > You probably shouldn't bother with anything after here > First Contact > Beyond > Generations > Don't even bother thinking about the next ones > Into Darkness > The Final Frontier > Nemesis. I don't think I've seen Insurrection, but assume it's also shit.
I really don't think a connoisseur has to be beholden to watching every single episode of TOS or even TNG. DS9 is a mixed bag because it has a pretty weak beginning, a terrible ending, but some really strong middle to later seasons. The cast isn't as memorable, but it's way more consistently good in the middle than any of the other series. I almost would recommend Enterprise because Porthos and I wanna fuck T'Pol, but it's pretty bad. Don't watch Voyager and all that CBS All Access garbage. I'd sooner watch Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict than that shit again.
I remember the cat lady being pretty hot in the animated series. How much of the show features her compared to the main crew?
M'Ress was introduced to replace Uhura because all the budget went into the voice cast and they thought they could get away with cutting out Nichols, but after the cast disagreed and she was brought back in later episodes. I haven't watched that must of TAS to tell you if she was completely written out, but she has some screen time.
>deep space 9
stick with the ToS and TnG movies. im not really a fan of anything after TnG, and the really new stuff is complete SJW agenda driven garbage
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
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.
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

The B series has some good tits, but the women's faces really don't do it for me.
What do you think of the Star Wars series ?
For me I think it's overrated and blown out too much, it doesn't deserve it's high status or this amount of attention, there are lots I mean lot of other media that does things better then Star Wars.
I could give out examples but most of them are anime so wew.
Although I may be wrong because I never watched a Star Wars movie.
I made this thread to not derail the /v/ thread
I remember a nuStar wars comic were they draw Luke like a girl. It was fucking horrible.
The OT is good. Overrated as fuck, no disagreement there, but they're competent movies that tell a decent story. I'm not a sci-fi man myself, but I understand why people like them.
The prequels reek of George being up his own ass and no one having the balls to tell him he smells like shit and anything touched by the mouse is just a shitty cash grab without half the thought put into them that even the prequels had.
I assume he meant "if you kill your enemies they win" bs outside of the OT and EU. Either that or he's retarded.
Top right and bottom left I would. Top left, I'd consider. Probably not bottom right. Weird as fuck considering they're all the same "girl"
the OT is kind of the grandfather of the Abrams mix tape mystery box kind of shit, just way more competently executed comparatively
PT, George's head just seemed to be way too far up his own ass and distracted with everything but the actual movies and how good they were, still far better than the yidsney shit
the ST exists here so that some other reality could get the actually good version made possible by the universe where Disney died with Walt and George's early 1980's divorce never happened, so I can just ignore its existence
you can't really judge fans of the universe fairly though by the films alone, because especially in the case of people who grew up with this series over like 40 years, a fuck ton of novels and comics and other shit exist from before the yidsney buyout that George didn't really care about so interfered in little, written by a large group of actually fair to great writers (for the franchise tier genre) who fixed George's plot mistakes as best they could and managed to breathe a fuck ton of life and depth to the universe and the story
the EU and cartoons (with all their flaws) is what actually made this all so great and sustained this franchise all this time, took advantage of the potential of the thematics and galaxy in a way the execution of the films never quite totally lived up to
The prequels are painful to watch but I love the world building they have which made some great vidya and cartoons possible.
I would like to see a remake of episode 1(not by yidsney of course). Concise and maybe animated.
Just imagine a podracing scene animated like Redline.
I liked the original trilogy, but the EU, especially the Old Republic, is better for the franchise as a setting. Lucas's attempt at an official EU work, the prequel trilogy, was miserable but provided a basis for better official EU works. Now that the EU has been rendered non-canon, except for when it's convenient, there's no reason to care about the series except as something to fondly remember and use as a gateway for others into better science fiction. However, that's basically impossible since almost everyone in the developed world knows, watched, or played something from the franchise.
