I know that there's at least a few of you here besides me that love this stuff and sleepy /vhs/ was missing a place to discuss it.
Because there's crossover lets say Sentai goes here too.

There aren't many manananggal or penanggalan movies out there and from a quick glance it looks like we might have seen the highest quality ones already.

I'm a little about posting this one here because I don't think it's much of a martial arts move per se.
On the other hand it does star Richard Harrison and Wu Tank has a copy so what the hell.

Because I'm filthy weeb, I mostly watch anime and that shit but I decided to watch some japanese movies.
>Shin Godzilla
This was my first Godzilla movies and it's pretty good, the visual were great and the soundtrack is amazing, the story is meh but they are many great scenes out there, I say that it's worth a watch I'll maybe check out other Godzilla films.
>Lesson Of Evil
Pretty brutal I like it, they really went all out on this film even angering some journos, it's not one of most well made movies out there but it was fun watch.

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:
Dilbert
>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.
Alone
>Ten survival "experts" attempt to survive alone. The winner receives $500,000.
Hope to see you there!

MIAMI VICE S05E17: FREEFALL
https://cytu.be/r/ZZZTV

It's been a wild ride, almost three years ago I decided to start doing this since I was bored on Wednesday nights and needed something to pad out the week. And even though there's barely anyone here, it's still a joy to watch old shows every week. So thanks to each of you that have been coming, and here's to many more.

A movie about a jewish suburban family made by a jewish director that isn't subversive but still markedly jewish about an ugly brat who is picked on by the whole school for being ugly and insufferably meek and treated unfairly by her family even thought she somewhat brings it on herself for being a brat. It's one of those movies that trivializes and deconstructs the story it's telling which makes sense since it was originally titled Faggots and Retards which is why I decided to watch it, and has no resolution to the presented conflict; a movie with little attachment as the protagonist was written to not be morally above her antagonizers. The only other point it has is what the movie is plainly about, which is to be relatable for anyone who was/is a faggot, retard, or cringeworthy as a child or disregarded by their environment.

Late Night with the Devil, a second-place talk show host invites a supposedly demon-possessed girl onto his show to beat Johnny Carson in ratings. You can probably guess what happens next.
Very well-acted and captures the 70s aesthetic very well. Ending did feel a bit forced but the rest is very well done. A lot of people are bitching since some of the title cards it uses between shots are AI generated, fucking cry about it you'll find a way to adapt just like animators had to adapt to 3D animation and the music industry had to adapt to piracy, your kneejerk reactions of "BAN IT NOW REEE" only proves how replaceable you'll be once the kinks and major discrepancies are worked out in a few years.
also NINE studio cards at the start holy shit
Here's what I watched in April within the span of 1-3 weeks in chronological order.
>Juno
I think enough people have seen this movie or know what kind of it is.
>Broken Blossoms
Silent film about an abused child of a prize fighter rescued by a student of Buddha-turned-opium smoker in Limehouse.
>Napoleon Dynamite
Same as Juno.
>Welcome to the Dollhouse
See post above.
>easy A
Teen sex comedy that has characters with personalities and no genre contrivances. Emma Stone carries this movie, it would be unremarkable or bad without her. For what it is it's a standout in its genre.
>500 Days of Summer
Manic pixie dream girl and solemn romantic dating each other and it goes wrong because of the former's personality and the latter's expectations. Not terrible but if you already dislike these kinds of movies don't bother.
>Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
Whimsigothic kids movie based on a book series.

I checked out the 2000 Brazilian movie A Dog's Will (O Auto da Compadecida) as per a recommendation from a stranger. It's (apparently) a well-known movie that even garnered some popularity in other Latin American countries.
The movie's about two poor men (Chicó and João Grilo) who wander into a town. They end up working for a baker and, well, things derail quickly. It's a comedy and up until about halfway in the movie, it's a pretty good comedy. João is constantly talking out of his ass and the pair get into comical situations.
I ended up pausing halfway, thinking this was pretty good. But then shit goes down very quickly. Spoilers ahead.
João ends up getting killed and gets judged - along with all the main characters we've dealt with so far. Jesus is black (because João is racist), surprise surprise. João calls upon the Virgin Mary (she is the compassionate woman referred to in the Portuguese title) to help them get out of going to Hell. And then every fucking guy gets excused. The baker's wife who was a slut the whole movie? Yeah, she's forgiven because right before death, she told her husband that she cucked him because she wanted to die after him because she couldn't stand the idea of seeing him die first. She wanted to cuck him to death because she loved him. I am not making that shit up. So the couple go to Purgatory. The priest and bishop who were centrally concerned about money and were cursing the man who shot them? The priest (who is lower in rank, mind you) remi

Any popular films or any films overall that have a generally postive reception.
I guess i'll start.
I did not like the godfather movies. I liked the first half of the first movie but the rest bored the crap out of me. I actually had to force myself to stay awake and take multiple breaks because i kept almost falling asleep.
I did not like teriminator 1 and 2. I thought it was boring. I liked Alien but i did not like Aliens. I didnt like Aliens because it trivialized the alien itself. It turned it from a horror movie to some stupid machine gun killing alien movie.
Replies: >>2366
I felt the same way about The Godfather, after the diner shootout and when he flees to Italy it all became a blur and I completely lost track of what was happening.
I liked Terminator but not T2. Felt like it was trying to do too much with the first movie which, at the time, was little more than an action movie with primitive CGI. I actually think RotM is the best of the original "trilogy" even if it's no longer canon (fuck nu-Terminator though)
Alien is a great movie and I thought Aliens followed it up pretty well. However Alien 3 throwing Aliens into the trash within the first five minutes is a perfect example of how NOT to write a sequel.

Not an unpopular opinion here but my sister keeps trying to get me to watch all the new Marvel movies. After No Way Home (which I liked very much) I'm done with the MCU, they have used up or killed off all the characters anyone cares about and I am not going to watch a dozen other movies just to know what's happening in the new one. The last one I saw was the newest Doctor Strange which was incredibly disappointing, and that was also the last time I saw a movie in theaters. My own mother even wanted to see GotG 3 with me, even though she cares even less about the MCU than I do. Hearing my sister drone on and on about how good the new Spiderverse is is starting to annoy me, I've told her over and over again that I don't care about it anymore.

I think the godfather was a jewish attack on Italians and Catholicism. Why didn't the jews just make a movie about their own organized crime? They are sure to know more about that...

Just watched the first two episodes of this thing.
Why do all cartoon characters for children have to be loud and annoying now?
Did this people even bother watching a 20s cartoon? The whole point is that old cartoons barely spoke coherent english and relied on body language to tell the story.
These daffy cunts never shut the fuck up. Even Popeye and Bugs Bunny didn't talk as much and as loudly as them.
The animations is nice and the backgrounds great but the plot is the most generic and bland shit. They never take advantage of being based on old animation.
