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.
What is everyone's favorite types of martial arts movies?
In case anyone's wondering about the sword, they're used irl as Taoist charms. They're made mostly from Qing dynasty era cash coins.
What in the hell is happening in this tiny screenshot?
I think he's stabbing her and snakes are coming out. There's several of these movies where the heroine or the 1st heroine anyway gets impregnated by a supernatural snake and gives birth to a half human half snake child. So it makes sense.
I was actually hoping to put blam on the trail of several of these movies since they're so hard to find but my sleep schedule has been off for the past several movie nights and I've passed out before or just as he's come into chat. I'm kind of curious about this, what is presumably, a garuda movie.
There is no way that the actual movie is as good as the poster.
only one way to find out, adding it now
Check for weekly movie nights.

>The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years

Input is requested on which version of Jack we prefer.
Now Playing; The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years
1st Jack is good
Kaiju & Kaijin and other Tokusatsu!
Well if you liked those I've got a selection of of Kong poster art too.
Oh also here's some concept art from a canceled Kong remake from the mid 90s.
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!

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.
Saw the new Beavis & Butthead movie. I was pretty skeptical about it because I remember not really being big into the 2011 seasons, but I had a lot of fun with this one. I got a gut laugh out of that scene where they take the ranting of dumb bitches about their "privilege" at complete face value and they started stealing shit because they thought they had the "privilege" to do so.
I enjoyed it. Though i feel it had wasted potential and did some things i didnt like.
>meikyuu black company
mediocre. Some filler and some boring parts. And weird cutoffs where you dont really know whether you missed a episode or not sometimes because it just skips forward a bit. Its not like a timeskip. Its basically just not telling you a few details what happened and just kind of fast forwards it.
Just watched picrel.
10/10. Pretty fucking good. It's a fun action flick and nothing more, and it doesn't need to be anything more.
Random movies that I watched:
>Fat City (1972)
Stacy Keach is a washed-up boxer with an alcoholic addiction. Jeff Bridges is an up-and-coming boxing star. I had high hopes for this one, but the acting was terrible, and the boxing might have been even worse. You'd only watch this to see a young (and extremely goofy-looking) Jeff Bridges.
>Hard Eight (1996)
Paul Thomas Anderson's first feature film. Cinematography is great, and Philip Baker Hall's character is great. But John (played by John C. Reily) and Clementine (the Goop lady) are insufferable idiots. I remember an anon saying it's hard to see the point of PTA's movies sometimes, and this was one that fit that description perfectly. The film was all about Sydney (Baker Hall), meaning it was a great character piece. But everyone else was one-dimensional and motivations were lackluster. It should have stayed as a short film.
>The Bad Sleep Well - 悪い奴ほどよく眠る (1960)
Akira Kurosawa classic with a basis of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The cinematography is great, and you can tell Kurosawa had complete mastery of black-and-white films. Highly recommend.
>All About Our House - みんなのいえ (2001)
I had high hopes for this one after Welcome Back, Mr. McDonald. But it's shit. Characters create conflict because they're dumb. I couldn't finish it and I would not recommend it. Only funny part was rig
Binging the last few (good) seasons of Top Gear and now The Grand Tour.
funny brits being funny
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
That's a neat trick and all but why facebook frog?
I watched Starship Troopers and I love it. Everyone bitching about how it's fascist is retarded, it's an obvious satire with the over-the-top news flashes and propaganda and the Earth government, while absolutely authoritarian, is not at all fascist. It's actually a diverse paradise. No ethnic conflict, people of all colors living and working together without any racial tension, coed showers where there's zero sexual tension or harassment/rape, Earth being led by a strong independent woman of color, show me where ANY of that is happening in today's supposedly peaceful and loving democracies. Even ignoring all the overblown "fascism bad" moments and the false flag meteor it's a paradise, I'd live there in a heartbeat even if I get ventilated or brainsucc'd by giant bugs.
And I now know where two of the memes come from.
going through Andromeda again and this time i'm actually enjoying it. i guess it helps when you pay attention to the characters and what their master plans are. still feels cheap compared to other scifi and the acting can be stale/subpar from some of them. ending up liking Tyr the most for basically being /pol/ incarnate. harper is more annoying than likeable but maybe that's what they were going for. becca and romy are still cute.
Caught up to where I was with Andromeda now, and I'm getting bored again. A mildly interesting story ruined by bad acting, a bad script, and bad CGI. Going to get through it this time though.
Going back to Season 2 of Lexx again and I forgot how much I loved this show as weird and fucked up and insane as it is. It strikes that that they absolutely could've made it more serious and intense but decided to make it weird just for fun. Music is excellent too.
buddy i just watched this all the way through and it's garbage. it's only slightly better than moonfall by a very slim margin, and worse off because of it since moonfall is comically bad it's good. this is just on the wrong side of below average.
because it's still easier to teach astronauts how to work a drill than to teach drillers how to fly a space shuttle. not like it matters since they depict them like flying a F18 and taking off from a stationary position.
more like master bait
No, you can't pick more than one.
>why would I do that?
Because you're a human being with your own genes and upbringing along with your own ideas and biases.
Now pick one Lethal Weapon movie or fuckoff.
k-pax or Quills. Can't is a four letter word. Also What Dreams May Come used to be way up there. No YOU'RE gay. Grow a heart nigger lover.
It's winter and soon to be Christmas. Have you been watching any movies or specials related to this holiday? Post and talk about your favorites here.
I've re-watched Jingle All the Way recently. It was pretty fun for what it was. It's a favorite of mine.
>wife gets watch from the corp
>mc takes her watch off so that she doesnt die
I love it when I find things in movies that I miss as a kid
>Frosty the Snowman (1969)
Was definitely a classic growing up that I hope we get to watch next year on Christmas.
>Mon oncle Antoine (1971)
A Quebecois film following an orphaned boy and his life in a small town. His uncle is the caretaker of the town as well as owns a little corner store. Takes place around Christmas eve. It's atmospheric, contains adultery, and is quite depressing, but I like it.
I watched it for the first time this year. I was amazed that I actually sat through the whole thing and actually chuckled a few times.
Fuck you loser, it's not even halloween yet, there's TONS of shit to watch for halloween.
Oh nvm, just realized how slow this place is.
