Thanks, I find it's cheap as fuck to get VHSs so I try to every so often, I want to get more of movies I haven't seen and/or haven't even heard of. The quality can be really good, I had a buddy show me the two Twin Peaks seasons on VHS on his giant rear projection tv and it looked great.

Nice. I'd like to get my hands on some cartoon tapes.
I don't have pics of them but I have Space Jam and some of the live action Action Man series episodes.

I don't have much of a review, Neandertits in Spain was a nice finish. I half remember Behind the Mask, first Howling is not my favorite and Jack and Jill is a masterpiece to ponder why one lives while experiencing it.

So tell me, anon. Was the new Mortal Kombat any good? I think I already know the answer.
There's so many new vidya films in the works. To name a few: Minecraft, MGS, another Yakuza movie, Space Invaders(how?), Megaman (by Netflix). another RE movie, Sonic 2, Borderlands, Rabbids, Just Dance, SMB by minion corp and other shit.
Any of these shitshows you are curious about?
I wonder what a Space Invaders movie will look like. It better not be pixels all over again.
A megaman film in the style of protomen would have been cool but knowing cuckflix that won't happen.
I didn't hate the Sonic movie so maybe I'll watch the new one.
So besides new releases Is there an already released videogame movie you enjoy? As much as the 1995 MK movie wastes potential is still one of my favorites.

Apparently a movie is supposed to come out for The Division but it looks like it's in something close to development hell. Hopefully it comes out and is good. The story premise is interesting and I liked the game...even though it's something I wouldn't play nowadays.
I remember my sister (film major) being excited for the Assassin's Creed movie, I warned her it was going to suck since 95% of all vidya movies are terrible but she didn't listen to me. She ended up hating it. Intuition is a funny thing,

Yes that was real. There were Pokemon-only shorts that played right before each main movie, see:

Has sleepy seen the new trailer for the Sopranos prequel movie? What do you think of it? I watched The Sopranos and enjoyed it so I think I'll be watching this. It's only a movie so it's not a real time investment like another tv show would be. The fact that's it's only a movie is a godsend in this day and age but it's never too late
I don't want to spoil too much right off the bat so just watch the trailer if you haven't already.

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

Is the Max Headroom tv show worth watching?
Started watching Red Dwarf and Andromeda. I thought Red Dwarf would be a drama but that was dispelled in the first 5 seconds. It's a bit dated and some of the britbong humor goes over my head but I'm enjoying it. Andromeda is also good but something about it just feels underwhelming, though I can't quite say what it is. I'm still hopeful so I'll see where it goes.

>Andromeda is also good but something about it just feels underwhelming, though I can't quite say what it is.
That may be due to Andromeda being "from Gene Roddenberry, the guy who made Star Trek."  It might be trying too hard to distinguish itself from Star Trek.  It's been a long time since I watched the series, however, and I only saw it on TV when I was a kid.

I think I'm figuring it out, it's playing it too safe and too generic. It's not really claiming any new ground and the few new ideas it does have its not expanding on. A lot of recycled CG shots and space battles that barely last more than a few seconds before leading to an underwhelming explosion that comes out of nowhere. The same goes for laser fights, just lots of sparks that seemingly come from nowhere. The non-serial format is also annoying, nothing really changes between episodes. The characters have potential but none of them have gone really in-depth, instead focusing on moral issues that have been discussed to death in several other shows and in much better ways. It doesn't even have any of the sex stuff that's common in scifi of the period although Andromeda herself is a 9/10. I'll keep watching it but it's starting to become a slog, and I'm only halfway through Season 1. So far my consensus is
Lexx > Farscape > Andromeda
Replies: >>513
That's a shame.  I do remember Andromeda herself being cute and there being some funny concepts due to her being a robot.
Ah, there's a series I've been meaning to watch for years but never gotten around to.  I loved the puppets and animatronics, especially in the larger shots like markets or city streets.  It was really nice to see a series use lots of practical effects like that instead of relying too much on CGI.

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.

FInished season 1 of Red Dwarf, I went into it thinking it was going to be a drama; that notion was dispelled in the first 10 seconds. It's a good start, quintessential britbong humor but I enjoyed it. Hopefully it gets even better with the later seasons.

I just watched Sorcerer (1977) today and I wanted to post something while it was fresh in my memory.  The film is the second adaptation of the French novel Le Salaire de la Peur, or The Wages of Fear as it's more commonly known in English.  I described that film in >>354, but the premise is that four men have to transport unstable nitroglycerine across several hundred miles in unstable trucks.

Sorcerer follow the same general story, but the cargo is cases of dynamite that have been stored improperly in the South American jungle, which has caused the nitro to leak out of them and pool in the bottom of their crates.  The four main characters are an assassin, a man fleeing the Irish mob, a Palestinian militant who set a bomb in Israel, and a French banker who was accused of fraud and couldn't pay his collateral.

The movie had a bit of a troubled production due to being shot on location and is more "lopsided" than the French film.  The editor fucking loves jump cuts, and there is no spoken English for the first 16 minutes - in fact, the subtitled version I found didn't include subtitles for all lines of dialogue, which made me think I was missing something.  However, once the dynamite and driving were introduced around the halfway mark, the film quickly accelerated into some of the best tension I have ever seen.  If you like tension or suspense at all, you owe it to yourself to watch this one.

Sorcerer is much grittier than The Wages of Fear, and it presents each obstacle and piece of action in a much shorter fashion: instead of coming across something in the road and having the characters observe and discuss it, the film will simply cut to an obstacle and let the image speak for itself.  The characters don't speak much except to get on each others' nerves or to express some deep emotion when their backs are up against the wall, which I found to be extremely refreshing because I hate films that rely on dialogue too much.  The film being in colour adds a lot to it being generally visually stimulating, and there are smaller details that underscore how shitty the infrastructure in South America is - the characters have to cannibalize several old, shitty trucks in order to make one that's even halfway functional, and the montage of them going through all these metal husks to find parts and assemble them is really engaging without veering into outright comedy.

I was also unsure how this film would handle the potential for character deaths, since the point of the French film was to be an existentialist exercise in misery and suffering, but obviously that doesn't play well to a Hollywood audience.  I will just say that I was genuinely surprised in several places, and not in the hamfisted way you'd expect:
>character says "oh, how I wish I could see my family again"
>character constantly mentions "oh man, if only my family could see me now"
>character ACTUALLY LIVES, ZOMG!!!!!
And so on.  There's none of that in Sorcerer.

I want to mention the editing more, because the film is incredibly stark: there is very little camera movement except for the occasional pan/tracking shot, or a POV shakycam shot from inside the truck seat or under its wheels.  It almost feels like the film doesn't care about the viewer, but it's not actively hard to watch.  I think the best way I can describe it is that every shot is meant to have the emotion of standing on a road in the middle of a humid jungle: it's not there to be your friend, but it doesn't care enough about you to hate you, either.  It's just what it is, and what it is is probably going to kill you.  There were several scenes in this movie that genuinely had me glued to my seat with my heart in my throat, which is very rare for me.

>sometimes I wanted it to just shut up for a bit and actually be serious but it always had to shoehorn a joke in somewhere
It's a real shame because all the elements for a fun, genuine adventure with a bit of gravity are there, but the writers have all been sworn to practice the doctrines of Joss Whedon, so there's never allowed to be any genuine emotion from any character.  Odin's death is so disconnected from the rest of the film it's laughable, and yet it's supposed to be the rising event for Thor and Loki's character arcs.

It would have been so much more fun if the film had just let Thor have a few Serious Moments™ and reflect on what Odin's death means for him, since he's basically a prince but way too much of a meathead to live up to the role of being a king.

I really like this movie too. Didn't it live in some kind of production hell and never got released until like a decade ago?
Replies: >>499
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.
