I'm planning to watch this. People have been talking a lot of positive things about it. I saw the trailer and it doesn't really seem like my cup of tea but the it's getting so many praising reviews I'm considering it. Anyone here watched it?

It's about German scientists doing weird experiments on people and turning them into zombies during WW2, apparently. That's what I got from the trailer anyway. Seems to be very action-oriented which is the aspect I don't quite like.

I saw an Asian movie a few years back. I think it might have been Chinese (it was dubbed). It had amazing aesthetics, it was about royalty and took place in a royal palace. It was all gold, colorful glass panels and very beautiful surroundings overall. I don't remember the plot, just that some intrigue occurred between the various family members, where someone tried to poison someone and at the end there were armies and ninja assassinations or something.

Has anyone seen this movie? Does anyone know its name?

I want to see those pretty aesthetics again…

Re-watched the time-travel science-fiction film 12 Monkeys. During this viewing I have considered the villain, a loner Virologist who unleashes a doomsday plague to wipe out humanity, to possibly be a warlock. This made the film that much more fun to watch.

I think, Dr. Railly, you have given
your alarmists a bad name. Surely
there is very real and very convincing
data that the planet cannot survive the
excesses of the human race: proliferation
of atomic devices, uncontrolled breeding
habits, the rape of the environment, the
pollution of land, sea, and air. In this
context, isn't it obvious that "Chicken
Little" represents the sane vision and
that Homo Sapiens' motto, "Let's go
shopping!" is the cry of the true lunatic?

And at the very end a succubus astrophysicist from the future appears. It seems to be left up to interpretation whether she is there to stop the warlock, or if she is a witch, there to help the warlock complete his mission to fly around the world with his vials of doomsday virus.

I just watched "Angel's Egg" (1985)

All I have to say is…

what?

The music is beautiful and so very well used. The art is absolutely gorgeous, and it's just really dark and fantasy-like. There are giant trees, giant skeletons, a giant town with this weird giant machine, etc.

Story-wise, nothing is explained. Honestly. There's only like, a few pieces of dialogue, and we don't even know the two main characters' names. We don't get anything explained to us lore-wise too. It's pretty dark-soulish. I don't mind that though. It was a beauty to watch.

I recommend it. It's only an hour and 11 minutes long too. Watch it in the dark too for more atmosphere. It already has a ton of it, but the darkness makes it even more atmospheric.

Here's the link to the version I saw. That being, it's dubbed.

Watched Ralph Breaks the internet, the new Grinch movie, and the first 10 minutes of Nutcracker, the 4 Realms (which I promptly slept though).

I of course loved the new Ralph movie. It was well animated, well paced, and well written. The feels centering around the changing of friendships were unexpected but well done, if a bit on the nose some times. The references weren't too cringey which I was worried about, but it will date the movie years down the line unlike the first. While I liked the first one better this sequel didn't disappoint. If you liked the first, and/or modern Disney in general, then give it a watch.

The Grinch was ok. If I was to sum it all up as shortly as I could I would say this version is soft.
The look, characterization, motivation, and relations with others throughout the film were in general much softer. He never felt truly grinchy. For fuck sake, he didn't even dislike Christmas all that much. He just had a case of the sads from being lonely all the time
It was odd in that it often felt both rushed and like it was stalling for time. I didn't really like the pacing of this one.
The animation was quite nice, and the visuals were all good.
All the newer songs and original to the movie music sucked ass and took me right out of the movie.
I will say that the one thing I like in this version over the live action version is that there was no stupid romantic sup-plot and Cindy Lou Hoo was pretty cool in this version. In most other regards I actually prefer the live action movie over this version. Which is saying quite a bit. It isn't that this new movie is bad, just kind of bland.
Of course the original animated special is better then both of them IMO but it wasn't feature length so whatever.

Nutcracker had pretty colors but wasn't too bright. Lots of dark scenes. Music was pretty good and quite relaxing. Was a great nap, would sleep through again.

IIRC the director was going through a tough time when he made the movie. I don't think he really clarified the meaning of the movie (IIRCG he even said there was no real meaning), but there are tons of symbols throughout the movie (judeo-christian and otherwise)… not to spoil anything, but listen to the words of the boy very closely(yes, he may be an edgelord) and then pay very close attention to scenery at the end. I watched it subbed originally.

I saw Ralph too and for me it was boring, emoji-lite movie, pretty much everything reversed of what you said about it
..at times you get the sense it’s more of a wild collage instead of a perfect puzzle. From scene to scene, things are regularly linked in ways that feel forced or without proper motivation, and the result is a narrative that, at times, feels very disjointed and uneven.

…10 different versions of the film were screened internally before the final one was settled on. The final film consists of 45 sequences, which were selected out of 153 sequences that were created. And to get to those 153 sequences, 7,883 versions of those sequences were considered, made up of 283,839 total storyboards.

Watched Fist of Legend and currently watching Return of the Fist Of Legend an I had to stop the movie and google this bullshit propaganda going on in this movie.
Movie Chinese combatants in WWI in France in direct combat roles. I called total bullshit, paused the movie and looked it up. Yeah, this is just Chines propaganda and totally bullshit that isn't even remotely true. At most all the Chinese did in France during WWI was act as super cheap laborers that had nothing to do with combat and were far removed from front line combat. But the real shame is this one doesn't have Jet Lee in it like the first one.

There's nowhere to go from here. Spoilers ahead: they killed the alien race that created humans, revealed who designed the Aliens, changed the whole focus of the ALIEN franchise to be about evil androids and effectively driven the whole plot into a corner.

I think they're done. I read it was a financial disappointment so on top of being a mediocre movie people don't even care about it anymore. The first Alien is one of my favorite movies ever but it's hard to make sequels where you have to reveal stuff for plot development. One of the most appealing things about the first movie is the unknown. Now we know everything and it sucks.

I found it quite tedious and boring myself. Pretty much the only thing on my mind while I was watching it was, "Man, this would be so much better if it would just drop the whole father/daughter thing, along with the military PTSD bullshit and, instead, simply be about a solitary guy who's disgusted with society and greatly dislikes other people".

I'm also quite tired of how the main character in these types of movies always seems to have some ridiculous past trauma which almost entirely informs their "abnormal behavior", thereby serving as nothing more than pandering to John Q. public, all to engender some worthless sense of "understanding" on their part. Perfect example of this would be Rust Cohle from True Detective. A wonderfully pessimistic character torn asunder by the show writer's nauseating need to give him some "tragic past", which serves as nothing more than a lame cover for the cold hard truth he spits out, since all the normos in the audience watching can just as easily dismiss it all since, "The only reason he thinks such dark & depressing things is because his kid got run over! That's all just his trauma talking!". Wouldn't want anyone to actually be challenged or have to think about such ideas. Nope they're always just the product of some stupid past crap, that completely undercuts the philosophy/beliefs of the protagonist, marking them as being unreliably sad and therefore not in their "right mind".

Without such pandering, it'd just be too unpalatable for the masses to swallow that somebody, in the case of Leave No Trace, could live that way and be perfectly content in doing so, with no skeletons in their closet "haunting them". As a result, I guarantee that we'll probably never have a film about the North Pond Hermit. Ole Christopher Knight would almost certainly make a normo's head explode in confusion/anger.

It actually made me laugh, if I'm being honest. Especially at the end, with that stupid clicking noise they made to each other, as they said their final goodbyes. Came off as super cringy and I couldn't help, but roll my eyes and chuckle as it happened.

I have watched "9". It was okay, but not worth watching.

Why?

It's very cliched.

The main character, 9, is a newcomer to a group trying to survive in a post-apocolyptic world. 9 is introduced by being saved by a member of this group. They're also all the same group or race of "people". 9 challenges the leader to exploration and in trying to save 2, who was kidnapped by robotic monster. This is all cliched already, but when they find 2, they meet 7, a badass who manages to save them from the beast. 7, cliched enough, is voiced by a female. I actually called it before "she" even talked. Next, they turn on the robotic monster that caused this, cue scientist having a grand vision of revolution of modern technology and a revolution of the ages. A time where his invention changes the world forever. Easy enough. Then, they manage to destroy the factory where the monster lives, gets chased, figure out that the souls are absorbed into the monster, 9 finds out a way to take back the souls that it took from their group, they release the souls, and then "they're finally free now", and it rains.

5 is the leader(?) of the group, and his character is just shallow. He's there to resist 9, and supposedly knows a lot, but we never get to know. He makes so many bad calls, never really takes any risks until now, and just lets 9 take his leadership from him. For example, he doesn't just straight up banish 9 and his accomplice whose name I can't remember. that release the monster. In fact, no punishment is given to him for literally dooming them all, destroying their hideout, and, not even rescuing 2, who was old and to scout to be killed as well as being used to unleash the beast.

The leader's lackey is a big guy named… I don't know. I never really learned them. He's big, dumb, and is useless. He tries to be the badass 7 was, but instead, he doesn't harm any single robotic creation at all. On guard duty, at the new base, he's immediately captured by the snake via hypnotism. His only purpose is in the beginning of the movie where he's used as an arm to intimidate 9. He's then just killed off after the new base is settled. He's only used in one or two instances. One is during the initial meeting with the group, at the original base, and two is when they're caught coming back to the base and TELL the leader where they are and what they were doing, instead of lying. They literally had a good alibi. It's a REALLY big church. It's totally possible to say they were still there. Or anything, really.

The ending was super easy to figure out, but the lead to it was so weird. The lead was that the scientist split his soul into these creations of his, and they're all the same person. However, he ALSO said that he gave the machine his intellect, but it HAD no soul. Instead of them getting captured and re-uniting into the machine to give it a soul, they release the souls in the machine, and then release the souls of their fallen bretheren into the sky. It was weird, but it made sense, since others were lost before 9 went into the group. Still, what an incredibly stale ending. It's like every other movie where the end where the evil is defeated and now, they must rebuild. It feels like it's just black and white with no nuance or gray to fool the viewer into a new and completely different ending. They chose this instead of killing the thing. Your friends are legit dead, and I doubt killing the thing would have resulted in something different. It's not like the souls will be trapped in there forever, right? Not much is actually explained about the lore except for the war that caused it, the robot vs man rebellion, the scientist's reasoning, etc. There's not much information about what could be done with the fractured soul, what happens inside the machine to those souls, the true ramifications of killing the machine, where the souls go in the sky, what happens to souls if their bodies are destroyed (same thing?), etc.

Overall, a movie that's just like any other movie of its type. I don't recommend it. Nothing even wizardly about it too.

And yet you created quite a long post about it. I saw it when at release date. I was a teenager back in 2009 and saw it from a perspective of someone who would be entertained by "transformers" movies; a kid in other words. Some time ago I wondered for the second time if i should re-watch it. I have similar opinion to yours. Animation and post-apocalyptic setting is the only cool thing about this movie.

I finished this four hours long chinese drama. One of the most depressing movies I watched recently, but at the same time it felt kinda comfy, just watching the long shots of the fucked up world the main characters live in, reminded me of the dirty and hopeless eastern europe as I remember it from my childhood. There are at least three suicides through the movie, which is pretty solid, if we take into consideration the fact that the movie director killed himself after finishing his debut. I am not sure if I understood the message of the movie, or even if there was one, but I definitely liked the overall theme. Given the slow nature of the movie, I'd recommend watching it one hour at a time.

I'm glad we have similar tastes, I guess. I feel like my explanation of the movie actually goes towards every movie, and is an explanation of the tropes to look out for in these movies. By the time I saw the "female" doll thing, I should have stopped. Still, the ending was really promising with what it could have done.

Still, the movie felt really short and the story was rushing along. I truly didn't feel like they shouldn't have killed the big machine so quickly. They didn't, but it was killed immediately after the fake out.

So don't re-watch it if you have or haven't already. Though, it could count as entertainment to find out the plot of the movie and how it'll end before it actually ends. It's a challenge too.

really high expectations for Glass

Shyamalan also made The Visit, really great horror movie, managed to creep the fuck out of me with very minimal effects and budget
Very few whorish jumpscares, the movie is really focused on psychological horror and manages to wrench out some quality spooks from something as benign as "old people"
Great acting, child actors are surprisingly not too grating (the chadlet is cringey, but supposed to be, and well done)

Was expecting a typical revenge movie, but it was a comedy. And then it went from a comedy to a gritty thriller. The director who made this is friends with the director who made Green Room and Blue Ruin (also an actor in them too) so I guess that's not surprising. Overall, I liked it.

watched this seven and a half hour film in one sitting. it's melancholia (2008) directed by lav diaz. i actually wasn't bored at any point, just fidgety from focusing on one thing for an extended period of time. if you like slow cinema, i recommend this. the cinematography seemed a bit amateur at first, especially because i haven't seen any other diaz movies or many /good/ black&white digital films, and the audio is particularly terrible in the first two and a half hours (i think the whole movie used the internal camera mic) but i'm pretty sure it's done purposely, maybe not to the extent that it is but still so, because of how the narrative is set up.

Watched Glass and Enter the Spidervers at the cinema.

I feel a bit conflicted about Glass. It has quite a few problems and isn't as good as the two films that came before (Unbreakable and Split) but it was still a reasonably enjoyable movie if taken for what it was. Still the ending was a bit anti-climactic (probably spelled that wrong but whatever) and there are a lot of bad habits of M.Night in this film that I had hoped he had gotten over.
It also kind of felt like a set up to a tv show or something that I doubt will ever happen.

Spiderman was a visual feast and overall the whole thing felt like a love letter to modern spiderman comic fans. If only the actual comics themselves were this good. It is a very unique and stylish film with a pretty good story. I recommend it to any spiderman or animation fan. You are in for a treat.

Its kind of a mix between a horror movie and an adventure one, like Indiana Jones mixed with REC. A bunch of normgroids go to the Paris catacombs and end up crossing the gates of hell.
Its one of those movies that are filmed from the pov of a someone holding a camera, but its less annoying that other found footage movies.

Since I have been sort of seeing dolls and sex robots brought up a lot in some of the content I watch and read (youtube and blogs) I desided to give the movie Cherry 2000 a watch.
Boy oh boy is it not a good movie, but still entertaining. I will say it is refreshing to have a movie where the robots don't turn out to go full "Destroy all humans" like almost every single film western film that touches on the topic of advanced humanoid robots. Overall it was just a dumb action flick with some satire and predictions that were closer then the makers probably suspected (most of it was still wrong though, lol). I also found it odd how much the movie teased nudity but never actually full on had any actual nudity. If it wasn't for some of the violent scenes it would probably be a pg-13 film nowadays.

Really enjoyed Upgrade(2018). By the saw movie guy, low budget well done film with a few neat tricks to it. The fight scenes were a lot of fun and the twist that the chip in his neck was an AI that wanted to be human so it caused all the events in the movie was worth it. The whole film kind of felt a bit disjointed until that reveal, so I loved that feeling. Plus the guy in it becomes suicidal and he never recovers from that, and it's never dealt with in the movie. I thought that was fairly interesting.

Interestingly, I watched Zulawski's on the silver globe
recently and it also touched on this idea. Some very good films they made behind the Iron curtain. Makes one wonder if political censorship can be less of a hindrance to art than profit-factor censorship.

Depends on what you are doing and how often. For example if they are comcast and you torrent a lot then a vpn is a good idea to get a VPN because they will illegally slow your shit down or cut your connection if you use the net how they don't like. Other companies like verizon don't really give a shit and you can ignore any warnings, not that they give any. I am assuming you live in a area where you only have one or two options? You can also avoid certain activity that they sniff for or mess with the data, but that isn't ideal.
I honestly stream almost everything in such a way where they can't complain about what I am doing without admitting they are violating the law. If I apsolutly needed to torrent a lot then I would seriously consiter a VPN. Because it ain't being used for major security reasons or to hide major criminal activity or something I would prioritize which ever one is the fastest for your area. Even relatively weak VPN will do the job and their ain't shit your ISP can nor should do about it.

I wouldn't say a big fan, no.

Reviews are useless for this film because feminist have desided to be offended by the movie for some dumbass reason or another, so that is another reason why I have to see it for myself to know if it is yet another bad western adaptation of a Japaneses property or if it is something special.

He didn't really act all that well during The boating scene, where he was supposed to pretend to drown and struggle, but everything else is okay. I say that because it really didn't feel like he was struggling, and his position after his boat flipped over isn't good for drowning anyways. He was flipped on his back, so I never really thought, "oh, this guy's going to spit or cough up water" or something like that.

On his acting in the entire movie, his paranoia about being followed, his melancholy, his confusion, and everything related to him progressively finding out he's on a tv show is brilliant. The man knows how to act these feelings, and I never saw him as Jim Carrie, but as the character himself. His freakouts with his wife at the show were really great and felt mostly real. I don't think he used enough force when pushing her and controlling his wife's movements. His stance though, when threatening or prodding his wife to cut him up was a true stance of insanity and paranoia.

The ending is great to me. I've not been so interested in a film's ending and characters for a long while now. Everything, in my opinion, was sizzling, and finally, the movie was drawn to its conclusion. He progressively found out more and more about the truth, had real emotions towards things, talked to his friend about it, finally BROKE down, leaving him to do something he never could have done, go over a bridge with water, which he's afraid of, and finally, break out if site, go boating on the ocean, which he was always afraid of, and finally confront reality and decide to live it.

**His ultimatum to live in the world or pursue the real one was the final turning point, and to me, in a television series, especially one that has been going on for 30 years, I would say his breakdown and break out leading to him finally leaving his fantasy world would be the greatest ending in television in all of human history. I'm amazed the guards watching wanted to watch something else. They've seen the greatest ending in television history. The audience knew him from when he was born all the way up to his married life, and finally, the man figures out what's going on and gives the final "in case I don't see ya, good afternoon good evening and goodnight!"

I kind of want to talk about the show as well. The show show. There were a few things that just never made sense or just the lying was bad. The first thing I can think of is elevator scene. It makes sense to hide it, but they just didn't seem prepared to deal with lying, and every time they're caught in this situation, they just forcefully move people away. The previous love interest that wasn't planned also was dragged away like the others, but really, truly, the "father" did an EXCELLENT job portraying her as crazy. What a beast of an actor. I think he did everything right in that sense. Otherwise, things never seemed planned for the tv show. If he were spontaneous, they would obviously try to stop him, but he caught hold of that easily. This isn't a criticism of the film itself, but I thought it was pretty interesting to think the TV show wasn't prepared for these things. They've been doing this for 30 years already too.

I recommend this movie. I can't really explain how great it is.

Saw Spiderverse. The best part of the movie is definitely the animation. The story itself was pretty run of the mill and predictable, but it's a pretty fun movie for what it is.

It's indeed a great movie. People made fun of Jim Carrey for so obviously trying to break into "serious" roles but he did a very good job. It would have been easy to be very melodramatic about it but he makes Truman an innocent guy who just wants to, well, find a 'true man' in himself and escape his little world.

The writing is so tight and I think it's one of those rare movies that can reward anyone. Kids can watch it and be amused by the story and Carrey's silliness, teens/young adults can watch it and sympathize with his desire to "get out there" in the world, and older/more serious viewers can appreciate the philosophical aspect and even the Eden parallels the movie poses.

You mentioned the OST; it's really gorgeous. Using Kilar at the end ties the whole movie up in a neat little bow.

Watched the Antman sequel last week, it wasn't bad but the great part was mid-credits when the Pym family was sending him on a quick trip back into the quantum level and their walkie-talkie cuts out.

He's left floating there all like "uh hellooooo, this isn't funny." The camera flips back to the Pyms, and there's a lot of black specks floating down to the ground where they were standing that made you THINK it was a plain old swarm of ants.

I watched The Departed last night (spoilers ahead). It was alright. The beginning of the film was very rushed, it felt like it was flinging all these different characters and their arcs into your lap as soon as possible so it could rush headlong into the actual story. I liked the tension and DiCaprio's character, who I related with a little in regards to not having much of an identity.

The film is a little top heavy, as it kills off most of the main characters within a 20-30 minute timespan. The pacing was strange, as if they tried to start and end it as quickly as possible with this slow-roasting bog of character development inbetween. I laughed at the rat at the end.

It had been so long since I last watched something I almost forgot how it's like to experience a film.
Gave a chance to The Professor and the Madman because they were supposedly going to talk about the Oxford Dictionary. Spoilers; they don't. Not really. I kinda liked the buildup for the two main characters but the second half is such a mess. Besides, if you put all the scenes where they actually talk about the process of putting a dictionary together you end up with perhaps 5 minutes of screen time. Quite a letdown. Not a bad film but I felt cheated a bit. I suppose it's my own fault.

I finally watched Mad Max 1 for the first time on a whim. I never really knew much about the series, and had admittedly only seen Fury Road previously so I was quite surprised by how restrained and pre-apocalyptic this first entry in the series was.

I enjoyed this a lot, though I still do have some trouble fully getting into films from this era. The great Mel Gibson film 'Payback' was based on this classic. Also, in my research I uncovered a sort of wizardly piece of trivia: Co-star Angie Dickinson had an aspie daughter who committed suicide via exit bag.
>Point Blank is a 1967 American neo-noir crime film directed by John Boorman, starring Lee Marvin, co-starring Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn and Carroll O'Connor, and adapted from the 1963 crime noir pulp novel The Hunter by Donald E. Westlake, writing as Richard Stark.

>Point Blank combines elements of film noir with stylistic touches of the European nouvelle vague. The film features a fractured time-line, disconcerting narrative rhythms (long, slow passages contrasted with sudden outbursts of violence) and a carefully calculated use of film space (stylized compositions of concrete riverbeds, sweeping bridges, empty prison cells).

I watched Detective Pikachu.

Not a good detective movie.
Not a good Pokemon movie.
Not a good action movie.
Not an ounce of originality in any aspect of direction.
Predictable plot twists and outcomes.

These would all be fine if it was a children's film, but this was targeted at those who were children some 20 years back when Pokemon was big in the west. The writing is vulgar, chocked full of innuendo that we've all heard elsewhere before, and it feels as if the writers are constantly taking sarcastic jabs at aspects of the Pokemon universe that they weren't able to easily adapt believably to their grungry orange-and-blue American blockbuster. Many corners were cut in regards to how much research on Pokemon the writers and designers had to do. In fact I think less then 15 Pokemon get any notable camera time despite this being the "big city where all the Pokemon live happily together". CG was crummy too, which is real bad because the whole movie is cg.

I expected "Mediocre film that's good for being a cheesy nostalgia trip" but it was beyond redemption.

should /I watch transformers 4 and 5? the first three flicks were so dumb I don't even remember the plots at all, and that's coming from someone with a powerful long term memory

I saw that meth-addict jew is no longer the lead character, so I'm a little hopeful, I don't want to waste my time

Got around to watching Annihilation.
It was ok, not great but not bad. A little slow and really tested my suspension of disbelief at times, but it was ok.

Any Woody Allen fan here?

Just got into his work and I'm really excited to see his next movies. Manhattan (1979) was really great and surpassed my expectations. Reminded me of Taxi Driver.

I've heard wonderful things about him.

Both me and my mom really dislike most of his work. Her mostly because of the scandals he was involved in; me because I find his movies a chore to sit through. And no, before you start insulting me for brutish taste, I can enjoy many high brow films, and even well made (or not so well made) art films, but I just don't like his personal style, vision, and acting. I find it mostly boring. My sister likes some of his stuff, says she likes the way he writes dialog or something.

What got me interested in his work was this comment made by an Anonymous:

"His movies are deeply egotistical and narcissistic, and I resonate with that. It's not that his movies are about something, or some event, like Kurosawa's movies are. It's not like his movies are about things and events as much as the person, the mind. In his movies he tries to portray the mind and the character of the director himself. I recommend watching Stardust Memories to understand what I'm saying. I mean that his movies are an exploration of the mind rather than events and that's what I like the most.

I also like that it's always about real life rather than fucking Star Wars or some shit. All the fiction I read now is about real life. I couldn't care less about fictional worlds and fantasy middle-ages or starships or whatever. I do like speculation about the future though.

Also, as I grow older I resonate more and more with the characters in his movie. In Stardust Memories he mentions Valium, amphetamine, anti-depressants and sleeping pills. Plus, as I'm writing a book, I've thoroughly enjoyed those parts where he talks about art and does inception-like things (which I think about a lot). It's great."

piece of shit of a movie, really tired of this artsy type of films. Not enjoyable and no mature thoughts put into it.

it's very enjoyable if you appreciate the deadpan humour and commentary on modern romantic relationships, but it's not a film for everyone
