The last movie thread has reached the bump limit.
Nobody wore a cape. I think maybe doctor strange did for a second at the boss fight (not sure), but that was it.
There's nothing "metal" about war you sick person.
I saw this one something like 11 years ago. It was on Google Video in full back then, and I still remember some of the fucking gut punches this movie gives you. This is "highly recommend" #2.
You seem pretty unfalmilar with metal.
War is quite a common subject of metal, including the grisly details and horrifying nature of it. Metal doesn't look away from the darkness and depravity of the human condition.
Saging since posting more about music then movies.
I was out and about today and decided I didn't want to go home. I rarely go to the theatre, but for the first time in a decade I had gone to see SpiderVerse (wasn't impressed) back in January because I was gifted a movie gift card, and I enjoyed the experience, so I decided I would do that again.
I remembered seeing this poster for this movie outdoors, and I had found out that it was a Quentin Tarantino movie from flicking through 4ch/tv/ sometime a week or three ago - he's apparently a big deal over there. I think his movies are alright. So I decided I want to see it.
The movie itself, wasn't great. I didn't dislike it but it was forgettable; nothing really happens and there's nothing to take away from it. The plot was uninteresting and generally a bit confusing; I would maybe go as far as to say, "poorly written". The movie drags in the first half and only picks up, a bit, toward the end. O actually hoped and slighty expected that the ending scene was the half-way point, despite the fact that the movie was already 2 hours in (actually I think it had a 3 hour runtime).
I thought the oppurtunity to show succubi ass-shots was and over-used, excessive. The Bruce Lee scene wasn't a huge deal, nor very funny. The humor was crass, easy, predictable, boring ("normie"). I maybe smiled at the not-so-subtle foot-fetishing.
Well, for the good part I liked the performances of Brad and Leo; the general aesthetic was cool though I don't personally romanticize the 1960 or 70 ( or 80/90/etc.) era and found the presentation of it so loudy assterted as to be almost obnoxious. There were a couple cool action scenes.
A succubus wrote the story. Which was a big surprise to me.
It's a controversial picture based on an edgy book that tells a tale of a middle-aged dude falling in love with a loli. I don't understand what's so complicated to you. It's pretty straightforward. It's showing pedophilia in a more moderate light. Where the pedophile is not portrayed like some child-rapist demon who only cares about his own pleasure. Plus the MC is not exclusively pedo, he just kinda falls in love with the loli. That's literally it. The ending is just explaining that it's unsustainable due to society's view on the matter.
There is a fuck ton more going on in that movie then that.
broadcast news (1987)
tried watching it to see what a younger william hurt was like
I got 39 minutes in until the sheer girlishness of the writing started giving me an actual headache, the characters were so immature and stupid it was like they teenagers at their first job instead of grown ass adults and seasoned media professionals, especially the lead yenta whose incessant freaking piehole still rings through my ears hours after deleting it
I need to start watching trailers before jumping into things
watch Body Heat if you want to see a young William Hurt
Just saw it today and I gotta agree with you. Though depending on how old you are a lot of the movie will just fly right over your head as it did mine. Basically the whole movie is setting up for the charles manson murders, but as someone who wasn't alive when those occurred and never cared about them much, I had no idea.
no, the name tells me all I need to know
I watched it yesterday and thought it was good, it definitely was kind of "nothing happened" but I enjoyed having Leo and Brad Pitt working together, they can be really funny. I also digged the romanticized version of hollywood Tarantino created. In any case it didn't bore me through 2 hours and half which is something.>>49302
yeah the movie clearly plays with the fact that the manson murders should happen at any time, but then blueballs you by going all alternative history
watched event horizon a few days ago. i read that a whole bunch of shit was removed, and it sure felt like it. the entire movie felt unfinished at every point. the visuals were cool but there wasn't enough chaos. it's a pretty old movie so i will forgive it.
I watched Fahrenheit 11/9
At first it was just solid butthurt that I found somewhat amusing, but 30 minutes in the film lost all focus and devolved into a general propaganda piece that didn't even try to hide how it was playing fast and loose with the truth. Most of the sections only were linked by the strong level of trump derangement syndrome. It wasn't as profeonal as Moore's other works and it also wasn't as entertaining. A hour in I was just bored and mildly annoyed but there was a full hour left. It turned into a irritating slog to try and get through.
Even if you like the other work from Michal Moore I would really recommend skipping this one.
I expected better from Park Chan-Wook, The Handmaiden was too exploitative for my taste.
He probably lost his way after directing Stoker.
That's technically true of virtually every film which centers around human characters.
Watch "Trial on the road" (1971) then.
Some very wizard movie got an English subs too.
i can see why ud be disapointed given its title
watched aquaman tonight
self-proclaimed "halfbreed" MC saves the day against blond bad guy who spouts off about his "pureblood"
waste of time hebrew propaganda
That was your takeaway from the movie?
Then again I didn't even watch it because I never liked aquaman in any incarnation.
No. Because I don't use that moronic fake word.
That is what I took away from the movie.
I thought the "Individual merit is more important than lineage. Go social mobility." sentiment is as old as the French revolution, or is the idea to overthrow monarchy a jewish plot too?
No, it's not stop being a contrarian idiot
Shitchan's /tv/ generally have shit taste and don't know what the fuck they are talking about most of the time.
i just marathoned a bunch of friday the 13th movies.
here's my tier list so far.
VI > V > IV > II > I > VIII > VII > III > IX
i couldn't even finish IX. it was so fucking bad i don't know if i want to. and i'm not going to watch X and the spin-offs until i finish it. i'll post an updated ranking list when i'm done. it might be a week or so. IX is awful awful awful.
VI, V and IV were so fucking good that they're nearly tied with each other. i honestly only put VI above V just purely because the alice cooper credits song was so fitting of the era and such cheezy goodness that it elevated it.
i think IV is the best true to the formula 13th movie. most of the films that try to be something different and gimmicky end up sacrificing the formula and becoming different movies completely. like i really loved VI and V a lot but they don't have the retarded teenagers at a summer camp at all, jason goes to manhattan kills all the retarded teens really early on and then you're left with a weird and pointless character examination of these codependent relationships. and so on.
so what im trying to say here is IV is the perfect combination of plot and world building and other things going on without sacrificing what an audience expects to see when they see a friday the 13th movie, which is retards being retards and then getting murdered. i think IV is the best film if you're judging it overall as an intellectual property, it's the best representation of the product by a lot. but V and VI have a lot more happening narratively, and i'm a narrative guy.
writing this post actually motivated me to finish it.
IX just got worse and worse. they have a The Thing moment where a little tentacle monster climbs out of jason's chest and hides in the rafters. it was fucking pathetic.
all the slow-motion shots, just fucking pathetic cinematography, too. i hated jason XI a lot. it's a wayyy worse movie than III. i hated III too but i never wanted to stop watching it or fast forward through any of it. >>49759
i'm never ever taking the advice of a board who voted pulp fiction as the best film of all time.
typo, meant to say jason IX. there is no jason XI unfortunately. i don't think they're every making another one.
For me it is
5. V and VII tied
6. Freddy vs Jason
8. Jason X
IX /Jason goes to hell/ isn't a bad horror movie but it is definitely not a Friday the 13th movie.
The most underrated ones in the series are III, V and VII. So criminally underrated movies that it hurts. /Especially VII, Carrie vs Jason, what is there to dislike people?!/ Also, watch Freddy vs Jason - that one is really delicious. Jason X is more of a comedy horror but I've found it funny.
Overall, Friday the 13th is one of my favorite horror movie franchise. Most of the movies are above average quality in it.
Crap, I forgot about the remake.
9. Jason X
i really want to hear why III is your #1. its characters were the most obnoxious in the series, the motorcycle gang characters went nowhere and did nothing. it was just a super boring slow burn that introduced nothing new about jason or his lore.
ironically i think that last succubus jason fight in III is the best one in the whole series, and i really liked the final shot of her being escorted to a police car where she's wigging the fuck out. but those few good moments can't salvage it imo.
i liked II better than I. they were close calls. what made II the definitive victor was the wheelchair kill and using jason's mom's sweater against him. the sweater thing was extremely ingenious and it's the only time in the whole series that jason is humanized.
jason vs carrie was wasted potential. the psychic fight was too cheap and poorly shot.
friday the 13ths formula causes a lot of problems narratively. you can't really have any complete character arcs or have plots go anywhere much because jason has to kill everyone. the only way you can have a plot play out to completion is to have the character(s) someway directly associated with jason. this is i think a big reason why everyone including me considers VI the absolute best film. every single named character's motivation in VI is in some way tied to jason.
this is to say that the whole plot with carrie's psychiatrist and mom abusing her was doomed to fail from the start. there was sooooo much build up and characterization with these three that was all literally for nothing. and i just didn't care about any of them at all to start with.
