The last movie thread has reached the bump limit.
It must be said upfront that these two great movies I'm recommending can't rightly be called 'wizardly,' but they still resonated deeply with me in some respects.
Both films follow retired people living quiet, somewhat reclusive lives. As a longtime hikki whose life sort of resembles that of a retiree, it was nice to see this kind of existence portrayed well on film. Beyond that, both films have wonderful, bleak, and interesting plots.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sense_of_an_Ending_(film)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/45_Years

Dark city was a cool movie, never heard of anyone else wating that.
Heres a classic
I had borrowed a box set years ago. I liked his movies
Is it related to the MK character?
Baraka is "blessing" in Swahili; it's a weird coincidence.
I think I got trolled into watching pedo bait
I watched the Italian film Maladolescenza (think it translates to something similar to puppy love or something). The story was weak, the cinematography was mediocre, the audio was just plain bad including out of sync adr, and the acting was subpar at best.
So you might be wondering why it was recommended to me, well it has a bunch of underage "attractive" youths run around nude.
I was not amused.
Must watch foreign film my ass.
I finally watched Marnie. I really love Hitchcock movies but some aren't as good as others and I had a bad feeling about this one as well…Boy, how wrong I was! What a lovely masterpiece! As the saying goes "they simply don't make them like this anymore". So classy, so elegant. Felt so refreshing to watch a good movie after all the trash I've seen recently.
Where should I start? The music, it is absolutely wonderful, Herrmann didn't disappoint me this time either.
Next, the characters. It makes me laugh that they advertised this as "suspenseful sex mystery" when the whole movie has the exact opposite, "anti-sexual" atmosphere for a lack of better term. It is because the title character/heroine is basically a witch or at least has strong wizardly qualities. She hates men and sexuality, says numerous times that she just wants to be alone and spends most of her free time around horses. Hell, Sean Connery's character has to semi-rape her during their honeymoon because she refuses to have sex AND after that she tries to drown herself because she despises sexuality so much. One of the most sympathetic heroines I've seen in a movie, ever. This is a strong point of the movie: all characters are decent and likeable, even the succubus who is supposed to be Marnie's rival isn't a complete bitch. There are no villains in this story, the true battle takes place in the soul and mind of Marnie. Rutland - Connery - is a quite entertaining hero too.
Third, about the plot. It isn't anything mind-blowing but gets the job done. Marnie is one of those movies where the characters and the atmosphere are more important than the story itself.
All in all, I enjoyed it greatly. The acting at some places may seem strange but old movies usually have this, guess what they defined as good acting in the past differs from today's standards. Tension and tranquility mix well and give this masterpiece a unique atmosphere. It's rare for me to get emotionally worked up over a movie but this one succeeded, mainly because I found it easy to relate to the heroine and I liked all of the characters. One of my favorites from Hitchcock and I think one of my favorite movies generally, regardless of what the critics think/thought. Got the novel too, I will give it a try later.
Funny, 3 years ago I saw another Hitchcock movie titled "The Wrong Man" based on a true story about a man framed for a crime.
It starred Henry Fonda and was one of the main movies which inspired Scorcese to make "Taxi Driver", I can say that. (it's not good but not bad neither)
I only saw parts of that movie on TV. Found it boring and to be one of the weaker Hitchcock works. Still, I want to watch the full movie before I judge it.
Anyway, I recommend that you check out Stage Fright, Rope and Vertigo for starters if you are new to Hitchcock.
K, I'll see which one is more accessible (I lucked out on The Wrong Man)
Not gay but Sean Connery in his prime is truly a stunning man.
Very handsome and charismatic.
You don't see actors or people of that stature anymore.
Very similar to Baraka is the Koyaanisqatsi series.
1 and 2 is good but the third one sucks shit.
This is part of the reason why I want to get into old movies more. The actresses and actors were really something else back then, they had style, grace and charisma.
And people can say what they want about how hypocrite society was back then and stuff but at least they knew how to make masterpieces and good movies.
By the way, I've just learned that apparently Hitchcock wanted to get it on with Tippi Hedren and was so infuriated because she kept rejecting him that he blocked her from starring in other big hit movies through his influence. Now I'm far from being a white knight but man…that was just so dirty from Hitchcock. What the hell.
I just came from being invited to see Far From Home.
At first I liked it cos they fixed everything I hated about the first one (especially Mary Jane) and there's one scene in particular which was extremely inspired involving Mysterio and Peter Parker within the rising action.
But in terms of someone who was betrayed by an over-rich cunt involving holograms, it hit me too close to home.
But hey, at least the crown makes it. XP
And now I saw 2019's The Lion King…if style was copyrighted then I'm pretty sure Peter Jackson'd be pressin' some charges.
But other than that, meh.

You don't say…
I thought birds was alright, but I do agree it has serious pacing issues that throw a wet blanket on the whole movie.
It also feels so out of place when you look at the other works of the director, all mystery thriller with romance/noir elements and then here is something as absurd as birds attacking humans. The Birds feels like a black sheep among Hitchcock movies, at least to me. Wouldn't say it is a bad movie but rather feels like an experiment to me that didn't work out quite well.
I remember this one. Most of the male dolls died to save to female dolls.
You say that as if it served to the film's disadvantage.
There were only like two female dolls weren't there? Out of the nine.
This one was too ouch. The mother being burned alive, then discarded like trash amidst hundreds of other faceless victims. The coldness of the aunt towards the young kids despite their loss. The innocent ignorance of a child causing the death of his only remaining loved one, and the doctor who neglected to hear his story when he finally learned of his his errors, turning the child to crime. Then the abandon for all compassion from the guys cleaning the impoverished corpses out of the terminal, throwing away a young man's one and and possession and memory of anything good in his life before being discarded himself, joining the countless other faceless victims of war.
Didn't watch it expecting it to be so harsh and ended up shooken for a bit. The destruction one tiny firebomb can due to a jaded and hopeless nation. Pretty metal.
Purple Rose of Cairo is his best
I was going to go watch Toy Story 4…cause, you know, I'm a complete robot who will just watch anything that is a sequel regardless of the soul-wrenching history behind it.
Fortunately, I'd rather not be passionate about anything than be passionate about it in a way that isn't true to myself.
I still haven't got around to watching 3 yet.
Well if you're like me who grew up with succubi when Toy Story 2 came out and though Barbie needed a LOT more emotional development (I'm being serious) the 3rd movie was kinda worth the wait.
As far as David Fincher films go, this is some of his more chill works next to Benjamin Button.
Otherwise I'd recommend this film where Sean Penn isn't typecast for a change.
finally watched pirates of the caribbean….
this is what normies were going nuts over? :(
If by normies you mean children then yes. It is a high budget semi-decent pirate movie by Disney. Of course it was a massive hit with kids.
no, I mean grown ass adults
do you even live in america? they wouldn't stfu about it
I didn't really know too many adults that were all that into it when it was out.
Then again I didn't hang out with tons of normies at the time ether.
>>48983>Then again I didn't hang out with tons of normies at the time ether.
then again, normies wouldn't be hanging out with a toddler
Dude, are you even actually a wizard?
"He'd" better be.
If not, let's just say Pandora LeMarchand's box is in its rough draft..
Can you believe they are still shitting out those movies?
If they want to continue with it, the whole thing needs a high budget reboot by people who actually know what the fuck they are doing, instead of this low budget retardation that the franchise has devolved into.
If only we lived in a world where they gave a golden vomit about the source material.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8UGlMcXPI8
The latest one was 2017. I'm afraid to watch it and see how old and haggard the actors look now, while I'm also tempted to for the same reason.
no no no no no….goddamn it
you implied that I hung out with normies, so I implied that you were still in your crib (and probably were)
don't insult people
>>48995>are you even a wizard?>no no no no no….goddamn it
I had to turn off the third pirates of the caribbean flick, and I have never turned off a movie before. Never. Not even B-movies. I haven't seen anything this fucking unbelievably stupid since hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. How did they manage to make it even worse than that?
Oh my goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood it was so bad!
is there any horror movie you watched where you follow the villain around and not the norms?
Man bites dog comes to mind, though barely counts as a horror film.
August Underground is probably closer to what you are looking for, but is pretty shit.
Just remembered Maniac and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
There is also The Devils Rejects
(thinking some more)
Mr. Brooks, though that one is more suspense/thriller
Frailty was pretty good
I heard Killers is good but I haven't got around to watching it yet.
That is all I can think of at the moment.
Oh wait, there is also the movie Spike, which is a low budget horror romance movie, but I don't think that is what you are looking for.
if you think the third one is bad, try watching 4 and 5
i watched them all up to the one with the strong succubus protag, i don't remember much about it except for one line. she said something like, "because i'm a womyn" and then i shut it off
Thanks a lot, will check them out.
"On March 4, 2017, director Joachim Rønning stated that Dead Men was only the beginning of the final adventure, implying that it would not be the last film of the franchise, and that a sixth film could be released."
Because it's the same guy that believes in the Duluth Model of Violence. This means that if a succubus beats a man, or simply pretends he beat he, he goes to jail because of institutional "sexism." Bernie believes so strongly in that position that he went against his own views on guns to get the law passed.
He's another boomer who believes succubi will save the world, and defers to them when they dominate him on his campaign stage, as the world saw.
Trump believes that succubi are smarter than men, because in modern nuworld they are preferred.
The entire thing is a joke for peasants to be entertained by.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado
It was alright. Not quite as impactful as the first but still top notch for its genera.
No. I haven't seen all of his movies yet but Summer With Monika and Summer Interlude are both better than Strawberries.
alright wtf I just watched 4 and 5…..
why are people calling them bad?
I wouldn't say they are awful movies but Pirates 4 and 5 were very dull and lifeless movies that were mostly a retread of the previous ones
I enjoyed them. To me the world of pirates of the caribbean in 4 and 5 was balanced and more down to earth (for a fantasy world) like in the original film, unlike that cringy, extremely overwrought davy jones arc. The jokes and humor were genuinely funny to me. Barbossa was great. I didn't fall asleep. They were just plain fun movies. I think I'll even rerun them.
Well the last avengers movie turned out to be a disappointment. The way thanos went out was just plain anticlimactic. The producers resorting to ye olde "time travel fixes everything" cop-out for plot resolution. Ugh. And killing off you-know-who in order to set the stage for a successor flick with a female replacement really pisses me off. I followed the film series since 2008 for this shit? Just remind me why I don't pay to watch movies anymore.
If they end up following the comics then this is probably the end of good movies for the franchise as they are about to hit the really bad comics now.
Dark City was huge before the Matrix stole its thunder. Oldfags like me know of it
You got what you deserved.
Capeshit is cape shit. You knew what they were doing and you knew Stark and Cap's contracts ran out with this movie and both wanted to move on. >>49226
no one cared.
I didn't see anyone wearing a cape. I don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
Then you never watched the movie did you?
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
