Just want to say that I highly appreciate your posts and I agree with them 100% and I'm glad that at least one person here called out both of those other guys, and also me as well for agreeing with them, for all the horseshit that it is. You laid out all the points you wished to say and were exactly the sorts of things I wished I could've written or thought of saying myself. I personally just don't have the wherewithal for arguing or debating this sort of thing, especially when you have rule breaking shitposts like these >>53672 being made by an obvious troll/tourist/LARPer, which is why I just wanted to bail out of the thing altogether. At the same time, I can still see both sides of this topic and, I'll be honest, that I'm simply too depressed/lazy/stupid to really commit to thinking of something that'd actually be worth saying here. Still, I appreciate you providing a counter-argument to the whole, "NEETs/shut-ins/hermits are just lazy unimaginative leeches with no worthwhile experiences and this is why they can never create anything", bullshit, since I was too braindead to do so myself. This just isn't the sort of discussion I'm personally equipped to have at the moment, but, like you said, it'd be interesting to see it continued by others in some other thread, although I'd fear it'd just devolve into the usual ad-hominem shitposting which colors most threads on this site.
Pretty dumb premise, but I thought it was still okay, I guess. Like you said, definitely reminded me a lot of Cube in terms of the atmosphere and the claustrophobic setting and all that.
For me, the number one thing about it that just seemed really fucking dumb and basically distracted me the whole time was how apparently no one ever tried riding the platform back up so as to escape and would rather kill themselves or starve to death, instead. Just a couple comments thrown in like, "Yeah there are automated guns or guards which shoot anyone who tries that", or, "There are ravenous cannibals at the lower levels that will tear you apart before you can ride the platform back up", would've been enough to clear that aspect of the story up. As it stands, it's such a gaping hole in believability that it pretty much just left this whole thing feeling like a half-baked movie with a poorly thought out scenario/story that falls apart the moment you actually think about it, leaving the story as nothing more than an empty vehicle to beat you over the head with its left-leaning social commentary.
>Commie bullshit propaganda
I'd consider myself to be a commie/socialist to some extent, but even I found the lack of subtlety in that stuff to be kind of annoying/distracting and that, as I said, the premise just seemed to be designed solely for the purpose of conveying the social satire, without any of that premise actually making any sense within the context of the story.
Another thing I forgot to mention, but due to the high speed of the platform as it returns to the top wouldn't that leave, the little succubus who rides it up to the top at the end as nothing more than a gorey pancake plastered against the ceiling? Funny how the movie ends literally right before that can happen. Maybe it slows down just before the top, but all that prior speed still seems like it'd be enough to make her a pancake, frankly.
That looks right up my alley. I got to check it out.
What a waste of two hours, a spaceman with daddy issues, thanks for that
I dunno much about capeshit, but just one look at this picture is enough for me.
I'm constantly trying to find emmersive space fantasy, but can only come up with hollyshit braintrash
Watched Ad Astra,
Watch this unnameable trash, as reviewed already
The closest things that were good were Solaris, Gattica, 2001, some meme ones like Interstaller, SW and such.
Movies just aren't very good for that cause they need a lot of world building and movies only have 2-3 hours max to tell you things.
Seen it in the cinema.
I agree that for a war film it was pretty good, even if it wasn't really my cup of tea.
i watched it based on wizzie's recommendation and it sucks ass
absolute cliché, bad acting, no emotions, shitty cgi…
Made me more cautious of wizzie's recomendations and that's sad because they're usually pretty good.
it's worth a watch for the setting alone. anything with robots and ai and their interactions with humans is interesting for me at least
I dropped it after like 1 minute because it was already shoving cringe 'nerd buzzwords' at me
Meh, whatever. It's not amazing or anything, but it's not like it's super horrible either. I'd say it's still worth a watch for wizards that are into sci-fi and are itching for something they haven't seen before in that genre. Sure, it was rough around the edges and, yeah, I agree that the acting could've been better, but the setting/premise was enough for me to find it an acceptable watch.
i think you're better off finding lists of movies and justt torrenting them yourself
that's the problem,the major torrent websites don't have the more obscure/indie foreign films
I hate to break it to you but nowhere will be able to regularly supply you with indie or obscure films. Hence why they are obscure. You're just gonna have to search multiple torrent sites. Also consider streaming sites, it will broaden your selection and some even let you download from them.
Good taste though, loved that movie.
>>54068>it's Lars von Tier making fun of himself and of his critiques
really? i thought it was LVT getting back at his critics (for banning him from Cannes)>>54070
QxR is an encoding group that does both normie films and art/indie films as well. They upload at -> 1337x(dot)to/user/QxR/
If they don't have something I am looking for, I go to rarbg.to or rutracker
That gives me a 404.
make sure you are also adding the last forward slash. the website gives a 404 otherwise
it works in both ways,the scene where he gives the monologue about the shadow of a serial killer felt to me like Lars reflecting on his own art in a sense that the urge to make movies his way grows until it reaches its ultimate density when he's under the light (his movies feed off of scandals and controversial press) then he moves to the project
but the presence of the Verge picking holes in that analogy is Lars making fun of his own art (thanks for the website recommendation)
Really enjoy the watchmen. 10/10
I am trying to imagine myself working with Quentin Tarantino and the image that comes to mind is me sneaking off with pulp fiction dailies and using them as toilet paper. For the good of mankind.
If you liked it then you should really check out the comic then. It will blow your mind.
Fun B movie. Glad I gave it a chance. >The Big Combo is a 1955 American film noir crime film directed by Joseph H. Lewis
Police Lt. Leonard Diamond is on a personal crusade to bring down the sadistic gangster Mr. Brown. He is also dangerously obsessed with Brown's girlfriend, the suicidal Susan Lowell. His main objective as a detective is to uncover what happened to a succubus called "Alicia" from the crime boss's past. >>52256
This was great, thanks.
I thought I wasn't into comedy films, but it turns out I just don't like modern comedies. This one from the '40s was really fun and witty. Veronica Lake was especially good. Before this I had just thought of her as a femme fatale, but she was very funny in this. She strikes just the right tone in every scene.>I Married a Witch is a 1942 American fantasy romantic comedy film, directed by René Clair, and starring Veronica Lake as a witch whose plan for revenge goes comically awry, with Fredric March as her foil. The film also features Robert Benchley, Susan Hayward and Cecil Kellaway.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Married_a_Witch>>54259
Thanks, I'll check them out.
I hate how Hollywang gender swaps everything these days. Just from the poster I can already see that they're trying to reanimate this franchise to star succubi. Hardly anything worth watching made by them anymore. It's all to appease shrill bitches and Chinese censors and grovel in front of minorities.
at least we still have foreign cinema…
