I mixed up Inside Men with New World here; New World was the one with an undercover agent. To be honest, I don't remember much about the plot of Inside Men—I watched it a while ago—but it is a very good movie. I mixed them up because they're both crime, and both of them have a bromance going on.

Today I saw Friend, from 2001. It's a story about four friends who take very different paths in life – or rather who traverse the singular paths laid out before them, separating and crossing again as the movie goes on. Maybe their tragedy could have been averted with enough willpower, but the circumstances were against them from the start. I think it's simply a tragic story that doesn't cast blame but shows the beauty of friendship and the sadness of the way it can be destroyed by the world. The way it was presented—showing only the crucial events of the meetings, leaving gaps of many years—was well-done, and I enjoyed the dialogue, the acting, and the visual style. It made me tear up at the end.

My favourite scene was one around the middle of the movie, where Jeong-suk has a conversation with Sang-taek on the balcony. The former, who's one of the two who turned out to be gangsters, explains what made him the person he is, after refusing the latter's offer to join his friend in the life of a gangster. Though it's in the subtext, what he's really doing is wistfully accepting the path that fate has laid out before him – telling his friend that they each will now live out their lives separately, the way that they want to; or, have to. Could he have gone down a different path? This question is an unsolvable mystery to us all, and the movie can only present it. In the opening credits, there's a line by Sang-taek, who is the infrequent narrator: "memories are floating in my mind, like islands scattered in the sea; now, I will row to these islands one after another." It speaks about the structure of the film,—but also, the actual loneliness of every man who lives in the world – whether he has friends or not, in the end, he's an island unto himself.

That's absolutely retarded. Try something from my rec list here >>57146 – pretty much the only movies there at all similar to Oldboy are other movies by its director. Try at least one movie each from the directors I listed at the bottom. As for contemporary Japanese cinema, I'm not as experienced with it, but Hirokazu Koreeda is one top-tier director I know. Shoplifters, I Wish, Still Walking, Nobody Knows, and Like Father Like Son are all great movies. They're a great, somewhat slice-of-life type of dramas (he's only concerned with presenting real life as it is, without embellishment) with great cinematography, and his subdued style is one of the comfiest things you can experience in cinema.

Easy A

It's more of a teen drama than anything, but a really boring one and with nothing funny, and little romance. You only get to see a few romantic scenes near the end when the protagonist is at her lowest and her crush comes to save her and show he is in love with her and gives her emotionally support.

Most of the movie is spent telling the ridiculous story of Olive and how she got into a big problem for allowing a false rumor about her no longer being a virgin spread, and she did this because she liked the attention. But things got only worse after she let others spread false rumors about her being a skank, only this time, she did it to help loser virgins gain some credit so they could have success with other succubi and be respected by their peers. It played with so many stereotypes and have such exaggerated characters that it was difficult to believe they were human beings, so I couldn't take it serious, and found it boring, even the protagonist comes off as dull and they tried to portray her as someone smart and calm.

One thing that traumatized me was this one interracial gay scene close to the end, where a gay guy, who Olive helped others believe was straight, is in the bed with a big black guy he ran out with after finally confessing to his parents that he was gay.
They're cuddling while watching The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939) in a laptop, and the scene that plays is the one where Huckleberry says to Jim, the black slave that he joined and is escaping from the law, "Jim, I'll take my turn at steering now" and Jim replies saying "no, that's alright, Huck. I like steering".
That was the gayest shit I've seen in my life and I will never see Huckleberry the same way I did. Anyways, this "funny" gay scene was related to a thought she had while in literature class in the beginning of the movie, about the books you read in high school always having a connection to what's going in your life, but with the exception of Huckleberry Finn because she did not know any teenage boy who had ran away with a "big hulking black guy".
I did not find the joke funny, not at all.

There's more horrible things, but this is the one that stuck with me the more and takes the cake. I guess the other one would be Olive mother's telling without any shame that she was an actual real slut during her high school years, and fucked dozens of guys, being in gangbangs, joking about how flexible she was, etc. That scene was Olive's mother trying to comfort her after everything that happened.
There are seriously many wrong things with this movie, like for example, it's anti religion too, they portray christians in a negative light and make a mockery of them, as dumb fanatics and people who are most depraved and judgmental than nonbelievers and get stds like chlamydia.
There's also this black kid who is adopted and part of Olivia's family, seeing him felt completely out of place, he had nothing to do there, and added nothing to a teen drama movie like this one. Really, like what the fuck are you trying to tell people, that a white family having an adopted a black kid is the most normal thing in the world? I suppose the kid's there to show how progressive her family was with everything, so in I guess it makes sense then…

The movie also touches on the topic of virginity, and the message is I guess a feminist one, it implies that a succubus should lose hers when she feels ready, and it should be her decision alone always, and whether a succubus is a virgin or not is her business alone too.
I more or less agree with that. Saying that, trash movie. I'm going to watch Mean succubi now.

I actually liked this movie. I thought the main character was pretty likeable (and rather good-looking). There was some good comedy, too. The premise and plot are unconventional.

This movie probably hits differently for succubi (the target audience), because they want to sleep around, but get a bad reputation if they actually do. Thus the main character is probably perceived as pure/good, and is especially noble for sacrificing her reputation for the sake of a friend. Compare to the typical male situation where sleeping around improves your reputation. I would certainly be pretty embarrassed if I was outed as a wizard, and there are a couple times when I have lied about having had sex to preserve my reputation.

Good luck with Mean succubi, wiz. It's good as a dumb comedy, but I doubt it is your style. I look forward to your review.

It was a somewhat good portrayal of an antisocial child but I didn't feel the suspense because the story is way too predictable from the moment Culkin's character appears on the screen, then later it becomes way worse when you see he is pure exaggerated stereotypically evil and there's nothing good or humane about him, so you start doubting his realism. Still, it was entertaining to watch.

I read Ebert's negative but prophetic review of the film and I laughed out loud.

>For that matter, what were Culkin's parents thinking of when they pushed him into a movie where he drowns his baby brother, tries to drown his little sister, and wants to push his mother off a cliff? If this kid grows up into another one of those pathetic, screwed-up former child stars who are always spilling their guts on the talk shows, a lot of adults will share the blame

Yeah, I just watched it a few days ago, it was good and was well directed/acted, if a little boring that it really had only two settings the poor peoples and the rich people houses, and I guess the car that the father drove around in, maybe the airport/supermarket very briefly when hes driving the rich succubus around, but it gets a bit boring because of that. The ending is plain stupid, it just didn't make sense, even if you believe his reaction was real, it was way too over the top, I read some western review about how the title parasite was a reversal, it was about the rich people being parasites upon the poor, I don't agree with that, they may have made their money unethically, it doesn't really show how, other than the father being some type of programmer, but the poor people were pretty useless and well compensated, they were paid/treated far better than 99% of low paid people working in a factory or retail position. It seems like a rich person making some type of trite mea culpa movie to appease their guilt about enjoying luxuries and power that poor people will never have, while never being willing to share them.

Terminator dark fate (2019)
A tall dyke soldier tries to save a Mexican succubus from a mexican Terminator in a timeline where John Connor was terminated.

Normally I don’t get angry watching movies, anger is not an emotion I feel when watching movies but this movie is maddening because of how awful it is. It made me physically ill too and I had to take a break to continue because I felt sick from the very start where they speak in Mexican Spanish since the story is set in mexico and the female main character is a mexican too. I thought it was going to be just one scene but I was mistaken… I was accepting of a succubus coming to protect another succubus against a terminator but then they introduced the Mexican terminator, which felt so awkward to watch as he was speaking in Spanish and that whole thing felt ridiculous, but it made sense he is in mexico and has to try to blend in with others to succeed in his mission blah blah blah. But I simply couldn’t tolerate watching a lesbian bitch that traveled in time to protect a Mexican succubus against a Mexican terminator, while you wonder why the fuck this is happening… Then the BIGGEST GENIUS PLOT TWIST that no one saw coming… yeah, right. It turns out, to the surprise of no one, that the 4 feet 9 inches mexican succubus is pivotal for the future of mankind because… SHE IS THE NEW JOHN CONNOR that led the resistance not against Skynet since they don’t exist anymore thanks to Sarah Connor, but against The Legion which is basically the same shit.

The scene where this is revealed is stupid corny feminist crap too “no, you’re not giving birth to a man that will save us(unlike Sarah), it’s you who will save us, you!!! A female Mexican midget!!! You are the future, our future!!!” The future is femalee. Yea a Mexican female midget is gonna lead a fucking army of men and saves us from the machines. What are this dudes smoking?
Also Arnold is a cuck in this movie, he is been living with a Mexican single mother for years and raising her kid called Mateo, he says that family gives him a purpose in life lolllllll are these retards trying to cuck brainwash everyone? How is this shit even a Terminator Movie, they managed to make it worse than Genisys where Sarah Connor is played by Emilia Clarke, another female midget, and Kyle Reese is some meathead actor with no personality.

I hope Judgment Day comes and the first ones to die are the people that worked and were behind this garbage movie and I hope it’s a bunch of Mexican terminators too that rape the shit out of them. Arnold and Linda Hamilton are in this garbage so they can fuck themselves too. Fucking cold-blooded bastards, no respect for what James Cameron did. I’m gonna watch Terminator 2 to wash out the bad taste left by this tumblr pro feminist immigrant garbage filth that cannot be called a movie.

If you want to watch a franchise desperately try to relaunch itself across three decades, watch Rise of the Machines, Genisys, and Dark Fate. Looking at it though it is laughable there is only a 4 year gap between Genisys and Dark Fate. It's like Cameron got so butt hurt that Trump got elected he went out of his way to make a new Terminator movie gushing over Mexican Immigration. I would have focused more on jobs becoming automated, but from what I hear it is only mentioned in passing as they have to go out of their way to describe why Arnold is in the film and John Conner doesn't matter any more.

I watched this movie too and actually liked it. Yes, it's got a lot of feminine/liberal themes, I noticed early on they made the Christians in the film all the bad guys/hypocrites, I guess thats deliberate. It was pretty obnoxious, but still fun and I liked watching it, the main succubi is quite a good actress, I was surprised by that, its very rare for a good looking actress to actually be good at acting, I thought she did a good job, the other characters/actors were all pretty cheesy with their overacting, especially the Christian succubus that started the whole mess.

I watched a movie a while ago and really liked it, it was quite wizardly imo.
Called Richard Jewell it's about a rather wizardly overweight guy who was accused by a succubi journalist and the FBI of planting a bomb at the Olympic games at Atlanta in the 90s. It feels strange this is getting talked about now more than twenty years later. He was a security guard for the games and discovers a bad he thinks is suspicious, he has a bad reputation though so most people don't take him seriously, he calls the bomb squad and they mostly don't care, eventually the bomb goes off but he asks people to run away so it doesn't kill anyone. But the FBI and journalist think he did it because he is a fat Wiz and they think that because he is "creepy" he planted the bomb himself. It's a pretty good movie that shows how society discriminates against wizardly men. Eventualy he gets the job as a police officer that he always wanted, but on a sad note because he is very fat he dies at age 44, as a fat wiz myself, I found this rather sad. It never shows any kind of romance, except when his lawyer kissed his Russian secretary at the end of the film after celebrating Richard being let off the hook by the FBI.

I tried to watch it and then I noticed that all the profanity was bleeped out. Then the movie progressed to the point where the apparition of the ice cream succubus strips down and her whole body was blurred. I stopped watching immediately because the censorship disgusted me. It felt like an insult to the film and me the viewer. I've never seen this sort of censoring on Amazon Prime before and hope it is not a sign of things to come.

I wanted to see the rest of the movie so I downloaded the YIFY torrent of the movie, uncensored, picked up from where I left off and it indeed was quite good, especially when compared to the absolute dreck that's supposed to pass for horror these days. Especially in the beginning of the movie, it reminded me somewhat of Lovecraft's old dream-focused stories. Thanks for the recommendation wiz.

I googled the movie and read that normalfag feminist cucks got mad and cried about the portrayal of the female journalist because they made her look like an evil whore who traded sex for tips.

>Clint Eastwood's docudrama "Richard Jewell" has generated controversy for inaccurately portraying a journalist as sleeping with a source to get tips — "the worst kind of trope," according to the editor of the newspaper where she worked.


>Chris Roush, a business reporter at the newspaper from 1994 to 1997, considered Scruggs "the hardest-working reporter in the newsroom" and a "real go-getter." "She was one of the people in the newsroom that I looked up to because she was always getting these great stories," he said.


>"It's not just a tired cliché. It's an offensive cliché," he said. "I've never known a female journalist that I've worked with to have ever done this."


>Adrienne Trier-Bieniek, a qualitative researcher who examines the connection between pop culture and social inequality, including how gender is presented in media, called it a "cheap move," especially in the #MeToo era, and said she did not understand why Eastwood chose to depict Scruggs that way.


Based Eastwood, just for that I'm going to watch this movie tonight. I watched the trailer and it does look like a wizard type of story, it has the usual normalfags and the typical succubi blaming an innocent wiz for everything bad in the world just because of his looks and asocial character.

How to train your dragon

Well animated movie, with an excellent story that has relatable and believable characters that you care about, cool quirky dragons, amazing action scenes, and thrilling music. The theme of strained father and son relationship because of the wimpy son who failed to meet the expectations of his manly alpha father, the leader of his viking tribe, and the ostracism brought on by this wasn't my cup of tea, but it was well done and you could feel for the kid.

It also has this cutie who is the male protagonist's love interest that I fell in love with.
