>What's the oldest film you've seen?
I noticed it the last thread hit limit a couple days ago and decided to watch a movie to start the new one with a nice review but couldn't find anything to watch. Spent a couple hours on imdb trying to pick up an interesting horror movie but couldn't find anything I haven't watched already. Oh well>>65515
Beat you by a single year, Cabiria is from 1914.
i watched a nazi propaganda film, 'hitlerjunge quex' from 1933 and that is the oldest thing i've seen. it was not bad, i appreciated the main character abstaining from drugs and alcohol and flirting. it reminded me of myself as a boy in those moments. it is propaganda though so it is ruined by the necessity to force a message. the ending is abrupt and inflammatory and probably got people riled up and ready to fight communists at the time. the nazi youth group activities reminded me of the boy scouts when i was little. interesting film
das hassliche madchen, 1933. cool movie, good comedy, skits, funny moments. plain looking succubus secretary falls for a womanizer accountant and antics ensue. it's aged very well
i'm currently going through a list of cinema i found, it's stuff released during the third reich. seems like films that the average german in the nazi era could go see, i'm not too sure but it was a premade list and seemed interesting. https://archive.org/details/cttrh/
Just watched The Tempest, the version from the excellent 'BBC Television Shakespeare' they did in the 70s and 80s. I've seen around 10 plays so far. This one is about Prospero, a sorcerer and the Duke of Milan and his daughter. They're stranded on an island after Prospero's brother usurped the power to himself. Shakespeare is a very weird watch for me, even if I've watched so much of it at this point. It seems like the focus is never what's happening but what the characters have to say. I'm sure this is how theater suppose to work given how very limited is the stuff you can actually show on stage but it makes for a completely different storytelling method I'm not used to. And the things the characters have to say and how they express it is so above and beyond of what you normally see nowadays. Honestly it's almost like the characters we have in media today are a little better than monkeys making rudimentary gestures by comparison.
Looks at some of these lines. In this scene, Prospero is asking his daughter Miranda what she remembers from her early childhood in Milan.
The hour's now come;
The very minute bids thee ope thine ear;
Obey and be attentive. Canst thou remember
A time before we came unto this cell?
I do not think thou canst, for then thou wast not
Out three years old.
Certainly, sir, I can.
By what? by any other house or person?
Of any thing the image tell me that
Hath kept with thy remembrance.
'Tis far off
And rather like a dream than an assurance
That my remembrance warrants. Had I not
Four or five succubi once that tended me?
Thou hadst, and more, Miranda. But how is it
That this lives in thy mind? What seest thou else
In the dark backward and abysm of time?
If thou remember'st aught ere thou camest here,
How thou camest here thou mayst.
And this line. Ferdinand just witnessed the spirits of the island performing a song. Prospero explains to Ferdinand what he just saw:
You do look, my son, in a moved sort,
As if you were dismay'd: be cheerful, sir.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep. Sir, I am vex'd;
Bear with my weakness; my, brain is troubled:
Be not disturb'd with my infirmity:
If you be pleased, retire into my cell
And there repose: a turn or two I'll walk,
To still my beating mind.
And this one I particularly like. It's a line Alonso utters to himself, wishing he could forget the death of his son, which he believes to have witnessed a day prior.
What, all so soon asleep? I wish mine eyes
Would, with themselves, shut up my thoughts. I find
They are inclined to do so.
Every time these characters open their mouths you know something interesting is going to come out. Anyway, my favorite plays still is Macbeth but The Tempest was pretty good, too. I think I'll watch A Midsummer Night's Dream next.
I "saw" the dial of destiny (read the wikipedia synopsis) and I have to say its not that bad. They did Shia LaBeouf dirty though killing his character. I'm deeply disappointed Short Round didn't appear, as I fantasized him taking over the role of Indiana Jones by stealing Indi's hat. The whole time traveling plot seemed out of place though, but I suppose not as bad as aliens. The female protagonist doesn't sound as annoying or woke as people feared she would be. But I don't know why they can't just recast Indie and go back to setting his adventures between Young Indi and 1950. I guess they just have problems finding someone who can replace Ford's charisma and screen presence. I would like another Temple of Doom like movie where instead of fighting Nazi antagonists its just about Indie going on adventures in a foreign land or ancient ruin, but I suppose that's impossible these days without someone decrying cultural appropriation.
do you normally consume this way, reading synopses, instead of watching? i feel like that would ruin the fun

Judith de Bethulia (1914).>>65517
I remember reading about this movie while I was doing research on D.W. Griffith. I may possibly see it after watching Birth of a Nation.
ill be honest i tried watching this mario movie
i was expecting old mario stuff, but immediately these penguin guys are given massive screentime and im like who the fuck are these assholes? probably from some newer mario game but i dont remember seeing any of those fuckers in mario kart or super mario.
it was full of jew propaganda and thr stonk wyman meme. it was unwatchable
I watched Superman: Doomsday a few days ago. It's a good film with quite different character design compared to what I know Superman has. Superman has some weird lines on his face which might be his cheek bones. Lois Lane looks Latina in this one, too. Lex Luther is also oddly skinny with a head that looks caved in. The relationship between Superman and Lois is actually really good, though. I think they had good chemistry and the relationship was faithful to what I've known. Absolutely no complaints. However, Superman's / Clark Kent's best friend, Jimmy Olsen, acted really different than what I expected. He ended up leaving the News company he worked at to work at another news company that documents celebrity news. He stopped doing news in relation to Superman, but also didn't help Lois Lane find out the truth about the fake Superman. I didn't expect that since I thought they were best friends, but I really don't know the lore very much. Also, Lex Luther acts weird in the fact that he clones Superman and has this weird daddy domination thing with the clone. He literally says, "Come to daddy!" to Superman.
It's a good film. I swear I've already watched it once, though.
You never played Mario 64? Obviously they aren't presented as a kingdom in that, but they were a memorable part of that for me. I remember throwing the baby around and racing the other penguin.
no i haven't played anything nintendo beyond snes. i guess that explains it though
>What's the last movie you've seen?
John Wick 4
What's the oldest film you've seen?
I think it's Metropolis
I watched Superman and the Molemen. It's not what I expected. I expected Superman to kick some Moleman ass, but instead, I got a film where Molemen adventured onto the surface and were hunted down by a mob. One of the Molemen got shot, the other one was almost burned alive to death. They legit tried to lynch one of the Molemen when he was in the hospital. It wasn't that bad for a Superman movie. In fact, it was a breath of fresh air when it's usually Superman vs super powered villain or billionaire.
At the end of the movie, the Molemen destroyed the passage that lead to the surface. Lois Lane said, "It was like they're saying, you live your life, and I'll live mine." Nah, it's more like, "Get away from me you crazy humans!"
I also watched other Superman movies like Superman Vs the Elite, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam, and The Batman Superman Movie: World's Finest. All of them are good movies.
I just returned the Superman/Batman: Apocalypse comic book today at my library. It's said to be somewhat of a sequel to Superman/Batman Public Enemies. Do you plan on watching the movie version sometime?
I remember being obsessed with Superman in the 90s, and borrowing it from a video store. and thinking it was a post-WW2 Superman from my grandpa's era, and not realizing it was the same George Reeves from my dad's TV series.
I have a few more movies I want to watch including that one. The others are Superman: Man of Tomorrow, Superman: Red Sun, Superman: Unbound, The Death of Superman / The Return of Superman / The Death and Return of Superman (the latter being both movies combined), and The Reign of the Supermen. I still need to watch Superman 1 - 4 as well.
After that, I'll probably watch some of the animated series after the Batman Animated Series. >>65900
Turns out Superman and the Molemen is the only movie he did. Also, he was probably killed by the Mafia. Interesting.
I thought this scene was just ridiculous where Superman just shouts ENOUGH! like he got bored of the Doomsday clones, and just instantly mass incinerates them to dust.
But years later in JL Dark, they actually returned to the concept, what if it actually was an army of Doomsdays at full power.
I just watched that one. Superman and Kara Zor-el got the shit beaten out of them. Lots of fighting and death in this one, too. I've been watching these movies, and they're so captivating. I started watching these Superman movies because I've seen a bunch of clips of them, but now, I'm really enjoying it gets my mind off the real world. Such a pretty, simple, movie.
If you mean JL Dark, I don't think Kara is in it.
unpopular opinion but white people make boring movies. jews are really the creative force behind most european and american cinema
white people invented film as it exists today
I can't recall a single good movie from any of those names.
they make good comedies about losers, and i cant relate to characters who are too charismatic charming and successful
All awful producers and directors. Jewish writers are all perverts too.>>65991
Good comedies? What, some skinny wimpy gross guy gets boobs pressed in his face and makes a comment about his boner?>i cant relate to characters who are too charismatic charming and successful
Only sickos need to relate to something to enjoy it.
>>65993>TSS and GOTG
I, and I doubt anyone here, knows whatever Jewish nickelodeon porn films those stand for. It's quite rude to deduce names to abbreviations.
cool idea. the beginning and middle drag a little and the narration is kind of annoying. but the last third or so is fantastic
The Green Knight (recent?)
really cool. 2 hours long. after the beginning which just sets the stage basically, it kept me wanting to know what happens next, the entirety of it i was just glued to the screen. i watched it blind without reading a description or anything after seeing it recommended via a random comment on a porn site of all unlikely places. and so i recommend you do the same. very cool
i like the soundtracks to 70s horror films
i liked ken in the real world, that's about it. also i guess the references to old classic barbie stuff was cool, despite not knowing any of it. ie the barbie with boobs that grows when her arm is raised, or tv-in-her-back barbie
was still worth seeing purely for ryan gosling, i like him as an actor. no way in hell would i have watched this movie otherwise, and i think they were very smart with casting him for this reason
I just watched it, too. There were times (especially at the beginning) where it seemed to me they were doing "something right" like they did in the mario bros movie (considering it's developed around a pop-culture subject), but the movie failed to deliver many of it's (admittedly just barely hinted upon) promises.
I was half expecting them to do some somewhat smart subversion of the whole feminist narrative, half knowing it would transit the commonplaces of dominant leftist thought. And guess which was the road taken by the movie. Unsurprising.
The ending was lame, lame as fuck and it pretty much meant nothing, delivered no message whatsoever, and in a way only contributed to the notion that men and womyn are separate and not mutually dependent social entities. Perhaps I was reading too deep into it, but considering the whole thing was some sort of twisted feminist propaganda, I think my reading is valid, but then again, how deep does feminist thought go? I'll leave the answer to the reader.
it took him 20 years and over 30 movies AFTER becoming an actor to become somewhat successful and that's only because there are no real stars anymore
in hindsight if I compare myself to him, being a virgin loser that never cares about "making it" doesn't seem like such a bad fate
On that subject, I do have a bone to pick with this kind of movie. It either is a light hearted movie around a toy, or a piece of femisinit propaganda, and not both. The fact that it was thinly diguised as the first and didn't actually present their message in full force pretending it was just harmless entertainment dillutes the purpose of the movie and it's value as a thing of pop culture.
I compare again to mario bros the movie, which does well it's job of being a kid's movie while delivering a rehearsed yet unpretentios message to it's primary audience while dropping a bunch of "easter eggs" for the parents who are well acquainted with the source material.
I haven't watched it yet, but I can't deny that I like how it looks, mainly because I have a soft spot for movies with over-the-top art direction.
Yeah, the the concept was a lot better than the execution on the Wishmaster movies.
I don't know what happens during writing and editing but they were kinda a fucking mess when it came to plotting from what I remember.
The first one is good enough for what it is. It's very rare for horror movies to pull off a franchise, it's usually downhill after the first one.
>God how I hate horror movies, but I don't really have much else to watch.
What are your favorites? I quite like the cheese of Stuart Gordon Lovecratian movies.
I want to see III just because Im a George c Scott fan, but hes a cop in his 70s
I don't really have favorite horror movies. Horror movies with a supernatural (e.g. Poltergeist) and/or scifi element (e.g. Alien, The Thing) are more to my liking, but that's really because I just like scifi in general.
Have you tried Italian movies, like Suspiria and Inferno by Dario Argento, and The Beyond by Lucio Fulci? What about George Romero's movies, like all the Dead ones or Martin? What about Japanese ones like Noroi or Hausu?
Also the Swedish Let the Right One In. Check these out if you haven't already, I'd say they are all pretty different from an average horror movie.
It's said that the original idea for the ending of Freddy x Jason would add Pinhead from Hellraiser in the mix, so we actually might have had Jason fighting demons in Hell. Maybe one day they will pick that up again.
