Der Busenfreund

Cabiria

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

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.

PROSPERO
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.

MIRANDA
Certainly, sir, I can.

PROSPERO
By what? by any other house or person?
Of any thing the image tell me that
Hath kept with thy remembrance.

MIRANDA
'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?

PROSPERO
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:
PROSPERO
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.
ALONSO
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.

One thing I can say is that it was unlike anything Mr. Anno has done before. Having seen the entire Eva series, End of Eva, the first three rebuild films and Shin Gojira I didn't know what to expect. Another thing I can say, if I cant find anymore perfect words to review it, is that it's also his most fun movie to date. You could at least tell he held the character dear to his heart since his childhood in the early 70s and puts all his human experience, spanning nearly four decades as a director, on celluloid.

Of course there are bits that are not for everyone from the exagerated violence to the way he has characters talk like they're still in Shin Godzilla if not the same animes he's directed. Otherwise there were too many aspects, and even inspired moments, which kept me from disliking the movie in its entirety.

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.

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!"

Good movie.

this was a great depiction of a volcel in film.

as you can tell from the trailer by the end of it, stacy's sympathy for the loser crab has turned into love.

but in the plot twist heel turn, he tells her that he was just using her to get into Harvard, and all he cares about is Harvard. And even though he could have her as a gf, and probably take her virginity, all he cares about is using her to get his grades up for Harvard, and once that is done he doesn't want to see her anymore. he was a volcel just pretending to be a crab to manipulate the manipulator.

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.

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'm about to finish the last movie of this franchise after marathoning through the first three this week and I gotta' say that these are some of the worst movies I've seen all year. Weird to think how I actually used to sorta' enjoy these whenever the SciFi channel would air these twenty years ago, but I found them a bit hard to follow.

I remember watching this film in theaters back in 2005 when I was 16 years old. Felt kinda' proud of being allowed in to watch an NC-17 movie without having anyone ask me for ID or anything.

Simple things like that used to make me feel so happy sometimes even though the movie sorta' sucked.

It was alright. I checked it out because it had some bands I like doing the music and overall it was a fun and gory slasher. It's a degenerate frat movie but goes overboard in a brutal way that it's a lot less inoffensive than "serious" horror films that aim to make people uncomfortable.

I watched rescue dawn (2006)
It was good, Id even call it a literally me movie, as the kids say. It stars American psycho man as a pow in Vietnam. What I enjoyed about it was the depictions of mental decay that the pows suffer. They start to act childlike as a way to create positive experiences. One scene has mr bateman trying to hoard what little rice he can in order to attempt an escape, but in the middle of stockpiling hes surprised by the rest of the pow group throwing him a birthday "party" (they just huddle together and whisper the happy birthday song). He Immediately stops to huddle up with his pals and join in.
I felt like I have become more infantile these years, and It was a relatable experience seeing these boys just try and get by with their friendship. Just like me with the bros in the computer screen. I will have to get through christian bale's filmography thanks to this movie, as well as 3:10 to yuma, a nice little lightly christpilled western.

Just finished watching Angela.

It very much has the same problem most 90s chic targeted flicks have.
Where the majority of the run time is random stuff happens built to bait emotion but very little of it built around a tight well plotted story.
Makes the whole thing feel sloppy when it comes to wrtting.

Was decently shot, and I get the ideas they were going for but they didn't really execute the themes they were going for very well. They tried to be clever but weren't quite smart enough to pull it off competently. There are many attempts at substance but it doesn't quite reach it.
It has touches of sharpness, or edginess yet always pulls back scared.

At the end of the day it's only half decent. Half good. Half-assed.

That's why I give it a 3 out of 5.
It's not a boring film. It's not bad, but it's far from being good ether.

I got the feeling while watching the first movie that she was developing some sort of mental illness. Probably not, though, since it's just a goofy light-hearted Disney/Pixar film and they generally don't delve too deeply into serious issues like mental illness.

Mental illness among succubi isn't a serious issue anymore. It's a subculture that they all celebrate and reward for. Ironic, because the case of taking a child from her home, dropping her in a disgusting and crowded city with nobody who looks or acts like her, and then her parents ignoring her is a genuine cause for serious mental issues. The film passes it off as "normal" i.e "She just needs time to adapt, she'll get over it, her brain chemicals need to settle and then she'll fit right in to this city of sidewalk turds and violent crime", even going as far as to pull the old "She's just mad cuz puberty lol hormones :^)". The one film they make about a legitimate serious issue that afflicts children is the one film they turn around as "the emotional main character was actually wrong this time". It's sick.

Sure, it plays it safe, is uninspired, seems to think being better than Foodfight! means it's good, and even makes Tales of Earthsea look like Nausicaä.

I just have trouble hating it when at least someone in Ghibli is aware enough to know that if anyone should get their hands on Takashi Yamazaki first it should not be someone overseas.

And who better than Miyazaki's son, who will probably release his next film 7 years from now anyway given his track record.

I stopped being able to care about kaiju movies after the first Legendary Godzilla (2014) film. I check out things releasing and watch the trailers but everything I have seen except Shin Godzilla has been pretty bad in my eyes. I guess it is just nostalgia as I was obsessed with kaiju as a child and even have a ton of figures from before the prices skyrocketed and Godzilla was popular again.

Isn't there a Shin Ultraman that came out recently? I think I saw a clip from that and it seemed interesting. I might have to check that out.

I remember around 2019/20 I made up a term called "uncanny mountain", which I associated with animation that was essentially bridging the gap between cg and traditional animation (aka very much a reverse uncanny valley or whatever). So far this is pretty much the case as it was with Otaking77077's Tie Fighter and 2019's Klaus.

though it does also seem to flirt with Budokai Teniaichi's visuals here and there.

I saw the boy and the heron today. It was pretty good. The animation and visuals were just fucking amazing. The story I didn't really get though, it took too long to get going and then by the time it ends it just feels like none of the characters have really earned their "growth" so to speak. for example the main character mahito befriends a character named himi and supposedly is supposed to be very bonded to her by the end, but she only shows up like 45 minutes from the end. And there's this weird parakeet society in the spirit world and they are for some reason important, but nothing about them is ever explained.

I was trying to figure out what my favorite movies are. Not the best in a objective way but the ones that appeal to me in a way, and watching them gives me a good feeling, like 'comfort food' movies if you will. It was not easy to put this list together, turns out there are not many movies that I really like. Anyway I managed to put together this image with 9 movies. Not 100% sure about some of them but that's what I got stuck with.

…well i’m not gonna lie:
When Greta Gerwig’s New DBZ movie isn’t hiding its convoluted scene about masculinity (particularly in the clímax, when the Saiyans get their land back from the súcubo), it was actually 75% hit and just 25% miss, earning its popularity.

Ok, I have seen essentially every Isao Takahata film from Ghibli (or the ones that HBO has, for the most bit), so here are my thoughts for each one.

Grave of the fireflies
Saw this one back in 2019. It’s quite a bummer, yes, but it was executed all right and the visuals did get to me by the end. 10/10

Only Yesterday
Much less tonally heartwrenching that the former, that’s for sure. It’s still successful in its own introspective merits, and the visuals are as atmospheric as the style is dynamic (to the point I even feel as though Mike Judge might have garnered inspiration in terms of honest style), so it was good too. 10/10

Pom Poko
Eccentric to a fault for sure, but the way it creatively juggles the 90s’ environmentalist trend with Japanese folklore, zany animation, groundbreaking visuals and mature themes done in a way most directors would require experience to pull off is what makes the journey all the more worthwhile. 8/10

My neighbors the Yamadas
Uncommonly minimalist (and even humorous) for Takahata’s ouvre, Yamadas still makes up for whatever it lacks with the director’s signature friendly flair and down to Earth atmosphere. 7/10.

The Tale of Princess Kaguya.
Takahata’s apogee (or at least his Swan Song) finds him essentially mixing a sort of greatest hits from his most prominent strengths in the 90s and adding a post-Xie Yi/Sumí-E touch to the visuals with a well known albeit bittersweet piece of literature. 9.5/10

Kinda makes me sad I technically began watching his films a year after his passing, but even as Japan seems to say this more than any of us natives in the tongue, que será será..

After playing RoboCop Rogue City I decided to rewatch the first two movies and watch the third one for the first time. Watching the first one again I realized RoboCop is really a satirical comedy with lots of gore, fun violence and a very interesting sci-fi environment. They show just enough of RoboCop to make it cool in the first movie, which mainly consists of him giving one or two steps forward, pulling a gun from his concealed thigh holster and shooting a whole lot of ‘scum’ and ‘creeps’. That’s his machine side. His human side is mainly shown through his conversations with his partner, Anne Lewis. Again, these conversations are done sparingly, so there’s a lot left to the viewer’s imagination and assumptions about the character. The movie makes an excellent job at letting you wonder about the character. RoboCop’s humanity vs machine motif is done with a lot of charm and doesn’t get in the way of the action, nor gets in the way of the brutal humor the movie has. I really liked pretty much every scene of the first movie. It’s fast paced, has a good balance between satire, violence and character development scenes and world building without being intrusive and of course, it’s the first time you see RoboCop and the armor design is very cool.

And then the sequel comes in. RoboCop 2. It’s a significant downgrade from the first one. I think the biggest problem here is that they decided to include a lot of children in this movie. I’m pretty sure this has something to do with toy deals and it does hurt the movie a lot. RoboCop is now singing to kids and other nonsense that doesn’t fit the character (he got his programming altered at one point so his behavior changes). The solutions from plot points feel like the writers just used whatever bullshit it first came to mind. For example how RoboCop get rid of the faulty programming OCP implants in his brain at one point. Unimaginative and just not fun at all. Second problem is the main villain, Cain. He’s fucking garbage as a villain and as a character, poor guy. Still, there are moments in there that are very salvageable and push the main characters into interesting directions. Besides it’s always nice to see Lewis and Sgt. Reed gave the grounding to RoboCop. The world building here is also not bad at all and we get to know about gangs and drugs and more companies of this dystopian Detroit. So it's still an interesting watch.

Then the third in came in and it’s honestly quite damn awful. I just watched the thing and I can’t remember a single good scene about it. Maybe the suicide scene in the OCP building but that’s about it. Villains are cardboard and uninteresting, the humor and satire gave way to goofiness and cheese. The violence is bland and boring (this movie has an attempt rape scene like the first one and watching both side by side will illustrate just how awful this movie is compared to the original.) And now they have a child hacker that goes around helping RoboCop. It’s that bad of a cheese with this one. But worst of all, Peter Weller, the one and only RoboCop is not in this movie. The titular role is played by some bozo that fails miserably. It’s funny how you don’t know how good Weller is until he’s not there anymore. This RoboCop is angry all the time and too emotional in general, completely breaking the character and making it not RoboCop. Honestly, I wouldn’t even consider this movie part of the franchise. The brutal humor is gone, the bizarre and over the top violence is gone, and RoboCop himself is just an impostor. To make it worse, RoboCop spends half of the movie on his ass, he keeps tripping and falling over, fucking pathetic and I think only someone wanting to watch everything RoboCop would stomach this one. No wonder RoboCop was pretty much finished after this third entry, it sucks bad. I mean even the posters kept getting worse so I’ll just upload the first one to this post.

Then there’s the cartoon that I’m guessing is just there to sell more toys and a couple of super cheap TV series that didn’t last more than a season. In my mind canon the third movie never happened, it goes from RoboCop 2 to RoboCop Rogue City, which is a very excellent game and a very fun RoboCop experience.

And then there’s the reboot which by reading the reviews, it’s pretty damn bad. I feel like the heart of RoboCop is made mainly of 3 ingredients. Weller’s acting, the armor’s design and the humor with grit. And the reboot has none of those. Putting RoboCop as the title doesn’t make it so.

I was looking for something to watch, came to check this thread and this one caught my attention. The premise is great:
>An unhinged office worker who planned to go on a shooting spree at his workplace struggles with his newfound status as a hero after he ends up stopping a shooting spree instead.
And the first 30, 35 minutes is great as well but I've never seen a movie fall apart as badly as this one. The movie starts with a great idea but it quickly gets worse and the ending is complete shit. It feels like somebody sabotaged the script on purpose, holy shit.

I was expecting more of this, people call it a classic. The plot is almost nonexistent. Dirty Harry chases a maniac through San Francisco and… that't it. It's one scene of Harry running around after the other. Half the chase happens during night time and it's hard to see what's going on. His partner Chico gets shot at one point and I was barely able to make out what happened it was so dark. The lack of side characters is also a problem. Harry has two partners during the duration of the film, Giorgio and Chico but they're barely in it at all. Giorgio is in 3 scenes, tops. It's like the main character is floating in empty space. The villain is serviceable but nothing to write home about. The famous scene with the line "Do you feel lucky, punk?" is nice and sometimes I wonder if that's the only reason people like this movie so much. It's not like it has anything else going for it.

the actual plot or story though reminded me of a story i had to write in third grade. it was all build-up, all i did was assemble a team of pokemon like pikachu and charizard, and then in a single sentence it was over with no resolution. it really felt like i was watching a movie of that, every fucking new scene they go off to another planet building the team up, new crazy wacky looking characters, wow badass fighters, and then you have the team, and then it's over and it was lame
