I'm not much of a movies guy, but I have watched the new season of Animaniacs.

It's as funny as I thought, if not funnier.

Although they basically killed off so many characters, they introduced Julia Brain and she's my favourite character.

Also, I'm avatarfagging Marcos Jeeves now

Just saw Tales from Earthsea, a childhood favourite!
Can’t say I’ve watched a lot of the Ghibli movies myself, but the animation and sound is executed pretty well.
And the storyline has some innate, emotional moments throughout

The War of Gangster - Best CRIME ACTION Full Length Movie [ Subtitles ]

I watched this last night. Was kinda distracted and lost track of most of the plot, but it seemed good? Lol. I mean, good acting and action and stuff, and quite a wild climax.

It's good? I'll need to give a few episodes a try. I liked the original series, but was super hesitant about the new stuff.

Guess I'm feeling overwhelmed with reboots as it is, and figured that Animaniacs was such a product of 90's cynical "mean" culture that it might not have been able to hit the same beats.


>>1780
I'd actually not heard much about this one, even though I've seen a good chunk of the other Ghibli stuff.

Looks like a fantasy dragon film?


>>1781
Aa I'll need to check it out when I get home.

I can't find anything else about this one, is there like an IMDB page about it?

It's not strictly a dragon film but they do play an important role in parts of the storyline

Which ones would you say are the best to watch in the Ghibli collection?

Just saying "all of em" wouldn't help would it haha. Princess Mononoke is one of my fave films period. Kiki's Delivery Service is excellent as well. Really I think it would be hard to go wrong with any!

Hmm, I'll give it a shot, maybe this evening or this weekend, could be neat to see how it stacks up

>Do you watch Japanese films often?
yes, and other Asian films (China, South Korea, and sometimes Thailand)
>I've only really seen like Seven Samurai and Ring.
it's been a while since I've seen those but I recall them being good, especially Seven Samurai.

Foreign films have a peculiar style to them. Or at least anything non-Hollywood feels like a breath of fresh air, usually.

I tried to watch Unforgiven, but the audio cut out after 45 minutes and the rest of the video was silent. The first 45 minutes was pretty great.

Then I watched Waxwork, because goofy low budget 80s horror/comedy.
I would recommend it, if you enjoy goofy low budget 80s horror/comedies. definitely fits the so-bad-it's-good category for me.

Japanese and Korean action films tend to feel so much more...raw, gritty, brutal, etc. than Hollywood films, in terms of violence AND emotion.

I've not watched many of those low budget goofy films, honestly. Have seen a few but typically haven't gone for em. Would that be a good place to start or would you rec something else?

Is that the same Arrival that's about the aliens that come to earth and scientists try to figure out how their language works? Or is that a different one?


>>1834
Yeah, I watched Oldboy based on how highly rated it was, and man it was super intense. Need to seek more of them out haha

Lots of Hollywood films seem to be too... polished a lot of the time. Idk if that's a weird way to describe it

a movie i enjoyed the most was scarface (out of hollywood and normie stuff)

im sure everyone likey has seen it

but i enjoyed it because how it was no holds bar

they didn't let back at all and that was a major thing back in the 80's

story was good (apparently a true one)
acting was good

only downside it can be a very long and slow movie to some

If you like low budget horror with a sense of humor, you might enjoy the Tales from the Crypt TV series

>Need to seek more of them out haha
If you want recommendations for more Korean revenge films, here are a few to get you started:

>Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance

Same director as Oldboy, but a much different kind of revenge film. It's probably the bleakest and most depressing film I've ever seen in terms of tone/atmosphere and it focuses more on how revenge isn't worth it rather than constant action. I loved it but it's very slow-paced sprinkled with sudden bursts of brutal violence/torture to keep you interested. It was a little hard for me to follow plot-wise, needed to skim some online summaries to fully get it.

>I Saw The Devil

Probably the best cat and mouse revenge film ever. Super brutal violence/action, constant suspense, etc.

>The Deal

This one is more melodramatic and playful compared to the others I'm recommending, so if you want the least edgy/depressing film start here. Still edgier than most Hollywood films though.

>Bedevilled

It doesn't get much more brutal/disturbing than this. My brother was watching this with me and about halfway through he walked out of the room and said "I don't know how you enjoy this shit, dude." But good lord the climax/final revenge in the end is tremendously satisfying. This movie basically puts you through a long, grim, grueling experience and rewards you with an insane payoff at the end. Extremely emotional, if you are a parent this movie will probably crush you.

>The Man From Nowhere

This is my personal favorite movie of all time. It's edgy and brutal but not so much that it's inaccessible like some of the others, the main character is an absolute badass, it's full of action, and I almost cried at the ending because it was so powerful (I've watched it three times I think).

There's a lot more but these illustrate a good variety of the genre.

The older ones like those seem to be more well received overall. Kiki's Delivery Service looks like that might be my next shot, alongside Castle in the Sky and others.

Need to have a variety of movies on more often myself, though! So far I've made Thursday my weekly movie night, but need to expand this a little more

oh, lemme throw in Coin Locker Girl too, if you want one with a young-ish female lead (like late teens I think). Not for any lewd reason (theres almost nothing sexual at all in the movie) but because its just a good example of that kind of character taking on the role of the one who seeks revenge, in a fairly realistic way. I rewatched it last night, its really good.

Watched this last night:

After Life Movie Watch After Life Movie

Interesting "low fantasy" movie about the concept of a team of people working to recreate recently deceased people's favorite memories in the afterlife. Pretty feelsy ending.

Its almost entirely just dialogue though, so be warned. Most of the film doesn't even have music.

My one complaint is that it raises way more questions than it answers, but eh.

>>1854
I'll jot that one down for when I wanna give that genre a shot, could be a bit of fun tbh!


>>1855
Haha that's a lot of suggestions, Maybe I start with The Man From Nowhere since you seem to rec it the most and see where it goes from there!


>>1865
Kiki's is just overall a very comfy movie, but also get a little sad at some points. Though lots of Ghibli films tend to. If you want something really lighthearted and fun, Porco Rosso is often overlooked but it's pretty good in its own right

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1993

I've not watched many Korean movies myself, but have seen JSA and Steel Rain, having a prior interest in stuff like the Korean War and history between north and south.

My relative says Snowpiercer is supposed to be pretty good. It's something like a train and its' inhabitants, that keeps on going across an Earth that had transformed into an ice age.
