all things movie/film/KINO/flick etc.! Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 41988040[Last 50 Posts]

I have officially committed to watching just one film a day in addition to my regular reading. It will be a challenge, but I think I can do it. Once I genuinely commit to something, I can usually do it. It just takes willpower.

Right now it's The Tale Of Zaitochi (the original).

EDIT: well the one film a day thing sure as hell didn't work out lol

One film a day is crazy, I couldn't possibly dedicate over an hour a day to one thing consistently.

>>41988152

it's probably because I'm a weeb but the more I watch these earlier Japanese films the more I realize I just love the aesthetics and the portrayals of those time periods and people and stuff. if I think about watching modern films or western films in general I'm just like "nah that's boring."

>>41988153

I pretty much already do it with music and reading, I have a lot of free time...probably too much. but since I have that much time, I feel like exploring all these different art forms is what I want to do and important to me, on top of the more productive goals and work I do.

we'll see how one film a day pans out, but right now I'm optimistic. I had a good time with the one I watched today.

i can only speak from personal experience, but i am able to think about multiple films

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 41988187

>>41988180

By thinking about them, talking about them with people, and likely writing about them as well. Not all in the same day of course, but when it comes to art I have a habit of wanting to experience as many new things as I can without dwelling on anything in particular too often.

this unfortunately leads to me outright forgetting a lot of things I've heard or read excluding the fact that I greatly enjoyed it. so on one hand I'm getting a lot of wonderful experiences kind of rapid fire every day, but I only stop to really think critically about a select portion of them.

I know I should improve that at some point. when something truly profoundly affects me and gives me a ton to think about, that's when I think about it and discuss it long after I've experienced it. but a lot of the times I just love gorging myself on as many artistic experiences as I can.

after all, as important as thinking critically about things is, I still think subjective enjoyment of a work of art is ultimately the most important personal thing about it.

I might think differently if I was actually in school about this stuff...

i just watched this...yakuza apocalypse got a 3 out of 4 from roger ebert and i really agree with him on it. it's a wildly confusing ride that revolves around the...it's all about how the yakuza are all basically vampires and then they belabor the point by having actual vampire yakuza.

the whole film just barrels thru plot points with gleeful abandon and...it's just fun. it's hard to describe as anything else, it's takashi miike doing what he does best. it's not ichi the killer gonzo, because it's trying to ape yakuza manga's more fantastical side. there's some of...miike's weird opinions on women, but it's not enough to really put most people off. it's r rated, but most good films are.

>>41988060
do it. the zaitoichi films are all really solid. my roommates just have them on all the time, it's great.

I'm not sure I like the film being in color. I feel like having color makes it lose a certain artistic charm. After this film, I may switch to a different series.

eh, that was alright. it was kinda lame compared to the first two though. all that nonsense about Ichi giving up his samurai/yakuza life and being an "honest man" so he could get married stuff just didn't work that well for me, it seemed out of line with the tone that the previous films established.

not to mention it was even slower than the first film with much, much less of a payoff in the finale.

my fully developed adult brain capable of critical reasoning is what led me to understand Stalker as a two hour flick where three scruffy guys wander around in the wilderness throwing nuts at nothing and discussing entry level philosophy, only to finally arrive at the incredibly hyped up wish granting room, only to do nothing, only to go home. it was 2 hours where nothing happened.

I found this silent film on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aubUkD_2k4&t=63s&list=WL&index=144

...which according to wikipedia is like this disturbing art house film that was way ahead of it's time, but I'm afraid it will be too spooky. it's literally about a guy who gets a job at a mental asylum.

basically over-the-top chinese martial arts movies that often involve mysticism and fantasy stuff

Seven Swords was a great (recent) example, despite not following the book and doing poorly at the box office.

I think everyone has seen Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon by now. Unfortunately, the fan translation projects for the rest of the Crane-Iron books seem to have fizzled out.

Red Cliff is easily the best film of the last decade. Sorry, Nolan Batman and MCU.

I also recommend Warriors of Heaven and Earth.

Then there's the whole world of Hong Kong Kung Fu flicks.

I believe The Legend of Hua Mu Lan is on YT, albeit in lousy quality.

Of course, it's better than the Disney movie. It's hard to tell whether Disney pissed off China more by mangling a treasured national folk tale or by supporting the Dalai Lama.

It was actually a pretty fun movie. The special effects were absolutely terrible, but I think that gave it a certain charm. It was a nice simple story with lots of silliness and nothing super dark or edgy besides like one scene that was kinda bloody. I rate it a 6.5/10.

I watched this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqmyDZaHYso Un Chien andalou (1928), an avant-garde Spanish "silent" film that uses music from Richard Wagner. it was considered one of the most shocking films ever made for a long time but to me it seems somewhat tame by today's standards.

I also googled Japanese short films and found some things that seemed interesting like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8wp5DcW9eg&t=190s (Jujiro, avant-garde silent film) and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO-w-cn-pJM&t=27s (Patriotism, 1966, about a Lieutenant who commits seppuku with his wife after he is ordered to kill some of his allies I think).

Can recommend seeing it, though i've never read the book so that might've influenced my perception of it.

It did strike me as being a "shameless" movie though, in the sense that it doesn't hesitate to make use of all options available to a movie, whereas the current trend of movies seems to be more sober-ish.
That countercurrent stuff might be what ticks off critics, but to me it seems like a movie that has nothing to prove and just does whatever it pleases to great succes.

This weekend I am going to watch Blade Of The Immortal, which just came out this year and is Takashi Miike's 100th film.

It is also supposed to be one of his most bloody and violent yet, it is a samurai revenge story, and it is 2hr30mins long.

I'm pretty excited.

Watching Sleeping Beauty for the first time since I was a kid. I'm surprised how well the animation holds up. It's honestly much better than most shows and animes that are popular on the internet nowadays.
The only two marks I can think of is that the character animation is much more restrained than modern western animation, they don't exaggerate as much. It can make characters facial animations seem stiff at times. Their movements though are very lifelike, this is more a style than a flaw really. Everything about the animation is masterful on a technical level. The action lines are a lot less obvious than in later disney or even modern western animation. It's hard to overstate just how well the perspective is on the characters when they move even though they don't do any movements that are particularly crazy hard to animate. It lends the solid color character art an extremely lifelike quality once its in motion.

The story and characters aren't very complex but they're excellently done, the directors know what they want to do and don't fuck around when it comes to doing that.

The cinematography is fairly simple, cuts and edits can be a little primitive at times by modern standards. It's all well done though and very workmanlike. A few of the scenes use pretty interesting devices, there's a lot of class disney "action flow" which makes the more complex and high action scenes more comprehensible even than a lot of modern animation.

The music is very 50's. The voice actress for the lead was an opera singer though and she really works that. The backing music is old fashioned classical scoring but well done. Works well for the scene but nothing you'd listen to as an OVA. The musical numbers are solid as fuck though.

The biggest thing I'd rec this though for animation fans, is the background art. It's extremely unique and this film is jammed with background porn. In particular, this movie plays with the foreground elements and staging a lot in inventive ways. It's unique even by modern standards and keeps it visually very interesting for the whole run.

This is the last disney film to be entirely animated by hand and really the tail end of their golden age period. After this movie, their stuff would be a lot lower budget and generally take a lot less creative risks. A few decent films after this and Disney went into a dark age of making a bunch of forgettable bullshit until like the mid-late 80's. This movie though, it's in some ways primitive compared to modern animation(especially in scene transitions and cinematography) but is masterfully animated and even experimental is the way scenes are staged, innovative in the art direction. The character animation is in a lot of ways what cal arts animation would look like if the fundamentals were masterfully done.

>tldr

>The story's good but simple, in some ways it's a bit primitive but it's surprisingly experimental at times
>The animation on this is strictly better than 80% of anime out today and it's more visually interesting than pretty much anything modern disney does nowadays
>background art porn fucking everywhere but it could be inaccessible with its art style if you're not into what it's going for

That's because for much of the score, they basically took Tchaikovsky's ballet and added lyrics.

Ah, that makes sense then. It's very obvious in the musical scenes in Sleeping Beauty but also true of other classic disney, that the pacing and choreography is nothing like a broadway musical of the day. They're pretty much shot like ballets which gives them a different feel.

I used to watch a lot of old 50's musicals after the old folks went to sleep at the nursing home, inbetween chores and checking on them. It made me realize that the majority of people when they describe things as broadway, especially older movies, they have no idea what the features and style of a classic broadway musical are.

what other films with him would you recommend?

I really like this. even though it's kinda silly, the acting is still tight, especially from the main guy, his facial expressions are great, he's so stiff and measured and intense.

the dub I'm watching is super cheesy but it honestly adds to the charm in a way, and sometimes it's outright hilarious.

the violence is a pretty cool style, I have no idea why it's rated X because it's barely even R-rated-level graphic by today's standards, like excluding a few scenes it could probably be PG-13.

The bullfighter is a pretty good series. As well though, if you're at all watching old martial arts movies Shogun Assassin is required viewing.
They recut 2 movies into one, added entirely new dialogue and had 80's synth all over it. It should be horrible but it ends up as one of the best martial arts movies ever made. I can guarantee you've heard this movie sampled in hip-hop songs.

I've seen Shogun Assassin. It is sampled heavily in my favorite hip-hop album (GZA's Liquid Swords: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA49DaVmJWQ ).

I'm almost finished with The Street Fighter but honestly I've kind of gotten lost with the plot in the last 45 or so minutes, like I have a vague understanding of what's going on but some things are confusing me. I guess the fight scenes are what's really important though, right? Films aren't strictly about plot, there's more to it than that, and it took me a long time to learn that. There's much more to appreciate than just the narrative aspect.

the soundtrack for it is very good as well

So I watched this short film today.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jgvqFAUaG8

There's really hardly anything about it that I can find on the internet. I saw somewhere that the guy who did Midori did a film in the 80's and it took a bit of sleuthing to even track down its name.

So it's an anime short made by one guy who hand painted every frame. It has the same music style as midori which makes me really intrigued because it's not a style that I've seen in many anime. This film is a bit more uneven than Midori and has some slight pacing issues like his later film does, though Midori had about 7 minutes of it destroyed by the japanese government.

Very interesting art style and even more experimental than his later work. In contrast to it, he goes hard as fuck on the montage and interesting edit decisions. With the way he's contrasting images together to relate meanings of two very separate events to each other throughout, it reminds me of soviet montage influenced films. Quaintly old fashioned for an art film in the 80's(though this would have been cutting edge in the 40's or 50's) but a technique I've very rarely seen used in a more abstract way in anime. Visually very interesting but don't go in expecting fluid animation. This is some of the crudest animation I've ever seen put to film.

I feel like this movie has almost too many things to say in its short run time. I'd need to watch it again. Since it's making heavy use of soviet montage, I feel it'd be valuable to focus on how things are contrasted and spliced together rather than the still events themselves. A lot of things about alienation, the freak in society, progress and whatnot.

I find this film interesting largely because I've seen Midori. It explores similar themes but in a much less oblique way, there's an extreme keneticism to some of the sequences and a very in your face attitude. I feel like having watched this would make me understand midori more if I watched it a third time.

From a historical perspective, it's not surprising that this director couldn't find anyone to fund his films. Remember that this was made in a pre-eva and even pre-akira environment so experimental or transgressive anime was almost impossible to get funding for.

Would I recommend it? Not to 90% of people. This is interesting if you're into both retro anime and experimental film. It's not a great movie and I'm not certain I'd even call it good but it makes me want to hunt down more by this director. I'm not certain if he made more than two films but there's an extreme dearth of information on him in the english internet so I might uncover some more.

thank you, I will check them out

I just watched Confessions Of Murder, which is about a serial killer who writes a book confessing all of his crimes after the statute of limitations on them has expired, so he can't be arrested for it. That's the really short summary anyways, the movie is like nonstop twists, it was too over the top to really feel shocking or gritty but it was still pretty edge of your seat stuff and not taking itself seriously often worked to its benefit with really ridiculous action sequences that were admittedly entertaining as hell.

really? it was a pretty moderate hit when it came out in 2007, but i mostly watch newer movies and based on my skimming this thread you seem to have a taste for older ones. Also probably why I've never heard of the one you just watched

I don't keep up with modern movies that much, but yeah I've been digging into older stuff recently. I was really into horror movies when I was younger but not so much anymore.

since I'm a weeb I'm really interested in samurai stuff, especially older stuff, but also wuxia, Korean revenge films, and monster movies, and that's basically the extent of what I've watched lately.

I keep up with modern films very much so, still tons of newer things iv'e yet to watch, though there are tons of older films i love as well
i do enjoy horror movies a lot myself, probably one of my favorite genres, there have been some really great ones recently
i'm a huge weeb as well but i mostly just watch anime movies, i do enjoy some live action Japanese movies (mostly Horror) like Kairo, Shin Godzilla, Battle Royale, and Audition

I've seen Battle Toyale and Audition, I like those. I found Battle Royale because Tarantino said it was one of his favorite movies and honestly I'm a pretty big Tarantino fan. I know he's a pretty divisive figure though, people usually love him or hate him.

for me it's a tie between Basterds and Django. like I seriously can't even pick, they're both basically perfect films to me. there are so many scenes between those movies that just give me an absolute rush/thrill. like even just the opening scene of Basterds, the tension and suspense is insane. and both movies have wonderful satisfying finales. despite being nearly three hours long each, I feel like that runtime is absolutely justified.

I also really like Kill Bill Vol. 1 (Vol. 2 not quite as much, although it has some good scenes), and Reservoir Dogs and of course Pulp Fiction. The Hateful Eight is pretty solid, and while I think Jackie Brown is on the weaker side, it's still decent. It's his "normal" film basically.

>>42007559
it's probably Django for me, it's so much fun and really brutal at the same time, plus the soundtrack is GOTY tier and Django is one of the best badass characters in modern cinema it also helps that Leonardo DiCaprio is having an absolute ball chewing the scene as Candi and Christov waltz gives his usual phenomenal performance, it's just an all around phenomenally made film

yeah, Tarantino always manages to score great actors and soundtracks, it will be interesting to see what direction he goes in next.

there are still a ton of directors who are considered legendary that I have barely watched or not watched at all, like Kubrick as Admiral pointed out earlier. I'm also interested in Lars Von Trier.

Im sitting in the theater for Phantom Thread :D

there was a trailer for Isle Of Dogs which looks REALLY good, the animation style is so creepy and surreal yet so interesting and engaging and the story seems like a pretty unique concept, a very dark twist on the conventional "animated talking animals" kinds of movies.

Chewy +Element Of Fortitude+!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42013240

holy shit that was so good

Chewy +Element Of Fortitude+!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42013254

okay fuck it, I'm gonna do a lil review of the movie. spoilers will be hidden under spoiler tags, so be warned.

Phantom Thread really is unlike any other movie I've seen. It's hard to even classify, technically it's a romance/drama but it's so different than what I usually think of as "romance" that I'm not even sure you can truly call it a romance (of course, maybe I just haven't seen enough romances to compare it to).

it would have absolutely bored the shit out of me when I was a kid/teen. all of its weight lies in its emotional and atmospheric depth rather than any major action or horror or comedy. there's a certain tension to it, but it's not necessarily a suspenseful kind of tension, it's like a persistent tension.

it's a very slow film and every scene seems to carry importance. some crucial aspects of the story/characters are conveyed entirely through the facial expressions, body language, or music of a scene rather than anything that is explicitly said. it's a film where every detail matters to gather the full "feel" of everything.

in terms of emotion, I would call it a very bittersweet film. and it also has this strong ghostliness to it, not a horror movie or supernatural kind of ghostliness but just this feeling that you're watching something that mirrors our world but is ripped out of another dimension almost, there's a vague surreal-ness to its depiction of reality. but that said it is still a realistic movie, there's nothing in it that couldn't actually feasibly happen in the real world.

considering it has the same big-name trio (PTA for directing, Daniel Day-Lewis for lead actor, Johnny Greenwood for soundtrack) as There Will Be Blood, it is a remarkably different film in almost every way. aesthetically, thematically, emotionally, etc. I would say that There Will Be Blood probably edges out in terms of cinematography, there is an epicness to its scale that isn't captured the same way in Phantom Thread, but I think Phantom Thread has the better music.

Johnny Greenwood is immensely talented and as a huge fan of Radiohead it is easy to see how his classically trained skill plays into the masterful poppier albums of Radiohead. he is a genuine composer in a way that most rock artists, even great ones, aren't.

as far as the plot goes, it's hard to say anything about it that wouldn't be a spoiler in some way. I went in completely blind and I think that's how everyone should. that said, I'll give a brief summary here: the film is basically about a relationship that works and doesn't work at the same time, and the ups and downs of the relationship, generally in relation to the dressmaking work Day-Lewis' character lives for, and all I really want to say is that the final ending is VERY bizarre and not at all what I was expecting, I don't think anyone would really expect it honestly.

it is also the most tame R-rated movie I have ever seen in my life. literally the only reason its rated R is because they say "fuck" a few times. there is not a single scene of violence, sex, drug use, etc. honestly it's pretty lame how that even qualifies for an R-rating these days. you need to be 18 to hear the word "fuck" maybe five times in a two-hour film like wtf.

the last thing I want to comment on, and this is a significant spoiler that is strictly for anyone who has seen it: my favorite scene in the whole film is when Day-Lewis' character is sick in bed after his love interest poisons him for the first time and we see him hallucinating the ghost of his dead mother in the dress that he made for her wedding, and he comments on the scene out loud, saying something along the lines of "Have you always been there? I feel like you speak but I don't hear you. I miss you...that's really all it is, I miss you so much. Every night I dream of you and wake up in tears." that scene was enormously powerful in the context of the film and gives some insight into the character that you don't get until that point.

9/10, best modern movie I've seen in a long ass time.

>>42013179

so something that went over my head about Phantom Thread, that I didn't realize until someone on /mu/ pointed it out to me, (BIG SPOILERS INCOMING) was the theme of the MC's mother complex. Except, in the case of this movie, it wasn't so much a sexual thing as it was just that the MC could only really enjoy his relationship/marriage to the main woman when she was taking care of him as though he was a kid, which is why in the very end he consented to letting her poison him multiple times so he could become SO sick that he literally NEEDED her to take care of him, and that whole experience would basically refresh the relationship.

that revelation makes the ending make more sense but also makes it more bizarre.

Am I the only one who's legit really hyped for Isle Of Dogs?

The stopmotion in the trailers just looks so cool and there's this really creepy yet at the same time cool vibe that everything gives off.

Plus it has Bryan Cranston as a VA, and some critics are talking about how it shows off Wes Anderson's love of Japan which ignites the weeb in me.

so, I wanted to see Death Wish because even though >16% on RT, based Armond White gave it a moderately positive review, and it seems like the film is catching a lot of flak for, let's just say, some certain political reasons that I'm not gonna bring into this thread. but I mean, it's Bruce Willis and it's hardcore action/revenge, how bad can it really be?

my mom wanted to see Red Sparrow until I told her how much criticism it was getting for excessive violence/torture and sex, as well as bad chemistry between the lead actors, overly complicated plot, too long of a runtime etc.

So I watched Akira Kurosawa's 'Dreams' at the recommendation of Admiral, which is actually a collection of short films rather than a full-length movie, and imo it was a pretty mixed bag.

I thought the opening part was good but at the same time pretty cheesy and heavy-handed with its message about nature being sacred and what not. Seeing all the people in costume dance and do their rituals to the really good gagaku-style music was pretty captivating, though.

My favorite of all the sections was probably the Tunnel one (I think it was just called The Tunnel). That one was genuinely powerful and sad and I feel like it did a lot with a little which was cool. It was an interesting concept.

My second-favorite was the one about Mt. Fuji. That one was also very powerful, although it wasn't quite as genuinely grim as The Tunnel, at least to me. The part with the demons writing in pain was actually pretty disturbing.

Some of the parts that I felt lukewarm about were the one with the people hiking through the brutal snowstorm most likely expecting to die, and also the one about painting with the famous artist (can't remember if it was Van Gogh or Picasso). Also the last part with the water mills was a decent way to end the film.

The rest of it I don't even remember that well so that means it probably wasn't great. I feel like it's a hard film to give a regular score/critique of because it's so all-over-the-place in terms of style/subject. If it was just the best parts, it would be a solid 8/10, but as a whole it's more like a 6.5-7.

side note: I can't believe it's only rated PG!! it wasn't super graphic but thematically I honestly feel like it reached R-rated levels. I mean there was a scene where someone tells a child to commit suicide with a sword (harakiri or whatever), and there was a scene where these people are screaming and crying about how these kids are probably going to die from nuclear radiation, and then of course like I mentioned there was the stuff with the demons...

I actually googled to see if the PG-13 rating had been invented by the year the movie released (1990) and it had and I was just like what the fuck, like how does this not get at least a PG-13 rating when shit like Spiderman gets it, you know?

Not sure how I feel about this. Without Lynne Thigpen around for at least a cameo?

At the very least, they'd damn well better bring Rockapella in. They're still active, I think.

Watching the Opera Australia Pirates of Penzance. While the Kevin Kline version is generally considered definitive, Anthony Warlow smokes it.

It's become a fad to play the Pirate King ala. Jack Sparrow and he does a brilliant job imitating Depp's mannerisms and dialog inflections.

Sad that both the Kline and Warlow versions cut out the "Are you thespians?" gag.

That's one thing Essgee did better than most. Essgee with their Moog orchestras and over-reliance on slapstick gags.

Also, after Tony Azito, the police sergeant in this one is underwhelming, even though it's more accurate to the original score where the sergeant was written for a baritone.

1 month until Fahrenheit 451.

The irony of trying to make a movie of it is rather thick and obvious. It's not about censorship so much as it's about the decline of literacy in favor of shallow mass-entertainment. That is to say, it's more akin to The Running Man with society built on "reality TV" than to 1984's Ministry of Truth.

i saw hellbound: hellraiser 2 last night. it was actually really good, i liked it a bit more than hellraiser 1. the film's vision of hell was really cool, and having more expanded lore on the cenobites is also cool. i like how my theory of the cenobites being these sort of...avatars of extreme hedonism turned out to be right on the money. like...all of the people who we see getting turned into or are currently cenobites have either sadistic or masochistic tendencies, so the pain element is ramped up for the fiction. i feel like other cenobites must exist who aren't as cranially kinky as pinhead or the channard cenobite, though knowing it's a clive barker universe i'm pretty sure that every single cenobite looks like they walked out of a kink club.

the plot was...okay, it allowed you to explore the universe more and it's cool to see kirsty...at least attempting to keep a handle on herself while also making sure that no horrors from the kink dimension don't leak into the real world. like...i do need to shout out kirsty a bit, because she's gone through this shit before and yet she flings herself back into hell just because she thinks her dad is trapped there. also she manages to out-think a lot of the people in the plot, so she's always kinda in control of her situation. she's a pretty well written strong female protagonist while not falling into any of the clichés that the term usually comes with.

finally, the other thing that really stood out to me was leviathan, the god of the deep. the humming that translates to god in morse-code is a clever little touch, but it's weird black...trauma beam for lack of a better term is just...so weird and i think it speaks a bit to how clive barker views the world. also i...i dunno but for a horror movie made in the late 80s, i think the effects all still hold up decently. like, leviathan looks cheap, but he could have been shit-awful really easily. speaking of effects, all of the practical gore and make-up effects are incredibly on-point. like, the skinless version of julia is a really amazing full-body make-up that sits on this fantastic edge between grotesque and beautiful. i know that sounds a little creepy, but the sheer attention to detail with all the muscle groups and tendons in the make-up is really beautiful, it's got this medical accuracy to it that's stunning.

all in all, i'd say the film is a 7.25 out of 10. it had its flaws, like how the movie really feels like the victim of constant budget cuts, the way the ending resolves which is retarded as fuck, or the fact that the writing is really inconsistent quality-wise. like, it feels a bit like the version of the story that we got was at least two different things before it became the finished product. learning a bit about the production history sorta confirmed those feelings, but all in all the finished product manages to have an identity all of it's own.

*edit*

>>42037703
hah, i mean, the movie did well and clive barker was attached to at least the other two. also i dunno, but i liked how the cosmology was expanded upon. it felt less like a cash-grab and more like an expansion of the lore, so in terms of sequels i think it's worthy.

i mean, i've yet to actually read the hellbound heart, mostly because it's ground-zero for a bunch splatter-punk tropes and i don't really fuck with splatter-punk. i feel like the movie is as close to the work as i'd like to get. there were hard rape vibes in the first movie, my guts churn at how the book would handle that.

i wouldn't put it past clive barker to have a skinless jack rape kirsty, or like...a bunch of other weird sado-masochistic stuff happen partially against her will. clive is very much a psycho-sexual horror writer and...well, he shows some restraint than some but he's still...well a horror writer.

speaking of Hellraiser, I binge downloaded a shitload of James Ferraro projects and among them was this 34-minute movie called Pinhead In Fantasia.

it was a fucking trip, the whole thing was slow-moving creepy psychedelic imagery, with no dialogue, only instrumental/electronic music (which I'm assuming Ferraro composed).

Dragnet Girl - Film Noir Japan (Full Movie)

Dragnet Girl. 1920s silent gangster film.

I showed Mac my playlist of full movies and he judged this one to likely be among the most focused on cinematography rather than plot, for some interesting reasons, so I'm rollin' with it.

I put on my own music to go with it, according to wikipedia, it would general be accompanied with piano, violin and drums, but I settled for this: Elliot Carter Cello Sonata: Andrew Rosenblum and Sam Ericsson

It's...interesting so far, I guess? Not sure what to make of it since there are no subtitles so I have virtually no idea what's going on lol.

I watched Karate Warriors with Mac: Karate Warriors (1976)

was a pretty fun campy action grindhouse flick. definitely had a few scenes that were in, uh, poor taste, but, I guess that's grindhouse for you.

I also watched this short film: 大河内傳次郎 剣戟名場面

which is really great, it must be old, and it had a lot of variety in scenery, and plenty of action, etc., however I'm struggling to even figure out what it's called.

Sometimes remakes supersede the original. Usually it being so good people can't fathom any possible way it's not an original concept.

so my roommates and i are doing a double bill right now. we watched manos: the hands of fate, and the pregnant pauses in that movie could fill a maternity ward.

like, it's not...a lot has already been said about it, but i'm impressed at how dull and not scary it was. like, the movie was made on a bet that the director could make a horror movie, and i hope he lost that bet. like, the husband is horrifying with how much of a bad dad and husband he is; and i guess like...the bad cinematography is also pretty horrifying? the doberman and the poodle were my favorite parts, though i mean torgo is sorta funny and it's entirely obvious he's fucked up(apparently he was high on acid the whole time). him being a total creeper was...i guess part of the horror? anyway, it's a shitty movie but great when you've got friends and alcohol.

the second movie we watched was livid and it's a much better movie. it's in the style of new french extremity, while not having the garish excess of movies like inside and haute tension. it's very quiet and claustrophobic, it has some interesting ideas, and...well i can't quite tell how good the writing is because the copy of the movie we have is a bootleg. like, i was translating the movie for my roommates and was doing a better job than the subs. these subs had german words out of nowhere in it btws, so obvs i was a better translator.

it's a cool movie, but it's not fantastic, i'd rate it a 6/10. it's fun to discuss afterward, which is half of the fun to be had with it.

me and Mac watched this: Samurai Sword Princess Gore Movie

it's like a super cheesy action anime infused with horror comedy elements and with the violence/gore ratcheted up to 11

it is sooo disgusting but disgusting in ways that are so comical and campy and cartoonish that you can't help but laugh at it.

So, the remake of das Boot is finished filming and expected to premier before the end of this year. Clocking in at close to 8 hours. (The uncut original is 5).

People should see the original if they haven't already. And avoid reading any wiki pages or synopses, so the unexpected kick-in-the-gut ending has full effect.

my roommates kinda sprung touch of evil on me. it's...good but...at the same time it just shows how sheltered orson wells was when he made that movie. like...everything is amped up to 11, and it's just...ultra noire for it's own sake. it's being remarkably edgy for a 1958 film and it feels like it's being edgy just because.

it's weird, because i'm usually a noire person. i adore detective stories, but this movie was just a little bit too ugly and cynical for me.

No one replied to my thread about it a few days ago, so I'll post it here:

WARNING: HUGE SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE 'SEARCHING'

I just got back from the theater seeing 'Searching', was curious if anyone else here knows of the film? Doesn't seem like there's a ton of hype about it, although it did get very positive reviews, and I can say with good reason, now that I've seen it.

It had a unique twist on the whole found footage format in the sense of, rather than a continuous camera "recording", the film's story was told through the feed of computer screens (a lot of it involving facetime videos), as well as news footage later in the film, and hidden cameras in one particularly clever scene.

it just felt like a really unique viewing experience that elevated it above being just another mystery/thriller movie, and on top of that, I like the angle it took with the protagonist being a single father who doesn't have a love interest, there was no shoehorned romance and I feel like single fathers (being portrayed in a positive light) are somewhat underrated these days.

The acting was totally solid, I found it convincing, it didn't feel over-acted or cheesy. when the film first started I was thinking "this is just gonna keep trying to be a heartstring tugger, huh" but once it got past the beginning the storytelling just got really brilliant honestly.

There were definitely a lot of things that weren't realistic, and a couple holes you could poke in how the plot developed, but overall it was really well-constructed with constant suspense and twists and fakeouts with how it would all end, until you get to the ending that I didn't see coming at all where BIGGEST SPOILERS OF THE ENTIRE FILM HERE BTW the MC's daughter is finally found, and she survives, and there's basically a happy ending.

there's a lot to unpack in this film in regards to parenting, loss, how the internet allows people to live different lives, etc.

one more thing, I was worried it would be boring because it was a crime film that was rated PG-13 but it was actually able to have a compelling narrative with only a tiny amount of violence or explicit content which I find commendable, it made you feel through the emotions of the characters and the mystery of the story rather than graphic violence, profanity, drugs etc.

Saw Heat yesterday and god...what a movie. It's easy to see the sort of influence and impact it had on other media, especially with the heists themselves and the way they are set-up. Just a real damn good film. After this and Manhunter, I am definitely watching the rest of Michael Mann's filmography.

I'll probably watch Taxi Driver tommorow for my next movie...or Possession...or Memories of Murder...or maybe a western. Too many choices.

>>42060337
>Memories of Murder

I want to watch that, it seems well-respected as part of the Korean revenge/crime/mystery etc. canon, and I LOVE that shit.

I just watched Mandy and it was pretty good. The entire first half was like this super slow-paced setup for the second half to be all-out extreme violence revenge from Nicholas Cage and it was great. The lighting/color palette, vocal distortions, frequent slow-motion shots, were all used for considerable psychedelic effect. The revenge kills/fights were very satisfying, exactly the kind of brutal animalistic shit I love in revenge films.

Nicholas Cage gets shit on by a lot of people but honestly I think he is really a great actor who just gets put in a lot of shit films. A film like this really brings out his potential as a "serious" actor. His facial expressions and shouts of rage were just perfect, in fact I think he probably shouted wordlessly in pain or anger more than he actually spoke in the film. SPOILERS: The scene after he escapes being bound and gagged by barb wire after witnessing his wife being burned alive in front of him, and he goes into his bathroom in his underwear and takes a bottle of alcohol and drinks it and inbetween drinking he just screams, and then he starts pouring it on his wounds and screams more until he finally nearly collapses and just sits down and breathes heavily, that was just really fucking great acting.
Then there's the finale where he just stares menacingly at the final villain who is terrified of him and saying he can offer him salvation and as the lights flicker on and off Cage moves closer until the villain is in tears and going as far as to say that he will give Cage a blowjob if he spares him and then Cage just crushes his face inwards with his bare hands after saying "I am your god now" it was just like DAMN.


also a few people are recommending that I see The Nun instead of The Predator. Both of them got shit on hard by critics but The Predator at least sounds much more appealing to me.

today we watched The Inspector Wears Skirts which we thought was gonna be an action movie but turned out to be 2% action and 98% awkward high-school drama except in the context of a special forces training camp instead of an actual school. In the 80s. With rollerblading and disco.

And every Japanese character had a western name and basically wore American clothes for some reason. So yeah it wasn't what we expected, but it was still pretty fun.

To give you an example of how ridiculous the movie gets, at one point the main character's arm gets cut open and his tendon is severed, so he digs it out with his teeth, ties his tendons back together and continues fighting.

And that's one of the more passive scenes in the movie.

decided to axe the other thread and just post about it here:

I saw Bad Times At The El Royale at the theater tonight.

I didn't really have much expectations because I went into it barely knowing anything about it, but I was hugely impressed.

the critics who have compared it to Tarantino's style aren't wrong honestly.

it started off with the viewer not knowing anything about anyone and things not really making sense, but then the tension/suspense slowly builds and builds and the mysteries unravel and intertwine and then you just have one of the most intense endings ever--I would say shocking, almost.

I saw 'Widows' at the theater today. Pretty good movie.

It managed to do female (and minority) empowerment without feeling completely forced or unrealistic.

It wasn't a movie where badass hotties take on swaths of thugs with machine guns and knives or whatever, it was a movie that felt like it had a very human aspect to it, a blend of portraying vulnerability and desperation in the main characters but also motivation and courage. Most women (might be) physically weaker than most men, but I'll say this much, even the toughest men are still weak to a woman confidently pointing a gun.

The acting was top notch, especially Liam Neeson who is always great (even though he only played a small supporting role for once), and Viola Davis as Veronica Rowlings (whose intense, almost cold seriousness I found particularly compelling). Elizabeth Debicki as Alice Gunner also did a good job portraying a somewhat ditzy woman who still had guts and brains when it really mattered.

Almost all of the characters came from different walks of life, and some of them had development that radically changed how I viewed them by the end of the film, some in subtle ways, one in a much more "Holy shit did they actually just do that??" kind of way.

There was some pretty poignant social/political commentary scenes but it wasn't stuffed into the movie so much that it felt heavy-handed, I would not call it a political movie, it merely had some scenes that really exemplified some fucked up aspects of, I'll just say, the way the world and people are socially.

There was action and violence but it wasn't really the focus of the movie, I would call it much more of a thriller/drama than an action movie. But to be fair there were some pretty brutal scenes, one that was almost slightly hard to watch (it essentially involved the villain torturing a handicapped person) but I think these scenes were not in excess, they did a really good job driving home just how twisted the main bad guys are.

If I have any complaints, its that there were some parts of the plot that probably could have been cut to make it a shorter, slicker film, I did get bored during the less interesting character arch scenes.

Also, I think that the way one of the characters, let's say...meets their fate, felt super anti-climactic, had me kinda thinking "What? That's it?" but this wasn't the kind of movie that ended with some gigantic shootout or something.

I rate it a 7.5/10.

Finally saw Soylent Green. It's a neat movie, and knowing the spoiler really didn't change my enjoyment of the film.

Watching Charlton Heston's character just come to the crushing realization that Soylent Green is people Is kinda neat to watch. Seeing people riot over Soylent, seeing bow awfully crowded everything is, it's like the entire movie is all about just slowly peeling this horrid Band-Aid off until you hit the realization that Soylent Green is people.

The film even let's you infer what Soylent Green is in the factory, Charlton Heston 's final famous final line is more a kind of despairing shriek than any kind of revelation. The direction is really tight, the pacing is really solid and everything just kinda falls into place like horrid Jenga pieces. It's worth a watch, mostly if you wanna see some 70s high concept sci-fi.

It's pretty misogynistic, but part of that comes from things just being so abjectly shitty that some women are reduced to furniture. I still have to mention it since like...well it's just staring me in the face. It's not bad because of it, but if you wanna see actual objectification in cinema, this is it. It's very educational in that regard. Like...in general Soylent Green is a good movie if you wanna learn about film theory. Like, I've taken classes on film theory and Soylent Green is great for teaching the basics of film theory.

The film wasn't about being realistic though. It was a piece of high concept 70s sci-fi, it's about metaphors and using those metaphors to talk about real world issues. Tactical realism doesn't apply to a lot of them.

If it was, the "Scoops" would have to be a bit more effective than skip-loaders. No one would actually be trapped in those things and that they are gives the whole thing a truly surreal darkness that realistic effects couldn't accomplish.

I found this great film reviewer on youtube, just happened to show up in my recs.

This is him tearing apart the Netflix adaptation of Death Note, which I found to be very well-done and entertaining: Netflix's DEATH NOTE Is Appalling

The thing I like about his videos is that he isn't just screaming and being overly-dramatic or attempting super cringey jokes constantly like most "reviewers" often do.

He talks a in a very calm, but still enthusiastic, manner, and goes into a lot of depth/detail with his critiques (or praise).

I saw Cold Pursuit with Liam Neeson in theaters a couple days ago. Controversy over his recent statements which to my understanding have been catching flak due to being taken waaay out of context, but whatever aside, I still think he's a fantastic actor, and the movie delivered on being exactly the kind of brutal, dark revenge/thriller/mystery etc. film I hoped it would be.

It was a completely by-the-numbers revenge flick, you more or less know how it's gonna go down as soon as the first death happens, but it's exactly what I look for. Just intense, bloody, "kill em all" style revenge, with some decent twists as well. Certainly nothing to revolutionize the genre, though.

I watched this Netflix original film called 'Polar' with my brother. It is basically John Wick but on a lower budget, with worse acting, more violence, and way more trashy/comical. It was fantastic!
It had some of the most brutal torture sequences I've ever seen in a film, but the final revenge payoff was well worth it and several of the action scenes were genuinely thrilling and brilliant. Plenty of nudity/sex too.
There was only one scene that I felt went too far, that involved the killing of an animal. But it was otherwise a 9/10 film in terms of sheer fun.
But don't watch it if you have a weak stomach!

I heard about this and it's sad that people are taking the entire thing out of context.

He was explaining it as "I had a moment of weakness, where I let emotions cloud my judgement." which can happen to anyone at any time. The fact that he recognized it and snapped himself out of it and says, "This is wrong, do not let the same thing happen to you." is a good message. Unfortunately everyone is deaf to it and just wants to scream "Wasist!!"

We watched Dawn Of The Dead (1978) (Extra Long Version)
2h34mins of zombie action, horror, and even comedy to a surprising extent.
It was great! Admittedly some scenes felt indulgent, and you can understand why the standard version was trimmed down considerably, but it was just very enjoyable and fun and well-made, and occasionally pretty gross.
The special effects are extremely dated and its amusing to think that this was considered shocking when it first came out.
