First thread >>2278

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

Just saw this recently.
Very good movie. Strongly recommend Grace-chan to watch it as well.

I'm going to write a movie review and try to get my local trot organization to sponsor it.


wonka was nice and wholesome
also fun fact, the only previous acting credit in a feature film that the actor for noodle had was the day shall come by chris morris lol


had heard about some indian blockbusters being pretty based, so I watched jawan last night
its pretty cool, the good guys are robinhood terrorists that want the hospitals to get funded and defend the small farmers plight, and the action is fun


just watched Brazil
most of it was amazing
the romance was shitty and less developed than anakin and padme


my mother made me watch the first one. basically this copypasta but a movie

A liberal muslim homosexual ACLU lawyer professor and abortion doctor was teaching a class on Karl Marx, known atheist

”Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Marx and accept that he was the most highly-evolved being the world has ever known, even greater than Jesus Christ!”

At this moment, a brave, patriotic, pro-life Navy SEAL champion who had served 1500 tours of duty and understood the necessity of war and fully supported all military decision made by the United States stood up and held up a rock.

”How old is this rock, pinhead?”

The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied “4.6 billion years, you stupid Christian”

”Wrong. It’s been 5,000 years since God created it. If it was 4.6 billion years old and evolution, as you say, is real… then it should be an animal now”

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of Origin of the Species. He stormed out of the room crying those liberal crocodile tears. The same tears liberals cry for the “poor” (who today live in such luxury that most own refrigerators) when they jealously try to claw justly earned wealth from the deserving job creators. There is no doubt that at this point our professor, DeShawn Washington, wished he had pulled himself up by his bootstraps and become more than a sophist liberal professor. He wished so much that he had a gun to shoot himself from embarrassment, but he himself had petitioned against them!

The students applauded and all registered Republican that day and accepted Jesus as their lord and savior. An eagle named “Small Government” flew into the room and perched atop the American Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. The pledge of allegiance was read several times, and God himself showed up and enacted a flat tax rate across the country.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of the gay plague AIDS and was tossed into the lake of fire for all eternity.

Semper Fi.




it was alright.
towards the end i was kinda getting afraid that the movie would just end with mads mikkelsen being happy, having sigma-male grindset-ed his way up the feudal system. i was pleasantly surprised it didn't.


I mean I think the fact that the romance is a shallow fantasy was part of the point

oh I completely forgot I posted that

they're coming out with a fifth one! and you better believe I'm gonna watch the whole series again in one sitting on some kind of substance, like God intended

the first one is pretty fucking funny because it was made during a more innocent time in amerikan culture/politics where reaction was pretty much the status quo (it still more or less is, but it's at least not very acceptable anymore to be openly like "total homo death" in mass media). like, it comes from a place of extremely smug self-assurance where the people making the movie don't feel threatened really by the status quo, but they still have to put on a performative persecution complex thing, because that's part of the Evangelical rhetoric. it's kind of like r/atheism tier debatebro bullshit and it all exists safely in the university system, from the perspective of the film.

as the series goes on though, you can really see how the culture begins to shift through the 2010s. the films become increasingly paranoid, where the threat of degeneracy is no longer merely preying on young people in universities, but then it starts being in elementary schools (teachers can't be Christians!), to then the existence of churches themselves (they're burning down churches!), and then by the fourth one it's just fully in this absolutely hysterical conservatard mindset that that SJWs who "identify as self-partnered" (literally a line in the film) are coming to kick down your door and force your kids to be indoctrinated in the public school system if you try to homeschool them. by the end it started to get somewhat disturbing honestly.

also the DXM was fun. I ended up accidentally doing way too much on a weeknight and was hallucinating almost 24 hours afterwards, had been listening to Soviet marching music so once the peak started I just had "И вновь продолжается бой!" playing on my head on repeat rapidly. felt like the goddamn October Revolution to manage to stop freaking out on the bathroom floor.

I'm just a masochist honestly and like watching movies that have like no entertainment value in themselves just to make it into a test of endurance. the other night I watched pic related too blazed to remember what the fuck even happened in it (which is the only way to watch that movie)

see my above comments. you need to watch the whole series to really get the full picture of how conservatism in the US has really over the past decade gone increasingly mask off. though it hits differently for me because I also grew up around Evangelicals and know what they're like.

Everything is movies.

A phd is writing a book on Zardoz relating it to current themes pushed by Musk and Thiel and the rest. He has a luddite take that sounded extremely interesting on The Russians podcast. Or maybe he's just cashing to pay for his cabin in the woods.


*cashing in


kek just saw this randomly


the absolute state of western "culture"


>there is a race war between robots from outer space that resemble cars and they have decided to fight their next battle on planet earth. this is the 8th time this happens


Jazz was a mistake


Saw Napoleon, wow, it really was bad, not even that entertainingly bad, I don't even recommend anyone to see it.


Tony Scott > Riddley, I think we've all known this for a while

Watched The Artifice Girl, very good indie
sci-fi flick with a low budget but a good concept. One of the smarter movies about AI. The girl actor who played the AI was killing it, I hope she has a nice career in front of her.


I was hoping it's kino, but thought as much.


Probably only Dune worth watching. Also, LotR SEVEN?!

It seems like the only movie worth watching are indie movies. For the big productions, it looks like TV shows surpassed them in quality. I look forward to HotD season 2 more an any of this garbage now the war has started, could be kino if they don't screw up.


The whole concept (based on toys) is so fucking silly it's suprsing that franchise has fans, although I guess many watch it to make fun of it

Same with Fast and Furious, who actually watches this outside of plane rides and when the bus driver puts it on screen (muted!)


Watched Priscilla which is a movie about how Elvis was a pedo groomer. Jacob Elordi isn't really convincing as Elvis at all. It's maybe only tentatively there in the chin and the doe eyes. The dramatization of Priscilla also isn't that compelling, she's just a 14-year-old middle class girl that generically falls in love with a rich guy and is just a victim throughout which at least is accurate I guess. Overall, it's just a boring Wikipedia dramatization of one of the less interesting aspects of Elvis' dreary life.

Just watched a horror-comedy called Deadstream, and I really enjoyed it. It's about a clout-chasing streamer trying to win his audience back after being cancelled by going into a haunted house.
It has major Evil Dead 2 vibes. I'm pretty sure all the effects are practical; the Prosthetics aren't quite as good as Evil Dead 2, of course, but they're still pretty damn good when they're used right (it may have something to do with the fact that this is shot digitally in HD, so it's hard to hide anything), and I found myself chuckling at numerous points throughout due to the slapstick and some funny lines here and there. Some very effective jumpscares, too. It's found footage, but it really works well in this context - the filmakers utilised the premise very cleverly.
Would definitely recommend

hey remember that family film where the whole main cast goes to hell for being liberals?


TS4 makes you wish they just went into that fire at the end of TS3.


I honestly didn't know/remember there was a 4 until I was reading about 3 before downloading it. Apparently it had very good critical ratings, but 3 seemed like a perfect place to leave it.

Each Toy Story movie just gets creepier and creepier. The first movie was already weird and creepy if you really think about the premise and logic of it, but then every movie they stretch that premise it starts feeling more and more nightmarish.


File: 1707734374549.png (287.71 KB, 1442x1248, ClipboardImage.png)

The original premise:
"Imagine a world where toys are sentient beings"
Ok been done many times before. But the difference is over the course of four movies they really flesh it out and show you how horrifying and depressing and the existentialist dread you would get if you were them.


File: 1707734716650.png (3.41 MB, 3126x2157, ClipboardImage.png)

Like they showed them going into the incinerator. I bet in the next one they'll have the gang get buried alive in a landfill and be perpetually alive in that forever dark. Never dying because they don't need to breathe or eat. Always sentient and trapped in that darkness.


I have no batteries and I must scream


I watched Poor Things and it was extremely good, I dunno what to make of it. Something about sex being good I guess.


Does the Dean know you're posting here Steve

Just watched these three bad boys. All kino


>Tumblr lobotomy patient remix of Teorema

This sounds insufferable and fascinating at the same time and now I actually want to watch it


I liked the parts where they were ghey to each other. It wasn't bad, just average which is even worse of a "sin" tbh.


File: 1708606232472.png (197.81 KB, 259x387, ClipboardImage.png)

It was fun? I guess?


Memories is great. I especially like the first storyline


The first one is the best but the second is far funnier now than it was when I was an edgy teen

Films I watched on my holiday and what I thought.

The Zone of Interest - 6/10
I get what they were going for but I personally felt it was a bit stale, and the 'looming horror of the holocaust' is a bit cliché by this point IMO.

Saltburn - 8/10
Quite a silly movie, but it had decent 'vibes' and the soundtrack was a lot of fun for a Brit who grew up in that era. Kinda recommend.

The Way (2024) - 2/10
Not actually a movie but I just wanted to say, it's so fucking bad. Don't watch it.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer - 4/10
I feel sort of bad giving this such a bad review because it's a horror and I don't like horror, but I wasn't aware of that when my BF picked it. I still think even if you liked horror you would find this kinda boring. Similarly to Zone of Interest I really am feeling tired of the 'atmosphere of dread' trope that so many filmmakers run with, it just feels lazy.

Past Lives (2023) - 6/10
Unremarkable and kinda dull, I respected it kinda for its portrayal of healthy and real-feeling modern relationships though.

Anatomy of a Fall - 8/10
Some really great performances, I enjoyed it a lot and I recommend it, my main criticism is that it felt a bit on the nose at times, I especially disliked the skinhead prosecutor character who felt like a caricature.

Beau is Afraid - 5/10
Some funny scenes in this, some good performances in this, but overall, it felt like a mess and like Ari Aster was just jacking off on the film, this Freudian shit is pretty weak, it's not the 30s anymore. I think there was a good movie in here trying to get out but it needed an editor and someone to tell the director when to stop just being weird and nonsensical.

Close (2022) - 7/10
Pretty well acted, but I felt it kind of meandered and came to a kinda weak conclusion, also just kind of depressing.

Minari - 8/10
Not an exceptional movie by any means but solidly put together and watchable, it felt pretty heartfelt and the characters were pretty fun. Recommend if you're in a schmaltzy mood.

Snowpiercer - 7/10
Had a good and left wing message but it was a lot sillier than I was expecting, it reminded me quite a bit of Equilibrium (which is a fun movie but not exactly a good one). But it wasn't bad, I think I would have given it another star if I liked the ending better but it just felt bleak to me.

Sing (2016) - 6/10
I only watched this while my BF was cooking and stuff, it was alright, it's an alright furry movie.

Sing 2 (2021) - 5/10
Felt weaker than the first, it tried to do more and have grander stakes but ended up feeling less than the first movie.

Half of these were A24 movies, I guess my boyfriend has a type since he picked almost all of them, but I guess it's also due to the writers strike as well. Well let me know what you think.


>I really am feeling tired of the 'atmosphere of dread' trope that so many filmmakers run with, it just feels lazy.

That's…. been around forever, anon. It's literally as old as cinema


Obviously I'm not saying this is a new idea but I notice more and more filmmakers outside the horror genre are trying to make it the centerpiece of their films and I don't like it, as I said it feels lazy to me, unease is pretty much the easiest emotion to invoke.



I don't think it's lazy at all. Unease is a real thing that everyone deals with, it's a basic human emotion that underlies a lot of the negative aspects of the human experience. I think it's perfectly legitimate to evoke it outside of horror. I don't think it's lazy, I think it's just a matter of it being a style of filmmaking that just isn't your thing, and hey, not everything floats everybody's boat.

I personally love it - I've suffered from anxiety disorder my whole life, and it's kind of cathartic and engaging to see art "get" it in a way that's aesthetically pleasing.

>I notice more and more filmmakers outside the horror genre are trying to make it the centerpiece of their films

But this is what I mean. Filmmakers outside of horror have been doing it for ages - just look at Ingmar Bergman movies or neo-noir thrillers from the 70s. It never really stopped, you see it in movies from every decade. It sounds like you're just now becoming aware of it for the first time tbh.

I don't mean to sound patronizing, but basically what I'm trying to say it that when you watch enough movies, you realize that a whole lot of shit that you previously thought was new when you were younger is actually old as dirt and never stopped being a thing. Take the whole minimalistic, starkly colored and lit neo-noir aesthetic that people commonly associate with the 80s and 2010s. The reality is that's an old trope - people were doing that for ages. A lot that kind of style that people commonly associate with those eras really has its roots in the color cinematography of arthouse, noir and horror flicks of the 60s and 70s, and once you notice it, again, you realize it never really went away - just look at how much you see its visual hallmarks in the thrillers and music videos of the Y2K era. (obvious example being something like The Matrix)


Just watched solaris. It had all the typical tarkovsky-isms. Was rather mediocre in the grand scheme of things. Of course it mesmerises american audiences though who have never watched a movie with intervals of silence before.


Speaking of Stalker, been rewatching Harry Potter films cause nostalgia and I read HPMOR and it reminded me of them, most of them actually hold up and are still fun enough but holy shit Deathly Hallows part 1 is awful, just proves why multi part movies are a bad idea in most cases, and the fans say it's 'darker and more mature', I mean I guess if by mature you mean a boring camping holiday where nothing happens and you just want to go home


Oops you said Solaris not Stalker

same difference :^)


i need to fix my attention span. i couldn't get through anatomy of a fall

1. It's just a fun movie with DeCaprio doing weird shit while being charming as fuck.

2. It's an interesting case study of someone with amazing abstract problem solving and people skills who uses their smarts to just accumulate random bullshit. The only fun thing in some rich peoples' lives is just hoarding and stepping on others. It's peering into the mind and world of someone very different from myself. A fun companion movie is The Aviator, another rags to riches story but focused on an autistic dudes obsession with airplanes instead of just being rich for the sake of it.

3. I love movies like this because they're a real character determiner. If I'm talking to someone about this movie at work or at a bar and they're like "Belfort is a badass, the government ruined his life!" then I know they're a fucking retard.


I actually like deathly hallows part 1 tbh
