大怪獣 Hail to the king baby! Giant monster talk goes here. It doesn't just have to be Japanese movies either so the rare Western kaiju and other Asian kaiju are welcome too. And for the heck of it we'll also include movies that are peripheral to the kaiju genera like Green Slime and Matango.

Watched American Made today. Aside from a couple gags about Ollie North and Reagan I enjoyed it more than I expected. Really liked the way they depicted flying. Tom Cruise is nuts but knows how to pick a good script. Wasn't perfect by any means, but it was a decent flick. Has just enough personality to stand out from similar films. >>273 I liked the movie but the first season of the show is definitely better. Really has time to explore multiple characters and flesh them out. The show has its share of "perfect" characters, but they're usually not the main character. The formula is usually the same, with a virtuous cop as the protagonist, but they spend most of the season being three steps behind what's going on But I definitely think the first season is worth watching, and the third is pretty good too.

Finally got around to watching The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I was worried it would disappoint. Twenty years of anticipation is hard to build on. But it had some great moments and an interesting premise. Apparently the original draft had actual time travel, but avoiding it makes for better character moments. I don't want to say too much and spoil it, but it's one of the better "protagonist loses touch with reality" movies out there. Kind of reminded me of The Fall, but with more substance. Only thing I'd change is replacing Adam Driver with someone else. He really can't act very well and his face is annoying to look at. There's also one like making fun of Trump, and I really hate politics in movies since it tends to date them. But everyone did a great job and the journey was worth it.
>>284 I didn't care for all the excessive cursing. That's the only real gripe I have with it.

I went through a B movie phase when I was in high school, though I dropped out because they were (nearly) all horrible. This whole "it's so bad, it's good" rarely ever plays out. I'll list some memorable ones (maybe B movie, or maybe films forgotten over time) in case someone out there also suffered the same fate: Teeth (2007) may not be a B movie, but maybe it is. If you want nightmares of your dick getting cut off while having sex, watch it. Otherwise, pretty much feminist garbage. Poultrygeist (2006) is pure degeneracy (and Jewish comedy) at every turn. Watched it shortly after it came out and never touched it again. Meatball Machine (2005) I actually remember liking. But it's been years, so who knows how it stands up at this point. Splatter: Naked Blood (1996) was mediocre at best. I think about the only reason you watch this movie is to watch a woman gradually consume herself. Kids (1995) or anything from Larry Clark and/or Harmony Korine. At least, up until the early 2000s - after that, I guess Korine got some commercial success since he did Spring Breakers (which was also shit). I don't know why I stuck to watching Gummo and Ken Park after watching Kids because they were all shit. I guess since it was constantly recommended and I was some dumbass teenager with no backbone, I thought I was the one who had no taste. But no, they're all trash. Remo Williams (1985) was great. I watched it a few times in high school. I should rewatch it at some point in the future.

Fencing is a martial art right? Can we talk about Samurai movies in this thread? I miss the samurai movie thread back on 8chan/film/ Anyone seen any good samurai flicks lately? I'm quite partial to the Lone Wolf and Cub movies. Of course there's always the great Kurosawa films, I've seen Seven Samurai, Yojimbo and Sanjuro, and Ran is my favorite goddamn that ending. About to download The Hidden Fortress, I doubt that it's going to disappoint. For more modern stuff, 13 Assassins is a really fun movie. Gory as fuck, has some goofy comic relief moments but mostly a solid samurai action movie with fucking great fights. Also anyone that's seen Harakiri is my Daimyo.

>>86 Phantom of the Paradise is ingenious. I love how Paul Williams takes Winslow's "Faust" and makes a bubble-gum-pop version with "Upholstery". I often break out from "Upholstery" into "Faust" because of that chorus. https://www.yewtu.be/watch?v=dJcH1bj53aE Oliver! from 1968 is a great musical. "Who Will Buy?" has been stuck in my head ever since I watched it, but every number seems to fit into the film well. Not to mention the choreography is wicked good. https://www.yewtu.be/watch?v=XihLS-jA_Dg Another great musical is "The Music Man". Please, if you watch a film adaptation, watch the 1962 one with Robert Preston. The one with Matthew Broderick is a clear example of shoving a falling star into a film to hopefully sell a few tickets. My personal favourite is "Gary, Indiana", but every song is memorable.

MST3k Turkey Day Marathon Anonymous 11/21/2020 (Sat) 06:06:49 Id:ae8d5e No. 158 [Reply]
Once upon a time, it was tradition to marathon Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Thanksgiving, and it became known as "The Turkey Day Marathon". After a brief absence, these marathons returned in the form of YouTube streams with segments filmed to fill in the gaps between episodes. These streams continue today, but primarily exist to promote the Netflix reboot. As such, I've run my own Turkey Days the past few years by queuing up a bunch of my favorite episodes to run in the background while I cook. This year, I'll be streaming it so everyone can join in. However, I need your suggestions. What are your favorite MST3k episodes? Make suggestions in this thread and have them streamed on Thanksgiving!

>>178 Maybe. There's a few MST3k Christmas episodes, plus a few more Rifftrax ones including some live shows, although some of those are duplicates. Pretty sure they did Santa Claus vs. The Martians like three times. I was also considering a Rankin-Bass marathon. I'm open to suggestions. What would you like to see?

Kubrick Appreciation Thread Anonymous 10/30/2020 (Fri) 20:50:51 Id:caa326 No. 125 [Reply]
Stanley Kubrick easily makes everyone's top director lists. However, he's probably most famous for 2001: A Space Odyssey and Full Metal Jacket, both sensations in their time with a massive impact on pop culture despite Kubrick's supposed niche appeal. However, his less popular movies are easily my favorites, and among cinephiles I speak to these are not unpopular opinions. A Clockwork Orange is, of course, also well known but no longer mainstream. My personal favorites, however, are Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut. The latter performed poorly and was often criticized. Barry Lyndon is the epitome of "every frame a painting", and his research on the period (RIP his Napoleon film) combined with his lighting and framing imitate art from the period perfectly. Kubrick believed in telling stories with editing and visuals, which is the essence of film-making, and I can't think of a movie that encapsulates that better than Eyes Wide Shut. I can't help but feel it did poorly because it doesn't hold your hand through the narrative. There's almost no exposition in the entire film. Combined with his untimely death and rumors the final edit was tinkered with, I think this movie was unfairly criticized. I'd encourage any anons who have not seen his movies to do so. Including his earlier works, such as Spartacus and Paths of Glory. Kubrick never made a bad film. But I imagine most of you are also Kubrick fans. Which works are your favorite, and why?
1 post omitted.
>>126 Personally I couldn't stand the book. Stephen King is really hit or miss and I'd say The Shining is a hard miss. Movie is better by a mile. Kubrick never really sticks to the book, for better or worse, but Stephen King is continually unhappy with good adaptations and endorses/writes for the bad ones. What works in a book doesn't always work on screen.
>>125 Stanley Kubrick is certainly a high-achieving director. I find it difficult to choose my favourite Kubrick film because they really do switch genres so much. I haven't seen his first two films (which I heard weren't great) and never watched Spartacus (which he only directed). I've seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining a few times at this point. I've only seen Paths of Glory and Dr. Strangelove once each and Barry Lyndon, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut twice each. I'd have to give them a few more watches. What really makes his films for me, though, are his themes. I can't speak much for the ones I've only seen once or twice, but certainly The Shining with its child abuse (both physical and sexual) subtext, gold-reserve-abandonment, and showing the Native American genocide; A Clockwork Orange depicting a new-coming of the Third Reich through pleasure and a government which claims to be against it (Kubrick was Jewish after all); and 2001: A Space Odyssey indicating the space race as maybe not all it seems, plus these themes repeating themselves through most of his films and even smaller themes within each movie, they really are communicated in an entertaining way that isn't too overt and makes you think they're preaching to the choir. I don't necessarily agree with all his themes, but he certainly presents them in an interesting way. >My personal favorites, however, are Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut Definitely enjoyed Eyes Wide Shut, though more so the second time around. It definitely doesn't hold your hand and Kubrick's use of "dream sequences" without telling you when the dream starts makes things very convoluted. Barry Lyndon was certainly filmed beautifully, but I can't say it's my favourite. I appreciate showing that having money doesn't necessarily bring you happiness. I'd rewatch it again, though, so clearly it isn't bad.
>>215 Eyes Wide Shut is the culmination of an experiment Kubrick started at least as early as 2001 to tell the entire story by using imagery to make you feel. It's a wild ride, and it puts knots in my stomach every time, which is why I rarely watch it. But I applaud its accomplishment. Barry Lyndon does much of the same, but the realistic lighting, and how every frame looks like a period painting, is just masterful. Additionally, despite having a narrator to give some exposition and smooth over some gaps, which is normally a big red flag for me, Barry Lyndon limits it to specific cases, and provides a framing device in the form of the original book. It's a tale of ambition, not just that "money doesn't make you happy". Barry is Icarus, and he's ultimately taken down by his own pride and vanity. He forgot where he came from, and how his story began.

GROOVY EDITION I recently finished the 3rd season of Ash vs Evil Dead. What was that about? Are they going to take the Mad Max route? Who was that robo-chick at the end? Wasn't Raimi planning on a new Evil Dead film called Evil Dead Now with Lee Cronin (i.e Who?) directing it? They said Bruce Campbell won't star in it so it will probably be shit. But hey, let's talk about the good stuff for now. Which is your favorite Evil Dead movie? I love 2 but Army of Darkness takes the crown for me. It's just so fun and features armies of living skeletons so that's a plus.
7 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>202 >I'm more bothered by the "Deadites can do whatever adds the most tension to a scene" rule, but it is consistent. Because "deadites" aren't the actual evil force, the actual antagonistic force in the series is just a general power of evil that comes from the book, and it creates all sorts of things, including creatures, that are each pretty much individual entities, each with their own abilities. Hell, Jason Voorhees got retconned into being a Deadite all along in Jason Goes to Hell, and frankly, that made it work, since Evil Dead monsters just do whatever because the "evil" in question is so vaguely defined, which is clearly intentional.
Little late with this news but apparently they announced an Evil Dead game at The Gay Awards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VuxTw4IU-Q Apparently it's a Left 4 Dead game with a bunch of characters. The trailers references all three movies and the TV show, so it seems they worked out the licensing somehow. Although knowing Evil Dead, this will somehow complicate the rights issue the next time someone wants to do anything with the universe. I'm curious if this means Bruce Campbell is un-retiring Ash in some capacity (although he implied before he might do games and other media appearances) or if he's uninvolved. The trailer seems to rip dialogue from elsewhere, so it's possible they didn't even call him in for this. But it would be nice for him to be back. I'm assuming this is what Dana was tweeting about recently. I'd love a continuation of the show but this might tide me over for a bit.
>>218 That actually looks kinda neat. I hope Bruce comes back to do the voice too. >I'd love a continuation of the show The show definitely was growing on me, and I'd also like to see it go again.

Yet Alejandro Jodorowski and Pier Paolo Pasolini were, and are, praised for their "art" films (albeit the controversy), and they made quite a number of movies that are all filth. So definitely degenerate filmmakers to the boot. Takashi Miike also has some degenerate stuff (like Visitor Q), but he's done so many other movies that are calm and happy that I don't know how I place him.

>Favorite Slasher movie >Favorite Friday the 13th film >Favorite Nightmare in Elm Street film What have you been watching?
>Favorite Slasher movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 - it's a pretty tame movie, but the intimidating title and the frontloaded content warning let the movie do a lot while not being excessive or unbelievable. >Favorite Friday the 13th film Jason X. It's kind of hard to take the Friday the 13th series seriously, so I like it best at its goofiest. >Favorite Nightmare in Elm Street film A Nightmare on Elm Street 1, easily a contender for the best slasher movie.
Been watching all the Friday the 13th movies. I love them even though they're horrible. With Halloween, I even like the Thorn trilogy, because Loomis and Jamie are actually interesting characters, and Halloween 6 so fucking retarded that it's great. But Friday the 13th never does that. Tommy Jarvis is a cool idea, but he's completely wasted in Part V, so really there are only two movies, IV and VI, where there is truly a recurring character that is of any importance. Even more than every other slasher series, these characters are lame. There is more plot to each movie than most people say, but not by much. But that doesn't matter. The one with the least story is probably Part III, which practically has no story, the most that can be said is "it's the one where he gets the mask," but I'd say it's still one of the best ones, largely just because of the kills. And that's what we're here for, right? Well not really, because these movies are largely so neutered that you barely see anything. So why am I writing about them? I don't know. But I'll keep writing my thoughts anyway, and maybe it will help me figure it out. So Parts 1-8 have a pretty cohesive story, with some major fuckups, but in a series like this, it's easy to overlook them. As a lot of people are aware, Parts 2, 3, and 4 take place in one massive killing spree. A lot of people say it's over three days, but technically I think more than one day passes in some of these movies, but still. Part IV is technically Monday the 16th or something. Anyway, when you keep this in mind, it actually helps to justify a lot of the dumb decisions made by the characters. It's not that Crystal Lake had four killing sprees by an unstoppable monster, it had three killing sprees: one in 1958, one in 1979, which were later discovered to be the same killer, and she was beheaded. Then there was one more spree by a different guy in 1984. Really, in Parts V and VI, Pamela Voorhees should be a scarier legend than Jason, since she had two sprees to Jason's one. It also makes it a bit more justifiable that people don't believe Jason is back. By the 5th and 6th movies, this seems ridiculous to us, but to them, it's like saying that the Boston Bombers are back. On the other hand, it makes it even more ridiculous that more kids keep coming to Crystal Lake in Parts III and IV, since Jason's murders only happened like last night. Now the weird part is how once Jason comes back as a zombie and a bunch of cops see him, Part VII still treats him like a legend, and never make any attempt to justify it, like say Nightmare on Elm Street tries to justify people treating Freddy like a legend. And the worst part is they could have justified this easily. Just point out that there were very few survivors, and the whole thing got blamed on Tommy. But instead they just never mention Tommy again. In Part VIII I kind of get it since the guy denying Jason isn't a cop, and seems like he's just trying to shut up the damn kids, regardless of if he believes in the killer zombie or not. But then speaking of Part VIII, it's a bit sad that the last one with continuity is the one with the biggest continuity problems. How old is that one girl that she saw Jason underwater when he was still a kid? Jason was fully grown by 1984, and it seems like he was just a regular retard until then. So how did she see him as he looked in 1957? Was she over 30 years old? Tommy looks a hell of a lot older in V than in IV, and surely we're not supposed to think V, VI, VII, and VIII all happen in quick succession. Even if they did, this shit has to take place in the 1990s at least. Of course, it's not the first time there have been problems with this. Everyone points out the girl in Part III that saw Jason before and he looked like in Part III even though this should have happened before Part II, but then if I can accept that Jason looks radically different in Parts II, III, and IV even though they take place immediately after each other, I can accept this. Anyway, back to Part VIII, what the fuck was the ending? So the acid turns him back into a kid? And uh... it's like his inner self, like what he would have looked like if he wasn't a retard? As far as I saw, they just left him there. So by Jason Goes to Hell, did he just age back into an adult, since they just let him live and go free in the previous movie? Of course the New Line movies have effectively no continuity, but still. I know there isn't much point complaining about Jason Goes To Hell, but how did that bounty hunter know Jason was a body-hopping Deadite? He had never done anything like that before. He was just a retard with tard strength who happened to become a zombie. I actually like this movie overall, but for some reason, this is the part that bugs me. I can accept that it's basically retconned that Jason was a Deadite all along, but not that this guy knew it. Not without more explanation. Jason X then starts saying Jason has regenerative abilities, which is also technically a new power, but considering all the shit he's been through, this is a lot easier to accept than the fact that his true form is that of a body hopping gremlin that technically isn't even a zombie anymore since he got a brand new body after jumping into his dead sister's vagina and jumping out as a full grown man complete with clothes and hockey mask. Plus, the fact that this movie is so self aware helps you accept whatever it throws at you. Pretty underrated entry, IMO. After eight movies that were effectively exactly the same, and a ninth that was just full retard, this one hit a balance of both kinds of retarded. Though it did bother me that they said the year was 2455, and Jason was frozen for 455 years, even though he was frozen in 2010. They kept fucking up and calculating the date based on the year the movie was made. Freddy vs. Jason has always felt like wasted potential just because my autism wanted more of a story, but I guess it's what I should have expected from any movie with Jason. I remember when it came out, even all my casual friends were shocked that they didn't say Freddy was one of the councilors that let Jason die, since it was the most obvious thing ever. I like the remake. I also like that since the franchise has such little story, and after the New Line films, such loose continuity, that you can basically consider it to not even be a remake. Jason lost his mask and then got another sack and eventually another hockey mask. There, it's just the sequel to Freddy vs. Jason now. And then Jason X, beginning in 2010, happens about a year after this movie.

The behind the scenes stories of stuntmen nearly getting killed and others getting paid in alcohol or something like that are pretty interesting too. Anyone play the Mad Max game that came out on PC? Curious if the plot was anything interesting.
>>3 Road Warrior is definitely my favorite. It has a fun, self-contained story, Max is finally the wasteland badass we want him to be, his car is just bitchin', and the whole thing is an excellent wasteland story. I think Fury Road is a lot better in a lot of little ways - I actually like Tom Hardy as Max, he's a lot more expressive - but Road Warrior will always be the best one. >>48 >Mad Max game It's excellent because it's very aware it's a Mad Max game. You're not there to save the world, you're there because some fags chopped your car up and you need a new one. You build it yourself with the help of a weird mutant guy and cruise around, stealing scrap, blowing up cars and beating guys up. Shitty melee combat that is way too Batman to be excellent, but great driving and if you like cars, they definitely had some car nerds on the team. What I like the best is that Max is Max. He's kinda a dick, and spends the majority of the game bitching that his new car has a pathetic little V6 engine instead of the mighty V8 he wants. It was great and I'd play it again for sure.
>>127 I'll have to give the game a go sometime then. Sounds like the devs actually gave a shit about the source material. That is pretty rare these days.

Post and talk about your favorites here. Try to keep it about pre 2000 movies because horror movies from the 21st Century are almost universally awful. Hell even mid 90's were pushing it.

I can't believe I completely forgot to talk about this. The Devil & The Blacksmith. It's a spanish movie based on the folktale of the same name. Gist is a blacksmith made a deal with a demon to survive a war in the past. Now he holds the demon hostage in a gated off workshop he calls home. A little orphan girl who's mother committed suicide ends up going into his workshop after some bullies tear apart her doll & throw part of it over the gate. I don't wanna spoil much else but it's a really good movie. The makeup on the demons is fantastic & despite being a horror movie, it's not a nihilistic one. If you wanna watch it with others, it's on Netflix right now.

Do you read Sutter Cane?
>>25 >If anyone knows any other films where people actively try to figure out how the creature/evil thing works along some line of logic or physical traits Prince of Darkness sounds like it matches what you're looking for.

What is some of your favorite puppetry in movies? Any that stuck with you as a kid? My personal favorites are ED-209 and The Thing.
