Japan is Remaking Cube
Apparently the long rumored remake of Cube got shunted over to Japan. Given their history with torture porn films, this could either be a blessing or a total disaster. Either way, I think I'll have to watch it.
It's coming out this year, too, so it may have already been filmed.

ITT: Post obscure theories about films that you subscribe to
So I have come up with a pet theory I'd like to post regarding Star Wars. Before I get into it, I'd like to mention that I only consider episodes 1-6 canon, so I absolutely do not give a fuck what the books (old canon or new), comics, or video games do to contradict what I'm mentioning.
One line that stuck out to me that people regard as a plot hole is the description of Vader's belief system as an "ancient religion" whereas the Jedi order collapsed only a generation prior. While the most rational explanation is that when the OT was made, they did not have a single clue what happened one generation prior, I think there's a way to rectify this line so that it's not a plot hole. That is, the spiritual beliefs espoused in the Qui-Gon Jinn line of Jedi is not and may have never been the orthodox spiritual belief system of the Jedi or of the Sith. Forcism may be some ancient form of animism that more materialistic explanations have overtaken over the course of a very long time.
As proof of this theory, I have two arguments. 1) Nothing said by any non-Jinn line Jedi (except maybe Yoda, who is old enough to have taught Qui-Gon or one of his predecessors) indicates that anyone else believes in the Force in the same sense Obi Wan taught about it to Luke. In the prequels there is a distinct lack of spiritual discussion of the force. I believe this implies that true belief in the Force as anything other than the manipulation of midicholorians to make light sabers travel across distances is nearly extinct in that era.
2) There is a very useful power that we never see any non-Jinn line Jedi use in the canon films, that being the jedi mind trick. This power is highly distinct from the rest of the Jedi/Sith power sets, which to my mind indicates that it may be not accessible to the more materialistically-minded Jedi. There may be subsets of what are commonly understood to be Jedi/Sith powers which are actually reserved for members of the ancient forcist religion.
In summary, because the canon movies revolve around the Jinn line, I believe there is a severe conflation in the fanbase between aspects of the heretical and mystical ancient cult Obi Wan inducted Luke into (and that Anakin continued to follow even after parting from his mentor) and the actual orthodoxy and power-set of the majority of Jedi and Sith.
pic unrelated, I don't want fucking Soy Wars shit on my computer.

Horror and Suspense

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.

Evil Dead Thread
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.

Movie Identification Thread
Do you have screenshot from a movie that you want identified? What about some movie that you saw long ago but don't remember the name?
This is the thread for you.
I'm trying to remember the name of this one movie that I use to watch as a kid. The plot involved this kid looking for a magic ring that shoots a blue death laser so that he can defeat this evil wizard who also has death laser powers. On his journey he meets this lady that turns into a a spider person that tries to eat him and this band of cyclopes that either wants to marry or eat his traveling companion. Also the evil wizard keeps killing dwarves throughout the movie.

Kubrick Appreciation Thread
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?

大怪獣- Kaiju Thread
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.

MST3k Turkey Day Marathon
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!

Thread for discussing (and recommending) movies that fit the Halloween spirit.
Not necessarily horror films (many of them aren't scary at all), but which embody the spirit of the holiday. Hallmarks of October movie marathons. Seeing these on the shelf at Blockbuster was as much a sign of Halloween as Santa in the department store window was a sign of Christmas.
Tim Burton's early films and aesthetic are intrinsically tied to this subgenre, but the selection is much larger than that. Share your favorites.
