What Are You Watching: Movie and TV Show Edition
Zenophilious posted a topic in General DiscussionThought I'd start a thread where people could talk about the movies they just watched. We have one for anime, so why not movies in general? Feel free to talk about any movie, new or old. Just watched Fido the other night. It's about civilization after the zombie apocalypse and how zombies are essentially forced into servitude through these weird collars manufactured by some ridiculously powerful corporation. It's not meant to be taken seriously at all, and is quite humorous if you've seen other zombie movies. The main character actually names his zombie servant "Fido" and plays fetch with him. Have a hankering to watch The Dark Knight again; love that movie so much, and I haven't seen it in a while. EDIT: Just changed it to movies AND TV shows, since why require another thread to talk about TV shows?
What Are Some of Your Favorite Movies?
nohman posted a topic in General DiscussionBesides VNs, one of the other things I consider an interest of mine is film. So, I thought it might be fun to create a topic discussing just that. To better focus the discussion, what are some of your favorite movies and maybe some of your thoughts on them? I'll start. The following aren’t arranged in arranged in any way, with exception of number one. I tried to pick these out with some variety in mind, so I attempted to reign in titles from any niche genres like all the crappy handheld horror movies I enjoy. I failed a little on that one. 1)Lost in Translation (2003) It’s a movie that I saw at the right time. I suppose it thematically clicked with my adolescent brain. It has charm, hosts some very pretty shots, has Bill Murray and a young Scarlett Johansson, is paced suitably well, and has Bill Murray. I’ve used it as my go to “let’s watch a movie at my place” date movie a number of times, so it also has some sentimentality too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_maEh38ZTw 2) Ikiru (1952) My favorite Akira Kurosawa film, though he has a number of movies that nip at Ikiru’s heels. It’s a touching movie about a Japanese bureaucrat who struggles after he finds out he has cancer. 3) [REC] (2007) One cam horror movie had to make its way onto this list. The genre is too much of a guilty pleasure of mine not to. Taking a step back and just thinking about it in terms of quality – not only against other movies of its kind, but also in general, it pretty much had to go to [REC]. 4) Drive (2011) This movie and just how much I enjoyed it surprised the hell out of me. The opening sequence is probably my favorite out of any movie and I can’t think of one that’s nearly as intense or thrilling. It’s a brutal movie and has some cool shots. 5) Whores’ Glory (2011) It’s a documentary with no narrator, no moral of the story, and no cause other than giving viewer the chance to peek into the lives of prostitutes in 3 different countries. It’s a little numbing and totally bleak. 6)Blade Runner (1982) It’s a sci-fi classic. I don’t think I need to go on too much. The last chase scene sits pretty vividly in my mind and Rutger Hauer’s speech is haunting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_saUN4j7Gw 7) A Clockwork Orange (1971) I love this movie. My friends and I have dressed up likes droogs for group costumes a number of times. I wouldn’t say it’s Kubrick’s best work, but it’s my favorite. Night of the Living Dead (1968) I saw this movie when I was five and it started me along the path of horror fandom. I was utterly obsessed with horror movies as a kid and I’m still now very much a fan of the genre. 9) Drunken Master II (1994) My favorite Jackie Chan flick and one I’d be comfortable calling his best. That final fight scene is one of my favorites out of any martial arts film. 10) Noroi: The Curse (2005) I wanted to list a Asian horror film and I ended up sneaking in another horror documentary. You can find the whole movie on Youtube if you're interested in watching it. That was harder than I expected. I feel like I neglected so many good films. So, what are some of your favorite movies?
