The Movie Discussion Thread!
« on: May 30, 2014, 09:37:09 am »

(formerly the movie recommendation thread)

Just saw a great film?
Were you bored out of your mind at the theater?
Stumbled upon something that you just needed to rant or rave about on Netflix?

Then this is the thread to do it!

From big box office blockbusters to B grade schlock to obscure independent releases; discuss them here

Remember to remain civil

One amazing film is Children of men, which I think anyone and everyone should watch.

I want to observe this thread. Haven't seen something good lately, however. Yet.

Recently discovered Tenacious D and The Pick of Destiny. A stupid comedy, but the kind of stupid that Jack Black makes pretty funny, and also metal.

Second'd.  On a completely different track, Grave of the Fireflies and Requiem for a Dream.

Avoid looking at the synopsis though, it might have spoilers.

I hate you. I hate you so much.


I loved Equilibrium. Hilarious silly Matrix action thing that flows really well, I thought.

A rat in boxer shorts smoking a foul smelling cigar is banging on a cabinet shouting about rent money.

Haven't seen it, but you lose points for being cliche. :P

Well, at least I don't praise up Avatar, so I am not too cliche

Only watch Avatar it if you have a big screen and decent sound. It's not that great if you can't let the visuals hit you like a ton of bricks.

Speaking of Grave of the Fireflies, and a little off topic, I'm doing a research paper on pacifism in Studio Ghibli films. I haven't seen all of them, but any recommendations for focus?

Yeah all Avatar is pretty pictures, at its base it is generic cowboys vs indians affair.

Why didn't I think of grave of the fireflies? really touching.

A similar film would be 'where the wind blows' for something of a similar vein.

Kung Fu Hustle - Hilarious comedy AND damn good martial arts movie. Watch it now.
Black Dynamite - In my opinion, one of the most unique and well-executed comedies of the last decade. Not recognized nearly as much as it should be. It's a very particular type of comedy though.

I need to watch more good dramas tho. Lemme see if I can find some to suggest.

Think of it like Sim City, except with rival mayors that seek to destroy your citizens by arming legions of homeless people and sending them to attack you.
