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'll start 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.

Why does Hammer not release their movies on discs in a sensible way? Instead being able to get, say, all the Dracula films or all the Frankenstein films as a box set you can only get them potluck in arbitrarily grouped box sets.

>>524 To rub salt in even farther for the "Iyi" clan, Ii Naomasa was the star general in the battle of Battle of Sekigahara on Ieyasu's side. >Naomasa's finest hour was to come at the Battle of Sekigahara, where his unit outpaced those of other generals such as Fukushima Masanori, drawing the "first blood" of that battle. However, as the fighting was dying down, Naomasa was shot and wounded by a stray bullet during his attempt to prevent Shimazu Yoshihiro's getaway, a wound from which he would never fully recover. The wound also prevented his personal involvement in quelling the last vestiges of the anti-Tokugawa faction in the coming months.[1] According to legend, Naomasa was feared so much by his own men, that when he was critically wounded at Sekigahara, not a single one of them committed ritual seppuku, the act of honor killing to prevent a samurai from falling into enemy hands, out of fear of retaliation. As such, Naomasa was able to regain his composure and escape with his life. So the Ii clan wasn't just some clan that managed to navigate the transition to the Edo era by the skin of their teeth., they were an exemplar of the last days of the Sengoku period and were well placed with the Tokugawa shogunate. To show how far such a clan had fallen only 28 years after the death of their leader really adds another on the movie. In fact given how Naomasa was badly injured but fought through and survived, the final fight in the movie could almost be taken as the clan having to fight the angry spirit of their ancestor because of their rampant dishonor.
What's a good entry point to the genre? I've seen a couple of Bruce Lee films but not much else.
>>531 Depends if you're talking about serious films, chopsocky kung fu films, or American made "inspired by Hong Kong" martial arts movies. >Serious Yojimbo and Sanjuro by Akira Kurosawa are a good start. Also Seven Samurai, really it's hard to go wrong with Kurosawa. Onibaba by Kaneto Shindo although it's less of a martial arts movie and more a movie that takes place in the shadow of the Sengoku period. >Chopsocky action There's a lot to choose from. There's One Armed Boxer and it's sequel Master of the Flying Guillotine. Invincible Armor is pretty wild. Tiger & Crane Fist that you probably won't enjoy as much as Kung Pow! Any of the Godfrey Ho movies. The Little Hero of Shaolin Temple which is sometimes mislabeled as Little Ninja Heroes and has nothing to do with ninja if I recall. >American There's the American Ninja films. The Last Dragon. Big Trouble in Little China, which is pretty much responsible for Mortal Kombat. Speaking of which if by some chance if you still haven't seen it the original Mortal Kombat is a really good American made martial arts movie. Bloodsport. Don't watch any of the Steven Segal movies.

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?

>>125 My favorite is 2001 by far. It's the first movie I ever watched and it continues to stick out in my mind as a near-perfect film. The effects, how it's shot, the editing, it just holds up so well and communicates its big ideas through experience rather than exposition, and I always feel like I've learned something new. I do mean to watch Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut at some point because they're the only ones I haven't seen yet, but I just never got around to them. I even made the mistake of watching AI. Spartacus was good, too, but Ben Hur did it better. I'm always amused by the Roman phase Hollywood went through in the 50s and 60s.
>>521 The "Roman Phase" was partially a result of Hollywood's attempt to compete with television. The best epics exists in this period because they realized the one place TV couldn't compete was on spectacle. There's plenty of non-Roman epics like Lawrence of Arabia and Cleopatra (I guess you could argue that one based on time period), but there was a wealth of Bible stories and mad Roman emperors, not to mention Shakespeare, ripe for adaptation. I still haven't seen Paths of Glory or The Killing, but I should get on with it. I can't imagine not liking them, but everyone focuses on his career post-2001, with some mentions of Lolita and Dr. Strangelove. Spartacus is almost never mentioned in the context of Kubrick himself. I think it's odd the rest are regarded as big, influential, important works directed by Kubrick and Spartacus seems to just be a big, influential, important work which happens to be directed by Kubrick. Haven't seen Ben Hur to compare, but it would be appropriate that it's better. Communists love Spartacus for some reason and love that it broke the Hollywood blacklist, but Charlton Heston is a true patriot.

Not a film, but after many years of prodding I finally got around to watching The Sopranos. Took only half an episode to hook me. I was really worried it would have aged poorly, but it manages to blow most newer shows out of the water. I think I still like Mad Men better, but The Sopranos is the only real competition at this stage. I'm not even done with the first season yet, but I felt like talking about it. Highly recommend it. Has a lot of actors from mob films in the 90's and clearly has a lot of love for them while trying to be a bit more grounded. Almost every episode has something most shows would save for the end of a season, so I'm excited to see where they could possibly go with things. >>365 I can't agree that Taxi Driver is better than Leon. While I'd rather rewatch a lot of Scorscese films over Leon (particularly After Hours and The Age of Innocense) I think Taxi Driver isn't quite as good as it's hyped up to be. Leon is a much more personal, if less grounded, look at a loner. And his relationship with a literal child sets it apart. Luc Besson is a pedophile, but the movie as released has a pretty strong message against predatory behavior. The growth of his fatherly role while she tries to act like his girlfriend is very unique and has some great character development. Jodie Foster was great in Taxi Driver, but they never really built up much chemistry (although that's the whole point). Oldman chews the scenery more than in most roles, and that makes it one of his best, but he stands out in an already cartoonish film and in the early scenes I think he could have played it more subdued. Worth it for "Send Everybody", though. >>365
>>373 Update a month later: I've been averaging an episode a day and it's still holding up. Third season got off to a rocky start with the mother dying off-screen due to the actress' death, but I think it recovered and finished stronger than ever by the end. That said, I'd criticize the show for falling into a pattern and creating a sense of normalcy. The first season felt like tumultuous times, and the second explored the consequences of the first. Season 3 feels like it's settling in. The focus is pretty much entirely not on Tony. Compare this with something like Breaking Bad, where the characters never find themselves in the same situation twice. I'd also like to harp on the fact that someone has to die every season. At least this time it wasn't some rival for power. They set that up and then have it end sensibly, which I think was a good call, but knowing someone will die each time is still not ideal. At this rate I should finish the series sometime in the next two months. Once a day is a good pace for a show like this. It's too heavy and long to binge properly but it still benefits from watching in succession. Overall, I'd recommend the show so far. It beats out most HBO shows and Breaking Bad pretty easily, which really just leaves Mad Men a contender for "best show".
If anyone wants to watch some Miami Vice it starts in 5 minutes. I'll try to do this weekly if anyone is interested. https://cytu.be/r/civilwarcrimes

ITT: Post obscure theories about films that you subscribe to Anonymous 03/14/2021 (Sun) 06:31:29 Id:58bc0b No. 414 [Reply]
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.

>>415 The prequels are honestly fine, just lacking subtlety. If the same events happened but felt character-driven then it would be okay. That said, I'd be fine with some tweaks to the politics to make it happen. Trade embargoes enforced by a droid army make little sense. Why doesn't everyone use a droid army? Why doesn't everyone use a clone army? It's Star Wars so no time is spent explaining how the world is, but "evil empire has giant capital ships and cyborg knights" didn't really need explaining. The galaxy's economy shouldn't, either... unless you're going to mention it explicitly. Otherwise, I mostly would like small changes. Obi-Wan should be the impulsive youngster in Phantom Menace, but Qui-Gon fulfills this role somehow. Swap that. Clone Wars should be more Anakin and Obi-Wan centric to show Obi-Wan maturing into a mentor at a younger age than he otherwise would. You have to address the elephant in the room, which is "what even is a clone war". Arguably, a war fought by clones on one side is the lamest version of that. What about a civil war caused by the adoption of clone troopers themselves? I'd suggest a war where major political figures and Jedi are cloned, but honestly the best conclusion to an arc like this is "cloning is non-viable except for short-term, expensive shock troops that are expendable". Have them degrade rapidly after a few years. Long enough to splinter the Republic, make people choose sides, and then let Palpatine engineer a win. Fights between droids and clones aren't interesting because there are no stakes, so focusing on the political intrigue and assassinations would be a good idea. They did sorta do this, but still conceded a big action climax with too much going on. I love Grievous but I would prefer SpiderMaul because he serves as a foil to Obi-Wan and likewise can represent secret Sith life-preserving technology to foreshadow Darth Vader's suit. Grievous arguably does the same but mostly his gimmick is "lol 4 lightsabers go woooosh" and that's it. Total waste of a fun character. Dooku also got the shaft. One of the best actors of all time, he shows up briefly in each movie to establish being a Jedi turned evil. No real character development. Would have been better to have him impede investigations in Episode 2 and then, when excommunicated, overtly turning against them to act as a lightning rod away from Palpatine and excuse crackdowns on the Jedi as a whole "for everyone's safety", which can be used to weed out vocal opponents. You know, a slow march towards fascism instead of just "lol Order 66 engage". Could there be a longer gap between Episode 3 and 4? Yeah, I don't think making it 30-40 years instead of 20 would hurt, to really put the Republic in the past. But too much has to happen in the gap that isn't covered otherwise. Having Vader's injuries be the result of a showdown with Obi-Wan is properly climactic and makes the most sense poetically, even if it is a bit rushed. The main issue is, if you do this, it ages up Luke and Leia which completely breaks their character development. That, or you have to have Padme get pregnant later on. But that just doesn't work out. I will defend Episode 3's character development of Anakin. Should Clone Wars have shown more actual distaste for the council? Absolutely. Complaining a bunch about them didn't make anyone sympathize. But Episode 3 makes sense. Anakin wanted to save Padme from dying, couldn't access the archives for that, and Palpatine outright handed him the promotion he wanted... except the council veto'd the rank increase. Lucas just screwed it up by cutting the whole "oh the archives for premonitions are available to masters only!" bit from the movie, so Anakin just looks like he wants the prestige of the rank and is willing to murder his friends for that. No, he's willing to turn on his friends because he wants to save his secret wife.
One thing I always found interesting is the strong theme that The Jedi Order is corrupted by the time of the prequels. In interviews and such, Lucas seems to not intend this at all, but in the films themselves, it works so well. Of course there is the bit where The Jedi are turned into a military force, which is acknowledged as being wrong within the films, but then we also see them make multiple judgements that are incorrect, and since they're prequels, we know they're incorrect as they make them. Anakin IS the Chosen One, he does bring balance to The Force, but Yoda was going to disregard that and not allow him in. Qui-Gon, a hippie spiritual type who disregards the letter of the law in favor of its spirit, could sense further ahead and saw that, even though he would do terrible things as Vader, he ultimately still would fulfill his destiny. And not only does he end The Sith, but he also ends The Jedi, as if both were corrupting The Force. And given that we see the Jedi were corrupted, this makes sense. By the end, Luke is the only one left, but he didn't even finish Jedi school, and the Jedi school he dropped out of was obviously not the type that the Jedi Order used before their downfall. Not only was he older, and Yoda had to teach him in unorthodox circumstances, but by that time, Yoda seemed to see and learn from some of his own mistakes as well. Whatever Luke is, he is not the same type of thing that the characters of the prequels were, except for arguably Qui-Gon. Of course, the fact that Qui-Gon was an influence on Anakin is important as well, and a large part of what saves the day in the end, but the fact that he wasn't able to train him fully himself resulted in Anakin being corrupted by Jedi who were themselves already corrupted, notable Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan was better than most, due to his training by Qui-Gon, but was shown to never fully get Qui-Gon's teachings, and thus still had a bit of the corrupted, bureaucratic influence of the Order in him, and then this results in him being unable to properly train Anakin. It's not because Obi-Wan is a bad Jedi, he's better than most, but training Anakin was always going to be an extraordinary job, and while he did it well enough to save the day at the very end, it resulted in a lot of messed up stuff in the middle (Darth Vader). When Obi-Wan says that he failed Anakin, he might be hard on himself, but only a tiny bit. He didn't do as well as Qui-Gon would have done, even if he was second best. But of course we can sympathize with his very difficult situation. >tl;dr: The Jedi Council was corrupted by bureaucracy and itself needed to be destroyed, along with The Sith, to bring balance to The Force, and that's precisely what Anakin did. Vader destroying The Jedi was actually the will of The Force. They, like Anakin, had good intentions, but were flawed, and their destruction was ultimately good. In the end, there is no organized religion dedicated to messing with The Force, for good or evil. Both take it out of balance. The movies seem to actually establish this quite well, but in interviews and such, it's like Lucas doesn't even realize he did it. >>414 >the description of Vader's belief system as an "ancient religion" whereas the Jedi order collapsed only a generation prior. This isn't complicated. It was ancient even when it was still practiced. Ancient doesn't have to refer to when it ended. If anything, in almost all uses it would refer to when it began. >Yoda, who is old enough to have taught Qui-Gon or one of his predecessors) Yoda did teach Qui-Gon, not to mention Obi-Wan. This seems like something that was almost a plot hole when they introduced Qui-Gon, until they established that Yoda teaches the younglings. >>415 >Much like how Leia claimed to remember their mother's face in Episode 6 I can buy that this is just a vague memory from birth. That's believable, especially in context. >>416 >Why doesn't everyone use a droid army?

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.

>>139 Hate for army of darkness is literal hipster redditor bullshit. All ash one liners and character quarks people liked spawn from army of darkness.
>>218 >I'm curious if this means Bruce Campbell is un-retiring Ash in some capacity Does he have a modern career beyond ash?
>>357 No. All his other notable roles were in the 90's for the most part, with Brisco County and Xena/Hercules. He played Elvis in Bubba Ho-Tep, which was great, but that was ~15~ 20 years ago. He did My Name is Bruce which is a parody of himself and Ash. Ash is his only enduring role and it's what he's best known for. At this stage, I don't think he's gonna shake that. His best shot is Sam Raimi directing a Marvel movie and getting him more than a cameo. If it turns into a recurring role, then kids will know him for that. Which will be shitty, but at this point his career is Ash. I think he's just being dramatic and is upset the show got cancelled, but given the rest of the cast seems to be involved in the Evil Dead series going forward it gives me some kind of hope. Then again, Raimi hasn't done shit in years. He has some cash and some cachet but he's never bothered to put real effort into reviving the series or Bruce Campbell's career. The guy got screwed by Sony but he needs to get back to making stuff.

Japan is Remaking Cube Anonymous 02/02/2021 (Tue) 01:25:49 Id:73afdc No. 331 [Reply]
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. Source: https://archive.vn/lO0Fm It's coming out this year, too, so it may have already been filmed.
Better than Hollywood fucking it up again.

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.

It's stop-motion, so maybe it isn't what you mean by puppets, but Live Freaky! Die Freaky! is one of those random-ass movies that has stuck to me like glue.

What are your favorite B movies? What are some of the worst you have seen? My favorites are Killer Klowns and The Instructor (1981).

Project Metalbeast. Its part Virus, part Terminator, part Dog Soldiers and it is awesome. Just imagine if the T-101 Terminator was also a werewolf and you have the gist of it.

>>51 Cool idea. Terrible looking werewolf. He looks more like a monstrous porcupine.

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.

REDLINE has a soundtrack with never-ending energy. Perfect for driving fast to. Movie is worth watching for the soundtrack alone, but the animation is among the best.

>>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.
