I'm in no way an expert when it comes to horror, that said saying that a movie like It Follows is the best horror you have ever seen means you didn't saw many.

Rosemary baby's is probably my favorite.

Alien, Picknick at hanging rock, texas chainsaw massacre are also viable candidates for me.


 No.2486513

I've watched Annihilation recently, and thought it was stupid. I don't really care that much about logical mistakes, as long as they allow for a good plot, but the ending was just ridiculously unsatisfying, the characters made out of wood.

The only good scene was the bear attack and I guess parts of the surreal flora and fauna.

You wot? Alien is the best sci-fi/horror movie ever made, It's because of james cameron that is a meme.

Texas and rosemary baby are both better than it follows because they both aged really well. The gritty and realistic visuals of texas have yet to be surpassed or even achived by any other movie.

Rosemary shits easily on every other horror ever made just for how realistic can be even if it has supernatural motifs in it


 No.2486523

If you've never seen it, you absolutely have to see A Cloclwork Orange by Kubrick. It's s a fucking masterpiece and manages to be simple, deep and stylish at the same time.

Also, if you like absurd cinema and want to laugh at the bourguoise a little bit there is The Discrete Charm of the Bourgoisie by Buñuel.

If you want to laugh like an idiot all the time at everything, everything by Monty Python is fine (i suggest Life of Brian or The Meaning of Life).

If you want an action film which is not stupid, there is Fight Club.

If you like cyberpunkz, there is Ghost in the Shell (it's anime but it's good, if you have a prejudice against the media).

I think i put enough films. Probably you don't know a lot of cinema if you're asking for stuff to watch (i have a to-watch list of kilometres), so if that's right avoid The Discrete Charm of the Bourgueoisie because it's a little bit difficult if you're not used to that kind of stuff.

Fight Club is not supposed to be an "intellectual" film. It's well made, it's breath-taking and reflects the partial moment of knowledge of their own alienation people grasped during the end of the '90s. If OP doesn't want to watch Tarkovsky but only wants to follow an interesting story without watching absolute shit Figt Club seems to me a pretty good choice.

Also, why A Clockwork Orange shouldn't be someone's first Kubrick's film? It's more enjoyable and not so complex as 2001 space odyssey but at the same time is one of his best films. I cannot think of a better film to start watching Kubrick, maybe Full Metal Jacket but it's a little step lower in quality imho.

Oh goody, a film thread. For the anon who asked,

>Why would someone that thinks about the movies they watch enjoy BvS?

https://youtube.com/watch?v=h-k-tQxJv8o

https://youtube.com/watch?v=L-sZzYX4Jl4

Just some of the many reasons. It's unironically the Pacific Rim of the capeshit genre. I came in expecting an absolute trainwreck. Instead, I got a movie with solid writing, solid acting (that doesn't rely on overwritten dialogue designed for brain-dead audiences and actors actually spend quite a bit without talking which is fucking revitalising), great cinematography and a fantastic soundtrack. I'm not even familiar with historical art and comic book heroes barely had a presence in my childhood so I had zero emotional attachment and all the easter eggs in those videos just flew over my head until I started "researching". I already enjoy it just from the surface elements.

A lot can and has been said about BvS beyond useless trivia from it's plot structure to it's themes and characters. So much thought and inspiration put into it that it almost seems pointless given the subject matter and how it's been handled lately. The backlash it got is depressing and telling. All people want out of the genre is a momentary "life-affirming" "good vs. evil" spectacle that doesn't even begin to put to question the state of the world. To be fair, the sensiblities presented in BvS is neither as outrageous as Nolan's TDK trilogy (thankfully) nor is it really leftist. However, it's infinitely more human compared to the ones I've seen recently and represents a step in the right direction. A serious take on the genre by people who know what they're doing. It's capekino as far as I'm concerned.

I'd actually say Batman v Superman has quite a few leftist themes. I mean, a major plotpoint is that of an evil capitalist creating an uncontrollabe monster to kill an immigrant. Of course it doesn't get very deep into that stuff, because it's not what it's ultimately about, but I feel like it's the closest thing there is so an explicitly antifascist superhero movie.

It hurts to find people who appreciate Pacific Rim beyond the action but also entirely miss even the surface-level good that BvS has.

>>2489326

>too many subplots

Having been blown away after my first viewing, I was intrigued more than anything. Lex's plan is absolutely the glue. From framing Superman and indirectly kicking off Lois' investigation to feeding Bruce's anger and insecurities to anonymously sending photos of those branded by Batman to Clark and inciting him to start investigating, it's quite fascinating to see it unfold in the director's cut while having the time to connect dots. I think they all tie together well and showcases Lex as a real mastermind.

>"Martha" thing was stupid

Understandable. It's cheesy, no doubt, especially for a film with this serious of a tone. I would have personally worded it slightly differently. Have Superman say "kill HER" first and only when Batman asks what he means does he say "save Martha". Regardless, the fact that they pulled this without a hint of cynicism is amazing and another reason to love the movie.

>I hate capeshit

I don't blame you. It's only going downhill from here.

~4/10 of my collection.

Films to watch obscured: Uzumaki, Brotherhood, Children of Men

Seen before: Stalker, Das Boot, The King of Comedy. All in worse quality. GITS SAC 2nd watched a few and lost steam.

Films watched obscured: The Beach of Agnes, Blade runner (below Babylon).

The one's upright aren't worth seeking out.

Velvet- Crap prod values and acting.

Elle- Crass rape story. Acting>>>source material.

White God- Film about dogs +1. Didn't know what type of film it wanted to be

Battles without honour and humanity- Good but too hard to follow the constant betrayals.

Film I'm watching now: Punishment Park by the great blacklisted Peter Watkins. In a Dystopic USA political prisoners can choose decades in jail or race police through desert. The police really got into their roles went too far a few times when shooting. Ask me questions about any of the watched films.

Y'know, a lefty-themed movie wouldn't be so far-fetched. Unlike other games of it's kind which focuses on fighting, what is the core concept of Rampage? Destruction of property. Along with the usual corporate shenanigans behind the accidents, I'm sure we can add a few more things to make it lean further left. Here's what I'm thinking: The setting is very much like Robocop's. A city on the verge of being taken over by a mega corporation that's involved in all kinds of things from consumer products to politics and the military-industrial complex.

Of course, such wanton destruction to the point of ignoring fellow people's well being isn't exactly good praxis. So I figure the "story" is less of a representation of a revolution/resistance and instead taps more into the alienation and hopelessness felt by the average person in such a place. Their fears turn into rage as they transform into nigh-mindless monsters which also grants them the power they did not have before in the face of opression. Their rampage serves not only as vengeance but also a sort of therapeutic session as they physically remove the corporation's assets and take on the "security" force which is basically a private army. In that sense, the action set pieces should have a stylish and hypnotic approach to them like what Hotline Miami did with its gameplay.

As far as narrative goes, there's really no need to add more. The politics behind the setting are more of an implicit thing. George, Lizzie and Ralph are typical individuals. They are aimless in life and burdened by financial worries. One day, after particularly bad things already happened, shenanigans mutate them into kaiju. That's it. Like always, minimal dialogue is better for me. They would have little to none when human. For example, George wordlessly goes to work. At some point, he's called into his superior's office. The superior clears his throat. Cut immediately to George cleaning his desk. It's not hard to understand and shows just how little control they have of their lives. When they first roar, it becomes a statement. Their emotions are showcased as kaiju. Imagine a scene similar to the gif but with a giant gorilla atop a building. That would be beautiful. Those kinds of things done sincerely and gracefully I find profound.

I was high off listening to some NiN, reading up on the new Rampage movie and some videos talking about how art breaks capitalism when this idea hit me so please excuse my silliness.

Anybody else noticing how modern movies tend to be extremely lazy in their story conclusion/resolution? Even if a movie starts out with an interesting premise, like A Cure for Wellness for example (that scene in the pub in the Swiss village with the autistic girl was unbelievably good), the writers seem to be content with just building up mysteries but then don't bother properly resolving it. In the latter, the conclusion was to turn the movie into a Disney vampire castle movie, but most of the times, the writers just do a cop-out along the lines of "we will never really know what happened!!". This meme used to be somewhat okay when it came up as a new element in the 80s, leaving it up to the viewer to decide, in a time where properly wrapping up a story in a wholesome way considered the orthodox mode of telling a story, but now EVERYBODY does this shit. One of the last mainstream movie that didn't do this was Interstellar, and even then it was a bit shit arround the lines of "the power of love" and whatever, but hey, at least they put some effort into resolving it.

Another bad example of this would be Annihilation which didn't bother to explain anything except "hurr everything gets mixed up".

Probably a result of rushed production and writers not thinking the story through. It's easy to start something, it's hard to finish it.

I went looking for alternative documentaries, but could not find any proper ones.

Ty.

Watching both Hana-Bi and Taste of Cherry one after the other will have a very long lasting effect on me. They are both slow meditations on suicide and taboos. One from Japan one from Iran.

The 400 Blows is the best one there. Babylon, youth of the beast, La Jetee, Sans Soleil, Les Diaboliques and Pickpocket are all great non-obvious ones. The obvious ones being Bonnie and Clyde (best wardrobe dep work I have seen), Battle Royale, Stalker, Inception, Jaws, Bladerunner, Dr Zhivago, Psycho.

My favourite directors are Ken Loach and Michael Haneke. I, Daniel Blake is the only film to make me properly cry at it's end, the most important film of the decade.

I have a lot of time for him. I liked High Rise and Free Fire. I really liked A Field in England. But the second half of Kill list was very underwhelming. Makes me think the budget wasn't there. They should've re-wrote it.

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is his most class conscious film. Doesn't portray poverty as a fairy tale like in other films of his.

Just saw these from /fit/. Other than a bit of liberal noguns faggotry in the second one, they're pretty woke.

Sugar: The Bitter Truth (2009) is a presentation on how the increase in fructose consumption has caused obesity. Thanks capitalism for this cheap alternative to healthier food. It's full of biology that explains the problems with fructose in excruciating detail.

Fat Chance: Fructose 2.0 (2013) is the sequel. It goes into more demographic, physiological, and political detail.

>Originally titled Reign of the Dinosaurs, the series was intended not as a documentary, but as a six-hour series of fictional narratives based loosely on the comic book Age of Reptiles by Ricardo Delgado, and employing no narration. Each episode was to be instead followed by one of a companion series, called Science of Reign of the Dinosaurs, which would feature scientists explaining the basis for the preceding story, and pointing out which parts were speculative or imaginary.

>Due to cuts and changes in marketing strategy by the network and production company, the series was eventually renamed Dinosaur Revolution, and divided into a more traditional format inter-cut with "talking heads," or brief explanations from scientists. The series was also cut from the planned six hours to four.

Just saw one episode. Aside from the horribly misplaced "documentary" aspects thanks to executive meddling, it's practically a dinosaur SOL anime very much in the vein of Gon complete with the humor and violence. The Rahonavis (bottom rightmost) short is fantastic. Minimal narration and 100% personality. Great use of slow motion too. Why have I not seen this before?

>In 2012, a feature film called Dinotasia was released into theatres, utilizing used and unused footage from Dinosaur Revolution. It was designed to be closer to what Dinosaur Revolution was originally conceived as. It is narrated by Werner Herzog,

>and received negative reviews from critics.

Poverty and opression still exists because your ideas are retarded. They were also created by people who know that they can designate opinion one and opinion two ( left right) and then force morons to do the same shit and fail over and over. Great job dumb fuck. You just had a fucking socialist president for eight years and after a rise in racial tensions and the beginning of the fourth Reich , he celebrated by signing a fifty million dollar book deal. That doesn't even include all the insider trading he got in on after bailing out wall street or bribes he got while like twenty Intelligence agencies just so happened to miss all the oligarchs celebrities athletes politicians and other slaveowners in the Panama Papers. 99% of people in the left, the only people who agree that an hour of human work should be worth two McDonald's hamburgers instead of one McDonald's hamburgers worship this false savior con artist and they all pay two McDonald's hamburgers so the rock can get paid ten million McDonalds hamburgers to stand in front of a green screen. Is that an issue to you you fucking loser? Wouldn't that be a great place to attack to push for a more sane world where every human life has a value? Yeah it would. Stop masturbating in fantasy land with your ancient books or at least stay the fuck out of discussions if you are going to be that useless.
