Re: Last Movie You Watched

The Pyramid (2014): In case you thought As Above, So Below was way too much of a classy affair, this is the film for you. It's one of those bad films that would probably benefit from being cheaper and more Asylum-y. But to give credit where credit is due, there's one remarkably good scene involving...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Thunderbirds are GO (1966): No wonder this thing bombed hard, it's like a stillborn Tales from the Thunderbirds Universe anthology film that abuses the three-act structure in pretty bold ways. The music video dream sequence is rad as hell though, and it demonstrates beautifully what Supermarionatio...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

A "visuals aren't everything" twofer: Platonic Chain: If you can get past the primitive CG animation, this short form series from 2002 is actually a mildly interesting snapshot of its time, as it tries to imagine what a near-future society with all-pervasive social media might look like. I...

Every Day (2018):
We will be better off as a society if we just collectively agree that this was the western Your Name remake. It came and went, it's out of the system now, and nothing else needs to be done with it.

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Wagons East (1994): Inside this mostly unfunny nineties western comedy (that killed John Candy) is an absolutely pitch-dark wokesploitation comedy that wants out. This should be remade. John C. McGinley steals the show as a gay stereotype so over the top it's actually amazing. Happy Valentine's day...

Weathering With You: What to even think of this? I got simultaneously three totally different readings out of this film, and I find none of them really satisfying. 1. The charitable reading: Shinkai Black Label Hello, Internet, welcome to Film Theory. Imagine you're Makoto Shinkai, a famous one...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Flyboys (2006): James Franco stars in a hokey Shonen Jump version of WW1. I think he's got too contemporary of a face for the role, but the film was a lot of fun. Bonus points for a very literal application of Chekhov's gun. Body of Water (2011): Does this count as deconstructing folk horror? I'...

Is that the one about magic crystals or something? I get confused on the movies...I know there's a showdown in a cemetery, but I haven't seen them in a LONG time The cemetery fight is in the first film, and the magic crystals are in the sequel, Warlock II: The Armageddon , which I just watched. Its...

Warlock (1989): Babby's first satanic movie, in the best possible way. I remember how this thing blew my mind when I was 12 or so, and it still holds up. Likable, in many places genuinely well-written cheese.

Future Robo Daltanious: https://i.imgur.com/9UdRID2.jpg Tadao Nagahama's Robot Romance Trilogy, of which Daltanious is the fourth unofficial part, is known for being somewhat proto real robot in tone, in that it combines classic meat-and-potatoes super robot action with surprisingly hefty sociopoli...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Hot take maybe, but I think what contributed to KotM's lukewarm reception was that it kinda fails as a visual spectacle, and this is coming from someone who really wanted to like the movie. I liked many of the thematic things it does, I liked the music, and for what I've heard, the director seems to...

Re: 2018 Positivity Thread (Good things that happened, you came across, etc.)

Something that's different from last year: I live in the northern armpit of the EU, but even here a steady trickle of electric vehicles has started to appear: Kias, Hyundais, Toyota hybrids, Nissan vans, BMW i3s, and yes, some Teslas as well. It's heartening to see, considering how few models are st...
