Re: 1001 Animated Films You Should Watch Suggestions Thread - UPDATED 1/JULY/2017 (ALMOST 850 FILMS!)

LIST HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH SUGGESTIONS FROM DK VINE, TWITTER AND OTHER WEBSITES I WAS RECOMMENDED TO CHECK OUT, AS OF 18:38 - 30/JUNE/2017. To try and expand the scope of what's included on the list, I took to asking a couple of animation enthusiasts on Twitter and was sent to some websites listing...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Went and saw Baby Driver this week. Please go and see it, if you can. It's the best live-action film I've seen since Fury Road . Film-making wise, it is one of the most ambitious films I have ever seen, and easily blows every other 'big-brand franchise/superhero/Star Wars' movie out of the water. Ev...

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

Ended up watching episodes 14-17 of Gurren Lagann today (mostly, though I'll explain that in a bit). Before I get into my thoughts on each episode, I'd like to say that I'm really getting into the show now, to the point where I honestly considered binge-watching as much of the show as I could until ...

Re: How many people in this forum would support an Instrumentality for mankind?

I have a feeling that if all of mankind were to come together into a collective hive mind, it would be as if everyone was on Twitter and constantly tweeting everything that came to mind, with no way of blocking it out and everyone follows each other. In short, it would be hell. Regardless, as someon...

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

Sat down and watched episodes 10-13 of Gurren Lagann over the last couple of days, and I must admit that I'm actually starting to like the series. As usual, I'll post my thoughts on each episode: Episode 10 I didn't realize it until now, but I've become quite endeared to the cast of the show. Like I...

Re: [Music] Songs on repeat

For some reason, I've been listening to the infamous soundtrack for the original Doom 's SEGA 32X port. What's so infamous about it? Well, what I assume must have happened during production of the port is that whoever was in charge of the music took the MIDI files for Bobby Prince's original music f...

I've just come back from watching episodes 8 & 9 of Gurren Lagann , so let's discuss 'em for a bit! Episode 8 (which I'm gonna put in a spoiler just this once given its content) Huh, that actually kinda got to me. I think Kamina's death was one of the earliest things I'd heard about the ...

Re: Star Wars

The criticisms here involve Disney constantly being unaware of the visions of the directors they hire. This shouldn't even be a thing that happens this often since this is a movie business, and producers supposedly watch at least some the filmography of the directors they hire. I mean, three extens...

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

I ended up watching episodes 5-7 of Gurren Lagann last night, so I thought I'd talk about each individual episode for this post. Episode 5 I actually really like this episode; it's tied with Episode 3 as being my favourite in the series so far. I've always had something of an interest in 'culture cl...

Re: Star Wars

You know what would make a cool Star Wars spin-off? An anthology film. I was thinking about The Animatrix , and I couldn't help but wonder what it would be like if Disney got 7-8 unique directors to make shorts based around a general theme like "it's about Star Wars" , and then let them do...

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

Didn't have anything to do on Sunday, so I decided to watch some anime. I watched the first two episodes of Black Lagoon and episodes 3 & 4 of Gurren Lagann (which I'd started watching a couple of weeks back, and then fell out of when I had stuff to do). Black Lagoon This was one of those shows ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Hopefully Warner Brothers will force a female co-writer to aid Whedon on drafting Batgirl. I'm gonna bet $5 that if this does happen, there's going to be an awful non-troversy, driven mainly by man-children and people in hate groups, that will more than likely overshadow the actual film. There are ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

I decided to read through that Whedon's Woman script out of curiosity, and lawdy is it bad! I mean, I didn't think the script to the actual movie was that great (my issues lie with its staggeringly woeful presentation more than anything else, now that I've had time to reflect on the movie), but at l...

I make no pretense about my utter loathing of modern superhero movies, and indeed most big budget franchise films made by peo...
