Movies & TV-shows Bernd 06/25/2021 (Fri) 08:20:47 [Preview] No. 44206
Previous one is autosäging.

Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie.
I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too.
One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.

Watched the first episode.
The great majority is what any of us could expect, half the characters behaves like homos, couple of them are homos, stronk women everywhere, every cis white male is a douchebag, every PoC male is a love interest of white women... Also evil corpo.
The heroine is a high school teacher who is very liked by her students because she speaks their lingo, calls them "dude" and fist-bumps them, obviously this is what zoomers do. She took an "early american cartography" class in college, and she is well versed in how evil colonist took away the lands of the natives. By the twist of fate the representative of the evil corpo is her brother.
The backstory is still interesting just enough to watch the second episode. Then probably that will decide if I drop it or not. I wanted into the tv-show spinoff of Silence of the Lambs, Clarice is the title I think, but that was unbearable, same propaganda shit.

After two episodes watched. This series is the literal wet dream of people like those who made that Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle. And now I'm waiting for the teeming millions to state the opposite.
Not a bad show as far as acting and story goes. A bit annoying that ideological bias they set up the roles I mentioned before I'm waiting the teeming millions again to cry "it's not propaganda" again., but it is not as annoying as in Big Sky was, so I just might watch some more episodes sometimes.

This Australian classic we're gonna watch on the 3rd, at 11 and 23 CET.
It's about a bloke kept at home by his mom for 40 years. Then he gets out into the world for the first time. The scenes of this part was directed by different directors who weren't allowed to watch each others work. This makes every experience of Bubby's more unique.

Bad Boy Bubby is a curious one. I think they put some thought in that, figured a couple of motifs and they followed those consequently.
Bubby is a Janus like character, he is a child and a man. Deprived from opportunities to learn and social interactions, he follows those role models he sees and fits himself into the only society he knows. He also experiments with the knowledge he gains, and makes discoveries on his own. Then the world opens up suddenly where he meets others and he uses the tools he was given. But he also gets new role models, and his mind, freed, now sucks the new information in itself like a sponge.
In the new world he tries to find his place, not consciously, he floats along with the flow of events, and everything turns out well, giving the story a fairy tale air to it.
The aforementioned trick with the directors also piles a bit of surrealness on top, and unpredictability. Couple of times one can ask "how have we got to this scene?" or "what's going on?" since they were seemingly thrown in without any prelude.
Nice touch adding the mongs and the scenes with them. Those were very different from the normal flow of the movie.

I think he is kind of a Mowgli of sort as well.
Pic #4 seems like a false advertisement.

So here's my review of "Gangsta Rap"

Watched the entire movie. Enjoyed and laffed how it made jabs at multiple rap artists throughout different timelines. If you ever played GTA San Andreas, you'll easily be reminded of OG LOC while watching the movie. Overall bretty gud :DD

But, it was a little unnerving. I can't imagine being around the main protagonists for over 5 minutes. Let alone working for them as a music manager. But I guess that was the point of the movie tbh. I didn't like eating sections either. They were gross. But again, why the movie producer chose to do it.

Question to bernds here from the stream:

Who exactly is "Prr" and "Ecco2" from the stream? They were in a stream I attended and behaved in such an odd manner among others there. There's one ecco here, but I am not sure of the other.

We had a conversation about this on sportschan /76/ board. He never responded to what anyone asked him there.


Unsure what to make of this.

Bernd 09/11/2021 (Sat) 08:29:05 [Preview] No.44973 del
What do you mean odd manner? Also which stream was it?

Bernd 09/11/2021 (Sat) 17:22:19 [Preview] No.44974 del
Here's what you should know: we are not affiliated to Pachouli and co., we don't datamine or spam.
If you see not entirely Berndish, "odd manner" in the chat on our cytube channel, it is for the fact that the stream isn't for Bernd, but Bernd is also invited. I invite Bernd because in the past my longest stay was on the late Krautchan and that subculture had the most impact on me, they are familiar bunch, and I know Bernd might be interested in the movies. Bernd is welcomed and can add his Berndish comments.
Those random posts from torpoters sounds like someone is trying to stir the fecal matter (or putting a friendly spin on it: just banter or jest a bit). And to be honest your comment here: >>44966
>blaming the board/site owner for it
...sounds actually like what you seem to do just now.
I don't know your intentions, but now I will assume they are clean and honest, so I can tell you: playing imageboard investigator based on random comments by random people in random posts will cause more confusion and harm than anything. You won't find out Pachouli's address and won't walk up to his door and kick him in the 'nads. It's just creating witch hunts and running around chasing ghosts.
You don't trust us? You shouldn't. You shouldn't trust anyone on imageboards. In fact you shouldn't trust anyone on the internet. You are a grown up, you should be able to decide what you share (wait, you didn't even share who you are - but demand to know who other people are - such manners) or what to keep to yourself.
With the streams we offer a couple of hours entertainment - which comes as part of movie and part of chat. Nothing more, nothing less. Really is nothing else to waste more word on.

I don't really have the intention to do that. I have better things to do. Him and his group have been causing trouble for months on websites. Other people on other chans have had to deal with the same thing. It's a big problem for others. But, that's going off topic

Ofc. Was just a question

Saw kc died and then saw kohl turn to bunk. So I am here and just wanted to highlight concerns from others. And ofc the internet as it is is not secure. It was never meant to be.

A classic is getting ruined by Apple.
It's a while I read the Foundation (and the rest of the books in the series) so maybe my memory fails me, but who are these people?
Jared Harris is generally a good pick - he did well in the Terror and Chernobyl -, he plays Seldon, and to be honest that chick delivered a couple of lines well, I liked their conversation when they met.
I see familiar faces in the supporting cast, some breddy gud, some meh, not cringe all in all.
Looks like a run-off-the-mill sci-fi otherwise, a bit of Blade Runner feeling with the sounds, and the aesthetics too to some extent.

Btw I'm not a huge fan of the books, I read them since they are kind of a "must read classics" in sci-fi. I'm not sure if I'm gonna watch the show, I can't really give much fuck about it.

Watched the first two episodes. From the Foundation it has about what's the Wikipedia page tells about the novel's plot, otherwise it's about that PoC girl and her relationship problems, and how they have to preserve diversity in the Encyclopedia. Or the Encyclopedia has to be about that or something like that.

I found a better tv-show: Truth seekers.
It's made by those guys who made that police comedy playing in a small town, I forget the title and Shawn of the Dead (I think).
The fatso is some tinfoil hat ghosthunter nutjob who's main hobby is listening to number stations. And then comes the diversity and they hunt supernatural phenomenons together. I started the second episode today but have not yet watched through.
It's not great, but better than Foundation.

As for Memento: >>44660
It's a good concept chopping the movie up like that and watching the scenes backward. Makes me want to watch it in chronological order.
It's pretty grim to be honest. At one point for no fucking reason, out of his own murderous impulse he decides to kill Ralphie. And he does that in a way that makes sure he won't feel remorse at his killing (after that doesn't matter anyway), so he will be able to execute that idea.

And now Don't Be a Menace: >>44890
It's okay if you watched a couple of negercore movies, familiar with gangster rap, and GTA San Andreas. Or you live in the ghetto yourself (until you turn 21). The jokes aren't great, and somehow you hear the laugh track despite they did not use that in the movie (it's for tv-shows anyway). The list of those ghetto nigging movies is surprisingly long, and they got inspirations from those, well it is a parody of those so no surprises of direct references.

A new Hungarian movie will be released this October, the background for the story is the 2006 riots when masses protested after Gyurcsány "we fucked up" speech was leaked and he did not resign. The timing is perfect since election is coming up in next April, and the primary election I mentioned in the politics thread will just be concluded.
Supposedly there will be a dubbed version with the title "The Cost of Deception", I try to get a copy somehow, or a Hungarian version with English subs, we'll see. And maybe we could watch that on some Movie Night.

So the Truman show. What a grandiose movie to watch. Literally one of the most darkest and sinister movies I've ever watched. Really shows how humanity is kinda fucked a lil bit in the heda. You get the feeling that people are both very evil, very dull and very easily amused after seeing The Truman Show.

The movie's also a good allegory for the internet and current social media platforms. It's pretty easy seeing the paralels between the 2 things (this movie and social media). Overall good moffiee. Recommend bernd sees it.

Oh I stopped watching this >>45092 after the 3rd episode. Beside the obvious flaws, it's just not entertaining. No characters which could be relatable either. Also new actors appear with more central role, and they are not good enough.

Real problem is, they're gonna do this with all of 'em. How they fucked up the Takeshi Kovacs series too. What will be the next they'll murder? Neuromancer?

I think it unites two themes, the Big Brother type of reality shows (which I assume was new-ish when this movie was made) and the questioning of reality, the illusion that surrounds us.

It's a political satire about communism. It depicts certain events which happened the '50s, so in a way it's kinda specific to Hungary, but similar stuff happened all over in the Eastern Block. I think for others, from all over the world, too it is digestible and the humour can be understood.

Found another tv-show, Welcome to Utmark.
It plays somewhere in the remote northern areas of Norway, where Laplanders live, and they border Russia.
For now only two episodes I've watched, so I'm not sure about the whole thing, it potentially can turn out to be interesting. But it is so depressing. Very many details of the people there living their miserable life, very believable, it's like I fuckin know all those people. Really down in the dirt. I would call it hyper-realistic, and not something as pleasant to watch as entertainment. But here and there there's a trace of humour, and I see many potential ways how the story can evolve. But maybe it won't.
Sure it can't be Northern Expsure, but a bit of light at the end of the tunnel would be nice, or stack the shit so high, that it reaches the point of being not believable that it could happen irl.

>how depressing was it to live in the Eastern Bloc bernd?
I had a happy childhood more or less. I have warm memories related to my family and friends. What I experienced from the system was something tense then depressing. The unlimited power of party functionaries, and how everyone feared of them, taking lightly people in the positions of power was rare. The rules to follow, the uniforms to dress in (like the pioneer one for kids). Standing in lines.
Then the regime change came and I felt the stress in the adults, how they spoke, how they behaved. They feared they will shoot at the people, how they did in '56.
Stuff like that.

Many things to write about this film, many things to reflect, and many things to give context to. So just couple of stuff, my opinion, observations, and kind of a trivia.

1. Was asked, if it's an anti-communist propaganda.
Hard question to reply. And this will be a long musing.
It was made by communists. In 1969 if you weren't communist, you couldn't get a camera (state property) in your hand, couldn't get financial support (from the state) for a project like a film. But it was different times than the '50s, the failed revolution of 1956 made sure of that. And the events that transpired in the early '50s alienated the whole society - communists too - against the closed clique of leadership, they gave enough to get criticized by the posterity.
The hero of the film, Pelikán the dikekeeper, sometimes used to voice the creators' thoughts about communism and the evil that was done (intentionally or by mistake), they don't just show, they tell via him. Good example when Pelikán had the conversation with the bishop in jail. The bishop says, that the Church stood for 2000 years, and the Hungarian kingdom for 1000. They'll endure more, and he implies the communism will fall soon. Then Pelikán replies noone can start out 1000 years old. Somewhere everything has to start, and mistakes from learning the trade happens. It's the creators way of saying that the fault isn't in the system, it was just so new it had to come over its childhood illnesses.
The choice of the hero too supports that it was made by communists for communists. The audience usually supposed to identify themselves with the heroes of the stories. And this story presents a communist to them, with impeccable past (from a poor worker family, hid communists during the Horthy era) who might be simple, and not as knowledgeable ideologically, might not understand everything from the ideology, but believes in the cause, believes it's for the greater good, believes that the comrades upstairs know what they do, trustworthy, and can follow orders (to some extent...). And in 1969 the intended audience was communist and the hero is a person they would willingly associate with, an easy alter ego for them.
No, it really isn't anti-communist, even tho the criticism is directed towards it.

As for propaganda. It is. Not just because almost all films/movies can be considered as propaganda (even those which were made for the sole purpose of making profit, they follow certain trends, and add to the sound of the others, amplifying the message unconsciously), but this was made for shaping feelings and thoughts, not to spur deeds, but to put to ease, help to process the past, to give some closure. The humour also offers solace among the oppression of the present. Humour in general was used by the powers that be as an outlet to channel the anger, and make the people more docile and manageable. Political humour was alive and well, thriving in the system.
Sure the film was banned for a decade, but we can think of it as putting it onto ice, with the passing years putting some distance between the now and the past events. And someone upstairs had to give the green light to make this movie in the first place, after the script went through several layers of the bureaucracy.
Picrel is the leader of culture politics, who banned The Witness. He was one of the convicted during the show trials of 1949-50, the film refers to.

2. The role of Pelikán as a medium for a bunch of themes, topics, and thoughts.
He isn't just a central figure whose deeds moves the events forward (or rather the passive sufferer of the events moved by others beyond him). As I mentioned above he is also a speaking tube for the creators. He also shows us the difference in the life of the hardworking people and the privileged group of ruling comrades - like his visits to Comrade Virág. He teaches us the difference between theory and practice (the pool isn't for the people to swim). He also demonstrates stoicism and a weird optimism in the face of all the hardships.

3. The rule of threes
Follows of the example of great many Hungarian folk tales, organizes stuff in threes. Like his promotions (pool, amusement park, orange research - two failures and a success - third times the charm the English also says), or his local antagonist from the village: Csetneki, the ex-fascist dude who reported him during the war (and probably for the pig too), he appears once when they hand out the meat at the butcher shop (he is the last one who got meat, actually the only one we can see getting any), in the pub singing, and when he arrives late to dose the fire. Three times in jail with Gulyás and the bishop (before the trial and death row). Etc.
Not everything is organized in this way, but the technique is apparent enough.

Bernd 11/07/2021 (Sun) 19:50:37 [Preview] No.45479 del
4. Fascists always land on their feet.
Both ex-fascist antagonist, Csetneki (whom I mentioned above) and Gulyás, who served the Horthy and the Szálasi regimes before, tormenting Pelikán is some ways, now they exploit the rules and inner working of the system to shit on Pelikán some more.
It is true, irl many low level communist thugs were thugs of the previous regimes.

5. The White Horse
On one hand it's a mythological creature of Hungarian folk tales, and the Hungarian mythology, a symbol of power originating from the gods or the divine order, the animal form of the táltos (Hungarian shaman).
On the other in general leaders frequently rode white horses all over the world and depicted on the back of those (think of Napoleon).
It's a famous meme about Horthy arriving to Budapest on the back of a white horse in front of his troops, after the Romanians beat the 1919 Hungarian Soviet, to take over the country. Similarly when Pelikán in jail, the bishop mentions the Americans arriving, and Pelikán retorts: "I know, Mr Truman on a white horse". There's also the painting of a bald guy - uncanny resemblance to Rákosi Mátyás - on a white horse a soldier and a sailor on his sides in the room of Comrade Virág. In fact Comrade Virág appears from "behind" the horse - it is painted on a door - as an embodiment of the state power, a shaman of communism.
Now that we are at this room and Rákosi...

6. The photo of Rákosi in Comrade Virág's room
It's an iconic photo of the Stalinist leader. It was customary to hang a photograph in every room of the great leaders, chiefly Rákosi and Stalin - to watch over us, mere mortals. There are other pictures of the former throughout the film, curiously (or maybe not so curiously) Stalin is missing.
While this particular photo was widely known, featured in textbooks for example, it wasn't for hanging it upon walls, so it is striking to see it in its huge black and white reality at that place in that colorful scene. Maybe also adding to the importance of Comrade Virág, who could have allowed that photo to be displayed in such way.

7. The Great Wise Leader himself is also missing
The highest ranking communist character appearing in person is Comrade Bástya, assuming the avatar of Farkas Mihály, the minister of defence. The Great Wise leader is only mentioned, and participates on one occasion via a phone conversation with Comrade Bástya. We don't hear his voice however. We also don't know what is his name in the film.

Funny thing, I followed the show back then (as it went worse and worse), and did not watch the very last episode. Till this year. It gathered dust somewhere on my hard drive, and decided to watch it early 2021. It did not make much sense and felt crappy.

Quite a lot of background story those give. In this episode there were references to those. I think it can be watched without them. Maybe you could read the plot of the original show on Wikipedia or somewhere, if you don't wanna bother with previous seasons.
But essentially:
The hero of the show, Dexter, is a serial killer, mom was killed in front of him (and his brother) when he was a kid. A cop adopted him and raised him. Recognized the psycho and tried to channel it, he gave him a code. He grew up became part of the police force as forensic analyst, murdered killers and dumped them in the ocean. He got gf and a kid. Then things started to fall apart around him, everyone died (like his step-sister, who maybe turned out she was his sister or some drama shit whatever), he fled from Florida to Alaska.
That's it, now you can watch this season.

Ofc not. It was about the would be dog nail clipper, the tard vet.
Veteran, not veterinarian. Maybe that was his mistake. If he had been a tard vet instead of a tard vet he might have succeeded.

Witcher S2 felt flat and not interesting. Every episode:
1. bunch of who-the-fuck-are-these-people are talking about unimportant fake places and events (srsly, just damn too many people with short screentime to make them important or make the viewer invested in them and their fate - ok I remember most from the books and W1);
2. Yennefer fake struggles;
3. Ciri fake struggles;
4. Geralt fake broods;
5. Geralt kills a monster;
I dunno maybe I just have a surfeit from shows and fantasy and people talking in hushed tone to generate fake tension.

What's that even supposed to be? A double wall? So that if you breach one, you still have to deal with another?
I guess this makes ladders impractical, because you have to scale the second one. But you can't get ladders there because the first one is blocking you.

That is a double wall, and that would be a good idea for the reason you described: one more wall to scale. But the second line should be higher at least a bit, and neither of them should have parapets on the inside. That way from the second wall they can be attacked with bows or even with stones or javelins, etc. and they couldn't hide behind the parapet. And the second line should not have parapet for similar reason (can be attacked from further back from the ground or the next ring of wall). So the double wall isn't a bad idea, but it was done poorly.
My real problem is this section. Towers should be high platforms to attack enemy from above, and those towers would be awesome to keep the attackers at the base of the walls under fire. But for that the tower has to be forward from the wall a little, and they moved it back creating a space where noone would attack because there are better ones right on the sides of the gate. No reason to build that corner of the wall like that, the ground should be a problem since they did the same on the other side with the other tower, so it was a decision of aesthetics not an architectural/engineering one. And not a military for sure. They even would have gained more space inside the town.
And then the second ring, why aren't towers on the corners? And instead of those bs round wall sections? A tower instead of those would be way better for placing troops or even catapults or scorpions.

Not sure when this trend started (Game of Thrones was very prominent in this, but probably it was present before that) but now they all have these spectacular animations with epic music. They are tiring as fuck. It's nice to see them once, then by the second episode any sane person just jump them over. Half minute of waste of time. Now the intro of Lost was done well. Or The Sopranos with A3's Woke Up This Morning. And back then they did 24 episode seasons, not 6-10 like these days.

Here's what I mean.
1. Game of Thrones - iconic for many viewers, favored both for visuals and the tune
2. Around the World in 80 Days - this one is a recent victim of leftliberal media Kulturkampf, but not a bad show, pretty good intro, grabs the essence of the story, did not watch it entirely until I dl'd this one;
3. The Sopranos - awesome, just wanna listen that song again
4. Lost - bam, this is the best, it doesn't even gives the time to react and reach for the jump 10 sec forward button, a brief pause between two scenes

Now as for the Beforeignes, it's not that easy since all the episodes have different intros, or opening credits, I'll see if I can grab a few.

It's not that hard to skip intros.
My problem is they are mostly useless. They spend huge amount of money for making shit that shouldn't exist - unless it's exceptionally great that makes people want to watch it over and over.

>Is this show any good?
Beforeigners? Not bad. It's about people arriving from previous ages to our time via wormholes or such time shifting places. It is clear that the intention of the creators was to draw a parallel with mass-migration of our days, and how our ancestors would seem botheringly different for us so we should shut the fuck up about migrants with different cultures and just accept them. But it is done in a way that it parodies this thing and certain phenomenons (e.g. trans-temporals...), and while it is advertised as crime drama slash sci-fi, it comes off as a low-key comedy. A bit similar to Welcome to Uthmark (see above) where what was intended to be serious turns about to be funny, and I'm not sure what really was the intention of the creators. Both shows are Norwegian btw, one actor for sure played in that one.
It has two seasons. I'm finishing the first one today sometimes. The story is solid, there are good plot twists, characters are good, actors do their job well. It worth a watch.

This deserves a review, because it was quite good.
An unlikely (anti-)hero as far as occupation goes, with unclear motivation. He clearly wasn't happy with his life, but was behind more in his "enjoyment" of causing sorrow around him then just being a psychopath/sociopath/whateverpath? He did not really enjoyed it, but he seemed to need it, like a compulsion.

Was thinking about watching this movie called F.I.S.T.

At a loading dock in Cleveland in 1937, supervisor Mr. Gant hires a new worker, Polish American Lincoln Dombrowsky. Gant tells Dombrowsky that he will be paid for his regular shift only even if he must work overtime, and that any merchandise he damages will come directly out of his pay. When Dombrowsky drops a few carts of tomatoes, his pay is docked and another worker is fired for helping him collect the fallen merchandise.

Resentful of these unfair labor practices, Hungarian-American worker Johnny Kovak leads a riot. The laborers go to the office of Boss Andrews, where Kovak believes he negotiates a deal for the workers, only to find out the next day that he and his friend Abe Belkin have been fired.

Welcome to the Dollhouse: a movie about a bernadette growing up and experiencing the rough life due to neurotypicals being just all around mean spirited people. It's a highly praised movie and is noted for being accurate for kids during their early teen years.

So. Moj Ata Socialisticni Kulak
This one: >>46826
It's not a genius work, but a solid ok one. I genuinely had a couple of good laffs.
The themes were familiar, but I think I misunderstood a couple of things on the first view, so did not mind to watch it twice (luckily most movies we stream are quite passable twice a day). Many themes and even motifs are similar to what's in the Witness, it's not surprising both plays in the same time period, in similar political environment. The queue for food, the black butchering, the silly communist mantras, etc etc. Even such things that at one point Pelikán (the hero of Witness) beats one of his kids for some prank (which led to a dangerous situation), and Jozha (the father in Moj Ata) punishes Tincek for his poems (which got him into trouble). There are many such parallels, I want to point to one more in particular, the depiction of clergy, how they fall victim to the system in both.
However in Moj Ata, I noticed an underlying theme, which might or might not be intentional on behalf of the creators, so I might just imagine into it. This is related to the clergy. It seems to me that the communist system there depicted in religious role, like the Church, and a competitor of the Church. Not just by taking the land, but for the people, in the views on death/mortality, procession like celebration with holding "religious" icons (Stalin and Tito), the wall decorations of the homes, and probably a couple of other things.

This was the first movie of the two leading actor (Not Sure is one of 'em), and for the director/writer Wes Anderson too.
Not a bad one, not a good one. There were enjoyable scenes (the top was the bookstore robbery), funny and entertaining, the rest were meh. As a whole these scenes, what happened felt kinda random, although the story is a continuous whole. Maybe stoners would enjoy it from the beginning to the end.
The looks of the movie (the "cinematography"), the colors, their use, the clothing, the aesthetics in general, plus often the audio, the music as well reminded me of couple of Lynch works, namely Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet. Probably the surrealist turns of events also added to the illusion.
I liked how the background of the scenes were used, story influencing events played out there in parallel with the activity of the foreground characters.

While not really comparable to what you listed, you could try older French cinema. I'm thinking of Delon, Belmondo, Funes, Jean Marais films. From the top of my head. The first two had more action movies, Funes is famous for his comedy, and Marais I'm not familiar with really I just saw the Fantomas movies.
Belmondo has a cool(ish) North African WWII movie, uh I can't recall the title.

Watched Rings of Power and want to write a bit about it sometimes. Many things to say about it, I'll just want to make couple of points, but now only one thing. One thing that plagues recent telly shows. They create a bunch of main characters and separate their scenes with separate stories, which are also divided into short episodes, happening far apart both in time and space, denying a logical, coherent story from them. And considering today's telly shows are so goddamn short, 6-12 episodes in a season, this gives them too short screen time to get to know them, get to know their stories, see their motivations, their arc, see their actions, etc. and not just hear a load of empty lines told in hushed but strained tone to give tension to the story.
Watching Walking Dead these days. Not too long seasons (first season has 6 episodes but basically follows Rick and that's it..., that is a lot of screentime), but the story isn't scattered into many strands and even those keep close together to the core events, and just complementing it. Back in the day Walking Dead was considered a tedious filler filled melodramatic crap, at least some of it. I did thought that too in case of certain episodes and finally dropped it about season 6. Now compared to Rings of Power this thing is fucking genius. There is story, there is action, there is drama, there is acting(!!!!), there is character development, there is a watchable show. Srsly. It feels great now.

Something else.
I watched/listened some nerd rage/gloat yt videos where they bitching about essentially everything in the show, and glad that it seems to fail among the audience. They are right in almost everything. These yt videos shouldn't exist.
Some of these also cut a footage of a bunch of nerds in some nerdbar with a huge telly on the wall above the bar erupting in cheer when the stuff coming from the erupting volcano blows Galadriel over and covers her at the end of an episode. This phenomenon, this consuming shit in a herd of fanboys also shouldn't exist either.
I find this fanboyism 9001% insane, and their hatewatching this turd similarly.
I understand the yt reviews. This show is obviously one that can generate them large number of views, and essentially together with Amazon can ride the popular unpopularity wave. They are generating buzz for the show, which shouldn't exist at all, they are doing a favor for Amazon, while themselves profiting from it.

Okay, back to the show.
One of the main problems, as I mentioned earlier is the pacing and it's scatteredness (in time and place).
Frequent criticism that it rapes the lore Tolkien created, and it's not Tolkien-like at all.
I think it is very Tolkien like, at least very book LotR. It is boring, schematic, empty characters, there is no character development, the "good" characters aren't act like they were, lacks humour, lacks romance.
It is also very movie trilogy LotR-like. Simply because all the scenes consists of recycled shit from it. Some are absolutely blatant.
And it is very anti-Tolkien, centering around all these stronk women doing manly things. Anti-epic as hell (maybe with the exception of the first episode), undersized everything. No fellowships, just 2-3 people cooperating and whatnot.

Found funny in the aforementioned yt vids how they and their audience, and the show's angry nerd audience named some characters. Guyladriel, Feminem, not-Sauron, not-Gandalf... I also came up with two, Frodoe and Samantha Gamgee. Too bad noone will know these products of my genius.

Now a bit about how clumsy and heavy handed Amazon is with the political message they want to cram down in our throats.
The aforementioned Walking Dead is a great example and a parallel. It is choke full of strong women, lesbians, gays, niggers, spics and gooks. I remember people being salty about it, no wonder, it is an obvious manipulation, propaganda. But it still has a story, drama, and everything I listed here >>49032 , not much negative echo over the internet, as part of the zombie theme wave in the media all over in those years, it is considered one of the flagships, and generally good title and important franchise (spinoffs and media and whatnot).
The stronk woman and PoC shoehorning and inclusiveness in mainstream media products goes back to many decades. It's nothing new. The failure of Rings of Power, and the indignation it sparked, isn't in the agenda it presents, but the overall shittiness of the show and retarded handling of The Message, and not the racist nerds who Amazon wishes to spin it.

Besides in previous seasons they killed off a bunch of key and important characters, with strong well established personas, and in the 9th they brought in a bunch of literelly whos and now they shoehorn them into every scene, despite the role they play in those settlements should be negligible. They even imported a deaf (PoC) woman, whom Daryl just can't work without efficiently. Her impediment should have killed her long time ago, but considering how many times everyone else with absolutely good hearing got ambushed by the loudly gurgling and fumbling zombies, she isn't really worse off.

Generally the horror genre isn't that great, although I enjoyed watching some in my time. This one isn't particularly scary. At all to be honest. Some effects are kinda ridiculous, when people dragged around and whatnot, but at least there are no jumpscares. Tropes tied to ghosts were there, like possession, or moving objects. Some cool ideas, like replaying an event of the past with the people at present. Historical setting was okay, looked authentic I guess, most of the movie was filmed in a Hungarian skansen, people wore contemporary clothes.
The story is fine, and the solution of the complication is classic, hero traveling to the land of the dead.

I got into Gundam franchise recently. To be more specific I am watching Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. I got surprised how good it is. I think I expected it to be more cartoonish maybe, but its actually a serious work about horrors of war. I like how they portray people on both sides of the conflict. Even though you have designated villains so to speak, seeing them die, or loose friends or lovers really made me symphatize with them.
Zeta Gundam is 2nd in the franchise and its a continuation of previous series so im missing some context sadly, but I manage. It's currently free to watch on official gundam youtube channel. Unfortunately the 1st original series is not there.

I also watched The 08th MS team. It's much shorter series and is more like a standalone story, although placed in the context of the original series. It's good, but not as good as Zeta tbh. Has a very cool fight near the end of the series (not the final battle though).

There are more series uploaded on that channel but idk which are good or not. From what I heard they get rotated after some time so if someone is interested then better to start now rather than later.

I watched half of the Evangelion. I enjoyed it but I had a feeling I'd be having more fun if I watched it as a teenager.
Despite the big robot they feel very different. Gundam is about horrors of war and has very strong sci-fi vibe. NGE is more about the main character growing up, and it has more fantasy feel.

This show is breddy gud considering how shit the others are.
Hugh Laurie brings his form. The rest of the cast is fine. To be honest awkward of cringe acting fits in there so not sure how actors could ruin it.
The first season starts out great and it gets more hilarious as they pile upon the absurdity. For a while this works, by the end of the season the fun level drops too.
Despite this it's still watchable, and season 2 has his moments too.
I really need to demand money from HBO to promote their stuff.

Watched this movie, Shakes the clown, as a gag. But then I ended up actually liking it a lot. It's funny and wacky, but surprisingly dark sometimes. Here's some info from its wikipedia article

>When the film was first released, it was widely panned, but in recent years, reaction has become more favorable, largely due to how the film handled the serious topic of alcoholism. Shakes the Clown has since become a cult classic.[4][5]

>Betsy Sherman of The Boston Globe called it "the Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies"

We should watch this in a stream tbh. Would be funy.

Also Robin Williams shows up in the movie too if you liek him.

So what kind of awesome telly shows are running these days?
Took a look into Whitstable Pearl first episode, set in Bri'un(?I guess). Single mom hero. Second scene a rude white man confronts a black guy, who has to flex his cop muscle to make the white senior back down. Later it turns out the heroin has a black (step?) son, who prepares to university. Her daughter(?) has a falling out with her white boyfriend who looks very guilty of something and feels ashamed in front of the mom. This bloke has a blabbering idiot of a father.
I stopped watching here, but picked up Three Pines, which is set in Canada. Starts with an all female protests on the streets, I think mostly native injuns. White male cops enter the scene and starts to beat them up. Video player closed.
I guess I'm gonna rewatch Get Shorty.

I want to write about this. Our Xmas Special features it, and it's a curious one.
While watching one might get the wrong impression what the movie is about very easily, and think the movie will be about what he just watched and leave before finishing the thing.
This is how the watching experience goes through the movie:
- oh this movie is about theme A
- hmm, maybe not theme A but B
- heh, it's actually theme C
- not at all it turned into theme D
- it's none of the above it was theme E
Then in the end one realizes that the movie from the very beginning was theme F. Which is quite cool.
Everyone leaving before the last realization will got the wrong impression, and gonna have a wrong opinion about it.
Now people can have differing opinion of theme F. Is it good or not. But it's sure that the movie is not about A-E.

I actually like this show. It's silly, the acting seems a bit over the top (but maybe it seems so because its Japanese), but I enjoy the overall mood and the calmness it gives, and I do learn about sumo.
There is an important romantic thread in it, it is done in a bit childish way - again probably for this is a Jap product - and kinda endearing, and it rounds up the personalities of the characters. I like that they lose all their matches, so it's not like "I learnt an important lesson and now I can beat my opponent" style. I also like the settings, maybe I should watch more Jap movies or telly shows.
I don't really have anything to complain about. Maybe I could say why "this and that" isn't in it, but then I could just pick something else if I wanted those. It's liek if I wanted to see gunfights I could pick an action movie instead.
This also made me now remember I should stream Shaolin Soccer.

Tried to investigate the mystery why Odie's name was Magyarized to Ubul in the comics. To make it more messy in the Hungarian dubbed movie they went with the original Odie.
Ubul is in fact a Hungarian name, quite an old one, never used however, so much that I believed it's gibberish, means nothing. It is suggested it has German origin, goes back to Hugbald - Ubaldo forms. So I'm guessing it came with a couple of knights in the first centuries after our kingdom formed, and some now obscure historical figures had it too until it went out of fashion uhh... sometimes.
I did not find explanation why it was picked. Maybe it sounded a bit silly for the translator, and guessed it'll suit the Hungarian ear better, then Odie.

On Endcorner we watched Predator.
Now Wombofix allowed me to rewatch Predator 2
So took the next step and rewatched Predators. Which was a mandatory movie back then due to the Hungarian director. It feels like a remake of the original movie and not a continuation of Predator 2. But the original had a tension which they'll never recreate so they tried to top it with a foreign planet, several predators, and uh, whatnot. Otherwise it's same just worse than the 1. It's not bad.
Then I watched The Predator. I don't think I have seen it, probably would remember. It's a funny movie, and action packed (skewer a bloke via the floor from the basement, bam), it is silly, with lame, bad written characters, and a bunch of pointless shit. Some of the mistakes in this movie is hilarious, or at least I found it hilarious. Like the mom trapped in the basement with some gov agent, then the big predator kills everyone, mom runs up the stairs, and disappears from the movie. She never reconnects with her son, the kid just get put into the lab with the "present" of the normal predator. It's like there was a portal at the top of the stairs which teleported her into a Bag of Holding.
I researched a bit and everyone seems to rage, except AngryVGN and Angry Joe, and I kinda have to agree with the latter blokes. Feels uncomfortable but it was entertaining. Also it helped that I have no expectations, was just curios what is it about.
Now comes Prey sometimes. Oh the Woke. It just screams from this movie and I have not seen a scene from this at all. The Prey of the Sexual Predator is the hero.

Yeah, Pray. It's as Woke as it gets without shoehorning trannies into the story (I might have seen an Indian who was kinda ambiguous looking...)
On a plus side: great scenery, and good action to be honest. Lacking in the fireworks of the previous ones for obvious reasons, but there is some musket and pistol action. What bothers me in these scenes when the injuns pull the bows, and they hold it like that without effort, seemingly capable of doing so indefinitely. I wish movie makers would stop doing that. When Legolas and the rest of the elves do it, it is still bad, but that's just LotR, maybe elves can be superstrong when handling bows, they put an extra point in the longbow specialization.
There are lotsa other stuff in this movie that made me cringe, details what I could tear apart. Like cutting the fish on a slab of stone. Why not use a piece of woods as cutting board? These people appreciated usable tools and preserving knife's edge (especially a stone one's...) would be a priority. And that yoyo axe (slim profiled stone tomahawk that never chips...)! Jesus. BUT. For all the discrepancies and small stuff that doesn't make sense in the previous movies they got a pass from me (not to mention the giant stuff in The Predator) so go hard on Prey for these, it would be unfair.
Other stuff liek... One could go into the gear of the Predator, is it good or bad that they changed them to a less advanced, but I have no real preference in this, and it's just they wanted to go with something different, it was unavoidable in previous installments too.
So the Woke stuff. Hero is a sassy PoC daughter of a single mom who outsmarts and outlives and outcompetes and out-outdoorsmans (she was so skilled in tracking they followed her) all her male peers in the tribe, who gets even with evil white cis males (rape was mentioned but not done) the mass murderers of buffaloes, who outlasts and outsmarts the Predator himself by figuring him out and his equipment as well. And the most important thing: it is a prequel. Which means it's not just a woman who kills a Predator, but she is in fact managed the first time in history to do so. Ladies: women were the first! Women can be more Man, then men themselves. Proofed.
The whole thing is set up that before that date, no predators arrived here (they show how the Predator starts to collect trophies, from snake, through wolf, to bear and arriving to men), and they connect the movie to Predator 2 with a particular trophy.
I enjoyed how the background of the end credits were like the scene separator graphics in the Tracker.
All in all, not a bad movie, in fact would be enjoyable if not the Woke agenda they'd try to jam down on our throat. Alien and Aliens are good examples that the stronk woman movie can be done well, but maybe it's just the political atmosphere that makes these insufferable these days.

(37.77 KB 601x326 Pred2_pistol.jpg)
So here's the pistol from Predator 2.
There the hero gets it from the Predators who reveal themselves in the end after he kills the Predator he fought with. They do it in acknowledgement of his deed, to the honorable opponent who triumphed in a fair fight. It's a trophy. It has to be a revered trophy to give that, and not another weapon they took anytime, maybe around Arnie's adventure, since then or earlier. And the viewer assumes it's from someone who was very hard to defeat, someone who had to kill one of them, they had to pay a high price for it. Perhaps that Predator who died on that occasion was killed with the pistol itself. Since there is a date on it, while the pistol could have been used any other time (yesterday too), it has to signify the date when those events happened - although the date itself doesn't mean much in the context of this post.
But in Prey, the girl got it from a French bloke (who was the least asshole), and gave it to her tribe. While she shot at the Predator with it, it had little role in the fight. Now how this weapon gets into the Predators' possession? They clearly put it into the movie to establish continuity, and make the events in Prey canon, so it is an important piece. Are they gonna make another movie featuring the pistol a bit later after the events in Prey?

There was some other thing I wanted to write about, but I forgot. Oh well.

Okay, I give context.
The show is a sitcom, and it plays in heaven (and Earth) which is like a big corpo, God the CEO, and the dead people are the employees. The heroes of the show are working in the miracle department, where they get the prayers of people and they try to fulfill them. They can only use "natural" means, which means 99,9% of the prayers cannot be fulfilled.
Anyway, in that scene the main chars are watching what they were doing when they were still alive. One guy was a maharaja, the chick was a viking warrioress, and the white bloke was awkward caveman whom was getting rid of by his tribe, because he was a loser, he was told to leave for some bog, where he had to watch for the boogeyman.
That particular video is the life of the chick. The acting in the show is kinda ridiculous in the first place - it is just a silly sitcom.

Watched Best in Hell (2022), the Wagner Group's fictionalized take on the battle of Popasna. Reviews, if you're interested:
https://youtube.com/watch?v=NVM_hRj5Jpo [Embed]

They don't actually say where it takes place or that it's between Wagner and Ukrainians, it's just the "White" and "Yellow" teams. It's not directly propagandistic in a political sense, either, the entire movie is just action, they don't stop to discuss politics and hardly even personal matters and character backstories. I remember just one moment of casual humor, and two moments exposing characters' family backgrounds. Combat is as realistic as it gets, emphasizing artillery as much as infantry and depicting drone recon and the chain of command. Maybe in the end the 1v1 close quarter fights get more cinematographic than realistic. The combat is entertaining, though it took me a while to feel immersed.

As all reviewers note, and it's explicitly said in the movie, both sides are mirror images of each other, the sole difference is the color of their armbands. They both use rational tactics (though they commit mistakes and there's an element of luck) and fight on heroically until the bitter end. One of the reviewers think the target audience is Ukrainians, to convince them they're the same people as Russians. But to me it's obvious the intended audience is potential Wagner recruits in Russia. They show their enemies as courageous and competent so that defeating it makes them even more courageous and competent. They also want to show stoic sacrifices until the end are manly even though, as they also show, it's brothers fighting brothers until annihilation for zero long-term operational impact.

Yes. It is a very condensed action movie.
It is not easy to sit through, despite it's very exciting. Also despite all just action, it doesn't get boring. It's just hard to sit it through.
>One of the reviewers think the target audience is Ukrainians, to convince them they're the same people as Russians.
I dunno. There are 2 or 3 lines, and are very blunt, and kinda out of place. I don't think it could convince anyone. For those who are in the conflict, be either Russian and Ukranian the fact that they look the same, talk the same, use same tactics, and the same thing is happening to both sides (occasionally it's confusing who just died), might not be convincing either since they are emotionally commited to one side. Grossman notes that civil wars, fights between "brothers" are often more bloody, and ruthless for all the emotions involved.
Maybe you are right for the potential Wagner recruits. But I think maybe the real target audience are the outsiders, and especially Westerners, to show what you wrote:
>brothers fighting brothers until annihilation for zero long-term operational impact
Maybe they try to convey that everybody else is outsider and not involved, not threatened. And supporting the war is just good for brothers killing each other. Don't send more weapons.

Finally watched Mobile Suit Gundam film trilogy. The story is quite similar. Our very young hero is thrown into a big space war and has to get a grip, also everyone suffers including the guys on the other side. The war has taken a lot of lifes and recruiting people below 18 years old or civilians with little to no training is not uncommon. It takes place several years before events of Zeta Gundam show. The main characters of both eventually meet in the Zeta show and its obvious to everyone the younger is in the same boots as the guy from the original show, so the older tries to share his wisdom.

A very good watch, recommend.

I also watched some other gundam media, or rather tried. They seem to range from not that interesting to garbage. Can't really compare to the original ones. I decided I'll only be mentioning by name the good ones.

The Gundam trilogy is currently avaiable on N*tflix but sadly not in every country. Zeta has been taken down from the official YT account. Hopefully they'll upload another show soon.

Sort of like this.

At the beginning our protagonist and bunch of other people are forced by circumstances. Their space colony is being blown up to pieces and only escape avaiable is a military space ship. Due to casualties among professional soldiers some civilians decide to help and they stay as soldiers on the ship after the battle.
At the final battle, the chief commander of that other faction notices their soldiers doing poorly and their mechas moving rather slow and asks why is that. Some other officer explains that they're piloted by trainees but assures the commander that they've been fully trained and also are very patriotic.

It started out as a cozy movie about "ebil US govt fueling drug addiction in the US so they can finance their ebil foreign wars covertly". Then they started to shoehorning in more and more stronk PoC women, embodiment of wisdom, will, patience, resolute. Now it's about how these women shepherd impatient childish men, a true masterpiece of our time.

There's a new TV show with Bruce Campbell starring in it. May watch that in the future. There's also some Evil Dead games I could play though. If I have the time.

There was also a reboot movie starring a woman and her children I think. Didn't like it

Maybe they ran out of content to show and decided to use that film to "stretch out the film". Maybe

Since then I discovered The Ark. I couldn't watch more than one and a half episodes.
Background story: the Earth will die so they send Arks to supposedly habitable planets, the story centers around the 1st Ark which they thought has the best chance for success. Some space crap hits the spaceship and destroys the part where the leadership was quartered, and large part of rations and water and such, and the survivors have to make things work.
First the good things: occasionally it has genuinely funny moments. This is rare.
The bad things: the rest. It's woke as fuck ofc which I could ignore if the rest of the things weren't stupid and illogical as fuck. Liek:
The ship has these rotating parts, right, to make gravity. But the rotation "creates gravity" only in the rotating part, due to the centrifugal force. It should be a giant wheel with a long walkway around in it where people can walk on the surface. It's an illusion of gravity but still. The ship doesn't have this, and people can walk at any part of the ship.
Or they decide to grow food, because they lost much of the rations. Some nerd smuggled a big box of soil onto the ship somehow (how???). It's a big box, but not that large to be honest (like a man's height), and they have to produce food for about 150 people! They spread the dirt finger thin, and there are areas has no other use just to walk on it! Why???? Put that shit into tubs or pots! Much better use. Remember this wankery in Seattle? Exactly.
There is this annoying chick who talks fast and a lot, oh so quirky. Her job position is in sewage control. Turns out she is a genius with 4 master degrees! Why would they give her the job of shoveling shit?! She's a fucking rising star! And can't even blame fucking patriarchy since the captain and whatever high officers on the ship were women! Also it's stupid for such character to be chatty, such person spends awful lot of time just reading and thinking and being lost in her own little world doing her projects. She should be awkward in a very different, introvert way.

Oh yeah, the woke shit. They are racist as fuck. For these guys race shouldn't matter because there is no difference right, but they stack the deck with all kinds of people because they are apparently different...
This line was told by a character:
>couples couldn't come together in the Ark, because had to ensure genetic diversity
What the fuck? Are they implying that a couple from the same uh not-race-but-uh-group-culture-thingy is practically incest? Do wokes say that there is actually race despite denying the existence of races? Of there is only 1 human race then how would be a group more diverse with people from whatever part of the world than just from one place?
Btw, I have not noticed East Asians in the movie. No Chinks, Japs, Mongols, Koreans, Vietnamese or such. Weird.
Gurl Power all over. Thin chick beating up men casually. The 4 masters degrees 19 yo. chick - way to present realistic expectations for the young generation of grills, no pressure.

Next one from the Woke list: Shrinking.
Premise: a psychologist instead of validating his patients choose to say what he really thinks (make a decision instead of his patients what to do to make them break their retard cycle). I think this is a great idea, problem is the series doesn't revolve around this, it's just a minor theme which jump starts the story.
The worst crime of the show: it's actually watchable. Since it's kinda comfy it makes the viewer absorb all their brainwashing since he returns to the show for every episode.
So it's about an idiot cis white male psychologist who fucks up at his job and as a parent. He is the father of a 1/16 mixed race daughter, his deceased wife was 1/8 Azn. He has a wise, brilliant scientist half-Jewish boss, but he is also half fuckup because half white guy. Luckily he also has a cool, chatty, stronk black chick co-worker who manages both of them. The hero's gonna have sexual relations with her.
The hero gets a patient a young black man, who sent to therapy for his violent outburst, and beat half-deda some bloke. Don't worry this young black man isn't just some hoodrat, he's from a good family, but he got PTSD for his service in Afghanistan and finds it hard to comform to societal norms. He is a great cook, and all the women in the show finds him hot. The black chick, the neighbour housewife, the daughters ginger friend, and the daughter who develops a crush on him.
The hero also has a flaming homo best friend, whom he amends a long falling out.
Everyone in the show is so open about their emotions, and while mildly outraged they can handle their inner struggles very maturely and they can come over after a couple of enlightening conversations. They are also very open and understanding about sexuality.
As the main course the last episode revolves around a same sex marriage.
It ends with a murder so it's ok.
Finally the actor of Jefferson from Married with Children got a role after 30 years of unemployment. Again he plays the neighbour husband, and his only role is to make his wife look cool and stronk.

Micheal is LOST in a village now. He has a son who is all grown up, but isn't called Walt.
I'm couple of episodes in the first season, I think the second just coming out. Not bad for now.
Very little wokism. Some bad acting, supporting cast is not great at all.
Since they advertise it as "by the execs of LOST" they probably aim for that mystery level. I hope they'll be better with explanations but I try to keep these hopes on realistic levels.

Well I binged this >>50168 basically.
There are some clumsy stuff (liek moral of how ugly is not always bad and nice is not always good), and bad acting, and recycled stuff from Lost.
I think the worst thing is the lack of talent among the actors, and the flat characters they play.
But as for the story and mystery, it gives enough to keep watching. It's an okay show. It will never be as good as Lost was.

Bernd 04/29/2023 (Sat) 09:29 [Preview] No.50170 del
Another factor is the show's length. It's just 10 episodes a season. Lost had ~24 episode seasons (that one year with the writers' strike shortened one considerably, in other shows too), and this allowed lots time to spend on each character and get to know and care about them (or decide that you find them unbearable). Lotsa a time for character build up. I can't say they spent lotsa time on the story to move forward however.

It has a plot, it has mystery, all right acting, and whatnot. Have to rewatch it.

Watched this, it's okay. The second poster represents what's actually in the movie.
It's about an isolated soldier going bonkers slowly from the loneliness, the lack of information, the impressions which he tries to interpret from his scanty knowledge.
I found the setup interesting, reminded me of Alone. Not everyone can handle solitude, and this guy was especially under pressure due to the threats, and the strange happenings. They also show 3 bunkbeds, which means the station was meant to be manned by 6 person. This also has some implications, that by that time they could only afford 1 man per station.
The movie also left some questions. Liek some stragglers could create a life on the surface for themselves. And they weren't keen on embracing the bunker life. What's up with that? I dunno.

Yes, way cool. LSD is the drug of kings.

Without spoiling too much: Leading scientists all around the world commit suicide for no apparent reason after muttering the phrase 'physics doesn't exist'. The story revolves mainly around a nanotechnology scientist, a foul-mouthed cop and an elderly astrophysicist who was sent to Chinese gulag during the Cultural Revolution as they bit by bit uncover the mystery. The three-body problem also plays a major role in it, which states that it's impossible to accurately predict the movement of three bodies in space under the influence of their respective gravities.

Lots of serious discussions to be had over each film.

First being that pulp fiction is more of a Kein movie, whereas El Mariachi is a more Bernd friendly film with more assburger styled dialogue given by the main character of the latter film.

>Hmm, true.
>I did not thought about that. You might be right.

It's a loaded topic to discuss. Just so many serious discussions to be had

For starters:
While El Mariachi follows more of a "show, don't tell" narrative and cinematography throughout the entire film, Pulp Fiction takes the complete opposite direction.

Entire movie's is just so show off ish, but it doesn't say anything really thought provoking. Maybe for normies and keins that enjoy that film. tbh the entire time I was watching Pulp Fiction, I just fast-forwarded times when nothing happened except people talking shit.

And I skipped a lotttttttttttttttttttt of scenes. One new character comes into the movie, they do nothing except "yap yap yap blah blah blah dude I'm such a cool badass!" for liek 10-15 minutes straight. I'm not even exagerattiong. Go watch the film and count all the times a person in the film drones on about literal pointless garbage. Entire movie starts with the 2 protagonist (They show up on and off again in the movie so I dunno) just talking about nothing until they shoot a guy's sofa to scare him.

And the main characters in the film try too hard to act like the most coolest people ever. Which ironically makes them end up looking like, well, not real people. Like a parody of a real person (Unless this is how people in america act all the time. If so, what the fug? :DDD)

Maybe it's the le heroin and le hard drugs that all of the characters do inside the film's universe. Maybe

Contrast this with El Mariachi where people SHOW that they're cool badasses. Sometimes by accident. Everyone acts the way a real person would react, not like a crazy cartoon of a person.

In that movie, it's one scene after the other of suspense, action, some downtime so the audience can wind down and calm their sense, and an ending that concludes everything but not really resolves anything. Which is expected since most people in the criminal underworld rarely ever have a "happy ever after"

And that's what all of the serious discussions I have for now bernds

Bernd 07/14/2023 (Fri) 16:49 [Preview] No.50695 del
How you say it, I get the feeling that the opposite is true. El Mariachi is action packed suited for normies, while Pulp Fiction is srs discussion for Bernd.

Watched Silo.
As a whole, it was gud, an interesting story that makes the audience wanna watch the whole thing.
It suffers from the Woke stronk womyn programming, but it is subtle enough which is worse because people consume it more readily and won't think about it.
The first episode wasn't too promising however and I almost dropped it right there. Black hero, white wife, makin a child... a bit too Woke. But at some point the wife calls their baby a "critter" and I'm not sure that it's a note that a fetus is not a human been (see: pro-choice), or their marriage is an act of bestiality. She meant in a kind, playful way, like a pet name, but it doesn't really sound like it. Whatever. From the second episode it actually becomes watchable.
The main problem is the resolution, it doesn't make sense. Spoilers incoming.
So the silo was made to keep people alive because the outside world is inhabitable. There is a camera above ground showing the barren wasteland. The authority keeps people in so they don't die outside. The hero gets some info that surface is habitable. So they throw her out, so she doesn't make others want to go out. When she go out, it turns out the surface is inhabitable, and that the evidence for the contrary was manufactured by the authority in the first place, and even the screen in the helmets shows manipulated imagery, because... they want them to clean the camera on the surface? But she figures out that the authority was right all along, and they would die out there. She isn't allowed to return to tell this to the people for some reason, even more the show tries to make us think that she won somehow by seeing through the trick that tricked her to go out when she is out... Wtf?
Then she walks away in the distance where she'll die inevitably when her O2 supply runs out.
Furthermore she is only able to walk away and not die right at the door of the silo, because she gets properly insulated suit and that she doesn't want to take off her helmet. But her walking away can make people believe that everything is all right on the surface, and make them want to go out... Again wtf?
The show was renewed for a second season, I have no idea what it could be about. It's kinda set up that she walks away she could make a living on the surface... which is silly as I wrote she's gonna die pretty soon.

It is an adaptation of a series of novels, I might get 'em, read some and see if it makes sense in the book.

Walking Deda spinoff. I'm in the 2nd episode.
It's Negan and Maggie. The best character they introduced during the last 5 seasons, and the 2nd most insufferable cunt of the show. Better than he last 3-5 seasons of Walking Deda. Not too woke.
I don't get some stuff, my memories are spotty from the last couple of seasons, since I just let them run in the background, paying little mind. But I kinda recall Negan getting a family of sort. What happened with them? I also don't remember Hershal, Maggie's kid (not her dad). Whatever.

This thing had 6 episodes in the season. Where those times disappeared when telly shows had 21-24 episodes per season? Oh well original Walking Deda started out with the same number.
Anyway it told a full story with an ending open for continuation (they make a 2nd season). It was okay. Killed off everyone except main chars basically, and introduced couple of new ones for next season. They gave some badass monologues to Negan which came out tired frankly and did not bite, they were more than the shadow of old, but not substantial enough.
So it was okay, since I feel cheated with the mere 6 episodes and wanted to see more.

There was one scene I really loved though. When Oppenheimer met with president Truman after the bombing of Japan. Oppenheimer says he feels he has blood on his hands, to which president went silent for a moment, took a handkerchief out of his pocket and waved it in fron of Oppenheimer's face. Then he said something like "You didn't drop the bomb. I did. Not everything is about you". Then when Oppenheimer was leaving, president said "Don't bring that crybaby here again".

So we watched Into the Wild, I think it deserves couple of words. Spoilers will be had in this post.
I think it's a movie that provokes reaction. There is a cult following of the whole phenomenon, not just the movie. These people are interested in the book, and the IRL person itself, and they cheer for him, they think he was a great dude and whatnot. The other side also goes beyond the movie, turns to the book, and observes the dude and they claim he was a moron. Was a moron partially because he was unprepared, and partially his political views and philosophy on life. This roots again in the American problems, and divide. The commie hippies and the free market preppers.
And there are those who are jelly of him, who see their own life suck and the lack of will to change that, and they see a satisfaction in his death, makes them feel inaction justified. He did something and see where that took him... It's not like life take us to death eventually... - but again he did not die on his own terms either.
So the movie provokes reaction, because it is mentioned and bunch of people go batshit crazy, doing extreme statements. Especially the haters.

Oh geez, this is going to be more than a couple of words.
So I think the movie is ok. It hops between timeline and it makes a bit harder to piece together some events, but it's not a great bother. I don't find the shots of nature satisfactory. There are no good views on the panorama. But still has some nice scenes.
The story, written by life and flashed out by the writer of the book and the creators of the movie, is good. Not the most exciting - no armwrestling with the bear - but it's a good drama. And probably this is the main selling point of the movie. Besides KStew looking cute.
The main hero is controversial ofc, as I wrote above, and empathizing with him for the viewer will depend on how acceptable he finds his opinions told during the movie. This will make it hard for some people to judge level headed.
All in all, it's a good movie I think, worth a watch.

Watched some episodes of Superjail. Didn't like it. Way too edgy and never rewards its audience for watching all of the action / being emotionally involved. Liek, everything feels so nihilistic and pointless in the show's universe.

Also the series ends with pretty much all of the secondary characters dying painful deaths. So if you liked any of the prisoners in that show in particular, ur fugged because they just died to death at the end. Only liek 5 characters in the show manage to survive it

Then watched Screwballs, a Canadian film about being hornt in High School. Played by actors in their mid to late 20s or 30s. Because some of the actors have beard stubble / dark beard shadows that is pretty noticeable even from afar.

Liked that movie a lot. Apart from the fuggings and hot grils in the movies, the 5 main characters raly give off a good performance. Unlike other movies, it really feels like all of the 5 main characters became best of friends throughout the movie. The chemistry is really good and every character brings their own unique personality and traits during the film.

They fight and argue sometimes during the film, but that always happens with frens so it ok.

Watched Average Joe.
It's a breddy good telly show. Kinda dark comedy, but also crime drama. It has quite a dark ending. I dunno if it's renewed for season 2. Generally all right acting and all right story, good atmosphere, I enjoyed it.
Ofc the woke has its finger all over. White cop drug addict, responsible of gf death, doing dirty cops things, butchering dead bodies like were nothing. Good cop is black woman, hard and just. Villain Russian mobster, abducting children, murdering wife. Badass white hitgirl, who murders but she's a caring mother and exploited by evil white man, and who sides with the heroes in the end. Black men are murderers like IRL, and there's a black drug dealer who is also a cop, so almost like a documentary in this question... I could write something about the black heroins (female heroes, not the heroin they try to sell), but am tired. Ah well, might as well. They are very brave, one is very resourceful and badass, the young one smart learns languages, the third is mama lion.
At least there are very few trannies (none) in this one.

I've seen this once, long long time ago. It's not an iconic movie and it ain't great. In fact some things are quite shitty, stupid, silly. What I noticed is how it plays on various fears. At least once each, but only once most.
Firstly there is the height. Lot of this is mountain climbing and stuff, hanging on cliffs as Bernd can guess. This features quite a lot.
But at one point it gets claustrophobic as they crawl in a cave. Then they are attacked by a swarm of bats (EEEEEEEEEE). And towards the end, Stallone gets under water, below ice! Heh.

Witcher is on again. Season 3. Still puzzles me how normies can follow this. Or if they can follow it at all. So many names are thrown around. And no substance to identify 'em. Like countries, states. Does Redania or Nilfgaard means anything to them? Can they put a "face" to these names? Or the various wizards?
Altough many played the Witcher games. But fans of the show aren't just these people. I know few here on the Hungary who watches it, endorses it, but read no books or played no games.
Still too much peeps of color in this considering. Or elves of color.

I don't mind the pajeeta as Yennefer. Except she should be pale. But the big problem is that she looks like a frightened lamb most of the time. I don't think she grabs Yennefer's essence.
As for Ciri I can say the same. As for looks fine, but looks out of place in that role. They should have picked someone with background in martial arts. She looks ridiculous with swords and shit.
As for Triss. She is so awful I won't even search for a photo.
And Dandelion, whom they never call Dandelion, he is just gay. Flamboyant gay. Sure he shouldn't be witcher type of manly, but he still is someone who can seduce any woman.
Somehow they took all the characters and they made lame imitations out of them.
Not to mention that Geralt should be the main hero, but everyone else is in the forefront. This should be an action fantasy with dramatic elements, instead they give us melodrama with couple of Geralt fighting scenes (the rest of the violence done doesn't worth a mention).

Finished with this thing above. They'll continue the show with different actor for Geralt in season 4.
This season was okay-ish. It was okay having it in the background half-paying attention. That pub battle at the end was cool, well choreographed. Ofc girl power yaddy yaddy yadda. Bad: not telling a coherent story, all the jumps between places as if they were a 5 minutes stroll away.
Meh. I might check the next season to see how new Geralt does.

I powered through all 7 episodes. A miniseries I would call it.
It's good.
The story offers surprises to the last episode. During episodes 4-5-6 the story itself (not the events) starts to get flat (it's just oh the airliner got hijacked), then at the end of episode 6 they manage to shake it up, and in ep. 7 they add more, and also start to give the explanations. Not too exciting but all right.
The events on screen are engaging, they keep the tension just enough.
It was also interesting to see how they solved the flight over Hungary. Hearing them speaking and the glimpses at the cast playing the Hungarian ground crew and others. I think for an Anglo product this part is as good as it gets.
Now as for the main hero, that he is a professional negotiator, it doesn't much comes into play. He mentions it, but how it is written and acted it's not convincing. It's not in the focus how he brilliantly manipulates with various negotiating tactics. He could very well have some other job or talent.
One word like hundred, it was worth a watch.

Watched Deep Impact. It's different what you'd think from the title.
It came out in 1998, the same year as Armageddon, and it's literally the same topic: a giant meteor speeding towards Earth and a group of astronauts goes up there to drill holes and nuke it, but have to make a sacrifice.
Armageddon takes a more... "Amerrrikaaa Fuck Yeah!" stance, while Deep Impact is more sombre, and I read it's more scientifically sound (as much as these things can be). Deep Impact also follows a journalist chiefly, while Armageddon concentrates wholly on the crew of the spaceship.

I liek the aesthetics of the actress playing Ginger so that's a plus, and the other is cute too. Well at least her human form. The other is too hairy and twisted.

The third one - Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning - really takes back to the beginning, to the early 1800s (~1820 perhaps), the frontiers.
It has elements from The Thing: they are trapped in an isolated place, people are paranoid about each other, they have test to tell who is a werewolf (done smartly, they do a test but reveal the purpose only later).
The story itself is kinda predictable.

Compared to this: >>51391 what a contrast.
It's a long movie, 2 and a half hours, still due to the quick cuts, the music, the short barked lines which often aren't a part of a coherent conversation, it feels like if this was a trailer of a movie.
It is often melodramatic. Liek when they think one of the ships is lost, and Arwen retires to a room to be alone with her sorrow a deep voice stating from the intercom that "Independence is flatlined" making the scene ridiculous.
Many relatively close up shots makes the screen cramped, and it feels as if they had cut parts of it from around. Makes me wish I could zoom out or somethin.

L'étudiante et Monsieur Henri (2015)

If 6/10 is for a film that you enjoy because you had nothing else to do, I would give it 6.5/10 maybe 7/10 if feeling very generous.

While it doesn't have top notch writing or anything that would make it a very rememberable, it certainly has its own charm. The character developments were nice though nothing unpredictable. There were no bad characters, they were all relatable and decent in their own way.

In the end she could not pass the music exam but that doesn't matter, she says she'll try again for the next year. Clearly the director doesn't want to finalize the film with a feel-good happy ending. Saying that she'll try for next year without an hesitation and inheriting the old man's piano indicates she'll chase her dreams which what matters, atleast according to the old mans letter as he says there are more important things than becoming sucessfull. It was the actual good ending that the film deserved.

Me watched Martian Land. Wikipedia says it's a mockbuster of The Martian. I don't think so: 1. the only common thing that both are set on Mars; 2. it's just flat, no comical or satirical elements.
Not much to tell, the acting ain't good, but not bad enough to make it a cult film. On one occasion the cgi is hilariously bad tho.
One of the main actresses is Hungarian-Vietnamese apparently.

Sometimes the message "keep fighting" is more inspirational than "job is well done". The dead finished their jobs, the living struggles on.

Watched Tyrict yesterday. Made by Wagner just like Best in Hell. It is more story driven than the letter, but similarly action focused. I couldn't watch it in one sitting, in fact only in several, so I might do it again (unlikely).
Since I don't know the exact situation in the Central African Republic I could treat the story as entirely fictional. Obvious political message was only at the penultimate scene, about how Russia made it possible for CAR to have a legitimate election and whatnot. Albeit just before it seemed they depicted an instance of corruption in Russia. Anyway, up to that point the movie is devoid from this stuff, and mostly enjoyable.
The acting ain't good, but the choreography of the action scenes are swell. There are some injuries depicted and whatnot that - while might be amateurish in their depiction - seem realistic. The film also features the usual camaraderie themes can be found in war movies.
What bothered me is the shaky camera, which is plausible and a legit choice for such a movie, but while reading the not so well translated subtitles, it was distracting.
There is a main character but there are so many things going on, comparatively short screentime is spent on him, so empathizing with him, or understanding his actions is not easy. I think he serves more like an entry point for the story and an introduction to the unit and how things are going there.
The negress is kinda cute so that's plus.

They made a new telly show out of James Clavell's Shogun. It's different than the 1980 miniseries. Less Anjin centered, and Blackthorn is less of an active participant, more of a bumbling sufferer of the events. There is some stronk woman moments but not bothersome.

Yeah the novel is a novel, albeit a historical one, with real historical background (the end of the sengoku period), and with real historical figures with their names twisted a bit (Tokugawa -> Toranaga). Even the English pilot was a living person.
The historical setting, the customs and costumes, the buildings and whatnot feels believable. I can't really go into splitting hairs that "they didn't wear those swords with those dresses" or whatnot.

Just finished watching the entire Yu-Yu Hakusho series. Being srs when I say it's probably one of the best anime shows to watch. All the characters are flawed but likeable. All of the major story arcs are compelling and engrossing. Animation for everything looks great for a series that's liek 30 years old.

And the series finale was really good too. Highly recommend it bernds.

Watched one and a half episodes. It's silly and they should have not made it. Perhaps it will become entertaining. Perhaps it won't. For now I'll watch it for curiosity's sake.
In general I can't say much positive about it, it's flat. I laffed at:
>Vault-Tec Plan D
poison on a table a family's corpses sat around
That shit was funny.
Cute dawg.
That's about it.
I have not found anything too annoying either. What I can mention is the vault's population is about 20. In the games they had that many dwellers for the games/engines limitations. If they put the hundreds of people that should occupy a vault, that shit have lagged like hell. Same with TES games. Some of these vaults should support couple thousand people. In the games these handful of people look ridiculous, but we give them a pass because we know they just represent a population of unnamed NPCs, which would be annoying to have anyway for they couldn't say anything and wouldn't have any meaningful role. In the telly show, it looks ridiculous same, but hard to forgive this.
