I recently rewatched midsommar and I’ve decided it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen

No. 139496

This pic is so cozy!


NTA but I’d say I’m kinda meh on Midsommar. I liked Hereditary a lot, but “spooky pagan cult” movies are kinda boring imo. A bunch of Swedes living in the forest is about the least scary thing I can imagine. I also thought the characters were pretty forgettable besides rooting for the lead to drop her scrote.

Lol I deleted because I made a dumb typo but you replied before I could fix and repost. Yeah, I didn't find it particularly scary but I did find it entertaining. I really liked the main character and was rooting for her too. Hereditary is much more disturbing. That entire car sequence is something else. The long shot on his face- amazing.

No. 139499

>It's the scariest part in the movie and literally made me nauseous.
Agreed and the crazy thing is that it's not even really a horror story element. It's just a tragic freak accident, not exactly realistic but certainly not supernatural or unbelievable. And it's still the most viscerally horrifying, shocking part of the movie, specifically because of how possible it is.

No. 139522

For me car sequence was also one of the scariest things especially because the way the movie is built I think you can very vividly feel something bad is about to happen long before car scene even, so when they're already in the car and things are in motion there's just so much tension and this terrifying suspense, I legit had to look away. In general tension buildup is excellent throughout the entire movie.

On the same topic, does anyone knows some good "day time horror" ? I'm a huge fan of Midsommar and The Wicker Man but I don't really know anything close to it. A lot of movies rely on the dark and the night to make you feel scared and I think it's bold for a movie to go in the opposite direction.

No. 139607

I posted this in the last thread
I was really surprised watching the Silence of the Lambs, it was pink-pilled AF, the real villain in the film was the Male Gaze and buffalo bill was the ultimate embodiment of that gaze
In the near end scene where Clarice has him cornered, he cuts the power and the lights go off, Clarice is effectively blind while bill with the aid of night vision goggles has all the power as he can see her every movement, he see's her fear and he revels in it, bill becomes the personification of the male gaze in flesh, he toys with her and he takes his big very phalic gun and aims it at her hear head but the loud sound of when he COCK's his gun alerts Clarice and due to having sharper shooting experience catches him off guard, and unloads on him and her stray bullets damaging the walls and windows which let's the light shine in, and we see Bill as he lay dying, his appearance and even the sound he's making not resembling a man but rather an insect like creature

I so wanted to love "Promising Young Woman" (2020) and I largely liked it but the way they styled Carrie Mulligan was criminally bad. They kept putting her in these ingenue outfits that age her terribly. Picrel is one of the nicer ones tbh, she looked rough the entire film. Just because she has petite features does not mean you can put her in clothes like that. They did her dirty. Looking up her age will convince you to wear sunscreen and that's all I will say about an otherwise awesome actor

Also what the fuck as that runtime? Every scene is gruelingly long, for no apparent reason. The climax deserves to be dragged out and long, I totally vibe with that, but it felt extra long because the rest of the film also had shots that lingered so it had no temporal emphasis for me. Edit your films down man!

got around to watching Ride or Die, and while I wish it was as dark as the original manga, which I've been reading, I enjoyed it for what it was. I'm kind of afraid I'll be labeled scrotey for liking it because I've seen people criticize aspects of the movie and its treatment of sexuality, but I enjoyed it as a bi woman

I saw this for the first time recently and I don't understand why it's so highly praised. I thought it was unintentionally hilarious at best and bafflingly weird at worst. Precisely none of it was scary. The only disturbing part was the sex scene and even that was cringy and uncomfortable. The directors cut also lasted for forever. I liked the main character and the visuals a lot but that's about it. I liked most of Hereditary a lot (it really dropped the ball at the climax) so I had high expectations, I'm dissapointed Midsommar was what it was. What a waste of great art direction.

Loved Portrait of a Lady On Fire, Black Narcissus, Alien, Wolfwalkers, Million Dollar Baby (more men than I'd prefer in this, but it at least passed the Bechdel test). Don't really care about genre so long as women are accomplishing stuff and the crux of the plot isn't their endless suffering.

No. 142846

Always recommending Heavenly Creatures, as well as Cracks (and maybe Respire if you would like something similar, though I haven't seen that one)… but there is pain and sadness in those. Not as a main component - definitely not as torture porn - but still. So decide for yourself.
Oh and Pin Cushion is a wonderful, but heartbreaking modern fairytale. AFAIR almost all meaningful characters are female (there is maybe a one token boytoy, but he's not very memorable). It's fucking sad tho, especially if you've dealt with bullying, poverty or alienation from others. I loved it a lot, so I mention this movie in case some other anon becomes interested.
Sorry if my post wasn't much help, I mostly watch sad movies. The one fun film with strong female leads that I remember is Kamikaze Girls. It's very campy tho.

Thanks anon, I'll check all of these out! Pin Cushion sounds a bit like Pan's Labyrinth in that it's about the characters developing a fantasy world to escape the pain of reality. I've seen Kamikaze Girls before but it's been years so I'm glad you reminded me of it. Would probably be liking watching it for the first time again now. I don't mind the occasional sad movie but sometimes it can feel like women-centric films just focus on how much shit we have to deal with minus any subsequent relief or triumph, which can get exhausting. I see enough of that in the real world. But I'd still rather watch movies that show women facing difficult things than anything that further glorifies men.

No. 142929

BTTF1 was my favorite movie when I was around nine or ten. There are obviously cringey things about it, but the special effects are good for the time and the score is awesome. Also Michael J Fox was actually kind of cute when he was young (imo at least.)

It is not moidshit, and if you dislike it, you're actually in the minority because most normies are at least amicable towards it. Stop acting like every other woman on Earth has the exact same opinions as you, Narcissist-chan.

That said, The Secret to my Success is awful, and Ferris Bueller is hard to watch because Ferris is legitimately a horrible human being and I hate that we're supposed to root for him.

Well, I think Lorraine misidentified her affection for Marty as romantic. I think even across timelines, family members would feel connections to each other, and she felt naturally caring towards him for that reason. Also, she didn't fall in love with George because she took care of him necessarily, I think that was just an opportunity for them to get to know each other and realize they were compatible. Also, did everybody just collectively forget about the scene where she kisses Marty and immediately gets grossed out?

Also, Back to the Future benefitted from the fact that people before the internet didn't over-analyze the hell out of things and were more willing to suspend their disbelief. Doc Brown is basically the same age visually despite like thirty years passing, and they literally never explain how Doc and Marty met, but none of that matters because it isn't what the movie is about.

I watched bladerunner2049, it wasn't honestly as good as I expected it to be for such a long and high rates movie, but nevertheless I still loved the way the world looked like, and basically everything up until MC meets a supposed "father", but it's still not a movie to throw 10/10 at.

It definitely holds up. It’s not like Spacey directed or wrote the thing. In any case he’s a creep in the film and thus was perfect for the role.

OMG thank you for being so caring, anon. I was late and didn't catch the first 5 or 10 minutes. IDK if that helped (maybe there was something infuriating in them?), but I ended up liking the movie. Shocking, as I usually hate any road trip movies and I expected Nomadland to be peak schmaltzy, emotionally manipulative cinema. The movie didn't feel sappy or like poverty porn to me. It was nice seeing a story about alienated elders with actors that actually looked the part. Some scenes made me cry a bit, but in a healthy way that made me feel more connected to myself and to humanity at large. Also, I got a healthy kek out of realization that Nomadland has just introduced local normies to two great American concepts:
>roadside attractions in the form of trashy lifesize dinosaurs in the middle of bumfack nowhere
>Derek Humphry's Final Exit JFC, it was NOT written by Dr Kevorkian as the movie claims! What a complete fact-checking fail
I would cautiously suggest giving the movie a chance in case of boredom or if anything about it seems appealing.

This is not true lmao did no one here watch it even for morbid curiosity??? She doesn't want to kill any dogs in it or even hate dogs, they actually even gave her a dog companion, she just hates the lady who killed her mother and wants to take revenge on her.
That scene is pretty awful tbh but the whole film gives you the impression that it's purposefuly Camp.

Honestly, the movie was average-ish but the fashion is pretty on point, I don't get why everyone is just so against the idea of Cruella getting a redemption arc, like killing dogs is not even close to the worst thing a Disney villain has ever done??

There is something about this movie that I love so much. I have never seen a single Ryan Gosling other than this movie and I have watched it about 7-8 times.

Pirates of the Caribbean movies. They were insanely popular when the first 3 movies were airing, but then there was sort of a cultural wiplash, and I even heard people dragging the first movie for being too silly and campy, but why does everything need to be gritty and adult.

These are embarassing now!? That sucks. In any case, it's the same for me anon. I literally saw the first PotC in theaters 7 times. I was absolutely gaga over Johnny Depp, plus I loved pirates and it was awesome getting to see a big budget movie about them. I agree that not everything needs to be serious and gritty, and at least it had a moderately creative plot and characters rather than all this tired capeshit coming out lately. It's too bad about Johnny's personal life, he really did used to be a talented actor and a babe but he's taken a nosedive since. I love a lot of straightforward adventure films from back in the day like the Count of Monte Cristo, Man in the Iron Mask, all the Indiana Jones movies. They weren't brilliant but they were genuine and fun in a way most blockbusters these days refuse to be. Always have to be ironic and make fun of themselves, as if being embarassed of their own campiness will head off audiences doing it. In the end they just come across more monotonous and lack heart.

I loved it as a child and recently rewatched it on tv, and honestly I don't think it looks that bad. I really like the cast, characters and overall atmosphere. The characters are not that complicated though, more like in fairy tales, but I don't mind it. My favorite ones were Merlin and Mordred. Mordred is freaking sexy.

I watched The Craft Legacy today and lemme tell you what a waste of time.

Nothing happens for most of the time and the conflict between the girls at the very end feels so forced. Also the way they talk to each other, feels like the writer got all the dialogue from tumblr.

The girls ignore the protagonist, who is nancy's daughter because suposedly she caused the death of a kid and one of the girls talk about "using powers responsibly" like shut the fuck up, you cast a spell on the guy to change his personality completely, the fuck responsibly means.

I would just like to express how much I love the art direction of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. It's so nostalgic for me, very experimental and bold colors throughout the film. The movies themselves are extremely campy, and I love them for that as well. We do not forget Seal's iconic Kiss From A Rose.
Batman 1989 and Batman Returns are also fantastic, but not as memorable. Prince's contributing part of the soundtrack stood out more, including the photo set of him dressed up as half Joker, half Batman.

Disney has lost its touch, they haven't made a good animated movie since Coco–and if you needed a reminder, that came out in 2017. Even their live actions have not been good at all, but at least those for the most part have been understood to be money grabs baiting people in with nostalgia.

Toy Story 4 was just OK and only because I cared about Bo Peep. Frozen II was contrived and really not great. Ralph Breaks the Internet was bad. Soul was weird. The Incredibles 2 was lame. Onward was OK.
Just watched Raya and it's a stupid, poorly paced mess with a poor message. The dragon looks like a kin of Elsa and so many characters are thrown in that one can't care about any of them.

I had a lot of fun watching The Favourite recently and want to watch more period dramas set in Europe around the years 1700 to 1900. I’ve already seen a couple. Shows like The Great and Harlots, movies like Emma and Pride & Prejudice. Thanks in advance for any suggestions that come my way!

No. 147651


I really liked Portrait of a lady on fire,(though I might be biased bc if a film has lesbians in it I almost always enjoy it more), it's set on some remote island during the 1800s and is mostly a love story. I remember liking Mary Antoinette with kirsten dunst (granted I was high while watching it) but its kind of quirky and has got a lot of anachronistic details (like, converse with ball gowns levels of anachronism lol) so if strict historical realism is your thing this might be a skip. I also think I enjoyed the Duchess back when I saw it as a teenager but all I really remember was Keira Knightley looking pretty in the costumes.

Other than those and the ones you already mentioned like pride and prejudice and emma, I'm not sure I've seen any other good movies set in England during that time period. For some reason Titanic came to mind before anything else (even though that's technically after 1900) since the style and general vibe still seems very Victorian England, but everyone's seen Titanic so it's not a very good suggestion lol.

But if you're open to ones set in asia there's a great Korean period drama called the Handmaiden that I highly recommend. Just be forewarned that it's very gay and very R rated.

>the Duchess
Just a head's up, "Keira Knightley looking pretty" is about the entirety of this movie. It's frustrating because the real woman it was based on (Georgiana Cavendish) was a badass who was a style icon, socialite, supporter of science and literature, big political activist and poet/writer. There was a great amount of raw material to work with but the movie spends about 2 minutes on her meaningful accomplishments then shunts it away in favor of focusing on a hurried romantic affair, love triangle and having her make stupid, overly emotional choices regarding her kids which is out of character after how much she's shown to care for them. Her gross rapist husband is shown to have more development and emotional growth by the end. Focusing too much on "romance" isn't really out of character for period dramas, but again, choosing such a cool woman and then portraying her in a shallow, dismissive way is really unfortunate. It is nice to look at, so if you want something banal but attractive go for it, but wanted to warn anons. I agree Portrait of a Lady and Handmaiden are both great though.

The 2005 BBC adaptation of Bleak House with Gillian Anderson is good, and if you want something fun but not too serious there's From Hell. It's about Jack the Ripper and features Johnny back when he was still hot and doing interesting roles.

Barry Lyndon is totally worth a watch too. It's considered to have some of the most gorgeous cinematography using natural lighting and was shot to look like paintings.

What do we think of Bo Burnham's new special? To me vidrel was the highlight and the rest was way too low energy and "uwu raw edgy honest picture of depression" which is so oversaturated in media the past few years.

The "white woman's instagram" song was also super cringy, really pointless and made it clear he hasn't been on instagram since like 2014…

I get he's big enough that anything he puts out will be moderately successful, but honestly this should've been shelved. It was a mess. I just sat through 80% of it thinking "Man just get the fuck off Twitter and go to therapy, let's see you TRY to heal and put in the work to be a functional human, instead of watching you spiraling in this self-indulgent self-destructive career you could walk away from at any time"

I enjoyed the special but it was the only one of his that I've seen, so yeah. How does it compare? Also I felt kind of uncomfortable because all the time I had this thought 'this is what onision thinks he is doing', but that's not Bo's fault lmfao.

Idk if he's gotten more good-boy-woke or if I'm just noticing it now but yeesh, it was weird how much he mentioned being white as like a shorthand for being problematic was weird. I thought the sockpuppet song was going somewhere based about wokescolds, but it kind of fizzled into nothing.

>Didn't he imply going to therapy for 5 years?

I'd have to rewatch to make sure, but my impression was he was "working on himself" after he quit stage performing… I don't remember him mentioning therapy or meds specifically, and he definitely wasn't getting help during the filming of the special. You can just see the depressive hermit aura building throughout.


>he looks great

It was really uncomfortable to watch in various places, and I wasn't always sure how intentional it was. There also were quite a few times when I wondered how authentic it was, but I guess that's the point or something.

White Womans Instagram was so misogynistic it made me wanna throw up.

lol he looks like an old exboyfriend of mine when hes all underweight depressed and shaggy looking. It was weird and freaky how similar they look.

Lol come on, that's a bit much. I truly believe you're missing the intended joke. The entire special is mocking certain social media trends, and White Woman's Instagram is just poking fun at the extremely common phenomenon of 'comfy' Instagram pages filled with 'trendy' content, usually curated by a white woman. I didn't interpret it as misogynistic at all; it's the only song from the special with entirely wholesome humour to it, and with a section that's clearly intended to be played straight for emotion (the ode to her mom, which has no joking lyrics picrel), left me with the impression of it being a light-hearted jab at the more basic(and sometimes personal) side of social media.

>>148232 is right. I think any of you here who are genuinely offended by a song joking that women like avocados, latte art and romance are being overly-sensitive, or are insecure about liking those things in the first place.

No. 148351

eh yeah I agree that it's intended to be lighthearted, I saw some analysis on tiktok attempting to explain how the part of her mom shows something about depth or something idk. but it annoys me that brainlet tier scrotes just like the song because hating white women has become a proxy for general misogyny. saying you hate women makes you a misogynist but saying you hate white women makes you woke. I don't think the song is deep enough to be upset about but there's something to be discussed (not here) about how white women are increasingly being used as the dumping ground for misogynistic sentiment.

My thoughts exactly. I think the song was a confused mess. If it was meant to be heartfelt in the end, it either should have ended on the mom part or the final chorus should be changed to something positive and not mocking. Otherwise, it really was not clear what the fuck Bo's angle was. The problem didn't really exist in other segments of Inside. I get the song MAYBE was intended to be an affectionate parody, but because a man is singing it and singling out women for being white, it feels more like a typical scrote attack.

I'm confused…was the witch young and old? If she was old that man couldn't have been her father, unless he was supernatural too. She was powerful enough to summon demons so why couldn't she stop the mc from beating her to death?

No. 148678

This character was allegedly based on a cousin of Gogol's grandmother that was believed to be a witch. She lived somewhere near Kyiv and there was a legend that old witches could turn into young girls. I suspect it must be common because something like that was also in Grimms' fairy tales? So, Gogol's relative was suspected to transform into a young girl too.
I believe there's a theory that pannochka is old and her father might be a warlock and is even older but makes himself look younger. It's also possible that he knew that Khoma was her murderer and he planned all that to get him killed.
I think her not being able to stop him has to do with his praying. In the church, he manages to protect himself, so I guess there must be a way to defeat evil forces.

Cool World - just seemed pretty stupid and lazy to me. I mean it's lazily made, some animations are obviously copied and repeated and it's not even subtle. The plot and characters are also shit, the sex scene is hilarious - I guess it'd be more complicated to make that cartoonist touching Holli and so on, but he just lies there like a log lol.

While I was typing it, I remembered probably the worst (in terms of plot) film I saw, in the last few years at least - Anomalisa. It's a prententious and incredibly boring stop-motion film about yet another uninspiring white middle-aged man who is bored with his life and thinks that everyone's the same. If I'm not mistaken it's suggested that he might have this mental illness when you think that everyone's just the same person pretending to be someone else. Yet it looks like he's just a contemptuous dick who expects others to surprise him or something. And then this ridiculous scene… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSh-Wy2vvHY&ab_channel=Movieclips So he thinks he's the first person who realized all this shit and everyone else's just dumb and never thought about government manipulations or something like that? Who wrote this? It's so bad

Flesh+Blood by Paul Verhoeven. Medieval times. Main character played by Rutger Hauer and his gang kidnap the young girl Agnes. At the beginning of a movie she doesn't even know what sex is so she asks her maid to show her, and the latter immediately starts fucking some random man lol just like that, Agnes doesn't like it though. So when she gets kidnapped, Rutger and his friends sexually assault her, but she rises to the occasion by wrapping her legs around him and forcing him into herself. Friends are like "wooow now sheee's raping you!!", and she's all smug - lol what the fuck? and then they're in love or some shit, anyway she doesn't mind him at all

I've been watching the currently airing Korean soap opera Mine and I'm completely blown away by it. On surface it's your typical drama about a dysfunctional rich family fighting for inheritance and all the scandals that come with that. What really shines about it is that the most important characters are well written, complex women who have deep relationships with each other. And even more impressive is that one of the two mains is a powerful woman who happens to be a closeted lesbian. She mentions it explicitly several times and even meets her old lover on screen. She's portrayed very respectfully in general. This is huge for a South Korean drama! Heck for any show, cause I can't think of any western one that did something similar.

Well, I finished it and honestly I expected something more nuanced. Ezra was indeed hamming it up and was just generally too much. Tilda Swinton was great, John C. Reilly was good, although sort of an odd choice (but then again, comedy actors do the occasional movie roles like these to prove that they should be taken seriously). My biggest qualm was the black and white characterization. Even Ted Bundy had days where he was nice to people and believably acted like a normal human being, but I'm supposed to believe that this kid was an insufferable bitch from the moment he was born consistently until his imprisonment? Also I got the feeling the director sometimes leaned on the shock value so much I couldn't take it seriously and it bordered on comedy (like the scene where Eva walks in on Kevin masturbating and he, instead of stopping, just continues jerking off while staring into her eyes. I knew it was supposed to be disturbing, but I couldn't help but laugh). The question of nature vs nurture is an interesting one but could have been tackled better I think
I love Stoker!! It's one of my guilty pleasure movies, the cinematography is mesmerizing and I love the atmosphere and the camerawork. Dreamy

I was kinda into while watching it but retrospectively, I think it was pretty bad. The first half was solid with the stand-up show and opera bits but it got worse and more cliche as it went on.
The singing during sex sequence made me cringe so hard. Adam Driver's face expressions, moustache and constant nakedness also made me cringe (but I guess nice to have a movie than objectified its male lead more than its female lead). I've heard people praise his acting in this but he was over-acting imo.
The fate of female lead was also cliche as fuck. The final plot twist was a bit too 5deep8me.

Yup, saw it during the world premiere. How did you see it? I think Driver was as great as always in it and genuinely fucking terrifying. I will leave it at that though since you don't agree and we have an appropriate thread for admiring him. I think it was a good movie, but for me like 7/10 good. I think it's great that someone made something so original and could see why some people adore it.
What do you think about Ann using Annette? I got the part where she cursed her with her voice as vengeance toward her murdering hubby, but we see Annette as a doll from the very moment she's born… so it means that Ann immediately saw Annette as a tool. For what though? I don't know if I'm dumb and it's self-explanatory, or if it's a plot hole Also Adam's character made me think of Onision, especially with how everyone went along with his 'controversial', 'daring' jokes and ended up disgusted yet shocked when it turned out he's like that for real

The movie is from Adam's point of view so I think it meant that he saw Anette as a doll since she was born. Not Ann. Ann was the typical perfect etheric love interest that's of course killed by the dark brooding protagonist that's the opposite of her.
I also believe she didn't literally curse her child, it was all just his guilt that manifested into hallucinations and Anette was simply a gifted child.
I saw it in a small/indie cinema, they've opened here recently. The ratings and reception of this movie in my country (mid euro) are pretty bad…Guess we're too cynical for this kind of stuff.
The first half was creative and songs were overall catchy though imo.

thank you anon this looks great!

No. 152051

Oh, good to hear that it's opened somewhere already!
Hm, you are probably right about the movie being entirely from Adam's POV. But in the ending scenes, the real Annette rejects her mother for also using her as a pawn, so IDK what to make of that
I feel like this movie leaves some room for interpretation, though I'm not sure if I'm invested enough for that now. Maybe it will be clearer once I rewatch. This movie is so extra I can both believe in a realistic and a 'fantasy' interpretation of it. It has a feeling of a dark fairytale to me. Honestly, I did not know what to expect from Annette from the trailer and I went with an open mind… but I still ended up being completely unprepared for the actual experience.

nta also i haven’t read the manga but this is my opinion:
3/5 stars
- was a bit too long. could have done with some editing
- too much melodrama
- boring but had the potential to be good
- there were a few poignant scenes that i’m grateful for
- did not like that the main character who is supposed to be a lesbian fucks two men (there were ~plot~ reasons but at this point idc. i’ve never seen a movie where a straight man has to fuck a man for plot reasons and until that becomes a common occurrence i will keep complaining about lesbian characters getting this treatment
- when the two women have sex the lesbian bemoans not having a penis. just seemed like typical scrote writing

No. 152119

the lesbian fucking man and bemoaning lack of penis were present in the manga which was written by a woman. not that your complaint isn't valid, just felt like mentioning this. TBH I'm not sure if the more dominant heroine is a lesbian or not, her underling seemed like it much more. I need to reread the manga, it kind of exhausted me when extra characters showed up

I saw this last night and I loved it, instant favourite. I love movies with religious themes. yeah there is a rape scene but it's in no way graphic, basically what happens is the character is having sex with someone, she says no at one point and he basically ignores her and she just looks defeated for a few seconds, could still be upsetting though but it lasts all of 5 seconds. also the movie was filmed really close to where I live which I found interesting! the setting of this run down old seaside town and themes of isolation hit really close to home, I couldn't stop thinking about it once it was over. I recommend it anon!

It's interesting how people seem to have very different reactions to this movie in terms of how it affected them. A lot of people agree that it had its scary parts, but some were extremely affected emotionally while others just didn't see what the fuss was about. It's kinda cool.

I'm one of those who had a strong reaction to the movie. My family went through a bad crisis when I was a child, and while other movies portray family tragedy as just being sad and rainy, Hereditary was the closest any movie has ever gotten to portray just the horror of watching your family fall apart at the seams. The loss of control, your loved ones just not being themselves anymore, this movie portrayed those feelings perfectly to me.

No. 153822

Anon, I have written something similar here or in another thread and someone suspected I was a secret advertiser going through forums to shill the movie, kek. When in reality I had the same issue as you, that film really triggered my anxiety and depression and I felt absolutely devastated. It is insane that a film can do this to you. I always told myself "It is just a movie, it can’t harm you" over and over because I was so scared. Another fun fact: I went to the cinema thinking it was a "dark family drama" because that is what my friend told me, but I was in no way prepared for it. Recently my bf rewatched the movie and it was weird to sit in the other room, knowing what was happening on screen in the same moment.

I agree that the movie was able to portray very dark feelings that I haven’t seen on screen before. It was both the horror scenes and the general psychological horror and feeling of dread that disturbed me. I think the only other film that came close to this was the original Martyrs.

No. 153861

Can I ask what parts of it made you feel that way? Which part of the spiraling felt most accurate to a real life portrayal of those emotions? Which event seemed most reflective of real emotions? Was it when the grandmother died? when her body was found? When the mom found out? When the son kind of descended into madness? When the mother finally let out her rage? When the son accepted his position as the harborer of evil/tragedy after his sister’s death? As someone who found the movie over the top and comical, I also think it’s interesting others could find the movie discomforting for being too relatable. The movie is definitely stronger imo when it’s all viewed as a metaphor, but the literal things that happen in it are still funny.

No. 153880

>over the top and comical
kek anon, you are a badass (seriously, I wish I was as brave as you). I think it was just the general tone and atmosphere of the movie that upset me, especially the car scene and the way everything went downhill from there. It was like a switch was flipped and the characters "fell into a deep hole" afterwards, spiralling into darkness and madness. To me, this is exactly how anxiety and depression feel like. And I don’t like it very much. There was just a lot of darkness and dread in me after watching the movie. It was like one of those nightmares where your family suddenly doesn’t recognize you anymore or something is wrong with them but you can’t tell what exactly it is.

Some scenes that upset me were the daughter sleeping in the red room, the dream sequence where the mother talks to her son and everything seems alright before she slits her throat or something (I instantly closed my eyes lol) and the finale in general with the mother banging her head against the door in particular, NO THANK YOU)

late reply, but the way i understand the white woman's instagram song was that we should not be judging those women. yes at first it seems like he is making fun of them, but in the end i think he was critising people who judge them more. i think that was the point of the part with the dead family member, after that part, the first part feels more like an endearing tribute. he is saying that those women who are made fun of for their instagram are still people with depth and what you see on their instagrams is just the surface, it's just a way to have fun and do a kind of virtual scrapbook, and they don't have to explain themselves or show anything more than they want to, just because some idiots decide to judge them based on an actually innocent, harmless social media appearance

While I think White Woman's Instagram was a bit misogynistic, I'm still in absolute awe at the cinematography of all of it. To think he put together all those shots by himself, it must have took a lot of work and effort. Welcome to the Internet was also my favorite song.

Very well said anon. I wish more people would see White Woman's Instagram beyond the surface-level jabs.

Movies like this frustrate me and I don’t know how to feel.
Like cinematically it was really well made, really subtle and slow moving and not as hammy as I expected, but I don’t want to feel sympathetic about Jeffrey Dahmer, he was a kiddy raping degenerate. But of course I’m going to feel awful watching cute Ross Lynch crying on the floor.
I just spent 2 hours feeling sad and maternal toward cutesy teen-movie Dahmer which is more genuine emotion I’ve had for any individual victim of his (because nobody is actually interested in who they were even today and there won’t be any sadboi movies made about them) and I get frustrated with myself and have to remind myself that he fucked a kid and injected his fucking brain with acid while he was still alive.

Also that part at the end where he’s attempting to kill his friend / the author smells like absolute bullshit to me, but I didn’t read the comic

Anyway Bundy / Columbine hybristos are common as dirt moid-loving dipshits but I can’t wrap my mind around Dahmer fangirls. Sense of safety because he posed no danger to females whatsoever?

Yeah, this tendency to humanize or glamorize serial killers is really frustrating especially since it doesn't even question the narrative that serial killers tell in interviews - which is of course, that they are victims themselves, either of their surroundings or their impulses and they had no choice but to kill. Films like this also presuppose that serial killers are just like ordinary humans other than the killing part and are capable of feeling the same range of emotions as everyone else. Which as far as I know is bullshit.
I watched an interview once with a psychiatrist who explained that people's predisposition to fearlessness and stress moves on a spectrum. On one end of the spectrum, it makes people very sensitive and so they get stressed out very easily. On the other end of the spectrum there are the people who need an above the average amount of stimulation to feel stressed and these people either turn this fearlessness into a socially accepted thing - like choosing professions where this is useful, like surgeons, pilots, bomb disposal technicians, etc. - or they turn it into a socially unacceptable thing - like killing. So essentially, serial killers are people who are so dead inside and predisposed to boredom that they need extreme acts to feel the same amount of stress or arousal that an ordinary people would when they are for example giving a presentation in front of a large crowd or are about to have sex with an attractive person. They are literally empty inside and of course they would say things like 'Oh I only killed that person because I felt emotionally close to them and didn't want them to leave' to make themselves seem more interesting. The truth is they were just bored and wanted to feel something

Exactly. I feel emotionally manipulated in a way, even though I know I wasn’t forced to watch this movie or anything. Like I was watching just one small part of a concentrated cultural effort to desensitize women to terrifying, murderous male behavior using our tendency to sympathize and feel a sense of protectiveness regarding wounded people.
It’s like my heart wants to disassociate so I can baby this “character” and my brain has to slap the stupid out of me. I have no hybristo tendencies whatsoever, but I’m alarmed at how easily I could be coaxed into them by morbid fascination and movies like this.

> Dahmer then placed his head on his would-be victim's chest, listened to his heartbeat, and said that he would eat his heart

I enjoyed this movie because visually it was well done and the acting was surprisingly good. I didn't have any expectations from this movie so I enjoyed the ride. But I have to agree that movies like these tend to make us empathize with monsters doing grave injustice to their victims.
And I will also add that being the awkward kid at school, it made it even harder for me not to relate on some level with the main character especially since the movie is about him becoming a murderer and it barely touches on the gruesome things he did later in life.

I enjoyed it a lot and loved escaping into the slow, dreamy, psychological narrative it spun. Would be overjoyed to see more intelligent fantasy movies like this, but I did find it pathetic/hilarious that this dumbass literally needed his (ending spoilers) mommy to create an entire fake quest to prove himself and still managed to fail the challenges miserably at every turn until the very end, during which his "success" was accepting death but still getting off scot-free. Like damn, dude was dense. He wanted to be a knight but still managed to bungle simple acts of courtesy that badly? I liked Alicia Vikander's roles though and Arthur was cool.

>House Party (1990)

I actually liked this. Not much to say other than it was nice

>Free guy

I really hate this. My 12-year-old nephew made me and my family watched this because 'haha GTA but in real life'. It's inoffensively mediocre at best and extremely cringy and predictable at worst. I also felt like near the end they were just cramming in as many references as possible.

I saw this recently and it was excellent - really probably one of my favorite movies to come out in the last few years, and 2019 was stacked so all I’m saying is nonnies go see this, if not for the plot then for the set design and costuming. Dev Patel, Alicia Vilander and whoever plays Arthur are amazing as well. I particularly loved how Arthur was portrayed.
David Lowery I’ve noticed tends to put a scene in all of his movies where a character spells out the main theme and it worked so much better in this setting and delivered by Alicia Vikander the GOAT than it did in a Ghost Story, for instance, where I think it’s probably the biggest weak point of the film. The “green” monologue kinda hit here ngl
Seeing movies like this make me want to get into symbology and the like. Obviously a lot was ripped directly from the source but even as someone who has read Arthurian myths (not this one… yet) and gets Gawain’s backstory, it was so dense. Highly recommended

In anticipation of Robert Eggers' version of Nosferatu, I watched most of the Draculas and I found it interesting how the actors and the directors emphasized different aspects of the character and all of the movies had a different feel to them. A comparison that no one asked for:

Dracula (1931) - slick, creepy, atmospheric. Everything from the way he talks to the way he moves, watching Béla Lugosi's Dracula felt like watching an animal or a monster roleplaying as a human, with an intentional uncanny valley effect. He was creepy but mysteriously attractive at the same time. My favorite. The version that I watched had no soundtrack and the total silence added an extra layer of creepiness.

Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)- slow, beautiful, melancholic. This Dracula is sorrowful, tragic monster who only longs for the things he cannot have - love and death. There was no intention here to create a sex symbol who preys on women. He felt more like a terribly lonely outcast with a deformity who wants to fit in society but cannot. He hates what he is and envious of humans. You can't help but feel sorry for him. Interesting take on the tale, loved it.

Horror of Dracula (1958) - bipolar Dracula. Cool, calm and collected one minute, violent and foaming at the mouth next. This was my least favorite but I couldn't even put my finger on why (maybe I was just burned out from all the Draculas lmao). It's very straightforward horror I guess, bright colored artificial blood, terrified screams, the music going DUN-DUN-DUUUUN and Christopher Lee looking tall and menacing as fuck. Undeniably cool ending scene. The visuals were pretty but the soundtrack was wayyy too dramatic. This had the best Van Helsing though - usually he's portrayed either as overly logical and cold or eccentric but here he was contained but really likeable (the way he put his coat over the little girl was adorable), Peter Cushing was excellent.

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) - lavish, sensual, soap-opera Dracula. Everything from the soundtrack to the costumes is grandiose and in your face. Dracula's a sexy, well-dressed gentleman who just wants to hold the love of his life in his arms. God I feel ridiculous writing this down kek. Melodrama, sex, blood, gorgeous scenery, gorgeous clothes, a big focus on romance, not much focus on horror. Sort of…easy to like and definitely the most accessible out of all the adaptations for mainstream audiences. Over the top on purpose but really enjoyable.

Haven't seen the version with Frank Langella (and have no intention to do so unless someone recommends it to me) but will definitely watch the original silent film and report back with another unsolicited review

No. 157335

The 1992 Coppola Dracula has the worst film script I've ever seen in my life. Because the film was a success, they had to wring every coin out of it so the script was published in a collector's edition book you can sometimes find in libraries.
James Hart's whole thing around this time was that no one cares about dialogue so it needs to be kept to a minimum. You get entire pages that look like the following, padded out with FFC's post-film notes.

Dissapointing is an understatement.
Libfem shit is as bad a misogynistic shit. I liked the previous movie, and stupid tinfoil, but that makes me wonder if they fired the female director halfway through the shooting of the movie but kept her name so people would watch it kek.

I like Cruella (2021) better, and that made me realize I'm so tired of seeing female characters doing ""feminine"" shit and talking about things unrelated to the plot like high heels or fashion, when the movie is not about those topics. At least Cruella (2021) was about fashion.

a little late to the party but i finally watched inside. i had no clue who he was until i saw promising young woman and my friend was like ‘omg i can’t believe bo burnham is in this’
i found inside to be a bit boring and the songs a bit amusing but overall not very noteworthy. in terms of editing and sound and picture quality it was faultless but in terms of content.. i’m lukewarm on it. i can understand why certain people would like it but i didn’t find it too interesting or that it was saying something that hadn’t been said before. i prefer to watch art where the creator has sincerely and whole heartedly committed to a message, to a theme to something and they don’t leave room for self doubt and self analyzing and self criticism. i know those things are kind of central to inside but i guess it’s just not something i enjoy watching. i prefer it when the protagonist is a cunt and isnt bothered about deconstructing their privilege and being woke. seeing someone be so vulnerable on camera (although a large part of that was a performance in a sense) gives me some form of second hand embarrassment, as if i am the one experiencing that vulnerability.
as for white womans instagram. i tried to watch it and laugh at myself but it kind of fell flat because he is a white man. like mind your own business, you know? also i don’t do anything he mentions in the song on instagram
as a lesbian it was an affront to my eyes to see him nearly naked and full on naked so many times.
this is probably an incoherent mess but i guess if i was to rate it i would give it 3/5 stars.

also i live in a kind of remote area on a farm so my experience with covid and lockdowns has been vastly different to a lot of city people so maybe that’s why i didn’t connect to it as much.

Saaaaaaame on both counts. I knew I hated WW84 after it chose to show Cheetah was going crazy through a What If Feminism But Too Much!?!??!? moment with the fucking catcaller, like…..really? In the fucking Wonder Woman movie, you decide to portray a woman being angry about the kind of indignity almost every woman watching the movie has dealt with from a cruelly young age as the Big Villain Moment? It could have chosen ANYTHING ELSE. Tbh it felt like a slap in the face, as this is supposed to be the big feminist superhero movie franchise. It landed especially badly imho b/c Gadot's Diana doesn't really have much of a personality and with the "oooh your heels!" thing it just felt like "don't be a crazy bitch girls, be a nice hot girl who abstractly fights for women but literally never says or does anything to alienate the male audience and wears heels and revolves entirely around some scrote." Like fuck off, I can't believe this is the same woman who made fucking Monster.

Also lmao, I also enjoyed Cruella and agree. Weird to contrast them–WW is this feminist icon, and I felt nothing from her movie, while Cruella is an infamous villain and I had a great time watching her be a huge brilliant bitch.

I watched this and it was just okay to me. On the plus side, the pig is super cute, I love her little cheek tufts. Downside, she's not actually in the movie very much. I wasn't bored but I also couldn't really get into it. The personal scenes felt forced and the over the top scenes didn't seem to go far enough. It was like it just didn't know what it wanted to be. Comedy? Drama? Thriller? A treatise on the culinary industry? In the end it didn't do any of those things especially well. Person I saw it with loved it though so who knows.

I think I’m gonna watch Three Idiots again tonight. It’s one of my favorite movies but I haven’t seen it in a long time. It’s a Bollywood movie about engineering college students dealing with the Indian education system and the things that come with it. The genre is “all in one”, which isn’t really a thing in the west but is common in Bollywood. It’s got elements of comedy, drama, musical, etc. If you haven’t seen it (even if you’ve never seen a Bollywood movie) I highly recommend it. It’s also a great movie for current university students.

Massive, complaining sperg incoming.

Watching this with family was so uncomfortable. Any merit it had as a decent thriller with good effects and suspenseful moments was effectively killed when the main antagonist started babbling DDLG porn scripts and mocking the protagonist about her rape in the last quarter. As he attempts to strangle her, he "ironically" reenacts the rape of a father on his daughter. Like how tasteless can you be? I could barely believe my ears, it was so blatantly fetishistic. I also hated the part where she started talking like a little child. It wasn't creepy nor pitiable or even remotely compelling. It was just gross.

I'm so tired of rape and childhood sexual abuse being the Big Twist or a character's only motivation/backstory. I swear to God, women characters in male directed films either have no personality whatsoever, or their only personality is "extremely traumatised."

Ultimately I don't even get what this movie is about, or who it's for, or what it was trying to say. It borrows a lot from the "vulnerable woman cleverly incapacitates predatory male" genre. Realistically, physically she's no match for the intruders— and definitely not all three of them at once. The movie's greatest catch is the interesting setting (a house full of booby traps), and the methods the protagonist uses to isolate and murder her enemies, one by one. For that reason I wish we'd gotten a better idea of the house's layout and how the secret passages worked. That might have been cool.

As for themes, towards the end they really harp on the idea of guilt, inescapable histories, accepting responsibility, and (to a lesser extent) forgiveness from the victim. But that theme is totally thrown out the window when the protagonist, having killed three people in one night, as well as aiding and abetting countless murders for the past ten years, walks off the screen into the unknown— completely unaccountable. Did I mention this woman is legitimately agoraphobic and had a panic attack just from standing on her front porch earlier in the day? It's unbelievable that she would be able to walk outside like it's nothing. We have no clue where she could be going or what her future plans are. It's disappointing.

A much better ending would still have her torching the house in which she was abused… and then choosing to burn inside it. At the very least, it'd wrap up these wishy washy themes. She lets go of the past by destroying the house. She accepts responsibility for her actions by going down with it. She forgives herself for her crimes enough to afford herself an easy ending— easier, at least, than being chewed up and spit out by the American justice system, and asks forgiveness of her victims with her death. And by watching her walk outside, and then back inside to die, she further acknowledges her agency and ties up the whole story with a sweet little agoraphobic ribbon. To think she would rather die than leave her house— or perhaps that she deserves to die with it and put an end to all the misery it holds— is much more chilling than the vague "crazy woman at large" angle. And I mean, at least my version is open to several angles of interpretation! The actual ending is just like, uhh whatever, roll credits.

Would not watch again nor recommend.

Not the film version! I watched this drama before I did the playthrough of the original game and thought it was really good. It wasn't amazing, but there were some really poignant scenes that got me. The ending scene tore my heart out for sure.

Saw an anon reccomend this movie after the Jesus thirst sperg somewhere, so I decided to give it a watch, and this movie is an… Experience. I don't really know how to describe it other than that.
Everything in this film is just so weird. The characters, the edititng, the plot, the visuals, the acting. Someone compared it to A Clockwork Orange in terms of how it feels and I think that's spot on. Despite the themes and the script, it's such a hippie movie - not in a bad way. A lot of the scenes were shot in a way to make you feel like you're experiencing sensory overload or motion sickness to get a point across, like you were on acid or shrooms. Some scenes in that respect were nicely done, some not so much (that scene where the naked convent girls started humping Jesus and a priest climbed onto a banister and started jacking off made my eyes hurt). Plus the overarching idea of Father Grandieu being overturned because the French monarchy (The Man, dude) needed the city to become catholic, Jeanne claiming he raped her and the prostitute conspiring with the city officials for revenge all combining to say that religion, conspiracy and lust can be like, totally revolutionary dude - I just found that kind of a product of it's time. Again, not a bad thing, but just very late 60s-early 70s.
Also, the characters - I never liked Father Grandieu. Just didn't like him. He seemed overly pretentious, talking to literally every woman in the movie like a kid and yet taking advantage of them, making these big flouncy speeches just for no one to really give a shit lol (and he wasn't even fucking hot! Motherfucker looks like Ron Jeremy). Sister Jeanne, though? The unhinged, conniving, evil crazy woman I love to see. She was just charming and kind of relatable to me, and although she should've probably forseen getting a violent exorcism and subsequent rapes after saying she's haunted by an incubus, I don't think she deserved everything that happened to her.
Overall, watch this movie while you're high for best results. 6.5/10 for me.

Unpopular opinion time I guess? I watched "Lady in the Water" after avoiding it for a long time and I don't get why is it so hated. It's not an exceptionally good movie but it's not the utter shit that people make it out to be either. I actually thought it was kind of cute and atmospheric, with some interesting visuals. I even liked the story, which works fine as long as you appreciate it for what it is - a fairytale. Sure, the Shyamalan self insert character feels incredibly narcissistic but it seems to me like the reviewers got a bit too aggro about that and the cringy "muh evul film critics!!" part and bashed the whole thing more than it deserved. Altough I agree that the random attemps at comedy were annoying and took away from the general tone. The acting, apart from Paul Giamatti's, was not great either but overall I'd say the movie was decent. I also thought Bryce Dallas Howard looked really beautiful

just watched promising young woman and absolutely despised it on every human level due to the last act. i was so hype for this movie that this disappointment is poignant.

i really wanted to love the movie but cassie's death was like an unwanted punch in the gut. just as i was gearing up to accept it as a bold artistic choice to demonstrate that the men in these positions never get their retribution, in rolls in the last second "victory" ending in the form of the police. the police, which the whole movie has spent emphasizing to us are absolutely worthless at dealing with rape cases, are somehow the saviors.

the last 5 minutes of this movie are incredibly confused. it wanted to have it's satisfactory victory ending where things work out for the protagonist, but it also wanted to be a sucker punch subverting that. either could have worked, but when you combine them into one, what's churned out is sloppily stitched together letdown that doesn't seem to know what it wants to say. that the only way rape victims and those who seek vengeance for them can truly get that is through death? i don't find that a subversion of rape revenge movies at all.

i had some gripes with other parts of the movie, but i could have overlooked them and seen it as an overall compelling product had the ending been literally anything else.

I just saw Last Night in Soho and it was great. I have never really been a fan of Edgar Wright, not that he's a bad director, but it's not my thing. It had a great atmosphere and cinematography, especially if you enjoy 60s aesthetics. I did not see the twist coming.

Yes it was good, a really nice start to the Dune universe. It's used as a complex introduction, I know some dunefags were disappointed to see only half of the first book covered in the movie but it was really well done. The next movie is going to be super cool. The Hans Zimmer OST was good but god damn it, did it got annoying after a bit.

yes! yes yes yes yes yes! i absolute loved it. it turned me into a timmy fan too. i already preordered the bluray dvd, bought all the books (still waiting on volume 2 because it's been out of stock forever) and am planning to see it two more times. it's not just the story, the entire look and feel of the movie is amazing. i sat there with my mouth wide open at times, which never happens to me during movies. when i walked out, i already begged my friend that we can watch it a second time - also never happened to me before with any other movie. it blew me away.

No. 168533

It was enjoyable and a great film to watch in the theatre because it was made for the big screen. Very aesthetic and epic, although like >>168495 said, the soundtrack was a bit much. Every second scene was accompanied by super dramatic music, it was overkill imho. I liked the universe, but I wish they would have expanded on it. Some of the characters looked super interesting, but we never found out much about their origins. It was a movie full of empty buildings and huge deserts, but there was no culture. I would have loved to see how the different nations live and what their values are, but they were really bland. The bad guy was bad™ (and fat, kek), that’s it. And it was way too long. The flashback scenes in the end made me aggressive, too. The whole movie was so simple and obvious, we don’t need ten flashbacks of the same scene to understand what’s happening. I don’t regret watching it because it was an experience somehow, but overall I didn’t like the movie much.

Yeah, it was very good. The main couple was incredibly likeable and full of humanity.

Can anyone explain why Tarkovsky is considered one of the greatest (or please let me know I’m not the only one who feels like he is slightly overrated). Granted I’ve only seen two of his movies, Stalker and Solaris. I consider my preference in movies pretentious. I love old classics, Arthaus, I don’t mind movies exploring philosophical ideas, so I had great expectations, but in this case sadly I just couldn’t get the hype about him. Idk how to explain. Like there are some great ideas, the visuals are often stunning, he’s good at suggesting something (some scenes with great tension in both movies). But both films were mainly dudes reciting long monologues. The ideas feel a bit half-finished, but maybe that’s the point and I’m supposed to fill in the blanks myself. Might also be a language barrier, as the dialogue seems a bit unnatural to me, not speaking Russian. It feels like both movies where mostly some guys talking a whole lot over some slow panning shots (especially Stalker). Like there is so much dialogue I’d rather just read the book, the film medium didn’t add anything that couldn’t be accomplished by a book.

I kept waiting for the bit where he'd fuck his female student or steal his male student's manuscript, but it never came. Extremely tight dialogue.

I really enjoyed the more comedic segments (travelogue and the last one), but I felt the problem was it lacked a strong frame narrative to hold it all together, so it doesn't really feel like it comes to a conclusion.

I watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year and I've had mixed feelings on it for a long time. Obviously I like it enough to re watch it, but it has so many scrotey scenes that I end up leaving the room to get a snack or take a piss 2 or 3 times every viewing. On one hand it portrays the generic cheery family man as a psychopath who makes everyone miserable and loses his shit when his perfect family christmas doesn't go his way, but it doesn't do anything meaningful with the premise. But then again, it's a christmas movie, so it should have some holiday cheer. It's stuck in this weird spot between cynical and happy holiday romp. Other Christmas movies do satire in a way that's realistic but still manages to be heartwarming. I just wish we got to see Elaine Benes punch Clark Griswold in the face.

I actually liked Raw, but I think the director's attempt to justify the violence and gore was stupid. Both her films fall under a genre called New French Extremity that's characterized by shock imagery–you'd think that would be explanation enough.

Just finished "Old" by M. Night Shyalaman. It was okay, I'm not loving it or hating it. The final is unexpected and a good twist. I'm a little weirded out by the sexual things happening to the kids, not just the pregnancy thing that imo was unnecessary, it doesn't add nothing to the story, but i guess it was there for shock value, but also that rapper that was acting close to the girl because she started to age, also unnecessary for the first blonde girl to be naked ??? i guess scrote directors gonna scrote. Also her death wasn't resolved either, neither for the black woman, did they just drowned? And why were the visitors from the same experiment (like the blonde and the rapper, or the phsychologist and nurse couple) dropped at different times? Now that I think about it, the blonde and the rapper were already on the beach the night before, but he wasn't aged by the next morning. Huh

Can’t believe I never watched Byzantium until today. I loved it. Yes it’s a bit cliche for a vampire movie but the mood, the acting, the pace were all very engaging. The screenplay is by the lady who wrote Harlots (tv show) which I liked as well. Made me nostalgic for 2010’s vampire obsession.

They made a movie about girls overcoming trauma from a school shooting. Cool, right? That's kind of nice. Then they couldn't be bothered to give the girl playing a 16 year old a bra and had her lift her top a little before the camera moved away. WHY? I don't understand why is it always scrote first. No matter what nothing can be for us it always comes down to trying to get coomers to watch. I'm so sick of it. They do this shit with euphoria too.

Encanto would’ve been great as an animated series, even if it would’ve been short, it would’ve been better since the other characters were interesting, like the mom and the shapeshifting cousin, idk, as a movie it feels rushed, the song of the strong sister was absolutely unnecessary even though I liked her.

It was so embarrassing playing off peoples selfish behaviour as always motivated by mental illness that could be fixed by being nice to them, what a kiddie tier take. I unironically happy when May died and Norman was shitting on her for being a dumbass 'Just be kind' idiot. Sometimes people are just dickheads only looking out for their own interest. Is this going to be Marvel's new direction, all villains are really just sad and need codling? The only thing I enjoyed was seeing the old actors back in their roles.

I also thought it was dumb how Holland’s world acted weirdly superior to Maguire’s and Garfield’s, like the “We actually HELP our villains” utoric. Like, Maguire always tried to get the villains to change and be their old selves? Especially with Norman, his fathers friend who he tried to help but Norman ended up killing himself with the glider, and Doc Ock, his mentor who he looked up to and tried to reason with because he respected the man, and who ended up being freed of the arms in his own world without some stupid OP “We’ll just build you a new chip” tech, and willingly chose to kill himself to save New York from being pulled into the second sun.

This may be a long shot, but can anyone recommend a movie with a male lead (preferably not old) where he's unhinged, or gets progressively unhinged, but not in a masculine way, if that makes sense? I don't want him assaulting women or being violent or having qualms about his masculinity or something. He just needs to be unhinged. Kind of like Kevin from 'We Need to Talk About Kevin'. Any genre, I don't mind. Just a movie about a male lead's psyche without any of the man shit.

No. 183859

Maybe check out The Collector (1965)? The male lead is very autistic in the way he speaks and in his movements. He's like Joe Goldberg from You if he was on the spectrum. He's also unhinged, but its not obvious when you first start watching the movie. It doesn't have any sexual violence either, just him becoming obsessed with death

I don't know if you're thinking of Colin Farrell's character or Barry Keoghan's since both could apply, but while Farrell's descent into madness doesn't involve sexual assault he does have a strong undercurrent of perversion. He has a fetish where he prefers his wife to act anesthetized and just lay there motionless while he has sex with her, made far creepier by the fact he's a surgeon, plus he talks to his very young son at one point about how he jacked off his passed out father until he came. Nothing is explicitly shown but thought I'd mention it in case it bothers op.

Watched Saw X. I heard that it was pretty good, but watching it I think it's probably one of the weaker entries in the series. Most of the traps were meh. All the twists were obvious I also really hated how they made the villain so over-the-top evil. They were already bad with the scam but then they had to be even badder. It was just so over the top that it seemed comical. I also didn't like how they tried to portray jigsaw/john as more of a good guy.

finally watched everything everywhere all at once. i had been putting it off because i knew it was going to make me cry. and it did. beautiful, one-of-a-kind, gorgeously chaotic movie, i think it could have removed some of the humor elements and still been so solid. kind of reminded me of a more whimsical version of the matrix.

it also made me want to hug my mom and reconnect with other family members except then i remembered my family is dysfunctional as fuck. i wish i could tell her to watch it, because i think she'd like the family aspect, but i also think it's too "out there" for her and she might not like it cuz she tends to get caught up on not understanding movies that don't fully explain themselves and "make sense".

No. 329399

Yes I came away with the same thoughts but only saw a few other people criticizing it. It did not match the hype at all and I miss all the classic convoluted messy plot points and police detective drama elements. It felt like a weird spinoff and had really simplistic predictable writing to the point it felt like some Netflix movie. It just overall felt kinda dumb and like an unrelated person had to be in charge of a saw project. I prefer following a specific character through tests and keeping everything in one room was boring.

No. 329401

it's kind of amazing that all the saw sequels are technically prequels, yet the best and most simple trap was in saw 1, and it wasn't even really a trap. compare what happens in saw 1 to a fucking blood seesaw.

Ironically I don't think this is a good "mom movie", what with all the weird humor and butt plug jokes. I watched it with my mom recently since was curious, and yeah, she said she didn't "get" it. She's definitely not into these kinds of fantasy sci-fi existential plotlines, though she liked some of the realistic family drama in the laundromat parts

No. 329494

It was weaker than I was expecting after all of the hype, it kinda felt like a "made for a streaming service" movie that happened to get a theatrical release kek. I did like it though, I enjoyed that for once we got a movie where we got to see more of Jigsaw's character and his relationship with Amanda rather than another film where he's just behind the scenes the entire time. The traps were kind of bland, I feel like the first couple hit well and the rest were just meh. I wanted more like the fake out trap on the poster, the more engineered traps feel more high stakes as a viewer than someone being chained up and having to break an ankle or wrist to escape The ending was also a bit of a letdown with Pederson surviving and all but apparently they left it open ended like that because they plan to make another movie?

No. 329626

I thought Saw X was pretty solid, it’s not one of my favorites but just having John, Amanda, and Hoffman back was very nostalgic. The traps were interesting and gruesome enough to be memorable, Valentina’s bone marrow trap was brutal, it was so visceral and knowing she wasn’t going to make it after doing all that was tough to watch. Also I agree that Cecilia was so evil it was almost comical. Like we get it, she’s the textbook definition of a psychopath, you don’t have to create a visual representation of the DSM-5 for us to understand she’s a terrible person.

None of the Saw sequels are prequels iirc, Saw X takes place between Saw 1 and 2, but other than that they were released in chronological order.

I’m hoping that Cecilia died in the end, since we never see her actually escaping. She was the least deserving to live but her trap was so lackluster compared to the others. I think that was intentional though, John wanted her and the others to experience the same false hope that he did, so l wouldn’t be surprised if he left her for dead in that room despite her passing her test. I know that’s going against John’s logic, but his logic has never been completely sound anyways.

Anons, what do you think of the movie Anonymous (2011)? and for those of you who have never heard of it, no, it has nothing to do with 4chan

I think the theory itself is a bit bogus and far fetched. I'm not an expert on any of this at all, but it seems like most of the Shakespeare conspiracy theories that he didn't write his own stuff are just speculation. I wasn't in love with how they portrayed Elizabeth either. Don't get me wrong, she was no angel, but this movie seemed like it was just trying to make her look bad. All of that being said, I loved this movie. Actually right now I'd say its one of my favorites. Not really sure why though. I like the story telling style, the way the future scenes are juxtaposed with the past and how we get to see the story unfold. I'm also just kind of obsessed with the Elizabethan period in general so that's probably a big part of it.

The attitude online that I've seen seems to mostly be negative though. I've even seen people saying the sets and actors were completely wasted on this movie because the plot and the story were so wretched. Idk, now I feel kind of stupid for liking it.

Batman is an incompetent dick throughout the whole movie and he date rapes Vicki Vale twice??? He also tells her to shut up when she's rightfully pissed at him for ghosting her. Also there are so many moments when Batman just stands around and lets people get mugged/shot/terrorized.

Lisa Frankenstein trailer reminded me about The Loneliest Boy in the World. It was randomly showing at the local cinema. And I didn't see anything about it on twi or yt. From the poster you'd think it is something dumb like Disney's Zombies, maybe cute and has potencial for fanart. Very awkward MC stole and was living with very creepy corpses. It was just off putting to me. Why did I expect some sad story like Swiss Army Man, but with neon and pink? And afaik nobody reviewed it, even for the actor from After and he looks like Danny Gonzalez in this screenshot strange!

Can anyone recommend actually scary horror movies that don’t involve the directors clear hatred of women?

No. 330949

cure, noroi: the curse, the night house (more creepy than scary), the mothman prophecies (also more creepy), the wailing, dark water, pulse, retribution, la casa lobo, the exorcist III

No. 330964

seconding Messiah of Evil (didn't know it was co-directed by a woman) and Mikey and Nicky. I also recommend highly Wanda (1970) and Vagabond (1985).

I just watched The Handmaiden for the third time. I still love it. What do anons think about it?

No. 334829

One of my all time favourite movies, I've also watched it 3 times kek. However as I became more peaked I agree with criticisms that the lesbian sex scenes (especially the last one with the bells) are drawn-out and unnecessary and feel low-key malegazey.

Still a 10/10 for me though because I love the 1900s eroguro aesthetic.

Korean embassy in my country is showing a few projections later in the month, which one of these do you think is most worth a watch? I've read "Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982" already and wouldn't mind seeing it in movie form, but if any of these are more worth it I'll watch them instead:

Escape From Mogadishu (2021)
Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 (2019)
Life is Beautiful (2022)
Little Forest (2018)
