Okay, some of my all time favorite films:

#1, Jaws 3... in 3D!!! (1983)

It's the one where Jaws, or the son of, follows the Brody family to the Caribbean on their family vacation. Jaws soon starts causing havoc amongst the local population and even bites the leg off of Ellen Brody as she swims the warm blue waters.
Great scene!
He kills a few people as well.


#2, Attack of the Drones (2002)

Classic story telling drama and suitable for all ages but especially popular with males of all ages as it starred Natalie Portman dressed in a sexy tight white action suit.
But the best part? Millions of pre-programmed drones attacking everything in their path. Brilliant!
The story did get a bit complicated towards the end but it didn't matter.
Not with Natalie Portman and then all those drones causing complete chaos!


#3, Hebie Fully Loaded (2005)

This one was a real heart warmer, and if I had kids at the time of this film's release then I would have definitely taken them to see this flick.
I mean, who doesn’t love a story about a cute looking sentient German made car?

Very touching the relationship this car formed with the main protagonist.
Speaking of whom.. this film starred Lindsay Lohan (again good for a heterosexual male audience) and was shot in Southern California, so the cinematography was a standout.

You can't top these films in my eyes and no amount of pretentious dinner party conversations can convince me otherwise.
Fuck sake I meant your real one, I bet your real answers aren’t even that bad.

These are some of the more interesting reviews I’ve seen for some seriously bottom of the barrel films however, certainly better than the films themselves.

Good analysis, also Short Cuts makes me outright jizz. Although mentioning this sort of thing again The Player is not considered an all time great film, at least in comparison to Nashville (in my opinion legitimately a top 20 and critically almost rated as highly) nor Short Cuts or McCabe for Altman’s works. Probably because it lacks the emotional, humanist and transcendent core of something like Nashville and is more focused on ideas and itself as a work of art, although it it certainly has exhibits a moral centre even if it is one that talks down against commoditisation of art and audiences to some degree, but not the audience of this particular film itself.
I love Short Cuts. As you probably know it's based on the short stories of Raymond Carver, and I have to say that the stories are just amazing (and in my view even "better" than the film), so if you love the film and haven't read them please do. I'm talking about these 3 books:

Will you please be quiet, please?
What we talk about when we talk about love
Cathedral

I saw some of Nashville and it looked great, never finished it, should revisit it.

Hey Admin, you said you love Groundhog Day... it's a postmodern film, isn't it? It's widely considered to be one in critical articles, anyway.

Groundhog Day, a postmodern film? You could see it that way, sure the postmodern artist often tries to play God, but here, it's to inspire the viewer to strive upwards. He doesn't create rules and try to deconstruct reality for the pleasure of destroying it or showing how pointless it is.

For that reason, it is a Christian movie to me ;) :

I hear you.
I think you might not be interested, as you hate it so much ;) . But I'd encourage you to watch "The Player" again, but this time as I feel Altman meant it - the police are the moral center of the movie and the only good, "real" people, every single other actor in the film, including the narrator at the end, is the embodiment of shallowness and evil. So from the point of view of the police I think it is also a Christian movie in the way that you mean it, as we are meant to sympathize and identify with the police, even though at the end evil triumphs. So it's definitely cynical/pessimistic about humankind, not at all uplifting like Groundhog Day (which I also love). But I think it's also "true"... people do sometimes get away with murder, at least in the short term.

Some stuff I’ve been watching:

Tv shows:

You was good

Happy was good

Castlevania was awesome. Makes me want to get into more anime stuff although I’m having trouble finding anything with a similar vibe


Movies:

Ready player One was good

Hereditary was terrifying :o (so yes it was good)

Birdbox was good (yes I liked it damnit :lol: )

Bandersnatch was OK, but felt anticlimactic....maybe I just didn’t pick the right ending. Honestly seems like a pain to go back and do the whole thing over again just to try and get something different




Currently about halfway through Homecoming, pretty interesting so far, hoping it ends strong

I saw the first episode of Roswell, New Mexico the other night. This series stars Jeanine Mason and she looked fooking smoking hot in ep 1.
I nearly started pleasuring myself.

I'm watching the new True Detective Season 3. Well, it's not really a "season" because each Season is a different story with different characters. And True Detective had for me more of a "very long movie" feeling rather than a series.

Image

True Detective in a nutshell is a Police Drama with very entertaining cases and a lot of long and slow pacing dialogues.

Well, in the new season the main character (played by Mahershala Ali) a badass Detective with a Vietnam past and surprise, he is black. When I first heard that they chose a black guy for the new season, I hoped that they didn't do it for the sake of having diversity cause the first 2 seasons, we had just white people.

I watched the first 2 episodes and I have to say, I fucking like it. I didn't know the actor well before and went as neutral as possible and I already like this guy.

Stephen Dorff is playing as his partner and some people might know him from the Blade movie back in the day. Good actor as well.

Also, check out the Soundtrack from Season 2. Absolutely brilliant. Sometimes Hollywood produces a Diamant when they actually stop to be SJW faggots.

I’m going to start watching it once some more episodes build up so that I can binge

They probably did choose a black guy at least partly for the sake of diversity this season. I know this guy from House of Cards and he was pretty good in that

I saw Glass, and it really sucked. Would not recommend watching it. Complete waste of time.

I think both Republicans and Democrats will like Farenheight 11/9, because it says damning
things about both political parties. What I didn't like about it was that it concentrated too much
on Michael Moore city of birth, Flint Michigan.

That sucks. I liked "Unbreakable" and I know Glass is meant as a kind of sequel for it, and another movie. Oh well.

That's exactly the way I felt. Unbreakable rocked, and in some ways it was better than his first film.
I went to see the movie with my son, and I wanted to walk out of the theater.

The story is very bad. There is no logic to it, so despite the fact it has big names (Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis), it
still sucked. If it wasn't for the actors in it, it would be a Sundance film.

Am I the only one that doesn't think this guy is Wolf Pack or am I missing something? Seems like an old timer from HairLossTalk but said a large amount inconsistent about transplants, meds etc with his posts over there. Very different writing styles too.
