Since occasional off-topic threads are okay, what was the last non-anime movie you saw (live-action or animated) and what did you think of it?

Just saw alita battle angel and it was a really fun ride! It was in 3d for no extra price which was nice, since they didn't do any cheesy 3d effects, it just made the movie look like it had depth. Maybe I'll think about reading the source material

I rewatched Police Story yesterday. It's still one of my favorite martial arts movies and I especially like the end fight in the department store. The three camera shots for they used for "that" scene is really cool and I like the behind the scenes stuff that plays during the credit scroll.

I'm a big fan of Jackie Chan's movies, but seeing some of the stunts he pulled has me seriously wondering if he had a deathwish. My favourite film of his is probably "The Young Master" as there is a good balance of action and comedy, especially in the fight where Jackie picks up a man's prized pipe to defend himself, so while the man wants to hit Jackie, he also has to avoid breaking the pipe Jackie is holding.

His drunken boxing in "Drunken Master" is mesmerising to watch, it's just a shame that there are so few occasions where he uses the drunken boxing style to fight.

It's been a while since I last watched any martial arts films, so I might have to go on another binge soon.

I'm surprised at how hardy he seems to be too. There's a scene in Police Story 2 where Jackie is tied up and stripped to the waste and the villains throw firecrackers that pop when they hit him. You can definitely tell that he isn't faking the pain.

I forgot just how much Jackie Chan likes to dress up as a woman. Do girls make the best martial artists?

For anyone wondering, this scene is from his 1979 film Fearless Hyena

>>30178
I suppose if his hands survived sliding down the pole in the first Police Story, then he can handle anything. He actually got second degree burns on his hands from that slide. I can't believe he didn't quit making movies then and there.

I re-watched Black Swan today!
It was perfect!

 No.30541

I watched Enter the Void today!
And here I thought watching Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was trippy, this whole movie felt like you're on drugs from start to finish... Definitely don't watch it if you're epileptic!
I think the story itself was a bit weak but the visuals and camera work were amazing! It was an interesting experience, I've definitely never watched anything like it before!

 No.30543

I saw Us last week which was pretty confusing but still really god. I'm not really sure what the director was trying to say, I think Get Out was a lot easier to understand the symbolism and stuff. Maybe I'll rewatch it when it comes out on ブルーレイ and it'll make more sense then

>>30541
Oh that looks really cool, I really liked seeing Fear and Loathing.

It was actually really spooky and had some interesting plot twists! It kind of reminded me of Event Horizon but better!
Definitely one of the best sci-fi horror movies I've watched!

I love this movie, the elliptical intro with the stylized font is one my favourite cinematic entrances. Camera work was really good and I loved the 1st person PoV scenes. Other Gasper Noe works are good with the elliptical scenes that I adore, it's hard to find other work that creates scenes like these. It really captures the drug vibe and the city atmosphere makes it unqiue. The story is a little loose but I think it's fun to discuss.

 No.30990

I watched Synecdoche, New York today!
It was super weird but really interesting! The story was touching but the way it was told was all over the place, I guess Charlie Kaufman is well known for making strange movies like that! It definitely was a mesmerizing watch!

Ahhh thats one of my favorite movies!!! I remember watching it a few years and being blown away. I definitely should rewatch it sometime soon on Bluray instead of just DVD like last time.

It's one of my favorite movies too, I really like Philip Seymour Hoffman's acting in this. I'm still sad that he's gone now.. I like Charlie Kaufman's world, I have yet to watch the other movies he directed but Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind are other films which he has worked on that I really like.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I watched it right after he passed which made it pretty impactful too. Though I suppose most of his roles are kind of that same character type

detective pikachu was soooo good. it felt like I was a kid again, and it reminded me a lot of how I used to imagine I had a pet pokemon and was a pokemon trainer. My favorite one was this one, maybe I should start catching up on the games I don't think I've played one since emerald

I watched The Fall last weekend!
The cinematography reminded me a lot of Alejandro Jodorowsky but with a plot that's a lot easier to follow! There were tons of amazing set pieces! The story was sweet and pretty easy to follow so if you enjoy watching surrealist movies that don't make your head hurt I'd recommend it!

i finally watched all the matrix movies today since I had it off! I'd seen bits and pieces of them over the years, but never the whole thing. The kungfu scenes were really cool and super well choreographed. I wish I had seen them sooner though, I can only imagine what it must have been like seeing them in the movie theaters.

Just saw Godzilla King of the Monsters. It has a lot of flaws but still ends being a really nice movie, there's a lot of important details they got right for long time Goji fans and still is welcoming to first timers. I liked it much more than the 2014 release.

 No.31633

I just watched Funky Forest: The First Contact!
It's a very weird movie about dreams, music, relationships and UFOs! There's lots of tiny segments that are loosely connected with each other, it reminded me of watching a comedy TV show with lots of short skits! The movie was very entertaining and I laughed a lot but it's definitely not for everyone, if you like weird movies and Japanese comedy I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Sounds interesting, but what does Harlock have to do with it?
>>31631
I'm not sure if I will watch it. The first American movie was, as everyone knows, trash and I personally could not bear watching the second one and had to turn it off. I think the only movie that has ever come close to the original was Anno's, something which he acknowledged in the movie (original Toho credit opening, original roar, use of original theme). The silly Showa sequels are nice too, and I always liked watching them when I was young, but how close does this movie come to those? Is it more like the Heisei movies?

>Sounds interesting, but what does Harlock have to do with it?

You'll have to watch the movie to find out!

 No.31638

>>31635
I guess the closest comparison would be the Heisei movies. It's not a silly Showa brawl but also far from the gravity of 1954 or Shin. Out of all western-made Godzillas this one is by far the most respectful to actual fans.I don't want to spoil too much but there's a lot of nice little details that show they actually care about the franchise, including using the 1954 roar, arrangements of the original songs, etc, plus all the Kaiju were handled really well, which is what matters the most for me.
Some really questionable decision regarding the human element of the history that drag the movie down needlessly, but if you are worried about watching another western Godzilla, King of the Monsters is a much safer bet.

Personally, I'm going to watch it a 2nd time. What they got right was really good, and there is much to appreciate.

I just saw aladdin and booksmart which were both really good. Booksmart kinda reminded me of Superbad except... not at all? Not sure how to describe it. I also can't wait to see Godzilla on tuesday I am really excited!

I just watched Survive Style 5+!
It was hilarious for the most part but actually delved into some deep and interesting subjects! I think the overall message of being true to yourself and living life to its fullest, not matter what setbacks you face was really touching! That was my interpretation of the movie anyway!
The plot itself was pretty weird but not in a nonsensical way, the overall story was still cohesive in itself and I liked how all the small sub-plots were connected with one another in some way!
I enjoyed this a lot, I think this might be one of the best movies I've ever watched, give it a try if you want to watch a weird Japanese movie about life and death that doesn't take itself too seriously!

I saw Dark Phoenix! I think I missed quite a few of the movies and didn't realize until after the fact that there's been a bunch of movies since first class. I thought it would just be a sequel...

I hadn't heard anything about this movie, probably because it was a netflix exclusive. I'll be sure to watch it. I liked the show back when it was airing and haven't seen it since the series finished back in 2013.

I watched it too. It was really nice and didn't ruin the conclusion like how many things like that can do.

As I was watching it I found myself wondering how much of it was extra footage that they never got around to showing in the main series, but that was already filmed and the director really wanted to show to people like the walt cafe scene
