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?

Last Samurai, it was okay but I was quite disappointed with the portrayal of Line infantry tactics and formations. Movies tend to get these kinds of things quite wrong.

I just finished watching Yojimbo and I enjoyed it a lot!
The action scenes were a bit lackluster but the dialogue was great and Mifune's character was super cool! You're always wondering what his next move is gonna be which kept the story exciting!
The whole movie kind of reminded me of a western and I actually found out after watching it that it was the inspiration for A Fistful of Dollars.
I'm definitely going to watch some more Akira Kurosawa movies once I have the chance, thanks for the recommendation!

Just watched perfect blue at the moobie theater. It was very scary and intense, I didn't like some of the perverted parts though.


You should watch Millennium Actress.

I just watched The Red Spectacles directed by by Mamoru Oshii. It was the first movie in the Kerberos saga that includes Jin Roh: the wolf brigade. A lot more surreal than I was expecting but I really enjoyed it! It reminded me of a Seijun Suzuki movie.

Just finished Shutter Island and it was super good!
I'm not gonna talk about it because I don't want to spoil anything but if you like psychological mystery movies you'll probably like it!


I liked that movie too.


Thank you for the recommendation! I really enjoyed it.


Watch First Man in theaters


I love whiplash and la la land which are by the same director, so I was planning on it! I need to find out when the theater has its cheap showing, and if I wait for it to get a bit colder I can sneak some snacks in with my coat


Watching spooky movies tonight!
Just finished Rosemary's Baby! It was a very slow burn but it kept the tension high throughout the movie, I'm not going to spoil anything but the pay-off at then end was definitely worth it!
I might watch another spooky movie later today!

Just finished watching Boxing Helena!
It was rather mediocre, but I guess it's till an impressive movie considering Jennifer Lynch was 19 when she directed it. Not quite as spooky or shocking as I expected but oh well! Maybe I'll check out some of her other movies to see if they are any better.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun and spooky Halloween!


I still haven't seen first man but I just saw bohemian rhapsody in the theater and I thought it was really good. the ending concert felt like it really dragged on and on though...


File: 1541662694405.jpg (91.2 KB, 1280x536, Nobi AKA Fires on the Plai….jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Watched Nobi (Fires on the Plain) by Kon Ichikawa.
It made me think of this passage from the Apology:
"Perhaps you think that I was convicted for lack of such words as might have convinced you, if I though I should say or do all I could to avoid my sentence. Far from it. I was convicted because I lacked not words but boldness and shamelessness and the willingness to say to you what you would most gladly have heard from me, lamentations and tears and my saying and doing many things that I say are unworthy of me but that you are accustomed to hear from others. I did not think then that the danger I ran should make me do anything low, nor do I regret the nature of my defense. I would much rather die after this kind of defense than live after making the other kind. Neither I nor any other man should, on trial or in war, contrive to avoid death at any cost. Indeed it is often obvious in battle that one could escape death by throwing away one's weapons and by turning to supplicate one's pursuers, and there are many ways to avoid death in every kind of danger if one will venture to do or say anything to avoid it. It is not difficult to avoid death, gentleman; it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death."

Just finished The Usual Suspects!
It was really good! The mystery around Keyser Söze kept the movie interesting although unfortunately I figured out his identity before the big reveal which was a bit disappointing...


(the last minute is just a commercial)


I just saw overlord, it was really spooky movie. The body horror parts really made me uncomfortable, but I really liked Wyatt Russells character


>The body horror parts really made me uncomfortable
Isn't that the point?


you should watch movies that make you feel ii ne instead.


being shocked and disturbed can be cathartically ii ne in its own way


I didn't really know what the movie was going to be about so it shocked me a bit. I thought it was just going to be a normal ww2 movie kind of like captain america with some supernatural nazi stuff

Yeah I think I'll try to find a nicer movie to watch this weekend


I agree. Nobi made me feel ii ne even if it's not a happy movie.


File: 1542903316165.jpg (94.75 KB, 940x646, FearAndLoathingLasVegas.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!
It was a real trip! I think it accurately captured the feeling of being on psychedelic drugs! I'm a little shocked that it's supposedly somewhat autobiographical... Maybe I'll give the book a read if I have the time!



This thumbnail looks like a videogame screenshot, very weird lighting


> I think it accurately captured the feeling of being on psychedelic drugs!
uhh... how would you know?


Yakui told him!


What are some Yakui-approved movies?

I really like this movie

Just finished watching MOON!
Probably one of the best sci-fi movies I've ever watched, GERTY was my favourite character! The soundtrack was great too!


Moon is one of my favorite movies too! I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!


File: 1543707356807.png (204.06 KB, 455x633, 1437710741139.png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Oh my gosh I've been meaning to watch moon for the longest time and I've heard so many good things about it. Maybe I'll get it from the dvd spot tomorrow!


You're really cute.


You're cutetoo!


I liked that movie too.


I just saw instant family with mark whalburg which was a pretty nice movie


I saw Outlaw King. The story is not the best and they take quite a few liberties but the costumes and locations are really nice and mostly quite accurate.

I watched Oldboy today!
The story was super dark and there weren't as many fighting scenes as I expected but it was very enjoyable and had me hooked until the end! The plot takes a lot of turns and I had the feeling that I never quite knew what was really going on until the very end! I'd recommend it to any fans of violent mystery thrillers!


I liked Oldboy.
Also, that painting was by James Ensor, I recommend checking him out if you thought that one was interesting.


i like their painting style it reminds me of Van Gogh


I'm seeing They Shall Not Grow Old today! It's the last day of screening if any other nenpos want to see a neat world war 1 documentary in theaters.


I think I missed the only screening here...


I heard they're giving the movie a wider release since it did so well on the two days of screening! They say it's showing in 25 markets starting on February 1st so you may still get your chance.


I saw that after posting, this is incredible news!


I watched The Prestige today!
It's a movie about magicians with lots of twists and mysteries! I'm sure almost everyone has seen it by now but if you haven't I'd highly recommend it!


I've been watching Schitt's Creek. I really like Daniel Levy's character and his scenes with Emily Hampshire


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 would probably give that movie a chance if her face didn't look like it went through one of those "make yourself look like an anime character" apps.


I thought she looked cool
