Thanks for the recommendation, finished watching Mulholland Drive just now!
It was a lot closer to what I'd expect from Lynch than Wild at Heart was, especially towards the later half of the movie! I think I got the general gist of what the movie was about but I feel like I'd have to watch it a second time to fully understand what was really going on. The narrative was pretty confusing and there was a ton of symbolism going on and a lot of the things that happened seemed to lack any explanation at all but I kind of like that since it gives the movie a surreal atmosphere!
I think I'll stick with Lynch for now, I'll probably watch Lost Highway next though it'll probably take a few weeks before I got time to watch another movie!

Just finished watching Lost Highway!
This one was even stranger than Mulholland Drive… It's funny how Lynch tells a story in an almost incoherent way but still has a plot for the viewer to follow so they can piece together what actually happened. His movies don't seem completely nonsensical to me, there's a purpose to everything that happens, it's just difficult to understand the purpose behind certain scenes. I enjoy his unconventional way of story telling so far! Although a David Lynch movie was definitely the last place I was expecting to hear a Rammstein song in…
Anyway I think I'll watch Inland Empire next and probably take a break from Lynch movies after that!

I just finished Inland Empire and it wasn't the best Lynch movie I've seen so far to be honest.
It had an interesting premise with the whole cursed movie plot and an actress that finds it increasingly difficult to differentiate between the role she's playing and her real life but it all kind of went nowhere and just dissolved into random scenes that don't seem to follow any rhyme or reason and are all loosely connected at best.
Well I suppose that's what Lynch is known for but until now every movie of his that I watched at least had some kind of plot thread that I could follow, something that held the movie together but this had nothing as far as I can tell, it's like I was stuck in a fever dream for 3 hours and then just woke up in front of my screen. I guess you could interpret it as a metaphor for making movies where you shoot everything scene by scene and it doesn't necessarily make sense during production? I dunno I'm kind of at a loss with this one…
I'd only recommend Inland Empire to the most diehard Lynch fans, if you're interested in watching his movies definitely start somewhere else.


File: 1528396863362.jpg (51.93 KB, 675x453, La-Jetée-2.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching La Jetee!
It's the movie 12 Monkeys was based off, the story is very similar but it's a lot shorter and mostly told through still images instead of video!
It's about the length of an anime episode so if anyone wants to watch a movie about time travel I'd recommend it!


File: 1529784177282.png (487.22 KB, 921x619, rashomon.png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching Rashomon!
I've read the short story it's based on before but I didn't know the movie actually added an additional part to it!
I enjoyed it a lot, although the movie is pretty old it still holds up today, I think!


I just watched it because of your recommendation. It was really good! I really liked the narration to it, it felt like a short story narrated with pictures with some extra effects like the doctors whispering in German. And the story was really interesting! In general, I like stories about time travel since it is such an interesting idea to me and something that I've always wanted to do. I'd recommend watching Primer another cool time travel movie.
Akira Kurosawa is one of my favorite directors. I have seen almost all of his movies, and there still isn't one that I haven't liked. I think Rashomon is a just plain interesting movie and the short story is really good. Toshiro Mifune is great as always in this one. Have you seen Yojimbo? That's my favorite Kurosawa film I think. I love the wide shots of Mifune walking in the town. It's so cool!


I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I watched Primer a year ago or so, I think it's one of the best time travel movies out there!
Rashomon was the first Akira Kurosawa movie I watched, actually! I really liked it so I'll make sure to check out Yojimbo once I have the time!

Are any nenfrens gonna watch hot new anime movie Mirai no Mirai, the Future's Future of the Future?

It's by that digimon guy, the same director that did The Shoujo That Leapt Through Toki; Natsu Wars; Wolf Children Rain and Snow; and The Boy and The Bakemono.

I didn't read much about it or watch much of the trailer, but it has time travel in it and the poster looks like it's trying really hard to be Toki Shoujo again.


I might have watched the trailer for this, there's a really cool fantasy train station in the middle of it.


that sounds really ii ne, maybe i'll wait until it's on bluray or something and then I can watch it with frens instead of by myself!

I just saw black klansman which was pretty good. definitely felt like a spike lee movie


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.


File: 1539021745593.jpg (99.92 KB, 1600x676, shutter-island.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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!


File: 1541034471270.png (663.91 KB, 1196x626, boxing-helena.png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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?


File: 1543515410611.jpg (420.23 KB, 2185x3186, A_Scanner_Darkly_Poster.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]


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.
