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?


It's been a while so I don't remember… but I will bump this thread next time I watch a movie.


I saw Sicario. It's pretty cool, reminded me a lot of the first season of True Detective.


File: 1455312249179.jpg (38.05 KB, 260x386, Oculus.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I saw Oculus, and even though it's another spooky mirror film, I thought it was interesting and very well made.

I wish the ending was happier though. I know it's a horror film, but seeing the characters fail in the end after trying so hard was too sad for me.


File: 1455313000950.jpg (146.69 KB, 1000x790, reservoir dogs.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched Reservoir Dogs yesterday and it was really great!
I like these kind of gangster movies and Tarantino's movies in general so I enjoyed it a lot!


I saw hail, caesar today. It was too meta for me. I watched too many scenes of people watching scenes from movies.


Deadpool movie was pretty good. Probably one of the best superhero movies I've seen.
I thought Deadpool's jokes would be annoying, but I actually found him pretty funny.


File: 1462482524847.jpg (18.58 KB, 500x291, 1041920.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I just watched True Romance! Not as romantic as I expected but still a great movie!


File: 1462491782359.jpg (105.96 KB, 1502x1000, 1461535492005.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]


File: 1462499396058.jpg (19.31 KB, 482x331, 1111.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I was thinking about rewatching this soon


File: 1470862194573.jpg (238.59 KB, 964x1323, __gogo_yubari_kill_bill_dr….jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished rewatching both parts of Kill Bill!
Definitely Tarantino's most over-the-top movie and that's saying a lot!


File: 1474256193812.jpg (71.92 KB, 294x361, cryingbattler.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I saw the new Blair Witch. It was okay, but not really what I was hoping for. My favorite thing about the original film was how ambiguous it was and how many different ways there were to interpret it, but this new one just throws everything right in your face. I don't think it's even possible to explain this movie without magic and a time-traveling witch.


File: 1474261208368.jpg (81.61 KB, 600x449, MPW-48618.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

The ending was dumb, but I liked the overall theme.

Specifically, I wish they'd made the cloud busting scene more ambiguous and cut the slipping through walls entirely


File: 1474522480409.jpg (122.13 KB, 1280x720, dusk-maiden-of-amnesia-12d.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I had an on topic anime thread about mechs (off topic in th sense it didn't involve kawaii 2D girls and moe?)and it was deleted almost immediately.

What's your excuse for this thread Nenmin???
Did she have any kind what soever fan manga made of her? She continues to be a popular actress to this day despite some of her movies being absolute shit.


>What's your excuse for this thread Nenmin???
OP's image doesn't have political memes edited into it, and yours did.
Also, there is a mecha thread here: >>4801


File: 1480121748349.jpg (835.17 KB, 2480x3507, renge.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I'm going on a little journey today to the cinema to watch the new Shinkai mobie soon, wish me luck /nen/!


Good luck!

Last movie that I saw was 10.0 Earthquake, it was dumb, but at least it didn't take itself very seriously.


File: 1480127371959.jpg (209.9 KB, 1400x2100, whiplash.34229.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched whiplash again. its probably my top 5 favorite movies


I just finished watching The Big Lebowski.


Great movie but I never want to watch it again. Simialr feelings about Oldeuboi


i like rewatching it a lot because i can make lots of connections to my own life and it makes me feel energized to not give up on my dreams every time i decide to rewatch it.


the last one I remember is beyond the black rainbow
it was really, REALLY good.
Im vaugely sure that I did see a few after it, but I couldnt say for certain, in any of their cases, whether I saw that one after it.


It's been a while since I've last watched one but it might have been Ugetsu or The Inugamis, both of which I enjoyed. On another note, I rarely keep up with and get enthusiastic about recent releases but I am very excited about Trainspotting 2.


Just finished watching The Hateful 8!
This might be my favourite Tarantino movie, maybe because I really like murder mysteries. It reminded me a lot of Reservoir Dogs, just a lot gorier! Guess it's time to wait for Tarantino's 9th movie now…


File: 1487181878154.jpg (80.16 KB, 720x540, Ikiru 00:05:52.185.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I think it was Ikiru (it's been a while since I've watched anything but anime…)

It was great and made me want to watch more Kurosawa!





It wasn't nearly as grandeous as his other stuff, but I remember Ikiru more than any of them. Especially near the end when his coworkers remember his lesson, but coulnd't bring themselves to change anything about the overarching bureacracy they were all stuck in. That was heavy.


I watched Arrival (2016) and Hacksaw Ridge.

The visual style in Arrival was much too dark. The mystery was dumb and disappointing. I wasn't a fan of the characters either.

Hacksaw Ridge was decent. It was a very typical war movie but it was well done and I would recommend it to anyone who likes war films.


Just finished watching The Others.
Definitely one of the best ghost movies I've ever seen!


how was it


Finally watched Shin Gojira a few weeks ago. It wasn't my cup of tea but it was alright.


I saw la la land last weekend at the 2$ cinema. It was pretty good but I liked whiplash better


File: 1493927280647.jpg (200.8 KB, 678x971, My Way 2011.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched My Way. It's a South Korean WWII movie and is inspired by the soldier Yang Kyoungjong. You should check out his wikipedia entry.

Yang Kyoungjong (March 3, 1920 – April 7, 1992) was a Korean soldier who fought in the Imperial Japanese Army, the Soviet Red Army, and later the German Wehrmacht during World War II. He is to date the only soldier to fight on three sides of a war, and this legendary status has earned him much recognition.

We follow the rivalry of the Korean Jun-Shik and the Japanese Tatsuo throughout WWII and the hardships they have to face. Jun-Shik is portrayed as a unflappable man of virtue and Tatsuo as a close-minded individual who embodies the unfaltering japanese fighting spirit and loyalty. It's a great war movie with all the usual token tropes. Great battles, which are of course not for the faint-hearted, lots of BANZAI and drama. I was quite surprised how well made this movie was, since I've never heard anything about the South Korean movie industry before and I've watched another South Korean war movie called Tae Guk Gi (centered around the Korean War) right afterwards, which was alright, but not as good as this one. A solid recommendation for My Way.


This looks interesting. I've started getting interested into Korean cinema after watching Bakjwi. I've been meaning to watch Oldboy since then, and now this one is also on my list.


File: 1495740210142.jpg (57.8 KB, 1280x544, remember-sammy-jankis-meme….jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished Memento!
Must've been the first time I watched a movie in reverse… It was exiting until the very end, I definitely didn't see that twist coming!


File: 1495743829005.jpg (33.95 KB, 520x729, irreversible-movie-poster.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Irreversible is another film that progresses backwards and, oddly enough, it also has to do with a man tracking down his partner's rapist.


Just finished watching Being John Malkovich and I have seen a world that no man should see…


The concept was interesting.


It was pretty scary…
The whole movie seemed like some kind of kafkaesque fever dream but I enjoyed it!


I was about to say that it reminds me of Synecdoche, New York and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind but then I googled it and realized that they were all written by the same person. I love the way that these abstract concepts are presented.


Finally got to watch T2. I liked it.

Just finished watching eXistenZ and it definitely felt like a Cronenberg movie…
I loved the tooth gun!



It was very ii ne, if you like that mobie, you might also like Petal Dance!!


File: 1497766956968.png (270.15 KB, 1200x630, share2[1].png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Yes it certainly is, I only wish it was longer. I will check it out, thank you for your recommendation.


File: 1498319099772.jpg (64.12 KB, 848x1200, Truman Friends.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind the other day… it made me think about how our memories work.
I like Jim Carrey!


I don't like movies with big-name actors in it because it makes it too easy to kind of spoil the movie for myself.

Eternal Sunshine is the perfect example of this. As soon as I saw Kirsten Dunst's character, I knew there was more to her than just "receptionist" or "admin assistant" (or whatever it was that she did, I can't really remember) because her stature as a professional actor far surpassed the role that the script tried to show her as. I immediately became suspicious of the character and so the mysteries of the plot weren't as interesting while they were revealed.

I was really disappointed by that aspect of the movie and I thought it would've been more enjoyable if it was a bunch of no-name actors doing it instead.

Reb*ttal for any:

>b-but big names bring in the monies

The production was already taking a gamble with Jim Carrey in a serious role. Until then, he was pretty much just funnyman Jim and I doubt many people thought he could do a role like that.


File: 1498500973118.jpg (129.74 KB, 1200x1200, The Mask.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I am very bad with names, but I always do remember nice memorable people's names, like Jim Carrey, and I happen to not know much about Kirsten Dunst much. She was in Jumanji?
I guess it helps a lot to be blinded by things like that, I was very surprised by that particular part of the movie. I think the message has a lasting impression on me than the entertainment value.
I do like Carrey because I feel like he has went through a character arc as an person for being a very silly type actor and then taking on more existential roles as time went on. But that is just what I see!


Yes, I'm similarly blind to actors as well. I try not to follow actors and directors nor really make an effort to remember their names or anything.

But after you've watched a few of their movies, eventually you'll remember their faces and recognize their name in the opening credits - you simply can't help that when you've watched even just a few of their films - it's just something innate about memories.

For Kirsten specifically though, I recognized her because she's just so cute~!



Just finished watching A Tale of Two Sisters!
It's rare for a horror movie to be both scary and sad at the same time… The way they portrayed mental illness was very interesting.
I liked the soundtrack and although the movie was pretty confusing at first everything fell into place gradually!


File: 1507492776872.jpg (118.67 KB, 800x527, audition-2.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching Odishon.
I think I'll only date boys from now on…


I've watched it today.


File: 1508814360594.jpg (1.54 MB, 1000x1500, nightcrawler-2014-04.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I saw Nightcrawler, a movie about a twisted male Ayaya doing some very reckless and questionable things to get the biggest scoop. Recommended!

I also watched this, I liked a lot.


File: 1508815696771.jpg (63.17 KB, 297x426, HIGH_AND_LOW_JP_.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I saw this Kurosawa movie just a little while ago. It was a very good crime investigation movie. It starts off slowly but gets more and more intense as it goes on.


File: 1509296652205.jpg (9.73 KB, 400x230, Colonel_Nathan_R._Jessup.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

He was right about everything.
Taking him to court was an unprecedented mistake and it only happened because of young Kaffee's ego.

Just finished watching The Thirteenth Floor!
I thought this came out before The Matrix but both movies were actually released the same year! Kind of funny how similar both are… Maybe movies about VR were a thing that year!
With a title like that I expected it to be spookier but I still enjoyed it!

The night is still young so I'll probably follow this up with another movie that'll hopefully be super scary!


File: 1509487071716.png (375.49 KB, 576x324, dark_city_b.png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Second movie for tonight was Dark City!
It was a lot spookier but reminded me of The Matrix again although for different reasons…
I liked it a lot, the ending was a real blast!

I hope all my /nen/frens enjoyed their Halloween whether they watched some spooky movies or not!


Shut it down. Shut it down forever!


That was my favorite line from the movie!
I loved how over the top the whole finale was!


File: 1511385280035.jpg (28.54 KB, 500x294, 17334053732681a032468df055….jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching Cube!
The premise was very interesting but the execution was a bit lacking and the ending was kinda meh but it was still an interesting and enjoyable watch!


Just finished watching The Game!
It was very exciting, probably one of the best thrillers I've ever watched! Rich people spend their money on the weirdest things…




File: 1513888203671.jpg (110.44 KB, 326x400, 12Monkeys.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching 12 Monkeys!
Definitely one of the more interesting movies about time travel I've watched. It really has you questioning yourself whether the plot is actually real or just a delusion.


I watched The Last Jedi. It was somewhat better than the previous installment but I'm not sure if I like it.

I vaguely remember watching it years ago but haven't much recollection of it. I've been wanting to catch up on Terry Gilliam's films especially The Zero Theorem and Brazil - which was modeled after nineteen eighty-four as well as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. I'm also looking forward to next year's release of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote that have been in development hell for a long time.


This was the first Terry Gilliam film I've watched! I like his style! I'll probably watch Brazil next although I think I should watch Total Recall before that since it's been on my backlog forever now…


I really liked that movie, didn't expect the ending.


File: 1514231494418.jpg (26.71 KB, 600x425, kitano-exhibition-4[1].jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

I watched Hanabi because someone I talked with at a bar whilst I was in Japan told me it was their favourite Kitano film in a conversation about films. I thought it was nice and really beautiful and it fits Kitano's nihilitic and static cinematography. The second half reminds me a lot of his other film, Kikujiro. Kids Return is still his best film in my opinion as the angst of youth and hopelessness is captured perfectly with his style. Hanabi feels like it's more of a visual spectacle, it tells the story primarily through its forms and imagery but it's certainly gorgeous in its own right.


Watched Total Recall yesterday!
I was expecting a silly action movie but the story was actually really interesting! It was still pretty silly but you gotta love Arnold's cheesy one liners! Also that theme song is super cool!


I watched Prisoners, very good moobie


i watched some well-received movies from 2017

dunkirk - very nice visuals, a war movie without any gore
mother! - dialogue scenes and the ending felt really uncomfortable to watch, but this was a horror movie so it was sasuga
blade runner 2049 - amazing visuals, cool universe, definitely on par with the original blade runner


I was going to watch the new bladerunner but I couldn't figure out which of the old versions of bladerunner Im supposed to watch since theres so many


I think the definitve version would be the Final Cut release.


File: 1516561133780.jpg (73.88 KB, 635x343, Brazil-Inline.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Just finished watching Brazil!
Seemed like a fairly accurate depiction of contemporary Britain to me!


I really need to muster up the motivation to watch this, I really want to see it but have a lot of difficulty getting myself to.


It's a pretty long movie and it drags on a bit during the middle part but then it picks up the pace again towards the end!
I think you have to be in the right mood to watch a movie like that, it's less about trying to follow the story and more about soaking in the sights and what's presented to you.


File: 1516563404640.png (2.02 MB, 1920x1072, Petal Dance (2013) 00:42:0….png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

i watched petaru dansu. it was a beautiful and meditative film about friendship, suicide and good byes. i also really liked the bluish/greyish color scheme of the movie!


Attempting to download it now, sounds interesting.


Thank you for your insight, I'll keep it in mind and find the appropriate time to enjoy it.


i just saw the new star wars last night, it was pretty fun


File: 1516578036000.webm (1.17 MB, 853x480, standing.webm) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

My favourite parts are when she acts like a tree and also the drawing scene!

I made this webm from an earlier movie by the same director. It's called tokyo.sora, you might like this movie too but it's a bit different from petal dance!!

I think this director really likes skies and clouds!!


File: 1516589808807.png (1.06 MB, 1920x1072, Petal Dance (2013) 00:48:2….png) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

File: 1516720249218.jpg (118.83 KB, 1280x720, sky.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

you could also watch su-ki-da by same director! it has lots and lots of sky and clouds and rain and quiet scenes, but be warned it also has more dr*ma in it.

i just watched tokoy.sora and i enjoyed it! maybe i'll check out that mobie too…


Watched Saya Zamurai, don't really have much to say about it.


File: 1519041108733.jpg (76.79 KB, 1280x720, I drive.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

They aired Drive on TV last night!
Hopefully I'll get to watch the undubbed an uncut version some day.


I think ryan gosling is my favorite actor. Hes so handsome


Just fucking download it, wtf

File: 1521313482512.jpg (95.37 KB, 900x506, 1220360.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

Finished watching Blade Runner yesterday!
It was pretty fun and you can definitely see it's influence on later sci-fi works!
I'll probably hold out on watching the new Blade Runner for now, though.


Just finished watching Eraserhead…


I just saw the new Pacific Rim. It was really goofy and fun to see the robots fight. I wish it didn't have the annoying preteen characters and some of the writing was pretty bad. The final act was really fun and nonstop robot action which was pretty cool!


Watched Goodfellas for the first time in years yesterday. I really like that film.


I decided to watch another David Lynch movie and went with Wild at Heart.
A touching love story in which every character is mentally insane. Remember to fight for your dreams and don't turn away from love!
I think I'll keep watching Lynch films for now, I really like his style!


File: 1522641673566.jpg (162.82 KB, 1920x1040, Eraserhead.1977.INTERNAL.R….jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]


oh wait nm you already watched it


Have you watched Mulholland Drive? It was typical of Lynch and certainly an interesting watch. I've also had Blue Velvet in my backlog for a long time but haven't been watching too many films in a while.


i saw loving vincent a bit sad and boring but very ii ne



File: 1523211709773.jpg (210.93 KB, 1280x688, 3140.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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!


File: 1524932226605.jpg (38.67 KB, 1280x720, 350815000_1280x720.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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!


File: 1526152351710.jpg (26.4 KB, 584x322, inlandempirebuns.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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!


File: 1533266967947.jpg (82.03 KB, 424x600, 90608l.jpg) [ IQDB | SauceNAO ]

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.

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.
