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?

 No.2828

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.

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.

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.

I watched Arrival (2016) and Hacksaw Ridge.

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.

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!

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.

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!

 No.24579

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.

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.
>>25317
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 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!

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."

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 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.

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?

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.

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!
