I recently rewatched midsommar and I’ve decided it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen
This pic is so cozy!
NTA but I’d say I’m kinda meh on Midsommar. I liked Hereditary a lot, but “spooky pagan cult” movies are kinda boring imo. A bunch of Swedes living in the forest is about the least scary thing I can imagine. I also thought the characters were pretty forgettable besides rooting for the lead to drop her scrote.

Lol I deleted because I made a dumb typo but you replied before I could fix and repost. Yeah, I didn't find it particularly scary but I did find it entertaining. I really liked the main character and was rooting for her too. Hereditary is much more disturbing. That entire car sequence is something else. The long shot on his face- amazing.

I know what you mean, it's one of my favorite film to rewatch!
On the same topic, does anyone knows some good "day time horror" ? I'm a huge fan of Midsommar and The Wicker Man but I don't really know anything close to it. A lot of movies rely on the dark and the night to make you feel scared and I think it's bold for a movie to go in the opposite direction.

Leonardo Dicaprio will produce and starr in an american production of "Another round" (a 2020 danish film that won the oscar for best international movie) literally why
Did we really get to the point where we remake movies that appeared a year ago? Why DiCaprio anyway? Mads can speak English, why not him lmao
I hate Hollywood

Sadly, not all films listed are actually horror, but you may find something you like.
From my side, I would recommend Funny Games - seen the remake and loved it (if you can say so about a rather unpleasant movie). I think it's mostly the same as original (both directed by Haneke).

yall i just watched silence of the lambs for the first time… this was the scariest scene in the whole movie imo
File: 1619542998423.jpg (68.85 KB, 1280x720, silence-of-the-lambs-clarice-e…)
Agree, all those police scenes are so unsettling
I posted this in the last thread
I was really surprised watching the Silence of the Lambs, it was pink-pilled AF, the real villain in the film was the Male Gaze and buffalo bill was the ultimate embodiment of that gaze
In the near end scene where Clarice has him cornered, he cuts the power and the lights go off, Clarice is effectively blind while bill with the aid of night vision goggles has all the power as he can see her every movement, he see's her fear and he revels in it, bill becomes the personification of the male gaze in flesh, he toys with her and he takes his big very phalic gun and aims it at her hear head but the loud sound of when he COCK's his gun alerts Clarice and due to having sharper shooting experience catches him off guard, and unloads on him and her stray bullets damaging the walls and windows which let's the light shine in, and we see Bill as he lay dying, his appearance and even the sound he's making not resembling a man but rather an insect like creature

I so wanted to love "Promising Young Woman" (2020) and I largely liked it but the way they styled Carrie Mulligan was criminally bad. They kept putting her in these ingenue outfits that age her terribly. Picrel is one of the nicer ones tbh, she looked rough the entire film. Just because she has petite features does not mean you can put her in clothes like that. They did her dirty. Looking up her age will convince you to wear sunscreen and that's all I will say about an otherwise awesome actor
Also what the fuck as that runtime? Every scene is gruelingly long, for no apparent reason. The climax deserves to be dragged out and long, I totally vibe with that, but it felt extra long because the rest of the film also had shots that lingered so it had no temporal emphasis for me. Edit your films down man!

Someone mentioned Piercing in the horror thread and I wanted to bring it up here. It's really overlooked. I adore Mia Wasikowska as an actress. She is so underrated, and great at playing disturbed, complicated, or unhinged women. The "victim is more than she appears"/ "victim turns the tables on her would be abuser/killer" trope is one of my absolute favourites in media.

got around to watching Ride or Die, and while I wish it was as dark as the original manga, which I've been reading, I enjoyed it for what it was. I'm kind of afraid I'll be labeled scrotey for liking it because I've seen people criticize aspects of the movie and its treatment of sexuality, but I enjoyed it as a bi woman
i wish there weren't so many sex scenes but that seems to be really common in media nowadays, I liked the lesbian scene but the other scenes were so uncomfortable, even if they were intended to be that way

I was scrolling through movie site and chosen this one randomly. Turns out it was pretty good. Weird at first and relly fucked up, but very funny and had nice ending.
But I've never heard of it before, and I feel like I'm missing out a lot hidden gems.
Anons, do you have (good) movies that you feel only you have seen?
I had conflicting feelings on the film as well, but what really stayed me with more then anything is that bo burnham is way too tall, I mean he was massive compared to Carrie Mulligan
Made me lose attraction towards to him somewhat

It's painfully unfunny and boring,I don't see why everyone likes these movies,the characters are so annoying and I hated seeing the stupid faces Micheal fox makes
I don't care how iconic are,I hate them.the acting also feels forced
Man you broke my heart anon lol, these are some of my favourite movies ever, especially the first one. I've seen it so many times yet it literally never gets old.>>142447
Can we drop this mentality? It's embarrassing. Just because you personally don't like something doesn't automatically make it moidshit.
Always recommending Heavenly Creatures, as well as Cracks (and maybe Respire if you would like something similar, though I haven't seen that one)… but there is pain and sadness in those. Not as a main component - definitely not as torture porn - but still. So decide for yourself.
Oh and Pin Cushion is a wonderful, but heartbreaking modern fairytale. AFAIR almost all meaningful characters are female (there is maybe a one token boytoy, but he's not very memorable). It's fucking sad tho, especially if you've dealt with bullying, poverty or alienation from others. I loved it a lot, so I mention this movie in case some other anon becomes interested.
Sorry if my post wasn't much help, I mostly watch sad movies. The one fun film with strong female leads that I remember is Kamikaze Girls. It's very campy tho.
File: 1621478156612.jpg (74.15 KB, 600x418, 640328740328432.jpg)
Thanks anon, I'll check all of these out! Pin Cushion sounds a bit like Pan's Labyrinth in that it's about the characters developing a fantasy world to escape the pain of reality. I've seen Kamikaze Girls before but it's been years so I'm glad you reminded me of it. Would probably be liking watching it for the first time again now. I don't mind the occasional sad movie but sometimes it can feel like women-centric films just focus on how much shit we have to deal with minus any subsequent relief or triumph, which can get exhausting. I see enough of that in the real world. But I'd still rather watch movies that show women facing difficult things than anything that further glorifies men.
BTTF1 was my favorite movie when I was around nine or ten. There are obviously cringey things about it, but the special effects are good for the time and the score is awesome. Also Michael J Fox was actually kind of cute when he was young (imo at least.)
It is not moidshit, and if you dislike it, you're actually in the minority because most normies are at least amicable towards it. Stop acting like every other woman on Earth has the exact same opinions as you, Narcissist-chan.
That said, The Secret to my Success is awful, and Ferris Bueller is hard to watch because Ferris is legitimately a horrible human being and I hate that we're supposed to root for him.>>142765
Well, I think Lorraine misidentified
her affection for Marty as romantic. I think even across timelines, family members would feel connections to each other, and she felt naturally caring towards him for that reason. Also, she didn't fall in love with George because she took care of him necessarily, I think that was just an opportunity for them to get to know each other and realize they were compatible. Also, did everybody just collectively forget about the scene where she kisses Marty and immediately gets grossed out?
Also, Back to the Future benefitted from the fact that people before the internet didn't over-analyze the hell out of things and were more willing to suspend their disbelief. Doc Brown is basically the same age visually despite like thirty years passing, and they literally never explain how Doc and Marty met, but none of that matters because it isn't what the movie is about.

Kubrick and Spielberg was a horrible combo. This movie was trying to do Spielberg childlike mystical whimsy but Kubrick’s creeping existential horror and bizarre atmosphere kept leaking through.
Plus that face melting scene made me shit a fucking Tricerotops. Spoiler for nightmare fuel.

I like cyberpunk worlds and aesthetic (like picrelated, I love this colour scheme), can anyone recommend me some movies, cartoons or TV shows?
I watched bladerunner2049, it wasn't honestly as good as I expected it to be for such a long and high rates movie, but nevertheless I still loved the way the world looked like, and basically everything up until MC meets a supposed "father", but it's still not a movie to throw 10/10 at.
However, I loved Cloud Atlas's SONMI story part a lot, no matter how a bit basic it can be.
Don't think I ever really watched any cyberpunk movies, used to read the books a lot tho.

Does anyone else here actually enjoy American Beauty? I know the tide has turned against it because of the Kevin Spacey stuff and people thinking it's pretentious but to me it holds up.
Isn't the couch scene pretty misogynist? Having said that, I enjoyed the movie despite that. I wanna see it again with what >>144631
said in mind. I have such weird, melancholy nostalgia for the late nineties, before 9/11 happened and everything changed.
no. i thought i liked it a lot in high school but rewatched it in college and absolutely hated it. i hate all that it stands for, such a shallow film and commentary on "america"
after watching some todd solondz films, american beauty means nothing to me.

Brilliant ost and beautiful scrotes. I understand why some people think it's a pretentious movie though.
Another movie that has a nice ost + shots and gives me huge nostalgia is the Virgin Suicides
>>142457>Precisely none of it was scary. The only disturbing part was the sex scene and even that was cringy and uncomfortable.
You didn't find the cliff scene disturbing? That's the moment that stuck in my head long after I watched it.
But anyway I definitely prefer movies that are creepy rather than actually scary so it's right up my alley, I think Hereditary is better but it has less rewatch value for me because it scared me more.

Has anybody seen Nomadland? I'm considering going to see it tonight because it's the only movie playing in my cinema by the time I'll going home from therapy. At the same time, it seems like it may be boring and unsufferable at the same time so IDK if I want to subject myself to it.
Scrolling this reviewhttps://www.alternateending.com/2021/04/nomadland-2020.html
doesn't give me especially high hopes tbh

Haven't watched it but the big plot twist of Cruella is the reasons she wants to skin a bunch of puppies for a coat is because her mom was pushed off a cliff by a bunch of dalmatians as a kid.
There, I saved you 30 bucks Premium Access.
Anyway, when do you guys think they'll make Gaston movie where he's a himbo
I thought that was a meme, Jesus Fucking Christ thet shouldn't have even brought it up
The premise of wanting to making a redemption about a woman who wants to skin puppies is very dumb and I don't know who thought it was a good idea
wow…all i can say. also the CGI is atrocious
is there any other reason to watch this movie cause i already downloaded it and it's a 2 hour movie
samefag but I just noticed>by the time I'll going home from therapy
top kek please then, no. Idk just watch some wholesome shit like uchuu patrol luluco or Derry Girls if you're not a weeb or smth
Haha, by the time I saw your replies, I have already seen the movie! >would have been mad if I actually paid money to watch it ngl.
Luckily that's not a concern to me as I have a monthly subscription. The more movies I see, the less money I waste. The cinemas have been open for 4 days here and I've already seen 3 films. >top kek please then, no. Idk just watch some wholesome shit like uchuu patrol luluco or Derry Girls if you're not a weeb or smth
OMG thank you for being so caring, anon. I was late and didn't catch the first 5 or 10 minutes. IDK if that helped (maybe there was something infuriating in them?), but I ended up liking the movie. Shocking, as I usually hate any road trip movies and I expected Nomadland to be peak schmaltzy, emotionally manipulative cinema. The movie didn't feel sappy or like poverty porn to me. It was nice seeing a story about alienated elders with actors that actually looked the part. Some scenes made me cry a bit, but in a healthy way that made me feel more connected to myself and to humanity at large. Also, I got a healthy kek out of realization that Nomadland has just introduced local normies to two great American concepts: >roadside attractions in the form of trashy lifesize dinosaurs in the middle of bumfack nowhere>Derek Humphry's Final Exit JFC, it was NOT written by Dr Kevorkian as the movie claims! What a complete fact-checking fail
I would cautiously suggest giving the movie a chance in case of boredom or if anything about it seems appealing.

Watched Promising Young Woman again last night, still really liked it. It's by no means a perfect movie but a great first full-length feature. And I know it's wrong but this sequence kills me, ugh
This is not true lmao did no one here watch it even for morbid curiosity??? She doesn't want to kill any dogs in it or even hate dogs, they actually even gave her a dog companion, she just hates the lady who killed her mother and wants to take revenge on her.
That scene is pretty awful tbh but the whole film gives you the impression that it's purposefuly Camp.>>145610
Honestly, the movie was average-ish but the fashion is pretty on point, I don't get why everyone is just so against the idea of Cruella getting a redemption arc, like killing dogs is not even close to the worst thing a Disney villain has ever done??
Yeah, I remember I was looking forward for this movie when it's trailer came out.
Thank you for sharing this screenshot, anon! It looks aesthetically pleasing because of its colour scheme, I seem to be really into neon lately.
Also, even weirder is that Bo here reminded me of my nice, wholesome ex from the times when I was a teen - brought smile to my face, hope he is having a good life.

There is something about this movie that I love so much. I have never seen a single Ryan Gosling other than this movie and I have watched it about 7-8 times. I think it's really impressive how they create comedy without demeaning Lars or his issues and I relate to him a lot. I find it a very comfy movie to watch even if it leaves me a little choked up!

What are your guilty pleasure movies, anons? I enjoy watching melodramatic romantic movies with an emphasis on the visuals over the story. Movies like Dirty Dancing 2, Phantom of the Opera and Great Gatsby (Baz Luhrmann's version). Stoker is another go to, the cinematography is mesmerizing

The twilight movies, guilty because they're so objectively shit and cringy but I still rewatch them like two times every year
File: 1622749595372.jpg (131.38 KB, 950x633, 473298047320432234.jpg)
Two ends of the spectrum: Dumb himbo action movies like Predator, 300, Mortal Kombat. Then also flamboyant period films. They're not all bad, but some can be very melodramatic and overly focused on romance over meaningful content like The Dutchess, Belle, Far from the Madding Crowd.
Any chick flick. Mean Girls, Clueless, Heathers, shit like that.
I only really watch these when I'm drunk but fuck if movies like that aren't the most fun I've ever had watching something.
a little late, but i thought it gave a good look at how stuffy the marriage situation was. but just that one scene captured the stuffiness well. it's like that closed in feeling when you see all the cookie cutter houses in the beginning of edward scissorhands. maybe i just don't feel the same sense of nostalgia. the fashion, yes. the regular home burb life spent away from friends, nah. that life felt bleak. idk i guess it is better than the 24/7 state of easily accessible drama we're living in now hue>>144718

however, stoker is well beyond a guilty pleasure for me. it is such a great pleasure. same with baz luhrmann. all of his stuff is guilty inducing but it's so good i can't help but not feel shameless about it
Twilight is comfy tbh I like watching it when it's gloomy and rainy outside. >>146775

These are embarassing now!? That sucks. In any case, it's the same for me anon. I literally saw the first PotC in theaters 7 times. I was absolutely gaga over Johnny Depp, plus I loved pirates and it was awesome getting to see a big budget movie about them. I agree that not everything needs to be serious and gritty, and at least it had a moderately creative plot and characters rather than all this tired capeshit coming out lately. It's too bad about Johnny's personal life, he really did used to be a talented actor and a babe but he's taken a nosedive since. I love a lot of straightforward adventure films from back in the day like the Count of Monte Cristo, Man in the Iron Mask, all the Indiana Jones movies. They weren't brilliant but they were genuine and fun in a way most blockbusters these days refuse to be. Always have to be ironic and make fun of themselves, as if being embarassed of their own campiness will head off audiences doing it. In the end they just come across more monotonous and lack heart.

I'm not really ashamed of anything I like to watch, but this one, I suspect, not everyone would understand?.. Like, it's just some old cheesy fantasy film. I loved it as a child and recently rewatched it on tv, and honestly I don't think it looks that bad. I really like the cast, characters and overall atmosphere. The characters are not that complicated though, more like in fairy tales, but I don't mind it. My favorite ones were Merlin and Mordred. Mordred is freaking sexy.
Ooh, I remembered one film that I would call my guilty pleasure: The 10th Kingdom. Also loved it as a child, and now it's kinda different… but still fun and nostalgic.

This movie was such a wild fucking ride. I went into it knowing nothing and high as fuck, which probably made it even better, honestly. I highly recommend it to stoner anons, but don’t read anything about it before you watch for extra enjoyment.

God I had the biggest crush on the Wolf as a little girl. He's a complete dork but I wanted to pet him kek. The trolls are still funny to me. My favorite (almost) 90s fantasy movie is Legend. Great soundtrack, the sparkliest set in history and sexy devil Tim Curry.

I watched The Craft Legacy today and lemme tell you what a waste of time.
Nothing happens for most of the time and the conflict between the girls at the very end feels so forced. Also the way they talk to each other, feels like the writer got all the dialogue from tumblr.
The girls ignore the protagonist, who is nancy's daughter because suposedly she caused the death of a kid and one of the girls talk about "using powers responsibly" like shut the fuck up, you cast a spell on the guy to change his personality completely, the fuck responsibly means. Go burn something or whatever. I hate it so much. Only good thing about it was Fairuza Balk and the Mulder guy but holy shit he's so old

I love Manchester By The Sea. The scene where he and his wife bump into each other on the street absolutely destroys me. I just love movies that can make me cry from start to finish like that. Mumblecore, I love you so.
It was entertaining but to me it was just the best lifetime movie i ever saw, in fact, I'm positive I've watched at least 5 lifetime movies with the same plot.
It was predictable but i liked it.

Only movie with a female protag that came to mind is Wild with Reese Withherspoon, where she goes on a hike to reclaim control over her life. Warning for a pretty squicky toenail removal scene. Also it's more of straight up about facing trauma than being contemplative iirc.

I would just like to express how much I love the art direction of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. It's so nostalgic for me, very experimental and bold colors throughout the film. The movies themselves are extremely campy, and I love them for that as well. We do not forget Seal's iconic Kiss From A Rose.
Batman 1989 and Batman Returns are also fantastic, but not as memorable. Prince's contributing part of the soundtrack stood out more, including the photo set of him dressed up as half Joker, half Batman.
There's a couple films that have a similar vibe, such as the Super Mario Bros Movie, All Dogs Go To Heaven, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films from the early 90s.
It was okay, not as bad as people said. I had fun watching it even though it was predictable.>>147081
Not even worth watching for keks ugh.

Have you seen A Ghost Story? Maybe I was in a weird place but it crippled me for days.

Disney has lost its touch, they haven't made a good animated movie since Coco–and if you needed a reminder, that came out in 2017. Even their live actions have not been good at all, but at least those for the most part have been understood to be money grabs baiting people in with nostalgia.
Toy Story 4 was just OK and only because I cared about Bo Peep. Frozen II was contrived and really not great. Ralph Breaks the Internet was bad. Soul was weird. The Incredibles 2 was lame. Onward was OK.
Just watched Raya and it's a stupid, poorly paced mess with a poor message. The dragon looks like a kin of Elsa and so many characters are thrown in that one can't care about any of them.
Nothing is made well anymore, and the only striking things are the visuals. /Didneysperg

Die Wand (2012)
"A woman inexplicably finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall suddenly surrounds the countryside. Accompanied by her loyal dog Lynx, she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature."

I rewatched Midsommar last night and it got so much creepier than the 1st time. You noticed so many details you missed or didn’t understand the 1st time you watched it. Maybe it’s because I went into the movie without knowing what it was about, but it felt like I was watching a different movie kek

Omg go watch Scare Me (2020)
It's horror-comedy with Stormfront and Collegehumour guy. Didn't think I'd love it so much. Their performances are stellar.

Here to report on Cruella! It was super fun to watch and the costume design is top notch. Emma Stone is a goddess and her Cruella expressions are killer. Emma Thompson's character is a bitch that you can't help but giggle at when she tears people down. There are some cheesy moments scattered throughout the movie which reminds you that this is a Disney movie for kids, but overall I would recommend it.>Also, TRAAAIINS
I really liked Portrait of a lady on fire,(though I might be biased bc if a film has lesbians in it I almost always enjoy it more), it's set on some remote island during the 1800s and is mostly a love story. I remember liking Mary Antoinette with kirsten dunst (granted I was high while watching it) but its kind of quirky and has got a lot of anachronistic details (like, converse with ball gowns levels of anachronism lol) so if strict historical realism is your thing this might be a skip. I also think I enjoyed the Duchess back when I saw it as a teenager but all I really remember was Keira Knightley looking pretty in the costumes.
Other than those and the ones you already mentioned like pride and prejudice and emma, I'm not sure I've seen any other good movies set in England during that time period. For some reason Titanic came to mind before anything else (even though that's technically after 1900) since the style and general vibe still seems very Victorian England, but everyone's seen Titanic so it's not a very good suggestion lol.
But if you're open to ones set in asia there's a great Korean period drama called the Handmaiden that I highly recommend. Just be forewarned that it's very gay and very R rated.

Just a head's up, "Keira Knightley looking pretty" is about the entirety of this movie. It's frustrating because the real woman it was based on (Georgiana Cavendish) was a badass who was a style icon, socialite, supporter of science and literature, big political activist and poet/writer. There was a great amount of raw material to work with but the movie spends about 2 minutes on her meaningful accomplishments then shunts it away in favor of focusing on a hurried romantic affair, love triangle and having her make stupid, overly emotional choices regarding her kids which is out of character after how much she's shown to care for them. Her gross rapist husband is shown to have more development and emotional growth by the end. Focusing too much on "romance" isn't really out of character for period dramas, but again, choosing such a cool woman and then portraying her in a shallow, dismissive way is really unfortunate. It is nice to look at, so if you want something banal but attractive go for it, but wanted to warn anons. I agree Portrait of a Lady and Handmaiden are both great though.
The 2005 BBC adaptation of Bleak House with Gillian Anderson is good, and if you want something fun but not too serious there's From Hell. It's about Jack the Ripper and features Johnny back when he was still hot and doing interesting roles.

Barry Lyndon is totally worth a watch too. It's considered to have some of the most gorgeous cinematography using natural lighting and was shot to look like paintings. It's a picaresque, so the main character is an antihero who's kind of a terrible person but it's fascinating to watch his life in a train wreck sort of way.

Would Edwardian Era be okay, even if it's a bit later than your requirements? If yes, I highly recommend Real Life of Angel Deverell aka Angel (2007). I fucking love this movie, it'd criminally underrated. Especially watch if you want a sympathetic portrayal of an authorcow, like melodramas and Michael Fassbender.
Sidenote but if you like the story - it's based on a novel that goes in a different place halfway through and has a much more toned down ending.

another shot from the film
>>147715>The "white woman's instagram" song was also super cringy, really pointless and made it clear he hasn't been on instagram since like 2014…
I wanted to understand what was the point he was trying to make? It kind of felt to me like 'misogyny but woke because it's a WHITE woman', but then the part about dead family or sthg felt kind of heartfelt and compassionate. IDK
I enjoyed the special but it was the only one of his that I've seen, so yeah. How does it compare? Also I felt kind of uncomfortable because all the time I had this thought 'this is what onision thinks he is doing', but that's not Bo's fault lmfao. I think Onion partially ruined that kind of comedy for me>"Man just get the fuck off Twitter and go to therapy, let's see you TRY to heal and put in the work to be a functional human, instead of watching you spiraling in this self-indulgent self-destructive career you could walk away from at any time"
Didn't he imply going to therapy for 5 years? He certainely mentioned taking the time to work out his anxiety issues over going on stage
I think he looks horrible, compared to what he was before…
And overall he seems very pretentious now. Not a fan of this era of his.
>misogyny but woke because it's a WHITE woman
Idk if he's gotten more good-boy-woke or if I'm just noticing it now but yeesh, it was weird how much he mentioned being white as like a shorthand for being problematic
was weird. I thought the sockpuppet song was going somewhere based about wokescolds, but it kind of fizzled into nothing.
>Didn't he imply going to therapy for 5 years?
I'd have to rewatch to make sure, but my impression was he was "working on himself" after he quit stage performing… I don't remember him mentioning therapy or meds specifically, and he definitely wasn't getting help during the filming of the special. You can just see the depressive hermit aura building throughout. >>147738
>he looks great
skinnyfat pewdiepie lookalikes your type? lol. He's not an ugly dude but it's obvious he was neglecting himself. Personally I'm always grossed out by the pubey overgrown beard on anyone, it just screams breakup or breakdown.
I'm glad the half-naked parts of the special were mostly for comic effect so at least he's self aware.
It was really uncomfortable to watch in various places, and I wasn't always sure how intentional it was. There also were quite a few times when I wondered how authentic it was, but I guess that's the point or something.
The "White Woman's Instagram" song I hoped would take a proper left turn after the heartfelt comment part, but it just went back?
He also really needs a shave and a haircut. He's not the most good lucking guy in the first place, and the beard is not helping.
I loved this movie (miniseries?) Queen Mab and the Lady of the Lake were amazing. >>147715
I really liked “Welcome to the Internet” and “Put your hands up”.
“Welcome to the internet” describes the internet perfectly right down to the weird ass circus theme.
White Womans Instagram was so misogynistic it made me wanna throw up.>>147738
lol he looks like an old exboyfriend of mine when hes all underweight depressed and shaggy looking. It was weird and freaky how similar they look.
Idk I just feel like the whole thing tried to start out with more of a political message then descended into madness. Which I’m low key here for.
For the record I’ve never been a Bo Burnham fan. I always thought he was kinda a hack. But kinda think he’s alright now. Definitely needs therapy tho

I don't get the White Woman Instagram. Why is he mocking women who just take innocent photos of stuff they like? It really feels like 'female interests are inherently dumb, females should stay quiet and not talk about what they like'.
Expected better from you, Bo.

Airplane is considered good right? I didn’t enjoy at all but honestly sometimes I am stupidly contrarian so I’m curious of anon’s opinion
Fucking WHO CARES.
If men can boast about liking trash-tier 'hobbies' like the embodiments of ego-pandering (superheroes) or the ultimate form of passive consumption (videogames), dogs, lattes, and socks are basically godtier interests.
Fuck that shit. Don't give into the patriarchal machine of making us hate ourselves. if you wanna be basic, it's still less cringe than male mediocrity.

>>148208>It really feels like 'female interests are inherently dumb, females should stay quiet and not talk about what they like'.
Lol come on, that's a bit much. I truly believe you're missing the intended joke. The entire special is mocking certain social media trends, and White Woman's Instagram is just poking fun at the extremely common phenomenon of 'comfy' Instagram pages filled with 'trendy' content, usually curated by a white woman. I didn't interpret it as misogynistic at all; it's the only song from the special with entirely wholesome humour to it, and with a section that's clearly intended to be played straight for emotion (the ode to her mom, which has no joking lyrics picrel), left me with the impression of it being a light-hearted jab at the more basic(and sometimes personal) side of social media. >>148232
is right. I think any of you here who are genuinely offended by a song joking that women like avocados, latte art and romance are being overly-sensitive, or are insecure about liking those things in the first place.
>>148211>implying porn, soccer or craft beer qualify as interests
Hey, neck yourself the next time you wanna write something like that. Or go post at 4chan, they will like you much more there.>>148325>>148351>It annoys me that brainlet tier scrotes just like the song because hating white women has become a proxy for general misogyny. saying you hate women makes you a misogynist but saying you hate white women makes you woke.
My thoughts exactly. I think the song was a confused mess. If it was meant to be heartfelt in the end, it either should have ended on the mom part or the final chorus should be changed to something positive and not mocking. Otherwise, it really was not clear what the fuck Bo's angle was. The problem didn't really exist in other segments of Inside. I get the song MAYBE was intended to be an affectionate parody, but because a man is singing it and singling out women for being white, it feels more like a typical scrote attack.
Ayrt and >there's something to be discussed (not here) about how white women are increasingly being used as the dumping ground for misogynistic sentiment.
I do agree with you on that point
File: 1623923178877.jpg (59.24 KB, 339x550, Viy 1967 Vij movie poster.jpg)
I watched the Soviet horror movie Viy after seeing a funny gif in the gif thread. Anyone seen it and wanna discuss it?https://tubitv.com/movies/506587/viy
I'm confused…was the witch young and old? If she was old that man couldn't have been her father, unless he was supernatural too. She was powerful enough to summon demons so why couldn't she stop the mc from beating her to death?
This character was allegedly based on a cousin of Gogol's grandmother that was believed to be a witch. She lived somewhere near Kyiv and there was a legend that old witches could turn into young girls. I suspect it must be common because something like that was also in Grimms' fairy tales? So, Gogol's relative was suspected to transform into a young girl too. I believe there's a theory that pannochka is old and her father might be a warlock and is even older but makes himself look younger. It's also possible that he knew that Khoma was her murderer and he planned all that to get him killed.
I think her not being able to stop him has to do with his praying. In the church, he manages to protect himself, so I guess there must be a way to defeat evil forces.
