If this can teach us anything is to always trust your instincts, never fall for a scrote's bullshit no matter how confident he is in it. She knew the bears were dangerous and he ignored it. It was close to the season when they need to hibernate so they have a strong need to feed and get as fat as possible before that. There was a lack of salmon that year, so the bear that attacked them was probably desperate and hungry. The moid knew all this and still stayed, must be some suicidal death drive there among all the alpha posturing.

I watched the World of Kanako yesterday and I am genuinely appalled by the fact that it has decent reviews. I expected at least one thing to enjoy but just came out with nothing but disgust and misery. I cannot emphasize enough how this is perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen in my entire life; the editing is like someone with ADHD did a line of coke and then went to the editing room, the pacing is atrocious, the two halves of the story never intersected so they were meaningless, the story itself was somehow simultaneously barren and cluttered, and this movie is just two hours, two entire HOURS of women being abused. There's so much rape, abuse/beating of women, incest, pedophilia, etc. just for the shock value. It's cartoonishly evil torture porn: the movie. It wants to be Oldboy and a bunch of other shit all at once and fails in every regard. There is no weight to anything happening in the movie because nothing has stakes and you never get to process anything that happens because the main character just goes off beating and yelling at and assaulting a woman every 5 minutes. I consider myself to have a strong stomach and an interest in tasteful brutal media but this was all so senseless, I could only imagine the lowest common denominator male could like this (but a lot of women seem to like it too?) Absolutely baffling.

Just got back from watching the Poor Things and I think I'd rate it a solid 2/5 at best. Spoilers:
Stunning visuals (reminded me of paintings by Hieronymus Bosch), but the story and pacing itself were awful. Not sure if I'm missing something, but I hated how all of the sex/nudity scenes felt like they were made by men for men, all the while reviews rave about it being packed with feminist and liberating messages.
Yes of course this infant brained woman will experience sexual pleasure for the first time by showing food inside of her vagina and making obvious moaning sounds. Yes of course the shots of her getting fucked and humiliated by ugly men were neccessary. Yes of course people were only interested in her because she was hot and had the mind of a child and some were even rewarded for it in the end.
I did like how the movie outright says that prostitution is harmful to the spirit and I did enjoy how the madam of the house ouright states that some men love the fact that the women don't enjoy it. But other than that nothing is actually done about it. Sure she has a scene or two were she says the women should have a choice, but literally nothing happens and the black woman is punished for agreeing (by being orally raped by a decrepit man). And the fact that the director made her a whore in order to showcase the horrible nature of people (read: men) is so lazy and porn-brained due to the way the scenes were shot.
Other anons in the celebricows thread nailed it by bringing up the Born Sexy Yesterday trope.
Also were we really expected to believe it was a decent ending? They made the other infant brained woman a dog/slave (she's mostly seen playing ball and at the end is the only one who fetches things), which reduces the weight of the scene where she is devastated after learning about the poor and dying kids below them.(learn2usespoilers)

No. 349598

Sorry about the typos, hands are still freezing and I was annoyed that I spent my time on such a thing.
Also the accents threw me off, some of the actors kept dropping theirs. Mostly Mark Ruffalo when he had to be more emotional, not to mention the black american guy who felt completely out of place.
The sound mixing was lacking as well, felt like the movie would have benefitted from having encoded subtitles.

Has anyone seen the new mean girls movie because I hate the lyric changes in the sexy song they are so pointless. the song is supposed to be a satire of modern 2010 era feminism right. Like the “I love lesbians they’re so sexy!” type of feminism. Or just generally that type of feminism that’s about uplifting women “because they’re so hot!” And the line about dressing up as a “sexy Rosa parks!” Is in there to demonstrate how stupid that mindset is because like clearly it’s dumb to sexualize rosa parks. They also change a line from “I expect to run the world in shoes I cannot walk on” to “watch me as I run the world in shoes I cannot walk in” which is just the most surface level useless lyric change that they made to get feminism points and now all the girls on tiktok are like “omg my Roman Empire is this lyric change in the new mean girls ” and no one I know in real life would get it either I can only post this here.(emoji)

>but the focus on the way her narcissism functions is really interesting

Could you elaborate? I'm really intrigued.

No. 349855

It's pretty much what the film is all about. Instead of portraying just a basic messy B cluster being a shitty person and making impulsive decisions, it gave some more space for psychological insight or to see narcissism as something more abstract - the desperation, competitiveness, need (but also fear of) love and validation, enabled by other narcissists in her environment and in particular how self-destructive her behaviour is (the real sickness she is suffering from). But no matter what happens, even when she seems like a new person who can intellectually describe her faults, she never truly learns - her narcissism just adapts. Everything is always justified in the end. I found it quite insightful but curious what others think.

I should also add that it's pretty hilarious too. Not too heavy.

No. 350236

I saw it in theaters yesterday and i REALLY didn't like it. I never saw the stage musical but I loved the original Mean Girls for years and the new musical film adaptation was just super lame comparitively. I know musicals aren't known for subtlety but it was so dumbed down too. For example: In the OG film, the "Too gay to function" page from the burn book is read by Janis and Damien in the hall during the riot. In the 2024 film, Damien and Janis read it also, and then Damien says aloud, "Only Cady could have written that!" Like holy shit, duh. The entire scene for 'Sexy' was super obnoxious. It's insane how sanitized some parts of the movie are (no more dreaded R slur and no more D slur), then they have 2024 Karen literally spanking a girl whose twerking, flashing her underwear/bouncing up and down while emphasizing her chest, and the coach mentioning choking in sex ed. It was a gross scene, I didn't know the lyrics we're changed but that makes it even more gross. Events from the original film are shuffled out of order. Idk if that's the same as in the play, but it makes me sperg because certain scenes make less sense. Lindsay Lohan's cameo felt really out of place. Social media montages were used in lieu of the scenes where characters just spoke to the camera in the original. There's literally a snapchat video that appears for a second where the caption is like "tfw the Plastics are gone" and i physically cringed. I'm a zoomer, a year younger than Renee Rapp, but it made me feel especially old cause my theater was full of middle school-highschool aged kids reacting to everything like it was the first time.

Jane Campion makes good films and I think The Power of The Dog and Bright Star (from what I remember…It's been a very long time) are fine for anon's criteria. In The Cut and Holy Smoke for example would not be good choices for her though? Isn't there so much sex in them and not even to mention The Piano?

Speaking of The Piano, I love that film, it was so perverse. I don't even know if I should say '"but" it was so perverse', honestly it has to be part of the twisted charm somehow. Shaking my head and saying "oh man!" and "this guy!" so people don't think I condone it. I'll never watch Poor Things but the way nonas here and other reviewers online talk about it and argue for/against its "feminist" messages, it makes me think of the small-scale discourse around The Piano's feminist messages (if they exist).

That wasn't me moron. And you can't make any defense as to why such scenes needed to be in there in the first place.

No. 351986

Ntayrt but imo it's this movie combined with the weird shots of children's bodies in the director's other movie (Killing of a sacred deer) that makes him come across as a pedo. There's especially no need to justify the latter because there are other ways to get the point across without sexualizing it. Also in the round table video Emma Stone mentioned that the director and herself watched videos of real toddlers to get the character's movement right…idk the fact that he needed to get inspiration from that, plus with everything else about him is extremely suspicious.

No. 351994

When does he glorify pedophilia though. The people who lust after Bella when she’s a “child” get their comeuppance. I haven’t seen any of you respond to that. The man who first takes her away and tries to control her gets put in a mental institution after she throws away all his money, all the men she sleeps with are categorized as revolting subhumans, and her former husband gets lobotomized and turned into a goat. So how does any of that glorify pedophilia? Do you also think the book Lolita glorifies pedophilia?

No. 352008

I watched the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo because I've seen it recommended many times and I could not believe it. It has graphic violent disgusting rape scenes that could have either not existed or could've simply been heavily implied. Story wise, the girl had enough of an excuse to do what she did without getting violently raped. But ignoring that, they chose to make the scenes way too graphic with her crying screaming squirming and struggling. I had to skip that shit.
And then later one there's a graphic consensual sex scene between the 23 year old girl and the main character who's old enough to be her dad. Absolutely unnecessary plot wise, both the sex and the relationship. It felt very weird and disgusting.
And then there's the other part of the movie about another girl who was being raped by her serial killer/rapist father, then by her brother after he died, and the brother went on to torture kill rape women in his sex dungeon.

If this isn't a rape fetish movie I don't know what it is. I cannot believe people actually praise this shit.

I'm sorry but you absolutely do not need to show someone fucking a legal toddler to say "pedophilia is bad guys!". The film is so anti pedo it became a pedo wet dream. You really think a man is going to see this and feel sorry for and relate to the hot young sex crazed woman? Or do you think he's gonna relate the moids living out their sexual fantasies?

First of all, I never said the film glorified pedophilia. I said it was a degenerate film directed by a man who wanks to cp and I stand behind that.
What about the scene where she has sex in front of children that had to be censored in the UK?
And you seem to think that pro pedophilia means that there has to be some blatant pedophilic scene. It's about desensitization. Hollywood has been trying to push pedo stuff for a long ass time. Look at brook shields and Natalie Portman in Leon the professional.
And funny you bring up Lolita the book, not the terrible noncy film that was made for it in the 90s. It's almost like degenerate directors will highjack sensitive media to push their sick fantasies onto others and use "it generates discussion" as a defense to showcase their degeneracy. You can have nuanced discussion without have such exploitative scenes in it, yet men always seem gung-ho about shoehorning exploitative sex scenes in everything.(infighting)

This film was a compelling exploration of nature vs nurture. Nature, Kevin clearly had unhealthy tendencies and behavior from a young age. Nurture, Eva was clearly not fit to deal with a difficult child, broke his arm, and shows herself to be rather cold and distant which rubs off on him. Also how could the parents ignore so many red flags and not send Kevin to therapy or the looney bin? As someone who had a mom who hated me from a young age because I was a strange child, not psycho, just strange, the moms behavior in this film struck an unsettling chord with me. It reminded me how many people bring children into the world who shouldn't. shot and edited so well, but an absolutely offputting and emotionally damning film.

(Side note, Ezra Miller clearly never stopped method acting in this role.)

The book is just as much a retarded male fantasy with a 2 edgy 4 u depressive goth nightmare girl who's so skinny people ask her if she's anorexic and is also a promiscuous bisexual woman. The entire book revolves around a woman being horrifically raped and abused by her brother and in the end Lisbeth, the retarded MC, deduces that this woman is an evil bitch for not reporting her abuse to the authorities when… Lisbeth doesn't even report her own assault to the authorities but instead uses the filming of her rapes as ~dark triad stacy~ blackmail.

You don’t need to watch a movie with graphic rape scenes in it, in order to form the opinion that you don’t like it.

Kind of a nitpick, but I don't like the title the girl with a dragon tattoo, in my language they went for a more literal translation and it's just "the men who didn't like women/the men who hated women".

no I agree, "Men Who Hate Women" is a literal translation and fits the story much better too. Lisbeth gets the tattoo pretty late in and the story is more about the mystery and overall anti-woman crimes and the dude than her.
bad people get off to horrifying things, it's not enough to film the act and assume nobody would get off to it. How many times have you seen a rape scene that on paper is meant to be a horrifying moment for the character but instead is filmed in a way that's porny for men? "I Spit on Your Grave" and all other "rape revenge" films on paper could be decent revenge fantasies, but instead you spend most of the movie watching a woman get raped and tormented and maybe ten minutes of her setting up a trap for her tormentors to die off-screen. That's a movie that on paper is "woman takes revenge on her rapists" but is nothing but scrote porn for men who watch rape porn but want to feel better than rapists. You don't have to show rape explicitly for it to be horrifying and so the choices a director or cinematographer takes does shape the results entirely regardless of what the on paper "intent" seems to be.
Not necessarily arguing that TGWTDT was an example of rape filmed bad, but given hollywood's track record of filming rape like porn, you can't blame someone for avoiding all depictions made by men ten years out from a sexual assault lawsuit

I watched this because of you and unfortunately the humor and charm of the lead actress weren't enough to save it for me. I wanted to have a good time, but the male lead is such an asshole it's unbearable. I know he's an asshole on purpose but that doesn't make it any less annoying to listen to him say such foul shit about such a sweet and intelligent woman just because she's naïve and clumsy. The dialogue was really fun, though, and the acting was good. I learned the butler was a pedo who abused his step son and he was later kidnapped by that step son and the sons real father who tortured and killed the butler guy, wild.

I just saw Poor Things and I hate this movie so fucking much. It looks great and the music is good but that's about it. Every time I consume a piece of art I ask myself, what was the intention behind it, why was that a thing that someone made up etc. And with this story and this book (written by a moid of course), what's more behind it except perverted moid fantasies? He would never write this story with a male main character going through the same things and "growing" because of it, because, of course, only a woman can experience the world through getting fucked by men. I hate the false juxtaposition between the prudish evil husband who wants to cut off his wife's clit (the symbol of sexual pleasure) and free sex and fucking with every guy and getting STDs (good uwu self-discovery shit). Like there's nothing else, and like it's implying that if you're opposing the second choice, you must support the first choice. I hate the idea that this movie/book shows how a truly free woman would behave like if she wasn't "chained by societal norms" (that's the retarded take I saw in many reviews). In reality, more and more women now choose celibacy because the less they need men because of socio-economic reasons, the more they can truly see how parasitic men are. Less patriarchy means less engaging with men. More patriarchy means more engaging with men (casual sex included). I hate that the movie doesn't even reflect on the fact that Bella perceived her brothel experience as enriching even though an average prostitute (and the wast majority of prostitutes) has no choice to opt out of it at any given moment like she had. It didn't even show any instance of abuse from johns even thought that's something prostitutes go through normally. I hate the fact that I had to look at naked Emma Stone getting fucked by ugly, fat, disgusting old men twice her age. But of course it's le deep because she talks in autistic manner and the more "independent" she becomes (independence means fucking with men for money instead of fucking with men for free) the less her first fuck-buddy likes her and it's le deep because it shows how evil patriarchy wants to control female sexuality. Scaruffi and YMS loved the movie and that means it's le good.

Just saw Poor Things yesterday, and the more I think about the movie the angrier I get, because it could have been so good if the director wasn't a porn-brained voyeuristic moid. I don't know how Emma Stone produced this and is defending it as if it wasn't glorified born-sexy-yesterday porn. I loved the directing when Emma Stone wasn't being fucked on-screen, but of course we need to divert from the philosophical topics and instead focus on the toddler-like girl having sex. I didn't even have that much of a problem with the male gaze at the beginning since it does a good job of portraying men as the beasts they are, but slowly the movie stops pretending that the sex is used for artistic purposes and becomes gratuitous. Not really sure what to make out of the movie, but I know for sure I wouldn't be as mad is this wasn't being praised as a feminist masterpiece. This movie is gonna age terribly.

No. 355216

In my opinion, my interpretation rather, is that the gratuitous sex is supposed to disgust you and make you feel uncomfortable. I didn't take it as sexual empowerment, I took it as blatant exploitation and felt that's what the movie wanted me to feel. Like I'm not supposed to be celebrating her having all of this weird sex, I'm supposed to be concerned and worried for her and her naïve and childish decisions. The only relationship that felt truly glorified was the one she had with the other sex worker she became close to and ends up living with. All throughout the movie the mc is taken advantage because of her lack of knowledge of the world and exploited right from the womb, by the doctor, by whats his nuts, the lady who owns the brothel, they all emotional and mentally manipulate her into doing what they want while also gaslighting her into thinking she's making her own decisions. It's only at the end where she really does start making her own decisions and sees how horrible the world really is where she is able to find stability and peace in her life. I hate that she marries the doctor, but at least he's a just a submissive loser. My interpretation leaving the film was that it was against the "sexuality is empowerment" bullshit that's being pushed on women and the bizzare ways society tries to justify it's treatment of women.

it looks so bland and uninspired. the trailer reminded me of that oz great and powerful movie that looks nearly identical in CGI. The costumes are going to increase in quantity instead of quality and Ariana is going to go down as the worst Galinda by far. The current elphaba also seems bland, I don't think the director knows how to direct more theatrical performances out of people so here's to hoping she at least sounds nice. She just has zero charisma, how is "Popular" going to land at all when it's her voice singing it? "Thank Goodness" also needs some serious acting chops and punch that I cannot see her voice doing. The original story is going to be doing some serious heavy lifting to make this passable. Considering this movie has been in production since Ari was a little girl, the move to put in a sudden celebrity cash grab feels like they never had faith in the project and are just pushing it out now which is probably why it took like 20 years to make. They seriously were better off releasing a pro-shot of the original cast decades ago, but broadway has always been stupid about that.
Also it's not a good sign when the trailer only shows a very few number of scenes and sets and avoided showing most of the important bits. most of those shots are from a small number of mostly act 1 scenes and unimportant establishing shots that unfortunately make munchkinland look empty as fuck

no bc it's quite literally about men trying to control and destroy a woman, men don't experience that the same way
elphaba being a black woman and glinda being ariana fucking grande sure is a choice. not only due to them being sisters (how?) but ariana's frequent accusations of blackfishing. i bet people will also be asking why the character frequently accused of being a jewish stereotype is the black lady. can't wait to popcorn all the discourse tbh

No. 355254

Lol that's not even remotely true. Your opinion does not "hold just as much weight as one who likes degrading humiliating works of women and girls". The people who hold the most stakes in film production have the most power, like pedowood. If this delusional coping were true there would be equally as many degrading male movies as ones involving women and you'd see an actual organic variety of perspectives in film by women with controversial opinions but we don't for a reason. Stop this handmaiden mass coping over male and handmaiden made dogshit movies.

This same director made Now You See Me 2 and even that looks better than the trailer for Wicked. Even Crazy Rich Asians looks more visually appealing. I don't understand why for the fantasy themed fucking movie that the sets look so flat and lifeless, especially considering they looked okay in the preview photos.

My prediction is that Nolan isn't getting best director because despite Oppenheimer being the long, boring and men centric piece of shit film that all critics find "worthy" of awarding, poor things is just the sexual abuse fantasy every Hollywood exec dreams off and since the Oscars are always rigged, Nolan is winning half of the awards he is nominated for, barbie might win best picture because these days women can only win awards for being women.

meh, comparing Poor Things to Lolita is like comparing a mudcake to a pile of shit because both are brown and look kinda similar if you squint hard enough. (Talking about Lolita the book, not the films which are shit.)

No. 355848

Could Poor Things actually be like a bad adaption of Lolita? Or potentially I suppose kind of like the intent vs execution of Cuties which was supposed to be a cautionary tale and biopic about the horrors of current child-dance routines but actually showed a bunch of children performing disgustingly adult routines with explicit camera shots.
To any non-pedo Cuties reads as absolutely horrific, unfortunately pedophiles had a different reading and it was pretty obvious to some in the former category that that would happen. I'm wondering if there might be a similar disconnect here that some nonnas with the movie. Basically we're probably all not pedos here aside from any lurking troons and see the scenes in the movie as horrifying, but some of us might be more sensitive to pedophile red flags than others and see recognize what they like.

No. 355860

Ntayrt but this discussion reminds me, there's an old movie called Child Bride which was intended to criticize child marriage laws, however the message gets lost because there's a weird scene of a 12 year girl swimming naked that goes on for a while. It adds absolutely nothing to the movie, it could have been removed and the story would have remained the same. Imo the intent doesn't matter anymore when actual child actors are involved in sexual scenes because it's just adding more to the problem of child exploitation. There's plenty of ways directors can criticize it without going that far. With Cuties it's not only focusing on the kid's bodies but also having it go on longer than necessary, like it looks like something out of a music video. I don't understand why this is often the go-to method filmmakers do when trying to do these messages when the result hardly looks any different from noncritical child sexualization. Like can't they think outside the box a bit?

Easy A, though she plays a girl who is willing to further nuke her reputation in order to boost boy's which feels appropriate. she learns better (at least that she shouldn't be known as a slut, not to put herself before men necessarily) but i don't remember liking the general feel of the movie in regards to messaging.

I watched Anyone But You since it’s the Valentine’s Day and it has decent reviews. It’s shit though, the main conflict is idiotic (he gets mad at her for leaving him in the morning in true incel fashion and she obviously overhears him shit talking her) and the tension is so staged. The director’s coomerism is written all over it, so Sydney’s boobs are on display half of the time and the moments where they are supposed to accidentally touch each other are visibly forced. The dialogue is terrible and it’s all painfully unfunny, like your typical 50-something scrote’s lazy idea of humor. 'Rom-com revival' my ass, it’s just riding on nostalgia for the genre while keeping it as mid and uncreative as possible.

imo it takes skill to actually cover dark topics without just badly shoving it in your face to shock you. that plus it's easier to direct actors if you force them to reenact something bad directly or experience real shock instead of acting around it and getting them to react to something that isn't physically there or happening (aka acting). the aftershocks of the event are what actually matter anyways, not the event in the moment as much regardless
it's like this stupid jack the ripper film (based on pedoshit alan moore's comic) from a while back that decided to get "real" reactions out of their actors by shocking them with the real crime photos of the real victims during a police scene they were expected to be shown fake and less graphic pictures. you could tell even the hollywood moids were legitimately disgusted by seeing the butchered victims. it's disgusting but also just supremely lazy and untalented behaviour

A little late but I loved sing 2. This is one of those times I think the second movie is better than the first. I guess the huge colorful metropolis atmosphere and the saturation of the colors plays a part cause honestly, so many live action remakes have that greyish murky atmosphere and I'm suppose to get feel good vibes off of that? the plot is also interesting and keeps me on edge since you want to know how things will turn out in the following scenes. I'm a sucker for feel good movies but there's a limit, since most movies like these fall flat in the end. This one didn't. I just loved how each character built there confidence to fulfill their roles and the story made you feel like a big part of something. I really found it bizzare that I enjoyed it this much.

Tbh I feel like you need to be in specific mood to enjoy Tarkovsky, his movies are like poetry translated to screen.

Andrei Rublev bores me and I think it’s a very specific piece of Russian history, I didn’t like Nostalgia unfortunately, but I was so not in the mood and just wanted to checked it off my list (I’ll have to rewatch it someday).

The first and last time I watched this movie it must've been 2005-06 at my aunt's home. I have no idea why she had this downloaded on a dvd, maybe she thought it was a fun spy movie aimed at little girls with some girl power themes and comedy. She's a rightwing woman so I'll have to ask her one day but I'm almost certain she never checked what was actually the plot by herself. My little brother and I watched the movie unsupervised while she was doing stuff around her flat and I remember being completely mesmerized by the girls and, frankly, very uncomfortable with the plotwist (calling myself repressed doesn't even begin to describe it). Well, even though I was only 5 or 6 years old at that time this movie has been living in a corner of my brain for the past 18 years. I didn't remember the actresses faces so I was very surprised to see Jordana Brewster (I love The Faculty) as the main villain. I did remember the plot and the ending. This movie is a little gem. You can clearly see that the budget was low but the story and the script make up for it. D.E.B.S. is fun and uplifting, the themes it explores are actually interesting and I think that the chemistry between the two main actresses is huge. I was also very surprised by the soundtrack because it has two songs by The Cure and New Order. I highly recommend it and I hope I can stream it in a movienight someday.

A lot of acclaimed film bro-y movies with a predominantly male audience are hit or miss imo. Once you've seen something praised one million billion times you go in with lofty expectations and sometimes come out of it saying "that's it?". I'm hit or miss on horror movies too though.

I think the movies appeal was exactly because it was so restrained. Practically no music with the overall atmosphere of silence so that when the brief gunfights happen, it happens like real life, brief and explosive like being shocked by a volt. It also lends more power to the extremely downbeat ending and reinforces the theme of detachment. I do agree that "bros" overhype it, and I'm almost sure none of them actually like it beyond it being adored by critics and their substitute online father figures, but don't let that take away from the actual merits of the film.

I love it but I love pretty much every Coen Brothers film out there. I enjoyed Tommy Lee Jones's character and Anton was fabulous. Though I don't enjoy it over some of their other films, and I think Fargo's execution of its old man messages was better (the stamp conversation between the husband and wife) plus prefer their movies where Frances McDromand is the star, it still sticks with me and I remember it fondly. The conversation between Tommy and the old man where the old guy basically goes "why are you being nostalgic for simpler times? people were psycho back then too" is one of my favourites of theirs even if it isn't as well executed as the stamps scene mentioned (which granted was also rather on the nose too but it was cute so idc). It felt like a self-aware reminder which was nice for a couple of filmmakers who quite often are nostalgic for other times.
Though I am a little surprised it got the extreme love it did, I think most of it came from people who'd just seen the gas station scene and think the movie is mostly about Anton plus feel like they have to praise it cause it's by the Coens (aka most of the academy so the awards makes sense). It's a good movie imo, but like their other films, isn't for everyone and I think most people who say they love it haven't actually seen it kek. It's also one of the more "Coen" of Coen films if that makes any sense, sure it's not the Big Lebowski level "different", but not total normie tier nor typical film bro stuff. Maybe it's more accessible than I think but I just cannot see the average man sitting down and enjoying it start to finish unless they're a boomer who can at least relate to the old man stuff. Girls yeah, but I see men mostly going apeshit for the film and they're not the best at analogy or hammered home messaging.

You remind me why I get so tired of film bro male film discourse. They have subzero media literacy or rhetorical skills and then they take up the bulk of conversation and make it hard to even discuss the nuances of the film and let women have an opinion. I have a thing for analyzing and favoring villainous male characters and it always drives me crazy the way moids in film discourse interpret them

No. 358586

The way male film bros actually get seduced by the evil men in films, the film is representing a man who is evil but clearly charismatic and instead of recognising his character as a manipulator they become the people who fall for the charisma and play that into their viewing of the film, it's ridiculous.

I think a part of it is how easy it is to watch most films, to consume most types of media, males love giving their opinion even if not educated enough to do so. Piss poor literacy, one film class would do them good, a whole degree would blow their tiny minds.

I watched Easy A when I was around 11-12 and I liked it back then though I bet I would hate it if I rewatched it. At the risk of sounding libfemy but the movie did make me less hostile towards other girls and women. I felt bad for the main character and realized that I should probably stop calling women and girls for whores kek. The movie didn't make me think that sex was totes empowering or some other bullshit but it did make me more hesitant to believe rumors at school and it did make me stop caring about other people's love lives.

I don't know but Donnie is troubled and tortured and kind of a delinquent(never really gets punished for his actions), is always "the smartest person in the room", a girl falls in love with him instantly, and he's secretly the savior of the world or something so my theory is that moids want to be him.

Reading about some chinese movie drama
>YOLO, which takes its name from the acronym for "you only live once" in English, is a drama about a female boxer. It is the highest-grossing movie so far this year and sparked strong debates on social media because of the star's dramatic weight change. Jia Ling, the successful actress and director who also starred in the Chinese 2021 blockbuster "Hi, Mom," first gained 20 kg and then dropped 50 kg for the film. This is not very common among Chinese actors and generated controversy as to what kind of message such an abrupt weight change conveys.
>In recent years, netizens expressed concerns over her health due to her growing weight, but they have also judged and criticized her, even likening her to "a balloon about to explode". That's why many were surprised by her transformation from a once plump and bubbly comedian into a muscular, strong, and healthy physique. Jia has clarified that her film does not center on weight loss or aim to perpetuate body image concerns but rather is about portraying the mental and physical transformation of her character, a jobless, people-pleasing, and socially isolated woman who turns to boxing to enjoy and control her own life, and telling the audience that it's never too late to change and love your life. Jia’s decision to lose weight was also influenced by a desire to break free from typecasting because of her previous body shape.

>The film centers on a reclusive woman, played by Jia, who takes up boxing after feeling disconnected from society.

It does kinda fit the theme of the movie that is genetic experimenting and breeding a superior race of cats while killing off all the unfit ones in various ways but it's not like that scene was necessary… maybe it's there for the shock factor or because it's an adult movie therefore it has to mention sex even if it's about animals.

Olaf was way creepier than I remember. Like another anon said in a different thread he's so molesty. Pardon me it's been awhile since I watched this or read the books, and I don't mind adaptation villainy- I haven't watched the Netflix series sans a few episodes, is he supposed to be coded as a creep? Or is that just Carey Olaf? I'm tempted to give the Netflix series and books another whirl because I love the vibe of ASOUE, the last time I watched series I was with my ex and we broke up before finishing it so I never did

This reminds me that I wish Emily Browning were in more things. The kid who plays Klaus wasn't half bad either, doesn't seem like I see either of them in much nowadays. I know this movie was panned but it has a solid cast and setting. It's one of those adaptions up there with Percy Jackson that while it's not loved by book faithfuls, I enjoy it on its own.

i like both the movie and tv series, but i think i prefer the tv series because Neil patrick harris definitely feels less sleezy as Olaf than Carey, and we get more of the fun side characters. the books also has some fun tidbits in its prose that i think is worth reading even if you know how the story goes imo

Can anyone recommend me movies that are more character driven, less plot driven? Idk if there's like a word to describe this genre but like films where they mostly focus on one character, tends to be more grounded in reality, not very dialogue heavy. Usually kind of a depresso vibe, generally doesn't have a happy ending. Tends to be more of the artsy fartsy variety. The kind that gives the vibe that it would win awards at festivals. You know the type?

Something about the back to back combo of “rose tint my world” contrasted with “I’m going home” (the lyric is even “I see blue skies through the tears” vs “rose tint”… you get me) makes me feel like it’s about the dream being over and now it’s time to wake up because it isn’t truly good for you, and you’re sad about it but it’s also a relief in a strange way. This also accords I think with the fact that both these musicals are from a prior era of gnc culture when men who were extremely gnc or dysphoric and who were genuinely introspective had to reckon with the heartbreaking and very relatable experience of deep existential desires that simply can’t be fulfilled. It actually makes me upset that this experience has been laundered into such fakery feel good delusional gender bullshit in the new gen of trans shit because it’s so human and powerful.

The book is better. The movie fucked up the ending. All of the disgusting things that happened are revealed to be lies made up by a moid to slander the main character.

The moid filmmakers must have disliked the idea of their wank fantasy just being slander kek. I'm so glad it didn't win best picture. Oppenheimer may be a sympathetic portrayal of a man who murdered thousands of innocent people, but at least I can be reasonably confident that the moids involved didn't pick the script because it made their dicks hard.

Finally saw Poor Things. It was so visually beautiful, I loved the freaky architecture like picrel and the outlandish deep-sea creature/vagina shirts she kept wearing paired with incongruous modern boots. Very Camille Paglia.
As for the pedo accusations, I agree with previous anons that the way the sex scenes were shot left something to be desired, but I saw enough seinen anime as a teenager to know the difference between disguised porn and this. It clearly freaked out right wingers by seeming to confirm their jewish pedowood fantasies. Libfems wanted a Barbie movie a sequel and this didn’t hammer home the message that Exploit Women = Bad hard enough. Radfems saw the first sex scene and instantly passed out.

How is it right wing to think it’s pedo? Children can’t consent, having a childs brain means no ability to consent is the logic.

They don’t wait until she’s adult minded in the film. You can present the same thing minus the sex scenes, maybe have one and imply the rest, but no, gotta exploit women and shill it as ‘feminist’.

No. 361921

I think the anons calling it ~literal pedophilia~ are being overly dramatic and taking the movie too literally, but there are plenty of reasons to despise this movie beyond just being icked by the sex scenes. Men have no business attempting to make "feminist" films, especially ones with sex scenes, because they're literally incapable of visually portraying female sexuality in a way that isn't tainted by the male gaze. I imagine what this movie would have been like with a female director and I weep for what could have been. Also, it's extremely obvious that the producers, director, etc chose this script because it was shocking and made their dicks hard, not because the gave a rat's ass about women or women's problems. The way the changed the ending from the book gives the whole game away. Seriously, the twist ending is that the whole story was made up by Bella's scorned ex-husband because he was intensely jealous of her success and wanted to slander her. The author was basically saying that these are the sort of sick fantasies men cook up about women they resent. The filmmakers, as male perverts themselves, clearly took offense to the concept, which is why they changed the ending to not only be the true story, but also for the doctor to abuse another woman in the same way, because they were just so enamored with the idea of domestically abusing baby-brain women. The fact that they changed the ending is the biggest proof to me that this movie stripped all the feminist intentions from the book, and that the men behind it are chauvinist pigs trying to pass themselves off as ~arteests~. I wish the next male who tries to market his wank fantasy as a "feminist" film winds up like David Carradine.

I can't believe I'm even still contributing to this discourse. You are never going to convince me to like this movie, and the people who like it (notably the dogfucker from YMS) will never care about the film's issues. It's okay to like this movie, but stop treating people who don't like they're hysterical pearl-clutching bra-burners.

No. 361926

ayrt, I agree that she has a child's brain in an adult body and couldn't consent. all the male characters who had sex with her while knowing that were in the wrong. some of them like the doctor's assistant got good endings, just like in real life where sometimes people do questionable or downright bad things and get good endings.
the genital mutilation scene, i thought to be about her own personal sexual freedom rather than a political thing. if this had been Barbie, someone would've done a speech about FGM = bad but bella had "matured" from a overgrown child into a selfish and hedonistic woman. she decided to leave her ex-husband/father's house because she wanted to preserve her own pleasure.
overall i interpreted the movie not as an attempted feminist statement or really anything positive, more of a fucked-up surreal reality, a horror movie basically.

It's like being reborn, but she's not a child. It's a new discovery movie. This isn't even a new trope. I think the issues >>361921 are bringing up about the male director and everything being changed is more of the issue. If this was a problem you'd think people would've been in uproar when the book was around. Nope. They are mad because you can't grasp what reanimating a body does in fiction and would instead fight over invisible pedophilia.

You'd think the fucking full frontal of a female baby in A24's High Life would be more of a pedophilia on screen discussion, but in the context the baby was being changed. That doesn't stop the people who are watching that who are pedos having a movie that is recently doing that and is available FREE TO WATCH. The priorities are hilarious. Anons would rather argue over an adult women acting out a reawakening trope rather than actually focus on dangerous showcases of children [or a fake body, idc, it was a full shot and it made me turn off the High Life].

No. 361935

She's not being reborn though, the dead womens mind is not mingled with the childs, it's a completely new person. It's not being reborn, it's just being born.

It's pointing out the absurdity that a transplant equates to age rather than someone coming back to life in general.

>It’s against the law to fuck severe retards
I honestly feel like this is the bigger issue with the movie. Pedos won't get off to it, Emma Stone is an obviously grown woman and they are attracted to a child's body more than her brain. But she is literally acting retarded, and moids are more likely to develop a fetish for handicapped women if they're watching softcore porn of a hypersexual retard with an adult body.

I have really mixed feelings on the movie overall. I hated the gratuitous and unpleasant sex scenes, I don't buy the idea that a child would be that compulsively sexual in the first place, I hated that her partners were almost all revolting and old (if a child is having sexual feelings it will be towards cute young boys ffs). I don't trust the male creators intentions with any of this, even if they did get tantalizingly close to a good point occasionally. But I was entertained throughout, visually it's fascinating, and it had some really funny lines. I keep thinking about it so I think it's inevitable I'll get the urge to rewatch and get mad all over again at the sex scenes while reluctantly enjoying the rest of it.

The author of Poor Things has said in interviews that she thanks Shelly and Frankenstein as inspirations. I think that sums up what the point is. Just opposite sex. I swear the point of the movie went over everyone's head and they are trying way too hard to read into it to force a controversy that isn't even there. Maybe read anything the author has said and it will give clarity. I'm not going to derail about books.


No. 361960

I’m the anime watcher anon, not any of the book discussion anons. I brought up seinen anime as an example of something that portrays underage girls in a way meant for men to jack off to. Things like Dokuro-Chan are not actually sexually explicit and yet when you watch them you can tell it’s porn. It’s masturbation fuel. The plot focuses on which girl the guy is gonna have a sexual tension moment with next and whose boobs are what size. The female characters in seinen are less like characters and more like sex dolls. Poor Things is not like this.

No. 361962

I agree with you that Emma Stone's situation isn't the same. The point is that she isn't dictated by how men think she should act. She's dictated by how she wants to act. How she talks, who she doesn't want to talk to, who she dances with, how she dances, who she fucks, doesn't want to fuck.. The movie isn't about the sex, yet with all praise of everything else from posters, that's all they are focusing on when so much of the rest of the movie is supposedly good. Just sounds like being mad to have something to be mad over and people who read too much in to context. The sex scenes were not even close to porn scenes. It's just sex on film. It's going to be called porn regardless by people with no class.

Not necessarily related to Poor Things (which I'm sick of hearing about at this point) but I think there's a reasonable discussion to be had about how male artists and directors often struggle with portraying sex in a way that doesn't feel voyeuristic and/or porny. I think they suck at leaving their personal sexual taste at the door while creating these depictions. Sex does have utility in storytelling, I just find that modern men get 90% of the knowledge of the visual language of sex from porn and it absolutely shows in how the films they make depict and frame sex.

Sorry for poking the Poor Things hive, I've also watched it after all the controversy I've seen online and think it's a lot of smoke for very little fire. It's a genuinely hilarious movie, although obviously there are very many questionable choices both with presentation and the so-called "feminist and socialist messaging", which I have no idea if it was poking fun at in good or bad spirit. But I'm ever so tired of like women's worldliness and maturity being tied to sexuality in any fiction, but what else would you ever expect of male artists.

Tbh the voice thing is very possible depending on if he method acted and talked like that all filming, even outside of the movie set. His drawl is very specific because it's also so slurred and southern. The pacing of his talking too. It's no different from living in a different country for half a year and having a bit of an accent. Before shooting, he was probably already taking classes lined up by his manager in order to learn how to talk like Elvis, so possibly a year talking like that and practicing. Even his normal speech might've had an accent without meaning to as he slowly transitioned out into his normal talking. I love, love watching actors learn different accents and some British/Australian actors also developed Americanized accents from having to play Americans constantly.

I know that I'm months late but I finally watched Barbie and I cried quite a lot during it. I don't even really know why but it felt really touching. I know that it's only very soft libfem and yet it felt good to finally here something feminist on screen.
I also feel really similar to the Margot Barbie, I really have nothing going for myself, I have no idea what to do with my life. I wish that at the end Kens got punished and she went back to live like she did before, because as sensitive as she turned out to be, real life will be hell after the first excitement wears off. I also wish I had that many female friends, that everything was more pure and much less male-centered and that our world, clothes, houses, everything were more colorful. Even tho they were at a sunny beach in California, everything nevertheless suddenly looked so grey compared to Barbieland.

On a side note I'm so mad this movie didn't win for best sets and costumes because while it was majorly snubbed at the academy awards that is the category it excelled in. Real shame. Barbieland was so gorgeous and colorful and the outfits and styling were magnificent, plus they used lots of practical effects to bring it to life. Even if it is just a mild libfem take it's still a nice movie with a nice message and seeing it the second time on the small screen made me as happy as the first, plus all the women the first time i saw it in a packed theater with their girlfriends, moms, sisters, and some even inviting their bfs or husbands, everyone was laughing, just a wholesome experience

I actually watched it with my little sis and my mom and surprisingly she liked it despite usually being annoyed by anything even remotely pro-women.
Something that struck me was how long it took her to see how male-centered our world is. Ken walked through the streets and buildings for a good 5 minutes and only then she suddenly exclaimed "Oh, it's all just men?!"
Maybe this is the most feminism a movie can show and still be palatable to a broader audience than just very young and already woke women.

No. 363816

My mom who's usually a strange hybrid between lolburtarian and moderate-right with some occasional shitty conservative conspiracy theorism loved the movie and actually appreciated the feminist message which surprised me. Although she's grown more liberal over the years I expected her to complain. It was nice to see older women watching and enjoying it, not complaining about it, and moreover while the message was a little obvious, it wasn't presented in a forceful or weird way, which I think is baby's first step to educating the uneducated about feminism safely without offending the skeptics. I appreciated it for that alone and it was nice enough to turn my brain off and appreciate the jokes and aesthetics. The fact that it plucked at my heartstrings so much surprised me, especially the What Was I Made For scene

I'm honestly pissed that Poor Things swept so many categories at the Oscar's. I'm going to watch it eventually to form my own opinion despite my skepticism of the premise, but I think people are right to cope and seethe over Emma taking best actress from Lily Gladstone and it stealing best costumes and set from Barbie. The entire sweep of Poor things during award season feels bought and paid, not authentic. I know the Oscar's loves weird shit (Everything Everywhere All at once was weird but at least enjoyable with an original concept) but what was Poor Things bringing to the table that made it deserving of a win? Sorry, I don't get it. Born sexy yesterday janked up to 11 doesnt sound Oscar worthy

> It's a genuinely hilarious movie
There wasn’t anything funny about it, I didn’t smile once throughout it and I didn’t find anything amusing. The director is a try hard who tried to be funny and quirky and failed.
The sex scenes were very porny, from the context to the specific positions they put Emma stone in, I don’t care for sex scenes as it is but these ones were awful and particularly unappealing.
The author is a male
Pedos aren’t going to see a late 30s woman as a child, no, but the movie is arguing that children love sex and would be nymphomaniacs if they weren’t prevented from participating in sex. The fact that she has an adult body is to show that the old men “aren’t wrong” for using her sexually, and it’s arguing that mental maturity matters less than physical maturity- something that pedos have always argued (teenage girls are ready to be sexual partners for adult men because their bodies are mature enough, so to pedos it doesn’t matter that they’re kids)
It also presents sex as enlightening (it literally turned her world from black and white to technicolor) and that adult women and children are held back from experiencing this

No. 364084

Yeah, and in the book there are two parts: first is what we see in the movie as woman-baby born sexy yesterday and all that whimsical whoring. It was written as a fiction that a husband wrote about his wife in a form of, supposely, his memoir and, supposedly, her words.
And then the second part: after the husband's death, his wife is writing about this book he made and asked her to read, and also about her real life - that she was raised in abuse, got married to literallywho, wasn't pregnant, didn't even want to commit suicide, that Dafoe's character wasn't an ungodly freak but the opposite - that's why she fled to him (after discovering her first husband's cheating on her), that she wasn't necessarily oh so horny trembling about her future second husband (as he wrote in his fanfic) - well, basically, that all things described in the first part, written by her dead husband, was an obvious absurdity driven most likely by the husband's jealousy, because Bella/Victoria was in love with God
Should I say that prostitution part was just a couple of sentences and there was lot more economics, politics and culture talk than sex?
So yeah, that all was the director's deliberate choice he made (and other people said "uh huh cool") and it is rather telling

not because she was having sex. because she was no longer caged and kept away from reality. the world didn't turn to color when she began masturbating. it was opening her eyes to the way the world can be both fun and horrible.

It's very easy to tell when someone hasn't actually watched a movie. The premise was easy to understand and the main guy who liked Bella even specifically says her doesn't want to have sex with her because it would feel like taking advantage of her. Mark Ruffalo's character, however, is the epitome of a man who doesn't care about Bella aside from looks, regardless of mental state (he wasn't aware of the operation though unlike the other guy who knew and purposely refused bella). The story makes sense when you're not trying to go to lengths to twist it into this attempt to call it pedophilia. I'm really not sure how the premise of the film about female independence could be missed by veiwers when it was spelled out, even in dialog. The sex scenes are supposed to be uncomfortable, that was the point. For a while she was just having sex without even understanding why until she learned she could take it into her own hands at the brothel and realized why men were doing it.

>It seems like most actors would die to play Bond
I think it's not always a guaranteed success for the actor. Back in the old Bond days people would be very critical of everyone's performances and rate them against each other harshly and it would cause a career to suffer if they didn't do well. There's a lot of pressure, plus as the years go by the legacy only increases.
Also the reboot hasn't exactly been that great minus Skyfall imo, and even then I can say I think I prefer the spectacle of the movie over the movie itself and just love Judi Dench. Plus every film it seems they're trying to go bigger and more Hollywood. They also keep adding to the legend of Bond instead of being their own film so any scripts or story ideas might be daunting to a new actor. Plus they're coming off of Daniel Craig's well liked performance and a franchise more or less rebooted around him (or at least a series that wound up being about him).
Plus I think the series fucked itself by confirming that this bond is all the other bonds in Skyfall then actually killing him. Now when they pull the "007 is the moniker not the agent" thing legit (right after disproving this theory as canon in their series up until now) it'll put the newest actor (and the writers) on the backfoot because Daniel Craig is all Bond, and this guy is going to be actually nothing at the start.

And by the way God said he couldn’t have sex with her because he was a eunuch, it sounds like you’re the one who didn’t watch it
That’s why he tried so hard to get her married off to the assistant, because he couldn’t sleep with her himself.

This is going to come to Shudder too. I guess they used AI for the quick break segments, there are 4 images total. Some posters were saying that they could easily go in and edit the images before fully releasing the movie but why would they even do that when they saved money to begin with?

No. 364396

I just hate that so many films about womens character growth emphasize on how having sex changes your world view and makes you into a fully developed person who sees life differently because omg the power of having a man put his pp in you is just soooo life changing right????? Yawn, boring and gross premise and pure male propaganda to normalize selling your body as good and taking back power haha yes yay for quirky girl boss Emma stone!

I was agreeing until she pulled Igor out of thw movie canon and went for a coombaya Frankenstein and Monster on the same team type ending. Victor Frankenstein was never an outcast he just felt guilty for playing God in secret. If he revealed the monster to the world the moids of the time would have ate that shit up as scientific advancement while mostly women and priests argue against it. She also completely ignored Elizabeth's existance in her rewrite and never mentioned that the original story was already a Feminist take.

No. 364418

Was excited for this. I've seen a review of the movie that stated that AI is ''all over the movie'' in the cutaways and those network breaks segments, which makes me more worried about the whole movie industry than about the state of this movie itself, which people seem to like. A shame, but not everyone will have a problem with it and outside of the whole AI think it's probably going to be fine.

No. 364433

It's not supposed to suck. That's the problem. This actually garnered a lot of attention and the people who know about the AI are going to be conflicted with wanting to not support job theft and wanting to see a horror movie that everyone is pretty hyped for.

The problem I have is that once movies start implementing the AI replacement of jobs little by little, it becomes a slope. Supporting even the indie stuff with this, which you would think indie artists would know better about protecting jobs, everyone is going to just do it. Normal people aren't going to care or even know about the AI because they don't have stake in the business, but everyone else who knows, artists, graphic designers, and concept artists… People you need to do basics in movies, all movies will do this. The movie looked so good and now I'm just going to wait for a recap or pirate it. I'm not giving money to the creators for probably putting the actors in a situation where they will get harassed over the use of AI too. This also opens up the movie for people to judge if other aspects were written or conceptualized by AI.

No. 364436

ths image was aimed at everyone posting about poor things whether they liked it or not. yes, you too.
you're right. they start by cutting corners but even background elements are important. a good set designer and well-done props will go a long way in making a movie look unique and interesting.
it tells me the ppl making these movies have no artistic vision if they think they can just replace that with AI slop. and unfortunately you know studio execs are going to push it snce they care only about the bottom line and not the artistic merits of fimlmmaking. bleak.

Sounds lame and disappointing as hell. What's 1970s aesthetic about AI at all? How does it fit in a film trying to look like a 1970s broadcast? Of course in your picrel they have to say nice things about it (and probably exaggerate), what else are they supposed to say? Everything's a bottom line these days, people are getting way too brazen about how much they don't want to pay artists, performers, or general creatives for anything, they just want them to kick rocks.

Nonnas, what did you think of Dune now that part 2 came out? I watched part 2 yesterday and I still don’t know what I feel about it- it looked beautiful, but I found the dialogue kind of lackluster. It also feels like the story doesn’t have much meat on the bone for a movie with a combined 6 hour runtime. I admit I laughed out loud in the cinema when ATJ showed up, it’s like they were trying to complete the hand of “Hollywood’s only 4 young actors, apparently” so they shoehorned her in. Although I guess it could be setup for a possible sequel.
It did have a better pace than most movies that came out recently. Time passed so fast when I was in the cinema.

Very disappointed in Dune 2. It felt like they had to fill the plot with things that were covered in the first movie to justify the bloated run time, instead of adding things from the other books instead. Also disliked how self conscious the movie was about being about the most special white boy in the universe. Paul would not fucking say 'they deserve to have one of their own people lead them' kek. Austin Butler was an unexpected highlight for me considering I do not like his face, but he really commits. His impression of Stellan Skarsgaard was really good.
Also disrespectful to the Bene Geserit. Why are they constantly gasping and flinching.

NTA who replied to you, but I watched this last night, thank you a lot for bringing it to my knowledge! Unsettling is right, I had to fast forward in one part (keeping it vague) where the little girl was cut. So I don't know what happened in that scene. Some of it especially at the beginning was tricky to follow, it was super stylish, kind of fantastical, and maybe I'm using this word wrong, but…campy? The script had so many great lines and quips. A very sarcastic kind of delivery style. It was a great watch and the context I read afterwards about its showing and prize-winning at Sundance and all that and then crickets afterwards seems such a shame.

No. 364922

I loved the cinematography and atmosphere, the harkonnen planet scenes especially had such an oppressive and breathtaking presence.
But the writing and acting itself wasnt impressive. The main leads have no chemistry, and they dont show pauls rise to power and prominence very well - they made the timeline so much shorter than the book. Also it's like they were scared to show the evil of the harkonnens, the power and manipulation of the bene gesserit, it all felt very sanitised and like paul was never in any danger of losing. I don't want to say spoilers outright but even the destruction later on felt weightless.
Also the dialogue in some parts was ridiculous and I could hear other people in the cinema laughing at some moments too (that are supposed to be serious).
All in all even though its better than most trash that comes out these days it's not great - it doesnt seem like a classic or something people would watch over and over.

I just watched it on Paramount+ myself and I don't know how I got through it, especially considering I hate musicals.
Sanitized and yet more sexual makes a lot of sense. Like they took out the part about the coach and the underage student (fair honestly), Regina's mom offering her condoms. But then there's a whole sexy Halloween dance number and they explicitly say that Karen has fucked 11 different people.
The acting felt like high school theater kids trying to re-enact Mean Girls. I guess it's hard not to when the original is so iconic so imitations will always pale in comparison, but there's this specific brand of Gen Z acting that this movie suffers from and I can't put my finger on it. Every character feels like a watered down version of their original counterpart too. Janis's characterization in particular I was super not a fan of.

"Right at your door", very depressing, very slow, nothing hollywood. Expect for that Blade Runner and Koyaanisqatsi and, what I got told is the most depressing film ever is "Johnny got his gun". I haven't seen it as I don't want to see it imagining the story and emotions that movie has to offer.

microhabitat, a death in the gunj, nothing bad can happen, christine (1987), hotel coolgardie (not sure if documentaries are cheating), nitram, control (2007), sound of metal, and vagabond come to mind. maybe these are more so just depressing instead of tragic, though.

EEAAO was SO good and so hard hitting. I watched this with my friends too, and I cried so much I was choking and hiccuping and used up an entire box of tissues. In retrospect it really wasn't THAT sad… but very very good nonetheless. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is definitely something I want to watch but I think my friend has already seen it.
I've been meaning to watch Lilya-4-ever forever (lol). I predict it'll majorly fuck me up. I've seen The Florida Project and it was good, the acting was amazing especially for such young children but the ending was dumb for me and ruined it.
I appreciate it though!! Thank you everyone who replied, we're aiming to flood the room with our tears.

Oh, I'm a crier, this also depends on how easily you cry though.

I know there is more, but I'm terrible with names/titles. I'd need to spend time reminding myself of what I watched.

No. 368618

yeah, i know you asked for more tragic movies but idk if i've cried as hard at any movie as EEAAO. i think it's the way it's so bittersweet and is ultimately about possibly the most relatable thing to all humans: strained family ties + wishing you had a different life. there's nothing quite like it

No. 369616

nta but has anyone seen the hunt? and if so, did you like it? i’ve been wanting to watch it for a while but keep putting it off since the premise of “alleged pedo teacher is actually totally INNOCENT and being hunted by a WITCH MOB” seems kind of moidy.

No. 369660

I only have a vague memory of it but I did watch it. I don't remember thinking it was a moidy boo-hoo but what about how false accusations ruin men's lives? sort of film but it has been a while. In the reality of the movie plot he is innocent and it's more about how everyone else acts or decides to believe whatever they're going to believe sometimes without their reasoning being very logical because they are so swept up in their emotions that they stop listening to anyone even the kid when she tells them he didn't do anything. I need to watch it again though because I vaguely remember wondering wait, am I supposed to think he could have done it? No… The movie gets in your head a little.
I get where you're coming from though, I watched some netflix slop with a similarish premise and it irritated me the whole time how it was handled (a priest was being accused of having CP on his compute but it wasn't his…. he was protecting a pedophile out of pity though so it was hard to feel bad for him and the entire plot just seemed in poor taste because of the rampant sexual abuse in churches.) But Hunt wasn't super shitty like that where the guy is clearly trash but you're supposed to feel bad for him. The character in Hunt is actually likeable and the drama is intense.

No. 369661

It's been a while since I watched it and maybe I don't remember it quite it right, but I think the movie leaves it clear he is innocent. It's less about the alleged abuse and more about how that affects his life and the people around him. I remember the movie portraying both sides in a understandable way, you could relate to the falsely accused teacher, but also understand people's outrage and suspicion.

Ok here it goes: first, the women. They don't even speak. The camera lingers on their tits. All they do is cry and get raped. The film doesn't tell their story at all and treats them like exploitation porn. The camera itself is a nazi towards women.
"6 million was murdered but let's celebrate the 600 who weren't" is a mindset I don't approve of. I fucking hate Schindler in general. He's morally grey but is turned into a Chris Evans type of "he's so me" character. It's meant to appeal to the audience. The focus isn't even on the jews, it's on the Hollywood Hero Man.

No. 369937

Unrelated, but I hate that movie. It's one of those movies that make no sense to exist. The whole point of the book was for the narrative to be skewed by the kid's point of view, and for us to slwoly piece together what was really happening. The movie doesn't work because there is no way to rob the viewer from the very clear nazi references. It ends up being another movie about holocaust that relies solely on the shocking ending to hold up. Cheapens the whole story.

watched christine (2016) tonight, and i'm not sure how to feel about it. i'm not sure if there should have ever been a film made about christine chubbuck, or if a man deserved to write/direct her "story." is there even a "story" to be told? can you reduce a real woman to a character in a 123 minute long film? i suppose it is better than that god awful movie network that was inspired by her, turning a tragedy into a male power fantasy…

I've seen this a few times, I enjoyed it but I am also conflicted about it. She was a seriously troubled woman, but her last words were a statement about how news media prioritizes blood and gore over uplifting stories. And here we are watching a movie about her that wouldn't have been made if not for how her life ended in blood and gore.
I think at least, it's a very honest look into the mind of a severely mentally ill person, and how they can slip through the grasp of the people who love them. Same as you, I think a lot of my fascination with it is because I relate to her.

I just watched this movie called Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker and I thought it was a lot of fun if you're into shitty, low budget 80s slashers. The standout point for me was how the final girl is a cute guy instead and there are multiple scenes where he is vulnerable and crying, which was refreshing. Are there any other horror movies that feature a guy as the "final girl" instead?

Also, is it just me or were men more sexualized in movies than they are now? I mostly watch horror movies so I can't speak for movies as a whole, but I've noticed that quite a few movies from the 70s and 80s will feature male nudity in a way that is obviously meant to objectify the actor, which surprised me. Nowadays if you do see male nudity, the guy is usually out of shape and not very attractive and it's not in an objectifying way.

that movie is an old favorite of mine, just so much fun! we definitely need more final boys, but some classic examples i can think of are: tommy jarvis in jason lives (he has a trilogy but he is only cute in this one), NOES 2 and the 2012 reboot (its shit but quentin is pretty cute, he isn't as big as a focus as the female lead is tho), the hitcher 1986 (absolutely delicious male whump, probably the closest to what you want), the lost boys, night of the creeps, the burning, the loved ones (a cute boy with long hair and a female villain, very good), and fright night.

some of these are debatable, but its hard to make a good list.

AI controversy aside, Late Night With the Devil was one of those horror movies that leaves you frustrated because everything about it was mediocre. Every character was a walking trope, full of exposition dumps and bashing the viewer in the head with foreshadowing that made the reveal pretty obvious in the first twenty minutes. So many movies have done closed-room mysteries/confined sets really well and the camera work in this made it one of the least visually engaging ones I've ever seen. Mostly I'm embarrassed for the production team because for a big theatrical release it felt as cheap as a Youtube creepypasta vid with it's jumpscares and special effects (I'm sure there's creepypastas made by teenagers that are more fun to watch). You'd think all the references to real life happenings and people of the time would make it interesting but it's so dry. The skeptic was just James Randi. The psychic was just Uri Geller. Wow the satanic panic, not like every possession movie set in the 70s hasn't done it twenty times over. The entire thing was a linear vehicle with no buildup for an overplayed, predictable ending. If anyone was even slightly intrigued by this I advise you to watch Berberian Sound Studio. If you're more into the possession stuff watch Session 9.

Incredibly based taste. NOES 2 is so fun and I didn't realize they made a reboot of it! Thank you for all these recommendations, I felt bad that I couldn't think of many other movies to recommend the other nona who replied to me. It seems as though sexualizing men in 80s horror movies is quite common and yet I can't think of too many examples off the top of my head from specific movies.

Sadly I can't remember a lot, but I do remember that the Killing Kind (1973) was another movie I watched where I was surprised by how objectified the male lead was. Also Nightmare on Elm Street features pre-wall Johnny Depp in a crop top. Even Cannibal Holocaust has a gratuitous nude scene with one of the young male actors (who had a surprisingly nice body lol), although I don't know if I'd recommend that movie just for that one scene because it's a very brief moment. It's just weird that horror movies don't do that anymore. You'd think that with changing social expectations that you'd see more of that stuff, not less.

Actually it was your post that finally inspired me to watch it because you mentioned Bohemian Grove. The big cultural and media shift of 70s America is interesting to me but disappointingly the era had absolutely no bearing on the plot in that the cult itself wasn't really relevant and could have been any cult from the 60s/70s/80s, maybe they chose Bohemian Grove to be subversive since it's not as ubiquitous as the Mansons.

the only complaint i had with the movie was that i'm not sure how we, the viewer were able to see behind the stage for the necessary exposition but that's a minor nitpick. this was incredible for an indie movie breakout with a small budget.

watched the passenger. extremely boring, absolutely nothing going for it aside from having kyle gallner in it (he's ugly now but i can appreciate a good scream king). i'm very sick of these thriller films about some guy and another guy driving around and committing violence in order to kind-of skirt around discussing their trauma, or whatever.

Suffocated. Watch this shit if you want to laugh. It's terrible, even by Tubi ghetto standards. TLDR; Lexy has a shitty, cheating drug dealer boyfriend, but she's too dumb to break up, so chaos ensues. The MC was so dumb, I got pissed off at her. Picnic in a driveway? Not even a park? And all the unnecessary sex scenes with the terrible soundtrack were just overkill. I keked at the druglord giving Mike the coke in a ziplock bag. It's a dumpster fire movie. 0.5/5

finally saw this after years of seeing it shilled on social media and I can see both why people criticize and enjoy it. it's a very aesthetically pleasing movie that glimpses into the haze of adolescence the girls are going through, but at other times is very tense, heavy and unnerving. also I feel like a lot of 13 year olds unless you were either very popular or a loose leashed LA 13 year old are nowhere near as promiscuous or risky as the characters in it are either, even if part of it was based on reed's own experiences

Watched Challengers for the first time. Was scared at first because I don't like seeing women getting shafted for the sake of men in movies, especially gay men, but this one was good. Zendaya acted perfectly, and was a Stacy the whole time, despite her being pretty abusive. I know people came out of the movie hating her, but honestly, she was living the dream. The blonde one was cuter than he looked, but I wish the other guy was more attractive. Still gave it five stars for the drama because I love to see a dominant woman in media. Zendaya was so cute in this movie. Also to anyone who was scared of seeing this movie just in case it got weird, Zendaya doesn't get naked, the men are all sexualized, sort of in a gay moid way but if you like men then you'll be alright.

What are your thoughts on Labyrinth? I fully admit that most of my love for it is from nostalgia since I grew up watching it with my family and associate it with good memories. even watching it now I’m still mesmerized by it. I know most people view it as the David bowie bulge movie but I guess I can overlook it since I didn’t see anything weird about it as a kid kek. It makes me so sad that nothing like it will ever be made again since cgi is replacing puppetry/practical sets.

Nona were the guys' looks more tolerable in motion? Because I saw a picture of them in the Ugly men psyop thread and I was devastated both for Zendaya having to go through that AND the female audience for being denied a FMM scene with actually attractive guys.
Beyond that, your description of the movie sounds intriguing and maybe I'll end up watching it.

They're more tolerable, and I guess it's a "different strokes for different folks" because the girls I saw it with all found picrel hot and I thought he was ugly. By lolcow standards, you probably will find the guys ugly. But by regular, normie standards they're fine. It might just be a vibe thing too because some girls liked that his personality was abrasive, meanwhile, I preferred the blonde one because he was basically a doormat for Zendaya. Also if you don't mind spoilers for the FMM scene it's much shorter, Zendaya doesn't even sleep with them. She just watches them kiss and then says she doesn't want to be a homewrecker and leaves.

Twisted Marriage Therapist. Part of the "Twisted" Tubi movie series. It's a spicy suspense drama. TLDR; A couple with marital issues seeks guidance from a therapist, not knowing her sinister motives. This is a Tubi original, meaning no iPhone cameras, better acting, and better wigs. In other words, they upped the production, and it is similar to Lifetime's (but don't expect anything too stellar). As with every movie in this niche, it's predictable, but the plot is (somewhat) interesting enough to keep the viewer engaged. It also features lesbianism, if that piques your interest. I would recommend it if you're looking for a silly thriller. Don't look too much into the plotholes or MC's naiveness.

Oh, I went back and watched this in October when I was looking for spooky movies. It took a while to remember the plot to find it because all I could remember was "woman's husband died, she keeps having flashbacks and tries to stop it".

I think they wanted it to be a suspense tragedy which is fine, but I wish they kept it from being a groundhog day mystery and more of having her cope after a sudden death and living with survivor's guilt. Like, we didn't need to see what happened in order for her to cope, especially when it just comes back around to her being fine in the end when getting out of bed with her kids. Should've just been her trying to live her life and maybe have made it "Who killed my husband", but the tanker truck makes that's obvious lol

I don't think I'll see challengers, but from trailer it might be very generic, Zendaya has said that playing a "villain" was a challenge on its own for her on interviews, but the trailers mostly show is that scene of her having a threesome with 2 guys and then the guys start making out with each as she watches smugly, is she being a villain by making boys gay?

I don't understand the takes about Zendaya being evil or being a villain. But I don't agree with you that she was abusive or that she was living the dream. She was too good for both the men which is why she was never truly happen with just one of them. I got the impression we were supposed to think she was perfect aside from the cheating. I think she lost her dominance and conscious manipulativeness after her injury and she only started rediscovering herself towards the end of the film, in between she was acting on subconscious instinct. I'm not angry with her at all. Loved the movie.

Have any anons seen Civil War? I saw it last night with my dad and ended up really liking it. Ngl I didn't know anything about this movie before my dad asked me to go see it with him, but I saw it was directed by Alex Garland, which piqued my interest. Based on the title I felt a little skeptical, but the direction the film took was pretty interesting. I liked how it ended up being more of a character driven movie about the photojournalists than about the civil war itself (like it's never said how it started) and how fucked up being in a war zone is. I know a lot of people are probably expecting some rightoid shit since right wingers are the ones who want a civil war to happen, but that's not the case at all with this movie. On another note, Jessie (the one on the right in picrel) is so frustrating, she's such a dumbass at times like how she ended up getting Lee killed…also I don't understand why she was using a film camera kek.

I always think about it rewatching The Neverending Story. Movies like this have a lot of charm and what I also like is that they're filled with various emotions, so they don't seem as superficial as some newer fantasy movies. They can be pretty gloomy and even somewhat depressive at times, and in newer films, when something tragic happens, the plot just quickly moves on… You're not really emotionally involved there. I wonder if kids ever get sad or scared watching these movies.

Nta, it's such a nice movie, I also rewatched it many times. It's pretty simple, not overcomplicated or anything, and yet it works so well.

I watched the City Hunter live action movie, don't know the comic, don't know the anime, the only exposure i have of it was him being playable on that shitty bamco crossover 3D fighter, Jump Force.
The overall meme with him was that he was a character that just used a normal gun in a context of super powers and magic and I have to say the movie has some more of that and absolutely does not explain his whole deal with weapons, i guess he is just really good at shooting.
So from the beginning i can tell this was directed, written and choreographed by a moid, the main character is like a huge pervert but also just "perfect" he can't lose a fight nor get hit, he lands every shot and barely ever gets hurt.
is that his true super power?
The protagonist's friend is not as perfect and i guess he is the self insert for every fat weeb that was hyped for this movie because he is just as much of a pervert and dies 20 mintues into the movie, but like gets hit by a truck and doesn't die until 10 minutes after some druggie stabs him
the friend's sister takes his place and she is pretty much useless and barely does anything in the movie because according to the script she is just inferior to her brother because she is adopted and a woman.
The McGuffin of the movie is a girl that just happens to be a cosplayer that gets introduced to also be a druggy who has super powers but once the main guy "rescues" her she just doesn't have them anymore, don't know what's up with that.
There's a scene where he obstructs the view of perverts that want to take upskirt pictures of the cosplayer so I guess he is a "good" pervert and i swear that convention scene could be an Andrew Dobson reference
The super henchmen that fight with City Hunter are a fat guy and a woman and he obviously wins because one is a fat guy and the other is a woman.
The friend's sister ends up moving with him and trashes all of his porn which i guess is a good ending, Netflix at it again with the endless trash
So yeah, City Hunter the tale of an invincible pervert with the super power of giving a power fantasy to the 0% self aware moids.
I probably wrote this somewhere else but this why fuckin hate anime because it appeals to like the male fantasy and that's just totally wrong.

Sounds like the beginning is an accurate adaptation of the original manga so I wouldn't blame it on the director being male.

Yesterday I gave Persona (1966) a try since one anon posted that she didn't like it and it was in my list. I enjoyed this film, mainly because the acting was excellent. Some of the dialogues made me very uncomfortable though I hate when men write about post partumdepression, pregnancy or sexuality from a female pov, it feels wrong, unrealistic and inaccurate. The tension between Elisabet and Alma was perfectly achieved through each of their interactions, despite Elisabet being a mute. I knew beforehand that there was some jungian thing going on and it made me have a different perspective while observing the women, that was very interesting. My favourite line was delivered by the doctor at the beginning while she was talking to Elisabet. Another aspect I really liked was being able to see so clearly the actresses' skin texture, it gave a very raw touch to the photography, almost as if I was watching a play in real life in a theater, something intimate. I feel like my mind and my eye are not culturally educated enough to appreciate films like this but I still liked Persona and I'm looking forward to watch more of his movies. His short series, Fanny and Alexander (1982), is actually really good but, again, it has some of the flaws I pointed out in the first spoiler.

harmony korine is a fucking hack. i hate him and all his movies. fucking up-his-ass spoiled rich kid profiting off white trash porn. he didn't even pay the people who appeared in some of his early films. he also is friends with larry clark, known pedophile, and korine feels like a pedo too. he also just in general has a punchable face

I think people tend to pit the 3 together too much when they're all flawed and hurt each other in different ways at different times (shrug). Tashi wasn't too "good" for either of them, what she wanted was a pet tennis boyfriend to live through vicariously since she couldn't play anymore. She loved tennis above all which is why she could never fully connect with Art or Patrick, and Patrick calls this out pretty explicitly.

And I think her continued draw to Patrick was that he could "challenge" her in ways she needed as someone obsessed with competition, whereas Art was like a dog at her heel. But Patrick wasn't willing to put tennis first for her, so even though he had a better dynamic with Tashi he would never give her what she wanted. And I think the ending kind of shows the only way the trio work is AS a trio, or at least Tasha can only have 100% of what she needs if she has both Art and Patrick.

Nonnas, I just saw the first Terminator movie for the first time and I'm kinda pissed because Arnold was actually slightly cute at the beginning, but then they burnt off his eyebrows and his hair so he spent half of the movie looking UGLY until they fucked up his face some more so that at least it actually looked cool with the robot effects. The fake head was also laughably bad, though.

As for the actual movie, I don't really have any strong feelings. I just feel that Robocop did the soldier roboguy concept better, especially in terms of acting (Arnie kept doing funny faces during the action scenes even tho he's supposed to have no humanity whatsoever, it was actually distracting to me).
I don't really see the hype for The Terminator, but I've seen some people say they liked Judgment Day better so I'm looking forward to whenever I feel like watching that one anyway.

Judgement Day is definitely better in my opinion. I loved it as a child but I still enjoy it greatly whenever I see it. It's cooler in many ways and Arnie and especially Sarah are way more interesting in the movie. Liquid metal robot is awesome too. Judgement Day feels more like a complete movie which includes many interesting elements while the first Terminator is mostly this chaotic chase + a bit of romance, way simpler.

No. 380886

yeah sometimes the first two terminator movies blend together in my mind but Judgment Day is the more fun one. You have to see them in order though, The Terminator sets you up for Judgment Day. I bet it was super hype for everyone in theaters in 1991 when Arnold went from being the bad guy to being the good guy 7 years after the first movie. I know it got me going when I was a kid watching them on VHS.

I agree with this. Neither Art nor Patrick could give her everything that she wanted/needed, it took two to do so. I don't think Art or Patrick would have been satisfied with only Tashi either, same as they wouldn't have been happy if they just got together. Like I think they did kind of want to be together and did have sexual chemistry together but it could never be expressed without a woman mediating that between them. It's why Art and Patrick didn't just continue in the bedroom together after Tashi left.

They were only ever gonna be happy as a trio. I've seen takes about how they should have ditched Tashi at the end which IMO neglects the needed role she plays for them, Patrick and Art aren't interested in each other like that unless Tashi is there to bring that out of them.

Just watched "Cabin In the Woods" last night. Horror movie that subverts pretty much every single trope in the genre, yet still takes itself seriously just enough for it to be genuinely entertaining, unlike Scary Movie or other such trash.

Does anyone know if this movie was at some point shilled by coquette/pickme/edchan/minor girls at some point? I had to watch it with a woman i knew and it just seemed odd that she would pick it for certain reasons.
i was also surprised that there were no sex scenes

Screenshots of Christina Ricci in Buffalo 66 were all over tumblr back in the day if that means anything. I like Ricci and I always noticed they got a lot of notes. Her makeup and hair were probably style inspo, shots of her in the skimpy dress were reblogged hornily imo.

The quotes are full of people saying that critics are always wrong. I don't know about the quality of the movie, but can't people just accept that not every movie will be good just because it's from a critically acclaimed director? Seems like Twitter film bros just want to prove some point and they're determined to cope their way in.

I liked it a lot. I like the rules of the curse. A monster who can only walk towards you and can change appearances is fun, it was like a nightmare.

Does anyone else feel like the audio quality of ATSV is so much worse than they remembered it? I watched some scenes on youtube but the audio sounds almost cheap. I know that movies obviously sound different out of theatre but this sounds so drastically different lolol

No. 383120

its a good subversion of the virginal final girl trope

No. 383642

The audio quality was bad also in the theaters. It feels like every theater I went to had a different sound mix to it, so I'm not surprised if digital is just as poorly thrown together

The Virgin Suicides premiered 25 years ago today in Cannes! Not my favourite Coppola movie, but I still love the soundtrack, visuals and eerie atmosphere.

Im seeing a lot of jokes about that new Zendaya movie where she tricks 2 boys into kissing each other, mostly moids are making that same joke about
"Zendaya is so mid she turns you and your friend gay"
And idk maybe it's overexposure but I'm starting to find them kinda funny, is there something wrong?

one of my favorite modern horror movies ever. i'm so impressed by how they managed to make a normal guy in a white t-shirt terrifying.
picrel is the type of man to call zendaya mid. she's beautiful. it's fine if you don't think she's attractive but calling her mid is insane

>maybe it's overexposure

Yes. This is like when moids meme themselves and their peers into outlandish fetishes they wouldn't otherwise have, not saying it's on the same level but you seem subsceptible to brainwashing that starts off at first as maybe just a joke. How often do you see these posts and why? Why curate your space to include instead of exclude moidslop takes? Social media's harms on display. This isn't a problem of someone who touches grass and sees how other living people around them look.
