I watched the social network yesterday. Aside from zuckerberg being a total sucker-sperg it did motivate me to get shit done. Sure he launched the proto-facebook out of beta rage, but he changed society. One man, man shit It'd be awesome to have that big of an impact on things.

RE: The Movie Thread
Just watched a doc on netflix called The Ambassador. A dude buys himself credentials to become a diplomat to the Central African Republic and attempts to navigate its murky political waters to get diamonds. He talks to all kinds of big political players by making bribes to get diamonds. The most interesting character to me was the former Legionaire, now head of state security for the CAR. Made me glad I never send any money to poor people in Africa.

You want to know the only thing you can assume about a broken down old man? It's that he's a survivor.

RE: The Movie Thread
You yanks probably haven't heard of it but watch a film called Dead Man's Shoes. It's got one of my favourite British actors in it (Paddy Constantine who was the journo in the 3rd Bourne film). It's about a disabled kid who got bullied and his ex military brother and him seeking revenge. Brilliant acting.

I was glued for the television for a couple of hours the other day watching North By Northwest. It's a classic.

This is supposed to be one of the best silent films. I've never watched one in my life.

These are good if you have a Blu Ray player and nice sized flat screen. No dialogue, just great visuals and music. Makes you feel like you're on drugs without being on them tard

Looks good but more like a watered down version of the ones I put up. I think it's the cheesy music.

I forgot someone gave this to me a while back and watched it the other day. Decent war movie but I'm starting to think Stanley Kubrick was overrated.

RE: The Movie Thread
Studied film, some good ones
-Citizen Kane
This scene is one of the my FAVORITE scenes in all of cinema, basically the main character was just told by his second wife that she's leaving. You have to see the previous scenes/other parts of the movie but you just FEEL it when you see it. Don't know about yall, but think some of you can maybe relate to girls making you feel this way or ever just having these kind of moments in life.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFT083GhycM

-Wizard of Oz (yes I'll say it, I love the metaphor of The Yellow Brick Road as well. Wanted to do a painting of it with a German girl I knew)
-The Shining (whoever was thinking Kubrick was overrated needs to watch the Shining if they haven't already, that movie is just absolutely trippy as hell and just a great horror movie)
-Aliens-BADASS Sci fi/action movie and one of the few sequels that surpasses the first.
-Hot Tub Time Machine-Nothing major, just a funny movie thats good for watching with your boys-I rewatch and I catch some awesome lines between the guys.
"I don't like you takin' liberties with my dick!"


I'll come up with more later.


Game-ish related
Yes Man-Really funny movie, decently written-and if you know game you will easily see how much more real the conversations in this are (as far as banter) compared to other crap.
Hitch-Yes maybe a bit generic, but I really liked it. I think the whole process of going from being shitty to good at game, is something I'll never get tired of and liked seeing.
Crazy Stupid Love-As already stated, Goslin in this is pretty much a role model for people. Steve Carrell is damn hilarious wherever he is.
Wanted-THE Red pill movie, straight up wuss guy turns into a bad ass.
Batman Begins-Not only a good movie, but VAST amounts of it can be related to game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF5q_4tXDLk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9J6J5BcHFCs

Iron Man - This should be obvious, Tony Starks a badass playboy turned into philanthropy.
Kick Ass - Pretty badass movie
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTFv8zaoFdI (Boxed in uni for a bit, Omen by Prodigy is a BADass song)
(Sorry I don't know how to embed as of right now)

Anybody looking forward to the movies this summer? Superman, Kick ass 2, Wolverine, Iron Man 3, Star Trek, Pain and Gain, Great Gatsby, Fast and Furious, The Internship, World War z?

RE: The Movie Thread
Saw Zero Dark Thirty a few weeks ago. I found the main character super off putting and cunty. She just raged until she got what she wanted. Bitch never read Dale Carnegie. It was an alright movie, I guess.

Also saw Gomorrah. Gangster flick in Italy, with like 4 different stories. I thought it was really good, but a little hard to follow. Basically there are different sects of Gomorrah that are at war within a small community. Super violent.

Watched another gangster flick starring Denis Leary as a small time hood in Charlestown, a crime ridden neighborhood in Boston. His cousin is killed by the local gang lord and he must decide whether to rat or let things stay as they are. Overall I liked it. There is a funny bar scene where he is super beta with a yuppie chick in some bar.

RE: The Movie Thread
Just watched one flew over the cuckoos nest. Great movie. maybe its all the time I've spent on the forum, but it really came off as a "red pill" anti-feminism film. The head nurse abuses her power and manipulates the residents. All the male characters defer to her power (all the staff that is). Nicholson comes in and fucks shit up by doing typical male goof-off type stuff and she can't handle that so she manipulates her power to eventually have him subdued.

and of course with any 'red pill' idea there are cries of sexism/misogyny

"How can a film/book so sexist and misogynistic get praised as a masterpiece? There are actually schools that have kids read the book and show the movie in class. Horrible. All of the women are put into one of two very simple categories. They are either a a man hating b***h or a whore with no self respect. That's it. Yet this movie gets several oscar wins including best picture. This only proves that the Academy knows NOTHING about good movies. And the fact that it's number 8 on Imdb is ridiculous. A film as offensive to women as this one should NOT be praised like how it is."

Who said that about One flew over the cuckoos nest? its one of my favorite movies along with Dr Strangelove and The Departed.

RE: The Movie Thread
some chick on IMDB said it.

People like that don't understand that characters were written for a specific purpose. Had the main nurse been very good at her job with minor character flaws the meaning of the entire film would be lost.

(01-01-2013 11:42 PM)1Minute Wrote:  Awesome movies:

Layer Cake: Daniel Craig is a coke trafficker who gets in a deal with some mdma stolen from Serbian war criminals and the aftermath between that.

Catch Me If You Can: Natural con artist and his true story about being a thief who beat the FBI for almost a decade. True Story

Felon: A family man who goes past the legal limits of defending his castle. Finds himself in the deepest end of the harshest prison.

Gladiator: Politics throw a Roman general from fighting countries into the frying pan of hand to hand combat and the journey out.

In Bruges: Colin Ferrel is a hitman who on his first job, shoots through his target and kills a 6 yr old kid. He hides with his partner in Bruges waiting for the heat to die down.

Lucky Number Slevin: Josh Hartnett is a man who's luck ran out, staying in a friend's apartment when 2 different criminal families decide that his friend (now him) owes about $100,000.

Man on Fire: Denzel is a former mercenary whose last protectee showed him that life was worth living. Big mistake.

Pulp Fiction: Classic. Hard to describe, but I really recommend it.

Rise of the Foot Soldier: The movie starts with 3 murders of the most dangerous drug dealers in Essex, UK. First quote: "But before the murders, beatings, torture and ecstasy, there was football" The story of a young badass into a serious weight in the work-for-hire very shady industry. True story

Snatch: A giant diamond "The size uf ya fist" goes missing. The movie shows everyone involved and their involvement.

Street Thief: A commercial burglar in Chicago (If you ain't heard by now, I'm talking about Chi-town) gives an inside view to his life. Until shit goes bad.

Thank You for Smoking: Lobbyist for tobacco shows how he kicks ass.

The Business: International Playboy 101: traffic hashish from Morocco to Spain. Then don't get killed by your asshole partners.

The Grey: Liam Neison is a sniper for wolves on oil rigs (Goddamn manliest job ever) whose plane back to civilization crashes and he emerges as the leader of men trying to survive. GREAT movie about the essence of masculinity and the sacrifices involved.

The Town: Ben Affleck robs armored trucks w/ the new Bourne. You wanna know about loyalty? This is your movie.

Ben: "I need your help, you can never ask me about this again, and we're going to hurt some people"

New Bourne guy: "Who's car we gonna take?"


Traffick: The daughter of a federal judge gets into heroin. The wife of a coke trafficker starts where he left off. A guy selling quarter tons of coke gets busted. The dynamics between them shows the difficulty between legalization of drugs vs not.

Training Day: Denzel and some white guy have the shittiest day ever. Rookie to having a shotgun in his mouth in 24 hrs.



Pretty good:

Alpha Dog: Guy from that hiking in Alaska movie kidnaps a kid over a $1200 debt. Justin Timberlake takes care of him. Basically, a guide on how you can constantly be digging yourself deeper. True story. Top 10 FBI most wanted.

American History X: Ed Norton and his younger brother experience the neo-Nazi deal and what life can really look like when you cut out the bullshit.

Brotherhood: Frat initiation is to rob a convience store. A brother around the corner gives you money and you pretend you robbed it. 1 time, they fuck up the location and one actually robs a store. This ends up in a hostage in the basement "where you can't hear screaming". 1 bad decision leads to another.

Crazy Stupid Love: Ryan Gosling turns Steve Carell from fuckin loser to man. Terrible story and most parts, but Gosling is my goal for who to be: rich, well dressed, interesting. Great rolemodel in my book.

Drive: Getaway driver sees the clean life in a cute neighbor (but why the fuck she has short hair?)

The American: Clooney is an assassin hiding out in rural Italy who falls in love with a whore. Crystallized why I didn't get into covert operations.

The Guard: A cop in rural England takes LSD in the opening scene. He ends up finding a huge coke deal going down with Basher from Oceans 11 and they plan to take them down.

Shawshank Redemption: An innocent man makes his way through prison. Classic

The Next Three Days: Russell Crowe plans a prison break getting his wrongly accused wife (that "Got a big trunk gonna put a bike in it blonde bitch" from 40 yr virgin)

Thomas Crowne Affair: Late 90's James Bond is a Billionaire who does heists for fun. Dope for lifestyle.

Unstoppable: A train that can't stop. Sounded shitty but I remember liking it.

V for Vendetta: Terrorist tries to fix his country. At the end, you'll put your hand in the air.


These are my picks. Let me know if you agree or not or got any recommendations.

Incredible list mate! I would add Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, The Green Mile, Reservoir Dogs, Sin City, and Blood Diamond

Heat is a classic!! Check it out if you've never seen it. It never gets talked about as much as Goodfellas, Casino, or any of those but it's up there with them. Deniro, Pacino, Danny Trejo, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore.
