The new Terminator is Mexinatrix Patriarchybot 1000 vs LGBTQ bot 3000:





Obviously the new Sarah Connor is a Latino girl or something like that. The LGBTbot does not even know that it's a bot, because the trannie-bot can believe that it's human and it is.

I watched a pirated screen copy of John Wick 3. My favourite scenes were the dog scenes. My least favourite scenes were the ones with the Billions trans chick.

I just watched this terrific Japanese film: "Sweet Bean." IMO, it is one of the best life-affirming films since "Life is Beautiful."

I cannot say too much without spoiling the plot, but the film involves redemption and the triumph of the human spirit. Highly recommended.

RE: The Movie Thread
Now for those of you who want to go over to the dark side, I recently read an article regarding the ten best horror film re-makes. I was surprised to learn that there was one film that not only had I not seen the re-make, but I had also never seen the original film. As someone who avoids most horror films because of their low quality but who also loves high-quality horror films, I immediately ordered a copy of each film.

The film is titled "Suspiria." The original was made in 1977. The re-make was made in 2018, but is also set in 1977. Both movies contain extremely graphic and disturbing murder scenes. Both films are based on the mythology of The Three Mothers, who are three powerful witches who once roamed the earth, gaining power and wealth, and leaving destruction and death in their wake. I was impressed enough by the original film that I immediately watched the re-make the next evening.

The original film is a little campy, but is well-acted, engaging, and has a great sound track -- for what amounts to a high-quality B-movie horror film.

I definitely recommend a watch.






As I said, the original film was interesting enough that I really looked forward to watching the re-make the next evening. Wow! The re-make is twice as good as the original, has a story with plenty of depth and layers, and has an ass-kicking plot twist and surprise ending. Really, the only similarity between the two films is that they both have the same title and they both involve a witch's coven at a dance school. Other than that, they are quite dissimilar.

The re-make is similar to the Korean film "Burning" (discussed on the previous page), because it is jam-packed with hidden meanings and it will also leave you wondering about what exactly happened. It also has a wild demented dancing occult scene that is reminiscent of the masked ball scene in Stanley Kubrick's film "Eye's Wide Shut." I look forward to viewing the film closely a second time.

This is one of those rare films that leaves your mind in a semi-trance state after you watch it -- as your brain tries to process exactly what you saw.

Highly recommended.

RE: The Movie Thread
I also hadn’t seen the original Suspiria, however my interest was piqued by last years’ remake trailer and the fact that Thom Yorke did the soundtrack.

The remake was fantastic, even without subtitles (and I don’t speak German).

As much as the director did a great job of it, I couldn’t help but feel that it had David Lynch written all over it and would have been great to see his take on it.

Interesting. I'm a fan of the original Suspiria but held off from the remake due to mixed reviews. I'll give it a look.

If you enjoyed Suspiria, i can recommend you this Gaspar Noé movie. It's basically Suspiria on LSD. Every character in this movie plays a special role.





The 5 min intro scene is a one take scene, simply mindblowing coordination. One of the best dance scenes i've seen in a movie. If you're into fucked up movies, you'll love this one.

RE: The Movie Thread
I saw Godzilla: King of the Monsters on Friday. It's a pretty good monster flick with US critics complaining as always. I liked how the Monsterverse shows creatures like Kong, Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, etc.. are seen as Titans and a balance to even things out when humanity fucks up.

The complaints from critics was the opposite of why they didn't like Godzilla (2014). They didn't like it was to too much human interaction and not enough monster action. King of the Monsters was criticized for too much monster action and not enough human action. WTF?

The soundtracks for the films are really well-done, there didn't seem to be much propganda in your face.

Saw Brightburn last week and was pretty disappointed. Had a solid premise and the first act was well-written, but they didn’t really bother fleshing it out or developing the core concept.

Book of Eli, with Denzel Washington, was probably the best thing I’ve seen in a couple months.

Cr33pin, yeah, the trailer for Rambo: Last Blood makes me feel all funny inside. I hope it gets an adult-appropriate certificate. Three cheers for Stallone for keeping the flame alive.

Kurgan, yeah I've noticed the critics are panning the new Godzilla, yet public word of mouth seems good. Usually a good sign. What the fuck are these critics smoking?! Who goes to watch a Godzilla movie for the 'human drama' or intricate plot?! One review in the Daily Mail was slamming it for being 'too loud' and being full of mindless destruction! I hear they actually do 'let them fight!' in this one, so I'll probably give this one a watch.

Thing is, the protagonists in this one really were the parents, since the kid was on a freight train to damnation. What do you do when you find out your child is evil? They completely failed to explore a rich theme like except in the most superficial way. In the world of Brightburn, you either deny it totally or try to kill him. It was a wasted opportunity. Could have been like The Omen.

Wow! I have always been fascinated by the Ford Shelby story. I have seen a few of the documentaries over the years. No one realizes just how arrogant the European auto companies were during that period (and often for very good reason). I hope that the film stays truly historical. I am looking forward to it.

Along the same lines, there is a very interesting film about the true story of how the California wine industry overtook the French wine industry in the 1970's, titled "Bottle Shock." Let's just say that it took the French awhile to adjust to the new paradigm.

I haven't seen this one yet but I will check it out. I love Gasper Noe. His style is incredibly unique. His films have blown my mind and changed my life.

I am unfamiliar with Gasper Noe, so I just reviewed his filmography. It includes a short film titled "Sodomites," a 1998 film where "Leather-clad men and women lounge around a large room as a Minotaur enters and proceeds to sodomize a willing and eager young woman."

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0219316/

Fortunately, the film is only seven minutes long -- and the cast of characters is short:

-- Marc Barrow : The Rectal Beast
-- Coralie Trinh Thi : Sodoma
-- Mano Solo : The Master
-- Philippe Nahon : A spectator

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomites_(film)


Another film involves a "10-minute long take rape" and a scene where a pimp "anally rapes her for several minutes of screen time, after which he brutally beats her into unconsciousness."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irr%C3%A9versible

I sense a common theme here, involving anal invasion.

I've seen nearly all of Gasper's films back when I was bluepilled.
Cinematography is really unique, other than that it's just degeneracy, and shock for the shock value.

RE: The Movie Thread
Took the boy to see Godzilla; King of the Monsters at the weekend. He's a big fan and into all the lore and I was curious after reading all the incredibly negative critic reviews.

Is it as bad as they say? No way, not one bit. Neither is it a classic, but it's fun and entertaining. And loud!

The critics all panned the characterisation and lack of human drama, but compared to all the other Godzilla movies, this was positively Shakespearean! It has Charles Dance in it (basically playing Tywin Lannister) and that moody cow from Stranger Things (who can act at least).

The effects are top-notch and the monster design is extremely faithful to the old Japanese films, yet cleverly updated. King Ghidora looks positively satanic in some shots and performs admirably as a worthy nemesis for the big fella.

The biggest fault of the film is the lack of monster action. They said they'd put this right after only featuring Godzilla for 7 minutes in the last one, but they haven't. They needed to just film a fight/city destruction for 5 or 10 solid minutes instead of cutting away all the time when it gets good.

Typical of hollywood to try and rewrite history.

What really happened was that the market took an elite product and turned it into mass-produced generic alcoholic grape juice - of course the whole propaganda machine was required to make the morons drink it.
But the merchant wants to improve his bottom line, and to sell a lot of shit you have to sell mediocre shit, no way around it.

I'm sure people like EMJ have something smarter to say about this.
I'll just say I just find it fascinating how those movies drip of the envy of these "middlemen" towards the people who are actually good at something (like the artisan whose family has been doing this for generations and their accumulated experience and knowledge), and how said movies always try to make people think that they can just come out of nowhere, work it a bit, and end up just as good as the others.
Because fuck tradition, hard work, dedication, intelligence and the time invested !
Our soylent green is just as good as real beef, and if you don't agree you're a snob, a communist or anti-american (or a nazi. Or a frenchman).

I guess I should not be surprised given the current attack on anything good, true or beautiful.
I'm just surprised how people actually watch it and enjoy it.

Quick tip for the not so bright maybe : when it says "the true story", what it usually means is jewish revisionism.
But it's for the advancement of the free market so that's fine I guess ..

So, in a period when French wines ruled the world, two upstart California producers triumphed over renowned wineries from Bordeaux and Burgundy at a blind tasting judged by France’s foremost wine experts -- and you believe it to be a grand conspiracy?

What part of "blind tasting" do you not understand?

And you somehow know more than "France’s foremost wine experts," who judged the competition?

"the artisan whose family has been doing this for generations and their accumulated experience and knowledge" Maybe that was the problem. Doing things the same way for generations, and resting on your laurels, often leads to stagnation. Want the best? Then innovate -- and work even harder.

Then the same thing happened again thirty years later:

Quote:A 30th anniversary re-tasting on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean was organized by Steven Spurrier in 2006. As The Times reported "Despite the French tasters, many of whom had taken part in the original tasting, 'expecting the downfall' of the American vineyards, they had to admit that the harmony of the Californian cabernets had beaten them again. Judges on both continents gave top honors to a 1971 Ridge Monte Bello cabernet. Four Californian reds occupied the next placings before the highest-ranked Bordeaux, a 1970 Château Mouton-Rothschild, came in at sixth."

Such criticism sounds more like sour grapes from people with an entitlement mentality who cannot face reality.
