RE: The Movie Thread
Unfortunately The Joker has a 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes with them mentioning a few things about capitalism, glories of communism, racism etc.

Knives Out by Rian Johnson has for example a 100% rating which usually is a bad sign especially when the sheisters say that it is woke as fuck, that it shows how evil White rich people are.

Dave Chappelle's new special got a 33% rating vs 98% by the people. I liked it too despite Dave getting some minor points wrong, but it's not his fault for being unaware of certain statistics. He is a good guy and one of the best comedians of our time.

Currently the critics ratings are a good counter-indicator of whether something is good. But it looks to me as if Joker tells the ancient story of the underdog - just one who instead of going positive, goes insane on an eternal chaos-revenge trip. That means that the movie could be good despite a few propaganda points added.

This film has Robert De Niro as a stand in for Trump, and I've seen young moron socialists on facebook, saying "right on, wow,no wonder he'd go insane in a world of capitalism, OMG SO RELEVANTS SO MUCH MUCH TO SAY ABOUT THIS TIME IN HISTORY".

It's just more endless despiriting nilhilist shit that we've seen for nigh on 2 decades.

RE: The Movie Thread
Aight time to talk about the obvious fellow swolemates: new Joker movie.

They're calling it an incel movie.

I am seething. I am not an incel and I want to see it! (For reference notch count, n>0)

Yes, Robert De Niro is in it, but that never stopped me from giving my hard earned dollars to free web streaming sites to watch Hollywood liberal swill.

And they've angered me, because I don't even watch comic films, but now they've temped me to watch the new "incel film" despite the fact Joker's love interest is a woman of color. Just so that I can confirm that it is a toxic masculinity artifact, and that it fetishes fascist hankerings for black women and in fact territorializes the production of subtextual WoC cues in popular cinema--.

My work is cut out for me to sneak into the theater and watch it without a ticket, instead I will get a ticket for the much safer, multi-racial fast and furious film with Pacific Islander Dwayne "rock" johnson, and the formerly impoverished cockney and physically disadvantaged (person of baldness) Jason Statham.

And no, I will not check the ratings on IMDB or rottentomatoes!

Chad.

"First they came for the incels, and I did not speak out—because I was not an incel.

Then they came for the MRAs, and I did not speak out— because I was not a MRA

Then they came for the neo-masculine Rooshites, and I did not speak out—because I was not neo-masculine Rooshite.

Then they came for Chad—and there was no one left to speak for me, Chad, it's me Chad, and I'm in a concentration, feminist breeding camp, hey is anyone out there. Why are they tugging me down there.... Hey, I didn't consent to this! But alright, hey its okay, they say I get extra food afterwards if I give them a little sample they need for their research. Don't know when my next post..."

It's just more endless despiriting nilhilist shit that we've seen for nigh on 2 decades.

we-ll, the SJWs and globe-homos love their subversion and their degeneracy.

HOWEVER, if you ask them what they think of Citizen Kane, or the Godfather or Godfather II , Apocalypse Now, Taxi Driver, Vertigo etc. they will say that those are great films.

They may then try and map their "Toxic-Masculinity", SJW, "late capitalism" poison into any analysis of those films.. but a broken clock is still correct twice a day.

The Joker film is supposed to be a homage to Cassavetes' 1976 The Killing of a Chinese Bookie.
That might be because it shows a guy in makeup being heckled and struggling on stage in a deliberately 70s style city.
It may be because the themes are the same: the arbitrary and abstract hell that modern cities can become for modern man/ Everyman.

Michael Mann was a left wing Chicago Jewish intellectual, his film Thief was a critique of capitalism, so was his masterpiece Heat.
But they were good films.

Nothing wrong with a left wing loonie further Left on the spectrum making a good film, so long as it is actually good.

Black Panther wasn't good, nor was Captain Marvel, Oceans 8, Moonlight, *name most recent films anyone can think of.

The fact that Robert de Niro is in this movie raises concerns because he's been such a hack for so long.

I just hope it isn't all smoke and mirrors and GoT style weirdness where more people involved at the outset start writing their own stellar reviews before they even start filming.

I hope that this will be, however bleak and degenerate, a genuine work of Art.

Am I the only one who’s just tired of these comic book films? I don’t care how good Joaquin Phoenix is. Fuck the Joker and all this made-up fantasy crap. Can we go back to making adult films with adult storylines?

RE: The Movie Thread
Great Twitter thread on the Scarface and Casino and the reasons it caused their downfall:


It's funny that Casino (1995) clearly depicted the Jewish hubris while Scarface showed a low-class Italian who became too successful and could not deal with the high-tier crime syndicate job anymore.

Back when Hollywood was still somewhat good.....

RE: The Movie Thread
Speaking of films for adults, I notice myself having a lot less time for anything slickly produced which almost all the time loses reality and what time I do spend; I do so for one shot miniseries or TV films from yesteryear, that have a defined end and are "get in and get out" so to speak, here are my two favourites, that are over a decade old:

On the Beach (2000), runs for 3 hrs and 18mins in total

Now this was a real find, its a remake of the 1950's film (which I had not seen) about the aftermath of a US and China nuclear exchange over Taiwan and the last only bastion of safety from the fallout is Australia, follows the commander of US submarine, and the tension in a society waiting out its last days, great cgi and down to earth acting (particularly from Armand Assante that I was not familiar with, very masculine and charismatic), secondary characters are great too, better than almost anything I've seen from this genre in a long long time. It can be all seen on youtube, but there is bay of pirates where you can get it from in great quality. I think this is a lot better than the original and highly underrated. It's slight tv-esque quality adds to the haunting surreal reality of it compared to glossier productions. Example Terminator 1 vs Terminator 2. The portrayal of radiation being as deadly as is portrayed is very outdated because its based off the book from the 50's, yet it still works in the film and you buy it. They don't change that original conceit to reflect modern science. The story wouldn't work if they did.





I'm just going to say that Rachel Ward was a phenomenally beautiful woman.

Supervolcano (2005)

I recently remember watching this BBC production as a teenager and recalled how completely immersed I was due to how fully formed it felt, watched it recently and thankfully it wasn't my nostalgia talking, its just as good as I remember. The acting is very good, and it had a budget. What will happen when Yellowstone (or any other VEI8) unzips self and the ramifications, remarkably propaganda free. Great atmosphere and interactions, you will forget your watching a film.





What am I'm trying to say there are lot of beautifully produced things that have no substance to them, and a lot of things that are not as technically proficient that are packed with weight and feeling.

Italian? Haha. When was the last time that you watched that classic film? It is all about Cuban immigrant thugs in Miami.

Scarface tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Al Pacino) who arrives in 1980s Miami as part of the Mariel boatlift with nothing and rises to become a powerful drug lord. Some Cuban expatriates in Miami objected to the film's portrayal of Cubans as criminals and drug traffickers.

I have seen "The Hidden Blade" twice. It is a truly outstanding film.

I did not realize that the director had done two other samurai movies. I just ordered the other two films.




I just finished watching all three films. All about love and honor. Utterly terrific!

Screw all that Hollywood superhero nonsense. Watch some classic Japanese and Korean films.
