#1431

I think Amber Heard is hot. That’s all I need to watch. Shallow, I am.


#1432

Alan Richman ruled in his role in Robin Hood

I re-watched the green room, haven’t seen it in ages (saw it when it came out, so I was 15 at the time), I really like this film, it isn’t scary, however it has a tense atmosphere that many films (especially today’s toned down horror/thriller films) fail to replicate, adding onto that it features many genres of music which I enjoy very much (hardcore punk, crust punk, black metal and death metal), although I don’t listen to many bands that are black metal (behemoth for instance) as I like the soudn of their music however I cannot condone or support anti-semitism, therefore I end up not listening to a lot of black metal (toxic holocaust, sodom, alcest (post-black metal/blackgaze), venom, the secret, book of black earth I listen to)

Anyhow the film is about a hardcore punk band on a super low budget tour, they get this gig at a festival in which the place is home to a lot of skinheads (nazi type), they stumble across a dead body and are then trapped against their will as the neo-nazis try to clean up loose ends (if you get what I mean), there isn’t a whole lot of violence/gore, however it’s fairly realistic looking, the atmosphere makes up the brunt of why the movie is so cool. I remember going to see it with my father and he stated “for god sake son you can’t possibly like this music” to which I replied “yes I do” and I got the all “it’s just noise” response. However we both enjoyed the movie.

She pretty much ruined his grand entrance with that fire extinguisher.

What movie is that?


#1437

Dogma


#1438

Thanks. There was about a 15 year period that where I missed/didn’t watch movies. About 1985 to right around 2000.

Avengers 4 teaser trailer came out today. Found it kind of underwhelming for some reason. :unamused:


#1440

I was fine with it until Ant Man showed up. I fucking hate Ant Man. They should have made him disappear and just bring in Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Douglas to add on to the plot from the last movie.


#1441

Yeah they lost me on adding the whole Antman joke part. Too much of a switch in tone compared to the rest of the trailer. I would have done something different.


#1442

Binge worthy show on Netflix: Bodyguard.

This British suspense series is possibly the most riveting show I’ve ever watched. It might be a little premature for me to say since I just started watching it last night but it’s been a while since I’ve watched a show and simply couldn’t stop watching. Early The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are the only shows that have come close.


#1443

Just finished Bodyguard, it was only 6 episodes! The show was full of a lot of implausibility, especially toward the end, but what shows aren’t these days? Like I said above, it’s worth the watch and at six hours of view time, not too much of a commitment.


#1444

Agreed, very entertaining, but the last episode was about an hour long face-palm. Over on the Amazon front, Jack Ryan was pretty good too, kind of similar in some ways. I can’t think of the characters as anyone other than Rob Stark and Jim Halpert though.


#1445

Thanos is a farmer LMAO.


#1446

Actually that’s true to the source material


#1447

Ik but none of the non comic fans will get it haha.


#1448

Yeah good point


#1449

I will admit Im been a huge fan since I was a young kid. Seen every TOHO release and own most on them in one format or another.


#1450

Yeah, I’ve been thinking about the last episode and I’ve decided it reminded me of every big high school report I ever had. I’d spend weeks doing a splendid job on the first three-quarters of the project. Unfortunately, I’d inevitably be up at 3 in the morning crying over the last quarter just trying to get it done. The difference is I was running out of time, they were just plain lazy. Spoiler alert Could they really not think of a way to make the ending confessionals remotely plausible? They didn’t even try.
