    I watched the greatest film of all time, Vertigo the other day. It was fine! Pretty good I suppose. I really love how those old films just end. Bang there's your ending now fuck off. No credits either cos they're at the start.
  2. The Asian Film Thread

    That's because nothing happens in it. I do love it though.
  3. The Asian Film Thread

    I got the same copy of Mahjong and abandoned it after 10 minutes. I've been watching more Asian films but they've mostly been Hong Kong action comedies. Me and my brother have been watching them on Saturday nights and having a lovely time. We've decided to watch as many Sammo Hung/ Jackie Chan films as we can. Eastern Condors, Wheels on meals and Mr nice guy are great fun
  4. The Asian Film Thread

    I watched In the mood for love today and thought it was quite wonderful. Looking forward to more Wong Kar Wai. I also watched the second half of The Wind Rises after falling asleep halfway through last night. It was fine, looked amazing obviously, I would have liked it more if I'd watched it in one I expect. Looking forward to hearing what you think of Yang Patrick.
  5. The Asian Film Thread

    The first one. Goodbye dragon inn it is not, you'll be relieved to know.
  6. The Asian Film Thread

    I finally watched A Brighter Summer Day and liked it a great deal. Feel silly having put it off for so long having enjoyed Yi Yi and Terrorizers. I still haven't seen mahjong though. Difficult to precisely identify what I like about Edward Yang's films but they are slow and quiet and often strikingly beautiful, the climax to this film left me with a lump in my throat just as Yi Yi did. If you have a free day to devote to a film I'd recommend either of these. Perhaps get up early and enjoy them with a nice breakfast beer as I did.
  7. The Asian Film Thread

    Hello, this is a nice idea for a thread and I have so many Asian films in my to watch list, I'm gonna commit to watching more too. As for recommendations there has been so many great ones already. I love koreda too, nobody knows and Our little sister are my favourites of his but I think I'm alone in liking the latter so much. Last year I found out about the great Hong Kong director, Johnnie To. He's made some great action films, Drug War, The Mission and breaking news are ones I'd recommend. Oh I like castle of Cagliostro too only saw that the the first time last year, such a cool movie though as you are hit and miss with Miyazaki it might not be your cup of tea. Oh and if anyone has a free day the entire 9 hours of the Wang Bing documentary Ti Xi Qu is on YouTube, the film that contains one of the most upsetting scenes I've ever seen.

    Does Santa bring gifts for everyone or just children? I think parents buy their kids presents in addition to the ones Santa brings but the parents are too oblivious and self involved to notice the extra gifts.

    Thanks. At this point I'd like to say that everytime something comes out of nowhere and kills someone that's me getting nailed. Almost always.

    I think therefore I scan I know the air is sweet I know not what I am I am CHAMELEON STREET. It's been a while since I've seen it but I've been looking through all the a films I've watched for the first time this year and remember really enjoying this.First heard about it on the great film podcast called All Units, where the host talked about it with Perfect Blue(.http://thewonderofitall.xyz/all-units-episodes/2017/9/21/9-work-career-opportunities) it's the(true!?)story of con man Doug Street who apparently performed several hysterectomies with no medical training while impersonating a doctor. The film is weird and funny and angry and has a really boring sub plot, I recommend it! It won the grand prize at Sundance (I think) and then just disappeared, it's on YouTube now.

    I love it a lot too. So beautiful. Favourite Reichardt for sure.
  13. Spelunky!

    I watched the reveal trailer on YouTube and one of the first comments is "no gameplay footage? are you fucking kidding?" imagine being that miserable. This is of course brilliant news as SPELUNKY is the best game. What's it going to be like!? I just hope it has Coop still and that scoring big doesn't take all fuckin day. Edit: and speaking of coop, me and my bro play coop a lot and he's made a video of clips of us fuckin up to celebrate spelunky 2

    I was lucky enough to catch a screening of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre on Halloween night. It was in a local independent, really tiny cinema. It was packed. And I tell you what friends that's a fuckin movie. Absolutely delighted to have seen it on the big screen.
  15. I Had a Random Thought (About Video Games)

    Hello friends. I recently got a full time job for the first time after spending yonks doing nothing. Now I have no time to play video games! Wtf? Is this what being an actual adult is like? What little time I do have is devoted to MGSV which is still amazing and feels incredible to play and I don't expect bombing around Afghanistan abducting goons while 80s music plays to get old soon, even after 200 or so hours. BUT there is one thing. Breath of the Wild has ruined all open world games as now, whenever you can't climb everything in sight it feels like total bullshit, a massive oversight!
