>>2787 >do you have to go through red? Got banned for inactivity there, pretty tough to maintain myself there because it's hard to seed, uploading is easy enough if you know the basics of encoding but you upload once and every sucker with a sneedbox will dust your chances at building a good ratio so it's practically a one-time upload only. Will try to appeal my ban (which was in an account already with a re-activation and this last ban was 3 months ago) but makes me wonder if it is worth it, the list of albums i wanted which were rare was a bit long to keep buying discs to upload, might as well buy the albums i want because practically costs the same. If PtP is as hard to maintain as RED then it's not worth it, but as far as i know the former is much easier, once a time i thought it wasn't needed because Zooqle or Monova had everything (mainstream) but things are getting harder to find despite the mainstream nature of it, guess KG needs to relax a bit or some maniac to start doing the old P2P trickery of the old days or the russians to stop hardcoding their dubs over the audio. I still maintain 'Tik is for DVD aficionados only, i don't see anything there that isn't on KG other than the BTS bonuses inside the discs, if someone is looking for something inside i can search can't guarantee my account works lol thank you again master inviter for the tickets Also this >>2811 so much, commenting on private trackers is just risking getting the boot from a mentally ill/overly paranoid mod, every time. As long as one participates in the polls and other similar things the mods will know you are not a bot or some fed.
>>2813 >red It's easy enough to build ratio if you fill requests or upload high res albums.
I hadn't used soulseek in a while, but it has many FLAC albums that aren't on RED
>>2818 >if you fill requests That takes money to do which i didn't have some months ago, nowadays i have 3 albums ripped and ready to upload but i lost my account due to lack of use. It's my fault for not knowing where i got into but it's not like other sites where the freebie of the day gets you some megs to upload like KG or TV-Vault. Now that i think of it i might request my re-activation but i doubt they will take it, a shame because RuTracker is great but there's just some niche stuff in RED i cannot find everywhere aside from ironically YouTube, some top ruskie uploaders simply stopped after 2015.
>>2828 >That takes money to do There are also requests for albums you can find on deezer or qobuz.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1k98QjeK0s I used to be a pretty big film buff but slowly ruined my ability to enjoy anything that was 'just good' by being insanely picky in what I would finish. If I were ever in a situation where I was with a girl and she wanted to watch a movie in bed I reckon I'd bottle it by shitting on the movie. How do you overcome disillusion?

Gunslinger Girl and that one movie with Natalie Portman are the two that I remember off the top of my head, but what was the first? And to add to that, I guess there's also the "street urchin child gets put under the wing of a master criminal". For instance, in the earlier Total War games, your spy/assassin could get a child pickpocket ancillary.

>Periodically attack the infinite backlog >Consult the spirits >They shit in my mouth For some reason, this was in the back of my mind as a highly rated movie to watch at some point. I read no review, no synopses, save maybe hearing it praised in passing some time around it's release. I got up to the part where the venal harlot begins openly cucking the soy-boy puppet man with his hippie retard pseudo-tranny gf and turned it off, because after being suckered in by the quirky aesthetic and the neat scene dressing like the tiny office, I found all the characters intensely detestable. Not even in a way that was pleasant to watch. Their personalities excite in me a deep gut-feeling of revulsion and hatred. I'm not qualified to be a puritan, but this is definitively a steaming degenerate Hollywood turd, and it has Jewish names all over it. -1000000/10, I hope every name associated with this production is hunted down and fed feet first into an autoclave. Feel free to regale me with tales of movies that you had the impression were rated highly, but turned out to have emanated from a diseased post-op axe-wound.

>>1431 I love Hank tho
>>1431 >>1432 >tfw jews try to make whites detestable, and fail miserably because we're such kind people. yeah, i like Hank too.
>>1431 >King of the Hill is also written in the same way. I don't see it that way other than Hank who is legitimately a shitty person for grilling meat with gas, the rest are also flawed but have redeeming values at the end. The injun is a societal scumbag but one that does support, morally speaking, anyone in his community for nothing in return. The chink/laos monkey is a total asshole of a person but a model citizen in all the technical stuff. Boomhauer is an unintelligible guy who seemingly does nothing all day (until the ending showed his true profession) but is level-headed and pro-active in the betterment of society with small actions. Granpa is also a shit dude, bordering the psychopath label, but one who risked his neck to help the country in need (for ZOG but he didn't knew that) It's a balance and most characters were written that way, whoever thinks they were written to be hated are simply shallow.
>>1431 >king of the hill >It's one of those "avant garde" 90s pieces where you're supposed to hate the characters, and enjoy hating them. I'm not sure, I see what you mean but I did not even grow up with this crap and I didn't really hate the characters kind of like a milder more boring version B&B, I didn't hate the characters there either, they're genuinely funny. It's just shallow eccentric ridicule humor for kicks, with a touch of what you said, but still it's broadly way more innocent than say family goy or american dad or simp-sons or other sewer trash the kikes pump out these days.
>>1288 yeah i dropped the movie really fast, it sucked so much I dont even know what it was about.

Az ember tragédiája/The Tragedy of Man is a fantastic film that I've never seen discussed. It's based on the 1861 play of the same name – regarded as one of the greatest works of Hungarian literature – and follows Adam, guided by Lucifer, as he journeys through history, from humanity's inception in the Garden of Eden till its wretched end. Although the film began production in 1988, it wasn't released until 2011. After the collapse of Hungary's communist government, director Marcell Jankovics had to finance each of the film's fifteen segments individually, some of which were screened at film festivals or on Hungarian TV over the years. In fact, the end product had to be re-dubbed since the original voice actors were too old by the time the animation was complete. Jankovics actually believed that the play was better suited to the animation medium rather than the stage, which I agree with. Animation really unfetters the story and leaves it free to express itself on a grander scale, with each historical period being represented by the artstyle of the time. For example, the segment that takes place in Ancient Greece takes the form of engraved pottery, whereas the far future segment is all bold lines and part-monochrome to reflect the sterile and mechanical world. My personal favourite is the cross-hatched style in the Prague scene – aesthetics aside, it also visually represents the restricted thinking of the era, in contrast to the clean, fluid animation of the following French Revolution, reverting back to cross-hatching when said revolution fails. The film begins with the creation of the universe and the Fall of Man soon after. Having been cast out of Paradise, a prideful Adam is determined to pursue personal glory. In response, Lucifer whisks him away to Ancient Egypt – where Adam the pharaoh, having built a magnificent pyramid, has realised his desires at the cost of countless slave lives. He then reasons that equality between men is the true road to happiness, and is transported to a democratic Greece in chaos. The rest of the film follows this formula, with each of Adam's dreams being exposed as futile, and Adam himself growing older and wearier with each ensuing cycle. Eve also appears in each cycle of Adam's journey, providing him with the hope to strive on for a better outcome. In this way, she is ultimately his downfall. The ending is what really sets "Az ember tragédiája" apart, IMO. God is unfathomable, his intentions impossible to comprehend. Whether he truly has an unknowable plan for mankind, or is simply a callous creator, is left up to the viewer. >Man, I have spoken: Struggle and have faith! <The end is death; life is a struggle. And man's end is the struggle itself. And so, Adam resigns humanity to pushing the boulder up the hill until the last man's cold, miserable death. Overall, I think it's a beautiful film and I'm thankful to have seen it. Apparently the director felt the same way as he was in his 70s by the time his movie was finally released, lol. I highly recommend you check this one out.
>>1687 I love it and became very interested in the original play after watching the epic animated film. There are a couple live-action adaptations too but It's hard to imagine anything surpassing the effort by Marcell Jankovics.
>>1673 I vaguely remember watching a Russian movie about Orthodox monks being held hostage by the Mongols. I think it was called 'the Horde' or something.

Building upon >>531 here's a handy twitter account that highlights animated gems from Eastern Europe https://nitter.net/EasternOoC A few months ago the account shared this clip from the 1989 Soviet version of Treasure Island. This film has frequent (rather annoying) live action interludes where actors dressed as pirates tell the young viewers about the benefits of things like physical fitness and moral behavior. They have a well-meaning message, especially compared to current children's programming made by the Cold War victors, but as usual the Soviet propaganda has no subtlety. It's heavy-handed and out-of-place for the Treasure Island story.

Opinions on Hunter x Hunter (1999)?
One of the last of its kind in terms of drawing aesthetics and viewer reach, but other than that i cannot say for sure, we never got that in my region as we were too busy with Dragon Ball and the seasonal hit series like Digimon, Medabots and so on. Did you know in some places Yu Yu Hakusho, one of the "mandatory" viewings, got beaten real good in popularity by the relatively obscure Shaman King? I never knew the former was that popular and also i didn't suspect so few watching the latter.

I just finished a class related to film and in the process of writing what i saw there to the resources thread. You might find some of the notes ok for an introduction to themes i surely hope you guys will see >advice on things Making a quick note on what i wanted to say later about my personal journey, and similar to other anons from what i've seen, is that i found myself with crippling anxiety when doing homework after years of tense studies in college. If you come from high school and you were decent/average enough in terms of discipline you will find yourself comfortable with the initial load but if you come already from some tough shit either in college or in some other thing like reform school or a forced, timed trade you might find that you simply can't start doing anything at all, you will always find an excuse and procrastinate indefinitely, due to this also advance very little. This happened to me and thanks to this course i learned the medium hard way that it is a fear which comes unfounded when i do things nowadays after them college days, fucking hell i even suffered it when thinking about writing or posting around here. The trick is that when you do get a massive grip and start to work you will realize you are enjoying yourself and time goes fast working and learning, at least in the initial quick homeworks. Never stop working even if it just doing basic research like looking at pictures and writing a very quick note or doddle recreating your visual thoughts, and when the medium to long one works start you will already find your timing and pace of work. What i discovered that happened to me in introspection was that i felt a sudden dread about starting something because i felt it wouldn't end soon, our university works lasted months to even a year-long (along with being cross-inspected by a board of vampires) so this feeling was unconsciously prospected when i tried to do even inane assignments like doing an initial single page of a short story, which can be made in 5 minutes. I used anything to procrastinate, imageboards included, to the point that when i read every single board i was slightly interested in along with many local news articles i ended up doing stuff that i usually don't do like cooking batches for days in advance or clean my entire apartment sans bathroom, when i still didn't find force to start i decided to fap a cheeky bit to relax and there were days that i would fap 5 times in a couple of hours until i gathered strength or felt asleep which made me restart the same process the next morning It's a special kind of hell but i recently realized what it was after thinking long and hard about it as another form of procrastinating lol that's the first step to fight it. Many anons have explained similar things to this and i fully relate to them, it's silly dumb to call it PSTD but it is something that works mildly similar with milder results. The only way to overcome it :^) is knowing what it is and starting to work without thinking about it until you realize you are liking what you do. TL;DR try to enjoy researching your subjects without stressing it out and merely immerse yourself when you start doing the easy initial assignments, don't even attempt to think about when you will finish when you start doing them if you come from a previous intensive education form, you will probably enjoy it soon enough and your focus will be naturally high. And don't stop doing this, you will chew the harder works later on without realizing it, it will be a relatively smooth difficulty curve. >what to expect/learn in advance Film studies wildly vary in curriculum, it will depend on your teacher/cadre of professors. Popularly he will be either a liberal theoric (highly contemplative, subjective cinema) or a classical worker with field experience (entertaining, explicit cinema), rarely the liberal with field experience (money launderer scam artist or hidden genius) and sometimes the conservative theory teacher who goes for the tried-and-true things (the standard old time teacher). You can learn a variety of things depending on the man but i recommend doing a concise list of works you like and start thinking what you really like about them, you will probably find a bunch of common traits (both visual and narratively) and based on those you might probably want to take special interest when they appear later on but this is mostly important to understand your own tastes which build up your own style; that is one of the most important things to have and despite what many believe you can develop it from very early on, just don't force it and let it form naturally.
Some people will say that you don't need film school and that you can learn everything you need online. That line of thinking ignores the fact that filmmaking is a cooperative effort. Networking with other students in your area is an important part of film school, unless you're planning to do every future project solo.
