[JW01 ~ 08/24/2019] There aren't many people here, but this bunker needs more content. Post something interesting that doesn't fit into other threads.

>>2141 Yeah it's fucking awful. Sadly it's a common trend of a decent video being made by some insufferable eceleb. And it's usually one good video on the entire channel otherwise filled with leftysoy.
>>2131 What program can produce those effects and animation? Nice job on the presentation but I don't know why this guy cares so much about that movie unless he has kids
>>2166 >why this guy cares so much about that movie unless he has kids Go back to plebechan.

Another good comparison video, this time about the blight of bad remasters on the example of The Matrix. https://www.yewtu.be/watch?v=KEdgmNZnLs4

Here are the Best Films of 2021 according to these sources https://www.artforum.com/print/202110/best-films-of-2021-john-waters-87205 https://www.artforum.com/print/202110/best-films-of-2021-cassie-da-costa-87211 https://www.artforum.com/print/202110/best-films-of-2021-amy-taubin-87208 https://twitter.com/cahierscinema/status/1465213184638394369 https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2021/12/10-best-movies-2021 https://www.yearendlists.com/category/movies As someone who watches very few new films, it's instructive to take the temperature of tastemaker opinion. The main problem is these lists are almost entirely "bedtime stories for adults" -- I'm more inclined to watch James Benning photographing trains for an hour or two. Admittedly I was interested in The Power of the Dog, but Amy Taubin makes the Montana western sound like an audacious feminist manifesto

I plan to watch a movie at home today and a movie at the theater on the weekend. Can I get some recs?
Not really 2021's end had some lackluster films and that's about it. I think the most important development this year was a bunch of remasters for classic films from 1899-1930. I'm going to go watch the new nostalgia cashgrab on December 16th or 17th. If normalfaghouse cinema (art house for normalfags, A24, CC, SPC, Searchlight) doesn't bother you you can always watch C'mon C'mon. Another film that took like 20 years to make using different varieties of film was recently finished but I thought it was shit. You can watch whatever though.

Grimdark Diabolik remake? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CnA2WFXLdw I randomly noticed this months-old trailer which says the film premieres in 2 days. It's been delayed a full year due to covid. They are already making a sequel.

>>2233 Somewhat accurate now that some countries allowed for euthanasia, let alone all the other more laughing aspects (soy being everywhere and modifying behavior, mass hysteria and forced social measures, massive polarization, informed and tough-spoken white/regional native men being considered the outcast from the get-go)
the irc is a ghost town, uh? Also is /film/ associated with KG? I saw their support channel on the same network.
>>2241 /film/ isn't officially associated with KG but some people are members there
>>2242 >tfw KG invite is now 240 bucks God bless the Man who gave us entry some years ago, still due to upload the subs despite saying so 6 months ago :^)
>>2243 Am I too late, anon? :( I got out of college and got a fiber internet connection only a couple months back. I've been mostly uploading to MEGA on the 'megalinks migration' forum but I still depend on public trackers and DDL sites to source stuff.

Everything is shared in either Mega or Zippyshare. Has an active uploader community.
>>2249 Oh yeah, snahp. Do you have any invites for that?
>>2250 No, mate. I think they only give out a couple to higher rank Uploaders and Donors. I believe/hope I'd be promoted to the higher rank within the next couple months. I'll let you know here when.

>>2252 Okay, thank you
>>2249 Sorry, nope.
How /comfy/ is Sweet Tooth? Trailers from netflix never show the true quality of the shows and i don't want to pirate a whole season to just watch one episode.
'Out of the Past', 1947, Jacques Tourneur, or 'The Third Man', Carol Reed, 1939? 'Lost in Translation', Sofia Coppola, 2003, or 'Millennium Mambo', Hou Hsiao-hsien, 2001? You tell me.
>>2258 I like both Out of the Past and The Third Man, but I'm giving the latter the edge because it's more distinct. Millennium Mambo is definitely way better than Lost in Translation
>>2246 Can i try? 10 in no particular order, just ones that stayed on my mind for one reason or another: Il Grande Silenzio Days of Heaven Aguirre Chimes at Midnight Andrei Rublev The Color of Pomegranates Legend of the Mountain Throne of Blood The Human Condition Battles Without Honor and Humanity sinahemomi -@- gmail (.) com >>2258 The Third Man i would say the same as >>2259, it has a more particular style of cinematography like the heavy use of german angles and a more refined noir sense, along with still decent narrative. I don't recall Lost in Translation that much as i saw it long ago but Millennium Mambo is much superior in terms of camera work, all natural shot by one of the best in his field with club fancy lightings making a prominent appearance... the story itself is not that much interesting due to the viewer feeling not that much sympathy towards the shallow protag girl but still that kinda can be said too with Lost yet it's not a snore either due to its ambiguous nature towards some characters (suspected triad boss, suspected pusherman, suspected pimp, random jap dude who got laid with something above his league). I think with these the main difference is that Hou filmed Mambo as an exercise towards the viewer being a "realistic witness" (characters being usually always at non-personal distances, introspection sequences being only about the lass and her pink thinking rather than logical skills like a dreamy girl would recall something) while Lost in Translation is more towards a normal narrative a movie would do but with more monologues.
>>2246 I actually asked on the KG IRC to be invited and offered to translate films in 3 different languages, but no one responded :( Here's 10 of my favorites. Gertrud Scattered Clouds The Quiet Man Demons Heroic Purgatory Nostos Tie Xi Qu Khrustalyov, My Car! The Unchanging Sea Bound for the Fields... Amd my email: joeksdi -@- gmail (.) com
>>2279 There's also the Drama Obamanesque, a term a couple of us used time ago to refer to most oscar/prize bait americans did post-2007 about the highly fantasized struggles of afro-americans. You can also go back in time and look at the original meaning of Blockbuster and its standards, a genre/form of working which was what killed the New Hollywood era of almost or full-on auteur workflow many directors had in the 70's.
>>2279 Indiana Jones will pass the baton to some wommyn soon
>>2279 What is 'Burger King Kids Club'? Is it some euphemism for autistic kid?

>>90 >Szürkület was restored by the Hungarian National Film Fund >>94 >Good news: I've reached out to them and they are gonna launch a VOD site soon with all the restored films. If you're still around, what happened? There's still no upgrade for Szürkület. It's interesting to compare that film to It Happened in Broad Daylight which was an earlier adaptation of the same story. That film is less moody and ambiguous than Szürkület. It includes additional story elements like the detective living at a gas station as a ploy to catch the murderer.
Anons we're dying out, need some plan.
>>2299 It's getting very tricky, honestly i've seen many places losing numbers or simply not interacting as before. I think everywhere not the big sites is suffering, centralization made the activity-addicts stick with anything in terms of quality and the small sites do need some activity to maintain themselves. Hell, even ZOGbook lost tons of numbers in favor of WA and IG, which abruptly focused on chat and stories rather than its original photography-oriented gig. The only option i can think of after trying some tactics is just plain shilling in other sites, the advantages are still on this site but most everyone prefer going to the numbers, after all most everyone likes the feedback but perhaps the problem is most people are becoming more passive. I don't know anymore, i stopped coming as constantly because i got into the waveslaving to feed myself after getting my gibs canned due to the pandemic.
>>2292 They're probably in the process of selecting a distribution company to release it on physical media or even a theatrical run. Kino Lorber recently announced a Miklos Jancso boxset so I believe there are a few companies trying to acquire rights to them.
