This feels like a return to classic British comedy that's been absent a few years. Somewhere between PhoneShop and Green Wing. Multicultural London stuff but plenty of dry white humour too.

>It is a film about a martial arts tournament where no martial arts tournament ever takes place.

I think you hit the nail on the head, there.

They also missed a trick with the Cole character. Even a bit of lip service could have given the film a fun theme about contrasting modern rough-and-tumble MMA with ancient and mysterious martial arts. Instead he just sort of blithely accepts everything.

The superpowered melee was too Marvel-esque, things become so much less interesting for me when people turn into darting CGI figures.

Not to keep banging the drum, but that first scene was just the perfect balance. Really well co-ordinated martial arts and stuntwork, wonderfully shot, inventive with props, with just a touch of mysticism and strange supernatural powers on top.

Bi-Han was also effectively the main villain, and it was amazing. Why not keep Shang Tsung as a shadowy sorcerer pulling the strings behind the scenes? Why don't we just capture glimpses of an old wizened man becoming younger as he feeds off the souls of fallen combatants? Have Bi-Han bring his assassinated victims to something that looks like the crypt keeper? It's a film for Christ's sake, we're meant to fear the Big Bad, be creative, don't just have him stand there like a lemon behind walls of electricity.

Yeah, he's vulgar and gives the film a lot of personality. His winking to the audience gets a bit tiresome at points ("u wot m8 u shoot fire out of ur hands???") but the actor gets the spirit of the character perfectly. Even better than the 1995 one, I'd say.

23645 Anyone watch Dark?
It's one of the most impressive series I've ever seen. And I say that as a person on the internet.

3 seasons carefully planned and tied up with no stretch, writing with a concerted effort to make things as tight as possible, a novel view of time travel which I've not seen in anything else (future dictates past), and some incredibly immersive casting alongside a wonderful soundtrack.

The story starts with children going missing within a small yet large town, and the suicide of the father of the protagonist. These events drive the mystery, and it's quite meaty. More importantly, it's very satisfying. It is very prone to spoilers, but mainly due to perspective - it is very interesting to watch it again with full knowledge, and quite rewarding. And for that reason I'm really looking forward to ignoring it for 10+ years and going again. I'm watching it for a second time in a few months, and it's nice to have forgotten some details but still know what to look for.

The official website is great, though I didn't find it until I'd finished. It will ask you what episode you are on, and only provide you with information you've already viewed (and forgotten).

The flaws you may notice are the moody tone of dialogue with oddly long pauses, and also a few contrivances to drive the plot, such as miscommunications. It is not perfect, but it is quite unique.

My only problem with this show is that I picked it up a few episodes in with the missus, and without even knowing fully what went on, I already sussed out exactly where the plot was going. Quite predictable use of that sort of time travel plot device, but they pulled it off perfectly, I'll give them that.

There was an episode of Bernard's Watch where Bernard had stopped time whilst he was on one of his little escapades, trying to catch a rabbit that was on the loose or something like that, and when he unfroze time several hours later it turned out that the chicken his mum had been roasting was burnt to a crisp because it had continued to cook during all of the hours it was frozen.

This has always stayed with me because I thought it was so fucked up. Imagine you've just got into a red hot bath to relax and next thing you know your tender flesh is peeling away from the bone and congealing around you because, completely unbeknownst to you, you've actually been boiled alive for several hours whilst some little scamp has frozen time so he can be at two different friend's birthday parties at the same time or whatever. Fucked up, I tell you.

Maybe if I whirled it around like a discus thrower, but I suspect that the loose spuds would dissipate a lot of the energy. It'd be a nasty knock, but I wouldn't bank on it as a knockout blow. I'd be more confident with one big spud in a football sock.

Do you have any anime recommendations?

This year I got into the habit of watching Natsume's Book of Friends before bed. I've found anime in general to be good for helping you unwide when you're otherwise entirely busy with work. Natsume seems to tick the right boxes for me in providing escapism with self-contained stories that make you think. Previously I've enjoyed Mushishi and Kino's Journey for the same reasons of relaxation.

I should say that another anime that I'm watching right now is Re:Zero. It does have cliché elements being an anime about a NEET transported into a fantasy world but there's an interesting idea around how fucked up it would be to live with a particular superpower.

Spoiler for what that is ruins episode 1 but I assume you will have watched it already if the above were enough: When he dies he returns to a save point. Every 3-4 episodes is him facing off against some challenge and mostly having to watch all his friends die over and over until he gets it right.

>ACCA:13-ku Kansatsu-ka (not the Insurance company) - A bright and colourful web of political intrigue in !NOTAmerica. Everyone is fucking beautiful for some reason.

I really enjoyed this. I'd say its really more a political thriller in !NOTJapan if it never formed a unitary state because you have elements that fit strongly with the past and present of Japanese monarchy and an underlying allegory to the Japanese succession debate.

I'd say Golden Kamuy is probably the best tv show running at the moment. Overall its a historical western adventure set in Hokkaido shortly after the Russo-Japanese war with plenty of comedy, cooking and learning about Japanese aboriginals mixed in.

The story follows competing groups on a hunt for hidden Ainu gold - the protagonists being a Japanese veteran and a Ainu girl with blue eyes but you slowly get a backstory for every reoccurring character. I've found myself opening up wikipedia to learn about various events described in the series which is a fascinating look at Japan's expansion into the wild Northern Islands to secure control, the short lived Republic of Ezo and Russo-Japanese strategic competition in the area.

Also to find the gold they have to use maps tattooed on people's skin. A proper good romp.

Should say that you can watch a good portion of anime for free on Crunchyroll and with adblock you don't even have to watch ads. The catalogue doesn't have everything but I'd say there's more hours of content on a free platform than you'd find on Netflix.

23506 Adam Curtis
Well, it seems we have a new Adam Curtis series that will be shown from mid-February.


>It covers a wide range – including the strange roots of modern conspiracy theories, the history of China, opium and opiods, the history of Artificial Intelligence, melancholy over the loss of empire and, love and power. And explores whether modern culture, despite its radicalism, is really just part of the new system of power.

The greater part of me really does like Adam Curtis and sees a great deal of depth to the ideas he presents, but the lesser part of me feels he's been saying the same thing for decades. Looking forward to this anyway, it should be interesting looking at how he explains how we've been hoodwinked into believing symptoms to be root causes again.

Up to the final episode which I will save for later, like the otherlad, I've been finding quite a bit of the series really quite funny with regards to the unintended consequences of the last 200+ years of Western history, and even found it funny with the idea that the language and forms of power themselves are universal and blind - nobody is free from its grip, no matter how much fervour in system x or y they have. It reminded me of his series All Watched Over when it turned out that hippy communes just ended up being cults of personality and the enforcement of one will above everybody else's.

If I didn't laugh, I'd cry etc. etc.

He did repeat a lot of what he's already covered in films like Century of the Self, and All Watched Over as otherlad mentions, but I suppose for someone new coming in, that background context is necessary to set up the rest.

I get the feeling people like us who are familiar with the concepts in his older material might not be the target audience this time, and maybe he was aiming more at was today's highly radicalised Rudgwick/Twitter/Etc politic kids, who often fail to realise they're retreading ground that has been thoroughly trod before. The point seemed largely to be that every time this radical rhetoric comes around, they usually aren't the first, and nor will they be the last, to think they've cracked it, and ultimately only end up assimilated and subverted by the existing structures of power.

But this was an illusion.

I sort of get the idea that this series is considerably more meta than his previous ones - there are a hell of a lot of half-made allusions between the more visible and large-scale looting going on in Russia and China and what's going on in the UK and US where the looting of the economy by a few is more formally legalised and backed up with our states' views on what is acceptable and what is not. Even further, I would like to add, and I'm sure Adam would probably agree with this to some extent - the entire series is just a narrative thread that he has plucked out to help describe how and where things are going, so is he ultimately any better or worse off than a bog standard conspiracy theorist?

Amidala didn't kidnap Anakin and spend a decade grooming him to become the king of Naboo, in fairness.

I'm intrigued by your theory of the prequal trilogy being the story of Anakin's repressed homosexuality and his lashing out at the world. The dots all join up so well from the monastic anti-sexual repression of the Jedi to Palpatine being a bit of a noncey old man.

As for the Twilight Zone episode I just put it down to being a bad episode. There's different attitudes of the time at work but you can also see reflections of classic fairytale themes involving Prince Charming rescuing the Cinderella - and which young girls probably like (not that I would know of course). It might've been a stronger story if the original draft was in a half-hour format as I suspect what we have is two half-formed ideas stuck together.

Watching the Amazon show The Man In The High Castle, which has little to do with the original book other than setting and character names (although they don't match their book counterparts).

The most interesting thing is it was clearly edited as in Internet TV Show. Each episode is a) designed to be watched quite closely together -- there are no re-establishing shots, you get about 10 seconds of the last episode usually before it continues completely dry; and b) the intro sequence is the best part of 90 seconds long, which seems to be like it was intended to be skipped.

The intro sequence does need an award for slowest human performance of a song, though. Christ it drags. Also it's the Dad's Army intro, complete with triangle-headed lines moving across a map.

Let's get all femanista for a bit, lads. I was just scrolling down the list of IMDb's Top 250 - which are still all excellent films - and I was struck by just how male the list is. You have to go all the way down to The Silence of the Lambs before you get a lone female protagonist, and even then more people remember that film for Anthony Hopkins than Jodie Foster.

So I want to broaden my horizons - what are your favourite films about and starring women? I'm talking about ones that are mainly women in the cast - don't just say the Alien films.

For instance I liked The Help. I found Little Women mediocre, though.

I'm loving the entertainment nuggets per hour system of grading entertainment.

But what about suspense scenes? They become less suspenseful at speed. And what of action scenes? They move often move too quickly to really appreciate what's happening.

I guess you need to incorporate variable rate x E in your calculations. Maybe we can make a proposal to Netflix about constructing a variable video speed controller that adjusts videos to the optimum speed for a viewer for any given moment based on level of enjoyment from previous videos watched.

I find drama/comedy/entertainment in general just doesn't work sped up for me. (If it's so badly directed or edited that I need to change the speed, it's rubbish that's not worth watching to begin with)

But factual stuff, product reviews, etc. on youtube I'm regularly speeding things up, to around 1.25 to 1.75x depending on what sort of thing is going on and how fast the person is speaking.
I struggle with 2x speed, really just because of the audio quality making it to much effort to listen to.

OP here, I saw Three Billboards the other day. It's a very good film, but I as I suspected I certainly wouldn't include it in this thread. The protagonist is a woman but all the principal supporting characters are men, as might be expected when it's about a woman's relationship with the police.

What an odd conclusion to come to from watching half an episode. It is actually nothing like that.I personally enjoyed it, though it is oddly paced. It's worth a watch imo and better than most stuff I've seen from Netflix.

HOWEVER, if you're going to watch one thing on Netty, then I'd recommend Unabomber. It's a really addictive show about a good-guy obsessive trying to profile the Unabomber from his cryptic letters and actions. Really watchable.

I saw Make Up when the Cinemas first reopened and it was a excellent kitchen sink horror/thriller. Not sure whereabouts it is available at the moment.

For something a bit more indie, try and track down some films by a guy called John Williams. He makes some really good horror comedies, The Slayers and Crispy's Curse are excellent. I think they have US DVDs, not sure about UK releases, but he'll probably sell you copies directly. He has a new anthology coming out soon too.

I watched this last night before bed and it was so good I decided to bump this old thread because it's basically the perfect definition of a hidden gem.

If you've ever stayed up watching some rubbish TV documentary about the Rendlesham Forest incident then this might be your new favourite film. Otherwise I'd recommend it because of how well shot, written and edited it all is. It's not Signs or anything though, just to make that clear. Now one fights a monster with a stick. Most of the people who worked on it or starred in it don't even have Wikipedia pages, so again, the definition of a hidden gem.

That's definitely me so I gave it a watch based on that alone. Solid recommendation, good shout ladm8.

Reminded me a bit of Blair Witch in the way nothing really happens for most of it, except much better at building the tension and intrigue because there was actually a coherent narrative. Incredibly focussed "hygge" for fans of the classic Roswell, abductions, and crop circles type folklore.

I meant to recommend that a few weeks back but I was banned. I absolutely loved it, and some of the camera shots were amazing (they just used a remote-controlled car with a cheap gimbal for the camera). I would advise watching it with subtitles, especially at the start of the film, as the fast-paced slang-heavy 50's American chatter can go over your head at times.

I've been watching loads of foreign films recently, and I was struck by something I find quite interesting. When I watch a foreign film in a Germanic language like Dutch or German, it feels impactful to me because the intonation, tone, sentence pacing and structure of the actors feels quite similar to English, which makes their performances feel about as compelling as they would be if they were in English.

When I watch something in French, Spanish, or Italian, it often feels like a word salad of peculiar sounds that are either lacking in distinct emotions, or are over emphasising one particular emotion. Spanish and Italian are a slurry of fast paced words and French is a blur of people making "bleugh" sounds.

Is it just me or have any of you noticed the same thing? I used to think that English kind of sat "in between" Romance and Germanic languages, but I now realise it's firmly a Germanic language with a bunch of loanwords thanks to our Norman enslavement.

>Jeremy Clarkson Rejects Offer To Return To BBC After Asked By Director-General To “Come Home”

>“He was saying the other day, ‘Oh, come home’. But the truth is, you’d struggle on the BBC now. It’s so unbelievably right on. You just couldn’t say anything which I make my living from saying.” In the same interview, he accused the BBC of being very limited in their show production, and having a closed mind for new ideas. He also slated the BBC by stating that they’d freeze out presenters that aren’t politically correct.
>“I think it is becoming very, very restrictive, which is a shame, because it [the BBC] is a good idea,” he said.


Looks like he won in the end.

I think he won ages ago when Amazon gave them £100m.

Am I a cynic if I think he's just saying that because it's on-brand to bash the BBC for being PC, rather than because he's genuinely fearful his 'outrageous' popular-'unpopular'-opinion-but's might be censored by a snide intern with pink hair and a grudge against the jigaboo-gollywog minstrel jazz hour?

Like everything Clarkson, it's a bit of both. His public persona is just an extreme version of his private one, as far as I can tell. He's probably not the biggest fan of the BBC, but it fits his show persona and his newspaper opinion piece writing to call them communist totalitarians.

We only have his word for it this happened, and it was probably just some idle words of regret from his best mate over a pint, rather than a formal apology from the legal and disciplinary team and fullthroated cheer from the battered production crew. I don't think the BBC want him back.

23326 Pepe the Frog: Feels Good Man

This is a BBC4 Storyville documentary on the background and evolution of Pepe the Frog. It's done in a very straight, documentary way, but is a fascinating look at what becomes a meme, but also NEET culture and the people who make up 4chan.

I found it interesting.

i started this argument before watching (>>23331 and >>23334 were me) and i must say that after watching it does actually explain a lot! so fair enough.

also a song they used early on - living in hell by cobra man - is an absolute banger so thanks for that.
