Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.


Last GenChat

It's a new year, so it's time for a new GenChat. Talk about random garbage in here.

Some rules:
1) If there is a thread about a movie you want to talk about, post in that thread, not here.
2) Don't use this as a place to shittalk other posters and other threads/forums.
3) Don't be a dickhead

Here's a list of a bunch of people who don't post here any more and some who do on Twitter.


Here's hoping 2017 doesn't suck as much as 2016 (it will).

I watched Nine Lives and it seemed like it might be an okay family film.

Without that caveat, it just as bad as you imagine.

Maybe it was yes the state of mind I was in when I watched it, but it seemed pretty buck wild to me.

Of course it's based on Kafka's Metamorphosis in which a successful middle aged man learns to be a better father after he is turned into a bug and hilarity ensues.

There should be a reversal where a bug transforms into a human and becomes a successful businessman

Sharing YouTube clips from Godzilla movies to keep my two-year-old nephew occupied and I'd forgotten A) how many of these fights are just monsters taking turns blasting each other with lasers and B) 80s era Godzilla probably isn't the best stuff for two-year-olds

The Heisei series was particularly bad for this, yeah. Koichi Kawakita, the SFX director, didn't like the way the monsters in old movies fought like pro wrestlers, and the suits tended to be bulkier and less mobile than the ones in the older films, so it pretty much degenerated into "beam wars".

All it comes down to is this: I feel like shit, but look great.

Show him Gigan slashing Godzilla's arm open then bashing his head in.

So much blood.

Actually my kiddos love this one dude's channel because he makes music videos to specific kaijus. Heres Rodan:

I thought King Kong vs Godzilla would be relatively tame but there's a long segment where Kong keeps getting rocks dropped on his head. Also it became clear at some point that he thought KK was Curious George

I like when Orga tries to eat Godzilla and then Godzilla starts charging up a beam from inside of his weird mouth and Orga's face goes "I've made a horrible mistake" then he explodes.

Yojimbo is so good. My first movie was a terrible David Blaine special that someone at the party put on. He poked an icepick through his arm multiple times and it was extremely gross.
