I remember the local video store when I was a kid had a copy of Deepstar Six and the cover terrifying me. Never saw the actual movie but from what I heard it's not as good as what scared kid me imagined it would be like.

Deepstar Six isn't the worst, but it's not bad. I'd strongly recommend the Peter Weller movie Leviathan though if you haven't seen it. Basically Alien but underwater with really good sets/strong cast/etc. Not nearly as good as Alien of course, but it's drat solid.

Contact is perfect it doesn't need no remake...!

They should remake Freejack instead.

I had no idea I wanted a remake of Freejack until now. Whatever would be done with such a thing, my only need would be that it sits on the shelf for about four years before coming out.

Same on a Contact remake, why? Will they get whoever the current president is to "cameo" in it again?

Make Hackers 2

This reminds of the odd confusion that happened in the 90s/early 00s due to film piracy. The Hackers soundtrack was so popular that two followup albums were made over the next couple of years, called Hackers 2 and Hackers 3 respectively. Shortly after, the unrelated film Antitrust came out, and it was released in some countries with some form of the word "hacker" in it. Long story short between that and the soundtrack people thought Hackers was a series of films and would end up viewing Antitrust by mistake because people would level bootleg DVDs of Antitrust "Hackers 3" or whatever and it would be listed on those old file sharing sites as Hackers 2 or Hackers 3, which would lead to an amazing level of not what you were expecting if you wanted something like Hackers.

Jena Malone, who played the young Eleanor Arroway in Contact, is now 35, which is how old Jodie Foster was when the 1997 movie came out, so they should just get her for the remake. That way they can simply reuse that beautiful into-the-mirror tracking shot.

They should make a set in the present day sequel where she plays Foster and McConaughey's kid.

Can't wait to see Bale play a generic villain covered in so much makeup that he might as well be a stunt guy.

I hope he plays like the High Evolutionary or Uatu or Ikaris or some other character like that just so we can see Bale ultra serious his way through a Jeff Goldblum in Ragnarok caliber costume. It'd be perfect.

I just read the plot of The Great Silence and its incredible, like a person setting out to give you the bleakest tale possible

The Great Silence is in fact my favorite western ever and imo one of the best movies ever made, I strongly recommend everyone in this thread track it down and see it in some way. Sergio Corbucci has said MLK Jr. and Malcom X both being assassinated is what inspired him to make it. It's insane to me that the guy that directed The Great Silence and Django also directed some incomphrensibly bad stuff like The White, The Yellow, and the Black/Samurai and stuff like that.

I'd try to get it with the Italian dub with English subtitles. The English dub is very accurate but some of the voice choices just feel kind of off.




Folks here might also dig Four of the Apocalypse, one of three westerns directed by Lucio Fulci.




Also after you watch The Great Silence, look up the alternate ending on YouTube because a sad last ditch attempt to try to get it released in the US. It ended up not officially coming out in the US until 2001!

Fulci also did Massacre Time, right? I saw a clip from that where a guy runs a cart into a barrier behind which three dudes are shooting at him, and once the cart hits the barrier it launches him over it and he shoots all three in the back

Yeah he did three, Massacre Time, Four of the Apocalypse, and Silver Saddle. The latter is probably the weakest and least interesting, but also has some good squibs and a couple of decently shot shootouts. I'd say they're all worth checking out on some level.

Basebf555 posted:

Yea I posted about The Great Silence in the Western thread a few weeks ago, I just recently saw it for the first time. There are plenty of Westerns that have relatively bleak endings but nothing like that. It was seriously impressive actually, the nerve required to go through with that ending.

It's so loving good, also refreshing to see a genuinely leftist movie, I mean the the "bandits" everyone's so worried about are unarmed poor people. I mean they're Mormons also but still, like, drat.

Everyone should watch that movie, it's so well shot, incredible soundtrack, performances are all great, and the writing is pretty drat good too and it's paced really well which are two things you don't necessarily expect from a spaghetti western.

The original cut of Cobra was like three hours long but they cut it down to 85 minutes which is amazing because it means they cut so much out but everyone agreed to keep the part where Stallone walks out with a giant novelty burger and says your burger's ready.

Strongly recommend people check out the unofficial Cobra remake series from Italy, Black Cobra starring Fred Williamson and its two sequels (there's a fourth one but it's composed of like test shots and alternate takes of the previous movies with like ten minutes of new footage).

You can tell Guy Ritchie was limited by Disney when making Aladdin, because the movie barely attempted to make Aladdin into a cockney street fighter.

We finally saw this, what a weirdly broken, unfocused feeling movie, was a legit fascinating failure to us. Doubt I'll ever watch it again but it reminded us of Rise of Skywalker in how overproduced and oversupervised it clearly had to have been. Though contrary to what the trailers indicated Will Smith's Genie was the only good thing about it instead the misfire we were expecting.

The one major common premise among Mario games is the damsel-in-distress mission Mario is on to save the Princess and they should probably not do that. What might be tough, but really fun if they could pull it off, would be incorporating not just the classic Mario Bros.-style games but stuff like Dr. Mario, Mario Kart, Luigi's Mansion, etc.

Just have him be a Dr. straight up who goes go-karting as a hobby with all his friends and like because he's awesome even though he changed careers have someone mention that he still pays into union dues to support his fellow plumbers. Luigi is a weirdo who ends up getting them both into all kinds of crazy poo poo with ghosts in a mansion/whatever. At some point they get separated and he can exclaim "Mario is missing!"

Ive never played a metroid game but you could probably start with samus having a team and one new guy is the audience insert, and he has to hide in some tech room in the middle as she goes alone in her special armor and he talks her thru it on the radio, rhen he has to fight off somethjng on his own and loses the radio so they each have individual final fights

The tech person's final fight has to be against one of the really basic large insect enemies Samus can kill just by walking into them in the games and he has to use every little improvised trick and thing in the communications room to stop it intercut with Samus' confrontation some massive Mother Brain/whatever the story's final ultimate foe is.


The best Metroid movie would basically be Fata Morgana but with scenes of Samus shooting aliens in between the parts where it shows natural beauty set to Mayan creation myth recitations or Herzog talking about whatever.

Waluigi is the by far the easiest Mario guy to make a movie out of, he comes with a personality (charmingly horrible) clear narrative goal (obtaining money) and the mechanics of the game (dumb physical comedy) translate well into film.

Cap has been worthy for a long time but Mjolnir has a tendency to be loyal to just Thor unless there's some kind of crisis or cause. It's part of why the mind-of-its-own development is easy to accept because its behaviour over the years suggested something else going on (unless Odin was micromanaging it the whole time).

Maybe in Ultron when it almost started to move slightly as soon as it did Captain thought of doing something unworthy with it thereby instantly making him unworthy.

Pitch Black is legit flames. The Chronicles of Riddick is 100% stupid and 100% awesome. Riddick 3 doesn't go in either direction hard enough, so it's an amusing enough watch but it feels inconsequential. The absolute best part of the movie is the scumbag rapist mercenary getting the poo poo thrashed out of him at every opportunity, ending with him getting his head chopped in half at the nose. Get wrecked, creep.

I was very disappointed in the third one's lack of confidence in itself after the first act.

Gadget reminds me of Inspector Clouseau a lot, they even wear similar outfits.

Definitely no coincidence, Gadget has a mustache in the pilot and everything. Part of why they removed it was because they figured it was too brazen.

Also the original series was a French-American co-production and the character was co-created by two French dudes and an ex-Hanna Barbera story writer, which makes the Clouseau/Get Smart combo make a lot more sense.

God of War 1 (PS2) had this cool possible sequel extras with ideas the studio had for spin-offs. One was Kratos's EVIL! brother coming back for devil revenge. The other was a squad of Seal Team 6 mofos discovering the corpse of Cronos and venturing into the temple to fight a bunch of mythological monsters.

I still wish we got either of the God of War III versions that didn't happen where Krato teams up with like Baldur/etc. sort of Kratos-equivalent folks from each world mythology and they go on a planetary road trip destroying every pantheon together or the one where Kratos manipulates a few gods from each religion into fighting each other and in the ensuing chaos with them so distant from being physically around on earth Kratos convinces various important folks that the gods don't exist causing them to cease to exist because not enough people believe them and then it was going to end with Jesus being born and monotheism becoming more mainstream.

Either would have been way better than the God of War III we got.

There's no point in there being a Metroid movie unless it has sufficient easter eggs to show how it's in the same universe as F-Zero, Kirby, Kid Icarus, and StarFox as is often shown in the games.

I haven't seen it but from what i've heard the directors cut of KoH is meant to be one of the best films of the 21st century and should be in the same conversation as things like The New World, There Will Be Blood and other epics. I haven't seen it partially because of that level of praise and the original was so poor it makes me side eye it.

I don't know if it's one of the best films of the century, but it's extremely good and like 100x better than the theatrical version.

A lot of stuff that feels idiotic or out of nowhere in the theatrical version also makes a lot more sense when the characters are actually developed enough/given enough background that you can follow why who is doing what too. Like in the theatrical Orlando Bloom just like, out of nowhere personally invents anti-siege weaponry towards the end in like a week. In the director's cut it's more clear that he was literally a wartime engineer and working on Jerusalem's infrastructure longterm in general is like why he was being recruited in the first place, which he attempts to do some good with earlier with setting up better water circulation and stuff. Like it just feels much more coherent and focused.
