Actually, A Fistful of Dollars is based directly on Yojimbo, though Leone denies it. This has been the subject of legal action before!

I saw a clip of Clint Eastwood talking about a Fistful of Dollars and his comment on the movie was that as soon as he read the script he said "This is the Yojimbo saga.".

I haven't watched a lot of movies in recent months because my brain is just fog and I can't engage them right now. This is also that time of year when I pretty much don't see daylight for weeks at a time so that6 can make you a bit screwy.

I watched Cronos a few days ago. That ruled. If you've got HBO Max check out Cronos.

do you live in the arctic? or just work a nightshift? 🤔

No, it's just that my poo poo's all hosed and I sleep in the day time instead of at night. So in the winter I'll be waking up around the time it gets dark or when it already is. I have issues with hypersomnia too.

Have you considered sleeping at night and being awake during the day?

I have a lot of problems with this because my poo poo's hosed. I sort of have cycles where I'll be operating on normal people hours and then it shifts back and forth over and over again. Plus this time of year makes my poo poo even more hosed.

The Ten doesn't hold up as well as I remembered. Some segments are still great, the whole movie is worth it just for the part that starts with the guy who sees his neighbor bought a CAT scan machine, so he decides he needs a CAT scan machine too. And Paul Rudd is good as always. But some of the other parts fall flat, and the prison rape bit makes the prison rape bit from My Cousin Vinny look positively restrained.

I'm glad that the whole "lol prison rape" thing is finally starting to die in pop culture. It's by no means perfect now, but it's a step in the right direction. I'm always disgusted when people cheer on prison rape as some kind of retribution. I've come across entirely too many people who love the idea.

That was the first thing I thought of and I don't know how to feel about that. I can't really articulate my thoughts on it but I don't necessarily see that plot development as a positive depiction of gay romance.

It's a genuinely ballsy move when considering what kind of demographic that movie is for, but you can't put a three minute band-aid over 87 minutes of gay panic.

EDIT: HAHAHAHA, according to Wikipedia they had to replace a drums-only score recorded by Meg White for the film. I wanna see the Birdman cut of Let's Go to Prison.

Exactly.

I didn't know that and it makes me mad. Meg White rules and that would have been cool even if the movie is trash. I'd love to see her making music again but I can totally understand why that won't ever happen and I hope she's doing well wherever she is.

I can't remember who said it or whether it was even in this particular thread, but someone said they're having trouble finding the "energy" to watch movies and I'm feeling this same way recently. Watching movies at home has always been rough because it's difficult to get immersed in an environment with so much easy distraction, but now it feels even more difficult. I have almost all the major streaming services and it still feels hard to find something new to commit to watching

I am that particular broke brain. And I even have HBO Max, which makes it worse. Though I did finally watch Cronos about a week ago and that ruled. But yeah mainly I just don't feel like I can engage with movies so I don't watch them nearly as often.

This is gonna be a little transition period, as I plan to step own as CineD Mod once they're comfortable with the positions.

There's nothing in my personal life that I have to take care of; no forums drama has scared me off; I'm mentally and physically fine. I just know that, like any other elected position, there should be turnover to keep things fresh and moving in a positive, progressive way.

I have really enjoyed being CineD mod, through the bad and good. It's been an interesting, helluva run. I want to thank anyone and everyone who took the time to write me a kind or supportive PM or helped me out. I hope you continue to show the same support--or more!--to DDD and MZ.

I plan to stick around CineD, the SA forums, so there's no goodbyes needed. I plan to keep running some of the Horror Challenge threads, and I'll probably assist with trying to make Movie of the Month catch on more (this month is Crumb, and it rules!). And I'll also be around in the discord still.

Thanks for trusting me to mod for as long as I did!

I'm constantly like "oh, it's two hours I don't have the patience for two hours of a movie" and then binge 3-5 hours of a single tv show.

I do this too, but engaging with a show and a movie are two different things for me. I'm not saying that tv is the lesser medium it's not. It's a different medium. Plus if something happens with a show where I fall asleep watching it that's no big deal I just go back to it. Falling asleep during a movie is what I consider a hell worthy trespass so if I feel even remotely tired I won't watch a movie and I'm just tired all the time now. A tv show is meant to be seen in parts, a movie typically is not.

Some helpful: “I believe that fantasy in the meaning of imagination is very important. We shouldn't stick too close to everyday reality but give room to the reality of the heart, of the mind, and of the imagination.”

And some less so: “Modern life is so thin and shallow and fake. I look forward to when developers go bankrupt, Japan gets poorer and wild grasses take over.”
