Thread: Wot films are you watching?
18-08-2013, 04:10 AM #1561
For some reason, the existence of this movie completely eluded me until now:
Despite all the Hollywood bravado on display, I'm really looking forward to this - somewhat ironically, because I'm already quite familiar with how the story played out. There simply is no easy bad guy/good guy angle to this narrative - let alone any room for the "down-trodden underdog takes the prize"-trope. Yeah, Hunt (barely) won the '76 Driver's Championship (and that's as much as spoiler as "the Titanic sinks at the end"). But he was in no ways the clear hero of that season - especially considering why Lauda didn't win.
I'm really curious to see if Howard manages to pull this one off. There's a lot to go wrong - but he made Apollo 13, after all.

I am watching Berserk ACT 1,never knew there were animated movies after manga. Downloading other two,hope its good.
Watched act 2 and they left out sex between guts and casca and in my opinion this is the core of guts anger towards griffith later on..How could they do this is beyond me.

Are you talking about the anime mini-series I take it? I saw that first before reading any of the manga. Only read 2-3 of them so far. Have the Dreamcast game and been meaning to get Dragon's Crown just for the Griffin/Guts armor in the game.
Never heard of Rush until now. Looks interesting. Might not get around to it in theater but definitely a Netflix watch.

Not the mini series,there are three movies now called Berserk Golden Arc 1-2-3,each is about 1 hour and 50 minutes long. Pretty good animation,and movis are also quite good but i still recommend reading manga first. Movies show gatsu beginning,how he met griffin and the hawk band,how they got their titles when helping king with their civil wars,and of course at the end the event which changes everthing. This is the part of first trilogy,producer said he is going to continue story with more movies in the future.
Read the manga man,its one of the best manga's around,top 5 for sure. At first art is kinda medicore but as it continues author gets better and better and at the end his drawings are really piece of art. Also really unique monster designs,awesome character and story..I read it already three times in several years now hah,but beware that manga is still not completed :|
Some pics from those three movies.

The Expendables 2 - If you want to watch a bunch of mostly-wrinkled, mostly-white guys shoot a bunch of people and drive jet skis into aircraft then this is the movie for you. Just be sure to turn your brain off and definitely do not ask why a car door is sufficiently armored to stop rifle rounds from pretty close range.

The World's End is brilliant, you should all go see it if you want a good laugh. I couldn't help but be reminded of the game Wasteland at the end of the movie. Good times.

I watched Shatner's "The Captains". I laughed, I was moved, I was entertained.
It's presented as a documentary about the actors that played captains in Star Trek, but actually it's Shatner talking to friends about acting, trek and life. It feels authentic and full of heart.
If you like Trek even a little I'd recommend it.

Most of you should have known of this well-received Japanese manga/anime mecha series Patlabor, including the TV series (two, including the 1st one and the rewritten 2nd one with rewritten storyline) and the two great, yet mysteriously themed movies directed by Mr. Mamoru Oshii (I guess he wrote the stories, too, since they are so Mamoru style), but not this one. It seems Bandai was not that eager to promote this movie. I recently learnt of this movie which was not as well-known as the other Patlabor works. Patlabor is about a special police unit Special Vehicle Unit established within the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Force, specifically to combat robot crimes, mostly involved a kinda robots generally referred to as "labor" for outdoor environments. Yet this movie doesn't focus on the Special Vehicle Unit, which was brought in just as supporting role.
This movie's story begins with a US military contracted Japanese cargo plane crash into the Tokyo Bay. The plane was carrying a BOW codenamed WXIII. "W" was an abbreviation of "Waste", since it was programmed to expire 13 days after its birth. Yet it survived not only the plane crash, but also beyond this designated period. WXIII was developed by a Japanese bio-research firm contracted both by the US and Japanese militaries, who would both share the technology. Yet this accident turned the whole project south and now they had to abort the project and terminate the escaped monster WXIII. To make thing worse, not only some civilians who operated in Tokyo Bay witnessed WXIII, but also WXIII started to go onshore in a few cases to murder people. Two detectives, younger Shinichiro Hata and veteran Takeshi Kusumi were tasked to investigate the cases. During the period, Shinichiro met a gorgeous women Saeko Misaki, who happened to be one of the researchers of the said bio-research firm. As you would expect, she was the key to WXIII, since she was the one who infused the monster with human cancer gene to defeat its biological self-destruction programme. The human cancer cells were from Saeko's young daughter Hitomi who died of cancer at kid age. She lost her husband in an accident, and then Hitomi within just a year. She saw WXIII as if Hitomi was still living on. Of course, she had no control over WXIII's where about, but the Tokyo Metropolitan Police had been fully mobilized to contain the situation. With the involvement of the Japanese and US militaries, how would this end?

I only watched two patlabor movies and they were really well made,kinda boring because they are about politics and shit but still it was splendid to watch,
Saw new Star Trek yesterday,i liked it. Hope that third one will be more about other civilizations then first two movies.

Watched 'Only God Forgives' with Ryan Gosling and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. Visually a pretty stunning film in terms of setup, but it suffers from style over substance and a laconic predictability. An uneven cross-pollination of Lynch & Takashi without the uncompromising darkness of the former or the actual randomness of the latter. On the positives KST was pretty impressive, as the Bullish mother but I'm hard pressed to recommend this.
