Watched the new Terminator. Stupid as fuck but the new bad guy Terminator was pretty cool.

Aye, I liked big Carl. Those bits were funnier than intended I think.

I haven't seen it

then maybe keep your dimwitted opinion to yourself?

Nothing dimwitted about calling out the film industry for the shit it's been doing for decades. I'm not the first one with this opinion, and I certainly won't be the last. Ari Aster is a Jewish director. Sweden is in strange political times, and there are groups of "nationalist" types rising up around the country. What does the film industry often do in these times? This exact kind of shit. If Alex Jones is all you can utilize as a reference then you aren't seeing the bigger picture.

i am literally laughing aloud at my work. you figure E.T. was a ZOG plot to make me eat reese's pieces?

Midsommar is suspect to me as something a Jewish director would create to make Scandinavian pre-Christian ideas look EVIL in a strange political climate. I haven't seen it, and I doubt people are dumb enough to link it with the reality of Scandinavian history, but I feel like watching it would be like cutting my balls off in some way.

Midsommar is terrible, but man this is about the dumbest thing I’ve read on this board.


Hahaha I know!! It took all my willpower to not reply to this last night since I've taken shots at this guy before. Man I wish I could talk to him in person to get the full scope of bigotry. I'm inviting everyone to check out his last posts and decide for yourself if he's a troll (or just a scholar of scandinavian history who is able to sense movies without watching them?) LOL

Product placement is another matter, and certainly has influenced people over the years. It's not much different than any commercial, but now a lovable character is doing it! Obviously some films don't have the immediate underlying politically charged message in the same way, and are just mindless entertainment. One of the main characters in Midsommar is named CHRISTIAN. I wonder what that might mean? A Christian being exposed to EVIL PAGAN rituals. The way you respond just tells me that you bow to the idols of cinema, as if cinema can only be entertainment, and nothing more. Meanwhile I can list numerous films, television shows, and documentaries in which thousands of people immediately felt were some kind of propaganda.

Nazi Germany used film as propaganda, the USA has used it as propaganda since before we all were born, the Soviets used film as propaganda. Films don't simply come out at random all of the time, there is frequently some dumbed down, warped view of something current in the social sphere in films, and stupid people gobble it up and ask "is this really a Pagan festival?".

Edit: Ari Aster is some guy that likely has no idea of Swedish culture other than generic (already largely debunked) ideas he's seen without questioning. It's a completely mindless film that doesn't say anything. It's utterly useless.

...I bet you can't.

Films don't simply come out at random all of the time, there is frequently some dumbed down, warped view of something current in the social sphere in films, and stupid people gobble it up and ask "is this really a Pagan festival?".

Regimes using film as propaganda medium is irrelevant in this discussion. It doesn't prove your point (that this movie is propaganda) at all.

Edit: Ari Aster is some guy that likely has no idea of Swedish culture other than generic (already largely debunked) ideas he's seen without questioning.

You can't know that at all. You don't know his intention behind making the movie and depicting the imagery and story the way he chose. Also I'd be curious about any articles you know reporting on a mass amount of people being outraged by this portrayal of paganism which they perceive as accurate depiction of history. If your opinion is not based on reports like this it's just your personal feelings talking and nobody here cares about those.

It's a completely mindless film that doesn't say anything. It's utterly useless.

The fact that you're still arguing about what a shitty propaganda movie this is while admitting not to have seen it in the first place is absolutely comical and makes you seem like a complete fool.

Recently watched Richard Fleischer‘s The Boston Strangler from 1968 and loved it. Gave me the same claustrophobic and bleak feeling as his 10 Rillington Place from 3 years later. Highly recommend 10 Rillington Place as well, as it is an even better film. Fleischer was prolific and his filmography runs the full range of genre film, making the lonely and cold tone he’s able to achieve in these two (and I imagine others I haven’t seen) all the more impressive. Also of note is the frank discussion of sexual violence, blunt homophobia of the Boston police force, and surreal stylization which crops up from time to time. Heavy use of split screen. Excited to dig deeper into his films of this period - the Wait Until Dark-ish seeming See No Evil, Mandingo, and the organized crime and cop dramas.

I figure because it's popular I'll ask:

Did anyone here have any interest whatsoever in seeing Joker? Everyone is making this huge deal about it being representative of psychological bullying and physical abuse towards someone leading them into the descent of madness, and committing violent acts like the Dayton shooter or whatever.

I think what is odd about it though, is that it took Hollywood to make a really stupid film about a clown (everyone that admires the film was making fun of mentally ill teens dressing as Joker and Harley Quinn just yesterday) from an overdone comic book series, in a way that isn't actually the original story, for people to have this conversation, lol. To me it's just Hollywood banking on the boom in "incel culture", and in the increase in discussions about bullying, and making everyone to feel sorry for these people so that Hollywood can profit. Some ridiculous people are even saying that Joker represents the H'WHITE man in his own country these days. Some madman that has a feminine laugh because he had his gonads cut off, and so everything is CLOWN WORLD. When it comes to that then you know society is legitimately screwed for good this time.

Power Electronics has been dealing with these subjects for decades. Hell, just watch ANY documentary on ANY serial killer on youtube. Every single one of those killers were sexually abused, or treated like shit as a kid. If the real discussion is to be had on the psychology of the matter, why on Earth would a film like Joker be the one that finally breaks the ice?

Still, did anyone see it?




First film I’ve seen in the theaters in ages, a friend had some tickets that needed to be used and it was the only one that seemed even remotely interesting.

I don’t even understand why it had to be a comic book movie. It was the same story we’ve seen before all over again, loser gets bullied and abused, then finally snaps and does something terrible. It’s not a bad movie but also certainly not worth the hype, either.

Also, I absolutely hated Midsommar. I’ll give it some credit tho: unlike many other films I disliked, it stayed with me for days after. But the more I thought about it, the less I liked it. I didnt like Hereditary either, but at least I didn’t hate it, I just thought it was overrated and overhyped.

TICK

night of heavy drinking and whatnot so I will have to re-watch this, but it was a real film experience. ill give it 5 bags of popcorn and throw in a condom punctured several times with a hypodermic needle!
serious must watch for fans of z-movie and sov weirdness, but this one is truly unique in that field. Beyond just sleazy, really well paced humor with what I could consider (some) really true to life acting based on my time hanging out with druggies when I was in high school, even though the social service the film revolves around is pretty absurd.

THE JAIL: THE WOMEN'S HELL

grade Z shot on video trash by Bruno Mattei. The first hour is standard WIP fare: showers, beatings by the guards, lots of nudity, etc. but the last half hour turns into a gorefest in the jungle with hootin' an' hollerin' men hunting female inmates then mutilating them when they're caught.  This is a dvd on Intervision/Severin; I may have to grab another Mattei film soon. I really wish WOMEN'S CAMP 119 would get a release!

I've also watched RED RIDING: 1970 and 1980 this week. Tonight, I'll watch the third film. I've seen all 3 films before & I think I've read the book. Definitely recommended if you're into sex crime-themed films. Despite being made for television, I think, these films are quite intense and grim.

Is this actually renamed Women's Prison Massacre & part of the Emanualle series?
was once banned from Youtube for uploading that Bruno Mattei movie long ago...
long before any great purge era

not a comic book fan in the slightest, but I've watched the first 3 Avengers movies (going to watch Endgame tonight) pretty cool for that they are. had to read up on the characters to understand the in-fighting and whatnot, I figured they were just good guys who fought bad guys

Just enjoyed the Arrow blu ray reissue of "Hitchin Hike to Hell "
Despite the upgrade it retains its grubbiNess and lof itself charm.
