I would really be interesting in making a Kickstarter or other publicity campaign based off getting Tarantino and Nolan to collaborate, and doing some sort of plot combo of Brick and Only God Forgives. With the soundtrack of Drive.

Who is with me?

I've always wanted to be apart of this thread, but this will probably be my only post ever. Just like the last thread.

I just want it on record on the first page that RoboCop is objectively the best movie ever made.

I want it on record that this is mostly true. Not the best, but one of.

I am also immensely proud that my punny name has been used.

Wow I'm so glad I made it on the first page!

Now I can let y'all know that Shutter Island isn't that good of a movie, even worse that The Departed.

'even worse than The Departed'

Are you trying to say The Departed is bad? Because there's being wrong, and then there's being wrong.

Been watching Drive on BBC, I know it's cliche at this point but I seriously love this film.

No way. What...

White cinema is the best.

I dunno how you can say Chinese cinema is good. Almost all of it is trash.......

What the hell even is 'white cinema'? That's an utterly moronic way of grouping things together.

So I watched L'écume des Jours this afternoon by Michel Gondry and... it's just so weird. Apparently the book is weird as well. If you like things like Cronenberg's Naked Lunch, this one's better. To me it's just weird for weird's sake.

Maybe not back to back but Sightseers for sure. I didn't get to talk about this enough after I watched it.

I wanna see the Pusher films too

Chinese and Korean haven't done shit. Bollywood is homosexual. White people are better than everybody else.

I actually finished watching Prince Avalanche about 30 minutes ago after it got brought up quite a bit in the old thread.

I liked it, it took me a long time to get into it (and I mean about 50 minutes) but once I got into it I was in. Fantastic acting job by Rudd & Hirsch definitely made the first 50 minutes more tolerable.

Almost 100% of the South Korean movies I've seen are better than almost 90% of Hollywood movies I've seen but that's because I've went out and looked for only the cream of the crop of South Korean movies. If I went digging then I'd be neck deep in pure and utter shite.

The Kings of Summer + Prince Avalanche. Two of the best films of last year, both with great performances and great cinematography, though I'd say The Kings of Summer is a good bit better overall.

Yep. They've done great stuff but I'm willing to bet it's much worse on average

Just finished The Life Aquatic. My favourite thing about it is the dude playing Bowie tunes all the time. And Sigur Ros at the end. Defoe was really funny too. Overall I dunno, I think I'd need to watch it again.

Finally got around to watching Kisaragi after having it lie around for ages. Absolutely fantastic and very 12 Angry Men-ish, if 12 Angry Men was about a C-list Japanese idol fan club that delves into a murder mystery.

It's pretty great stuff, very funny too.
