You have John Carter and Red planet but not Interstellar?

[–] draaaak 6 points 14 points (+20|-6) ago 

Interstallar was garbage.

[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Save yourself the trouble band just listen to the soundtrack, it's the only thing of value in Interstellar

Alien, Aliens, Bladerunner, Matrix

[–] WithoutaDoubt 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I watched the Matrix trilogy the other day, and you know what I saw: every single villain was a white male. Nothing else, no female villains, no nigs as villains, etc. Just like a couple of mentally ill pieces of lib shit.

[–] ethtirlomalral 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I never understood how Neo comes back to life. Did the Matrix revive him? So it can give life as well as take it? Or was it Trinity’s confession of love? Was Neo’s death necessary for his transformation into the One? Why was Smith non-conforming as an agent and seemingly capable of emotions like desperation, frustration, and anger? My wife watched it for the first time with me and she enjoyed it up until the last 10 minutes which she thought was stupid, because of all the above questions.

They just get less science fiction and more fantasty as it goes on. The clincher for me was when Neo had that freaky vision when he had no eyes.

[–] FakeEssense 3 points 1 points (+4|-3) ago  (edited ago)

There was evil asians, right?

And only one black dude hero (Morpheus, I think). It is not so bad. It is not Black Panther.

And just so I have to make a new account: Black Panther was not terrible. Wasn't great or anything. I only watched it because libby friends told me it was important to understand some Averngers movie. If I watched that movie, I do not see why I needed to watch Wacanda or whatever. But I did not feel it was a complete waste of my time.

[–] GoodGodKirk 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

terminator and predator then too. might as well.

[–] chirogonemd 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I refuse to acknowledge Matrix as a trilogy. Nothing should have been made after the first one. It was perfect.

[–] Crikes 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Nothing should have been made after the first one. It was perfect.

Agreed. A good example of a masterpiece, and then attempts to ring as much money out of it as possible.

PRIMER

Moon

Dark City

[–] SexMachine [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I've watched Primer about a half dozen times, and I still don't fucking get it. Why was that chick's father sent back? What possible scenario would they have let someone else in on their thing? Also, which set of them is there at the end? Is that the 5th loop of them talking to each other?

[–] RickC-137 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

He did another movie called "Upstream color" it's a little easier to follow.

[–] StoneRights 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

I feel like the whole point of Primer is scratching your head, the story itself is really boring and pointless.

[–] HighEnergyLife 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

There's an illustration online of the various timelines and loops. I appreciate a film that makes me work.

Shane Carruth is a fucking genius. He's not a jew, so don't expect him to make any more films, besides Upstream Color. (((They))) make the guys play ball too

[–] ThirteenthZodiac 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Solid fucking set, right there.

[–] Jimbonez_Jonez 2 points 15 points (+17|-2) ago 

The Fly from '86.

[–] eatmorealmonds 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

No, the original The Fly with David Hedison

[–] FKM 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

bump

[–] LoveIsStill 4 points 0 points (+4|-4) ago 

Directed by (((David Cronenberg))) and starring (((Jeff Goldblum)))? Yeah... nah.

[–] Jimbonez_Jonez 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

By the time you get through the distribution, every movie ever has passed through Jew hands....what can you do about it other than not watch any movie? That's unacceptable, because The Fly, The Thing, The Shining, The Exorcist, The.... Nightmare on Elm Street.

[–] GoodGodKirk 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

he acted creepy and just continued that same character into all his movies.

[–] FakeEssense 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

? Besides Mel Gibson, give me an example of non-Jew Hollywood. When I found out Kurk Douglas was a Jew, well, that was the end of that.

I am Jewicus. No, I am Jewicus. Sigh.

I must edit because my maximum for the day is over. Cheers man. I pirate that costs nothing, and I still feel ripped off at the end of the movie for my time, and so maybe you are doing the right thing.

[–] TheodoreKent 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

The Jews didn't take over Hollywood by chance. Some of them are actually decent directors. The Fly is actually a really great film.

[–] SocksOnCats 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

Was watching the original Robocop last night. That’s epic.

Also Dune is really good - though it takes a few viewings to really get it.

[–] WilliamCutting 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I hate to be that guy, but if you liked the Dune movie or series at all you should read the books. They are really incredible and make many other popular series look poorly done in comparison.

[–] SocksOnCats 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I’ve read some Herbert, and I like his writing, but I find him a little long winded. I’m more of a Heinlein guy.

[–] a_fucking_dude 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

This how old I am: I drove myself to watch the original Dune movie when it first came out in theaters. I was apalled! Everyone else I knew loved it. Unfortunately for me, I had read the books.

[–] voltronsdicks 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

The four hour version. if you watch any shorter version than that, you don't deserve to watch Dune. You're just not ready to win.

[–] SocksOnCats 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I haven’t done the four hour one yet. But I deserve to win, so I will.

[–] Sandmich 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

An upvote for Robocop, but I've soured on Dune. The voice over narration (already a no-no) restates elements in expository dialog, the soundtrack by Toto is uneven in both quality and volume (poor mixing), and stuff from the book that would have made the movie easier to understand is left out, while stuff not in the book that makes the movie confusing is shoved in. It's a shame since so many other elements of the movie (set design and acting in particular) are done so well.

[–] SocksOnCats 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Oh ya for sure Dune is a train wreck. No doubt about that. But, like a train wreck in motion, I can’t seem to look away from it. Good calls on everything.

[–] GoodGodKirk 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I've got the criterion robocop DVD unedited, 8 minutes i think?

[–] SocksOnCats 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yes unedited version is best version.

Gattaca

Moon

Europa Report

[–] RogerByam 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You're the only person to mention Gattaca!

I'll check out some of your other recommendations, thank you.

[–] SexMachine [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Colossus?

Edit, yeah that was a good one.

What was the other one like that where ants became sentient and basically declared themselves boss of the world, humans are now my bitches.

[–] Dominus_Stercae 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Phase IV? That was a quirky one!

PS: Quirky, as in Good

[–] ItGoesOnAnonAnonAnon 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I've got some options depending on flavour you're looking for.

The new Ghost in the Shell took some liberties but blended things from the manga/movies/series pretty well.

Neill Blomkampf does good stuff, well-done cinematography and special effects. District 9, Elysium, and Chappie are his work. Similarly but not his, Ex Machina.

As for space-ey, Pandorum is great, the Riddick movies are entertaining (not necessarily great), Serenity is another entertainer that you don't have to watch the series to get the idea for. On the darker horror side, the first few Aliens of course, and Event Horizon.

Mr. Nobody, What Happened to Monday, Minority Report, The Fountain, Cloud Atlas. I can probably keep going for a while but without subgenres to go with those are all that come to mind that cover a lot of bases.

I do second Diogene's idea too for Twilight Zone, similar to the original Star Trek a great many of the episodes are strikingly thought-provoking.

[–] SirDigbyChikenCaesar 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

How dare you have that bio and not mention the 5th Element when recommending Scifi movies?

[–] ItGoesOnAnonAnonAnon 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Frack, I knew there were some other gems I was missing but can't believe that one escaped me there, goos good call!

Also, that habitual 'Frack' reminded me that the newer Battlestar Galactica is an entertaining epic space opera. Entertaining nonetheless.

Edit: strikethrough. Apparently goose calls will be how I show appreciation from now on.

[–] TheodoreKent 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

5th Element kinda sucked.

[–] SexMachine [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Yeah, I caught pretty much all of the original twilight zone when scifi channel did a marathon showing of them like 7 years ago. That show was pretty awesome for its time. Same with the Outer Limits.

[–] Diogenes_The_Cynic 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago  (edited ago)

The Twilight Zone. Not a movie but its great material. Maybe also the original Flash Gordon film serials.

[–] TheodoreKent 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Still amazing to me that one man wrote and narrated every single episode.

[–] Dominus_Stercae 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Second this for the original Twilight Zone series. Includes some excellent, thought-provoking stories.

[–] eatmorealmonds 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Third this, plus Outer Limits and One Step Beyond.
