Is there any good movie adaptations of lovecraft's books?
User avatar #27417 to #27403 - ljxjlos ONLINE (01/25/2015) [-]
I haven´t seen any, but considering that Lovecrafts Horror is especially heavy on the usage of "indescribable" horror that can make you insane by seeing it, I doubt that it would work too good as a movie...
User avatar #27404 to #27403 - thedudeistheman (01/24/2015) [-]
The only one I've seen is Re-Animator, which is pretty good.

I watched The Babadook and it's really freaking good. It's so well made. One thing I really like about it is that whenever there's a scary scene, there's no music (at least during the cut). So many movies use music or other sound effects to make a jump scare, and those aren't really scary, just startling. With The Babadook, the absence of music let's you focus on what you're seeing, and it's terrifying. I played a bit of Dead Space, and it's like this one part the happens in the first couple of hours of the game where you have to kill something in space, and there's no noise. It's really haunting, and The Babadook succeeds greatly during these parts. Not that the film as a whole isn't excellent, it's just that I think music/sound effects are overused/misused often, so the fact that The Babadook doesn't use them and it works excellently is something I like to see.

You really have to check it out.

Looking for some good movies to watch on Netflix. Could be any genre, narrative or documentary.
User avatar #27390 to #27383 - awesomerninjathing (01/23/2015) [-]
for some more obscure shit

Hotel Rwanda
Oldboy (2003)
City of God
Ong-bak
13 Assassins
The Two Escobars (great if you're a soccer fan, but otherwise still very interesting)
The Last Emperor
User avatar #27393 to #27390 - thedudeistheman (01/23/2015) [-]
I haven't seen any of these, so I'll be sure to check them out. I haven't heard of the last two, so all the more reason to look into them.
User avatar #27397 to #27393 - awesomerninjathing (01/23/2015) [-]
might as well give you quick rundowns

-Hotel Rwanda is about the Hutu vs Tutsi civil war where the UN failed to react in time and caused many deaths. Watched and learned about it in school, very interesting.

-Oldboy: Asian guy gets put in jail and doesn't know why, gets out after 15 years, and wants revenge. Has one of the greatest fight scenes of all time.

-City of God: Dark movie about slum life in Brazil. All subtitles, pretty sure. Has a very macabre scene (well, it's really all macabre, lots of violent acts performed by children)

-Ong-bak: Not a fantastic movie but I'm a sucker for martial arts heavily-choreographed fights so this is really cool, just for fun.

-13 Assassins: remake of an older movie that is not on netflix, sadly. basically it's 13 assassins going to... assassinate a lord

-The Two Escobars: documentary on Andres Escobar, famous colombian soccer player, and Pablo Escobar, famous colombian drug dealer, and how their lives intertwined. Andres was shot dead during an argument shortly after scoring an own-goal in the world cup and getting his team eliminated.

-The Last Emperor: I don't know much about this because I only found it while making this post, but apparently it's about the life of the final emperor of China, from birth to death. Seems very interesting.

Sorry if foreign movies aren't your thing, I just love samurais and kung fu and shit
User avatar #27399 to #27397 - thedudeistheman (01/23/2015) [-]
I've definitely been meaning to check out Oldboy, City of God, and 13 Assassins. That's not to say I was never going to watch Hotel Rwanda or Ong-bak, but I'm getting off topic. I heard the first hour of 13 Assassin's is like planning and build-up, and the second hour is just the execution of the plans and build-up, which sounds intense.

Foreign movies can be great. I don't mind reading subtitles for a movie. If a movie looks good, I'll watch it.
User avatar #27391 to #27390 - awesomerninjathing (01/23/2015) [-]
not really obscure but more "not really talked about"
User avatar #27387 to #27383 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
Dredd is a great action movie. Stand by Me is a great, non-horror movie based off of King's novel. Truman, enough said. And Snowpeircer, a gritty movie about a not-so perfect utopia that has quite a few twists and wtf moments; awesome fight scenes too.

There are a lot of other great movies like Silence of the Lambs or Forest Gump, that I'm pretty sure that most people have seen by now.
User avatar #27392 to #27387 - thedudeistheman (01/23/2015) [-]
I've been meaning to check out Dredd for a while now, and I'll check out Stand By Me too. I heard it's really good. I assume you're talking about The Truman Show, which I have seen and really like, but it's not on U.S. Netflix anymore. I actually have a copy of Snowpiercer I've been meaning to get to, but I've been busy so I don't know when I'll actually get to watch some of these movies. I always like to have some recommendations on hand though.

And yeah, I've seen Silence of the Lambs and Forrest Gump, both of which are great.
User avatar #27394 to #27392 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
they took it off? damn. well I would recommend Dredd highly. It's my favorite action film yet. I have been online since I first responded to your comment I'm here forever
User avatar #27396 to #27394 - thedudeistheman (01/23/2015) [-]
Yeah, I must've watched it just a bit before they took it off. I was going to watch it in a class I'm taking, but I prefer watching movies in one sitting, not over several days. I appreciate the dedication.
#27363 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
Idk if this is the correct board, first time using boards, thanks johndapro but I want to discuss about Star Wars with users, specifically Count Dooku and episode 2. Before I get into this in detail, I just want to test the waters, seeing if anyone is interested.

I believe that Count Dooku was a rogue jedi and not a true sith. He knew of Darth Sidious being the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, and he wanted to, long story short, destroy the republic before the empire could exist.
User avatar #27378 to #27363 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
Okay Here's the most convincing evidence for my claim.
Episode 2, Count Dooku talks to captured Obi Wan www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaXHDpCe-KI

During the first 25 seconds, Dooku says "they have gone too far". Note 1: who is "they"? Afterwords, Obi-wan says that he believed Dooku was "the leader here", to which he replies "this has nothing to do with me". Note 2: Dooku believes that there is another person who is the leader, and that the war isn't about Dooku.

After the bounty hunter business, Qui-Gon is mentioned. It is well known that he is a 'grey jedi', or a force-sensitive person who does not act according to jedi/sith codes. If I am right about Dooku, he too is a 'grey jedi', just leans a bit towards the dark side of the force notice that this does not mean he's evil, as Kyle Katarn also shared this attribute. . Note 3: Dooku replies to Obi-Wan when he says "he'd never join you" by saying "don't be so sure". If Dooku wishes Qui-Gon was there with him and Obi-Wan, then perhaps he wishes he had jedi that shared his idea of the Republic and Palpatine, and perhaps he believes Qui-Gon would have joined him.

And then he tells Obi-Wan about Palpatine being the Sith Lord Sidious he says this verbatim! Note 4: Dooku wanted to have Obi-Wan released as soon as possible. Also, simultaneously, Anakin was being sent to his death via gladiatorial fights this was of Geonosian doing, NOT of Dooku's (he was in a meeting, which will be discussed later) . Meaning that Dooku could have killed Obi-Wan without a single obstacle in various ways. Yet he tried to convince him to join his cause.

IF Dooku was truly a sith, and even more so, the apprentice of the Emperor, he would have killed Obi-Wan, and would not have told him about the Emperor. And this is just a single scene.
#27386 to #27378 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
Here's some more evidence for you unbelievers:
Episode 2, Battle of Geonosis www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmR1ee223zQ
In the Battle of Geonosis, at 5:12, Dooku and CIS leaders get upset that specifically Padme doesn't die. Now why do they care about her and not the lethal jedis? a few times you see the leaders cheer when Padme is hurt/in danger, but no comment about ANYTHING that happens to the jedi.

Episode1&2&3, Emperor's Rise to Power www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEOn_1wQJ5k
The next episode depicts how Palpatine rose to become the Emperor. To tie into the last video&comment, this video, at 3:27, talks about how the Senate needed to give Palpatine emergency powers. Who votes for that? You guessed it. Padme. If Dooku wanted her dead in the movie before that scene, wouldn't that mean Dooku would have wanted to stop the Emperor's plans?

Also discussed in that video is how Dooku hired Jango Fett. Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas went to Kamino to get the clone army for the Republic, and guess who killed him. Right again, Dooku. Again, Dooku is acting against the rise of the emperor. this is why he is shocked to find that the republic has a massive army, and why he somehow knows that the same army is "the strongest army the galaxy has ever seen". He was shocked while knowing plenty about the army. He thought he halted the production of the army.

Also in this video, it retells the attempted assassination of Padme on Coruscant. When the assassin is caught, who kills the assassin to withhold information? Jango Fett, who was hired by Dooku. Certainly, the Emperor would have had Dooku's _ head_ over these treasonous acts, wouldn't he?

Of course he would. That brings us to episode 3. Here's the opening text crawl: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0uNMPDzR7Q . It specifically says that "there are heroes on both sides [of the war]". Is this referring to Dooku? Afterwords, it talks about the "stunning" move the seperatist army did to capture Palpatine, and quickly thereafter flee from Coruscant. This mission was to take the Emperor away from the Republic, so that the Empire may never be created.

Then, the soon-to-be emperor tells anakin to kill Dooku. If Anakin followed the jedi way, Dooku would have been tried by the Senate, which wouldn't allow capital punishment. Therefore, if Dooku didn't die by the hands of Anakin (the same reason Windu needed to kill Palpatine instead of have him in a trial) then he would have been able to preach about who Palpatine really was. Which means when the Emperor finally found out about Dooku's traitorous plot, he needed him dead.

tl;dr Dooku led the CIS to destroy the Republic before Palpatine could have created the Empire, but eventually failed.
User avatar #27366 to #27363 - episode (01/23/2015) [-]
but, He was sith imo. He did follow the rule of two Atleast if you count the animed clonewars series
User avatar #27371 to #27366 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
I don't think so. At least in the books (haven't read the second one in over 5 years, im rusty) and movies, Palpatine, or Darth Sidious, ended the rule of two. Many argue he did that when he honed the title "emperor" but I argue, that the emperor never intended to have an apprentice.

Main characters who have taken the title "Darth" haven't always been part of the rule of two, most notably Darth Revan and Darth Malak.

Throughout the prequel trilogy, I argue that Lucas specifically, at first, intended Dooku to be an antihero and not a villain, like the Emporer, Maul, or Grievous.
User avatar #27374 to #27371 - episode (01/23/2015) [-]
All I know is he had an apprentice and eventually tried to kill his master a few times. Hence the rule of two.
User avatar #27376 to #27374 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
I'm not aware of an apprentice of the emperor. I know there were a few sith other than vader who did the bidding of the emperor, and I haven't really watched much of the old SW:Clone Wars. new one has a shitty relationship between anakin and obiwan
User avatar #27364 to #27363 - episode (01/23/2015) [-]
I liked his dueling sabers
User avatar #27365 to #27364 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
you mean his lightsaber, or his swordfighting scenes?
User avatar #27367 to #27365 - episode (01/23/2015) [-]
Sabers
The design is literally a dueling saber
User avatar #27368 to #27367 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
didn't know that! That's cool (also I argue that could be a visual allusion to his dueling with the emperor)
User avatar #27369 to #27368 - episode (01/23/2015) [-]
Were you hear for the large crossguard disagreement between fans and whatnot? I still think the the bastard sword looking crossguard saber in the new movie trailer is sick

Wrong here. Lovely.
User avatar #27372 to #27370 - blueflags (01/23/2015) [-]
No. I just learned of boards when I posted on Admin's sticky (and I've been on this site for years, tl;dr this is my second account).

I think it looks cool and anyone who denies the logistics of having the small blades on the side as useful, just do not know enough about sword technology

User avatar #27381 to #27355 - ScottP (01/23/2015) [-]
I was really hoping that they would at least wait a few episodes before bringing Oliver back to life through plot device

Also, Black Canary's introduction was rather subpar. No music build-up and the scene transition ruined what little momentum it had
User avatar #27398 to #27381 - hirollin (01/23/2015) [-]
It had buildup throughout the entire earlier season.
Still fucking terrible initiation though. She even took forever to bring the bar up and swing it. It was so terrible it had to have been instructed that way by a director or something.
User avatar #27359 to #27355 - hirollin (01/22/2015) [-]
still more entertaining than the flash's last episode.
User avatar #27360 to #27359 - thegrohltroll (01/22/2015) [-]
In all honesty I'm only watching the flash because of Dr Harisson who's been the only interesting character and arrow cameos. The acting is subpar and I hate most characters.
User avatar #27380 to #27360 - ScottP (01/23/2015) [-]
I actually really like the scenes between Barry and his dad, but yeah the acting tends to be very cheesy. For me, it works because I'm all for having a cheesy and fun superhero show.

That episode was pretty disappointing though. Heatwave was pretty one-dimensional and the fucking heat gun cannot possible "emit absolute hot". That doesn't even make any sense
User avatar #27362 to #27360 - hirollin (01/22/2015) [-]
I agree completely.

The things I can remember:

"A man of steel. Huh."
"Some would say Ronnie and I were like fire and ice."

Finished first season of the americans. Still think it's good. I like cold war era history in general so I guess I'm biased.
