For anyone who's watched dune:
does it feel like an adult movie kids can watch or is it like a kids movie they are trying to make a bit darker for adults? Or not for kids at all?


Might take my nephew to go see it. He's only in 1st grade but we watch robocop, terminator, predator, aliens, the fly etc I'm not concerned about the content.
My concern is I'll fucking hate it. I can't get thru a lot of movies like justice league, fast and furious. I feel like they're made for adults whose brains don't work. (Not even trying to be a snob, I like a lot of other dumb shit)

I think a first grader would be bored to tears watching Dune. The film does a great job of breathing life into some pretty mundane space politics but I know adults who think it’s boring as fuck. I thought it was fantastic, to be clear.

Yeah thanks. I'm in a tricky situation he's young but really smart (everyone thinks their kids are smart but this kid is legit doing highschool work when he's 7 years old) so it's hard finding the balance between kid friendly but still interesting.

When I first saw ads for Dune, I also couldn't figure out if it was meant for teens since the main actor looked so young and it was PG-13, but I loved it. I agree that a first grader might be bored with the run time at 2:35 and the first hour is a little slow. As far as being too violent for a kid, it's got some potentially intense scenes, but if you've watched Terminator together, I don't think it's anything worse than that. Maybe he'll have a nightmare about getting swallowed up by a giant sand worm.

“Peeping Tom”

I haven’t seen this since I was a kid—that was a long-ass time ago. I didn’t remember much about it, other than it seeming to establish some of the tropes of slasher films and maybe being among the vanguard of “psycho next door” films as they took over “monster of the week” type films. When I last saw this, I didn’t know who Moira Shearer is, so it was cool to see her in this one—and of course they found a reason for her to dance. The colors are great. The sets are great. Carl is a total creep—and is a great role model for the kids incriminating themselves on TikTok. Fun to think about a time in which having every part of ones life documented seemed weird.

“Sunset Boulevard”

I don’t know how many times I’ve watched this. A lot. It was the last movie I saw in a theater before COVID. It’s my favorite movie. This time I really enjoyed watching Gloria Swanson’s performance and Buster Keatons (very short) performance. Hedda Hopper’s brief appearance was a brutal look at the celebrity media industry that struck me as being way worse than all the camera crews hanging around.

I watched all the Evil Deads a month or so back. The second one is still my favorite, but Army of Darkness is by far the funniest.

This one is really gross:

This movie fucked me up.  It's one of those movies where half the reviews are "the most boring movie I've ever seen" and the other half are "most amazing movie I've ever seen".  It's not the most amazing movie I've ever seen, but I definitely loved it.

It mines similar territory to the VVitch, or at least takes place in the same time frame and "witches" is somewhat of a theme.  It's a slooooooow burn; any slower and you'd be watching still photographs.  It's more of an art film... kinda reminds of me of a cross between The Begotten and The VVitch.  The cinematography is outstanding, every single camera shot is creepy as hell.  It's so atmospheric and unsettling it pretty much drew me in from the beginning.   I find this type of stuff far more effective for a scary film.

Highly recommended if you love slow burn, creepy horror.

My gf and i watched the fantastic Viggo/Cronenberg pair of movies Eastern Promises and A History of Violence. Pleasantly surprised that my gf who only wants to watch movies from the fifties loved both of them, even though she had to look at Viggo Mortensen's giant cock flopping around while he's getting slashed by chechens

Had a big dum crocodile night. Rogue, black water and crawl. All stupid but fun if you can turn your brain off for 90 mins.
Rogue Id say best all around. Crawl most dum but maybe most fun. Black water least dum but also least fun.
Black water abyss is dogpoop tho don't bother. Dum but no fun.

Possesor is so sick!  I've watched it twice, and the second time I tried to watch it I had to turn it off within 20 minutes because I was ripped and the vibes were getting to me.  So great!

Saw Pulp Fiction and American Psycho after meaning to see them for like 15 years. Didn't really care for pulp fiction, should probably watch it again. Didn't really care for American Psycho at first either untill the next day and now I think it's one of the best movies I've seen. Also got me on a skin care program which is nice. Also made me understand that wknd sketch

Yes. In real life, I'm never like "it all just happened so FAST" but I watch action scenes in movies and I'm like "WTF was that gibberish"?

I wanted to like it so much, but it was just too boring for me. The first story, with Adrian Brody and Benicio was great, but other than that, I felt like it was too artsy for its own good. It was nice, but once the third story was ending, I was just hoping that this is the end, and there wont be anything else in that.

Fitcarraldo - 1982 -  holy shit what a fucking adventure epic of a story that I've been in the mood for for years that was.   Dude literally made a film where humans actually carried a giant steam boat over a mountain in the Peruvian jungle. Numerous casualties, chief threats and attacks from indigenous tribes during the making too. And it was actually a phenomenal movie too

I had a similar experience @GardenSkater77  I read the Brett Easton Ellis book as a late teen. It's OG serial killer chic and so dark and vile, but I think the critique/satire of the 80s Reaganites was always mixed in there- so it's so cool that Mary Harron decided to focus on that instead of the physical gore.
But when I first saw the film I was so disappointed. I had read that David Cronenberg was going to do the film with Brad Pitt and the movie was going to somehow have no murders - which sounded incredible. So my expectations were all over the place.
The actual American Psycho film looked/sounded kind of lower budget at first, and I kept doing that thing where I saw only the parts of the book that had been left out, not the value of what was included. SPOILER ***There's this one scene in the novel where Patrick Bateman buys handfuls of crack in the street and eats it, goes into a fancy deli and does the same thing with a fancy ham, just hoovers it, and throws up all over himself, and then has a shootout with some cops. I was for some reason pissed about that scene being cut. I guess I just wanted to see someone eat a fistful of crack and then go Liz Lemon on some ham.***
A few days later I was talking about the movie with a friend who was also obsessed with the book, and they loved it. They kept describing the facemask skin peel scene and the business card scene, and then it clicked in my head how well done the film of American Psycho is.

I rewatched Heat last night. Even as a low res youtube video its still so good. The plane lights in the gun fight and the whole last act is <3

Hey…it was actually @Hevonen that wrote the post. I just added the skin care gif. It’s good you read the book. I haven’t read a book in 15 years. I’m not proud of this fact but my short attention span is so great I just can’t read more than an article.

As for American Psycho it may be one of the most quotable films of all time. The film borders on slap stick and I wonder if Christian Bale created that element or if it is in the book. I actually never saw the film until recently because the cover made it look like a slasher movie but it’s really a black comedy that is a disassociate as the main character.

I love the ending where he wants to come clean and no one cares. That is so corporate. All you have to do is portray a picture of success and you can do whatever you want as long as it does not negatively impact the company.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone…
