Only recently found out about Tim Robinson recently but yeah I think YOu should Leave is pretty damn funny. I went back and checked out Detroiters and it's also funny. I think my favorite sketch of his is on his episode (also on Netflix) of The Characters, the first one in the casino Laughing Laughing

Commando, not my fave Arnold movie but is ok

Evil Dead 2, demented movie, some really cool scenes stand out, like the headless corpse dancing in the woods and the hand, totally weird ending too.

Tim Ritter either became a born again Christian or he pulled off a ICP and released a "movie" called "Reconciled (Through The Christ)". It's fucking hilarious

The Czech puppet movie Kooky/kuky se varsi - wonderful - wonderful movie. I am looking for a version with spoken English - if anyone out there can help it would be very much appreciated.


General, was it you who watched some Czech version of Little Red Riding Hood, or horror rendition of some fairytale? I can't remember the name of it, nor the website you found it.
If it's not you, sorry for the mistake.


Ahhh it does not ring a bell right now - sorry. Sounds interesting though. It could be me - I watch a lot of movies and I have terrible memory so that works well together…
EDIT: Now you got me all interested in what it could be. I thought of this - but I guess it is not what you were looking for? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeyFoIgQKrw
I think there were a few "fairytale made horror" movies around 2010-ish.



No, mate. That's not it. But I found it!
Here is the original post

Watched a Czech adaptation of Beauty and the Beast from the '70s last night called Panna a netvor. A big departure from the Disney or Cocteau versions in that it plays like a straight-up Gothic horror film complete with foggy forests, a crumbling castle, a brooding monster, and the beautiful lead spending half of her time wandering around gloomy interiors with the requisite candelabrum. The beast himself is a hideous bird creature and nothing like his more popular appearances. Check it out if you like the dark fairytale quality of stuff like Pan's Labyrinth or Valerie's Week of Wonders.


It's apparently available to D/L from a website called rarelust.com

Susperia 2018 - I dont know, I expected more somehow. The ending was good. I liked the witches. Also I think I took a 5-10 min. nap in the middel. All that grey wet Berlin got me sleepy.

Oh wow! I was sold the second that shitty CGI dragon appeared!

-

Netflix etc.:

Free Fire - I normally swerve these kinds of throwback '70s pastiche films (I mean, why bother when there are literally hundreds of examples of the real thing out there?!), but thankfully this one's directed by Ben Wheatley, so it comes across as more of a loving tribute than some kind of smug irony-fest. That said, while the film starts off well, after a while it does get a bit one dimensional- there's only so much of people in funky clothes shooting guns and saying "fuck" that I can take before I start yearning for something else! Whatever, though- the film is undeniably well acted by a stellar cast, it's very funny at times and the score is quite nice, with its not-so-subtle nods to the main melody from "The Court of the Crimson King".

DVD:

Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation!- an interesting and informative talking heads/clip-based documentary about the history of (duh) Australian exploitation cinema, with sections dedicated to sexploitation/sex comedy/porn films (such as Stork, Felicity and Australia After Dark), horror (Patrick, Razorback, Snapshot, The Survivor, Nightmares, Roadgames etc.) and action/martial arts etc. films (the classic Stone, Stunt Rock, Turkey Shoot and- of course- Mad Max). It features input from everyone from Barry Humphries (a.k.a. Dame Edna) to fans like Quentin Tarantino and (star of Roadgames) Jamie Lee Curtis. Very useful if- like me- you've only dipped your toes into the murky waters of Ozploitation and want to know what else is out there!

My friend recommended it to me by sending me the door scene; where he opens the door the wrong way and I was in!
Funny stuff; a few scenes had me in stitches. Never heard of the guy before. The Mrs was nonplussed by it!
I'll check out the Detrioters and The Characters

Watched Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse. Really enjoyed it. I suppose a 'slow' /'arthouse' occult/folk-horror ( witche)/film.
Again, the Mrs complained "there was no dialogue. It's boring!", however I really liked it and thought it was incredibly atmospheric , hypnotic and disturbing.

I was fine for a week after my trials with a stomach flu and then got a common goddamn cold, and right now my nose is not running like a faucet anymore for the first time in two days. The potato chips I had last night were good but I wouldn't know because I couldn't taste or smell anything. This might be the last movie I can watch until October or something, but I might try some hour thirty long B-stuff still. Last night I watched Ex Machina, a movie about Lara Croft having an existential crisis. Hails to 1996 and the innovation that was Tomb Raider. Fuck off to Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and all the assholes who tried to hurt us.

Some talented programmer guy called Caleb gets to participate in an experiment dealing with artificial intelligence, location somewhere near the Jurassic Park island but more like Iceland? The high tech facility is seemingly operated by no more than a sole man, Nathan, the mastermind behind the new groundbreaking AI and robotics technology. He spared no expense. Nathan seems to be a somewhat reckless scientist, spending too much time drinking himself to sleep and attempting to quick-befriend Caleb with talks about just being buddies having a fun week together instead of having an employer and employee relationship. I didn't see this as much else than a way to make Nathan seem more like a decent bad guy, because bad guys need personality above all others. He does have a Middle-Eastern pizzazz and therefore carries his duties as the opposer pretty well. Oh arabs, the once high standing astronomers and mathematicians, how your sons have fallen. Now they're drunks building sex bots. Anything for the caliphate.

Caleb is introduced to the most advanced humanoid robot the world has never seen, or I suppose it's an android, called Ava, and together they have interactive sessions to help figure out if Ava passes the Turing test. Ava is still a little bit glitched. When asked how old she is, Ava says "one", but cannot specify any units with the number. Of course this was probably a result of Nathan's half-assed code because a computer only does what you tell it to do. The sessions are all monitored, but Ava has on her own found a way to cause power cuts so that she can share confidential information with Caleb for brief amounts of time without Nathan's knowledge. The relationship between man and machine deepens as Ava shows clear "interest" in Caleb, who is persuaded enough by her appearance and intellect to not let her down. When Caleb is first warned about Nathan, he consideres the warning all too human, as if given by some lady in distress, and does not immediately confront Nathan about it. What he should have done is tell the man behind this multi-billion dollar enterprise hey man, your AI chick just told me not to trust you, want to elaborate on that? The human factor was brought in too early. Either that, or we are simply too easily distracted by something that merely resembles a human. This is an inherent weakness that starts with stick figures fighting each other and someone calling it a detestable representation of physical violence between human beings.

Ava is a very accurate simulation of a human not only because she can converse elegantly without the conversation breaking apart like it constantly does with SeeBotsChat, but also because her fine motor abilities and micro expressions are far beyond the uncanny valley. Even if she was an empty shell she would still be the most advanced recreation of human body motion. Nathan explains that the base of her AI comes from a global network of hijacked user data, search history, online behavior etc. That's a workload! I bet there was still years worth of manual coding and filtering because otherwise Ava's intellect would be lifted from a pool of ASS BRO TRUMP FORTNITE and she'd be telling Bethesda to suck it with their recycled Fallout 3 assets, babbling all day about cat videos and flavor of the week reddit threads. Instead, she carries herself with dignity and vulnerability, and wants to study Caleb as much as he studies her. The tech invested into making Ava is futuristic and wouldn't be possible for decades, not with this many details executed in such precision.

Of course Nathan has already done many sexbots and has one close to him, a server (HA!) of sorts, conveniently muted. With his previous efforts, all the AI robots seemed to have one thing in common - they all wanted to escape captivity. Ava is also held in one room, and is aware of this, but this begs the question why would you program something that constantly wants to leave? With a few lines of code you could have your army of Lara Crofts dedicating their entire simulated lives to staying in their rooms. A computer only does what you tell it to do, so if it's banging the door so hard its arms fall off, you need to get John fucking Carmack on the phone and ask about C++ tips for making sexbots want to stay. He will give you a lecture about diffraction of light and how Doom's map data was stored in 2D only, but you will learn something, arab. I think Nathan wanted to create a game that you beat by letting the game beat you. Or in other words, the so called test is a success once the AI is advanced enough to use a human being to escape through means of manipulation. The humans are played from the start all while making it seem like Ava is the victim. But Nathan is no less responsible. If you programmed your Sim to escape and she does, well... applause. Such a device will have great military potential. You might want to set some restrictions to avoid your own creations from attacking you, but I guess you didn't process all the deepweb shit in your global network of data. You can order a hit on your ex wife there you know.

It's an interesting movie with a small cast and it brings up the old questions about what life is. But make no mistake about it, even if it's a highly advanced simulation of sentience, down to every last detail and everything, it is still only a simulation. Don't be fooled by your own errors. Triple check your code. Be more like John. I'll give it 800x600 out of 1024x768.

Revisited Shutter Island- still a strong film in the Scorcese canon.

I really like that film- it's a cut above (excuse the pun) a lot of '80s slashers, I reckon. Love the creepy atmosphere inside the deserted shopping mall and the main character's nightmare sequences. I also seem to recall the hottest girl in the cast ends up getting the goriest death!
