Yes yes, there are few things the talentless enjoy more than groupthink.

The Plan 9 article is positively glowing, finding a certain charm in the movie breaking the usual rules in the bad way it did. Not really the group think of people who think Plan 9 is a bad movie because they read somewhere that it was (mY tOp TeN WoRsT MoViEs: AnD aT #1, PlaN 9 FrOm OUTeR SpAcE), but don't understand any of the why. It's a legendary piece of cult history that every film (esp. sci-fi) buff should probably see at least once. Also recommended: Radar Men from the Moon, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.

Whats important is that we punish people who try to be original and creative.

dilbert, ed wood is a legendary director in the history of cinema for how uniquely bad he was, just on a technical level alone. his name is shorthand for incompetent film-making.

that said, it’s not ‘punishment’. his name has attained immortality in his afterlife through how bad he was. people are humouring and indulgent. he’s the classic-era tommy wiseau.

also i don’t know why you’re going on about ‘discouraging creativity’. we’re talking a guy who made pulpy b-movies, not a visionary.

so funny you’re still butthurt over cats. because, as we all know, movie adaptations are the peak of originality.

It's weird how we're supposedly the ones bringing it up all the time, but it's always between the lines when Dilbert makes a cranky post about critics or whatever. Cats '19 is an excellent example of what not to do in just about every aspect of musicals and filmmaking and clips could be screened and broken down to a creative class for precisely that reason. But it is not a movie with the clout of Plan 9.

original
Movie adaptations of infinitely rehashed comic books, in an industry up to its ears in said movies, are of course highly original. Each more serious and grim than the last. How did we go from Spiderman's mildly sobering proclamation "with great power comes great responsibility" to him literally dissolving into ash ("I don't feel so good!"), in such a short period of time. Do kids get as much of a kick out of that as middle-aged adult men? I would have been a little saddened as a kid if one of the TMNT died in their movies. Bring back the kind of movies where Superman can undo the last several minutes of time by racing around the world.

Dilbert, there should be a limit for even massive furries such as yourself as to how much you'll forgive for a feature having cat girls.

the simple fact is that ed woods would not even exist for posterity without this 'cult' bad movie appeal. his movies all properly belong to b-movie schlock reels and grindhouse cinemas. there were umpteen numbers of directors, writers/screenwriters, etc, working this seamiest of seam back in that day. i'm pretty sure ed woods wrote about 100 softcore porno books, as well. he was a hack, pure and simple, not a 'misunderstood genius'.

the fact that so many people hold his name up as a shorthand for utterly artless film-making is a quirk of history, and quite seriously the only way that he would ever have been remembered. imagine being snarky over the reputation of ed woods. lmao how fucking clueless can you be?

Who's still invoking Pepe in 2022? It's like either a maga facebook boomer thing or an emoji installed by every few twitch streamers so the kiddies have something to spam.

so long, my son - 9/10.

first chinese film with an all-chinese cast that i've seen in a long while. very ambitious film and utterly captivating. wow.

haven't seen this sort of 'interior' exploration of the experience of modernisation in china before.

They have another one lined up for '23. "Halloween Ends"

Somebody pointed out that the premise of the movie doesn't make sense but I don't know how familiar you are with the whole thing.

There should be more movies like Freddy vs. Jason.

Anyway that's just what we need right now. Movies with righteous, white suburbanite vigilantes chasing people down in pickup trucks with guns and clubs. Why didn't somebody just bring a limb shredder in that case.

A parody movie channel called the raging bald guy "I did my own research guy".


Anyhow, the new scream got bad reviews. I still want to see it but will wait until it is streaming

I watch one Halloween clip and suddenly I'm getting Bigfoot videos from 'History' Channel in my feed. Coincidence?!
