Off-Topic » Movies & TV Club

@takashichea: @ElHa:

I'm PMing you guys in the hopes that we can keep this club active. And the only way to that is to discuss things in the thread. So, I'll be updating this more often. If you don't want me to bother you with PMs relating to this thread, please send a reply back saying so.

So, without further ado, here's the first update.

Maps to the Stars

Director David Cronenberg is teaming up again with Twilight Robert Pattinson. The two have previously collaborated on the divisive film, Cosmopolis, which was a commentary of capitalism and the modern society. Based on the trailer for this film, it appears that Cronenberg will be commentating on the culture of celebrity, a similar theme which his son, Brandon Cronenberg had explored in his 2012 film Antiviral.

Now, some of you are probably thinking that since Robert Pattinson is in the movie, it is without a doubt bad. And I can understand why people feel this way because Pattinson has been in some really bad movies (ex. Remember Me). However, since Twilight, Robert Pattinson's career in the film industry has been much more interesting now that he has the fame to court better directors with more out of the box ideas.

Plot Summary: The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star.
One of Sanford’s clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the ’60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night. Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, Agatha, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania…

Yes. It's another Robert Pattinson film. This time, he's playing a role that does not involve a limo or vampires. I don't know much about the director's previous films, but the trailer says he's a "visionary," which can be taken alot of ways. The trailer looks nice, but I'll need to see more.

Then Green Inferno

Plot Summary: A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe. Unfortunately, they crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected.

Hey! We hadn't had one of these movies since the 1980s, which is probably the point of the movie. I'm guessing director Eli Roth is trying to stir up some hardcore nostalgia by making some pseudo grindhouse films al la Quentin Tarantino. And it looks like he is succeeding because this looks like Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox's long lost brother. He even attempted to try to convince us that this tragedy actually happened at the end of the trailer. That's when you know that your cannibal exploitation movie is authentic.

Gone Girl

GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

Written by Gillian Flynn, a Entertain Weekly critic turned writer, this novel has been receiving some great acclaim by critics and is getting a movie adaption based on sheer popularity. That's a pretty big deal for a big that is not a series like Harry Potter or the Hunger Games. Flynn has been praised by some famous people such as Stephen King. In the words of US Vice President Joe Biden: "This is a fucking big deal."

The Leftovers

Earlier this evening, HBO released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming drama series, The Leftovers. The story takes place after the Rapture, centering on the people in a small town that didn’t make the cut. Unlike last week’s teaser which was more of an enticing announcement for people who didn’t know anything about the series, this new teaser hints at an interesting mix of reflective mystery and violent intensity.

So, basically, the series will be Jericho with a bigger budget and a chance at staying on air. Looking forward to this series.

We don't know the full range of Naruto and Sasuke's new abilities and we don't even know if Kenpachi will ever get a Bankai. Therefore, I'm locking this thread.

Cramming as many bland characters and narratives into one small restaurant as it can, Tasting Menuan international co-production set in Barcelona but shot entirely in Ireland—doesn’t even remotely qualify as flavorful.
-AV Club review for the film "Tasting Menu"

Ireland's tax incentives must be off the charts!

With Kenpachi's new power levels, we'll be seeing alot more of this face. And to think, he hasn't removed his eye patch or released his Bankai (if he has one that is).

Kenpachi's new and improved rape face!

General Discussion » Age Survey in Anime Vice (2014)

@takashichea: Well, even if you did mess up the age range, it doesn't appear to have affected the data too greatly.

Another purpose of this poll was to see if Anime Vice's community was aging or not. I had this weird theory that after the sale out, we lost a lot of young folks. I felt Tom Pinchuk and Sam Weller's best audience were older folks.

I don't think we can prove anything unless we get data of the demographics before the buy out.

Off-Topic » My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Club

@Daniel_Newton: @takashichea: @waybig1010101:

Behold the Brony documentary!

Brent Hodge’s documentary A Brony Tale, which premieres April 26 at the Tribeca Film Festival, delves into the world of “Bronies.” As we well know by now, bronies are the older, male fans of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, a show about a Hasbro toy aimed at young girls.
The documentary revolves around BronyCon in New York, which is attended by Ashleigh Ball, the voice actor that plays both Rainbow Dash and Applejack. The trailer also offers one-on-one interviews with bronies from various walks of life, including one who’s serving in the military and one who confidently tells the camera, “You ain’t a man unless you watching My Little Pony, son.”
A Brony Tale follows in the footsteps of 2013’s Kickstarted film Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans Of My Little Pony, which featured the show’s creator, Lauren Faust, as well as voice actor Tara Strong. Written by Sonia Saraiya of AVclub.com: link to original article
