PSYCHO II (1983)
I initially watched this because I thought it would be trashy and shit and I was really taken back by how good it was. Performances, camerawork, music all solid, super creepy with tons of twists and I totally, totally recommend it.

MIRAGE MEN (2013)
A documentary on US Air Force Disinformation Agents who purposely fucked with UFO enthusiasts giving them false information to spread amongst the UFO community. Really fascinating, and very hard to tell when the lies start and end. Also recommended.

I saw this. Good example of low budget film making I guess, but it really only has one speed. Great dialogue though.

liked it better as expected, tbh. didn't know how i'd react to a 50's movie.. not quite as thrilling as 'advertised', but still very enjoyable..

Re: What movies/tv shows are you robots watching?!

no one does cold detachment better than hitchcock imo. works so well contrasting the puppy love sick sentimentality.
check out Rope, Vertigo, Frenzy, and of course Psycho.

Re: What movies/tv shows are you robots watching?!

Hitchcock rules. Haven't seen a movie he made I didn't like. Granted some are better than others, of course.

Apparently this opened in 1983 to terrible reviews, it was the last film by the guy who made Cabaret (which I remember liking, I haven't seen it in a long time)
This concerns the real life rise and murder of a playboy playmate in the late 70s. It is pure disco sleaze, Eric Roberts is fantastic as the loser husband. It's not an easy watch but I would certainly recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it.

the australian one, starring willem dafoe.

watched Primer last nite. yeah it was a good for achievement for a budget of 7kUSD, but overall it was bit too elitist for my taste. they tried the lynchian approach but it just dissolved into wank near the end. i can guess a lot of Anonymous teen hacker -types digging this tho.

I liked Primer a lot. I think it's the tie they are wearing. You can follow which person is which by the tie. Watch it again. wink

it was! extinction of animal species is not a theme dealt with in cinema before i think. it just made me so angry and sad to think of all the species humans already have directly or indirectly exterminated. we need population control.

Re: What movies/tv shows are you robots watching?!

Still sick, marathon ensues:

DOWNLOADED -
It's the story of Napster. It was pretty interesting if you like documentaries.

PSYCHO III -
Still pretty strong, I don't know why I didn't watch these before, I guess I assumed they were awful, but no. A lot more gore than before, pretty strong performances. Worth a watch.

TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL -
Two simple folk get mistaken for cannibal hillbillies. I liked it a lot, it's pretty funny and sweet in places and you should watch it if you haven't already.

then began the William Friedkin blitz...

JADE -
I can't believe Friedkin thinks this is one of his best, and I'm pretty sure it's ONLY ruined by the dude from CSI Miami. He's not very good in this at all.

RAMPAGE -
Really good serial killer court room drama.

Killer Joe -
This was amazing, it can turn between very funny and super disturbing within a scene. You can see why Matthew McConaheyheyhey got True Detective. Definitely one of Friedkin's best movies to date. Up there with The Exorcist and To Live And Die In LA

Rules Of Engagement -
Pretty good performances but kind of simple court room drama thing about the army. It's not bad, but it didn't really grip me.

The Hunted -
This was Friedkin's Rambo. Which leads to an eventual long punch up and I didn't really care. It's not bad. It's fine if you're sick I guess, not too complex for my bad brain, but not one of his best

To Live And Die In LA -
Thought it was worth a rewatch because the last time I saw this someone gave me a white powder that made me go funny (i thought it was something else, it was shit and made me feel sick) I think it holds up still, the cast is good, the characters have some depth and that ending is great.

They all had car chases in them. Please don't make me choose between Friedkin and Verhoeven.

Re: What movies/tv shows are you robots watching?!

I saw Irreversible.  Very heavy film.  I was a bit disappointed that the Bangalter music that is so well regarded on IFM didn't feature more prominently.

Re: What movies/tv shows are you robots watching?!

Silent Hill -
I was kind of expecting this to be awful, but in the end I thought it was pretty good, the atmosphere was right. I forgot how much time I lost to those games. I should play them again. Not bad at all.

Silent Hill: Revelations -
Shit Hill.
