Seems like it might be research or something...
Probably good for someone "in tha biz" to cram tons of movies they might not normally watch.

I realise that. Must be hard to "switch off" and enjoy a film without having one eye criticising all the time.

I like to call that "the Segata effect."

"This is shit, that's shit, everything is shit. Everyone is doing everything wrong. Oh no, I really like it myself, but it's shit, it's just really shit."
:lol:

No, Kenny doesn't suffer from that. I think he's still distanced enough to enjoy things. He's just been watching some really "off" stuff lately.

All in the 'found footage' genre, that must be the research part you mentioned. Sounds like so much junk in that genre. After Blair Witch pioneered it there's been so many lacklustre copycats. I do recommend Grave Encounters, though, on that note.

Nah I watched this on my own admission. I heard it was one of the most controversial films of all time and decided to see if it lived up to its reputation. The film is just DISGUSTING. People eating shit off the ground and pissing in their mouths. I had to stop watching because it was less of a film and more of a German porn (even though this film is Italian).

The found footage films I watch are research based for me, but goddammit...I DO want to see a GOOD ONE for once! Very few are watchable. But more often than not, I watch movies because I'm genuinely interesting in watching them. I'm still an audience member, it's very important to keep that in mind when doing this kind of work.

Being controversial for the sake of it sounds like..

....what the fuck. Seriously.


Did you watch it all the way through? I didn't. I'm no prude, but that film was really offensive. Sex slaves (chained up) who are forced to act like dogs and then forced to copulate in front of their "masters" before being raped by them; mass orgies; eating shit off the floor...It really is the most disgusting film I've ever seen in my life.

Here's some advice: don't watch Cannibal Holocaust, it's another extremely repulsive film where the "filmmaker" made a snuff film with actual real deaths of people, animals and real rape, all in a horrible fashion. It's revolting that the director got off from the charges levied against him, he is/was a disgusting excuse for a "human being".

I've seen Cannibal Holocaust, it was pretty gruesome too. I don't remember watching that one all the way through but that's mostly out of disinterest. Anti-Christ is probably one of the most shocking movies i've ever seen, but at least that one was trying to tell some sort of cohesive story. Lars von Trier, man.

And no, I stopped near the end. I just couldn't take it anymore. I wouldn't think ANYONE would name this as one of their favorite films but people like David Cross have. I mean, WTF.

^He's "edgy" though. You stopped at the right time, I stopped it around the time when they were killing all of the slaves by scalping them to death...I was like, fuck that. Ha.

Came back from Desolation of Smaug.

I liked it better than the first, everything was not over-indulgent with the action and the pacing was better this time around. I even dug the love story. My favorite stuff were the sets, fucking hell they made everything look beautiful. I loved the way they did the architecture, tall but claustrophobic. And I wasn't disappointed in Smaug's design either which I'm relieved about.

I didn't like how it ended though and i'm not alone in that sentiment. It just ended in a straight up cliffhanger rather than a satisfying "end" and a tease for the conclusion of the trilogy.
