  1. serious GAS for this boy, seems like if Elektron made the DFAM and added a lovely mono synth to boot!
  2. Southern Comfort Defo a bit of a gem! It's a mix between Deliverance and Predator...so you know you got something nice cooking! Watched it on Amazon Prime here in Ireland, guessing its available other regions? The River Wild Had never seen it, but remember always seeing posters/VHS's of it in my local video rental shop. Was great fun for what it was. Also on Amazon Prime Capone Wow, this was so bad! Nothing really happens except Tom Hardy shitting himself and barely stringing sentences together. Proper definition of a waste of time. Capernaum Oh my, haven't gotten as angry at a film in long time. Just pure exploitative garbage. I would never have even dreamed of watching it but it was suggested by a friend in our movie club so felt obliged. Save yourself and everyone else, avoid this like the plague. I have a big issue when filmmakers use children in their films, especially when they are the lead. This kid gave an incredible performance, but to put him through all this shit is just not right or to have the pressure of performing and have the whole film weigh on his shoulders. The cherry on top was seeing the director cast herself in the role of the hero prosecutor
  3. Thanks for sharing, would never have heard about this! Recon there isn't much fear of it bricking itself or anything spooky like that?
  4. apologies for the double post, can't edit the one above, but just came across this on wiki which I found rather interesting and perhaps a light into why its not talked about as much, or rather didn't get as big a push at the time of its release I also just found that audience member quote too funny not to share
  5. this was a true gem - thanks for the rec! Also saw 'Knives Out' recently, after watching Deathtrap i'd say they took a few ideas
  6. Sad to hear. Didn't really know him but his positive presence would definitely stand out to me whenever scrolling through threads. Seemed like a really creative and imaginative person, RIP.
  7. Had a dip into a bit of some classic Kurosawa recently Drunken Angel Excellent stuff, so much innovative techniques for its time and never a frame wasted. Takashi Shimura is incredible here, probably best i've seen him. Toshiro Mifune is also great, hardly recognisable at this young age. Stray Dog Also great, interesting to see it being 'considered a precursor to the contemporary police procedural and buddy cop film genres' - goes on a little too long at times but good stuff. Interesting, alike with Drunken Angel, that at this point Shimura is the leading man with Mifune soon to overtake and become the leading star. The Bad Sleep Well I love what this film sets out to say and explore - however it just goes on that bit too long and drags at places, but overall it's still excellent. Love the ending, they don't do em' like that anymore. Beautiful cinematography. Red Beard Wasn't too taken with this - leaning a bit too much into the soppy side of things, also too long (has the classic 'intermission' part and all) but definitely has its moments and a nice message conveyed overall. Non-Kurosawa: Harakiri Proper classic, great storytelling and cinematography - not to mention awesome soundtrack! Diego Maradona Good watch! Was a big fan of Senna when it came out so was looking for a similar experience and wasn't disappointed. This style of documentary is such a breath of fresh air as opposed to the current close up interview style. Just good clean editing does wonders, no need for emotionally exploitive reaction shots
  8. love Barton! Stand out Orson flicks for me are Touch of Evil and F is for Fake. Also really loved the Netflix docu they did called 'They'll Love Me When I'm Dead.'
  9. so glad I didn't scratch that MPC itch, the slice MIDI triggering is well overdue but grateful it even came! Also the per-pattern BPM thing, I was so confused when I found it didn't do that when i first got it thanks to the Digi, looking forward to try expand my octa brain again 🙂
  10. Game Night Pretty decent bit of fun. It's definatley more than a date movie, but feels like it fits that category, and within it i'd say its one of the best of its kind - but outside of that it's also just good fun with nice twists and turns. Hard to see Jason Bateman as the star leading man in this sort of film, carries it off well but can't help but feel it's a parallel universe type of thing going on - but no surprise when I saw he produced it
  11. Rituals Real gem. It's basically the worst camping trip ever - 5 old friends, all doctors, go off on their yearly trip and stuff starts going bad, real bad. Pretty low budget and there doesn't seem to be any HD scans, which is a shame, but worth the watch even if you can only find a lower quality version. It seems to be compared to Deliverance, which I can see the connections, but it's own thing really. 9 Decent slightly adult animation. Cool sci-fi ideas and good action sequences but suffers from other problems.
  12. dang the Opsix sounds amazing! Happy with my reface DX but can only imagine how much more fun Korg could make it 🤑
  13. already posted about it a while back and not sure if you said you saw it or not (also may not be in your Netflix region), but - 'Love on Delivery', so good! From Beijing with Love Probably my least favourite of the Stephen Chows i've been watching, released the same year as 'Love on Delivery', quite different in tone but still maintains good solid comedy moments, just not as relentless as LOD, but in anycase Chow is a born leading star so its hard to not like!
  14. Nice work! End sequence is great Were you using Blender or any other programs?

    Also made a music video for one of the tracks 'Easter' made up of old Japanese VHS tapes - hope you enjoy!
  16. Fair point! Just saw The Duelists not so long ago and really enjoyed it so it must have re-juiced my Ridely tastebuds...have since rinsed and washed I heard he's been directing his latest film from an issolated tent, here in Ireland. No one is allowed to be in the same space as him. Wonder how that will work out

    Been working on a solo project the last few months and today is the release date of the debut album - 'Palm303'! Our good fellow WATMM'r @Nil did a beautiful job mastering it, he was an absolute pleasure to work with and I can't recommend him more! The album was all recorded directly to tape on an old Tascam 244 with a bunch of hardware. Have a limited run of cassette tapes available via bandcamp: https://nickcoolroy.bandcamp.com/ Tis' streaming now on most platforms - hope you enjoy! x https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/nickcoolroy/palm303
  18. Paranorman Surprised by this one! Wiki describes it best 'stop-motion animated dark fantasy comedy horror film' - inspired by B-movie zombie movies. Has a great look and aesthetic, utilised some cool production techniques. Although for all ages it definitely has a charm older audiences will dig, especially loved the intro scene of a fake schlock horror film. Perfect Halloween fix for those not into big scares. American Gangster Jaysus this was poor. Don't know what to make of Ridley anymore. I can see how it might have done well at the time when it was released, especially watching it in the cinema as the big blockbuster of the month - but watching now it just seems to be so empty, dull painting by numbers. Great cast, shot well but no substance. If it was close to the truth it I'd give it a pass as its maybe attempting to be a faithful retelling, but apparently most of it is just made up for dramatic effect.
  19. Thanks for all the above! Feel I need to read/hear these words every now and then to give me a boost of encourgment to push my octatrack workflow further As modey also mentioned, one can get lost/overwhelmend by the seemingly endless possibilites of the machine I find i've been stuck just using it as a live mixer/effects/remixer and want to get more out of it - think for me I need to treat it like Ableton and start to layout tracks with it by recording my lines in and seeing how further I can push them before hitting the DAW/tape Side note on embracing the limitations of the Octatrack - on my last project I paired the 4 outs with the 4 inputs on my Tascam 244, soul brothers from differnt decades!
  20. Yes indeed, watched most of his films - except The Castle of Cagliostro i believe! must check that soon Think when Ponyo came out originally I wasn't aware of his work or Studio Ghibli and just disregarded it as some kids film, shortly after I think I first saw The Cat Returns and thus started my awakening
  21. wow excellent stuff here - nice find!
  22. The God of Cookery So fun, Stephen Chow/10 - the man can't do wrong
  23. Just picked up the DX, really liking the sound so far! Not a fan of the soundmondo process of getting patches on tho, so unintuitive to find stuff, most things are tagged with every tag possible so you just end up scrolling down and down - anyone have any other techniques? Having said that I started making my own and you really dont have to do too much to start getting some magical sounds Wish it had something along the lines of the Volca FM with the dedicated attack and decay knobs
  24. Lil' warning to users - I just sold my OP-Z a couple days ago and hadn't been using it for months, though was storred away safely in its original box, when the buyer recieved it there was an issue with the battery not charging properly and apparently this happens quite a bit to them if the battery isn't actively being used often. The soloution was something along the lines of taking the battery out and connecting it with some wires to another battery source (you can find a proper description online if you ever need it) just so you know!
