an amazing film done by a real auteur: joe d'amato the genius behind the emanuelle franchise (and the 11 days 11 nights thing). an island (somehwere in the caribbean) where people are getting killed? it's hard to tell because you only see one person killed so thats not really a mcguffin. 

 

amazing music as always but , i feel there should be a deeper message being communicated- or maybe not. why not show this and call it a day? 

 

i really wish i watched this on the big screen instead of IT

overrated as hell. with all the hype this film has been gathering and then the box office figures you'd think this was brilliant. it's basically stranger things the movie. bill skarsgård's pennywise is less playful than the tim curry version. he's supposed to be more scary except- i never felt scared. all the kids do a pretty good job- but i honestly think i like the kids from the mini series more mainly because they felt more realistic to the characters whereas these kids are more like kids acting as those characters.

 

top notch production design for the kids room though. every time they went into someone's room, i felt like tagging along and checking things out too.

I totally agree. It wasn't scary. The jump scares didn't scare. And that one kid from Stranger Things should just shut the fuck up. 2 hours of nonstop dick jokes loses it's charm... even if you're in Strangers Things which seems to be everyone's cup of tea. Also, that fake laughter they added to Georgie while he was chasing his stupid boat was absolutely horrible. Who the fuck decides to add something ilke that?

But yeah, it was a long episode of Stranger Things that didn't really know if it was a horror movie for grown-ups for a Goosebumps story for kids - with dick jokes.

 

Also, the guy in front of me in the cinema was so scared he kept rocking back and forth in his chair so he kept hitting my knees with the back of his chair. I think I gave him a bigger jump scare than anything the movie was capable of when I grabbed the back rest and shock it violently. I felt kinda bad afterwards.

the east - the scene where they are eating and the crusty leader asks her to eat soup without using her hands and she struggles and then the other crusties all smugly take their spoons in their mouths and feed the person next to them in one deliberate motion.

 

I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THAT FUCKING SCENE

 

I was literally told some Christian parable story along the exact same line back in school when I was like 6 lmao

I watched D'amato's Porno Holocaust tonight, pretty hilarious. The soundtrack is decent 70s analogue synth + disco, but the plot is non-existent. For the first hour it's a standard early 80s Italian porn flick, then some potato dick mutant shows up and pretty much fucks and murders every girl in the movie. They seemed to be ship wrecked or something? Who knows.

I agree with most of what you both said although I came away with a generally positive impression. I found the dick jokes charming, I guess it's been long enough since I was inundated with them that they're mildly amusing to me. I will say that I wholeheartedly agree that it wasn't frightening at all, except for one cleverly placed jump scare. I was really disappointed when they introduced the clown because he was so utterly unfrightening and the score was so boring I was afraid that was all this movie would have to offer. I'm no expert but it seems to me that the director is still trying to find their footing with pacing and atmosphere. I would give them another chance for sure.

 

I would maybe add one to the score to bring it to a total of 7 cans of paper boat wax.

my showing of it was packed full of rowdy latino teens. the only thing that rivaled this level of cholo was the later fast and the furious movies and maybe paranormal activity. i was expecting to see a moonbounce with racing fins floating around the parking lot. anyway it was horrible, although i did like watching the fat kid get cucked repeatedly by a child with a stutter. really put things in perspective.

Chiming in with sweepstakes here. I read IT when I was around the age of the kids in the book and lived that fucking story, so I will never be happy with an adaptation unless it's some 5 season HBO thing directed by Lynch or something.

Nonetheless I had a lot of fun watching this. The your mom jokes amused me and the 'scary' bits (not scary) were well done in a horror funhouse/rollercoaster way.

 

I'd forgotten about the fake kid laugh they added to Georgie though, yeah I remember that irritating me also.

 

did they do the preteen gangbang in this one? I still lol every time I think about that idea popping into SK's head.

 

Unfortunately not. :^)

It gets better:

 

 

 

They all take turns and afterwards say "did you?" to her but she's like nah.

Then the fat kid goes last, the one secretly in love with her, and he has a really big dick and she does a cum while thinking about birds.

 

I am not making this up

I liked the book. It was definitely fucked up.

 

Hey if it weren't for Stephen King we wouldn't have The Shining either.

it was his fucked-up idea of holding on to a bond between the group who are all on the verge of going their separate ways. a kind of post-traumatic cumming-of-age thing. you have to read it to get the idea.

 

I too read It at a formative time in my life but I always wtf'd at that bit and as a (pseudo)grownup now I think whatever he was aiming for there fell on its face. it's not discussed in pop culture talk about the book afaik and would never be considered for a film adaptation, which makes this hyped nostalgia-capitalising 2017 redo a bit ironic or summat.

 

doesn't disincline me from enjoying some SK quite a bit still.

 

edit: fun fact, I got bashed over the head with a copy of It. twice, iirc. for a 1000+ page book, this is no giggling matter.

      Title says it all: post a still, others guess.

      So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film).
       
      Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake.
       
      Here is a list of their films:
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris
       
      What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines...
       
      No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best)..
       
      In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc).
       
      In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems
       
      I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others.

      Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this?
       

       
      p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch).
       
      p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

      Josh Cooley has a book coming out featuring famous scenes from R-rated movies in the style of children's books. Really cool stuff!

      Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this.
       
      If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best.
       
      Thanks a lot!
       
      PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game

      Didn't see a post about this when I searched, so I thought I'd mention it. Back in October, Biosphere posted the silent film 'Man With A Movie Camera' to Youtube complete with his score and I only just found it. I have the 2cd set of Substrata that includes this, but I hadn't seen the movie with the score synced up before. It's really awesome how parts of the music act as sound for what's going on in the film. For example, the sample 'sorry to wake you' coincides with a woman waking up. And the various spectral sounds that seem like part of the music when you listen to the score by itself turn out to be foley for machines and trains when you watch the movie.
       
      There is a brief childbirth scene, so you might get a bit grossed out, but this is balanced out by the cute topless Soviet woman giving herself a mud bath. Kind of racy for 1929.
