Yesterday, we watched Serenity (2005).

Also, it's just a hunch, but I found the Expanse sci-fi novel series' Cptn. Holden and his gang to be eerily similar to the gang of Serenity, so I wouldn't rule out the former was inspired by the latter (at least to some degree).

I think the Expanse makers have been borrowing heavily from everywhere; I'm currently reading a book that has elements in it that remind me heavily of The Expanse. Come to think of it, it's well possible that Rajaniemi got inspiration from elsewhere... so maybe the Expanse makers stole it from Rajaniemi, who in turn stole it from some previous sci-fi writer... it's all good though.
Anyhow, the type of Serenity / Expanse series, I want more of!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Have any of you seen the film called Melancholia
its a great film - a sort of science fiction psychological drama
hard to describe but its about how an artist who is about to get
married sees her future, and her artistic individuality, as a world
like the earth that is about to be obliterated by another world colliding into it
it's about how a marriage is two worlds colliding, It's about the depression
of losing your identity to others

heres the trailer

The telephone is an antiquity - you never know who is calling, there is no image, it is an outmoded product which constantly disrupts work (Ralf Hutter (Kraftwerk)) ps: my wife knows how much I dislike being disrupted at Work - Ralf Hutter hit the nail on the head there

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

The Abyss (1989). Phantastic James Cameron Sci-Fi movie; incredible film set and thrilling scenes.

Super 8 (2011). Yet another "good" Sci-Fi movie, albeit the premise is kind of shallow. I really like how the kids are portraid in this one. Nowadays it would be just a couple of angsty teenies with smartphones (probably).

Snowpiercer (2013). This is a really cool movie. I think the anime series Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is based on a ripoff of this setting. Perhaps there are more similar films I don't know with this concept ("train running through dead earth").

For the set and filmographic craftsmanship alone. I doubt this could be done 'better' just by using more modern technology.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I could not agree more.

I was awe struck first time I watched it.

And one of the "rare" movies where some 'unknown' isn't out to kill us!

Nor us it ... in the end.

With a beautiful storyline as well!

I've seen it. Excellent movie. Had to watch it twice though, wasn't in the right frame of mind to appreciate it the first time.

"Take Shelter" (2011) is another good movie.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I have a new batch to report on…

Arctic (2019). Nothing special, except for when you like pondering that kind of situations.

In Cold Blood (1967). A new favourite of mine. In some aspects, feels like a close sibling to The Green Mile (1999). Highly recommended.

Roadgames (1981). Very good Aussie movie, whatever that means. I like the unique set of characters. Recommended.

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018). A fine dark thriller. Recommended.

Free Solo (2018). It's a sports documentary, but what it documents is inspiring. Highly recommended.

American Made (2017). Attempt at capturing some of Scarface (1983) and The Infiltrator (2016) and absolutely achieves to be entertaining, but it falls pretty flat in all other aspects and is exactly as unimganitatively produced as you'd expect a movie Tom Cruise is starring in to be.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017). A difficult one. I dislike the lacking depth of the female lead character (very stereotypical) but the overall composition is good and original. Recommended.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

My posts have gone into movie tangents, it's been making me look up lists, I stumbled upon this one, yadda yadda yadda... I'm trying to name all the clips, tackling the first 4 mins 50 secs first...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro2x8gd2v-M

So, I think these I know without a search engine. Open the "Show more" dialog to cheat.

1) Randy Quaid in Independence Day

2) Arnold in Predator

3) Al Pacino in Scarface

4) "Rowdy" Roddy Piper in They Live

5) Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry

6) Arnold in Terminator

7) Getting tougher now, Stallone in Cobra

glasses Chuck Norris in Invasion USA. What the hell?!!?? I need to watch this, it looks cheese-tastic!

9) Carl Withers - I have no idea. Maybe Force 10 from Navarone?

10) John Wayne in True Grit

11) Kurt Russell in Stargate

Someone take over. Some Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Halloween or Friday the 13th POS, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Mummy, that South Park Thunderbirds parody, the Star Trek reboot with Chris Pine, Bruce Campbell in either the first or second Evil Dead film, what the eff is Garbage day, that looks like it should star John Kusack when he was 20, Airforce One, Arnold in Commando, Pierce Brosnan, what crappy Bond film is that? Die Hard, Nick Cage has made too much silly crap for me to even hazard a guess, Leon (AKA The Professional), that buddy-cop chick action film with Sandy Bullock and Melissa McCarthey, way to cash a big paycheck in on a big-budget, not totally terrible movie, ladies, 300, the second Die Hard? Star Trek : The Search for Spock with Christopher Lloyd as the evil Klingon captain, Goldeneye, Moonraker, Robocop, Tremors or a sequel, Logan or a prequel, Arnold in True Lies, Eric Idle in what is that piece of crap animated character? Oh shi-aving cream. Eric Idle was the villain in Casper The Friendly Ghost??? My goodness, that looks terrible. Sly in... Judge Dredd? Cobra again? I don't know. The Lion King, LOTR Fellowship of the Ring, Wild Wild West (one of the worst movies I've ever seen), The Matrix, Boondock Saints, Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight, Jack as the Joker in Tim Burton's first Batman, Christian Bale as lispy-growly Batman (he sucks in this franchise), aomw Suoerman cartoon, Death Wish starring Charles Bronson, Clint in The Outlaw Josie Wales, Lance Hendrickson landed a starring role? Never seen it, Bruce Campbell in Army of Darkness, another very popular film that I truly abhor and was in disbelief at the attention and praise it got, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hmm, Sam Jackson... Snakes On A Plane? A Marvel Movie? Captain America is The Snake On The Plane? I'd watch that.

Getting really obscure for a second, Jogn Malcovich as a tough guy. It looks like Con Air but with John instead of Nic Cage, I have no clue what film it is. I bet it's Con Air. Die Harder or Die Trying or Die Laughing or just Die already, this should never have been a franchise. Fuck you, eighties studio greed.

I know a bunch of the next movies by actor or genre but don't remember the titles. Clint in a really late Dirty Harry film, maybe The Dead Pool, American Psycho. What's that Tarantino film? It's amusing bit pretty thin. No idea (a Harry Potter film?) Next is probably Shawn Of The Dead, Jaws, Arnold in.. T3? T4? Live and Let Die, Pulp Fiction, Robocop again, POS, POS, Star Trek Borg POS, twice, Star Wars POS (Han shot first!), Sarah Connor is the Terminator's terminator, until he's sent back through time again or something with his arm chip, or both, T2 cheese, moar Terminator franchise, what was that, Wall-E? Tough one, Troy? 300 again? LOTR: Return of the King, The Princess Bride, POS,POS, Unforgiven, POS, POS, POS, X-Men, The Enforcer, Arnold POS, the rest is almost entirely crap.

South Park Team America

Sean Connery as 007 in Dr. No

Live and Let Die - agent 002? - getting knifed

Hot Fuzz is the Simon Pegg- Timoty Dalton movie

Deathly Hallows 2

Nicolas Cage and Tony Todd is from "The Rock" -- Tony Todd; underrated and under-utilized character actor.

And saying Invasion USA is cheestadtic is being way too kind.

Today I watched Nož (The Dagger) released in 1999.
Love, identity and the cycle of hate from the past to the present.

Now I have to read the novel that this film was based on.
