Re: What are you watching right now?

Stranger than fiction:
Exit Through the Gift Shop
This is not a film about Banksy, it's a film about Thierry Guetta, a.k.a. Mr Brainwash.
The story is so abstruse that it has been suspected to be Banksy's creation and a hoax, but according to various sources, this guy really exists and everything went down pretty much as portrayed in the film. So it is a real documentary. How very, very weird.

1991, MTV Rockumentary on The Clash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unT9-mgmR4s

If you ask me what my favorite bands are, I say that I put the Beatles in their own category. After that, my number 1 and 2 bands, ahead of The Who, The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, are The Police And The Clash

An astute music critic once commented that The Clash were, and I'm paraphrasing, punk's only art-rock band. They were certainly progressive. They correctly foresaw the international/world music trend with Sandinista...

The second platter is flipping awesome. Electric fiddle and flanger on the vocals FTW...

Re: What are you watching right now?

I watched Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, yesterday afternoon. It is stupid, but enjoyable. It dawned on me that the big, final fight scene is a lot like watching professional wrestling. The bad guy makes a killer blow, but the good guy recovers and returns the favor. Repeats about three times, then the good guy finally wins.

Re: What are you watching right now?

For some reason this movie made an impression on me, very deep and profound. Forget the crappy special effects, the story/plot is on another level. This is not one of the b grade horror movies, it is actually well thought out.

For about the last week I've been watching every episode of "Peep Show" from every series.

Interesting video but it leaves me wondering, have those two people wondered why scarcity happens? It is the reason that scarcity raises the price of an object. When there was a lot of oil and when the amount taken from the earth was high then the price was low. If there is no cost for using oil we will quickly run out of oil. When oil became more scarce and fewer wells were producing it the cost became high. I cant see how that could be overcome, that simple need and the scarcity value of raw materials

Yes that needs to be taken into account, probably a bit too much utopian perhaps in that video. Technology needs to find a way around money, oil and scarcity before any real progress is made.

Re: What are you watching right now?

The Social Network (2010)

I thought this would be a story about social media, mostly facebook, vaguely leaning on reality, but fully dramatised.
But it's much more real, almost a full documentary. They use real names, real occurences.
I constantly checked back with the wikipedia article for the first 30min or so, and it all checked out.

Zuckerberg is portrayed as an absolute a*hole right from the start, and so I loved the film right from the start, until the end.
But that really isn't its only appeal; it's a well dramatised documentary that does not only show how things really went down, but also critically examines the whole idea of social media itself (and making money off it).

It begins with a girl (Erica Albright; she seems to be fictional) splitting up with him after an insane conversation:

You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an a*hole.

And it ends with another woman telling him:

You're not an a*hole, Mark. You're just trying so hard to be.

The wikipedia article cites some criticism, also about historical accuracy, but interestingly it all seems to boil down to "things weren't that dramatic, we were mostly just coding and eating pizza" - nobody seems to dispute Mr Z's character as such.

Re: What are you watching right now?

I've been watching some German documentaries about Cyber Security recently.
I always delete them after watching, which sucks when I later want to share something.
I should start keeping a journal I guess.

Here's one, with different links:
https://vid.wxzm.sx/watch?v=tSAQi1ePxVA
https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/tSAQi1ePxVA
https://vimeo.com/ondemand/terrorjagdimnetz/221646799
https://vimeo.com/ondemand/terrorjagdimnetz4k/229061979

Excerpt:

The supposed logic is: we can not find the needle in the haystack, so we need more hay.

If you think that out consistently, then the final solution is total monitoring. Everywhere, anytime, everyone. What has saved us so far was less the protection of human rights, but rather the sometimes horrendous costs.

but it doesn't work.
the film cites various exanmples where terror attacks could have been prevented because the information about the perpetrator was available, but nothing happened because nobody could actually find that information in time.
the film is about changing this approach (succesfully, with software).
In itself very scary for our online  privacy, but this is a very interesting docu nevertheless.

Rewatching Ranma½ ... aired on German TV in the early 2000s, so it's quite nostalgic. I rewatched all of DuckTales earlier this year.

Re: What are you watching right now?

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (David Lynch, 1992)

This is my favorite movie now, a perfect blend of American comedy and horror. Every second of screen time, visual and audio, is amazing.

Films like this, Blade Runner, Twelve Monkeys, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Seventh Seal, Touch of Evil, Taxi Driver, The Big Lebowski, Seven Samurai... It's not about telling a story that gets you from point A to point B. It's about reveling in every second that gets you there. Disney/Marvel/DC/Star Wars reboot, are you even listening to me???

And boy, does this film do that. The soundtrack is horrifying jazz, while the video is like the TV series was, a nineties soap opera. You don't even know what the film's about until it's half way finished, and then the terror of it hits you. So haunting, so disgusting, so painful... so beautiful in terms of cinema.

The Good Place
Seasons 1 & 2 are very much recommended. Trailer for Season 1. Deceptive. The plot makes several U-turns during the course of the show.
