Kimi no Na wa is amazing, I highly recommend it. RADWIMPS made the soundtrack, which is really good as well. I'm not going to spoil the story here, so just go check it out ^^

Herschell Gordon Lewis a.k.a the "Godfather of Gore" - He invented the SPLATTER genre of horror films. I believe that, earlier in his career, he made a number of porn films as well.

Makes sense that he'd be one of Cade's favorite then.
HAS ANYONE SEEN THE MOVIE "NELL"?! SOMEONE HAS TO HAVE SEEN IT BESIDES ME!
Umm I think? I recognize the name. Probably seen it as a child since I have no memory of it now.

So does his porn have SPLATTER as well?

Probably, but I am guessing it is NOT blood.
Pity. I am now disappointed.

I don't think splooge or urine qualifies as splatter.

It's not splattery enough.

Also, I am much disappoint that no one has seen Nell.
Oh, I know Nelly

He's a rapper.

Oh, and I know Nelly Furtado! She's an amazing singer!! I love her.

No, Mattias. Bad Mattias.
Soylent Green. Hell of a movie.

It is a good movie with a potent political message, well it tis the season:

  • Clockwork Orange
  • Handmaid's Tale
  • Bulworth
  • Wag the Dog
  • Rollerball (the original 1975 release)
I was shocked that my parents, being as old as they are, had NEVER seen Soylent Green. They watched it last night and my dad ended up guessing the big reveal.

I remember it made me cry. Specifically the part where Sol was dying.

I don't think I could bring myself to watch A Clockwork Orange. It'd bother me too much. I did read the book though. I think it might've been for school.
It should bother you, especially with what is going on today. It is not so hard to watch because the acting is theatrical with a considerable amount of narration rather then filmed "real" which takes off enough of the edge. If Kubrick had filmed it straight it would have been too horrifying to watch - the brilliance of Kubrick. Of the 5 movies I listed the Handmaid's Tale is the most difficult to watch because it is filmed straight - not over acted - there is no humor in the film.
Not that I expected any actual creative risks from Disney but Rogue One looks likes ass. All the endless possibilities for stories in the Star Wars universe and it's just the same uninspired formula.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is fantastic. I didn't really want to watch it, but I'm glad I did. It's such a gorgeous film.
Ok so this aint a movie but it's such an amazing tv show check it out. It's funny but episode 10 is really impactful. Huey's such a genius
I loved watching The Boondocks.

The point of that character was a critique of the author's naive ideals he held as a youth.
Huh, I didn't know that. That's pretty interesting.
I watched "Он – дракон" [He's a Dragon] Really beautiful filmography. I liked how the director portrayed the folklore in the story. This is a really beautiful film with an interesting story, a mix of fantasy, folklore and romance. Something to watch when you need something uplifting. Unlike much that comes from Hollywood these days, the film's strength is in the story, which is not overwhelmed by excessive special effects - although the transformation into a dragon and the dragon itself are very well done.

I don't know if this film is available with English dub/sub but if you find it, I highly recommend watching.
Just watched John Wick 2. I must say that was some damn fine gun-fu. In terms of action I think it was better than the original, but plot wise I'm not sure it was as good. But then again, is the plot really what you're going for in a movie like this?
My wife watched creepy on an airplane flight, said it was very well done....
I watched the 1973 animated film "Fantastic Planet" today. It is easily one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen, and it actually made me kind of uncomfortable (granted, I wasn't in a good frame of mind while viewing it).

It's a great movie though. The music is cool too.
