New China Mieville book, The City & The City is really good. Different vibe to the Bas Lag novels, more of a existential murder mystery a la Paul Auster or something.

I watched "let the right one in" when it was on Sundance ppv and still try to persuade my friends to give it a chance. By far one of the best vampire flicks ive ever seen and just completely different in every good way. ***spolier***

there was a topic thread on IMDB about the gender of the vampire. I've heard the book says its a boy thats been mutilated but the movie seems to make strong suggestions of it being a girl or even both. Either way still a great movie.

**edit** i lied i saw it on the internet not Sundance. There was a previous thread just about this movie.
http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,21799.msg748828.html#msg748828 had to go to that thread to refresh my memory :/

i nabbed a torrent of it to check it out when i was home two weekends ago. i was fairly unimpressed, it was kind of whatever. i think the rip i had though also had the shitty subtitles which really didn't help (the english was kind of whacked out). i feel that better subtitles wouldn't have improved the film significantly though.

edit: wait i just checked my copy and compared it to the link pilsner posted my subtitles were good. weird. maybe sweedish just translates oddly to english? i dunno doesn't change the fact i didn't care much for the film.

Some great movies recently, some of them documentaries. 

Right now I'm watching Control Room, which is about how Al Jazeera has portrayed the Iraqi war.  It's incredibly powerful the way they interview this one American whose beliefs are completely questioned.  It is really amazing, even if it's a little old and they talk about Bush and Rumsfeld a lot.

S21: The Killing Squad of the Khmer Rouge.  Or something to that affect.  It's these two survivors of this horrible prison camp who go back and look through stuff and one of them even talks to some of the guards there.  He tries to get them to see themselves not as victims but as the instigators of some of the horrible things they did, the guards, predictably, keep saying they were also victims.  It's another incredibly powerful documentary even if there is no conclusion.

Thirst is not a documentary but it is another absolutely incredible film from Chan-Wook Park, director of Oldboy.  If you like any of his other films this is something you need to see right now.  This and Let the Right One In are incredible vampire films.

Saw this, I concur.  While I was a huge fan of his visual flair in the Vengeance trilogy and I'm Not A Robot But That's OK, he still makes this movie distinctly his own without the flashiness of his previous films.

The Trotsky

The best, well, most entertaining anyway, film I saw at this year's IFFR. The main character is a 17 year old kid who's convinced he's the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky, hilarity ensues.

I don't know if this has already been recommended, because holy crap 14 pages, but;
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

I've liked all of his stuff that I've read, but nothing is as epic as this series. Some of the main ideas in the books are things I was thinking about when I was a little kid.
There's just such a sense of truth about it, and I can really get inside Roland's head.
It's a good series. I hope I have given a good enough reason why I think it is.

Only recommend that series if you still liked it at the end of Book 7. I've heard the epilogue is pretty polarizing.

Also, "The Dark Tower VIII: Money out of the Asshole" is on it's way.

(No seriously "The Wind Though the Keyhole" is a thing, people)

Coincidentally, I'm about to finish The Dark Tower series for the second time. Good stuff, not quite as amazing as it was the first time I read it, but I still like it.


Speaking of Stephan King: I highly recommened the movie 1408. It's one of my favorite movies, and getting really stoned and watching it last night completely reaffirmed that. For starters, it's actually scary, something most horror movies have not been able to be for the last 15 or 20 years.

Also, it has some of the most amazing cinematography for a horror/thriller movie. They use some of the most ridiculous camera angles (from inside keyholes and refrigerators, for example). The music is fantastic, John Cusack is amazing, Sam Jackson is good, and the dialogue is witty and smooth.

The color pallette is amazing as well, it's an incredibly vibrant and varied-looking movie.

If The Room plays anywhere that is a reasonable drive from where you live, it is totally worth checking out. It's a unique theatrical experience, augmented greatly by an entusiastic audience. Check out the audience participation rituals on the internet, bring lots of plastic spoons, and prepare to have your mind blown.

I would recommend the following:

Film:

Minority Report: Sci-fi and action, and the film also poses moral, legal and philosphical questions.

Sliding Doors: An interesting concept, well executed. The film has an emotional heart whilst explaining the butterfly effect well.

In My Country: Based on an autobiography, the film takes us on an emotional journey whilst looking that issues raised by South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The Lives of Others: A drama that looks at the way the East German dictatorship functioned.

Sophie Scholl -- The Last Days: A film about a [real] member of the White Rose Alliance (a group of Germans that tried, through peaceful means, to bring an end to Hitler's dictatorship). Worth watching to get an idea what it was like in the German resistance.

The Killing Fields: Based on a true story. The film shows us the hardships experienced by people under the Khmer Rouge. A powerful film that gives an idea of the Pohl Pott regime.

Timeline: Time travel and romance. OK, I'm softy at heart.

Shiri: Korean action film. Notable because it successfully combines action, drama and romance.  Most films usually only manage 2.

Contact: A realistic look at how a First Contact situation with an Extra Terrestrial Intelligence may play out.


Book:

Society of the Mind by Eric L Harry: A book that looks at some of the debates around AI.

Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett: Another good take on the AI debate and has a few laughs as well.

{edit}

Documentary:

Five Steps to Tyranny (2000): Uses the results of psychological experiments to show how easy it is to turn a democracy into a dictatorship.

I'll definitely scrap the recommendation for Shiri, for a South Korean action film it was decent when it came out but has definitely not stood the test of time well at all.

This movie recommendation list is going to be kind of really long:

3-Iron is a fantastic sorta-romantic Korean drama about this guy who breaks into people's homes and lives in them.  He develops a relationship with an abused housewife.  It's really amazing because neither of them ever really speak and it's really interesting to see how the director handled it.

Dear Zachary.  If you want to bawl your eyes out like a baby, then this movie is for you.  I have never shed a tear for a movie in my life, ever.  This movie had me bawling around 3 times in it's duration.  This filmmaker's friend was brutally murdered and so the guy decided to make a movie for this guy's son about the man his father was.  Absolutely heart-wrenching.

OSS 117.  Either Lost in Rio or Cairo, Nest of Spies.  They're basically French James Bond spoofs and are both absolutely hilarious.  Have you tried watching the early Bond films lately and see how racist, sexist, and utterly moronic Bond is (especially Moore).  These films basically crank those up to extremes and the guy playing OSS 117 is utterly fantastic in the role.

I watched Misery a couple nights ago and it was terrifying.  It's based off a Stephen King short story where this author crashes his car in a snow storm and is saved by his "biggest fan." He can't walk and he ends up being nursed by her at her house but it turns out that she's absolutely psycho.  Kathy Bates won an Oscar for her performance, and she's probably one of the only actresses who has won an Oscar for a horror film.

Detroit Metal City is a Japanese comedy movie about this really awkward guy who wants to be a pop-singer and instead finds himself the lead singer and guitarist of a black metal band.  Absolutely hilarious if you like zany Japanese movies.  And if you like this you might want to watch Cutie Honey which is also kind of weird and kooky.

And finally

Hansel and Gretel.  It's a Korean horror-fantasy film that has been compared continuously to Pan's Labyrinth.  In a way the comparison hurts and helps it because the movie is an adult fairy tale and does get quite dark.  However, near the end it gets a little stupid and they explain a major part of the movie and it kind of loses it's mystery which is kind of sad.  But if you can ignore that part the rest of the film is fantastic and is worth checking out.

I don't know how many of you can take some gore and gruesome visuals, but i'd recommend a dark comedy called 'Taxidermia' by the Hungarian director Gyorgi Palfi. The movie doesn't really have any plot. The tagline of the movie is 'Three stories. Three generations. Three men. One bizarre and shocking universe.' The movie begins at a Hungarian farmhouse during the World War 2. There's a soldier who humps his lieutenant's wife in a bathtub which has a pig carcass in it. The wife bears a baby boy born with a little pig tail, which the lieutenant snips as soon as he sees it. This boy grows up to be a big (heavy) speed eater. Then the movie traces what happens in the speed eater's life. The son of this speed eater becomes a taxidermist. A word of caution though- the movie is quite disturbing.

I'd recommend the book 'A canticle for Leibowitz'. It's a post-apocalyptic novel. It tells the story of how the civilization is wiped out, but tries to re-build itself again. People have developed a hatred for books and all things scholarly. Almost all the books and scholarly documents have been destroyed, save for a little cache in a monetary in a desert. The monks in the monastery have been guarding the books for generations. The book has loads of dark humor in it.

I'd like to recommend a book (i didnt watch the movie so i cant recommend it) "Along came a Spider" by James Patterson. And why you ask?  :-o . Because its the best thriller i've read so far. It's a real pageturner. You will read it, think about it, and then read it again.

watched The Babysitters last night and it sort of blew my mind. I had never heard of it and had no idea what to expect. Suffice it to say that shit gets real.


I was going to write a brief summary of it here, but I think it's better if you know nothing about it before seeing it. All I'm gonna say is that it definitely has John Leguizamo in it, and it's definitely availble on Netflix Instant queue.

I'm like 60% certain that you won't regret watching it

New China Mieville book, The City & The City is really good. Different vibe to the Bas Lag novels, more of a existential murder mystery a la Paul Auster or something.

Is it just me, or is China Mieville really overrated? I read Perdido Street Station and it struck me as a massive mish-mash of cool steampunk-esque ideas that were thrown together to cover the fact that the plot is horribly thin, like brain-popcorn.

In his own words:

Quote
Iím not a leftist trying to smuggle in my evil message by the nefarious means of fantasy novels. Iím a science fiction and fantasy geek. I love this stuff. And when I write my novels, Iím not writing them to make political points. Iím writing them because I passionately love monsters and the weird and horror stories and strange situations and surrealism, and what I want to do is communicate that. But, because I come at this with a political perspective, the world that Iím creating is embedded with many of the concerns that I have... Iím trying to say Iíve invented this world that I think is really cool and I have these really big stories to tell in it and one of the ways that I find to make that interesting is to think about it politically. If you want to do that too, thatís fantastic. But if not, isnít this a cool monster?

tl:dr? It's just you, buddy.

That doesn't answer the question of whether he's a good writer, though. I'm in the middle of the City and the City at the moment, and I'm enjoying it well enough, but it's not rocking my world and there are some sentences that I think should obviously have been rewritten. On the other hand, when I heard him speak at the recent Melbourne Writers Festival as part of a panel about politics in fiction, he was absolutely outstanding and inspiring and exciting.

My favourite thing about the film is the way john cusack reacts to what's going on, because most people, when faced with a malevolent spirit, would shit hard, but cusack basically calls the ghost a dick and tries to kick its face :)

Television:
Anything with Bryan Fuller is pretty amazing
Dead Like Me- 18 year old girl becomes a Grim Reaper, awesome ideas about death and it's nature, plus razor sharp Inigo Montoya.
The Amazing Screw-On Head: Based on Mike Mignola's one shot comic, was piloted but never took off. Art is incredible and David Hyde Pierce voices EMPEROR ZOMBIE
Wonderfalls- Disaffected 20 something has inanimate objects with animal faces talk to her ("Fireflied" after 4 episodes), more girly, but nevertheless great
Tim Minear is also fantastic, they worked together on Wonderfalls
Most things Tim Minear or Bryan Fuller touch is great (First season of Heroes ring a bell?)

Film:
Jean de Florette/Manon des Sources, dir. Claude Berri. One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen, period.  The frailty of humans, the dark places in people's minds, in the backdrop of the French countryside. This movie is a poem.
Cinema Paradiso: One of the best films about the effects of film.
Truly, Madly, Deeply: A movie about dealing with loss done with love.
Brick: Film Noir modernized splendidly.
Mr. Deeds goes to Town: Not the insipid Adam Sandler version, the real one with Gary Cooper making you feel real feelings.
Singing in the Rain: I dare you not to love this movie
Speed Racer: This one gets a lot of flack, possibly because people have no sense of joy. This movie is Saturday Morning Cartoon in all of it's glory. The CGI is masterful, the races are exciting, and the movie is FUN. All the negative reviews forget that you really shouldn't take a movie that HAS A MONKEY IN THE ENSEMBLE probably isn't 12 Angry Men. (Which is also a good movie).
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: I am really sad that Michael Cera is associated with one of my favorite films of all time, but it really doesn't matter. It's just so damn great.
Hard Candy & Sleuth (Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier): If you ever thought acting was easy, watch either of these.

Books:
Stone Butch Blues Growing up stone butch before and after Stonewall, makes you realize how terrifying our past was
Cannery Row Loneliness at its most accessible, and it's Steinbeck <3
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer A man with super-smell in 18th century France. Hatred never smelled so sweet.

I could churn them out, but I figured that's good for now.

Yeah, it seems to be missing in this sub-forum, and in at least one other as well.

I see it everywhere I turn. Maybe I've got some special ModView thing going on - but why would I have a special option to report a post to myself? That doesn't make sense!

My interwebs are just fine and I don't have one either. I am lowly new scum though. Screenprint of it not being there available on request.

I've heard The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is most excellent.  Without spoiler details, anyone else think so?  It just looks like another thriller/mystery best seller to me.  I'm referring to the book, btw.

It's pretty much just another thriller/mystery best seller.

We did a whole thread about how average it is here: http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,24708.0.html

I'm quite enjoying Her Fearful Symmetry - Audrey Niffenegger.

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen the film of The Time Traveller's Wife and whether it is a) a good film and b) comparable to the book?

I loved the book; I liked the movie.  Like any movie from a book, lots of stuff gets left out.  I'm not sure if the movie would have made any sense at all had I not read the book; I had the same feeling about The Lovely Bones
