Movie General aka Chink Movies Thread Bernd 04/04/2017 (Tue) 18:05:53 [Preview] No. 4922
Watched the Mongol. It was meh. Some interesting stuff like the carousing and brawling I wrote about in the Legends thread on 8ch/kc. But all in all...

Dl'd the Yakuza Papers, 6 movies. It supposed to be 11 movies? I dunno. Anyone has seen these?
Now I only need time.

mr vampire. It's an awesome kung fu movie from the golden era of hong kong. I rate it up there with drunken master and tiger versus crane.

Did someone say nomad pilled films?

I've played all three in khantube's film saturdays already. Must say I liked Aravt the most. Both Aravt and Myŋ bala have superior scenery too.

Are these about historical habbenings or historical settings but made up story?

Bernd 04/05/2017 (Wed) 15:58:07 [Preview] No. 4954 del
Second. But both are set in pretty important periods; first during Kazakh rebellion against the Dzunghar (which ended up in Qing using the situation to absolutely btfo the Dzunghars and genocide them), while the second is during Temüjin's rise to khaganate in Mongolia.

I watched the mongol too and I wansn't very content from it too. Also they made Genghis a kcmod lol.
If you like kung-fu/fighting movies, then Ip Man and The Raid: Redemption are breddy good choices.

Also if any of you chink specialists could help me find something: I want to watch Shaolin Soccer but the only ones I was able to find on the net are dubbed. I want original voices + english subtitles.

Bernd 04/05/2017 (Wed) 20:18:09 [Preview] No. 4973 del

not a movie but a chinese diablo clone

Blade & Sword 【刀剑封魔录】
Blade & Sword 2 【上古传说】

i really like it, you're learning kung-fu and talking with taoists, its loosely based on traditinal stuff but not really folklore tier or something like this

almost completed the first version, and i don't even like diablo (2), never played diablo for more than a hour because of western bullshit

music is also good, much better than in diablo (i don't remember music from diablo, but im sure its shitty)

Started Yakuza Papers with the first '73 movie. Lot's of close shots so the screen feels crammed most of the time and the English subs change quite fast to catch the names of the characters and families. Also the creator changed the order of surname-forname so when they say someones full name in the movie it's all mixed up in the subs. Ehh.
Nevertheless it's quite good and one can feel the air that influenced Tarantino.

I was pulled in by the pedobait character but she turned out to be not pretty enough tbh.

Also watched this. I dunno what was the point of the movie. I remember seeing Kundun but I think sometimes I should rewatch as I cannot recall anything.

great moobie

It didn't felt like it. I think I waited for a more cathartic ending or some kind of moral for the story but it just fell flat. Looks good, has it's moments and some Jap characters are great, good acting but the white actors play wasn't too impressive, good ol Liam was awful.

gonna watch this again. want to get a bit of a feeling of czech language since I'd like to include there in my travels for the summer.
>The film combines techniques of puppet animation, stop motion and live action.
shit's a kids film but it's wonderfully surrealist in a way only czechs seem to have mastered (see also: amanita design adventure games)

Kids films can be quality if they aren't about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Isn't German enough for Czechia?

Also are you an interior decorator and will you kill Czechs?

Bernd 06/19/2017 (Mon) 20:57:24 [Preview] No. 8046 del
Well my native tongue is a Slavic one and I'm linguist pro so I thought I'd pretty much learn Czech in a month. Sounds doable.

Bernd 06/20/2017 (Tue) 05:04:35 [Preview] No. 8054 del
I was just of kiddings taht Czechs are actually Germans. Do you know Cyrillic Croat?

Also the debates about the Christianity were pathetic. I'm not sure if Scorsese did his homework about the topic. But maybe the book he based upon the movie is the one to blame.

Bernd 06/20/2017 (Tue) 06:25:06 [Preview] No. 8057 del
How were they pathetic? I am actually interested in what way you think they were so.

I met three priests in my life. Met as in had an actual conversation and heard how they talk with others and not just saw them performing rituals. I met a bishop, a priest who was a member of a commitee in charge of the retranslation of the Bible and a priest from a small settlement. All of them struck me as smart, learnt, knowledgeable individuals skilled in rhetoric.
What I know about priests of the past is that they continuously struggled with faithlessness and heretic thoughts. Sometimes even themselves questioned their own faith as a test of their believes and they made an effort to prove things like existence of God as Thomas Aquinas did. They participated in religious debates among themselves as a part of their education. They knew all the weak points (which could be anything really) of their beliefe system and they were capable of defending it sometimes even with sophism. Jesuits were the cream of the most educated priesthood and in reality of course lot of the priests weren't that much paragons of knowledge and intellect one could be fairly sure that Jesuits were made of quality material.
The communism despite it's best effort (like socialization of schools and banning religious education of the children) could not break the church because communists knew nothing about Christianity but the priests read Marx and Lenin and they knew all their teachings and could show the Christians the shortcomings and contradicions of this ideology and the corruptness of it's leaders and advocates.
Compared this the conversation, the debates and the arguments in the movie are... well... pathetic. It feels like as it's what a modern faithless and godless man (who only knows memes about Christianity like Jew on a Stick or Flying Spaghetti Monster) would think about what a priest would say when they question their faith and effort of converting others to their faith.
Like when Liam said that the Japs isn't worship God as they do in Europe but some caricature so it's better just to give up a real priest would reply for example that this is all and well, this is just the beginning, the work is long and never ending to chisel the misunderstanding and shape their views better and bring them closer to our belives. First to grab the Jap's attention we need to focus on small things, small and familiar things which are similar in both cultures. Let them think that the God is the Sun who resurrects every day, we already met with similar thoughts, the cyclic nature of nature, we already met with similar religions, like the worshippers of Osiris, we already met the heretical thoughts of gnostic Christians about reincarnation. It's nothing new to Christianity and we, the Church, already have the answers to these kind of challanges, we have the means to correct these mistakes, and we will aply our knowledge and experience, so, dear Liam, please go and fuck yourself. I would expect something along these lines.
Yes, ultimately the missionaries are failed in Japan and Christianity remained a niche religion and I don't expect to change the movie as if they were triumphant but such cursaders of the faith like the Jesuits who wield will and words instead of shields and swords I would depict them with more spirit in their struggle.
Then in response to this the Buddhists could have react even more cleverly. With the resources Scorsese has the movie should have had a bit more dramatic punch but it's just lukewarm.

Bernd 06/20/2017 (Tue) 21:48:58 [Preview] No. 8070 del
Hm interesting. I think I might add, that in my opinion today's Church suffers from a plague of lukewarmness so it seems "fitting" that a lukewarm movie is being produced and popularised.
I haven't watched the movie, but after your review I'm not interested anymore so thanks for saving some of my time. THat is unless you say it is really worth to watch for other reasons.
Also from what I've read it seems film promotes denying your faith for saving life which triggers my martyr niggas in heaven.

Messianics are denigrated as centrists because jew metrics take half and half of their consistent ideology and place them one at the extreme far right and other at the extreme far left, and then pretend they cancel each other out. That's because they know they can rile schmucks up against christians for being lukewarm since they'll take the bait and start campaigning for actual one-sided extremism in the name of more "decisive" action, playing right into their divide-and-conquer game. That's how they always destroy a population that forms a healthy baguette across the board of their arbitrated division.

Bernd 06/21/2017 (Wed) 05:07:59 [Preview] No. 8073 del
You can find display of strong belief and martyrdom in the movie it's just that the conversations are awful on the part of the main hero. I think the movie has other things to offer (even on the topic of Christianity, like on early Christians or confessions or temptation) and I would encourage you to watch it despite I wouldn't describe the whole movie as great. I cannot know what can you gain from it.
Also probably if you've seen the other two movies of Scorsese in this series, the Kundun and the earlier The Last Temptation of Christ then you should watch this too.

Bernd 06/22/2017 (Thu) 20:10:00 [Preview] No. 8109 del
Actually, I could put this film on my cytu.be room if anyone is interested. I have subs, (Czech and English, if google drive works or if youtube doesn't block it I can pick Czech while you use English) Probably Saturday, like I usually ran those (but I'll put the film on a bit earlier)

When. And how long the film?

Bernd 06/23/2017 (Fri) 14:28:57 [Preview] No. 8114 del
Idk, about 90 mins I think. Standard length. I was thinking
I can start it at 21 CET or something about around 21 CET, and I'd start stream with random pre-show vids after I finish dinner and crack me open a cold one.
