These threads aren't successful but...
... I saw this show, watched twice. Bretty darn good. It's about the lost Franklin expedition to map the Northwestern Passage. Some mystery and supernatural was added but I believe their real story had to be a nightmare as well.
Highly recommended.

Well I dunno much about the Northwest Passage except what I found on Wikipedia meanwhile I was watching this show. And some from a book by Kenneth Roberts, titled Northwest Passage I read when I was a kid. This book ofc has nothing to do with the show it has entirely different topic. It is based on the life of Robert Rogers, an Irish officer of the Seven Years War who led his own ranger force - which based their strategy and tactics on the native Indian way of warfare - then was a governor of a backwater frontier settlement where he searched for the NW Passage.

The NW Passage is basically the shipping route north of the American continent. It was discovered finally by the Norwegian Roald Amundsen - the dude who was the first to reach the South Pole -, and it is very significant because... well it isn't as most of the time it's unsailable as it's frozen solid. In the past few years it's importance grew as with the global warming it stands open most of the time and certain ships just cannot into Panama canal so they have to travel south of South America and for some destination a northern route would be more advantageous.
But back in the 19th century it was completely useless but they kept trying and hoping it's just seasonally frozen.

Watched this a couple months ago. The entire film is in Youtube with English subtitles.

A Portuguese military convoy moves through an African colony in the waning years of the Estado Novo. Its bored soldiers begin to discuss their war, with varied opinions: one is a cynic, one is a patriot and one seems to sympathise with the opposition. Their conversation fails to break into new ground or reach any conclusions. Ensign Cabrita, a more intellectual soldier, derails their talk by narrating the tragedy of Viriathus. As Cabrita proceeds to speak of more events in Portugal's past, they spend almost the entire rest of the film immersed in serious philosophical and metahistoric discussions. The legacy and purpose of an empire is debated. The notion of fate is strongly present: it is said that Portugal's fate was to be conquered by the Romans, to fail in its bids for expansion within Iberia, to explore the seas.

The soundtrack is good and the scenes are subtle but beautiful. Nonetheless, towards the middle it becomes too slow and weak, and only at the end it regains steam and becomes grandiose.

Yea that scene on the island with Venus, the Cupids and singing is very out of place. And out of pace between all those fighting.

The eternal trope of drawning in a body of water. I'm not questioning if that how these happened just pointing out how common it is/was.
Also picrel, that dude with the candlestick hat.
All in all it is a very different cinematic experience from what the average people consume. It's worth that hour and a half.

Finished watching Stalingrad, the movie Taiwanese Bernd mentioned with the five dudes who are the father of one Sirgay.
As I wrote elsewhere it has the taste of those American WWII movies except with lots of CG effects which sometimes make it little vidya-like. The Germans portrayed more nuanced (not by much tho) and human than those Murican war movies but 99% of them has the same role of ragdolls waiting to be butchered while the Russians are all honest heroes (even the one shittalker) with little exception. Hard faces and manliness with good heart everywhere.
Still it's not a bad movie especially considering it's a Russian creation and really can't blame them to be a little bit biased toward themselves. It didn't make me puke, that's always a boon. My only regret that I watched a dubbed version, at least what was originally Russian it was in English (subs were for the German lines).
Maybe I should rewatch Enemy at the Gates sometimes. But I just can't stomach Saving Private Ryan.

I have watched couple films recently but I'll post about something that Bernd might be interested.
Alatriste, or Captain Alatriste. There is spanish series by similar name which is supposedly a shit so don't mix it.
It's a swashbuckling film made by Spaniards. There's some historical inaccuracies and fedora tipping on XVI century Spain, but great costumes and sword fights. It's very well made and I enjoyed watching it. Also Tercio.

Finally got to watch 1864 because they aired it on German-French tv again. It's about the second Schleswig war between Denmark and Prussia (with the help of K.u.K Austria-Hungary). Too bad they dubbed the Danish speaking parts instead of using subtitles. Monrad, the fanatic council president of Denmark is played fantastically. The series is full of feminist subplots and PTSD, like the current year part, where a help helper girl visits the descendant of the woman who brought shame to her family during the war years because she would get pregnant by a serf. The essential stuff is in the original with subtitles on youtube, so you don't have to watch the subplots.

This was a presentation to the media given by General Schwarzkopf, Commander-in-Chief of United States Central Command, on the 27th of February, 1991. Within one hour, he answeres questions and gives a moderately kc tier operational description of Desert Storm.

I finished watching Alatriste >>18259 It's a piece of art sometimes. Like a painting, see picrel. Some scenes very much reminded me theatrical scenes like if they were acted up on the stage. For example when that servant/maid/concubine brought the sword of her dead master to Alatriste.

holu fuck what an experience

It starts with a wonderful idyllic scene of danish countryside, then it moves inside our protagonists house when they are still young and their mother comes to their bed to wake them up and she is greeted with a very loud fart.
Then shortly after in the barn the boys and their friend or something are jerking off into the jar and then one of them inspect the content of it using his finger.
At this point I wanted to stop watching and started to wondering if danish cinematography is like this but I forced myself to continue because I saw a cool looking fragments on YT with battles and politics and I liked it. Thankfully it was much better after this moment but I still ended generally butthurt after watching it because it turned out I watched some kind of cut off fragments from a tv-series made into a full-lenght movie, and there were many fragments thrown away that made many plots lose sense completely, they also removed 99% of politics while keeping the aforementioned feminism and the actual series are not currently available in english.

I re-watched Aliens (the second one). It's such a great movie. From the things I liked most were probably the characters. Almost every single one of them seemed to have some interesting story behind it, or a quirk or something like that, even if most of them got to live very short time. Meanwhile in Aliens 3 I couldn't tell most of them apart.
Favorite character was the corporate dude. Working for his ruthless corporation but actually he's a cool guy but actually it's as ruthless as the rest or maybe worse. The actor played that role well.
The props were also very well made and all that was done without CGI and doesn't look like it aged much (or maybe it is because I watched later release).
The horror part was gone the moment they started shooting so this is the part where the first Alien film is absolutely superior.

I'm not sure about the exact line but basically...
Then the nigra got abused by all those blue eyed dudes with pale complexion. Funny.
Saw: now that I knew the twist in it, wasn't that good. It also uses jumpscares and not just visual, I really hate it that the conversations are so fucking quiet and the sudden sound effects are terribly loud. It isn't frightening it's just unpleasant. If I want to listen loud noises I would visit some machine factory. Also what happened with the doc who hacked his foot off? Is there a reference on this in later episodes? I don't remember.

Watched White God. Hungary is a really dark and evil place with lots of evil people. They also have Polish deathcamps for dogs, but really good electronic music. Also hobos that are selling dogs to kebab places who sell them to dog fighting enthusiast that roid their dogs into killers. The question is what is the movie really about. A coming of age story of a girl, a horror movie of dogs going rogue or a parable standing for the current political situation of Hungary? I liked the movie. The dog CGI or whatever technology they used was better than Hollywood.

It expands the possibilities. Sometimes tho it just ruins the plot, a malevolent mind can be more frightening in a horror setting for example as it makes it more realistic, making people to think it can happen to them as well what happens in the movie.

Not enough action for that (and what was, it was bad). Wanted to make a mystical movie? Not enough mystic stuff either (or at least not complete).

So a week ago I started watching Jojo Bizarre Adventures which became a meme few years ago. I don't usually anime but I decided to finally give it a shot.

Story follows Joestar family fighting with various villains. Every season has a different Joestar member as a protagonist and a new plot. They acquire couple of superpowers during the story and it mostly boils down to beatings. However, those superpowers are rather niche and the enemies are often generally stronger so protagonists are forced to figure out how to put the fight in a situation where they power give them advantage. After that it mostly takes 2 punches to finish off the enemy. So it's like a mix of boxing and chess. Of course they meet other kind of enemies that don't fight physically but I don't want to spoil things.

Now there are two series that show this story in different way. There's new series started in 2012 and there's one from 1993 and 2000. The new one is made purposefully overly dramatic with characters having long monologues or dialogues in between punches, very bad cases of engrish, characters being less serious and this kind of things.
The old one has much darker mood (although it has it silly moments too), is more serious, has this cool looks of old animu, doesn't censor anything, was done by a different studio and generally felt cooler to me. It changes certain things in the story but for me who knew nothing of the original story it didn't bother me at all. The main problem with this series is that it starts sort of in the middle of the plot so might be confusing a little (to be more exact, starts where the 3rd season of 2012 series start) but I was able to figure out what was going on eventually.

Old OVA should be avaiable on youtube, I say you should give that one a shot at least. It have like 13 total episodes so it doesn't take much time to watch. Just little warning, episodes from 2000 take place before those from 1993 so watch it in this order.
Also female characters have noses.

I'm not fond of anime. I saw some stuff, probably considered mainstream (Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Ghost in the Shell movies, erm that's it) and were all right. But I'm just really cannot into it.

I'm not too fond either, however I like animated movies in general so I always try to talk about chinese motion pictures from that perspective. I often joke about noseless anime gurls but I really find this kind of style which is dominating in anime lazy and inferior and generally enough to disregard a show (probably there are other things but can't really point that right now).
Jojo had it's own style so I decided to give it a shot and was generally entertained. To be honest I think that this old series I talked about could pass as western animation with maybe few tweaks. In fact I had at least one situation in my life that I didn't know I was watching anime until end credits were shown.

You can't argue or bargain with animufags. You offer your pinky finger they'll want your arm.
It's like in the tale with the piggies and the wolf who asked if he can warm in their house and get the piggies to let one finger in, then one leg, then two, then the whole back etc etc. but just wanted to get inside to eat them by fur and skin.

I'm aware of two three little pigs tale. One when he blows the houses of the first two then the third calls Rambo who guns him down. The second when he tries to go through the door by the technique described above but the pigs put lead him into backing up into a bag they hold at the door.
Also a third one, when he tries to climb down the chimney but arrives in a cauldron hot water.
Actually now I think the second and the third version the pigs aren't pigs but three little goatlings or lambs maybe.

Btw lambs.
How do they call it when an elf bites so much from the bread he cannot talk?

With the exception of the one from 2016 (Final Chapter?) watched them all on the long weekend. Not the animated ones. The first is okay, can be dusted off once in a while, but Afterlife is trash, the others... meh, fine with soda. I saw the first three before and maybe Retribution it was very familiar. From that one I really enjoyed the scene of the simulation where she was a simple mom in a middle of an average zombie outbrake. And maybe this with these movies, a good scene here and there with a bunch of forgettable actions and lines.
Also interesting to follow Milla getting old. The movies came out with a regular 2-3 years of gap.

I had heard the Mortal Kombat films are actually canon in the game universe because since the events of the games were publicized the movies are supposed to be the actual characters (the good human ones that is) playing themselves in the films depicting the events of the game in the in-game universe as a matter of record.
I'm not sure if it's true, or maybe the games just referenced the movies in a tongue in cheek way and some autist went off the deep end explaining it that way.
Kind of fun to think about though, I guess.

I dunno.
I played MK I and II back then as a kid and even saw III but wasn't interested in it. Didn't observed any backstory at all for me it was a game where you can pick a character and you could beat the pulp out of your pal's character or other way around, if no pal was present then you could test yourself against the computer. I moved on quickly.
The movie I had never seen for a long time and from what I could tell they just invented some backstory for the empty fighting.
Now I know more but just bits and pieces I picked up throughout the years. I know it's a whole franchise and there are more than one movies. I know there's a large fanbase of it in the US like any other such franchise, not that big like Star Wars or something. I suspect there is a campaign mode in the games where the player picks a character and have to beat all the others moving up on a ladder, maybe tournament style, I absolutely didn't know this somehow, I don't even remember the menu of the game, and as I wrote I only suspect this.
And that's it.

I've just checked Wikipedia and was surprised to see there are other games, action-adventures and cartoons and shit.

I watched this ebin movie from ebin country. In Finland everything is black and white no colors. Also no music, there's no music in Finland. Also Finns like to get beaten by black Americans. (The American died a few months later after getting injured in boxing fight against a Cuban.) Also they show benis :DDD in movie. Other scene is how Finnish beauty has to kiss black American several times because camera didn't work. Also Sauna, no mämmi because Olli had to lose weight. So movie isn't about how Finish boxer almost managed to be world champion in featherweight boxing, but how he got cute gf.
Movie had soul, but was a bit boring. Only watch it if you like portrayal of a Finnish man, but it's probably still the most existing movie ever produced in Finland.

I'm in the process of watching Mortal Kombat now that we talked about it and want to have a comparison with Street Fighter. I watched some yesterday and probably will finish it today, I don't liek it. It has so shitty one liners, in contrast Commando's one liners are hilarious.

A lot of action movies in the last 20 years that I have seen don't usually have very exciting, pulse pounding type scenes. John Wick was a notable exception and the movie Drive that I couldn't finish had an excellent chase scene to start the movie but the rest that I got through was pretty molasses.
It seems like it would be really hard to choreograph and shoot really visually appealing action scenes and prohibitively expensive if it took several attempts to get it right when CGI is an option.

So finished Threads yesterday. Up until the bombs start to drop I found it breddy gud, tight like an air raid exercise. But when the hypothetic came in the picture: what would be like when the bombs are dropped the scenes started to fell apart and became weak - I guess the budget wasn't that high - and even more when they presented what would be like after the war. Oh god by the end when they are standing on a lawn and pecking it with hoes as it would be a plough field... that was pathetic - they were supposed to cultivate that piece of land for 10 years why does it look like a golf course, Jesus!
I guess back in the '80s it must have been shocking to watch this film and there are disturbing scenes and it was worth a watching but wasn't great.

After the Commando finally I could got around and watch Predator, another a fine action movie of Arnie which I seen more times than the previous one. All the tropes there from the bullet storms, the hard faces and looks to the one liners. Most of the time the person of the Predator didn't even look cheap so back then people had to find it super cool. Tho the chameleon effect was a little weird.

It do has.
I wonder how they came up with the idea of the Predator. Clearly it is the main
antagonist, but it just feels out of the place, you know the viewer would expect a warlord or high ranking KGB officer behind endless waves of cannon fodder they chew themselves through but then hey an absolutely unlikely sci-fi element. It is awesome tho how the hero and the Predator change roles when Arnie discovers he can hide his heat and become "invisible" and the one who hunts instead of the prey (ofc still on the edge otherwise it wouldn't be exciting).
I'm undecided what to watch next, Predator 2 or Terminator 1. I guess I would follow up the T1 with T2 so I should just watch P2 first.
Hm I still have the Yakuza Papers - well 6 of them, I think all in all they made 8-12 or something like this movies - those have to be finished sometimes.

Main idea was about hunting and battle with much more powerful invisible adversary, some kind of ideal hunter. But who can be powerful enough? Only magic or sci-fi person, but first one may look too cheap for that action movie. So, they invented that alien. There is almost no real sci-fi, nor plot about it (just few words).

It is wrong that they decided to add backstory for predator in later movies, although keeping thing in the dark would look strange for viewers.

Schwarzenegger? I rewatched The Running Man not long ago. A dysutopian action movie featuring a future of a totalitarian regime that puts opponents into Polish-Californian working camps. Same happens to the police officer Arnold, who refuses to kill unarmed hungry protesters (they probably wore yellow gilets). So he gets arrested, while the other officers kill the protesting scum and media tells that Arnold did it and is imprisoned for it. Arnold escapes, but gets caught again and forced to play in a very popular and sadistic game show. Never a bad mix having action together with a totalitarian future and of course bad puns. It has 2 future governors in the movie, Arnold of course and Jesse Ventura. Americans love to elect movie and TV personalities into politics.

Watched this on Youtube today. A nice perspective and subject matter: an Iranian movie about the Syrian Civil War.

It's set in 2015, as ISIS is overruning Palmyra. A transport plane is set to evacuate wounded, civilians and prisoners from the city, but its pilot dies and there are no immediate Syrian replacements. An Iranian volunteers to fly, but his son -also a pilot- insists on going, against the will of his family in Iran. The two take over the plane, but ISIS prisoners riot mid-flight and everything worsens from that point onwards.

The film takes a positive stance towards the Syrian and Iranian governments, though some lines go in the opposite direction.
ISIS members are shown as freaks, though a sheikh is fleshed out as a more complex character. Great attention is given to the group's use of media and its foreign fighters.
English (most of it poorly pronounced) is used heavily as a lingua franca between Arabs and Iranians aswell as the language of some ISIS members.
Special effects are shoddy, with gore in particular being unconvincing.
Youtube subtitles have some typos.
The plot is highly realistic at first, though later on it follows some premises with little precedent in reality and begins to take artistic liberties.
Some scenes have mediocre aesthetics and execution, while others are well-done.
Early action scenes are underwhelming, but the bulk of the movie does spawn tension.
Ultimately, a somber tone is established, the main actor does his job well enough and the conclusion has emotion.

Not a masterpiece, but it's a decent film.

Funny article. It's a mystery to me what was the intention of the author. Was it a reply for a notion that someone should shoot a movie about Trianon? After I read it my first thought was: "why couldn't he write an article about making a Trianon themed movie without writing the whole thing about the Holocaust?" He could have just wrote simply what he did in the last paragraph: it's too complicated issue to make it understandable for anyone else except us. Punkt.
Maybe even it's too complicated for most of us, but frankly they could just grab a Wass Albert book and turn it into a film and that's it.

well first of all the emotions were not abstract in those, it was solid and seeable I like the movie when it has more 'in your face' emotions. I feel easier sympathy that way. Plus Herzog and russian cameramans are generally better than generic ones. I dont know how to put otherwise, so sorry if I cant make myself clear, you shouldnt use action oriented camera in emotion heavy movie, camera views are usually underestimated while criticizing movies.

So tl;dr the details make these movies good but kaspar hauser movie is the one that have it all. I posted the link because it was related with ww1 and I knew I'll get gueranteed replies :DDD

It's a fictitious story in a real setting. Clearly they wanted to create a situation that big enough for an action-drama movie, that highlights the heroes and their heroic struggle. A heinous act that needs to be stopped.

Picrels are just for illustration, spoilered (I hope it will be) coz maybe it's better to see them in the movie.

Iranian movies have some level of international recognition, so reaching audiences outside the Middle East was at least considered, and this may help explain the extensive use of English. But overall it seems geared towards Iranians who enjoy action movies.

Not bad but feels a little flat.
So it's about a group of samurai who was ordered to kill a certain aristocrat on his way to home, and how they plan and prepare and finally how they fight with the retinue of the lord. Behind the events the theme is how to be samurai in an era when samurais are outdated relics of the past.
The shots are nice, the fight scenes... was shot from a little too close so it cannot really see what's happening but it makes it look like it is very action packed, and I didn't like it, not to mention it's the usual "hey we are vastly outnumber that guy but we're gonna just jumping around in the background until he kills everyone around him one by one" style. I'm not sure how could they do otherwise tho.
They could have spend more time on the preparation phase, make it more detailed.
The comic relief a little bit lame but has it's moments.

This is a loose adaptation of the Greek mythology story about Jason and the Argonauts' quest for the Golden Fleece. I watched it a few weeks ago, and it became one of my favorites. The stop-motion is very impressive for its time (1963).

I watched Blade Runner 2049.

Generally I've been avoiding big Hollywood productions as of lately and for a reason but I tried this one and I'm happy with it. I probably should have watched original Blade Runner again before making that statement but I think it's a good sequel.
I don't think I can write much without spoilering so I only mention few things.
People say this movie was too long (it was almost 3 hours) but I didn't feel it this way. Don't remember how long was the old one but the pacing was similar.
I liked the main character play (Ryan Gosling). He was most of the time emotionless automaton (even when he was stabbed with the knife or shot) except for that one moment when he burst with anger and I loved that contrast. Harrison Ford also appear here, but only in the second part of the movie so he doesn't steal too much spotlight. Actually I don't think he stole any spotlight, he remained a secondary character for entire duration. There was also this evil Jesus, boss of a corporation producing replicants but I think he didn't get enough screentime.
The story was also good, with a big plot-twist. The only thing I didn't like about it is that at the plot-twist itself the movie played all the previous scenes with the hints, as if the authors were worrying we would miss lots of those but eh, maybe it was necessary for a 2,5h movie. There was also this thing about racism (towards replicants) and the replicant revolution but it was sort of dropped as the protagonist decided to go do his own thing.
There's a lot of big sceneries in this movie and I think I hurt myself by watching this film on a small screen. I recommend if you want to watch it, go as big as possible.

Anyway to sum up I think it's a good movie and you should go watch it if you enjoyed productions in the like of the old Blade Runner although its not as great as original.
And remember: Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind

Seen it. I wasn't impressed tho I don't mind I watched it. Was kinda mandatory as you know I'm kind of a cyberpunk fan.
Not sure if Gosling was picked for the role for his sameface - not good at acting emotions - but feels very possible.
Huh I forgot bunch of stuff, I remember the part with Ford was underwhelming. Were some nice parts tho, some touching moments about human relationships and such. All in all it was okayish.
Didn't I wrote about it? I know then I watched the first one too again.

PS: The game is nice as well.

Also I might wanna rewatch BR2049 for some uncertainties. A main theme in cyberpunk is the human condition, the soul, consciousness, what it means to be a human, basically existential stuff and I remember the creators of the movie just blunted down the whole thing to "racism baed mkay". Probably because they just wanted a movie that brings in the dough and they themselves don't give a shit and don't understands anything of it. But I might be wrong.

This is a nonfiction film released last year about two events in the Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB)'s history: the Araguaia Guerilla War, an armed struggle with the government from 1972 to 1974, and the Lapa Massacre of its leadership in 1976, made by and for sympathizers of 70s Maoist PCdoB ideology. It's on Youtube in 1080p, but there are no subtitles. Even if there were, it wouldn't be worth your time to watch.

The Youtube video has only a few hundred views and its exhibitions had similarly limited audiences, mostly (maybe exclusively) in universities. Debates were held by the people interviewed in the film prior to some of the exhibitions. The authors assume viewers are already familiar with the subject matter and instead focus on less known details of the Party's evolution, so I'll give a brief description.

The Party wished to overthrow the military government through a Chinese-style peasant revolution and picked as its starting point a large stretch of land in the eastern Amazon on the middle reaches of the Araguaia River, 1800-1900 km away from São Paulo/Rio, north (downstream) of Brasília, south (upstream) of a state capital, west of the Amazon's border with arid biomes and east of the Amazon at large. This area was populated by impoverished recent settlers who were left behind after mining operations were shut down.
PCdoB's leadership gradually sent its best cadres to the region from 1967 onwards, ultimately building up a strength only in the dozens of militants. Logistical connections were made to the country's core. Cadres took up codenames and trained for jungle warfare. They provided health and educational services to the locals and attempted to blend in; nonetheless, the peasants treated them well but fully realized that the newcomers were highly educated urbanites from the nation's core. At this point there was still no attempt to convert the peasantry to Marxism. Guerillas were divided in three detachments: A, along the Transamazonian highway, and B&C in hills to the south.

By 1972, authorities learned of the guerilla cell's existence. Federal Police investigators arrived in the area to ask about newcomers, but the Party dismissed their threat, as other leftist groups also existed throughout the Amazon. They were caught by surprise with the sudden and unannounced arrival of 1500 troops from April to August as part of operation Papagaio. Peasants who traded or collaborated with the communists were arrested and monetary rewards were offered for information. Some peasants -the bate-paus were enlisted as guides and informants. Others backed or even joined the insurgents. Friendly fire incidents happened due to poor coordination. The military was unprepared for fighting in the jungle and this offensive died out by August, with only detachment C identified and few guerillas eliminated. But this heavy presence did dissuade Party leaders from arriving in the area with reinforcements and further instructions, ultimately cutting off the insurgents from supplies and contact with the Politburo. A renewed offensive was made in September with a hearts-and-minds approach to the local population, but was equally unsuccesful. Troops were evacuated from the area in October.


Bernd 01/31/2019 (Thu) 02:33:09 [Preview] No.22926 del
By then the Communists had been exposed and began to preach to the locals. Their morale was high and they expected it'd take a long time until the military returned. They didn't realize that the Army was preparing operation Sucuri, a brilliant counterinsurgency campaign. Planning was transferred from the regular hierarchy to military intelligence. A small number of men from the political intelligence service (DOI) and the 3rd Motorized Infantry Brigade were acclimated to rural life in estates around Brasília, took up aliases and covertly arrived in the area. They blended into the local population and became merchants, sometimes even selling weapons to the insurgents to appear trustworthy. This allowed them to meticulously compile information on guerillas and peasants, drafting maps and building up 400 individual profiles by September 1973.
This was followed by operation Marajoara in October. A few hundred men taken from the Army's elite formations arrived under total silence with no identification and immediately imposed a curfew and violently coerced several peasants to collaborate. With plenty of intel, they killed off the militants' command hierarchy, reducing it to isolated pockets in the jungle. Those were systematically hunted down and liquidated until October 1974. Large numbers of prisoners were taken, but they were all executed. Only two communists escaped, one of whom lived in hiding until 1996.

Military authorities imposed total media silence about the event (though word of it would end up leaking to the wider world) and remained quiet for decades afterwards. A cleanup operation in 1975 destroyed or hid a number of corpses, and agents still made occasional visits to eliminate traces in the following years. The government only spoke of it once: President Geisel mentioned on a briefing to Congress in March 1975 that attempts were made to organize "guerilla bases in the remote and unprotected hinterland", but they were "completely reduced".

The second event was simpler. The Party was set to hold an important meeting on São Paulo in December 1976 for serious discussions about the war, but an imprisoned militant tipped off the government in exchange for $ 150 thousand. They were ambushed, with 3 Party members dead and 5 imprisoned. This decapitation strike initiated the Party's transition to a moderate player in electoral politics.

So onto the film. It is part political piece, part documentary and part reenactment. It builds its narrative by alternating between four sequences:

-Scenes of poverty, raw materials extraction and trade in the Amazon and the Third World play while someone rants about how foreign investment is literally theft, commodity exports are evil and imperialism is to blame for the global south's poverty. It is, of course, implied that foreign trade must be closed and import substitution industrialization attempted. It's unremarkable, as this discourse is widespread and has been popular for a century.
-The heart of the film: interviews with old militants, aswell as a few modern activists. They are spontaneous -as, after all, they're not acting- and provide nearly all of the information. A notable presence is José Genoino, former PCdoB militant who joined the PT and found himself caught in the Mensalão scandal. He was condemned to 6 years and 11 months in jail over active corruption and criminal association in 2012, but got freed as part of a Christmas presidential pardon in 2014. As a mainstream politician, he's the easiest to understand. At one point he even cites the American Constitution as an argument for armed struggle against a government. Though looking back he doesn't approve of the war, and the other interviewees are similarly skeptical.
-Two generals on a featureless room with a black background discuss the war, and their repression of subversive activity in general. They are relutanct over the morality of their actions but ultimately embrace them and deem them effective. This part has the only believable acting in the film. There's some emotion to their discussion.


Bernd 01/31/2019 (Thu) 02:33:54 [Preview] No.22927 del
-The insurgents' fate. Initially a fighter cleans himself at a river and then moves through the jungle. He is fed at a peasant's house and keeps moving. He's captured while sleeping and kept in a pit blocked off at its top (this was an actual imprisonment method at the war). He is then taken to an abstract prison/torture chamber that is similarly dark, featureless and somewhat abstract, with red cell bars. Other captured militants are present. The torturers are the two generals.
-Three modern-day gommie activists sift through a briefcase with personal documents and photographs of the Grabois family -Maurício Grabois led the guerilla until his death in 1973. At the end they grab a loaded revolver. Then, quite disturbingly, the two generals are shown tied down in front of a wall. They try to negotiate and promise to give the militants names of "gringos and businessmen", but then one woman (who also appears in the interview part) picks the revolver and shoots them. The three activists then move into a street demonstration.

The film traces the Party's history since the 40s: it was repressed under Vargas but then allied with him during the World War. It was then legalized but then made illegal again. The Maoist/Stalinist wing then breaks to form the PCdoB. The interviewees don't mention that this was due to their opposition to Kruschev's "revisionism" and focus on disputes about the revolutionary process: the orthodox pro-Soviet line wanted participation in electoral politics and an alliance with sections of the bourgeoise. This is said to be a bad decision, because bourgeoises in commodity-exporting countries are irrevocably loyal to imperialism. In contrast, the Maoist wing was open to armed struggle and hostile to any sort of cross-class alliance.

The breakup is finished in the early 60s. By then the Right was maneuvering to take power and the PCdoB began to prepare for military action even before '64 and its coup d'etat. The story diverges a little to mention that there were as much as five thousand communists and other leftists as officers in the Armed Forces, some in high ranks, but their social democratic and orthodox communist civilian political leaders told them to stay quiet and not fight the government. This demoralized them and they were easily demoted/expelled.

The Left is then said to have been given an unwinnable dilemma: to be neutered as a nonviolent moderate opposition or to be isolated and crushed in a futile armed struggle. This is compared to "1930 or 1935": the former saw what could be called a bourgeois revolution in Marxist terms, while the latter year saw an idiotic and short-lived attempt at a Communist revolution. Several groups in the far left followed the secound course, most fighting an "urban guerilla" through bank robberies, kidnappings and so on. The most famous revolutionary theory of the time was Foco theory, which sought to replicate Cuba's experience. But the PCdoB rejected foquismo-after all, Castro was nothing but a pawn of the Soviet revisionist social imperialists- and instead embraced Maoist Protracted People's War. This theory emphasizes mobilizing the masses in a political-ideological, not military, struggle and surrounding the cities by taking over the countryside.

This requires a proper starting point. It must be rural, have difficult terrain and face both the hinterland and the core. For this reason the Party scouted out the country and handpicked the Araguaia region.

Then there's an interesting bit: Maurício Grabois and other high-ranking Party members visit China and meet Mao Zedong in person. He gives the Helmsman a realistic briefing of the Party's condition and its odds of success. Mao simply puts his hands behind his head in great consternation. He later advises them caution because their situation is complex.


Bernd 01/31/2019 (Thu) 02:42:14 [Preview] No.22928 del
Once the insurgency is crushed, the Party is split on how to interpret its legacy. The majority believes it was a grave mistake and what happened was not a protracted people's war but a Foco, a mere private crusade with no meaningful participation from the masses. Indeed, this is also how non-Communist accounts see the conflict. A minority faction believes it was a success and had to be replicated, with one article published at the time saying "many Araguaias are needed". The Lapa massacre reshaped the Party and the minority's view took over, preventing a critical review of the events and enforcing a mythicized narrative. This was followed by the Party becoming even more moderate than the orthodox wing it split off from, fully embracing participation in the democratic transition government in the 80s. They backed down and moved slightly to the left after harsh measures were used against a general strike in 1986, but otherwise remained in the paradoxical position of glorifying the Araguaia war and following a nonviolent course.

Much is discussed about why the guerilla failed. Its location wasn's as good as thought; this is briefly mentioned but makes sense, as after all, Brasília and the nearest state capitals have little strategic value, the real demographic centers were too far away. It was too small of an area to make a difference, too. The fighters were few and inexperienced, and the Party lacked qualified cadres. Most importantly, popular support was not achieved and only a few peasants joined the rebels. Non-communist accounts attribute this to the peasantry being deeply religious and totally indifferent to Marxism and the passions of urbanites from the core. Rampant factionalism and thirst for power are also blamed for the far left's failure in general: groups split off into factions at the slightest disagreement and militants clung on to their posts even when that was detrimental to the larger movement and they should have accepted criticism and allowed others to take over. Some activists then complain that communist parties are attempting to appeal to society at large rather than speaking directly and exclusively to the proletariat.

Overall this is not worth your time. The Mao bit is the only fun thing I learned from this, though I was also informed of a lot of obscure organizational history and Maoist theory. I failed to understand quite a lot of it because of how much jargon is used. As a film it fails to impress unless you're a Maoist fellow traveller, and most of the historical reenactment part is awful. It also failed to make me feel sad for the fighters. It's a good thing they were crushed.

One thing about jargon: I once used to buy a Maoist newspaper. Hardcore Maoists use a lot of uppercase-initiated words, literary conventions and wordings that feel like you're reading a translated Chinese article from the height of the Cultural Revolution. The result, if not byzantine, is at least clunky and out of place. This movie is actually light on that, mostly using just general Marxist jargon. But unless you're already part of the authors' ideological circles you won't understand much. I didn't.

They surely didn't read much about Russian revolution: peasants aren't revolutionary class and couldn't be core of commie movement at all. They want to own land and houses or own them already, and don't want that share-everything concept of collectivism. Only class that has nothing, like poverty-ridden urban workers or lumpens, may really drive the revolution.

Bolsheviks allied with peasantry, promising them land, but actually didn't give it to them, forcing collectivization instead, and this ended in peasants rebellions that were harshly suppressed by the army.

Actually the real drive in the communist revolution is the communist intelligentsia who are capable of organize the urbanite workers who become the soldiers of the revolution. In specific situations - typically for guerrilla warfare - they need to win the support of the peasantry living in the back country. But frankly this only works if the peasants are hostile toward the ruling power in the first place, it's hard - if not impossible - to turn them against someone who means no danger to them, to their property and way of life.

It's about a teenage grill, called Henry, who can teleport - and for now she tries to deal with her situation her newfound power forces her in. Her stepsister or some such and an Bernd helps her. She's also a brat.
One other dude has this power who is French, and it seems he fights some shady organization who might used him in the past or made experiments on him it's still not clear, I don't really care for his storyline, I guess it's there to give a background story for this power when it will be needed.

>Dermophis donaldtrumpi is a proposed species of caecilian – a nearly-blind, serpentine amphibian – to be named after Donald Trump. It was originally discovered in Panama and is yet to be confirmed as a new species; as of February 2019, the binomial name has not been formally published.

I remember that one. All caecilian traits -burrowing, limited vision, parental care- were used to own Trump and that was frankly ignorant and insulting to caecilians. They are noble and beautiful creatures and I'd consider it a great honor to have one named after me.

Not everyone understand this.

For example, Alexandra Elbakyan, creator of scihub - site that allows free access to research papers, fell into rage and decided to block Russia when someone named wasp after her. That guy actually did it without bad intentions, but she reacted strongly. Although she really had internet conflict with people near-scientific community because she is mad stalinist, and that wasp wasn't sole reason.

So finally finished Kagemusha here >>23080
It covers Takeda Shingen's - a great daimyo of the Sengoku period - uncertain death. The creators picked one version and built a tale of it by adding the central element of the film: the daimyo's double. Shingen's generals decided to hide their master's unfortunate fate and go on as if nothing changed.
I'm not sure about the moral of the story if there's any. I didn't notice any accentuated theme, maybe how the double kept loyal to his master but frankly how this loyalty was built, it wasn't shown, so I guess this isn't it.
I dunno. Nothing remarkable, was some interesting visuals, and some close up faces and expressions maybe. I lieked how a sniper explained how he took a shot.

I was pretty disappointed in the last series from the nature documentaries department of the BBC. The success of Blue Planet I + II mixed with Hollywood music turned their documentaries into empty shells with really nice camerawork and obnoxious music that shouldn't be in the foreground at all. It's just story telling, but zero information about the animals themselves. But it's a cash grab with record viewership, so they will continue with this watered down style as long as Attenborough is still alive with his voice over.

So they made American documentary. I have the notion of watching those you mentioned for a while, I'll try not to postpone it and see for myself. Maybe get an older Attenborough documentary tho I still remember stuff.

Back then Hungarian crews shoot some too, they were quite nice. One great documentary series however wasn't about animals tho nature got some focus. The title is One and a half million steps on Hungary. It was followed by ...and another million steps. Both had more of a touristic purpose, the crew followed the National Blue Trail - on foot ofc - from one corner of the country to the other and filmed such material a cultural anthropologist would lick the corner of his mouth. The Trail leads through small villages where old people still practiced at that time the traditional professions and they made a chronicle of them. Ofc they talked many other people, filmed many buildings, monuments and did many nature shots in between, and gave a picture of the hardships that a tourist should suffer during his hike since tourism was on very low level and infrastructure lacked. I would think it's part of it's charm tho.

Nevertheless I recommend that Hungarian movie, you can download it from here: >>24150
The zip contains an .mkv and an .srt file. You have to load the latter manually into your favourite media player.
The main hero is a conductor working for a metro company - the film plays in the tunnels, stations and on the trains. The story is about a series of murders on the surface, but about good and bad behind all that. It has a good load of mystic element, and it's hard to fit in a certain category, it's very eclectic: comedy, drama, crime, thriller, action, all can be found in it.

Story says that he was fighter pilot who was been shot down and became prisoner in USSR. He tried to kill himself with sword but failed and remained alive, so he was afraid to return back because it is dishonor or something like this, and decided to stay in USSR.

People do it sometimes, knocking and using voice is better that just one voice. When there are no doorbells of course.

Despite being famous for its pedo context, the movie is not just that simple. Huge poplar trees, shaking leaves in smooth breath, a lot of sun, insects and birds are noising around — the nature definitely takes a great part in it. But also there is something which is hard to grasp with words. If you like books of Gabriel García Márquez, the movie could fit into the mood.

Am watching gangsta movies. I'm going through these three in this order, Menace II Society (done), Boyz N The Hood (over the half), Straight Outta Compton. The latter I already seen last year or so, but will watch again.
Back in the '90s when the first two came out, they also shoot comedy gangsta movies too. I know about Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood which had several sequels. Maybe will try and dl that one if it's available.
So far not Menace, nor Boyz n the Hood was gripping and were only just somewhat interesting. I know SOC is fine.

Was and wasn't. And the impact still haunts us.
The problem was that in 1989-90 the people wasn't prepared to take it's own matters into it's own hands - while the thirst for democracy was there for a long time we couldn't mature for it, it was killed in 1849, 1918-20, 1947-48 - and the elite wasn't willing to give it anyway either. So they just widened the political elite with the "enrollment" of the opposition's leadership, they shared the power with them. There wasn't any revolution what could swept clear the stage of politics, where the people could build their own structure, to play their own drama. The elite is still trying to direct the country from above like back then in the communist dictatorship, and similarly creating their own stratum of cadres who are given privileges. Still forcing people to lick the arse of those above meanwhile trample the heads of those below.

For the occasional Hungarians who might browse /kc/ here's a list of movie titles which play during the regime change or about the regime change in a way. The list isn't fresh I think, just found so this post will be somewhat related to the thread.

I watched this movie called The Silent Teacher
It's about a husband "donated" his dead wife's body to a catholic medical school to be a cadaver used in dissection lesson.
The students held lots of Taiwanese catholic rituals (similar to the Chinese rituals) because the school tried to teach them about issues of life and death

I agree with commentators. The dissection program impacted the living relatives but they are not given enough concerns because most of the programs only talk about the deceased

I guess the school tried to teach students about sympathy. A professor said that it's important for students to learn that the bodies they treat needs their sympathy. And I guess there are other mental stress too. So there are lots of the religious rituals. The students have to call the cadaver "teacher" and learn about her cause of death.

The problem is that the dissection disturbs the family. Although the deceased signed the consent contract, it was the family who actually execute the contract. People like to have a proper funeral. Seeing their relatives getting embalmed, dissected and discussed disturbs them.
But most of the schools' focus is on "have sympathy for the deceased". Not the family.
There is also a problem of burial ground. The school often buried the deceased in catholic cemetery near the school. But the family is Buddhist and want a place closer to them.

I didn't really watch the whole movie. I saw it on tv but cannot focus on the channel. I don't really want to be disturbed.

Watched Green Book.
Based on real life events. The theme behind the story is very typical for an American movie of our time but I very much enjoyed it. Viggo Mortensen's acting as a wop is great, but all the other actors - with very few exceptions, and even those aren't terrible - played with such quality they really made the scenes entertaining. I liked those little moments which gave a tiny insight in the life of those people in the movie. It's also has humor but doesn't take it too far as comedy.
It's a good solid movie.

>>25510
That's a rarely discussed topic. Here too, the people mostly just want to shove the old granma into the grave and get on with the mourning.
But then the movie seems to show a threefold conflict, on one level there's science and tradition, on another the matter of will: whose important, the deceased's or the family's, and on the third level it's a cultural/relgious conflict between Christianity and Buddhism.
Do I see it right?

You are probably right about the movie. The way I saw the issue is that the family of the deceased wasn't quite ready with the donation . And it seems that if religion is such an issue they might want choose a Buddhist medical school.

Yes, typical bureaucrat, especially Soviet, is a person who cares only about his own career and well-being. It results in situations when local problems are hidden from higher authority, and people who try to report it higher are punished in different ways. So, when catastrophe happened, most of people in chain of command were utterly unprepared and helpless, because doing serious things in that situation was too extreme for them.

Locals (firefighters and station personnel) did much as they could, but big administrative figures didn't know what to do. Although they can be partially excused because humanity didn't had accident like this before, so no one know that it is so serious. And in few days they started to understand. Compared to "Mayak" catastrophe in 1957, government reacted much more openly.

t. didn't watch that TV series but read about Chernobyl in literature.

the japanese goverment will never tell the truth about this. they silence anyone who does. they say that no one has died of the fallout (!), and that they have it under control. which is bs.

what do you want me to say? not build a nuclear reactor in a earthquake prone zone?

why would they need a lid? to contain the radiation?

Catastrophe happened not because direct wave hit into reactor or such, but because tsunami broke cooling system and reactors exploded. This is truly a design flaw, because properly designed system must go off and stop without problems when disabled.

But main problem is mismanagement in disaster liquidation. As far as I know, they still leaking some radioactive water even today, although eight years passed. This is more about culture of Japanese mismanagement - they didn't even had proper robots to work in areas with radiation. I guess their preparedness to disaster and ability to solve that type of problems is on same low level.

>in a capitalistic country, same thing would happen but just with a worse result. what country can pull out so many resources and men in such a short time

Countries like USA surely can do same. They have big government and powerful agencies, from military to FEMA. Considering smaller countries, I guess it wouldn't matter if they are capitalistic or communistic at all.

the dissident right wing of Japanese politics claims that the nuclear reactors were forced on them by the Americans and were made by American companies according to American regulations (i.e. not earthquake-proof) in the '60s.

They said similar things about privatized airports. The French built an airport and put the generators in the basement as it is usually done in Europe while they're put on the second floor in Japan in order to function even when there's a flooding which is frequent.

The dissident right say this shows that American and European companies are bad and that privatization is bad especially with foreign companies.
The idea that they should be the ones having proper regulations is never ever brought up.

My opinion (coming from ill will, sure) is that they want these foreign things to fail and that's why they let them fail by not informing them.

yes the intention was always to make fukushima fail so that japan would have thousands of years of radiation, polluted water and billions of money for cleanup. just to make foreign companies look bad.

I saw Alita battle angel some time ago.
First of all I got recommended on YT the anime earlier. I liked it even though I'm not fond of Chinese cartoons normally. And then on the very next day they started advertising the live action movie everywhere around me and that's it is coming out soon even though it was in production years before. The anime made me go see it. Clever marketing.
The story is about an engineer who finds a cyborg body in junkyard but he also finds out she's still alive so he brings her back to working condition and adopts as own daughter. But the world is a dystopian post apocalyptic future so she has to fight for survival and when she does she realizes she's programmed to be some super warrior.
You know, I liked the movie but I don't think there's anything extraordinary about it. I would rather recommend the anime if it wans't for the fact they only animated half of the story and told people to go read the manga. But there was a big influx of superheroe movies recently and if you're tired of seeing it I think Alita is a great alternative.

I started watching Three Kingdoms. It's a Chinese series from 2010 based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
- great characters
- nice costumes
- captivating story
- they sometimes aid themselves with shitty CGI
- absolutely horrible shit choreography over the top fights between heroes that are eligible for kek or cringe competition
But despite that I keep coming for more.

That's on my reading list too. Not sure if I'll every arrive to that.
I like the game, kinda, I think I played with III and XI.
So who's the most based? Cao Cao or Liu Bei?

I started Origin. I'm not even finished with the first episode. It's some sci-fi with yakuza theme. A colonization ship heading for a habitable planet and passangers wake up and find the ship damaged and seemingly abandoned. Reminds me very much to a movie which title I cannot recall.
All PoC characters are collected, knowledgeable, strong and useful. Whitey is useless and clueless. Very lifelike.

What game? Dynasty warriors? Never played it.
>>26665
>Cao Cao or Liu Bei?
Damn I don't know. So far those two are my favorites.
Also now that I think of it, YT recommended me the Three Kingdoms series very shortly before the release of Three Kingdoms Total War game. I wonder how often they get money from various companies for such advertisement.

>Reminds me very much to a movie which title I cannot recall.
Event Horizon?

This show is reported but hasn't been aired by the branch of HBO Asia that has the most subscribers. I guess Taiwanese who are interested already saw it online.

Personally I felt that HBO has outgrown from America and UK and went to make shows about somewhere else. I knew they made shows about South Africa.
I think Chernobyl was a very important in Europe and to Ukraine. So I am surprised that HBO can make a show about it now.
USA and UK seem to make shows about events happened in other countries. It's weird

The thing I remembered the most is the earlier episode. the puppet king, emperor Xian of Han, who was held by Cao Cao, had to meet Liu Bei in toilet to have a private meeting.

In the past we Taiwanese were taught in schools to identify with Liu Bei. I guess our textbook used to identify Liu as the legitimate one. I guess we used to follow the (new?) Confucian tradition that identified one and only one mostly unbroken line of succession of Chinese regimes, all the way down to ROC. So ROC used to identify with Liu Bei and saw others as usurpers. But I am not sure because I never used that textbook.

HBO is probably continuously looking for new ideas, new topics to make an adaptation of them. So many content were created, movies and shows that it's hard to find something new, original and exciting. Tropes are recycled over and over again, as I watch this: >>26665 I can recognize quite a few influence, some I might can call a theft of idea, two notable example is Lost (characters' past and background story is cut into the show's present events) and The Thing (they chasing an alien life form which infects people and they try to guess and deduce among themselves who is it's host). So what I want to say is that while it was surprising to me too to found out about this show about Chernobyl the fact that they finally adapted to story is understandable.

>>26692
And what about Sun Quan?


Bernd 05/27/2019 (Mon) 21:00:27 [Preview] No.26708 del
I gave Liu Bei vs Cao Cao think some thought and I think I would side with Liu Bei more as I am more of a idealist too. I admire Cao Cao's intelligence and strategic skill but he didn't start very well with murdering his uncle etc.
I am on episode 10 now and focus shifted from those two to others, I'll see if I change my mind later as the show progress.
I really liked how Liu Bei talked in this scene.

I don't think our textbook said as much about Sun as about Liu and Cao. It was in newer version they taught us that Taiwan was contacted by Sun's territory. ( Sun was in the southeast coastal China. )
The old government identified with Liu Bei. And chairmanman Mao was a Cao Cao fan.

Cao was also a star writer in our textbook of Chinese literature. He was taught next to Kongming.
Kongming's essay was taught for his spirit of devotion to the country and boss. Cao was taught because he was a talented poet

I saw a tv show called Russia from above. I saw two episodes. One in Siberia and one in arctic area. I know nothing about the country.
I feel the show tries to describe the residents today in a positive way and blames many environmental problems on soviet era.

I bet. They ain't wrong. But at that time the "free world" wasn't big on environmentalism either.
Russia is a giant ass country with all kinds of terrain, climate, biomes, and people.They even have T-I-G-E-R-S. It's very diverse, I can't put it otherwise. But there are unifying characteristic everywhere (and I think they aren't flattering unfortunately), both Tzarism and Communism made their marks. It's intriguing for me but I just can't make friends with Slavic languages so the language barrier remains.

Yesterday I had the luck to Blue Velvet. Kind of a myster-crime by David Lynch from 1986. Has very similar atmosphere to Twin Peaks (Lynch was also one of the main creators), the looks, the music, even the lead actor is the same, both feels out of ordinary, even tho they ain't great. Has a very Freudian scene. Not the most entertaining but worth the time.
