A Boy and His Dog

A beautiful movie with a happy ending that makes you cry.

If you like sad dog movies heres a good one: Hachi: A Dog's Tale with Richard Gere

"I know there are probably no arts major, but nobody watches foreign firm around here"

Started out as an arts major, recommended Wild Tales and watched it way before I recommended it on here and before Patrick saw it.

Try these foreign films:

The Admiral aka Roaring Currents (covers the naval Battle of Myeongnyang circa 1597)

The Way Home (story of a 7 year old brat sent to live with his grandmother in the country and how he changes for the good)

Not foreign:

Together Violin prodigy in China and his "adoption" by a famous music tutor forcing him to make hard choices to achieve fame without sacrificing his passion for the art.

Obsession Covers the threat of radical Islam against the West

I was being facetious about A Boy and His Dog. It's not that kind of movie.

However, Reservoir Dogs is a good sad dog movie. Very touching.

OK, serious this time, for real. The Plague Dogs is sad and compelling.

Your ideological dogma is blinding you to real history.

These two guys are blinded to racism. They don't see it. They have high pay, work all the time, expensive neighborhoods where other high paid whites dominate the scene and oppression keeps a lower profile.

Where the jobs are fewer and lower skilled you see the economic hopelessness and more blatant oppression concentrating enforcement. Taxpayer funded military industries are an island of better adherence to the spirit of the law. Although if you get into management you see the worst intentions being played out.

The existence of a "meritocracy" is the key lie found every day in the news these employers publish. Reality notwithstanding. Transparently self serving but if you repeat something everywhere all the time it doesn't matter that its not true. Even if you already know that you really don't want to go on day in and day out trying to fight these lies when you would simply be shoveling turds against the tide. They know that too.

Blow-Up circa 1966

Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni's first English-language production was also his only box office hit, widely considered one of the seminal films of the 1960s. Thomas (David Hemmings) is a nihilistic, wealthy fashion photographer in mod "Swinging London." Filled with ennui, bored with his "fab" but oddly-lifeless existence of casual sex and drug use, Thomas comes alive when he wanders through a park, stops to take pictures of a couple embracing, and upon developing the images, believes that he has photographed a murder.

Lifeforce

Desiccated space alien life energy vampires construct the "perfect woman" out of an astronaut's subconscious and she goes around nude sucking the life energy out of horny men (and women!). Sounds like art imitating life.

What more could you ask for in a movie?

Second! I know King was constrained by the original being on TV, but I think they did a really good job with the story in this "remake".

"The Lives of Others" is in German, but a great story about the Stasi during the Cold War.
"Clue" is funny and the dialogue gets more clever each time you watch it.

"The Wave" Norwegian Disaster flick on Netflix with subtitles, but very well done, tragic, but with an interesting sidenotes of collapsing cliffs in the fjords being monitored for sudden landslides and tsunamis.

"Ghost in the Shell".

Scarlett Johansson plays an anime, RealDoll assassin, whose brain was harvested by evil forces and placed in a thinking robot. Babealicious and MassKillicous in the Asian style. Excellent paranoid fantasy as her erased memories return of her murder and her stolen brain.

Fake nekkid plastic scenes while she goes about her brutal tasks, but OK for what they are. Great cigi, scenery, and cinematography, with lots of robot-fu.

Anybody mention "Ex Machina"?

Also a lot of nekkid female robot fu in a thriller with several twists. Flagrant bush scenes, but they are on robots, so it is OK!

"The Harvest". Good cast. A little girl whose parents have died in a tragic auto accident moves in with her grandparents and finds a boy in a neighboring home who is housebound and sick. She crawls into the window and aggressively befriends him to the chagrin of his seemingly doting parents.

As usual, nothing is as it seems. Nice thriller.

Worth it for some of the best raging, psychotic bitch fu since Kathy Bates in "Misery" and Peter Fonda, who has had his umpteenth shiny facelift and wears his sagging face flesh tied back in a Japanese war knot on the back of his head.

"Doctor Strange" again? Franchise fu. Good popcorn flick. However, Benedict Cumberbatch's next role needs to be a re-make of Forrest Gump, as he is getting a bit tiresome playing prodigies and geniuses.

I was a movie theater usher part time in high school in the 60's if you can believe....after awhile...I knew all the lines is the script. So it became harder to be impressed with new movies as I would know whats coming next I guess. Today the movies seem to skip a lot of the original scripts to save time and money I guess...but that destroys the movie for me cause I KNOW they skipped stuff. I get annoyed by the missing stuff...sometimes re-watch it figure out what the hell they skipped. Plus...the EXCESSIVE special effects really suck after awhile...been there...done that. Good luck!
