I was recently made aware of NOSTR. Thinking through the implementation of this project, it makes a LOT more sense to use the tech behind NOSTR for this rather than pub-sub.

Here's a rundown of NOSTR market, which seems to satisfy many of the needs we have for inventory much better than pub-sub..

Tecnicamente, César Mourão, Júlia Palha e companhia fizeram um “filme”. Mas só tecnicamente.

Ainda não vi o filme, mas achei a crítica bastante dura, um tanto de esperar vinda de um crítico de cinema do Público .^. Também não cheguei a ir ver o filme do Pôr do Sol, mas a série é bastante boa e ouvi dizer bem do filme tb, mas ele lá dá mais uma cacetada.

Alguém já viu? O que acha?
Eu gosto bastante de ver o programa "Terra Nossa" do César, onde a piada vem em parte dos entrevistados mas sempre rapidamente acompanhado dos comentários e "picadas" dele (tem muito jeito para o improviso). Confesso que também ainda não vi a série "Esperança" dele, mas está na minha lista :P

I'm thinking of Melissa McCarthy's role in This Is 40. Her diatribe in the principal's office is reason enough to watch the entire movie (which is not to say the movie wasn't worth watching, but that along would be enough).

Ditto for 'No Ragrets' in "We're The Millers." Granted, part of what made that scene so funny was Sudeikis's reactions, but "ya know what I'm sayin?" was done so well.

What else?

In Bruges climax (zerobytes.monster)

I just finished watching In Bruges! My mind is fucking blown. I know people praise this movie a lot... But, I have a question with one scene and would love if anyone answers it.

In the climax, when Harry was about to shoot himself, Ray tells him not to. Can we take that as a sign that Ray has forgiven himself for accidentally killing the child?

The Usual Suspects is my pick. I just love how the story was told in a way where all the evidence comes together in the end so that the audience and detectives realize it at the same time, just to see him get in a car and leave. Of course there are some other great twists like The Sting, Memento, or what have you, but I’d like to know what others think and maybe get some new things to watch.

Day 5: Rhode Island winner was Me, Myself, and Irene. And it’s a banger, Albeit a bit of a a road trip movie really. I still counted it because number 2 was dumb and dumber. I’m giving a shoutout to Outside Providence. A hilarious flick!

It is notable that there was a MASSIVE drop off in participation for day 5, nonetheless people were excited and so was I!

In the mix I’ll include a roadtrip or nomadic ategory one day.

Day 6 is Mississippi and I think there’s some good ones from several genres in here so I can’t wait to see.

Day 6: Mississippi

Day 5: Rhode Island - Me, Myself, and Irene

Day 4: Indiana - Hoosiers

Day 3: Colorado - The Shining

Day 2: Louisiana - Interview with the Vampire

Day 1: Hawaii - Forgetting Sarah Marshall

My partner and I recently put on Captain Fantastic for the first time and it was more intense than we were expecting! We weren’t in the mood for such so we paused to return another time, and I’m wondering if there’s any movies you all had to turn off and just couldn’t finish it. Not to be confused with movies you saw the whole thing but would never again.

I'm looking for horror or thriller movies where the bad guys are getting exactly what they deserve, their fate should be even worse then that of their earlier victims. There also shouldn't be a secret ending or something like that, which suggets that the villain or some evil could have survived. Just a satisying ending. Any suggetions?

I am looking for vampire movies that have been made outside the United States.

While my question mentions Europe and Asia, if you know of a vampire movie made in South America, please mention it. Movies from any part of the world are welcome, except the United States.

And of course, all genres are welcome. It doesn't matter if it's a vampire movie with a tone of romance, comedy, drama, horror, etc.

Looking forward to your suggestions!

Global Addiction Movies (zerobytes.monster)
submitted 1 hour ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]
The original post: /r/movies by /u/meowlol555 on 2024-07-19 17:14:59.

Hello everyone! I'm on the lookout for films that explore the theme of addiction from diverse cultural perspectives, particularly those outside the United States. I'm keen to discover narratives that delve into the complexities of substance use and its impact on individuals and communities across different countries.

If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them! Whether it's a gripping drama, a thought-provoking thriller, or even a documentary, any genre is welcome as long as it portrays addiction in a meaningful and authentic way. I'm particularly interested in films from regions like Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe—basically, anywhere beyond the usual Hollywood lens.

For example, I recently watched "City of God" and was fascinated by its portrayal of drug-related issues in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Now, I'm eager to explore similar stories that offer insights into cultural nuances and societal challenges related to addiction. Films like "Udta Punjab" and "Breathless" have also caught my attention for their portrayal of addiction in India and South Korea, respectively.

Please feel free to recommend both well-known and lesser-known titles. Whether they are critically acclaimed or hidden gems, I'm open to discovering new perspectives and expanding my understanding of addiction through international cinema.

Your recommendations would not only satisfy my curiosity but also contribute to a broader conversation about how addiction is portrayed and understood across different global contexts. Thank you in advance for your suggestions—I'm excited to explore these cinematic journeys!

You only have one scene or sequence to best explain a character. What do you pick?

For me, the introduction to Indiana Jones where he swaps the idol out and escapes the boulder is the perfect summary of his character. What would you pick?

Honorable mentions: Luke Skywalker “you failed your highness” scene, Silence of the Lambs “fava beans” scene, Spider-Man 2 train sequence

In the not so distant past I re-watched Three Men and a Baby, then I recently watched a youtube doc about the Police Academy series and then, purely by coincidence, I watched The Boys From Brazil right after, which starts out focused on a character played by Steve Guttenberg, so I decided the universe was telling me to have a Steve Guttenberg marathon.

I went back through his filmography and was struck by how relatively few lead vehicles he has, how Three Men and a Baby was his only $100M+ box office hit state side and that he was apparently extremely prolific in the 80's, one of the most prolific leading men and yet his overall filmography isn't that strong.

Then I read he consciously took a break starting in the early 90's and slowed his output intentionally, then I read a quote from him about his career arc that was something like (and I am paraphrasing here) "It starts off as 'who's Steve Guttenberg? Then its 'get me someone like that Steve Guttenberg guy'. Then it's 'get me Steve Guttenberg!' Then it's 'get me someone like Steve Guttenberg- but younger or more relevant' and then it's 'remember Steve Guttenberg?' and then circles back to 'who's Steve Guttenberg?'"

Anyway, he's one of those actors that feels way more famous than his filmography. I associate him as a truly borderline A-lister who was as big a leading man as anybody in the 80's and then I looked closely at his filmography and realized that it's kinda... Police Academy 1-3 then some cameos in further Police Academy movies, Cocoon (apparently impossible to find nowadays), Short Circuit, Three Men and a Baby, Cocoon: The Return, then he really did take the early 90's completely off... and returned with The Big Green (personal favorite of my childhood) then he kinda did a bunch of kids films and the occasional low budget thriller/disaster movie...

I weirdly feel like he could have been bigger. I realize for a brief moment, in some respects, he was as big as it gets, but I feel like he could have been bigger.

According to imdb he turned down the Tom Hanks role in BIG and he turned down the Bill Murray role in Ghostbusters... I wonder if he regrets that or if he aimed for a certain kind of movie and those weren't it for him?

So yeah... do you think he's under rated? Over rated? Properly rated? Could you see him having a bigger career with different film choices? Etc.

So there are a lot of movies that aren't musicals but still have one or two musical numbers, so I would like to hear some of your favorites.

My personal pick (and the reason why I wrote this post) is the "Earth Angel"/Johnny B. Goode" scene from Back to the Future; it's just so great and really sets the mood, especially after George finally kisses Lorraine!

Honorary mention: the parade scene in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"
