    I saw it in the cinema, but honestly, it never stuck with me beyond the castle and the scarecrow. It's also a movie about loyalty during war, but never really gets too deep compared to something like Laputa, so you have this jarring third act and a dark moment that ends abruptly. I have a feeling there was more to the movie, but there's a few sub-plots vying for your attention.

    I'm more of a Porco Rosso/Kiki's Delivery Service kind of guy, anyway.

    From everything I hear, fuck yes.

    Can't wait for Django Unchained though. Shit is gonna be rad.

    I am not that fussed about Django, I need to watch it first.

    It is a film by Quentin Tarantino. That is enough for me to be sold on it.

  6. #15946
    Yeah see that's not a big sell for me either. I really enjoy some of his films but he alone isn't a reason for me to get excited. Or is Jamie Foxx.

    Jamie Foxx hosted SNL this week, he was pretty good.

    Not sure if you read what I wrote correctly because your use of the word either implies we're saying similar things. But to clarify I love Tarantino films and would follow that man into cinematic war.

    I do not.

    Wow, of course Tarvu is using that ugly ass white theme.

    He isn't about that Dark life.

    I like dark themes but the other one looks far uglier, it just doesn't blend. You don't understand because you always have your underwear visible.

    Django looks stupid. Quentin Tarantino's an overrated bullshitter who's made a cottage industry out of a cheap and pastiche-laden attention whore's approach to film-making. He's done about as much damage to the face of independent film-making as assholes like Mike Patton and John Zorn have done to independent music-making.

    Well that's fine and all for people who care about indie shit too much.

  14. #15954
    Whatever. I'd rather see newer filmmakers and screenwriters creating movies that have staying power rather than emulating the over-stylized flash-in-the-pan shit that guys like Tarentino, Robert Rodriguez, and Eli Roth cook up on a regular basis.

    I'm a Princess Mononoke/Porco Rosso/Spirited Away/Kiki's Delivery Service kind of guy, but I still really love Howls. Just dig the castle and the magic and Calcifer so much.

    I'm also a bit iffy on Django Unchained and don't particularly like Tarantino or Foxx. DiCaprio looks so wonderful in it, though, so I hope it's good.

    Watched Howling last night, entirely for Kang-ho Song. Definitely the worst movie I've seen him in. Not that it was terrible, or anything, but there just wasn't much too it (also all the other movies I've seen him in have been really good).

    Watched Woman in Black today. Not sure why that was rated PG/12 it's not. Anyway just a cold, wet, muddy film with some moment that were spooky. I hear the stage version is far superior.

  17. #15957
    I liked it. Had a good sense of build-up and pacing, if a somewhat predictable storyline.

  18. #15958
    The ending was a bit abrupt.

  19. #15959
    It was awhile back but I don't remember it feeling that abrupt...

    Spoiler!
