|poeTV Monday Movie: Color of Night|
I'm having a bit of a Baader-Meinhof moment seeing this pop up here just a couple days after moving it up to the top of my Amazon video rental queue. It's from the director of The Stunt Man, which is unqualifiedly brilliant; I decided I had to check The Color of Night out after rewatching it and thinking "wait, isn't this the same guy who directed that shitty Bruce Willis erotic thriller, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN"
Fun fact: I can't verify it, and I'm not necessarily inclined to believe him, but Richard Rush also claims to have invented the rack focus for one of his 60s biker films.
|Crusader: No Remorse OST|
yeah, was gonna say...
|What's There Left|
That's awesome! I'd heard a track of theirs before on one of the minimal/cold wave comps about 4-5 years ago, but forgotten about it so this was my first real introduction to them. It closes out Illum Sphere's surprisingly good mix for Fabric and made me sit bolt upright and google who the fuck this was IMMEDIATELY.
|Batman 89 - The Joker's Museum Visit|
Bat-Repellent Shark Spray, or Repo Man's Tracey Walter as Henchman Bob? It's a toss-up
|Dario Argento: An Eye for Horror|
they really should've saved that title for Lucio Fulci
|Behind Bob's Burgers - Da Ding Ding - Music Video|
All the stars in the universe for Little King Trashmouth
|ELVES (full movie) |
|Run With Us|
And Hobo With a Shotgun! The end credits of that movie bothered the hell out of me until I figured out I must have seen The Raccoons on TV as a very, very young kid, back when the Disney Channel (IIRC) didn't have a lot of its own programming and ran a lot of the cheapest foreign animation they could find.
|France's far-right Front Nationale wins first round of regional elections|
"I postulate that the likelihood of a purveyor of an American murder's skin color being brown is significantly more probable compared to his skin color being white."
haha wow you're a fucking idiot
|The Devil Is an Englishman|
I did not! That's kind of awesome, actually
Seconding what other people have said- this production has nothing to do with the Nekojiru TV show, which is a little closer to the manga in tone.
Maybe add a Masaaki Yuasa tag? He was the animation lead and screenwriter for this, and that'll link to a bunch of his other work on poetv.
|How to Start A Cult|
Beat me to it. I'd been wondering where those samples came from...
|Ghost In the Shell- Chase Scene (720p)|
Look up "Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn." And then drink, and cry, and dump your computer in a tire fire
|How to pronounce Mxysptlk|
I haven't seen nearly enough DCAU stuff, but yeah, that was perfect. That, and all the stars I can possibly give for Mxyzptylk holding up a Roger Dean album cover to illustrate "yes"
|With Open Gates: The forced collective suicide of European nations|
one thousand million salted dicks
|Mr. Show - Lie Detector|
Really? Moral Orel (at least, post season 1) is kind of classic, and Frankenhole is definitely lesser but it has its moments and it's gorgeously animated. And Dino just finished animating a stop-motion movie for Charlie Kaufman (Anomalisa) that's getting great early reviews.
|The Great Die Off (He Mocks Us All)|
I love these guys. Saw them last year around Halloween- they played the whole show in hooded robes and capped it off by playing John Carpenter's Halloween theme. Fucking incredible.
|Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5|
The only game with a review embargo I remember not being a total shitshow was the first Prototype.
|Rick and Morty - An alien explains human culture|
I still miss the glory days of Dr. Spaceman, though :(
|Why Chess is a Bad Game|
Oh god. I went to a "gifted kids"-y thing at Duke for a few summers, and one year I somehow, by dint of crippling social anxiety, ended up stuck talking to a kid who was a) a magical chess wizard of some rank, and b) one of the biggest fucking creeps I've ever talked to. I wasn't really aware of the concept at the time, but in retrospect, he was obviously on the far side of Asperger's, and every talk with him would keep circling back to either Robert Heinlein or Mussolini.
Not even politics, or history, or military spergin', or the lowest kind of aesthetic engagement with fascism or whatever. Just a constant test of my ability to gently convey the idea that there is an upper bound on the number of times you can loudly say the name "Mussolini" in public before people start to stare.
