That fan made highlander movie was really good. Highlander is a series with a lot of potential that got destroyed by Hollywood. I hope one day it gets revamped.

The original movie is overrated in my opinion. It's over the top and with mostly bad actors, except for Connery. The story is great though and the fighting is pretty good too.

If there is anything that deserves to be remade and expanded, it's this film. It was ahead of its time and unfortunately made in an era of ridiculously cheesy movies. They could do great things now.

Which film are you talking about, the fan made animated one or the original. I love the original (rest that followed were utter trash though.) But I like the idea of continuing them as an animation instead of live action. There was a decade of live animation highlander stuff, while the show was halfway decent in its time it doesn't hold up. It's actually been more like 20 years of live action, and they haven't been great. I'll still always love the first one though.

The original movie. It just doesn't do it for me. Bad accents. Bad casting. The only good thing is the actual story. The performances, other than by Connery, are just average at best in my opinion.

And Kurgan was far too mustache twirling of a villain.
User avatar #27744 to #27737 - hirollin (02/09/2015) [-]
Kurgan is Mr. Krabs. If you don't think Mr. Krabs beating the shit out of the entire world is the tightest shit ever you can get the fuck out of my face.

I don't watch cartoons. Clancy Brown is a decent actor though.

how do you guys feel about them turning movies into TV shows? seems like a rising trend
Example: Fargo

I know they're doing it with Limitless and it's apparently going to be a police drama?
I just feel like that'll ruin the movie, which was really damn good
User avatar #27696 to #27689 - eight (02/09/2015) [-]
Fargo served as a sequel, actually. It was not a remake.

I didn't know about Limitless, might be interesting but I'm not enthusiastic about yet another cop show...

In the case of Hannibal, it is a prequel, a remake and possibly a sequel if it makes it long enough. I think it does it better than the moves so far, but we haven't yet caught up to the movies.
User avatar #27691 to #27689 - ferrettamer (02/08/2015) [-]
How can you ruin something that was terrible
If Hannibal counts, it's better then the movies and close to the level of the books, which is pretty damn great

Does the american psycho movie have any depth? I was thinking about watching it, but maybe I should just read the book

depth how?

I love the movie and I don't think I've talked to anyone who has disliked it

i don't like it

you're objectively wrong
User avatar #27684 to #27683 - playercz (02/08/2015) [-]
well, I don't really know what it'S about except for a serial killer
is there any message behind it or something?
User avatar #27685 to #27684 - awesomerninjathing (02/08/2015) [-]
there's no "message" I guess? like there's no "killing is bad" or some shit like that

but it's pretty psychological, imo
narcissism is a big theme in the movie

I'd highly recommend you watch it
User avatar #27686 to #27685 - playercz (02/08/2015) [-]
okay, I'll watch it, the premise is interesting enough, thanks

Amazing actors, superb directing, and an outstanding story
Incredible film, go see it if you can

The ending pissed me off though
it would've been great if had died when he shot himself

I dunno, I kinda liked it
Still, I know what you mean, that's what I thought was going to happen
Its possible he did die when he shot himself, and just hallucinated the rest happening

Took me long enough to get into Smallville. As a Superman fan, I actually really like this, even the idea of Lex being Clark's best friend.

Although I think Clark should ditch Lana and hook up with that sexy newspaper girl. She's probably like 30-something now, but damn, is she good-looking.

oh yeah, it's a great show. surprisingly good writing too. you'd expect it to be a bunch of stupid funny jokes and the like, but it actually has some incredibly decent writing.
User avatar #27674 to #27673 - abject (02/08/2015) [-]
I think what keeps bringing me back most is simply the relationship dipper and mabel have.
User avatar #27675 to #27674 - thatonesouthernkid (02/08/2015) [-]
i like all of the insane plot twists, like there are things that seem like innocent cartoon things that you don't think twice about but actually turn out to be important parts of the story and stuff later on. and yeah, the relationship between the characters is awesome because it's based on the writer's own experiences with his own twin sister. it's some good shit I tell ya.

Does anyone remember that Fairly Oddparents "Channel Chasers" where they went to every channel? and remember how at the end Timmy saw himself grow up and never wanted to grow up because then he would stop caring about the stuff he did as a kid? Im relating to that so much right now, im almost 18 and I don't want to be an adult
User avatar #27669 to #27656 - Tyranitar (02/07/2015) [-]
My mental aging stopped at like 14, so my worry is that when the time DOES come to be an adult, I'm not gonna be capable of it.

So is game of thrones actually geniunely interesting or is it just sex and people dying?
User avatar #27663 to #27638 - hirollin (02/07/2015) [-]
I mean, that is what people think of when they think of game of thrones. If you don't like sex and gore you aren't going to like game of thrones. It eventually got so gorey that many people got sick of it.
User avatar #27649 to #27638 - sannukas (02/07/2015) [-]
There isn't that much sex in game of thrones.
User avatar #27652 to #27649 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
Apparently, if there's a few minutes of it in an episode...it's far too much and somehow takes over the narrative.
User avatar #27645 to #27638 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
1. What's so wrong with sex and dying?

2. How much is too much for you? Because it's absolutely not just about sex and dying, but it does have quite a bit of both in just about every episode.

It's a cable show, just about every cable show uses sex and death or just sex as their sell points. As it turns out, to everyone's surprise, people like nudity, sensuality and sex. And people also like the finality and grittiness of death. To many, it's a breath of relief when put against juvenile shows too scared to even show an ass.
User avatar #27647 to #27645 - tiagodisouza (02/07/2015) [-]
Aight thanks won't watch it then
User avatar #27651 to #27647 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
Your loss.

Still curious about your concerns against sex and death?
User avatar #27665 to #27651 - tiagodisouza (02/07/2015) [-]
show should be interesting enough by itself without having to resort to sex
Death i can understand in something about battles and shit but sex is just put in there to sell in case the story isnt interesting enough and i dont dig that shit
User avatar #27672 to #27665 - eight (02/08/2015) [-]
Yeah, Game of Thrones is most certainly not about sex. It features sex because people like sex and nudity. It's a common and natural thing.

Think of it like living life without sex and nudity. Pretty boring right? Well, sex and nudity in a show can give it that realism factor.

People do not watch it for sex and nudity (unless they're hormonal teenage kids?). They have porn for that. People watch Game of Thrones for the intricate, complex story lines and in-depth characters. It's a massive story, an epic. I's like an adult Lord of The Rings, but less black and white and more gritty.

User avatar #27667 to #27665 - awesomerninjathing (02/07/2015) [-]
some sex is part of the story tho in got

and the show is interesting enough without it

ah yes, one of the most critically acclaimed shows on tv is nothing but sex
User avatar #27641 to #27639 - tiagodisouza (02/06/2015) [-]
Also critically acclaimed is completely irrelevant there are a bunch of critically aclaimed stuff that i dont like or is just shite

Spartacus was pretty famous and it was nothing but sex and death
Im gonna give it 3 episodes to see if i like it
User avatar #27643 to #27640 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
LMAO. Spartacus had lots of sex and death (it's the sell point of the show), but it was hardly 'all about" it. You must not have watched much of Spartacus to make that claim...or didn't pay enough attention.

Spartacus is as dynamic of a show as any other if not more so...just with more sex and death.
User avatar #27644 to #27643 - tiagodisouza (02/07/2015) [-]
i watched it all actually, and to me it had too much sex, the death was justified tho
quit being so full of yourself
User avatar #27646 to #27644 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
So at what point in the 39 episodes did it finally occur to you that out of the generally 50 minute length episodes, they spend a few minutes at least with various scenes of nudity and sex?

You watched it all, I'm guessing you got some joy out of it. So what exactly is the problem?
User avatar #27662 to #27646 - hirollin (02/07/2015) [-]
I dunno, if you watched an episode of spartacus and didn't see at least one sex scene you would be pretty disappointed. I'd agree that sex and gore aren't the main part of it, but telling someone to watch game of thrones now is pretty much a waste of time. When it first aired and you didn't know that people were gonna get cut from the show faster than a samurai circumcising a fly it was pretty decent.

Now everyone knows, the surprise is gone and they try to gore it up to make it "better." Which, honestly made me wanna watch it even less.

It's a totally different show for them, no suspense. If they guy doesn't like sex and gore he isn't gonna like game of thrones. There is just no denying that.
User avatar #27664 to #27662 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
Nah, people still love the show. I know generally the stuff that will happen in future seasons, but it's a lot of the smaller details that I don't know. And I love those details, how they get from A to B. Plus, sometimes they change things up, so that even the readers are taken by surprise.

None of us know the endgame (That's still 2 books right there), and officially wont know since Martin will not be finishing the books before the show ends.

As I understand it, season 5 will comprise mostly of A Dance With Dragons while finishing up A Feast For Crows and will already be getting into Winds Of Winter near the end (possibly).

That leaves Season 6 and 7 to finish up Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. That's fresh material for everyone. It's probably the best time to be a fan of the show right now, because we don't know what's coming after this season.

Other than that, I haven't really noticed any increase in gore. It seems about the same as every other season, including season 1.

It was on tv right before i went to sleep and i'm too lazy to change the channel what was i suppose to do? fall asleep instantly? i can't do that
User avatar #27650 to #27648 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
And you did this through 39 episodes? So you were awake approximately 32+ hours straight, watching this show?

Sounds like you watched just a single episode...
User avatar #27666 to #27650 - tiagodisouza (02/07/2015) [-]
What part of before i went to sleep didnt you get?
I went to bed and watched it before falling asleep its on everyday here, still is even at the most i didnt get the end of the episode and it was shown to me the next day
User avatar #27671 to #27666 - eight (02/08/2015) [-]
Because you made this claim

"i watched it all actually, and to me it had too much sex, the death was justified tho
quit being so full of yourself "

Now it's revealed that you didn't. And you certainly didn't bother with that other 38 episodes...You cannot make an accurate statement about the show based on 1 half assed viewing. I suspected this from the very beginning...hence my tone.
User avatar #27653 to #27650 - episode (02/07/2015) [-]
Regarding Spartacus, will the quality of the show improve? Like I started watching the first episode and the animated blood splatter and whatnot is off-putting....
User avatar #27661 to #27653 - hirollin (02/07/2015) [-]
cgi gets a lot better as it goes on. it is pretty offputting at the beginning, but it does get better.
User avatar #27654 to #27653 - eight (02/07/2015) [-]
The first 3 episodes are the worst of the entire series. Most are generally off put by the first episode and give up (I nearly did too). But it does find its footing after that.

When people see the show getting good reviews at some point they return to see what they missed after being turned off by those first episode and then continue on. Then they're hooked.

Episode 2 and 3 improve on the horrid episode 1, but still aren't that great. Episode 4 and onwards however, most are quite satisfied and are glad they kept watching through those first struggling 3.

The CGI blood gets toned down at some point and I think even replaced with "real" blood. Can't remember when that happens exactly.
