Can we have a movie recommendation thread? Anything goes, from animated to live action, from romance to hippy surrealism, from the oldest piece of shit to the newest cheesy CGI bullshit. Just warn people about these things, and try to provide a small text about why you liked it (if possible). Bonus if it isn't mainstream/it's rather obscure and/or forgotten old classicals.

>Original title:

かぐや姫物語 [Kaguya Hime Monogatari]
>English Title:
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
Takahata, Isao (Yes, that sado fuck), Studio Ghibli.

A movie based in, unsurprisingly, Taketori Monogatari, or known as The Tale of The Bamboo Cutter. If you played touhou, yes, it's the same Kaguya, but without danmaku. It's actually interesting to note that not many people (i.e. touhoufags) actually know the story behind Kaguya, and that those pieces of shit barely understand the plot behind Eiyashou.

The traditional animation style is really nice, and I liked how Takahata-sensei decided to make the story more dramatic than the original, focusing in the bittersweet despair that a written destiny can't be changed no matter how hard you try is. It's also really nice because it illustrates (to a certain degree) the life in Japan in the Heian period, with mixes rather smoothly with the colors and the overall feeling of the animation. Guaranteed weeboo and non-weeb satisfaction at a well-told story with peaks of joy and sadness.

Yeah, it's funny because they don't know jack shit about it. Some even believe it's a character created 100% by ZUN. God fucking damn it.
Touhou has a really good lore and universe though, too bad most of the westernpigs fans doesn't seem to see beyond "muh waifu" and memes.

Have I said how great Japanese movies from the 50s/60s are? Let's not forget the 80's, but let's leave that for another time.


風林火山 [Fuurinkazan]
>English title
"Samurai Banners", but that shit is horrible, though I can understand why they chose it. Fuurinkazan translates as "Fast as the wind, silent as the woods, daring as a fire, and inmovable as a mountain", or something along those lines. You can't make a short title out of it.
Inagaki Hiroshi-sensei.

Anyway, the movie is an epic drama set in the Sengoku period, and it narrates the life of the Yamamoto Kensuke-Bushou throughout his aid in the campaigns of Takeda Shingen no Daimyo. Includes a lot of fun, and it's actually a movie that manages to illustrate the living in during the Sengoku era. Lots of history, if you're a piece of shit weeb like me you will love this crap. You don't know how japan was during the 1500's? Checked, you will learn. You don't know who the fuck were the Suwa? Check, you will know. You don't know anything about the most some of the most iconic figures of Japanese history? Checked, you will know.
Not to mention that it's also one of the greatest classicals ever. Honestly, I consider it a must-see. Actually, most of Inagaki-sensei's movies are really good, try to check them out.

Isao Takahata is underrated. Too many people act like Miyazaki is the only one who makes films at Ghibli sometimes. Here's two great movies by Isao:

Grave of the Fireflies (1988) is about two kids during WWII in Japan becoming orphans and having to deal with the domestic battles the war created. I think this is a must see movie. It's heart breaking and reminds you that war affects more than just the people fighting in it.

Only Yesterday (1991) is very different from most Ghibli films.
From wikipedia:
>Only Yesterday explores a genre traditionally thought to be outside the realm of animated subjects: a realistic drama written for adults, particularly women. The film was a surprise box office success, attracting a large adult audience of all genders and becoming the highest-grossing Japanese film of the year in the country.

It's a great watch if you like drama centered around very human things.


Haha, don't take me wrong. I agree with you, Takahata-sensei is underrated as fuck. When I said he's a sado fucker it was because I was precisely thinking in Hotaru no Haka (Grave of the Fireflies). I also liked Only Yesterday. He focuses much more in emotion emphasis to develop and tell a story rather than simply telling it with peaks of suspense like Miyazaki. Which makes it more realistic, easier to relate with.

The problem is that most people only account ghibli as equal to Miyazaki because he's the one behind most of their movies. I personally don't think he's that great. In my opinion, he focuses too much in fantasy settings and leaves the story half baked most of the time. Take Howl's Moving Castle for example, I didn't understand half shit, it felt like a story started somewhere at some point in the past and you only glimpse bits of it, and he only threw there some romance to fill the void. I mean, maybe it's not that bad for a kid's movie, but I liked Mononoke Hime because, while it was kid-oriented, it still had a plot that didn't feel like "Well, yeah, I scribbled this last night after polishing my Marx figure, what do you think?" "Oh, well, it's you, Miyazaki-o-kami, it surely is good". Or Chihiro no Kamikakushi. It's like he rushes to tell you a story before the movie time runs out.

Nausicää is probably the best story he's ever worked on (and it isn't even perfect), and his last movie Kaze Tachinu, since it's based on WWII (therefore, realism instead of fantasy), but I haven't watched it yet so I can't tell.

Nice. Maid throwing a tantrum in her discord channel over this thread, going on a rant about how uboachan is a "trash community" and shitting on Sei. After she… made this thread in the first place, lmao.

Also denying that she went out of her way to try and strong-arm Sei into making her discord the "official" uboachan one. Seems she is trying to renege on that.


File: 1473004763647.png (5.48 KB, 367x381, nocorrelation.png)

By that logic every time some discordfag came here to discuss their drama and we complained we were the drama queens right?
Hypocrite, it's very clear the community doesn't want shit like OP's post here and that's all about it.
Let the outsiders have drama with outsiders.


No one's forcing no one to stay in this community, besides, insulting Sei every time your butt tickles isn't going to solve shit…
Blaming others for every problem around you and thinking you're perfect isn't going to bend reality for others.


Thread is locked.

I had an interesting thought Ubuu
tell me a story of the time you met someone who made a horrible first impression but turned out to actually be a very decent human being, someone you completely misjudged

There was once someone I met in a small gaming community, a core member of the community, he announced his presence by yelling at the top of his lungs "PENIS PENIS PENIS" into his mic the moment he joined the channel. He was never for a moment serious unless it was about working out at which point he could become professor creatine and give you a half hour lecture. He came off as kind of an obnoxious douche.

Now, one time I caused one of the game servers to crash (it wasn't really my fault but still) and apparently a lot of the community was pretty upset with me, while I wasn't around, behind my back, and he actually defended me. Apparently he does this sort of thing all the time, he keeps the community from tearing itself apart. There were even other times he spoke highly of me and my capabilities in that game. The things he says may be a bit obnoxious but they're more like his catchphrases once you've known him for long enough, I guess I completely misjudged him.


I have an opposite story.

There was this shy, ugly girl in school that no one wanted to be around. She was new, so I attributed it to that. Me and another friend spent quite a lot of time getting to know her, spent time with her etc, and it seemed to be going fine. Until it all went to shit, that is.

It seems like she was a compulsive liar, and told horrible things about us to her family and random people in general. I have no idea what things out of what she said were true, or if it was all made up.

One day, her grandma went to pick her up, and she pretty much cursed at us, and babbled complete nonsense, while the "friend" encouraged her. I was so appalled you could do something so malicious to an old, innocent lady, that's even related to you.

Apparently that was the reason she switched schools. She did so again 2 years in.

Hi, I'm sure this is dumb but I'm curious as a growing artist largely/mostly entirely influenced by anime/manga, where does the art of weebs or people like me fit in, in the greater world of art? I mean to ask, what would the art be accepted or seen as? would it be accepted in that realm if they were to experiment in small animation experiments, and if not what would it be seen as? what if the artist wanted it to be seen in that way, would it be dumb of them for wanting that? would they be respected? i'm asking mostly about weird, smaller weebish artists rather than bigger animation studios that show clear influence, more about people that are immersed in at least some part of the culture.


All of this seems too abstract and strangely worded to discuss, but I'll try my best.

> where does the art of weebs or people like me fit in, in the greater world of art?

Fit in as in how you get people to look at your art? The only way to do so is to just post it somewhere and hope people see it and like it. Or do you mean fit in as in find others like you to talk and converse with? You could definitely make a community around whatever if it doesn't already exist. I mean Yume Nikki didn't fit any sort of norm at the time of it's released, but it inspired so much more art and communities.

>what would the art be accepted or seen as?

That seems like two completely different questions.
If it isn't being pushed away isn't it accepted? There are plenty of websites where people post the most random and unfinished stuff and they still get at least some likes or views, as long as it is in good quality.

>seen as?

It all depends on how well you convey and/or explain it.

>i'm asking mostly about weird, smaller weebish artists rather than bigger animation studios that show clear influence

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


to clarify i guess, i'm asking where the art of people who are seeking to design or create things clearly in the style of anime or manga but not from where it's generally created, would it be accepted as that by others or would it be something else? and is that distinction fair?

I agree that a large part has to deal with how it is explained, i hadn't really considered that. but there would be a clear disagreement from people that the art is solely just influenced and not part of that culture.

as for influence and culture, you can be actively participating in a culture but your artistic influence may be from elsewhere. generally that's what i mean when i say influence. in general though, culture largely influences the individual and what they choose to make, this is generally about how though. it's possible someone is involved in anime/manga culture but is still influenced largely by art outside of that area. and when i make the distinction about the animation houses it's generally due to the fact that they don't seem to relate much to me or people like me, as they are a little less of a grey area and it seems many people have made their minds up that what they make can not be anime, only just influenced.

I also didn't mean to imply my art had no influences, which is what i think you meant to say. if you meant my art had no influence over others, i'd doubt it does as i don't see much of it fit to release and i don't exactly have an easy way of digitizing it as it's mostly on paper.

I'm sorry for any confusion i'm honestly really stupid and bad at this kind of thing.thank you for bothering to respond at all!

If alien communication is possible and the probability of intelligent life in the universe is incredibly high how come we haven't had them communicate with us first :^)
