Let's post our favourite movie of all time or a great movie you recently watched.

I'll start.

My favourite movie is Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. The movie is amazing, very funny while maintaining the seriousness of the topic. [spoiler]The Coca-Cola part is fantastic[/spoiler].

Another movie that also really like is Persepolis (yeah, I'm reposting from the .tokyo thread). It's an animation film that tells the story of the author during and after the Islamic revolution. The art is quite unique and the main character is lovely!

The last Movie I watched was Hard to be a god.
It wasn't a very pleasant expirence but it sure was very unique and interesting.
If you are searching for something unusual or have a scat fetish I would definitely recommend it.
If you want to have a comfy time you should stay away from this movie.

I watched Raging Bull recently after putting it off for many years and was absolutely blown away. The performances, the cinematography, the soundtrack, every element of it is so refined and precise. It's one of the few films I've seen that I can consider true art in the highest sense.

I just watched swing girls which is from 2004. It was really good. There was a fair few cuts that were really pretty and it's really mellow and light which I love personally.
I do have a biased soft spot for early/mid 2000's stuff though. It subconsciously puts me in the mindset of my childhood or something.

Also the main character is the qt's qt I have ever seen.

I've always seen lots of love for Lily Chou Chou, but in my case it's more of a love/hate thing. I really don't like the way the exposition is done during the first 30 or so minutes of the movie, but I like the themes the movie touches upon. I always feels empty when it ends, because I would've liked to know more about the characters.

It should be noted it gets dark though.
If one thinks one is in for a standard cute-girls-do-cute-things type of SoL where the mood is never not comfy one might associate with the classification they're in for a harsh surprise.
It's a beautiful and healthy kind of dark, I felt more positive about life after having watched it, but still, the way there is dark in places.

Also just a sidenote share; I had actually on accident gotten the exact model of lighter Reki uses just a couple of weeks before watching through the series, was so surprised to see it in there

Figure 17. It's a strange old series with 45 minute episodes about two twins (one of which is an alien, it's not a spoiler though) growing up in the countryside. Every episode has a small sci-fi action portion which I wasn't too fond of but the majority of the anime is some top tier SoL. The character development of the two girls is incredible too, you really see them grow as the show goes on.

I don't even smoke cigs, only got them cause I smoke a pipe (as in, actual tobacco one) like once a month or less.

I gotta say though, you wouldn't believe how satisfying that model is to use. Nothing like a bic, not really like a zippo either. Sometimes flick it open just to feel how nice the mechanism is. That clunk.
Got them for like $5 each at an army surplus store.

I would suggest doing a tour of all of Miyazaki's films. I find that all of his movies have a similar vibe that can't be parallel even by other Anime.

 No.565

Sherlock Hound (1984)

First 6 episodes were directed by Miyazaki, he had to quit in order to work on Nausicaa. It’s much more light hearted.

You remember the scene "The seven days of fire" ? it’s was realized by Hideaki Hanno, who later on directed Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I’d recommend Berserk. The atmosphere isn’t exactly the same tho.

I finished reading The Three-body Problem from Liu Cixin and I really like it. If you like scifi you sushis should give it a try.

Let's talk about sci-fi books!

I recently bought a bunch of shorter works by William Gibson and Ursula LeGuin. Read all the Gibson stuff, which was pretty damn good, and I'm about halfway through the first (non sci-fi) volume of LeGuin's "The Unreal and the Real" compilation. I had it before until I lost the book, but it's definitely worth reading again, so I'm looking forward to the stories I haven't read as well as another book of novellas.

Any thoughts on Ada Palmer's "Terra Ignotia" series? I thought "Too Like the Lightning" was very interesting but also kind of unpleasant/uncomfortable to read, and gave up about four chapters into the second book before giving up. I might consider trying again later though.

File: 1548616829362.pdf (703.99 KB, (Culture 2) Banks, Iain M ….pdf)

I'll chip in with two major writers who might not be familiar to all sushis.

Iain M. Banks created "The Culture", a society built on tremendously advanced technology, in ten (or so) novels. "The Player of Games" is the second novel (in order of publishing) in the series, but the first one I read. The novels can be read in any order and the first published, "Consider Phlebas", might not be the best place to start. Highly recommended if you have yet to encounter Banks' boisterous hard-SF romps.

Gene Wolfe's work is not everyone's cup of tea. It has more literary ambition than most SF, and Wolfe often shows indirect glimpses of his subject, trusting the reader to infer the the whole. His magnum opus is the "New Sun" complex of interrelated novels and stories set in the far future red giant phase of our Sol. He has written many short stories for magazines.

oh yeah baby this thread was made for me! i love chinese science fiction. (not mentioning what's already been posted here)

cixin liu's ball lightning is: great
ken liu's broken stars: awesome
i like xia jia and expect her to be translated more.

definitely looking forward to the fan addition to remembrance of earth's past by baoshu when it's translated to english (and released here).

there's also a three body problem movie in the works supposedly.

stuff that i enjoyed that seemed similar to me (except for chiang but he's ethnic so does this count?):

everything by ted chiang is amazing. if you enjoy liu cixin you should absolutely read everything he's produced. i've watched him in interviews online. i especially liked the lifecycle of software objects and this one where it was an essay, can't remember the name! his two released books are "stories of your life and others" and exhalation.

The Martian is my favorite sci-fi book. Hard sci-fi in Mars exploration era, so no aliens or weird tech, just a bunch of nice people vs nature story.
Blindsight and other stuff by Peter Watts is good for depicting the future with more mind mods which it probably will have.
Cookie monster and True names and anything else by Vernor Vinge are awesome. My favorite author for early cyberspace stuff.
Life artificial is good and all online.

Well, the mangaka calls it's a "fetish manga" and it's almost a foregone conclusion that an anime adaptation of a series will have more pandering. But I don't feel they've necessarily overdone it. Maybe the voice acting accentuates the effect but Sen makes some suggestive faces in the manga as well. It isn't wholly innocent at any rate.

I don't know if this would fit better with /tunes/ but artwork for albums could fit here.

But anyways, here's a thread for album artwork you really like.

These were used for the inner sleeve artwork for Talk Talk's 1986 album "The Colour of Spring, of which James Marsh did the artwork for.
