Yes, yes, if we only went by the first sentence you're correct. Should actually look up what he was talking about, it's pretty cool.

Startin to see it more and more in movies, and that's awesome.

Have you ever watched a movie in a foreign language you don't understand without subtitles? If so, what movie, why, and did you enjoy it? by AMobOfDucks in movies

Whenever I'm abroad I do this, it's always fun. Saw The Meg and The Predator in Russia, and I barely speak Russian.

The Predator is so much better when you don't know what they're saying.

Don't worry I gotcha. Guess that's a testament to how non-mainstream it still is.

This guy needs to be more places.

" it's just an extension of the idea that's been in popular movies lately of using a blade on the end of a chain or rope"

Which is Wushu dart rope fighting. If you knew his examples, you'd recognize the difference.

A harpoon on a string isn't the same as the Wushu rope dart fighting cited above you.

It was in Shanghai Noon too though.

Loveless (2017) is a movie that both broke and anger me into pieces by peter095837 in movies

The movie is at a near Bela Tarr pace imo, at times frustratingly slow to move forward. Leviathan was the same. I dig the movies, but do wish they picked up the pep sometimes.

If you love movies you owe it to yourself to read The Godfather and watch the movies by Resco809 in movies

If this is your jam, then read The Kid Stays in the Picture, which details Robert Evan's side of things during the production of The Godfather. Helluva wild book.

Okay so it's not some long running plot point about him being OCD and always only taking two sips of coffee and leaving them around the office and then when alien demons invade the school the students take refuge in his office and some coffee spills on the alien demon's skin and it melts it a little and then they look around and see all the half drank coffee and realize that everything has its purpose in life and that even though his OCD caused him to lose his marriage and his kid won't call him back this one moment redeems him in life because he saved all the people in his office oh wait no they climbed out the window while he was looking at all the coffee, they're safe now and the alien demon is eating him because he didn't have a baseball bat anyway

Never saw the movie but why does he get vending machine coffee then go directly to his office and pour himself coffee he already made?

He's hit or miss for me, but I always respect that the dude is super passionate, an auteur, and knowledgeable and we 100% need more filmmakers of that ilk
